Eh…nitip ini, dong!

Sering nggak dengar kalimat diatas kalau mau pergi liburan? Apalagi kalau liburannya ke destinasi kuliner populer misalnya Bali, Medan, atau Jogja? Aku tipe orang yang bisa dibilang jaraaaaang banget nitip, sekali-sekalinya nitip itu karena memang barangnya nggak ada disini dan aku pasti kasih uangnya dimuka karena nggak mau ngeganggu budget liburan orang yang dititipin. Sahabat-sahabat…

MAC Times Nine Dupe? MAC vs. Focallure

Hi, everyone! It’s been ages since I write anything makeup-wise, Indonesia’s beauty blogosphere had been raving about this very cheap, but very pigmented eyeshadow from China-based brand: Focallure.   I had never been interested in buying one until when recently, I purchased the MAC Times Nine Eyeshadow, which, reminds me a lot of the Focallure…

Bourton-on-the-Water

This year, I am blessed to go back to England to attend and capture the mother-in-law’s wedding. As usual, whenever we’re back, we always try to spend as much time as possible with the family. Nan and granddad took us out to York in my first visit in 2014, and we spent a day out…

Cohabitating

When we first got together, given the condition that we were both living in Jakarta by ourselves, it was so easy for us to move in but I didn’t want to do it unless he proposed. At the very least, the ring ensures me that this boat that we ride on was actually going somewhere.…

Jelajah Sentul

Jadi akhir April kemarin, aku dan dua sahabatku, Vera dan Mycel, yang memang udah lama banget pengen jalan-jalan tapi selalu terbentur kesibukan masing-masing, akhirnya memutuskan tujuan untuk singgah ke Gunung Pancar, Sentul.

Meet Figasaurus Rex

We got a cat. Namanya Fig. Kenapa Fig? Karena mirip Fig dari @figanddumpling. Fig ini sudah berkeliaran di lobby apartemen dari akhir tahun lalu. Pertama kali ketemu Fig, aku lagi sayang-sayang kucing lain, terus tangan dipegang-pegang sama Fig karena dia cemburu. Dari dulu, kami sering kasih makan Fig, sering sayang-sayang Fig karena kucing ini suka…

E&O: Southeast Asian Street Food, Levelled Up

Born, raised, and living in Indonesia has made myself very familiar with Asian dishes. In Jakarta, where people are spoilt for choices to dine… most Southeast Asian dishes are available in a home-style restaurant with casual settings. Between my birthday and his new job, we decided to celebrate the two together in our favorite place…

Review: Sephora 10-hr perfect foundation

I am pretty sure everyone who reads this must have gone through the time of looking at their pretty self on the mirror and said ‘My face looks way too dark.. too yellow.. too pale’ and the gasping moment continues forever until you found the right foundation. Funnily (and ironically) enough that, despite living in…

DIY Coffee Scrubs

Ok, I’d tell you something about me, this is very (NOT) important and I didn’t think it was a big deal until I realised it was not normal here. I LOVE taking hot shower! Hahaha. I know it’s not good for the skin, and I know… that I am currently living in a tropical country,…
