Jakarta Fashion Week 2014

One of the biggest annual fashion events in Indonesia is back. From 19 to 25 October 2014, Jakarta Fashion Week instantly became the ‘IT’ destinations for fashion editors, blogger and fashionista.

Almost all local designers showed their collection in Fashion Tent, Senayan City. You name it, from Oscar Lawalata, Tex Saverio, Barli Asmara, Soekamto Era, Tri Handoko, Angie Blaire and designers on the rise, Peggy Hartanto. Unfortunately, Gerson could not accompany me because he was busy with all his work and deadlines.

H&M Grand Opening & VIP Night

 

Our wait is over! H & M finally opened they first outlet in Jakarta. Me and Gerson was invited to attend the grand opening event which was held at Gandaria City mall on Thursday (03/10/2013). The event was very festive with 2500 invited VIP guests, there were a lot of celebrities, fashionistas, socialites, fashion editors and well-known blogger.

The opening ceremony of the first H & M store was not just an introduction to their store, but it was also giving the invited guests a direct shopping experience. The most exciting thing was, they gave all the products a 20%! No wonder everyone was so crazy resulted in a very long queue to the cashier.

For pricing range, it seems that some of the products that H & M Indonesia offers are much lower than their outlet in Singapore. Accessories are sold at an average price of IDR 50k to IDR 200k, Sweaters are sold IDR 200k, IDR 60k for plain Tees and for the shoes the price starts from IDR 129k.

The first Indonesia H & M store is consisted of of two floors: the first floor is for the women’s collection, from accessories to office apparel. While the second floor are for children’s and men’s collection. If you want to shop, we suggest you to come during working hours to avoid the snaking queue. By the way, happy shopping!

One Week in Bali

Last week, my and my family, had our holiday in Bali. Just like other local tourists, we spent a lot of time playing water sports in Tanjung Benoa and tried some restaurants which offer Balinese cuisines.

For nearly a week, we stayed at the Royal Beach Club Hotel Seminyak. It’s surrounded by cafes, boutiques and concept stores that have unique decoration. There was also a bazaar which was held in the parking area of our hotel during our staying. Just like any other bazaar, you can find clothings, accessories and also home decoration.

To visit some beaches while you are in Bali is like a must thing to do. I visited Kuta, Petitenget, Jimbaran, Pandawa and Geger. The last two were my favorites! They have beautiful white sand and great scenery, it’s such a beauty to my eyes. The road to Pandawa beach has a lot of turn points, it became one of the perfect spot for my husband to play longboard.

On the weekend, we attended our best friend wedding, Wildan and Anya, at Sanur beach. The wedding is quite simple yet very beautiful and memorable. The decoration were all in white to match the atmosphere of the beach. One of my favorites is the hanging lanterns above the dining area. Happy wedding to Wildan and Anya!

Vintage Rockabilly Friday

Had a fun dinner last night threw by the soon to be newlyweds, Ricky and Raisa, two of my good friends. It was held in Kembang Goela, and only attended by Ricky and Raisa’s closest friends. Such an intimate night full of laughter and love.

The dress code was black and white vintage look. I decided to put a rockabilly look though to mix with the vintage dress code. Here are some photos of last night.
