I went to Surabaya for 3 days. I can’t really get the time to write blogs at that time. Woke up quite late for 2 days because we went home 2-3 a.m. Met some unknown relatives here that I never met (mom’s cousins and children). Pasar Atom is like ITC Mangga Dua in Jakarta but much more smaller. I bought a bag, kentang bawang snack (fav snack all time) and I bought coffees 🙂 Love love it 💕
The first and second day we met my uncle (aunt’s and mom’s cousin). He is really friendly and fun. I actually got to know a daughter of his but unfortunately she was in Jakarta when we went to Surabaya.
At night we went to watch Annabelle with a relative that is 6 years younger than me. The film was scary. I love horror movies but I’m scared of the jump scare. Anyway. My relative is a nice girl. We have a chance to actually get to know each other. Anyway after the film we went to McDonald’s and spent another 1 to 2 hours together. I was already tired since I’m used to stay at home.
Next day we went to Pasar Atom. I don’t really like that kind of places. Gets me anxious and tired fast. I don’t like the crowd but I like to buy the things XD. Oh and I was scared of taking pictures here because me and my cousin just witnessed a robbery just outside Pasar Atom (across from where we were standing). Well I did not really see the robber took something from the guy but it just happened right before we crossed the road to Pasar Atom.
At night we went with the same relative again with her boyfriend going for a Karaoke. Went to McDonald’s again. Very tired I slept until 10 a.m. I think it’s past my time like going home late. Haha. Maybe when I was still 22 I’m still excited to go.
Anyway not really much anything we did. Just met a few relatives and went back to Semarang.
My intention going was just to have a little refreshment and go outside my house once in awhile, also to talk to my aunt and grandma about my problems. They seemed to understand more than my family. I wish I went here for culinary but no we did not. Even in Surabaya we only went for shopping and meet relatives.
I am happy that I meet some of my relatives in Surabaya so that I could get to know them. My mom is never a sociable person. She doesn’t like to be around family very much. I don’t know why…maybe she ever had a traumatic event before. I don’t know…but my aunt is different she is very sociable and manage to get connected to the family (her cousins and so on). Me, I love to connect with my relatives and friends. I never hated to meet them, it’s just that now because I had this problem, it’s really hard for me to meet people…but I’m still trying 🙂
