Bali, December 2008

August 29th, 2009 by darkntwisty:hellokitty.com

I went to Bali ages ago, promised to show my friends the pics and then never got to blog about it. FYI, it was a two weeks trip. We drove from Jakarta to Bali, roughly about 1800kms, reached Bali after 9 days, and stayed there for five. Morale of my story, never. drive. to. Bali. The roads were dangerous, two-lanes (yes, no highways!), bumpy, and despite what one may assume, BMW X5 is not that great for bumpy rides. X6 is only marginally better. So, stick with Japanese car makers, at least if you want to try our insane roadtrip x)


Without further ado, I show you Bali. No narratives because I’m not feeling inspired.

Frog Pond @ a hotel in Kediri

Green green grass!
(How many of you can spot my Raul Esparza reference? Hehee :D)

Selecta. Not sure which city this was, Malang, perhaps.

I went to this resto in Yogyakarta, I think, and they had mini sharks in the aquarium. Talk about appetite killer!

Had to stay the night at Purwokerto, cuz the distance was farther than our expectation.

Bfast the next day.

Food at Yogyakarta.

@Art, this is what most Indo restaurants look like :D HUT!

: Ubud


A celebration day on our visit.

Souvenir store

Got these - frogs have been kind of an ongoing inside jokes in my family. Hah =)

I stayed at Hard Rock hotel.

Good lighting I was talking about.

Life-sized chess set!

View from the balcony

Spent my first sunset at my room.

List of the people who died in the Bali bombing.

Night view.


The late Antonio Blanco’s museum.

I had a pic taken with this grabby bird.

I looked scared.

Outside the museum. It was pretty huge and well taken care of, and the building was filled with artistic nudes, mostly portraits of Blanco’s wife. Loved the colors.

Blanco’s son (also an artist) with the President and his wife.

Michael Jackson with Blanco.


Borobudur Temple.

Sudden change of weather when we went up. Very cool.

Our tour guide ’splaining the meaning of those sculptures.

That’s fornication to you!

Stairway to heaven.

Light rain

Ones with the heads still intact.

These ones, not so lucky.



Mani-Pedi at the beach

Waiting for sunset. . .

My dad in a conversation with the tattoo guy.

Me name

Almost there!

Wait for it. . .

Keep waiting. . .

There you go! Thanks for reading!

Icon sketches :D

April 8th, 2009 by darkntwisty:hellokitty.com

Yesterday, while waiting for the technician to arrive and repair a broken switch, I sat down staring at my adorable desktop and its equally adorable icons and somehow, just got to try drawing those icons. I’m quite rusty and definitely don’t do the icon maker any justice but it doesn’t turn out half bad, I don’t think. So here it is, desktop icons and everythin’ random betwixt and between =)

Drew this one from Raindropmemory’s icon set.

Click the two piccies below to view the original size.

I don’t know why I like Photoshopping using this color so much :3


Not exactly the most creative idea ever, but that is roughly how my nails will look like t’morrow XD

They are still ladybugs today:

Aside from the random girl on the center, none of the icons belongs to me. Full credits to Raindropmemory@DA for the icons I based my drawings on and loveshugah@DA =)

On Indefinite Hiatus

March 21st, 2009 by darkntwisty:hellokitty.com

I haven’t updated in months, I’m always online only long enough to Facebook and have pretty much disappeared from the map of Sanriotown, are my reasons to put the Curious Case


On Hiatus.


There is one more entry, the long awaited Bali picspam but after that, I’ll be taking a break from blogging world. Maybe one day -preferably in near future- when I’m more settled and have life 23% figured out, I might continue this cuteness haven of a blog town.

I’ve made some great friends here, some I’d like to know more, some I’d love to keep forever and I will try keeping tabs on my dear Sanriotowners :D

P.S. ILU guys. Also, adding me on Facebook or email are the fastest ways to contact me if you wish to <3

Til later, XOXO,


pic taken by me, it matches with the new theme too :D

Piggy-shaped Baos

$10 says this is the cutest Bao you have ever seen.

I’ve been brunch-ing at this new dim sum restaurant, Dragon-i, in Damansara, Malaysia recently…

Err… Not this one. But the food there is superb, which is saying something as I’m not usually big on dim sum.

Chuu! Kissing pose version for takeaways.
