My Kind of Escapee


I am an introvert, I love to be alone and happy being lonely. I love black than any other colors, I listen to sad and gloomy music, I paint sad and creepy girl and it is part of me that can never changes. until today I just realized that positive vibe could possibly come from things and people around you and take a little part in your life to change in a positive way. I just can't believe it.

since I work in this cheerful and colorful office, with its happy people and my one and only boss who seems never let her happiness meter getting low and her magically unlimited smile and weirdness. all I can say that I'm 'affected' by kind of happy virus that spreading in the office.

I'm not change. it's just my mind that now open much wider right now and so I can accept more things in life that I never have before... apparently, it feels great! alhamdulillah...

Love,

Eyes Scream for an Ice Cream


trying so hard to look for my signature sketching style turn out to realize that it cannot be spontaneously happen unless you practice like thousand times. in fact, my sketches are less than a hundred so yeah I know I must practice more.

anyway, I feel like to change my blog layout completely. yes, completely! and I wish it's for the last and foreveeer. I won't change my blog layout anymore. I've been searching for the right design to represent myself but I didn't find any. do you mind to give me a reference of simple and artsy blog layout? thank you! :)

Haris & Kenny Wedding

nothing can be happier than seeing your best friend as a beautiful bride in a day. congrats Kenny!
Kenny is one of my closest friend since junior high school. she's quiet, funny, and smart kinda girl. she never had a boyfriend from the very first time I know her until last year she found the man who is now become her husband. lucky you! can't wait to see the little Kenny :")
for the wedding, Kenny gave me brown colored fabric which turns purplish when it exposed to the lights. sorry, I don't know the name of the fabric. by the way this my first outfit photos *cough* on my blog. let's start from shoes...


yes, my favorite shoes form UP! :) seriuosly, I'm a sneakers type of girl. I'm not very often going anywhere with wedges or heels because it hurts when I walk too fast or run a little (I'm a pedestrian and a bus chaser). UP is an exception. this comfortable, affordable and chic shoes fit my wide feet very well. and oh it's so light! bye bye fatigue ankle. and for the outfit I wear a dark grey satin pashmina combines with black blazer.
honestly, the black blazer was a plan B outfit haha because I don't like my top. I brought my fabric to a tailor and I told the woman every single details but unfortunately the fabric is not enough to cover up the designed pattern. because cut the length of my long skirt is impossible so she cut my long sleeves top half shorter than the actual design and the result is very weird.
I love pencil skirt with pleats in the back. for the wedding, I don't want it to look too plain so I told the tailor to make a ribbon right on the pleats peak.

shoes and outfit were done so let's check out my make up. I must say thanks to Njonja Kebaja for their very good service and their make up artist's magic hands. I think she does something magic to my face because I feel completely different...
I can say that I almost never have make up in daily basis especially to my eyes and face. like I told you, I have an uncontrolled oily skin, big pores and pimples beside I actually didn't like to have a make up that can change the natural look of my face. so I'm always trying to avoid those eyes and face make up. lip tint and eyebrows definer are enough for me. that's why whenever I see a mirror after put on a make up I always feels a surprise like, 'who are you?'. I feel completely different.
overall, I love my make up that day. I took thousand selfies because one is never enough! :P
anyway, how do I look?

Thought from a Book

Weird April

so I heard you love something weird...



last night Tuesday, April 7, 2015 I walked home at night from the office and decided to check calendar on my mom's phone (I brought it with me because my own phone just broke about three days ago). for me checking calendar is same important like checking emails and social networking like all people usually do but the calendar went weird last night. all I remember that yesterday was Tuesday but the calendar says that it was Monday, 7 April. no way, it can't be Monday! because Monday is Yoga class at the office and it happened day before yesterday.

I was shocked. what the hell has happened with this old Nokia?! so I checked my digital watch, it says Tuesday, 7 April. I checked my iPod and it's same with my watch. so, what's wrong with this phone?!

I was like closing and opening calendar app many times .....and snap!

Good Friday


I'm coloring my sketch with watercolor and a little help of photoshop because when I took a photo of it with my camera I felt the original color didn't come out so I gave a little touch to adjust color saturation. she's Charlie Engman I saw her for the first time on BeyondTheMag's Instagram. I think pretty models on magazine or such media are really good for beginner illustrator while the experts can illustrate what's on their mind. I'm still looking for my signature sketch and coloring technique.

happy easter & happy good Friday dear friends!
