The small things in life in a few paragraphs and snapshots

Blessed Weekend and Ied Mubarak

Hello 🌹

I am sending out the note early as this Friday is Indonesia’s Independence Day and next Monday is already Iedul Fitri/Lebaran holiday.

Oh, by the way, thank you for sending me your songs with city names. It was fun 😃 I got in total 16 songs with about 20 cities mentioned including my birth city: Solo! While New York is likely the city mentioned the most in songs. Out of the 20 cities, I have only been to 5 of them including Jakarta and Solo.

So…How is it going in your part of the world? Have you given yourself some time-out from your hectic world and had some time off holidaying with your loved ones (or traveling solo like what I have done on many occassions)? I hope you have as I am sure we all deserve a break now and then. As for me, I just made another radical decision which I do not really know where it will really lead me. But, life is about taking risks. So, I’ll deal with whatever comes my way. That radical decision has opened the door for me to do what I enjoy doing, that is traveling (for fun)! 😃 So, by end of August, you should see some pictures from Belitung Island and its small group of neighboring islands. I have been wanting to go there for a while. So, I’m really excited about the trip 😃 I am also planning a stay in either Bali or Gili Trawangan afterwards. Still undecided. If you have any recommendation on where to stay in either island, let me know.

This Tuesday, I had the chance to go to another concert. If you grew up in the ’90s like I did, you likely know a swedish indie band (well, not so indie anymore now) called The Cardigans and their songs “Carnival”, “Love Fool” and “Rise and Shine”. I went in a group of 12. So, it helped to make things more lively as the concert itself wasn’t as exciting as we hoped it would be. I have a few snapshots from my ancient Sony Ericsson phone and am sharing them with you.

Have a blessed weekend. To my moslem friends, I wish you all a wonderful Iedul Fitri holiday with your families.
