Senandung Melagu

We always had a thing for Indonesian songs, especially those from the 60′s to 70′s. The harmonious melody adorned with effortless yet poetic lyrics. Every so often the lyrics is about love but many is about daily mundane things that you could never think people could actually make a song about it. It’s so amusing and made us laugh sometimes.

When we listened to those songs, we always imagined how it is to live in those years and how the people doing their routines back then. A certain thing we noticed about them is how cheerful is the tone of the songs with the way the singer sang, and how it evoked some kind of happiness to the people who hear the songs for the first time. They really made our day.

So, we gather some of our favourite ones in hope that you can feel the uplifting vibe even in the rainy and cloudy days (just like in Kanazawa & Bandung these days *sigh*). Here is our Senandung Melagu mixtape. You can listen on 8Tracks or just download it here.

Morrie & Oslo: Two better than one

People said that you have to travel solo to learn about yourself

“I think one travels more usefully when they travel alone, because they reflect more.”
Thomas Jefferson

But to be honest, traveling together is more fun than alone, especially with your better half. There are more new things/experiences that you can share, you learn how to compromise with each other and be more patience as well as to learn more about each other, and the most important thing is you have your own photographer! :)

“The journey is better when you have someone to share it with, because you get to be yourself and share yourself.”
- Unknown

“Happiness is only real, when shared”
- Christopher McCandless

And yes, we couldn’t agree more.
So when it comes to traveling, two is always better than one.

Morrie & Oslo: DIY Pre-Wedding

The great thing is that when we’re together we live with a vivid appreciation of how brief and precious life is.
Every single moment that we are alive and we are together is miraculous.

We knew we were beneficiaries of chance, that pure chance could be so generous and kind, that we could find each other in the vastness of space and the immensity of time.

We found each other in the cosmos and that was wonderful.

Sincerely,
Adel & Fin

Summer Pops

Summer weather is our very favourite, the feeling of scattered rays hitting your skin, as you bask with a book beside a breezy window. All those long balmy days, soft summer winds and lazy nights, when it is so warm and steamy and nice.

We celebrates all the good things about the warmer months in town with endless icy treats, trips to the markets for sweet fruits, floral explosions, and impromptu road trips with all those cheerful sounds of pop songs in the backgrounds. All those lovely things are perfect to wile away the sunshine-filled season, and we thought it would be a good idea to compile a list of our take on summer-loves inspired that we can refer back to when we’re lying in our beds at night tossing and turning because it’s too hot to fall asleep. That’s not to say we do really have an urge with summer, despite all of its loveliness. We just tend to forget all of its perks when complaining about the tortuous, sweaty, and unpleasant heat.

Since the high-degree Celsius is inevitable, and it somehow worsen at night, we hope these catchy tunes will helps to forget that at some point. Best served with a fan ready on your bedside, a cold tall glass of ice tea or better yet, your favorite ice cream/stick with a working air-con right above your bed.
