Transition of Life

The word transition made me think of the changes that every living things have to go through in life…



“When you are transitioning to a new season of life, the people and situation that no longer fit you will fall away.”

(Mandy Hale)



And in the end…

“And the wordly life is nothing but amusement and diversion, but the home of the Hereafter is best for those who fear Allah, so will you not reason?”

(Qur’an Surah Al-An’am: verse 32)

Have a great day, my dear friends… 🙂


Rose Balsam and The Rule of Thirds

The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center, which usually results in blank space in the rest of the image.

I took these pictures on our daily afternoon walk with my daughter around the neighborhood.

Back when I was a child, I like to play around the neighborhood, looking for unique and playable things such as rocks, and plants of any kind. Thank God, I never got the poisonous ones.

This plant below is called Impatiens balsamina or rose balsam or garden balsam.

It’s a plant common in southern Asia, like Jakarta, Indonesia, my home city.


What’s unique about this plant is that the ripe seeds capsules can go pop! with just a little poke.. I never knew what this process called until I read the wikipedia, this seeding process is called explosive dehiscence..


It comes in many colors… The ones grown in my neighborhood area are pink and white… Pretty flowers, I always took the ripe seeds capsules for play with my daughter, and eventually plant them in our garden…
