Sharing is Caring One fine and hot morning we travelled all the way to West Jakarta (an area I know very little about) to visit a friend and have a much needed catch up. It was a few days before the second lockdown in Jakarta and I feel grateful to be able to have the chance to visit his sanctuary in the midst of industrial West Jakarta.  As we arrived at Parama Space, we were blown away by the size of this rustic industrial blank canvas. This big building used to be a bolt factory, now turned into a chic space for...

#iamimaji: Shannaz & Daiva

Imaji Studio
The first duo that popped into my mind when bringing the word 'nostalgia' and 'travel' together would be Shannaz & Daiva. The couple is known trendsetters of Jakarta's colorful underground party scene Suara Disko which brings back a wave of nostalgic Indonesian dance anthems from the 70s and 80s played on vinyl onto the dance floor full of millennials and old-timers alike. So it's only right that our muse for our collaboration with Mote-Mote for 'Window Seat' is this awesome duo that pushes their love for local brands to the absolute limit!

#iamimaji: Kallula

Imaji Studio

Define Kallula in words? Blunt, hard lover, sensible, and black parade.   What inspires you to be an entertainer? I believe it has always been my calling since I was small. Nobody in my family urges me towards that path until I decided to pursue them myself because I heard Lykke Li on the radio.   How does it feel to do the thing you love most? I feel blessed and scared at the same time. I wouldn't know how to live without music because it has always been a part of my life.   Is there any motto/mantras at...
