Read: Smith Journal


*****

Meet Frankie's little brother: Smith. Just as quirky, as geeky, as playful, as neatly designed, and just as interesting.. but this one is for boys (and girls like me who sometime enjoy dreaming about being a little bit more tomboy)

Smith Journal is published by the same press as Frankie. I was totally hooked by their first edition's introduction about being imperfect..and it says "This magazine is for anyone interested in the world, for everyone who has been out there living life & not just studying it from afar."..and my childhood fantasy of being one of the curious and playful lost boys found its match.

(as quirky as it can be, they gave away vintage carrot and cabbage seed in one of their edition!)

Soirée: One Night Stand*


*****

‘One Night Stand’ is a party hosted by Cemeti Art House in celebrating their 25th anniversary. The idea was to held a one-night art project where everything is ‘happening’ simultaneously. Artists and art practitioners will be asked to contribute ‘anything’ for one night, to bring in artworks to exhibit or create an artwork on the spot, such as murals, performances, and video works. 

Being 25 and famously known as the pioneer of contemporary art in Indonesia, Cemeti has distinctive charisma that makes almost anything displayed and performed in the space breath art. Something they deserve throughout the 25 years commitment, for sure.

Well.. just let the picture do the talk.

Celebrate: Turn 27


*****

Last year, out of my usual practice..I decided not to throw a birthday party and just being careless instead (here and here). This year, I found enough reason to throw a party. You know..turning 27, last birthday being a miss instead of a mrs.. the list goes on. 

Since I am a grown up now (that doesn't sound as convincing as I wish, does it?) and with all the big parties queuing up this year; I don't want a big fuss on this day.. just close friends and family, guess list narrowed down to only 30, fresh-picked flowers, my dog, picnic, and homemade lunch in my secret garden.

 Simple and easy.. just as I wished it would be :)
