Strung Words: One-Word Crusher

“Do you think a girl and a boy can stay really good friends if one of them confesses but the love is unrequited?”

“No.”

I didn’t know                                                                                                                  I didn’t know

Photographs: Manmadesthics #1

Introducing the first update about my new photography collection, Manmadesthics. Through this project, I hope to capture aesthetically pleasing patterns that are created by humans (hence the title of this collection). Stay tuned for more updates in the future!

Photographs: Cityscapes of Jakarta

I’m starting a new photography collection called Cityscapes. As the name suggests, the collection aims to capture defining landscapes of some of the greatest cities in the world. For this first update, I’m featuring my very own hometown, Jakarta!

Home to over ten million people, malls have become an integral part of this Indonesian capital city. In September 2013, Indonesian president Joko Widodo claimed that there are 173 malls in Jakarta [1], and I wouldn’t be the slightest bit surprised if the number has grown since then. As such, below are two shots I took at Pacific Place, one of the malls in Central Jakarta.

Stay tuned for more Cityscapes updates featuring Jakarta and other cities all across the globe.

Strung Words: Letting Go 1.1

All these words are rushing

out of me

and I’m not sure

where

they

came

from

 

Maybe it’s all the pent-up wishes, the piled up expectations

Maybe it’s me being tired of hoping, of waiting

 

But maybe this is just how,

just how

I

let

go?

Strung Words: Every Time

Every time I fall

I fall hard

And as a result

I bruise easily

Every time I love

I love with all my heart

And as a result

I’m at your mercy

Every time I feel

I feel deeply

And as a result

None can rescue me

But every time

every time comes along

I know the cycle repeats

internal controversy.
