A Little Bit of Everything

A little bit of everything in random order, I just have to let it out

Gel manicure and pedicure
Every time my mom's here (she lives outside town) she always go to Nail Plus or Glow to have pedicure and manicure, so when I had my time off, mom told me to go with her. It had been ages since I got manicure or pedicure, hence the therapist asked me if I want a gel manicure. I was like: Ha? What is that? Yes, I am so out of date :P. Cut the story short, me and mom were done having neat and pretty nails. It's been 3 weeks that my hand nails still 80% in a good condition (not cracked like ordinary manicure), meanwhile my foot nails still looking as new as the first time (amazed!). Couple days ago I tried to remove the nail polish with aceton, but nothing happened. And when I tried to pull the nail polish, my nail become ugly leaving with some scratches. Uh oh. I tried googling searching any method, but came with no answer. So I called Nail Plus and asked, and they told me to go to their counter because it can only be removed by their special liquid (cost idr 49k T_T). Heck, the removing process was a little complicated, including using some aluminium foils, really a time wasting. But hey I got my nails back. Really I have to think more to get gel manicure/pedicure next time :/

First time waxing the underarm
While removing the nail polish I chatted with my therapist at Nail Plus and asked her about waxing the underarm: is it hurt or have any side effect. She said waxing underarm basically is the easiest way to get rid of the unwanted hair, with minimum side effect, unless you have sensitive underarm area. And it can be done not more than 10 minutes. I'm in! Thanks to technology! First step is warming the gel about 15 minutes, so I just wait on their comfy couch while watching Katie Perry on MTV unplugged (She is so pretty, omg! I can look at her makeup all day!). Then the therapist says the gel is ready, so I was escorted to the back room, and asked to lay down on their bed. I expect the waxing will be hurt so much, but it wasn't! Hooray! She spread the warm (a little bit hot) gel on my underarm and put a paper on it, and I just have to hold a little pain only one second when the therapist pull the paper off, then she finished it with applying some layers of lotions. And all done.  My very first time waxing underarm was not so bad at all, actually I am thinking of doing it regularly (the price is idr 89k).

Parents Meeting
It was my parents meeting my bf's parents and grandparents and other relatives for the first time. They came at Sunday morning, have a little chat and discussion about our future. It's a huge step :") and I can't thank God enough. Hope everything goes smoothly, God speed!

2014 Resolution
Unlike any other year, I don't really have one this year. Oh, I want to have clear skin (meaning : stick to Shiseido Ibuki series, no more trying this or that). Since I found Shiseido launches their new range of skin care called Ibuki, I purchased the starter and fell in love immediately. Using Ibuki series regularly I've been seeing my skin looks healthy as ever, no more redness, no more dry and patchy skins. My foundations sets really well on my skin now *happy*.
Any other resolution? Guess, I will keep this part updated every time I want something.

My niece's turning 1
I love herrrrr!

Having fun in Instagram
The only social media that I am using now is Instagram. I find it very fun, especially when you follow someone who share something you really like. In my case, make up and more make up! I am not a make up junkie, but I do have a pleasure feeling just by seeing other make up hauls or just to stay in touch with the newest make up stuff. Other fun thing in Instagram is seeing cute baby boy (Xiaxue's son!), food and more food (ladyironchef), or beautiful painting (ayangcempaka) and etc. I just love seeing beautiful pictures!

I did my mom's make up
I was really happy that mom trusted me to do her make up at my cousin's wedding reception. Not bad at all I guess. She basically have a pretty face and healthy skin, so my job was a little easy that evening, hehehehe ;;)
Missing my bf
Now that the job has been taking him once or twice a month to go to Jakarta, I find that something is missing. I miss him being around T_T

Office trip to Bandung

(Found this post in my draft from 14Dec 2013, I really was a busy bee, forgetting to publish this post x_x)


Holaaaaa, from the top! Because i am writing on the plane. To our way to Bandung. Hahaha.. 
Feel sleepy actually but can't sleep. We just had our anual meeting yesterday, so say hi to my panda eyes. But thank god for the well done presentation. All the sleepness nights are worth it.

(Continuing the post when we are back to Surabaya)

Anyway, we are having this office trip (finally) as a reward for our hard work for the presentation. Though the preparation for itinerary were really tight (only 2 days before the day) and though we only visit Bandung for two days, WE HAD FUN! 

We ate a lot, we played at Trans Studio, we ate again, we chatted until midnight at the hotel, we shopped at Rumah Mode, and we ate more. Hahaha.. Thank you Boss! 

Catching Up

Hi! Happy new year! As the year goes by, no matter good or bad, I thank God to have a grateful and joyful heart. Hopefully this year will bring more happiness and prosperity to all of us.

This early year, I got a chance to visit Singapore with my parents, sister, brother in law and my cute 2 years old nephew! Travelling is not easy bringing a toddler, you know, but it was also so fun to have him around, we laughed a lot, we just love him. And I really think that parents' happiness is being with their grandkids is really true. 

We did a lot of shopping at Singapore, especially for kids, because we were buying for my nephew and niece. And I have a good time at Sasa, Watsons, and Sephora looking around for makeup. Will post my Singapore haul at different post.

See ya in other post! Gotta be back working ;)
