My Going Out Tops

Reading Time | 3 min 13 sec

How are you guys? Still sane during this epidemic? I am really trying to keep my sanity on the full tank cos it's slowly killing me. I know as an introvert staying at home is not a problem for me, but the tense really hit me hard during the first few days of the lockdown in the UK.

I have tried to keep myself calm like keep doing some of my usual activities like reading, writing and cooking. Plus a new addition, like watching some films but sometimes it didn't really seem to work fantastically. My anxiety, yes, I find it hard to cope with it lately.

One more thing that cutely sparks a little joy in me is unbelievably shopping for some clothes, shoes and bags. Not for any special occasion, but it just my old habit starts to appear again during these so-called quarantine days.

I'm most relaxed when I browse through my wardrobe, I mean it's like my little treasure. I love fashion since I was a kid, but I didn't have any chances to get some clothes for my self back then. I was a poor kid okay with no money, lol. After I started to get some money for myself (without my parent's help), I felt like floating on the fluffy clouds.

Do you get what I mean? It's girl stuff you know. 🥰

My Hectic Last Day in Rome

Reading Time    |    6 min 27 sec

Oh, how I wish Italy is the same as it was before. Seeing all the news about the recent case in Italy is concerning. It hurts my heart, but I can't do anything for them except a prayer. Let's pray together for Italy and the world. This epidemic takes a lot of lives around the world, ready or not; we're at this age, so please implement social distancing wherever you are.

I'm going to continue my writing about my travel diary in Rome now. I hope you're not growing bored of me, lol. Since we all can't travel right now, I want to embrace my memories and write it down so I could treasure it.

The Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica

Reading Time    |    10 min 21 sec     

Last summer in Rome was sweltering. We went to Vatican city on our second day in Rome. Did you know that Vatican City is the world's smallest recognized independent country? I was surprised that this little city has a population of fewer than 1000 people living within the Vatican walls.

And it is one of UNESCO's world heritage sites with its walled enclave nestled within Rome.

Fashion Coord 0.4 - March

Reading Time    |     2 min 42 sec

A white dress is one of the best choices to stay glowing and angelic. Most people would choose black instead of white because they say black looks classier. I think it depends on the style of the dress and the look you want to achieve.

Plus, your personality.

This is a secret, but my husband fell in love with me when I wore a white dress.

Farewell My Angel

Cerita ini ingin aku tulis dalam bahasa Indonesia.

Minggu lalu, aku menerima berita yang sangat mengejutkan dari my sis. Hachi, salah satu guguk peliharaanku mendadak pingsan. Aku sangat sedih dan hari itu aku tidak dapat berhenti menangis karena katanya kemungkinan Hachi tidak akan bisa diselamatkan. My sis sudah sangat merana karena dia menunda membawa Hachi ke dokter beberapa kali walaupun sudah diingatkan oleh papa.

Aku tidak dapat melakukan apapun untuk Hachi selain berdoa dan berdoa kepada Tuhan. Hatiku sangat sakit dan aku tidak dapat berhenti menangis saat aku berada di gereja. Aku hanya dapat menangis dan berteriak memohon agar Tuhan menyelamatkan Hachi.

Tidak dapat berhenti menangis, mendadak salah satu kenalanku di gereja (a chinese malay) bertanya ada apa denganku. Aku memberitahunya kalau aku sedang sangat sedih karena peliharaanku sedang sakit parah dan kemungkinan ia tidak dapat diselamatkan. Alih-alih bersimpati, ia malah sedikit tertawa dan berkata, "It's just a dog you know, God is more important!". Aku hanya terdiam dan sakit hati sekali dengan perkataan dia.

Padahal aku ingin meminta tolong dia untuk membantu mendoakan Hachi, tapi sepertinya itu tidak penting buat dia. Aku sadar bahwa tidak mungkin semua orang peduli pada binatang dan mencintai mereka layaknya mahkluk hidup. Aku juga mengerti mungkin dia tidak mengerti kesedihanku. Tapi please, at least, bisa kan menunjukkan sedikit sympathy? Atau kalau tidak bisa, lebih baik diam saja daripada kata-kata tersebut dapat menyakiti orang lain.

Karena aku jujur jadi kepikiran terus, namun aku mencoba memaafkan dia, mungkin dia tidak mengerti apa yang dia lakukan.

Rome: The Roman Empire

Reading Time    |     9 min 39 sec.

Rome has been around for almost three thousand years and yet carries all that weight of history with their Roman empire dominance around Europe. We all learned about it in school, right? When I first read and studied the history of ancient Rome, my mind wandered and imagined how powerful they were.

Fashion Coord 0.2

Reading Time    |     2 min 54 sec

It's February already! How are you guys? I had just come back from my trip to Jakarta a few weeks ago. I didn't have much time to update on my social media and my blog because many things happened that made me super anxious. Well, shits occurred.

It was a lovely and busy trip, though. I had a fabulous stay with my family, but it was super hectic until I couldn't meet with any friends. We have priority, and our first priority is our family. I miss some of my friends, though, but I'm sure they will understand my difficulties. It's not easy to be a wife, a daughter and a daughter in law at the same time!

Anyway, just a little update up there and I'm ready to share some fashion coordinates for this month! They are from my favourite one-stop shopping online store - Femme Luxe. I had chosen four pieces which is suit my taste and my body. Fyi, I'm 167cm.

If you're looking for some inspirations for your wardrobe, you might continue to read the whole post until the end.  :)

#1 Obsession = TEA

Reading Time    |    6 min 49 sec

Last year, I made a poll on my IG story about whether I should make a blog post about my tea selection as many people have been asking me about that. Many people voted Yes instead of No, and because I have a bit time this week (before I go back to Indo), I've decided to make the post ASAP.

2019's Story in a Wrap

Reading Time    |    7 min 54 sec

Last year was a roller-coaster for me. It was a healing year where I positively braved my self to dig deeper to the root; to study more about my self and accept all my obscurest side. It was the year where I earned my true peace and freedom as well. It was not a happy journey, but it was worth it and full of blessings.
