As White As Snow


The color white is the absence of memory.
 - Stephen King

Hey there lovely readers! It's finally time for another #OOTD post, yayy..
I have been so in love with white color lately, and have been wearing lots of them these past few days. This look is actually inspired by a childish wish of mine to experience snow. Since I live in the middle of the equator line, it's almost summer every day here and pretty much impossible to experience snow. So here it is..




Actually this look is more suitable for a spring look but I'm not sure if the season has changed to summer there in the northern hemisphere. The season have changed a lot in the past few years, mainly because of Global Warming I guess. So it's pretty hard to predict what season the other continent are experiencing at the moment. But it's still pretty chilly here in the southern hemisphere, and I know that because the wind from Australia give us a pretty cold and breezy weather here in Indonesia. How's the weather there in your country?



During winter season this outfit will also work perfectly with some stockings and a warm trench coat. For the stockings I would prefer darker color because it gives your legs a slimmer look and pops out the dress even more since it's in a light color. And for the coats I prefer classic colors and here is my top color chart for coats: black, beige, maroon, navy blue, emerald green and mustard yellow. Did I mention any color of your favorite coats?


Here's a closer look of the purse and the pump shoes.



These picture are taken by all of my three little siblings, Richard, Catherina, and Peter. So happy that they would love to get involved in the process of making this blog post.


Actually, I was planning to do a psychology section to share my love of psychology and learning about people minds here in my blog. I thought that it wouldn't do any harm to talk about my personal thoughts and ideas related to psychology. Especially since I will be a psychology student as well. What do you think about it, lovely readers? I bet it would be so much fun :D

Shirayuki Cafe


Hi there lovely readers! I wonder what have you guys been up to lately..
It's school holiday season here in Indonesia. And I've  been having a pretty good time this past few days. Like for example tomorrow I will go rafting with my family, I'm super excited and I can't wait! I have also recently joined the pen pal revolution. A good old fashion letter delivered by the postman can always brighten up my day.

And I have to apologize for not updating my blog. I just came back from Jakarta, my hometown a week ago because my beloved grandmother just passed away :'( and I left my laptop here, back in Bali. And spent my first week from my return to Bali on Eyebrow Embroidery classes. actually today was a pretty long day for me, I just had my first experience on making eyebrows, eyeliner and lips embroidery on a real human model. It was really nerve-wrecking, exciting and exhausting at the same time. Will post about it on the blog, as soon as I have receive my eyebrow artist certificate. So here i am late at night finally making time for a new post on this blog when I should be sleeping.

I would like to talk about this cute little cafe that i went to when I was lost in Jakarta. I was supposed to send some of my father's work stuff but ended up in one of the hippest place in town at the moment, Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK). And you have to believe me, this was unintentional hahaha

And that was how I ended up in Shirayuki Cafe.



I really like the good vibes that they spread here.


Cute little ornaments on the wall.


This is definitely my favorite part of the whole restaurant, the polaroid background.


Inside look of the cafe, behind the polaroid wall.


Second floor, I was on my way to the toilet.


Some cute signs on the toilet, man I love this cafe! LOL.


My order! It's called Doki Doki Sweets. Doki doki actually refers to the sound of your heartbeat in Japanese language. Doki doki is used a lot in Japanese Manga to show that the character in the story is in love and really nervous about something. So this would be a perfect dish for you to share with your couple. Anw a green tea sauce goes with this dish, it was being heated up when I took this picture. So wait for the best part of this dish.. 


And tadaaaa... 


if you wan't to see the whole pouring and melting process, you can check out my instagram, cause I posted a short video there. You know actually I had this little fantasy of a marriage proposal using this cake, can you imagine how surprised a woman would be when she sees a ring in the middle of the heart shaped cake stuck on the arrow cheese stick, and how perfect this cake would be for that scenario! hahaha


Honestly, the cake wasn't only good looking, it tasted heavenly too! The red velvet was super moist and goes really well with the green tea sauce, and the cheese stick really gave it a perfect savory touch. I wouldn't mind eating it everyday if it was free, lol. But unfortunately, I find it a little pricey, it cost me 75K before tax and service.

And because my first order was satisfying i thought that I had to try more. So here's my second order goes to this Bolognaise Gratin. Layers of cream, macaroni and bolognaise sauc
e.





 This wasn't my favorite because I find it to creamy. But it wasn't that bad after all. I think this one cost me 40K. I had a cold refreshing green tea ocha for my drink. Overall I really like this place and would definitely come back one day!
