Playing Soaps

Sekitar seminggu yang lalu, aku membuat beberapa macam sabun. Semuanya hot process. Aku memang lebih nyaman dengan cara membuat sabun dengan dimasak. Lebih pasti jadi, juga tidak perlu menunggu lama untuk memakai sabun yang kubuat.

Aku bermain dengan susu sapi dan potongan sabun earl grey. Jadilah Earl Grey Milk Soap.

Aku juga mengkombinasikan potongan sabun karbon aktif dengan sabun garam laut, serta menambahkan fragrance oil beraroma apel segar.

Aku juga menambahkan potongan sabun karbon aktif ke sabun wheatgrass.

Akhirnya, aku membuat sabun Verbena Coffee Mint lagi, karena stok lamanya sudah ludes.

Silakan coba sabun-sabun buatanku di Tealovero Shop.

Iced Creme Brule at Anomali Coffee

Sore hari, ngantuk berat, dan aku sangat tidak ingin berkutat di tengah kemacetan lalu lintas. Maka, sambil menunggu keramaian jalan raya agak mereda, aku mampir ke Anomali Coffee. Sekedar duduk santai sambil menikmati kopi dan melihat-lihat orang yang seliweran di sekitar situ.

Aku memesan Iced Creme Brule. Rasanya biasa saja sih. Kopinya tidak terlalu dominan, namun sirup karamelnya juga cukup terasa halus di mulut. Ditemani Chocolate Croissant, aku harus membayar tagihan sebesar 61.000.

Have a pleasant day!

Sea Salt & Active Charcoal Soap

Sebelumnya, aku membuat sabun dengan garam laut dan karbon aktif secara cold process. Namun, kali ini, aku mencobanya dengan hot process, serta kutambahkan sedikit fresh apple fragrance oil.

Garam laut menutrisi kulit dengan mineral, kemudian diserap ke dalam pembuluh darah yang berada di bawah kulit. Membuat kulit tampak lebih segar dan cerah. Setelah lelah dan penat beraktivitas di luar rumah seharian, mandi dengan garam laut dapat membantu menyegarkan tubuh dan mengurangi rasa pegal.

Sementara, karbon aktif mampu membersihkan kulit dari paparan polusi, debu yang menempel, serta sel kulit mati yang menumpuk menyumbat pori-pori kulit.

Aroma lembut apel segar membantu mengembalikan suasana hati. Fragrance oil yang digunakan adalah jenis yang aman digunakan untuk kulit.

Liquid Coconut Oil Soap

Several days ago, I made my attempt to make liquid laundry soap. It was made of all coconut oil. I added a few drops of apple and lavender fragrance oils.

The fact is, I can use this liquid soap not only for laundry, but also dish washing, floor cleaning, bathroom and kitchen cleaning.

Now I can smile that our home is toxic-free.

Djadjanan Djawa

I got a meeting at Setiabudi 2, Jakarta, and felt a little hungry. Then I saw an outlet in Setiabudi One, offering casual dining experience.

Pisang Goreng.
Priced 18.500 rupiah, excluding tax and service charge. Fried banana with crispy and sandy flour coating. Served with sweetened condensed milk. Nothing special and I think it is not worth the money.

Teh Tarik.
I was thinking about strongly brewed black tea with milk. But I was totally wrong. They served instant Thai tea with milk foam instead. Not bad, though. Priced 17.500 rupiah.

Tempe Mendoan.
Slices of tempeh, coated with flour and seasoning mix. Resulting a typical taste. Served with cayenne pepper. I think cayenne chops with kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) will work better.

Ramadhan 1423 H Favorites

While you guys out there posting about summer favorites, then I will share my Ramadhan favorites.

There is no summer, here, in Indonesia. But currently, it is the holy month for moslems, the majority of population, as they are doing the fasting for the whole month.

In the month of Ramadhan, we could find tons of fascinating foods for breaking the fasting. From finger foods to delicious desserts. My favorite is Kolak Biji Salak.

It is a sort of sweet porridge, containing balls, made of sweet potato and tapioca starch. With brown sugar and coconut milk. I enjoy one portion, each day, during Ramadhan.

The next item is Chic Choc Biscuit.

Chocolate balls with biscuit on the center. Very milky but not too sweet. One pack, each day.

I think you already get the picture on how much kilos I will gain by the end of month.

Next is Pasta Aglio e Olio.

I just like the it pronounced “aglio e olio”. I prepare some for breakfast or whenever I feel a bit hungry. I can use penne, fusili, or spaghetti.

But I prefer penne, because I love the texture in my mouth. I only use garlic, a pinch of salt and white pepper ground, and the oil I am using for the dish will be the next item of my favorites.

Grapeseed oil is praised for its health benefits. Either for cooking, or topical use. When used for cooking, especially pasta aglio e olio, it would give a light taste and garliv does not burnt easily. I use grapeseed oil for my bath and body products too.

I just like to looked bare, these days. Simply applying kippabuw Lotion Bar.

From toe to face, even my lips. They are made of cocoa butter, grapeseed oil and beeswax. Delicious chocolate aroma with great capability to moisturizing my super dry skin.

My current tea playlist is a local jasmine tea.

I can have up to 5 cups of Tong Tji Jasmine per day. I like to sip it plain, or add some rock sugar, or brewing it very strong and add a little sweetened condensed milk.

And my current music playlist is:

Caliban, I Am Nemesis album. My favorite tracks are Memorial and Modern Warfare.

The Agonist, album Prisoners. My favorite tracks are Panophobia and Anxious Darwinians.

I think that’s all I need to share. I am glad to know your current favorites too.

Have a pleasant day!
