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]


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!


Weekly Photo Challenge: Edge

Sometimes I wonder if my blog has changed its function from a media to express anything in my mind to only facilitate Weekly Photo Challenge (which is always also late, by the way) *cough*. Then again, it was me who always delayed writing down any idea came up in my mind, and regretted later because I would forget already what I wanted to write! 

Same old, same old! *crying*

Anyway, here are some pictures for this week’s theme: Edge. First picture was taken at Corfu, Greece, when I had my first ever “real” vacation: doing nothing in the beach and not thinking about work! 😁

Later picture was taken in Monterosso, Cinque Terre, Italy. The five villages are for sure my favorites from all the places I have visited durig my assignment in Swirzerland.  

Ah. Now I want a vacation 😩


(Belated) Weekly Photo Challenge: Rare

I missed so many Weekly Photo Challenge, I decided to catch up with all themes determined for August. This post refers to last week’s theme, “Rare”. 

I know I could be more creative, but I really wanted to post these pictures taken just this week when I had dinner and karaoke with my two besties from university, Kiki (haru) and Fitria (ami). 

Ever since we had worked in Jakarta (and Bandung for Fitria) around five years ago, we rarely had the opportunity to meet, even in the weekend. It got more difficult when we were in assignments in different countries: Kiki was in US, Fitria was in Netherlands, and I was in Switzerland. 

The great news is now we are all in the same city, Jakarta. Kiki just came back last May, so we agreed to meet and have some fun like we used to do in the past. I know it will not be “rare” thing again in the future (lol), but at this point of time, the dinner and karaoke was the first after three years, and it is not every day I have great fun with those who know me well. 

So, yeah, here they are 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Frame

Finally, back to blog, back to Weekly Photo Challenge which I have missed for couple of weeks! I miss taking pictures. I really do. Since I will be in business trip next week, I wonder if I can take an opportunity to go around and take some pictures. Let’s see 🙂

Anyway, here are two pictures for this week’s theme: Frame. The first one was taken in Chateu de Chillon, Montreux, Switzerland when I was there for training, while the later was taken during my trip to Thailand from the highest temple in Khon Kaen.
