Imagine packing your 7 days of work from 3 different businesses into 4 days to be at your friends wedding in Bali in the weekend, this is what happen. Multitasking, juggling, hustling, every minute counts into productivity, I timetable everything, including meals and snacking. Meticulous scheduling as what people call it. And not just time management, energy management is equally important. There’s no point setting a time for an activity but not having the energy to do it. In my case @lmen Protein Bar is in for the rescue. I can easily squeeze in a bar or two for that extra fuel. Work’s done ✅ and still have energy for everything else.

Oh and yes I work 7 days a week sometimes. That’s life on an entrepreneur on the stage of scaling the business. But guess what? I can do it almost anywhere. Here in Bali now. 😉🤘🏻

Iya, Skytree-nya agak miring. Iya, horizontal perspective-nya juga gak lurus. Iya, awan-nya ada yang gelap. Tapi jangan lupa ada langit biru, Sob.

Hidup ga setiap hari asik / indah, tapi selalu ada yang asik / indah setiap harinya.

If only we want to observe and look at it from a long term perspective, eventually it is for the greater good.

Bisnis yang dicurangi oleh partner lo, itu untuk menghindarkan lo dari kerugian yang lebih besar lagi seandainya lo lanjut. Pacar yang putusin lo tanpa alasan adalah lo sedang dilalukan dari marriage yang gak sehat. I don’t know what you’re going through, but hey, take time to get yourself together and know that the toughest times are there to toughen you up. Lo sebenernya lagi disiapin buat naik kelas.

Ok, am gonna end my blabber here. If you got something good from it lemme know below. Semua kebawelan ini gara gara tergerak sama Ada Langit Biru & It Is Done nya Kak @sidmohede yang gua puterin pagi ini.

Have a good day y’all and and remember, #adalangitbiru ❤️
Dosis kopi 2 cup sehari? Nope. Stranger Things 2? Well, I like the show, but nope. I got two things I wanna say and I’ll be fast.

(1) Am giving away TWO FREE TICKETS to @planetshakers concert at @indonesiagospelfestival in ICE BSD next month. Just simply tag a friend you want to bring with in the comment section below before midnight. Yes, November 20, 23:59. And I’ll pick a winner tomorrow morning!

Some few months back, I discussed the best credit card to collect miles. Everyone chipped in their thoughts, I did my research, and eventually we agreed on either Citi’s Premier Miles or StandChard’s. 
_
Now I’m on it again, but slightly different. This time I’d like to ask if anyone of you know a friend that’s really good at collecting miles from the airline membership / club. Or is there’s a specific strategy to accrue miles over Airline Alliance (Sky Team, OneWorld, Star Alliance)? If you know the person, hook me up. Much appreciated!

Photo taken from my current fav airline for CGK - HND route: @ana.japan — PS: Am not being paid for this, just a happy customer for this route. Thought am not so keen on their United joint flight to US. Speaking of, what’s your favorite airline for 🇯🇵 route and 🇺🇸? #airnipponairways #aviation #upintheair
How liberating it is to free your thoughts from number of likes? To shoot the kind of pictures you want to shoot? To create content that might not the typical ‘eye-pleasing’ template? To actually taste the food while it’s hot before you shoot and totally okay with it?
_
The answer is: very, very liberating. It’s what kept me sane, taking three months off from this acc. And because of that I can take pictures like this. 
_
Here’s another edition of #captainrubytips for you: (1) See the hands and how it wrap the glass nicely? Experiment with different ways in using hands in a shoot. This happens naturally after I asked my friend to loosen her hands and “just do what you feel like doing.” The cup-hugging right hand is an addition to convey warmth without using smoke. (2) Foreground / Background. The saucer in front might be empty, but it made the scene look natural. And a nice progression for the eye to have a hint of the second cup at the bottom right corner. 
_
#FoodPhotography at the end of the day is about RASA, as I mentioned multiple times in my workshop. Tips above is looking at things into the smallest details to convey that rasa. What do you think? Rasanya apa liat foto ini?

Sambil ngopi sambil mikir, ngulik question yang asik buat ditanyaain ke para foodie / influencer papan atas di @jakartaculinaryfeastival minggu depan. Yep, gonna be leading a session there. Bakal buka bukaan sampe telenji deh questionsnya. Biar seru, biar pecah gelasnya, biar gaduh sampai mengaduh. Who’s coming? Anybody got a question to ask? Fire away!

Here’s two fresh ideas: 
_
(1) Don’t open just another coffee shop please. We have enough of that in Jakarta. Yes, coffee must be good, but add something else of value. Like this place, coffee & champagne. Now that made me curious, even though I have no idea if they are any good. Again, the next time you’re thinking of opening one, try completing this sentence: coffee and ... ? I mean seriously, at this point, even coffee and lapchiong sounds better. Or you know what, lets talk. I got tons of coffee shops ideas. From using pure marketing strategy to design and what to pair it with. 
_
(2) Don’t hate shadows when you shoot. I’ve heard on my workshops time and time again people are asking how to minimize shadows. I say befriend shadows instead. Find ways how it can work to add beauty instead. How’s the shadow here? What do you think? Do you like it?

Coming back to Insta to share what I believe in. — I remember my first Planetshakers encounter. It was either 1998 or 1999. Cassette was still a thing. I gotta rewind the song for 30s or so to replay it on my mini boombox. Yet, I do it again and again as the song and the lyrics moved the teenager me. I felt a connection. Or what you would call His presence. Whatever that is. Through a cassette, a track on iTunes, or a concert, life changed through these kind of encounters. For me now its through Spotify on my phone. However, it won't happen though if we don't make a conscious decision to move. The opportunity just opened up. Your call.

Come if you're heavy hearted. Come if you think life has been tough on you. Come, even if you simply need something new. If it's meant to be, the universe will meet you halfway.

Shady's back. Tell a friend.

Three months off from Instagram taught me a lot of things. That I can detach, if I want to. That I could care less about likes and comments. Or endorsements for that matter. Trust me, there's so much relief in writing "I'm sorry, I'm off from Instagram for now." in response to : May I ask your rate card?
_
I learned that doing so is not only good for my mental health, but also my relationship, business, and life in general. But most important of all, is the understanding that I (read: we) have the option to not stay silent and let technology and social media dictates how we run our life. The choice is always ours to make. If only we dare ourselves to do so. It's about time for a change around here. 
_ 
What changes? 
_ 
A lot of things, I can't possibly share them all here. You'll be bored, who reads a caption this long anyway? Well, that's about to change too. I like storytelling and I trust my audience (yes, you who's still reading this line) are smart audience. You enjoy a little brainfood, as well as foodporn and ootds. The way I see it, if I'm going to spend hours gramming, might as well do it way ... or the highway. 
_ 
This is my voice. My attempt on making life online and offline in harmony. I'm choosing the kind of life I want to lead at @captainruby.manifesto. Brands, agencies, friend, please take a look there before sending those email. Meanwhile, hope you embrace @captainruby 2.0 at this account.

Let's make this fun again.
