Note: How are you doing with your resolutions? It’s the end of January already, and honestly, I didn’t keep a checklist of resolutions. I have a lot of little tweaks I want to make though, and one of those adjustments is that I’m resolving to relate more to you as a blogger. There are many more little changes about blogging that I’m consciously making, but we’ll see for ourselves how will Stillwater have evolved itself by the end of 2015. In the meantime, here are some cool finds of the net I’ve discovered and bookmarked throughout the month. Happy reading!
1. How exercise keeps us young. [NYTimes WELL]
… very young indeed.
2. The ultimate guide to good skin. [Harper’s Bazaar]
It’s not just about products.
3. Timeline: The development of ramen. [Lucky Peach]
Guess who invented noodles first: Japanese, Chinese, or Koreans?
4. Infographic: Daily routines of world’s most creative people. [Info We Trust]
Apparently, Victor Hugo goes to the barber everyday.
5. How to be the perfect woman. [Medium]
Def worth a read.

So here’s another new establishment in PIK (it’s getting endless).
By its exterior and general impression on its recent buzz, Belly Inc doesn’t exactly hold the top spot on my list. As with plenty of other eateries around the area, you can sit down and have a proper meal without dressing up or paying much. Little did I know that something so casual is worth the drive, especially when you’re starving on weeknights.
Have you been to Doraemon’s Secret Gadgets Expo? I’ve only been there recently, and it’s the perfect time to go.
Hey guys! It’s been a helluva ride in the past few days for me. If you follow me on social media, you may already know that I’m recently engaged :) THANK YOU for the prayers and congratulations <3
This post is going to be really long (you’ve been warned), and it’ll partially be about how he did it, partially about the stops we made throughout our 3-day-2-night getaway to Bandung. You may skip right ahead to part deux: the places we went, but you can also read from the beginning till the end. Hopefully between my wordiness you’ll find inspiration from the cusp of our 3-year-7-month journey together. As to why I’m blogging about it, it’s because this is an important chapter of
my our life that I want to keep alive forever :)
Speak in statements instead of apologetic questions. No one wants to go to a doctor who says, “I’m going to be your surgeon? I’m here to talk to you about your procedure? I was first in my class at Johns Hopkins, so?” Make statements, with your actions and your voice.

Recently, I had an interesting discussion with a friend about the character we liked most on SATC and who ended up the happiest. This is a guy friend who suggested my boyfriend to watch the hit series: “If you want to understand women, go watch Sex And The City.”
Late last month, I was invited to a casual tasting sesh at one of the hottest place to get seafood in town, Cajun Claws.
Thing is, it’s not just any old seafood. You’ve seen emulations of crab shacks in town already such as Holy Crab, Cut the Crab, and Mr. Crabby. But this is Princess Tiana with a whole lot of knife-edged claws. As the founders emphasized, “We’re not selling presentation here. We aim to give you a taste of Louisiana.” And they did.
The E-Myth Enterprise by Michael E. Gerber, page 94
“There is something else about E-Myth Enterprises that endow them with such a tangible difference. And it is that these businesses, these E-Myth Enterprises, are created, not by businesspeople, not by so-called entrepreneurs, but – and there is no other way to say it – by children.
These E-Myth Enterprises are created by the youngest part of us, not the most adult.
They are created by that part of us that believes it has the right to expect the world to change, to give us everything we want, exactly as we imagine it.
Not the methodical part, the dependable part, the reliable part, the responsible part, the grown-up in us all, the part one expects the manager to play.
Not the adult who has learned to limit his or her expectations, but the child who wants it all.”

If you know me IRL and/or follow me on social media, you know I’m nuts about pigs. There were times I shrieked myself to tears when I see a cute pig photo floating around the web or ones that got sent to me from my friends.
For someone who’s easily stressed out, it’s a major therapy to double-tap my way through these Instagram feeds. So whether you’re a dog person or a cat person (I’m a dog~), I want to share the piggy love on this post. Hopefully the babes will lift you up in this midday slump #seriouslytoocute:
P.S. Do you know where to find micropig breeders in Indonesia? If you do please, please, please, please, pretty please let me know. I’ve been looking for one since forever.
