Happy New Year 2018

"Take a leap of faith and begin this wondrous new year by believing. Believe in yourself. And believe that there is a loving Source - a Sower of Dreams - just waiting to be asked to help you make your dreams come true."  
Sarah Ban Breathnach

Happy 2018!




Gold embelish

Between work, social life, the holidays that coming up; I barely can find time for myself. No time for outfit photos, nothing... ugh...
It was raining outside so this one was shot inside.
I have never been interested in wearing bodycon as I dont like the shape sculpting my body, so most of my clothes are loose. Here is an example of it and how I added gold embelishment. Its totally see through 😁😁😢😢

Plus I want to add Pablo Neruda in this post if you dont mind...

"My soul's lamp smiles, bedews your feet,
Sweeter on your lips is my bittered wine:
Oh harvester of my evensong,
How my solitary dreams believe you are mine!"

thank you all for stopping by and viewing the post...


Ripped white denim pants...

Just the other day, a friend of mine was telling me that sometimes she felt she had enough of working and that is super bored of working. She asked me "to what point of your life will you still be working?"
She had enough of working hard and just want to take her pension soonest... oh well....

I told her that I knew nothing but to work, and that I will still be working as long as I can...

I am a person that is always stay focus on my path, this is my tools to get my dreams come true. I told her that I have to work hard because I am living my dreams, and that is travelling a whole lot. And to achieve that, I have to work to cash in and pay for these travels. The work itself is a routine that I love! I need the discipline, it differentiate and borders and make the travel worth it!!

I am not the type that goes "let's make hobby into working, vice versa". Bull F-in ships! THIS IS the dream and this is the way it goes.


Kampung Warna Warni Tridi Jodipan

A number of students of Communication Studies from Muhammadiyah Malang University came up with their study projects that initially wanted to change the behavior of residents on the river banks that litters their garbage into the river. Jodipan village were chosen because it looked to have a nice landscape viewed from atop the bridge of Jalan Gatot Subroto.

With the project coordinator and working together with paint supplier; they have gathered the mural community and artists to paint the walls of citizens' homes. Deployed as many as 30 painters to change the face of Jodipan slum village.

At the beginning they did not think that Jodipan village will become a tourist destination. Originally, the painting of the village was done so that the houses would not look 'dull' and so the people would pay attention to their sanitation problem.

The proposal was submitted, the approval from community leaders in the village was signed and so the painting job was done by the community with the help of the army and also paints were donated by the paint manufacturers in Malang.

Although the physical condition of the houses in this village has been repaired and the walls painted in color, but the main problem in this settlement--that sanitation cannot be resolved at first.
Not all houses have toilets and residents often throw garbage in the river. But apparently, with the arrival of the tourists; it actually changed the behavior of citizens.

A public toilet is used by residents in turn. A number of garbage bins has been provided both for the households of the residents and visitors. The garbage will then be transported by janitor every day.
The cost of transporting the garbage comes from the admission fee of IDR 2.000 per visitor.

In addition to make the people aware of sanitation concerns, tourist visits to these villages have made an impact on the economy of citizens. They also sell drinks and snacks, and manage vehicle parking.

How's that for Positano of East Java?
