10 Signs You And Him Are Meant To Be
19 Feb 2018IDEASBY SweetEscape

We absolutely loved this insight from Bridestory and thought that you would love it too.

It can sometimes be difficult to differentiate true love with momentary passion and lust. We often get confused between the two and mistake one for the other. So, to help you be able to know whether the person you are with is the right one for you or not – we have narrowed it down into 10 very important signs that shows when you both are meant to be together.

1. There is chemistry

We can fake a lot of things, but chemistry is not one of them. In any romantic relationship – this ingredient is a must and one that is either there or isn't. You're definitely in the right track when you feel such a strong chemistry.

2. There is friendship

When all the passion, lust and honeymoon period is over, friendship is what will keep the relationship going. Imagine yourself not being in a romantic relationship with your partner, would you still want them in your life? If the answer is yes, then you have found yourself a built-in best friend.

3. You share the same morals and values

Not everyone will share the same morals and values as you do, but when you've found a partner who does, it will be far less difficult to overcome other differences you may have.

4. You give the best of yourselves

Being our best selves at the beginning of the relationship can be super easy, but if after years have passed and you both are still willing to be the best for each other, then you have found someone truly worthy of your love.

5. You both become better people because of each other

When you see yourself becoming a better person with the love that your partner gives you, which is a big sign that he is the right one for you. It is one of the biggest gifts that true love can bring us.

6. His happiness is your happiness

When you truly love someone, all that you want is to see your partner being happy. When this becomes a two-way street, you both have found a real and genuine love that does not come around very often.

7. You enjoy each other's company regardless

When simply being in the presence of your partner brings you joy and happiness, which says a lot about how much you really love being together. And you are going to need this if forever is what you both are striving for.

8. You are completely yourself with that person and vice versa

There is nothing more fulfilling than being able to be yourself, flaws and all – no filter needed, in the presence of the one you love. When you feel absolutely free to express your thoughts and feelings to your partner just as they are and they love you even more for it, then you have found yourself a keeper!

9. Even though it's work, its work you're happy to do

Let's face it, relationships are not easy and require a lot of effort. But, when you both are willing to put in the work in the good and especially in the bad, that is something that definitely screams love.

10. Even though they are not perfect, they are still perfect for you

When both of your flaws become perfect imperfections to one another, which are love in its truest form.

Sidney and Etha Mohede: Christmas Tradition in Our Family
12 Dec 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

Among the Indonesian Christian community, Sidney and Etha Mohede are extremely popular. Sidney is best known as an award-winning gospel singer-songwriter and one of the pastors of a Jakarta-based megachurch, while Etha is a social media influencer. This Christmas season, we had the opportunity to talk with The Mohedes about their Christmas tradition, how they're going to spend this year's Christmas, and the importance of photography for their family.

1. Tell us about Christmas in your family!

We think our family's Christmas is just like any other family's. When we're in Jakarta, on Christmas morning we'd wake up and open our Christmas presents. But, since these couple of years we spent our Christmases traveling overseas, we'd open the presents before we fly off.

Also, we like to think that the trip itself is the present for the entire family, and we are happy to enjoy the trip together, just us and our three children.

2. Any particular Christmas dinner tradition?

Our family's Christmas dinner usually happens on the Christmas Eve, with simple dishes and no special table decorations. We always like to finish up all the hassle before Christmas Day itself. On Christmas Day we'd usually just eat simple take outs and just enjoy our time together.

However, we think that our family's dinners–be it Christmas or not–is a tradition in itself. We want to make sure that every family member sit around the table at dinner time. We see nowadays in modern families, at dinner time everybody's still busy with their own things; the kids watching videos on their tables, the parents still busy with their gadgets... We don't want that in our family. We make sure that everyone sits around the table and really enjoy our time together, including on Christmas dinners.

3. Where will you be spending Christmas this year?

This year we'll be going to Europe, namely Italy and the Netherlands. This would be our first time in Italy, and it's a 3-families trip. We're flying off to Dusseldorf, then we'll travel to Milan and meet the other 2 families there. Then we'd spend 7 days in Italy and 7 days in Netherlands, so in total it would be a 14 days trip.

As for the detailed itinerary, we honestly have no clue, but we've already booked a car to drive around. We want to try a road trip-style holiday this time around, and we think it would be fun! It's going to be an adventure!

4. We know you travel a lot, especially Sidney. Do you take photos of your trip?

Of course! For me (Sidney) personally, I love photography because it is a way I can express my passion easily. I was an art major in university, and my first passion was drawing and painting. But drawing something takes a lot of time. With a camera, I can capture the beauty of what I was seeing wherever I go with a single snap. I can still use my brain and eye for the compositions and colours, and I can express my visual arts passion in an easy way, without having to spend more than 30 minutes to draw one picture.

Which is why, we also love SweetEscape very much, because the idea of not being the one who takes the photographs and actually being photographed once in a while is really fun! Honestly, I'm (Sidney) not a big fan of being photographed, like most guys, I believe. But for a family photo, it's always nice to have, since most of the times we'd have to take turns taking pictures with the kids, or resort to selfies. With SweetEscape, we don't have to worry about this, and all five of us can be in the picture together!
