Random: My 2nd Stop Motion Project for Video Contest

Hello everyoneee~~ ^^

Actually I didn't plan to write about this, but I can't help myself to not write about it XD
I just submitted my submission today for this contest.. *yayyyy*
(today is the last day and Thanks God I could made it ^____^)

Though I don't expect too much to win, I just wanna give my best ^^
I really like stop motion video and still trying to improve my skill...
I want to learn many things >w< 

Just want to reminisce my 1st stop motion video (last year):
Concept: If you have any chance to go Korea, what will you do there?
I'm so embarrassed with my own 1st video.. Sooo lame and unattractive =__=
But, always there is 1st time for everybody, aren't we?

Lola Box October!

Hello, I'm back again with Lola Box October! :D
For those of you who doesn't know what is Lola Box, as far as I know Lola Box is 1st pioneer of Beauty Box trend in Indonesia :) I'm feel honored could unboxed Lola Box again, for this month. 
Thank you Lola Box Team! 

Started from outer packaging, mine is still comes in white box (ce Mindy got her box in carton box).
I'm thankful for Lola Box team's neatness, for not putting liquid product inside, so my Lola boxes never got drenched :D Pernah ada kejadian Beauty Box lain (bukan Lola Box) memasukkan produk sejenis shampoo yang berat dan banyak cairannya, sehingga box nya pernah kebasah-an x__x

When I opened the outer box, I found Promotional Card of Laneige Indonesia. You can exchange this card to get more Laneige Trial Size (Laneige counters: SEIBU GI, Sogo Kota Kasablanka, SOGO PIM, SOGO MKG, SOGO CP), and this card is no use for me.. Since there's no Laneige counter in Surabaya ._.

Say hello again to the pretty Lola~

Are you ready to see what's inside? :D

 More brochures inside:

Complete descriptions of this month's Lola Box:

Overall thoughts:
This month's Lolabox is definitely not my favorite, because the fullsize products is only Rudy Hadisuwarno Hair Serum and Elianto Eyebrow pencil :/ For the my most favorite item inside is Rudy Hadisuwarno Hair Serum (gonna try it very soon) and my least favorite item is the samples and Elianto Eyebrow Pencil (my eyebrow becomes so thick after use it x_x)

UPDATE 22/06/2015:
Unfortunately Lolabox has shut down their business last year :(

Thanks for reading~ ^^

With Love,

Lucido-L Hair Vitamin Oil [review]

Dry, frizzy and rebellious hair always make me not confident recently.. I have very dry and quite damaged hair ;__; I guess it's because I tend to go outside with motorcycle and dyed my hair.
Well, do you name a website named YukCoba.In? Couple days ago I registered myself there, pick a product that attracted me most and hoping for a luck. Few days later, a lady from YukCoba.In called me, and asked for my complete address, because they were going to send my a product to be reviewed! 
You can try your luck here, and be one of the reviewer of YukCoba.In ^^ 

Okay, I'd like to share a review about Lucido-L Hair Vitamin Oil :)

 Very unique packaging, it's so handy and travel friendly :D It's also easy to grip with such a shape.

It has quite greasy texture, definitely (because it's made from oil). 
However I'm not bothered by its texture :)

It absorbs well into my hair. I'm not lying, it DOES really moisturizing my hair.

Mizzu Eyeliner Pen [review]

Hello everyone~ ^-^ Sorry for lack of updates lately.. >_<
Seriously, hard to find sufficient time to do experiments with makeup ;_; I work since morning up to evening and I have plenty activities (mostly in church) afterwards.. *___* Sorry

Anyway, today I'd like to introduce you a new local brand named MIZZU.
Because, it's only sold in Indonesia, I will talk in Bahasa Indonesia then ^^

Sebenernya udah cukup penasaran nih sama Mizzu Eyeliner Pen yang satu ini. Pertama kali liat eyeliner ini, sempet kepikiran ini eyeliner abal-abal/gak jelas loh.. O_O tapi ternyata dugaanku salah..
Eyeliner ini bukan produk abal-abal dan udah terdaftar BPOM juga. Curious? ;D
I got mine in shade Black couple of days ago ^.^

Bentuk dari eyeliner ini sendiri adalah pen (felt tip), jadi menurutku sangat mudah diaplikasikan sih. Boleh jadi salah satu rekomendasi bagi pemula yang baru belajar pake eyeliner juga :)
Di produksi & didistribusikan oleh:
PT. Astoria Prima
Jakarta Indonesia
BPOM NO: NA18111202612

Packagingnya sendiri sih sangat simpel, dengan warna dominan hitam dan box nya yang terbuat dari plastik. Untuk ukuran eyeliner dengan harga yang sangat terjangkau sih, ini udah termasuk oke banget :P
Warna hitam seperti ini cukup menciptakan kesan elegan dan netral, sehingga Mizzu bisa dipakai oleh setiap kalangan masyarakat.

Mizzu mempersembahkan trend terbaru berupa eyeliner pen dengan kuas tipis dan mudah digunakan. Merata dengan sempurna saat diaplikasikan, memberikan bentuk yang tegas pada daerah mata. Mudah untuk dibawa kemana saja.

Felt Tip:
Ujung eyeliner pen ini cukup empuk, ngga bikin kelopak mata terasa sakit saat diaplikasikan :D
Pegangannya juga mantep, jadi bisa bikin eyeliner dalam berbagai macam gaya, hohoho~

Aqua, Acrylates Copolymer, Glycerin, Xanthan Gum, Propylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, CI77266, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Caster Oil, Laureth-21, Sodium Dehydrocetate.

Menurut aku pribadi, warna hitamnya sih ngga terlalu pekat.. Jadi perlu oleh 2-3x kalau mau dapetin hasil warna hitam yang sangat pekat. Aku pun bisa membuat garis tipis maupun tebal dengan dengan mudah :)

Setelah aku mengadakan eksperimen kecil, eyeliner ini ngga terlalu tahan kalo digosok :s Lama-lama jadi memudar warnanya.. (Not smudgeproof). Tapi eyeliner ini terbukti waterproof (dengan catetan: ngga boleh digosok kalo pas kena air >_<)

Yang paling aku suka dari eyeliner ini ya, HARGANYA XD
Eyeliner Pen ini dijual berkisar IDR 25rb-45rb ^_^ Harga yang super duper terjangkau kalau dibandingkan dengan Dolly Wink Liquid Liner (yang sampai sekarang keinginanku untuk beli, blm kesampaian T_T)

Eyeliner ini kini jadi andalanku kalau aku sedang buru-buru, soalnya cuma butuh waktu beberapa detik untuk mengaplikasikannya :p

Why I look so chubby? ._.

What I love <3
+ Super affordable (around IDR 25k-40k)
+ Easy application
+ Waterproof

What I hate </3
- Not smudgeproof
- Only last for 4-5 hours on my eyelid
- Not-so black color (need 2-3 swipes to get the blackest color)

Rating: 3.5 / 5
Repurchase? I think yes :)
Who might like it? Makeup beginner, someone who look for affordable felt tip liner/pen eyeliner ^_^

If you're interested to try, you can contact Bunny Beaute Cosmetics :)
Selain jual Mizzu eyeliner, Bunny Beaute juga buka PO brand lain seperti The Balm, Sleek, Sephora, Etude House, BH Cosmetics dll ^_^

Okayyy I think that's all. Hope you find this review helpful~
See you on my next post :D

Miss Flower Korea Trip Day 4: Paragliding & Meet Standing Egg!

Day 4 of my trip was officially remarked my lowest healthiness level during the trip T_T
Due to lack of sleep, lack of mineral water and chilly weather made my body was unwell >_<
My eyes also got irritated, so I didn't use soft lens that day ._. made me feel inconfident in front of camera.. Because my eyes are so small XDD LOL.
However, my body couldn't stand for low temperature for days (because I'm used to live in tropical country, which has high temperature) and I didn't bring thick jacket...
I'm thankful that Ms. Seony kindly lent me her spare jacket for days, really life saver XD If you read this, 너무 감사합니다 서니씨!

Wednesday, 8th May, 2013

10 AM - 1 PM (GMT +9):
Paragliding at Juwolsan Mountain 주월산
Location: Boseong County 보성군
Weather: terribly chilly (for me, who were unhealthy that day XD)

Actually when the first day I received the information book from KTO staff, I was so excited about this paragliding XD
This would be my first paragliding in my life for sure! But unfortunately due to this sickness, I couldn't feel the same excitement like the first day ㅠ_ㅠ
Ms. Seony and Ms. Sujin were worried of me and asked if I'm okay or not. I know that this sickness is symptom of "Masuk Angin" in Indonesia, but I dunno how to tell them @___@
What is "masuk angin" in English term??? Finally I said that I got little fever, OTL... Since I dunno how to express this sickness... =.=a

I like Boseong's sky very much.. very blue and clear... ^.^
For those of you who asked about my transportation... We were travelling by tour bus from KTO! ^^
So don't ask me how to reach this place from Seoul, Ok? Because I also don't know XDD Use google maps instead :3

English Team (left to right): Fye & Kinna from Malaysia, Adele from Vietnam, Me, Joyce & Mj from Philippine and Andy from Vietnam

In this tour, unofficially we made 2 teams and named us as "English Team" and "Chinese Team". English Team is consist of Me, Adele, Kinna, Fye, Andy, Joyce & Mj. Meanwhile Chinese Team is consist of Suzan, Vienne, Junyi, Edith and Selina and they got a special tour leader that speaks in Chinese. In this tour, I talked a lot with English Team because we can communicate in English (though my English isn't really good XD), while I can't talk a lot with Chinese Team because their English vocabulary is very limited >_< unfortunately..

So, basically we need to ride up a car and going up to the peak of Juwolsan Mountain, and every carry only can carry 10-12 passengers including driver and few staffs from Juwolsan Paragliding. While waiting for others who have went to Juwolsan earlier, we enjoying the view of Boseong and looking up to the sky :)

Camwhoring while waiting for my turn to ride car. :p
sunny today~~ my eyes can't open properly *___*

After few minutes, finally I got into the car and going up to the top of the Juwolsan Mountain, and here I was! ^^

That is the wing of paragliding! ^^
For people who can control the paragliding, we can call it "pilot". Every participant got a pilot behind our back to control the wing, harness and brake. So what I need to do is only "sit" on the unique backpack that can be used as "chair" XD

This is the unique "chair backpack" that I meant

I could feel the temperature of the weather was getting lower T___T I was kinda "freezing".
I wish I had in healthy condition that day T____T
Excited?? :D

Today I wasn't too excited to take photos because I tend to get nausea easily that day >_<
But, because I have been this far, why I don't take many photos while I can? LOL

Some of cute kindergarten Korean children also came to Juwolsan Mountain XD
Look at their expressions! So pure and cute hahaha

Okay.. it's my turn to take off..




1, 2, 3!!

My heart beats so fast *____* This was my very first paragliding ever!
What a really nice experience ^^
I was kinda afraid that I would fall, or my camera would fall..
I can't imagine what if my camera falls from that high, of course it can't be survive -.-"

My pilot taught me how to take self-camera while paragliding XD
And here they are.. my photos above there!

Okay, time's to going down.. the temperature was getting chillier and my body couldn't stand it anymore TT__TT then I said to my pilot that I want to going down.. It was really cold.. "진짜 추워요..."

Paragliding time was over.. It was really fun but I couldn't really enjoy it because I wasn't healthy enjoy and feel powerless over there >___< Never mind, at least I have tried to paraglided for the first time ^^
Thank you KTO for such an opportunity! 

Now, I NEED something to fill this hungry stomach.. I hope I got some appetite to eat >_<
Eat a lot -> getting healthier LOL

That was my first time seeing real octopus with that size *__* 
I'm used to seeing octopus in pieces form (like in takoyaki)
please excuse my silly expressions.. gyahahaha~

Well, we need to cut it into pieces before eat it. Andy the good chef from English Team kindly cut the octopus :p kekekeke
Andy and Adele from Vietnam, they are going to get marry next year!! ^.^ Wohooo!

Now time to eat!
Nom nom nom~ We also got some clamps and mushrooms :D
For the taste? It's quite good in my preference. Unfortunately I can't really eat octopus because they're too chewy for my braced teeth >____< But I ate the clamps and veggies a lot.

When I about to leave this restaurant, I found out a interesting machine XD 
Sterilizer! Wow, I think still there's no this kind of machine in my country.. Cool!

They used it to sterilize cups ^^

We also meet cute local dog before leaving the restaurant ^^ It might be the owner's dog!

Another group photo! ;)

Are you ready for next destination? *___*
Actually, I totally forgot about this day.. I was going to meet STANDING EGG!
Suddenly I feel panic because I didn't have proper preparation *__*
I didn't wear my contact lens and my hair was so messy >___<
How if I looks bad in front of camera? Oh dear, it's too late now..

Anyway, not forget to explain.. Standing Egg is an Korean indies Korean Acoustic Pop band from Korea ^___^ and I'm a big fan of them(♥___♥)
I love their genuine songs!

We just need to take a seat, and listen to them singing for us! 

Because they are barely shows their faces, we even don't know how many members that they have >__<
I only know that they have some sub-units and they call themselves like Egg 1, Egg 2 etc

She's Windy!

Sorry I forgot their name ;___; They only mentioned their Korean Name and it's quite hard to pronounce, so I didn't remember their name, except Windy..
I really love Windy's voice ^^ You can listen to her voice in Standing Egg's singles: A Perfect Day & Ballad with Windy.

We also meet Egg 2! Egg 2 is one of the great composers in Standing Egg. You can listen to his voice from Standing Egg's songs: Little Star and Juliet. Eventually he asked us to not show his face to public, so that's why I censored his face :p Please forgive me. 
I think his twitter is: @golden_groove, and please follow Standing Egg's official twitter
Subscribe their awesome Youtube channel! ^^ You won't regret it!

group photo, along with Windy and Egg 2

I also got personal autographs from Standing Egg's members!! *so happy*
Unfortunately I have to censor Egg 2's face .__. 
He is too humble and don't want public recognize his real face *hats off*

Location: Sinan Jeungdo 신안 증도, Sinan County 신안군
Weather: Still chilly

We're going to stay for a night here ;)

Went inside my room! :D
Thankfully I got first floor, meanwhile other girls who has larger and bigger baggage got upper floor and there's no elevator here *___* Yes, they had to use stairs...

Every room has shower, mini kitchen, terrace, TV and soon.
From some hotels that I've been stayed in Korea, this room is the simplest room so far.. There are no sophisticated technology. Well, this is a small Island and they call this city as "Slow-city" in positive way :)

After checked-in, and dropped our luggage, we gathered to the beach :D
