It's 2019!

( )

It's 2019! I can't believe it... I'm absolutely shocked by how quickly this past year went. I'm also realising as I write that it's already 1st of February. So January is officially over wow and in a blink we are celebrating Christmas again. 

As everyone does, I decided to make a weekly/monthly resolution. I have a couple of personal ones like making time for my health both mentally and physically as well as actively trying to embark on a technology cleanse and read more. Those seem to be pretty doable for me. I've started doing little tricks for myself like putting my phone and remote away in a drawer and setting a book on the table so it's easier for me to grab the book than my phone and the remote. Those may be silly tricks but I feel like a month into the new year it is definitely working! 

Another resolution I made was to create more. I had this blog for a long time and as you can see... it can sort of take a back seat and I sometimes feel like I can get lost in the whole process. So, the resolution is to create for myself and focus on making things that push my creative boundaries. I used to carry my camera with me everywhere I went but now I resort to my iPhone because it's just easier?! But that means it's more lazy of me. I like writing, I like posting pictures and talking about travel - so why don't I dedicate more time to it? I figured the best step was to share to you all that I'm going to try more and I feel like by putting it out in the world, it sort of gives me some accountability! 

I also want to thank everyone who comes and visit this space of mine. Thank you thank you thank you. Thank you for taking the time to read, respond, or just scroll through. I appreciate each and everyone of you. It means the world to me that you chose to check back. 

I have a lot of exciting changes and projects coming ahead and I'm so thrilled to share them with you all when the time comes so please keep checking back! 

Cheers my dear friends! Hope your New Year is off to a great start! 

I will be posting again soon I promise! 

Fierce and Love,

Borobudur and Prambanan Temple

(  / )



This is the last installment of my Jogja adventure and I thought the post on Borobudur and Prambanan Temple deserves a post on its own. Just because these temples are just so marvelous and majestic... I was constantly filled with awe when I explored these temples. From the amazing architecture to the rich history behind it... woah!

Sunrise at Borobudur Temple

Borobudur is the biggest Buddhist temple in the world and this stunning place allows me to travel back in time to enjoy an unrivaled combination of history, culture, spirituality and natural beauty. No words can describe my level of happiness as I made my way up to the top, just being in the magical and majestic Borobudur when it's not opened to the public yet. Loved the feeling of peace and tranquility as I sat the top and caught the most stunning sunrise. Best experience to kickstart the brand new year! 




My mum entered me into a Photography contest without me knowing and submitted this picture below... I freakin won the contest and got this picture published on print media nation wide?! 




Prambanan

Prambanan is the largest Hindu Temple in Indonesia, and one of the biggest in Southeast Asia. It was scorching hot when we visited so I reckon if you want to have a nice experience exploring the temple compounds I recommend you it in the late afternoon so you can also catch the sunset!


Fierce & Love,
