Run Run Run

Just reading an inspirational story of the world oldest marathon runner, Mr Fauja Singh.


He has been quoted as saying, "I am very careful about different foods. My diet is simple phulkadal, green vegetables, yogurt and milk. I do not touch parathaspakoras, rice or any other fried food. I take lots of water and tea with ginger. ... I go to bed early taking the name of my Rabba (God) as I don’t want all those negative thoughts crossing my mind."

Speaking about the marathon, he said: "The first 20 miles are not difficult. As for last six miles, I run while talking to God."


I don't know but he inspires me to keep myself healthy, always be busy with positive thoughts and keep running, moving on in life instead of being drowned in sorrow.

Have a long live baba ji!

The Lunch Box

I just bought a small lunch box last week...

The reason why I decided to buy: it comes with spoon, fork, and chopsticks, it's made of good plastic, and... it was on SALE, obviously...



But guys.. what I actually want is a lunch box exactly like this...


The reason why: becoz the inside material is made of steel so it can keep your meals warm, and... I love the color!

Yellow yellow, dirty fellow... I love YELLOW!

Just let me informed guys if you know where to get that kind of lunch box.
Thanks :)

How To: Make Your Own Eye Make Up Remover

Hi guys!

Kali ini aku mau share cara membuat sendiri make up remover yang cocok buat membersihkan make up di wajah khususnya di daerah mata. Tau kan kalo make up di bagian mata itu biasanya paling ribet dan susah buat dihapus karena areanya kecil, sensitif tapi penuh dengan aneka rupa eye shadow dan eye liner.

Menghapus make up dengan make up remover yang sudah tersedia memang lebih praktis, tapi berhubung aku jarang banget pake make up berat jadi berasa sayang aja kalo beli. Ditambah lagi make up remover suka berbau menyengat dan bikin kulit jadi kering so... why not making it myself? And here is my version of DIY Eye Make Up Remover...


Prinspnya, bahan yang diperlukan adalah kombinasi antara cairan dan minyak. Cairan di sini fungsinya adalah untuk menyegarkan kulit sementara minyak bertugas untuk melarutkan make up di wajah.

Untuk cairan aku pake toner yang ringan dan segar (jangan pake toner yang strong, karena bisa bikin perih dan iritasi) dan  untuk minyak bisa didapat dari petroleum jelly atau baby oil (bisa juga pake extra virgin olive oil atau minyak zaitun murni).


contoh hasilnya: menghapus waterproof eyeliner

Begini cara pakainya...
  • Aplikasikan toner secukupnya pada kapas 
  • Kemudian tambahkan satu tetes baby oil (satu tetes baby oil cukup untuk membersihkan satu bagian mata)
  • Tutup matamu (ini penting nih, matanya jangan sampe melek), taruh kapas tersebut pada mata, diamkan selama 3-5 detik
  • Sapukan kapas ke arah luar mata dan bersihkan sisa make up dengan usapan ringan
  • Setelah make up terangkat, basuh wajah dengan face wash, bilas dengan bersih, keringkan, dan aplikasikan toner kembali jika diperlukan
Notes:
  • Karena formulanya yang ringan dan alami, sisa-sisa make up yang masih nempel di wajah harus dibersihkan lagi dengan face wash dan aplikasikan toner kembali jika dirasa perlu 
Selamat mencoba and good luck!

How to Make Over Your Tight Instant Scarf

Last month, my mom bought me an instant scarf but sadly it doesn't fit me very well. It is too tight on my face that makes it look narrow and smaller. It is so uncomfortable to wear somemore; make me look more like ibuk-ibuk. Wkwkwk...



I love my mom very much that I won't let this scarf end up useless... So... my creative hands become itching and I instantly got an idea to make over this scarf with the help of scissors.

What did I do? I carefully cut the thick pet (top part) of the scarf...

bye bye tightness...

Then... with the help of my cotton-inner scarf, I can now wear my scarf with 4 color selections of pet...


Here are the results...

soft grey... calmness

dark grey... coolness

off-white... mystical

baby pink... cuteness  
So what do you think guys?

Kicking Out Disappointment

Why oh Why

Why are we so easy to judge people with zero level of knowing about each other?
People say, don't judge a book by its cover. It is true, but I know it is also not easy to stop our mind from labeling someone that passes our eyes.

For example, you were roaming in the market when you saw a very fat lady walked by. Your mind unconsciously said, what a gigantic aunty! look at her boobs. how did she find bra in that size, how will her husband.... etc, etc, etc

Isn't that kind of thing happen often? When we see something and our mind instantly starts thinking: this is good, this is bad, that looks so ugly, OMG she's so stupid, that's so cheap, mines better, yours worse, etc, etc.

He uses iPhone; he must be a rich-urban man. 
An aunty walks holding hands with a younger-looking man; she must be a slutty lady and he must be using her for her money.
That polkadot blouse with that ugly skirt and that dull scarf; she must be coming from a poor family with a horrible taste of fashion without any mirror in her room.

Now...

What if the fact is: he got the iPhone from stealing?
What if the fact is: they are just married, no matter that the woman is 15 years older, they find a truly comfort in each other and both are already settled down 
What if the fact is: she is a medical doctor who needs to go to the hospital immediately to save the patient so that she picks randomly what she can reach in her closet

See?

Don't easily fall in to conclusion about something that you don't have knowledge about. It is better to remain in neutral even positive vibe. Train to keep your mind away from thinking bad and most important of all, always be kind to people no matter how bad their cover look. 

==============================================================================

Ok my friend. I am feeling so sad now. And down as well.

I just came home from a scholarship interview and it didn't go very well if I may score myself. I was opt to continue my graduate study in UI so that the reviewers constantly ask, why UI? Why don't you take abroad university? Have you done any browsing for the overseas university? You don't challenge yourself? Your TOEFL score is not good enough to get to university abroad. Bla, bla, bla. What the heck is wrong with taking local university? I don't know if it's me that's never been good in pointing an argument but I don't think I delivered reasons that pleased them. Just let see how's the result in the next 2 weeks. Still I have a slight hope for the best result and definitely expect get myself ready for the worst: get rejected.

In other case, I am also sad that someone whom I've never talked in real before judged me RUDE just based on a text-chat.

He was the first that disappointed me on a phone call; I was busy talking and he surprisingly gone sleep on the other side of the phone. I instantly got upset lah! Why? Becoz already told him in advance; if you want to sleep you can go sleep and take some rest but he replied; no, no, I will sleep later.

I then continued talking and rambling before I realized that he didn't give any reply. I kept hello-ing; hello, hello, you there, you there, reply me please, you there, you sleep, where are you going, hello, hello, hello...

I then closed the phone and texted him, go to hell; 3 words that I already regret typing it right second after I pressed enter. But what can I do, the text's already sent and I couldn't delete it. 

So I guess he read it in the next morning and we didn't have any contact for the next 5 days. I keep thinking if it hurts him over and over before I decided to apologize for saying that words. He accepted my apology and asked back for apology for making me upset by leaving me on the phone like that. But then he said, are you always like that when you're upset, being rude?

What? Rude? Oh come on!

You also wrote that go to hell in your status. Now I am saying that words right in front of you thus you call me RUDE? How can you say that I am rude? Based on what? In what capacity have you been in touch with me? Have you known me very well so that you can say that I am a rude girl? Have you talked to me face to face? Have you been in difficult situation with me that wakes the evil up inside me? The answer is all NO!

I don't mean to say that I am the sweet girl that saying all sweet and wise words. No. Not at all.

When I am upset I do curse. When something went wrong I say bad words as well. But that doesn't mean that I keep saying that on the daily basis to every people. No. 

Just ask my close friends or my family (unless mom and my sister of course, hahah), none of them will ever say that I am a rude person.

It feels sad, you know. It feels sad when someone who barely knows you put a bad label on you just like that.

:'( :'(
