Color Block in November 2011

I'm sorry I've been neglecting this blog for a couple of weeks. I've been dealing with some sort of problems, like going back to my hometown (last minute shopping and packing...not really, but sort of), and the very sad moment of the year, my family and I lost my grandpa 2 days after I arrived. But I know he's in a better place now...

And not bringing my laptop back is not helping at all (I'm just too lazy to carry around heavy stuff in the airport) so I need to borrow my younger brother's laptop if he's not using it, which is like 0.0000000000000000001% chance happening. He's always in front of his laptop. I don't know that online game is still trending jsdbywugehfbkfnsikhcu (that was me being irritated).

However, now that I'm back on my saddle (even though I don't have any horse), I'll present to you (drum rolls) the color block in November 2011! --> This outfit post was taken in November. 2011 that is.

cotton ink black polaris as top, monica and penelope cruz for mango cardigan, zara trf skirt, new look tights and flats, issey miyake bag

This is the Issey Miyake Bao Bao Bag I was talking about kjsbdxusgebfnejfbsdv I'm still totally eternally crazy in love about it. How could you fall in love, and do it all over again, with the same thing?

Nevertheless, I'm enjoying my holiday right now. I never thought I could miss Surabaya THAT much. The decision to go home was very sudden. I didn't plan to, but then I changed my mind. I miss my family, friends, and the food. Three Fs that keep you alive.

I've made a list on what food I'd like to eat here (Bon Ami, Bu Kris, nasi goreng jawa, La Rucola, etc etc etc).
I've made a list on what things I'd like to buy (loads and loads of instant cooking materials, sauces, fabrics and threads, etc etc etc).
I've made a list on what things I'd like to do (relaxing and doesn't have to deal with home chores i.e. cleaning up my own room and cook!, beautify myself in the salon, massage (heaven!), etc etc etc).
And finally, to spend time with my family during Christmas and New Year's Eve, the most wonderful times of year! And of course, New Year, but you know, it's not the same year... if you get what I mean.

So, what are your plans for the holiday? And what are YOU planning to wear on Christmas and New Year, the most wonderful times of the year (see? I'm repeating it)???

Color Block in 2010

As what the title said, these outfit photos were taken in September 2010. Yep, and smarty-pants me, just uploaded it now, when the color block trend is ovah. Or not... Just wait till Spring 2012 and you'll get more colors again. It's just the cycle, you know. Spring/Summer is more cheerful, colorful and Autumn/Winter is more subtle, cooler (duh?), but I like both color tones. But this time...

Be Proud

I'm gonna start this post by saying none of the content I will talk about is purposed to offend you because this is just my thought. It may sounds sarcastic (cause maybe there's some sarcasm in it) but really, it's just my thought. You may disagree.

I've been hearing girls want to be skinnier. In fact, loads of time. More than loads. I know what it's like not to be skinny, because I'm not. But the problem is, the girls who say they want to be skinny, or thinner, or "#decemberwish successful diet" or "#foreverwish become thinner" are already normal in the BMI stage (sorry for talking biologically). I don't even know how to respond to this (I don't have to), but it's like a flame that's boiling me inside. I mean, those girls are 45kg and want to be "skinnier"? If they're calling themselves "fat", then how about people above 50kg? Obese? No. It's all wrong in all kinds of way.

I, personally, would like myself to be more ideal in weight. But, my BMI is normal, so I don't sweat too much. I still eat what I want whenever I want it. I don't hold myself back just to impress someone I don't know. I eat unhealthy food sometimes and I don't eat salad for my breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I eat meat. I exercise.... sorta. I skipped meals once in a while (very rarely) and not because I want to starve myself to death to reach a 50kg, but because sometimes I need those time to work on my homework or projects (I know it's not good so I try to change this habit because I don't want my parents worrying about whether I have eaten lunch or dinner already). And sometimes I joke I want to divide my excess body weight to skinny people who needs it, but almost all the time, I'm proud to be who I am. Even though I don't have that Victoria's Secret model's bod. But I have something better to offer to other people other than the way I look.

I appreciate celebrities like the Kardashians sisters or Demi Lovato who's proud to be themselves and go to the gym regularly just to stay healthy, not to burn their whole calories. They are the true role models. Who says if they're skinnier they would be more beautiful? You think Kim Kardashian will look that hot if she's 38kg?

I'm glad now the media is starting to show more curvy people on ads or tv shows and not skulls or bones only. People need to get more real. You see those models on the cover of magazines? Photoshop. You think they don't have cellulite? They do (I don't know hahaha, but probably most of them do).

So why do you need to be skinny? To get sick easily? To make other people impressed when most of the time they will think about themselves rather than put the attention on you? Maybe some of you readers right now would think, "she's just posting this because she's insecure". Well, guess what? I am. But I don't let my insecurities get the best of me. I'd rather embrace the good parts of me than focus on the bad ones. Why don't you do that too? Or spread the words to other girls that you know who's already thin enough but wants to be thinner and this sentence is mixed up and grammatically error.


P.S. Be proud of who you are, even though you don't feel you're the most perfect person alive. I mean, let's face it, who's perfect? What you feel inside about yourselves, transfer to the outside. If you, yourself don't feel that you're beautiful, then when people look at you, they would see nothing. But if you have confidence, they will respect you, or even adore you.

P.P.S. Lame joke; Nobody's perfect. I'm nobody. Therefore I'm perfect.
