Wilujeng tepang taun, Gusti Pangeran.
Happy Birthday, Jesus.
Have a joy, joy, joy. :)
Well, well, I’m turning 20 today (errr, like 15 minutes ago on December 23rd)! OMG! 20! Twenty! Vingt!
I have two heads! *LOL, no off course, it’s just an expression
But I had a blast, actually! :) My brother called me on midnight while I was sleeping and I didn’t say anything while he’s babbling, and I forgot it at all in the morning! LOL.
Mother and Father kissed me on the cheeks as felicitations. Then I had a cozy breakfast (oenbijkoek, some kind of sponge cake with spices & sugar-free Oolong Tea). Hm, good!
After that, I took my lunch in Rosti Bistro, located in Jalan Merdeka Bandung, part of Badranaya (a butcher, actually), inside Toko Merdeka (they sell soes and other cakes, etc.). I was there with my two best friends. :) We had a lovely semi-brunch-almost-lunch! I ordered Snapper Meunier which tasted ‘funny’, I think. :3
Further info about this bistro, click here.
We got fulfilled and talked a lot, and we went to BIP, took a sight-seeing in The Body Shop (<3), tried to search something in Matahari Dept. Store, but we decided to move!
So we caught an “Angkot” Margahayu-Ledeng, headed to Jalan Riau! Then we were MAD in a factory outlet named Lily ‘n Rose. OMG! All the stuffs are cute! CUTE! CUTE!!! *hahaha, nothing can exactly describe that cuteness
There are cute collars, chiffons, sweet skirts, colourful trousers, warm cardigans, nice scarves, vintage bags, accesories, OMG, I just GOT. CRAZY. LOL.
We were travelling around inside, and chose a stuff to try. Inez took a casual-but-okay-for-formal-situation broken-white chiffon blouse, Esther grabbed a blouse with little lace and cute little white apples pattern on blue background, while I dropped my choice to a dress with vintage bunny-and-ribbon illustration (oh, I love dresses!). When we showed ourselves to each other with clothes we tried, we were amazed, in love, and with no resistance, we walked happily to the cashier! LOLOLOL. One more thing, it’s our first shopping moment! I mean: we, to a boutique, and leave the store with shopping bag in hands! It’s always been our dream to held a girl’s day, but it came true today, after 7 years of edgy friendship. :)) We were surprised that we took photos with our shopping bags. :))
Voilà, c’est ma nouvelle robe:
I departed back home earlier than Esther & Inez, because I still had things to do. At home, I played with candles…because there was an electricity problem suddenly! (mati lampu!) So I blew candles, but not the one on a birthday cake. :))
Aaand, in the evening, me and the whole family (Father, Mother, Brother) got inside the car and I did rehearsal with SLCO a.k.a. St. Laurentius Chamber Orchestra (me on viola) until 10 p.m. while they had dinner at Glosis with my uncle’s family! :P I couldn’t attend that dinner because of the rehearsal.
But with SLCO, I had a blast too! Well, everyone said HBD to me, everyone sang a HBD song, and we ate cakes! :)) Our clarinet player (she’s about 10/11 years old!) was having birthday at December 19th too, so she brought 3 boxes of chiffon cakes. I bought 2 box of brownies. The choir gave us soes-es. A violin player (and she is about 14 years old!) also had a blackforest cake, and our “Momma” a.k.a. coordinator or something shared her ananastaart, a kind of cookies, which I made for her. :)) So WE ARE SO FULFILLED!
I went home after that. Happy and grateful. :3
Thank you, families*! :)
*families contains: Father, Mother, Brother, Esther, Inez, my uncle’s familly, all SLCO members, everyone in the world, oh…we are all family! :D
and my ringtone is:
I absolutely in love with Timmy Time.
Have a nice day ahead, Ladies! :3
If you ask me, what’s my favourite food, I will answer: fresh fruits!
Why fruits? Okay, fruits are usually naturally sweet. I easily become sick if I take too much sugar, because I don’t really like sweet taste. :P But eating fruits doesn’t bring me to sickness, instead I feel fresh and happy plus healthy! :3 Fruits contain vitamins. Homo Sapiens needs vitamin. And fruits sometimes bring you a lot of water, natural sugar, and antioxidant!
My favourite fruits are: Banana (I even used a banana shampoo just for the nice smell of that species), apple (and it reduces excess oil too! I agree that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. True!), avocado (can’t resist the creamy, mild texture), watermelon (crispy and refreshing!), melon (sounds childhood-y and Nobita-y since I read the manga Doraemon and saw a scene when Nobita eat a melon with a pleasant face. I was fall in love at that moment, with melon, not Nobita!), mango (Oh, God, mango is a fruit from paradise especially when it’s already ripe and sweet!), papaya (yummy and a good cure for stomach problem), jackfruit (it’s edgy in taste and satisfying in texture)… oh, I love almost all of the fruits! I someone left me a basket of fresh, ripe, sweet fruits and a knife, I could eat all of them! Just like a monkey! :3
So what’s you favourite kind of fruit, Ladies?

So actually, December 1st is my brother’s birthday. He was in Jakarta but is heading to Bandung this night. :) Happy 26 years of life, Brondong! :D
LOL, after all, I went to The Body Shop store at Bandung Indah Plaza yesterday, because I’m a December person too (my birthday is coming in 21 days ahead)! So I took my birthday gift, redeemed 150 points of my Love Your Body card, and bought a shampoo.
Finally, I brought home:
1. Rainforest Balance Shampoo-250 ml, a shampoo with no sulphates, parabens, colourants, neither silicones (read as: biodegradable, eco-friendly, you-friendly, whatsoever)! This one I got is specialized for oily-hair, like mine. It contains White Nettle Oil, Pracaxi Oil, Seaweed, and Community Trade Aloe Vera. So this company has Eco-Conscious standard which explains that the product is respectful to the aquatic environment, using sustainable material for the packagings. Good!
2. Strawberry Shower Gel-60 ml. I always dream of this shower gel at my house, and I got it for free! LOL. Anyway, the SA asked me to choose between this berry-berry nice shower gel and Japanese Cherry Blossom body puree in the same size. Surely I pointed to the red thick liquid in tiny bottle. :P I love strawberry so much!
3. Morrocan Rose Gift Box, filled with Morrocan Rose Shower Gel-60 ml, Morrocan Rose Body Butter-50 ml, pink shower puff (TBS calls it: bath lily), and a pair of pink bath gloves (to exfoliate dead skin cells better). All in pink! I love it! By the way, the scent reminds me of Mawar skincare series from Sariayu Martha Tilaar. It’s rose! It’s pink! It’s mild and feminine! :D The only cons are the methyl-to-propyl parabens that listed at last words of ingredients part. :S Well, it’s not that easy to avoid parabens. Meh. But I love the fragrance, really! :) Flowery. And it’s a gift from points, I love gift! Irrestisible. <3
Thank you, The Body Shop! :)
At last, December come with rain and sun come together in one day (haha, that’s Indonesia). What’s your plan for December, beautiful girls? :)
