The Absence

October 20, 2008 Leave a comment

I was absent for awhile.. I got lazy and I went away, twice. First was to Kuala Lumpur to attend my god-sister’s wedding, and a week later to Surabaya to do nothing (I’ll post pictures when I’m ready I promise).

I think everything needs to be started with a good intention. I first was like ok to go to Surabaya, we were supposed to go on the 2nd day of Lebaran. It got postphoned to last week. Then I heard there were like 2 gatherings: one is the reunion of my high school and the other one is just another FD’s Gathering Akbar. Then, I was so reluctant to go. And so bad luck was on my side.. I was supposed to fly back at 3, but GIA messed up and I took the 5pm flight. Got to Sarah’s house at 8 and only few people left:

Thanks to Sarah Safira for the house, the picture and the gossip.. lol

Kinda pissed I missed a lot. But oh well, I guess it’s just one of those days. The good news was I was one of the winner – on purpose though, lol.

For the last few weeks I do not have any intention to write. Which is why one might notice that today’s post is actually a bit crappy and cracky. I guess I am just so very tired.. Especially being on an airpline 6 times in a month when all I wanna do is just stay home and hang out. Not a good feeling.

Less than a week I am heading back to Oil Country. Another 17 hours on the plane, yikes!! I have to start packing, but I can’t. ‘Cause my suitcase is still being washed and should be back just one day before I leave. How wonderful!! Well, I can actually just collect my goods, spread them on my bed and voila! Ready to be transferred into the suitcase. But God Knows How.. I am tired on packing.. sigh

Money Money Money

October 13, 2008 Leave a comment

A little monetary crisis. Today I went to Piti Pili (Money Changer in Panglima Polim) and checked out the currencies. A CAD is now only IDR8,500 (more or less), and a USD is CAD1.16. Oh wow.. now it’s a good time for me to go shopping.. lol (no, Ragil.. so irresponsible!!).. But anyhows, this might be the best (or at least the good) time to exchange some of my US dollar bills. We’re not going anywhere yet – at least after KL last weekend – so currency exchange is pointless. I am just hovering between thoughts “keep my US dollars” or “exchange”..

From Paris with Love

October 8, 2008 Leave a comment

My dad just got back from Paris.. and here’s what I ordered:

Cargo Beach Blush in Tenerife a-two-in-one blush and bronzer. So pretty and it’s matte so I am really curious of how it turns out. Don’t know when I’m gonna really touch it though. The blush is so pretty in its packaging.

And MAC’s Beauty Powder in Flower Mist Dew. It’s from their newest collection, the Emmanuel Ungaro’s. It’s a pretty soft pinkish powder. I am not really sure on how to use it though, lol (don’t worry, I’m asking around).

Last but ain’t least, not from Paris, but with a big big L.O.V.E. .. Blackberry Curve (I think it’s the 8330 one) in coal.

It isn’t new but since my dad has it and he doesn’t use it, he asked me if I wanted it. Why not?! Heheh.. I wanted Bold before. But since I don’t need it, I thought I’d wait until I am working. But heck, curve is pretty.. and LC uses it in some Hills’ episodes. I’ll just get the colorful skins so my personality stands out.

Z was gonna get me Bold.. and my dad said “I’ll swap my blackberry with your bold”.. lol, sorry Dad, I am gonna top the money up to fund Acura MDX..

Sunday, October 5th 2008:

I had a wonderful day today. Few days ago I was supposed to meet Diana. She’s a friend of mine from high school – it’s been 9 years. The meeting was delayed though, due to some things. Luckily it didn’t take long for us to re-schedule.

We met at TopShop – I wanted to check out her favorite store :p – at Senayan City. Let me first say that it gets tough for me when it comes to keeping in touch. So 6 years of parting could be awkward – Die admitted it too, lol. But then we figured that the blogging world has simply altered that.

It took us 1 salad, 1 sushi, 1 tomyam, 1 chocolate souffle, 1 blueberry cupcake, 2 iced teas (one thai’s) and 4 hours to catch up on each other (and a little shopping spree), especially those things not written in our blogs – it gets a little serious sometimes but that’s what friends are for, ain’t it? lol.. Surely fashion was in the subject too since Die is a stylist at heart (and blog :p ), but it gets more meaningful, to get to know a friend of 9 years more than just meet the eye (and blog :p )

Pictures are grabbed from Die’s blog: Hot Chocolate and Mint
