Waiting to board the aircraft in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan for our spring holiday, I captured the silhouette of my father-in-law, my husband and our 2 sons. Three generations in 1 shot. Very happy with the result.

It was raining when we visited the Freilichtmuseum in Oberammergau. I was inside one of the houses, part of the museum display, when I noticed my son was standing outside looking in, with his current favourite body posture, imitating a meerkat.

I always adore this type of window / door. It’s a little bit tedious to clean, but I wouldn’t mind.
Nowadays I noticed a lot of restaurants in Jakarta are using all these old components to decorate their establishments. With various colors and sizes, either hanging on the wall or from the ceiling, these windows / doors certainly cheers the atmosphere up.

My climbing all the way to 18th (or was it 19th?) floor , about 60m above sea level, was rewarded with magnificent view of Lengkuas island’s shores.
On the picture above, you are able to see the panels of the wall which was casted in England, and then shipped to Indonesia, to be assembled by the Dutch in 1882. Each panel was numbered and then bolted together.

Having used to live in free standing house, up to this point the kids are still fascinated to look out from the locked doors. They are still mesmerized by the view, particularly at night, as this is the first time for them to live on such a high floor in a high rise building.
I quickly took this shot just now, as I just love the natural light and the sheer curtain accentuating his silhouette when he’s standing there, absorbed in the view.

This is my last photo of the home we have lived in for about a year. It has happened numerous time, but packing and leaving home have never been easy for me. Not the physical part, as we always have the professionals doing the job, but more the sentimental effect on me.
In each relocation which we have done, as I supervise and watch the workers packing our furnitures, our belongings, the funny feeling always starts to creep in. And as they have done the packing on the 2nd or 3rd day, and start carrying hundreds of boxes into the truck, I can’t help that sadness inside.
Then, as efficient as when they arrived, the container truck and all workers are gone transporting your goods to the warehouse. All of the sudden the home is no longer a home. It’s just a house. An empty shell.
It is now the time that I start walking from room to room, standing in the middle of each room, looking around to all corners, reminiscing, recollecting, replaying events which happened in those room. Then I literally say goodbye to each individual room, while keeping the memories inside me.

This abstract photo is actually reflection of the water in the pool, projected onto the ceiling through the wooden window jaluzzi, which happens every late afternoon. I find it interesting to watch the animated lines moving tirelessly. But once you take a snap of it, it reminds me of barcode, thus the title.
