Well. Look at this blog, so empty. I bet if this was a room it’ll be full of dust and... spiders! 6 months had pass by since my latest post of Australia. Today I’ve breathe the Indonesian air, going back home.

Meet my family.

Meet my old friends.

Back to routine.





Well again, things are not as bad as this post. 
Well sometimes it were.



Art and Exhibition

One thing that made me curious about Australia is actually the art exhibition (well, besides barbie and g'day mate accent :p). When I was still in Indonesia, I often read some independent magazine from Aussie such as Frankie, and open some Aussie blogs that I thought it's really witty and artsy. 
So here it is, after an evening walk along the King William Street, I found this Tuxedo Cat, a nice place, and I found an exhibition there!

So this is the exhibition, The Dark Garden by Paul Mcdermott.
Lovely and free.
Events at the Tuxedo Cat.
It reminds me about the free exhibitions in my home city.
Messy me. Ha-ha.

The Cafe Upstairs.
See ya soon!


Adelaide Festivessss~

So, good night lads!
It's 12.08 at night here but I ... just don't feel like sleeping! Haha. And too bad I use this apartment's computer cause I left my laptop on the campus locker (d'oh).
So I just've been through another crazy week here in Adelaide. You know, usually when uni-time started, it's used to be slow at the first time, but nope nope in here we have to doubled our work 'cause student have to really find all the assignment's sources by themselves, yup we could ask our tutors or lectures, but mostly we have to work it by ourselves.
Well, let's just end this uni thing and start sharin pics I like!

This is from my early weeks photos, there is a festival called Adelaide Fringe, in this is
one of the spot, in front of South Australia Museum :D

This is a free comedy show in the Adelaide Fringe!
Besides comedy show and mini theatre, there was also a contemporary dance.
Lovely lighting at Adelaide Fringe King William Street. Superb.
Back on these days, Adelaide City Council just had a program to make Adelaide as a vibrant city, so along the King William Street, they held a 'pop-market'.
Above is the Popcorn stall at the Sunday Night Market.
Below is what inside the stall. Super cute.

Sunday Night Market food stalls in the afternoon! It's full of food  and there was free music!
Sunday Night Market when the sun goes downnnn.
Sunday Night Market.

See ya!



Port Adelaide

So this is our another trip, to Port Adelaide!
Well, there were not much to do there actually. What I saw there are The Market, The Dolphin Cruise, and The Port Adelaide Museum.

Vintage things inside the Market.
Old cams. 
Old books :D
Dolls, Barbies, Vinyls, Music's CDs, and Star Wars-thing everywhere.

View I saw when I get into the Dolphin Cruise, so sad I only could see one dolphin, even it was just its fin. :(
The suburb area, an area of neighborhood outside the city.
Super silent and the shops there closed on the weekend.
And at the weekdays, most of stores and shops in Adelaide closed at 5 :')



There are some trips we went, this is one of them, to the Glenelg Beach!
People here said it's not the most beautiful one, but it is the most accessible one, like from my place, you'll just have to ride in a tram and wait for the last stop that depart on Glenelg :D
Personally I think that beaches in Indo were just like this, even some of them are more beautiful, but here the beach is super clean, and the environment is good, it has been planned.

Entertainment place near Glenelg.
People gets active.

There is port near Glenelg.
Another popular activity here is too cook BBQs and held some picnic with friends.
Through the ocean.

Finally I met the Adelaide Sky

Hello Guys!
Such a hiatus for my blog haha. There're lots of thing I see but there were a limited quotes for the internet (yea, this is sad) so that I can't blog any (upload things will need lots of internet quotes), but today I decided to use this nothing-to-do-time and use this internet quotes wisely for some posts :D
"Good thing will be an ease if it's not shared."
Approximately two weeks ago I flew to Adelaide for an exchange program, and thank God it's a scholarship, cause the prices here in Aussie is super high compared with in Indo! Like, in Indo, you could eat till drop with only 1 dollar (10,000 rupiah) but here, if you bought food in a fast food resto/foodcourt you'll at least need 5 dollar. Luckily I flew here with my buddy, Nabila Afif, so the first good thing is; I got a company for sharing things and groceries :p

Arrive at Saturday and this is the Adelaide's road. No people 'cause this road is in the business area. 
Everybody loves Chinatown.
Cheap foods, Asian foods, Bubble Tea.
Public Transportation Modes here; Tram, Train, Bus, and O-Bahn.
All are accessible to access from the internet (in case you want to find routes, etc)
Lovely murals I found in abandoned places.
Another thing I like is, there are lots of place to hook your bike.
 Here I'm enrolled as an Architecture (Design Studies) student at The Uni Adelaide.
In the first week I join the International Student Orientation there, it's been fun to meet another people from around the world and listen to their different accent.

At the International Student Welcome Center.
Hub Central. The white building is the place where most of the department and buildings connected.

Those are my early days here, still long way to go up to six months later.




2013 is gonna be big for me.
I felt that time has forces me to do something more. 
Make new friends.
Invent some good habits.
I feel happy, yet terrified rite now.
Time is running out but I want to try anything new and good.
with all your bless, God.
help me and I'll try to make it.
my dreams.




Gothenburg, Goteborg, is the second largest city in Sweden, after Stockholm.
First time I arrived there, like, three months ago, from Paris, I'm the only black-haired girl there.
Most of the passengers are blondes.
As cold as scandinavia can be, first time I stepped out the airport, daaamn, super cold.
So cold that the breeze just went through my lungs.
And the native language there was just so.... strange hahaha I never heard any sweddish languange before and dang! I felt like a lost alien there. But luckily, people in Goteburg have a very fluent english. From the bus driver till the shopkeeper, they were all fluent in english. So I have no problems in communicating <3 div="div">

My first destination.
IKEA Backebol.
Been dreaming about this store since .....little! So my parents got bunch of IKEA magz when we lived in Austria when I was just a toddler and its magazines were memorable.
Good, simple, colorful cushions. Lovely.
Good view from the hotel.
A mini square with tram and bus access.
Greatest thing about the transportation there is; it could be accessed online!
The secret so I could arrive safe and sound from my hotel to IKEA was this web >> vassttrafik
I could choose the path to go, with the bus/tram number and with its time.
Super cool!
Random visit to Goteborg station near our hotel.
Same as in France, in Sweden they also use this kind of roof.
To allow sunlight enter the building on a daytime.
Save energy.
Messy me, eating alone at IKEA canteen.
Ha ha ha ha.
View from the canteen.
The canteen has a self-service system.
Drop the dirty cups/plates there and it will flows to the kitchen.
Human resources energy save! Haha
This is the view from Backebol Bus Shelter.
Good thing about policy there;
Big Mart placed outside the city. So the traffic is 'control-able'.
inside IKEA. <3 td="td">

Transparent roof inside the warestore.
Save Energy!
Really. Felt. Nowhere. That Time.
<3 td="td">
all the bike in the main square in front of my hotel.
No wonder the air were just super clean.

So, it's a remarkable experience to go to Sweden, even just to Gothenburg.
All the thing there were just super modern, and clean.
I wonder when my country would be like that; good access in transportation, society-self-consideration of healthy life, high quality of life..


Studio 3, 2nd Project; Following Flow

Been such a long time to not post anything about my college life.
Here is my latest work on studio, my finale work.
So the quest is to make a restaurant.
And on my studio, we got a very interesting challenge from our Lecturer, Mr Jowi, to design a restaurant above a 'gully'. The site does really existed, it is located near our campus, so the thing is we have to go to the real site and do all the measurement, including all the details in the surrounding. Fortunately my studio-mates are all so serious about this project so everything went well and great.
In the end after all the results, our Lecturer looked pretty satisfied with all of our work.
Wish me luck ;p
moi model. The concept is; Following Flow
means that this building will follow the rules of the surroundings.
and the 'rules' are; existence of the trees and existence of the water below the building.
since it means to be built above the gully, it should not damage the watery.
Got details here and there. The thing is, this building is a dynamic, long, shaped one.
With all the different levels on the roof, the guest wouldn't be bored to walk along this long building.
No same level.
Perspective sketch.
Watercolor w pencil.
yes, soft, and comical.
Since the building is super long, I got the bridge connecting the two main buildings.
The left side is for the outdoor one, and the right side is for the indoor one.
So the concept of Following Flow is not only implied in the conceptual sight, but it's also applied on the experience
of the guest, walking along the outdoor area, which is a bright zone, and flowing to the darker side to the indoor area.
Sheet of Site Analysis.
this is how I found the theory of Following Flow which became a main concept of this project.
To analyse a site is one of the first thing to do in designing a building.
Yap, because as our Lecturers has empasized to us, "Architect is a problem solver."
So, we designing a solution.
Level down in the indoor area. 
The interior perspectives.
Left side is the indoor area, and the right side is the outdoor area.
SideView and its structure (above).
Well, let's just hope that all the sweats, insomnia nights, muscles, and time wouldn't go for a waste.
After all, I really enjoy the process :)
Will be missing all my studio mates; Bella with her 90s songs, Arsy with all his JKT/AKB 48 playlists, Syuhudi with his mellow-jazzy breezy songs, Diki with his top 40 jukebox, Anggi with her coldplay+jmayer albums (xx) and Adri with his funny meme face.

xx xoxo
