It’s been a super busy, but fun, weekend!
After class on Saturday I spent a few hours at school trying to get ahead of myself for the busy weeks before Christmas, before dinner in the evening. We went to a place called Marche to celebrate my friends’ birthdays.
It was so lovely to have such a big group of friends together – there were a lot of people there that I hadn’t seen since I returned to Jakarta, so lots of opportunities to catch up 🙂
We had a few drinks after dinner (hello mojito!) and I dragged myself away from the party before it got to the nightclub!
I was concerned about getting some sleep as I needed to be up early to go to church and support my friend Glory who was singing in their Christmas service choir.
It’s an international church, and the service was like none I’ve ever experienced before! There were Christmas carols accompanied by electric guitars, and a metaphor about God’s light that involved us all shining lasers around the room!
Two fun facts about my morning: they had the best Christmas tree I’ve seen in Jakarta, and an African man asked me on a date to Burger King! Haha
And just like that it’s Monday again! I’ve got some new classes starting this week, and I’m co-hosting our school’s Christmas party on Tuesday. Throw in some holiday planning and you’ve got yourself a busy few days!
Have a great week 🙂
