The love that I'm drinking is overflowing

Can not stop marveling at the interior of Central Park's Nanny's Pavillon. Pretty isn't it? Went here with friends around early August, I tried their baked rice and it came with a plate (more like a bowl) bigger than my face (taking photo with it helps making your face looks smaller). Taste and portion was satisfying. There were some problems with the waiters though, they couldn't smile well, I suppose so in exchange I violated almost every corner of their restaurant with the sound of my camera muahahaha. First week of school so far is doing good. I learned a lot of new things and find new great friends. But, still, the price of drawing equipments is out of mind. This month's expense is.......whoaa

We visited Borobudur on our 6th day. It was beautiful! We were told before that it was gonna be really sunny there but thankfully it turned out not to be. Adult visitors are required to wear sarong the management has prepared in order to get to the temple (^▽^) The scenery was really beautiful and it wasn't that packed so the whole place gave a really peaceful surrounding. I think it's best to visit Borobudur on low season to relish it truly.
As for life, I'm back home now! And is going to leave again because tomorrow class is starting. Orientation was great! 4 days only and I already missed my bed so bad haha (and lost a kg too...). I still read blog updates from you guys with the help of campus wi-fi and my mobile but haven't been able to leave feedback because haven't installed internet yet at my (second) home. Blogwalking is the finest when it's done on pc, really. Hoping everything goes fine. Well then, good luck for life, everyone!

カリカリ歯ごたえ欲しいし

The days before Eid were like heaven. The roads were less vacant and there was no jam, not to mention less population of humans. I miss quiet Jakarta (◡﹏◡) met up with Monica and her daughter Miruku for a fat piling day,
and that's it. It's rather a pointless blog post with pictures of food and doll isn't it hahaha.
Anyway I've migrated half of my stuffs to my condo. I'm moving out tomorrow. Will be busy with orientation and first days of school, I guess. So no more spending whole day in front of computer eating snacks (´□`。)

Japan Haul

I realized there are still some photos left from the trip so I decided to make well use of them. Actually I want to compile it together with day 3 post but it becomes too long, so...(❁º◡º❁)
This post is kinda boring because it's filled with words, just skip if you want, but I should say I had fun tracing back the memories and impressions Japan had left inside me hehe.

Day 1
DSC_0797
Beauty products! After dealing with Disney Sea's Spring Voyage cups we went to Shinjuku, got free time for about 45 minutes before dinner. Uncles will be uncles, my dad went inside LABI because of the flashy electronics but when I passed by the elevator I saw they sold beauty supplies too on particular level. Off I went.
After wasting 15 minutes squatting (with skirt, yes, so unglam haha) in front of the bottom rack deciding on which false lashes brand I should choose (until the staff were getting suspicious of me I think), I bought Diamond Lash (¥1050). Then the hair dye (¥690 each). Just in case things run out when I need them, I better buy a lot; the hoarder logic I always think ;___; but they're pretty pricey so i restrained. At least it's cheaper than when you do pre-order on online shops (╯_╰”)

Day 2
DSC_0799
Tokyo banana (¥500 for 4 pcs) I bought on a souvenir shop at the rest area. People says it tastes amazing but I only love the banana custard cream, really delicious! The sponge cake is soft and perfectly plain, yes, but I don't feel anything special, same with the strawberry cream :S
The rest were things I bought at Gotemba Premium Outlets. I got the knit cardigan at Olive des Olive for ¥970 because they were having sale. It was marked down from ¥3000-ish (woah). And the cute wooden ornament and phone strap were from Francfranc ⊂( ̄(エ) ̄)⊃
When I wanted to pay for the cardigan I took out a 500 yen, and before I searched for more coins the staff said they didn't accept small change while showing me a paper with English-written rules (I....still have a pile of 1 yen coins at home they're really hard to get rid of). Then walked around Gotemba, and in the end decided to pay a visit to Olive des Olive again, this time, bringing more plastic bags inside.
At the cashier I was greeted as usual with a phrase I never knew the exact meaning (what if they actually mock you but you don't know) by a different shop staff. After she put my purchase inside the plastic bag she asked something and I just showed that confused smile. Then she asked if I could speak English, and turned out she asked my permission to give me a bigger bag so that I can put all my belongings inside (✪O✪) little gesture that makes you happy.
Pretty oneesan with long wavy hair, you are so kind.

It has clip inside some more ;__; so generous


Day 3 DSC_0801
It was the time that I realized was my last chance to marvel at Japan, so the shopping went a little crazy haha.
After going to Asakusa, we visited Akihabara. I took purikura (better alone than never right!) for ¥400. The Hello Kitty charm was a gift from shopping at Laox.
After that the tour bus brought us to Ginza and after passing by expensive stores mourning about life I bought G.U culottes, on sale for just ¥490 each muahaha (^◇^) And purchased Tweety folding umbrella because it was drizzling. Oh, and went in Hanamasa to buy Calpis after my tour guide said it's a popular drink.
I was walking around Venus Fort in Odaiba alone (...again) when I saw this 100 yen shop. I want to cry. Partially because it was really cheap, even cheaper than Indonesia Daiso. And also because I didn't bring money on me. Only leftover changes. After looking around the shop for several times, I purchased the glasses case, bag, charms, and those tweezers people often use for hanging polaroid. Still regret why I couldn't buy more ヽ(゚Д゚)ノ   there were also cute socks and lunchboxes too....
And the Summer themed Pocky and chocolate were from Family Mart on the ground floor of my hotel.

I think I end up writing about unimportant things more haha sorry about that. It's almost 4 AM here. I hope I can wake up early then write more overdue post before uni taking my life over(●^o^●)

Blossom of snow

One of the highlight of the off (ofception..) road trip at Mount Merapi. The Javanese Edelweiss field! (✿ฺ。✿)
I kind of regret not wearing layers of pastel coloured clothes and laces because who thought the field would be this pretty (︶︹︺) but, oh, well. Next time, maybe. I don't want to stand out the most from our group with the mismatch clothing, my hair colour is already different from the rest in photo it's not nice (please dye your hair soon guys). Oh, and more on the off road later (・∀・)ノ I...need to pack things for my new place....uni is starting soon, so fast....
