INDONESIA : KAMI TIDAK TAKUT, JAKARTA BERANI

Probably some of you who live in the other side of the world (could be in Europe or America) seems not knowing this country. Some of my friends who study abroad told me that. The people there always wondering where Indonesia is.

Indonesia is one of developing country here in South East Asia and we are located in Asia. Indonesia is an archipelago country. It has thousands of island. Even many islands that unpopulated yet. If you're still wondering where is Indonesia and what does it look like, just think about Cuba, or other archipelago countries, Indonesia is just like them but so much bigger ad wider.

Indonesia is the most complicated country i've ever known and lived but i do love living here in Indonesia. It's like nowhere place to go to live, but when you know deeper about this country, you'll be falling in love with Indonesia.

Actually many things that i can tell about Indonesia, or probably one post is not enough to write about it. Specifically in this post, i just wanna tell you about an incident that happened here recently. If you read news, Jakarta, Indonesia's capital city got bomb attacks by terrorists. 6 people were volunteered to do a suicidal bomb which i don't understand why they did that. Probably they got their brains washed, i don't know.

But yea, it happened here in Indonesia. Starbucks Sarinah Plaza was bombed and also the Police Station near Sarinah Plaza. Gunshots also happened between the terrorist and the police. Such a thrill moment there. Thanks to social media,  the news spread really fast. Jakarta people become more aware about what happened. All the workers near the incident are allowed to come home or to find safer place.

One hour after the incident, Indonesian habits came out. Funny but this is Jakarta, this is Indonesia.
Jakarta people were watching the incident just like watching movies, they are really near with the incident, they ate snacks on the street, they are really curious about what happened there so they waited near the incident area. They took selfies, they took pictures, sudden all the people become journalists. Funny but again this is Jakarta, this is Indonesia.

One hour after incident, Indonesia's graphic designers are ready to make a lot of memes and other cool pictures with #PRAYFORJAKARTA on it. And thanks again to social media, all the memes spread really fast. Weird, but those are Indonesia's reaction to anything especially hot events that happened at that time.

So, in my opinion, Indonesian are cool. I bet when the tragedy happened we all were scared but we are easy to get up and come brave to face the tragedy.
I guess that's Indonesia's natural instinct, LOL. But thats what happened here.

Anyway, still my prayers goes to all the victims of Sarinah bombed. It taught us to be more cautious of anything suspicious and be more careful.

See you again on my next post ! This is only my intermezzo about what happened recently.

FIRST OUTFIT in 2016

Hi readers !

So what's up ? How's your New Year ?
It's already 2 weeks in 2016, so what do you feel ?
Honestly, i feel time chasing me even more, you know when you get older, sometime it is what you feel.
I have my resolution to be more punctual and take more responsibility. Just hopefully it works out for me, at least when i'm working :p

Anyway, here it is my outfits that i wore last Sunday. This gorgeous dress is from new Indonesia's local brand, Lec.Ture. You can check it through instagram @lec.ture
I love the details of this dress, like the turtle neck details and the big armholes.
Actually you can wear it in two ways, either you can wear it as a long top or a dress. Just like me, i wore it as a top. I mix it with my Forever 21 black leggings. It's a simple way to look chic in monochrome but not too much, but hey it never goes wrong with monochrome, right ?


Almost forgot, i'm going to blog more, gonna do many reviews of a product, it could be a beauty product or fashion, i just want to share something deeper about my thoughts, my taste of music, foods, travels, and many more.
So hopefully you guys stay tune here at my blog ;)

See you soon !

BEST FIVE AND LEARNING PROCESS

Hi there all !
Before that, i wanna wish you a Happy New Year !
Just may you accomplish your achievements in 2016.

Well anyway, i know i've been a terrible blogger or writer, i just forgot the meaning or my vision of writing blog. Once i thought i need a bigger space to share my ideas or my daily outfits or even anything which happened in my life. But in fact, i forgot it, i forgot actually what's my purpose to have a blog in the first place. Now i know i was wrong, so i'm trying my best to write as much as possible. And i know instagram made us lazier, especially me, to write blog. But i realise, this is the bigger space than instagram, blog it's not about review, advertisement, but i think it comes more personal. So, i decided to write blog again. I wanna write fashion but not specifically in fashion, i wanna write anything i want to share with you guys.
Hopefully, i can achieve that *crossfingers*

So, lets get into the mainstream best nine ! You know instagram made this best nine so happening lately. But actually it counts based on likes.
Well, i wanna have my bestnine in my own version which happened in 2015. But i think i only could make it to five hehehe. So check em out.
And here they are, my best five in 2015 :

1. Days with Martin
Well actually we're close since 2014, but in this 2015 we're getting closer and he just like mentor to me. Not only as a boyfriend, he becomes a best friend, someone who really supports and pushes you to become a better person especially when I'm down he's there to remind me everyday to not give up on something i love or passionate about. He's tough, he always gives me a tough love, and yeah it works for me.


2. Travelling around Indonesia
In the year before, i rarely go traveling, perhaps only go to somewhere i know about, like Bali, Malang, or Manado. Even when i go there, i always spend the time in the same places over again. It's kinda boring. But, you know in 2015 i made my traveling list checked. I made it to Lampung, specifically went to Pahawang Island to snorkel, i went to Dieng, i climbed Mount Prau. It was the most beautiful morning i've ever seen in my entire life. And FYI, Mt. Prau has the best golden sunrise here in Indonesia. So far it's my best experience of traveling in 2015, i wish i could go to Flores or Raja Ampat in 2016. hehe


3. Sphere Society was born
If you followed me on unstagram, you must be know that this is my clothing brand. I had struggle to make it happen. Through ups and downs, so i launched my brand @sphere.society in August 2015. I know it's still a lot works to do to make it a successful brand. But i'm grateful to have Sphere Society in my life.



4. Join JFW 2016
And yup, my Sphere Society was joining Jakarta Fashion Week 2016. I made another exclusive collection. It was great and successful, some of my friends really love my collection and it paid off.



5. Kanye and Hugo (Kygo)
2015 was my first time to have a dog in my life. I always have cats, but lately i feel dogs are more loveable and friendly. So, me and my boyfriend decided to have dogs instead of one only hehe. Kanye is the French Bulldog, and Hugo is the Pug. They both are males. Just love them so much.
