11 Random Facts About the Countries in 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia and Some Smartass Prediction: Group A & B

Hi everyone! 😀

In case you don’t know about my obsession over football, you could first check out my previous post about the hot football players in 2000s that made me glad that I hit the puberty back in the days. But since we’re now counting down the days to the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, I want to have a special feature for this big event.

It’s because that I started my obsession with FIFA World Cup years ago as well. I remember I got this booklet with a lot of information about football and the countries that played in the tournament.

And for exactly the same reason, I want to have a similar feature on my blog. However, since I’m the queen of the random stuff, I’ll create this feature to be as random as possible. After all, I’m the kind of person who shamelessly asked my skinhead friend how far he washed his face and whether he used shampoo or soap to wash his head.

In case now you’re wondering about the answer, the answer is that he still uses shampoo to wash his head since soap formula is not so good for the scalp that may cause unwanted dandruff.

WordPress for Dummies: Why You May Want to Choose .org Over .com

Unless you haven’t read my post on the rookie mistakes that I’ve done when I started blogging, then you probably know that if there was anything that I wish I knew earlier, it was the fact that there are actually two kinds of WordPress. And if I knew it earlier, I’d totally go for the wordpress.org anytime.

I mean, the only disappointment that I got when I started this blog, it was the fact that I upgraded my blog into personal plan on wordpress.com.

Because of this, I had to spend extra in one-year period solely for blogging. And I couldn’t blame anyone but myself. I mean, I’m not really tech-savvy, and I had to do everything all by myself. Too broke to hire an assistant whatever, yet I had to pay extra because of my own mistakes.

But because of the stupid mistakes that I’ve done earlier, now I want to share with you who thinks about starting your own blog with absolutely zero knowledge of WordPress.

7 Country Songs From Women For Women To Make Them Feel Good About Themselves

Hi everyone! 😀

I suppose some of you may already know that I’m a weird Indonesian girl who mostly listens to country songs. Like, seriously, I barely have any other kind of music on my playlist. So, since I have already shared with you 8 country songs to listen to whenever you travel, I feel like sharing with you some other country songs that I love.

This time, I think I would share with you the list of the songs that could make you feel good about yourself as a woman. I mean, there are times when our estrogen is acting up and you feel so low and demotivated. Maybe you get upset over something that happened recently. Or maybe you’re just in the bad mood for no reason.

And I remember one scene from my favorite sitcom That 70s Show when Hyde, the most rock and roll guy on the show, had his heart broken and he listened to Anne Murray. And yes, sometimes when you feel so bad, the only way to do is to listen to some sad songs. More often than not, country songs are some good way to go!

KFC Cho Chicks, an Alternative For When You Can’t Afford To Buy Main Course and Dessert Separately

Is there anyone who always has to go to an American fast food restaurant whenever they travel? Like, wherever you go, you just have to go to either McDonald’s or KFC?

Well, back when I was flying, there were times where I got flying partners who would choose American fast food chain over anything because they think the only halal food they could find is through this fast food chain.

Frankly speaking, sometimes I got annoyed traveling with people like this. Especially when they travel to Indonesia.

Like, what excuse do they have to refuse the local food in Indonesia? We are the country with the highest number of Muslim in the world. People will go ballistic when they find something haram in some food’s ingredients.

Speaking of American fast food chain, although I refuse to eat fast food in every meal when I travel, I also like to explore the variety of fast food in each country that I visit. My motto is simple: “When in doubt, choose McDonald’s.”

Are you planning to go to Indonesia anytime soon? Are you on budget to the point you can’t afford to buy main course and dessert separately for your meals? Worry not, because now KFC Indonesia has introduced a new menu: Cho Chicks, your favorite fried chicken mixed with spicy chocolate sauce.

Let’s Talk About Sexual Harassment and Why It Has Nothing To Do With What I Wear!

You’ve probably read the news about Harvey Weinstein’s scandal somewhere lately, and how so many women have made the allegation against him. So right now, I would like to talk about sexual harassment and how I see it from my point of view.

Why? Because I’m a woman, and just like other women in the world, I’ve also been a victim of sexual harassment.

From the typical catcalling to screaming at 4AM because some random pervert in the motorbike trying to grab my boobs when I was riding my bicycle on my way to work, sadly I could tell you this sad phrase: been there, done that.

Lately, I’ve always caught in a fight with my Mom because of the clothes that I wear. I’ve gained weight significantly ever since I came back to my hometown, hence almost all of my clothes got a little tighter and shorter to my current size. And according to my Mom, it makes her feel uncomfortable as strangers tend to take time in staring at me and my body just because of what I wear.

No matter how much I love my Mom, I have to admit that my Mom doesn’t know everything about my life. Or how much the trauma I got to hide from her just so she could stop worrying about me when I was away.
