Hello People:)

It was such a long time since I had any nap during the day. But today the weather kind of make me feel asleep. I am realise that I have been working really hard since the opening of the shop. Time are so limited nowadays. It was like a break when my turn taking care of the shop, because what is supposed to be two weeks break, before the rotation start again not totally a break.

I am glad that having a constant custom order….and some ad hoc job in between. I try not to take any graphic job nowadays, but there are still some coming in that I hardly resist. Do you know how difficult to say NO whenever people asking for help?

LAPAN will have an extension of two months at Art Row. I thinkPublika was such a wonderful venue and I am ok with the low traffic, and the capacity just nice for me to cope with production etc. I am excited whenever my turn taking care of LAPAN; to be able to talk and meet with many wonderful people. I always strive and make as much as sale to every LAPAN team. I am excited when people ask, if our products are made locally. I am sure there are many local talent around. We just fortunate that we had the courage to take the challenge, to be on our own. Believing in our passion and following own instinct.

Having limited time to blog lately, but I do update my facebook constantly. Thanks to instagram app:) I do not need to edit and upload pictures anymore. Suit for someone that always on the move like me.

But believe me it need lots of hard work too, by juggling so much things in between. Go through error and experimenting. I supposed I was designed to be strong, committed and never give up. When reaching this age, risk is just a challenge, turning back is not an answer, when every difficult ride and adrenaline rush will only make me even stronger.
