Lost

I honestly feel like I'm Giselle from Enchanted and by some act of providence thrown into harsh reality world, feeling lost, where I'm actually belong in a cartoon-life. Just singing all day long..
A super quick post before heading back to real-life.

Confession, God only knows what I was thinking when I pay this cat-ear-hair-clip in Disneyland. I thought I put it on for the sake of buying it. And when I still remember having them!

HongKong Shopping Report

Ni hao, blogger friends! I'm home! I can not tell you how good it feels to sleep in my own bed for a full 7 hours and have my own bathroom again :)
I am jumping straight into the business of my mundane daily activities and will be busier than usual until Tuesday or Wednesday. I volunteered to dance on my church birthday and I have to memorize thousand of steps in 5 days. I feel like my brain is going to explode. Wish us luck.

Here is as promised, my Hong Kong shopping purchases.. I sort of went crazy in Forever21. The price IS cheaper than in Indonesia but not that far away so I thought I just go crazy so I got a bigger profit.. I also seem to develop a love for tosca and mint colors. Hmm..

Blooming Dream

Still in Hong Kong! :)
Follow my twitter for updates --> @EscapeSweetest

Was actually questioning myself when I look at my reflection in the mirror. But it was one of those day when I just go for it and ended up liking these set of pictures a lot! <3

And do excuse my nails! I literally can't find time to do anything with my nails but scrapping the polish off by myself. Bad habit, I know..
Hopefully your day is blooming and dreamy :)

Vagabondage

Vagabondage - state of being a vagabond, wandering, vagrancy

By the time you're reading this, I'm sitting in the plane.. On my way to Hong Kong!
Do wish us (there are 8 just us, girls!) a safe flight and an even safer trip since we will be wandering all by ourselves in the pulsing city of Hong Kong. Despite my lack of enthusiasm, I am determined to have a good time. Have a splendid day, all!

I am reading Jon Krakauer, Into The Wild e-book for the long transit to keep me occupied. So here's a quote for you.. Well more like half a paragraph, but it's a good one, I promise you!

"The trip was to be an odyssey in the fullest sense of the word, an epic journey that would change everything. He had spent the previous four years, as he saw it, preparing to fulfill an absurd and onerous duty: to graduate from college. At long last he was unencumbered, emancipated from the stifling world of his parents and peers, a world of abstraction and security and material excess, a world in he felt grievously cut off from the raw throb of existence." - Jon Krakauer, Into The Wild.




Spotted : Sporting Sporty

 I guess I've been watching too many Gossip Girl than I can dare to mention.. Hence, the very witty title! Quite proud of it actually. Wore this incredibly eye-catching, colorful, rather sporty outfit last Monday for a lunch date with sis and then running some errands. Anyway, can't help but feeling like a walking sorbet with the pastels and that's just the way I like it.  I'm off to pack for my HongKong trip this Wednesday.. Also.. Planned to take outfit pics around the house for a scheduled post while I'm away. Happy Sunday, all!

Fabricated

I'm still alive! Thank you, God. These past few days I've been juggling between three cities.

I am EXHAUSTED.
I am so in a desperate need of a day at home doing nothing but reading a good book (just ordered On The Road - Jack Keruoac at the nearest bookstore, hopefully it arrives super duper soon!) and gallons of iced sweet tea. Which is of course, I couldn't afford. My schedule allows nothing of lounging around for a me-time. I'm not even excited about my HongKong trip anymore, which is next Wednesday. It sounded so.. exhausting. I don't supposed I could get a full refund of everything? LOL. I guess I'm that tired..

Went to The Fabrik two days ago. Decided to give a break to my floral tops and shorts and opt for a plain pastel shades of top and shorts. Couldn't help but to throw in my Nikicio floral blazer tho!

 The place has this retro vibe and sort of reminded me of pubs in London. Maybe that's just me. The food and cakes are actually pretty good too. Overall, a return visit is a must! And look who was our guest star, Anita from Anita Putri. She's just a ball of fun :)

Jaded

Just.. That's how I've been feeling lately. Slightly drained. Slightly annoyed. Overused perhaps. Just lacking of enthusiasm. Fading just a little bit. Dimming for a while, I guess.. My poor jaded self.. I'm not even sure what I've been doing. Really, I have enough sleep, enough food, maybe not enough soul-enrichtment.. I guess, I've been spending way too many hours with my Sims which is not exactly a great way to supplement my most-likely-almost-dry heart.

Would like to take this opportunity to send my many thank you for everyone who commented on my dog's death. Thank you so much for your uplifting comments. Truly, I'm blessed to have such kind blogging friends! <3

Sunday Music : Jaded by Aerosmith

In all it's misery
It will always be what I love and hated
And maybe take a ride to the other side we're thinking of
We'll slip into the velvet glove and be jaded


Yes, don't look so shocked. I actually love (not-too-rock) rock songs. I've been a fan of Daughtry for quite some time. And I have over abused my U218Singles CD.

Anyway, I hope I didn't bring you into such melancholic mood as well! I'm still my old silly self although not as silly as I normally do. I'm sure it's just another phase..
Happy Sunday and have a blessed one :)

You'll Find Us Chasing The Sun

Met the sweetest Anita from Anita Putri and she is just a tiniest singing machine that is full of charms. It feels surreal to finally met someone you've been interacting in the virtual world but it was fun and I'm looking forward for more and more blogger meet up!


Strangely enough, we wore floral item in our outfit. Guess our summer instinct is up and running..

Sun represents warmth, happiness, and basically life-giving. Plants cannot grow and produce oxygen without sun rays. I guess that's why we all become slightly happier when the sun is out. And now I'm off to find me some warmth, happiness, and soul-growth..

Anyway I really really badly want to read On The Road by Jack Kerouack. If any of you have it or saw it in a bookstore, kindly email me at steviatepi@gmail.com. The need is quite urging!
