A Krissy Special

Posted in creaking creativity, girl talk, moments in life by littletiara on April 6, 2010

Krissy is one of the nicest blogger around, I’m so lucky to have met her through Mel‘s christmas gift swap, we became friends instantly after that I believe, it’s not hard to befriend her anyway. WE got even closer by following each other in twitter, I love the fact that internet makes two girls from very different places so close.

And today, she’s officially 20 24 years old! Yay! Happy birthday pretty girl!

I don’t know what else to say, I just hope you like it. Best wishes to you, because you deserve the best in life! :D

I know, it’s HAPPY BIRTHDAY RISSY on my picture, I swear it’s KRISSY!!! Really!

See… Told you so. lol. By the way, do I make a good japanese girl? Haha…

edit:

Oh, look what else I got for you!!! :D

Yep, it’s nashe!

Hot guys time

Posted in girl talk, words of the brain by littletiara on March 27, 2010
To release myself from the stress I am suffering, I decided to go around (as if I hadn’t do it too much already), so in this post, I won’t talk about any thesis related stuff (oh, yeah right, I just did).
Some may notice that I don’t talk much about celebrities, well… honestly because I don’t know much about them. Sure I watch a TV series or two (like HEROES) and fangirling over the eye candies (like Milo Ventimiglia and Zachary Quinto) but so far those were all in this blog.
So today I think I should share you one more of my favorite boys (despite the few), oh, Imma give you two because I love them more when they are together. Guess who?
This is the part where people start screaming so scream girls!

JOHNNY DEPP!!!

How can I not fall for him? He’s hot, talented… oh my, it’s beyond my words to explain him.
What can I ask for more? Oh sure thing…
It’s gonna be Johnny Depp and Tim Burton.
I LOVE this duo.

I love each and every one of Burton’s movies, for someone who never really pays for a movie ticket I do quite amazing when it comes to his film, and I love the fact that he’s teaming up with Depp. LOVELY! Hahaha… And of all their collab, I gotta say Willy Wonka is my all time favorite. WINNER!

PS. I LOVE Burton’s messy hair. lol.

Frilly and Flowery

Posted in girl talk by littletiara on March 18, 2010

I wanted to post about my birthday surprise here but found no appropriate pic for it, all the pictures taken that day was blur, lol.

So I’ll just tell you that my friends came to my house early in the morning, I was still all wrapped up in my so warm blanket. So you can guess when I met them I was all messy, my eyes were still droopy and such, lol.

That was a nice surprise after all :D

Continued with a large salami pizza with my girls and shopping spree with my mom and dad. Mom said she’ll buy me anything I want, so I was contemplating between high heels, or yet another pair of chuck (yes, I always have this confusion when coming to shoes), guess what? I ended up with this new dress, a pink, flowery one, and frilly! Haha.

Isn’t it adorable? Lol.

On another note, I know you notice the formspring widget on my sidebar where you can ask anything to me :) I love your questions, although most of the time it’s anonymous. I have no problem with you being anonymous (sometimes I’m curious too, though). So go on and ask me anything, since you can always be anonymous, lol.

Little secrets special edition

Posted in girl talk, little secrets by littletiara on March 15, 2010

I know I’ve been talking about myself too much, from my daily boring days to whatever happened in my love life, and even what I feel, I think it’s kind of boring but what else should I talk about? I’m a pro about myself, lol.

I have nothing much to talk about, I mean, my life has been pretty normal at last, so I came up to surprise you with some unique things about me, just in case you need more information about me, lol.

1. I love running around the house only in my bathrobe.

I can stay an hour after taking a bath only using my bathrobe and do some house activity, like blogging, or cooking, or whatever. Wait, let me explain, nobody’s in my house and Indonesia’s weather are always too hot for my liking, so bathrobe is a winner! lol.

2. I have this obsession to visit my bloggy friends one by one.

Tumblr_kp7zt0cnfp1qzy5cxo1_500_large
(source)

Aka touring around the world mission. I’ll go knock knock on each of your doors and say, “can  I stay in for a night? (or more, lol)”. This will have to start from the nearest one, Claradevi, who lives in the same city as me, I won

‘t stay in her house, though. Followed by Andhari, and then Priscilla Clara (it’s more likely she’ll visit me first, lol), maybe Krissy is in the next line, who knows? lol. If I am to make the list now, it’ll take long because I’ll need world map, lol.

3. I love hiding under the blanket/bedcover.

2w9xxxqffozc9x602l5bn7fqo1_400_large

What’s so not lovely about this? This is why I’m so picky when choosing bedcovers. lol.

4. I have heaps of plushies in my bed.
20090420101818

I at least get one for my every birthday, and I am almost a twenty one year old girl. I think my mom, my friends anyone kept thinking I’m fifteen. It’s okay, though. I love them, well… not as much as I did, but yeah. lol. Not that I mind, it’s just that they’re taking my space too much, lol.

5. Dolls are scary (or more likely, freaky)

148623254_b87d2bf329_large Tumblr_kyfws08cgl1qznnmeo1_500_large

Blame chucky? I know they’re pretty but there’s something about the shiny porcelain/plastic skin, big eyes and all those that makes me shiver looking at them, eww. Maybe because they look so real but at the same time obviously fake? I don’t know.

And by the way, this gallery, is filled with lost of adorable dolls pictures, which I found scary but also beautiful.

I think this post is so unfocused and pointless, lol. I love being random, that’s the 6th!

My world is turning up-up-up and side-side-side and down

Posted in girl talk, little secrets, moments in life, that guy, the best friend by littletiara on March 12, 2010

I just realized I didn’t put up any title in the previous post, lol. Guess I was too caught up with the fact that… oh well, that LOTS of things happened, and I was so wrong thinking everything will end soonest. Later yesterday I found my friend(s) commenting on my La Vie en Rose post. Which practically turned me as crazy as one could be, just in case you forget, in the very first paragraph of that post I’ve written:

Now I just need to pray silently none of my friends read this.

Amen.

You may say my prayers went unanswered. And honestly, reading these comments from my friend freaked the hell out of me (duh, of course).

There’s something not much people know about me, but now I’m gonna let the world know.

Ever heard of something called ‘Philophobia‘?

It’s the fear of… anything love related, fall in love, being in love, being loved, and such.

Let alone being in a relationship.

I know it’s ironic for someone as addicted to anything romance-related as me is afraid of being in love, but oh well, this isn’t the first time I face this so…

Okay, I’ll talk about this phobia later. Not really the point, although it is in some ways.

on with the story, I was so freaked out when I read my friend commenting, so I decided to just let the guy knows it from me instead of from the gossip, so after contemplating for minutes, I texted him (this is the exact words I sent to him, yes, I wrote him in english)

Look, what am I to you? Are we friends or are we more? For me it’s the latter, though I’m still unsure about it. 

Anyway, I wrote it in my blog and one of our friends read it which means I’m practically dead.

Geez, why is it always me confessing and not the other way around? Stay friends aren’t we?

Aren’t I sound so cool? Blunt and bold and a little bit insane?

Guess what he said in his reply? lol. He only said one word, 

“Seriously?”

So I explained that I do, though I’m not in any state of a relationship, I enjoy being with him and I just tell him because I don’t want him to know it from his friends instead of me. He answered that he feels the same but choose to take things slowly.

One thing I missed to explain though, that he’s not the one and only I have in mind, I love hopping from one guy to another (which isn’t a good habit but…), sure I enjoy his company, I love spending time with him and do something I’ve never thought of before, but there’s so much more of the boys world I want to unveil and try.

Anyway, we’ve known each other’s feeling, so is it that kind of open relationship? I don’t know. I felt silly when I remember how my romance related stories always end up this way, do you think confessing your feeling to every guys you like is a good thing? lol.

I think I should be thankful that my crushes have a pretty smart mind (remember the best friend?). *phew*

and by the way, I think I miss the best friend. Now it’s his turn to do the duty in the village for two months! Two months! Geez, I miss him muchies.

And and and! My brother is coming home today! Well… he’s coming this morning, and this night he’s coming back to the city he lives in. He’s just plain crazy, really. He arrived here 7 in the morning and back there again 7 in the evening? I need more time to snuggle with him and his craziness…

I WANT MORE! lol :P

Not enough of our awesomeness?
Fine, I’l give you more.

I think he beats me in making faces, haha. He’s pro.

And oh, I got my new phone already. Though I’ve been wanting for a 5530 (and actually still secretly want it now), but I and dad couldn’t find it anywhere. So daddy dearest decided to just buy me this E63. Not bad ;D only less stylish, all the facilities I want in 5530 is actually owned by this phone too.

And my internet is BACK! The modem is working properly again! I don’t know what happened, I mean, we didn’t do anything! Really! Hahaha… I’m so happy!
Quite a long post to sum what happened in two days, isn’t it?

edit.
Lol. So most people thought those pictures are of me and the crushies, no he wasn’t, that’s my dearest little brother there! ;D haha. I checked it and yeah, I didn’t even explain who that is o.O my bad, lololol.

La vie en rose

Posted in girl talk, moments in life, that guy by littletiara on February 28, 2010

This is, like I’ve said, scary to write about something uncertain. But I guess I just can’t help it. Now I just need to pray silently none of my friends read this.

Amen.

tumblr_kxk1rbpj2V1qa615oo1_500_large

So we’re gonna talk about Mr. Swept me off my feet?

He is not, let me repeat, not handsome, at all. He isn’t coming from a well-off family either, you may not know but I am kind of a materialistic girl who usually fall for boys in cars. Compared to the best friend, or my other crushes, he is like nothing. But these facts are what drawn me closer to him, if he isn’t handsome, why the hell I like him? How the hell did he make me fall for him without cars or any other bling-blings?

He and I, we are two different people from two very different worlds.

I spent my first (at least) 13 years moving from one big city to another in Indonesia, I never really have childhood friends, my favorite toy had always been the computer and anything technology related.

He? He spent his entire childhood in his little town with his friends, playing kite and feeding cows. His email password is the last thing he would want to remember.

Growing up, I learnt, which later become a habit, to go to malls, beauty salon and some other places where I can spend my money on, and most of all, I am one who keeps my image good. I play nice to everyone, I was taught to and I found nothing wrong with that. I grew up with manners, things like barf, fart and even yawn aren’t supposed to do in public, not even to talk about it.

He, however, is a wild one. He’s an adventurer who had gone visiting one forest to another, discovering some more new caves or beaches, and play hide-and-seek with lions, or some other beasts. When he has nothing to do, he will go rafting. He farts everywhere, and do things as he wants. He rarely take a bath and when he does it will take forever.

See how worlds apart we are?

But I guess what they said is right, opposites attract.

p.s. rereading this, I suddenly realized how short this is. Guess I’m all too smitten to even write more ♥

Growing Up

Posted in girl talk, moments in life, the best friend, words of the brain by littletiara on February 24, 2010

I just got myself a new haircut yesterday and took a picture of it using my webcam, and so when I opened the folder, I found the pictures of me these last three years. I couldn’t believe those pictures were taken in three years gap. I am changing, but not really. lol.

tiara

Do you see me changing from time to time?

I remember one day my friend came to my house and saw my baby albums, and she said, “how come your face never changes from baby up to now?” lol. She was of course hype things up, I mean, that’s not possible, right? lol.

Anyway, notice that in the pictures my hair is always short? This year I started off aiming to have at least a slightly longer hair, just because I want to know how do I look, and this is the latest picture of me with my hair and new bangs :P

Photo0177a

Not bad, I hope. Heheh.

And by the way, growing up isn’t about facial change, right?

This is kind of different and scary to type about but I think I’ve found a… someone new? Well or so I hope.

Why scary to write you ask? Oh isn’t it always scary? Writing about someone you like/love/whatever, admit it, you want them to read it but you’re also afraid if they do really read it, lol.

Anyways, yes. I have found a new object of my affection. The last time I went out with the best friend, all feelings were different. It was still enjoyable and fun, and my heart, oh my dear heart still went boom boom when I saw him from afar, but there was a huge difference I felt I couldn’t fathom what.

And that time, I was sure we were back to be best friends.

The new guy? He had successfully swept me off my feet. Crazy… but ah, whenever I’m in love I’m always crazy, so… ah well… this one is just different.

And I think I’ll just talk about him in the next next next post.

insecurities and happiness

Posted in creaking creativity, girl talk, moments in life, words of the brain by littletiara on January 12, 2010

Ah. I have like heaps to say, from my insecurities to happiness to wild imagination to confession, but I know clearly I can’t really write about ‘em all in one post. So I’ll choose to talk about the first two.

Insecurities?

20081222084608

Being a big daydreamer as I am, the biggest fear I have is for not having my dreams come true. You know how hopelessly romantic I am, how excited I can be talking about marriage and relationships, how I am a truly believer of happy endings.

There’s one very bad thing, though. When I’m not in the right mood, I tend to think of the worst possibility; what if all those only dreams that would never come true? What if I stay single forever? What if I can’t get my own happy ending?

I can never stop daydreaming, though. I just feel that sometimes it’s unhealthy.

In a whole different notes, I’m so happy that people seem to like my artwork, so glad to see the enthusiasm! I can’t open any store yet for I have this upcoming culture project where I have to leave you all, but as soon as the project finished, I’m determined, by then I’ll have my thesis (at least) started and discussed with my professor and a shop will be on the way.

And by the way, I managed to make a desktop wallpaper out of my artwork, so you can use it (oh well, as if you would, lol) they’re available in four different sizes, choose yours, lol.

the original artwork is this one:
red copy

1024*768

1280*1024

1600*1200

1280*800 (wide screen)

I hope you like them :)

One thing though, I still don’t know how much should I sell my artworks for? lol. Really, selling things is my specialty, but deciding the price? Uh-oh *scratches head*.

So tell me, how much would you pay for a calendar set sized A6 (about 15×10,5 cm)? It’s small I know, but I love small things, I still need to learn to make something bigger, haha, I think I’m too consistent for the word “little” haha.

Just give me a clue of a reasonable prize range, it’s not like I’m Picasso whatsoever, lol. Thank you so much for the help, in advance :)

Of your soul and its mate

Posted in girl talk, the best friend, words of the brain by littletiara on January 8, 2010

I just listened to the recorded conversation (again), but this time I decided to listen to the full version (yes, the full 2 hours or so version), somewhere in the conversation; we talked about soulmate.

I didn’t (or rather, couldn’t) really pay attention to what he said about it (for my heart was beating too fast and all), still… now when I listen to it again, I still can’t fully grasp it. As a hardcore fan of anything romantic, the concept of soulmate is still kind of too absurd to me, sure thing I’d love to believe that everyone was meant to be with their special someone, who no matter they go they’ll end up with the soulmate anyway.

But how can we know that the one we ended with is our soulmate? What if somewhere along the road we gave up the relationship?

In the middle of this conversation about soulmate he stated that he wants to write a book about it, about love and soulmate, and knowing his poor ability to write and/or to express his thoughts in words, he asked me to help him. Now, that’s a nice future project, a book about love and soulmate? :)

No, not a story about love and soulmate, but more about its concept and thoughts about it so I might as well start the observation now, do you believe in soulmate?

ps. I texted him the other night and now after I let him know all my feelings towards him, everything seems and feels different, it gives me a funny feeling inside me, I couldn’t even try not to write ‘lol‘ or ‘haha‘ in my every message. This is fun. Haha.

pps. Sorry for keep talking about this very occasion *sigh* I would stop if I could, but I think my brain is still left there, I’ll get it back soon, really. (or not really). Hehe.

Artsy Pantsy Tiara

Posted in creaking creativity, girl talk, the best friend by littletiara on January 6, 2010

To say that I started 2010 with a hit is almost an understatement, everything seems so dreamy and whimsical to me, I mean… every single thing! Not only that confession day but the whole six days I’ve been through.

I gotta say that I never actually spend my New Year’s Eve outside the house, frankly, I spent my last three NYE in bed, it was whether I fell sick, raining hard outside or I was just simply too lazy. But this year started differently, I got out of the bed, leaving the comfort zone to a more fun place, with friends and lots of fireworks.

Me confessing my feeling to the best friend was indeed one of the hugest step, bravest act I’ve ever encountered. Even until now I still can’t believe I really did it. Every morning when I wake up I ponder that it’s another new day, and I wasn’t just dreaming or being delusional, all really happened.

Another huge step is this giveaway thing, my artwork finally being undiscovered, little by little.

So today I’ve decided to answer some questions about my artwork:

Mariella:
What inspires you when you make those drawings/paintings?

Organised Chaos:
What kind of things inspire your artwork ?

They kind of ask me a same question, right? Great minds think alike? ;)

My artwork is purely an imagination doing which most of all based on my feelings. When I’m feeling blue I’ll draw something kind of gloomy with gray colors and darker tone, and when I’m madly in love, you know how it’ll turns out to be, pink and all. lol.

My friends inspire me too, real things that happened in real life, and my thoughts about it. Basically it’s a brain and heart work, hehe.

Rika Safrina:
how long have you been drawing, and how did it start?

Sheri:
How long have you been an artist? Do you remember the first thing you created?

I learned drawing years ago when I was in the 5th grade, my friend taught me. She was such a blessing to me, she helped me find my artistic way, I wouldn’t be the same without her. She was an artist herself, and I think she saw the talent(?) in me, so she taught me, how to make nice line, curves, colors, gradations and all. Whenever she knew a drawing competition she signed me up, so I got used to it; that was how.

The first thing I created?
I don’t really remember, honest. It was almost more than ten years ago I believe. lol. I think it’s something about plane, because well… the first drawing competition I participated in was held by Garuda Indonesia, Indonesian national airlines.

Nikolett:

– What are some of your favorite artworks that youv’e made?

My favorites? I love all my artworks, but I love it more when I can make what I have in mind into a real piece, here are some:

get together2
I believe some of you had seen it before. It was made when I missed someone (Geez, and you should also know who he is), I felt him getting distant and I couldn’t help but missing him.

fireflies2small
I just love how magical this picture can be, all the fireflies glow and the colors captured what I wanted to make perfectly. Before I made this I’ve been planning and plotting for days in my head, once I got my hands on my wacom bamboo and started drawing I just felt absorbed to it, once finished I felt so… accomplished.

Second question from her…

Do you find it easier to express yourself in words, in artworks, or by speaking your thoughts out loud?

in artworks I must say, everything can be so ambiguous here, and yet hold a lot of meaning. Not forgetting how heart and brain work so in-sync when I’m drawing, actually I often surprised myself at how my artworks turn out.

Though, not all people understand language of painting, and how a drawing can be so multi-interpreted.

Ceecile – Priscilla Clara

If you can describe yourself in a fantasy way, what will you draw to define who you are??? ^^

A princess of course! Haha, one who loves to runaway from the palace and walks in the crowd. One who is well-known amongst her people and is loved :P. And of course one who is hopelessly romantic and enjoys the palace ball like shopping :) who waits patiently for her prince charming to come.

fancesmall

Honestly dear, I wanted to keep this picture a secret. Other than the fireflies this is my other favorite. Just look at how romantic and whimsical the colors are. Not to mention how hard it was to imagine how is actually a dancing position is. Haha… So this can be counted as an answer to Nikolett’s question as well.

I hope you all enjoy this post :)
