Confessions of a Knick-Knackers

Don't let anyone tell you you're too young to accomplish something. Baby shark is still a f**k*ng shark

Hello people! It's been a while I know... again, no excuses... School and work(ssss). Yeah, most of my time is consumed by my work. No, not gonna complain... I'm a busy bee and the truth is work is the only thing that keep me sane lately. I've been working my ass off for my EN.PENS , esp this couple of month but still it's not enough. So hereby I'm sending my apologies to whoever asking for a price list request on EN.PENS email or through personal email and still not getting any reply yet (I think we left behind about 200-300 email...)  Me and my team already working like a crazy. Yes yes, I know I need more admin, but the thing is... whoever join our team is practically and automatically become our family member and just so you know, it ain't easy. When you pick a family, you keep searching that "feeling" that they are one of you and I have very limited time to do all interview and all. So again, it's me.  I have a lot of homework, I know.

And the other thing about my bag, they all handmade and like all handmade item, it takes time to make it, each one of it. One simple mistake means start from zero. Ughh.... And I don't want to force my craftsman like some oompa loompa, I want they to smiling and singing while working, I believe it add more soul to the bag. I'm a lousy boss, I know. 

Enough with all my annoying rambling. All in all I'm a very very proud momma. I know when I make it people will love it, but not as much as this, seriously. I don't even know what to say anymore. I would like to thank you all for the love for my EN.PENS bag, it means the world to me. I still remember the first time I have this idea for my bag, people keep telling me, it's impossible to make and I keep answering them with "what should I do to make it possible?" And my friend, a will always find a way.  I know I can always just take an easy road, make a simple bag with minimum risk, minimum cost (I don't have to keep make a sample again and again and again) but where's the fun? I don't want to create something that will only take 5 minutes for people to imitate. People said there's nothing new under the sun, well there is... you just need to be little crazy and play with your imagination. I have to tell you, that feeling when you see a pic of a gorgeous human being with impeccable taste strolling around the street of New York, Milan, Jakarta, Tokyo with your bag on their hand is unspeakable, moreover some of them carry it on fashion week season.

I received so many question about how to start a brand, and these people keep telling me about they dream, bla bla bla.... enough with the dream, my advice is "just start." You will fall, of course you will, but then you will also learn to get up and not to fall again, as simple as that. People also ask me do people look down on you because your age? The answer is, not all the time, but most of the time. What do you expect? Of course people will raise they eyebrows when they know they will have meeting with 17 years old, goofy, awkward clumsy girl. All I need is to prove them that I'm competent and I know what I'm doing. In just 5 minutes they will absolutely forget about my age. 

Yup, you go and tell them that baby shark is still a freakin shark. 

Last but not least, all I can say is... stay hungry, don't satisfied. Yes I keep troubling myself with my imagination and the urge to make it happen, but that's what make it fun right? 

Will left you with pic of my EN.PENS bag. Now, I'm in a way to create a new design (and somehow to make it possible to make) hehehe. Stay tune and keep watching. 

Kisses and hugs!

It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Hello all! Merry Christmas! And Happy holiday! Hope you and all of your loved one having a great time! Because I do!

Since it's holiday and holiday is just another name for "great food day everyday" I'm so proud to announce that during my holiday I was able to do another Cold Press detox day! And yes, still on top of my game it's another 3 Day Detox! YAY ME!

So, it's the same detox as the first one, you can read it here ; 3 days detox program but, I noticed some changes during my 2nd detox. It's waaaaaay easier, not 2 times easier, I can really say it's 5 times easier. I'm not craving for food or any solid food, all I can't wait is to open another Cold Press bottle. Plus I don't know it's just me or what, but they taste better than ever, my last favorite is the nutty one and for the rest I love them equally. 3 days detox feels like nothing and I know this is weird but I'm quite sad when the detox end, because I swear I feel energized and healthier and this is might be a big question everyone keep asking about "Do I lose weight?" Yup I do, I lost 2,5 kg but that's not just it everyone keep compliment my skin, they say I look glowing and healthy. I'm one of those sickly kid who always have fever, cough every month and looking pale and thankfully I'm able to keep healthy the past few months and no doctor's visit hohoho, so again, yay me!

So, to everyone... have fun, eat! But remember to keep healthy, spent some hours to exercise, drink a lot of water too! Don't be too stress, enjoy your life! Happy Holiday folks!

PS : I can't get enough of how cool Cold Press new bottle are! And bigger too! Hohoho. If you want to try you can get more info by visit their website in here - COLDPRESS WEBSITE

I was sad, but then I bought something online. I feel better now. Much better.

Busy day, super busy life… I’m basically running everyday from place to place, I believe everyone is agree 24 hours/day is not enough, not even close. Forget about 8 hours beauty sleep, I’m happy if I can get 5 hours for sleep. Plus, if you haven’t heard the traffic here in my city (Jakarta, Indonesia) is pure hell, people keep saying going to 3 places in a day is a mission impossible (unless you are using helicopter I guess). On weekend where everybody goes for relaxation or such, I on the other hand need to work, but then again malls are too crowded for my liking. I hate bumped to people over and over again, kids running around. It’s too chaotic for my chaotic mind. 

But girls need their shopping time, am I right?! Can I hear an “AYE!!” please? Hahahaha. Guilty as charged, I love to shop and I agree to everyone who says that shopping is a form of a meditation. Though I found myself not as hardcore as before, where I just buy whatever is cute in store. I’m more calm and focus now in the term of shopping (age don’t lie peeps!). Like, when I need bag… I zen myself and focus on the bag and will be home with bag only (I’m such a pro…). Wait, back to shopping story. With packed schedule, traffic jam, crowded malls and other reasons, going to malls to shop is not as fun as it used to be for me. But like I said before girls need their shopping meditation time. Aaaand this is where online shop comes in handy. I love how now most of brand have website where you buy their products online, but what I love more is online marketplace where there’s thousand of brands and you can just type things you need and they will show you many options with various model, type and price range. Bye bye time consuming shopping. 

Like the other day, I have to go for fabric hunting on weekend, it’s already Wednesday and I need to bring my small mirrorless camera and realized that I don’t have small camera bag (the one that I have is a bit too small). And bless you whoever invented online marketplace because just like that *snaps* (insert a fingers snap sound) my new cute camera bag is on it’s way. Ordered via love love love how they have huge variation for me to choose, because I don’t want my camera bag just useful it have to be cool too and I found one! Also you’ll find there will be different seller selling same items and sometimes with different price, so you have all the benefit to choose the one with lowest price (but keep in mind you also need to pay attention to seller reputation) even though you don’t need to worry much, have system where if the product you want wasn’t available they will refund your money without fuss at all. Se, it’s not a really bad day anymore right?

I’m sure by now you’re dying to see my new camera bag right? Here you go… the price is only around $ 10 me happy, me likey! Stress what stress?? Hahahaha 

I found online shopping is easy, n fuss at all, but I still receive so many questions about how to shop online, so here you go I give you a basic step by step on how to shop. 

But first lemme give you some tips, hope you'll find it useful. 

1. When shopping in online market you will find several store that sell same stuff, bring out the economist side of you and compare the price. 
2. You'll find the cheapest one, but... here's but... look carefully on their feedback score the bigger % is better. Actually bukalapak have system that will save you from bad seller but mostly the case is the store don't have it in stock. So 100% is a good sign. 
3. Read people reviews, I love how buka lapak very open on every store where we can read reviews from former shopper. 

So there's that! And here you go!
