When I tried to make my own cushion cover, i made it with an envelope pattern that didn’t require a zipper because I couldn’t do a neat seam. So when I saw Kemala Home Living’s cushion with their signature zipper, i just thought, “hey, that’s a good idea!”. Instead of hiding the zipper, they just show the zipper on the middle of the cushion cover and incorporated it as a part of the cushion’s design.


The zipper is only on the front side of the cover. So you can safely sleep on the other side of the cushion without being worried about having a zipper marks on your cheeks. We love this chevron patterned cushion cover in white and navy blue. But the cushion cover are also available in other option like floral, stripes, and ikat pattern.

I always love spending an afternoon time at a quiet place where I can relax and enjoy every sip of my favorite drink. And one of the best places I’ve ever been to unwind is Kopi Selasar, Bandung, West Java.

A few weeks ago, I came here once again with my friends from work, Imelda and Dyna. It really was a lovely escape that we barely experience during our daily routine in a busy Jakarta.

Kopi Selasar is located right at the center of Selasar Sunaryo Artspace. Constructed over 4 years by Sunaryo and BaskoroTejdo, Selasar Sunaryo has been open for public since 1998. This artspace consists art galleries, amphitheater, art shop, residence for artists and spaces for exhibitions, performances, discussions and events.

Some people dreamt about living overseas in a big metropolitan city like Paris, New York, Tokyo, or London. But actually, small cities around the world also has a lot of interesting stories. One of them is New Bedford in America. When we first saw the photos of the city through our friend, Chica’s blog, we love the heartwarming atmosphere of the town. Want to take a closer look? Here’s the delightful story of New Bedford according to Chica.

Tell us about you and where you live

Hi! My name is Puti Ceniza, but most families and friends in Indonesia call me Chica. I’m a homemaker with two little boys that keep me busy all day long (they are 4 and 2 y.o). In my spare time, I do volunteer at local national park and communities, I also part of a non-profit organization called Books For Indonesia, and like most of you I enjoyed taking picture, watching gigs and explore interesting places.

Since September 2010, my little family has been living in the US – in the City of New Bedford, Massachusetts (it is about 55 minutes going south from Boston – to give you the idea where-the-hell-is-that :D).


Why you moved to this city?

We moved (not permanently) from Bandung to this small historic city because my husband, Aradea Hakim, got a fellowship from School of Marine Science in UMass Dartmouth to continue his PhD. But his office is not in the main campus (which is located in Dartmouth town – just 15 minutes from New Bedford), but in New Bedford because it’s closer to the sea – given the fact that the city is US no.1 seaport.
