Feeling Preppy

I like wearing boots these few days. They are just so warm and looking awesomely comfortable at the same time. So, this time, I rock my boots with my bow tie shirt and high waisted black scalloped skirt. This bow tie shirt looks really preppy. Preppy clothes always looks so sophisticated and that's why I am somehow addicted with this type of clothes.

Yes, it's the holiday season. Nobody hates holiday. It it the most exciting time in the year, especially for students. Instead of spending my time on homework, I can finally use it for the things I love to do. Due to the rainy season in here, I can't spend my holiday on swimming unfortunately. Luckily, I still have tonnes of things I can do to avoid extreme boredoms during holiday, like blogging and food hunting with my sis. 

I am curious about how you guys spend your holidays. So, please comment below! 
Happy Holiday! <3 



Love,

1900s

Hi guys!
So, my friends and I went to Tjong A Fie Mansion the other day for our travel project. Then, we went to watch Mockingjay Part 1, afterwards. This mansion is actually one of the famous heritage sites in Medan. It has been here for approximately a hundred years, since the 1900s. Yet, we had never visited this place before. From what I gathered, Tjong A Fie was a famous businessman back in the 1900s when the Dutch was colonising Indonesia. This mansion was first open publicly on 2009. Before that it was not a heritage site, but a private mansion own by Tjong A Fie's family.

I was astonished with this mansion. It has such unique and oriental architecture. Love how they locate the furnitures inside, making the interior looks so classy. I still can imagine how the mansion must have looked like at its heyday. I am always obsessed with architecture and interior. It explains why I collect and take many architectural and interior pictures. Of course, tea sets and fresh flower do attract me too.

Penang Getaway

Finally, I could enjoy a getaway because I was really sick with school and reality. I had a lot of fun with my family in Penang. Delicious hawker food, tolerable walking views, Starbucks coffee every morning, and a "uh.. oh.." moment when my sister, Evelyn & cousin, Beatrice were looking for me. 

So, I decided to not follow them to the Gurney Drive when it rained suddenly. The rain itself wasn't heavy at all, but since I got serious flu and we had a flight to take tomorrow evening, I really had to refuse to accompany them in order to not get too sick. Then, I ended up in a restaurant called Chicago alone because I was very hungry. The problem was I forgot to tell them where I would wait for them. My phone didn't have any toll left. I couldn't text or even LINE them where I am and my dinner had already come and I had no idea whether they had get back to the hotel or wandering around another place. It turned out that, my mother has been calling my phone for MANY times. My phone didn't has any signal. So, I didn't receive any phone calls either from my mother or Eve. After wandering around Chicago, Eve finally found me there. I was quite relieve tho, because I did feel a little bit like a lost kid. The weirdest part is, when I checked my camera, I saw Beatrice and Evelyn were taking a plenty of pictures when they were looking for me, except for selfies. 


I just can't resist this fluffy and cute dog sit in the front seat and looked at the street view. So, I asked my sister to take a photograph of this, since she was the one that carrying the camera. I am a sucker for cute dog.

Apparently, there was an art exhibition by The One Academy in G Hotel. This painting is my most favourite one. If I am not wrong, it is called "the memories of an old man" or "the memories". The reason why I like this painting is because, it gives me that kind of indescribable feeling about life. Below are my other favourite paintings in the exhibition.

Excuse my sick face. Despite that fact, my sister still urged me to have the mini photo shoots. 

Anyway, this military-like jacket always match with any simple outfit. It just add some level of sophistication on plain outfits. And you know how much I love comfy outfits. Well, the white shirt and the cool slit-like skirt are really comfy. You can call me weird, but I love to carry backpack whenever I travel. It is just a habit, I guess. 

I really look forward for another getaway. It is really fun. It's like a rehab from all the stress that hit you in the reality. However, whenever you are off to holiday, new or old responsibilities and tasks always attack you like a grenade when you return back. That is the most pain-in-the-ass thing of having getaway, especially when your teacher scold you and then you feel like you almost get detention. -_- 

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy it like the way Dom Perignon enjoyed champagne from the first time!

Street Style Swag




 



I was wearing: 
Bossini denim dress, Giordano shirt, Cotton On loafers

I recently find out that street style is a new and interesting to try on. Eventually, it is not as bad as I thought before. Turns out, it's comfy and fun at the same time. I should try more street style outfits next time. 
The pattern on the shirt spice up this outfit, making the denim dress looks less plain. And yes, I am in love with the bowler hat. The navy blue colour on the hat is so unique and chic. Wearing hat on relax outfit reminds me of Rachel Zoe. I love her, her fashion taste is awesome. *makes me want to watch Zoe Report* 



Love,
Jess

New York





It has been a long time I didn't touch my blog. I feel like Batman who hid for many many years in Gotham city. And, now, I have returned and why can I think of "Dark Knight Rises" now when I typed the word "returned"? ._. 

I have always been a fans of New York and Paris since I was 12, although I never visit there yet. So it explains why I was so attracted with this New York crop tee when I first saw it. 

Anyway, thanks for checking out my "oh so not awesome" blog, since I am not professional in blogging things. hehe.. Have a nice day! 



Love, 
Jess <3
