that late trip to ikea alam sutra 
being that lazybum-anti-mainstream-girl i am, i didn't jump on the bandwagon to do the great migration to ikea alam sutera when it opened late 2014. i will never understand how people always want to be the first to see opening of a venue/shop/outlet/whatever. it's so crowded i can't even breathe omg n o p e . and lbr, after few reviews saying that the lingonberry jam isn't available there, i was kinda disappointed. so yeah, the trip would have to wait.

so there i was, coming for the first time to the most raved housewares and furniture store all of my fave bloggers talked about. impressions? it was massive, yet so beautifully arranged. they made me want to sit on every couch available, touch all the sheets, basically they made me want to explore everything. and they made me want to buy everything. how come? it's as if they crafted each section in detail. left nothing abandoned. i feel like i've been transported to sweden all of a sudden.

in short, i was impressed.

probably the downside is that we have to queue for so long to get the infamous swedish meatballs (we gave up halfway) and how indonesians are too lazy to clean up after their mess (it's written in every table but everyone ignored it. no surprise). so we just headed downstairs for the ice cream instead. it's so yummy.

i ended up bought nothing but i made up a long list in my blue sheet. future things to buy. how's ikea in your country looks like? (please spoil me on the lingonberry jam. i'm so curious yeah)

the long radio silence this time sponsored by the broken laptop and the broken work pc. i already have two posts in the draft but because i couldn't edit my photos, i couldn't post them. bad news aside, i'm back with new post for spaces i love! been on the low radar lately but i've pinned some beautiful spaces in my pinterest for future posts. can't wait to share them with you!

i'm a sucker for studio type. i see a room without partitions as comforting and open (there's this theory of blood type o people as the one with many locks on the door yet open to one huge room without any partition. well, i kinda can relate). i always dream to have one studio for me to work in, a huge open space with little nook on the side by the window to rest for a while, and big long table to lay things out and do all the DIY's on. this studio of a pair and a spare has everything i want and need! i like how geneva also showcase her DIY and put it to use. and bits of green in concrete jungle added nice refreshing touch.

things i love:
// the whole DIY spirit that literally build this space. from the hanging rope shelves to sturdy table with concrete block as legs. everything seems so buildable and i think, you can make your own version of this studio at home!
// the black and white rug. i covet!
// the bare ceiling gave the studio some kind of raw touch but also keep it polished with white paint.

for more pictures and video, heads on to the post! what do you like from this space?

// so i failed to watch fast and furious, but i compensated myself by watching avengers: age of ultron twice. t w i c e. review coming soon but i guess by the amount of watching (and such shit-eating grin above), you can tell that i enjoyed it, right?

// the long radio silence got me thinking a lot. mostly in terms of family and relationship. it amazed me somehow that by not saying anything and basically shutting my world from any interaction unless the necessary ones could reveal so much of those who still stay around you despite whatever, those who only come to you when they need you, those who only use you, etc. wow, i need to do this more often.

// i made a mental note to go outside of the city (or just wander someplace new, far from concrete jungle) at least once a month. the recent trip to bogor made me realize that despite how much i said to myself that i didn't need such recharging activity with short trip, my body, mind, and soul need it. let's make plans!

// so i finished season one of arrow and currently watching the flash. both are equally awesome. i might going to start digging more dc comics in the future.

// i finished daredevil on netflix! it's so so good i'm going to cry ehmehgerd. i remember just a week ago i was such a repudiate bitch against the idea of watching it. but then out of boredom i started to watch it. the next thing i know, i finished the whole 13 eps in four days. such a great reminiscence of the raid. and that old boy reference on 2nd eps? major win. i'm having my second rerun now. everything is so badass and painful and oh my god so good it hurts to my core. go watch it if you haven't or still contemplating. do it now.

hope everyone's may will be awesome!
