Take a deep breathe and begin

Every time I come back home from my travels, I would feel immensely overwhelmed by the amount of things in my room. I would want to head back into that space where I can lay back and be zen, never having to worry about the clutter that surrounds me. Google “Tidying” and pages full of Marie Kondo’s “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” pops up. Being really curious, I bought a copy of the book via Kindle and that was the start of my life changing experience. Nobody loves clutter, well, never intentionally. Some tolerates different levels of clutters, most of the time, better than I do. Once in a while, I would be ruthless about purging the things. And yet, things still accumulates and I often find myself back to square one. I thought I was ready for what she had to advice, but I was wrong. I had a huge “eye-opening” moments and they had caused me to reflect on the things she wrote about. I find myself being guilty of finding excuses …

Moments before twilight

During our trip to Bali, we headed to the beach. The coffee we had prior to our stroll to the beach was rendered useless due to the fatigue from the engagement photography session we had earlier in the day.

He took my hand as we strolled down the beach. The closeness of him, and the way his hands holds on to mine, stirs something deep within me. Something that reminds me of how privileged I am to be his partner. In that moment, I realized, I am content and happy to travel the world with Ben. I am secure and would gladly spend the rest of my days globetrotting with only him by my side. Location: Seminyak Beach, Bali Shot with Leica M7 and Portra 400

Floral Magic | New Beginnings

Be yourself, everyone else is taken. Oscar Wilde Every stalk of flower has a lifespan of its own. The path it takes to bloom and grow is similar to the one next to it, yet vastly differing in the choices it takes. Welcome to our humble little space where our life’s aim is to make life beautiful and bringing our daydreams into reality. Oh… Why live another’s life when our own life is a beautiful daydream.
