Some thoughts on Travel

Gazing at beautiful landscapes, exotic temples, quirky cities, peaceful mountains; from postcards, posters, or your desktop at work. You wish you were there. You save up, take time off work, get on a plane (or whatever mode of transport) and go. “Then you realize. You’ve brought along a terrible companion. Yourself. All the anxiety. Stresses….

EcoArtist – Richard Box

Richard Box <http://www.richardbox.co.uk/introduction.html&gt; Our physics lecturer introduced us to the artist Richard Box when he showed us a picture of these fluorescent lights powered by the electromagnetic field between the cables above and the ground. I am not explain it as well as my lecturer, but the details about the potential difference, electrons, excitement of…

Melbourne Brunch – Matcha Mylk Bar

View this post on Instagram #matchamylkbar #抹茶 A post shared by oskar (@oskar_the_bicycle) on Jun 16, 2016 at 3:06pm PDT We checked out the newest vegan joint in Melbourne last weekend, Matcha Mylk Bar. After much hype about their vegan eggs, and a wait time of at least 20 – 30 minutes for a table…

Circle of Five

How important is it to surround oneself with the right people? I guess more intelligent people encourage me to pursue knowledge. Inspiring brave souls give me the courage to tackle life’s curve balls. The efficient and diligent motivate me. Individuals who are real and confident to be themselves make me feel comfortable and at ease….

Love

“Everyone just wants to be loved” That is a common thing to hear isn’t it. We believe it. It is the rationale behind all our apparently irrational decisions. I spent the train ride yesterday thinking about this statement and its validity. Let me elaborate with examples from the people around me. XXX looks up to…

Everything for a Reason

Good things take time and patience is a virtue I must learn to cultivate. People will keep questioning me, but I must believe in myself and stop doubting. No one has the answers all figured out. What works for one might not work for another. It is the journey that matters, not simply the end point… I should enjoy my time on this adventure, not by doing nothing, not by doing everything, but doing what feels right at the time.

Dance Clip – Freestyle at FCAC

Jie and I went down to the river and Footscray Community Arts Center to film last Sunday. This is one of the clips. The first one we filmed that night actually. We’re still trying to figure out how to position the camera, and I’m trying to get used to dancing in front of a camera…

Love & the Illusion

Maybe it is biologically hardwired into us humans to search for a partner. Maybe it is an ineffective and misguided way of trying to deal with loneliness. Or the lack of accomplishment, or insecurity, or whatever underlying issue causing unhappiness. We think that if we find a partner who loves us, that love will fix…

Block Party – Windsor Street

Lee, Jie and I met up at Melbourne central before the block party. Jie and I were there getting cupcakes for Tsuji’s birthday. He would spend the day working at Horse Bazaar. We wanted to drop off a box of cupcakes for him at work. Honestly, I had no idea it was his birthday and…

Sydney – Visa Application

In addition to finding a casual job in Melbourne, starting dance again, learning courses online (coding, dutch, etc..), meeting up with friends and family, working on my dance (filming, training, trying to start a class), trying to lose weight, start yoga, and other things… I am also organizing my visa, a place to live, and searching…

Meals Together at Home

I love living with my good friends Bunny and Jie. I love knowing that there will be a comforting face when I come home. Someone to share stories with over tea. To motivate each other to get stuff done, or to help forgive ourselves when we don’t complete everything to our expectations. To be silly…
