Fashion can inspire everyone. You can always tell straight away if a person doesn’t feel confident in what they are wearing and when you see someone wears something he/she loves and you keep staring at person’s outfit and start wondering ‘How he/she seems to feel in it?’
I bet you’ll see the self-confidence he/she gains from being happy with he/she is wearing, that's truly an appreciation of his/her life, by wearing what he/she wants.

My Advice : you just have to dress in a way which can make you feel comfortable, beautiful/charming, never take people opinion’s first, if they label you with ‘something’s not good like 'sexy/slu*t/weirdo/quirky/crazy/witch’ just because your style is different with them, don’t take it seriously, the tricky thing about having labels is that: once you define it, it attaches. Remember this, as long as you feel comfortable, you are beautiful/charming in your way because an outfit will only look amazing if you feel confident wearing it.
Wore this outfit when I went to Church on the first day of 2015 with my family. Recently, I love blacks more than any colours I have in my closet. Guess what? My nephew saw me like a witch that day ;p

I wore this outfit for sunny Sunday on my last visit to my hometown (little bit formal because I just came back from praying at Church).
I went to Open House, Balikpapan to refresh my mind with brother and friend. Open House became my favorite place in the middle of the town to hang out now, I love the beautiful green concept restaurant full of art pieces & antique furnitures, with great and delicious foods from Mediteranian, Asian, Italian and Indianese. You'll feel like in a tropical rain forest. Open house offers the best view of Balikpapan. I personally enjoy eating here.

| What I Wore : AVENUE dress + shoes / J.REP blazer |

BREATHTAKING & BEAUTIFUL VIEW OF OPEN HOUSE

Thursday, April 2, 2015

Here I am at the highest point in Japan (Mount Fuji) which stands at 3,776m (12,388feet) haha joking, actually I was but only at 2300m (5th station) and yes these photos taken from my last visit to Japan last Autumn season, you can see the previous post HERE AGAIN. Almost three quarters of Japan's land is either forest or mountains and is difficult to be made into farms, industrial or residential areas. So, if you are in Japan, visiting the iconic symbol of Japan is A MUST and I am so game to visit another mountains in Japan.
As we moved closer to mount Fuji, however we began to see less houses, more trees and when we were at Subaru highway leading up tp mount Fuji, we heard the road plays a tune? Wait, what? Yes, the roads play a song “Miagete goran yoru no hoshi wo / Look up at the stars in the night" by Kyu Sakamoto sounds when our bus' wheels pass over the grooves in the road, the music is caused by rumble strips of specific width spaced at strategic distances on the pavement. Whoah driving up and down Mt. Fuji, the road plays a tune <3 (I put the video about the singing road below the post).
The sun appeared and disappeared as the bus makes its way up through the mountains but by the time we arrived at Mount Fuji's fifth station.

AND THEN............

Hello, the beautiful Fujiyama.
Actually I wasn’t be able to seeing the snow-capped peak of Japan's no.1 volcano, mount Fuji. Nevertheless, I was glad because at least Mount Fuji herself comes into view, my prayer had been granted!
So I made my top of my list of things to do when I come back to mount Fuji :
1. To capture beautiful photos of the snow-capped peak of mount Fuji from my own DSLR camera & phone’s camera 
2. Climbing to the 10th station to witness the sun rising
This volcano is notoriously shy, hiding away from view behind mist and clouds for a lot of the year. 
There are a total of 10 stations for tourists on mount Fuji. Regular tourists who arrive on tour buses in large groups are normally allowed to go up to the 5th station, while mountaineers are allowed to go up all the way to the 10th station. 
While I was there, I looked in the gift shops and bought some chocolates, snacks and cookies. 
The view from here is truly amazing. 
The first dorayaki I ate in Japan and successfully made me one of a fan of Dorayaki, I always buy dorayaki everytime I go to Family Mart & Lawson >,<

*DETAILS*
MOUNT FUJI, SHIZUOKA, JAPAN

The easy way to get there with Japan Rail Pass (http://www.jrpass.com) :
1. Shinjuku (JR Chuo line) -> Otsuki (Fujikyu line) -> Kawaguchiko -> Mt. Fuji

2. Tokyo (Shinkansen or JR Tokaido line) -> Odawara -> local trains or buses -> Hakone region -> Mt. Fuji

*TIPS*
1. The best time to catch the beautiful view of Mount Fuji is early in the morning, in the less hazy spring and autumn seasons.
2. For those who want to climb, the official climbing season is from July to August.
It can take 7 hours each way to climb, conditions are very rocky and cold at night so come prepared.
3. To be able to hear the singing road, you have to take bus / car when you visit mount Fuji, at the Subaru highway you need to keep the car windows closed to hear well.
