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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

My Paris Kitchen : a book review

It is not until yesterday did I read My Paris Kitchen book after it has been on my bookshelf for almost a week. I do not own the book though, I just happen to fall in love with culinary world lately (in term on finding inspirations for my food photography and yummy yet easy recipes)…

Hello March!

Hi again! We are in yet another month in this 2017. And I have been slacking too many posts I could not even remember when the last one was. The past short month (only twenty eight days) has been colorful and exciting enough. Though most of my time were spent at home and meeting friends…

How They Do It

Every time when i am sitting on my writing seat elbows on the writing table, fingers holding tightly to the pen and eyes staring at the blank paper (Most of the time I use wrinkle papers from my five years old son after he is not satisfied with the paper plane he made and toss…

Intermezzo 

Coming from a certain place, country, suburb, a village or whatever we call it makes us think that when we meet someone or some people and we tell them where we are from, we expect them to know that place. At least that what i used to think.  About ten years ago, I went to…

Blog On

Ten years ago, I started my first blog. I can not recall the reason I did so. I just remember I love writing so much and I wanted to write something I could share with people. I was studying in Auckland, New Zealand at that moment. Far away from family and friends. The easiest source…
