June Photo Diary

Last week, my parents and I went to Jakarta again to celebrate my mom's bday and their wedding anniversary on Monday. On this post, I'm going to share you my outfits, my meals, and my selfies from this week! ;)

On Sunday evening , we went to have dinner at Nam Nam Noodle Bar at Pantai Indah Kapuk. My parents love Pho so much!

Right: Chilled dried longan, lotus seeds, water chestnut, seawood dessert

Pho Wagyu Beef Slices
 The wagyu beef was so tender and yummy! For the soup, it's the best pho I've ever tried in Jakarta. It's so rich in flavor unlike the other pho that only has salty flavor in it.

Untitled

Vanilla pudding, palm sugar caramel
The texture was nice but it's too sweet.

On June 8th, we had dinner at Ocha & Bella (located inside Morissey Hotel).

Untitled

The food was okay and here's what I had; Grilled norwegian salmon with vegetables. Quite delicious but it's too oily :(

Untitled

There are many beautiful spots inside the hotel so I couldn't resist to snap some photos!

Few days after I went to Plaza Senayan because I was craving for Genki Sushi. It's a Japanese restaurant that serves the food using a 'mini bullet train' (unlike others that use a conveyor). You only need to order the food through an iPad and the food will arrive at the side of your table. It's an unique concept yet the food there will also satisfy your tongue :)

Look at my new gel nail art! My brother's girlfriend introduced me to Nail Story Studio which's located at PIK. I am very satisfied with the result!! Not to mention, the salon was sooooo pretttyyy with vintage & shabby chic ambience !!

Catching up with Julian and Fhenny! Had a fun karaoke session too :)

On Friday my dad asked us to go to Mazda's test drive event. I am moving to Jakarta soon so I need a car to go around. It's my first time joining such an event because usually I'm totally not interested with something like this. My dad and my bro are a big fan of cars yet if you ask me to differentiate similar cars with same color but from different brand, I have zero knowledge to do it . lol.


Since the event was in GBK, we decided to have lunch at a nearby place; Unacho, Plaza Senayan.

Check my instagram @verenleecious for outfit details!!

I first knew this place through instagram. My dad loves unagi so much so I was eager to go to this place and let him try this special charcoal grilled eel. This menu is called Hitsumabushi. You can enjoy this meal in 3 ways. The first one is to enjoy as it is, the second one is to add seasonings (roasted seaweeds, chopped green onions, wasabi, chilli powder, etc), and the third one is add the broth! I love the 3rd way the most :).

After having lunch, we moved to TWG Tea Boutique and Salon.

Untitled

Tried their Pink Flamingo Iced Tea and Gyokuro Samurai Green Tea. Both were sooo special~~~

Untitled

It's such a beautiful place so lots of photos were taken ;p

Pontianak Video Diary

Hello everyone! As some of you might already know, last month I and my friends went to Pontianak for 4 days and 3 nights for a culinary trip! My parents are both from Pontianak and my friends were always curious to try the famous food places there. So, I decided to arrange this trip and with the help of my cousins Ryan & Derick, we successfully had more than 16 meals in 4 days xP. My friend who joined this trip were Nadia (her parents are from Pontianak too), Nicyela (her dad is from Ketapang, also a city in West Borneo), Yan, Jordan, and Sarah. 

Here's a recap of our holiday ! Don't forget to give the video a thumbs up! :)

Hello Hair Hydrating Mask Review

IMG_0076

About 1,5 month ago I dyed my hair. I had always wanted to dye my hair, so I did it although I knew it'd damage my hair. Now, my hair is really dry! When I wash it with a wrong shampoo, my hair would be even worse and get tangled. I don't want my hair to be damaged, so doing treatment for my hair as a new routine is a must for me. I don't have to go to the salon because nowadays I'm using this HELLO HAIR HYDRATING MASK that I got from @Benscrub. It's very easy to use this mask.

IMG_0086 2

Product Description:
Hello Hair Hydrating Mask is packed full of 100% natural ingredients.
It's an oil treatment enginereed to repair and revitalize dry hair. So say goodbye to the crazy chemical compounds that exist in commercial hair care products, and hello to hair that is healthier, naturally!

 What's Inside & The Benefits:
  • Coconut Oil helps recover damaged hair; adding luster, shine and softness to dry and stressed out hair. By preventing hair breakage and split ends, you'll be helping your hair to grow and grow and grow! Hello Hair uses 100% virgin organic Coconut oil.

    Almond Oil is abundantly rich in vitamins and minerals, and has been used for centuries to add shine to hair and boost strength. It's high level of protein and Vitamin E makes it perfect for hair growth and preventing greying and hair loss.

    Argan Oil hydrates hair, making it great for controlling manes that are unruly and damaged. It is also packed with Vitamin E and natural anti-oxidants which are real hair pleasers.

    Olive Oil loves to smooth split ends, reduce static, control dandruff and smooth the hair cuticle; making it a welcome ingredient to improve the overall health of your hair and scalp.

    Olive Leaf Extract is anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial by nature. The olive leaf extract in Hello Hair is extremely rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals; so it repairs, strengthens, hydrates and protects your hair.

    Castor Oil 
    is a great source of omega-9 fatty acids, which benefit the roots and scalp by preventing drying of the hair. Hair growth is the obvious result of hydrating your hair with ingredients like Castor Oil.

How to apply the hairmask:
Appy to dry hair. Massage into scalp and all the way to the ends. Leave in for 30 minutes, or longer if desired. To boost hydrating effects, wrap your hair in a towel or cling wrap. Then, you can wash hair as normal :)

For a deeper treatment, apply Hello Hair before going to bed. Please note that you will need to cover your pillow with a towel, to ensure no oils leak through your pillowcase!

MY REVIEW:
  • This was my first experience using an oil-based hairmask, so at first I thought it's going to be so sticky / make my hair become oily instead. But when I started applying it on my dry hair, it's totally not like what I expected. It's easier to apply than 'conditioner-like' hairmask. I apply more on the end of my hair since it's the part where I used straightener the most. 
  • It smells good, something like coconut's smell!
  • 1 package can be used twice for my medium-length hair.
  •  Once I washed my hair, my hair became softer, tangle-free, and less dry ! (on the first try)
  • I believe that after using this mask regularly, my hair will become healthy!

NO FILTER NO EDIT!
The conclusion is I recommend this product to those who have same hair problem like me (split ends, dry, damaged hair), want an all natural ingredients, environment friendly, and cruel-free hairmask, and don't like a hairmask with a strong scent. It can also be used if you want to speed up your hair growth (read the 'What's inside' - Castor oil part above)

It's an Australian product, and in Indonesia you can only get it from @benscrub.
