Tod's Blue Bauletto

Rocking the nite with hubby baby by wearing this blue Bauletto from Tod's! Could not be happier than this... The smell of the leather, the stunning color of the handbag, the craftsmanship & the everlasting style you live within...

I'm against fake handbag. Why everyone should never buy a fake handbag? Because everyone should respect themselves and take a quality as a serious matter...

Happy Sunday

a little narcissism would never hurt anyone rite :)

wearing red again! beautiful dress from Mango and my lovely wedges from American Eagle Outfitters that I bought on 2008 at Phoenix ;) so comfy!




Terharu...

Sometimes, it isn't about the job. But what matter most is the friendship you've made and the bond that was built between you & you're colleagues...

Eventually, position & title will fade away... And at the end of the day, you'll learn that being loved is the most important thing....

Red for a Gloomy Day

I love love love my red handbag from Cambridge Satchel ;) 

Starting to wear my red bag after such a long time ;) Bringing me back to the memory where I had cheerfully happy lunch with Prita, Erly & Olyne ;) 

This time, wearing my shirt from Zara, Levi's jeans & sandals from Nine West. Having a street style mode for this weekend!

a thought...

I don't oftenly go to church,
I don't go to Kebaktian Wanita which held every other friday.
In fact, that sometimes I forgot where did I put my Bible...
But as far as I Know, The Lord is good for The Saints also for the sinners...
And the most important thing: The Lord's mercy and graciousness are always there for the kind-hearted person...

God sees your heart!

Angel Comes in Many Forms...



I believe that angel comes in many forms. Saya sangat percaya bahwa malaikat dapat berbentuk apa saja, dapat datang dalam kehidupan kita kapanpun kita butuhkan, dalam kondisi terberat sekalipun, untuk menolong dan memberikan kita kekuatan...

---

Saya percaya, masing-masing orang pernah bertemu malaikatnya. Tuhan mendatangkan malaikat itu untuk membantu kita menggenapkan rencanaNya, juga sebagai pembuktian bahwa Dia Sang Maha Pengasih selalu mendengar doa dan perkataan hati... Saya pertama kali bertemu dengan malaikat itu sehabis pulang kerja di bulan April tahun 2007. Pertemuan singkat yang terjadi ketika kuliah saya pada tahap menyelesaikan skripsi Bab 2 yang kala itu sepertinya "tak berakhir" dan "hampir D-O" alias "madesu". Malaikat itu berdiri dihadapan saya dengan sepasang mata teduh, hidung yang mancung dan berkepala botak plontos. Jauh dari deskripsi malaikat kebanyakan yang memakai baju putih, bersayap lebar dan berkilauan. Malaikat yang Tuhan kirimkan untuk saya justru pada sore itu memakai baju hitam, jeans biru donker & berkamata. Tak banyak yang kami bicarakan sore itu. Namun keesokan harinya, saya dan sang malaikat sudah asyik ngobrol di Chatter Box - restaurant sebelah kantor dan menyantap Hainam Chicken Rice. Endless topic We've discussed at that time, although We just met for 2 days, somehow We're just connected to each other.

Setelah percakapan di Chatter Box. Malaikat tersebut semakin memainkan peranan penting dalam hidup saya. Saban hari, setiap cuti, dia membantu menggali ide pemikiran skripsi Bab demi Bab yang karena kesibukan dan kejenuhan kerja, tidak dapat saya kerjakan dengan baik. Saat itu, saya berkuliah sambil bekerja 7am to 6pm, senin - jumat di perusahaan tambang. Pada malam hari & weekend, saya mengajar bahasa Indonesia untuk 4 expatriate. 24 jam rasanya kurang. Saya menjadi terlalu sibuk dan tak punya waktu untuk mengerjakan hal maha penting dalam kuliah: penyelesaian skripsi. Entah karena sudah keasyikan kerja, atau karena sudah merasakan enaknya punya duit sendiri, sehingga saya lupa dengan tugas maha penting tersebut, tetapi sesungguhnya, dalam relung hati terdalam: menyelesaikan skripsi yang sudah terkatung-katung selama 2 tahun ini adalah hal yang paling saya rindukan dalam hidup.

Saban hari saya membathin kepada Tuhan, semoga saya diberikan kekuatan dan bantuan untuk menyelesaikan S-1. Bagi saya, hadiah terindah dari seorang anak kepada orang tuanya adalah berhasil menyelesaikan pendidikan dan memberikan gelar sarjana.... Dari semua doa dan syafaat yang telah saya naikkan kepada Tuhan, akhirnya Yang Maha Kuasa mengirimkan bala bantuan kepada saya. Teman-teman dekat yang tak henti memberikan support, juga malaikat berkacamata yang setia, tidak hanya meminjamkan laptopnya tapi juga mencurahkan energi untuk penyelesaian skripsi ini.

Setelah bulan-bulan panjang penuh kerja keras, skripsi ratusan halaman itu akhirnya terselesaikan juga. Masih segar dalam ingatan, ketika sidang skripsi, saya memakai blazer & rok warna pink muda, saya menelpon malaikat dibawah terik matahari, di depan kampus. Saya bilang kepadanya bahwa saya dikasih nilai A oleh dosen penguji. Dibalik telepon, saya dapat mendengar suaranya yang gembira. Dalam waktu 6 bulan saja, skripsi tersebut selesai oleh kolaborasi saya dan malaikat berkacamata. Saya dan dia adalah team. Kami satu team. Kebahagian ini adalah kebahagiaan bersama. Kemenangan ini adalah kemenangan bersama...

---

Malaikat itu ada.

Saya percaya malaikat dikirimkan Tuhan dapat berwujud apapun. Seperti malaikat berkacamata yang Tuhan kirimkan untuk menolong saya menyelesaikan skripsi saat ide dalam otak mandek selama 2 tahun dan hanya doa yang bisa saya panjatkan saat semua jalan berujung buntu...

Saya percaya malaikat ada di sekitar kita. Dia memuntun kita saat kesasar jalan. Seperti ketika saya dan Heng sedang mencari nomer rumah di Jalan Kajeng Ubud, lalu tiba-tiba seorang pria dengan sepeda motor yang entah datang dari mana, menunjukkan arah jalan menuju rumah tersebut...

Malaikat itu ada. Saya dan kamu hanya perlu berdoa untuk melihat jalanNya.

Romantic Gastown at Vancouver

I'd like to tell you a little secret from our last trip to Vancouver. There's a district named Gastown (near to Chinatown) that offers you a different experience of architectural, interior design, culture and of course: gastronomy (aka Culinary Adventure). 

Every time you go there you 
Should go to the famous steam clock and take lots of pic there like we did! Don't forget to have a cup of hot vanilla choco from the famous Tim Horton :))

Loving Gastown so very much... 






Love in Vancouver...

I've been blessed for having a chance to accompany Heng on his business trip to Canada ;)

Vancouver is actually listed as one of the world's most comfortable city to live in. I went to Robson Street several times as it is claimed as The Beverley Hills of Canada :) They have one of the biggest Lulu Lemon Store there. I had the chance to practice Yoga for free at their store! One of the best experience ever!

Went to Granville Island for having great food, coffee time and to smell the lovely fresh flower there :) Loving the city for its clean and comfy transportation system. 

We stayed at one of the heritage hotel at Vancouver downtown named The Fairmont Hotel. The room is fabulous and  beautiful. They have Hermes & LV store down at the ground floor :)

Also we found out that Gastown is a great place to hang out with friends as they have lots of chic restaurant and bar. I like Gastown so much because of its beautiful architectural design and the steam clock! We found that Gastown is one of preserved town at British Columbia as they keep the block original.

Lovin' this trip so much!

Alila Pecatu


From all the beautiful places we've been visiting in this world, Bali is a special one. We keep on wanting to go back there. No matter how millions of people saying that, but Bali is always close to our heart. Both Heng & I always having an internal peace after spending couple of weeks there. Bali always recharge our spirit.

Last month we went to Bali and experiencing a fancy dinner at The Warung at Alila Pecatu. They served delightful varied Indonesian food. There's also another restaurant near to The Warung serving western food both resto having such a breathtaking view to the ocean and an infinity pool :-)

Would love to go back there again :-)

New Baby on Board


I'm so lucky to have this baby blue from Tod's as Heng gave me for a gift to celebrate a special day :-) We head down to Plaza Indonesia on a nice sunday afternoon, strolling down the mall and did not plan anything to buy at Tod's store but Heng asked me to take a look inside and there my heart fell in love with this aqua blue / sky blue / any kind of blue you would like to describe :-)

Thank you Sayang....
