Red Kutex Haul ;)

Yeaaay, I've new nail polish babies coming, all comes in RED (for sure) and im so excited to try them all ;)

As im not an expertise in nail polish thingy, thus I can't describe as good as other nail polish goddess' review that i've seen and read on the Internet. My review will be, well..very less-informative (maybe yaa) but I'm learning though :D

The first red nail polish i bought is OPI - Color So Hot It Berns. I bought this directly at the OPI outlet in Jakarta for IDR 180.000,- (it's very expensive i know, but it's an instantly love at the first sight, so w/o thinking too much, i bought it right away). And later on i don't regret it! CSHiB is amazing. It's bright, it's red and it's just good (i told you i cant describe perfectly). And one thing for sure that this color really suits my not-so-bright skin color.

My second and third red nail polishes were bought trough online shop. Its cheaper for sure, because its only cost me an IDR. 110.000,- for the OPI-Big Apple Red and IDR 80.000,- for the China Glaze-Ruby Pumps. Even thought I need to wait for about 2-3 weeks until it arrives in my office..but its surely worth the wait.

I definitely loooveee my last 2 nail polishes, they both looks supeer gorgeous! At first im kinda worried if BAR would looked similar to CSHiB, but thank God it's completely different. In my "nubie" opinion, BAR has a deeper, rich and dark red which reminds me of a fresh imported red apple in the fancy fruit stall :p what a suitable name indeed :p meanwhile CSHiB is more bright and seems to has a jelly-ish finish..(yah begitu deh)

Maybe my pictures can speak for it self :D 

The Comparison ;)

Lastly, CG-Ruby Pumps
(I haven't try it yet, but i know it will look awesooome, maybe ill do the manis tonight.

Since im too lazy and too sleepy to do the manis, i finally decided to wear the CG on top of my BAR, and cover it up with Seche Vite top coat to give more shine. The result is ok, but its too dark i guess, however, i loovvveee the glitter a lot!

PS: I also bought a new base coat from OPI-Nail Envy, i read so much (as always) about this amazing base coat. Every OPI Store in Jakarta sell it, however the price is 3 times pricey-er than if i bought it thru online Mall IDR 360.000,- OLShop IDR 160.000,- geezzzz

I'm Officially 30 ;">

First day being 30 feels...OLD! Yups...welcome the big 3-0, the Dirty Thirty. Thirty is a particular special birthday that grants me full entrance in the realm of official adulthood.

Ga kerasa udah berumur 30 ajaah..makin tuwiiir bow, masih banyak yang musti di achieved, tpi Insya Allah satu hal udah perlahan tapi pasti menjadi semakin jelas :D


To celebrate this special day, gw berencana untuk exploring Bandung, well it's only 3 places to be exact! (bukan explore atuh namanya). Pengennya sih bisa kesana-kemari, but it's a long wiken period, Bandung udah pasti padeet, maceet, ruweet. Thus rencana hanya tinggal rencana dan kita lebih memilih untuk ke tempat2 yang searah jalan pulang dan berusaha menghindari daerah tengah kota. (padahal moo shopping T_T)

Awalnya, kita sepakat mau having lunch di Padma Hotel Bandung. When I first saw their website, I know I must go there. Their view and ambiance are definitely to die for. Walopun cuma liat gambarnya lewat internet doank, tapi itu udah cukup bikin gw terngiler2 pingin kesana. Sepanjang jalan gw udah cengar-cengir bahagia ngebayangin serunya duduk2 di lounge nya sambil ngopi, nyemil cake and chit-chat with BBP. Tapiii semua angan2 itu huancur luebur gara-gara jalan yang menuju ke Hotel macet total dan stuck ga gerak! Ga mau buang2 waktu plus ga pingin ngerusak hari karena sutres macet, alhasil kita putbal ke tempat laiin. Sedih and kucewaaa berat akuuh, tapi next time I WILL GO THERE!

Dari yang niatnya mau nyemil2 cantik di restoran gengges, eeehhh tiba-tiba aja si BBP malah ngajakin makan kambiing aja gituuh :ebuseh: Berhubung udah laperto, akhirnya kita putbal dan melipir ke Kambing Bakar Cairo di daerah Geger Kalong.

To be frank, gw ga pernah suka yang namanya makan daging kambing, it tastes and smells awkward. But emang dasarnya udah laper berat and BBP maksa2 gw untuk nyobain, yaudin pasrah lah gw mesen seporsi juga. Daaaan, Ketagihan!!!hahahha..seriusan, ini daging kambing terenak yang pernah gw coba, empuks, ga bau samsek, pinggirannya garing dan gurih ples sambelnya nampol! Ga percuma deh gagal ke Padma :D

Ditempat ini disediain 2 type porsi daging sesuai kemauan dan "kemampuan makan" pelanggan. Same like porsi nasi di warung padang gitu deh, ada yang nasi 1 dan nasi 1/2. Kalo gw sih pasti pilih porsi setengah which is 250gr (termasuk tulang) and kalo si BBP? (jangan ditanya dia mah) pilih yang paling besar, 500gr (bilangnya sih itu berat krn tulang, pdhal kelihatan jelas daging semuah ituh *tepokjidat)

Dan kedua piring kita bersih sih sih..sangking enaknya (apa lapeer yah?) :p

Alhamdulillah setelah kenyang, kita melanjutkan trip berikutnya ke Congo untuk ngupi-ngupi. This is my first time kesini dan when I arrived there, I immediately felt in love with this place. Tempatnya adem, asri, tenang, quite, peaceful and the weather was awesome.

There are 2 separated areas di Congo, Indoor and outdoor. Kita terpaksa pilih yang outdoor karena area indoor ada minimum purchasenya sebesar satu juta. Nah berhubung kita cuma berdua, gak mungkin-lah bisa abis sampe segitu (kec ditake away) dan juga kemahaalan (irits), so dengan berat hati kita diarahkan ke area outdoor yang letaknya ga jauh dari situ. It appeared that Outdoor area ga kalah cuantik dibandingin indoor, disini suasananya malah berasa lebih santai dan open-ing, dan dari area ini juga justru kita bisa foto2 bangunan utamanya, lebih bagus lah pokoknya IOO (in our opinion).

So we decided untuk menghabiskan the rest of the afternoon time here untuk nyemil, ngopi dan kerjaa...yeesss..kita masih sempet2nya buka laptop untuk cek email, kerja dan ngurusin tiket balik boss gw yang gajeboo ituuh..ampooon deeh :(

But luckily, suasananya lagi baguss, so gw brusaha kelarin urusan si boss and lanjut nikmatin udara dan pemandangan sore itu bersama BBP.

And these are what we're ordered...cuma cemilan "ringan" (kata BBP). 

Strawberry pancake with vanilla ice cream, singkong goreng bertabur keju, milkshake coklat topped with strawberry jam and vanilla ice cream, cappuccino and black coffee :D and in total it doesn't cost us more than 150K :D

On to the photo2 session ;)

Puas nongkrong, foto2, nyemil, menikmati sore sampe langit mau gelap, akhirnya we decided to go back home to Jakarta. But sebelumnya tetep mampir dulu ke Amanda Brownies buat oleh2, ini kegiatan kudu, musti, wajib kalo gw ke Bandung :P

And that's it, tomorrow I'll be living my live as a 30-ish woman but still think she's a 25-ish girl in the inside :p

And overall, that day was nothing but an extraordinary day to me...thank you Allah SWT :)

Im Addicted to Instagram, Pinterest and 9Gag

The title already speaks for it self, because they are all taking my life away :p

There is no way i can stand not to open one of these links, not even for a day. I love how i can find a lot of gorgeous pictures, photography, arts, fashions..etc etc and i also love how 9Gag could me laughing out loud..super silly and hilarious comics..EPIC

Instagram is a free photo sharing application that allows users to take a photo, apply a digital filter, then share it on a variety of social networking services including Instagram's own. A distinctive feature confines photos into a square shape, in homage to both the Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid cameras. This contrasts with the 4:3 aspect ratio more typically used by mobile device cameras.

Pinterest is a pinboard-styled social photo sharing website. The service allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections. The site's mission statement is to "connect everyone in the world through the 'things' they find interesting." The website has proven especially popular among women.

its easier to just read it than to

Trip to Lembang, Bandung

I never thought that planning a holiday in Bandung on a long weekend period could be this difficult! And this is exactly what I encountered last week.

Finding a place to stay in is the most stressful part. All hotels, inns, hostels, kost2an (u named it) are all fully booked! If there's a room available, the rates could be double than the regular publish-rate and most likely the place was not located in a prominent area, which means it's far, difficult and spend a lot of time to reached.

My initial plan was to stay in Lembang, Bandung. This area is famous for its amazing landscape and refreshing climate. It's a cool mountainous town North of Bandung where we can see the whole Bandung City view and beautiful panoramas on the way.

Since there are not many place to stay in Lembang, our choice was increasingly shrinking :( from around 10 decent hotels with 3 or 4 stars, now only left 2 places to choose. Stressful indeed :(

But thank God  I managed to get it through Agoda at Pesona Bamboe (Agaiiin). This is the exact same place I stayed from my trip with ICO Team, and since I know this place is nice and clean and affordable and most importantly its available. I guess I wouldn't hesitate to book it right away then.

When we finally arrived at Bandung, the first place I want to visit is Bandung Super Mall (not mall agaain) Well, this is a very last minute decisions since I need to buy something and it's also a good chance for me to see it :P It was a very huge mall, maybe similar to Plaza Senayan in Jakarta, there are lots of branded shops as well there and I even lucky to get a pair of discounted Levi's Jeans.

From BSM, we go directly to Dago Resort area.

For me, Bandung is almost the same like Jakarta, traffic like hell and the street filled with B-Plat cars, we stressed and worried if were not able to reach the restaurant on time...but luckily BBP knows the area so well, He knows exactly which road should we take to avoid the chaotic jam.

Finally we arrived at Rumah Payung Resto at 11 p.m and with fully confident I said that I already make a reservation by telephone, but they said they didn't note it, however if we insist to eat there, they still have a table for us. Because I dont want to ruin the night, I just skipped the miskom and immediately chose the best table with the best view instead.

After being seated, we opened the menu, chose the menu, light a cigarette while enjoying the view, until....all of sudden I shocked and laugh at my self! BBP curiously saw me and asked what happened...and then with silly face I told him that I just realized that this is NOT the place I have booked....No wonder its not as good as I imagine! Geez, how can I be so stupid?! But what can I do? we're already there and its almost 00.00 to 25 March. So we spent the rest of the night laughing at it, all the time..Big Time!!

Silly indeed, but we're happy, I'm happy and the foods also makes us happy, we didn't complain at all with The Iga Bakar and Kambing Guling, it tasted superb. Or maybe its because we're starving and stress caused by a "misleading" and bad GPS signal that made us lost for almost an hour? Well, we dont know which one is right, coz what we know it tasted yummy.

This is where we ate
"Rumah Payung Bandung"

And this is where I make the booking
"Stone Cafe Bandung"

To make it more ironic, the restaurant I booked was actually located "only" 5minutes away from the restaurant we ate :(((

*STU to the PID :(

Again, since I didn't bring any decent camera, all cellphones are low battery, we're hungry, lost, tired endeblah endeblih...akhirnya gw comot aja gambar orang buat gambaran...

Pre and Pasca H-Day

Baru sadar udah hampir 4 hari gw gak isi blog, to be honest its because i cant think of anything these past few days, stressful by my demanding boss with his unstable schedule that are quite overwhelmed me...

However, i need to stick to the plan, coz I've been wanting this trip like forever, thus..i wont let anything ruin it.

In this special day of mine, i want it to be spent in a different place, different ambiance and different activity, no hura-hura, no party-party, no seneng2 yang ga guna..i want it to be quite, serene, peacefully so by the time the clock reach to 00.00 to 25 March, i could use it to pray to Allah SWT for all His Amazing Blessing.

Then I choose Lembang,'s the right place to avoid keramaian and what i like the most about it, is that i can see an amazing view from here.

View to Bandung City

Photos taken from Here and Here, as i didnt have time to take pict and i dont bring any decent camera minjeem yaaa :D

Happy Birthday To Me ;)

My never ending pray will always be..

Allah SWT will always keep me Healthy, Happy, Wealthy, Success, Bersyukur, Selalu ingat dan dekat denganNYA, terwujud semua cita2, mimpi2 dan keinginannya..selalu selalu yang terbaik in everything and anything :)

Amiin Ya Rabbal Allamin :)

Welcome no 3 coz im officially 30!!!

Vaseline Petroleum Jelly Uses

I heard a lot about this product uses and how amazing it can do to our life...bukan bermaksud lebay siih, but it is works amazingly! But too bad, they don't sell it anymore here in Jakarta, thus once i saw one of the FD member sell it on MP, i order it right away.

At first i bought it to soften my dry skin especially my cuticles, although i'm also using L'Occitane hand cream which apparently works amazingly too, however, that one can only be used for hands and to achieved a better result, i decided to use them both and later on i know that Vaseline could do more than that!

After googling, i found out that it has tons of uses. Im not regret paying IDR 140k for a huge jar of 100% pure petroleum jelly that can be use for almost everything!

Here are some uses of it...and im sure the list wouldn't stop here...

1. Put a coat on your eyelashes before you go to bed. Lots of people swear by this - and say it will make your lashes grow longer and thicker over time.

2. Put a coat of Vaseline on your feet at night, cover them with socks and wake up to softer feet - every day!

3. Put Vaseline on your elbows every day - they will stay soft!

8. Melt Vaseline and one chocolate chip in the microwave, mix and let resolidify for chocolate lip gloss!

9. Maintains perfume scent longer when applied at perfume points before spritzing the perfume.

10. Can be used as a moisturizer for acne sufferers (it is a misconception that it clogs pores)

11. Moisturizes severe dry skin

12. Use Vaseline on your knees to prevent that dry, ashy look

13. Mix with sea salts to make a scrub!

14. Applying Vaseline on your teeth prevents lips from sticking to teeth for celebrities and contestants in beauty pageants who smile a lot

15. Applied on teeth before applying lipstick prevents lipstick from sticking on them

16. Massage, baby!

17. Warmed up can be used as a night cream

18. Makeup remover

19. Protects skin exposed to adverse weather

20. Applied under eye shadow it can create a shiny effect

21. Applied on cheeks for a dewy look

22. Can be used to smooth and soothe skin after shaving

23. Used in manicures under cuticles

24. Gets rid of dry skin lines which can arise from washing

25. Lubricates ear lobes and helps to make earring insertion easy and painless

26. Keeps fingernails pliable and resilient

27. Use with your lipstick to create a cream blusher for your cheeks

28. Helps to ease off stuck on rings

29. Tames unruly eyebrows

30. Defines eyelashes and leaves them with a glossy and waterproof look

31. Conditions scalp pre-shampooing

32. Can help prevent chaffing

33. Aids with healing after cosmetic surgery procedures

34. Reduces scaling and itching associated with dandruff

35. Theraputic when applied to lesions caused by poison ivy

36. Can help improve condition of those with atopic eczema

37. Helps heal and protect new tattoos

38. Can protect against harmful hair dyeing, perming and straightening chemicals when used as a mask around the hairline

39. Use a tiny dab to put a quick shine on your shoes and bags

40. Smear a tiny bit on your hands and scrunch through your hair for a choppy look

41. Use just a touch on the ends of your hair to hide dry and split ends

42. Remove makeup stains from clothing

43. Rub Vaseline on the neck of your nail polish bottles and they won’t get stuck to the caps

44. Make your week old nail polish look new again - rub a small dab over the polish.

45. Use a touch of Vaseline mixed with powder eyeshadow pigment to make new colors, or a more solid eyeshadow that won’t get all over your face when you put it on.

46. Stretch your favorite lotion by mixing it with Vaseline.

47. Put Vaseline on your lips, leave it a few minutes, then scrub your lips with a toothbrush to exfoliate and leave them SO smooth

48. Remove false eyelash glue from your lash line

49. Apply a small amount on dry spots on your body before fake tanning lotions are applied, and prevent uneven tanning!

50. Generously apply Vaseline all over before taking flights to combat associated dryness

Really a Total-In-One-Amazingly-Product...It sure is my new HG :D

Monday, March 12, 2012


Gak perlu lagi lah ya dijelasin, gw yakin semua orang tau arisan itu apa. Kalo buat gw arisan itu artinya nabung sekaligus silaturahmi. Arisan juga bisa dijadiin ajang ngumpulin orang2 yang susaaaah banget disuruh ngumpulnya! Yang pasti arisan itu banyak fungsinya, tapi semua tergantung "niat awal" para pesertanya aja :p

Nah arisan kali ini bisa dibilang adalah "arisan hura2" kenapa begitu? karena tujuan awalnya semata2 biar bsa sering ketemu setidaknya sebulan sekali just untuk ngobrol2, gossip2, ketawa2, makan, minum, hangout, ngocok arisan dan pulang (arisan sehaat :P). Dan juga karena peserta arisannya ndak banyak, kali ini yang ikutan hanya 7 orang, yupss..only me, Ijah, Icha, Epoy, Bebs, Melinda and temen Icha namnya Indah. 

Sebenernya arisan itu paling enak kalo pesertanya banyak, jadinya kan semakin seru dan udah pasti dapet uang arisannya juga semakin gede, tapi beda kasusnya ma kita...secara susah ngumpulin orang lagi dan rata2 mereka juga bilangnya udah ikut arisan yang lain, jadilah hanya kita ber-7 yang lanjut..Untungnya masing2 orang bisa ikutan 2 sampe 3 nama, so biarpun cuma ber7, uang arisannya tetep dapet lumayaan doonk...yeaayy :D

Yang namanya arisan hura2, ya kumpul2nya juga cuma buat seru2an aja, that is why penting banget kita nyari tempat ketemuan yang bisa buat ngobrol nyaman berjam-jam, makanannya enak dan ambiancenya nyaman.

Nah bulan ini kita sepakat untuk janjian di Casa-Kemang. Gw sih seneng banget bisa ketemuan disitu karena lokasinya deket dari kostan, selain itu tempatnya juga ok, gak terlalu crowded, gak terlalu terbuka, cozy, affordable and most importantly the food is yummmy.

That night i ordered Grill Beef Caramel Steak, it tasted super yummy and i also tasted my friend's food, she ordered Fried Rice..sumpaah nasi gorengnya enaak buangeet..apa jangan2 karena gw laper ya, so semuanya berasa enak? :p  Kelar makan kita lanjut buat ngocok arisannya..dan yang kebagian arisan bulan ini adalaah GW...yeaaay..alhamdulillah :))

Ps : biarpun cuma ber7, tetep aja ada yang ga bisa dateng (epoy and indah), ampuun deehhh sibuuk seemuuuaa #tepokjidat

Talking bout second arisan, our first gathering was held at De Luca Plaza Senayan, lagi2 the decision made dari suara terbanyak dan lagi2 gw mah ngikutt ajaah.

I like this place's ambiance and the crowd, selain itu kayaknya so-so laah! The food i ordered tasted and look far from my expectation, i'm craving for big and heavy portion of pasta covered with lots of meat and cream sauce etc etc (ceritanya kan lagi lapeer!), so after the waitress explained my menu i ordered it and ternyata...this is what i got :(

"Plain-notaste-sepi-kering-gakngenyangin-but-lookhealty" Pasta :(

I dont know either me making a wrong choice on the menu or is it because the waitress didn't explained me be honest, gw udah mau marah aja saat itu, but berhubung udah lapeer sampe keubun-ubun, i skip the tense and continue eating it...*sambilmanyunandngedumel..blaaah :(

Well, atleast my drink looks cute..(menghibur diri) dan tetep ngerasa kenyang karena grecokin makanannya Bebs yang kliatan sangaat yuummy..:((

Arisyoong Team minus Indah ;)
