Also love how it somehow matches Jess' outfit. ^^

Joe's Birthday Dinner at Pince & Pints, Singapore

So, our lil bro just turned 23 last week, but due to work and all, we couldn't celebrate it properly (we did surprise him on the 00:00 tho)! Luckily, we had this job last weekend in Singapore that required his involvement! Thus, we decided to take him to this lobster restaurant that we've been eyeing since last year... Pince and Pints!

The Lobster Roll (their best seller) — $58++
This one is very similar with Burger & Lobster's Lobster Roll in London (a Michellin-starred restaurant!), the taste was just as wonderful and rich, if not better. And the bread was delicious as well!
The Truffle Roll  $68++
(Just like The Lobster Roll but with the addition of Truffle Butter Sauce and Truffle Caviar) 
Chilli Lobster (accompanied by Fried Mantou)  $58++
The portion of this one is really HUGE! Maybe because of the rich, generous soup. 
Nevertheless, it's very delicious! The chili soup tastes sweet rather than spicy. The meat is fresh, juicy and easily peeled off from the shell. Heck, it's very delicious that even Jess finally decided to suckle the rest of the dish with her hands! X"D
 **rare occasion**

Glad that he loved it so much! He said it was definitely one of the best food he ever tasted hahah, but seriously though, their lobster was SO GEWDDD!!! And they use 1 whole lobster for each dish, so it's totally worth your money. We highly recommend it, especially if you love lobsters! ♥

Happy birthday once again, you lil monkey! No matter how old you are, how crazy you can be, you will always be our baby bro, and we will always have your back! x

Pince & Pints
Address: 32-33 Duxton Rd, Singapore 089496

Opening Hours: 5:00 - 11:00 PM

Statement Ring and Dainty Necklace

I don't always wear rings, but when I do, I prefer statement pieces, and from there on, I added a dainty necklace and subtle-toned outfit to make the ring pop out more.
Love how this necklace brought a touch of elegance to my rather casual outfit.
This blue Agate ring is even more gorgeous in real life with its natural grains and lines. I kept looking at it when I wore it, lol!

Aight, happy Saturday, guys! I'm thinking of watching 'In the Heart of the Sea' tonight :)
I already watched 'Legend' yesterday, and Tom Hardy was mesmerizing with his act as twins! I think it might land him an Oscar nomination. You should check it out!

Cloudy Jakarta

Dressed according to today's cloudy weather! Lightweight top from GOWIGASA, lightweight shorts from Lzzie, also added a lightweight cardigan from Pull&Bear because I went to the Mall this evening and I get cold easily. :/
Knitted beanie just to make my outfit not too plain heheh..

Hopefully this cloudy, humid weather will go away soon!

Elle & Jess Do The Pocky Sharehappi Dance for Pocky Day!

Hello everyone!
If you were wondering what our last Japan trip was all about, the answer is in this post: Yep, we were invited by Glico to get to know their brand better, especially POCKY!

We're pretty sure you're familiar with Pocky since it's basically everywhere since we were kids, but in case you don't, it's a delicious Japanese biscuit brand that has a wide range of flavours, from chocolate to green tea to grape! (Please bring more flavours to Indonesia xD)

And one of the things that we found out during our trip was...
POCKY has its own day!!
November 11th

Why November 11th? Because 11-11 looks like four Pocky sticks standing in a line! ^^

What surprised us more was that SO many people celebrate it! It shows just how loved the brand is in Japan. To give you a glimpse of the celebration, we visited this prestigious university in Shinjuku called Waseda University. They decorated the convenience store inside the building to look like this:

Greeted by this big display full of Pocky at the entrance:

Actually Pocky has to share this day with his brother too, PRETZ, which is more to savoury flavour rather than sweet.

In addition to the vibrant decoration, they also lowered down the price so more people can celebrate Pocky Day and share the happiness!
♡〜٩( ˃́▿˂̀ )۶〜♡

Jeng jeng! They even prepared a simple PHOTO BOOTH in front of the store along with some props, like wigs, sunglasses, and... Pocky balloons!!

The Glico team told us that other universities which have convenience stores also celebrated Pocky Day just like Waseda, because so many students would buy Pocky on that day, hence more profit for the stores! ^^

Besides universities, big supermarkets (like Carrefour in Indonesia) also joined the hype by having a special corner for Pocky:
(Sorry for the photo quality! It's from our Snapchat ^^)

Ok finally! The peak of the celebration!
Oh wait, maybe we should introduce these guys first:
Pocky has always been collaborating with popular celebrities and this time is this trio from the famous Japanese supergroup, EXILE TRIBE: Naoki Kobayashi, Takanori Iwata and Hiroomi Tosaka.

Not only they modeled for Pocky, they also created this super catchy song and dance:
↑ Love how the audience dance enthusiastically along with them! 

And, aaand, for the peak celebration of Pocky Day, Glico held a

We just have to copy the dance or modify it in our own creative ways and then submit it to Glico website.

Here's a screenshot of some of the contestants! More than 1,000 joined omg!!

If we haven't mentioned it before, Japanese people LOVE to celebratefrom Halloween to traditional festivals! And that's one of the things we love about them! It is commonly said that you will always find a festival somewhere in Japan.

So, in order to show our love for Japan and Pocky, we decided to make a video compilation of our (awkward) Pocky/Sharehappi dance at various places in Tokyo and Osaka that we visited:

Haha please don't judge us.

Hope you enjoyed this bit of information on Pocky, Japanese culture, and our latest trip to Japan :)
See you guys on our next post!

Our Stay in Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Korea | Stylish, Modern Airbnb

Hi everyone! As the title says, today's post is about our Seoul Airbnb!

If you're new to Airbnb, basically it's a website where you, as a potential guest, can book unique accommodations around the world!
"Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point."

We believe "unique experience" is its selling point. Beside the homey interior designs, you'll feel as though you're living like a local instead of a tourist because you can do all the stuff you usually do at your own home, like cooking and washing clothes! Not to mention the hosts are usually more than welcome to give you recommendations for restaurants and cafes nearby; or things to do. :) There are also some Airbnb that allow you to stay WITH the hosts or with other guests. And some even have pets with them! ^^
Just read the information carefully before you make any reservation, ok! 

We've tried more than 10 Airbnbs, and this Seoul Airbnb that's located in Gangnam area is definitely one of the best! See for yourself :)


It's a comfortable loft apartment with minimalist, cool rustic style with modern furnitures.
↑ Modern elevator & touchscreen door lock.
If you travel a lot and you are NOT a light traveler, which means you bring heavy suitcases with you, then an elevator would be a massive help, seriously. A lot of Airbnbs don't have an elevator in their building.
The entrance slash kitchen slash laundry room. Talk about efficiency!
Stairs to the 'second' floor ^^
Living room under the bed <3


There are two bedrooms and both of them are "upstairs". This is the first bedroom:
Love the chic yet comfy feel of this place!
We suppose this is the master bedroom because it has a TV 
And this is the second bedroom which is above the living room 
The ladder of this bed hurt our feet when we climbed up and down. So it's best to wear socks! And let the elders sleep on the master bed. :)
↑ View from each bed ^^ 
↑ The second bedroom might not have a TV, but it has a pandaaaa haha xD Not bad for giving us a lil bit of @miikopanda's vibe.
↑ Big cupboard located beside the living room.


Both of us spent a lot of time here; watching anime while snacking, blogging, browsing, aaanddd... watching Korean TV shows and commercials (yes, we love observing commercials around the world lol, very interesting) here 
The TV is right across the living room!
↑ DVD player!
Photogenic sofa ^^


Well, what can we say? (Seriously, what can we? Our mom said -->) This is a very well-equipped modern kitchen! It has mostly everything you need to cook up a simple feast; from kitchen utensils, cooking utilities like stove, rice cooker, oven, to cooking oil and cutleries!
↑ Bottles of mineral water were already provided! 
Side note: You CAN'T drink the tap water in Korea! At least that was what our host told us, so we'll just go with it.


There's nothing more appalling to an accommodation than a dirty, old bathroom. That's why when we're staying at a new place, one of the first things we do is to check out the bathroom first. Thankfully, the bathroom here is very clean and filled with modern amenities!
It's quite small, alright, but it's perfect for a studio apartment! And it has a good drainage system.


↑ Ok this is the best part! PORTABLE WIFI!!!
This reason alone is enough to choose this Airbnb haha.. You CAN take it anywhere you go! No need to worry of being disconnected from the outside world! Just make sure you bring a power bank too, in case it runs out of battery, ok. ;)
↑ Say what? Another Wifi!! This time it's a cable one for home. Hello, movie streaming!
↑ So happy that they provided a good hair dryer!
↑ Love the generous supplies.
↑ Modern washing machine and friend
↑ They provide a lot of big towels! Yay to that ;D
↑ Intercom and Heating System / Water Temperature. So high tech compared to other Airbnbs we've visited!
↑ Cleaning tools.
↑ In case you're wondering how the electrical outlets in Seoul look like... it's the same type used in Indonesia! :D (The standard voltage is 220 volts)


3 minutes walk to the nearest convenience store, and there are a lot of nice cafes and restaurants around! We really like the location :)


Near Yeoksam and Gangnam station.

If you happen to rent or own a vehicle, you can safely park inside the building! 


IDR 1,133,289/night
Extra people: IDR 143,454/night (after 3 guests)



Contact Person / Host: Jiseon

If this Airbnb is already fully booked, or you want more choices, you might want to check out Jiseon's other listings:

Jiseon is very nice, friendly and responsive! Even when we had questions or concerns at 11pm, she still answered us very quickly and patiently. And when we needed more amenities like towels or glasses, she provided them on the very next day! She really made our trip easier and more enjoyable. Thank you, Jiseon!! ^^
