Morrie & Oslo: 2013, year in review

We’re at the end of 2013 (cue all the “Oh-my-gosh-I-can’t-believe-it’s-been-a-whole-year”) and we’re thinking about how 2014 will be different. We’re not the type to make New Year’s resolutions (mostly because we can never seem to keep them), but we believe that 2014 is gonna be full of new daydreams, new adventures and new curve balls life is likely to throw at us.

It’s been an amazing 365 days and to say it has been crazy is an understatement. We got to meet new people, got inspired by our friends stories, witnessed others joy and happiness, to (finally) have our own workspace, participated on exciting events, learned new skills, got featured on a local newspaper and magazine, made things we always wanted to make and finally, to always enjoy every little things in life and be grateful of everyday’s adventures.

2013 has been so kind to us. It’s been an absolute blast and we hope you’ll continue to jig along with us in 2014. Thank you all for stopping by day in and day out, sending us emails and sharing your appreciations for our blog. We couldn’t and wouldn’t be able to do this without you. We hope all of you have a safe, fun and merry New Year and we look forward to working on our 2nd year of documenting the often mundane, seldom peculiar, and sometimes the extraordinary details of our favorite things, inspirations, projects, and our dreams.

 

Cheers and Happy New Year!

Let's Get Lost: Sydney

Morrie had just come back from her short trip in Sydney and boy oh boy, did she learning to love that city. She absolutely adore the architectures of the town,especially around Paddington and Darlinghurst area. It has that whole urban-slash-vintage quirkiness that so appeals to her. All the friendly greetings from the locals, the neighborhood parks, their spic-and-span buses, and the finger-lickin foods were some of the things she said that really made her trip memorable. And the thing that always gets her about the birds in Sydney are all these parrots and seagulls flying around loose and being all native and free. It’s unnatural!

She loved to hit the pavement and started walking, it’s one of the best ways to get around town and really become immersed in the local life. She walked up along the Oxford Street and made a pleasant walk through scenic alleyways and quiet streets lined with terraces, artists studios, boutiques, sidewalk cafes and many local bookstores up to the Hyde Park. Sydney really grabbed a hold of her heart. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Below are some of the photos that she snapped whilst being all touristy :p

Happy 1st, Morrie & Oslo!

Time flies, doesn’t it? (We secretly wish it didn’t.) It seems like only yesterday we were just sitting around, having hours of seriously random conversations and dreaming up good exciting things to pop into our life.

Well, today is a very special day for us. Morrie & Oslo are blowing out the candle on our first birthday today. Exactly a year ago, we blogged for the very first time. We didn’t know what we were doing, we didn’t know how to blog, or even what to write. But we did it anyway :p

A lot has happen this year. We never expected such exciting things could happen because of our blog. This blog has given us back so much more than we ever put into it. It gave us a reason to learn something new every day. Thank you for all of your support, thank you for all of your kind words, thank you for one amazing year. It’s all have been a wonderful journey and we’re excited to see how’s next year gonna be.

In the meantime, we’re up on our sleeves on something entirely new for Morrie & Oslo. We can’t wait to make it happen :)

Pepy & Jo's Wedding Day

14 September 2013

Perhaps it’s the most beautiful day for Jo (Yanuar Pratama F.) and Pepy, and just like the long yawn, happiness is surely contagious. We felt all the smile and warmth that morning.
