Weekly Photo Challenge: Satisfaction

I am a relatively simple person with a common interest on book and traveling. Buying books has been a guilty pleasure for me because I feel some kind of satisfaction everytime I do it, and the pleasure even doubled once I finish reading the books. It does not always happen linearly since I have less time to read lately due to my work and other things, but for sure it will be part of my life which will always bring small happiness in my heart ☺️

Traveling is just amazing. I enjoyed the experience and new knowledge which I got when I visited new places and met new people. After hiatus for a while, I think it’s about time for me to pack my bag and go wandering again, this time with my significant other 😄

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

For the Weekly Photo Challenge of Unusual, I chose some pictures taken during my stay in Switzerland. I went to Charmey, Gruyere, with my friends to watch Désalpe, a major celebration that marks the end of the Alpine summer pasture season. We enjoyed a parade of cows decorated in flowers going through the village  together with the breeders who looked very happy and excited with the celebration.

Parade of cows wearing flower crown and big bell passing a village was completely unusual for me. I commonly see cows only in the farm, and it was not wearing anything on its body, let alone a flower crown 😂


Ah. I miss Switzerland. Hopefully I can visit it again sometime in the future 😊

PS. I just have to post this picture because they were so cute and I miss these boys a lot. I suppose two little boys hang out with beers were also unusual for me (lol!). Don’t worry guys, their parents finished their beers before they posed 😂😛

Weekly Photo Challenge: Bridge

I guess it becomes some kind of habit to leave my blog for a month and catching up with photo challenge and few entries *cough*. I keep reminding myself to write regularly but when I am occupied with work, I would always have an excuse not to blog. Maybe I should think it differently to keep me motivated: if I have time to work, why don’t I have time to write? Makes sense, right? 😅😂

Anyway, catching up with last week’s theme of photo challenge: Bridge, I am sharing some pictures that I like from my past trips. Enjoy 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

Looking at this week’s theme of photo challenge makes me miss my camera. It has been a while since I last used it. I was learning photography in 2013 and also during my assignment in Switzerland. However after I came back to Indonesia, I was having difficulty to manage my time. Well, maybe also difficulty to manage my life somehow. I was fully occuppied with works with quite limited time to really do my hobby or something that I love to do. Not that I did not like my job back then, actually it was one of the most challenging and interesting job I have ever had. I could travel to different country, like India for instance, and I got to know new people and build my network.

Anyway, back to the topic, this time I post two pictures which I think could represent theme of Focus. The first picture taken during my flight from Jakarta to Surabaya, of course taken in flight mode 🙂

The other picture was taken during my trip to Japan when we were lucky to at least get a glimpse of sakura. Hope you will like them! 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent

ev·a·nes·cent [evəˈnes(ə)nt]

adjective

Soon passing out of sight, memory, or existence; quickly fading or disappearing.

My team in the office has been experiencing major transformation which forced us to split and work in different location starting last month. I am lucky to move back to my hometown, however my colleagues and friends need to move out to another country or city, which of course a big change in their and their family live. 

Though we can still be in contact with one another, as many option of communication media is available, I know it will not be the same again. Our day to day interaction will be reduced a lot since we are not in the same office anymore. People tend to forget, as much as they want to keep remembering the good old feeling.

I might sound a bit too sentimental, but what can I say. I am anyway a people-person :”)

Good luck for all of us, and for sure I will miss you a lot guys. Hope to see any of you somewhere across the globe in the near future!
