By November 26, 2014 Wishlist

Nike loves black and white and her friends kinda associated her with that palette. While I obsessed with cute stationeries since I was a little girl. So we think why not combined both things that we like and create a black and white stationery wishlist for this November!



1. Customized sketchbook A5, Rp55.000, Skylight Projects
Based in Yogyakarta, Skylight offer hard cover book with their own doodles for the cover. But you can also order a notebook or sketchbook with your own cover design! Available in 2 sizes, A4 and A5 with price ranging from Rp40.000-65.000.

2. “You’re Weird, I Like Weird” Greeting Card, Rp35.000, The Little Talks via bobobobo.com
This monochrome greeting card with a not-so-ordinary quote bring smile to my face. Perfect as a gift card for besties with whom we can be weird together. :D

3. Javan Rhinos Set, Rp60.000-125.000, Lestari
Capturing the exquisite forms of the animals and plants originated from Indonesia, Lestari provides a broad range of adorable patterns like Sumatran Tiger, Orangutan, Javan Rhino, Rafflesia Arnoldii, and Amophophallus. Product ranging from mini to big pouch and pencilcase. They ship worldwide and also available at Alun-alun Indonesia and Zalora.

4. MT Olle Eksel Cirkus, Rp48.000, Gudily
Well, this isn’t really black and white item but hey, grey is a closed relative of black, right? Right? :p Hope you’re agree with me because this MT tape is too cute to not be included in this wishlist. It’s not the usual circus theme that interpreted in colorful ilustrations. It picks grey as the base color and a bit red-yellow-green as accent. You can use it to decorate your notebook.

Did you know that Indonesia is the third largest producer of cocoa beans?

Yes, Indonesia. Not Switzerland. Or Belgium. Both country, well-known for their delicacy in chocolate products, can’t produce Cocoa because the cacao tree can only grown in a tropical climate, between 10ºN and 10ºS of the Equator.. The largest producing countries are Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, and Indonesia. We provides about 16 percents of global cocoa production. Data from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said that Indonesia produced 574 thousand tons of cocoa in 2010. Currently, Indonesia cocoa production reached 809 thousand tons. (source: http://perkebunan.litbang.pertanian.go.id).

That’s just an interesting fact that we found out during our Whimsical Garden workshop preparation 3 weeks ago. Irvan, one of the two siblings who co-founded Pipiltin Cocoa says that although we’re a large chocolate producing country, when it comes to chocolate processing Indonesia fell behind from other countries. “Indonesia has lots of good quality cocoa beans. Why not make use of it? Why sell it abroad and then buy an imported chocolate instead?”. That’s why he and his sister Tissa open Pipiltin a year ago. They sources their chocolate from local cacao plantation like Pidie Jaya, Aceh, and Tabanan, Bali. The Pidie Jaya’s chocolate has more intensity and a hint of tobacco aroma, while the fruity flavor with bright acidity is the main character of Tabanan cocoa. They also made chocolate bar that made from cocoa beans harvested in Glenmore, Banyuwangi. But the Tabanan chocolate is the highlighted varians for now.

Saat memulai Living Loving, kami berdua berbekal kamera pocket masing-masing. Miranti dengan Canon PowerShot S90 dan saya dengan Canon PowerShot S95. Iya, kami memang suka terlalu kompak. Selain anak kami lahirnya berdekatan, kamera kami pun tipenya sama. Hanya beda satu generasi aja. Padahal nggak janjian lho belinya.

Kami suka sekali dengan kamera ini. Awalnya saya sempat agak kagok, karena sebelumnya saya memakai Canon S5IS Canon G12 di mana banyak fungsinya bisa dioperasikan melalui tombol dan layarnya bisa diputar. Namun ukuran S95 yang lebih kecil dan ringan bikin saya nggak menyesal. Kamera ini sering saya bawa ke mana-mana. Mayoritas foto untuk konten di blog ini pun memakai kamera pocket kami berdua.
