I'm going BAMBAATAA


Hey, Guys! I'm back again!
Today i wanna show you my recent favorite outter wear called "ZERO" from capsule collection 2015 BAMBAATAA EXTENDED by Danjyo Hiyoji.




 I always love Danjyo Hiyoji's collections since first time i know it, their collections are super edgy and fun specially this time, they put on a bit playful color to it.
The tribal pattern and all the colors are just too cute not to buy! Plus, i have a thing for outter wear, thats why i choose this one. LOL


The asymmetric side is just too genius, i love the idea of combining asymmetrical look on the side, and drapping on the sleeve, andddd also a cut out back, they're just too genius.





Anyway, if you find out that you are in love with their collection like i do, you can always find them at District 27, Lenmarc Mall Surabaya, Goods Dept., and Central Department Store Grand Indonesia.

Mouthgasm break fasting at Bystro by All-stay Hotel Semarang

It's 2pm already, and i haven't eat anything for my breakfast today, so i decided to go to Bystro, located at All-stay Hotel at Veteran St. Semarang since they serve really good food.
Well, as we know, the food director of this restaurant is a well-known chef of Eatalia a healthy food catering based at Semarang, Chef Donny Gunawan who happens to be my friend(boss)'s brother-in law.
He basically is known for his skill to cook so many good dishes, specially western and Italian, so, trust me, you should try his dish!



 At first i ordered Bangkok Spicy Salad, which is very fresh and tasty, with prawn pieces which is not my favorite but it's good so i just ate it.

But I'm still craving for more meal because i was so hungry, and i ordered their super famous wagyu steak with mashed potato in herbed butter sauce.



And as i espected, his cook is never disappoint me, and i ended up supper stuffy and full. LOL
You should try too, and all of this fancy dishes is not that expensive, the wagyu steak is only for IDR 120K++, it's not that pricey for the satisfying taste!

My personal favorite dish is this wagyu steak or the new-york striploin that is only for IDR 75K++

Drop by All-stay hotel at Veteran St. and the Bystro is located right next to the hotel lobby.

Maharani The Musical

As one of the world's most important agenda in the party supply business in Central Java, Ikapesta Wedding Exhibition become a prestigious event to showcase a number of masterpieces of the top fashion designers in the city of Semarang. At the Ikapesta 2016 this year 3 fashion designer who joined IFC Chapter Semarang, namely: Bramanta Wijaya , Angela Chung & Devy Ros, create a fashion show collaboration that still leaves a visual memory till this day wrapped in shades of very strong musical results by Golden Event Organizer's idea.

 *) The main set of the musical


 Maharani The Musical itself is an adaptation of a true story of the country of bamboo curtain. Telling Orchid's trip, a forth grade concubine of the Qing Dynasty who successfully delivered the only heir to the throne of China and ultimately must lead the country from behind the stout walls of the Forbidden City.
 
Though the main concept of this show is a musical, but we will still be spoiled with
very strong high fashion shades, far from being 'costume'. Bramanta Wijaya , Angela Chung & Devy Ros are responsible for all clothing female actor; starting from the protagonist, ensemble up to dancers. While the designer Phillip Iswardono in charge of all male casts. Designer headpiece was also involved in the show this time; Handmade Pita by Felice Joi.

 *) Several scenes of the musical


Carrying the oriental theme does not make the designer's dresses trapped in the breath of a typical mainstream Chinese costume. Modern definition and depth to any character with a selection of colors to suit the mood of the story as a guide for any designers involved. In the first half, while telling Orchid is entering the Palace of the Forbidden City, Bramanta Wijaya featuring a series of white dress in loose pieces combined with a headpiece by Pita; shaped carvings typical of China but in shades of the same color, white.  

*) Casts, Dancers and Models in Bramanta Wijaya's


The story rolled up, Orchid, concubine of the fourth stage was crowned the queen because of the birth of the only heir to the throne. Angela Chung made an appearance to become more elegant Orchid with lace and applique pieces that highlight the beauty of a woman's curves, combined with hair ornaments by the shape of white orchids which complements the appearance of a glamour queen.


 
 Meanwhile, cloak in firm color design, Phillip Iswardono, reinforces the appearance of the soldiers and nobels of Forbidden City in this round.  




As the final round at Maharani The Musical, Devy Ros displays the dresses in shades of red with precision structures on body shape and distinctive headdress noblewoman Manchuria created by laser cutting techniques by Pita.
 
 *) Vyna Lee as Maharani singing her part of "heart breaking" scene
 *) Julian Zheng, acted as the Emperor of China sing his part on the show

One interesting thing of Maharani The Musical, at the sections where Orchid has told to become the Empress of the Forbidden City, three designers; Bramanta Wijaya, Angela Chung & Devy Ros together create a very fancy 'look' in the right proportions without leaving signature style of each designer.


Maharani The Musical performances involving nearly 100 young creative talent from the city of Semarang, such as; Vyna Lee as Maharani,
Julian Zheng as Emperor. Vita Mahaswari, Kezia Maya and Dance by Freedom Works.


*) A special singing performance by Bramanta Wijaya

 3 young designers joining this Semarang city in Maharani The Musical has proven that if we have an open perspective, the difference will not lead to conflict but will produce a work that is filled with love.
