What is the best motivation to do diet or control your food?
I will say 'Love', 'Anger' and 'Jealousy'.

At least for me it's proven! So how about when you don't have that someone special at the moment or when you are in your peace with no jealousy and not mad to anyone?
Well, this is what I am doing now.

I've been eating a lot lately. And I will have my holiday very soon next month. Ohhh, not to mention, my friend from Indonesia will come in 10 days and of course he will do culinary. Ohhh, I am also going on road trip this weekend so will be eating together with friends for sure. Ahh! Almost forgot, company Christmas dinner which will be on next Monday. Oh man!

Last Sunday, I went to this Indonesian grocery and saw this Indo snack was on sale.
To buy or not to buy?

If I have that motivation I mentioned before, of course I am not buying.
But, I tell you what? Seems like those love or jealousy feeling has not come to me again... yet.

Here I am enjoying my evening tea with Astor!
I swear to God, this snack is the besttttt!!!!

Okay, one more thing has done.
Ticket is booked for December.
Hello Jakarta! Hello heavy traffic jam! Hello freaking hot weather!
But hello friends!


If only Jakarta is always like this

Damn, I need a new job!

I am literally staying up at home the whole day.
Bored? of course!
But could not help, rather than going out without direction.

Anyway, as I am so hopelessly do nothing at home, I am just playing Instagram.
After so long I never touch this, I am updating it now.

Here are some what I did:
MBS' Infinity Pool - Singapore
Rainbow - Mi Apartment
Cairns - Great Barrier Reef
Phi phi Island - Phuket
Eiffel Tower - Paris
My Cousin and I
Pisa Tower - Italy
Huxtaburger - Melbourne 
Sushi Burger - Melbourne
Just another beautiful touching short movie from WongFu Production.

Enjoy :)

Oh WOW! He is so talented. Awesomeness!

Thought I am gonna share this with you all

It's an article explaining why the wedding ring is on your fourth finger.
Well, of course it is based on theory or what you can call belief.

The article contains 2 parts, one is from Chinese belief and the other one is from Roman belief.
But both make sense to me so I kinda accept and agree with it.

Anyway, happy reading!

Hmmm... I become curious of this brand.

I am using its Oxygen mask for face at the moment and it's not bad.
Then I surf the Internet and found a lot of good review for this brand.
Then.... I just realised that I bought a nail polish from Lioele as well when I was in Singapore and I have just used it.

Guess what? I love it.
Love the colour, love the texture, love the brush.
Most importantly, the price is affordable not like OPI which way too expensive in normal retail shop.

Apparently it's Korean brand (no wonder) as you can see Korean girls? hmmm... pretty pretty.

So here it is, example of the nail polish.
It should be a matte polish but I don't really like matte so I decided to just put normal top coat on the top :) 
Results are way way better.

It's series M90, sorry the name is in Korean.

Love will eliminate the imbalances and different degrees of feelings seen during like.
It's unconditional or bust.
You can't kind of love a person and they can't sort of love you.
You just love each other wholeheartedly, which so much easier.
Everything can be removed from the bag of blemishes, all the gas can be passed and nothing changes.
Now that's a true of beauty.
It may not smell too good, but it's certainly a beautiful thing to see.

This week has been hectic for me.
Try to settle some personal needs but I guess it's not as easy as I imagine.
Finger cross everything will go well after this.

At the moment, I just try to believe that 'Nothing worth having ever comes easy'.

I've been in the mood cooking savory food lately.
Time for chicken, I cooked Chicken Piccata last night.

Recipe adapted from here.


 1 chicken breast
100 gr flour
1.5 tablespoons vegetable oil
 1 spring onion, white part only, minced
 1 tablespoon lemon juice
 125 ml chicken stock
 1/2 teaspoon honey
 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
 1 tablespoon parsley, minced
 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest, finely zested


  1. Use a sharp knife to slice the chicken breast in half. You should end up with two thin fillets that are mirror images of each other. If you don't have a sharp knife or aren't too confident with your knife skills, you can also put the breast in a large Ziploc bag and pound with a mallet until it's about 1/2" thick.

  2. Put the flour in a shallow bowl. Generously salt and pepper the chicken then, then dredge it in the flour to give it a light coating. Hold the chicken in the air and tap it a few times with your other hand to dust off excess flour. 

  3. Add the oil to a frying pan and heat over medium heat until the oil shimmers and is hot, but not smoking. Place two pieces of the chicken in the pan and fry undisturbed until you start seeing the edges start turning a tan color (about 2 minutes). Flip the chicken over then brown the other side. Transfer the cooked chicken to a plate, then fry the other two cutlets. 

  4. To make the sauce, drain out all but a tablespoon of oil, then add the minced scallions. Fry until soft and fragrant. Add the chicken stock, then let this boil down until there is almost no liquid left. Add the lemon juice and honey, then stir in the butter. Turn off the heat, then add the parsley and lemon zest. Pour the sauce of the chicken then serve immediately.


1 1/2 cup water
3 eggs
100 gr minced pork
1 tsp sesame oil
salt and pepper
chopped spring onion to garnish


  1. In a fry pan, cook minced pork, seasoned with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Stir 3 eggs thoroughly and add sesame oil, salt, pepper and water.
  3. Put the cooked pork inside the egg.
  4. Steam for about 10 minutes. Turn off the heat after 10 minutes, let it sit in a steamer for another 6 - 7 minutes.
  5. Put some spring onion on the top. Serve.

Old song is always better.
Just go through my old iPod and listened to this song.
I remember how I loved this song so much and I still do now.

The Rose - Westlife

Some say love it is a river 
that drowns the tender reed 
Some say love it is a razor 
that leaves your soul to bleed 

Some say love it is a hunger 
an endless aching need 
I say love it is a flower 
and you its only seed 

It's the heart afraid of breaking 
that never learns to dance 
It's the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance 
It's the one who won't be taken 
who cannot seem to give 
and the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live 

When the night has been too lonely 
and the road has been too long 
and you think that love is only 
for the lucky and the strong 
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows 
lies the seed 
that with the sun's love 
in the spring 
becomes the rose


vegetable oil
220 gr spaghetti
2 tbs unsalted butter
1 1/2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs minced garlic
270 gr prawn

  7. Toss to combine
  8. When the pasta is done, drain the cooked pasta and then put it back in the pot. Immediately add the shrimp and sauce, toss well and serve.
