Blending With Nature: Gede Pangrango


I've always wanted to hike a mountain although i'm more of an ocean person. However, since my family are Earth-water-air adventurers, I decided to join my auntie for my first hike to Mt. Gede Pangrango National Park with my brother, and my auntie's family.

Exposing Reality

I have actually been playing with film camera since a long time but I never really had the chance to develop them (and a few of the rolls were burned, sadly because of my clumsiness). But this time, I saved two rolls that I took with my friend's pocket analog camera. These pictures are taken at random times, therefore these pictures are basically very honest and kind of shows you what life is like for a student in Bali.

Here are some of my favourites:

Ingin Pulang: Bali Banyuwangi Malang


Stasiun Kereta Api Malang

This holiday, a few friends and I decided to go back home by train. But since we're traveling on land, we decided to stop by a few cities before returning to big city Jakarta.

Semester Two: Recap

I feel bad for neglecting this blog for quite a while now… Semester two is almost over and I cannot wait for the Ramadan and the holidays! While I cannot write every specific detail of what I’ve been through this semester, here’s a glimpse of my semester two:

Phylum: Chordata / Class: Reptilia
Species: Chelonia mydas

Practical Activities
So basically, this semester my class had two subjects that involved practical activities (actually three, but we don’t really count swimming as a practical activity) which are zoology and ichthyology. In Zoology, we learned about the different phylums that exist in our big blue planet, and in Ichthyology we learned about fish and their general existence (gonads, fecundity, distribution, morphology, etc.) Everything was fun while it lasted. My drawing skills grew quickly, as we always draw what we see during practical activities.

Sun-kissed: Nusa Penida


One of the perks of living in Bali is the plenty amount of public holidays you get, due to the many ceremonies and prayers the major belief (Hindu) has to do. For the non-Hindus, that means a holiday. An escape. People figure that being in Bali itself is already an escape, but sometimes you need to escape to another island. To experience different people, culture, places, food and so on. This February, we get a week of holiday, thanks to Chinese New Year and local event Galungan. Out of the blue, a few friends and I decided to head back to our friend’s home, Nusa Penida.
