10 reasons why (I think) the 60's is a fascinating time period

Of all the decades that I’ve lived in (’80s, ’90s, 2000s), I think the ’90s is the coolest one. Probably because of my memorable youth years happened in that decade. Really memorable, fun and a great decade.

But. If I should choose the most fascinating one, without a doubt I say it’s the ’60s. Why?

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Because :

1. Jack and Jackie Kennedy.
I love them. His brain and her look is a fatal combination.

2. The Beatles and the British invasion.
They rock!

3. Motown is founded.
My soul is in the making.

4. Lots of movements happened : African American Civil right movements and Gay Rights movements.
You do know that I love being a part of history, don’t ya?

5. Mary Quant’s mini skirt
In my mind, I have loooong legs.

6. Breakfast at Tiffany’s with George Peppard and Audrey Hepburn
“So what?” “So plenty!”

7. Human landed on moon.
How cool is that? Way cool.

8. The G-30s PKI coup in Jakarta
I know it’s scary but I want to know how it was like.

9. The Rat Pack
’nuff said.

10. Bossa nova in Brazil by A.C Jobim and Joao Gilberto
Without them, I wouldn’t be this jazz.

I’d consider moving here

North Carolina Zoo

1. Fayetteville, NC

Because the man I love lives there, because of the Cape Fear River Trail and because how cheap Clinique products are.

2. New York City, NY

It’s unexplainable, but ever since I can remember I always want to live here

3. London, UK

I like the fact that it’s almost always cloudy and drizzling in London.

And so that I can sing, “I saw you there and in a foggy London town, the sun is shining everywhere” again

4. Johannesburg, South Africa

A big city which is only hours away from Kruger National Park, I can’t ask for more

5. Jaipur, India

Less crowded than New Delhi and a historical city.

This is going to be my home base when I write the travel book (for high maintenance tourist) on India

6. Jogjakarta, Indonesia

A city closest to my root.
