Flashback to my trip with the Grandparents to Nottingham, if I could tell you something more than the castle and Robinhood, it would be the Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem.

Pond’s BB Magic Powder: RCMA dupe?

Recently, this cute-little-pink-powder has stormed into the Indonesian beautysphere: the Pond’s BB Magic Powder. To be honest, I have never been a fan this brand, I find their ingredients are sometimes too harsh for my skin, and I dislike how much the brand promotes ‘being white is better’, etc. Ah well… into the product.

Tentang Ayah

  Hari ini ayahku (seharusnya) berulangtahun, yang keenampuluh sembilan. Setiap tahun aku selalu membelikan beliau hadiah yang walaupun kecil, tapi bisa membuat tersenyum. Ah… aku rindu senyumnya.

Unrequited Love

The older I get, the more I realise how valuable and beautiful a friendship is. I had always been a loner. Even when I was a kid, I found it difficult to converse with people because as an only child, the most talking I’d ever had was with my nanny and my Teddy bears. I…

Tear-Jerking Movies

Pernah nggak nangis karena nonton film? Kalau aku sih… sering haha. Tapi disclaimer dulu ya, aku emang cengeng orangnya. Gak usah nonton film sedih, liat bapak-bapak tua di pinggir jalan pakai sandal jepit yang udah jelek tipis aja, aku nangis. Atau liat bapak-bapak tua dorong sepeda/gerobak sendirian, nangis juga. Tapi nih, ada yah film yang…

Up and Down the Hill in Matlock

After my last post on Bakewell, still from the same day trip with the father-in-law to Peak District, Derbyshire I am about to write you through Matlock.
