So few days ago I went to my first ever art exhibition at Taman Budaya Yogyakarta. I think it's an annual event. Nevertheless, it was my first. I went with some of my college friends from the art group. People may see me as an art slave. But I don't really find myself loving the idea of visiting an art exhibition. I don't know, I'm supposed to enjoy it. But I got bored easily looking over things I don't understand being displayed there. I know, art isn't supposed to be understood, it demands to be enjoyed. Or maybe the theme doesn't fit my liking? It was psychedelic. Oh well, I still managed to capture some photos that might blow your mind away (or not). Enjoy!
Please introduce, my travelling partners. They are my seniors at campus. The very left man, Lukas, he's from batch 2011. He's the former chairman of my art group. Lukas is really good in photography and motivating, he says. You should totally check out his Instagram and see his photoworks! Next to him is Cynthia, his girlfriend from batch 2013. She's the main reason why I finally got into this art group. She was my mentor during the orientation days at faculty of law and when I saw her performing rantjak at the closing ceremony, I decided to apply for the art group. She's such a random person and funny. But weird... Next, my ex-head of department, Emyr. He's from batch 2011. And to tell you the truth, he's one of the few people in the art group that has been very supportive to me (and everyone else). He's also a really amazing guitar player. I force you to check out his Soundcloud. Now.
She was the one who suggested me on posing like a monk
So if you're a really close friend of mine, you'll know the reason why I write down my wish like this. I was going to write all of my upcoming plans, but then what's the point of writing them down if I can't live long enough to make them all come true. I have been diagnosed with a very bad disease which I can't tell the details. But one thing I know is that the disease decreases my age, day by day. It's still a temporary diagnose. But sometimes I stay late at night crying myself to sleep just thinking about it :") That's why, my dear friends, to always cherish every moment in your life. And yes, I mean it. You never know your time, neither do I. But always make the best of you every single day.

It was so much fun indeed! If you guys are in Jogja, you might wanna check Art|Jog|8 as well. It's opened until 28 June 2015. The entrance fee is IDR 50k. Pretty expensive, I know. But if you're a student and you bring your student card, you can get 50% discount! And you can use the ticket afterwards for another art exhibition held at PKKH UGM for free just by showing your Art|Jog|8's ticket :) Don't forget to bring your camera because there will be cool stuffs being displayed here that will blow your mind. I regret I didn't bring my DSLR with me :( Yes, all the photos above are taken using my phone and edited through VSCO so mind the quality!
'Till then, have a nice weekend and happy Ramadhan! xo
