Had a lot of fun making these girls for IKYK with watercolor and Faber-Castell brush pen.

It’s only 5 days since I resigned, yet it’s been one of the most hectic weeks in 2015. I’m really excited to welcome all the opportunities and projects in front of me. Everything looks very exciting to me, but I must not say yes to all of them unless I’ll be drowned in deadlines and projects. It’s kinda hard to say no when your hear say yes. The logic rules a lot in this case. I’ve had lack of sleep since Monday, I worked up to 18 hours each day, catching the deadlines, meeting with new clients and trying to cope with my own self. I admit that it’s really hard to manage schedules and to work on drafts while I’m on the go.
Last week I literally thought that I should get a tab for myself. I had a discussion with my friend, Monic about it. She has a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, she showed me the S Note app and I’m so hooked. Since a laptop is too big and a phone is simply too small to work with while I’m on the go, so a tab is the perfect one, right?
All of sudden, the guys from Samsung contacted me and asked whether I’d like to try their Samsung Galaxy Tab A.
Of coursssseeee I said yes!
The tab has been going out with me every day since I received it. I loooove iiiittt. I love that I can make notes, layout drafts and illustrations on the SNote app. The SPen (stylus) makes it feels like I’m working on my Wacom. The pen pressure, the brush/pen selections, colors, the app and the SPen literally have everything I need to put my ideas into paper lively notes. I can attach pictures and put my notes on it. I can simply do anything I want hahahahah I love it. These are my favourite features of the tab.
Another thing is the Multiwindow feature. So when I work (or drive), I listen to music from Youtube, because it has that nice Youtube playlist, am I right or am I right? But Youtube can not be played in the background if I open the app from my mobile phone. So the music is off if I switch to other app, you got my idea here, right? This Multiwindow feature on Samsung Galaxy Tab A is kind of brilliant because I can open 2 apps at the same time. So I can simply listen to songs or watch music videos/vlogs on Youtube while using other app. As seen on the picture below, I’m watching Justin Bieber’s Sorry music video (ughh his songs are so good now!) and drawing at the same time. I love that the tab allows me to multitask.
The last thing is that the tab has 4G LTE connection, so buffering videos is fasterrrr. The faster the better! I love love love my tab. You can find some other creative minds who are using the same tab as mine on Instagram by checking the hashtag #BeginTheAction. Thanks Samsung!

I turned 26 last week and it feels just fine. I’m still denying to think that in 4 years I’ll be 30, I’m just trying to enjoy what’s in my life right now and try to do my best in everything. Ok in this post I’ll be talking about my birthday brunch party.
Since a couple of years ago, I’ve been wanting to have a small birthday party with my closest friends. But the time (and my budget) was always not right. I chose to treat myself something pricey instead of having a birthday party. But this year is different. Twenty six is such a real number to me. It’s already past the quarter and by 26, I gotta be better. That refers to my relationship to the closest ones. So I decided to have a small birthday celebration with my family and friends. My favourite time of the day is brunch, so a brunch party it is.
I’d like to share more about the planning, but I’m just overly excited to share these pretty pictures which mostly taken by my lovely R. I’d like to say thank you to the owners and the staff of Breakfast at Cayenne, who were so kind and helpful. The foods were so so so so delicious. My guests loved the Mie Ayam, Breakfast Burrito, Chicken Quesadillas, and the Pineapple Cake. The table setting is also a lovely note. It was already pretty, like so pretty, with all the beautiful dining ware from Cayenne, I only put some signage and pompom to give a touch of ‘me’ on it.
I’d love to thank Brooklyn Cake for the delicious chocolate marshmallow cake. The cake was so fluffy and wasn’t too sweet, just how I love it (I’m not a sweet tooth). The cake is a perfect combination of sweets. The marshmallow on top blends very well with the sponge cake in your mouth. My guests loved the cake a lot!
Another kind hearted person I’d like to thank is Kitty Manu. She’s the one who landed me all the pom pom, paper flowers (on the table) and the giant paper flowers you see in the pictures above.
Lastly, to Putri Avicenna who helped me a lot in brainstorming, venue checking, menu arranging, etc etc etc you-name-it. Thank youuuu! If I didn’t share my to do list with you, I’d probably got crazy already.
That’s all for now, I’ll write another post to share about the birthday party planning because it was so fun that it had me thinking that I should start a party planner business. Haha! See you in the next post!

Thank you sooooo much, I’m so spoiled!
- Faber-Castell team gave me another set of markers, brush pen and premium watercolour pencils. OMGGGGG never in my life I imagine that I’ll be receiving stuffs from Faber-Castell, my first preference of stationeries and colouring ‘guns’ since I was 8, for twice! Faber-Castell is being very kind to meeee thank you thank you thank youuuu!
- Notebooks from Uchiet. They look so flirty, aren’t they?
- Colouring book (my 3rd colouring book actually) and a set of colouring pencils from my publisher, KPG

And next Sunday is my birthdaaaaayyy so exciteddd because I'll be having a brunch with my closest friends, somewhat like a backyard party. I hope the weather is on my side next week. Finger crossing!
