"If you can't be in awe of mother nature, there's something wrong with you"

True that! Being transported into a place like this can really gives you an awe, calm feelings, positive mind, and an exhilarating break. More likely with the fact that I embrace outdoor activities, so being surrounded with such a beautiful scenery and nice weather would definitely complete myself.

We slept altogether in a huge tent, enough instant foods, good company, a tiring yet super fun hike, up to the mountain, down to the hill, beautiful paddy fields, it was a memorable 3 days outing I really must say!

And I've been listening to Bombay Bicycle Club's new album recently, and this ought to be one of my favorite track from them. You surely need to check them out! More pictures to come.

To all mommies (and soon to become mommy) around the world.
Your beloved ones will grow as the time flies, they will promise you that someday you're gonna be one of those lucky parents to have them by your side, and when they feel tired about how monotonous (eat,poo,cry,sleep,repeat) their life was...they will push the stroller by themselves (being independent,yes?)

I can't believe I shot babies with their stroller THAT much.
p s : being spontaneous yet random about what to post on your blog is fun indeed, everyone should give a try :)

I always cherish every moment with my beloved Fuji Instax Wide camera which mostly produced a decent picture. Waiting like you would get something huge, then something worth the wait came out. Ever since I'm not really a big fan of landscape pictures, I decided to capture every beautiful scenery with this lovely instant camera. I love how the result turns out to be pretty good.

And as I promised on my previous post, I made a short video too! To be honest, there are more videos from my trip which I want to put along with this one. Too bad my video editing program got crashed most of the time. Other than that, I hope you enjoy the other soothing side from the world's most crowded place :)



More pictures soon, bye for now!

We traveled all the way around to the south of China. Our destination was Nanning - Guilin - Yangshou - Haikou - Sanya. Let's start with Guilin.

Guilin is one decent city which surrounded by so many hills. I would like to named Guilin as the land of a thousand hills. It's beautiful and kinda weird at the same time, seeing so many buildings and people blend along with those hills as the background. Guilin has 4 lakes and each of them are stick together with a bridge. Government predict that the population will increase to its higher level which is 1,5 million people by next year.

The local people were so nice it depends on how you react with them. Mostly I started to say hi to them in Chinese (ni hao). I found the words "ni hao" is very addicting and turns out to be my new favorite words =D

in Nanning you can't see those beautiful hills as much as you could see in Guilin. Nanning hosts an annual exhibition that held every October in China & also just raised its popularity due to a very quick development in the last 5 years.

And as I always mention how much I adore kids, surprisingly I met this local kid named Xang Ni & her father at the nearest KFC to our hotel. They're so friendly it's hard to resist the fact not to love them (look at how cute she was in her tutu dress). We had a little chit-chat for awhile & thank God her father can speak English. Most people I met in China speak Chinese and barely can speak English. Even once I asked for mineral water and all they reacted was "..." , it was a bit depressing I must admit it.
And since we don't speak the language, every unspoken words were delivered with body language or else that well-understood.

The last 3 pictures are a glimpse from our boat trip in Yangshou (Shangrila Yangshou), it was really beautiful. I was stood there mesmerized by the beauty of its scenery. I'm telling you it was such an experience. Hopefully I can share the video with you.
Bye for now

If I happened to go for a walk, on my way back home I always passed this place around 5-ish. There's always this catchy hanger and some vegetables crops that started to make me feel curious about what kind of people that living in there.
Finally I decided to bring my camera and found this tiny group of houses that looks similar with a village.

The people greeted me very well as if I was working for a newspaper lol .Then I told them I was just walking around and wanted to take some pictures. They felt so okay with that even few of them gave me their best pose in front of the camera.

"How do you see your life in 5 years?"
"Same like this, selling the same fruits, hopefully a better life"

a random conversation I had with one of them. I always admire people who at least can be as grateful as him :D

long story to tell, I just came back from a crazy 4 days off with my friends & ready for another trip on the next Tuesday. Happy holiday :D

If only there's this "10 places people should take care of before dooms", Museum ought to be on that list. Seriously, going to a decent mall on weekend with a bunch of friends is really great but it cost lot of money. Why don't we go to museums instead?

Last Wednesday was pretty much neat for me and 2 other friends. As it was a "National Museum Day" ,all the museums in Jakarta were opened for free to public. Managed myself to woke up earlier then took a public transportation for a museum trip!
Our first destination was Museum Fatahillah > Museum Bank Indonesia > Museum Bank Mandiri.
My favorite museum is definitely Museum Bank Indonesia, I love how everything turns out really well organized there. Not to mention how they put the whole historical stuffs on such a strong yet modern display which I like.
I really look forward for another museum trip, anyone?
