Last time I went to Taiwan someone introduced me to this little instrument: Ukulele!

I went to Jack Shimabukuro’s concert in Taipei and rather like his enthusiastic play. After In Indonesia I knew a friend who owns one, so sometimes I borrowed it and learned some basic chords through Youtube. Lately I got one for my birthday and been excited learning it.

My ukulele, Ibanez UKS10

Here’s the tune, hope you appreciate it!

On the way to the end

Time passed by so quickly, suddenly here I am in my fourth year, preparing my final project for my Bachelor in Architecture. In the past three years a lot of things happened that made me grow. I met many kinds of people and also found new friends that I hope will stay together all my life…

2015 New Year Resolution

Maybe it’s a little late, but here is my 2015 resolution:

  1. More confidence

    • I want to start thinking more positively, worry less about my own competence,
  2. Read less fiction, do more school work

    • I really love reading novels, but this year it’s time to be more serious about my school. 🙂 I’m not really happy with my grades lately, and I guess it’s because I read too much.
  3. Draw for myself at least twice a week

    • I remember I used to draw a lot when I was a child, and actually one of the reason I chose architecture for my major is because I like to draw. When I was in high school suddenly I started to draw less and less, and the rare times when I draw usually I’m not happy with the results. I want to start drawing again no matter what.
  4. Learn at least 1 chapter a month from my Japanese text-book

    • I like learning something new but usually I’m quick to abandoning these interests. I’ve always been wanting to learn a new language and already started on a Japanese text-book 2 years ago, but stopped. I want to continue it.
  5. Participate in at least 3 architecture competitions

    • I’m already participating in 2 architecture competitions right now, so I think this goal is pretty achievable for me. Maybe I’ll join another around mid-year on my school break. I think joining competitions can help me add something to my student portfolios, test the skills I’ve learned in school, or at least I can have some fun doing something other than school works with my friends. 😀  Continue reading 2015 New Year Resolution

Phil Collins – Look Through My Eyes

This song always gives me a better mood. 😀

Break’s almost over

My school break is over in 2 weeks time. As usual, I spent my holiday reading novels and comics. Last 13th-16th I also went on an excursion to Singapore (a really expensive city) with my school.

This holiday I did a lot of thinking about my life and what to do after graduation in 1.5 years time… I’m still really confused.

And another thing is I rediscovered my interests in drawing and writing. Guess this is the right time for a comeback. Hopefully a long lasting comeback.

Row, row, row y…

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream
