Joyeux Noël!

Merry christmas everybody! Hopefully you guys have a blessed christmas whether you spent it with your family or alone just like me. (not to mention I spent the D-day, 25th working HA!) But who cares, I had fun buying presents for my family in Indonesia and they just FaceTimed me saying they love it :')

ANYWAY, tips and trick time!
The holiday season is finally here! And what better things to fill your holidays than spending a week or more of travelling with your love one? Either you are travelling to visit your family and friends or just a simple relaxing vacation to discover new place, some information and tips would be very helpful to make your trip easier! Nobody wants to have a passport or overweight-luggage problems to kill your good mood, right? So here are some useful tips that you can practice for your next vacation trip!

1. Put your passport, itinerary and other important documents in one folder or pouch so you don’t have to your precious 5 minutes to dig inside your bag to find your passport.

2. Before leaving for your trip, it’s good to have some immunisation to prevent getting any sickness. For example travellers who wants to go to the Middle East, are recommended to take some vaccination such as Hepatitis A and B, Malaria, etc.

3. Don’t forget to clear your handbag and hand-carry luggage from any kind of liquids. You don’t want your Chanel perfumes to be thrown into the airport’s trash bin.

4. Check the luggage policy of your airline. Some airlines will give you a fewer amount of baggage compare to other airline but will add some more to your hand-carry luggage. For example, from Indonesia to France, Air France gives 23 kg checked baggage and 12 kg hand-carry luggage while Malaysian Airline gives 30 kg checked luggage and 7 kg hand-carry.

5. Its better to have 1 or 2 kg lighter of luggage, to prevent exceeding the limits because there might be a slight differences between your scales and the airport’s.

6. If you are planning to buy extra luggage for your trip, it is cheaper to buy them online from the airline’s website rather that buying them at the airport. The airport will rip you off!

7. Before packing, try to shortlist the items you want to bring to prevent over-packing.

8. Do not fold your clothes, its better to roll them to create more space inside your luggage! Beside, it will looks tidier than just folding and stack them.

9. Pack clothes/ items that you can use more than once! Mix and match is the best policy to look stylish while traveling! Don’t forget to plan and visualise your outfit before deciding to bring them.

10. If you still have so many things to bring but no more space inside your luggage, you can use some of your clothes and layered it up! Beside, it can warm you up in your cold airplane.

11. If your going to bring some liquids like shampoo or perfume, don’t forget to wrap them inside plastic bags and put your perfume in between clothes. So if the container breaks or squeezed your stuffs are safe!

12. Bring your own adaptor, in case of your chargers’ plug are different from your hotel’s plug, you can still charge your gadgets!

13. One handy travel scale will be very useful

14. Its better to have some local cash rather than relying only on your credit cards. In some country, the use of credit cards in every transaction is not really popular. And of course, in emergency situations, you might need to use cash.

15. But in the same time, don’t bring TOO much of cash, though. The pickpockets will definitely know which one are the tourist and targets you. They know that tourist usually bring tons of cash inside their bag. So be aware!

16. Bring spare memory card. You don’t want to miss a great photo of the purple sunset because your memory card is already full.

Hopefully the tips and trick will be useful! <3 Happy holidays

Dark Romanticism

While I was disappearing from my blog for almost 3 weeks, I discovered how much weight I have 'gained'. And I am using a quotation mark because I actually have not gained any, but my cheeks made me looks like I gained a lot. Yes, I do admit that I have been eating a lot of chocolates and basically a lot of everything, but I didn't gain any because I walk a lot. A LOT. But I notice that my cheeks are very chubby and when I was skype-ing with my parents (and also my maid) back home, they said I look so fat. "Aduh neng gendutan banget ya neng?", my maid said. Oh well.

(not to mention winter is coming. Meaning, so more foods and less sweat)

Orange Leaves

Its here, its already here! The beginning of hardcore wind and crazy coldness! As you can see, I am totally not ready for winter. While everybody was wearing mostly black and other dark ensemble, I was wearing my usual, normal fun pants! Ha! (I know most people thought that I'm weird) I also haven't buy any thick coats and jackets. Oh well. I tried to get a coat earlier today, but the result was : Spent some big amount of euros without getting myself any warm autumn/winter clothes (thanks to urban outfitters and topshop) I felt like a shopaholic today, which was an awesome feeling :') :')

Pont Neuf

 Yesterday my girls and I decided to explore more about Paris since we all are foreigners. We tried to find inspirations and topics to talk about for our projects. I am currently on holiday for 2 weeks with a minimal of 3 assignments and some tests are waiting for us after we got back. And to be honest, I'm kinda behind all my projects right now.... Wish me luck guys! and have a great weekend <3

Maroon

Today is the last day of school yeaayy! I will be having my 2 weeks holiday for a French holiday called Toussaint. But yeah in this 2 weeks of holiday, I will have to do like 3 projects, or maybe more, I can't remember.
Anyway, my day is ended actually quite well, we went to a hotel in Paris called Le General Hotel for our History class. And it was actually more like a chit chat session with the teacher ahahaha. He taught us about the table manner and some general french manner and stuff and because our class is very international (my friends are literally coming from all over the world) so we shared about our manners in our own country. It was fun

Oversized

Last week I went to a chinese restaurant in China Town to get a Indonesian-like chicken noodle with my friend and one lovely Indonesian family. It was very good and made me kinda miss home. Anyway, after a lovely lunch, we walked down the street and saw a secondhand store. I didn't wanna spend money at that day but when I saw this oversized jacket, I started to change my mind :") Especially then I saw the price tag, which was only 10 Euros, oh yeay :') So comfy and cheap. So then at that day, I spent almost 90 euros lol, although I only spent 13 euros in the vintage store hhhmmm.....

Custard

Hey guys! I'm really annoyed that my internet at the apartment is troubled because of the rain and its already almost 1 week, but they haven't get them fixed. I'm so annoyed right now hu. Anyway, my mom is already home in Jakarta right now ( she joined me in Paris for 1 month) I feel so bad because I didn't show her that I'm actually sad that she was leaving while she was so sad when she was about to leave. You know, like she cried in the middle of the night when she was trying to sleep. Oh well, life must go on. Anyway, I stayed at my friend's place so I was wearing her top and skirt in this post. lol
