A personal update

CK has sailed away for work and will be in the sea for 2 months or so (I hope it's faster than that).
So here I am, all by myself again, zoomed into an apartment somewhere down in a city. This situation feels like a deja-vu of where I was 1 year ago :), only now, somehow I feel a little bit 'more-secure', I guess knowing the trip is just for a shorter period (by our standard) & we will be soon reunited again to normality, really help.  When I was still in Jkt & he was somewhere out there, we did not know until when it would be like that. Thankfully it only lasted for 1.5 years.

Well, our past arrangement in Jkt had made me think of new activities to occupy my time, and that's how I ended up taking SLR lessons :).
Now, I am thinking to take one the asian language courses... have not decided yet, would it be chinese, or japanese? But then again, I'm not sure I can force myself for classes, as I've been feeling my energy has just been drained too much for work. Anyway, none of the classes in YMCA that I'm eyeing have an opening this or last week.

So here I am, on a Sunday, bumming around . Thankfully yesterday was a fun-filled day with a friend, shopping and exchangies stories over brunch & late lunch. But I do hope next weekends, I will have more fruitful days.

ps: Image taken by me on a memorable trip to Ujung Genteng 2008 September.

Pretty Glove Not

I don't know what you call the pretty craft below, but I've always loved french lace, especially those that get transformed into a modern kebaya. Classic at its best, yet contemporary.
Little beautiful things spark up my life.

Don't you think they will look really beautiful with a short-sleeved kebaya or during a ring-exchange ceremony!

Back from Hong Kong

What a bliss to be able to take a break & go on holidays. Thanks to a friend who got sent over for training & very detailed research of another friend, we had a 5 nights-6 days complete sightseeing, wallet-emptying (Shopping!), and belly-satisfying trip in sometimes-sunny-sometimes-freezing-cold of Hong Kong. Would like to post a longer article on this, but for now, this picture will do. I love buzzling cities, full of people and energy!
