Welcome to my blog !
Last December, a week before new year to be exact, I had a short trip to the historical city of Yogyakarta, Central Java.

I was amazed. 

After three months in Jakarta, hanging out in hip cafes feels endless and dull. So when my mom inquired me about the trip, I immediately said LET'S GO! After arriving in Adisucipto airport, the driver took us for a cultural trip to the famous Prambanan temple, Keraton and of course, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Borobudur temple. It was such a breathe of fresh air and well, some Gudeg here and there didn't hurt too (except for my growing belly). After being abroad for years, I am very sure this trip was the right call. It was a great way to feel connected to my roots. I hope I'll have the chance and time to visit more mind-blowing places here in Indonesia. 

p.s: a trip to Yogyakarta won't be complete without a night visit to Malioboro, a major shopping street loaded with street food vendors, where I tried Kopi Joss Arang (coffee with charcoal). It sounds bizarre, but then charcoal seems to gain its popularity these days due to its aid for digestion plus it smells amazing!




I have been so guilty for posting so few since last year, which by the way is a good reminder for me to say:

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016. 

Relax, I am not going to bore you with another new year, new resolutions post. I'll save it for another time. Joking. Honestly, I have this many thoughts that are just stuck up there in my head that I'd like to share, yet don't know where to begin. Apart from convincing my brothers that Bee Gees' How Deep Is Your Love is a CLASSIC unlike Calvin Harris one, I am also in this stage of life where I constantly questioned 'what should I do next?'. After finishing what I think as the best internship experience ever (big thank you to my great colleagues), I am officially back to square one. Should I do finance just like what I studied back in the university? Should I pursue my passion? Which one should I do first? Should I wait for the right time? bla bla bla…

Not necessarily in that order, but yes my life in these past six months is what I'd describe as 'the Caitlyn Jenner phenomenon'. It was sudden and confusing that I started to type these 'symptoms' to of course none other than… Google!

According to Google, I am in a state of what is called as 'Quarter-Life Crisis'. Sweet. It says: 

Common symptoms of a quarter life crisis are often feelings of being "lost, scared, lonely or confused" about what steps to take in order to transition properly into adulthood. Studies have shown that unemployment and choosing a career path is a major cause for young persons to undergo stress or anxiety. Early stages of one living on their own for the first time and learning to cope without parental help can also induce feelings of isolation and loneliness.

True and true.. so while typing this post down, funny, how I found my answer to life in this pleated harem pants. How so? I admit, I was always that 'playing-it-safe' kind of girl in term of styling, so it was rather unusual for me to purchase and mostly be seen wearing this. Yet again, I feel like exploring. Reflecting it back to my life, I guess I should be more relaxed like this harem pants. Be more fun, adventurous and taking life less seriously. I can feel this year is going to be a one different kind of ride for me and I hope this new year bring immense joy and fun to your life as well!

As Jakarta Fashion Week ended last week, the wedding season has officially begun. Possibly the only city where two or three weddings in one night are considered normal. Last weekend, I had my Sunday filled up with birthday lunch then followed by becoming the +1 to a friend's wedding. Instead of wearing a default dress, I wore the same black top, paired it with my favorite pants in the afternoon, then changed to a more formal printed skirt. I love bags and shoes. Hence, I always opt for these two to complete a look. Peekaboo for lunch and Intrecciato for an evening reception.  Talk about life, I am thankful these days life has treated me pretty well. As I reflected on myself, I can't help but amazed at how time flies. It's almost that time of the year!
Hope life is treating everyone well :)

 I basically grew up reading a bunch of magazines, so for what it's worth, starting an editorial internship in L'Officiel Indonesia is certainly something for me. First day is always exciting but undeniably nerve-racking! For almost every occasion, I always try to visually imagine what I will wear. But looking at my closet I just realized I don't have any professional clothes. Hence it was the right call to... SHOP! After hours of this "fabulous sport" and felt I did enough damage to the card, I officially have a grown-up lady closet filled with smart blouses, tailored pants and blazers. Finding pants is an endless challenge for my body type, but this pant fits like a boss. I just love how the flare adds extra feminine to this already masculine color.

After a tiring week, Sunday should be the day that I can relax and dress comfortably. This is the day when my family and close cousins meet over a dim sum lunch. Hence this should be a big reason for me to ditch those tight-fitting clothes. First, those eye-rolling and head-shaking are just unnecessary . Second when I eat, I REALLY eat. Honestly the bloating won't be cute after. The trick is not to mistaken "comfortable dressing" as a reason to wear dreadful and ill-fitting clothes (exception when you are home or Gigi Hadid). To me shirts are amazing as I can achieve different looks from formal workday to Sunday effortlessly chic looks. I believe everyone should must have at least one white oversized boyfriend shirt in their wardrobe. It is a great classic and comfy piece to wear over jeans or shorts, perfectly suitable for Sunday mass as well. I recently spotted this shirt from ZARA and I just knew I have to have it. To make the outfit looks smarter and less sloppy, I paired it with heels, plus a statement bracelet like Hermès Collier de Chien will do the whole outfit justice.

Sunday couldn't get any better than receiving a generous amount of freshly-made puddings. I mean, who doesn't love this sweet melting-in-your-mouth desserts? I love snacking, but I try to avoid fries and other unhealthy snacks. This soft and milky pudding from MELT'S DESSERT is just the answer to my hesitation! Unlike any other "home-made" pudding stands out there, the owner has poured her great passion to ensure the puddings are absolutely legit and preservative-free. Only the freshest and most delicious puddings are delivered to MELT'S DESSERT customers. Don't worry about the storage as the pudding lasts 10 days inside the refrigerator and up to 5 hours in room temperature.

Six fabulous flavors to choose: Strawberry, Grape, Melon, Lychee, Mango, Chocolate

As cliché as it may sounds, Paris is just simply amazing. I could visit this magical city a thousand times and always have completely different experience. I love to wonder around the city and got lost down the streets I've never been before. I have some favorite places to stroll or simply people watching, such as the Avenue Montaigne, Saint Germain or any random streets with inviting café. This time I was staying in one gorgeous Parisian sun-drenched penthouse I found from Airbnb and just 3 minutes away from the crowded street of Champs-Élysées. I have to say Airbnb has such fabulous options of places to stay in Paris! I wish I could have stayed longer, but I was in Paris for merely 2 days. Not so much to see, but enough to shop, eat and breathe... PARIS!
