Papandayan's Trip


Sorry that I'm being hiatus lately. I decided hiatus since I was busy with my thesis thing. But actually, I finished my thesis just for a month -can you see my seriousness in making it, so I couldn't do many thing for a whole month but stayed in front of my laptop?- and Alhamdulilah I achieved a great result at my thesis. Satisfied hihihi..
After I graduated in August I flew away to Bali, being a guide for French and English tourist, especially french. Many people said that I was crazy, took a job in a city where I have nobody but myself, but I just love to challenge myself to something new, something I never done before. Live in Bali for a month is enough for me, because yes it was hard! I love whenever I worked with those tourists, I love the beach, I love the culture, but life was so much hard there, but I survived for 30 days! it was just a glimpse of life, I enjoyed every time that I was scare of the errands dogs in the street, the gossip girls in my place, the ghosts, but I didn't enjoy when the boys tease me! So many of them, I couldn't resist. So scared. So, I had to go home and had an internship in Jakarta Fashion Week 2015 as a fashion content translator. I know I'm not good at English, since I didn't use it for 5 years, even hear nor speak English, because I studied French only. But once again, I love a challenge! 

For now, I want to write about my -not a very first- hiking's experience. I went to Papandayan's Mountain in Garut, November 24-25 2014. For your information, I hate doing an exhausting activity such as sport and hiking for sure! I'm slower than a turtle and get tired easily than others, so imagine when I did hiking, trouble yes! hahahaha. But I decided to hiking because I want to be gather together again with them. My forever love. Some of us already leave Jatinangor -our university's location- I was always together with them, I really mean the word of "always" here! almost every second in Jatinangor, I spent with them, started from close my eyes until open it. It really hard to live separated from them, so much hurting me. So that's why I'll do anything even a thing that I hate to be with them even for a second. They are too precious. I've found a friend of life, thanks god!

Let's started the adventure with a selfie in pickup! Okay I want to tell you how scary our trip was. First we departed from Jatinangor to Garut by an "angkot" (public transportation) at 4 AM. First bad thing we found that the driver turn on the music very loudly, really loud until we couldn't hear our own voice, until we couldn't hear music on our earphone, whereas we need to take a rest before hiking because we didn't have an enough sleep before because the hiking preparation. We need the tranquility! hey! but, okay let's make peace, we tried to sleep. But... a worst thing happened, our car almost turned upside down! a friend of mine almost thrown from the "angkot", our hearts skipped a beat. --okay mine not really, I was really sleepy and didn't see that crazy moment haha like always-- We was almost die because that stupid driver who we knew at last that he drunk when he drove. Did I mention a limited place for us in that angkot because the biggy biggy bag we had?
We switch the transportation with this pickup to reach the starting point. We couldn't reach it by the stupid angkot because.. it just the rule of the people there. So here we were at the pickups and smile :)

 Took a photo before started to hiking. It was a weird weather, it was drizzle and then fog appeared for about 15 minutes but sun shined brightly just after. Okay, it was weird, what a quick alteration!

 We decided to hiking in the raining season. Actually I was bit scared of the cold, I can't resist it because I had a sinus, I'm really sensitive at cold, I scared of hypothermia. But once more, because of friends.. they are my first, main and only reason :') 

The mountain began with the rocky road, and then sulfur crater. It made me hard to breathing when we walked along the crater, so I had to dampen my buff (buff is something to avoid the cold, it can be use as a scarf to cover your mouth and nose and you can use it also as a headband, it very useful whenever you go hiking, you can see me and my friends use it in our head or neck in the next photo) The moist buff will help to breath easily in the sulfur crater, check!

It looks like we enjoy hiking so much. Ohhh it just an act by the way to get a good photo *oops I expose the lie* Because I was dying when we got here. Until my friend, Yurico had to pulled me up with a kind of rope hahaha. Yurico is a very good friend of mine who is really multitalented! He could be a make up artist, a stylist *a feminine activity* but also a masculine activity like sport, and hiking. And he is really good at both! And that day he was a man, helped me a lot to do this sh*t. Can I said "a lot" a million time here? because he really was. Thanks ikooo!
It's Yurico! I think I have to attached his photo with me, because he just like a hero that day. Captured this photo in front of the edelweiss's field next to our camp, I want to take a picture but he destroyed it. But it's kinda a cute photo no?
These were our tents, 10 people in these small tents? No of course, we have another big tent in front of these tent, the big tent was for the boys, the medium tent with blue, yellow and red shades for the girls, and the little one was just for the boss LOL. The boss here is our friend from another faculty in the same university, he is really strong and really experienced in hiking and also he can communicate with the "ghosts". He was the most useful guy in our team haha. Imagine, he brought two big carriers (hike big bag) and ran! He arrived at our "nest" before we did, he made the tents and also an emergency kitchen, but we? just an ordinary weak people, can be faster than him even our loads were not heavy as him hehe. And also, he could evict the ghost surrounded us, because we made so much noise and said some inappropriate words haha, sorry.. habits! So, you have to go with an expert if you want to do hiking. It really helpful for the beginners.  

It was a quite windy, gloomy, coldy day in our camp. It was so hard to cook, because the wind blew up the fire. We couldn't get a well-done rice! Even Selina and Dian cooked it for 3 hours, but the rice wasn't enough cooked even the outside is over cooked, but inside its crude. Until I and Diantina made a song because of the uncooked rice by the song of Kera Sakti, you can see the video on my instagram @fannyuniar. The stomachs scrambled hey! so we consumed the instant noodle instead for two days. We was trauma of instant noodle after. No noodle after hike, even me, I don't eat it until now, see the overwhelming-trauma here? 
The cooking team. Selina *the girl in red shirt* always be the head chief in every event, and Diantina *the girl besides Selina* always be the sous-chef. And me? the entertainer as always LOL!


Since I'm a fashion blogger.. so yeah.. OOTD :p

Thanks Papandayan Mountain, it was nice.. but I don't want repeat it hehe

You'll see who is your true friend when hiking. Go and find it :)

Bright Pastel

Hello again Bandung the lovely country ever in earth where all the best memories belongs to!
After run my life in Jakarta where the pollution, hot air, crowd, traffic, sweat! -ugh- bother me. Thanks god, I'm backkk!! life is better here, even Jatinangor it's not safe lately-if you watch the news- There's raping, mugging, kidnapping around my campus  when I'm not around here. I thought that because of my absence :p *so I'm kind of Jatinangor's guardian, if I go, there'll be a disaster lol. kidding. 
But the return means return to laptop! do the thesis. Wish me goodluck guys to graduate soon. I'm craving to wear toga someday hufff..
But I'm not ready yet leaving this small village surrounded by the mountains. I'm not ready missing my escaping place :( where should I go whenever I need to avoid the problems? 
Whatever~ do the priority first doh!
Felt so bright yet simple yesterday, so I paired my pimkie's pink cloudy shirt with my turquoise flare skirt, neon sling bag and shocking pink flat shoes from Khakikakiku. I love khakikakiku because they have colorful shoes as they collection. So me *big grin*

Colette and Lola

I need refreshing for this hectic week due to dress and shirt project assignment that I have to presented at my oral presentation tomorrow. So, I went to Colette & Lola with my friend on Tuesday. I've passed Colette before, and I'm falling in love with their interior and I wish that I could hang out here someday.
Because of my dorm is in South Jakarta, I decided to go here. *I won't go here when I stay in my house where is in farfaraway's country, I won't go anywhere actually* 
I dreamed to have a boutique like this someday. Playful, cheerful, colorful!! that's what I love  

Macaroon macaroon everywhere.. Unfortunately, I'm not a macaroon enthusiast, even when I was in France, I hadn't any appetite to try la duree *the famous macaroon

Bananina is a cake formed like a minion that I chose and Ochi prefer green tea cake which I forgot the name formed like Mike monster inc. Aaaaa supa cuteee! and delicious as well.. But I prefer the green tea cake. They don't really sweet, so I can eat it million times 

 It was so crowd since it was a holiday. I have to wait for 30 minutes to have a seat :( 
Seems everybody love Colette and Lola, their interior and also the delicious cake :9 Because everybody took photos like I did :p
I want that Lego cake as my birthday cake pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

Goes to DREAM

Hiatus for about two weeks (should it called hiatus?) because a current yet full of excitement in esmod. I have pattern design class at 1 PM from Monday to Friday , but it's like I have a class in a whole day. Quite tiring but still exciting. Actually, it's a little bit difficult. You know, counting, cutting, playing with rules...
At the first day, 21th April 2014, I went to esmod at 7 am and arrived at 10 am, damn Jakarta! it has terribly traffic jam. Then I had class at 1 PM until 4 PM and I arrived at home at 9 PM. So, I studied for 3 hours only and I wasted my time (almost 8 hours) on the way. After that I had to make my homework until 1 AM. HOSH! I will die in the end of the course.
Then, Momma let me to rent a dorm near esmod with my cousin who is student in ESMOD. I share a room with her. Thanks god, I don't have to against the traffic jam, pollution, and the hot Jakarta.
But actually living in here is quite expensive. Okay, maybe I live in a village for a long time --FYI, my campus, UNPAD located in Jatinangor, Sumedang-- where everything is cheap. Moreover, esmod  "steal* all my money *cry*. Even I don't have to pay the admission fee due to a scholarship for Ria Miranda

Ohh, ignore my gripe, please.. But, all the lesson in class given by my teacher Miss Gia is useful and quick. Miss Gia makes us "run". So we have something much after the course. And esmod has a great great greaaaaaaaaaaaaaat library. I love it shooo muchoo! I visit it before class started. It has just three book shelf, but it contains with brilliants books. All about fashion for sure.

 Do some selfies photos is not a sin though :p Selfie photo is a current trend since hollywood actors and actress did it in Oscar.Hmm, but I think everybody did self-centered photo like this since they have their first phone with camera or a camera. I don't know why it's called a new trend meanwhile we did it since a long time ago.. Sometimes is okay to be selfish! We need me time, no?

Who doesn't want this babe? Oh My God, I've been craving for it for a long time. As a new comer in fashion blogging's world, I need a make up kit for sure. 
But what I have here? I just have an eyeliner and a pink lipstick. No more makeup. I'm a pale fashion blogger ever! Ewwh! 
Actually I can't do make up well, but I told you that I'm a fast learner. I could coloring my face as well as a makeup artist *Okay, I'm just kidding here* So, I want this since naked launch their product, but it's too expensive for me :( 

So, that's why my heart beats faster when one of my fave Indonesian fashion blogger Cindy Karmoko's offer Naked 3 as her birthday giveaway. You can check it here HGM Birthday Giveaway
She always makes a cool giveaway, her gifts are always mesmerizing. Make me always joined every giveaway she made. Million times I joined her cool giveaways, but I got any of them. Null. Pity!
But I really hope I could get this one little darling.
Naked 3 would be perfect for coloring my face, complete my outfit everyday, and my blog for sure. I want to be as big as her, be a fashion blogger and a fashion designer too. What a dream!

Happy birthday for a talented fashion blogger Cindy Karmoko

Wish you a blessing birthday. Bright future as bright as your fierce hair!

ESMOD's euphoria

I've listed Friday, 4th April 2014 as one of my best day. Well, I just got back from campus that day (which held in 07:30 until 09:10) too early for study, no? Moreover, I just slept for 3 hours. Due to slept less, I decided to get some sleep again after class. When my eyes were about to close, my phone rang. And it was from Jakarta, I wonder if it was from..

Lady : "Hello, is this Fanny speaking?"
Me    : "Yup"
Lady  : "we're from Ria Miranda, calling you to inform that you're the one of the lucky girl who receive the free short course in ESMOD"

--OMG, my heart was skip a beat. My sleepiness vanish in a second--

Me : "WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTT??? WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" Oh god, I was extremely excited hear that great news.

And then, the lady explain about the program, and my chance to have an internship in their clothing line but I was overwhelm with excitement and didn't hear her explanation carefully. I ended up the phone by yelling-out-loud and made the lady giggling.
My friends around me were exciting too, but they tried to avoid me because I kept yell and hit on them because I was over excited.

Study fashion is my big dream! BIG BIG DREAM!!!!!! *sorry I have to give a point here, because this is an important thing for me* that's the reason why I made this blog too, because my friends gave me an advice if I want to apply a fashion school in France, I should have some relation into fashion as a point plus to be accepted at their campus . For example, I made my own clothing line or have a fashion blog. And I decided make something simpler, I did fashion blogging by then. Yes!  I dream about study fashion design in French, why French? because I want to explore my french's  ability there, that'll make all I've studied before worth it (FYI, Now Imma french literature student in UNPAD), the second reason: it's a fabulous country where fashion is one of their landmark, the last reason;  it's a country where people have their freedom to express themself (I mean in fashion thing) and the air and the garden are tempting me to have my lunch, read a book even study something there
 But, fashion design school is not that cheap, even less I want to study in Europe --which means I need more money for my living cost, that cost 10 times more expensive than here in Indonesia. Maybe I can't afford it, but I keep driving myself crazy by keep dreaming of it. I just want to focus on what I'm dreaming of, maybe I'm an idiotic irrational, but who care and who know my future :)

I joined a competition to win a free short course in ESMOD by Riamiranda by an information of my junior in campus. I have to sent an essay titled “How Fashion Can Change Your Life and Your Circles”, a CV, and some sketches which would make you have more point, and a coupon in Ria Miranda's book called Passhion.

And god is showing his/her/it's pomp lately--sorry, there's no gender on my god--. Two days before the announcement, I cried and tell god all my misery, and after that, Allah wipe my tears replacing with the great opportunity like this. Allah just caress me gently. 
Maybe you think that I'm too much, but, It's what I felt right now. God is too good. 
Hat - Forever 21
Top & Long skirt - Unbranded
Kimono's outer - H&M
Hologram's bag - @leecop (online shop at instagram)
Hologram's shoes - Fairy Berry

This is my little piece. Actually it isn't the design I sent to Riamiranda. Unfortunately, I didn't capture any of them, But this is one of my design, I know it an amateur's design, but I promise I'll trying my best to make it better and better.

once again, thank you very much for giving me such a big opportunity, Riamiranda! Can't wait for my class in ESMOD Jakarta in 21 April 2014! Woohoo! I can't even expect myself to study in the one of the best fashion institution's in the world! 

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” 

Keep dreaming, dreamers even in a hard condition. Just have your faith on!

Boring audition

Been so lazy to write my blog up lately. So that's why, these photos are a little bit "expired". I think they were taken about 3-4 week ago, when I accompany my friend have an audition for being a new radio's announcer in a radio based in Bandung. Sorry readers ..

I applied for this job too before with Yurico and Edo, but me and Yurico weren't called to take a further audition's steps, it means, we weren't accepted. Pity us haha. But, Edo make it!! So happy and we decided to accompany him in his audition's day.
So, here we were, waiting waiting waiting from 10AM until 6PM. However, Edo is the most tired guy that day (or maybe me?) Because I jumped here and there, yelled, sang many song, had some photo session, played basketball, disturbed my friends and attired all the people's attention by what I was did. When all my friends lose their "batteries" I still have a bunch of batteries on my body. I was too attractive when I have to wait, when I got bored, so that's why I did it hehe. Even, Edo wanted to quit the audition which had 6 steps and he has just one more step to go, but we keep encourage him to make it until it done.
Another reason, that's Edo wanted to quit in the last minute is there was so many contestant has a relation with the radio's employee but Edo. It's kinda cheating, no? Most of the contestant said "I'm the friends of X or Y or Z etc". And I saw that they weren't professional, in timing and in attitude. Imagine, there was a judge asked my friend if he has make in love before, if he's smoke, if he went to club. The questions were fu*king stupid, they just want to show that they were "nowadays guys". Sorry, but I just wanna say, the radio is not cool at all. 

Voila, borrow Yurico's vest hihihi

This is the guy, Yurico!

Hat - Forever 21
Shirt - Flea Market
Skater skirt - Online shop (I forgot where :p )
watch - Swatch
Shoes - Topshop

With these boys, I played basketball during waiting the big boss having his audition.

SELINA!! she's my photographer,! She can direct the way I pose and shot me up greatly. "Fanny, don't put your legs like that it awful! put it like this!" "Fan, hold your breath to get a flat stomach" "Fan, bla bla bla.." Yap, she's a perfect photographer for me, remembering that I'm not good enough for take a pose, and she know me best. Thanks a lot my best :)
