Holding Hands

Barbara Streisand - Somewhere
Found at abmp3 search engine

There's a place for us
A time and a place for us
Hold my hand and were half way there
Just hold my hand and I'll take you there
Somehow...
Someday, somewhere...

Little Shop In A Corner

A small and cute place at Wijaya street
an office -cum-shop I used to visit;
an inspiring place warm and lovely with a vintage mood...
back then.






Flowers of The Ball

What better thing than flowers to make a party merrier?
But wait, which 'flowers' we're talking about?





"In joy or sadness, flowers are our constant friends."

Thank You!!

"I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder."
~G.K. Chesterton

This blog at its early age has reached its first four digit hits, over a thousand already now. So thank you for visiting, and I hope I could share a little bit more, and a little bit longer. This blog has been helping me thru my hard times, and keeping the memories of my good times; I hope reading it  will give you a little joy too!


Sonnet: I Thank You

BY HENRY TIMROD
I thank you, kind and best beloved friend,
With the same thanks one murmurs to a sister,
When, for some gentle favor, he hath kissed her,
Less for the gifts than for the love you send,
Less for the flowers, than what the flowers convey;
If I, indeed, divine their meaning truly,
And not unto myself ascribe, unduly,
Things which you neither meant nor wished to say,
Oh! tell me, is the hope then all misplaced?
And am I flattered by my own affection?
But in your beauteous gift, methought I traced
Something above a short-lived predilection,
And which, for that I know no dearer name,
I designate as love, without love’s flame.

Japan In The Air

The tsunami that struck Japan recently has touched and moved people's heart in every corner of the world.
The way we react, it depends on each individual. For Indonesian designers, it's probably through their work.

Ever imagining how it is the life behind the limelight?
It's not always as bright as it may look :-)

Lovely Place

Spotted Melly Goeslaw and her hubby, Anto  :-)
Went to dinner after the fashion event; we decided to go to a place nearby, Y&Y
Oh, no, I wasn't about to promote this place or anything. It's just that I found this place nice, well designed, good service and good food. Nothing's really extraordinary though, but it's nice. 
Or perhaps it's because the companionship and good laughter have made it perfect.
