Javanese Blangkon As Scarf


Javanese Blangkon as Scarf

Hi All,

I’ve been staying in Jakarta for almost a month without any traveling and let me tell you something. It’s freaking hot. Since the traffic is bad, then what alternative you have? Yes, Go-jek or Grab bike. I told you this before.

Whenever I’m mobile around Jakarta to meet my client or even go to gym, I always wear my jacket with hoodie and sunglasses for sure. But even after put on the helmet, still I feel the sun through my neck. Until I got the perfect solution.

It’s called Blangkon. Usually worn as head accessory by Javanese man (Google it), but for me, it’s the perfect scarf to cover my neck whenever I travel during the day.

I like how I can support the local heritage while keep the function and still look stylish. And you know what’s best? It only costs you like less than $2 and you can get it anywhere in the street of Jakarta.

How’s your month btw?


In Fitting Room: Uniqlo Blue Shirt


In Fitting Room: Uniqlo Shirt

So I was walking around with my friends during lunch hour at Uniqlo store in Jakarta and the next thing you know, I was in fitting room, trying their new product.

It’s blue shirt and just perfect for me. The colour, the fit, and how it will fit perfectly with the rest of my wardrobe. The only thing I don’t comfort enough is the price. It’s around $20 and I can get 2 pieces of shirt from Zalora Indonesia with the same amount of money.

But we’ll see Uniqlo.

What you do during lunch hour?


Victoria Beckham is Wearing Flats


Victoria Beckham is wearing flats


It’s just odd for me to see my favorite Spice wearing flats. If you pay attention and obsessed (in not stalker way) with Victoria Beckham‘s style like me, then you know that the designer always, I mean always in heels. I think the only reason why she’s wearing the flats is because it’s part of her line. If the flats not only comfortable for your feet but also as your effective marketing tools, why not?

But you know what? I love this combination of black and white (She’s always in something black lately, don’t know why), especially the flats. I might want to copy her flats and get myself a pair of loafer with same colors combination.

I think it’s classic, just like Victoria Beckham herself.

Monday again,


What To Do On Holiday? Clean Up Your Grooming Products


What to do with your grooming products?

Hi All,

Still sleep yet or you already on your way for long weekend holiday? Anyway, if you just stay at home and plan to watch Game of Thrones or The Real housewives of Atlanta marathon (I don’t judge), why don’t you add little activity to make your holiday more usefull? Clean up your grooming products?

I’m Gemini. So if you like me, then you know we all bit lazy (in very creative way). Our things all over the place and we need one special time (like today) to clean up our mess and to make ourselves feel better.

Even most man don’t have many grooming (beauty) products like woman do, but still if you look closely, you have many things in your bathroom or drawer, things that you didn’t know you have or even use. The shampoo that’s not working to clean your dandruff, the sample face cream that you have not use since last year, or the face cleanser that gives you acne and more blackheads? You see? You think you and I don’t have a lot in common, but think again.

So what to do with those products? Well, if you can’t use it anymore, then threw away, I hear you scream. Well, here’s another idea of how to maximize those products before you simply treat it as trash. Use it. Not on your hair or your face, but here’s idea of what to do:

  • Shampoo: Use it to as detergent to wash your underwear or socks.
  • Face cleanser: Use it as scrubs to clean your dirty feet.
  • Face cream: use it as body lotion.

Just make sure the expire date is still far away. After you do that, trust me as Gemini, you will feel better about yourself and your long weekend holiday.


Place To Go In Lampung: El’s Coffee


Place to go in Lampung: El’s Coffee

Hi All,

I was browsing through my phone and I found this particular picture of me at this nice cafe in Lampung, called El’s coffee. I like the place’s vibe, young and classic at the same time. If you like coffee, then you should try their black coffee. I forgot the name of the product, but some coffee from Bali or Aceh

Also, if you want, you can buy their coffee bean or powder and bring home as souvenir. It is located in Batu bara street in Bandar Lampung. No offense to Lampung’s people, but it’s a small city, you can’t get lost.


Pinfolks! Pin, Realy Add A dash to Your Wardrobe


Pinfolks! Pin

So I was thinking last week on how to add little something to my basic wardrobe and somehow pin came up on my mind. After browsing a while on Zalora Indonesia, I found this local brand which sells pin and this bird pin, named Toucan just got my attention. It really gives extra something to my basic wardrobe last Friday (gray t-shirt + Army Jacket + Black denim).

I think the best way to wear the pin is with your jacket, whether it’s army or denim jacket. Or even just pin it on your basic plain shirt (white shirt or gray or even black). It will add your personal touch right away.

One thing that I still upset about is, how slowly the shipment from the company to my address. It took like one week later and one day late to arrive, which is sad, because the company located in Jakarta as well. But overall, I’m happy with my purchase (45k IDR) and how good the product is.

Nice job Pinfolks!
