This post is more likely for nostalgia. I do remember walking through this area at High Street in Canterbury and then have Latte or English Breakfast tea while working on my work at Café Rouge. Today I am back to my routines in Bogor, working from 9 to 5, and get back in touch with my family in Bandung for the last 3 weeks. Many people asked how it feels back home. My answer would be pretty much the same I reckon, “not too bad”. I guess it because I have been being a nomad for the last 5 years. Continue reading “Café Rouge in Canterbury”
It is impressive how time flies and now my journey in the UK almost meets its end in about less than 2 months. Recently I have time to contemplating life and work although as always hoping can do more time if time allows. But anyhow we just need to do it as much as we can and work as smart as we can. To make it balanced I always try to spend meaningful time with people I care and also make many memories that I can recall back later.
Nothing is forever. I guess life for today but still remembering your ultimate life goal is the best sentence. I just saw this TED Talks about Grit by Angela Lee Duckworth. It is an old talks but I feel it is perfect reminder when you are remembering your life goals in particular long term goals. As stated by Angela, grit is the machine that fuels up your passion and perseverance. I always believe when you do everything by passion and consistency you can achieve more than anyone does in spite of your limitation.
Photo is sculpture replicate of Le Penseur by Auguste Rodin (1904) at Grand Palais, Paris last July. There was an art exhibition to celebrate 100 years of Rodin’s death. I had a terrific Summer holiday in Paris in the same time with my best friends while channeling my great art interest. I even bought a small token from the museum, a replicate of Le Penseur, as a reminder to not taking life seriously and enjoy my time while I can. Because it is okay to be pensive but we also need to enjoy present moment.

The Ring of Gullion Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (OANB) is located in the Northern Island near the border of Republic of Ireland. I had the privilege (probably) become the first Indonesian who climbed this magnificent area.
Belfast, the city with red bricks, terracota colour, titanic city, the troubles, old pubs around the corner and many more. Strolling across this city make you think is this England?
One thing about Northern Ireland, The Land of Game of Thrones. The East Coast, in particular, Gleen Ariff is surely beautiful and very refreshing. I was here during Chrismas break to visit my old friend, Dave Tosh, wandering around the hills, farmlands and abandoned castle.
