Bandung, March 2013
It was one sunny Sunday afternoon and we had a sudden idea of an afternoon stroll. We start from Dago (Ir. H. Djuanda) street, enjoying our walk down the road, then we decided to stop by at the City Hall. The City Hall is particularly empty in the afternoon and we had a little picnic whilst imagining us as tourists in our own city. It was fun!

There’s one person that always crossed our mind when we thought of dreams and passions. She is Ariana Hayyulia Rasyid and we call her Nana. She’s our high school friend but Oslo knew her since elementary school.
She’s into photography. She likes to documented everything, thus she joined POTRET (Parahyangan University’s photography club) when she’s in college. She and her fellow POTRET’s friends held some photography workshops and exhibitions. Check her portfolio here.
In February 2011, she made a blog along with Nathania Gabriele and Aulia Fitrisari, Laugh On The Floor (LOTF). They called themselves Miss Flamingo. They write about nearly everything from profile of creative peoples to bands, from music gigs to art exhibitions, from travel stories to cool-things, etc.
Now, she works as a food journalist at haphap.com, a food-related portal website. She makes reviews about the restaurants or cafés and its foods. And we’ve got the chance to see how she works (thanks for the treat, Na :p).

For us she’s a very passionate and cheerful friend, The Moffatts and 4Peniti’s die-hard fan, and a true dreamer. Traveling around the globe, documenting music concerts all around the world in photos, and having a perfect house (there’s a bookshop, cake shop and toy shop inside her future house!) are some of her dreams. She even draws her future perfect house for us.
She’s halfway in fulfilling all of her dreams and we believe she’ll living her dreams soon enough.

02 March 2013,
It’s the day! We were so happy she’s finally married to her best friend.
The day was beautiful. Mia was a stunning bride, Kijing a dashing groom. It was sunny and bright, everyone was in good spirits, and there was a ton of laughter and love. We all have wonderful memories of that day and we can’t imagine it any other way.
more love, laughs and happiness after the jump!
Meet Lukie Widya Hartono, others called him Lukie. He’s my co-worker at work, so I’ve known him for 2 years now. He’s known for being a vocalist-guitarist of Spring Summer, a pop-ballad band from Bandung. Some of their songs featured on international music compilations, such as Series Two Compilation (USA) and Day to Embrace (THAI). They recently released their EP, “The Additional Ears” (my favorite track is “Small Things Act Like A Giant”).
He graduated from Interior Design major at ITENAS (and he became the first bachelor in interior design that graduated in just 4 years with a GPA above 3.45). He works daily as senior interior designer at House The House and owns a workshop that he inherit from his late father, speciality in wood-making (you can make chair, table, stool, etc made from wood). In his earlier year in college, he and his friend made Jogarworks, a design workshop speciality in wood and resin. One of their works is Minak Djinggo sculpture in Sukabumi, West Java.
“What makes me like this now is because of my father”.
Unlike other father-son stereotype relationship, he had a very special bond with his deceased father. His father taught him about life, love (he told us the story about how Lukie ends up having two girlfriends when he’s still in junior high, it’s all because of what his father did then), courage, truthfulness, and of course music. His father worked as an architect and one of his masterpiece is Preanger Hotel in Bandung, but he played as a bassist in his band back then. The first song his father taught him is Michelle by The Beatles.
Lukie has a dream to become a teacher, because he likes to teach kids anything like music, drawing, etc. For us he’s a very kind person, humorist and we could rely on him. We hope he could live up to his dream and will meet his plus-one as soon as possible, amen! :p
