My April Notes for 2018

It’s been a while since I wrote last April notes. What happened in the past year has been surreal, and I’m happy to be alive. Thank you for all the support!


Yup, it’s been more than a year since my last post. I’m back to resume blogging and keep it up with a more sustainable process. Photo by Christian Hadidjaja.

Leaving the Cradle of Winter Blues

I certainly didn’t expect to catch a serious case of winter blues and abandoned my blog for four months. It’s a humbling period; a struggle to up my energy and motivation. I was psychologically and spiritually restless. Now that I’m once again ready to work with my more creative side, I’d like to “air my grievances” and share why I went dark for the past couple of months. This is a hard post to write, so excuse my awkwardness that no doubt seeps through my writing.

My April Notes 2015

My annual April notes, a representation of my own reflection. My personal (and professional) life has taken a more sunny turn!

Sewing Projects: Exercise of Discipline, Motivation, and Skills

March 2013 Japan Trip Teaser: A (Long) Summary

I love traveling even though I don’t get to do it often, especially going overseas to other countries. When you travel less with a mindset of a tourist and more with a mindset of an explorer, the experience simply opens you. It makes you invigorated and inspired, ready to see things both expected and surprising. Before March, 4 years has passed since my last overseas trip. After my March 2013 Japan trip, I pray that I will get to travel more often. You really miss out a great deal when you don’t travel and experience things. Trust me.

Amongst all countries in the world, I love Japan. Perhaps not as a country I choose to live in, but a country whose way of life, culture, and technology I admire so much. Before our March 2013 Japan trip, it had been 7 years since I first visited Japan. It was only 5 days, but since then I was patiently waiting for a chance to visit that amazing country, this time with the love of my life (you know who). As always, but maybe more so this time, he took gorgeous pictures that I am very excited to share with you.
