#2361 – Recent Stories

ENGLISH

Hello, it has been awhile since I last posted here ๐Ÿ˜€ . So as my Instagram followers have known, I have been back from my 2019 year end trip to Canada since last week. I will share the stories more on this latter on; but in one word, it was amazing! ๐Ÿ˜€

With six hours of time difference between Toronto and Amsterdam, I certainly have been battling the jetlag in the past week. I upgraded my long-haul flight from Toronto to Paris to business class, which helped with the jetlag a little bit. Even though disappointingly my luggage got lost (Well, not on the Toronto to Paris flight but it somehow missed its connection to Amsterdam despite the 4.5 hours of transit at Paris), which kind of negated the positive effect (in terms of rest) from the business class flight.

Flying on board Air France’s brand new Airbus A350-900 with their brand new business class seat!

Anyway, last week my tennis coach asked my group if anyone would be available to come to an extra tennis lesson last week. I, of course, said yes! Haha ๐Ÿ˜› . The weather turned out crappy though, where it was windy and rained quite a lot which altered the balls and the court. But it was still nonetheless fun and was a good exercise.

Overall indeed the weather sucked last week, though to be fair this was not extraordinary for the Netherlands, haha. It was mostly cloudy and at times rainy too, which made the atmosphere really, really gloomy. This kind of sucked when you had a jetlag to battle, to be honest, haha. And so I was really happy when weekend finally came along as I then had all the time that I needed to beat the remaining jetlag! Haha ๐Ÿ˜›

Halo semuanya, sudah lumayan lama ya semenjak terakhir kali aku posting biasa di sini ๐Ÿ˜€ . Jadi seperti yang followers Instagram-ku ketahui, aku sudah pulang dari perjalanan akhir tahun 2019ku ke Kanada semenjak minggu lalu. Ceritanya akan aku tulis nanti; tapi dalam satu kata: perjalanannya seru! ๐Ÿ˜€

Dengan perbedaan zona waktu sebanyak enam jam antara Toronto dan Amsterdam, jelas semingguan terakhir ini tema hidupku adalah melawan jetlag, haha. Aku meng-upgrade penerbangan jarak jauh Toronto ke Parisku ke kelas bisnis, yang mana lumayan membantu melawan jetlagnya. Walaupun menyebalkannya bagasiku hilang sih (Bukan di penerbangan Toronto ke Parisnya sih tetapi bagasinya tidak terangkut di koneksi Paris ke Amsterdamnya padahal waktu transitnya 4,5 jam-an loh di Paris), yang mana cukup menegasi efek positif (dalam hal istirahat) dari penerbangan kelas bisnisnya.

Terbang dengan pesawat tipe terbarunya Air France, Airbus A350-900, dengan kursi kelas bisnis tipe terbarunya mereka juga!

Anyway, minggu lalu pelatih tenisku bertanya di grup apakah ada yang bisa datang untuk satu les tenis ekstra minggu lalu. Ya jelas lah ya aku bilang aku bisa! Haha ๐Ÿ˜› . Sayangnya cuacanya jelek banget sih waktu itu, dimana cukup berangin dan sempat hujan sehingga cukup mempengaruhi bola tenis dan lapangannya. Tapi toh tetap saja les tenisnya asyik dan juga adalah olahraga yang oke kan.

Secara umum memang cuaca di sini jelek banget sih minggu lalu, walaupun memang cuaca begini mah standar sebenarnya di Belanda, haha. Cuacanya hampir selalu mendung tebal dan terkadang juga hujan, yang mana membuat auranya terasa sangat amat gloomy. Cuaca begini menyebalkan loh apalagi ketika kamu sedang memiliki jetlag untuk dilawan, haha. Makanya aku merasa senang ketika akhir pekan akhirnya datang juga dimana aku memiliki banyak waktu yang kubutuhkan untuk menghapus sisa-sisa jetlagnya! Haha ๐Ÿ˜›
