about blogging

I’m really so lucky to be born in a modern era where everyone can write freely what they want in internet, and i used to write about my daily life and my thoughts that often not that appropriate to be exposed, or i just can’t find anyone to share to, maybe I’m afraid that people will think that I’m goofy and nerdy, that’s why I kept all my thinkings in my head, and just write some part of it here.

however, since last year, I hooked up with photography, and got a little bit busy ever since, because you know, it’s something new for me, and so I spend more time to update my photoblogs than this blog, I feel guilty, but live in Taiwan, i felt that my life is so busy and full of pressure, not that I’m complaining, but just to tell the loyal readers why i seemed to neglect this blog. lately I’ve also made new blog, it’s called fisherman horizon, you can find the link at the sidebar, there i wrote about my diary of spiritual journey, it’s more related to christianity and bible, I tried to separate “religious” writings with “secular” writings, but then i find that it’s impossible, because, I’m a christian, and therefore my point of view, my thinkings are very “biased” (although i don’t think that it’s biased, it’s just me). I am me, so I’ll not be afraid for my friends to think of me that I’m “too religious” because actually 24hours a day, that’s my way of thinking, so, I’ll be true to myself, and not letting the worries of “what will people think of me” get in the way, nothing much will change though, I’ll just write light, daily stuff, but maybe with more amount of honesty towards myself and God compared to what I wrote here.

I won’t close this blog, it’ll still available, but I’ll write there more often, thanks for your attention, i know most of you come because you search for Josh Holloway, he’s quite a nice guy, but there’s an amazing friend that is a lot nicer than him, His name is Jesus, and go to my fisherman horizon blog to know much more about Him and His love letters, God bless you!



[my own photo! yay! don’t have to copy from google again!]

if i can turn back the time (to you who think that this topic is absolutely nonsense, stop reading now)

there’s this one thing that i would cancel.

i’d like to cancel my very own 17th birthday party,


it’s really very complicated,

let me tell you about what 17th birthday party means to a chinese indonesian girl

for most of the girls in my family, school. neighborhood, 17th birthday party is sacred, Continue reading ‘apologetic’

recycling photos

this is a post related to photography, i don’t intend to sound like a pro, but “always get it right” isn’t my motto, because since we have editing programs, we can crop and rotate, and here i want to show you, never discard any photos in your camera, discard the ones you don’t like after seeing it in the computer, not just that sometimes your camera’s little screen is deceitful, but also you can still save that picture. the question is how??

i’m using adobe photoshop lightroom to edit almost my every photos posted on flickr and aminus3, and today i’ll show you how i make a good photo out of an ordinary photo.

case #1



in my opinion, the edited version is much more interesting than the raw version. i only rotate it a little bit and add more contrast.

case #2:



after elimination of other leaf on the left, the focus of the photo is in the center, make it more interesting and easier to be “consumed” by the eyes.

actually, it’s all depends on feeling, because i have done this even before i know about the “framing law” in the world of digital imaging (by imagining there are 9 invisible blocks to fill in every frame) , so take more pictures, make more mistakes, learn from them and it’s not bad to play a little bit with editing software, good luck!


loving the smell

i don’t know about you,

but i love the smell of several things, that maybe considered as smelly or disturbing

such as….

white board marker


CDs (i kind a love the smell of plastic)

that’s all i can remember at the moment…

and making some of my friends surprised, i’m really not fond of the rain’s smell

especially the smell from the soil, it’s just yuck for me… >.<

what about you? tell me!



i’m deciding to go back to my roots and just continue to write in this blog, because….

i don’t know…

i’ve spent too much time taking and editing photographs, that i forgot about writing!

so i’ll be writing somethins very soon,

and if you are interested, i’m active also to write in my (my other blog, well i do have bazillion of blogs)

but i’ve decided, beside flickr, i’ll update only these two (how many times did i broke my own promises??)

please help me to cure my addiction to create new blogs with your comments in this blog, haha

thanks to my silent and loyal readers, i appreciate it a lot~



hey guys, i’m considering to migrate to tumblr, because they are so cool, and they gives full authority for the users to modify EVERYTHING¬† for free, and i’m really impressed. i like wordpress too, but the temptation to be able to post mp3 songs, high-res photos, follow and reblog other user and their posts, change the css settings, is really tempting…

so i’m starting to write there from today, and this month is a trial period, i don’t know whether i’ll permanently move to tumblr or not, so for you who’s really want to follow my stories, you can follow me at private laughter (yes, i named it as my photoblog, because i like it!)

thanks and please visit my new blog!

it’s me!
