Enchanting Macau






(H&M top, Forever 21 skirt, Vince slip-on shoes, Zara necklace, Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, Ray Ban aviator)

These pictures were taken during my last trip to Macau. Always heard of this city as Asia's own Las Vegas, unfortunately minus those pool parties and DJs. However, Macau surely has its own charming characteristic. As a city that was once colonized by the Portuguese, Macau has turned into one of those cities that has a foreign 'touch', for instance you can see it in their architectures or even I was surprised that most of the writings are not just in Chinese, but also in Portuguese! I was lucky I stayed in The Venetian, the legendary hotel in Macau. It's HUGE. By huge, I mean I was completely speechless. They literally put a shopping centre inside the hotel, they even have their own man-made canals which you can ride on, complete with the guy/girl paddling the boat resembling the real Venetian in Italy. Regarding the casino, I can't talk much of them as I am considered under age (not 21 yet), which is kind of disappointing. Like, come on I am in one of those cities that legalized gambling, yet I can't witness it? Urgh.

In touristic sides, I just visited the famous Ruin of  St.Paul's, it was in the city centre and was very packed. To be honest, I had good times there and will revisit once I reach the legal age, and try my luck.. who knows, maybe I am actually good at it?

Make a wish



Shanghai is like a home for me and it will always be, so it was and still is very hard to let go. However, one thing I am grateful is to have all the memories alive somewhere in my brain. Sounds very poetic and stuff, but thanks a lot to everyone who has been part of my journey for these 3 years. You will all be missed and I am very sure we will all meet again! Anyway, these pictures were taken in Hong Kong, it was a short trip in between Shanghai and Jakarta with my family. I didn't do much there, just city sightseeing, witnessing the night view of Hong Kong skyscraper (MUST) and met my old friend, Milan who showed what and where the locals go eat, drink and PARTY! Thanks a lot dear :) 

I am in love with this nude sandal I spotted from Steve Madden. It's so pretty and it goes well with my violet nails, don't you think? And I am all about multi functional outer wear, so once I saw this H&M animal pattern, all I could think was all the different ways I can wear it.

Btw, guys it might be a bit late but I did a guest post with Style by Asia for a festival coverage in Shanghai, DAFF. Do check HERE , cheers!

Inner Mongolia photo diary








If you follow me on Instagram or you know me personally (ha) you will see some of these pictures and yes I just travelled to Inner Mongolia during my last holiday. If you know the story of this trip, you'll be surprised! It was a very crazy random idea from my beloved cousin! We were just talking via WeChat (Chinese WhatsApp) for about 3 days and tadaaa.. here it is our Inner Mongolia trip! Where is it exactly? It is just the north of Beijing and still in China. This is definitely one of those memorable trips I've ever had. My first desert trip, ATV desert style and camel ride for sure! Did you see my camel? Too cute! And those huts in the picture, no we did not stay there unfortunately as the weather can be very extreme, hot in the afternoon and minus degree at night. So we spoiled kids decided to stay in the hotel downtown, Hohhot city which by the way is a very cool city as it is surrounded by the desert! The modern building above is the newly renovated city museum, must visit. Can't wait for my next adventure. Thank you to my cousin who crazily out of the blue and randomness proposed this idea. Love you!

In celebration of winter and new love to gym, the 'sporty chic' look is definitely under my radar. Without sounding like an advertisement, I never think I will visit Nike or New Balance stores this often these days. Apart from its obvious comfiness, they really have some cute collections (unlike those old days) that I would love to wear for everyday life. Can't wait to get my hands feet on the fab chic Nike Sky Dunk Hi.

The 2.0

Hello march , hello world

2.0
tuː pɔɪnt ˈəʊ/

What does that even mean? Simply means something new, more advanced than the previous version. This is what I exactly want from this ....erghm old blog of mine. I admit it back on those days it was pretty tough to run fashion blog and still standing ovation to the blogger friends of mine who still until these days excitedly snapping pictures of their looks, commenting and reviewing the latest shows in Milan, Paris, New York, London, Jakarta, everywhere! Amazing!

In the darker side, back on the blogging glory days, I also admit it was pretty crazy of me to post something that I think will only increased my comments. However, after an on-and-off Hollywood kind of relationship with this blog I proudly said, just like Amanda Bynes post-rehab state, I'm gonna start fresh. Just like the title, it's gonna be "5 Minutes Fame 2.0". If you notice too, I changed my domain from mysweetsourlife.com to fiveminutesfame.com cos I think some people often confused of my blog name haha.

Asides from pure fashion, this time I will post beauty products (Guilty!) // food recipes (I cook organic now!) // music (who doesn't love?) // some cool pictures //  travel // etc.

Anyway, can't wait to share them!

fall wishlist


By the time I arrived in Shanghai next month, the weather will probably be chill and windy. Therefore, I've made some hard irresistible wish list. I'm in love with:

1. Acne Mape cropped lizard-embossed leather jacket crop jacket suits me because of my small short figure, it just makes me slightly taller.
2. H&M faux fur vest. Before I came back to Jakarta, I spotted this before, but at that time I wasn't sure to purchase it, especially to put it on my overweight luggage.
3. Rayban clubmaster. Urgh! I just love the design, so city chic.
4. Good quality point and shoot camera. Been struggling to carry my huge DSLR camera everywhere, so I need small easy good quality camera for my day-to-day activity. Suggestion?
5. Burberry Amber Belted wool Wilderley Jacket  Look instantly sophisticated with Burberry's jacket and never go wrong with wool for winter.
6. NARS pink lipstick.
7. Chanel Les Khakis de Le Vernis. I'm lately obsessed with khaki color.
8. Sergio Rossi mid calf boot. Again, I love khakis!
