Adios 2015, Hey 2016!

Dear reader,
I'm writing to you on January 1, 2016!

I'd like to start the year with what were my morning prayer every day in middle school:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

2015 were so good to me, there are a few downs that I can easily overlooked over the shower of ups I've received. 
Over the year, I learnt about so many things including passion, the courage to pursue them, and consistency. 
I met so many new people, eliminate a few non-mutual so-called friendships, and cherished the real people who made big impacts. 
I took lots of chances in which I've made fond memories of.
I made a few super memorable trips with cousins, friends and family.
I met someone I fell in love with, some to call friends, lots of inspiring people. 
I loved, hated, and let go of the things I cannot fix.

May 2016 be more.

Mt. Fuji, Japan

Greetings from the freezing Japan, 
as I write this, it is 12.39 am, everyone else is asleep, tucked nicely in warm, fuzzy blankets, away from the bone-crushingly cold wind outside.
Japan has been absolutely stunning, it is beyond my expectation.
I went to an even colder part of Tokyo, a two hour car-ride to Fujiyama!
While it is absolutely fantastic, beautiful scenery in Mt. Fuji just made the whole ride worth it.
While it is hard trying to take pictures while my eyes are bleeding out water every 2 seconds, the view makes every photo just look damn majestic.
Nature's a good good friend of mine.
I'm going to curl up inside my warm blankie now!
Big love,

Graduation Look

I havent blogged in forever! 
I thought that I'd catch up with you.. well where to begin?
I got a new vlogging camera, and the quality is so much better than my old one!
So I hope it would help me vlog + blog better!

A few weeks ago I went to this guy's graduation! Proud of him for what he has achieved. Being 1 of only 3 graduates from his whole batch took time and dedication, I watched firsthand how hard he worked on his final tasks, well deserved!
Thought I'd blog about it because the occassion's pretty important, and beautiful to miss. 

 my friend Dhila also graduated, I'm very proud of her!

I couldn't be more in love.

Anyways, I'll catch up with you soon!

Halloween 2015 + 22nd Birthday

It's only fitting that my 100th post is my birthday + favourite halloween party so far.
My 'All Hallows Eve' this year is spent at campus. 
I'm the President of Art Division at my Campus' Student Body, so I made sure we celebrate the end of October the proper way. :P I collected my amazing team to plan an awesome, chill party with decorations and good food and I am so happy with how all turned out. 
In addition to all, it was also my birthday, so it's a double party for me and I couldn't have asked for more.
I was going to go as Khaleesi Danearys Targaryen but I feel too energetic and sexy on halloween eve, that I felt like I should just go as half-face (:
My lovely friends took the opportunity to throw me a surprise party, it's too adorable.
Chris, Nazneen & Tanya sang 22
Ella made me this pastry puff in replacement of cake because I don't like cakes
Bram made sure he helped me taking photos the whole night >.<
The whole IPMI IBS was amazing that night, I felt so loved.
 "..but it's halloweeeeeen, baby!"
all and all, 
it was one of the best halloweens I've ever been to,
what were you for halloween?
lemme know! :D

Triangl Bikini Review

So, a package came in the mail with my Triangl bathers in it!
So, if you don't already know, there's a huge hype surrounding the brand Triangl when we're talking about bikini. Basically, I'm going to do a review of this bikini today! 

Type & Colour : 
The style that I went for is called Chloe. I like this style in particular because my bra is between 34B/C, so this style would give it enough coverage, support, and is also adjustable. 
I couldn't decide the colour because everything just look so exquisite, so I asked B to choose a colour from the Triangl website and he liked Santa Rosa Splash best, and honestly, the blue is so beautiful and I do think it's one of their best. 
But honestly, all the colours are so pretty.

Material :
All the bikini sold by Triangl is known to be made of 100% neoprene,
it is the same material as diving suits. 
the neoprene is thick yet so soft, and you can tell that the suit is very well made.
Sizing :
now, the sizing could be complicated because the thing is with Neoprene, if it doesn't fit, IT DOESN'T FIT. But luckily, they have a live chat on their website with people that would help you decide on the sizing. I met a girl called Annie who was very helpful in deciding my size.
So, I was originally interested in both Chloe & Winnie, but Annie from Triangl said that the Chloe would suit my size best. She recommended the size M and honestly it fits perfectly when I tried it on.

if you're wondering if your nips will be visible when it gets a little chilly, I personally haven't tried using it in the pool yet, but from other reviews, blog post, videos and stories, it is thick enough not to expose your nipple to the world, but hey, let's see.
pros :
  • The material doesn't stretch
  • apparently the colour won't fade
  • very well made in terms of stitching and materials
  • website is informative enough + good service 
  • numerous choices of style and colours
  • prestige
cons :
  • most of the styles aren't adjustable
  • if the sizing is chosen incorrectly, it won't fit due to the non-stretchy fabric
  • it takes a while to dry
  • the bag's stitching is quite shitty tbh, don't count on it
  • quite pricey for a pair of bikini
Over all, I'm in love with my new bathers, 
it's super beautiful and hopefully I'll have a good run with it.

What's your favorite style from the Triangl line?

Lobbyn Kitchen & Bar

So, like I've said a couple posts ago, I've grown tired of going to malls, 
I rather sit somewhere and have quality talk with people I care about. 
i hope not.
Aaaaanyways! today B took me to a surprise place (thanks baaabe! <3) to chill called Lobbyn Kitchen & Bar, located in Kemang, Jakarta, Indonesia. Honestly it is such a pretty place that I couldn't keep it to myself..

I opted for a small cup of Machiatto while B is always, ALWAYS, so loyal to his Lemon Tea. 
honestly, this place has such an amazing view overlooking Kemang. 
I personally just have this extra strange love for Kemang, since I spent everyday of Junior High struggling to get there on time for 3 years. Haha, and also, walking to McDonalds everyday after school. Oh, wasn't it glorious, the time I couldn't get fat.
hahahaha, honestly, I have no explanation for that photo.
it's just hilarious.

aaaanyways, just thought that I'd share with ya'll photos & infos of this pretty place..
are you like me and you're starting to get tired of malls and opt for cafes & diners instead or you're still a mall person? lemme know! :D
