It’s a laid-back Tuesday

I don’t often get the chance to go and casually hang out at cafes but when I do, it’s at Giraffe Cafe. Hidden in the narrowness of Little Lonsdale (and next to an ugly, noisy construction site) Giraffe Cafe was the perfect place to stop by and catch up with a friend who I haven’t seen in a very long time. I love the place! It’s cosy and cute, very cute! Walls embellished with polaroids, antiques and photo frames and rooms filled with random bits and pieces here and there that make you wonder why they’re there. Yeah, it’s all lovely. One of the reasons, no wait, the only reason why I make occasional trips back to this cafe is because of their simple yet delicious menu with mouthwatering desserts, vegetarian friendly dishes and best of all, their chai latte. THEIR CHAI LATTE. A glass full of goodness that’s perfect for this 3 degree weather…it’s the best. I can’t resist.

A right-brainer by day and occasional blogger by night, you've landed on a place where I document life in the creative field and endless travels with friends and family

Design had evolved naturally, as a passion and a lifestyle beginning at an early age when I made trips back to the motherland, Indonesia, I experienced the surroundings and the lifestyle that was vastly different from what I was used to. I found myself passing by villages where children made their own toys with whatever was left around them; scrap metal, bits of cloth, banana leaves, and even cigarette butts. Despite this, the children were happy and proud with anything they created.

This image struck me and forever inspires me to contribute my skills to places that need it the most. Design helps me make decisions, while art helps me take risks. Both areas reward me with opportunities to create something impactful and everlasting!
