Bringing 90s Vibe To The Digital Era.

How was your New Year Eve celebration? Partying hard? Or, were you just like me, binge watching until I finally fell asleep. Whatever it is, just make sure that all the “New Year New Me” stuff is not just a one time euphoria. Make time to be grateful about everything (highs or lows) that God has allowed to happen to you in the past year, and write down every single thing that you want to see happen in the new year.

What’s more important is to actually keeping your hope alive, because you know sooner or later reality is gonna happen to you. Sometimes your plans will be delayed, postponed, or even canceled, but never stop believing that the journey of life is actually a constant road to better places.

Geesh what a long opening. I’m sorry. First post of 2018 will be about my current obsession over everything 90s. So I’m gonna compile some of my recent #OOTD photos and give you some useful tips plus what are the brands that I’ve been wearing (mostly locals). Gotta say thank you for my amazing photographers friends, Didi and Joel, who have been willing to help me in taking these ootd shots.

  1. Invest in accessory. By the way, prime colors is trending this year. Thus, the orange cap and yellow jacket.
  2. Oversized and tucked-in t-shirt is back. Balance your tee collection between the plain one and the printed one.
  3. Find something that can be your signature style. As for me, socks, apart from rounded-glasses, have been quite of my signature. I have plenty of them from any colors and patterns.
  4. Invest in basic outerwear like denim jacket and hooded pullover. Mine has a pair exaggerated sleeves that is really a head-turner. Oh, don’t forget to also invest in other basic stuff like a pair of black skinny jeans and white canvas shoes.
  5. Track pants are back. Enuff said.

Denim Day Out

What would you do on a fine Saturday afternoon? If you ask me, my answer would be taking things as easy as pie. Approaching a long weekend, a chance to have my laid back Saturday came. Another person who was up to the idea was of course HG, who is mostly keen on exploring new places rather than being at home.

After a little search, I told HG about the Wall of Africa. Located in the heart of South Jakarta, this wall was painted in late 2015 to present a positive image of Africa to the citizens of Jakarta.

It sounded like a good idea! I took my favorite denim jacket and drove to meet my fashionable buddy, HG, who was in his denim vest.

My favorite denim jacket, favorite converse, and favorite penny board.

HG’s favorite denim vest by Pull & Bear.

Unexpectedly, the wall was not as wide as we thought it would be. Unexpectedly, we found an unlocked gate to a spiral staircase that lead us to a freaking cozy rooftop! No one was there, to stop us. Honestly, it was one of my rare moments of breaking and entering. No worries, nothing was broken or stolen by us, except for these photos!

Look at the height level!

Snapchat game strong.

That day we talked for hours. It wasn’t just another talk, it was a quality talk. The one where we talked about life, the good and the bad. Bottom line, frankly, we were quite frustrated by how some of the people we know personally spend their 20s. We care about these people and we want to help them enjoy their 20s with knowing their vision, having enough courage to pursue it and balance their life. I promise, more about it on one of our blog post soon.

Good talk, good laugh.

Thank God for sunnies.

That laid back Saturday ended with a quick photo before we head back down cautiously, trying not to be spotted by anyone. Top tip, a spontaneous weekend with a good buddy get you ready for the upcoming week.

Oh and by the way, happy Chinese New Year from both of us! HG isn’t celebrating, but I am psyched to collect my red envelope!
