About last summer like gypsies or nomads wandering around the temples of Bagan, Myanmar. We explored the city of Yangon before heading to this magnificent place. Witnessing sunset and sunrise was a bliss. So much to appreciate~

I once read, "Be careful with your free time because idleness is the workshop of the devil." Being optimistic, what's good with free time is that we can be whatever we want to be -a poet, a writer, traveler or an artist~

The beauty of our differences is it allows us to see things through varying perspectives. Here's a view of Marina Bay from a not so tall height. Even more because i did squat a little when I captured this. :)

I guess traveling solo has become a yearly habit, a well-deserved break to refresh the mind. Always have time for yourself~

No filter, we are wonderfully blessed by our Creator. Though man has fallen for sin, gladly we can possibly set our hearts on the things above. In this world of uncertainty, one thing to be sure of and look forward to is eternal life with our Saviour. By grace through faith we are saved~ #John3:16 #AmazingGrace

"We get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds." -Sean, Good Will Hunting

Most of the time, I don't care that I care. I don't care that I'll invest my effort, time and energy to something, to random people simply because I care about it, about them. Even if I'll benefit nothing out of it, even if doing so burns me out.
But we all get to that point that we grow tired and really drained. And eventually we need to recharge and have our 'me time' more.
And so in 2018, I guess I would care not to care a little bit more. Free as the morning birds, I'll set myself free -free to think, free to choose, free with time.
Like I'd let myself learn surfing in the sand with my long sarong on bec I find it more comfortable than the typical swimwear. And I'll just stare at the beach after surfing class and refuse a dip in the water bec I find it more relaxing. I care that I don't care how surfing looked so fun for others bec it leaves me alone with my quiet time in the villa. I care that I don't care how they loved swimming early bec I'll have my own peaceful naps by the beach a little bit longer. I care that I don't care to conform bec it allows me to focus, be calm~

One of the places I stayed in Bali -a studio room in the attic painted in my favorite color. Rest is a necessity. One thing I look forward during travels is rest after a long day. Time alone is a luxury I guess. It's a treat I grant myself -freedom in my peace and quiet time~

"You are your greatest asset"
When my laptop got busted on my birthday while I was in Bali, I realized the phrase from John Maxwell's book -You are your greatest asset or detriment.
Never tried fixing any laptop before but I don't want to compromise work so I tried. I also realized that a set of handy screwdrivers can be a travel essential! Thanks to the crew who managed to find one, I was able to open my laptop -for better or worst 😂

As it goes with Murphy's Law -everything can go wrong, and it will go wrong on the worst possible time~

It was the heaven's gift that my unit did boot before midnight.🙃

"What makes life beautiful?"
I really find malls with views interesting. Well aside from shopping, other people really go to malls just to eat (yes me 😂). And isn't it nice dining with a view? Oceanus Mall in Jesselton Kota Kinabalu, Marina Bay or more preferably Harbour Point in Singapore and this one, Discovery Mall in Bali, Indonesia. Because the salty air, the calm breeze and view of nature reminding us that more than material things, these are what makes life beautiful along with peace and hope~

Freedom. Surfers in Bali excited for the waves. As for me, didn't really learn surfing until a month after visited Siargao where we had 1-1 coach. Also haven't tried much of it but surely it looks fun and relaxing. When you're riding the waves, balancing yet as free as the morning bird -plus the sunrise/sunset. Beach life indeed! 🌴🌊

Mornings in Bali. Breakfast because you got to start the day with good energy. The music, sea breeze salty air, positive vibes and ending the day witnessing beautiful sunsets by the beach. A trip worth granting self~

"Live moments"
can you feel it? liberty
walking along the shore freely
feeling the sand in your feet
the cold sea water
the salty breeze
life and its good memories
it's what truly counts in old age
we look back smiling, reliving~

"Seeing the good in problems" Indonesian newspaper and a busted laptop on my birthday -blessing in disguise. I originally planned to kickstart the day with work, but good heavens wanted me to relax. Tried to fix my laptop then headed to the beach, ended the day with pasta while Iris was a song request granted in the bar. It was like some vibes of Julia Roberts in the movie Eat Pray Love~

There is something in taking photos, capturing moments that makes each memory more vivid. You remember what you felt in every picture~
"There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment."

"Dewa mata"
It's the heart of people that we remember the most.
Trying to play Naruto with Kasumi, the closest sister from host family back in Kobe. She says she likes to converse with me because she's able to practice her English language while I get to learn Nihongo from her. Unforgettable Tada family, even for a short stay they gave me a home away from home. I can still picture out their faces as they bid goodbye crying. Such a beautiful fam~

"Mada desu"
Through relativity
we will and may have met
in an intersection of moments
but until then
we are just passersby
