Light and Fun Francophone Films

   Holiday is coming and what’s more comforting than spend our holiday with watching movies all day? As a college student especially i’d like to dedicate my college break to watch movies or tv shows as many as i could because it was hard sometimes to squeeze your schedule to watch movie when school is rolling.

  Well, i’d like to dedicate this post to recommend you films that are worth to watch. Not just some films but french or francophone films! Let me introduce you a little bit into the world of french and francophone cinema. A little background story, i am a french studies and lit student. That’s why, you could say i’m little bit have knowledge about this stuff. I took Studies on French and Francophone Cinema class last year and might as well share my knowledge that i got from this class.

Let’s start with some fun stuff, films that are light and fun to watch (there are some intense ones!)
  • 1.      Petit Nicolas
  • 2.      Les Vacanced du Petit Nicolas
  • 3.      Ma Vie de Courgette

  All those three are kids film but like i said it was fun and good. But even thought they are light and considered films for kids, there are still several things that you could get. Such as Petit Nicolas en Vacances, you’ll get a little piece of how parisiens family live. With the setting long holiday, this film shows you how empty the city of Paris as most of people who live there are moving to touristic place such as place and only tourists who dominates the cafes and restaurants.
Those informations seems obvious and simple right, but sometimes we forget and not notice those simple things. First lesson of watching french and francophone film, be critical, because most of those films always have moral messages and something to tell to the viewers. They want to bring up certain topics that are happening around us not just for selling the tickets or making money. Seriously. Have fun! Comment if you want to ask something.



It is somehow pitiful to be always 'waiting for that moment'
to be too naive to believing in fate
and forgetting that human could do amazing things.
Fate is a fate when we put our efforts,love, and passion into it
if not, it just a breeze in the wind.

A reminder for myself to not give up on the hardest path of life, about being grateful, and not lazy-ing around. 


Etude House Moisftull Collagen Moisturizer Review

Etude House is known for its affordable products and that is why it is popular among students or young adults. For the quality itself I never complain about it, it is pretty good considering the price. I love their water tint and their eyebrow pencil and still using it until this day.

Today I want to share my thoughts about a skincare products from Etude House, it is their moisturizer from their Moistfull Collagen line. I already finished up the products so it is honest thoughts after trying the product itself. Let's start with the price. You could check out from their website (here). It is 20.40 USD but i bought it from an online shop for 180,000 IDR. I thought it is kind of expensive when i ordered it but when it came the size of the product is huge, so price wise it is good.

And how did the product works for me? When i bought it my face was in its driest condition. Straight to the point it didn't as hydrating as i would think. It has a gel consistency so  i guess it aims for normal and oily skin. It is really fast to absorb into my skin and not greasy.

The thing that is really bothered me is the smell. I;m no someone really bothers with smell of the skincare products easily but this one does. 

My conclusion is this is a good moisturizer for you guys with normal to oily but careful if you are sensitive with fragrance or alcohol. I could tell from the smell the alcohol is quite strong. Repurchase? Nope.



i am constantly filling my head with negative thoughts. this is one of my 'downs' and i have to battle it everyday this summer break. does god would feels sorry for me to live a life like this? does god would ever feels sorry for my future later? i am actually really scared of my future. i am scared of being a failure and being alone.


5. recovering

the theme for this 3 months long holiday is to recover. life's been a little bit difficult for me. i've been through several things that i don't really want to talk about explicitly because it's enough for me to thinking about and fussing about such thing that makes me sad or down. i'm not proud of myself lately for not living a productive day in this days off college. i know that it's just an excuse for being lazy, those things that makes me down and sad for almost months. but i am trying.
