Kangen Sotosop

Postingan kali ini kutulis dengan bahasa Indonesia, soalnya berhubungan dengan hak cipta wekekekeke..
Jadiiii, sejak SMA (2003an) aku mulai berkenalan dengan Ph*toshop. Kala itu, yang bisa Ph*toshop masih jaraaang banget, dan kemampuan mengolah gambar jadi salah satu nilai plus-ku jaman SMA sampai kuliah. Diminta tolong ngedit buku tahunan kelas SMA, membuat poster-poster untuk himpunan mahasiswa, jualan kalender angkatan kuliah yang didesain sendiri, hingga membuat katalog waktu kerja di butik :p

Jaman suka meng-hijabified baju-bajunya desainer jadi hijab friendly pakai Photoshop :p Sila search di label Hijabified.
Tutorial memodifikasi baju untuk hijabified ada di sini.

Dulu aku pakai Ph*toshop bajakan (hiks). Semenjak ganti laptop, aku kehilangan Ph*toshop-ku dan harus beli CD *bajakan* lagi. Sudah 2x membeli CD sotosop bajakan, 2x pula registration key-nya ketahuan palsu! Ihik!

Jadilah lebih dari setahun aku nggak main Photoshop. Kangen sih, trus penasaran pengen beli sotosop yang asli. Ndilalah kok ternyata harga software original-nya hampir Rp 10 JUTA RUPIAH! Walaaaaahhhh..

Mencoba-coba bertahan dengan menggunakan software gratisan seperti Photoscape (mudah digunakan untuk sekedar memperbaiki gelap terang warna di foto supaya lebih appealing - nanti aku buat tutorialnya ya!), dan GIMP yang bisa bikin efek lebih canggih seperti Photoshop.... Tapiiii karena nggak terbiasa, apa yang bisa kukerjakan di Photoshop 5 menit, di GIMP aku butuh 20 menitan =__="

Alhamdulillah barusan aku dikasih Photoshop Portable sama Iena, blogger yang suka bagi-bagi tutorial editing gambar di Photoshop (cek di sini tutorialnya!)
Salah satu tutorial Iena: Photoshop Action

Apa sih Photoshop Portable itu?
Dari situs eHow:
Photoshop is a graphics program designed and sold by Adobe Systems, but the Adobe Portable software is not a part of the company's software collection. It is a free download available from independent sources, and is not sanctioned by the Adobe company.

Makasih yaaa Iena! ^_~ Jadiiii, mari kita utak utik foto pakai Photoshop lagiiii...

DIY Home Decor: Pop Frame!

Heyyy girls, this blue pop colored frame is my recent DIY thing for Home Decor :D

The frame was from my wedding picture--which I don't want to display at our minimalist house. Too formal pose, golden frame, and hubby wore purple beskap :p! And my jilbab was like... Margie Simpson's hair, too highhhh... Hahahahaaa...

Nahhh let's move on. Let's do something to make the frame match my home ambiance!

Why I Documented My Clothing

Long time not posting outfit thingy :p This is what I wore last week in Jogja, and repeated 2 days ago :D

Green cardi: Bandung FO, flower dress: tailor made, 
red bracelet: bought at Candi Prambanan Rp 1.000,- ($ 0.1!!!)

The Reason I Documented My Clothing(s) since the early time I blogged:
I'm not a fashionable woman, but I do like to take a picture (fashion journal) of my outfit. Why?
1. Sometimes I think I looked okay at the mirror, and go out... only to find out that my outfit doesn't suit me! (Bad combinations of colors or shape or whatever makes me uncomfortable during the day - usually seen at big mirrors at the malls wkwkwkkk). What I see in my room's mirror cannot show the wholeness, but a picture can.
2. When I looked good (according to myself) in a picture, it means I can repeat the same combinations all over again! Hahahahahahaa... Just like a catalog!
3. 'The Catalog' makes packing-for-traveling easier, since I know which top goes to which bottom :D

And since I used to repeat my mix & match, I actually only have small combinations of clothing - which means I can't do outfit post frequently. Coz I am wearing the same clothes as what I had posted :)))

Traveling: Hello Jogja! #1

Assalamu'alaikum! I feel so blessed to visit Jogjakarta, a very beautiful city :)
On Sunday, me and hubby rented a car to explore Jogja, but ended up specifically at Kaliurang Atas, where Museum Ullen Sentalu takes place, and some other attractions!

This was my second visit to Ullen Sentalu Museum (which I had visited in 2010 with my family). You know, when you really love a place, you want your loved one to see it too, so this time I asked my hubby to go there.
Hubby loved this museum so much! A MUST VISIT museum, if you're curious about Javanese heritage. It's like entering a secret garden which was gloomy yet beautiful. The guide will lead you to various era of Keraton Jogja, introduce you to their Sultan and princess, and see some ancient statue found in Java. No pictures are allowed, but there's some spot you can take a photo.

We take a rest at Beu Kenhof restaurant (placed in the museum) and enjoy the ambiance.

Bye, Ullen Sentalu!

While driving, hubby saw a sign to Merapi National Park. Here's what we can see in the lookout :') Mountains are trees!

Well since I wore this dress, I refused to walk longer :p (there's also Japanese bunker / Goa Jepang at the national park, by walking 1 km!)

And we visited Merapi Museum, which turned out to be... elegant!

There's a movie theater about Merapi, but I fell asleep >_< eughhh *tipe-tipe nempel molor*

And hunger stopped us at The Waroeng of Raminten! Such a calming place to eat :D Price was cheap, too!

Nice musholla :)

It was almost dark when we finished all of this journey, and we haven't visited Prambanan, Keraton, etc etc! One day is definitely not enough to explore Jogja ;)
