I couldn’t recall where I took this photo, but it was somewhere in a cafe in Mataram, Lombok, Indonesia. A drink to stimulate the brain anyone? Also, what’s a simple syrup? As opposed to a complicated syrup? Haha!

A Doggone Lombok Biker

A Doggone Lombok Biker

And then I saw it. I first couldn’t believe it. I was filled with awe yet a little worried at the same time. This motorcyclist was zipping through the narrow streets of Mataram late at night, with a canine at the neck of the bike. I stepped on the throttle to catch up to snap it in action.

Lombok Bau Nyale Festival 2015

Lombok Bau Nyale Festival 2015

Bau Nyale is an annual event. Bau in the Sasak language means “to-catch” and Nyale is a type of sea worm that surfaces only around this time of the year. The locals believe, that the Nyale are not just regular seaworms, but are considered as sacred creatures that bring prosperity to those who honor them, or misfortune to those who ignore them.

You see, I needed a jolt, and looking back on all of my previous jobs, although it has been in the sports industry, it was a mini-thunderbolt at every switch as I’ve always craved for diversity that bolsters my learning experience, From online gambling software, to sports media rights, to indoor golf simulators, to …

In Transition

Reconstruction. Transition. Remodeling. Mutation. Change. 2014 has kept the ball rolling with my theme of 2013. I have been embracing changes with open arms. After my divorce in May 2013, I decided to take control of my life to lose the gunk that has antecedently been rusting my soul. Firstly, I went into full decluttering mode – dispossessing most of my belongings without equivocation. Secondly, I joined a gym in a bid to get fit – and has now become a routine. I …
