Kailijumei Jelly Flower lipstick

What : Color changing flower jelly lipstick according to your body temperature. It went viral after so many beauty bloggers put it online.
Products : Color changing lip moisturiser
My choice will be : Barbiedoll power and Minute Maid
Review :
  • It looked so pretty tho, there is real dried flower and gold flakes
  • No matter what color the flower is, color changing lipstick will turn PINK on your lips.
  • It comes with different cover, there are red ones with mirrors, or plain gold ones or some blink blink which i did not buy.
  • Now, the truth is cosmetic products like this has been around in the past. It is just a beautiful version of color changing lipstick. So quality wise, it is very.. normal nothing special, even though it last very long on your lips after drinking and heavy meals. Pretty impressive.
  • There is this thing that i can not take, that it has ‘weird’ scent. People said it smells like vanilla or sweet scent. To me, it smells bad. Like candle or plastic. Instead of wearing lipstick i felt like applying candle wax onto my lips.
  • Do i recommend you to buy this? No. But if you want to have it as photo accessories or decorating your make up vanity table, please go ahead 🙂 It is pretty.
  • Pricey for this quality. This should be sold really cheap in the market.
  • Whoever made this product must have good sense of humor. It is made in china but on the box it said “Kailijumei Germany” lol.

Taman Sari

Adalah : Tempat untuk Raja/Sultan beristirahat, acara, atau sebagai tempat persembunyian.

Baik dikunjungi untuk mengenal secara lebih tentang peninggalan budaya kerajaan/kesultanan di Yogyakarta. Ada cerita menarik dibalik bangunan ini meskipun tempatnya sudah tua dan tidak terpelihara dengan baik. Sebaiknya jika mengunjungi tempat ini didampingi oleh tour guide yang ada disitu untuk cerita lebih jelasnya. Biaya tour guide tidak lebih dari 100 ribu rupiah. Mereka hanya minta seikhlasnya. Saya memberi kira kira 50 ribu, waktu kungjungan waktu itu tidak lebih dari 1 jam.

Dibangun sejak : Pertengahan abad ke 18
Buka Jam :  Sekitar jam 8 pagi – 2:30 sore
Cara pergi : Telepon taxi Blue Bird Jogja  (0274) 6411234. Jika kamu pergi ke Taman Sari dari keraton cukup naik becak saja. Sangat mudah kemana mana sambil menikmati suasana kota Yogyakarta. TIdak terlalu jauh jarak dari keraton ke taman sari, biaya sekitar 20ribu-50 ribu (tergantung jarak dan seikhlasnya kamu mau memberi).
Lokasi :  Jl. Taman, Yogyakarta, Indonesia
Harga masuk : Lokal Rp. 3000, Warga asing sekitar Rp. 7000

Review :
  • There is always hype, long queue, and that is the only reason my curiosity began.
  • Fun antique themed restaurant.
  • Price is very cheap, menu is interesting. Taste average to me.
  • The waiters are dressed up in fancy javanese costume
  • Worth going to see if you are international tourist
  • There is something dark, mystical feeling or just different ambience, at least for me, lol.  Being here once is enough. I would rather go somewhere else bright and easier located restaurant.
  • Good experience tho 🙂

Adalah : Restoran yang bertema Jawa namun eksenterik, seperti perpaduan antara tradisional dan modern di gabung menjadi satu.

Pendapat saya :
  • Restoran ini selalu kelihatan ramai dengan pengunjung, selalu ada antrean, dan hal ini membuat saya jadi ingin mengunjunginya.
  • Dekorasi yang amat sangat unik.
  • Harga makanannya sangat murah meriah, menu tradisional Indonesia, namun buat saya rasanya biasa saja.
  • Pelayannya sebagian besar cowo cowo berpakaian unik jawa.
  • Sangat rekomended jika kamu mau membawa turis mancanegara.
  • Ada sesuatu yang gelap, mistik atau yang berbeda, mungkin saya terbawa suasana saja waktu itu haha. Pergi ketempat ini cukup sekali. Mungkin untuk saya lebih memilih tempat terang dan restoran yang mudah di akses.
  • Paling tidak, saya mendapat pengalaman berharga 🙂

Kebun Begonia (Begonia garden)

What : Collection of garden flower located in Lembang area, Bandung
Opening hours : There is not much information about opening hours and i did not see it when i visited the garden. Just go during the daytime, it should be open.
How to go there : If you are going to Lembang area, it is best to rent a car.
Location :

Jl. Maribaya No. 120A, Jawa Barat

Admission fee : Rp.10,000 (about $1), but if you are going to use  dslr camera in the garden you have to pay another Rp.50,000 ($5). To me this is not nice. There is not much to shoot but ripping people off. Not worth it at all.

Photos taken by iPhone 5S:

Pretty much all the view

“Healthy Vegetable Experiment” according to the signage

Kebun Begonia

Cara pergi : Jika kamu berpergian ke daerah lembang lebih baik menyewa mobil atau menggunakan mobil probadi
Lokasi : Jl. Maribaya No. 120A, Jawa Barat
Harga masuk : Rp. 10,000. Tapi jika kamu membawa kamera DSLR atau sejenisnya, kamu harus membayar extra Rp.50,000. Menurut saya taman dengan harga segini hanya karna menggunakan kamera DSLR atau digital lainnya tidak sepadan.

Younique Lip Stain: Stiff Upper Lip Stain

What : Long lasting liquid lipstain
Products : Stiff Upper Lip Stain by Younique
Review :
  • So far, this is the best for me, compared to previous experiences. I have tried lip stain product from Benefit, Etude, Peripera, Vincent Longo, Revlon, Smashbox, etc. Because it is non-drying eventhough you do not apply balm and just feel good on your lips, plus no funny smells. Honestly it does not last for a day (never believe the commercial marketing advertisement) , it will fade a little after eating and drinking but what i am trying to say is it fades nicely, unlike the others. You will need to re-apply again when it fades aways.
  • Will i repurchase this product? yes!
  • Since it is the best that i have purchased, i have nothing much to say. It is not too expensive, not too cheap too. But better save your money from buying low quality cosmetics, there is no point.

Younique Lip Stain: Stiff Upper Lip Stain

Adalah : Produk kosmetik untuk pemerah bibir
Produk : Stiff Upper Lip Stain by Younique
Pendapat :
  • Selama ini, lipstain dari kosmetik Younique adalah yang terbaik berdasarkan pengalaman sebelumnya. Saya pernah mencoba produk lipstain yang lain dari Benefit, Etude, Peripera, Vincent Longo, Revlon, Smashbox, dan yang lainnya. Karena lipstain ini amat sangat nyaman di bibir dan tidak akan menyebabkan rasa bibir kering sama sekali, meskipun kamu tidak memakai lipbalm sebelum itu, dan tidak berbau yang aneh aneh.
  • Jujur saja, tidak seperti di iklan-iklan lipstain yang tahan sampe berjam-jam bahkan seharian itu tidak mungkin. Kecuali kamu bobok pakai lipstainnya. hahaha. Yeah habis makan atau minum pasti akan memudar sedikit demi sedikit. Tapi lipstain ini tidak langsung hilang seperti lipstain lipstain biasanya. Dibanding dengan yang lain jelas ini lebih tahan lama.
  • Karena saya merasa ini lipstain yang terbaik yang pernah saya punya, jadi tidak banyak yang harus ulas dari segi kualitas. Berdasarkan harga, kalau di bandingkan dengan yang lain tidak terlalu mahal, namun tidak terlalu murah juga. Yang jelas lebih baik kamu jangan membeli make up dengan kualitas yang tidak ok.

Younique Mascara: Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

What : Mascara that has two applicators (transplanting gel and lash fibers) which results in lengthening your original lashes more than usual mascara instantly.
Products : Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes by Younique
Review :
  • Does this product work and make your lashes longer up to 400%? Yes it does. Surprised!
  • Is it easy to use? Yes, not too bad actually. Firstly you need to apply the gel, secondly the fiber. However it takes longer time to use than normal mascara.
  • It is easy to remove.
  • Would i re-purchase again? No, i actually like this product. But if i need to spend longer time for my lash every morning i prefer putting on fake lashes instead. For daily use, a quick normal mascara is fine for me.

Photos taken by iphone5:


This is the old packaging. The new one seems better. Go check their website at Younique Cosmetics


First photo for my normal mascara, second below is using 3D Fiber Lash mascara. It built up longer as you apply as many times as you want, depending on your preference.


This is after about 3 times applying the fiber. I dont want it to get too long like spiders, but just visible enough is fine for me 🙂

Younique Mascara: Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

Adalah : Maskara dengan 2 aplikator (transplanting gel dan lash fibers) yang hasilnya bisa membuat bulu mata kamu lebih panjang dari pemakaian maskara biasa.
Produk : Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes dari Younique
Pendapat :
  • Apakah produk ini benar bisa membuat bulu mata kamu lebih panjang kata mereka hingga 400%? Ternyata benar!
  • Apakah maskara ini gampang digunakan? Menurut saya sih mudah, pertama kamu harus memakai transplanting gel-nya, setelah itu bubuhi serbuk 3D Fiber Lash nya. Itu saja. Namun kalau digunakan tiap hari untuk saya agak memakan waktu lebih dari maskara biasanya.
  • Mudah di hapus dengan air hangat.
  • Apakah saya akan membeli lagi? Tidak. Sebenarnya saya suka dengan produk ini, hanya saja untuk pemakaian tiap hari akan memakan waktu lama. Menurut saya kalau waktu yang lama lebih baik menggunakan bulu mata palsu sekalian dari pada menghabiskan waktu untuk pemakaian maskara.
