Magnificent Mangrove

When you hear the word "PIK", what comes to your mind the first time?
"Pik pik olimpiiiik!" or PIKachu! Or the famous culinary cafes & restaurants as Hong Tang and Sumoboo?
I've seen some bloggers posted about Taman Wisata Alam Angke (Mangrove Forest) and their photos were beautiful. I nearly can't believe it's located at Jakarta! Exactly at PIK - Pantai Indah Kapuk. I really want to go there, and I asked my backpacker friends to go together. Pretending we are tourists at Jakarta! :D
Entrance ticket is Rp 25.000 per person (Indonesian citizen), and Rp 10.000 for parking fee. No cameras are allowed, but we can take pictures using our phone camera (weird rule, eh?). For ones who bring camera (maybe for commercial photoshoot or prewedding), they have to pay Rp 1.000.000 additional fee.

Tokyo Banana is Not Halal :(

...which is a very bad news!!!
Because a few days ago hubby got a box of Tokyo Banana from his friend. Original from Japan, this banana flavored cake is very popular!

I took a picture of this well-wrapped box (I love how Japanese always pay attention on details!).

And opened one. And tasted it with hubby. And yum it's delicious. And posted it to my Path. And a friend asked, "Is it halal?"

Home Sweet Home

Paint another simple design in wooden cutting board :D

Writing a calligraphy using acrylic paint & brush in wood is not as easy as I think. Took about 2 hours to finish all of this simple painting (including snacking :p). Wow time surely flies when I do things I love!

Soap Making With Kippabuw

Sunday, September 28, I joined soap making class by mbak Vero from Kippabuw :D The class held in Paviliun 28, an eclectic cafe in Kebayoran Jakarta.
I love the place! But hubby didn't like it :)) He prefers waiting for me in a clean-decorated place (well it's all about taste of art, yo)

Woody Flowery

It's been a long long time since I think 'I am a creative girl'. In my childhood I used to draw my own comic, make my own 'activity book' (like the ones sold for kids: a magazine containing maze, crossword puzzles, fill the dots to make a picture, etc), sew my teddy's clothes, and making cute cards for mom & friends.
Well, I'm not gonna blame my academic activity but school really turned me into a left-brained person :p

I wanted to study graphic design but at my highschool everybody seemed wanting to be a doctor or an engineer. Well then I got accepted at management Unair & industrial engineering ITS, and chose ITS. This part of my life, I thought I was a smart girl, but gradually lose my sense of art :)))
I am grateful though, I met my hubby in college! It's a bonus hehehehe...

This blog is the place where I can pour my creativity.
Now I'm practicing painting again. This is my first trial painting on wooden cutting board.
Hydrangea, acrylic on wood. Found a tutorial on the net how to draw hydrangea. Still far from perfection, but I never thought I can do this until I stroke my brush :)


The conclusion is, follow your passion although it's a bit different than the society. Dian Pelangi went to SMK and then fashion college, and now she's soooo successful. We can't change the past, but nothing is too late. Susan Boyle found out she was so good in singing in Britain's Got Talent, when she was 50.

And when things aren't going as you dreamed, remember that Allah always has a plan, better for you. For me, it's finding my soulmate and best friends in the college ;) *ambil hikmahnya saja*
