Photo Essay : JAPAN

In early March last year, when the winter has faded out but yet spring hasn’t show its face, I spent several weeks living in Japan. It was my first time stepping my own feet in the country and no doubt, I was beyond excited given the fact that I could experience a new culture in another part of the world.

I did observe things during my stay. I watched how people interact with each other, how they behave, how they do things.

This post is not going to be a travel guide or a food review. It’s more like a photo essay, when I put my photos from Japan here with a short description for each one. Just simply because…

I want you… to see what I saw.

Dinosaurs come alive at China!

When I was a little kid, I used to be a fanatic fan of Jurassic Park. It’s like I could and I always wanted to re-watch all of the Jurassic Park movie. Even if the earlier movies seem not real enough, it doesn’t matter to me.

I knew exactly that Dinosaurs are not longer alive since 65 million years ago or so. But I often caught my self wondering and imagining that I’m living in a world where dinosaurs are still alive, when you can see them with your own eyes, and you have to run away escaping from the T-Rex. Life will be so much exciting, I thought. Lanjutkan membaca Dinosaurs come alive at China!

The Beauty of Gulangyu Island

Have you ever dreamed of living in an island which is traffic-free & has a great view that you think you don’t wanna go back to the city you used to live in? Well, I never thought about it actually. And I don’t even know that this kind of island does exist. Not until I found this beautiful island during my last visit to Xiamen (also known as Amoy), China last September.

Gulangyu Island is located in the southwest of Xiamen City (厦门). People know it for its natural beauty, its varied architecture, and the ancient relics. Only electric-powered vehicles are permitted here so there will be no pollution or noise. But who needs a vehicle? This island is only 2 square kilometres in area! Quite small, but it is a home for some people & it’s the favorite tourist destination in Xiamen.

I guess everyone knows Bali. It’s so popular among the travelers because of its beautiful beaches, its culture, and its nightlife. Although this island is pretty small, every inch of Bali offers you a unique & unforgettable experience. So don’t ever EVER left your camera at home.

The Stone Cafe, Bandung

Well, I was here because I was sooo bored & tired, and I thought this place might give me a nice short break during my hectic week. You know, that moment when you’ve been doing your college assignments all day but you got stuck and stressed? That’s what I felt that day. So I thought, “Maybe I should go to a restaurant or a cafe? Just me and my laptop, so I’ll be able to focus better on doing my assignment. Right! I’m going to a cafe in the mountain hill!” Lanjutkan membaca The Stone Cafe, Bandung
