My distant uncle David and aunt Indri are very close with my parents despite the fact that they've been living in Bali for a long time already. Turns out that keeping in touch is not what they're only good at, but they also manage three of the well known furniture stores on this island of wonders.

While they call it furniture, I call it functional artworks. They recycled driftwoods and oil drums and turned them into furnitures that match the Western and Japanese interior tastebuds. Their works furnished not only the inside of people's houses, but also outside; they turned out to be one of the window panes distributor for Potato Head Bali's exterior.

the ipanema ballad.

About a month ago after a photo shoot, Talita from Lasalle Jakarta approached me via e-mail and asked about taking pictures for her Trend Analysis class' final project. The theme given by her teacher was the song "The Boy from Ipanema" and they wanted to do a melancholic interpretation of it -- since the story of the song itself is already heartbreaking. After a few e-mails I OK-ed and the results, well, as you can see (and savor) below.

It was a very nice holiday job even though it was only for two days. All of the members of the team were able to gain a mind-blowing experience of working in such a beautiful space, surrounded by the ocean, salty wind, and a whole lot of stories. Yes, stories of their life, interests in fashion, and of course, ideas and directions for the shoot!

A great way to end my summer jobs this year.
Thanks to everyone in the team!
