Who is Shinta
A bit about me. People usually call me Shintabubu, because my company name is Bubu.com. Well, for starter I am a proud Indonesian, a Tech entrepreneur, a Digital/Tech Venture Capitalist with an architecture background, a loving wife and mother of 2 gorgeous girls. And yes, I am a Capricorn and a rooster; I write, I read, I paint, I create, I collect, I crave for fashion and style and I endure pain (a genuine sign that you are alive and kicking) and live for happiness.
The emotion and the passion that I sense are the factors that brought me to write this blog. Lately, I ache to get in touch with that part of me. The facet that I had ignored in my hectic days and yet, I reluctantly relinquished because how it had bestowed upon me a comfort zone. A place for me to discover a “whole new world” and a place that I come to become so “ME” again. I am nobody just the “passionated Shinta” in this blog.
If most people know me from my techy venture with my Bubu.com, by reading this blog you will discover my intense passion for batik, fashion, architecture, culture and art. I want to share with you my passionated facet which is mostly the designer, poet, art enthusiast and collector part of me, the side that not everyone knows about. One of my passions is my love for the Indonesian Batik. I believe Indonesian batik is the most beautiful batik in the world. I am not just saying this because I am Indonesian, but the work that Indonesian Batik makers had put in through out the centuries is just extraordinary. I don’t know where to begin, but I have this exceptional and emotional fascination for Indonesian Batik, be it Antique Batik or the new Batik.
I highly salute the Batik makers, who have not only artistic skills in creating a hand drawn Batik cloth but he or she has to have the extra patience and passion to craft a batik cloth from the beginning till the end. So in this blog, I dedicate my passion for art, design, fashion, antiques and Indonesian Batik in particulars, so a perfect name I thought would be to name this Blog: Batik Antik (bahasa Indonesia for: Antique Batik).
This blog will represent the other side of me, the side that fell in love with batik, fashion, culture and art, thus I turn this blog into a fashion and lifestyle blog. A blog that shows how Indonesian batik clothes, Indonesian woven clothes and other Indonesian fashion accessories are as beautiful and gorgeous as any world class designers clothing and accessories. In fact, you will notice that even big hollywood stars and big time fashion designers are now often seen supporting the Indonesian traditional batik and ikat patterns and fabrics. And, by wearing batik and other “made in Indonesia” apparels/accessories will only take your other luxurious branded and designers items to another level. It will give you an edge and a personality that others do not possess, just because Indonesian traditional fabrics are beyond branded and luxurious goods that are world known. The Indonesian batik and traditional woven cloth are master pieces that are produced with love, talents and depth understanding of art and cultures. My mission here is to show the whole world, these beautiful master pieces can only be done in the land of Indonesia. Hopefully, I will get everyone to appreciate and love the work that go behind in creating them. I must proudly say it is as passionately and skillfully produced as a Hermes bag or an LV luggage. No doubt about that…
Hope through this blog, I can share with all of you a tint of passion and a dash of inspiration; as I always indulged myself to be inspired by the divine individuals that surround me. Here with also, I dedicate a special section in my Blog for all those inspirational personas who are designers, painters, art enthusiasts, mentors and alike whom I met or yet to meet.
My deepest gratitude to those lovely people who have granted me with endless stimulation that had birthed all the aspirations in my life. To everyone who reads my blog, thank you and enjoy to continuously be inspired. Hope everyone can enjoy the fashionable and cultural facet of mine.
