This post has been in my draft since November 2014 – I know, it’s that LATE to post something back from 2014. But just today, I looked up some of the pics, and I love how this event reminds me this feeling: 1. lost and confused. 2. warm and acknowledged.

Semenjak menginjakan kaki di New Bedford, saya punya banyaaaaaaakk sekali ide yang ingin saya realiasikan. Seringnya sih ide tersebut menguap, dan hanya bertahan dalam hitungan hari saja – dan orang yang sering saya kemukakan ide-idenya siapa lagi kalau bukan Ara.

Considering the location is… Read More Brattle Book Shop
Oh, Hi 2014….! Every beginning of the new year always give me a weird-mixed feelings – at some point I feel so blessed for the all the good things that my family and best friends had and got throughout the year, but at some other stage – I feel so….
