When the Sun Shined over Jakarta

It was a bright scorching Monday morning in Jakarta, when I decided to stroll around the city. I felt like getting my lungs a little bit dust of Jakarta’s polluted air because I had stayed there for about a month and gotten myself in hiding mode ever since, without any exposure to the capital of Indonesia.

Lake Sidihoni, A Lake within Lake Toba

If I miss that while visiting a country, especially if it’s easily accessed, I would feel slightly troubled, one … Continue reading Tokyo Tower and My Incompleteness

Memory of Seoul on May 15, 2016

… 11 Pictures, 849 words, under 5 minutes to read. 😀 The rain was persistent, so was my loneliness, and my willingness to spend one last day in Seoul nicely. Moreover, I had dinner appointment with my super nice host, Irina. I didn’t want to miss it.
