Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down

please follow my blog if you love it . and I'll follow you back : D
find out what I'm up to during the day on my Twitter @glister_blister
sooo its the holidays now . and im not really going anywhere . I just went to the autoshop to accompany my boyfriend to fix something in his car . Then we had lunch at a Dutch restaurant called Huize Trivelli (yes more bitterballens like the ones on yesterday's post!)..and I went home.

Here's what I wore . I had to take off the stockings throughout the day because it was like 38 degrees outside . and there weren't any AC at the autoshop . so yeah.. luckily the dress was very comfortable and breathable.. I finally got to wear my inVESTment piece also ! (click here for the blog post)

And guess what ? Remember that package swap I had with Valencia from Roll Up Your Sleeves ? If you're a follower of her blog (visit her if you havent ! she's freakin awesome!) then you'll notice that I've sent her the exact tie dye inVESTment piece in a blue color :) last night we were emailing each other and she told me she was gonna wear the scarf while I was also planning to wear it today (i swear this wasn't planned !) So now, we decided to do a "collaboration post" . Here's madame Valencia's beautiful take on the inVESTment piece..

Here's the all sorts of ways you can wear your scarf : )

I also happen to stumble upon this article in ELLE (UK - Dec 2009). the article was also talking about how different people have different takes on scarfs. Quite a similar thing I was doing above eigh ?? ; ) the only difference is that they're using a Hermes scarf (one total splurge I'd die to have!) Check the article shots below ! Click on it to read the tips from each person..
I planned to watch new moon today since I've heard from some of my friends that New Moon will no longer be playing after today ! they said the 'special screening will be over'.. and New Moon will be played again next month.. sadly, i couldnt get anymore tickets . all sold out :( GOD KNOWS WHY !?! Indonesia is being so weird lately.. First it was things with 2012 . Now it's New Moon too ??!

And here's my delicious lunch pictures ! Also took pictures of the restaurant's interior because I thought it was beautiful . Feels like as if I'm eating ages ago when Indonesia was conquered by the Dutch.. Oh and the restaurant's name is Huize Trivelli. It's located at central jakarta, Cideng/Tanah Abang area.. You can call them at (62-21) 3865803 :) i highly recommend this place!

some antique furniture and vintage photos
Turns out the chef of this restaurant is a 'solo chef' meaning that he cooks everything by himself. Assistants only do the chopping, washing, etc. And the owner IS the chef ! how cool is that ?

Ohhhh I'm a Taurus,what's yours ?? heeee

And yeaaa man,Honeypot is really the place to go.I do it for free though each time as I'm like their regular model for new staff in training. So I get free waxing!

I don't quite like Strip,I mean I heard from some people its more painful than Honeypot.
And I like Honeypot stuff,they're friendly.
And the lady boss,she's the nicest!
