This morning I woke up earlier than usual and decided to go to Sudirman-SCBD area for a morning run. I arrived around 6ish and the weather was nice, it was cloudy with a light breeze.
I started my run from across FX mall. At that time, there were not that many people so I could still run comfortably. About half an hour later, I reached Sudirman station. That’s where I saw a swarm of people going towards Bundaran HI area. Uh-oh, what’s happening? I thought.

Last week I had an early morning meeting in Central Jakarta. Knowing that it was going to be one hell of a drive getting there from my house, I decided to leave my car at home and took public transportation instead. Here’s how it went 🙂

Now that I have started to think about getting married, last weekend I went to a wedding fair in outskirts of Jakarta to browse around and find inspirations.
The fair was huge! It took place in a big hall with over 100 of vendors. They came from different categories too, ranging from venues to hand bouquets (Yes, I found one vendor which specialises on hand bouquets only!)… basically everything that you need for a wedding.

Last Ramadan I have been spending less time online and more time trying to get a deeper understanding of my faith. As an Indonesian Muslim in today’s society, I often feel like I don’t really belong to the community. The things I saw in the popular media, the things I heard from my extended network, none of them are in line with my values and beliefs. Then it got me thinking. Have I been losing my faith?
