Ready, Set, Serve đŸŽŸ

Don't practice until you get it right. Practice until you can't get it wrong. 

Tennis is one of the thing I love to do when life's too much of a drama, including Muay Thai and Taekwondo too but Tennis is a must at times. 

I couldn't resist to take a few pictures as part of my documentary before enjoying my so called tennis session. I look pretty sassy yet sporty at the same time. It was hard for me to climb on the highchair but it's worth it. I got this awesome picture with me to share on Instagram and here. 


 

I did two different outfits on two different sessions. It's blue and black kind of theme. Here's the Blue Themed Outfit. Let's have a look! 

 

I can assure anyone who's reading my post that I'm not a pro at all but I love running around the court and of course, learning is a process. It takes time and practice. Of course, skills too. 

 

Pro? Not yet, maybe sometime in the future. We'll see. 


Here's the other session with Black Themed Outfit. If you noticed, I have a major craziness for Adidas. Dolled up in Adidas Sports in both outfit posts đŸ–€

 

I love Adidas more than other sportswear brand in the world. Why? It's comfortable, affordable and of course, it's like making a statement as #TeamAdidas. 


I love these pictures to no end #self-loving

Make Up Certification 👀

Keep your lashes long and your standards high ❤️

 

Together with Catherine, we went for one day make-up class at Taman Ratu. It was easy, since it's only for day kind of setting. The only difference would be the amount of concealer I had to put to create this look but my most concern was how thick and heavy my eyelashes are. It ain't cool at all but that's just part of learning. 

 

Overall, the session was pretty easy to understand since I know most of it anyway. It was enjoyable.

Carrot Cake đŸ„•

I have a thing for baking, I haven't had the time to bake for the past couple of years and to encourage myself to come back to the baking world. 

I managed to join Maison's Bleu, Kelapa Gading to make Carrot Cake. The journey from South Jakarta is a hassle to the North but it was worth the trip, especially it was on a Saturday. 

 

I managed to have this shot taken while garnishing my very own carrot cake. If you're wondering, it's walnuts that I was assembling.

It looks pretty neat, I look like pro with the apron but thankfully it turned out awesome and edible. It's a fun and memoriable experience to do this kind of thing from time to time.

Ohana đŸ‘ŽđŸ»đŸ‘”đŸ»

Every family has a story to tell... Welcome to Ours ❤
 

It's 10th of April, my aunt's birthday, Fonny. We planned this dinner from months away to gather everyone in Jakarta to celebrate her birthday. She lives in Melbourne, Australia so it was a challenge but it turned out to be as easy as ABC. 

 

I love how cute the decoration is. It's simple yet classy, not too much and not too plain. We took pictures as a family a few times but these two shots are my favourite more than the rest.

 

Anyway, I couldn't resist but to add my #OOTD for that day. Just in case you're wondering, it's not a book. It's a clutch.

Hello Kitty Cafe ❤️

My love has no jurisdiction for Hello Kitty, it's limitless. I love Kitties with all my heart eventhough I'm in my early 20s, I still use lots of Kitties as my accessories, phone cases, plushes, bags and pouches too. I don't care the criticism I got from people who sees me using so much Kitties, I love it and I'll use it.


One of the thing I haven't been able to explore after going to Sanrio Puroland is visiting Kitty Cafe around the world. However, the dream has finally come true bit by bit. I get to visit the Hello Kitty Cafe in Bangkok sometime in March during my Perfumery Training at Perfumer's World. 



Pad Thai, Cheese & Ham Sandwich. Tobiko Seaweed Fries; Red Velvet Cake & Milkshakes (above)

Then, I get to visit my second Kitty Cafe in early April, the cafe is located in Pantai Indah Kapuk, North Jakarta. 

 

The one in Bangkok has tons of menu to offer, from light bites to heavy meal like the ones I ordered. Jakarta's pretty limited, they've got only light bites and a few desserts option like one I had, which wasn't that exciting to see anyway. 

 

Kaya Bun with Regal Ice Blended and Coffee Ice Blended



It's definitely a new experience for me. I love experiencing something new especially when it comes to Hello Kitty and other things that I grow to love.

Suddenly Summer ☀️

Aside from all the Pempek madness, I ended that week with a Bali weekend getaway. You'll never go wrong with Bali. Never, never and ever. I had the chance to dress all summery-look, paired with my favorite accessories brand, Jasmine Tease and my bag from Hermes with monster charm from Fendi. 

 

That's just my accessories, here's my outfit to create new memories in Bali. The ultimate summer look.

This time around, Katamama, a small boutique hotel, right across Potato Head is our choice for this trip and the other one was Ritz Carlton Nusa Dua. Settling myself at the hotel with mojitos to start the day was a whole new level of awesomeness. 

 

Life isn't complete without Ice Cream. That's a statement from me. My kind of statement which is completely true. It's my routine to at least visit Lyck Lig once everytime I'm in Bali. So far, my pick stay the same from the past years. It's Salted Caramel with popcorn, oreo and ricebubbles. 


I dressed myself with a little less color, but to be honest my handbag is rainbow all out. Oh well!

I know I look short, I can't help it. It's who I am, a blessing or a curse. I'm not quite sure. I ended the day with a simple yet casual dinner at Potato Head. I ordered sandwich and chamomile tea for dinner which was nothing special at all for me. 


The next day was totally awesome. I had an amazing breakfast to start the day. Courtesy of Katamama Hotel, I was really thrilled. It was nothing out of proportion but it made my day so much better. In case you're wondering, it's Bubur Ayam with vegetable juices on the side. 


Finishing up breakfast, the time has come to finally move out to the next hotel and adventure. As usual, before doing anything else. #OOTD is a must.

 


To appreciate my stay at Katamama, they got a bracelet as a souvenir. How cool is that! Will come back for sure. 

 


The time has come to move from Katamama to Ritz-Carlton Nusa Dua. I was welcomed with the monkeys from the nearby forest or jungle. It's not sarcasm. 


 

I had a chance to explore the hotel during my stay and managed to take another #OOTD in the afternoon before dinner came. 

 

Ending the last day in Bali with a three hours perfume workshop in Ritz Carlton Hotel with Nora Gasprani. I learned something new in my three hours journey and managed to make two different types of perfume as gifts to bring back home. 

 

The idea of leaving a place you grow to love is hard, tough and the stake is higher than life. But, all good vacays must come to an end. Life's not all rainbow, sweets and nice. It has ups and downs, love and hate, and most importantly, WORK does exist. 

 

さようăȘらバăƒȘ!

Drunk-High up in the SKY ☁️

I have a confession to make which is totally funny, scary yet thrilling at the same time. The reason of this confession is to blame myself for being utterly lame but let's face it, most people nowdays might experience this as well. 

I've only been to a few places in Indonesia which is totally embarassing and weird since I live in Indonesia but I tend to travel overseas 9.5 out of 10. I've been to Bandung, Bali, Jakarta and Makassar, short list huh? Isn't it pathetic? Anyway, here's to visiting elsewhere. Cheers! đŸŸ

Business trip ain't the best excuse? It is for me, at least this time it is. With trips from the company, nowadays I get to go to local cities and experience them the local lifestyle firsthand which is ... awesome. It was a two days and one night bussiness trip with plenty of time to explore the city. 

I packed all black and white themed outfit for this trip, since I could only carry a cabin-sized luggage I had to choose the colour scheme I have to get used to for that particular two days trip. I brought two outfits, excluding the one I'm using to start the day.

With that classy lady look, I managed to survive a 40minutes flight from Jakarta to Lampung. It was ridiciously fast. It's like 10 mins for take off and 10 mins for descent. The 20mins for stretching your legs, adjusting headrest, toilet break and a few bites of snacks then Voila. Here we are!

I tried three different restaurants of Pempek then at the end of the day, I was drunk and high on Pempek. It was definitely too much. Too much for me in a day. I love Pempek with all my heart but three times a day with a break of one hour each was totally barbaric. The agony was pretty much clear, it's like taking antibiotics of three pills or capcules a day but with Pempek, don't ever try that. If I could turn back time and eat them in different days, I would. Maybe next time. For me, it's life teaching me something new. 

We tried Pempek 123, Pempek Nori (Cheese-filled-Pempek) & Pempek 88 (Belida Fish). I forgot to take pictures of the first two, I only did instastory on it. Here's a glimpse of Pempek 88:

 

Ending the Pempek misson with dessert on top of the hill with Brownies and the majestic city overview. It was pretty chilly which is amazing. I love the view, it was pretty similar to Greece at sunset. 

 

Then, dinner was at a famous seafood restaurant, it was good. To end end day, Martabak  was at its finest. Psst.. it's one of my favorite (cheat) food/snack.

I couldn't remember all the details since I tend to forget a lot of things along the way but I know one thing for sure. I went to the gym the next morning for an hour before devouring Bakmi for breakfast. Lunch was at the same seafood restaurant but we ordered Crabs, it was antagonizing. I have no problem with Crabs but taking the meats out to eat them bit by bit is a whole lot of homework. In other words, laziness overrules. I couldn't resist but to take #OOTD pic before flying off. I'm sure I'll come back to visit Lampung again in the future.
