Chez Bon Hostel, The Best Place to Stay in the Vintage Part of Bandung when You’re on Budget

Reading Time: 5 minutes

I remember once when I got randomly connected to someone through a meme in Slavorum, where this meme compared a place in Croatia with Bali. At that time, our conversation continued to go on through Messenger app and he said he’s been to Bandung, my hometown. And he mentioned about how much he liked Jalan Braga.

Last weekend, I got invited to stay at a hostel located exactly in Jalan Braga.

I don’t usually choose hostel as an accommodation whenever I travel, but the offer to stay at the hostel in the infamous stress that was once the promenade of Bandung in the 1920s? It’s not everyday I could get out of my comfort zone, is it?! 😉

Chez Bon Hostel is the name of the hostel, located in the street who used to be called Bragaweg in the Dutch Colonial era. I think it is the only hostel with such an excellent location in the heart of Bandung.

Review: Etude House Any Cushion All Day Perfect / Lucky Puppy Case Collection

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Hello, the beautravelers! 😀

It’s been awhile since the last time I actually wrote a post related to beauty section on my blog, but anyway… I owe a post on this Etude House Any Cushion All Day Perfect to April Magazine. It’s about time since it’s April and the magazine is probably named after this month!

So, in case you’re not familiar with April Magazine, it is an online magazine of East & South East Asian women like me. And their mission is very clear: to promote role models, to share ideas, and to raise the voices of Asian women in the English media scene.

And in case you think that it is exclusively for Asian women, then you’re wrong…

Because even if you’re not an Asian woman, they believe that listening to our stories will help us to grow further. So, check out April Magazine if you want to find out more about the stories of Asian women in general! Please help us to remove the stigma or anything that is way too stereotypical for Asian women. 🙂

Okay, so it’s long overdue but I won their giveaway in February, my birthday month. And just like some of you probably could guess, the giveaway is this Etude House Any Cushion!

Around The World With The Beauties! – (Brunei) Potions & Things’ Elixir Face Oil and (Philippines) Careline Matte Liquid Lipstick

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Hello beautravelers! 😀

A little announcement here and there, instead of making Around The World With The Beauties as a weekly feature on my blog, instead I will turn this feature into a monthly feature instead. But no worries, because you still can find some inspiration about local beauty products that you can try next time you travel in some new traveling destination! 😉

Now it’s time to get back to South East Asia region, as I would like to thank Brunei’s Zati to introduce us to Elixir Face Oil from Potions & Things, as well as Philippines’ Surita as she recommends Careline Matte Liquid Lipstick.

As most of you probably know, ASEAN is probably one of the hottest topics in terms of economy. But other than that, ASEAN country members are quite infamous with high-quality beauty products with affordable price. So, let’s check out these two products from two country members of ASEAN! 😀
