flabless. bubbye guts!

I was reading hollywood gossips yesterday and saw photos of those damn slender young hollywoods wearing bikinis and got so tanned and all.

Jealous? Um not so much.
But it inspired me to work out.
When was the last time i work my ass out?
I can't even remember! So lazy.
And it's not good. NOT GOOD.

I'm not saying that i'm fat or anything. But it would be very nice if i could lose some weight and shape my lower body up, firm and tight! Right?

So yeah. I choose to jog every morning.
I hate running actually i really hate running. But i have no choice! If i pay bucks to the gym, it would be such a waste because i knew that i'll be too damn lazy to go there.

Jogging in other side, is cheap and actually the healthiest.
I mean, hello? In the gym you sweat like a pig but in a room with an AC? Doh.
And swimming? It's hella fun but you're stuck with chlorine, pee and saliva. Talk about EWW.
But when you jog around the park near your house in the morning, you can feel the breezy morning and the warm sunrise, very retro huh?

So um yeah. Jogging.
Everyday for 15-20 minutes.
Start from 6 am.
Equipments: a cute Nike, iPod.
Wish me luck! Oh!

heart earth!

No, i'm not gonna write about scary facts about global warming that i'm so sure most people already heard about it, know about it, and read about it.

I just read this news about the Aral Sea, it's not actually a sea, it's a lake, a fourth biggest lake on earth, that's probably why they call it 'sea', it's located in uzbekhistan and kazakhstan borders.

Well, it's not big anymore. It dried up. Aral sea has dried up and shrunk by 90% on the past 50 years.
The Aral Sea dried up has been described as one of the planet's 'most shocking environmental disasters.'

Wake up. What does it take to realize that the earth is really dying?

Stop seeing other people, start seeing yourself, have you done something to save the earth?

Ps: As an official greenpeace supporter, i already stop using plastic for shopping bags and i use energy efficient products. As simple as that.

late night quote

“There is only one success - to spend your life in your own way." - Christopher Morley

fashion blogger?

Posting your personal style on your blog is hot right now, although, some people find it kinda overrated, including me, once.
But then i think, heck it's pretty much a cool way to express yourself.

I personally, adore fashion.
I've been working around fashion too. like in-house designer (but in the name of being idealist, i quit this job.) and fashion stylist for a local indie band.

So i think it's kinda fun to post my personal style on my own blog.
Will start posting soon! xx

life's a bitch.

I just got home from my bestfriend's house to share a very personal story of my life, with ice creams and tears.

Sometimes, when life gets bitchy, friends + laugh + love are only the cure.
(Sometimes, drinks.)

And i'm so glad that i have people to share with. To know that i'm NOT alone is good enough. People have problems, different fucking problems.

But i'm not alone, i never was :)

Ps: thanks so much for khey and adyn for today. You silly bitches :))

aji yudistira photoworks

Photographed by: Aji Yudistira

I first met this cool photographer around 2007 at Soho on a cool crisp jazzy night.
We knew each other actually a little way back from a social networks,
I fell in love with his works!
Then on that night i asked him to photograph me and my friend, Khey.

He did ask me to be his model but my stupid fucking job was crazy hectic so i had to say i can't.
Then everyone got so busy with their job, college and all.
So we meet again at 2010 when the three of us weren't so packed with daily routines.
We quickly arranged a photoshoot.
And meet up some more to discuss the concept and wardrobes.
And we got "summer/auntum" for our first photoshoot.

Make up by Veronica Cyntia (Tya) And wardrobe by ourselves. (Too bad our boutique "khey and kate" are not actually done yet, so we can't wear our own designed clothes)

Aji was a great photographer, he choreographed very well and he made me very comfortable with the raunchy jazz music that he played.
And again, i'm in love with his work.

Here's a couple of his uhhmazing works:

You can contact Aji if you need a professional photographer for a prewedding or a fashion spread. Very recommended!

terry richardson

this wicked fashion photographer has lots of crazy ideas in his twisted head.
his works are mostly related to sex, but never cheesy.
infact, it felt very youthful with a touch of sex, love and alcohol vibe.

let's not be good, let's just be bad.
he made it genuinely cool.
and if anyone could made two gay superhero french kissing works, that'd be Terry Richardson.

whose wagen is this?

found this at Radio Dalam when i came to my boyfriend's band practise.
very hippie don't you think?


kurt and courtney.

john and yoko.

Ann: "careful.. that sounds like a classic case of falling in love."
Lee: "i am in love. i'm classically in love!"
- my life without me.

crash landing.

It was new year 2009.
Me and my boyfriend went to a little party to celebrate the always-exciting new year's eve.
I had never thought that we'll end up into such a chaos.

We arrived around 10 to this little party my boyfriend's band mates were having. They rented a deluxe room at this karaoke place instead of hotel so we could have so much fun sing along. There were pitchers of beers and bottles of liquors on the table.

I'm not an alcoholic but i do love to drink especially on an occasion. Anyway, while singing cheerfully, i kept sipping and sipping, enjoyed my time laughing, even i myself knew that at some point, i was a little bit out of control.

The clock hit 12, most of us hugged to say happy newyear, and things were getting a lot blurry to me.
The drinks kept flowing and i kept sipping. I remembered i had 2 flamings. And gone crazy.

I didn't remember anything. But around 3 am, i woke up on the couch, very blurry. People told me that i fell and my head hit the marble table, bleed a little then passed out. My boyfriend (a 'casual' alcoholic but rarely getting drunk.) covered me with his jacket and sit beside me the whole time i passed out. Then i threw up, twice. My friends were drunk as well, one of them was literally passed out on the floor.

It was around 4 am that we decided to go home, which was a very bad idea considering that all of us had so many drinks that night. But each of them kept saying "it's okay, i'm not drunk, i can drive."
In a very very drunk condition, the last thing i remembered was asking my boyfriend "are you okay? can you drive?"

It was around 5 am, i tried so hard to open my eyes. I found myself still using seatbelt in my boyfriend's car. There were lots of people. But i can't find my boyfriend. He wasn't at the driver's seat. It was very hard for me to move so i just weakly scream his name.

One of the strangers probably noticed that i was awake, he asked me if i'm okay, or if there was any injury or something. I was very confused, did we just crashed?

There were also my friends who probably wanna make sure we were okay. I asked one of them where's my boyfriend and why the fuck he wasn't beside me. And they told me that he was drunk and now he fell asleep in one of his friend's car.

He never drunk. He can't be drunk. My thoughts were bouncing while my friend helped me to get to the car where my boyfriend slept in. I woke him up. God, he was all red, very drunk. I never thought. He saw me and hugged me so frikkin tight and mumbled something, i took that as an apologize. He had, well too much drinks.

So my boyfriend's car was totally crushed, both of us got lots of bruises and bumps (but thank God!), i lost my wallet, my boyfriend had to spend millions for fixing his car and we started the year with badluck. Oh.
Thank God we weren't dead or worse. Thank God we didn't kill or hurt someone.

Drink and drive is that dangerous. Lots of people i know actually died in a car crash. It was a good lesson for us though, now if we're tipsy we choose to stay rather than drive, or wiser, know our alcohol limit.

blushing romantic

Yesterday, I went to one of the Indonesia's buzzest wedding worth like billion rupiahs.
From socialites to state officials.
All the posh goodlooking guests and a very gorgeous decoration.
It's the Nia and Ardi's wedding.

I arrived at the Mulia Hotel around 8 pm with my friends. I wore an ethnic semi-kebaya, very chic. Anyway, the parking lot was so packed with cars like Rolls Royce and Bentley and stuff. (Talk about goddamn rich people)
So to park the car, we have to struggle to those RI-car plates. And we spent like an hour just to park the car.

The lobby was full of paparazzis which was annoying btw. And all guest (approximately around 3000 guests) have to queue to enter the grand ballroom. The queue was fucking crazy long. We queued like an hour! Shiizzzz. But the preweds photos were so pretty and it was showed along the loooong queue journey probably to make the queuing less boring.

My first impression of the main ballroom, where the reception was held, the decoration was very gorgeous. Very blushing romantic. While still queuing, i can't help but whisperly singing along with the band that performs very well with piano, violins and all very orchestra-esque.

After queuing so frikkin long, i finally congratulate the newly weds and the parents, yadayadayada.

i let myself socialized a little then the first thing i wanna do is taste a little bit of this and that. It was too bad that i spent almost 2 hours on queuing that the yummy looking food is already out.

So i just had grilled gindara that they mix with types of mushrooms wrap with alumunium, the wagyu beef, shrimp cocktail, beef teppan, fish and chips, all in petite portions. The gindara was the best. The wagyu is runner up. But too bad that they ran out of food, i mean, you guys invited thousands of guests, aren't you supposed to spend more money on the catering?
And it was so hard to find the silver wares btw. Also the drinks.

So i took off around 11, and noticed that there was a little 'after party' with green laser lights and a DJ outside the reception area. They really do know how to have fun now, don't they?

So yeah, that was the most tiring wedding i ever went, the runner up was my sister's. Ugh.

I left Mulia Hotel at 11.30 pm and went drinking with my BF.
Doh, it was friday night!

the April 13th

It's 12 am right now and i just had 2 cup of coffee with something.
Sitting alone in my frikkin freezing room with the lights off while listening to pornopop, i must tell you guys, it's getting very spacey in here. Thoughts are bouncing in my head. In other way, i'm sorta 'under influencely' creative right now.
Whatever. Today sucks so bad.
Oh man, i hate being an insomniac zombie spaz.

Is it just me or the time really does roll so fast it's already April? Thank God it's my most favo month. Well of course, it's my birthmonth *smirk*
Wish me a happy birthday on April 13th!

Anyway, since i was a kid, i don't like to celebrate my birthday. My siblings were like having balloons and invited friends over on their birthday, while i just wanted the birthday presents. Until now, i still don't celebrate my birthday. And i've never been a fan of surprise. It's so dull, isn't it?

For me a birthday is very personal. It sounds weird or whatever but i gotta have some serious me-time on my birthday, so yeah, i'll just take my presents and birthday wishes and scoot to have a quality time with myself without balloons without cake. hell no, i'll have the cake.

The "health, wealth, happiness" wishes. Every year i wish that for me on my birthday. It really sounds so dull. Maybe i should be more specific on my wishes, heck it's my birthday! I could wish whatever i want, right? Right.

So um, i guess, i'll just selflessly wish for 5 things. (God can read this, right?)

1. A cool job!
I wanna have cool stress-free job that i love with a bunch of cool people with a decent salary that pays for everything (concert tickets, saturday nights, ridiculously expensive taxi fare, cravings, new shoes, etc.)

2. At least 5 birthday gifts.
(Plane ticket to Bali, anykind of lomo, a complete set of painting tools and supplies, ipod touch and hair extenzo).
Yes, all of those are pricey.

3. Cash.
Yeah. Big bag of cash.

4. Lots of birthday wishes!
From the plain "wish you all the best" wishes to the creative one. Whatever. I love birthday wishes.

5. The "health, wealth, happiness".
Still. The best wish ever.

There you go!
Not too much, huh God?
Please please please make those come trueeeee.
(I'll say Amen on the 13th.)

casablancas, julian

How do i even begin to explain Julian Casablancas? Some would say, his voice makes you wanna fuck. *nodding*. A very strong sex appeal with the coolest "i don't care what ppl think" attitude, very rockstar-esque. But aside of his gorgeousness and all, let's talk a little something about one of my favorite person on earth.

Born from a wealthy family with a famous daddy and a model mum,
Jules could easily pull hollywood off. But he nonchalantly chose music and until today, he has been successfully making loads of great songs since the first time i heard The Strokes.

His solo works like wow. I thought, when i heard Jules goes solo after The Strokes unofficial hiatus over the fourth album thingy, i thought he wasn't gonna do well, i thought he will probably end up creating the same songs The Strokes' used to play, with a bitter taste because hey, it's missing 4 other members.

I was bursting with curiosity about his new works (apart from the upbeat dancey collaboration with Pharell and Santigold, which i love btw) so i head to his myspace and there it was,
"I'll just nod, I've never been so good at shaking hands/ I live on the frozen surface of a fireball," - 11th dimension.

Umm, it's still an original casablancas' with a touch of new wave and electronic (is that trending these days btw?). Well the spacey throwback is kinda fun, it flew. a mix of 80s synths and trademark Jules' sexy vocal drawl (like a drunk grunge rich kid who doesn't seem to care about anything, although i think he's kinda sober by now.) Well yeah, overall it's not too far from The Strokes. So, KUDOS to Jules.

Anyway, my favorite song from his mini album "Phrazes for The Young" is Words of the Apocalypse. It works so well with his voice, very bluesly. Oh and the lyrics are guhhh-reat! Damn, Jules got a major talent on song writing.

And i've been enjoy listening to his new stuff since 2009 til today.

So there you go, you got gorgeous, talented, grunge, rich newyorker in one hell of a man! But apart of his well-done soloesque, i'm still Team Strokes!!!


No. I'm not writing about a timeless love quotes that some people annoyingly retweeted everyday. I'm just having some serious boring night. So yeah, It's just another blurbs about favorite lines from bunch of my favorite movies! Say yay?

say no to plagiarism.

Everyday, millions of photos, videos, songs, notes, quotes, blogs, designs, etc are being uploaded through any kind of social networking sites like facebook, deviant art, myspace, tumblr, twitter -- you name it. And millions eyes are glued everyday for hours in front of the computer.

Internet and its trending social networks obviously have two sides. It is without a doubt making communication, promotion and connection a lot easier, cheaper and practical. But on the other side, it has a huge part of nowadays crime, from fraud, kidnapping, underaged porn, piracy, cyberspace addiction, hate speech, to plagiarism.

Plagiarism in the internet or often in social networks, happens everyday to anyone by anyone. It is probably not as dangerous as fraud or as harmful as kidnapping, but plagiarism disadvantage its victim.

I was a victim a couple of times, and i can do nothing (no actually i really wanna squeeze the hell out of those chicks brain) so i simply private locked some of my sites like facebook for example, the least i could do.

Plagiarism is hard to stop but it can be if there's a clear cyberlaw about plagiarism and the awareness of each internet users to not copy others ideas and works, because plagiarism is also other forms of theft or in my words, stupid fucking copycat.

favorite list vol. I

"silver white winters that melt into springs, these are a few of my favorite things" - sound of music

Beside of my permanent favo lists (such as YEN magz, Julian Casablancas, IKEA, playdoh and blablabla) here's a blurbs about my March-favo things!

New school Dr.Martens.
How grunge can you go? Urged by the spirit of The Clash, Nirvana and the return of the 90s, Docs' has a wide range of fan, including moi!

Marc Jacobs USB Hub.
Wowness fer his oldschool-mixtapes-designed usb hub! It brings me back to silly years of NKOTB.

Panda Bear.
Noah lennox's experimental awesomeness is now my new lullaby.
Ponytail is my favorite!

Karen Walker Eye Wear.
Because the future's so bright you gotta wear shades!

French Memo.
It's my sister handmade french memo! (http://two-silver-buttons.blogspot.com) Slip yer photos and notes or whatever. French it up a little.

Yes, my favorite decade, the 90's are officially back. Acid washed my jeans is a new hobby.

A little slice of BALI
Since my little sister moved to Bali. The photos, stories and virgin beaches urge me to go there really really bad.

Ipod Touch.
Enuff said.

McDonald's Coffee McFlurry.
Ever since MCD hits cinere, mcflurry has been wickedly oozing its way to my thighs and butt.

French Poster.
Oh la la. Je suis tombé en amour avec l'affiche française!

I skip too many cool concerts! So yeah, going to a concert will be my favo thing this April!

scream my heart out

Live your life. Laugh more. Cry more. Feel more. Taste more. Try more. Do more. Know more. Scared less. Doubt less. Pray more. Play more. Ask more. Sleep less. Love more. Hate less. Work more. Work less. Think more. Dance more. Hug more. See more. Listen more. Read more.

Dance in the rain
Step on the wet grass barefoot
Smell the earth

Hug your loved ones
Tell them you love them
Tell it everyday

Listen to a music that you love
Even if people say it's lame
Who cares you love it

Make friends
If 'cool people' is boring and fake
Make friends with everyone you're comfortable with

Regret nothing
Enjoy life even when it sucks
Life is way too short

Be more all-out about everything
Don't hold back

Go to the beach
Scream as loud as you can

Look at yourself at the mirror
Say good things about you
You deserve it

Dance like crazy with stupid song
You don't have to be drunk
Just dance, like crazy.

Stop being so perfect
It's fucking boring
Laugh at yourself, it's fun

You're the main star of your own movie called 'your life'
Make it a good one
Start now

Stop searching for money
In the end, it really doesn't matter

Search for happiness
If money is your happiness..
Well then, go find lots of it
whatever works for ya

When you do have money
Spend it on vacation and food

Try everything
Don't be afraid to fail
Don't think. Just do it

Take pictures everyday
Make memories

Make a list of things you wanna do before you die
And really do it
Before you die..

Do good things
Do bad things
At your own risk

Be responsible of what you've done
You're not a coward are you?

Act like your age
Enjoy phases of life

Say what you wanna say
scream your heart out
But once again, be responsible.

Leave someone who hurts you
Unless you have a big heart to forgive them

Be curious
Ask a good questions
And find the answers

Have faith in God
Whatever your religion is
This life we have is temporary

Pet something
Talk to them about your dirty little secret
They're a really good listener and very trustworthy

Eat whatever you wanna eat
Exercise more
Be healthy, It's precious

Buy a good quality running shoe
And run
Like forest gump

Do whatever you want at your own risk and responsibility

Life your life to the fullest
Again, life is so short.

splashing colors on a raw canvas

I was always the art geek in my family. From playdohs to paintings, i love making art. And i have no idea why the fuck i wasn't studying at an art school after highschool. Anyway, i've been vacuumed from making art for about 5 years because of works and you know, crazy social life. But i feel like back in the game.

Well, as a start. I sketch. I mostly sketch. These hands just won't stop drawing. I mostly use blank paper and a pencil. Yes as simple as that. I also paint. I mostly use acrylic and canvas. And i also do an embroidery paint, you know, where i drew something on a canvas, pick the embroidery threads colors and get it done with embroidery machine. So much fun. I name my first embroidery painting: Petra. I'll upload the pictures later.

And i've been seeing interesting illustrations from the world wide web for an inspiration. Nick lu's for example. His illustrations are so light, free, simple, and thinkless catchy. I so love his works. I adore! Super cool.

I've also been checking out some french posters, vintage mostly. I never realized that i adore french poster oh so much! I did order 2 french posters via internet. Can't effin wait for those to come.

Local artist, here in my home town jakarta, are awesome too. The locals gives a lot appreciation for art in every aspect and forms. So it's always cool to express yourself here in Jakarta. I forget the names but, you can buy art and design magazines to see how cool indonesians artists and photographers are.

So i thought, well yeah i'd probably quit working on fashion. And try again this cool thing called art.

"Rin tomosaki would you come out and play with me, would you swallow my cum?" - Idol Semen, Sajama Cut

This Jakarta based indie rock band, Sajama Cut, is one of the English Lyrics band from Indonesia. And probably one of a very few indie band from Indonesia that collaborates with internationals artists (Japan, UK, France, Sweden, Italy, etc).

Cool, poetic, cynical lyrics about life, love and its surroundings are all written by Marcel Thee (vocalist). You can check their lyrics at www.sajamacutlyrics.blogspot.com

Not only the lyrics i love (and like to quote then put it on my twitter btw, haha) their sound made me fall in love. They currently release a new single called paintings/pantings, two words for it: fun and fresh. Listen to that makes me feel like sipping lemonade beside the pool on a sunny sunday with shades and a retro bathing suit. Pretty catchy tunes for Sajama Cut considering their sound before were kinda, umm, idealistic. You can free download paintings/pantings on their facebook. (Search: Sajama Cut)

First time i listen to Sajama Cut, i was like, well this is like meeting a humble stranger who seems familiar. Their music is similar to few indie rock bands, but has this humble sound that is enjoyable and comfortable, not boring and sounds fresh.

My favorites from Sajama Cut are Fin, Haunted Lights and Season Finale. Other songs like Fallen Japanese, It Was Kyoto Where I Died are cool too. You should check those out on www.myspace.com/sajamacut

Okay i do hook up with their guitarist but i really think Sajama Cut rocks.
