Current Eye Candy I Drool Over: Kate Spade

As I work in a formal environment, I tend to play safe in my business attire. No solid color allowed, at least for my suits, bag and accessories.  Therefore I can blame my beloved cousin Dita and best friend Cici for making me breaking my own rule. I checked Kate Spade web store after they mention about this brand. FYI,  Kate Spade is known for her joyful style. I spotted one bright-tiny-purse then I couldn’t help but to keep eyeing this beautiful wallet.  It surely add a dash of joy to my outfit. To be honest, 51USD is out of my budget for a purse. Is it wrong to ask an early birthday present?

(not) Disappointed

I failed to deliver one single posting yesterday. My goal for having consistent post every single day failed. It was not because I don’t have any idea to write about. Yesterday all of my internet accesses went down. Indosat Mentari, Indosat IM2, Smartfren.. 😦

update: hey! Apparently WordPress saved my post in 2012/06/21, dated on the draft I made. Yay! Status: not disappointed anymore 😀

Another Check List

It’s been a little while since I’ve done my self-note, so I thought today would be a great opportunity to share a new thing that stumbled upon while having conversation with my husband.

  1. Don’t forget to let your bank know that you’re going to go overseas. Inform them! Especially if you have never go abroad before. Bank’s policy might block your account from being used out of your country.
  2. The rule is applied to your credit card also. Call the issuer bank to notify that there might be an unusual transaction coming to their authorization message.
  3. Check your telecommunication provider regarding international roaming. I currently am using Indosat prepaid as my cellular number. Last week I visited the customer service counter at Mal Ambasador. According to the officer, there is nothing I have to sign to activate the feature. I still can receive any call, do the call, send short message. All transactions are charged international roaming, though.

There are steps you have to do:

  • To ensure you get promo rate, do these before leaving (only for Blackberry):

Click Manage Connection > Mobile Network Option > Network Selection Mode Manual >  Choose No in Select Automatic Mode When Manually Selected Network Is Not Available. Note: don’t click YES or PROMPT since the network will automatically choose the stronger signal (maybe not Indosat partner that will cause any additional charge applied)

  • Minimum balance is 50K rupiahs
  • If you choose to not using data services while you’re abroad, deactivate the network by clicking Options > Mobile Network On > Data Service Off when/while Roaming. Make sure you’re log out from ALL application you use (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn)
  • You still can use Wifi
  • Check your balance: click *555# (free of charge)
  • Bear in mind that operator name appeared not always same as the operator name.
