Berkeley











It was nice to get out of the busy city of San Francisco after the midterm week and go to Berkeley. It was my first time there and I love the area — so peaceful! It was also a lot warmer than San Francisco! You have no idea how much I miss warm weather, haha. 
We just walked around the city, climbed some trees, took some pictures, got a cup of really nice bobba and a very delicious taco! How's your week?

eighteen









 







I'm 18! It's my very first birthday without my family. I learned so many things since I got here, I learned how to survive with my family thousands miles away. It felt like a two-day-birthday because people back home started wishing me happy birthday since yesterday (Bali is 15 hours ahead) haha..
I spent half of my birthday at my drawing class (from 12PM-5.30PM) without telling any of my classmates it's my birthday — and later on my classmate found out and called me and scold me (sort of) for not telling her it's my birthday. It's a memorable day...
After class my roommates and I went to The Cheesecake Factory to have my birthday dinner. I must say, the view from the top of Macy's at Union Square is lovely. The weather is not warm, but we survived. And the cake surprise is just like a cherry on top. They're the closest I have to my family back home, so grateful to have them as my roommates! I love you girls!!!
Ah, what a lovely day, I want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes :)

P.S. Those random pictures were taken when we were waiting for out table ;)
