A gloomy day at the construction site made brighter by these two little cuties! They made me miss my Skip! Maybe next time I'll bring my dog to keep me company at work...

art gallery

dress: Topshop

One of the events in Bali last June was an art show and a film showing. Unintentionally, my dress sort of reflected the randomness of the plethora of art pieces from photos to traditional Balinese figurines, juxtaposed with different people and surf films/clips. Even the racerback cutout is unusual!

Terimah Kasi!

Went on a surf trip with my best buddies last week and we spent 8 days in beautiful Bali. We stayed in the quiet town of Canggu, rode around town in our rented scooters, surfed, surfed with our idols (kassia, dane peterson, etc, etc), had nasi goreng, watched and experienced the Deus surf event, oggled the surf stars of the said event, shopped, had bintang, and laughed, laughed, laughed.

This trip couldn't have been better except if we had 8 days more. :) Here are photos from my instagram feed, but these don't even describe half of the fun we had. 

Terimah Kassi Indonesia! See you next year! :)

As 2012 ended, I looked back on that year and was quite thankful for the travel and adventure it gave me. And I dared 2013 to do the same.

So far not much has happened on the travel department but I was blessed with not only a lot of work but also with the opportunity to be able to surf with two of my ultimate surf idols within the last 2 months -- Belinda Baggs and Kassia Meador.

So thanks 2013! So far you've proven awesome. :)
