They Call Me Sir

image

I though I did okay with my face, but people telling me the opposite.

 

So anyway, despite the fact I have not blogging so much lately (work), I need to tell you something. So yes, the aging is coming to get me. Last week, during Chinese New Year holiday, I was having such a good time. Mostly involved dirty laundry (literally from Saturday-Sunday-Monday) but I did enjoy it. So enjoy it, so I decided to give myself a masker. Then I realized that for a while, I really look okay. My skin is doing okay, no (big) pimples, and not drinking during the day. I felt so young and ready to face the work day on Tuesday. I even almost kiss my mirror.

Then comes the painful surprise the next following day. Not only the people start to calling me with “Pak” (Sir), but even the barista calling me the same tittle. I know, I’ve been notice for a while, people start to give me the tittle and I’m not 17 anymore (I know, stop remind me), but not in million years, I thought the barista will call me Sir. If you must know, here in Indonesia, calling someone with “Pak” is mean one thing. You are old. Even the barista used to call me “Kak”, which means “Bro” in very nice way. No, I didn’t throw my latte to the barista because a, it’s expensive drink and I need my morning caffeine and because b, I’m grown. I will find something else to get back to him.

In conclusion, just when you though you have your life (look) together, you have to swallow the not so sweet fact of life. Or maybe is just my mirror that keeps lying to me and not telling the truth the whole time. 

I hope you will start stock up good moisturize,

Book Review: I’ll Drink to That by Betty Halbreich

You should read it. “I’ll Drink To That” by Betty Halbreich

Hi All,

How is your Sunday morning? Here in Jakarta is raining and gloomy, so I just stay in bed while enjoy my lazy day. Meanwhile, I want to let you know about this book that I really enjoyed reading.

“I’ll drink to that” by Betty Halbreich. It’s an autobiography book and I’m not autobiography person, but this book is so good. Betty will share her life experience, struggles, and how being personal shopper can save her life. Who knew good taste will take you far?

I’ve been looking for this book more than one year. After one time failed to find in Singapore, finally I got this one at the big book store in Singapore last month. You can’t imagine how happy I’m just to hear from the customer care officer that the book is available.

I took the book during new year holiday and let me tell you, I had great time.  

Now I need to do my laundry,

I always don’t like Justin Bieber‘s style (most of the time), because it’s too weird for me, but not this one. I really like it.

As per my statement before, striped and army print are basic prints, so when you match those two, you’ll get effortless style-as long you keep the rest of your outfit basic.

Side note, do you like her new purple hair?

2016 Resolution? Wear White More Often

2016 Resolution? Wear white more often

 

I’m not a big person for new year’s resolution, but I need to admit, I am kinda that person in style department.  For 2016, I want to try to wear more white. The main reason why I don’t like to wear white is not only it makes look bigger, but also based on my experience, it gets dirty so fast. Well, at least for me.

So while on holiday last month, I did it. I wear white (ish) denim from Levi‘s. I got the denim more than 3 years ago while still based in Malaysia, but I barely wear it. Since it was holiday and no body gives a care about what I’m wear, so I gave a shot. What the worst could happen?

This is like my favourite look from holiday, where I combine the denim with grey t-shirt, striped sweater, and DIY sneakers which I also barely wear. And now I’m back with my black denim uniform. Back to my comfort zone but with one new learning point. I should wear white more often. Let myself get comfortable before make it as part of my uniform.

Start with small steps always good idea.

Hello 2016 (It’s Me & My New Sunnies)

 Hi All,

 

Still remember me? Before you judge me (if you ever read my blog) and ask me, “Where have you been?” (if you ever wonder), well I got life to live and let’s just say I was little bit enjoyed my work and holiday too long.

So many stories to tell, but just to be short, I was working in Singapore and Malaysia in December 2016, then went back to Indonesia for Christmas (quick stop in Bali), then after 5 days, heading back to Malaysia and Thailand for holiday until early January. More on that on different post.

But for now, let me tell you my new accessories for 2016, this Vincci sunglasses, which I got while waiting for my flight in KLIA 2. I totally love the design, the way it frames my face, and the price as well. Only MYR.29 something, but because I’m foreigner, they got me extra 10% off. It’s actually accessories for woman, but I like it and since when we put label on everything?

It’s style. You know when you know. I miss you (if you miss me back, please say something).

Too many if for early 2016,

Fashion Friday: Striped And Velvet

Striped shirt & Velvet Jacket For Holiday season

It’s December already? Wow, time flies so fast and holiday is upon us. You know that now I’m on shopping diet? No new piece of clothing whatsoever even I’m tempted to do click ‘buy’ button on my favorite shopping sites.

But anyway, for this holiday, all I need is to be a little bit creative. Maximize the things that I already own and play with mix and match factor. I like how Jason Donovan‘s look fits for holiday season. The idea of wearing something basic, like your own striped t-shirt with something more formal such as the velvet jacket just simply cool. 

Have you bought your holiday season yet? Or you plan to stay in the city only?

I like the way Homeland‘s actor dress for casual day. Some green sweater with blue beanie hat. He keeps the rest of the outfit neutral. Overall, Nice combination, don’t you think? You also do the same.

Rupert Friend definitely dresses for holiday. Speaking of holiday, have you shop anything yet for Christmas?
