I have arrived. I am home. Means,
I don't want to run anymore.
One needs to be truly established in the
here and now.   And to embrace life
with all its wonders.
Thich Nhah Hanh.

Miss Red.

Meet miss Red.
My new cartoon character,
(but today she's wearing white, for no reason,
just because she fells so.)
Miss Red only watching things goes by,
 therefore there's no lips.
 Loves wearing flip flops, but always ended
in an appropriate size, mostly too big.

3 Moons.

I believe,
somewhere out there
in a galaxy
trillions of light years away
theres a place exactly like this
with me in it.
only there
there are 3 moons.

Moon By The Window.

                                        I was so charmed by " Moon By The Window",                                   
                                                       a book about  the calligraphy
                                                         and Zen insights of Shodo Harada.                                            
                                 I like it so much, I tried  to interpret some phrases
                                                                             into watercolor drawings.
                                           Hope these are close enough:-*

   I picked my way
Through a mountain road
And I was greeted
By a smiling violet.
(Matsuo Basho 1644-1694)

The Skylight.

  What I love the most of my home is the skylight in my room.
watching the blue sky in day time, white clouds changing forms over it,
sometimes birds fly across chirpping happily
the sun shines through brighten the room,
When it rains, raindrops running over the skylight roof,
watching white clouds turned dark,
I love listening to the rythm, and love the smell of rain,
And when the night comes, the moon shines bright,
waving at the moon, I said, 'hello moon, thank you for dropping by...'

Happy Birthday!

My wishes for you is that this life becomes all that you want it to.
Your dreams stay big and your worries stay small.
You never carry more that you can hold.
And when you're out there getting where you're getting to.
I hope you know somebody who loves you and wants the same things too.
Yes dear, those are my wishes.


                                                                     A city is a mother,
 from whose womb, the second you were born,
Onced you live there, she is the veins in your hands,
You know by heart the crossroads and alleys,
Onced you melt in her bittersweets,  She'll live in you forever.

(Saini K.M., Sacred City, 1968)

Manggar, a small quiet town in eastern Belitong
is known as 'The town with 1001 coffee shops'.
Of course it's not that much, but, there's always
a simple modest traditional coffee shops in every corner of the town.
It's where people met, gather, and communicate each other.
It's the pulse of the town.

     An enchanting island, with unique landsacpes,
        serveral hills, empty clean streets, with timber houses here and there,
                                                                      spacious natural environment.                                        
                                          Pearly white sandy beaches, 
                                                        crystal clear turquoise water,
                                         a unique landscape
                     with magnificent gigantic granite stones on it's shallow beaches.
 Living is simple. far from over consumption.
one or two traditional markets, no supermarkets,no ATM machines nor movies.
Life is ordinary. nothing fancy, nothing exiting.
But everything is just enough. Quiet.
Caught in the silence of nature.

                                                                       What can I say about Uluwatu? 
                                                                                        Uluwatu is a poetry.


On every sidewalks in Bali we find small baskets
filled with flowers, rice etc. called 'canang sari'
 offered to the gods 3 times a day to show gratitue.
