Borobudor – Magelang, Indonesia

3 Jul

Borobudur. The Ancient Beauty of Java.

I woke up early, set-up my stuff and went straight to the bus stop. My itinerary for that day was Borobudur in the morning and Prambanan in the afternoon. They are in different directions though but as per some blogs, it could be done in one day on DIY. Borobudur shouldn’t be missed when you are in Yogyakarta or even when you are in Java. Well, I think, people came to Yogyakarta mainly because of Borobudur and Prambanan.

Borobudur is a Buddhist temple and is located in Magelang, 50km away from Malioboro. It is one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world. It has a pyramidal base to support the superimposing ten terraces. Each terrace has perfectly molded bell-shaped small stupas harmonious scattered from each other. This amazing structure obviously displays the outstanding Indonesian art from between the early 8th and late 9th centuries.

From Malioboro, I took the line 3A of Trans Jogja and alighted at PKU Muhammadiyah stop to transfer to other line. Please note not to get out of the station to avoid to buy the ticket again. I transferred to line 2B and alighted in Jombor station. By the way, I bought an Indonesian sim and got 3G so I couldn’t be lost. Sometimes, I am so lazy asking for directions. In Jombor, I took a bus to Borobudur. When arriving in Borobudur, a lot of touts will offer for a ride to the compound. The temple is still around 1 km away. I decided to walk.

The moment I was in front of the compound, I remembered some blogs saying it’s difficult to find out the entrance. Yes, it is true. It is a big compound so it will be tiring to get lost, Make sure to follow the signage. I actually entered at the vehicle entrance. In front of souvenir stores, there is a signage pointing to the entrance where to pay the entrance fee. Wait. There’s still another trick. That entrance is for locals (Indonesians) only. For foreigners, there is a separate entrance and of course of more expensive. Locals need to pay only Rp 30,000 while foreigners need to pay Rp 200,000. For foreigners’ entrance, there is a chilling area with free drinks (coffee, tea, water). They put the sarong to my waist. I just got the free mineral water and went directly to the temple. I was that excited.

And here I was. The temple is amazing. I was awed by its beauty. I started to explore the fantastic structure. Climbed. Walked. Posed. Shutter-clicked.

Bali, Indonesia

“It’s been a few months, since I started taking pictures of my feet again. A lot of people didn’t know, but my legs have been plagued with heat rashes. Terrible ones that wouldn’t go away. That was also why I starting wearing jeans and leggings. But they’ve kinda gone away, and now I’m only left with scars, and I am happy. I’m learning to embrace those scars and pictures of my legs again.”

West Java, Indonesia

19 Feb

For the past six months, I’d tried largely in vain to get the adults and teenagers at my school to throw with their left foot first, point their toes, point the left elbow, and throw from behind their head – not shot-put it.

But these kids had it all down perfect. We didn’t need to explain a thing (other than what the stitches were for).

Matt was the one who realized why: They were impersonating us.

I’ll admit, I got goosebumps. Watching it all click so quickly, each throw and catch markedly better than the previous. I got excited and look at Matt, “Wanna try some routes?”

Matt demonstrated a curl route. The boys did it.

Matt demonstrated an out route. The boys did it.

Matt demonstrated a corner route. The boys did it.

Matt then demonstrated cornerback play. The boys did it.

Sure we had to adapt some terminology along the way; Receiver became “Striker”, and touchdowns became “Goals”, but the kids got it.

Soon, we moved our game to the concrete court and started having them plan and run routes against each other. These kids were tracing imaginary lines on the ball before the snap to indicate what route they’d run. After each play, they’d rotate positions, trying new roles and combinations.

Bali, Indonesia and Thailand

15 Feb

Just before I left Bali, I shot some sound healing videos with Sun King Wallaki and Light Enchantress Radha Divine. Here are some great pics from the shoots.

Time stood still for me out there with no internet or phone signal I was forced into presence- such a present to become more in tune with the sounds of nature from gibbons to hornbills and spending hours swimming in the deep fresh water and attempting some balancing postures or floating on a massive log in the middle of the lake.

Every afternoon involved several hours of intensive ashtanga practise as well as pranayama breathing techniques and satsang- open dialogue about anything and everything with Danny.

It was a massive learning curve and I immediately started to feel physically stronger, which I put down to engaging the mulabandha- contracting the entire core muscles whilst practising yoga and also the pranayama exercises of holding breath and contracting core muscles at the same time muscles. I’ve always loved the truth in the concept that building physical strength also increases mental strength and the same goes with both physical and mental flexibility- changes that take place on a yoga mat affect the mind, body and spirit.

Love is…. the most wonderful fuel for creativity and connection as well as being the most universally understood, appreciated and pure feeling…. and well… it’s just everything really isn’t it? Loving the self, loving others, loving life.

Bali, Indonesia

9 Feb

I have always wanted to live near the coast, have my own private time watching the waves and the sunset whenever I feel like. I didn’t actually look for it. It just happened to be  Bali and IHF and to have the advantage of helping others, and learn so many things from the children while I have my dream come true. Actually both things are dreams came true. We come here to help the children, but I think in the end they are the ones who are helping us. I would like to give them as many great moments as they are giving to me. They are very joyful almost all the time. And when they are not they sniff in such a funny way that it’s impossible not to smile.Some of them act like bossy, some of them are just sly and the oldest ones very caring with the smallest ones.They come from different villages, from different backgrounds and different religions. But they just seem to get on so well and help each others when they don’t understand something. I am having a week of being closer to the kids and getting to know them better. This is all that interests me now. Having them around me.

It is still raining when I walk outside today and somehow this rainy season has bring me into the edge of my heart. The scent of the humid air just reminds me of you. Too much.

I wonder is it okay to have this feeling? just a sad feeling without feeling ungrateful at the same time? I just miss you and no other explanation needed. Simple as it is.

I miss you H

Bali, Indonesia

22 Dec

Of all the places I’ve travelled to and connected with, I must say that Bali was a place I’ve connected with spiritually. Thank you Bali for being so beautiful and allowing me to find inspiration in every corner. Maybe its the magic of this place that led me to meet cool cats who seem so comfortable with who they are, living their dreams and just being their balling hippy selves.  This places made me realise that souls are brought onto this universe without any personality traits or specific labels, but that all souls are connected with the universe with the pure essence of being peaceful, beautiful and full of love.  Bali made me open my heart again, trust the universe even more, and well…  made me believe & see magic everywhere. So thank you Bali, I will be back!

And of course my friends wedding festivities followed by another friends bday festivities were some of the best highlights of this trip. Such good good times! It was chill, it was cray, it was amazing! I didn’t have that many chances to take pics but above are some snaps  :)
