[Photo Gallery] Hyde Park, Sydney

Travel

I’m crazy about outdoor life. I guess I’ve never been an indoor-kind of person. I prefer natural breeze over chilled aircon air, warm sun-lit grassy yard over cold plush beddings, and kids whopping around cheerfully over those sitting nicely in front of TV.

Jakarta does not have lot of this kind of public spaces. That is why I always feel reluctant to leave home in the morning, just when my front and backyard feels best during the day.

When in Sydney last year, I always passed Hyde Park whenever I want to go. This medium-sized park seems to be strategically located so citizens and passers by are left with sense of longing to spend their time in this park.

Jakartans, you can envy this…

Redefining Heritage, Rethinking Legacy

Do You – Really – Live Your Life as A Local?

When we embrace this kind of ‘local’, it doesn’t matter what accent people speak, as long as they communicate seamlessly. It doesn’t matter who eats what for lunch, as long as they can share their dining table. It doesn’t matter who enters or leaves, as long as the community maintains, shapes and keeps redefining their locals.

Fishes Know No Politics or Religions

Somehow, I didn’t care about the menu mistakes, the #meh coffee and all the tiring talks about religions and politics in this trip, but that LOL with a stranger perfectly ended my trip to Kei Islands.
