Panda Hotel (A Post for 2PM)

As a hottest (Korean Boyband's 2PM's fanbase name) when talking about Panda, I always think about Jun. K. Yeah, that cute fluffy animal is Jun. K's favorite animal. Whenever and wherever hottest is always giving him the same doll: PANDA. I bet he can open a panda museum because he has A LOT of it. XD

Actually he is not my favorite 2PM's member. My favorite is Nichkhun. But I do love him too as he is warm, funny, talented, and humble guy. I remember when I have a chance to meet 2PM in person because I attended the fanmeeting in 2011. They did a concert in Jakarta and held fan meeting. He is so humble and mistaken talking in Japanese with me, I don't know why, do I look like a Japanese? I must admit he has a charisma (every 2PM's member have charisma) that makes you can't stop watching them. But believe me, when you are in one room with all of them, you can't concentrate in one person. So if you ask the rank of my favorite 2PM's member, I'd say first would be Khun, and the second is the rest of member because I can't decided which one is better. XD

Maybe you can comment me that I am too obsessed biased with him, but believe me, I am normal than than crazy sasaeng fans. I want to talk much more about 2PM, about they skills, rumors, or even the "dirty little secret" that keeps circling in internet that only God who knew the truth. Maybe you can judge me as a delusional fans, but I've been investigating the bad rumor, and I can't stop being a hottest although they are not as saint as might be. But hey, they are human. And there is no single human is perfect and saint! But doing that would take a looooooooong post to go.
And what I want to share now is not about 2PM. Err.. well yeah you can relate it with 2PM, actually. I just read some information about a hotel in China that use Panda as their theme. I believe Jun. K would love to sleep there if they are in China. Here are some photo of the hotel:

According to local media, the hotel is the first panda-themed hotel in the world and will officially open in May with room rates from 300 ($48) to 500 yuan per night.

It is so cute, right?

Talk About Weight With @blogdokter

I am following @blogdokter in twitter. It is an account by a doctor based in Indonesia. The doctor is lived in Atambua, East Nusa Tenggara. He always give tweet about health which is so useful for us. But he always tweet in Bahasa. And not a long time ago he tweet about "WEIGHT" something that women always care of. Here it is some translation of his tweet about weight:

  • Always checking your weight is a powerful motivator to lose weight.
  • Weigh once a week will increase the 'awareness' of an increase or decrease in your weight.
  • Do not stress over the increase or decrease of weight because with hard work, losing weight must be succeed.
  • When losing weight, don't be afraid of fat. Because not all fat is your enemy to losing weight.
  • Not eating one kind of food not gonna cut off some calories you eat if you doing it with the wrong way.
  • The fact, fat is used to make you full and prolong the feel of full so it is reducing the desire to eat.
  • Of course the fat consumed are healthy fats instead of saturated fat and trans fat.
  • Our body also needs fat to function normally but of course healthy fats
  • You can find healthy fat in olive oil, fish, tahu, tempe, avocado, and nuts.
  • Drinking water before eat proved can decreasing eat overly
  • Other research said, drinking cold water without sugar can increasing the metabolism and burning more fat.
  • Don't skip eating when you are on diet, because it just make your body hungry and desire to unhealthy snacking.
  • Skip eating can make us don't have energy to exercise whereas exercise is important to losing weight.
  • The healthy cycle: breakfast - healthy snacking - lunch - healthy snacking - dinner.
  • Healthy snacking is eating fruits. Avoid eating junk food, crackers, cookies, cakes.
  • Eat slowly if you want to losing some weight, because there is a time lag between the fullness in the stomach with fullness in the brain.
  • The length of the ideal eating is 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Eating slowly led to more synchronized brain and stomach to provide information that we have full and stop eating.
  • Planning meal activity and menu make food that we eat healthier and more controlled.
  • Without good planning we are tempting to eat easy-to-get food that unhealthy
  • The easy way to planning meal in office is bring our own food from home.
That is some tweet about losing weight. You can check blogdokter's twitter in here for another health information if you speak Bahasa.

Disclaimer: He is not paying me for writing this post. It is pure because I want to share some useful information to you.

My Darling Liquid Eyeliner

My week is so exhausted. So I am starting my new semester this monday. And attending class while working as teacher is so exhausted! I wish I can balanced it out.
Well back at the review, I want to review about My Darling liquid eyeliner. I can use liquid eyeliner more easily than pencil eyeliner or gel eyeliner. Even though a lot of people said it is easier to use pencil or gel liner, I don't feel so. Maybe because as a start up, I use liquid eyeliner as my first eyeliner, so I am used to it now.
I was run out of my eyeliner, so I asked my sister to accompany me to buy the new eyeliner. I kinda want to try something new, so I asked my sister recommendation. And she recommended this eyeliner. She said from her friends, this eyeliner is a raving. I am looking for waterproof, smudgeproof, and cheap eyeliner. So I bought it.

It looks so cheap rite? I don't mind if it packaging looks cheap if the performance is good. The color is ruby-black-gold. It contain 9ml. It has POM number, so I think it is safe to use.

There is a heart shape in the cap. People said it cute, but I don't feel so.

Swatch after applying

After applying it, it shiny. But after dry, it is not shiny anymore. The black color is not intense. A bit greyish I guess.
 After dry

But it takes a loooooong time to dry. When it dries, I found it smudgeproof.

The applicator is easy to use. But I found it is too long.
 Water test

It stay still in the water as can you see. BUT....

When you rub, it is not waterproof! So beware of panda eyes! ^^

Overall I don't like this eyeliner. About the price, I think I bought it under IDR20.000 or under 2USD. It is not waterproof and the color is not intense. I regret buying it.

Btw, these days my face is breaking out a lot. I guess it is because lack of sleep and lack of water. But my dermatologist acne lotion is not working on my face anymore. So I am looking for another option. When I watching TV there is an ad about Murad Acne Complex, but when I check it on makeupalley, they said it is bad. Then I want to try tea tree line of The Body Shop. I want to try tretinoid too, but they said it is too strong. Have any of you try it? How was it is? Or you have some recommendation?

Bless Acne Liquid Foundation

Halo-halo... review yang baru nih! Kali ini mau review tentang Bless Acne Liquid Foundation. Ini merupakan liquid foundation dari line acne nya Bless.
Aku beli ini udah lama, pertama pakai nggak begitu suka, soalnya nggak tahan lama. 2 jam aja udah bikin muka ku berminyak. Akhirnya nggak pernah pakai lagi. Terus suatu hari lihat produk ini masih di kotak kosmetik dan kadaluarsanya tinggal bentar lagi. Akhirnya karena nggak mau rugi aku pakai lagi deh. Pas awal aku pakai bless ini sama bedak segala umat, bedak Marcks. Dan yang terakhir coba ini pakai Maybelline Clear Smooth Compact Powder. Dan ternyata setelah nyoba sekali lagi awet di muka aku! Dari pagi sampai sore, masih nempel di muka. Memang, masih berminyak, tapi masih kelihatan segar, nggak kucel.

 Ini dia penampakan depannya. Aku waktu itu beli yang ukuran 60 ml seharga Rp30.000an. Waktu itu beli di STAR Dept. Store Mall Kelapa Gading. Seingatku Bless ini ada 2 ukuran, yang besar sama yang kecil, aku belinya yang kecil, soalnya waktu itu juga cuma mau nyoba dulu. Kalau yang besar ukurannya 125 ml harganya sekitar Rp40.00an.
Kemasannya simpel banget dengan warna putih dan tutup yang warna ungu.

 Keterangan di belakang kemasannya:
Bless Acne Liquid Foundation adalah foundation berbentuk cair yang oil-free, mengandung formula untuk mengecilkan pori-pori dan membantu mencegah jerawat. Dapat merawat dan menyempurnakan penampilan kulit wajah yang berjerawat.
Kocok dahulu sebelum digunakan, oleskan pada wajah yang telah dibersihkan sampai membentuk lapisan tipis yang merata. Jangan digunakan untuk anak dibawah 3 tahun. Jangan digunakan pada kulit terkelupas atau teriritasi.
Water, Talc, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Zinc Oxide, Boric Acid, Titanium Dioxide, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Prophylparaben, Cl 77491, Cl 77499, Cl 77492, Parfum.

 Tutupnya model yang ulir. Aku sih mau model ulir, flip-flop, atau pump ga masalah. Tapi mungkin buat orang yang ceroboh harus hati-hati naro tutupnya, takut hilang. Hehehe...


Bisa dilihat di foto atas, teksturnya bener-bener cair. Biasanya aku pakai sekitar 5-7 tetes. Setelah itu aku "puk-puk" di wajah sampai merata pakai jari. Bless Acne Liquid Foundation ini cuma ada satu shade. Dan shadenya menurutku natural, jadi mau kulitnya putih atau tan bisa pakai ini. Lagipula pakainya nggak perlu banyak-banyak sih menurut aku.

Wajahku hanya pakai moisturizer dan lip balm. Banyak bekas jerawat disana-sini akibat tamu bulanan.

Setelah ku pakai Bless Acne Foundation. Coveragenya itu light to medium. Jadi untuk spot-spot yang perlu ditutupi bisa pakai concealer.

Tanda lahir di tanganku sebelum ditutupi foundation ini.

Tanda lahir di tanganku setelah dipakaikan foundation.

Pakai foundation ini tuh light banget, kayak nggak pakai apa-apa. Soalnya kan emang foundie ini targetnya buat orang yang berjerawat, dan orang berjerawat nggak boleh pakai foundie yang terlalu berat. Tapi kekurangannya menurutku ini comedogenic. Soalnya semenjak mulai pakai ini lagi, komedo aku mulai banyak. Yang biasanya sebulan sekali facial, perlu 2 minggu sekali facial. Kerasa banget di hidung kasarnya komedo yang menumpuk.

Tapi foundie ini awet sampai sore dan kayak nggak pakai apa-apa. Saat sore hari pulang kampus, biasanya kan udah kucel kumel banget tuh tapi ini masih kelihatan segar. Dan juga foundie ini murah banget! Kalau kamu nggak keberatan facial atau bersihin muka yang lebih intense, kamu bisa coba ini.

Repurchase? Nope. Perjalanan aku mencari foundie/bb cream yang tepat masih berlanjuut.. ^^

Hada Labo Gokujyun Lotion

Thank God it is another review! Now I am gonna review about the infamous Hada Labo. A lot of people said they love it! And what about me? Now here it is:
I bought the Indonesian version of Hada Labo. The Indonesian version is smaller than the Japanese version. But it is still from Rohto Company. It is only 100 ml but I think it is enough. I bought it in Watson a half year ago, I forget the exact. I bought around IDR20.000-IDR30.000 or about 2USD- 3USD, I forgot the exact price, forgive me pleaseeee.. ToT
Me and my sister using it daily for about 6 months yet it still about 75% remaining. Wow! You can save a lot of money by that, right?
Sorry for that brown stain in the product. It is completely not from the product itself. I bought the type for oily skin. It consist of two choices: for oily skin or for dry skin.
The packaging is quite simple as their motto is "Perfect X Simple". So nothing fancy about the packaging. There are some instruction in the back and some explanation.
And here it is the ingredients:
Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Alcohol, Glycerin, Methylparaben, Disodium Succinate, Sodium Hyaluronate, PPG-10 Methyl Glucose Ether, Succinic Acid, Hydrolized Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate.
And you can use it after washing your face, dab it to your face until evenly distributed and your skin absorb it all. I just need around five drops for a whole face and neck.

 It is a flip flop opener. Too bad the plug of mine is broken and now I must carefully try not to spill it.. :(

See? The texture is runny and it is clear like water. The effect after use this, my face become smoother and quite moisturizing. I hate moisturizer that make my face so oily. But it is not! But yeah, it doesn't last long. My face become oily 2 hours after. Yeah, I don't expect it would make my face not oily at all. But it's been be my savior these days when my face is tend to dry which is I don't know why.. ToT maybe because of the weather? But Indonesia is not like Europe or like that. Even when it is rainy season, the sun shine brightly. I can't figure it out why my face sometimes dry thought. But I guess if I can choose between dry skin or oily skin, I'd rather choose oily skin. I really hate dry skin. It makes some patches and it is itchy!
Actually, when the first time I use it, it makes me breakout. Pimples here and there. So I stop using it. But someday my face become very dry and I give it another chance. It turns out good at my face. Even after my face become normal again, which is back to oily type again, it still good in my face. Did anyone else face the same situation with me?
My sister used Wardah Whitening line before, and she kinda allergic with it, so I suggest her to use this Hada Labo and it turns out good too for her. Now she is considering to buy the whole Gokujyun line. For me I think it is so-so. Not making me breakout, but not helping my skin against oily or acne. Nothing make particular difference.
Repurchase? Maybe. Because I don't have any idea what next moisturizer I want to try. Do you have any suggestion?
