Confession: Tata Bonita is Yunita Rahmasari

Perfect Mates

Sorry for coming late again and for late comment replies of course… I don’t need to explain the reason, it will be very classic *you know the reason lah, it will make you sick hehehe :D*. There’s no bento or foodie posts for today, it’s my confession :D. Many of you know me by Tata Bonita, the author of Bonita’s Cooking & Bento Wonderland, but only a very little of you who know my real name. YES! Tata Bonita’s real name is YUNITA RAHMASARI, pretty name, isn’t it? :D. I DO love the name “Tata Bonita”, many people and friends *even my teachers* know me by that name. And I’m soooooooo overwhelmed when I check my blog’s visitors through Feedjit come to my blog from Google search by looking for “tata bonita”, “tata bonita bento”, or “bonita bento wonderland” hehehehe LOL! Grazie, grazie ;D. So, it’s a real hard decision not to use “Tata Bonita” as my watermark again, this name has a really special history for me :D. I decided to use my real name as my watermark since the blogging business goes more serious – I’m soooo tired of photo stealing :(. You know, it is really suck when you know your photoworks are stolen and your watermarks are cropped! Chop chop those thieves!

Here’s the history of “Tata Bonita” name: When I was a university student, my friends and I loved to do a kind of narcissism for our nick names. Those who were fast attributed their nick names with cute, manis/maniez (sweet), cantik (beautiful), and other pretty names they could find – for example Tiwi Cute, Farah Maniez, and so on :D. For those who didn’t get the rest of the pretty names, “jelek” (an Indonesian word for “ugly”) was the best choice, LOL! Since I didn’t want to attribute my name with “jelek”, I tried to look for a pretty name in Spanish, and I found “Bonita” :D. Wowww!!! I really love the name, it was so matched with my nick name, Tata, hehehe. So, “Tata Bonita” was the final result :D. Why Spanish? Well, at that time I was crazy in love with Dani Pedrosa (another Spanish MotoGP rider before I’m mad with Jorge Lorenzo hahahaha, LOL! :p). So, I really loved *now is still* to learn about Spanish words :D. Well, that’s a “girl” does – before becoming a MotoGP maniac, I was a big fan of soccer *now is still too* and I like Cristiano Ronaldo before I knew that he was the player of Manchester United. At that time, Cristiano was not as cool and popular as nowadays, but I knew he got something – he looked so cool in his own way in my eyes and I knew he’s so talented :D. And at that time, I loved to write my name: Tata C. Ronaldo, LOL! :D. But when I have already been "clicked" with "Tata Bonita", I even didn't want to change it into "Tata Pedrosa" or "Tata Lorenzo", hahahaha...

As I have told you, I really love the name “Tata Bonita”, so please call me “TATA” :D. I really love you when you call me by that name, hahaha :D. I’m still using “Tata Bonita” followed by my late grandpa’s name in my facebook. So, if you look only for “Tata Bonita” in facebook and you find it, well, that’s not me hehehehe :D. Here are some newest photos *with my new watermark ;D* of Bentar Beach I took on the previous Sunday when I was in Probolinggo to attend my friend’s wedding party. Hope you enjoy them! :D

Beautiful pictures, really enjoy it. Thanks for always sharing your awesome pictures with us :)
