Image taken by: Adeline Wibowo Many of us dread that word; “exercise”, yet we want that proportionate hot bodies of those celebrities or models we’ve always seen on television. We reason with ourselves that there are other things that take more priority in our life. “I do not have the time.” “I am too busy with work.” “I am already too tired.” We become too comfortable with our excuses that we do not even have that spare hour to fit in that quick 45 minutes…Continue Reading “FIVE ULTIMATE KEYS TO MOTIVATE YOU TO EXERCISE”
Having moved cities a total of four times throughout my years, one thing I find is that it gets a little harder each time. Moving somewhere new seems effortless when one was way younger (especially as a four-year-old who just had to follow wherever her parents went), had less emotional baggage, and zero adult responsibilities. Last year I made a move to a new city and here are my takes, my three cents or three points to survive those exciting times. 1. The adulting part I…Continue Reading “Three cents on moving somewhere new”
Hello, Welcome to Canvas Confessions v2.0. New look, new content, new commitment! We recently realised that this blog has been very abandoned for a while, left in the dust of it’s past glorious days, and it makes us a little sad of the potential of what it could be, if only we were a little more disciplined.

Putting aside all other awesome reasons why I love travelling, one fascinating reason why I love stepping my feet on a new city is its colour vibe. I don’t know about you but every time I’m breathing that new air, seeing its new lights, embracing the foreign weather and eating its street delicacies, it gives me their own unique colour vibe.

Anyhow, I…Continue Reading “5 Cities I Recently Visited and Their Colour Vibes”
Located in the less popular road of Nusa Dua; Jalan Siligita; Secret Cafe sure is one of the best of Nusa Dua secrets. Owned by a friendly and humble lady, Indra, the cafe’s interior speaks loudly of her passion in surfing and painting, perfected by her choice of soft reggae music playing at the background. It was only 9am on a Friday, but this cafe already has its chairs full with regulars, who are mostly non-locals. It is very unusual for me to opt for a sweet breakfast, especially early in…Continue Reading “The Secret Cafe of Nusa Dua Bali”
My usual morning started off with a long drive to work. There is usually no time to muck around at home, no coffees, no hot breakfast, it is straight out with my favourite radio hosts on air – on the road. What was different this morning, I decided to turned my hilarious KissFM to the dry repetitive yet important AM news. and what do you know – this morning, for a very particular reason, or so, I believe, there were no other news bigger than the hypothesised…Continue Reading “One Thing Planet Nine Reminds Me Of”
