well, ... at least a start.


After a year of Pandemic situation, I finally have the willingness to touch this blog. 
..... and weird enough I finally dyed my hair back to darkest brown. 
THE C O N T R A S T of skin tone .. I TELL YOU .......... 
oh, and I'm having an existential crisis. 

adiós.

Profound Consciousness


/insert long apology about not being active, but no one actually read my blog anymore. So I spare you the time/

Lately I haven't felt like I belong. Like, I'm so outta place and my flight response heightened. It's true, you know, .... your environment actually influence you a lot. This one, ... is toxic. I have been feeling so awful yet couldn't put my finger on what's wrong with me.

I don't know, the people that knows me, knows me was like .... encouraging me to strive for something better and believe me, I want to.

BUT ... I have been beaten to the ground that I'm not good enough? How to recover? Do I need to take a pause to all this?

Mom finally said that I need to go where I'm appreciated. Lo and behold, something that someone did triggered me and I'm gonna go full force now.

Striving for something better, where I will be finally appreciated.

EFFORT

This shall mark the day I'm trying to write again ....

So, first of all, hello.

It's been an Effing while.

I know.

For the last 6 months or so, I have been busy trying to find my inner peace, been busy trying to figure myself out. But as a reward, not only I found myself again, I discovered a few surprise pieces of life that I have been longing to have.

I finally found that if people do love you, they will pull an effort to keep you. Any relationship would lasts if there's effort. So even it felt like I wasted my time trying to connect with so many people, I am where I am today because it is really the right time for me to experience real love.

I spent my life tolerating people that would act like they're the center of my universe, .... they're so not.

Instead, I have the people that would meet me in the middle. The ones that says sorry if they're late, the ones that remember to ask me how I am, the ones that don't act like they know me, know me.

I never really felt like I'm obligated to be with them. It's always 50-50.

----

To whom it may concern,

Thank you for having me in your lives.

Regards,
Your friend.

a happy type of blue



Oh hi ho! IT HAS BEEN A - FREEEKING - WHILE. Ok, self .. chill with the caps. Buttttt .... I'm back, not for good, but more like popping in and out.

I know the last post I posted was me having weird-ass hair, but that hair had been for months on end and I feel like I need to change something? .. so then when I realized that I have 2 boxes of caramel-choco dyes, I went for it and here I am being a brunette? ... once again. Let's just see how long this color last, ...

Oh, the outfit? Glad you notice. Me, decked out in H&M, as always, ... I feel totally myself. Getting all dolled up is something I needed the most when days get rough. The "at least I look good" feel is something I cherish the most nowadays.

Half the year went by like a wind on a cloudy days, ... taken for granted. Don't you think? But, ... on the next half of the year, I might tick off things in my bucket list, ya'know... but it's still not set and all. Fingers crossed, ....

(not) an update



HI HELLO O M G - long time no see, eh? I actually don't have anything to say. Life has been so outta this world. I feel so uninspired and ... blah. But concerts are coming, and my hopefully fall trip is in the brewing process. So, ... yeah.

Hopefully, I can make this blog run in motion again, somehow.

oh, and I'm currently looking like this.

toodle-doo!



Tangerine 2.0




I'm aware that I used the same hoodie as the last post, ... so it's just another take of how I would wear my hoodie.

Pictures were taken in the afternoon after meeting Q2HAN (vlog here), the hoodie served as a dress. I feel like I'm slowly easing myself back to street style. I feel like my preferences shifted a lot these past few months due to a heavy influence of people that I look up to. Why I wear it like this? For me it's a perfect middle ground of girly and boyish. The dress, well - hoodie, is such a boxy piece somewhat masculine and the knee-high socks made me feel like a school girl. I don't think I'm doing a very good job explaining, but you know ... This outfit is a middle ground for me to be a little more adventurous towards my outfit choices - or me slowly turning back to the real me.

February is coming to an end, ... and I'm feeling like I need to be high on life. I want to travel, to see the world, .. yet still haven't have the ability to do so. Hopefully, soon.

Do you want to be high on life?

Tangerine



So, ... I'll start with a Happy New Year and may 2018 do you justice for your hard work. How are you? I hope you're doing great.

Wow, ... I've gone so long that I actually feel a little awkward to type words here. But yeah, I have been busy with life and being drained out with all the adjusting and adapting that I have to do. But I'm getting better. You know, ... Last December I got hit by news of the passing of, Kim Jonghyun of Shinee. He's one of the most talented people I knew. His passing just threw me off my game. Regardless, I hope he's happier than ever now. 오빠, 사랑해 .. So yeah, I'm regaining my game again. Slowly, but surely.

And here comes why I look like a tangerine. I purchased the hoodie from (He said we're friends, ....) a friend. He's an upcoming streetwear designer from South Korea. This orange hoodie is, ... let's be clear here ..., not my color. Coz I dressed in black, and only black for years. But, I got a bright coral-orange converse couple months back and upon seeing this orange hoodie, ... it clicked in my head. He only made a few of each designs, ... so I do what I gotta do. I "Get it". 

The hoodie itself is a simple hoodie, too warm for Jakarta's weather, but perfect for my cold office. So in the end, it all works out perfectly.

How's your January so far?

HI ... IT'S BEEN A-WHILE! I know I have abandoned this blog for far too long. I was so hung up on making this blog as a "professional" thing that I just gave up on it. You know, sometimes things would not go as planned, .... as what you hoped for. ....... but, .... I finally set my mind on having this blog as a, once again, ...an escape, a fun escape. I'll try to be more "fashion" and less random. I will finally sort things out, I'll do my best to make everything ready by January or the latest, ... February. 

Wish me luck on things, please.

NEW chapter


A new chapter of my life is in construction right now. I'd admit, I'm beyond scared. But hey, as a promised I made on April 29th, 2017 to BTS at their concert, ... "I would never lost my dream". This new chapter is somewhat a passage of life, of achieving greater things, so I'm nervously excited.

Ok now I got that outta the way, ... Let's talk about the outfit. As my trustee black skinny jeans is now had became shorts, I gravitate towards cotton trousers....? I know, I don't even believe it myself, ... but somehow as I swapped my jeans with trousers, the outfit had a sophisticated feel to it. The nude lace-up heels made the outfit more mature, I guess. 

To be completely honest, I feel like my style is shifting .. but I guess, it's just another passage of life. The new chapter begins on Monday, ... so please wish me luck!

LOUD




I would not lie, Kpop had been spewing a lot of summer anthem lately. My top 3 is Monsta X - Newton, KARD - Hola Hola, and EXO - Ko Ko Bop, ... oh, all of the MVs were super colorful, thus this outfit. I wasn't really thinking when I put these outfit (well, ..ok that's a lie .. I thought long and hard to pick the shoes). But then again, this is a major step for me after 3 years living in a grayscale outfit. I love how the yellow complemented the blue and vice versa. The cropped hoodie was a little distressed and I feel like it gave more of a character to the whole ensemble. If you notice, I couldn't leave out the round clear specs nowadays, ... again, it gave an oomph to, in my opinion, a simple outfit - and sometimes, makeup. Loud, but at the same time subtle.

a little short, but I'll se y'all soon!
