#just5things : to Achieve Everyday Look

Okay, this is another #just5things series.
These are my go-to 5 items to get ready in a day (with a good look).
I often just go out with bare face and anything without any efforts. But if I want a good look in a day, these are my favorite things.

1. Moisturizer !

I can’t start my day (after showering) without moisturizer. It makes my face feel really good and hydrated. My current favorite is Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer. It’s so good. It does its jobs well.

2. Eyebrow Pencil

Because the existence of my eyebrows hair is limited edition… I really can’t live without brow stuffs! They’re really help me a lot. My go to favorite is Benefit Cosmetics Precisely My Brow Pencil in shade 6 – Deep. It makes your eyebrow look perfectly and natural.

Why it’s your #3!? It’s really important!
Well… yeah~ I know it’s important.. but still, for me, it’s my number 3.
I can go out without the rest of this list, just moist and brow.
Current SPF that I use is Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Sunscreen. I don’t have any comment in this product yet.

4. Tinted Lip Balm

I prefer lip balm because whatever my lip’s condition it always be a bestfriend to her.
It gives natural flush on the lips yet moisturizing at the same time. My all time favorite lip balm is Kiehl’s one but in this go-to condition I always use my Canmake Stay on Balm Rouge in shade 05.

If I want my hair looks a bit curly on the bottom, I always use this magic sponge tool. It makes your hair look like you have done it with flat iron or curling iron.

Experiencing Luwak Coffee at Bali Pulina

Last July, we went to Tegalalang, Gianyar.
I asked to try Bali Pulina because I saw many beautiful photos there.
But… we didn’t do search about the place first.
So.. Actually Bali Pulina is all about Luwak coffee. We were given a guide to tell us about how to get Luwak coffee, step by step.
We have to pay IDR 100K per person and we’ll exchange it to try many drinks and snacks.

Sama Sama Japanese Restaurant

On the fourth of July, my birthday, my family, bf and me went to dinner.
We went to Sama Sama for all-you-can-eat dinner. I’ve never been there. So, my mom want to let me try it.
I’m so excited. So, I planned to prepare my belly to consume that a lot of foods. But I failed. At noon, I ate my favorite chicken noodles in town. The place called Bakmi Dempo 91 (I was really surprised they have a website!). I love their big noodles.

We arrived at 6 PM I believe. I’ve booked the place for 6 of us yesterday but they said I never called. I pretty disappointed that day. Like… If you missed to note costumer’s booking, then you didn’t have to blame the costumer. I don’t have to give the proof that I’ve called to the waitress right? Just let us in though (the place wasn’t full either).
Well, that day was my birthday. Wont let anybody ruined it.
So…
We ordered 150k IDR all-you-can-eat package. Not include seafood menu. We just want beef, pork, and chicken… and we ate A LOT.

The package comes with some side dishes like salad, sushi, edamame, rice, and some kind of pancake in Japanese version.

The package has limit time to eat. We only have 90 minutes to order and eat.
But for me, that’s enough to have a super full belly. Well.. maybe some of you not satisfied. *peace*
The foods are good. I really enjoy it.
That day we ate the AC room because my sister preferred that. But I choose to eat outside, because the smoke really made my eyes burned.

The conclusion is I love the food, the place is nice, I hope I never see the waitress again because I want to eat there again. If I want all-you-can-eat type of meal of course.

Face Scrub Update! Stay or Switch?

Do you remember my older post about Sensatia Botanicals Acne Clarifying Series?
In that post, I tested the facial scrub and the mask.
And…. my final thought is… I will not use it again.

The Mask.
I noticed that after used it several times, I can’t handle the stings. I already used it reaally far from eye area.. but still.. it stings. Also, my face didn’t feel happy with the mask. My face becomes itchy everytime I used (after the first impression). So I don’t like it.

The Scrub.
With this one I don’t really have any complaints.
But.. I don’t use it again after my face became itch.
And I just bought another scrub from St. Ives.
Yeah, the famous Apricot Srub.

Gigi Hadid loves it and swears by it! That’s why I tried it to be honest.
And.. I LOVE IT!
It makes my face soo smooth. Even smoother and brighter than the Sensatia one (and I think also greater than the Kiehl’s one that I’ve tried).
I really really love it.

But..
I just read that this scrub is bad and just got lawsuit problems.
I really confused and sad because it feels so good…
What do you think about this? Let me know..

Hidden Canyon

Last week, my boyfriend came and we went to Hidden Canyon in Guwang, Gianyar – Bali.
I was really excited that day but I didn’t think that it would be a lot of hard works to get there.
I couldn’t took photos at all. It was really terrifying.. at least for me. I remember I was brave enough to take some difficult tracks but now I am a coward.. sadly 😦
But I’m not giving up guys! I can’t took photos because we have to climb. I prefer not in the water that day. So, our guide who took the photos of us, on entire trip.
For enter the canyon, we have to pay Rp 15k/person and a guide for Rp 100k.
We just explored Canyon 1 (there are 3 canyons) because at noon we want to go to Tukad Cepung Waterfall.

Jin Jin Bali

I miss donburi meal near my ex-office and my sister has been wanting to try Jin Jin, a donburi teppan restaurant at Renon.
So, we decided to go there and have lunch.

The place not too big but not too small either.
They have comfortable environment, like any Japanese Restaurant in general.
We order at the cashier and pay first.
My sister ordered Beef Yakiniku Don and I ordered Chicken Katsu Don, comfort food.
I always like chicken more than beef.

IMG_8590

The taste’s not bad. Yummy though.
But.. I love my Donburi Ichiya more.. And this couldn’t cure my craving.
For the price, I expected Japanese rice which is more chewy. I think in those bowls are regular rice.
I love how they cooked the eggs under the chicken katsu.
For the beef one, I can’t say anything. It’s yakiniku. I’m not a fan of all yakiniku meal.
So.. you know that I won’t like it.

That’s all about my visit to Jin Jin.
See you again!
