Please tell I am not the only one who owns a Uke and does not know how to play. 🤔
I laze around it everyday hoping one day I would magically start playing it. But dedication ke liye 10/10 haan. I strum the chords everyday in evening trying to produce noise that sounds like music. 💂♀️🚫 All the uke owners, make some 🎵🎵 in the comments.
Things that are truly beautiful and good have a way of beautifying and uplifting its surroundings, creating an environment that is good for everyone. Strive to be the person that enriches everything around you. Like cherry blossoms, they aren't just pretty trees but everywhere they fall becomes beautiful as well. 🌸🇳🇵
Amazing to see an entire museum dedicated to building awareness about the damage caused by the 2015 earthquake. The movement of rebuilding within the rubble really shows as you walk through the streets of Kathmandu. It's very inspiring to have witnessed the strength and resilience of Nepalese people. 🇳🇵
Hi! As you know I'm into traveling, I like outdoors activities and make new friends in every city I went into, in whichever part of the world I was. I share my travels in this platform as my way to encourage people to go out there and explore to expand your horizon. But traveling at this time is obviously not a good idea infact everyone is discouraged to go for the right reason: to slowdown the spread of coronavirus.
I pushed through with my trip last month thinking that my destinations aren't highrisks places and no travel bans were in placed. Also, the situation wasn't as bad as it is when I went back. I have to admit that I underestimated this outbreak just like many of you at the beginning. A what we thought a simple virus from a seafood market easily spread out to the rest of the world quickly which is very alarming. I remember sitting at the airport for my flight to MNL, keeping my eyes on the departure board where 90% of the flights were cancelled, but glad mine was not. I made it home safe and healthy which I'm grateful for.
As of today, many countries already closed their boarders. But despite of our terrible status, there are still people who aren't taking this seriously and not participating with the govt's measures to manage the situation because of their personal issues. Let's set aside our political views for now and focus more on what's urgent that needs our utmost attentions. Yes, your plans may have been ruined but who isn't? Even businesses are struggling and many people lost their jobs. It's heartbreaking to see those who are primarily impacted by this pandemic and on how they strive to survive and there's so many of them. Indeed, this is a rough time to all of us. Sure, there are places handling it better than the others but wherever you are right now, you can help by staying at home, stay healthy and pray for everyone's safety specially those frontliners who are the heroes of our time. Most importantly, I hope we learned the lessons that this situation is trying to impart to us.
For now here's the shot from my previous trip in the busiest district in Kathmandu, 🇳🇵 Stay indoor, so we can go to places & create more beautiful memories🔜

Atıf Efendi Library 📚
Not only the modern and the republic era establishments but also Istanbul has it's own libraries coming through the Ottoman Empire. One of the hidden library which tourists do not heard about a lot, is the Atıf Efendi Library. It was completed by Köprülü Fazil Ahmet Paşa, the son of Köprülü Mehmet Paşa -who had a very important role in the Ottoman Empire-, in 1678.
It was the second library to have its own independent building after the Köprülü Library in the Ottoman State. The Atif Mustafa Efendi Library was established in the Vefa Quarter of Istanbul in 1741 by Atif Efendi, a divani poet who worked as Chief Registrar during Sultan Mahmut I’s rule. 🇹🇷

Located on the Anatolian side, Çengelköy is one of Istanbul's most historical neighbourhoods & renowned for its colourful vintage houses. (📍 Istanbul 🇹🇷 📸 @mstfatyfn )
This place should be on everyone's bucketlist, definitely one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. Looks amazing from the top, beautiful down the bottom, totally worth it to go down to the beach and stay there for a few hours without other people and take some really cool pics. 🤙🏻 #kelinkingbeach#nusapenida#indonesia
Ne ho spesso sottolineato i limiti, le mancanze, gli aspetti negativi, ma oggi voglio concentrarmi su tutte quelle cose che mi hanno strappato un sorriso.
Come cani e gatti che partecipano alle lezioni, seduti in braccio agli studenti, e ad un certo punto li riconosci - oggi manca il cane di X, ah, ecco finalmente il gatto di Y! - e finisci per fare l’appello anche a loro.
Come quando gli studenti per andare in bagno alzano la mano e chiedono il permesso o giustificano il rumore di aspirapolvere che proviene dalla stanza accanto con un laconico “scusi, prof, è la bidella”. Come quando i ragazzi si ricordano i dettagli della tua casa e si accorgono subito se cambi inquadratura. E poi si preoccupano perché non vedono mai nessuno sullo sfondo delle mie lezioni e si assicurano, premurosi, che io non sia sola.
Come quando un ragazzo ti suggerisce un gioco di carte online da fare con gli amici e si lascia scappare un “noi lo facevamo sempre a scuola” per poi aggiungere “cioè, non nelle sue ore”. Come quando ti confessano che la scuola manca e ti chiedono di lasciare un po’ aperta l’aula virtuale, durante il virtuale “cambio dell’ora” in modo da poter chiacchierare tra loro. •
