So they change the algorithm again? So now engagement is becoming more important? Real comments beyond monosyllable niceties like “cool” or “terbaique” are the new standard. Your interactions within first 60 mins after posting will determine how well the content end up in 24 hours.

Oh well. Not that I don’t see it coming. They bought @instagram for a $1 Billion, well Zuck gotta make his investment back (and multiple times of it), doesn’t he? 
_
Sit back, relax. Munch on this delicious pancake at @hours.jkt and worry less. Keep making good content. Keep being real. And don’t put all your bet on one platform. You’ll be alright. After all #itsjustinstagram #keepitfun 🤪🖖🏻

Use the platform for whatever you want it to be. A place to make a living. Kudos for you. A place to fake a living. Well, good luck for you too. A place to shame on people making a living from the platform. Go ahead, karma yourself. This virtual pie is so big for everyone to snack from. Take it as much or as little as you want. At the end of the day, to each his own, right? #nodrama #keepitfun #itsjustinstagram

Little things make all the difference indeed! True in coffee, true in phone case. I’ve tried 4 different cases in 1.5 year that I’m using this phone. Even the most expensive with leather and all the mumbo jumbos broke easily within 3-4 months. This one from @unicase_store though is looking very solid and easy on the grip. Not too thick so that it’s easy in the pocket too. If you’re wondering the brand is @ringke_case 🤘🏻😉

Last few cups of twenty seventeen and probably my 300+ cups over the year. So many new F&Bs opened up and just as much closed down. Interesting year indeed, especially looking at the quick result of my little survey to roundup the year. Head to my Stories, take a look, or even better, participate and looking forward to hear your thoughts.

A good brand goes a long way. From apparel to food! Started by the sneaker designer, Ronnie Fieg in 2010, KITH has grown from a retail space for streetwear, footwear to finally ... guess what? An ICE CREAM STORE! I kid you not. And people are willing to pay premium price for the brand in Brooklyn, Miami & Shibuya. 
_
Am not a big fan of the brand myself, though I look up to Ronnie, and it is always a good reminder that when you build a brand, build it with the dream that one day it can cross different market segment. From apparel to food. A shout out to @sunnyfatday who probably one of the few that I see has been that visionary, while on the reverse. From food to apparel. 
_
Kudos! And that wraps up another segment of #captainrubytips — Any thoughts? Drop em in the comment below.

Hope everyone’s doing well. I’ve been really busy with Wanderbites.com new site design and packing work before holiday. Can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I last posted haha. Cheers!

There is always time for you, a good book and your own thoughts, on a rainy days, having a little bit of ice cream, cold but also somewhat relaxing. Currently reading : Michael Bierut’s How To.

Sipping a cup of joe is beyond taste for me. I count an average number of visitors, what they order, how long they stay, how they enjoy the place, what kind of customers are they. Who designed it? Why is it designed that way? How much is the rent? Who’s behind the success? Having a separate perspective is always useful for the entrepreneur in me. In my case, after the food / product, I look the business side of it. Not for anything, am just channeling Sherlock. Gotta keep the mind well exercised. What do you look for beyond that cup of joe?
_
Here, is a great example of well thought of design, branding, architecture, good product and right partners, each at their respective field contributing a specific role. 🤘🏻❤️

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!

(2) Congrats to another well crafted Jakarta Coffee ☕️ Manual (@manualjakarta). Laopan lu co e mui kia sih jamin ho se @hadi.ismanto 🤘🏻🤘🏻🤘🏻

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?

Is that really a line on my forehead? Damn, age don’t lie. 😅 Am old but nothing SK-II can’t fix 😜.

It was in 2008 that I first listened to Beautiful Saviour by @planetshakers and today, almost a decade it still bring a smile to my face. Was listening while looking forward to the concert at @indonesiagospelfestival next month. Secured my presale tix at just 250K. Who’s got it too?

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!
