Volcano

So after I spent a loving Christmas with my friends, as I mentioned on the previous post, I went to a beach called Anyer with my family. It is not the best looking beach we can find, but we haven't been there for so long. One of the reason why we went there is because we wanted to visit THE Krakatoa Island. Krakatoa Islands are volcanic islands that are located between Java and Sumatra Island.

"The Krakatoa volcanoes erupted and exploded in 1883, causing massive tsunamis and killing at least 36,417 people, while simultaneously destroying over two-thirds of Krakatoa island. The explosion is considered to be the loudest sound ever heard in modern history, with reports of it being heard up to 3,000 miles (4,800 km) from its point of origin. The shock waves from the explosion were recorded on barographs around the globe." - Wikipedia

After the eruption, it forms a new island called "Anak Krakatau" or "Child Of Krakatoa" and that island is where we stepped our foot on.

Blue Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy new year 2013 guys!
Hopefully everybody's having such a blessed christmas ( for those who celebrates christmas) and hopefully 2013 will be a tremendous year that filled with adventures and joy although in really,life will not be that simple :')

I had a very fun christmas with my second family ( church friend). And if you ask me why I called them my second family, it simply because I've known them my entire life. Their parents are friends with  my parent and usually we meet each other every saturday at church and sometimes on the other day. On christmas eve, we went to the mall for lunch and continued by karaoke-ing for 2 hours and we went to get some supply at the supermarket to cook for our dinner because we were gonna stay over at our friend's. We had a verryyyy long night. We even ate dinner at 00:00. It not dinner yet its not breakfast, and its definitely not 'midnight snack' because we ate a very lovely, home cooked mashed potato, chicken, mushroom teriyaki and some lovely vegetable. I am not sure you guys would care to write an essay long story of my christmas day. All I can say is just I had a very lovely days and I feel very blessed to have them. I hope you guys also had a great Christmas day.

Obligation

Its 11:44 pm in Jakarta and I am actually forcing myself to sleep even though how curious I am with the next episode of Gossip Girl ( currently on the 16th episode of 5th season,and yes I know the show has come to an end). But I cannot sleep knowing I have a lot to do in this short holiday. I can't stop thinking where to start on my portfolio,study to prepare my national exam, taking french course for my future and don't forget to maintaining a good school grades. As much as I want to spend my christmas abroad, I think I have to be aware which one is wants and which one is needs, First things first! Too much thing in my head I guess. Hoping everybody a happy holiday! Enjoy every single second of it and use the time wisely. Time flies so fast. Too fast

FREE!


TODAY IS THE LAST DAY OF EXAM! I AM SO HAPPY YES! After two weeks of sleepless nights and all the stress,I am not officially on holiday huyu! 

The exam ended at 10:30 am and after that I spent the whole day with my best friend. We spent the day  by watching High School Musical 1 and 2! hahahaha HSM 1 used to be our favorite movie when we were 10. We were also singing along throughout the movie and we couldn't stop laughing at all the awkwardness of the movie! But hey, It brings back such an amazing and funny memory of our past and  also the casts were still so small, I mean seriously Zac efron looked so skinny and tiny :3 

I had an amazing carbonara spaghetti for lunch from a little restaurant called Backyard ( if I'm not mistaken) in BSD and for an early dinner I only had some chocolate lava cake with ice cream and some macaroons from Bakerzin. The chocolate lave cake is not really that satisfying because its pricy yet so small and it doesn't taste that good, nothings specially about it and I got myself some Caramel macaron, Chocolate Raspberry macaron and Red Velvet macaron, but they are running out of Black Forest macaron ( which is my fav) so its pretty disappointing.





I am such a BIG fan of macaron, I mean who doesn't, right? But sadly, I haven't found BEST macaron place in Indonesia, especially in Jakarta. So I usually got them either from Bakerzin or Hotel Mulia. I really wish that Laduree or Pierre Hermes will open their branch in Indonesia #DreamBig!

NEON!


This is mine hoho

 My bracelet is FINALLY here! I ordered it in September but it arrived last saturday! looolll well i can't really blame them actually. Okay so this is what happened. I ordered 2 bracelets on September for me and a friend. I am a loser in giving people a present because I guess I'm not really that creative :D So at that time I was thinking to buy a bracelet for myself ( and supporting a friend of my friends which own this business) but then I remembered that I haven't give any present for my friend so I decided to also buy her one. So I told the owner that I want the bracelet to be sent to my house and to my friend's and she said i just need to pay the shipping cost for my friend's and my bracelet will be delivered to me by herself and it will be free ( because she said our houses is kinda close). At that time I was kinda short on money so I said just deliver both the bracelet to my house so it will be free :p but then she got busy and she just delivered them last saturday :|
The bracelet is pretty cute and edgy, I think! If you guys want to check them out here's the link but if you guys decided to buy, don't be like me hahahaha just use the regular shipping method :p
The one that I bought for my friend

Semester Exam

Today is the first day of the exam. I had only one exam yet the other stream had two but everyone had English in the morning. I'm not saying i'm super confidence to get a high score in English, but I feel like  I am able to do and finished the task asked and hopefully the result is as I expected.
Tomorrow I'll be having Business studies paper 1 followed by ICT paper 2. Hhhmmmmmm not so confidence about this two subjects. I used to have a great grades in the past (grade 11) but I seriously have no idea why my current grades are such a disappointment, well i know the fact that ICT is a hard and complicated subject but i'm not so sure with the Business Studies....
I HOPE I WILL BE ABLE TO FINISH BOTH EXAM SUCCESSFULLY!
I HAVE to!
I'm sure it will be a sleepless night tonight! but whatever...

BY THE WAY GOOD LUCK FOR ALL BINUSIANS AND HOPEFULLY EVERYONE WILL PASS IN THE EXAM AND FOR ALL THE STUDENTS OUT THERE WHO ALSO IN THEIR EXAM WEEK! MAY GOD BLESS US ALL!
FIIGHHHTTT

By the way, this week I've sold 72 cupcakes in total :') I'm pretty happy hihihi

Jeng jeng jeng

Soooo as I mentioned before, I bought another item from The Body Shop, it is a shower gel, lol. It called "Cranberry Joy" and it is a christmas edition. They also have Gingerbread christmas edition! I was soooooo excited to buy them both, but after I took a little sniff, the gingerbread smells like an Indonesian traditional drink called "bandrek"( i mean of course, bandrek is made from ginger lol) and the cranberry smells so fruity and fresh, so I bought it.

After I got home, I took a bath using Cranberry Joy and it was a bummmerrrr! I can't smell anything on my skin. But I wasn't so sure,so this morning I took another bath using the Cranberry Joy and I used a looottt of it. The result : same. A good quality of shower gel that I use,usually make my bathroom smells incredible, and Cranberry Joy shower gels doesn't make my bathroom smells nice.
So I can conclude the product is a bummer. If you like the smell of Cranberry Joy,I recommend to buy the body butter or the hand cream or the glittery body lotion (though I don't like it because its too glittery)
