Ahi Poke

I was milling around The Grand Indonesia mall here in Jakarta when I saw a sushi place called Poké Sushi. I was immediately attracted to it because I love poké! So I ordered at the counter, and they told me I would receive it in about 15 minutes. I didn't mind the wait. I had some Iced Green tea while waiting.

The 15 minutes was up, and lo and behold. My Ahi Poké arrived.
How was it? I wasn't really disappointed because I was really craving for raw fish. But having tasted poké, I think I had tasted better versions. It lacked that "kick" I'm used too. In fact, I blogged about the hubby's version eons ago right here. Maybe just follow this recipe then.

The Pink Wardrobe

My current obsession. I have been hanging out in Kemang- a suburb at the south of Jakarta, Indonesia. Along the road of Kemang Timur Raya, there is a treasure trove of old, semi decaying furniture, beautifully piled on one another. I love them all. I am so attracted to them. Especially this old pink wardrobe. This wardrobe feels so Domino. I want to buy it and fix it up- OR, I want to have it remade with new wood yet given a vintage feel. I think I have to research how to do this. In the meantime, this closet was with a pile of yet old, used, discarded furniture along the road.
I love the beehive shelf! I wonder what all the stories behind each piece of furniture is?

Casablanca Tunic

Even if I create crochet bikinis, I am not a fashionista. I do believe though that I have my own style- relaxed and casual. I don't even like designer bags because everyone I know has them! I just never run after the latest fads.

However, I do have these moments when something stylish and fashionable strikes me as inspiration. Like designer Trina Turk. I love her style. Casual Chic, up a notch. This photo, taken from the Trina Turk facebook fanpage, is of the manager of her Palm Strings Boutique, Tesha Rosenwinkel. And she's wearing this Casablanca Tunic that I would love to have. I think it's just perfect for a relaxed cocktail by the beach or by the poolside. The colors are just fantastic!

My 2011 bikinis are getting ready to be born. With the 2011 palette. And this Tunic just lit my creative fire more :) watch this space!

The Straw Trilby Hat

Perfect to keep you a tad cooler when you're under the sun! I got myself a Trilby hat just this afternoon. I always thought it was a Fedora, but apparently, the brim of a trilby is much narrower than that of a fedora.

In the past year or 2, I have seen people wearing more hats, even in places where hat wearing really isn't the norm. The straw trilby hat would be a great companion for my crochet bikinis!

The people you think who you can depend on the most are the ones who won't.
