Etude House Nutrifull Shea Butter Cream ~ Review

I've frequently heard Shea Butter is widely used in beauty products. So I did not miss a chance to try a product from Etude House that uses Organic Shea Butter. 

Shea Butter is fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree. Shea Butter is good for dry skin, itching skin, blemishes, wringkle, sun burn and make your skin smooth & healthy glow.


This is description on the box :


The contents of the box is :
- Nutrifull Shea Butter Cream 60ml
- Nutrifull Shea Butter Sleeping Pack 20ml


This is description of Etude House Nutrifull Shea Butter Cream

Ingredients : 5% of organic shea butter

Product Descriptions :
- Contains 5% of organic shea butter + cloud berry.
- Intensive nutrition & moisturizing cream with full of nutrition.
- Thick and butter like texture creates radiant skin.
- Floral mix fragrance + sweet fragrance.
    
How to use :
After your lotion, at the last stage of skin care, apply moderate amount according to skin texture and make it absorbed.
* If it is hard to spread due to butter like texture, melt it first on back of hands and apply later.
* It temperature gets low, you may see grain of shea butter due to characteristic of organic shea butter.


I haven't tried Nutrifull Shea Butter Sleeping Pack. Sleeping pack is used as a mask at night, before bed. And the next morning, rinse your face with warm water.

What i've tried is Nutrifull Shea Butter Cream, the cream used after bathing or after washing your face, us cream after using toner or serum. But if you want to use cream only without toner or serum it's okay.


The Nutrifull Shea Butter Cream texture is thick, reminds me of the texture of butter, of course .. The main ingredient is Shea Butter. It smells sweet, like the smell of peanuts and I like it because the fragrance is very soft.


I'm not the type of dry skin, my skin type is normal. but I wanted to try because I'm often exposed to Air Conditioning and I want to keep my skin moist and soft.

I love this cream because it moisturizes my skin all day but did not make it feel greasy. Nutrifull Shea Butter Cream is highly recommended for you who is under 35 years old and have dry skin or frequently exposed to Air Conditioning. Psstttt... This cream can also be used other parts of the body that feels hard and dry (eg, cracked heel, hard elbows skin) ^.~v


I love the Cream ^^ i think i will use another series of Etude House Nutrifull Shea Butter like Sleeping Pack and Essentializer.

Sambisari Temple (Candi Sambisari)

There are plenty of temples around jogja . Although I've lived in jogja 12 years, temples i've visited only the Borobudur Temple. I asked my BF to photos hunting in the temple site, and the temple we choose is   Sambisari Temple in Kalasan. Because the locations is not too far from my home.

Not so hard to come here, you can see the map here. The location is not so crowded because this temple is not so popular, I met some people who were learning photography too.
 

The admission price is not expensive, only IDR 2000 / person, we had a little talk with the security of the temple, he says visitors are advised not to undertake excessive activity.


We entered into a small office near the entrance, and we look at map of the temple around jogja (image size is large enough so the descriptions is readable )


There is history of Sambisari temple too


The Sambisari Temple was discovered under ground in 1966, took 21 years to reconstruct the temple, because the temple was found only the rubble stone. Due to the location of the temple there in a few meters below, we need to reach down using stairs.


Persons is in the photo below is a tourist from Japan


This is the main temple. This temple was once a place of worship the god Siwa, compared to Borobudur temple, the temple was small


Small temple in front of the main temple seems failed reconstructed


We taking a few pictures hahaha





The Sambisari Temple was small, but quite fun too, not so crowded atmosphere suitable for learning photography

BlackBerry Messenger for Android and iPhone suspended?

You've read the previous post about BBM for Android and Iphone, the excited about BBM just last for one night, RIM apparently were overwhelmed with the leaked version through file sharing.

I have tried BBM for Android and succeeded on Saturday night, unfortunately for you guys won't be able to try today.

On Saturday night I was getting pin BBM for android with prefix 7xxxxxxx (8 digits), and pin for iphone also 8 digits.

What is the fate if you already downloaded BBM for Android? I've tried but i can't connecting to server, then I uninstaled and wait for the official version, some friends told me they could, but it will be difficult to send and receive messages.

And for those who already downloaded BBM for Iphone? RIM says for BBM for iphone can be used

Then what about those who want to try? wait until the official application in the Play Store or Itunes

A little advice for Blackberry hater who secretly love BBM, you are brag willing to sell your Blackberry yesterday because BBM already exist in Iphone and Android, but the applications is not working 100% .
(and for all people who updating status to requested their pin removed because BBM already in Android / Iphone, i already removed your pin "Mr.Arrogant" and i didn't inviting your new pin 7xxxxxxx)

BBM is coming to Android and Iphone


You must be know about BBM (Blackberry Messenger), over the years, especially in Indonesia BBM become a very popular chat application. But many people don't like it, and called Blackberry users - BBM as "Alay" hmm what is the English language? Corny maybe?

Regardless of the all debates about BBM, today BBM can be tried for the Android users, and for users of Iphone can start trying tomorrow.

here's the link BBM for Android : http://www.db.tt/pWfnNvwS

and here's the link BBM for Iphone : https://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/bbm/id690046600?mt=8


Official Blackberry Website : http://us.blackberry.com/bbm.html

After trying a BBM with Android, I think it still would rather chat using Blackberry mobile phone, I'm not comfortable typing with the touch screen (yeah just call me cheesy or Alay or tacky..whatever, I don't care)

Tamansari : The Beautifull Water Castle

Warning :  This Post Maybe Will Be Bandwidth Killer ( 17 pcs Image)

Taman Sari is one of the popular cultural tourism in Jogja. Indonesian people call it Taman Sari, but foreign tourists get to know as "The Water Castle".


This is the description from wikipedia:

Taman Sari also known as Taman Sari Water Castle is a site of a former royal garden of the Sultanate of Yogyakarta. It is located about 2 km south within the grounds of the Kraton, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Built in mid 18th century, the Taman Sari had multiple functions, such as a resting area, a workshop, a meditation area, a defense area, and a hiding place.

Taman Sari consisted of four distinct areas: a large artificial lake with islands and pavilions located in the west, a bathing complex in the centre, a complex of pavilions and pools in the south, and a smaller lake in the east. Today only the central bathing complex is well preserved, while the other areas have been largely occupied by the Kampung Taman settlement.

Since 1995 the Yogyakarta Palace Complex including Taman Sari is listed as a tentative World Heritage Site.

This is me, photographed this near the Taman Sari entrance, as you can see, my hair black, I went to Tamansari at the Eid holiday 2012. Today I think to review it..


Taman Sari location is near Kraton, to get there for tourists outside jogja may be a bit confusing, but there are a lot of tour guides who helped deliver there. entrance fee to Tamansari is not expensive, I do not remember exactly, maybe about IDR 5.000.

Taman Sari consists of several buildings. The protruding part are two pool which the water looks clear, this pool is said to be used for the king's wife bathing, and the kings watched from a higher building.
 

About the history of Tamansari, usually the tour guide will explain it, when I get there, I didn't use the services of a tour guide, i only heard a little from a tour guide who was explaining to the tourists. Usually the tour guide was "the royal servants" who live around Tamansari.


We went to Taman Sari at the Eid holiday, where there was quite crowded by local and foreign tourists.


I enjoyed the atmosphere near the pool which the water looks very clear ^^


The weather was bright and sunlight blinding my eyes >.<


Unfortunately Tamansari a bit unmanaged because there are sections where people can scribble on the wall, seriously .. I want to beat in the head who've doodled walls of this precious tourism.
The management should make prohibition to not damage anything at the Tamansari, and gave penalties for those who violate.



This is the final gate of Tamansari, or perhaps the gateway? because Tamansari can be accessed from 2 way 


Helloooo.. it's me again hahahahaha


We headed to the second part of Taman Sari, an underground passageway. To reach there we have to walk through the village, it is not so difficult because there are directions and you could ask the villagers.

You are definitely familiar with this picture below, there are so many people who use this underground passageway to prewedding photos.



To get this photo I had to queued up, because there are so many tourists who want to take photos here too


And then we walk along the this passage, the conditions a little dark, feels a little bit scary >.<


fortunately not all part is dark, we toured down the hallway like this,


and like this,


And then we headed the third part of Tamansari, in the outside there are musicians who are singing, we could give a little donation to them.

I do not know what is the building actually used it, unfortunately not much left of this the building, but the atmosphere is quite nice for portraits photography or prewedding
photography, unfortunately i'm didn't have Taman Sari photos in this section.

Better Late Than Never

The flower photo above has absolutely nothing to do with the post this time, I just like to put it, just like that..

I having difficult to maintain my blog, mostly because I'm so busy with my job and i don't have enough time write a new posts.

I have so much thing in my head to post but to write a good blog post its not just write anything, good post need a good grammar (since my language is indonesia but I have to write in english, it will take a little longer) , good blog post also need a interesting story to tell, the right words and appropriate photos (the internet says : no photos = hoax)

But i'm still trying to write the best I can, actually writing is one of my hobbies, when I was in high school, I was always excited when my class's turn to write the wall magazine.

Back to the past where the internet is still expensive stuff for me, maybe start writing a blog it is too late now, there are so many bloggers who have written a blog many years ago although limited to telling stories and there are so many bloggers who present a good articles and tutorials.

Me? I want my blog inspiring and useful for many peoples in the world ^^

Don's Kitchen Lempongsari ~ Review

Vouchers Mania!!! We tried to eat at the Don's Kitchen because of mbakdiskon.com discount vouchers, the discounts was not much, only 10% but its okay.

Western restaurant with menus like sausage is being trends in Jogja, the price is not too expensive, let's look at his menu :

I hope my photo is quite clear readable :
 
We ate here twice, total of menu we try is 4

1. Penne Beurre Blanc
Creamy pasta with chicken, mushroom and cheese, the taste is soo delicious, can you see int he picture the cheese is quite a lot. Too bad the portions is small >.<

2. Grilled Chicken with BBQ Sauce and Pasta Napoletana
Grilled chicken breast portion large and delicious, I feel so full. The BBQ sauce delicious, you can dip the chicken steak pieces to the BBQ sauce. Tomato sauce pasta taste standard, not so special.

3. Cheese Sausage Double with Pasta Beurre Blanc
Cheese Sausage taste delicious, the portions are quite large and Pasta Beurre Blanc is also delicious, unfortunately not given cheese topping over the pasta. Although in the photo looks small, but I feel full

4. Panfried Chicken with Potato Ratatouille
Actually its similar to a grilled chicken steak that I ate before, just replaced pasta with sauteed potatoes, colorful peppers with tomato sauce. The portion so much, taste is also unique in that there are colorful peppers.
