Time passes by, and I was just missed some of great review about Journ(al)ey.

So, I'm trying to turning back the time, I put some of the review here and just want to thanks for them whose already giving their review for me. I owe you so much, and I will always support all the local movement here. So, everybody... you can check their review about Journ(al)ey right from the links below :
1. Review from Mbak Tarlen a.k.a Vitarlenology.

"Belum lagi efek teh yang membuat isi halaman notebook jadi terlihat antik. Cice bilang efek teh ini, memang dibuat dengan menggunakan tetesan teh. Makin lama warnanya akan makin coklat. Garis-garisnya dan kotak-kotaknya itu beneran di garisin satu-satu sama cice.. setiap notebook jadi sangat-sangat personal."

She always be my inspiration. She's a great and inspiring woman I've ever known. She learn bookbinding and looking forward for it. She show me some of her literature collection once we have a little chit-chat. Mbak Tarlen is the founder and the organizer of Tobucil and Klabs. Her product is always developing, and her bookbinding technique is the greatest. And all I want is being just like her. Thank you a lot Mbak Tarlen!

2. Review from Tobucil Handmade

"Perjalanan, apapun itu bentuknya adalah sebuah kisah yang menarik untuk dicatat, diceritakan. Kali ini Tobucil Handmade bercakap-cakap dengan sang pejalan tangguh.  Tentu saja, bukan biro travel yang menjadi tokoh utamanya. Adalah Cice sang penggagas Journ(al)ey dengan buku- bukunya yang ciamik dengan semena-mena mengajak untuk mengembara berkeliling Indonesia…"

3. Review from Laugh On The Floor

 "Tak hanya sekedar berbisnis memproduksi notes dan bookmarks (pembatas buku), masing – masing produk dibuat secara personal melalui sentuhan gambar-gambar tangannya. Bermodalkan gemar menulis, akrab dengan kertas sejak kecil, serta demand dari kawan-kawannya,   lahirlah Journ(al)ey.."

This is the online media that really have a complete review on their website. I feel so happy that they appreciate Journ(al)ey. They're so fun and nice. They send the question via e-mail, and I'm so happy to wrote them the answer. I told them about Journ(al)ey's story, and I hope you can also read it there. I always have a thought that I want to tell about Journ(al)ey's history here in my blog, but as usual, my procrastinating behaviour always delay me *sigh* So, before I (really) will wrote it here, maybe you can check it out first, based on their review :) Thank you a lot LOTF for the interview! :D

The Place Where Fiction and Reality Mingle : A Review

Hello... it's been a long time since my last post, I'm sorry for the laziness. It's a big bunch of procrastination I have for some months back there *biggrin*

And for my first post after so long time, finally, I'm finished editing (some) of my last trip photos to Jogja (okay, it was almost a year ago- I'm sorry, again) But, this things is killing me.. I know that I have to review this great place even if I do my procrastination for the whole time. Yes, it was LIRshop! The magical shop and I'm going there when I was at Yogyakarta (yes, my fave city, you guess). I put some of my product in this shop, you may check it out if you're going to Yogya sometimes!!

As you see, it's one of the magical things at the shop ;)
The owner, Mbak Mira has been so nice to me.. I really like her, the way that she dress and the way that she manage a shop like this was so dreamy (just like her twitter name - @dreamiy) XD and she is a blogger too!! You can check her blog here to know more about her. She's inspiring me a lot, and I love to take a peek at her blog too. And I knew directly, that she was so in love with books. And it can see from many books-inspired that she applied to her shop :)

Seven Beloved Items.

I don't know why, lately I feel some kind of too serious. So, this time I decided to post something fun. This is come from Perempuan Sore. She's a broadcaster in my city, and I love how she wrote, very inspiring (you can check here) and on one afternoon, she made this kind of games that we have to take a picture of our seven beloved items, and here's mine :

 Left to right:

* It's a purple hairband, always need it, because I need it to keep my hair proper. Yes, I'm the owner of messy hair type :p
* Black Cherry Umbrella, gift from my very best friend on my birthday. I love cherry very much. And I live in the city that rain frequently

* DIY journal. What more can I say? I put all my journaling thingy here :D
* Amorito Body Shop Perfume. I just love the smell of this perfume. Sweets, and authentic. Unfortunately, this thing discontinued here in Indonesia. I keep the small amount of the liquid there. I will not use it because I'm afraid I can't find the similar fragrance anymore. :(
* My swiss army wristwatch. It's a gift from my old best friend. This item already with me for mmm.. almost 7 or 8 years. And everytime I forgot to wear this things, I always kinda confuse about time :D
* last but not least.. It's my watercolor thingy!! I can't draw anything without them. and of course the brush also. Always the same team, always put them together :)

And this is my table. This is what I see from where I sat and doing some sketch and draw, and sewing, and anything else. Kinda messy, but I love it :D
