Most of my stuff is pretty much the same like last year. Here I am happily share my thought of some new things that I found interesting and maybe useful for traveling and daily life.
This stainless steel mug is actually my wishlist since ages ago and I am so happy when found it while I was in Japan last September. It is quite heavy and pricey but it can hold hot and cold beverages until the next day!
How I love the quick dry material and long lasting minimalist style of this Hongkong-based international retailer tees! Basically you can mix and match all of their tees for all occasions. Yes! it is a bit pricey but the quality is un-doubtly remarkable. I still have the same tees since 3 years ago and they never let me down although recently I bought again the same model with different colours.
This Norwegian luggage brand is very affordable compared to any (luxury) brand. I found it very useful when I use it a lot during my weekend trip in Europe and Business traveling in Sumatra. The front pocket is for laptops which is handy and make things easier for security checks. Their size is slightly smaller compared to any cabin luggage but I guess it is much better when you do light traveling.
I am a big fan of Argan Oil, VCO and Olive oil for natural face oil. But I can tell that Argan oil is the best one to moisturise your face. I found that argan oil from Utama Spice is affordable and locally produced in Bali. This wonderful oil is placed in tiny 30ml but last until 1 month at least. You can also use argan oil to treat your dry or damaged hair and replacing your body lotion.
This perfume is officially called as Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s Ginestra fragrance. It is made from a bouquet of sweet floral notes from Tuscan hill. What I love about the Santa Maria perfume is its ancient history since 1221 and story behind the every perfumes. Ginestra fragrance is considered as new perfume though but I love the lightness and fragrance notes. Finally found this incredible perfume in Rome last September which surely become my fragrance for at least 2 – 3 years ahead. If you like classic fragrance, I recommend Acqua di Colonia Vanilla or Acqua di Colonia Rosa.
Some other traveling gear is my fold-able Timberland backpack which I rarely used for now. During traveling I bring my laptop all the time and this backpack is most likely cater me while mobile working besides my other backpack, Qwstion Daypack and Deuter Wizard.
Photo is Arashimaya Lake and I can tell you it is one of the most beautiful scenery while in Japan. I think the bamboo grove is over appreciated and I like it more here because not so many people will go there. I had a nice stroll in great sunny day after lunch that time.
