Fresh lemon squeezed into a cup of Earl Grey tea, dusted with a sprinkle of spices.
.
Not quite my cup of tea at first. It was slightly confusing. I picked this bottle up, rather on a whim, because it was on sale and looked (and sounded) more enticing than the others on the rack. My mind, romanced by images of a spice trail voyage to the heart of Malabar to encounter princesses and Maharajah, thought of a more heady oriental spicy notes. This juice turned out more citrusy than I expected. Yet after a few wear, it grows into me (or maybe I grow into it). It’s light enough for everyday wear. For evenings, I layer it with a more floral powdery scent to create a fresh yet sensual mood.
.
PS: yes, I did sniff it out first before purchasing but like I said, my mind and its imagination played a big part in the final decision. I think fragrance is personal because of its link to emotions and memories, which affect our preferences. I found that the scents I liked 10 years ago are different from what I like now. And I rotate my fragrance on daily basis depending on how I feel that day. How about you?

Intimate Iftar with @senayancity over gorgeous dishes by @patresevito and @ardikadwitama. Have always loved Ardika/@ouidessert’s creative take on sweets, and this is my first taste of Patrese/@avoradining’s creations. Definitely will keep my eyes more open for these young chefs’ popup events. Tonight’s menu is international with local touch, by way of spices. Plating is simple but pretty👌🏻 My favorite dish would be the spice crusted tilapia—fresh, light, with an explosion of flavor yet not overpowering. Well done and thanks for inviting, #senayancity team 🙏🏻

Spent last Friday morning cleaning up Mertasari beach, Sanur, with @breitling and their Surfers Squad, and @oceanconservancy team. While the campaign against single use plastic like plastic straws, bottles, bags, utensils, and food wrappers are widespread nowadays, the stuff I found at the beach sent a bit of a shockwave. Aside from those obvious ones I stated, I found pens, pieces or components from toys, styrofoams, and basketloads of ciggie butts. We live with plastic and we are more dependent to this material more than we even realize, and more than I’d like to acknowledge, thanks to mass consumerism. All these trash will eventually go into our bodies, via the seafood we eat. Fact: the average person eats 70.000 microplastics every year.
.
Cleaning up the beach is an important act but it doesn’t solve the real issue. While I agree wholeheartedly that we need to contribute and take action individually to address this issue, by practicing mindful and conscious consumption, leaning towards less/zero waste lifestyle, on a macro level the government and leaders of the world should do their work in stopping the chain from top.

Never not happy when I’m in the Island of Gods, even when it’s cloudy. Touched down at Bali yesterday for @breitling x @oceanconservancy Bali beach cleanup event. Dressed up a bit last night for beach bbq dinner and lots of coconuts 🥥💚
.
See more on my story, including this morning’s trash collecting activity at Mertasari beach, Sanur. Not a very appealing thing to watch? But you’ll be surprised to see what kind of stuff goes into the ocean, into the marine lifes (read: the seafood you eat), and eventually into our bodies. 🐟

#latepost of this #dewipowerluncheon event that we had a few weeks ago with EY Indonesia and Heritage Amanah to celebrate Hari Kartini, where Prof. Dr. Ismail Serageldin delivered a talk about “Muslim Women and The Challenges of 21st Century.” In a time where extremism is getting stronger, oppressing people especially women, it’s a bit of a relief to know that we’re not in this “war” alone. It’s not an easy battle but one that’s not impossible to win over. Dr Ismail is the Emeritus Founding Director of The Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Senior Advisor to the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University for the design of Al-Azhar new library and the advisor to the Egyptian Prime Minister in matters concerning culture, science, and museums. Aside from getting valuable insights about how women are depicted or positioned in Islam throughout history and more (cue: women leaders or generals were a common thing back then), it was also an honor to meet the powerful women who attended the talk that afternoon.
