In the spirit of it being my birthday a couple of days ago, I feel like sharing in this blog a little bit more (or less) of what I am as a person. Most people think I am extroverted. They are wrong. I am a total introvert. Social activities exhaust me and bring out the dark in me, except if those engagements are with a certain group of people that I consider - for lack of a better word - my inner circle. That circle is not large nor medium-sized, it is rather small as it only consists of my core family, my husband, and about ten other people who are my closest friends. My phone very rarely rings. People don't really reach me to get on chatty convos, which I am completely fine and comfortable with. I naturally avoid social gatherings, withdraw from non-inner circle engagements, or when I have no choice but to be involved in one, I take plenty of time to "recharge". For some reason, virtual engagements on this blogosphere has never really bugged me. This is why I have kept this blog, despite numerous incidental hiatuses, and I have been going back to it like the coziest corner in my bedroom. 

There, I've said it. If you've been reading this post up to this point, thank you for putting up with my rambles and hope you pardon my peculiar social choices.

Anyways, here are two outfits I put together for the weekend. I just love the details in each of them. I cannot stop appreciating that three-stacks necklace and how it would always be a pretty neck accessory to whatever outfit I would wear. In the second outfit, it's the pretty little bows on the sleeves that is the orbit of the look. Which one do you like better? 

You can find that blouse (and other lovely treasures) on Tokopedia by clicking here: Baju Atasan Wanita Online. Or, if you're Indonesian (or even if you're not) and you're looking for some new Batik clothing for work or otherwise, you can directly click here: Jual Kain Batik Online.

So cheers! Until my next check in!



I have lost count of the number of posts on this blog since its birth that I started with the phrase "It's been a while since I last posted" or other similar phrases. This post shall add a new one to that pile. My last check in was November last year. I have literally taken a trimester break from blogging. This may fall short of most bloggers' and/or most viewers' idea of good blogging practices because perhaps the longer you don't update the more likely people leave and forget about you. But for being completely honest, I feel like I have a healthier relationship with my blog now in that I do not feel the pressure of having to create a post in a fashionable frequency despite my main work and busyness IRL.

Anyways, here we are nearing the median of the second month of 2017. This is my outfit for this day we call Cap Go Meh, which is the fifteenth day of the Chinese New Year. Like most celebrations, though this is not one of the festive ones, we gathered with our kin and had good laugh and love. Weekend well spent, I must say. I feel more ready to exhaust yet another ton of energy at work this coming week.

Next up on the calendar is the regional election this Wednesday. Not sure if it's just me growing up to adulthood or if politics have really gone more maleficent than ever. Voicing our opinion and our political take makes us stand on the adversary side of another person or group and puts a target on our backs. Best friends separate and families fight on the face of politics, true story (thankfully not mine so far). I sincerely hope for the coming election to go peacefully and smoothly. We all love this city we live in, we all have the same end goal. Whatever the result, trust that it is what most of the citizens want, thus is what the city needs, and commit to that end goal we all share. Happy voting!
