Enjoy My Book Club: Gallagher Girls Series #5

Greetings! ❤

This week I bring my most favorite Teenlit genre of all time, The Gallagher Girls Series which I’ve collected since in college almost 9 or 10 years ago.

This series has 6 books that related one to each other. At first I only had the first 4 books. Then I’ve waited sooo long until the Indonesian publisher decided to re-publish all the books once at a time until the last book.

This Teenlit genre series is so different from any other Teenlit series. The story is unpredictable and not just about love of teenager. This is more complicated ad yet interesting. The more I read, the more I can’t stop turning the page on and hunger for the next stories.

The main story is about school which teach girl student how to be a good spy without any other outsiders know that this is a spy school. The school is classified. For you who love unusual school detective stories (well, actually spy school stories) , this one is recommended for you to read.

I think that’s all for me to review the book I read lately. We’ll see you all again soon! Thank you for reading!

Enjoy My Book Club: Assassination Classroom Manga by Yusei Matsui

Greetings! ❤

First time I know Assassination Classroom when I see Yamada Ryosuke plays the role of Shiota Nagisa in live action movie based on the same title anime. Since the characters in the story are funny and entertaining, I decided to read the manga. So here I am adding the list of my reading this year for Assassination Classroom.

If you want to read a light reading and entertaining, then you should probably take a peek inside of this manga. I read this because I need a time for myself to laugh and this manga gives me that time. I love the character of Koro-sensei who always supported his students and never gave up to encourage them to be good.

Although the story has a little bit contradiction about being an assassin and build a good character, some stories can tell us good side of life that we should try as a human being. Besides entertaining, this series also gives us suggestion to follow our heart and never give up to our bad situations.

I think that’s all for me to review the book I read lately. We’ll see you all again soon! Thank you for reading!

Daily Pictures: Pineapple

Greetings! ❤

Yesterday, I bought two pineapples from the market and planned to make them two glass of  delicious green juices.

Here’s the the things you need:

  • 1 Pineapple, cut it in smaller part.
  • 1 Lemon, squeeze the water out.
  • 1 bunch of Mustard Green, cut it in a smaller part.
  • Water depends on how many things you put in the blender. Usually I only use quarter glass of water.

To make them a healthy green juice, I use blender and pour everything in the blender and mixed them up. Then voila! Your juice is ready to be served. Don’t be fooled by the way it looks like because your glass will be green, but I assured you, it’s delicious.

Well, recently I am so loving Pineapple because it looks so interesting, I don’t know why. Perhaps, it’s just because I love tropical look so much. Besides delicious, I think Pineapple is beautiful in shape and colors, before you cut it for your meals of course. No wonder the creator of Spongebob Squarepants use it as the inspiration for Spongebob’s house.

I think that’s all for today. You can also take a peek at my Instagram to enjoy  my works. We’ll see you all again soon! Thank you for reading!

Midweek Projects: Wedding Wednesday, The Beginning

Greetings! ❤

I delayed this post for too long and I’ve decided to talk about my wedding plan for this September with you starting from now.

I want to share about the preparations, the difficulties, and all the things related to wedding plan. I must remind you, although it looks so simple, but the fact, it’s tricky and enough to make you feel dizzy. Haha!

Well, I am not a wedding consultant, but I think I can help you a little bit about how the things get done while planning your wedding. Okay, first thing first about planning a wedding is making the plan:

  • The Date: set the date and let the party begins. It’s best you can plan the wedding at least one year before the date you’ve set. It’s the best time to prepare everything properly.
  • The Budget: this one is important since you will use most of anything for your wedding with money. You can choose a big wedding, or intimate wedding. Make sure your family got your understanding about this.
  • How Many Guests: this is important to set your guests list and linked it to the wedding budget. The more guests you have, the more budget you have to spend for place and foods. Once again, make sure you convince your family about this decision.
  • The Venue: where you want to hold your Holy Matrimony and your wedding party at. Indoor or outdoor, big place or small, and luxury or the modest one.
  • The Style: either you want to make it traditional or universal. It’s important to set it from the beginning so then you can set the party fit with your style.

I think those are five questions you have to answer at the beginning of your wedding plans. Set the answer first then you can move to the next step of the plan.

For me, since I live in Eastern culture, mostly parents will interfere your planning decisions. This is the tricky one because all heads will stand up in what they believe it’s best. But still, final decision is in your hands as the couple who hold the plans. Don’t let this make you got a headache. Keep calm and carry on!

If there’s a wedding fair near your area, you can visit to get knowledge and information, especially about the venue and the wedding consultant. But if you like to set all the plans by yourself, you can find information about all things you need in wedding fair.

Next I will share with you about the planning that I chose for the wedding at first and all the problems come within. We’ll see you all again soon! Thank you for reading!

Daily Pictures: Spread Your Wings!

Greetings! ❤

So this is my one lucky shot because it provided by the nature naturally.

I found this butterfly in front of my house this morning. It’s taken by my Sony Xperia J camera and captured the beautiful colors on the wings. What I love about the wings is the symmetry between left wing and right wing. They have perfectly same mirrored colors and shape.

What should I captured for tomorrow? I guess we’ll never know.

I think that’s all for today. You can also take a peek at my Instagram to enjoy  my works. We’ll see you all again soon! Thank you for reading!

Daily Pictures: Never Stop Learning

Greetings! ❤

Today I will share with you what I do recently every two hours in the afternoon. It’s foreign languages learning. And yes, I learn two languages in one day and I find it fun!

DSCN1199_smaller

Since high school I am interested to learn foreign language. First foreign language I learned, besides English, was French with my friend who’s native speaking French and Germany, and also Japanese and Korean. She helped me a lot at the basic of French language. But since I got in to uni life, my curiosity of foreign language was bigger and I learned Japanese at that time.

Up to now, I still learn foreign language. I learn 6 languages, English (to review and getting deeper), French (since I forgot most of the grammar), Japanese (I still have to learn Kanji, a lot), Korean, Italian, and Spanish. But my main focuses are Japanese and Korean at the moment.

Somehow, I read that learning language can train your brain properly. I think it’s true, because when you make a progress of the learning, your brain feels like so happy and you can feel a positive vibes also. But remember, when you have to stop your learning activity, you need to stop. Your brain also needs a break.

I think learning foreign language isn’t complete without having a friend who is native to the language. Or you can remind your language learning by watching movies or listening to songs that relate to your language learning at the time. That’s what I am doing now.

I love to watch Japanese Dorama (right now I am watching Cain and Abel) and listen to Korean musics (I don’t like to watch Korean Drama too much, basically). It will improve your ears and your knowledge for vocabulary too.

I think that’s all for today. You can also take a peek at my Instagram to enjoy  my works. We’ll see you all again soon! Thank you for reading!

Style It Tuesday: Tropical at Home

Greetings! ❤

Today is still in Eid Ul Fitr holiday mood for most people here in Indonesia. But for me, it’s the time to work on some things on the Blog. But working at home give me some outfit inspirations.

For me, even if you’re working from home, wearing a comfortable yet stylish outfit is a must. You can imagine, it’s holiday mood, you’re still home-working, and you’re wearing your pajamas on and your hair is too messy, is it fun? It’s NOT fun at all! Your mood will dropped to the bottom and choose to go back to sleep while your works undone.

Always set a nice outfit while working at home and separate your office from your bedroom. Like I always said, never doubt the power of nice outfit. It will boost your mood into positive and you can stay productive, even it’s just a T-Shirt and short with a pair of flip flop, but you can make a nice one.

I think that’s all for today. You can see my look book in my Pinterest from my Polyvore set and some pictures from my past photoshoot. Dress in style, and be yourself! We’ll see you all again soon! Thank you for reading!
