5 Things Happening This Week
Jakarta -

2022 is almost here and this is going to be the last week of 2021 we have to enjoy and celebrate. With these remaining days, you might don't want to start a new chapter by missing some festive days that will happen this week, especially for FOMOs out there. For that reason, here we have curated some of the dates for you to mark on your calendar this week!

AFF 2020 Final
Cheers to our national football team who managed to tackle its way through, making it to the final of the ASEAN Football Federation against Thailand. The final match will take place at the Singapore National Stadium with a two-legged system starting Wednesday, December 29th 2021, and Saturday, January 1st 2022 for the second leg. Which means that they will be competing twice to take home the AFF Championship 2020 cup. History has it that Indonesia so far has only managed to taste the Runner Up title, namely in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2010, and 2016. For you football lovers, this date would definitely be a very exciting yet uneasy day for you!

BTS V Birthday
ARMYs, you must have marked December 30th on your calendar already. Our beloved Capricorn boy V, Kim Taehyung is turning 26 this year! There are several projects going on already in celebration of this handsome vocalist of BTS, which are including adopting a white Tiger from Zoo Negara, Malaysia in the name of Kim Taehyung, building a primary school, fundraising and donating, also billboard projects which exhibit Kim Taehyung's handsome face alongside with birthday wishes from ARMYs. It's undeniable that the power of ARMYs is indeed influential.

Who's excited to welcome 2022? Even though we haven't managed to fully recover from the pandemic that hit us back in 2019, we're gradually adjusting to the current situation and somehow we're used to the new normal. Looking back to all the canceled events and parties we planned or bought tickets for is indeed saddening but the only thing we could do is pray for a better situation that 2022 has to offer. May all the canceled or upcoming events in 2022 be rejoiced together!
