My First Few Impressions of Life Here in Lausanne

  • Being pregnant in cold weather is tough because your body is using triple the energy to carry yourself, your baby, and fight the coldness. So I am getting very tired easily here and I sleep earlier than usual heheh.
  • Honesty is key. No one really checks your bus and train tickets. You buy the pass, hop on and hop off on your own. There's not even a gate or machine where you need to go through or insert a ticket. No one will actually ask for your ticket. It's about self-responsibility and self-accountability. You pay for a ticket because you know it's the right thing to do.
  • I haven't seen any billboard ads here on the roads and it's so nice! All you see is the sky and pretty buildings and your eyes get to relax without getting fed with so much commercial info.
  • Shopping for fruits and veggies in the supermarket here is fun because you get to weigh them by yourself and just press a photo of what you are buying on the screen and have your label sticker printed automatically. I love this because I've always wanted to be a cashier! :D
  • That's all for now!

Grocery Shopping in..France?

Prices here in Switzerland are extremely high, even for grocery shopping. We were told by friends that in order to save, it is much better to shop for groceries in France where prices are 3 times cheaper. So we drove all the way to a Carrefour in France which was surprisingly only a 30-minutes drive away. How awesome! :)

My First Snowwwww!

Even though I was born in the US, I can't remember one bit how snow feels like heheh. Here in Switzerland, it's almost Spring, so hubby had the idea to "chase some snow" before it's entirely gone. Drove all the way to Col du Marchairuz and found some spots that still had snow. Yayyy! Unfortunately Shahmeer was too tired when we reached that he was asleep already, so we left him in the car sleeping, took some pics and played a bit, and headed back home..:D

Arrived Happily in Switzerland!

Alhamdulillah, after 18 hours of flight, we all reached safe and sound in Lausanne, Switzerland. Thankfully I had enough sleep on the plane so I didn't really experience any jetlag.

On our first day, we headed directly to IKEA to shop some utensils. We also ate lunch in IKEA and surprisingly the mood of its cafeteria is so different than the ones is most Asian countries. It is sooooo pretty and homey but I was too shy to take a pic..;p

And oh, I couldn't wait so I immediately started decorating our new home too..:D

Pack Pack Pack Pack

Today is the day I leave for Swiss. OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG. I'm still packing at the moment, stealing some time to type something on my blog. I've been very anxious for the past few days, I think I'm just exhausted given the fact that I am currently 5 months pregnant and my body is getting heavy, but there are soooooooo many things to do including packing things for Swiss and the other stuff I am leaving behind in Indonesia. It's also hard to get things done when you have a toddler who messes things up again and again hehe. Sigh. Bismillah ya Allah.

Anyway, my thoughts on beauty products hehehe. Muah! :)

Extremely blessed (and shocked) to see my name on the Top 4 Fashion Influencer list for Influence Asia 2017 once again. I really honestly did not see this coming. Thank you so so much!

To this date, the fact that I won in Influence Asia 2015 and got handed the award by Jay Park himself still gives me craaaaaaazy chills. Such a memorable moment in my life. Anyway, congrats to all nomineessssssssss! :)
