God is faithful!

Hey! I just got back from Taiwan and there are sooooo many things that I wanted to share :)

Let me start by saying that God is faithful! (Yeah I went straight to the point, haha)

How many of you have been holding onto your dreams and then you watched it crashed and burnt? I believe many of us have been in that kind of situation..

When that happened, that's the moment when we started to doubt God that He is faithful.

Earlier in April, I got called by an agency to do/host an Indonesian TV Show in Taiwan. I got pretty excited when I found out about that. However, at first they were going to film the show on the 3rd of May which was the date of my final defense. So, I told them that I can only fly to Taiwan after the 3rd of May. Long story short, I didn't hear from them anymore so I thought they cancelled on me.

To my surprise, after the 3rd of May they called me again and told me that they still wanted me to do the show. Unfortunately (or actually fortunately!), during the time that they didn't call, I already arranged a ministry trip to Jogjakarta. To be honest it was a hard decision, don't get me wrong, I love to minister to people for Jesus Christ but it was also a rare opportunity to film a show in Taiwan. So, I remember I made the decision that no matter what "Jesus is first". We (me and my mom) refused the opportunity and the production house people even asked us twice to think about it but our decision was final.

A week passed by, I went to Jogjakarta, preached there, many souls got saved (it's totally a whole another story!) and I went back to Jakarta. Suddenly, out of nowhere the production house people called again and asked my mom if we could meet up somewhere. We were kind of confused but we said "Yes" anyway.

So, fast-forward, we met up with the production house and they told us the reason why they called again. Apparently, they already CHOSE another host and BOUGHT the ticket to Taiwan for her and they were going to fly in the 2nd week of May but... here is the crazy part, the people from Taitra/Taiwan Trade (their client) still WANT ME to do the show and no other.

speechless..

I am no one, I am no one without Christ. He is the only "added value" in me.

I was so amazed by His work and I believed He would send me to Taiwan for a reason! and He did!

In Taiwan, I got to meet so many people to tell them about Christ and we got to be friends with
the "Bread of Life" church people. I should totally write a new blog about it :)

The point is, God is faithful.. He never breaks His promise.

But the most important thing to do is to hold on onto Him more than holding onto His promises! :)

When things don't go the way you planned, remind yourself "God is faithful, God is faithful, God is faithful" orrrr
just read this blog. tehehehehe

Surface Skin Habit

Surface Skin Habit


Hi girls! Jumat lalu, aku berkesempatan untuk mencoba Hydra Facial di Surface Skin Habit yang berlokasi di lantai dasar Cilandak Townsquare (Citos). Tempatnya lucu & cozy bangeet..


Aku ingin share sedikit nih tentang pengalaman-ku waktu facial untuk pertama kali di Surface Skin Habit :)

Pas pertama kali masuk, langsung suka banget sama atmosphere and ambience-nya yang super homey and cozy. Staff-nya juga ramah banget so I really feel welcomed there..

When I first got there, yang mereka lakuin adalah men-register data aku.. Nama, Umur, Riwayat alergi kulit dsb. Setelah itu, nggak beberapa lama kemudian, mereka langsung bawa aku ke suatu ruangan dimana aku bisa berkonsultasi langsung dengan dokternya tentang kulit aku. Ruangannya juga nyaman dan bersih (that's the most important thing!) Naah.. disitu aku konsul ke dokter-nya kalau kulit aku sebenernya ga terlalu berjerawat tapi sering ada bruntusan atau komedo kecil2.. Ternyata, setelah aku konsul, memang komed…

Keep Moving Forward

I think this is the biggest lesson that I’ve learned in my life.. We experience loss, heartache and pain in this life but we have to choose to keep moving forward. I remember when I didn’t win Miss Indonesia 2013, I was really sad.. I could say that God knows the best but still I was disappointed at myself at that time and that was the time when I had to choose to move forward.. When I lost my dad in the beginning of 2017, I could just choose to lock myself in my room and cry every single day, but I knew that I had to move forward. When I got rejected by a company, I could just keep blaming myself and stop trying but I just moved forward.. it’s so easy to say it when we don’t know exactly what that person has been going through. I don’t think you would say “just move forward” when someone’s child was killed by a reckless person.. you wouldn’t say “just move forward” when someone is diagnosed with a chronic disease.. we don’t say things like that. That’s the thing. Whether it’s an emot…

How to be happy?

It’s been 2 weeks since I posted my blog in the beginning of this year. Within 2 weeks, so many things have happened. Good things and bad things. Sometimes we can’t stop the bad things from happening in life and when that happens, usually we forget all of the good things that we have or those we once had. In the beginning of this year, I wrote about choosing to be happy as my New Year’s resolution but I broke that off already :p There were days that I was so grumpy and unhappy.
As I’m sitting on my bed right now, I am thinking to myself “I wrote about choosing to be happy but I never wrote about how to be happy??” Let’s say, you already CHOOSE to be happy now but you don’t know HOW to be happy in the middle of the chaos and all of your problems. HOW to be happy when everyone around you is one step ahead of you and you’re still at the same place where you were last year. HOW to be happy when you have to pay the bill but the amount in your bank account is not sufficient. HOW to be happy …
