wpid-wp-1416654845746I’m back to the blogging world. Sorry for my absence for almost a week. I need bed rest :D.

But during my bed rest, a new blogging friend of mine, C. E. Robinson with her blog Before Sundown nominated me for a Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! Thank you so much for giving me a new experience in blogging arena. This is my first award nomination. Really, I am beyond excited!!!

According to her blog, I found that, “this award recognizes the unique voices of women bloggers around the world”. Wow, I’m really honored to be nominated in this category. This made me thinking that this blog is somehow unique. Thank you very much for realizing how unique my blog is. Before sundown is also a unique blog. I immediately fall in love with the sunrise and sunset pictures. Somehow her blog encourages me to care even more of my daily life through her writing. Please visit her blog (as the link above) and you will not be disapointed :).


  1. Link to the person who nominated you.
  2. Add the reward logo.
  3. Answer the questions your nominator has asked.
  4. Nominate 7 other bloggers and let them know via comments.
  5. Ask your nominees 10 questions.

The answers of the questions the she gave me:

1.   Who are you? Where do you live?

My fullname is Sandrine Jezabel Biagiotti. I am from Indonesia, the country that is small in size but big in shape–we have a lot of great cultures and landscapes that you will fall in love with. I’m currently living and working in Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, the most crowded city in Indonesia during office hours, the city that gives headache all the time but lovable at once. πŸ˜€

2.   Do you live in the same country you were born in?

Yes, I do. But not at the same city. I was born in Bandung, the neighbor city of Jakarta. I might say that Bandung also the crowded city especially at the weekend, but being there is lovely. You should visit there sometime.

3.   What is the story behind your blog name?

During my blog year from one platform to another platform I already change my blog name for a few times. Maybe I already change the name for almost tenth times. This last one–hopefully–called SanWa Journeys. The name of this blog is changed after I got married, because the name SanWa is the abbreviation of my and my husband’s name, SANdrine and YusWA. At first I want to make this blog only about me and my husband story of life but then I decide that this blog is dedicated to our journeys in my point of view. And from now on I keep SanWa as my virtual world identity :D.

4.   If you could live in any time period, what would it be?

Hmmm, I might choose, my current life. Why? Because timing is always running. Either I live in the past, in the future, in present, time is just the same and the Creator always gives such an enough time to live. Beside that, although too much downs I experienced, I found them a trigger to make me a mature woman.

5.   If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

FLYING, like superman or other superheroes. It will be nice to fly by my own. It’s just because I’m a lazy person, hahaha. By flying I don’t have to stuck in a traffic jam (you know, my city is a bit of headache related to traffic). By flying I don’t have to waste my time. But I know why I don’t have that power, I will become a lazier person IF I can fly :D.

6.   What is your passion?

To travel and eat more, to write, share, and earn from it. Yes, this is my passion. “Around The World in Eighty Days” book is my trigger <3.

7.   Name one positive thing that you do to Ò€œlift your spirits.Ò€

Reading. Yup, reading bible, books, articles, or blogs that give motivation lifts my spirit (aside of praying).

8.   What is the biggest challenge you have overcome this past year?

The biggest challenge I have overcome this past year is CONTINUE BLOGGING. Blogging is somehow a challenge for me. Especially from few hiatus years. I had a big longing of blogging but hard to do that because of my laziness. And yes now I can push my brain, heart, and hand to continue what I love.

9.   If you could write your own life story, what would the title be?

I’m not the person who can make a nice title but if you insist, maybe the title will be the same as my blog title, “SanWa Journeys”, because my life is my journey with my new little family :).


10.   If someone were to make a movie of your life, what actress would you want to play you?

Wohohoho,,, this is hard. I always picture that those actress life is much better than me (just be positive though). But I would choose Emma Stone. I don’t know her personal real life–I rarely follow entertainment news–but I think she is a simple person like me, maybe. I didn’t say that I have a pretty face like her, she is beyond pretty than me :D.
