Beauty Vlog Addiction 

The good things about living in digital age is we can learn anything almost from everyone. Having a fondness about makeup is just not enough for me if I cannot apply them to my face. And I really want to do it properly.

Taking a full makeup class or professional makeup class can sometimes very pricey. So I started to learn from the YouTube channel. There are a lot of beauty vlogger out there to learn to. And many of them give a very useful know-what and how to apply make up. Each person have their own style of doing makeup. Like if I watch a vlogger from a westerners, they tend to be bold and dare to play with a wide range of colors. On the other hand, vlogger from Asian country include, me in Indonesia, has tendency to be more natural and use a more neutral colour. And I like to watch them all. Hihihihi…

For skin care, I really interested in korean skin care routine, so I tend to watch a vlog from korean (English speaker of course) vlogger.

If I can mention a specific channel that I watched nowadays, here are those channel :

  • Suhay Salim
  • Christen Dominique
  • Abel Cantika
  • Pony makeup
  • MakeUpByCamila2
  • Joan Kim
  • Jkissa


These are the channel that I subscribed to. I can watch it a whole day if I have spare time. Even sometimes when my husband is a sleep, I start to watch it again hehehehehee.

It seems so easy for them to get a nice and smooth result. And from that I know I still have to learn a looooot. At the same time they motivate me to be better.

Planning Our First Trip

Mid July 2016. It has been a long time since I, myself, planned to travel abroad. Especially, I always want to travel with my life partner. 

Finally, we’re able to realize it! Our first trip to KOREA!! Yeeeaaaay!!!!

When we eagerly receive our yearly bonuses, we booked our ticket to Korea in an instant. We did go to some travel fairs, some Korean Travel exhibitions, and we ultimately decided and booked our ticket in end of July 2016 for April 2017. We booked quite early before our departure with intention to get a lower fare. But as a matter of fact, when we read other blogs about flight tickets to Seoul, our fare are surely not the best deal out there. Nonetheless, we regret nothing, because we took our time to plant plan this, we saved our precious dimes, and we expect to go on a comfortable trip. 

So we booked Airasia tickets to Seoul, return, for two people. We buy a tickets with one transit in Kuala Lumpur for 3 hours, before we continue our trip to Seoul. Here are our tickets and hotel details :

  • AirAsia flight tickets for 2 people, return, IDR 10.000.000 (exclude meal and baggage)
  • Fraser Namdaemun Hotel Deluxe room, 3 nights, IDR +- 5.000.000 

We didn’t book any tour services as this will be our own trip, without any particular place to go. Our itinerary is ours only. 

What we’ve been doing after booking the tickets and hotel was to throw a siege over any references about any attractive place on Seoul and make a list of them.

Once the everything is done, (which is not yet), we’ll make a budget for our trip so we’ll not spend excessively (although I’m not very sure bout this) 

Ah one thing we forget to mention is about the visa. Honestly, we don’t submit our visa request yet, until today. 😣

We still have a lot of homework to do to prepare our trip. So, you’ll soon will see our story about visa submission, itinerary, and our budget plan. And after our trip maybe we’ll share our pics, expenses, and a how-to-travel around Seoul. 

See you soon 😊



A New Playground

09 February 2017. Although I am obsessed with order, this time I won’t talk about my past stories. Instead I will talk about all of the things that goes around me at the moment and going forward.

So, shall I begin? 

First of all, I am a person who don’t have any particular fondness about something. I don’t have any hobbies. I’m not overly dislike nor overly obsessed with something (except order  i guess). Well, guess I’m just a boring person.

I always nag at Ragil, because of his hobbies, that according to myself are waste of money. He love gadgets and anything related to motorbike btw. Every time i always find his new “things”. Then i always question, what is it for? do you need it? you need a space to keep it, you have to tidying up your things babe, etc, etc, etc. Finally, I think he’s bored with all the nagging, and he doesn’t bring anything new to home for a while. But you know what, he keeps buy things, but now he doesn’t bring that home. He keeps it in his office -___-. Once, I know he’s already had those for a while, and when i found out he just wore his best silly smile so i didn’t get upset. And yes, he cannot keep me angry for a long time.

Shortly, i never know what it feels when you have a hobby. Things that you really like. And it can make you happy when you working on it. I think hobby is a luxurious thing to have. Until….., the pass year.

If you’ve read my introduction in the about page, i mentioned about my fondness of makeup. Yes… I really love make up. I love all the colors, i love to play with it, i like how it can turn your face more pretty, more perfect, hide your complexion and accentuate your already perfect face. It is a fun thing to play with.

I always have an interest in makeup actually. It started in my college time. But i don’t really buy many makeup. Only the basic. As a college student, I don’t have too much money to spend and makeup can be very expensive. So, makeup for me is just a tool to prepare myself in case i don’t have a chance to take a bath in the morning hahahahaa… cause by wearing powder and lip balm, i can look less crumpled.

My very first makeup is an eyeliner. I learnt to wear an eyeliner from my cousin. She wears it everyday and one day she put it on me. At that time i was fascinated by the look my face became when i applied an eyeliner. My eyes turned out to be bigger and it looked like the additional liner at the top of my eye line makes my eyes bolder. Like a painting with its frame. The eyeliner framed my eyes. From then I start adding eyeliner to my routine basic makeup.  

I think that’s all for this time. There’s a lot I want to talk about. I don’t want it to be packed in 1 blog. So, let’s continue in another stories. 




The Beginning

Mid August, 2007.

I’m a little bit obsessed with a perfect timeline order, so i will start with the beginning of our togetherness. 

I met Ragil in the beginning of my College time. It was the first day of college orientation. We sat next to each other.
Yeah we did. And the other couple who sat next to us, Tahta and Nicha, also got married. Coincidence? :p

You know, i kinda have this kind of stereotypes of guys who chose pharmacy as a major. and yep, me and him was in the same faculty and took the same major. I thought, most of pharmacy guys are less manly and less good-looking as another tech guy. Well, it almost true. Anyway, my first impression of him was quite good. Honestly, mostly because he’s tall hehe.
For the record, I did tried to be one of the tech guy. But fate put me in the pharmacy road instead. Well, one of The Lord’s bigger reason, might be to make me met you. 

I often hung out with boys instead of my girl friends. and it included him. But if i thought more, we rarely talk to each other; let alone having an intense of interaction. most of the time we hung out in group of 5 or more people. It became more awkward to us when the rest of our friends starts to tease us as a “couple-to-be”. I kinda enjoy it though :p.
She enjoyed it, but for me, who was the pity-object-but-not-always-bullied-due-to-my-enormous-size in all my schooling times, that kind of treatment got me anxious. See, I was always tried to live under the radar. When such spotlight came through, I didn’t know how to react but to fully denying it. It got me curious about her though. Hehe.

As time went by, that attractiveness slowly went down. He much more like a friend to hung out whom i rare spoke with. we go to a movie together, prepare for the exam together, work on group task together and even a lab buddy (of course, together here means there were 4 or more persons included). It was just that. Ow before i forgot, the very one thing i didn’t like about him at that time is, he never asked to sent me home when we hung out, although we went the same way home. Always Edi, who drove me to my  ‘kosan’ (-____-).
My way of playing it cool went through really well, didn’t it? Hehe. I’d hoped, not too cool, but it seems it got overly cool. Hau

I’m a pretty much an observer you know. There is this kind of gesture of him. i noticed it for a while. When he gets nervous he likes to make a repetitive movements. Either walk at same pace back and forth, move one of his body part (mostly fingers), over sweaty, and yet he make the same face expression. It’s fun thing to watch.
Baby, I was also a keen observer myself. One thing I’d like to point out about you is the higher voice tone and the relentless-denying phase when you got upset. But that’s okay with me, I’d like me some challenge :3

I don’t know if he knew it or not, but my feelings for him occurs like a sun. If it’s rise, it rose brightly, if it’s went west, it gloom as a twilight. At the time i like him most, my silly self tried to make an overboard gesture hahahahaa… just for him to notice me more. Until, one tiny action chase away all the feelings. On an annual basketball tourney in our campus, he played as one of the starters. There’s this time, in the game, when one of our team player passed the ball to him, and he should catch it, but instead of catching the ball, he dodged it. A boys who can play sport is always cool, right? and at that moment, when i saw that those attractiveness suddenly disappear, pufff…
I was never that sporty guy. My initial and my trained reaction upon seeing an object coming at me at full speed was dodge/deflect it. HAHAHAHA

At the end, for me,Ragil is a friend that a little bit shy, awkward, smart, nice, and to sum it up a NERD guy. I couldn’t ever imagine that i will end up spend my life time around him. What happen to us next? what happen to me to be exact.
And what happen to me? Stay tune. We got plentiful of cringe and cheesiness.
