a little update.

It’s been quite a while since I write anything in this blog, first of all, sorry for the missing beauty posts – I have some new products I have tried and worth reviewing but just haven’t figured out the right time to do it yet at the new house. Right… on to the life’s update:…

Summer Wedding: Meet the Sexton

Sebulan yang lalu aku pulang ke kampungnya Pete untuk menghadiri pernikahan ibu mertua aku. Terus kan ya, karena ibunya nggak mau ribet-ribet sewa fotografer, jadi menantu kesayangannya yang cuma bisa foto seadanya ini… ditugaskan jadi tukang tustel. Nah, ini beberapa halaman dari photobook yang aku buat sebagai hadiah pernikahan, silakan disimak. Kritik dan saran boleh…

Half a Decade of Lost Love

Our First Christmas
