FINALLY! Yap, it's been a week that SRS Blog used its own domain, you can visit SRS BLOG by typing from now on :D I also made the new templates for this blog in order to make it look fresher and neat in a simple way though I am really sorry for saying this now, I've been so busy lately, I slept earlier, well that kind of some of good news from me but I also have bad news for you guys, if you've been following my Twitter you'll know that I have acute gastritis and diarrhea since yesterday :( Hope I could recover soon. Being unhealthy is unhappy :(
I had originally started my TUMBLR before I started this blog like I talked before. When I first started blogging, I really had no idea how to edit my photos even to edit the new templates for this blog. At the time, I started learning to use the Adobe Photoshop, I started how to take good photos, I started to using phone’s application related to photography, I started to decide which filters that suit my photos well. The point of this blog, it was all new to me. After trial & error, I eventually found my way around those tricks & applications, I even got to train my eye to see what colour palette I liked to distinguish my style. And now, I started to filming because I’ve been inspired by Michelle Phan, Irene Kim, Jenn Im, Wengie and Naomi Neo. I decided to create UP CLOSE to share inspiring things around me even though my videos on my Youtube channel still lame and not interesting at all, I am still learning now to make a good video. Learning to do these things might be completely challenging, but after I learn it, I found a new skill that can be marketable. Because of this, I’ve believed that we should always try to better ourselves and stay ahead of the market by learning as much as you can. So, please always support me my gorgeous readers <3

Yes I am a huge fan of The Return of Superman, a South Korean reality-variety show that airs on KBS2 about Celebrity dads are left to care for their kids alone for 48 hours without the help of anyone, while their wives leave the home to enjoy some relaxing time off. During that 48 hours the dads and children are either doing a task the wives have written out for the dads to complete or the dads exploring new activities with their kids. My favourite kids from the show are Choo Sa-rang and the Song Triplets; Man-se, Min-guk & Dae-han. Those kids are so lovely, funny and smart, I want to have kids like them in the future LOL.

So, the moment I uploaded these photos (which are taken 2 months ago when I had holiday at my hometown, Balikpapan) I suddenly realised that my hair looked like Sarang’s hairstyle here, how do you think gorgeous?
BONUS : candid shot taken by Rika Carolina.
I can't stand seeing people threw away trash at the beach, just like what you see in this photo, one cup of tiny mineral water could bring big disaster in the future if people start to do the same thing (throwing trash out of place), so people please take care of our nature.
P.S Right after this photo taken, I grabbed the trash and putted it into trash can near the beach.

Popularity is not everything! The truth it can actually be stressful, just ask your famous friends or relatives. Some of people I've known saying that I have this blog for purpose, for seeking popularity. Well, I remember starting my first blog because everyone had a Tumblr, I had Tumblr too but I wasn't putting too much works there. At first, I made a blog because I love writing and story telling, I love explaining what's in my head into writing, then I saw Andy Tores' blog "Style Scrapbook" and been reading her blog since 2009, the next two years in 2011, I started my style blog but it didn't last long due to the fact that it wasn't mainly my passion yet, then time passes. Keeping a blog is a bit tough but now I do it because I want to and I love to. Your passion isn't always determined by how much attention you get from it but it should be how you execute it and everything will follow. You might be wondering why I talked about how I love blogging recently? I did because it's my thing. It's what makes me happy and It's what makes me confident and through this blog I could talk about things I want to share to people, I use this blog to reach out to people :)
By the way, I really want to take shoot at this KONI tennis court every time I run at KONI track, and that day I was very relieved finding out this tennis court was empty, so I could do the shoot without the keeper and the players staring at me, LOL,
