This is not a lifestyle blog.



It's a journal with no niche, that talks about anything and everything in between. The cat behind Mlkbx is a fan of pop culture, books, 3 am thoughts and conspiracy theories. Everything written here are meant to be raw, unfiltered and as is. Enjoy your stay or click the x button on your browser.
I tend to not like birthdays, except for the part where I can stuff my face with cakes. So really, the thought of turning twenty three kind of drives me insane. Having my age increased by one seems to have fueled the already existing messy thoughts I've had since taking a break. Now, this post isn't about getting myself wasted on my birthday. It's about some revelations and thoughts I've had before finally reaching this point.
I'm back to reading books again. After experiencing months of reading slum due to how confusing Nova Ren Suma's The Walls Around Us was, I finally find it in me to start reading again. I realized that the more books I add into my to be read cart, the more picky I've become. I've always been a picky reader but now, I'm even pickier if that's even possible. So to celebrate the rebirth of my bookworm spirit, let me list down a few things found in fictions today that are guaranteed to turn me off. If a book contains any of the tropes I'm about to talk about, chances are I'm going to stray away before even trying it out unless of course, my favorite booktuber convinced me to do otherwise.
You know that feeling when you want to blog but your mind is empty and you don't know what to write about? Yet that feeling of missing one's blog space lingers; that feeling of wanting to pour something down because your blog is the perfect place to be a little personal but still stay discreet and secretive? This is that kind of post.
Alright, let's talk something all women experience monthly. Aunt flow is probably every woman's favourite aunt who comes bearing a monthly gift to confirm whether or not we are safe for another month to come. The relationship, however, is a complex one. We resent the times when she's around but stress over it when she doesn't pay us a visit. One common worry I believe most women share is the thought of us getting pregnant. Of course, it's an exciting possibility if you are actually waiting to be a mother. But to those who don't? It's a living nightmare. 
Happy Wednesday, earthlings! I've been taking a break from blogging in general for a week because I wasn't in the mood to do anything other than catch up with my video games and tv series throughout Ramadhan break. Speaking of Ramadhan, Happy Eid Mubarak to those who celebrate it. Since I don't celebrate it, the only thing I can tell you about is pretty much an empty shell — unless you count random life updates as something . Until I find the mood to actually blog properly again, let's just do the random rambles and moodboard mapping.
One of the most common questions I often get besides what it means to be a user experience designer is why I chose to work for a startup company as opposed to an established corporate with a very intricate hierarchy level. To the older generation, the thought of working in a startup company is anything but great. To them, startup companies do not pay as well as big corporations do. While salary is something relative fueled by stupid stereotypes, I'm here to report to you that I am someone who prefers working in a startup.
My second experience at Museum Macan, a moden and contemporary art museum located in west Jakarta. This time, it's an exhibition solely dedicated to Yayoi Kusama, a Japanese contemporary artist known for her eccentric sense of art. Her works are mostly based on conceptual art with attributes in feminism, minimalism, surrealism, abstract art, pop art and abstract expression mixed with autobiographical, psychological and sexual content. Known for her Infinity Mirrored Rooms and signature obsession for dots, the 'Life is The Heart of A Rainbow' exhibition feature over 130 of Kusama's artworks spanning from 1950 throughout and explores the development of her iconic themes and interconnections through her career.
A photogenic, recently opened soft serve ice cream parlor located in the north part of Jakarta, FRED is sure to catch the attention of anyone who stroll around the sunny area of Pantai Indah Kapuk looking for something sweet to beat the heat. Unlike most shops in the area, FRED is one that captivates Instagram enthusiasts and young influencers through its use of high glass windows, concrete entrance ground and perfect white interior.
I seldom talk about beauty stuff but when I do, they are and will be the things I swear by. Famous for its natural ingredients and fragrance-free options, Cosrx defines minimalism for skincare. Their 'less is more' ideology is what makes their products great and receive a cult following. In fact, one of my beauty goals is to try almost every single Cosrx product available in their collection. As of now, I've tried six products and will share them with you.
