The Sky is So Blue

Here you go some pictures from my short "trip" last week. You know, the more longer I live in this island, the more I realize there are so many places that I never have been to! It's pretty ashame, because every time we have someone comes for visit, they will ask some places that they haveheard it's popular in this island, but we don't have any clue about it. So yeah, travel more, go out more, but first... let's work harder for it hehehe.

The weather turns so HOT these days. Maybe because last week it was raining almost every day, and the sky was not clear and bright as usual, you will get it after seeing these pictures below. Last for not least, I hope you guys enjoy your day and don't forget to stay awesome!

Shoe Talk

Since we decided to start VFeetShoes, me and boyfriend have a longgg thought (and become our dream too!) to start our own shoeline. Selama lima bulan ngejalanin online shop kecil-kecilan ini, aku baru sadar ngerjain bisnis apapun nggak ada yang gampang. VFeetShoes sekarang kayak batu loncatan sih buat plan ke depannya nanti. Aku kan nggak tau apa-apa soal sepatu, gimana bikinnya, bahan dan komponen sepatu tuh kayak apa, dll. Jadi ceritanya belakangan ini lagi berusaha mempelajari itu semua. Walaupun ini sesuatu yang baru dan sulit, aku enjoy aja ngerjainnya. Kan katanya kalau ngerjain sesuatu yang kita suka, ya pasti seneng-seneng aja ya (ciyeee). Oya, sering ada yang nanya kenapa aku cuman jualan flat shoes, nggak heels atau wedges, jawabannya satu: I'm a hardcore fan of flat shoes. Menurutku, sampai kapan pun cewek butuh flats, di samping mereka suka banget pake heels.

Nggak tau tepatnya sejak kapan aku suka banget pake flat shoes. Buat tomboy insaf kayak aku, pake flat shoes untuk sehari-hari sudah menjadi perubahan besar, dibandingkan harus langsung pake heels. Apalagi sejak The Little Things She Needs mulai masuk ke pasar Indonesia. Pertamanya aku bingung, ini kok nama brand-nya lucu banget, dan begitu tau kalau mereka khusus jualan flat shoes, aku langsung kayak nemu surga dunia hahaha. 

Koleksi model dan warna sepatu TLTSN beragam banget. Dan yang paling aku suka, flat shoes TLTSN bisa dipakai dalam berbagai acara. Inget banget pas kuliah di Guang Zhou dulu, tiap pulang Indonesia pas liburan musim panas, pasti borong flats di TLTSN buat dipake di sana untuk pergi kuliah dan jalan-jalan. 

Nah sekarang kalau mau beli flats The Little Things She Needs, bisa langsung di website Zalora Indonesia nih. Tinggal pilih model yang kamu taksir, habis itu flat shoes-nya langsung dianter ke rumahmu. Praktis banget! Kebetulan aku lagi pengen beli flat shoes, dan ini beberapa pilihanku di Zalora. Please help ladies, can't decide! 

Nggak tau ya, buatku sih flat shoes itu bener-bener kayak sahabat yang setia nemenin aku ke manapun. Saking sukanya, si pacar suka komentar, "Sekali-kali pake heels dong!". Lucky me, TLTSN punya koleksi wedges dan platform shoes juga, and this is my favorite one, what do you think?

Malem-malem window shopping di Zalora bukan ide yang tepat, mending lanjut besok hahaha. I'm working on a little post about my "holiday" trip with Andreas while he spent days here. Some pictures will be coming up soon on this blog. Happy weekend everyone and stay awesome!

Favorite Things Today

1. Stopped by KFC this afternoon to grab coffee with mom. Guess what, we turned out to be a big fan of their coffee! I don't know what they did to our coffee, it tastes very yummy! I ordered iced latte while my mom had her hot brewed coffee. I've been praising the good taste of it and the barista who made our coffee (and made my day too). Thank you, Mbak KFC (:

2. Mommy left me alone for Cap Go Meh event at church while I was still at Jesrisoles. I was browsing through Diana Rikasari's old blog posts (again) for killing time. Not that I'm a stalker, I missed her old days and always loveee reading her diary especially when she was in the same age with me right now.

3. Daddy and boyfriend are finally home! Yes, Andreas came along with my dad for second time. No common reason for him to come "home", he will come whenever he wants. And you know, I'm not the happiest one welcoming Andreas home, my mom probably is. I don't know, I think my mom fell in love with him too since Andreas "mencuri hati camer" already. That's sweet honey. Good job! ((:

We are going to Ubud tomorrow morning, wohoo! I'll try to take some pictures this time, since Ubud is my favorite destination for a "getaway". Who doesn't love Ubud anyway? So yap, I'm going to bed right now. Catch up with you later and stay awesome!

A Glimpse of My Childhood Dreams

It has been raining for wholeeeee day, non-stop from last night till tonight here. Feeling to write a post and I found this draft. My dear friend Sastika has tagged me to do this post. I thought it's gonna be fun (and nice) to reminisce about our childhood days. So here is a glimpse about my childhood dreams. Oh and here you can read the blogpost by Sas.

1. To be a cashier at a supermarket.
This is so silly, but you might to know this little story. When I was a kid, maybe around five or six, Mr. Santa in my school gave me a Christmas present (which was I knew later that actually from my Mom LOL), is a toy cashier register. It's cutee and colorful! The mini-me was jumping around the house and couldn't wait to play with it. The toy machine comes with fake money and as I remembered, every day after school I was looking forward to play with it. I was always in charge to be the cashier and my Mom was the customer. Fast forward to adult-me, did it really happen? Well, yes, but no in supermarket. When I was working in Starbucks, I (finally) learned how to work with the real register machine. Of course I was dealing with the real money too. And fyi, it's touchscreen!

2. To be a pianist.
Isn't it funny when you wanted to be something when you were little kid, but as you grew older you realized that's not going to happen? I've been playing piano since I was six, or maybe seven. I thought piano is going to be fun, and yes it was really fun, until I had my first Royal exam. I got pretty good score for my theory exam, but failed for my practical exam (I took for sixth grade). That time, I was exactly sure that I was not going to be a pianist. I should say I'm a "penikmat musik klasik" (my favorite composer is Chopin) and  playing piano is one of mood therapy. Thinking about that I can't memorize any classic pieces when you ask me to play, yes I was not born to be a pianist. It feels like I'd been wasting my parents' money for more than 10 years haha. But no regret at all. At least I can read music notes *proud*

Oh anyway, I'll show you my Royal exam certificate that I always have been proud of. 

3. To work at McDonald's. 
When I heard one of my friend got a part-time job at McDonald's when he studied abroad in Melbourne, I was like, "I wanted too!". I imagined myself making burgers, pouring cola, making ice cream, frying those chicken wings, hmmmmmm. The dream was about to happen when my parents suddenly bought us (me and brother) a McDonald's play set. It was one of my favoriteeeee childhood memories and I believe that day was my best day ever. Okay, some of you might wondering what kind of McDonald's play set? Let me show you, this picture I got from Google of course. 

 Mine was the left one

Basically, you can make your own "burger" from this snack maker, as the box said "make delicious snacks you can eat and drink that look like McDonald's Happy Meals!". I remembered we used marie regal biscuits as the burger buns hahaha. This was really fun I tell you. But again, I happen not to work for McDonald's and it's funny too that I like McDonald's iced coffee rather than its fried chicken :D

4. To be a writer/novelist.
Well, maybe this is the more realistic dream that I'm still on the way to pursue it hehehe. Every time the question "what do you want to be in the future" popped out, I simply answered "silently"... I want to be a writer. You know, I can imagine myself in ten years later, when I'm going to be a mother and wife, I'm going to be a writer too. I'm totally fine if someday I have to work from home, take care of my family and sit for whole day working for my upcoming book. It just like really okay, because this is what I want. But yeah again, you can't just want something without doing something to make it happen, right? So, let's work work!

Looking back those childhood memories, I found that the little me back then was very blessed. I really had that "masa kecil sangat bahagia" moment. We can't be young in age anymore and we couldn't be back to our childhood, but we can keep that "spirit" stay in our heart. Being an adult is another blessing, because hey we're all growing up. Though most of the time we easily feel unsure with our capability or afraid to take risks, I tell you my friend it's okay. The last chapter of a book that I'd read recently, Travel Young by my favorite girl Alanda Kariza, she said, 

"Stop over-thinking. Start enjoying the ride. Live in the moment." 

Just let your inner child stays in your heart (:
