Bandung, Indonesia.

This 3 days 2 nights short trip had been planned like a year ago. AirAsia went crazy selling mad cheap tickets and lead me to craziness too that I instantly bought tickets to Bandung. I told my colleague that I hate AirAsia because they charge for everything. They say their fare is cheapest but try adding baggage, meals etc, tadaaa still expensive T______T So I found the secret for real cheap one. Buy now for next year trip! LOLOL everybody already know that la you stupid Vujie.

From Miri, we took midnight flight and arrived at LCCT around 2 am. Stranded at LCCT waiting for our early flight to Bandung at 6.40 am. I was seriously tired by that time. Didn't have enough sleep because from work, went straight home to pack up things then went to airport only to find out that our flight was delayed wtf. Can't find nice spot to take a nap there some more T__T

One horrible experience at LCCT international departure. I went to one of the toilet only to find out that bowl was full of shits fml really spoiled my morning. I never knew Paleolithic still alive till that day wtf. It's so simple lah to flush after using it *sigh*

I would love to warn you that I might include all Bandung pictures in this entry. We didn't take many pictures there, we were focus on the shopping HAHA.

Beautiful scenery of clouds on morning flight to Bandung

Like pro or not?

Well, that's the only pictures from our day 1 HAHAHAHA. We dropped our luggage at the hotel (we stayed at Utari Hotel, Jalan Dago) then we went to Pasar Baru for textile shopping. They say the fabrics are mad cheap here. For me, it depends on the quality itself. But it's true that they are all up-to-date. And I think they're cheaper in Bandung compare to Malaysia. I'm not a fan of baju kurung, so I don't really know about the latest fabric and price comparison. I do know only a little bit hehehe. Two shops I would suggest here are Seroja Jaya and Vogue. Both in Lantai 2 if I'm not mistaken. Especially the Seroja Jaya. They were so kind they offered to send our stuff to the hotel because we bought in bulk and it was burdensome for us to take it ourselves.

I wanted to buy lots of fabrics for baju kurung and telekung actually, but I kinda dislike that place. Too crowded and plastic bags sellers following you nonstop *sigh* that was annoying. Even the boy at Seroja Jaya whispered to me, "Just ignore them." Smokers are everywhere even it is inside the mall, ugh I feel like dying. I can't hold it any longer and told my bf to go back hotel. Enough for Pasar Baru. We took random taxi outside and the driver charged us for F-ing Rp50,000 from Pasar Baru to Dago. I knew he took advantage of us, but I was too tired to argue T__T When I told my bf and compared the fare with the first driver who drove us to Pasar Baru, he said, "Ehh you are right..." pfffttt. I hope the driver who took advantage of us live happily :)

Redeemed our sleep for a while at hotel then went out again to factory outlets along Jalan Dago. We didn't buy anything because nothing caught our eyes (and our wallets wtf).

The next day went to Trans Studio Theme Park. My bf was not feeling well that also made this Bandung trip less fun T___T We chose to pay more for VIP tickets so we don't need to queue longer #likeaboss. It's useful if you have limited time to spend, like us HAHA.

I am as tall as fairies. Let me be fairy too!! Pink fairy if you say yes lol

Vujie Potter

HAHAHA it looks like I purposely take picture with the black shirt guy. This Dunia Lain is actually a ghost house. I knew already there will be human pretend to be ghost wearing ghost costume, come out from nowhere to make you afraid. That black shirt guy's girlfriend who sat in front of me, screamed because one of the ghost walked next to her while my bf and I laughing at the back HAHAHA.

Too bad I had ulcer on my lip that time *shit why must you come when I want to travel* and that's how I cover it lol

Cihampelas Walk. Because they say this is one of the best spot to shop. Walked along the street and felt meehh~~ what is this just like pasar. The only attractions are the figurines in front of shops. The Ciwalk mall is quiet okay lah. Only took lunch there and went to Rumah Mode at Jalan Setiabudhi. Oh wait. We also went to Toko Tiga, famous for jeans. Nothing caught our eyes too. Sigh what is this why we didn't find happiness here wtf.
This is one of the best outlets I would suggest! Clothes and bags are nice and lots of choices compare to others. Besides I would suggest The Secret, Terminal Tas, Oasis also. I didn't go to Heritage so I can't say more.

Excuse my super exhausted face -.-"

To conclude, I think Bandung is not really a place for me. I might coming back here only if I want to buy nice and cheap fabrics. The traffic is totally horror. Only Indonesians can drive well. If you give me car keys and ask me to drive there, I would die instantly wtf. I suggest to hire a driver in Bandung because it is more convenient and in my opinion, Bandung is not pedestrian friendly. Outlets are located far to each other. If you happen to go to Amanda, try their choc brownies. Very delicious I must say. 

Bandung trip ends here. I would love to blog about my Bandung hauls if I had extra time after this XD

Old-New Ash Hair

LOLOL it took me like thousand years to update my old-new hair. Okay let me explain. First, I was busy with my job right after the school break ended. Second, I was busy I went to Bandung, will update about it later which-i-am-not-sure-when wtf. Third, I'm back to school and busy again fml. You know, we're rushing now to do all the school activities before fasting month. From this week until the beginning of Ramadhan, we are all busy with camping, motivation camp, sports, etc.

Okay, straight to the point.  I decided to do my hair a week before I fly to Bandung. I was at KK so I gave a try to Patrick Salon (located at Centre Point KK) because my friend once told me this salon is really great but they're expensive T___T Nevermind. I simply put this as investment for hair wtf

Remember this pic?
Showed this pic to the hairstylist and told her I want something like this. Ash as the base and 2 tones lighter color as the ombre. I kept explaining the colors I really want and she seemed like confuse. I'm pretty sure it was actually my explanation sucks HAHAHA. Then she said, "Okay okay I know what you mean. Let me do it." Okay alright madam, I trust you, please do your best. 

Now, to the result :-

She did the ombre exactly like the picture I showed HAHAHAHA Noooooo!!! That's not 2 tones lighter. That's tooooones lighter. But The Secret taught me to always say Thank You because we never knew what the other had been through wtf so I gave big smiles and showed my happy face while deep inside I kept persuading myself it's okay I can redo it later if I'm unable to love it wtf

But still, the ash color is really great that I love it to the max I can die!

Blonde X Ash
This was how it look like after curled

Actually the colors were pretty nice, I can still pour love but I have to consider I have another about 5 months in this year to go teaching, meet the always-curious-students (one of my student asked my colleague why my hair keep changing color am I wearing wig or what HAHAHA), meet the bosses, etc. If it's November, then okay. I'll just rage wtf.

So I changed the blonde to the lighter ash color I wanted from the first place. This time, I did it at The Azores salon, Miri. He knew what I wanted and he delivered the color very well.

Filtered. Use your imagination to remove the filter wtf.

This hairstylist asked why did I chose this ash because it didn't really compliment my skin tone. It makes my skin look darker. Okay, I don't have the right answer. Nevermind. Proper make up will help wtf.

Before this, the salon I went always applied Schwarzkorf (geez so difficult to spell!). This time, they used Wella products and my hair is like old tree wtf Not smooth at all! Not sure why. Maybe the products don't have enough moisturizer in it. But they claimed Wella is the best, beat the Schwarzkorf some more. I think it didn't happen to me *sigh* Maybe it only works well with super lucky people with super healthy hair.

Ulcer came to me few days before my vacation shit me why didn't I drink enough water. It was awkward because ulcer usually attack inside your mouth, this time it attacked my lower lip, outside some more wtf So most of my vain pictures look like this, just to hide the Mr. Obvious Ulcer ;

Sorry for the wide forehead wtf

I will try to drink enough water from now on -.-

black roots go away!

Thing I hate when having dyed hair is maintaining it when black roots start showing T___T The last time I dyed my hair was before I went to Bangkok, about 3 months ago. Black roots start to show now and I now need to redo it again. Plus, I'm going to Bandung next week so I need it badly! Vacation means pictures. Pictures means pretty. Pretty means nice hair. Nice hair means no ugly roots. Get it? Get it? HAHAHA.

I don't want unnatural color like pastel pink green lilac (actually I really want to!! I wish I'm not a government slave) and I'm going for brown again because it looks natural and pretty. Something like this;

Or this;

Together with an ombre at the end like this;

Well not that blonde. I'm going for two tones lighter than base color. At least it'll look like ombre HAHA.

Now, the problem is finding a good salon in KK. I want to try White Salon (salon Maguchan went for her hair and seem like they are doing good job) but Maguchan told me they are now under construction T_____T Back in Miri, I always go to Alan Inspiration Hair Salon because I think they have good stylists even though they are expensive. I know there is Alan's branch in KK too but I want to give a try to another salon.

Will update again later when this problem solved wtf.
