The Sky Is The Limit

The Sky is The Limit |
"The sky is only your limit if you limit yourself.
With God your life has limitless possibility."
- Shimika Bowers
The Sky is The Limit Outfit |
Was helping my friend shooting ads as soundman (or girl?) and one of the location was this sort of rooftop thingy, it was 8th floor. When we finished shooting there, the talents were taking photos so I asked them to take some pics of me too, hahaha *blogger mode on* It was shot by a quite popular photographer and taken by my friend's iphone 7+. The results are amazing for phone camera, aren't they?
I was wearing my favorite Pink Panther sweatshirt (thanks to my sis for buying it for me directly from Korea ๐Ÿ’–), new stripes trousers from Bershka, and my all time favorite sneakers from Reebok. It sure gives boyish vibe but I really love this look ;)) What do you think?

#BigDreamerInJapan 2017 // Complete Blog Posts

Hi, dreamers! I came with this idea of writing you a recap/a complete list of blog posts about my Japan trip. The reason is I want you to easily find any information/guide/inspiration you need for your own trip. Another reason is, I wrote some "work" post lately (yeah, I also need money to chase my dream so please bear with it ๐Ÿ‘) so you may find it difficult to browse each page.
Basically I will divide this post into some parts: Basic info/general and by city I've visited: Osaka, Kyoto, and Tokyo.
My 14 Days Japan Itinerary : Osaka, Kyoto, Tokyo

Meet the 1st Teh Tawar in RTP PET Bottle: Ichitan Teh Tawar!

Konnichiwa, dreamers! Life is kinda hectic lately but I honestly love it. Somehow, it feels like I'm finally living, not just exist. Problem is, when I'm busy with works, I tend to eat more than I should. I binge-eating (while binge-watching Stranger Things 2, ha!) while working in my office and also for my blog. When you eat just a little, something that doesn't even make you full, actually still high in calories and that will definitely make you bloat- especially sweet drinks. That's why even when I eat a lot, I push myself not to drink any sweet drink to balance. If I don't drink mineral water, my choice will go to plain tea. And guess what, that plain tea (or the so-called teh tawar in Bahasa) is now available in RTP PET bottle. It's a really cool idea because now I don't need to order teh tawar in restaurant (it's costed really high for some restaurant, huh!) nor make it myself (yeah, I'm that lazy a.ka. mager). 
Before we get to the product, let me tell you some benefits of Teh Tawar. Overall, drinking tea without sugar can give you a lot of positive effects to your body, such as:
☺ Helping you to lose weight
☺ A great anti-oxidant
☺ Reduce and relieving stress 
☺ Increase metabolism
☺ Maintain blood pressure
☺ and so much more.
| More about Ichitan Teh Tawar:  
Ichitan has been around for pretty long time in Indonesia and now they are selling the FIRST Teh Tawar in RTP PET bottle in Indonesia- stealing the idea of Indonesian people who love to drink tea for their meal companion. Ichitan Teh Tawar uses hand-picked of fresh organic tea buds which are less than 4 months old to reserve the best quality of anti-oxidants from Mount Patuha, Ciwidey Bandung. It's also mixed with jasmine flowers picked in the earlier morning to keep the aroma. To give you a nostalgic color and aroma of Nusantara, tea leaves and jasmine flowers are mixed trough roasting process. Moreover, this Teh Tawar uses Japanese high technology of cold aseptic filling and have no sugarno preservatives, and most important- 0 calories
As I've said above, Ichitan Teh Tawar is the first teh tawar packaged in RTP PET bottle in Indonesia, which made it really convenient to bring anywhere. The bottle itself is designed smaller in the middle for a better grip. It has strong and well-sealed cap, so it's safe to bring inside bag without spilling ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Can you see this cute indicator? The Wayang (Indonesian traditional puppets) is exhausted before drinking Ichitan Teh Tawar and become happy after finishing the drink. Okay, it's creative! 
And we finally get to the most important point, how is the taste anyway? It's taste much more better with jasmine flowers and doesn't taste bitter at all unlike the self-made teh tawar. When I first sipped the tea, I could smell the nice fragrance of jasmine flower then came the clean taste of tea. It's a nice beverage to drink after finishing the meal, especially Indonesian food. Want it to be fresher? Pour it into glass with ice! Ichitan Teh Tawar can be found in these outlets in Jabodetabek such as: Alfamidi, Lawson, Giant, and AEON for IDR 5.000 (420ml). 

Ichitan Teh Tawar is currently included in their newest campaign, "HARAP HARAP EMAS" period October 1 - December 31, 2017!! If you're lucky, there will be a notification below the bottle cap- saying you're a winner of (each) 30gr of Gold for 100 lucky winners. So, go buy your own Ichitan Teh Tawar and see if you're lucky enough to get the prize. Anyway, forgot to check mine T.T

Veet Sensitive Touch: Mastering Hollywood and Korean Brows

Last Monday I attended a 'pinky' event with Beauty Journal and Veet Sensitive Touch: "Mastering Hollywood and Korean Brows with Veet" beauty talkshow. Yeah, I don't usually attend blogger event on weekdays, but I decided to ask for permission from office. I'm glad I did tho, this event was fun and I finally met my blogger friends again after a while. It's basically a talkshow and also product demo by Ryan Ogilvy- introducing Veet Sensitive Touch electric trimmer. Want to know more about this event and the product? Keep on reading!
Veet is well-known for its hair removal cream, and now they expanded their product to this Veet Sensitive Touch Electric Trimmer, regarding of girls/women needs to appear clean and beautiful all the time- including the importance of "eyebrows on fleek" ๐Ÿ˜† This electric trimmer can be used to trim your eyebrows, underarms, to your bikini line. Interesting enough? Let's get to know more as we continue the event.
The event was opened by Editor in chief of Beauty Journal, Mira Monika. Then she welcomed Julie Estelle (as Veet Brand Ambassador) and Rachel Goddard (a popular beauty vlogger with fun personality). 
Julie Estelle shared her thoughts about Veet Sensitive Touch electric trimmer, said that it's really helpful to get nicely-trim eyebrows so she didn't need to put extra work in shaping her eyebrows. It's also really handy and easy to use, without make her skin breakout or cut. She also said that this electric trimmer is worth the price and can be used up to 2 years. So it's really a good "investment". Rachel also stated that she even used underarm-shaver for her eyebrows once ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Now thanks to Veet electric trimmer she can trim her eyebrows without hassle even when she's in a rush. This electric trimmer also easy to clean, you can clean it with water or just clean it with the brush included in the product. 
After some talks with those 2 gorgeous girls, we continued to product demo by Indonesian well-known MUA, Ryan Ogilvy. He was showing us how to use Veet Sensitive Touch electric trimmer to trim the brows into 2 styles: Korean eyebrows and Hollywood eyebrows.
Not only showed us how to trim the eyebrows, he also gave some tips and tricks about eyebrows, such as: adjust eyebrows shape with our face shape, what color to use, and he also said that he prefer not to shave all the brows off. It's better to leave some hair there. Yeah, that I agree lol.

After the talkshow and product demo finished, they announced some photo challenges winners and we also took group photos. Marissa and I needed to go to other place after the event, so we just left. Overall it was a fun event- I managed to catch up with my fellow blogger friends ๐Ÿ’–
As usual, Beauty Journal got us goodie bag to bring home and of course we got the Veet Sensitive Touch electric trimmer!
The price is around IDR 400.000 ($29.5) and you can buy it at Watson or online webstore. Also just want to give you my discount code for your purchase at Sociolla, dreamers! You can get IDR 50.000 off for mininum purchase of IDR 250.000. Just insert my code SBNLA6BR when you checkout.

Theme Parks You Should Visit (Beside Disneyland)

img source
Konnichiwa~ Kali ini aku mau ngelanjutin postingan blog untuk bulan ini, masih tentang theme park yang ada di dunia, which can be your fun travel destination. Untuk baca postingan sebelumnya, kamu bisa klik link ini: Theme Park and Shows Around the WorldNah, biasanya kalo nyebut kata "theme park", yang muncul di pikiran kita adalah Dufan, Disneyland, atau kalau nggak ya Universal Studio. Padahal, masih ada sangat banyakkk theme park di luar sana yang nggak kalah seru (oke, beberapa malah jauh lebih seru!). So, yuk kita liat beberapa theme park selain Disneyland! 
Oh iya, sebelum aku nunjukin theme parknya, fyi aja kita bisa loh pesen tiket masuk terlebih dahulu dari Indonesia. Bisa aja ngunjungin H.I.S Travel Indonesia, atau kalo mager bisa lewat H.I.S Online Booking
 | Legoland Malaysia  
Kalo kamu punya rencana untuk liburan ke Malaysia, Legoland adalah salah satu destinasi wisata Malaysia yang patut dipertimbangkan untuk dikunjungi. Legoland ini merupakan theme park internasional pertama yang dimiliki oleh Malaysia, terletak di Iskandar Puteri, Johor. Di sini, semua bentuk bangunan, permainan, dan dekorasi terbuat dari lego.... atau dibikin menyerupai lego. So, tempat wisata Malaysia yang satu ini cocok banget buat keluarga, khususnya yang bawa anak kecil, atau kita yang kangen akan masa kecil mainin lego. Psst, bisa juga kan foto-foto biar Instagram tetep up-to-date :p

 | Warner Bros Movie World Australia  
Yasss, selanjutnya untuk wisata Australia, we have this very interesting theme park called Warner Bros Movie World. Sesuai nama tempatnya, theme park yang terletak di Gold Coast, Queensland ini menyediakan berbagai atraksi, permainan, hingga pertunjukan bertema film-film Warner Bros seperti Batman, Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo, dan masih banyak lagi film-film favorit kita pas masih bocah. Permainan di theme park ini banyak lho, mulai dari yang easy-peasy hingga ekstrim seperti roller coaster. Paradenya juga merupakan salah satu atraksi yang sangat digemari. Cocok kan, buat dimasukin ke itinerary wisata Australia kamu bersama temen-temen?

 | Everland South Korea   
Who loves South Korea here??? *me me me* Sejak Kpop semakin dikenal dunia, wisata Korea juga ikut-ikutan naik daun. Selain pemandangan alam yang indah banget, kuliner juga jadi salah satu faktor yang menarik para wisatawan untuk memasukkan negara ginseng ini ke bucket list destinasi liburan mereka. Tapi di sini, kita nggak ngomongin pemandangan alam ataupun kulinernya wisata Korea, but we're gonna talk about their theme park. Theme park ini beberapa kali dijadiin lokasi syuting drama atau variety show, and you can see that it's so beautiful. Yes, it's Everland, theme park terbesar di Korea. Theme park ini terbagi dalam 8 bagian dengan tema berbeda, yaitu Global Fair (di sini ada Four Season Garden- taman dengan bunga-bunga indah dan dikelilingi bangunan Belanda), Zoo-Topia, European Adventure, Magic Land, American Adventure, Global Village, Carribeab Bay, dan Everland Speedway. So huge!
Nah, kira-kira begitulah tiga theme park selain Disneyland yang ada di dunia. Biasanya tempat wisata seperti ini bakalan rame, jadi daripada buang-buang waktu dan tenaga buat ngantri beli tiket, ada baiknya pesan tiket masuk dahulu. As I said di atas, sekarang ini udah gampang banget beli tiket masuk via traven agent, salah satunya H.I.S Travel Indonesia. Mereka nyediain berbagai tiket masuk theme park untuk mempermudah liburanmu. Tentu saja kamu juga bisa booking online di H.I.S Online Booking, Hisgo. Dan seperti biasa, jangan lupa cek Beautynesia untuk tips seputar makeup dan skincare, ya ;)

Shimokitazawa Walk // Things to Do

Things to Do in Shimokitazawa |
Before we continue to another Osaka or Kyoto posts, let's move on to Tokyo first this time! I really can't wait to share this pretty neighbourhood to you guys: Shimokitazawa. Shimokitazawa is located in Setagaya, Tokyo, a heaven for fashion, cafes, theaters, bars, and live music lovers. If you're into vintage shopping, artsy mural, instagrammable cafes and restaurants, or music, you NEED to have a walk here. Such an eyegasm I can say! Keep scrolling to know more about how to get there, what you can do/find, and what to eat in Shimokitazawa (or Shimokita). Go go! ๐Ÿ‘Š
Shimokitazawa Walk Japan |
How to get to Shimokitazawa |
 | How to get there: 
Shimokitazawa is just two stations away from Shibuya or Shinjuku, so it's not difficult to reach at all. You need to take Odakyu Line from Shinjuku or Keio Inokashira Line from Shibuya to Shimo-kitazawa Station
What you can do/find here:
Vintage Fashion Shops in Shimokitazawa |
 | Vintage/Used Fashion Stores  
When I got out from the station, I already spotted a lot of pretty used-clothing store. Your Shimokitazawa walk officially start from the second you step out of Shimo-kitazawa Station! Shimokita is really famous for their vintage/used fashion stores for both women and men, from local designer to high end brand + amazing interior. I was really amazed when I noticed there are A LOT OF stylish fashionista teenagers there. Seeing boys in group going shopping? I love it, lol. Present you the photo spam of Shimokitazawa vintage/used fashion stores. ใฉใ†ใ„ใŸใ—ใพใ—ใฆ  ;p

Flamingo Shimokitazawa |

Used Vintage Fashion in Shimokitazawa |
I really really wanted to buy something from those vintage shops, but the price is actually pretty expensive for used clothes. I need to admit that they have unique and high quality pieces, unfortunately my budget was pretty much used up. It was 2 days before my trip ended after all, hahaha.
 | Pretty Front Store  
Shimokitazawa is a heaven for pretty front store hunters around the world! Those restaurants/fashion shops did good job in decorating their front store, hands down ๐Ÿ’˜ You know what I mean right? Just strolling around and passing those pretty stores was a healing for my eyes, hahaha.

Was gonna try that pancake house, but there's long queue when I went back, so maybe next time :(
Cake Front Store in Shimokitazawa |

 | What to eat: 
Beside fashion, Shimokita also has a lot of food to offer from Japanese food to western food like Mexico or Italian cuisine, and again with pretty inrterior and exterior design ๐Ÿ’– It's a pity I didn't explore much because I was too hungry and it's super cold (I legit wore wrong outfit, cry), but I managed to search what to eat in Shimokitazawa from my phone and I decided to try Nagi ramen.
What to eat in Shimokitazawa | www.bigdreamerblog.comNagi Ramen is one of the recommended food at Shimokitazawa, I decided to try it because I haven't had any ramen in anchovy broth before. To be honest, I was about to pass this one because the anchovy smell was SO STRONG and fishy ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Then I went back again because didn't want to spend more time for searching. Let's enter the restaurant!

This ramen house is quite small, and typically Japanese restaurants, there are seats in front of the chef (?) so you can wait while watching them preparing your ramen. First, we need to order the ramen from the machine and give it to the chef. You also get free cold water here.

Nagi Ramen in Shimokitazawa |
 | How is the taste? 
It's actually yummy! It has thick anchovy broth but surprisingly not that fishy and I totally can handle it. The ramen itself is chewy and really really enjoyable. I actually think it'd be super oishii if it's spicy (typically Indonesian who loves spicy food, lol). It was getting saltier and saltier and in the end I can't handle it anymore, hahaha. Gomen ne, it's really good but getting too salty :( Maybe you should avoid putting too much pepper.
If you're not into that Nagi Ramen, Shimokitazawa actually offers a lot of nice restaurant choices. One of the famous Ichiran Ramen branch also located in Shimokita. I'd love to come back and try those food. And that kebab actually looks good tho. Now I'm drooling, cool.

Overall, it was an enjoyable walk despite the rain and cold weather + wrong outfit. How I wish I could've worn something warmer and in fit condition to explore more about this lovely neighbourhood. But sad no more, I can always be back :)) Have you heard about Shimokitazawa? What are you gonna do there? I'd love to know ๐Ÿ’– Jaa, see ya on the next post!
