The week slipped on me.

This weeks a butterfly.
I thought yesterday was Monday. (Yesterday was Wednesday)
And today's Thursday, close to Friday. :)

Well I went for a PUMA sale on Tues. I bought shoes, bags, shirts,and I'm so glad i got this indie-elephant sweater. Size L, but who gives really?

Pretty Les Elephant really is comfortable to wear.

John's friend gave us an annual planner. More like an organizer in chart form where you can erase, slot in, erase again the stuff that you planned for the year throughout. I think its sweet, i can't wait to organize my planning. It's like a bigger picture, rather than just focusing on month by month. I will start that on the 27th Monday.

Will my lovely weekend go to waste?

I'm just wondering, what to do this weekend?
It feels like time has slipped so fast down the calendar and its already SAT n SUN to plan out.

I didn't get enough time to plan properly. I do know Hennessy Artistry @ Bukit Kiara's on the menu. Since i adored my v.s.o.p last year, I know for a fact that i'll live life to the full this Sat.

But how about Sunday? I'm tempted to raid Massimo Dutti again. Perhaps i should just beat it and save till the pay kachings? Yep, kaching.

Honestly, people tell me that i want many things. Who gives, wanting is healthy. Gives you hope to live a certain lifestyle, to live up to standards you set for yourself.

This week, my super WANTS go to the basic minimal:

Brick. Stairs. Frames.

Cute wind chime.

Spacious whites.

A dining hall like this to eat in

ANother dining hall alternative to eat in

Corner filled with kiddy pillows

A place to watch weeds, californication, and Travel n Living :)

Wine bottles for Joe and Mur. Gnarly Head.

Last but not least, a kintamani puppy or any kampung or pedigree pups.

Tonight's plans?

Checking out Cloths and Clef's ONE year anniversary

Anyways, now i'm gonna go light up my death stick and contribute to pollution.

Jakarta in Order

Went back home for the weekend. It was fast paced and there was a wedding. But lets just start off with it treat by treat.



Buddha bar is the ultimate bachelor pad to dress-up for. The whole local Indonesian scene belongs there. The place is filled with exotic beauties, celebs, models. It's just truly pleasurable for expats and locals. Although it is practically a club, you can still manage the relaxation. Really. There's something about the place, it gives really great sexy-sensual-silly vibes. Reminds me of those fancy cigar bars where everyones dolled up in suits and gowns busy blowing their Monte Cristo's as they make heavy conversation.The interior is Asian meets western. You got the hanging chandeliers and a very woody atmosphere gives it that mysterious effect. It's like you're clubbing in a temple (no offense to the religious ones). I know, what seems wrong always feels right. Well not like they took over a temple or anything, more of a colonial building. That makes it super cool. They did receive major complaints from their buddhist neighbors, but oh well the "Buddha" head symbol is infact universal. It sells, it gives off the eclectic effect. Expats dig it, which is why Buddha Bar is doing very well for Jakarta. It's the perfect late-night venture, the crowd's interesting, the place is unique, and the balance is there. Went there two nights in a row and did not regret it, music was good. DJ Ravin was spinning his buddha bar beats and i swear it was marvellous.Grungy-classy is the new way to go peeps. And to you neighbors, i suggest you hop on the buggy and spy your ass off.
They have a buggy service to take you from the carpark to the lobby of Buddha bar. And vice versa. Can u imagine how pampering that is? It is helpful for girls with nine inch nails though.

Crimson red-heads

Different types of Buddha heads, as u can see

Yeah we danced. Just like them dusty times.

Krispycake and I. haha I didn't take pics of our short "thriller" moments.

Check out the resto. Pardon the darkness..they didn't shine the light on Buddha. But yeah thats the fine dining bit, right above the Buddha Bar below. Its magnificent man.

If i loved cigars, i'd puff up here and feel like the King of the world. With my tea of course. Cigarettes just don't slice it.

In the buggy of course. hehe.

Then there's my worn down room that Klaud has conquered. We're planning to hack down the walls so it will appear bigger. Dont know if it will affect the weight or what not.



Don and Putput


on a beautiful SUNDAY. Teddy and Sinda's afternoon reception in their backyard.

The traditional bride



Bride and Groom say hello

By the way, just for adders. I bought a chalk board and i am loving it.
Gonna get one more for the kitchen. write my recipes and shit. :p

And it's a wrap.

the confused line-up

I realized this blog always vents out anger. For a change. I should lessen down on the self-whining and proceed to personal enlightenment. Atleast when i re-scroll, my writing won't be too heavy-bitchy on me.

After a few years of getting to know KL city. Im starting to feel more at home actually. I am after all Malaysian. Ic semua ada. I never really bothered to decorate, paint, or do any major do-ups for my bedroom. But if u check out my room in Jakarta, it is filled with magazine cut ups, Esquire mag covers, favorite brands. Looks like a messy fashion hall of fame. Not to mention my Tim Burton goodies. When nightmare before xmas came out, i went insane, i put it on my xmas list of "i wants" to my friends. Forgot who bought it for me. Its one of my fava gifts. Anyways,that room gives me memories. And now when i go home, my sisters made it hers and stuffed it with her cool new bed. I dont even know where my old bed is. Plus my closets filled with crap too. Lots of old clothes, sheets, bags, and perhaps DUSTmites by now? Recently, I've been trying to make myself feel at home. So i started small. And since im renting a middle-room with the jakartans here in KL, it is quite a fitting size. not too spacious or tight either. Just nice for me. :) They can take the master, god knows what they do in it. Nice balkon juga, ihh. Rabbits!

The little doowops here.

My Buddha Shrine.

Close up of Buddha head and Magnolia bottle. Got the mag-bot from Ampang mall, Sunday = Market day. They have antiques and goodies. Some made-up some authentic.

I call this my 'HANGMAN'. Keeps things organized. easy to find. practical. Space saver too.


An old event update. I'm writing about this cuz the ABSOLUTE VODKA party to me was amazing. I was busy self-servicing myself, didn't wanna leave the twilights and vodka-filled martini glasses. Just wanted to sit around, puff around, and take shots on an empty tum. But I went there with workmates and I didn't really talk much or bother, just wanted to shoot some absolutes solo style. :)

Lights, oh lights.

VODKA line up. Absolutely.

cold, fresh..u name it

The SPOON man, the SPOOOON. awesomeness.
Too bad I didn't steal it. It was worth the rob.

First check out the Esquire mag cover this month.
Brilliant ya think?

Haha, i just realized I don't put many pics up. Cuz im a big time bummer. But today, it will be up. 'RECENT' pics can mean months ago. for peeps like me. hehe. I have a camera, but I barely take shots. I should force myself to...make full use of it too. Nextime tho, here's a line up.

6th Newman Anniversary
Me. Celeste. Elya. The night ended well.

Barsonic Night out a few weeks back. Here's a row of em..haha I'm just so disorganized.

I am part Babboon part Malaysian. :D
