But today, I would like to have a say.

It's been almost 8 years since I started blogging and until today, I still, now and then, receive comments that question my fashion sense. Some even ridicule in the rudest way possible. I've always been amenable about these comments, in the manner of not responding back. I just delete them and don't wish to see them again. End of story.

But today, I would like to have a say.

I was looking through my blog archive, from the rather newer posts to the old ones, and I, for some reason, do not regret for the way I have been dressing. In fact, I love it. I love my fashion sense, my explosive use of colors, my clashing-hysteria of patterns. I am not sorry. Instead, I feel sorry to those who lack humor, art sense, and knowledge. Knowledge, you say? Yes. Knowledge. I mean, come on. Open up. We all live in the internet world. Google "fashion". Can't you see that the world is not as monochromatic and plain as you think or wish it is? Fashion is fun because it contains variety. From region to region, from season to season. Why is it, that when I went to UK, I saw so many girls dressed up in the way I do? And why is it, that flipping through the pages of Nylon Japan feels like going through my own fashion archive? It's because, people like me do exist. I am not alone. We exist. Some people, including me, just happen to love huge pompoms, large tutus, tacky shiny latex. Because we see beauty in them and beauty is personal. We don't poke our fingers into your always-black ensembles, do we? Why the other way around?

People, don't be such a bully. I've been trashed by many people including fashion editors here in Indonesia, but you see, your voices do not matter to me. Because I am a citizen of the world, not a citizen of your close-minded minds.

#88lovelife: SINGAPORE DONE!

Alhamdulillah. Our 2nd #88LOVELIFE Surprise Visit to Singapore was a blaaaaaaaast! I was very nervous about the event but alhamdulillah everything went very well. Venue was awesome, food was splendid. Fizah, owner of Rouse in which we had the event in, was very friendly and helpful (and pretty too!). Nina, our MC of the day who is also our Singapore distributor, was an extremely lovely person in real life. It was a good day! I didn't expect to have that many people come, buuuuuut it was full house. Thank you so much, Singapore readers! It really is awesome to see our book touching hearts to so many people one country at a time.

I would also like to thank Emina for being our sponsor, and Kitty Manu who helped preparing the deco props. Yayyyyyyyy! :)

Two Sides Of A Coin

I may, I may not succeed. But to be given the opportunity to just try is already more than enough.

Crazy Is The New Romantic

I believe that love should free you. It should give you that feeling of liberation and relief, because you know that even your darkest side is a light for someone else, and it is okay to not be okay. Love should supply you with an abundance of wild energy that keeps you crazy while everyone is plain sane. Because love gets you drunk - but weirdly, in a good way.

#HematSejam : Because Time Is Precious!

When you live a life in the super fast-paced lane yet traffic is awfully terrible, might as well make the best use of delivery service, yes? :)

I love shopping online because, well, you get to shop from so many choices of brands by only a few clicks away at the comfort of your work and or home. Same goes to food. You know, because going to a restaurant can take ages sometimes and within those hours, you could have done something better.

For those who embrace the food delivery service,  Food Panda is and will definitely be your best friend. You get to order your favorite restaurant dishes and have them delivered to your doorstep instead - through an app!

You see, you get to save 1 hour (or more) by ordering food through such services. Now, what will you do with that additional super precious 1 hour in your life? Oh we're getting deep aren't we.

But seriously, how would you spend that 1 additional hour of yours? Share your thoughts on Instagram by using the hashtag #HematSejam and mentioning @FoodPanda_ID and you can win an iPhone 6!

Also, if you wanna order food from Food Panda, do use the voucher code DIANAPANDA to get Rp.30.000 DISCOUNT.

Yay! :)
