Los Angeles Dream

The other night i had a dream of Los Angeles. I miss this city and the sweet memory I had on the end of 2014. It was a fine day at The Americana @ Brand. I like their al fresco shopping block like The Grove and Americana. Hope to come back here again soon. Most of all I missed all the good food, and my dearest little brother. 

February for me has been filled with extreme happiness and disappointment. They said I'm too naive. Perhaps I have known it all along but I chose to keep quiet. I know what you have said, and what you have done. Time like this, I like to escape my crammed mind and walk on the lane of happy memories. Let me be happy for a while, why can't you be happy when i am happy?











Rene Caovilla visited On Pedder, Jakarta

Late January 2015, On Pedder brought Edoardo Caovilla, all the way from Riviera del Brenta in Venice to On Pedder in Jakarta for a set of exclusive private customer appointments and a special in-store cocktail soiree. The event will celebrate the brand’s highly anticipated upcoming Cruise 2015 collection, along with its Autumn/Winter 2014 collection.



Edoardo Caovilla, 38 years old, born in Venice. At the end of 2009 he entered the company as C.O.O. and in 2014 has been appointed Creative Director of the brand. This year Caovilla celebrates its 80th anniversary with Edoardo taking the lead of the company and representing the 3rd generation running it.






For the brand’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection, the classical aesthetic codes of Caovilla, such as laces, crystals and opulent of colours, is mixed with some unexpected shapes and prints. Look out for the gold lace embellished high-top sneakers, and the designer’s classic jewelled flat pumps, juxtaposed with a jacquard metallic silver and neon yellow fabric. Styles from the designer’s Cruise 2015 collection includes the ultra-practical-meets-ultra-stylish pointed-toe slimmer style flats, with oversized crystal and gold embellished detailing, and turquoise python pointed high-heel pumps.

Louis Vuitton Valentine Soiree


Despite the flood, there are so many events happening in February. One of them is Louis Vuitton Valentine Soiree that took place in Pacific Place. It started with a lovely afternoon high tea at the newly opened Cork & Screw. Together with +Anastasia Siantar we spent the golden hours chit chatting while sipping on our favourite fuel: coffee. 





So many guests could not make it to the event due to the flood in Jakarta. It is a pity but we still have lots of fun with the friendly #LV_indonesia team. Besides having more lovely dessert in store, we were taught on how to do several tricks in tying a proper scarf, in a chic LV way. I had the chance to have an eye feast on their new collections in bright red and coral. In celebration of the year of the wooden ram, we could even personalise any leather goods we purchase with a cute ram (goat) stamp in any colour available for initials stamping.

The store is beautifully decorated with pink roses all over. Great blend of decoration for upcoming valentine and Chinese New Year. Do you know what you're going to wear for these two occasions yet?
I wish you a lovely day ahead peeps! ;) xx

A Better You

Still remember your new year resolutions?
I am setting my #levelup resolutions on my relationship, finance, physical fitness, emotional and spiritual. Setting clear goals at the beginning of the year helps you focus on the direction you are going.

Don't let your resolutions just be another pile of lists. Grab a partner or partners to keep you on track each month and reward yourself for every milestone reached. An unsupportive partner (read: negative ,energy-sucking boyfriend/girlfriend) will cause you to fail faster than a roller coaster. You cannot change a person, it's either you start accepting them or living without them.

In terms of my resolutions i am focussing most of my time on relationship and physical fitness this month. I am still struggling to shed my winter weights from LA (regrets come later). But it has been 3 weeks now and i am picking up the routine. It truly feels great to be back to my healthy lifestyle. The goal is to lose 7% body fat within 4 months. I am not particular with weight scale, as long as my clothes fit right and I feel healthy & energetic. Currently I am doing mixture of weights (body pump & free weights), HIIT (treadmill interval run, power jump & fast fit class) and yoga (vinyasa, anti-gravity & power yoga) at least 4 times a week at 90 mins/session. Will update you with progress pictures soon :)

As for relationship, I want to make more time for family & close friends. I think they deserve the love and attention for all they have done. Sometimes i wonder what did i do so good that God placed them in my life. A simple quality time is now worth more than any expensive fancy gift you can buy.

Joy is You

I hope you have crossed off most of your to do list in January and got the momentum going.
It's February already, and it's my second favourite month of the year after my birthday month. Lol. 
We celebrate love and relationship because it is worth celebrating. Chinese New Year also fall less than a week after valentine. Having Chinese blood, it is a yearly tradition to gather with big family and relatives. 
These days it is so easy to get carried away with your gadgets and forget the precious presence of your closed ones. Appreciate them when they have make time to be with you. Lately i have been hearing #Cadbury campaign "Joy is You" a lot in my fave radio station: Jak FM. I think they delivered a crystal clear message. Much too often we are busy with our phones even when we are on a date. They got this interesting application that will be an automatic timer once you put down your phone. When you open an application (to check your email/message) the timer will be off. Simple yet smart idea. For those FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out syndrome) people out there, it's time to be more present and savour your loved ones! ;)
