mikaelaldo A really neat painting done by @boshraalodah inspired by one of my photos. A good reminder to anybody not to stop creating. You wouldn't know how your work could inspire! 1w

mikaelaldo What you're from. "You were hurt badly, and those scars will be with you forever. I feel sorry for you. I really do. But think of it like this: it's not too late to recover. You're young, you're tough. You're adaptable. You can patch up your wounds, lift up your head, and move on. But for her that's not an option." - Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore.

Dedicated to the woman who gave birth to me. The one who returned to the sea of souls five years ago today.

mikaelaldo "Pause"

This was taken last June, when I had the idea to recreate one image from my 366 series. I had my two best friends who were willing to put flour all over their bodies, and went outside almost completely naked into a freezing weather.

mikaelaldo "The guidance"

Another continuation of "One Day." Feeling remorse of what he's done, he heard a faint voice coming from the deadwoods. It was the voice of the wise, and its words echoed, guided the lost, forgotten man.

mikaelaldo I guess I'm better late than never. So here goes #20factsaboutme

1. Jakarta born, Bekasi bred person. Had an amazing childhood, and still have a great life.

2. Survived lots of head bumps as a kid. One of them was when I got pushed into a ditch by @natashasinsoe and my head bled.
3. Also once made instant noodle above a candle lit because neither me nor my brother could turn the stove on back then. There was nobody home but us.

4. I fell in love with photography when I was 14, and my heart still falls for it.
5. I have 4 really good friends, a.k.a the willing models. Our souls met even before my body was born.

6. Read a lot of self-help books, some biographies, also Murakami. Listening to the sound of the rain while reading any of them makes me very happy.

7. I must eat every 2 hours, otherwise I'll end up looking as skinny as Christian Bale in "The Machinist." 9. Been having eczema that can be really bad sometimes.

10. Woods, cabins, and mountains are my second home. They are basically my source of serenity.

11. I think I look like my mother a lot.

12. I play piano sometimes, and perform my solo performances when no one's home.

13. I believe that memories, no matter what kind, are the source of living.
14. Fave number!

15. I've climbed two highest mountains in Indonesia, and those were great memories I'd never forget.

16. I'd never consider anything impossible.

17. I have some life goals and one of them includes living in a treehouse.
18. I always try to start a day with a big heart, and end it with as well.

19. I think about death a lot. Whoever's it is. Bcos the more I think about it, the more I think about life and how I should live it.

20. Oh, this photo? A picture of me standing against my window.

mikaelaldo Inhale, exhale.

Climbed Mt. Rinjani (3726 masl), the 2nd highest volcano in Indonesia. Left my heart on one of mother earth's greatest creation, and watched Lombok from above the clouds.
