April 2018, definitely it was one of the most excited month in 2018, even in my life. I had a short trip to part of Kepulauan Seribu (thousand islands), together with Rizaq, Binti, Dini, and Jerry. On 8th, I celebrate Dini’s birthday, and a day before it, I “met” Dwike Novellyni for the first time. We’re not literally met but we had a long conversation and it continue until today. I also had a trip with her at end of April to Yogyakarta. It was, remarkable.
May, I got my birthday, this month I got several presents directly from some people, and one of it is from Dwike. She gave me a cattle to heat litre of water, a thoughtful one, thanks! I also had trip to Dufan, this time we went to Sea World! Another big step I had made was, I started to go to church. This month, we also had our first “official” date, she did her work while I’m just accompany her to Cilandak Transmart. Oh not forgot to mention, my office moved from Utan Kayu, a remote area in Jakarta to Bidakara Building at Pancoran, cool!
June, I become closer with Dwike, we start to spend more time together. At the first weekend of the month, I went to Yogyakarta (again) with some Ninja fellas, thanks for them that provide me with everything, happy to be your tour guide. At the end of the month I ask her to have vacation together to Bandung. It’s a one day trip and it was fun! We met my mom there as well.
July, I met Daniel, Monic, Gina and friends in Super Sambal and later hang out with Dwike (later I will call her Noni) in Central Park, this time we print our pictures for the first time and the result was nice! Like it.
August 2nd, Daniel had his birthday, we celebrate it in office. Later one of GSY family passed away and I push myself to be documentation guy in the ceremony, not so success though. Around middle of the month, after morning pray, I and Noni taught Ello about high school math, thanks my brain got refreshed! Another day in middle of August, I and Noni thought about selling some online products, then we did the photo take for all the products. We prepared some photo shoot accessories and stuffs. Binti also held her birthday this month, we went out to Sushi Ya in TIS, Tebet.
September, on 2nd, we went to Asian Games 2018 in Senayan with some new friends from church. Unfortunately it was raining that time so we got soaked up by water. This month, I also bought a mini drone called Tello, it wasn’t that good yet still gave decent drone experience.
October, It was another big month in 2018, I managed to propose her to be my girlfriend and she agreed with me, yeay!! A week after I proposed her, her father passed away, both of us took care for his funeral process and thanks God everything run smooth. At end of the month, Daniel got his wedding and a week later, Noni had a business trip to Sulawesi at the end of November. I planned to be tagged along with her, but the time is not right, and I need to stay in Jakarta.
November, my girlfriend had her birthday on 4th November, I had some surprise for her although she’s not like my present. Sorry for that!! A week later, after her birthday, his grandpa got weaker, we had some time to keep visit and help her Kong. Unfortunately her Kong passed away.
