For once, I’m actually quite excited that backpack is making a comeback. Backpack is very versatile and practical at the same time, not to mention it’s a good travel bag. Last year backpacks became popular again, courtesy of Coach, Fendi, MCM and Givenchy, to name a few. Now, this isn’t your average backpack that you usually bring to school or when you’re going on a adventure – I’m talking about premium and stylish backpack. I’m usually not a backpack kind of guy, but when I saw designers starting to put effort into creating more appealing backpacks, I became intrigued. Now, bear in mind that these designers backpacks can range from $300-$1,000. Depending on your budget, I would definitely recommend doing some research on the backpack that you interested in. It’s quite a lump sum of money, especially for a backpack.
It feels like I have been away for quite some time now, but the truth is, I have just been taking it easy for awhile and getting some much needed “me time.” It is always nice to kind of put everything on a halt for a second and take a breather–that way you can come back to whatever you were doing with a fresh mind and perspective.
Summer in Canada this year is totally not what I have expected it would be. The heat and the humidity is unbearable and as soon as I leave my place, sweats start to drip down my face. Having been born in Indonesia, you would think that I would be able to tolerate the heat, but no. Compared to Indonesia, the summer here is nothing. In Indonesia, it’s hotter and more humid and at times the temperature could go up to 40°C.
I’ll be the first to admit that every now and then I like some me time, especially in the midst of busy schedules and being sick. A week after my parents left, my body decided to weakened–and as a result, I came down with a cold. It has been a torturous week, but I’m glad to say that I’m all better now.
Sometimes, good things come to those who wait, but the other times, they come in a spur of a moment. Like the latter, this photo shoot was unplanned, however, the photos turned out great and that we had a great time during the shoot. To be honest, this was actually my first time shooting with Gabriel, so I didn’t know what to expect. The first 10 minutes was more of a trial as I was trying to figure out his style and features. Once I figured it out everything was smooth sailing from there on. I told him what I was looking for, in terms of style and pose––by the time we started shooting, he delivered what I asked for. All in all, it was a great shoot and a quick one at that.
