On Fairy Tale Weddings

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.

Ramadan 2017

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?

An Unfortunate Event

Guys, I have been scammed. So recently I took on a freelance job that I found online and agreed to work on a project. I finished my work but then the client just vanished after I sent the invoice. I have no idea how to trace the client because all I have is her email, skype, and her profile on a freelance portal where I met her.
