Jakarta-Surabaya Train Ride

Everyone in Indonesia spends Eid holiday in their hometown with their families. Some take planes, some use trains, and some brave souls have to ride their cars.

This year, my family took the train for the very first time. To new experience, my mother cheerfully said. When I first heard about it, I hated the whole idea. Train ride from Jakarta to Surabaya takes 7 to 8 hours. Plane only takes 2.  I remember dreading the idea of sitting in a suffocating space with a bunch of strangers for seven hours.

When I got into the train and sat down, the seven hours I spent felt very much like a needed therapy.

The train that I rode which called Argo Anggrek was very different with the typical airplane. The large windows, the endless space, the table, the electric socket, it was enjoyable, and to me, the best part of the trip is definitely the ever-changing scenery out of the window.

Let me show you.

Sisterhood Indonesia 2016

Last weekend, Wardah Cosmetics along with the great Islamic designer Dian Pelangi held the sixth annual Sisterhood 2016 in Lippo Kemang, Jakarta. Sisterhood, as the name mentions, is an annual free event for all Muslim sisters around Jakarta where they hold talk shows, clothing booths, and fashion shows. It’s the one day where Hijabers can style and feel confident in a supporting environment.

This year’s Sisterhood was my first, and it was a great experience.

This year, the amazing fashion blogger and YouTuber from Netherland, Ruba Zai, came to a visit and did a talk show as well as a tutorial on her daily look.

IMG_7273 IMG_7283 IMG_7289I had the chance to have a chat with her, which you can read in my previous post.

There were also plenty of clothing booths on sale! My mother and I exhausted ourselves checking every single booths.

All in all, it was a great experience. It felt great to realize I’m not the only person who’s looking for comfort in my Hijup. I hope I can come to more of these events in the future.
