My Secret Garden

7:30:00 PM

Hey guys...

So on (one of) my birthday celebration (s. I have a few... Will blog about them all ASAP) we got the whole restaurant for ourselves (not that i booked it all or anything like that okay, i'm not that crazy. It still amazes me when some fashion bloggers book an entire venue for outfit posts but i guess if the price is right, why not? LOL. Anyway, the restaurant actually offered to open on Monday *when they're usually closed* when i inquire a booking for 20 people) so i decided to dress up to my heart's desire (nobody except my guests and the staffs to stare at me) and took crazy amount of pictures.

So here's what i wore for that day :
Dress code : flower wreath, you know how crazy i am about them! I decided to wear ethereal, swishy, feminine outfit and go all out *LOL*. 

My normal photographer (hunny) can't concentrate when it's too hot (i guess his brain melts and refuse to work whenever it's too hot) and he'd keep on taking horrible pictures, one after another-and when i complain he'd get upset it's so effing annoying. October and half of November's probably the peak of hotness in Surabaya, it's literally CRAZY (so hot that air conditioners can't even cool us off)-and my bday was on October so... -___-. 

That's totally the case that particular day, thankfully my wonderful friends stepped up and took their turns taking my pictures. I am impressed at how good some of them now! This first 3 set of pictures turns out to be my fave and they're all taken by one of my BFF G-she used to be HORRIBLE in taking pictures!
I mean, if i learn how to edit my pictures, this would definitely pass for something that a professional photog takes :D
She even took it to the next level and told me to pose like this and that hahaha
Since it's such a special day for me (and because i know i want to take LOADS and LOADS of photos), i took extra care for my make too ^^ :

I love the result and it was my bday celebration so please understand why there are so many more camwhoring photos than usual hahaha
I LOVE Color Concept, so cheap yet so good... It's just that they're so hard to find here >.<
Eh, just one more with natural sunlight hehe Love how it makes my eyes (or rather, my contacts) sparkle liddat hahaha
And back to the outfit! Kathy arrived and she forced me to pose in this colorful, rustic looking door. I guess she really has photographer's eyes because the photos turns out so pretty.
Kathy and Sabsab forced me to pose like this and i was so sure that i would look crazy, but look! LOVE IT! Kathy, take more photos of me please! LOL
Lots of pretty looking stairs for photo shoots too hehehe
The only nice pic that hunny managed to get of me that day hahahaha

Seriously you guys, Caprnentier has so many pretty nooks and corners to take outfit photos at... But they seem to be quite full most of the time so if you're shy like me... LOL
Oh, did i mention that it's actually both hunny and i's birthday celebration? LOL. Poor guys, as they got older their bdays seem to matter less and less, i'm not sure most of the guests even know it was his bday celebration too :p.
Had to drag him to take this outfit post because he was too busy trying to cool himself by downing bottles of sodas (a rare one called "Badak" *it's rhinoceros in Indonesian btw LOL*) -___-
I absolutely love the photos! Hopefully i'd get more opportunities to take such elaborate and pretty outfit pics in the future *doubt it, too lazy*. Okay, gotta work on the actual celebration post now, toodles!
