I hope everyone has had a great week and you are now enjoying your weekend. I had an interesting week and as I write this note, I am at one of the cinemas in Jakarta, enjoying Jakarta International Film Festival. I just finished one movie, titled “The Perks of Being A Wallflower” starring Emma Watson. It is a very good movie. I enjoyed it. I still have two movies to watch, “Ilo Ilo”, a Singaporean film, and “12 Years A Slave”. I am taking a lunch break before the second movie, so, I thought I could use the time to write to you guys.
By the way, we’ve had a few days of scenic sunset in Jakarta this week. My friends on social media have posted some beautiful sunset and sky photos of Jakarta. I took a few myself, with my smartphones. As hopeless as it seems with the traffic and infrastructure and pollution, to me, Jakarta still has one of the most beautiful evening skies in the world. So, I am going to share my photos with you. If you haven’t had time to enjoy similar view, make time. Life is short. Don’t spend it all in one place
Have a great week ahead!
How has this week turned out for you? I hope it has been fun. Or even if you had to deal with some frustrating situations, you chose to not be upset for too long. A wise man once said that we should not let the sun go down before our anger subsides. So, choose positivity. Choose to be happy.
By the way, I just got back from my house in Bogor. I am happy to announce that now I have a green front yard and proper fence! It is really satisfying to see the green grass fully grown. I can imagine my cat, Sandy, rolling over playing on it. It will be so much fun for him. As I mentioned before, this is a slow renovation project. So, it may take me a few more months to finish the back yard. Anyway, I’m going to show you my new canopy, fence and front yard:
It has been ages since my last email, hasn’t it? How are you all doing? I really hope that all is well with you. As for me, I am also well.
The last time I wrote to you, I told you about my cat, Sandy. Between now and then, a lot has happened: Sandy’s body line has grown a little over an inch, he’s had his first territorial fight at my garage (got a scar just above his left eye) and has got his picture taken by his human a few dozens times. And he’s also on instagram now! Look him up: s4ndyc4t.
On my part, I am resuming my house renovation. It has been slow, due to several reasons. But, by next week, I will have a proper canopy over the carport and finish the fence. Work has been hectic and the pace has accelerated very quickly. But, all is well
Now, about our favorite things. Mine are obviously coffee and cats. Coffee is a daily diet for me. I just can’t give it up. The second is cats. That is why having Sandy has added to my joy. So, if you have to name two things, which are your favorites, BUT have to start with the letter ‘C’, what would that be? Some of you may say ‘yoga’. Well, first, it doesn’t start with ‘C’. Second, Sandy would say: “Yoga? Piece of cake. I have my yoga moves too.” Yea and by that he means these moves:
Have a great weekend!
