Beauty Little Things


how beautiful it is when our heart can feel pain and still have an eye to see beauty at the same time.

 You'll end up disappointed if you think people will do for you
as much as you do for them. Not everyone has the same heart as you.

 It will hurt. And then one day it won't.
And until then, allow those pain to let you grow.

Though, some memories never leave your bones,
like salt in the sea; they become part of you
and you carry them.

 But then, you'll find your very own moment
when none of that matters; when you can sit back and realize
that this is who you are, and no one should want to change you, including yourself.

Because honey, how you love yourself
is how you teach others to love you.

I hope that you never, not even for one second,
become a secondary character in your own story.

These photos reminds the moment when I depressed about work and life. It was less than a month before the departure when a friend ask me to join him to Bali, I wasn't sure what I was thinking but I impulsively said that I'll go.

I felt so much pain and empty at the same time. All I did was followed them wherever they were going; randomly captured common things; read some books; listened to the rain, waves and wind; tried to have a deep sleep. No itinerary. No places I want to go. Unusual, weird kind of myself.

Apparently, things gets better and I felt so much lighter the days after. And a friend said, "Maybe, that was because you being unconsciously mindful by pausing your life at the moment. You literally need that sometimes"

She's probably right. Of all the people I've hurt, I've hurt myself the most; I owe my self an apology.

South Korea chapter III : Busan to Seoul


As the last destination before going back home, Seoul made us feel too happy we didn't want to go home. Due to the tight schedule and work and whatever it is, we didn't have much time to stay here, but I can say that my second time here in Seoul was one of my best time I've ever had.

Nothing beats a vacation with supportive and super flexible friends, because with them we can always try random things, change direction whenever we need to, as well as laugh to ourself while we lost and just enjoy every minute of it. In other hand, what I missed about Seoul is the minimal and instagramable buildings, expensive but super delish barbecue, the cheap cosmetics and cute socks, fashionable oppa(s) that we met along the way, and every beautiful spot in the city that we love to capture every single time we found it.

Posting this one because I miss my gurl so bad, let's have a vacaaay!

South Korea chapter II : Daegu to Busan


In case some people wonder, how I write a post even when it's been months since the trip ended. Well, re-watching video footages that I took during the trip, pretty much made feels like yesterday.

Back in October, after the business trip in Daegu I extended my schedule in South Korea to visit Busan and Seoul. It's autumn and for me that's the best season to travel, cold enough but not too cold.

My friend and I chose to take the bus from Daegu to Busan, since it's way cheaper than the KTX train. A bit longer but I think it's still good. Korean bus drivers are so good, they drove well, comfortable and we arrived on schedule.

Compared to Seoul, actually Busan is more quiet and peaceful. I could see the beach across main street, plenty of seafood, flea market, street food, street musician, street magician (I know, lol). Busan’s hotel and food price are also cheaper than in Seoul.

It was good days I spent in Busan, I could walk and see around peacefully with no rush. If you go to Busan, I recommend you to visit Gukje Market, the biggest market area in town. You can find anything, like literally anything (from foods to clothes, flowers to souvenirs and so on)
