Passion + Opportunity= Action
EVERYTHING starts from small step. Passion in dancing leads me taking part in Indonesian dance & music performances that were held in Newcastle. As an active performer and committee, I’m always keen to introduce Indonesian culture and heritage. We have been invited to participate in events held by Northumbria Uni, Newcastle Uni, Northern Gamelans in Gateshead, London Embassy and other cities in United Kingdom. Moreover, we’ve got the chance to host our own event as a part of Culture Challenge Project Come Dine with Me.
I’ve recruited to lead the creative team producing the marketing tools to promote the event, such as: the poster, flyer, ticket and merchandises.The concept is inviting people to take adventure in the journey to taste and feel the uniqueness of Indonesian cuisine,dances and music instruments.
Exploring the uniqueness of Indonesia that are illustrated by the examples of Indonesian cultural elements and traditions, such as: wayang (puppets), Monas (National Monument), Angklung (traditional instruments), etc.

MY FRIEND asked me for a help to design a birthday poster for his girlfriend. She likes traveling, so I made illustration of a train with happy and vibrant colors and put some of her photos as well. A little help that makes people happy =D
GOT an idea to create an unique birthday card to celebrate one of my friend’s born day, Nina. The collection of our memorable photos symbolizes the friendship and togetherness. Happy Birthday Nina, keep inspiring and dreaming!

OCTOBER 4,2011_Deciding to take a small adventure, I participated as a volunteer in Hattie Newman’s new studio. Exploring the route from All Saints to Stoke Newington, I used google map to guide me. Hopefully, I didn’t get lost. The studio is located near Clissold Park which is quite large and peaceful.
Hattie and her crews welcome me with enthusiasm. I love all decorations and creative stuff that is filled the studio. Working in this kind of ambience is my big desire.
A pleasant and lovely studio
They were making the hanging paper installation for a window display in upcoming exhibition. And I was helping fold lots of paper shapes and glue some of them.
Hundreds of craft materials
Unfortunately, I just spent several hours with them. Wish I were extended my stay in London. Nevertheless, I enjoyed my experience there. And wish a good luck for their exhibition!!
