Never ever ever driving when you are feeling sleepy!

Trust me!

Never! Or at least avoid it....

Yesterday felt like a big slap in my face.

On my way down from Uluwatu to Denpasar after my morning shift and was on a very tired & drowsy condition; I drove my car and got stuck on an extremely long and boring traffic jam!

It literally boosts up my level of drowsiness and I didn't realize that I closed my eyes for some seconds and unconsciously lost control from my brake pedal.

So yeah, my car literally 'kissed' the car in front of it on that long queue of cars and motorbikes!

Luckily it wasn't a shiny polished Ferrari or a sleek BMW that I crashed, thank God! It was an old, bad conditioned, red-painted Suzuki Pick-up which in my country used for carrying freights or other stuff. And that Pick-up guy didn't ask me to pull over and charged me some cash for what happened, which is something typical if someone crashes another car in my country.

So I'm a bit glad about that but still, I had to face my parents at home which I worried about the most cause in the world of driving, I'm aware that I'm a troubled kid, haha..

Drive safely people...
Don't drink and drive, plus pull over somewhere when you're feeling sleepy!
Peace out!

Hellooo Bloggers,

Right now i'm sitting in a cafe near my working place, its called Cafe Moka. I just had a Homemade Fettuccine Carbonara which turned out to be suuuper deli and big in portion! 
Look at how creamy that dish is, and that egg yolk in the middle,
just pop it with your fork and yummmmmm...

I've been wanting to pay a visit here as I pass by every single of my working day, and finally got the chance for it. This place does actually feel very cozy especially at this certain hour, 5ish, where many people have finished their 9 to 5 duties. And I am one of themmm!! Well, not quite. 

Wait! Did I just say working??

Well, that was a bit of an exaggeration. 
Actually, I'm not 'yet' of of them. And I'm not 'working'. 
But a training.
Its just a 6-month training which is very mandatory as I'm doing my degree in hospitality.
By now, I just need another 3 months, and yayyy I'll be a free woman!!

Okay, incase you're wondering what my background is, I would be more than happy to introduce myself. ;) 

Call me Sarah.
Not a girl not yet a woman. hahah! Sorry Britney i just stole your line.
Currently living in the island of paradise, Bali, in Indonesia. 
Was born in the island itself years back, but not even a percent coming from a Balinese descent.
I'm a mixture of Javanese and Sulawesinese, and some hints of Chinese. 
Confused? yeah, me either. 

2 years ago, I signed myself up for a hospitality degree in Switzerland. 
And yeah, now I'm doing my second training back home. In a big, bold and beautiful resort, Bulgari Hotels & Resorts Bali, which is located on top of a cliff in Uluwatu, overlooking the Indian Ocean. 
Trust me, it's a view to die for! It is!!!! Especially when you get the chance to have a breakfast there. You're definitely gonna have this jaw-dropping moment!

Lemme discuss my training experience in the next few upcoming posts, as I have to go nowww.. :)

Oh, and thank God I'm off from work tomorrow!!

Welcome to my first post! 

This post would be my debut in the world of blogging, and am so excited to be here writing in my super cozy blue-painted room. 

Ya Amplop! is a name that I've chosen after hours of thinking as my blog title, yes, hours. It's in Bahasa which has a meaning of both "yes envelope!" and "oh my gosh!". I really like the fact that it has both meanings because the "yes envelope!" one can really describe people's excitement when they receive an envelope and wanting to know what's inside; while the the other meaning, "oh my gosh!", is the reaction that I really want to hear from them after reading those letters hidden inside the envelopes. 

In the future, I will be writing in both Bahasa and in English. I would love to write about anything that I'm experiencing right now or some stories from the past, self-help opinions, some travel documentaries, daily diaries, mostly anything. 

Well, since it is my first time, I won't be long and be boring. 

Stay positive!
