bicycle pit stop café

for a cup of excellent coffee and maybe a homemade tiramisu cake on the side, siTigun is a wonderful place to visit on a bicycle. created by two-time round the world cyclist tigun wibisana, it has many additions you won’t find in an ordinary cafe. a place to park your bicycle inside for example.

classic advertising posters…

as well as a matching cycle on the wall.

jazz was pouring from the speakers and the evening sun lit up the café while i was writing lyrics…

recommend! the address:

15 – 17 nagore road,

10050 penang.

locations lyrics


one of the most influential poets of persia is hafez. his tomb in shiraz is a frequently visited place by iranians and his poems are cited in persian traditional music.


people are trying to find answers or seek help for decisions through reading verses by hafez.

the tomb is surrounded by wonderful gardens, flower beds,


and orange trees…



First there was… a name

Why this blog is called “living in and dreaming of”:

I once wrote following lyrics  to a song

“heaven can wait ’cause i have hardly enough

of this world i am living in and dreaming of”


The world you are living in and the world you are dreaming of.

The bridge between the realist and the optimist.

The need to understand what there is and the courage to belief what there might be.

The lines in between the two are blurred and these worlds are interconnected and interacting.
