Christmas 2011 Recap + NY Resolutions!

Hello, peeps! How was your Christmas??

Mine consisted of eating, shopping, going to church and museums :) here is a list of few shots from the Christmas weekend.

Actually I didn’t tell my mom that I wanted a makeup palette. But instead of UB’s Naked, I got this makeup compact from Lancome! Just as good I think :)

So here comes the interesting part.. my new year resolutions for 2012!

  • Take the Spanish DELE exam so I can put it under my resume
  • Graduate college with at least second-upper degree
  • Get a working permit and a job
  • Make more electone covers for Youtube
  • Read more books (omg this again!)
  • Control my spending and save money
  • Be more grateful of what I have (ahhem this sounds familiar)
  • Be more punctual!!!
  • Not to be overly sensitive (in general)
  • Be more patient (again, familiar)
  • Watch and listen more to Spanish/Latin entertainment
  • No more damaging my hair! Permitted for cutting and treatment only! lol
  • Tighten the relationship with my family
  • Have a trip with my bffs!!!
  • Join the charismatic group in church and get to know God better :)

Well, so far these are the things I can think of. I may or may not have more in the future :p

I still don’t have a fixed plan of how I’m gonna spend the New Years Eve. Hmmm.. what are your plans??

4 more days till 2012! (#TT69)

This TT post is the last one for this year! Crazy!!

Here I give you 2 videos that became my recent favorites on Youtube ;)

Great, great song. I think I like this one better than “Mr. Know It All”. The video is really cool too! Yay Kelly!

Anyone who knows Boyce Avenue definitely knows this song! This is the first song that Alejandro has ever written and produced. It’s been going around Youtube for years through fans’ self-created videos, but the band just released the official video last Monday. Not only that the song is the first song I knew from them, but it’s also my no.1 favorite amongst all their amazing songs!

How have you been enjoying the holidays so far???

Mine’s been pretty awesome, I guess ;)

Christmas recap post coming soon!

Feliz Navidad! (#TT68)

I got an early Christmas present last week :)

PC1441941Meeting JOE BROOKS!!!!

I look dumb in the picture with that huge grin but that shows how happy I was!

Joe Brooks, a super talented British singer-songwriter who currently resides in Los Angeles, came to Singapore last week to sing for 250 lucky fans in a small recital hall that had a fantastic acoustic. That rhymes! :p  


He was kind enough to meet each one of his fans after the concert for pictures, autographs and hugs <3 He’s such a humble and fun person. I had an amazing time!!! He said that he would come again next year! :DDD

Give a listen to his angelic voice for this Christmas song cover. Available on iTunes!!

I know that one of my Christmas wishes have already come true last week, which is great, but can I be a little more demanding since this is the holiday season?

Here’s my Christmas wishlist! :P


51ztmn4%2B1qL._SL500_AA300_Devoted by Hilary Duff (continued story of her previous book, Elixir)


P1272_heroBenefit cheek and lip stain: Benetint 

P208603_heroBenefit concealer: Erase Paste

P253113_heroBenefit eye primer: Stay Don’t Stray (since my Urban Decay primer potion hardened coz I broke the case-.-) 

P267200_heroUrban Decay’s Naked Palette (I know this ain’t new and everyone has this, but I want it so bad coz it’s got wearable daily colors. I never saw it in Singapore Sephora though..)


P296502_heroWonderstruck by Taylor Swift 

P246512_hero Marc Jacobs’ Lola

(I basically need a Sephora gift card! Haha)

Apparels: SHOES and red clothing items (I’m obsessed with red currently). I don’t have any preferences actually, although I’m super picky when it comes to clothing.

What are you most excited about for Christmas??

I guess I’m excited about pretty much everything! Hahaha. My family is coming!! :D

Oh, and by the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JoJo!! Number 21 rocks! since my bday is sept 21st ahhem..

Merry Christmas!!!

This love is ours (#TT67)

Elevator buttons in morning air
Strangers' silence makes me want to take the stairs
If you were here we'd laugh about their vacant stares
But right now my time is theirs

Seems like there's always someone who disapproves
They'll judge it like they know about me and you
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do
The jury's out, my choice is you

So don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
The stakes are high, the water's rough
But this love is ours

You never know what people have up their sleeves
Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me
Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles
But I don't care 'cause right now you're mine

And it's not theirs to speculate
If it's wrong and
Your hands are tough
But they are where mine belong and
I'll fight that doubt and give you faith
With this song for you

'Cause I love the gap between your teeth
And I love the riddles that you speak
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored
'Cause my heart is yours

I loooove this song! The lyrics are so sweet and the video perfectly complements the song. Taylor described her style in this video as “corporate not chic”, as she wanted to look as an "unattractive” girl working in a completely dull and boring office. But I think it’s just so hard and nearly impossible to try to make her look unattractive. I mean, look at her!! Plus, I think her blouse and scarf look cute on her!

I can’t believe next week is Christmas!! :D

Have a fabulous week!

#TT66: JoJo + Yellowcard


JoJo is back and better than ever! The last time I listened to her was last year from her mixtape, Can’t Take That Away From Me, that she gave away for a free download on a website called I just found out that she actually released an album in 2009, All I Want Is Everything, but I guess it lacked of publicity. Her last official album I got was The High Road in 2006! How I missed JoJo!!

I love this song!! It is the first single of her latest album, Jumping Trains (which I will get really soon). I like this style better compared to a total RnB style.

And look how matured she looks right now! I think her black hair is pretty hot for her =p

P.S Her real name is Joanna Levesque. Meaning that we have the same first name and initials! Winniiiiinggggg.

JoJo Teen Vogue 9th Annual Young Hollywood wqxcvs1mMGhl

The second song that I’ve been listening to lately is Sing For Me by Yellowcard. Just watch the video and if you don’t feel anything at all your heart is pretty much petrified.

Yellowcard Sing for Me Lyrics

I will go back to Singapore this Thursday! I will miss my bffs so much =(

Well, have a great week, everybody!

Teenage Dream: Good Charlotte

Hello, peeps!

Yes, I’ve been MIA for these past 2 weeks. It’s because I was hell busy with exams last week and right the following day after the last exam I flew home to Jakarta and here I am chilling, forgetting about school related stuff and just having a great time Winking smile

As for the matter whether I should go to the Good Charlotte’s concert or not, well, I think it’s pretty obvious by now =) YES, I EVENTUALLY WENT AND IT WAS AWESOME =D

1The concert was actually held to promote Jack Daniel’s, that’s why only 18years and above were allowed to attend this event. (One of the little things that I feel lucky to be older Smile with tongue out)

6Tats <3

2No, that wasn’t my hand.. too bad.


Benji and Joel!! HECKYEAH!

5Love your jean jacket, bruh!


I wish my best friend was there. We could sing “I Just Wanna Live” together coz that was legitimately our song! I had been missing the chances to go to GC’s concert since I was 13 and after 7 years of patience I finally could meet them in person!!!


SOOOOO worth it Winking smile

I only have a term break as “long” as 2 weeks. Well, better than nothing, right? That’s why I’m enjoying every single day of it to the maxxx!

Have a fantastic week!! Tell me how have you been doing! =)

I’m independent, I’m on my own (#TT65)

Ahhhh so many good songs this month! This is one of them.

This YouTube-born band, TeraBrite comprises Sabrina, DJ, and… well, that’s all. Yes, only two of them. Two! Dos!

DJ (the guy) basically does pretty much all the instruments and he sings too! Awesomeness! Plus, they’re dating! :P

I like her dress in this video too :3

If you like pop punk, make sure to check out their other songs!

Decisions, decisions!

I’m having a big dilemma right on whether or not I should go to Good Charlotte’s concert.


- I’m a big fan

- a rare chance (probably they will hold another concert in 5 years time)

- finally there’s someone who’s willing to go with me

- it will be on this coming Friday and the tickets are still available!


- although the early bird price is the standard price now, $100 still seems a little pricey to me, since I’ve spent mucho dinero for the past month (part of it was for Simple Plan’s January concert! Whaaaat)

- exams

- exams

- exams


I’m so confused!! Argh!! I’m planning to study as much as I could before the day. And it falls on Friday, so I think it will be fine? No? …..

Help me!!


Sincerely, indecisive Jo

I’ll cover you sleeping child (#TT64)

Mom: “When will Michael actually know how to rock? Coz he always learns to rock.”

If all the people around the world
they had a mind like yours
we'd have no fighting and no wars
there would be lasting peace on Earth


Happy birthday, Mom!!156950_124865880910076_100001599938798_150725_672388_n

Awake and Alive (#TT62)

This song is my anti-despair pill.


I'm at war with the world and they
Try to pull me into the dark
I struggle to find my faith
As I'm slippin' from your arms

It's getting harder to stay awake
And my strength is fading fast
You breathe into me at last

I'm awake I'm alive
Now I know what I believe inside
Now it's my time
I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life
here, right now
I'll stand my ground and never back down
I know what I believe inside
I'm awake and I'm alive

I'm at war with the world cause I
Ain't never gonna sell my soul
I've already made up my mind
No matter what I can't be bought or sold

When my faith is getting weak
And I feel like giving in
You breathe into me again

Waking up waking up
In the dark
I can feel you in my sleep
In your arms I feel you breathe into me
Forever hold this heart that I will give to you
Forever I will live for you

I’m so stressing out for exams! And this shall last for another month. This week I’m gonna have my music theory exam and there’s so much to memorize. Wish me luck!

In the middle of my “blah” situation, this totally cheered me up! Thanks, Bree! ;)


Also, Halloween is just around the corner!! What are you gonna be?

I’m gonna be….. nah, I’ll leave that for the next post! ;)

Have a great week!

With Ur Love (#TT61)

One of my favorite songs at the moment :)
She looks so pretty, huh? Love her simple-yet-chic style :) Here are my polyvore creations for her outfits in the video.

Cher Lloyd - With Ur Love 1.

Cher Lloyd - With Ur Love 2.

Guess what? This is the first time I actually used polyvore! I knew about it since long time ago but never really got the chance to register. So, please excuse the sloppiness :p
Hope you enjoyed the post!
