Ashes to Ashes

One of the burned house I've found during my trip to Bunyu Island. Despite all the ruins, I found it pretty unique that some people there use it as a pond. I don't know, perhaps many people do this in some places, but unfortunately this is the first 'pond house' I have ever met in my whole entire life.
And I must say its quite amusing to see some sort of new life were (being) born out of the ashes..

An Ethnography of A Hotel Room. Eps 1

There's always something eery yet exciting about a hotel room. Its the loneliness and the alienated feeling, yet homey at the same time. And my favorite kind of hotel room is always this B type hotel. The kind of hotel that didn't serve any fancy breakfast, or 24 hour room service, nor any spa, gym or a poolside view. The kind of hotel that usually gave you broken air conditioner or damp sheet, watermarks on the ceiling, some stains on the carpet, some scribbles on the wall.. perhaps phone numbers, addresses, or just names or words that once priceless.
Or sometimes..its just the aroma of history about sin and shifting..
