70

70th Independence Day of Indonesia



What would you do in your life when you were 70 years old? Stay dynamic and productive or just laying down at your bed, wasting time the rest of your life.
We will know, in that 70 years many things happened. All sadness or happiness just come and go easily. Everything changes. Change doesn't happen overnight. It takes a long time, a long journey to grow. The country was grow. Yeah, we were grow. G-R-O-W! We are tired of growing already and never stop growing. Sounds like an old generic stereotype. You may be strong. You may be rich. But to change this growing country to reach the top we need to have nationalism in our head, in our heart. Respect for pride. That's growing up is all about.

Generally, I love the symbol of my country, Indonesia. We have many! The flag is the one. The color of red and white seems so elegant and able to describe our mentality properly. Red is our blood, and white is our bones. Blend together in this powerful synergy.


 


A whole new chapter is just begin. Let's start from the smallest thing. Keep this country clean, for example?

Beach Essential

Late summer is a perfect time to go some place that can reflect the summer perfectly before the season ends. We are talking about BEACH! White sands, corals, mangrove, wind, and sun. Who doesn't love it?

I'll share my beach essentials on this post. These are some essentials you need to prepare before you go. Check it out!


Clockwise
Beach shawl: Bali's local market (unbranded)
Summer hat: Forever XXI
Camera: Nikon D3100
Sunglasses: Zara
Wallet: Guy Laroche


1. Beach Shawl
A must have items at the beach! To covered your sexy outfit or bikini. You can also handle it to drying your body after water activities. In some case, you can sit on it over the white soft sand. So multifunctional! 

2. Summer Hat

How to make a summer in style? A perfect hat absolutely! Other than going to look in high fashion, summer hat also serves to protect your face from the directly sun burn.

3. Camera

Do not want to miss this moment. Capture your best summer style and stay exist on social media :) Prepare your best lens, whether you want a normal lens, fish eye, eagle eye, go pro, etc. The most important is don't forget to check your battery and memory card first.

4. Sunglasses

Control your eyes under the sweltering sunlight by using sunnies. Believe me, you'll look more stylish and easier to the eyes wide open.

5. Sunblock
Sun care is something I take very serious and I want to spread that UV radiation is bad for you. So, protect your skin with SPF lotion. I use two different brands for this product, because of the difference between skin face and hand & body. Not only for long hours outdoor activity, but recommended for all day even when you out of home for a while. Start to care your skin, and make sun protection into your everyday skincare ritual. If needed, you could add tanning lotion too. It makes your skin looks glowing and exotic.

6. Wallet
There are so many pretty things are sold at the beach, either foods and drinks. Some beaches are freely open for public, but sometimes you need to pay first. In case you want to go to another island across the sea, you have to rent a boat, and it's spend many costs for sure. If the resort have water sports, I bet you can't resist yourself and at the end you want to try it. Diving, canoeing, parachuting, even banana boat! The point is... Don't leave your money at home!


Enjoy your late Summer Holiday!

Newest Town

Lampung has many counties. This city grows bigger current years and crowded especially at the downtown. Then the last governor make a subtlety to move the central of business in a quite town named Kota Baru, means a newest town in city.
Most people don't know why the construction was stopped and never completed. It ended as a beautiful spot to photo hunt or for aero-playing.

The thing I did when we finally crossed the city limit was pull over on the side of the freeway and take some photos. It's such a wonderful city escape. I enjoy being in this kind of village, where some green fields along the road, totally brings back to cowboy's life in Texas about 1960's, a place and time I am absolutely obsessed with! Super calm, quite, and peaceful place. No vehicles. No industries. No dust. No smoke. Sometimes you just need to be a villager to feel how wonderful our nature is.

Take your time. Get off from the metropolitan!


 "Take Me Home Country Roads" - John Denver

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue ridge mountains, Shenandoah river
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, growin' like a breeze
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads
All my memories, they gather 'round her
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrops in my eyes
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads
I hear her voice in the mornin' hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin' down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads...
