Lombok Bali Business Trip

I have to 'yay' first, because after almost five years working here, I haven't visited all Honda Dealers in my area which is Lombok and Bali. 

So yay (again)! :D

We have one Dealer in Lombok and three Dealers in Bali, so it was a four days business trip, the longest ever in my work experience. Four days trip were super packed. Along with my colleague we went to each Dealers: visited, checked, and presented the result at the in of the day. Tired and lack of sleep, but I had my mojo: enjoying their local foods! 

Mie Manalagi - Lombok

Nasi Ayam Bakar - Warung Bendega - Bali

Nasi Campur Ayam - Warung Adnyana - Bali

Iga Ole - Warung Ole - Bali

The most favorite coffee in one of our Dealer: Cappuccino with Honda Logo :D 

I definitely have to burn some calories now! >,<

Dolly Wink Mascaras

Mascara was the very first beauty item I bought when I was at senior high. It was even a clear mascara, without any effect. I've told you that I was a dorky back then (or still am?) that I had no experience at make ups at all. Hehehe..

Now, Mascara for me is a must have beauty item. I can have a bold black eyeliner but without a mascara I feel naked.

I tried The Body Shop or Maybeline once or twice, and not quite satisfied with the result. They were not long lasting, I would have panda eyes by 3-4 hours after applying. I thought every mascara was the same until I found Koji Dolly Wink!

I have Dolly Wink liquid eyeliner and I like everything about it, so when I saw their mascara, without hesitate I purchased it. My very first Dolly Wink Mascara is the long one.

And as predicted: say bye-bye to panda eyes! This mascara stays still until 10 hours, as amazing as the liquid eyeliner. So when C was going to HK last month, I told him to buy me another Dolly Wink mascara: the volume one! Hooray!

Volume + Long = Awesome Lashes!

I was trying these two mascaras at a friend's wedding last week ;;)

Dear Dad

Dear Dad,

I thank God for the day of your birth today many years ago. We agree not to mention the number, right. It doesn't matter how old are you, for me, you are forever young, yeah with that huge tattoo on your left chest, I am always in an awe for the courage in your youth. You have such an experience. 

I know you love watching the news everyday as often as possible. You acknowledge every issue, every name in politics in Indonesia, you sometimes argue it, you probably talk to Mom, but she doesn't really into it, so it seems like you're talking to yourself, take it easy Dad, women's brain is only about pretty things, like diamonds and shoes, politic isn't included. 

You know sometimes when I have to work over time at the office, even on Sundays, you suddenly call me, just to make sure I am okay, just like you know that something bad happen to me (yeah, over time is bad, right). And every time you hit me with the question "Where are you and how are you?", I answer and ask you a similar question to you quickly, to get you distracted, and you will forget the 'where are you' question at the first place hehehe.

You know Dad, I think I get communication skill from you. I remember when I was a little kid, you had your radio thing called ORARI or something, and you speak different accent and dialect. You are easily adapting to them. And look at me now, most people don't know that I come from small town not even written in Indonesian map. Wohoo!

Hmm, what else? Think I'm gonna write more in your next birthday.

I hope you have good times with your grandchildren, I love seeing your smile when you play with them. Smile and laugh a lot, it helps reducing the wrinkles hehehe.
I hope you will be forever grateful for ups and downs in life. No worries, you have God and you have us, your family.
I pray God will give you a strong heart and a peaceful mind, I know you have a sleeping trouble, yeah, Mom told me.
And one more thing, please keep healthy, okay?

Happy birthday Dad, I love you.


Your little girl, always

Hooray! Grandpa loves Me! :)

Beauty Bucket

I'd like to list all of beauty haul from earlier this year, just to remind me of how much I've been spending on beauty stuff, and moreover to remind me that I have enough XD.

What's in the Beauty Bucket:
1. Bath and Body Works - Flawless Gold 24K Silk Lotion (got it as a gift from bestie)
2. Tresemme - Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray
3. Avene - Thermal Spring Water
4. Real Technique - Expert Face Brush
5. Koji Dolly Wink - Volume Mascara, Fake Eyelashes (Pure Sweet), Liquid Eyeliner in Black (repurchased, love it!)
6. Make Up Forever - Kohl Pencil in black (smudgy on me T_T)
7. Sigma - Eyeliner Brush E05 travel size (got it for free, yay!)
8. Bobbi Brown - Long-wear Gel Eyeliner in Jet Black
9. theBalm - Eyeshadow Palette Meet Matte Nude, Blush Instain Argyle (reviewed in previous posts)

I am not a beauty junkie, so I just keep my make up simple, one for each. Except for blush, I have three, and foundation, I have four (including samples in jar). 

So far I love my Real Technique expert face brush. I love it because I use it to apply liquid foundation, powder foundation, cc cream, bb cream. In one word: multitasker! I also love that this brush blends in the nose area very well :D. A hard worker really deserve to be washed as often and clean as possible. I do mine once a week with Sebamed derma soft wash emulsion (it's actually my facial soap, it's so gentle, so it'll be great for cleaning my brush) and hang it in my room with air conditioner, so when I wake up the next day, my brush will be as new as the first time ;)

Another love is Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray by Tresemme. I purchased the other Tresemme last year Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray and I liked it (it doesn't make my hair greasy at all, unlike Kerastase Ciment Thermique) so I repurchased. Been using it around one month, I can say, I love Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray more. Although it has less nice fragrance compared to Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray, somehow, it makes my hair smoother, and what I love the most is my hair dries faster than before (dry as done, not in a bad way). 

I think the other items work so-so, just fine or still sealed, so I can't review them yet. Or I think I write enough. Or I think I have to go home. The office hour is done! Yay! =P
