[Travel Photo Diary] Singapore 2017

Went to Singapore a few weeks ago with my mom and sis. It's my first time going to Singapore and it was fun. My favorite experiences goes to Universal Studio Singapore and Yayoi Kusama's art exhibition at National Gallery Singapore. I felt so lucky that I managed to go to the exhibition. Yayoi Kusama's art is kind of unique and colorful. Also checked out some 'touristic' places like Chinatown, Bugis Street, Little India, Orchard Road, Marina Bay Sands, Gardens By The Bay, etc. and most of them are satisfying. Missed Haji Lane and Clarke Quay (and many more) but it's okay; means I gotta go there again next time!

[Movie] Spider-Man: Homecoming

Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Directed by: Jon Watts
Written by: Jon Watts, John Francis Daley, Jonathan M. Goldstein
Release date: July 5, 2017 (Indonesia)
Production house: Marvel Studios, Columbia Pictures, Pascal Pictures
Duration: 2 hours 13 mins. 

To be honest, Spiderman is one of my favorite superhero character. Why? I think it's must because he's so playful and funny. He talks a lot during fights and his carelessness is sooo amusing. Despite that, he's a clever student! I like that. I like how he can keep up his scores mostly because of his brilliant brain. A nerd that is actually a talkative and lovable person! Such my type :))))))

Properly presenting Tom Holland as the brand new Spiderman 3.0, I think Marvel has done a great job in this movie! Tom Holland himself is an easy-going and humorous person, which makes his personality suits Spiderman's character. Plus, he's cute!! Although I really feel like didn't had enough of Andrew Garfield as the Spiderman 2.0...:( Andrew is a great actor and good-looking and cute and he makes a wonderful couple with Emma Stone! Well, in short, the movie Spider-Man: Homecoming tells a story about the young Peter Parker (15 years old!) who would give his all to be a part of the Avengers. The time setting is a few months after the 'civil war' between Iron-Man and Captain America in the movie Captain America: Civil War. Peter was recruited into Iron-Man's team, and since then, Peter always tries his best to draw Tony's attention and secretly wishes to join the Avengers.

I love the fact that Tony Stark is in the movie! I've always liked his arrogant character (gaya orang kaya sombong xD). And, oh yeah, I was #TeamIronMan back then when the Civil War movie was booming. I thought I have to wait for Captain America's next movie for more of Stark, but thanks Marvel for letting me to watch him in Spider-Man's movie. Although he's arrogant and seems ignorant, he is 'always there' for Peter. When Peter's in trouble, he will (or his robots will) be there to help. He's such a responsible parent lol xD

And about Aunt May...? Well... We've always enjoyed Spider-Man movies with our loving old lady Aunt May, but no, no old ladies this time. In this movie, it's a hot attractive woman as Aunt May. Yes, it's Marisa Tomei in the house! Despite the very different appearance, he's still a loving auntie to Peter. And I was totally surprised when I find out that Marisa Tomei is actually 52 years old. I mean, wow, WOW. I'm totally impressed with how she keeps up her youth xD she's so pretty (and so attractive) for a 50 y.o woman!

This time, Spider-Man's enemy is a man in a robotic bird costume. It's Vulture. This man is actually just a man who loves his family and wants his family to be happy... but he picked the wrong way to actualize it. I can't tell much about this movie because I'm so sure if I talk more I'm about to spoil the whole movie lol. So, if you want to find out Vulture's true identity, or who's Peter's girlfriend now, or whatever you want to know, go watch it to the cinemas!

Sleep Goals

Getting into a new year, most of us get busier and restless. We have to seek a way out of it and make sure ourselves to get enough rest, at least to have a good night sleep every night. And of course, we have to find ways to stay happy and avoid stress. So, here's a few tips for you!

Do Something Positive
Do things that sets your day up for greatness! Read good books, do some stretch, drink coffee, write a journal, etc. You can also do this with your friends to boost up the mood! Positive things done with favorite people can be a very good remedy for our tired body and mind. 

Be Productive
Boost your productivity through doing great things. Do some workout, take small jobs, etc. Most of all, I think the best one to do is let your passion do it. Develop your hobbies! Turn it to something awesome that you've never imagine before.

Drink Water & Eat Breakfast
Food has always been the sweetest escape. Give your energy level a boost by rehydrating and refueling. Sometimes, healthy foods and drinks are everything you need to make each of your days. It's okay to set your 'cheat day' but make sure you set limits!

Nighttime Prep
Don't let your mind be full of so many things in the morning. So, prep things for tomorrow before you go to bed. Set your outfit of the day, pack your lunch, and organize what you need for the day (make sure you have everything you need in the bag!). No more chaos in the morning!

Set a Bedtime
I know, sometimes we're just not in the mood of sleeping although we have to. But we have to know ourselves and make commitment to sleep at the time that will allow us to get enough sleep before the alarm rings! Start setting an alarm just for a precaution instead of wake you up. That would be amazing!

Make a Gradual Change
To change your bedtime and alarm habits, you can start setting your alarm back 10-15 minutes more each day until you reach your goal. I know it might be so hard to do at first, but we'll never know what kind of change we can make, right?

Adjust Your Alarm
I hate the beeps that repeats all the time to wake me up. Yeah, we all do. So, how about pick your favorite upbeat song to be your alarm sound? It might spark your morning spirit to get up and start a dance. And if it doesn't work because you keep hitting snooze button? Just set the most annoying noise as you alarm sound, highest volume, and put it across the room. 

Upgrade Your Bed
With good sleep environment, comes a good sleep quality. You know, you won't regret investing your money in a new mattress, upgrade your pillow, and buy new sheets and blankets, because it will be totally worth it. Plus, you can always find your best sleeping company at Leesa ;)
