my Instagram - for the weeks or so


Honestly I am hardly log in and spend time inside Instagram anymore. I usually only posting my pictures there and keep them on my blog as slide show. You will notice that, it is on the top left hand corner of my blog. I love taking photos with Instagram, I always do ... I just love the earlybird filter all the time. I used to spend so much time inside Instagram to socialize, getting onto popular page and having awesome followers. However, it changes over time. I am just too busy to keep up with that. I do keep in touch with some friends from Instagram outside Instagram. We communicate a lot in Facebook, twitter or simple whatsapp. I hardly go out  and hang out with friends in real time but I do keep in touch with them through social media. It is actually funny when I found out someone commented on me and saying ... I don't understand friendship, i need a friendship101 lecturing ... oh well! I just smile everybody is entitled with their own opinion on me. As far as I am concerned, I know what I am looking for in friendship. For me friendship is special .... it is not about number, BUT it is about QUALITY. I am looking for quality in friendship off course. A quality where we can learn and be inspired by each other. A quality that still guarantee space for us to breathe and run our own private life, a quality where we respect each other way of looking at life .... a quality where we know our differences bring goodness to the friendship itself. It helps build us inside out ... not the other way around.

Switha Camaro is one of friends that I know for long time inside Instagram. Her picture is on the pull of picture above with me. She stays in Jakarta, and I met her by accident in Singapore few weeks ago. We never met, but we talk a lot way too lot in Facebook, whatsapp or even Instagram. We love to exchange ideas and inspirations. We share quite similar interest when come to art, photography and style. So it was a blast to finally meet her in person without any prior plan. I remember that day, I was walking inside the Bugis Junction Mall and I saw this lady carrying her daughter. I capture her unique style first especially her pixy stylist hair. Then ... BOOM! she looks so familiar to me ..... I then laugh ... off course who else she could ever be ... she is Switha Camaro. She was so shock when I finally tap her shoulder. Can you imagine that .... We talk a lot and a lot ... sometimes I feel she is almost like sister to me. Well she is super talented, she was chosen as one of the talented Instragamer by Instagood few years ago. She has a unique style and very original on every of her pictures inside Instagram. If you don't believe me ... click here to check her account on Instagram. I hope you enjoy her pictures as much as I do. Today both of us are hardly inside Instagram anymore, meaning being fully active inside Instagram anymore. We have other fun things to explore ......


Yeap! and that is drawing ..... making art journal. I had stumble myself into this new hobby for the past 4 months since we came back from Europe holiday last June. AND ... I just love it ..... I never regret it a bit. I learn a lot of new things and new way of doing my art. It is so super fun to actually using my hands to create something. I work with digitally most of the time, editing pictures or even making collages. Today, I go out there get my hand dirty, play with glue and messy my work space. Yes! Art give me a new dimension in looking at life .... it give a different insight to understand who I really am. It is fun and very relaxing .... I would recommend it for you to start exploring drawing at your own.


I had also learnt about colors, composition and different medium in drawing. I had met bunch of awesome artist blogger within the community. I am inside there being inspired by all their wonderful works. Everyday is so beautiful .... looking at how they work on their art, be inspired by their style and colors and basically talking to them and reading their life story. Tell me what more would you want of being inside the social media with all these benefits .... Indeed friendship goes beyond physical meet up! It is the minds that are meeting up ... it is beyond translucent piece of imagination. That is how we are so rich with friends through social media today ... we goes beyond the things tangible. Thank's for all the social media platform for that.


Lastly from this Instagram update post - I even open up my ETSY shop ..... It is not all about money there, it is about LEARNING, EXPERIENCE and INSPIRATION.

cheers all ... thank you for stopping by :)
