Smileprints 2018

leave a comment »

2018 by my definition was a crazy year. I think I will find a lot who would think alike. Take the craziness out for a while and let me share with you places that I visited during the year.

Beginning of last year, I visited Iceland with my friend Epri, my fail attempt to see The Northern Lights. Should I nominate this to be the first disappointment in 2018? Maybe. But I rolled like the rich Asians, bathing in the Blue Lagoon, putting mud mask, just because. Though my balance sheet at the end of the year indicated that January was the month where I had minus. Ouchie. 💸

Subway

Coming from Indonesia and living in Denmark, I dont have the previlige to enjoy subway sandwiches. Therefore everytime I travel, aside from trying local cuisine, I always try to stop by to enjoy one or two 30-cm subway sandwiches.

ARKEN

leave a comment »


It was a cloudy Saturday. I decided to go to Arken Museum of Modern Art in Ishøj. I was really expecting to see The Danish Girl collection there. But apparently, at that time, the museum was having a special “Gosh! Is it Alive” exhibition. I was a bit disappointed because I was really curious on Gerda Wegener’s paintings. But, alas, what could I do but to enjoy the exhibition.

Milan, Italy

It was just a weekend trip to Milan, but it was really nice. They said you’ll meet yourself when you travel. I have to add:  you’ll meet yourself when you travel, alone.

First thing on my walking route was Bosco Verticale. It was just an apartment building which grew big plants to make it look like forest. A very refreshing sight in a modern city.

Paint your faith

leave a comment »

My trip Milan landed me to a small yet beautiful church called Chiesa di San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore, located at Corso Magenta 15. It was on number #1 of my to do list in Milan. But I went there the second day. I am so thankful, I made the time to go there. The small church was filled with paintings of faith.


Some of my favourites were the beheaded of Paul, the first sin, and Noah. I also took a replica of the last supper since I couldnot get the ticket to see the original painting.

Shopping in Milan, Italy

If money could buy happiness, I bet Milan is the best place to go. 😉 ❤

Before I flew to Milan, I followed the unwritten rules to contact all my italian friends to “hand-wave” them that I am going there. Interestingly, both said they had never spent time in Milan to be able to give any recommendation for me. In fact, one of them actually said that I wont like the city, that it’s different than any other city in Italy, so.. and so… Made me even more curious.
