Review: Rose-Shaped Menstrual Cup Travel Pack from Sileu Cup

Hi, everyone… How’s everything going?

If you’ve followed me on Instagram for over a year, I think you know that I’ve been using menstrual cup since earlier last year. I’m not saying that I’m some kind of an activist when it comes to menstrual cup, but I definitely recommend menstrual cup for all the women out there!

When I just got introduced to the cup, I actually wanted to write something about it on this blog. However, since I found almost nothing was written about menstrual cup from the user’s point of view in Indonesian, I ended up writing it on my Indonesian blog. The written in Indonesian about menstrual cup definitely has gone viral, that some people approached me for either consulting or interviewing me for their research about menstrual cup.

I’ve already convinced some girls in my circle to use menstrual cup. My sister is now also using the cup during her cycle, even though she wasn’t sure at first.

And just when I’m here to promote the advantages of using the cup during our menstrual cycle, Sileu Cup sent me a travel pack to be reviewed. I received their travel cup last month just a day after my cycle ended, so I just got a chance to try their pack recently.

So, how is it?

Nusa Penida Trip & Tips: How to Get Around the Island Without Booking a Tour in Advance

Long before I made my way to visit Bali, I’ve heard a lot of good stuff about the three small islands around the province: Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan. The only misleading terms that I’ve heard are that some people refer to them as “Nusa islands”.

Here’s the thing… Nusa itself literally means island in Sanskrit, both Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan are small islands that are still parts of Bali province. They are currently under the subdistrict of Klungkung regency, the smallest regency in the province. And yes, I’m fun at the party because there are times when I just have to be politically correct about some trivia! 😛

The three islands have gained popularity in the past few years, and it’s not without reason that they have. First, the local people really appreciate the effort of the current government to promote the tourism in the area. And since it’s quite recent since they came to the surface of Bali tourism, the islands are less touristy than the main Bali island.

So, when I finally planned out to visit Nusa Penida, I found out one thing about the island that kinda turned me off: Nusa Penida tour is freaking expensive!

What You Could Get in Omaha for $10 – What’s There to See in the Biggest City of Nebraska

After covering Islamorada last week, today we will remain in the United States of America to cover another city in another state. And this time, we’re going to aim to the state of Nebraska.

As some of you probably know, I know nothing much about travel destinations in America. However, thanks to the knowledge gained from Hollywood University, I suppose I could get some American jokes, antics, and stereotypes. And when it comes to Omaha, Nebraska… One thing that I remember about it is that it’s the hometown of Penny from The Big Bang Theory.

Other than that, based on some jokes I heard on the TV show… I suppose Omaha is not that popular as a travel destination in America. Let alone for foreigners who might aim for big cities like New York or Washington D.C, it seems like even people in America rarely has Omaha on their bucket list.

But if you’re a traveler like me who prefers to go to some off-the-beaten places, then maybe you should consider Omaha next time. Thanks to SJ of The Prosperous Blonde who will cover the city on our $10 series today! 🙂

Bali Travel Tips: What You Need to Know About Fast Boat to Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida has become one of the hottest spots to visit around Bali and its surroundings these days. It’s not without any reason that some people strongly suggest Nusa Penida as a part of the itinerary, because now that I’ve been to Bali for the first time… I think Nusa Penida is the only place that I genuinely liked and enjoyed during my last trip.

When I arranged the itinerary for this Bali trip, I was already planning to go to Nusa Penida. However, I was a bit hesitant to book a tour since everything I found on the internet is freaking expensive. The average price of the tour for Nusa Penida starts from IDR 600,000 (around $42 USD) per pax, and I was traveling with my mom and my brother.

I’m the kind of person who is absolutely price-sensitive, and I find the price quite expensive. I mean, if the price is that high, with the same amount of money I could actually book a flight back home. Therefore, I decided to just do everything on my own.

It’s not that we were in a really tight budget, if anything I was quite adventurous when I decided to just go to Nusa Penida first and see what options I could find once I get there. At first, I checked the boat schedule from Bali to Nusa Penida through Easybook.

That, only to find out that the boat ticket isn’t so cheap either. The ticket starts from IDR 150,000 (around $10 USD) one way. As I doubt that the price would be that high, I did some research in my mother tongue Indonesian… Only to find out that the average price for the boat ticket is actually half of it.
