Walk Through the Light

This is one of my Bali outfit posts, actually I wore this outfit right after me and my friends spent our time at Dreamland (the activity post will be uploaded later), but I took these pictures on the other day when the sun still shines brightly, which is my favorite time to capture photos of my outfit!

And the results are LOVEEEEE!! Thanks to the sweet location and the photographer! ;)

Look at that fresh blue sky! I can't believe Jakarta and Bali belong to the same country.

Forever21 top and bracelet.

My new sandals from Payless! You can visit the store at Central Park Mall, the store layout may not be pretty but they do have some cute and relatively cheap footwear.

Dreamland, Bali

Due to the massive amount of pictures I took in Bali, I decided to upload them separately.
The first part (this one you're reading at) is when my friends and I went to Dreamland on the 2nd day of my trip, the day that has successfully burned my skin.


Snapped a picture as soon as we arrived at the beach, before our hair got messed up.

My favorite picture of Olive ♥

Wtf my lips look swollen after eating jagung bakar. It tasted real good though -salty and spicy!

Mbok2 at Dreamland are VERY persistent at giving you a massage!
After finished sun-bathing for about 3 hours, we decided to take pictures again!! (Olive was still enjoying her massage behind)

Freaking love the sea color!!
Our last picture at Dreamland♥ We took off at 3-4pm when the beach got crowded.

I wish Jakarta had a beach like this.

Hottie detected!!

Here's a lovely picture to end the entry. Have a fab weekend everyone!! :)

Mustard Pants

GOWIGASA Top and Mustard Pants (New Arrival!)
I think that was the first time I went to the cooking section... and only for posing.
Fyi, Jess bought that vintage necklace from her friend for IDR 20K only!!

The pants come in three colors, as you can see from my previous post here, that's the soft pink color.
My fave shoes at the moment from BERSHKA!


Anyway, I was interviewed a couple days ago by Hessel, the girl behind EYE BREATHE FASHION :

Floating on a Sunny Day

Before I went to Bali last week, one of my favorite Lookbookers (Johanne) asked me if I was interested to participate a picture collaboration with some other amazing LBers for fun. The idea is doing a flying-effect-picture like jumping or doing 'fake-levitation'. I was instantly EXCITED because this is my first levitation picture ever, but the problem was... the deadline. They wanted it to be uploaded on Sunday (24/07) whereas that was the day I went home from Bali. So, I decided to post my look today!! Hope you enjoy it and maybe you can try it too! ;)

The details ♥

Here are some incredible levitation photos on lookbook.nu:
Clockwise: Anna W, Kani, Cathie N, Johanne D, Anastasia S, Any T, Bobby R, and the KING of levitation pictures, Mike Quyen!


What I Wore:
Shoes - Bershka
Yellow Pleated Top - Shanghai
Shorts - H&M

Location: Ayana Hotel, Bali

Hi, my name is Jessica. I am majoring in Visual Communication / Graphic Design - Animation at Bina Nusantara University (BINUS). I am currently in my last semester, working my ass off to graduate.

Some of you might already know that some university majors like Visual Communication / Graphic Design, Architecture, Fashion Design, Interior Design, etc require a Final Project completed independently by the student under the lecturer's guidance, in order for them to graduate. Now what exactly is, this final project thingy? It's kinda like a final exam, but you've got to work on it for the whole semester. In my major, Visual Communication / Graphic Design - Animation, student has to create an animated movie, choosing one of these options: Short Movie, TV Series, E-Learning, Documentary or Public Service Ad (like mine!)

At the end of the semester, you've got to present the result of your project in a display / campaign form, make a presentation about it, answer some questions from the lecturers regarding your work, and then wait outside the classrooms with your friends; letting all the lecturers gather together, calculating your scores from the very beginning of the semester to this Judgement Day. Then at the end of the day, the final score will be passed to you (in person) by the lecturers. THAT final score decides whether you graduate or not.

July 13th 2011
Before the Judgement Day, they give you one whole day (well not necessarily 'whole', actually, it's 09 AM-07 PM) to build your display up in some provided classrooms; there will be each 5-8 students per room. As we don't have to do this one by ourselves, I asked my helpful/multitalented/handsome driver to help me and he did! Lookie here:

I'm so grateful for his presence, such a big help! He placed all those fabrics neatly and so I could place all the details and gimmicks by myself hehe.

And........ TADAH! Here's how my display look by the end of the day, including all the details ;D

The Cloudy Macbook -in which I'll play my movie during the presentation! Thanks to my brother who let me 'accessorize' this, lol.

Those are free hotel toothbrushes, by the way.
July 14th 2011
The Judgement Day had finally came. Let's see... Campaign display - check! Presentation speech - check! Black & white formal attire - check! Oh, here's mine, btw ;)

The presentation was done privately in front of two lecturers before the movie was finally shown. Here's my cheat sheet :b
Kecap, Kecap...
Though the lecturers said they are *hehe* impressed with my work and presentation, they said I should have made a Powerpoint slide for the presentation to make an even better impression, because I'm a Visual Communication / Graphic Design student and right here, a verbal skill, no matter how good it is, isn't appreciated as much as a visualization skill. Note it, juniors. Haha..

So basically, my Final Project is an animated Public Service Ad (PSA) with target audience mainly being kids 5-8 years of age. The title is 'Gosok Gigi - Habis Sarapan, Sebelum Tidur'. It is made to motivate children to brush their teeth regularly twice a day; after breakfast and before bed. Here's the movie :D
All four characters' voices are mine, by the way! Hahaha, I remember when I was a kid, being a Voice Actress was one of my dream. Now thanks to this Final Project, I did it! ;D

It was 03 PM by the time I finished doing my presentation and apparently, I was the last one. After waiting for about 2 hours, the lecturers came out and ask all of us students to gather inside a classroom.
 The (nervous) Crowd

After all of us were there, the Head of Visual Communication Design Department; Dra. Mita Purbasari, MFA gave us a brief speech before she -and the other lecturers- started passing out those folded tiny papers written with each of our names outside AND our final scores inside. When your name is called, you must immediately receive the paper and leave the room without peeking the score (you should see it outside the room so there would be no fuss, I guess). Mrs Mita started calling out some names before her papers run out...

And then the next lecturer called out some names too, and the next one, and the next one...

And then before I knew it, there were no more lecturers while there were still eight of us left, including ME. One of the Animation lecturer, Mr. Dermawan Syamsuddin, S.Sn broke the silence by saying, "All of you here are in trouble academically, except Jessica."
I didn't know how to react. He proceeded, "You were doing great, Jess. Your grades are good. Unfortunately, you were LATE this morning and it was highly unacceptable."

Uh, yes it's true. I was late for... (tiny voice) an hourOkay, in my weak defense, I thought it was supposed to start at 09 AM, but apparently there was this new announcement that I missed. It stated that the Judgement Day started at 08 AM and that I was supposed to be the FIRST student to do the presentation. I know, right? Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha *stress*

The other lecturer, the one who I did my presentation with, said, "Being on time is one of the most important ethics. It doesn't matter whether it's a $10 or a $10.000 client, you still have to be there ON TIME." then he added, "You might get an A at first, but ethical issue is a serious mistake, it could get your score subtracted by 20 points and that leaves you a C."
I went speechless. The situation was very awkwardly tense. To be honest, I wasn't expecting an A or anything because compared to the other kids, mine is very simple. I just wanted to graduate. But during the presentation, I could sense that the lecturers like my work (hey, they said it too, confirmed my 'sense' lol) and now what? I actually DID got an A, but they cut it down to a C because of my fault? Oh well... I wish I was not expecting anything yet, just like before.

Then finally, after a few moment of silence, they called my name. I stood up, gave each of all the lecturers a gratitude handshake (as all of us did), took the paper, and peeked before I reach the door.. expected nothing.

Opened it...

I looked back immediately in shock and Sir Deddy (Mr. Dermawan Syamsuddin) who were the closest to the door gestured me to get out instantly and so I got out, still in shock before my brain started ticking normally again: I-JUST-GOT-PUNK'D!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wtffffffffffffffff HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAAHA Don't you think they were all too mean? Those lecturers??? Whatever whatever whatever, I got an A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA Thank God Thank God Thank God OMG............ T_______________T

After a while, all the other students went out of the classroom and turns out, ALL OF US MADE IT TO GRADUATION!!! Whoaaa~ Cheers and happiness bursted everywhere but I think I was the happiest lol. However, there's still a little doubt left in my mind so when I got home, I texted my lecturers and this is one of the replies hahaha:

I'm so happyyy ( ´ ▽ ` )
