Golden Sunday

Ray of golden lights and its sudden playground.
You don’t need no memory
Just a place to call your own
As we drift into the zone

"Commitment may be a problem, but long term happiness is likely with someone who is willing to provide the freedom & support that Libra seek."

See @EverythingLibra if you have this 'what kind of Libra people are' question in mind.
I feel described on most words.

Current doze: Topshop A/W 2011

Uber love the TOPSHOP A/W collection. It reminds me much to the 60's-70's figures.
Psychobilly is an updated and feminine take on the rebellious dressing of the teddyboys of the 1960s. Modern twists elevate sleek tailoring and clean shapes; slim cigarette trousers in an opulent sapphire jacquard are the essential ankle skimming length and a simple t-shirt shape comes in panels of monochrome silk. A much more hourglass silhouette takes over from that of the boyish with semi body-con dresses celebrating the waist and skirts predominantly in pencil or mid-calf length.
Mixing elements of the laid-back 60s with a neater finish from the 40s post-war Britain, Thrift is an eclectic dressing-up box of girly vintage-inspired pieces. Dresses are ladylike in pretty florals and ditsy prints, appearing in a classic tea dress or drop waist shift shape and look newest in mid-calf length. Again, skirts are longer in length, are sometimes pleated or with side slits and look prim when worn with feminine peter pan blouses buttoned to the neck. Colour is important; tapered trousers come in jade or tangerine and bright prints appear throughout, whilst the overall silhouette is soft and feminine.

Glamrock draws inspiration from the 1970s, dismissing any grunge from the decade for an all-out glamorous and rockstar look. Faux fur is key to this trend and the bigger and brighter the better; an oversized shaggy coat made from goat hair comes in a fluoro pink, a sleek faux-fur stole in deep amethyst has extravagant pompoms and a mini skirt is made from amber-coloured feathers. Casual garments are given luxe treatment; a simple black parka is indulgent with a thick glossy black faux fur lining, skinny jeans are given a hi-tech coating and boxy silk shirts are elevated with all-over beading. 

With rich folkloric inspiration being key, Bavaria is a modern and distinctly luxurious take on keeping warm this winter. Outerwear is functional whilst indulgent; a khaki parka has faux fur sleeves and a gilet is extra long and made from patchwork sheepskin. Cable and aran knits are chunky and oversized to defend against the cold, and a usually floaty smock dress or blouse comes in a cosy heavy velvet.

"There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in live --happiness, freedom, and peace of mind-- are always attained by giving them to someone else."

Banana nut muffin

This morning in the middle of my mid exam weeks, I had intended to go jogging. But then my ass felt so heavy and did the baking to fulfill my sugar rush instead :p

The happy thing is my family apparently love it! It's kinda unusual, since they dislike sweets. Like every time I make cupcakes, brûlée, or kind like that, I'm just gonna eat those & get fat myself. But when I got home just now & it's only 5 pieces out of 15 left.... I felt glad :' )

p.s. take home exams r suxxxx

The Aleph

I'm a huge Paulo Coelho's fan. Like, who doesn't?
I wonder why his writings could be so easy, provoking, & simply mind blowing. Seriously.
Am currently reading his latest book -The Aleph.

"We learn in the past, but we are not the result of that. We suffered in the past, loved in the past, cried, and laughed in the past, but that's of no use to the present. The present has its challenges, its good and bad side. We can neither blame nor be grateful to the past for what is happening now. Each new experience of love has nothing whatsoever to do with past experiences. It's always new."

"We are not the person other people wish we were. We are who we decide to be. It's always easy to blame others. You can spend your entire life blaming the world, but your successes or failures are entirely your own responsibility. You can try to stop time, but it's a complete waste of energy."

Feelin like quoting every words in the book.
You're the God, Mr. Coelho.

check our blog and teaser
Prepare yourself, pixelate yourself!

Take Time

Take time to think
It's the source of all power
Take time to read
It's the fountain of wisdom
Take time to play
It's the source of perpetual youth
Take time to be quiet
It's the opportunity to seek God
Take time to be aware
It's the opportunity to help others
Take time to be friendly
It's the road to happiness
Take time to dream
It's what the future made of
Take time to pray
It's the greatest power on earth
Take time to give
It's too short a day to be selfish
Take time to laugh
It's the music of the soul
Take time to forgive
It's the road to have a peaceful heart
Take time to forget
It's the opportunity to live your life
Take time to work
It's time to prepare of success
Take time to travel
It's the opportunity to see the world
Take time to love and be loved
It's God's greatest gift

There's always a time for everything.
..including for these babies.
pardon my midnight hunger, fellas :p

"You're gorgeous, you old hag, and if I could give you just one gift ever for the rest of your life, it would be this. Confidence. It would be the gift of confidence. Either that or a scented candle."

but I need you now

Baloon ride

Take me to a baloon ride,
to erase these feelings I'm tired to fight.
At anytime I'm feelin like want to ignite,
I know we're on our way to be the light.

I will and must get there.
Cappadocia, wait for me.

been reading an inspiring book "9 Summers, 10 Autumns" by Iwan Setyawan and found this famous old-school Indonesian poem in it.
I was kinda laughed to myself & promised  to share it with you.
(I believe most of you have ever heard or see this, tho)


by Chairil Anwar

Kalau sampai waktuku
‘Ku mau tak seorang kan merayu
Tidak juga kau

Tak perlu sedu sedan itu

Aku ini binatang jalang
Dari kumpulannya terbuang

Biar peluru menembus kulitku
Aku tetap meradang menerjang

Luka dan bisa kubawa berlari
Hingga hilang pedih peri

Dan aku akan lebih tidak perduli

Aku mau hidup seribu tahun lagi.

"when your feeling ain't the same and your body don't want to
but you know you gotta let it go
'cause the party ain't jump like it used to
even though it might ruin you
let it burn..."

October Rain

finally the new season has started.
some said.. the running water would let your emotions flow.
I guess the raindrops will do the same way when they reach the earth.

such a peaceful feeling among the hecticnesses around me <3



Words are that powerful.
Bruise from a hit or a punch will fade in a period of time.
But the pain from a bunch of words might take longer time to be eased.
(Been there, done that)

So my dearest friends,
please do mind your every single spoken or written words. Anytime, anyhow.
(even on your very emotional phase)

Never ever let them make you or everyone else down.

"My happiness depends on me, so you're off the hook and demonstrate it.
BE HAPPY, no matter what they're doing.
Practice feeling good, no matter what.
And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel, and then you'll love then all.
The only reason you don't love them is because you're using them as your excuse to not feel good."

-Esther Hicks
