The Confession of An Aspiring Writer

This week instagram hashtag project is Dream Big. “Your dreams encapsulate your highest goals.” It says on the caption section. But we never can tell with dreams. Through twenty nine years my journey in this life, only the past ten years have I really think about my dream. Up until now, I still keep asking…

My Photo Project

On an advance note: This is me mumbling 🙂 What comes to mind when we first moved here was that I wanted to do a photo project. I wanted to take pictures on the street. Daily life of people who live here in Timika, Papua. As days went by, the idea kept getting strong. But…

Stay Raja Ampat

You have to taste a culture to understand it. _Deborah Cater. The last rays of the afternoon sun peering through the smoke between green leaves became a reminder of beauty can come from anything. The smoke was from burning dried leaves nearby. I stood before my camera, my right hand on the tripod when someone…

Tomorrow 

After spending a week a way for holiday, I tried to get back on track with my writing, photographing and other house chores. I do not want any time wasted doing not important thing. I had a lot in my mind. I want to do this and that. Have to finished this by then. Making…

Blue Magic

My first underwater pictures. Though I found it a little bit hard to take picture while I tried to keep my balance in the water and tried to focus and made sure I did not scare the fish away. Albeit the difficulty, It is not easy to pick what pictures to post as I love…

Raja Ampat Again

We were late. The plane was about to board in twenty minutes, and we were still on the road moving very slow as the traffic before us were busy. By the time our car rolled its wheels in the airport parking lot, I rushed the kids to get their belongings and made sure nothing left…

High Key Birds on Wire

I like going through my old pictures and then see some old photos with new perspective. Then I will try to figure out when and where those pictures were taken and what was the condition etcetera. These pictures on this post here were taken in 2014 when we were staying in Meulaboh, Aceh Barat. Where…

Trip On the Bus

As far as I remember, my travel experience began when I was around four years old. Not that I did not travel before that, I just can not remember if it ever happened. I can not remember the day or the time, but there is a part in my brain that made a flashback of…

Around Timika in Car

How To Manage Your Time

I want to write, I want to study. I want to cook, I want to try new recipe. I want to read, I want to hang out with friends. I want to do so many things at the same time but I do not have time. I am so overwhelmed with all the things I…

A Day of a Writer 

So I have decided today I am going to spend my morning time writing. I get my coffee ready, open my laptop and stare at the blank white screen. I sip my coffee. I still stare. The screen still blank. And it is staring at me too. Just a typical day for writer. Especially when…
