It was a cold and lazy morning. We woke up not as early as the other days. But it was still early. It was around 8AM we purposely woke up just to visit the coin laundry just at the corner of our airbnb area. There were no one there, I thought we will bump with some locals. Actually, Mr. F chose this airbnb because it was close to coin laundry which is very convenient for us. We weren’t brought so many clothes. You know, winter clothes are thick enough to fill our luggage. So doing laundry is the best choice to save more space in the luggage.

Museum of Modern And Contemporary Art in Nusantara or shortened as Museum MACAN (macan means tiger in bahasa Indonesia), is recently opened a few months ago in Jakarta.

It was born by Yayasan Museum MACAN, a non-profit foundation.

‘Art Turns World Turns’ is the current exhibition since it’s opening on November 7th.

I visited here because the infamous installation by Yayoi Kusama ‘Infinity Mirrored Room‘. I couldn’t make it to visit her exhibition in Singapore this year. 😦 So this was a very good chance to see her art!

I’ve been missing in action

I’ve left this blog for around 10 months and left my Japan trip last year hanging. Very very sorry! (.__.)

I’ve started to become busier since February until last month (and will be busy again next year) 😦

First, I was busy preparing for the 2nd store project of one of Japanese retail. Our store is located in Cakung – East Jakarta. It’s grand opening was in the end of October. So yeah, everybody was busy until the day! I was staying in a rental room provided from my office around that area. Because it will be a hassle to always come back and forth from my home at other province to depart to Cakung everyday.

Second, me & Mr F was planning for our wedding. We bought a house which should be start to build next year by the developer (we saved our money for the down payment). Then we went to some wedding exhibitions this year to gather the information, calculate budgets and find some inspiration for us. We went around many places to survey and meet the marketing for the wedding halls.

Third, after done all the 2nd store opening, we prepared for our engagement day. We went to see a person who can calculate a good day / date for us (well this is following chinese culture & beliefs). Actually both of us planned to have engagement date on 03 December 2017. We were so glad that the man predicted that it was a good date for us this year! We didn’t even tell him about our plan! Then since my zodiac is horse and his is dragon. Dragon will not have a good year next year (according chinese belief). So it’s not suggested that a dragon to hold a wedding next year (it will be a year for dog zodiac). We plan to have it in 2019. We got March for our wedding month. 🙂

I’ll return to Japan trip post soon!
