A casual dinner at Porto Bistreau.

It's always a pleasure of mine to share some incredible moments I've been through, and I'm back writing stories again. Perhaps several of my readers who has already follow me on instagram and zomato know more about my daily during my off-period of blogging. Well, let me tell you a thing, I found a very affordable yet fancy dinner place, here in Jakarta. Seriously. When I was in Serpong area for some business in a cloudy Sunday, looking for a place to have dinner, and as usual I do Zomato-ing. Then I found a restaurant, quite fancy with medium price of foods. I shocked at first, and with just 50-50 feeling, finally I decided to visit this fancy restaurant.

Porto Bistreau, located in Gading Serpong, around 1,5 hours driving from South Jakarta. The restaurant is build in a three-floor shop house, with a backyard which opened as the smoking area. The first two floors are open as the dining area. They completely put a lot of attention in the interior, which I love so much. Woods, black chairs, marble table, and all classic contemporary design. Even their toilet is something to be fascinated. About the foods, I could die everyday craving for its! Taste so delicious with a beautiful plating (I still not consider about the price, really it's so delicious).

Australian Hamburg Melting Cheese. Grilled Australian beef patty, stuffed with melting cheddar, topped with special Porto sauce, sunny-side up egg, served with vegetables and homemade potato wedges. The portion is quite big, so I assume you'll feel completely full after a day starving for foods.

Hanging tender.  Well, they offers this menu in small portion as for appetizer (50 gram) and bigger one (100 gram) complete with potato wedges as for main course. I ordered this small size hanging tender because I've already eaten some snacks and dessert at different place earlier. The sliced Australian hanging tended is grilled with imported kosher sea salt and black pepper. The taste is very simple but hard to forget.

I didn't plan for having a kind of fancy dinner with pretty gown, so I came with a very casual attire. Because today it's a trend for two-pieces-top, like a combination of an outer tank with a long sleeve top or a corset with a black shirt, I found one that suits me from a collection of local online shop. The set is coming with a creme long sleeve to be wear as inner, and an outer crop tank with attached sash that can be tied what ever you wants. I chose my light blue gray ripped jeans as the bottom and paired it with a ballerina flat shoes to bring a casual look. And I can run faster without a high heels on.

How the love begins.

Been living in this city that never sleep for almost a year, and what is actually happen in my days from the morning sunlight to a very windy yet heavy rain with thunderbolt and the city lights in the nights from those skyscrapers are fill in the slots in my memory. And I think I starts to fall more deep with this city, Jakarta.

Wake up in the morning and get ready for working, then I buy my breakfast in street-side kiosk on my way to office, honestly I have to admit that I love the foods. Jakarta's traditional foods is one of the best foods that I've ever tasted. The legendary Ketoprak, Nasi Uduk and of course Gado-gado! The taste are magical like it deceive my tongue in every bite.

Jakarta's traffics in weekdays is always a problem, to anyone. But what happens in weekend? I'm pretty sure that it is fascinating yet fun to drive across the major arterial road while play Lana Del Rey songs in night. And when I see the yellow-red sign, drop by and pick up the guilty-pleasure food then continue the trip. Actually you don't need to dress like you are going to have a kind of fancy dinner or attending a red carpet events, you just need to dress yourself with clothes which you really want to wear.

In the downtown, at the highest point where all you can see are the combination of lights from skyscrapers, houses, and cars that sparkling in the windy night. And some music beats that make you cannot deny that this city is really stay awake 24/7. Another thing that fascinating is there are so many great places to have dinner. Some maybe don't have foods with good taste, but the others have even the magical one.

After the long day discoved something marvelous from this capital city, I stayed under my blanket and read the words that is combined into beautiful sentences, a simple yet fancy kind of bed time stories.

In spite of black is my favorite color, I'm totally adore any combinations in black. Even this is one of the strongest yet bold basic colors on earth, it never failed to bring the sexiest touch into a very simple look. Like arrange some basic items together or just put different fabric items in one color,  which is black, in one extraordinary look is a kind of efficiency and effective efforts you can do when you are in hurry or in the middle of confusing. Sometimes your body is to tired and your brain just need more power to process the idea, desire, and what eyes see. Like me every morning. I look up to my closet, try to scan anything inside and think what shall I wear. At the moment I give up, I choose black. And it is never fail to support me in having an elegant yet simple look.

And my current obsession just now is no other than black. Like wear anything black top to toe or even with a little touch with other colors. And let me tell you a tricks when you totally trap in situations that made you hard to dress yourself, black attire and red lips. That's the magic words. Do it and enchanted the world. Well actually, I never do a kind of dressing my hair, and put any eye make up like eye shadows and eye liner, but that magic combination really magical. 

Here two looks I pick to share, first one is from an afternoon tea time and the second is my look to office.

Top: Bershka | Pants: Stradivarius | Bag: Guess | Shoes: Zara

In this look, I combine three different items in black which fabrics are completely different. From a long-sleeves polyamide top, viscose stretch pants and a quilted leather sling bag. Since I'm dying in love with lace-up shoes,  I chose to wear my pointy shoes in cobalt blue. 

Dress: Shopatvelvet | Necklace: Zara | Sheer tights: H&M | Shoes: Zara 

In this second look, I wear black from top to toe, except my pearl necklace which made of white beads. This is very simple yet formal look.

That's some inspiration from my daily look. Hopefully it can helps you in your emergency situation of choosing the right outfit.

Make peace with your heart.

As time goes by, day changes into night, holiday has already over, and January turn to December as quick as not realizable. Maybe and it suppose that there are always many problems come and go or even just stay. At some point you could handle everything in a very good way but the rest are too complicated to handle. You suffer from pain, struggle for better atmosphere and try to breath as your mind free to imagine anything. Dreams are something which is the only way to set yourself free. And remember that it is always a boarder line between the magnificent dreams and the reality that similar to nightmare.

Freedom. A word that means so much in different perception to people. It is a hope from the one waiting to live in peace. And a hope from whoever whose mind dying of happiness.

There are no difficult problem that people couldn't handle. Maybe the problem is in inside your heart. You block the connection between your heart and mind to work together in balancing your life. There is always a reason behind something come into you, maybe not today but in days forward. Then make peace with your heart.

Celebrity Wedding Ideas.

Recently I realized that I've been put a lot of interest in wedding. I love it composition of great vendors, selected colors, and the theme chosen. And about how to combine also organize them into a great package that hardly forgotten. Seeing the love birds and their stories behind is always touching me, melt my heart and makes me deeply fall to this industry. After graduated, once I thought to join one of great photography vendors that mostly people always amazed by their works. Perhaps someday I have a chance to organize a wedding for my beloved friends and make their wedding dreams come into reality and be the things that always remembered.

As we knew that last few years, many medias proclaim about celebrity fancy wedding parties, from one with many traditional ceremonies to other with a real-life 'Cinderella' wedding party. And now I pick two of my favorite celebrities wedding concept which raising the unique concept but it's so memorable.

1. Ringgo Agus Rahman and Sabai  Morscheck

I am totally in love with their wedding. Clean colors, beach side venue, and intimate party. Always be my dreams to celebrate my own wedding with only close people, wear a simple gown, choose pastel colors, and have beach side ceremony. This concept is quite simple but very memorable.

2. Junior Liem and Putri Titian.

Putri Titian and Junior Liem is one of my favorite celebrity couple, a role model of relationship that I adore. They living their relationship life just like the way they are, and how they enjoy each moment without need to hide their self-identity in front of each other. And their concept of wedding is different from many celebrities. One that I like so much is a purple clown on a wedding as I dream.

Style to my office.

It's been very long time not sharing something- fashion, culinary, even traveling. Earlier this year, I was pretty busy in choosing any jobs offer that suitable on me. Well basically as you know that I'm graduated as an engineer but even I don't have any matter with all of it complex calculation and designing, I just didn't think that the working days would supported me to inspire people through the way I dressed up. And then I ended up choosing a Management Development Program at one of private banking owned by one of Indonesia's conglomerate. Months back I stayed in Megamendung, Puncak in West Java at their training center, learned about whole system in banking industry. It was really like I'm back to uni again. So just now I stay in Jakarta, working at their headquarters office. The building was awesome, standing right next to one of Indonesia's big TV station in same area-both are under same group. And there are a small library with breathtaking view to Gatot Subroto street which then become my favorite spot.

So here, I share some my looks about what I wear to office daily. In first look I was wearing a 3/4 sleeves Batik dress with A-line cutting. The dress itself was bought by my parents. The pattern and the color just so simply yet elegant, paired it with my kitten heeled shoes from Zara. Well, I'm wearing any Batik clothes twice a week, and at first it was literally made me get confused since I was not dressed up in Batik oftentimes. But as time goes by, everything just so fun, like every morning I play mix & match of clothes.

In the second look, I also wearing a dress with a drapery at waist and the cutting is slimfit. To give a deep formal look, I also wore stockings in black. And for last touch, I chose my lace up high heeled shoes in cobalt blue. Since I always in love with pointy shoes, and those lace just bring another classy yet edgy look, and I feel it brings a sexy touch to my legs. And all are from my favorite RTW brand, ZARA.
