New Baby Love

Kayaknya semua wanita, apalagi yang aktif di socmed paling gak bisa lihat lipstik yang nge-hits dikit langsung deh mau juga!
Gw juga sih.. tapi cuman ikutan kalo raving-nya itu sesuatu yang affordable aja kak. Jadi kemarin pas rame soal Lime Crime, Stilla (btw, sempet nyoba stilla patina punya adek gw... njiiirrr emang deh bagus anet! moneeey please come to meeeee....) , Girlatick.. gak ikutan deh.. mahal!
Anyway, bulan lalu sempet baca review lipstick Make Over di blognya Alodita, terus sempet rame juga beauty blogger lainnya bahas ini di IG. Langsung penasaran karenakatanya nih... dengan harga 89,000 hasilnya sama kayak yang 300,000! ah macaciiiih... langsung deh cuss ke counternya Make Over di Kokas.. as expected, ludes des des! 
Akhirnya ketemu gak sengaja pas belanja mingguan di Transmart Kalimalang, SPG-nya lagi unboxing stock, langsung gw minta shade yang emang gw pengen banget, Baby Bombshell (Gara-gara gw liat temen gw (hi Marina!) cakep banget pake shade ini) . Jadi itu lipstick belom sempet mejeng di Counter langsung gw embat!
aaaand... i never went back ever since! all the good reviews are all true! Baby Bombshell ini shade pink yang agak dusty pink.. Pink soft yang bisa dipake sehari-hari, buat gw Baby bombshell ini sukses bikin wajah gw jadi cerah tanpa terlalu bright. SUKIYAKI!
Cuman packagingnya agak kurang ya seus.. asa ringkih bener deh. Semoga bentar lagi packagingnya diganti sama yang sterek dikit.

((STEREK))

meet my baby love.. BABY BOMBSHELL!

Ruci's Joint -- Senopati

There's newest joint in town! located beside Lapangan Bola Blok S, it was a gallery named Ruci's Art something now on ground floor they open a 'food court'

The vendors not as much as another joint like Food Fighters but their place is so cozy and airy without much partition.. love!

 







I came last Saturday at 11.30am and the place is practically empty. Only 1 table occupied and when we left at 12.30 there were only 3 tables occupied. Maybe its packed hours on Saturday night. Oh well, perfect for lunchdate with friends then! 

And these what we had that noon.

Ice Tea for 20K; Mineral Water for 15K
 
Umabo -- Ribs Me Up for 65K
The main reason why i want to go to Ruci's cos they have Umabo! i never went to umabo *Booo.. i know* so i really want to taste their famous Ribs Me Up bowl! consists of slow cooked short ribs, roasted eggplants, corn and top with poached egg. The ribs really tender and juicy, poached eggs also perfect. However taste-wise.. i didn't find anything special about this dish, i even couldn't finish it cos i felt bloated. Maybe it just me and my taste-bud... consider everyone seemed to love this bowl!

Umabo -- Cheeseplosion Burger for 65K
140gr Patties, double cheddar cheese with smokehouse sauce. Husband was ordering this one and satisfied with it!

Lachlan -- British Shepherd's Lasagna (Personal portion) for 55K
Lachlan sells fusion lasagna and i opted this one for my little boy. Unfortunately after 3 spoonful he refused to finish it the i took it away home and re-heat it next morning and it still delicious! practically it is your normal lasagna only they topped it with mashed potatoes and filled with carrot chunks.. shepherd's pie way! 

In the end, i really want to come back here to try another vendors.. like gelato from GGelato, japanese cheesecake from chizukek and super healthy bowl from Nebula... and another fusion lasagna of course!


Ps. all price excl. tax

Oh mother

me: aku disekolahin tinggi-tinggi susah-susah sama ayah bunda bukan buat dihina-hina kayak gini!

my mom: Bunda ngedidik kamu bukan buat menghina balik orang yang telah menghina kita. Bunda gak ngajarin kamu untuk ngomong kasar sama orang kayak gitu, walaupun dia udah nyakitin kamu sebegitunya. tunjukkin kalo kamu itu beda sama mereka!



Ya bener juga siiih....
Oh mother, i wish i have heart like yours.

Liitle Sushiya -- Tebet



Little Sushiya is the last trilogy of Frenchie and taco Cantina that i finally tried. At first i dont have any intention to try this one out cos being Tebet resident i already tried Sushi-Ya for many times yet they never impressed me and friend of mine said their menu is just the same. But Little Sushiya is so cute from the outside soooo... let's go! :D

Menu-wise is just the same with Sushi-Ya only they cut their portion into smaller one. for example fushion roll that usually 8pcs/portion here only 4pcs maybe that's why they called it Little sushiya.. smaller protion, cheaper price!
The concept is like fast food resto where you order and pay at the cashier first then they will bring your order to your table.
And the biggest difference is their interior! Sushi-Ya is like any other ordiannry sushi resto with Japanese theme but here they change it into shabby chic-y with pastel colour everywhere.


Sunbathing Sushi!

Hot Ocha for 7K


L-R : Sushi Sashimi, Sumo roll, Godzilla Roll, Chicken Donburi

Sushi Sashimi for 35K. im not recommend this one, bit fishy and i have to eat it with shoyu and lots of Wasabi.

Sumo roll for 23K. Filled with fried salmon and shrimp tempura, cream cheese, topped with sweet mayo. after one bite of this bestseller menu, now i know another difference from Sushi-Ya. Little Sushiya's rice tasted MUCH MUCH BETTER! 

Godzilla Roll for 20K. Filled with salmon tempura and cucumber topped with spicy mayo and tobiko. Not spicy at all but still tasted delish! you should try!

Mini portion of Chicken katsu Donburi for 26K. Ordered this one for Little A and he didn't like it, neither did i.

Well, as you can see their price is so affordableno wonder they are full with high schoolers! haha... if you're happen to be here only order their fushion roll!

Rabid mama blabs #1

Gara-gara baca beberapa postingan mommy bloggers soal Multiple Intelligence, gw jadi mencari-cari apasih kelebihan anak gw ketimbang anak lain.. kalo kekurangannya sih ibunya udah khatam bener ya *digigit ammar*

Kalo gw lihat sih Ammar itu anaknya sangat musikal, ada lagu dikit langsung joget, ritual abis mandi mau dipakein baju juga joget goyang pinggul (gak tau ajaran siapa inih!!), ngomong belom lancar tapi suka banget humming lagu, kalo denger lagu yang dia suka langsung teriak "Lagu Ammay!" daaan jogetnya hebring ala breakdance gitu. Kalo lagi dikelas dan cranky langsung beruah bahagia dan jejingkrakan tiap ibu guru nyetel lagu! Mungkin nanti kalo udha gedean dikit gw mau asah kemampuan musikalnya ini, kali aja ada bakat ya seus... Juilliard maybe? Jadi ibu bisa ikutan ngintil ke NY? *gak bisa gak ngayal babuk ya ini ibunya*

Terus Ammar ini suka banget main lego dan gw sering terkagum-kagum sama kemampuan dia yang ini.. secara gak ada yang ngajarin bok soalnya emak bapaknya gak ada yang suka lego.

yang ini bener-bener blown me away dan rasanya pengen pamerin keseluruh dunia! bookkk anak ogut bisa bikin lego sheriff callie lagi naik kuda!and he just 2,5 yo! Gak pake contoh... abis nonton di tv langsung ngutak-ngatik lego dan bikin ini!  hahahaha rabid amat ya gw.. plis jangan di judesin..sekali-kali aja kok bundaaaa.

"Buk... tank"

Ammar tuh fans beratnya heavy equipment dan paling kagum kalo lihat tower crane.. so this is his version of tower crane

Common Grounds -- Citywalk Sudirman



Known best for their breakfast menus and coffee, Common Grounds is one of my recommended place everytime someone asked about what good resto to go.
It located not far from Tebet but i must say their price bit pricey for breakfast so it's not a weekly breakfast spot for me.

Now, i'll review my last 2 visit there.

It just happened last week when me and husband on day off and i decided to start the day with Common Grounds.
we came around 8.30-ish and the place was almost full house, but their service still fast and attentive.

Left: Jasmine Pearl for 35K. Right: Ice peach tea for 30K
Their premium Tea selection is from Jing (have no idea what brand is that). Husband's Jasmine Pearl was so fragrant and i love it! my Peach Tea also refreshing

Croque Madame for 60K
Croque Madame consists of beef ham, swiss cheese, bechamel sauce, fried egg on sourdough. Came in big portion and it was good. Husband enjoyed it and felt so full until evening.

American Style Pancakes for 55K
Serves with butter and coffee cherry syrup which tasted exactly like maple syrup but less sweet. LOOOVEEEE their syrup! their pancakes was so fluffy and dense that i only managed to eat 1 of em. Take away the rest two and ate it next morning and yesss... still fluffy!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On November i came at brunch hour, it was weekday and the place was sooooo crowded and one of the waiter being so rude! He placed my Tea like almost slammed it on the table! le sigh. But maybe he was just so tired. Anyway, it was quick brunch i cant even enjoy my order in peace.

White Peony for 40K
Of course i chose this tea cos it has such a beautiful name! haha... even its description made you feel this tea just pop up from fairy tale book! told from the menu "White Peony picked from Tai Mu Mountain garden, Chinese white tea, composed of two leaf and bud set"
Well, too bad it just not my cup of tea, it was too bland for me.

Eggs Benedict for 75K
It's a mandatory menu for breakfast spot and for me their Eggs Benedict is good but still not memorable enough like one i had at Benedict.

Salted Caramel Bombolini
I forgot the exact price i guess its around 25K. Son love it while for me it bit too sweet.


Common Grounds used to have this extensive menus but now they cut out so many of em (including my favorite Tunisian Shakshouka) and they put their price higher but bigger in portion. Whenever you visit this spot, you have to try their breakfast burritos!
