Akira Back brings innovation to the fusion food scene in Jakarta


These pictures have been sitting in my hard drive for months, but it’s only now that I’ve found the time to review them all. Brace yourself for some food porn ahead.


I’m sure most of you have been to the hippest restaurant in town right now, but I’m reviewing this for the purpose of bringing in the skeptics that are missing out on the good stuff at Akira Back.

6 common causes of premature wrinkles (and what you can do about it)



Believe it or not, you can see fine lines as early as in your mid-20s. You can partially blame genetics for this, but the other half of the equation lies in your daily routine.

That’s right: You may already be doing things that age you faster than your biological age, and you don’t even know it.

This or that: Printed pants


Some days your tush enjoys a good pair of skin-tight bottoms. Other days they’d rather hide under a breezier bottom.


I personally prefer a tighter fit (Srikaya Tenun pants on the left is from Back to Basics) on most occasions. But throw a comfy pair of platforms on to a relaxed fit (Zafira pants on the right is from Lazuli Sarae) and you get as much boost in style over a plain tee. I’d probably add a statement jewelry somewhere as well.

What about you? What will you be wearing more this October?

Long bottom
Slim or relaxed?

Nota Bene



I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me.
I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities.
In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.

(José Micard Teixeira)



Early in September meant a new chapter for most people, and I felt affirmed when I saw this long and inspiring quote floating around Facebook. No wonder Meryl Streep is so amazing – she lives by these words:


It’s still not too late to stop giving a fudge about things that don’t matter. Respect yo self.
