A Post With So Many Labels (and Words)...


I had a big thing to announce but I will talk about it later. Maybe next year. If only you guys care. Meanwhile....


Sights of Europe with South-East map as background. The Eiffel Tower, the swan, and the harbor were captured by Thia (Instagram : ThiaElz) with her Lomo. I went to her place last week and she got this pocket, full of these kind of hipster photos (that was what she said) and well yeah, I HAD to grab some of them, hehe. Her new kitchen is cool, one side of its wall is fully covered with cork, a pin board material. So yeah... she is free to pin anything up there. A giant pin board, I'll totally get one for my future working space, or bedroom.

Those photos are so... postcard.


And I just bought my second Paul Arden book (I worship him), Whatever You Think, Think The Opposite. I terribly need a BIG self-help right now so, I thank God for these readings. It's Not How Good You Are, It's How Good You Want To Be was actually a birthday gift for a friend, but I took it back because it is much more useful to me. I will replace the book with another, better gift. I hope he will read this.


Again, today, I just finished watching Moonrise Kingdom, movie of the year in my version. Errr I didn't watch a lot of movies this year (confession : the last time I went to cinema was when I went to watch The Avengers) and the excuse is not I don't have any company, but simply because I wasn't really interested, I'd rather spend my money for shopping and I'm easily distracted with any kind of annoying audiences around my seat. Too many bunch of chatty girls who discussed the whole story during the film or screaming babies.
And oh about the Moonrise Kingdom itself, it was set in 1965, which is already a huge reason why do I love this movie so much. The two protagonists, Suzy and Sam, make an undeniably lovely couple although their look contrasted with each other. Suzy is so beautiful, she has a 24-years-old look in 12-years-old figure. Sam, oh, Sam, he is tremendously cute like a baby. Their story was written in an uncanny plot, and totally enjoyable.
I liked Moonrise Kingdom's Fan Page months before I managed to watch this movie. Tavi Gevinson was the one who introduced this movie on her blog. And speaking about Tavi....



She liked the self-portrait artwork that I made for her on Instagram!!! And I realized it after the notification was sent five days ago. Couldn't be happier! She has became my big muse since I started to stalk her a few weeks ago, and a lot of weird projects popped up in my mind. Involving old Barbie toys and another abandoned stuffs that I kept inside the treasure box of my childhood.



This ultra cute painting of me was made by Hanna, so surprised when she sent me this hehe... and as an art trade, I sent her this. Quite similar because of the pink-ness, bunny, Wonderland-theme and cupcake?



Nah that's all what I have got so far. I talked quite a lot, I feel better.
