Life is grey until Ocha comes along.

You’ve probably seen the bag charm and Murakami’s latest hit before around here.

But you’ve only met Ocha the pig recently through my Instagram, and he’s 100% made of love.

Be the first to hear about him, because our online boutique is coming soon. We bring you select lifestyle products (like the T-shirt above) featuring Ocha, his friends, and a whole lotta cuteness.

Stay tuned for updates ;)

We fear more than we love. We perfect ourselves more than we project ourselves. We take precautions more than we take action.



We try to build these walls around us because we’re so afraid of rejection. Of mistakes. Of the many possibilities that people will find out that we’re really puny, that we’re not as remarkable as they think.

Nota Bene




Some mothers are kissing mothers
and some are scolding mothers,
but it is love just the same, and most
mothers kiss and scold together.

(Pearl S. Buck)



Today is Mother’s Day here in Indonesia.

On the other 364 days, I often think I will never be good enough for her when in reality, she just wants me to be safe, well, and happy.

I may only count the number of times she’s kissed me with my fingers, but there have been countless days when she’s showed me she loves me in every other way.

There’s never a moment – not a minute, not a second, not even a nanosecond – that she doesn’t care.

So get this: Moms scold because they care. If they don’t, they would’ve channeled all her time and energy for something (or someone) else other than you.



Selamat Hari Ibu everyone.

Mini 100% natural haul


Ever since I adopt a 100% natural nighttime regime, I find myself spending less cash overall on beauty products. I used to always look for the next thing in the market to minimize my humongous pores, to treat my zits quickly, to make my acne scars go away for good, and to just brighten my overall complexion. But now I’m using only a handful of commercial products, and the rest is just all the good stuff from mother nature.


Over the past year since I first came across Utama Spice, I’ve grown to become completely in love with the brand. Their stuff is effective and affordable. I even took a picture at the flagship’s storefront during the oil haul in Bali. It’s one of the brands I trust, simply because all of their products contain 0% of the nasty stuff that’s always lurking in beauty products.

What makes you so magnetic to this blood-sucking pest.


Still waters, standing pots, and messy clutters are really attractive to them. So are you.


For those of you who’s had trouble sleeping, it may be for reasons similar to my case. In the past few months I’ve been doing quite well, as I can’t recall a night I’ve spent going sleepless like I did so many times last year. A large part of my insomnia stemmed from anxieties and my overthinking tendencies. Thankfully I’m all better these days.

The only sleeping problem? M-O-S-Q-U-I-T-O-E-S.

Stuff from the Mediterranean sea at Plan B


This place has been on my wish list for months, as I’ve been craving a lot of Spanish food these days.


Since Plan B is closed on Sundays, it’s gotten itself higher on my priority list. Besides, it’s one of those rare Spanish restaurants in town that are authentic – all the more reason I hesitate no more.

The only thing you need to consider to find true love



Most of us grew up with the idea that picking mates wisely means running with a comprehensive checklist whenever we’re getting to know our suitors: Good character, stable job, etc.

As a result, we build ourselves up along the way in order to meet those criteria. When we’re full-grown adults, we want to be equal to the partner we idealize in our heads.

But have you ever considered who’s going to be there when all else is gone?
