Lately I am hooked with swapping things with people around the globe.

Rando
At first I was crazy about this application called Rando, what it does is that you send one picture to a random person all over the world, and you'll get one back in return. You can only send a real time photo from your phone, no saved photos, no filters, no zooms. Sometimes you get unique, interesting photos from different countries, but many of the times you get mediocre photos from South Korea, lol. (No, seriously like more than half of the users are from South Korea)

Here are some of my favorites that I got from all over the world!


Art Swap
[profile] krissaur saw my post about distress inks and she asked me if I want to do art exchange with her. OMG! The last time I did art exchange was sometime in 2009, I was so excited when she asked. Sadly I don't have all of my art stuff with me at my apartment room, so I have to wait til weekend to do it.

Postcrossing
I saw Esti tweeted about postcrossing the other day, and I was intrigued. In this digital era when people talk to each other online, snail mail has became a rare thing. Postcrossing's concept is that you send one postcard to a person, and get one random postcard in return. I went to several stationery and book stores near my office yesterday, but there are no good Indonesian-themed postcards out there. I live in Jakarta and I wish to find anything that depicts Jakarta but alas, the ones available is a photo of Bunderan HI from 20 years ago with a bad quality print. Seriously, this concerns me.

It was harder than I thought! I really want to take better photos but I always procrastinate and ended up with the photos that I had on the last day of the challenge (-___-). Anyway it was a good challenge that helps me brush up my photography skill! Will join the next round!

I went to see Mika on Friday with Dhani and her friend and her friend's sister. It was wonderful to see him live, he's just so energetic with his quirky little band and quirky self. He is so unique and he seemed to be enjoying what he's doing, expressing himself through the art of music and it turned out BEAUTIFUL. I love the lyrics to his music, he's just brilliant. It is inspirational to see a person like this, really. Seeing him live reminded me of how much I love art and it encouraged me to look back and pursue the dreams I've forgotten.

Okay, anyhow, I tried concert photography again, with my new lens this time and IT WAS REALLY DIFFICULT OMG. I don't know what went wrong, I got great photos from Adam's concert and this time ... like none. None of the pics I took are great. I really need a good lesson on photography (I'm going to nag on my brother the next time he's home).

I know why )

After what feels like a thousand years, I finally own a smartphone, OMG. I've been wanting to switch to one but I hesitated because I wanted a new computer more than a phone ... I felt like I could live without a phone as long as I have my computer and an internet connection. But anyway, my I'm still not sure with what computer I want so I decided to get a phone first. And it is ... *drumrolls* A SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 2.


It is awesome 8D, needless to say, but I really need to get myself used to it since I've been with a much simpler, stupid non-smart phone for years. When you look at it especially in stores, side by side with other phones, it seems gigantic but I've been using it for a couple of days now and it doesn't feel weird at all.

I didn't get a good photo of me and my outfit, but I think I looked good :p The concert venue located on top of a shopping mall, so I went there early to just shop around and see what's the situation with the line. After getting lost for not being able to find any U-turns, I reached the place at over 3 pm. Turns out, at 3 pm there are already people lining. I was waiting for my friend Uciel [livejournal.com profile] small_yuy so I spent my time moving my car to a better parking spot and changing clothes in a gym right in front of the line since I have a membership there (that I never use).

Thankfully Uciel got her group of friends lining early, so we managed to save a spot for a better view to the stage. We waited forever, I was anxious but I talked to Uciel's friends to calm my nerves. When we got in, people were rushing to get a good spot, and Uciel and her friends were going to the right side of the stage (Ashley's side) and I was like "No! I'm going to be here because I'm ... Tommy!". I couldn't even form a complete sentence to explain the situation, but I think they would have guessed. So I was there standing alone an hour and a half before the show, with a couple of loud girls in front of me and a smelly guy who kept on shoving me to the right. Long story short, it was hell and I wanted to go home.

But as soon as the show starts and Tommy came out, I was just stunned. He was so pretty. Adam's voice is Ah-Mazing as usual. I managed to enjoy the show AND get good pics so it was all good :D
