One of the perks about living overseas, especially in developing countries is that there are formal black tie events that we can afford to go to. There are many balls in Jakarta throughout a year. Just the ones I know, there are 6. They are not cheap to buy tickets for, but if you go to a ball with friends, it’s really fun. I especially enjoy getting dressed up to go to the event. I thought about getting my hair done and get manicure and pedicure done as well, but my second child got sick, so I didn’t feel like leaving my family for a couple of hours for that, so I fixed my hair myself and painted my nails. It’s okay. I am just happy that I was able to go to the ball.
I purchased this dress 2 years ago online. I was going to wear it to a ball, but it didn’t arrive on time. It fit tight on my body 2 years ago, but after a pregnancy, I could no longer fit in it, so I had it altered. I’m glad I was able to make the money worth this year. I have one more dress that I never wore, but I can’t fit in any longer. The gap is so big that it cannot be altered. Too bad.

I hope you had a lovely weekend.
