Happy 488th Birthday Jakarta!

Posted on Art, Travel | No Comments

1200x1200_EDT_150622_JAKARTA_BIRTHDAY

There is a strange relationship people have between Jakarta. Being a city synonymous with the word chaotic, every inch of the city from the sky-high concrete squares to the soil everyone steps on breeds a life of its own. There is a gap so large between what is there for us and the dream of the city we wish to attain. Yet, despite the on-going bicker and sweat poured to make our day worthwhile. Jakarta still is home to those with a warm welcoming embrace. Even though we often wish to be away from the chaos, Jakarta is an open gate available to be unlocked by those willing to try over and over again for the loops of opportunity available in abundance — only if we are willing to look for them.

Jakarta is not London, Paris, New York or any other great city. Despite its pollution and bumper-to-bumper traffic, living in Jakarta is about taking chances, being close to family, and having true friends. It is a melting pot where you will find many inspiring minds and undiscovered talent. Appearances are often deceiving. This is definitely the case with a chaotic city like Jakarta, but once you delve into its inner beauty you realize that this is a place brimming with vitality and an abundance of untapped creative energy.” – Melissa Sunjaya, Co-founder and Artist of Tulisan

Happy 488th Jakarta!

Boundless Possibilities for Tulisan in Singapore

580_Tulisan3_Square

A few years ago, when Melissa Sunjaya and the Tulisan team started their small booth in Darmawangsa Square, the idea of actually opening a store outside of Jakarta, let alone out of Indonesia, was still far from their mind. The goal then was to get Tulisan known for what it valued.

580_JOU_150529_SING_18

Today, witnessing the rapid growth of Tulisan and the people who have followed us throughout the years brings a tremendous feeling of gratitude to the people who have joined us to make our dreams worthwhile.

580_JOU_150529_SING_16

580_JOU_150529_SING_52

Our newest friends of Plus62Ima S Chambers, Richard M Hurst, and Farah S Suraputra — gave Tulisan its own life in a city where iconic buildings, heritage, and advance infrastructure are intertwined as one. Singapore blasting with its dynamic vision welcomed our humble store to be part of its vibrant growth.

580_JOU_150529_SING_69

580_JOU_150529_SING_30

Different from our usual presence of  friends and family in Jakarta, we were gracefully welcomed by the honourable Mrs. Ferial Hadi, the wife of current ambassador to Singapore. Surprisingly with a few familiar faces in Indonesia’s film industry, Emlo Hilyawan and Caroline Zachrie. 

580_JOU_150529_SING_24

We were also given a local taste of the music scene from the lovable jazz duo, Polkadot & Moonbeam, letting us sway in the romantic harmony which joyfully created a pleasant mood and atmosphere for the store.

580_JOU_150529_SING_12 580_JOU_150529_SING_17

To equip the romantic mood of the opening, while we spent our day chatting with the new faces, we delightfully indulged the Sparkling wine by Straits Wine Company, the abundant chocolate jar and cake pop made especially by Foo Mei-Zee, and freshly made delicacies by Chef Diego Chiarini of OSO Ristorante

580_JOU_150529_SING_5

580_JOU_150529_SING_56

As Melissa shared her terrible experience of being badly bitten and wounded by her pet dog when she was younger, she made a point of sharing to the audience how her belief of coming through all the pain and trauma with an open hand to be the premise of what Tulisan is today. And luckily, her belief of reaching boundless possibilities has landed her lovable offspring to Singapore.

A Tulisan Woman: Dyah Ambarwati

580x580_EDT_150424_Dyah_Ambarwati_29

Dyah Ambarwati rushes through the Darmawangsa store in full gear. Always in full preparation as she seems to be. She came bustling inside with a genuine warmth packed with almost a dozen of her personal favorite Tulisan collection.

EDT_150424_Dyah_Ambarwati_01

Earlier in the week, our team made an appointment to visit Dyah in her office. The skyhigh office space with its transparent windows secretly keeps a handful of gem she holds with high regard.

EDT_150424_Dyah_Ambarwati_06

“In 2010, I bought a placemat and an iPad cover,” recalling the start of her loyal following to Tulisan. In actuality, Dyah, a human resource practioner, already adored what was to become of Tulisan — even from hearing the vague concept yet to be materialised. She met Melissa Sunjaya in 2006 through a mutual friend and have since grew an admiration over Melissa’s thoughtful vision of creating sustainable art products.

EDT_150424_Dyah_Ambarwati_08

“What striked me most is the character of Amma Suphahilo, it describes myself of having so many problems but is still able to tackle the situation well.”  The problem she is stating may vary, but being an active woman — a mother of three who also is ambitiously juggling her career in the field of people development — she constantly feeds herself with the inspiration she places around her.

EDT_150424_Dyah_Ambarwati_13

“I also adore Victor because it is part of my playful character.” Her office is prominently decorated with Giclée set side by side to provide her with a soulful balance. “It reminds me no matter how big the problem is, as long as you are calm, playful and cheerful, you can solve it.

EDT_150424_Dyah_Ambarwati_11

She believes an extension of warmth and openness is necessary to welcome people. Her daily encounter with different characters motivated her to provide a comfortable space to loosen up any rigid atmosphere.

EDT_150424_Dyah_Ambarwati_17

Throughout her journey, she has learned foremost to extend empathy towards people. “I have been teaching myself to listen more.” She is high on her intuition in understanding the human character, but uses her visual senses in selecting the Tulisan collection which strikes and reflects her vibrant life.
