Majority Minority

[ thrifted flare pants - KOMONO watch - unbranded top - YRU white platform ]

Consider this as if you want to know me, coz to me, you're my virtual friends, not just readers or followers. And as you've known me, I blog to share thoughts, dreams and stories, not just commercial product advises. 

Everytime I go to another country, people often come to me and ask where do I from. They see my pale yellow skin and small rounded eyes but not sure if I'm Chinese. They see the tall nose but combined with this face, they dont have a clue what I am. Well i am a mixture of a lotta races actually. First, bloodline-wise im a chinese, indonesian, dutch mix. If i was a dog, i'll be the mongrel. My grams was half dutch married to a half chinese. They spoke the language so I know a lotta dutch folk songs from them. My dad, dint get the dutch nor chinese, he got only the native part so he looks like a Filipino i might say. And my mom, is Sumatran half chinese, so she has dark skin with small eyes. Guess that makes me quarter of everything. 

Culture-wise, i was born n early-raised in a small humble city called Sleman. Then my school time start in another small city whose people speak rude Sundanese. I was raised eating Palembang food and sweet Javanese food, so I love to eat sweet spicy food. You know, if in Western some like to dip right on to the jam jar, well my dad loves to drop the sweet soy sauce right on his finger and lick it. I know, ew. 

Then i move my ass to Jakarta, where a lot of diff culture goes together. And here i am, looking ambiguously indo-chinese. Though sometimes, i still wait for people to ask me, are you Hawaiian? :p lol (well I'm kinda obsess with hawaii)

Coz if you google Hawaiian, it says it is an island where everyone is a minority. So the majority is minority. I just love the sounds of that. :)

Until next post, toodles-doodles!

You Is Smart, You Is Kind, You Is Important

[ LOOK I'M NOT A FLUKE Chandrani Green Top - Forever21 bell bottom pants - YRU White platform ]

Hi good souls!

How things happening for you? Hope it's all always in His favor. :)

So me and the boyfie decided to take a stroll somewhere free one afternoon, I was planning to do an outfit post so I asked him to snap me some pics (as always). Then when we're about to start shooting, this baby was approaching (with his human of course) and we spent sometime playing with her. After few minutes there she goes, she sat next to me. So everybody, meet Bailey. :)

Speaking of dogs, I bet you guys already know and see a lot of posting on social media about the Yulin Festival. Gah, it makes me sick. If I can tell you right here, I was in a state of hating human when I was in junior high. So many heartless people makes me sick of other human. I can tell you on and on about this, but just like I stop that negative mind, I'd stop it right here. There's no good in hating, instead, there is always a 'change' if we, well SPEAK.

Ps: when I was a kid it was my dream becoming a president so I can kill people who torture animals. My campaign was animal rights.  (>,<)v haha

Again about the festival. I understand every culture, both savage or not, both important or not to the society, should be there so be passed down from generation to another. But I never get why human, in this 2015 year (that's a whole lotta numbers!), still being savage and not civilized like it was 2000 years ago! I could and would never justify any cruel cultural conducts to any living things. I belive there's always more civilized ways to kill. After more than 2000 years human living in this planet I believe our brains should evolve best than 2000 years ago, right?

I never get why people can be so heartless.

After joined PETA (online) in 2010, I stop myself eating four legged animals. Just because I do not agree of how they're killed to be in my plate. Just almost half year ago, I stop eating chicken as well- I saw a video on youtube about livestock farming, it's heartbreaking. All of which makes me think, I'm one of them (who cruelly killed those poor animals) if I keep on ordering them on the menu.

I am now a full pescetarian, meaning I only eat seafood (but that only fish, shrimp, squid and certain clams). I know that I will stop eating them as well in the future.

So for you who've compromising yourself to eat them animals, just let me tell you this, that stressed-killed animals would NEVER do any good to your body. No, it's not me spelling curse at you meat eaters, but I'm just saying, you can google it as well if you want, that scientifically the meat you eat will harm your body. If you ever disregard the (cruel) process, it's actually the one that will harm you in future. Cancers, tumours, cysts, people wonders where they come from. It's actually came from your doing. You are what you eat. If you eat fears and cruelty, imagine those awful things been planted to your body years after years as you eat them.

I know the food are delicious, but I think you should advance your heart before your stomach. :)

Afterall, plant eaters live longer do you know that?  ;)

Oh and I gotta tell you this! My wishlist from DressLink for this Summer (Alert: shipping cost only US$4 to Indonesia !!!!!) Click up!

Body Bully

[ H&M black wide brim hat - H&M x Coachella cropped top - H&M gypsy necklacke - FOREVER21 long gypsy necklace - CHEAP MONDAY black skinny denim (DIY-ed) - PULL&BEAR black shoe-sandals - Unbranded boho bag bought on Harajuku Japan ]

Hi lovely readers,

So I've been meaning to write a little about body bully since long time. Guess now is the time.

I'm a (soon) 27 yo girl born and live skinny my entire life. Never in my life I do food diet, and for that I feel luckier than any other girls around me. Although all I see in my eyes, all them girls are so lucky to have boobs, hip curve, and butt.

Since I was in junior high, there are two things I heard the most from people around me: "Oh God you're so skinny (making weird frown face between slightly jealous and pity, and measuring my narrow waist which just the span of their hand)", and  "Oh you're skinny! Like this! (rise up their little finger in front of my face)". Little that they know, it makes me more and more insecure of my body each time I hear that from them. I remember I always laugh when they say that kind of 'joke' statements. I refer it as joke coz at the same time they (I mean all of them) say it, they laugh.

In other hand, people are usually more sensitive to big size girls. I never hear them say to my big size friend, 'Oh God you're so fat'. Even if there're some blunt speaking people saying that to their friend, they usually make it less, well less blunt.

I know that lotsa girls would've want to have skinny body, less fat, but more on the female parts like boobs hips and butt. And we've been consumed by the perfect imagery of that 'dream body' in almost every-where. The blunt 'body labelling' in our society, makes us even more blunt to say our mind about our body and our neighbour's (friends or just random strangers) body. Makes body bullying less, obvious. Some friends comforted me that they who always mentioning how skinny I am, is the most jealous to my body. Well, I would never make peace with myself by justifying that reason.

All I'm saying is, telling people skinny is (sometimes) just as hurt as telling people fat. As long as I live, not so many people acknowledge that- their defend is that all people would like to be skinny. But tried to judge that with your honest heart, if someone say it out loud and making gesture about your bodyfigure. Try to feel both shoes. Even in Megan Trainor's famous All About That Base, she addresses one called 'skinny bitch'. Well, not every skinny girl is acting like a bitch. But that generalisation itself is actually a bully to skinny girls. That's what I thought.

Now after more than 26 years living my life, I'm fully accepting my body figure. Even though sometimes I admit that I do feel a bit insecure- like when I'm wearing bodycon dress/skirt. But most of the time, I don't care what people think, or say. As long as I feel good about my self.

But to my friends and to society, please be more sensitive about body bullying. You don't know how your short words can bring someone's down and effect their life. :)

Post Modernist Gypsy

[NEW LOOK grey top - THRIFTED vintage ombre overall skirt - THRIFTED vintage gold sling - H&M ankle boots and gold bangles - FOREVER21 thin gold necklaces ]

If gypsies' chariot is turned into mini SUV, huts into concrete walls, and long baggy drappery maxi skirt is replaced by denim, guess this is how modern gypsy would wear on her venture conquering new city.

In her passage, she'll encounter unpleasant people who despise, look down, and talk bad behind her back. Along with the triple faces pricks she'll meet in almost everywhere. 'Beware', she said into her heart.

Bringing her one and only weapon to rule her world: a smile. One wide smile is always lethal for bad-day and ugly-hearted people.

Until next post, toodles-doodles!
