A Paralyzed Universe

Humans seek for beauty, humans seek for happiness. 
Either for a glance or for eternity. 
There was never a parameter on how people define it, on how people reach it.
In fact fact, it can never be calculated.
Math has no power. Science has no power. 
A piece of bread could be so meaningful to some certain ones, while it has no meaning at all to the others. Meaningful because of its true value, or because of an implicit story from the process of earning it.

Ones might even find a form of happiness on its way of reaching happiness itself.
Either it was realized or probably not.

Ones may face severe struggles but defeated it just so they can reach their very own defined form of happiness.
The journey was never formed in a linear pattern. Sometimes, you meet holes. You'll never know what's under it, either something bad or that happiness you seek. You just gotta take the chance, and jump.

It's always good to feel some adrenaline,  to experience some adventure.
What ever's on the other side, there's always something good that can be caught.
Only if, you open your eyes, your mind, and your believes.

But sometimes things might be a little tricky. What may be seen as something beautiful, might just not be as it is on the inside.
Something seemed so harmless, so small, that turned out to be something so harmful, so dangerous.
It's a caution. A sign to always see things from many sides, many perspectives.

One thing is, that you can always turn a chaos into something beautiful.
It depends, on the human itself.
We create our own reality.
We are our very own directors and actors of our own lives. We have the ability to control it, and to act it out.
So what ever's bad that happened to us, it has always been our fault. What ever's good that happened to us, it has always been our greatness. Noted, something that was controlled by our very selves.

Then it is up to us what kind of story we are willing to create. A predictable happy ending, or with a little twist at the end. ;)

Btw, this photoshoot was Sabrina's idea. All the fantasies. It was actually inspired by the famous alice in wonderland,  but it was more of a remake version with all of the changes we made.
And, this was also dedicated to Sabrina's 10th birthday today!
She wanted to do a fun shoot, so I granted it ;)

Nari Mataya Lokatara

I couldn’t really remember when was the last time  i’ve watched an art dance performance. It’s clearly because i’ve spent most of my time doing tasks and projects and didn’t really reward myself with some entertainment. I didn’t think that travelling was a good idea since it’s pretty impossible to manage the time for it now. So i guess watching a dance performance would be a right pick, and it turned out that i was very right. I decided to watch one hat was held by FISIP UI Dance Community called Nari Mataya Lokatara which means a group of woman dancers who dances beautifully. On the other hand, i was also there to support my cousin Nindy who was one of the traditional dancers there.

                 The place was full packed, with parents, family, friends, and even public people. I knew that the show was about to start when the lights were dimmed off, and the place turned pitch black. Then came a group of traditional dancers performing a dance called Lenggang Maye, a welcoming Melayu dance performed by alumni FISIP UI, a great dance to start the show.

                I was pretty surprised by the whole concept they were performing. At first i had in mind that they were only going to perform a list of dances, but eventually they packed it up into a drama with a story tale. 
                 And old man opened the first scene of the drama, shortly previewing the story. The story was about a girl named Nari who was raised in a professional dancers family. But sadly Nari couldn’t give out her best, so then she entered another side of the world to keep on learning about dancing.

The first dance performed was a Javanesse dance, that pictured happiness and the beauty of Javaneese woman. 1 type of dance, 2 costumes set. My mind was at first questioned why they would dance in a costume that looks as if they wanted to go to a market with a farmers hat. But slowly, they took off the fabric and revealed their true costume, a costume that i truly want to wear & adore.

 Then followed by a dance called Nindak Mask Dance. The character Nari showed up followed by a group of woman dancers and (finally) men dancers! In this scene, it shows Nari’s eager to learn dancing. From the dance’s name we know that there’s going to be a mask involved, and yet there is. All the dancers were fighting for a chance to wear the mask, and the wowing part starts here. There was a slowmotion mode while they were fighting and to me, this was cool. 

After this came a part where Nari entered the other element after opening a box from an old lady. I loved the idea how they set Nari to enter another element in the universe, a darker element where they showed other kinds of dances like hip hop, contamporary dance, and sexy dance here. My heart fell for the contamporary dance that was very beautiful, very romantic. The moves somehow clearly shows the whole drama that was going on.

 There were also some traditional dances performed afterwards like Kalimantan Zalecha Dance and Zapin Betawi Dance ( performed by my cousin!). Then Sexy dance was there to close the show, with its beatful songs. 

 I was fully entertained, and overwhelmed. Traditional and modern dances are pretty much different but they somehow packed it perfectly in 1 show. I also give a big applouse the the musicians and lighting crews that completed the show. I do have 1 quote that i got inspired by, “This dance performance is a form of respect to our Indonesian culture”.

5 in a row

I've been having a thing called "adventure" these past few days...
I feel that my days are full with productivity and that makes me happy :)
Here's a quick preview of the list

-Watched an art dance performance called Nari Mataya Lokatara from Komunitas Tari FISIP UI-

 Was totally entertained the whole show and was also there to support my cousin who was also one of the dancers.
Will write a review about this soon!

-Had a company visit to Net TV!-
 So this is how the editing room looks like...

-Had a fun small photoshoot to start the Saturday morning-

 - Always excited for weddings...-

- Spent the whole day wandering around the city with my man! :) -

so called soldiers?
LDR is tough so that is why we decided to use wisely every bit of the time we have.

When i said the whole day, i did mean the entire day. 
Monas should always stay like this.... in pink... also at day.

The euphoria is back!

This is something that i haven't done in sucha sucha looong time... and finally thrilled to feel the euphoria back :)

 While strolling around, my eyes got distracted at this unique photobooth... As if my legs knew what my heart was feeling, without coordinating with my brain they both just took steps towards the booth. i really got inspired how they used spoons and cake cups to create an amazing artwork

 I never really ever used this such kind of hashtag...

 Meanwhile somewhere down the lobby

 H&M is in town!! And the people from all over Jakarta are too...... The crowd explains clearly how excited the people were :)
