Bikini Body for December


Who have summer in December? Australians do! One Tuesday, after a little chit chat accompany with delicious Sweet strawberry tart and a lunch in an Aceh Restaurant. I think I need to burn some calories and diminish some fat to look great in swim suit. I choose to bike around, since its fun and I had bike, Lol.
1st try, I bike for 4 km took a rest at KFC and order Mocca Float (ouch, so failed), But on the way back home I took a 6 km route.
2nd try I took the same route, but instead of stop at KFC, I went to Superindo (Supermarket) to do a little errand for my brother.
3rd try I took a longer route, 8 km with some stop at “Universal”  DVD rental store, I rent 5 title of old movies, and a little chit chat near my place with friends.
4th try, I took longer route like 11 km, I start late than usual, and the street weren’t as crowded as usual, so I took a chance to add more km and visit my friend on the way back home, and took my package from my cousin place.

Acctually since it’s a rainy season, any outdoor sport activities isn’t such a great idea. I hardly bike this past week because of the weather. But here is some tips to be enthusiast to workout.

Halloween 2013


Okay I didn't go to any Halloween party, I just got home from the parent meeting from my brother school, order some Chinese food and then had date with my dentist. But night is still long, it's Halloween, everybody dress up, and I'm feeling creative. I put some make up and Tadaaa...

I dress as Nü gui, in chinese folkore this ghost is the spirit of a woman who committed suicide while wearing a red dress. Usually, she met with some injustice when she was alive, such as being wronged or sexually abused. She returns to take her revenge.The dress, I got it for Chinese new year in 2012, My cousin ask me, "Did you watch the horror movie about the girl who killed while wearing a red dress, and then the spirit haunt the killer for revenge". What an info sis, and such an inspiration.
Eventually I got extra time and creativity left from last night that I try to make some gore...
All I use only tissue, eyelid glue, some foundation and dark brown shadow and red nail polish.

Aesop in Bathroom

How's life lately?

I've been trapped inside this house since my return from Hong Kong. I can leave house if I want. But I will felt super guilty over my paperwork (due next Thursday and which unlucky I haven't started yet). What happen to my life lately:
1. I just came home from Hong Kong and I one thing I regret is I don't bring a luggage big enough.
2. I hope that this is my final year, In order to obtain my diploma I should finish writing undergraduate thesis. which I haven't really start. (Super Lazy)
3. We'll move out from our house, and plan to buy or build  a house. So soon enough, I will put many picture about interior design and all the thing.
4. I want to buy a new camera pocket, and new cellphone, with limited budget, I should decide which one I would buy.
5. Mosquitoes, I caught at least 3 or them in my room 'everyday'. wtf, I never been attacked by little insect like this. Good thing we'll move out soon, but still at night I couldn't sleep, because they fly near my ears.
6. have you seen new Trouble Maker MV Now? check them right now! I don't think the story line good enough, but Hyuna and (especiallly) Hyun Seung really rocking their new look.

Style Inspiration: Frill Effect

I'm so bored seeing the black and white pattern trend that practically everywhere. It emerges as a stripe, check mat and huge hound's tooth, on pants, skirt , dress , shoes everywhere. Although I'm a big fan of black and white, I can't stand it any more. I want to see another color another pattern. Other thing aside the stripe, checkmate and hound's tooth. Beside living in tropical country where the sun shine 365 days a year, and in the corner of drier season. The sun shine brightly to the point it hurts my eyes. Those pattern for me look like a square concrete building in the middle of desert. Hot weather + Strong structure = Harsh Rash. 

I would propose this frill effect style. A frill detail on the end of the sleeves, on the collar , and skirt give an instant touch of femininity. Soften all the harsh. and added fun detail to the plain outfit.

App of the Moment: SomTodo


SomTodo is a free task manager application for iPhone and Android and also in web. There are two things that I love about this application. First it has simple layout and no ads although it's free. Second I like the cloud feature which allows me to add update through the closest gadget in my reach, and everywhere in sync. I've been using this for few weeks, so far it run smoothly on my old android phone. Plus I could quickly add something by widget (not sure how to explain this, I just simply don't need open the program, practical!)

2013 Beauty Resolution


 "Beauty is being the best possible version of yourself on the inside and out"

1. Flat Iron 
    I'm not a fan of sleek straight hair, but I learned that we also can use flat iron to create a wavy hair style.
2. Get Make-up Brush
     When applying eyeshadow I use my hand to blend the product. I end up catch more product in my finger tip than my eyelid.
3. Try BB cream
    Before I've tried BB cream from Maybelline and but it made me breakout. But I never try the Asian BB cream. It claims to give your skin nice coverage while repair/heal your skin.
4. Make up Palette
    Enlarge my collection and experiment with colors.
5. Instagram my nail creation
    Doing my nails is a great stress reliever, I done it once to twice a week. Instagram my nail help me to
6. Drink More Water
    Moisturize your skin from outside wouldn't enough, need helps from inside. Right diet and enough water would do.

Alone in my room in new years eve, I couldn't have the silent night since the rain stop and the firework began.  It's so loud at the point so disturbing rather than admiring. At the very last minute I canceled my plan to spend NYE with my friend. I think I love being by myself (and internet) a lot more. 2012 had been an adventurous year for me.
