jakarta, february 9th-10th,2015
guess who made its comeback. yep, flood. but this time, can i say, milder? it only lasted for three days in my office's area (last year it lasted for two weeks straight). the depths were varied. on day one it reached knee high, but the next day it was waist deep. very frustrating. i'm glad i live in a flood-free residence.

also, this was the first flood in which i caught the aftereffect. caught flu by the third day and apparently still feeling unwell up to friday. not to mention several little illness that followed (dehydration, constipation. i scream "no biggies!!" while laying on the floor half past dead with tissues scattered here and there). it has been the worst sicknesses i've encountered while working. hopefully the next months will be better.

damn february is coming to an end. why too soon?

on officially turning 26 years old on february 16th, 2015
so, 26? where the hell those days have gone to?

those days of "dammit, i'm old!" have long gone. i began to accept that it was all part of growing up and become a mature person. honestly speaking, my 25 was painful, as i've said in my instagram. it was full of loss and sufferings. a brutal phase in my life. but also i have learned a lot that it was absolutely necessary for the living. i don't have too much of expectation on this age other than trying to fulfill some old wishes. i hope i can be a better person for myself, my family, and friends. i want to see the world in more positive light. i want to go to places i've never been before. and also, i want to actually fall in love.

last monday, a.k.a the d-day, my friends arranged a simple surprise, knowing i'm not a fan of extravagant things. it was really nice. i never had such for years (since mom passed away, perhaps) so to actually blow a candle after more than a decade was so thrilling. i feel like a kid again.

cheers for a great age! have a nice february!

desserts galore at shirokuma, gandaria city
had a nice dessert time with a friend last week at shirokuma. i kind of wanted to try it out after reading so many reviews in several food blogs. turned out it was so nice. i had the one on first and third picture named shiratama parfait. consists of soft sream layered with cornflakes, mochi, shiratama balls, red bean paste and matcha jelly. really love the texture of the ice cream. so heavenly! not too crazy about the shratama balls tho. my friend ordered the number two. it's special for valentine and she said it's cute so she ordered it ((she's sucker for cute things haha)).

please note that jaejoong, the standee, not included. we were kind of celebrating his birthday at that moment so she brought the standee to take pictures with. i kind of thought it's cute.

note: it's been raining non stop since late night. flood is coming, perhaps. i will never be ready. i just hope it won't get worse like last year.

incoming mail from seoul, south korea

january and all it's struggles and ups and downs 
january was an overwhelming month. somehow it was full of stress due to so many expectations from every sides, family and work. not to mention the start of new year also gave me so many new deadlines for myself. not to mention, january was the month when i feel like i didn't take any good photos. maybe i became a perfectionist. maybe my so-called-skill is getting rusty. or maybe i need more practice. or maybe simply i'm not good for it. jack of all trades, master of none.

or maybe i just need a fucking break. or maybe i was being hard on myself. speaking about expectations.

other stuffs:
// catching up on agent carter. it's so good. so so good.
// watched no movie at cinema for the whole january. oops. gotta work on it this month.
// gifted myself an early birthday gift. pretty huge. but i'm feeling so good. will reveal it to you soon x
// stacking up on some new makeups. got the longtime wishlist maybelline clear smooth mineral healthy natural concealer in medium sand! also, my bad luck in bb cream continues. perhaps i really need some help.
// tweaked the layout again. this will be the final layout at least for the next six months. and i need to come up with a logo. hmm.
// successfully passed january healthily. yay!

may our february be prosper x
