there will be some days when everything feels so light and enjoyable..
but there’s some days when your body feels cramped and your mind feels so blocked because of all the workload and pressures..

Review: Tré Semme Thermal Protection Spray


Bought this Tré Semme spray when I was still in France, yet I bought it from Amazon US because US got all the best yet cheap cosmetics!! *envy*
I bought this for 8 USD something, and the bottle is super big! My BF was kind enough to bring it back for me 🙂
I bought this product because I use hair straightener very often and my hair was screaming outloud (plus I straightened my hair 2 times in a year) -I know, I’ve abused my hair! Thats why I decided to protect my hair with this product.

Overall I don’t feel any direct impact to my hair. But, this spray didn’t ruin it either, so I pretty much have neutral opinion to this product, also it has a nice fragrance 🙂

Bridezilla: Venue!


I just booked my wedding venue last week, and it’s taa-daa.. GEDUNG ARSIP!

The package is not bad, not so pricey but not cheap as well.. anyway I think it’s my time to at least make few of my dream comes true.. I want a garden-romantic-party. Good for me, because Mrs Arianni said that as per October 2014, the management will be changed, so I might be some of the lucky brides who could enjoy an affordable wedding there 🙂

I finally realized that life is a combination of changes, and one thing that certain is the uncertainty itself.

After 5 months settling down in Indonesia, I realized that human could not change in an instant, yet we need time to adjust. There some people blessed with the ability to adjust, yet most human needs TIME.

But for sure, GOD is greater than all your problem.

And thank YOU GOD for all the lessons, blessings, and love that you have given up to this moment.

Success, failure, hope, bitterness.. I embrace everything as part of the beauty of life.

Be patient MY Child, and live your life to the fullest.

Take every chance, try everything.

It might leads you to something you never imagine, but NO regret.


Hey.. I’m 28 now.
I never imagined that at 28 years old I will still feel the “lost in life” stage.
I had a way different imagination when I was in school, picturing myself at this age. But well, I can say that I’m pretty much at where I was picturing myself, in terms of busy-ness. I always dreamed to be a super busy business woman.
I got all my dream comes true anyway :))
I got to pursue my master degree, I got a marketing career, worked at Google, and now super duper busy :))
But, there’s only 1 thing I didn’t picture before: I’m not happy.


Am I somekind of bitch?
I got everything people could dream of, but am still unhappy!

I got a great man besides me, soon to be married.
What else could I ask?
I know, I’m super bitchy!!
I’m trying to remember were I happy when I was in Singapore, France…?
Not really.
I always have excuses to tell the world: I’m unhappy!
What if everything has been taken from you? Can you still say you’re unhappy?

Okay, let make things clear.
I’m happy with my bf, I’m happy being close with him. I’m happy because I don’t need to be alone when I’m sick anymore! #liketonight

But somehow I just hate my job. That’s the reason of my unhappiness 😦
But God didn’t open another door for me to jump.. maybe because He doesn’t want me to jump. Maybe because he wants me to face reality #bestrong!

Maybe because he wants me to start my own business?
Which one?
I am sooooo scattered lately!!
Be focus on one goal, and work on it!

Bridezilla: Bridal survey

Okay, so before I decided to settle down with Yohannes bridal, I have been active-intensively seeking for a good and value for money bridal and prewedding photo vendor!

I was checking through the one and only for sure to look some of the name of the vendors and portfolios.. But I also actively blogwalking as well to see what real brides has said on the net.

Some vendors really caught my eyes:

1. JJ Bride (

I think this bridal has been the talk of the town since 5 years ago. They brought up new concept of Taiwanese edgy style with hundreds of pretty gown and amazing prewedding picture. Buuutt.. of course, you can’t pay peanut.. They are sooo expensive. Though am following the trick of the ex real brides on the forum, I tried to seek people who wanted to shift over their down payment, so I can get old price. I actually almost made a deal with one of the girl for 17 mio package (including everything, from make-up, bridal, prewed indoor outdoor, groom’s tuxedo).

But luckily, a day before meeting the girl, my mum said that she doesn’t want me to do the make-up in Jakarta because it’s just too much hassle. So I cancelled the meeting and decided to hire a MUA in Bogor. But the offer from Yohannes bridal is too tempting to reject! hehe..

2. Kaneta Bridal

They have cute gowns in their website, thus they also quite a good photographer. Buuut, the package price is too confusing to me, in Facebook the latest promo was 12.8 mio IDR for the same package as Yohannes, but when I called them, they said the package is 18 mio IDR. I was shocked, so I decided to delete them from my list.. LOL

Bridezilla: Yohannes Bridal

Today me and BF went to Yohannes bridal since they have a very interesting promo! 7.8 mio IDR only, including bridal gown, make-up for bride, moms, and bridesmaid, and prewedding indoor photo! It’s super cheap, none can beat them, even a new bridal. 

When I went there, I was amazed with a bride which just done her make-up there.. she looks amazing, flawless, and her hair do accessories is exactly like what I wanted! Basically, I was ‘amazed’ at the first sight.

Then I saw their wedding gown collections, it was only 5 mio IDR gown range, which is the cheapest.. but I think they were quite nice with a lots of sequins.

The marketing girl also quite nice and she didn’t push me to upgrade my package nor take the offer ASAP.. 

She did tell me that we can upgrade the photo sessions, because currently we can only get 10 photos wearing 1 gown, and if I add 1.5 mio IDR, I can get 20 photos with 3 other gowns. Well, I’ll think about it.. :))

Then if I want to upgrade the canvas picture from 50x60cm to 70x100cm, I also need to add 600,000 IDR.. 

After talking with BF, I finally paid the downpayment, which is 75% from the total amount 7.8 mio. We did a financial analysis, LOL.. to add 600,000 for canvas 70x100cm and 2.5 mio IDR for the cost of asking make-up artist to come to our venue for the retouch session.

Yippiii! I hope I made the right decision 😀

Review: Eco-tools brush

Review: Eco-tools brush

My favorite brushes, eco-tools! 😀
Got the kabuki brush while in Singapore, cost around SGD 16, then completed my collections when travelled to Harajuku Japan with wayyyy more cheaper price!
I got one set of blush brush, crease brush, eyeliner brush, and one pad type brush which I didn’t use because it’s hard to wash. I got it only for 600 JPY!
Uwwhh.. I guess they got it straight from China, thus it’s super cheap in China! In the US it’s also pretty cheap.
The bristles are sooo smooth and soft, better than any brush I had!
