sept 13th, jak-japan matsuri 2015
it's been a while. coming to japanese event like this always reminded me of my childhood and youth. days filled with getting home quickly after school and woke up early sunday morning to watch all the animes. also days of me trying to memorize and understand my favorite bands' lyrics, which made me decide to pursue degree in japanese literature.

looking back, it seems like such a distant past.

every time going to see matsuri, i felt like transported back to my younger years. time stopped and things going on just okay. an escapade in form of another culture. i can just sit at the pavement, eating takoyaki, listening to cover band music, and all my troubles seem so far away. no worries at all.

maybe i left my innocence there. in this period of time where the only thing i worried about is how to wake up early to watch sunday morning cartoon.


A Look at the Sky

filler post. sorta
photo taken sometime ago when i was (finally) making trip to major street in jakarta, gatot soebroto (equivalent to new york's wall street). working in a less hectic region of jakarta have made me used to less traffic, less time to commute from work, and so on. but one day, having an appointment in such business region in jakarta made me have to commute there.

guess what, all those traffic jam made me crazy. i barely cannot stand 1,5 hour to commute to work, let alone all those long traffic jam since 6 am in the morning that my friends from outer jakarta have to face everywhere on their way to work. kudos and props, but i am so done.

somewhere while waiting for the bus, i snapped this photo. trying to avoid the long march of various vehicles on the street, i look at the sky. 

in other note, a bingsoo would be nice.

other things:
finally an iphone i covet after 5s
seeing kim kardashian in (sorta) new light
that blanket of snow, tho. also photo goals with the torii
missing those young, innocent days
more like a guide to dreamland
things you'll only see on streets of jakarta. i swear i can attest to 70% of that. not that this city is weird, it's just different lol
it just hits too close to home

have a great weekend, everyone!


Donburi Ichiya Lippo Mall Puri

off for quick fix of japanese food last weekend. been meaning to go here since my friend heavily raved their dishes. my verdict? it was pretty nice.

i'm always a fan of seafood and i find their aburi salmon don with mayo (above) tasted decent. the torched salmon was half raw, but yummy and somewhat juicy. definitely not fishy. i quite like it. the mini portion above was just right for small (yet often) eater like me. but i kinda find their vegetable fritters is somewhat dry.

the restaurant is nice. kind of reminds me of small restaurants in japan as i usually seen on people's traveling photos. they play some old japanese songs too.

definitely coming back to try their other menus!
