Taking Time, Slowing Down. A Short Exploration at Karawaci.

Can a city life be ever more dull than this?

Lately, I’ve been seeing friends who are in dire need of holiday. I truly understand their need, I mean, look at me. I travel often, yet the city life drains everything out of me every time I’m back in Jakarta.

Just a few days after I came back from Papandayan, I was already catching deadlines, paying bills and attending meetings. Then, I found myself on a tiring Saturday, wanting to escape from Jakarta to a calm neighborhood like… Karawaci! A few turns here and there, HG and I found ourselves here!

Luckily, I always have my penny with me.

HG’s OOTD and matching socks.

That day, we were wearing Hawkeye‘s apparels. As they were releasing their latest “PUNCHER” series, we took great pleasure in collaborating with them to promote these cool t-shirts and jacket.

I was wearing a white cap that I bought from church, Hawkeye’s hoodie, blue short jeans and a red puma kicks. HG was wearing his suede blue Adidas kicks, striped socks from Topman, a Hawkeye t-shirt, a varsity jacket from Pull & Bear, grey snapback from H&M and a pair of Lennon shades.

Taking on this downhill road.

After a while of enjoying riding penny and taking photos at the golden hour, I was bored. A little exploration here and there accidentally got us on the side of the toll road. Yes you read it correctly. We didn’t do anything dangerous and life risking, but we definitely took some good photos.

Sometimes you don’t need a weapon. You need to become one.

It was a nice and interesting discovery. Since I had another busy day on the next day, we quickly ended the day with a quick visit to McDonalds. I ended up getting back home really late, but the fried chicken was worth it.

When you are that tired and stressed out, it is important to be lenient to yourself. Being a fighter is important, but every great fighters know the right time to rest and retire. Look at Kobe Bryant!

Anyways, I will be posting photos about Japan soon! Wait for it.
