i was inspired to post some pictures from my last "adbentyur" in Indonesia way back in June. we went to Yogyakarta (pronounced: Jogjakarta) and visited the largest Buddhist temple in Borobudur. i have already posted my best picture in this entry . this is on the other side of the temple. inside those huge bells are buddhas which can be touched. it was a sight to behold at the temple though be prepared to climb up at least a hundred steps to reach the top.
it was a really a nice experience going there and checking the whole temple as there are stone sculptures by the wall which tells the story of the temple (too bad we weren't really listening to the tour guide). it was a sight to behold at sunrise. i've seen a couple of photographers who arrived very early to set up. and i thought we were early at 5:30 there!
if you'd like to find out more about Borobudur you can check here. i'm not much of a good story teller by the way! :D

"stealing 50 cars in one night, is that really possible?" i should've seen the movie when it was shown in the big screen eight years ago, i would've really enjoyed it. but then, i was torn between x-men and this one and i chose the former (it's x-men! duh!). although, what was i thinking that i have missed a number of years before finally remembering to watch the movie? though it made me appreciate it more now. i love Memphis and Eleanor's moments!
well, the reason is quite obvious why i appreciate the movie now. no, i don't know how to drive and yes, i own those cars in the above picture. it's around two-thirds of my entire "collection". the movie made me miss them a lot since they're home and i am not :'( but i'd be seeing them really soon and i am keeping a mental note of taking a picture of all of them. the movie gave me an idea though. it would be easier to remember the car if you name it right? so, i'm thinking of naming them one by one. and that will be really fun! name suggestions are welcome! :D

this was months old photo. we had our coffee at a cafe in Jakarta. if i remember it right, this is a frap topped with different kinds of nuts. the area was quite dark and if i am not using the flash, the picture is too yellowish and noisy too. so what i did was to cover the flash with the folded napkin (i've read about that kind of technique from flickr). i have forgotten about the picture until i opened the folder again. i did some playing again, i tried the 'orton' effect but i don't think it was a succesful attempt. nevertheless, i'm still satisfied with the result! :D this frap is really a yummy one!

it was a very busy week for me so i never had the chance to take photos of the sky. although to be honest, i was quite lazy to do so as well. this was the last sunset photo that i had upon leaving Jakarta last June taken from the balcony of our 19th floor apartment. it was taken the same day i had with the blue moon. other sky photos are found here. Have a lovely weekend everyone!
