I’ve been missing from blogging world for few days, I’m sorry!
But now (hopefully) I’m back~ 🙂
I have bunch of assignments that I’ll need to catch up on during weekend
Well, I have never actually tried to take a monochrome photo before, and I’m currently digging my old archive to find if I have “suitable” photos or not.
So, here’s my attempted monochrome photos (I must apologize that I have previously put a watermark in one of them)…
This one, I took when I went to Malang, a town near Surabaya. We were walking through on a theme park and I look up and saw these tree branches and so I took a snap.
This one is taken in Tanah Lot, Bali. Probably one of my most favourite places on earth 🙂
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Monochromatic.”
I hope you enjoy!
Late submission of W101 assignment, which is about getting an inspiration from Social Media.
The tweets suggested were all pretty good, but this one caught my attention the most maybe because I will be coming home in less than 2 weeks[tweet https://twitter.com/duchessgoldblat/status/598281402837110784 ]
I have to submit this assignment late because I honestly need to think through who’s my targeted audience for this blog.
Even after giving it a night sleep I still can’t come up with “proper” targeted audience scope because I really don’t have particular intended audience.
So, my “target audience” is everyone.
Everyone who enjoys my post, everyone who think my post is good enough and worth a read, everyone who can accept my blog and posts the way they are. 🙂
And, I hope you enjoy this song. an oldie but goodie 🙂
If a picture paint a thousand words, then this picture paint a thousand of different stories.
Image of City at Night, the city lights often brings a mellow feeling and a thousand imagination to my mind.
When you’re passing through a busy street or when your flight finally ready to land, and you saw the lights below you, do you also think that each of those light are representing a family? a single person? a couple?
Does the owner of each of those light have a good day?
Are they enjoying dinner with their love one?
Are they still waiting for their love one to come home?
Are they still looking for the one?
Are they happy? Are they sad?
Same when you saw busy street at night, where are these people heading out to?
Are they in a hurry? Are they just wandering around?
Do you think among the people in those lights, there’s anyone out there who look the same sight as you and and thinking exactly what you are thinking?
These kind of thoughts usually appear on my mind when I saw city at night/city light. 🙂
I hope I’m not being creepy..
When I first read the “Sense of Touch” part, the first thing that came into my simple mind is hand..
Hence, this picture exist..
rough hands of mine.
then, the next morning, when I was waiting for our company car to pick me up for work, – I was waiting in a close by store that build a simple rooftop for their customer’s motorcycle to park to – this sight caught my eyes…
so, the photo above complete my initial idea of Sense of touching – which is a net safety vest I have at work
I hope you all enjoy my entry this week!
2. I took a pic of the vest from another angle, and when I playfully edit the tone, it turns out like this. 😀
Ahh I was almost giving up making this post, it was kind of long and tiring day for me in real life but I can’t seem to put my mind on rest knowing I still haven’t post today’s assignment from Writing 101 class.
So, I’ll make a quick post regarding the one word prompt. Given all the choices sent, I feel that Secret was the most fascinating word of them all.
Everyone has a secret, or 10.
I have a secret, you have a secret, I’m sure even my parents both have a secret they don’t even tell each other.
I think most of my ‘secrets’ are made to be secret because I feel like they will make me vulnerable. It can do damage to the sensitive insecure part of me. And I don’t want pity from other people nor do I want people to think I’m weirder than I am now.
But I can accept those secret as part of me, special part of me that is just for me. My own space in myself.
Was this that make secrets so special?
That some people going out their way to protect their secret?
Because it’s like the most basicest out of basic right to have a secret?
What do you think?
Oh, and good night for now! X
Blogging 101 assignment for day 2 is changing the Blog Title and Tagline
I did, when I set up this blog.
I thought choosing the Blog title was the hardest one of the task, but it turns out that the tagline is the hardest.
My blog title, Destination T, is actually influenced by my favourite TVXQ
Our (TVXQ and fans) catch phrase is “We are T”
One of the most famous quote from one of the member is “The TVXQ train, once you get on, you can never get off. But you‘re still going to join us, right??” Yunho said this once on his thank you note for their first album as duo – long story short TVXQ was once a 5-member-ed group but they split and the duo continue to be TVXQ while the other 3 formed a new group. My favourite is the TVXQ duo. There’s a bad blood between fandoms etc etc and I stick with the duo fandom.
We are T, is a catch phrase made after they became a duo, which is in a sense of belonging, belong to the duo and fans.
So, the origin of this blog name is because actually I didn’t know about what would I do with this blog, where this blog is going, but in coincidence with both TVXQ members army enlistment (South Korean men must serve in the army) for 2 years, this feel like me, as a fan, is wandering around during this hiatus. hence the Destination T, because no matter where they go, no matter where I go, which way we go, in the end we will always be T.
It’s probably so lame! hahaa
But I’m trying to keep TVXQ related content minimum in my blog so don’t worry!
Tagline, I find, is harder than the title, for tagline will usually give a glimpse of the content of the blog, while mine, is super random.
That is why for now, I put Fanny Brice’s quote that I found randomly on internet
“Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you?”
For now, I think this quote is so apt with my blog.
Because, however random my posts will be, it will be a reflection of me as I am. 😉
I will probably change the tagline if I have found a good idea of what I want to put there. Didn’t hey say that the only constant thing in this world is a change? 😀
It’s time for Cee’s Share Your World again! Week #36, time flies!
Before I realized, everyone in facebook is already starting to countdown to Christmas! Haha
Okay, so this week questions,
If you were a pen, what type, style and color would you be?
Pen… I’d probably will be a pen called “Standard AE7” with 0.5 tip!
They are my favourite, so comfortable to write and they last long too 😀
Funny thing is, I came from a small town called Magetan and license plat for cars in Magetan is started with AE.
How many languages do you you speak?
I speak fluent Indonesian, Javanese (informal), Suroboyoan (we kind of mix Indonesian, informal Javanese and Surabaya dialect language in Suroboyoan), and English.
I am currently learning Japanese, hopefully I will be fluent in Japanese in the future!
I speak a little Chinese (but to be honest, it’s fading away…..)
I can speak a little Korean (and read some Hangul too, but not fluent)
Javanese language is categorized as 3, informal (which is used in daily lives, sometimes often thought as “rude”), formal (mostly used by older people, younger people nowadays choose to use Indonesian instead) , and polite (which not very often used). When people speak formal Javanese language to me, most of the time I can understand what they are saying, but somehow it is very hard for me to reply in the same language, my mind usually goes blank so I replied using Indonesian instead of I met people who’s talking to me using formal Javanese.
Are you a listener or talker?
I can be both, depend on the situation.
But I can only be a talker comfortably around people I’m close and comfortable with. If I’m surrounded by a lot of strangers or even people I know but not too close, I usually be a listener.
Rather Have: Which would you rather have, 2 million dollars or true love?
Since I haven’t met my true love, I’d love to have true love for now. Maybe then both of us can try to get that 2 million dollars later 😉
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for making my first sales on my newly set-up online store in one of Indonesian famous online market.
I am grateful that my Japanese class went well and even my Japanese exam yesterday went okay, not too bad.
I am grateful that I get to know more people in wordpress.
I am grateful that I get to meet my friends from university for a dinner last Friday, it has been few months since we all gather together. Even 2 of them who are married brings their s/o and children!
For next week, I don’t have anything particular I’m looking forward to. Just gonna enjoy what’s coming up next! 🙂
