Time for Awards that my blogger friends have given me months ago.It's gonna be a long list,heheee.. :D
1st,Sweet Awards from Green Make Up:
This award requires the following:
- I give credit to person who nominated me. (Done)
- I answer the following super sweet questions:
Cookies or cake?
Cake!not a fan of cookies though cookies baking is my mom specialty.I love cake,especially Black Forest one :)
Chocolate or vanilla?
Deffy chocolate.See explanation below on another award that I answer..
What is my favourite sweet treat?
I like pastries,so pastries is my fave treat.There's this kind of pastry snack from Bandung called,Pisang Bolen.It's basically a pastry cake filled with banana(indonesian word:pisang and chocolate or cheese.I like Pisang Bolen,much :)
Other ones will be traditional Indonesian cakes using glutinous rice or rice powder,such as Klepon,Lupis, Serabi,Carabikang.I'll explain it through picture here:
When do I crave sweet things the most?
Everyday!I'm a sweet tooth person :D
If you had a sweet nickname what would it be?
When I was kid and ate alot,then my cheek was chubbier,my mum called me"bapao". Bapao is a chinese cuisine,a bun(bao/pao).That is not a sweet nickname,but that's the only thing associated with food :D
The last part of this award is that I nominate 13 super sweet bloggers.Here they are(in random order):Vivi,Ningrum,Naomi,Tikka,Kumiko,Dana,Ana,Sarita,Nicole,Caitie,Lutrinae,Peiji,and Audreiana. You can have your cake and eat it too ... :)
From Naomi,the lovely gyaru that I know well.She is all things girly,and bling-bling.Oh,actually we both have the same taste when it comes to style(I like girly,sometimes bling-bling),but she's more girly than I am.So,here is the question:
1.What is your opinion about Gyaru in Indonesia?
I really don't know how to answer this.The only one who explains me well about gyaru is Naomi,and I know another gyaru from Indonesia,Stella Lee.But only naomi who was"patiently"explained to me about different kind of gyaru which I had no idea before.So gyaru in Indonesia,they're rare but increasing in number.That's what I think.
2.Do you have favourite gyaru/gyaruo artist? If yes, mention it.
My fave gyaru..hmm..I watched NHK on gyaru section,and I don't think I like that extreme gyaru style with bleached hair and very lolita look.It's not my thing.To be honest my fave gyaru will be Naomi,not because I consider her as a good blogger friend,but I like her"not that extreme"gyaru style.She only draw the feminine and girly side of gyaru.If you ask me what fashion style that I like,it will be Princess Letizia of Spain fashion style.I really like her fashion style :).Classic,simple,and elegant.
3.Do you like play game? If yes, what are you playing now?
Yes,I like playing game.My fave game are deffy the sims and any of those strategy games.Let me see,..Rise of the Nation!Never get bored of playing it :D
4.Do you have any inspirational people? If yes, who is she/he?
When it comes to inspirational people,most moslems will say:Prophet Muhammad PBUH.But no,I don't want to say him as one of my inspirational people. For me he is in the context of religion(someone holly) which is,not in a proper place to be"just inspirational people" for me.So I'd like to mention those who are still in current days of inspiration.
I like Dalai Lama for his wisdom. Right,I don't worship Budha.For me,Faith is something that you believe who/whatever you're worshiping.But Wisdom can come from anywhere. I also like Hillary Clinton much,she is..smart :) No,I don't care about her academic record.For me smartness isn't about academic record at all.Another person who become my inspiration is my own friend.We've been friends for about 12-13 yrs now.First time I went out for a lunch with her,I didn't finish my lunch because my stomach was full already.She saw that and said"Don't you know how lucky you are to be able to eat now,compared to millions people out there in this world who aren't able to even have a single meal?Please don't leave anything on the plate,there're many people in Somalia are in hunger..".
I was like.."...whattt??but my stomach is full already,I ate snacks before we had lunch,remember?Beside,didn't you say you want to go somewhere after this lunch?". She replied" Well,that can wait.We can wait here untill you're able to finish your lunch..". I was like going crazy for having to stay in a place just to wait for my"empty stomach"so that I can fill it again.But then,she's right so that I didn't deny it.Then,after that everytime I was going to have a lunch with her,I'll make sure to empty my stomach 1st because she really would start it with"There are many hungry people in...."-everytime she saw anything left on the plate.Before she finished it,I then usually replied"Yes I know,in Ethiopia.Before this you've mentioned Somalia,Iraq,and other countries everytime we went out".She said"Oh really?I didn't realize that!:D..".
Well,she was and will always be right about that.We should be grateful for even each grain of rice,wheat,anything that we eat today.It means,we're luckier than millions people out there in this world.Not only that,do you know there are long process that those grains have been through before we consume it?From the hard work that the farmers do,'till it reaches our groceries?There's a good read about it on our forum(here),it's unfortunately in Indonesian.Really makes me thinking about even a single grain of rice.
So,after some times being friends with her,I found out from another friend of mine that she's actually from one of largest business group here in Indonesia. Large,at least that's what Forbes said so.I was kind of surprised since really,she didn't look like those typical so boring snob wealthy girl at all.She,for example,always buy things that she needs,and not what she wants.I'm a very detail person(those who have known me personally will know this),but she is even more detail than me.Whenever she buy clothes,she will check even every inch of the clothe's sew to make sure what she buy is in good condition.To be honest,I don't do it at all.And many stories about her which makes her one of my inspirational people.She isn't a kind of person who will ashamedly blabbing about her self and said"I'm wealthy..".She,really sets a good example of nobility.
I mean,like if you are born with hair,why would you brag to anyone telling that you have hair?.If you're born with no hair,so when one day you're hairy,no wonder you want to tell everyone on the street that you do have hair now.That's what I think.
5.What do you do in your spare time?
Deffy,blogging(I didn't mean posting on my blog,fyi :p).Watching movies also.I like movies :)
6.What is your favourite food?
Japanese foods for its light taste.I also like Italian(pasta..I love pasta!!).What I don't really fancy will be those that are spicy and hot,like Korean,Indian,and some of Indonesian foods. Especially about Korean foods,I think the Koreans are good at marketing their cultures.First time tasted kimchi, me and my friend didn't understand why some people here were raving about Kimchi as in our opinion asinan jakarta or asinan bogor tasted better than kimchi. Perhaps just like what my friend said"Super Junior even can make girls eating papers if they want to...." ~
7.Japan / Korea Song, which dou you prefer?
Actually,they both are good.But I prefer Japanese melody.Koreans are just too mellow(and this one even the Koreans admit it). Many koreans melody sound wailing imo.
8.What is your dream in the future?
Umm..becoming a billionaire,dating a superstar :D Lol...Ok,Amiinn..
11 things(more)about me:
1.I use kids toothbrush instead of adult one.Because the head of the toothbrush is small,so that it can reach even tiniest space.According to my dentist,I should use toothbrush with small head and long handle.She even suggested the kids toothbrush one.And yes,I did hate adult toothrbush,especially since the head is big.Dunno,but just don't fit my teeth.If you have small mouth and using big toothbrush,don't you think that will make your mouth..err..bigger and wider?:D
2.Currently crazy in love with...delfi nockers caramel nougat with nut chocolate bar(what a mouthful!)!! Seriously,I really like this candy!I used to hate caramel(believe me,I've tried many),it sticks to my teeth,and haven't found the right sweet taste of caramel untill I met this bar.It doesn't stick,and the caramel isn't too sweet either.Oh,this is super!The sweetness remind me of hershey chocolate drop,but it's a bit less sweet.Love it!Hope they don't change the recipe into sweeter..
3.True that I'm crazy about chocolate(posted about it many times).However,there's one day when I'm drunk of chocolate,literally.I bought a chocolate wafer,ate it at a cafe with my besties.And,at the cafe I ordered chocolate donut,and hot chocolate drinks.Dunno why,10 minutes after that I got dizzy,nausea,and ended up
vomited.After that,I didn't eat any chocolate for about a month or so.Keep remind my self to not overload with the same flavour taste,not only it's boring,it'll reach your limit of satisfaction.
4.One of things that are synthetic on my vanity table will be this:perfume!I'm not a perfumey person,since I easily sneeze when I smell too overpowering perfume smells.But I still have those synthetic fragrances.I mean,it's not on my skin application so I kinda"waive"it.Also,producers won't disclose what's in their fragrance concoction and hide it under trade secret.Read my post about it(here). That wasn't my concern,but after read NMDL about an article in saying that personal products contaminating chicago's air,this is something to be concerned about.Personally,I don't use parfume everyday.As I said,I have sensitive nose.Now,after using all naturals cosmetics,it's even more sensitive.Natural cosmetics don't have synthetic fragrance in it,so that whenever I smell synthetic fragrance,it feels too stink on my nose.I should consider to ditch my perfume into non synthetic ones.However,it will be difficult since I like musk scent also,and I'm against natural musk scent since it needs to sacrifice deers to get it.For me,animal sacrification is a NO NO...
5.Have read my no soap bath post?I still do it untill today.So,it's been 6 months I don't do soap bathing,and my skin is just fine!Even smoother..
6.Recently,I literally simplify things in my life,and my vanity table is one of them.I rethinking which product that I really need,and which product that I don't really need.Like,I don't need to have many lipsticks or many lip products because I always end up not finishing it untill it become expired!!I only have 1 pair of lips,why in this earth I should have 6 lipsticks?? And more,my lips are considered small so to finish 1 lip product really takes long time,more than a year.And with this non petrochemical products that I choose,the life span of any cosmetic products on my vanity table is even less!So in this case,having many lipsticks will be just a money wasting,adding more trash to this earth,deffy not a wise option..However,it really really absolutely gets me wonder...what those people do with their lipsticks collection?I saw on some blogs,vlogs that some women have so many lipsticks so that they can even open a cosmetic counter with it.How do they finish it??? Like this one I found on makeuptalk.com:
seriously,how to finish those in a year??
without literally eating those lipsticks all,it's almost impossible to finish all those lipsticks in a year..
7.As I've ever written before,I like some mysterious topics such as:Bermuda triangle,Atlantis,and stuffs. However,conspiration theory never got me interested though one of my besties is a biggest fan of it! She bought books about illuminati,she even following those people on twitter who claims as mossad agents,a wikileak person,etc etc.And,she'll end up calling me to"gossip"about any conspiration theory that she's just got. Then I'll be like"Oh,really?"whenever she enthusiastically tell me about it.Seriously,I'm not the Alias person at all!.Sure there are many conspiracies in this world,but I don't want to pay attention to it.Not interesting.However,yesterday I found this web accidentally about ear biometrics,and this web made me jaw dropping. Click(here)if you're interested into.Tell me what you think about it! Before that,I give you a sneak a peak about the web.For example this,that the person believe the moon landing was a hoax based on ear biometrics:
There are many articles there that really makes you think twice about historical fact.Because they analized it based on ear biometrics.You will be surprised to see the article,just like I was.Now,is ear biometrics accurate?Well,at least that's what the scientists said so..
8.I do bathroom singing concerts sometimes,hehee...:D
9.I dunno why,but I don't like orange colour.Just too bright to my liking.
10.My fave parfume scents is floral(and the musk also).
11.I love reading!No specific topic,from Mein Kampf 'till Lolita(ugh,this one is really the most psychotic book I've ever read!Yuck!).Still,if I can mention what book that I dislike the most,it will be those -what is that-self motivator book?I dunno the name,basically books with these kind of title"Don't worry,Be happy!","Life is beautiful","How to boost self confidence",etc etc.It will give me a Zzzzz to read those kinda books. Still,I have 1 of those books"Law of Attraction".Bought it after saw it on Oprah.Yeah..thanks God the book isn't thick and small. That's all I can say about the book..
Questions from Ningrum:
1.Kalau kamu bisa ngobrol sama binatang, mau bicara sama hewan apa?(If you have the ability to talk to animals,what animal that you want to talk to?)
All animals,why it has to be one if we can talk to animals?:D But if I have to pick one,it will be this:ants!I run out of idea how to keep them away from my house.I've been giving them food so that they stay away from my house,but other group of ants keep coming.So,I think it'll be great if I can talk to ants boss and negotiate it 1st so that we have the solution.
2.Warna kesukaanmu apa? Kasih filosofi di balik kesukaanmu itu ya.(what is your fave colour?give the philosophy behind your reason of your fave colour).
I like pink,and tosca.And general pastel colors.Pink is a sweet color,and tosca/mint..it's a unique color.Not blue,neither green.I like tosca..
3.Seandainya Bumi ngajak kamu berbincang dari hati ke hati, kalian mendiskusikan apa, sih?(If the Earth want to have a conversation with you,what would you both are talking about?)
I will say sorry for making her dirty,participating indirectly in the process of exploiting her resources,and asking her what is the best solution for both of us..Because certainly,I need to exploit it.But certainly also,winning my exploitation only would never be a best option. In the end,I'll loose even more if I force it to happen.
4.Menurut kalian, seberapa penting keberadaan kosmetik dalam kehidupan perempuan?(What do you think about the importance of cosmetic in women's life?)
Deffy important.In fact,I personally depend on it.Please note,cosmetic doesn't mean make up!Cosmetic is general,it includes make up,skin care,hair care,etc. So even if you don't do daily make up,or even if you're a man,a kid,you'll need cosmetic.In this case,none can leave toiletries as part of hygiene routine.
5.Tahu band bernama Keane? Suka? Atau sama sekali nggak kebayang itu apaan?(Do you Keane?or never imagined what the heck is that?)
I know Keane from the one who gave me this award since she is a violist and heavily crazy about classical music!I love classical music,so I'm glad that I know her though I dunno much about Keanne(a classical boyband :p).At least,I have more vocab about classical music now :)
6. Aliran musik kesukaan kalian apa?(what is your fave music?)
Pop,classical,and sometimes rock.I think some rock music can be combined beautifully with classical music.
7.Pernah berpikir menjadi penemu barang unik yang berguna bagi kehidupan? Ayo diceritakan idenya!(Ever thought about being an inventor of unique stuffs that are useful for living?Tell us the idea!)
-Any tools that can create cheap fuel and electricity for people to use and also eco friendly.
-A GPS for cat that is planted/not planted,and using cat's body temperature as the source of GPS energy.So that I can easily find my cat,whether she's on the bush,inside the cupboard,or where?
-Sticker remote control so that I can just stick it wherever I want(the receiver),and just use the remote control(the transmitter) whenever I want to search it.
8.Kira-kira, masalah limbah di dunia ini harusnya diatasi dengan cara apa?(World's waste problem,how do you think to solve it?
Simple to say but hard to do:Reduce,Reuse,and Recycle.As for beauty bloggers,can we all reduce our cosmetics products?The answer is all yours..
Woah,finally finished!!.What a long list.Thanks For reading,and..have a nice weekend!!:)
