    How to: get a new jeans in an unbelievably cheap price 


    1. Own a cool husband that knows places with cheap reasonable price but good quality (okay, number one is optional)
    2. Go to Bandung, once you get there find Unpad (Universitas Padjajaran).
    3. Once you’re within the area, find this sign board.

    4. Get inside, pick your clothing material (jeans? camoe?)
    5. Select the style you wish to have (limited to only 4 kind of style, but as long as they have boot cut and pencil, who cares, right?), pointed out your selected style to the taylor.
    6. Have the taylor measure your body.
    7. Pay (believe it or not, it’s Rp 100.000,- or less than 10 USD, including material), take the receipt.
    8. Come back the next day. Give the receipt, and this is your new pair of jeans that fit well to your body, good material, and… very cheap!

    60s is all about sex, rock&roll, mod, and what not. 

    3 years after Indonesia declared its independence, David Ogilvy in New York set up a small agency. Today after 60 years, Ogivly&Mather is one of the biggest worldwide advertising agency with strong hundreds of networks across the globe.

    In its 60th anniversary, the Jakarta office celebrated it with 60s theme. Although, come to think of it, 60 years ago is more an era of 40s instead of 60s. But maybe 60s style is considered more stylish compare to 40s, oh well…

    In an attempt to live up the party spirit, I hunted the nearest mall to see what I could get within several hours. The only thing I had in mind related to 60s/mod was Jacky O. Tough luck, especially with lebaran season coming, the easiest thing I could get was moslem (arabian) look. If only the party was in arabian theme, perhaps my life would be much easier *grmbl*.




    Other style that are ‘in’ at the moment mostly those 80s (these-will-make-you-look-pregnant-tops).I dig 80s music and toys, but never, ever, the fashion.

    Luckily then I found this “looked like it was made from wallpaper” dress. And I also found this magic thing that could make my hair pulled up in a neat bun within 5 minutes. Voila.

    I then realized that my wardrobe actually have similar pattern with the mural in creative wall. Dean took this picture and it turned out pretty funny

    It was amusing to see lots of people looking with their best effort in order to look mod. The party was, okay, too bad all the drinks was alcohol free to respect ramadhan month.

    I felt sorry I forgot to bring my camera. But then again, the facebook traffic was pretty heavy for several days after the party, filled with photos uploading, tagging, and commenting, as per usual.
