Ika's Wedding (and college reunion)

Attended my best friend's wedding on February 12... 
Sooo happyyyy to meet my good old friends!!
Eating es  puter, having a good chit chats (just like we did at college)... T___T aaahhh miss those moments!!

Taking picture with all guests from Industrial Engineering 2005 :D Whoaaa there were plenty of us!!
Taking picture with DK family. Some of our friend called us: "ibu-ibu PKK" hahahahaa

And don't forget to capture the happy faces! :D SMIILEEEEEE!!!

For me, it kinda hurt me in a sweet way remembering my college. To have a good friends like my friends, to have so many precious moments, aaahhh I know things will never be the same again... We've stepped in our own lives (and futures)... This will never happen again: "kumpul angkatan" or doing tasks in lab, or hunting discounted KFC at 3 to 5 PM. Miss you all guys!

BTW, check my February posts... Today is the last day of my giveaway!

Miss Pinkish

Last week I wore pink dress and suddenly half of my office told me I'm beautiful *wahahahahahahahhh*
(Lately I've been too lazy to dress up so when I wear cute outfit, everyone notice)

From now on I've decided to wear good clothes everyday, coz it can boost the good moods.
I've decided to minimize the number of clothes in my closet and keep only the ones which makes me happy.
Uhm, by deciding to wear good clothes, it doesn't mean not to wear the same clothes twice or more. But it's kind of choosing quality over quantity. Keep only the pieces you love the most. Give away clothes that leads you to the bad moods (whether it actually doesn't fit you, or unflatter your body, or too tight or too sexy?)
So, by the end of this month, I guess a big pile from my closet will go out. Leaving some empty space. So that I can breathe more freely.
I've decided to live in a simple way of life.
This pink dress, keep it or leave it?
Hmmm... keep it..

Been reading http://www.becomingminimalist.com/ and it made me re-think about owning things :)
Visit the site to know more about minimalist way of life.
Live freely!!! Yaayyy!!!

Btw, you still have the chance to join my February giveaway ;)

Honey, Caramel, and Chocolate

Attending my friend's wedding and didn't know what to wear. And I wear the clothes I made for a fashion show (here & here) hahahaha... Since I gain some weight, the dress (almost) didn't fit my body :p A little bit tight at waist, but by holding breath, it fits well hahahaa *tahan napas*
dress & bolero: made by me
With high school friends at Putu's wedding. Thanks Innes for the photos! ^__^

By the way, the food that day was served by Sonokembang Catering, hihihihi
*eating tom yum soup, bakso, and caramel pudding :9*

Scrapbooking Time

Remember my post about Hijabee Sparkling Sunday? There were 3 famous speakers (Mrs. Aurelia the personality coach, Mrs. Dian Pelangi & Mrs. Lulu the fashion entrepreneur), and we needed a memorable gift for them! "Plakat" (a kind of trophy/souvenir) was too cliche, so we decided to create a scrapbook for each of them.
At a meeting, I brought all the supplies and asked help from the other committee. Hahaha they're sooo helpful!! We're having fun doing the creative stuffs (while on the other side of the meeting, they were too serious :p)
With mb. Anna (blue veil), Chika (red veil), Pypynk (pink veil) and Hafni (light blue veil & polkadot shirt)

Inspiration From Japanese Book

I love Japanese craft's book! Here are some scanned images from a book I borrowed (thanks tante Andri!).
Aaaah lovelyyy *_*
Oversized tunic. It hides our body shape, yet it looks cute too! (Or is it because the model's already beautiful? Haha)

Wrapped skirt. I LOVE the navy blue skirt! But I guess it's not suitable for pear shaped body like me :p

Fabric Quilting. Those quilts are so neat & creativeeee... I want em alll *_*

Aaaaa.... Do you like them too?
In my opinion, crafts in Japanese' books are never dull & never "norak". Every crafter has the soul to deliver perfection, from the best materials to the neat technique... We should do the same, shouldn't we? *I mean, passion for perfection*
