Menginap gratis di Hotel / Free Stay at Hotel in Bali and others

Free Hotel to stay! Who doesn't want it! But it is real and I have tried it. It's very useful and saves my money when travelling. What you need is only smart phone and credit card.


Nginap di hotel gratis! Siapa sih yang ga mau! Tapi ini beneran dan sudah dibuktikan sendiri. Berguna banget dan hemat uang pas lagi jalan-jalan. Yang kamu perlukan cuma smart phone dan credit card.




The answer is Hotel Quickly. It is an application you can download on your smart phone via Google Play or Apple Store. If you ever heard or used Agoda/Booking app, this one is similar, but there is a reason why they named it Quickly because it can only be used to book a room for today or tomorrow with maximum 5 nights. The area is also limited, only for Asia and Australia. (The screen capture is using IOS so it might be a bit different if you're using Android)


Jawabannya adalah Hotel Quickly. Aplikasi yang bisa didownload di smart phone via Google Play atau Apple Store. Kalau kamu pernah menggunakan aplikasi Agoda/Booking, yang ini juga sejenisnya, tapi ada alasan kenapa namanya Quickly soalnya aplikasi ini cuma bisa digunakan untuk booking kamar pada hari ini atau besok dengan maksimum 5 malam. Areanya juga terbatas, hanya di sekitar Asia dan Australia saja. (Screen capture menggunakan IOS jadi mungkin sedikit berbeda dengan Android)



Hotels



On Hotels tab, there are many countries you can choose where to stay, but it is limited to Asia and Australia only. Still, it's very useful for me. I chose Bali (Kuta/Legian/Seminyak) and there are already free hotels for me! Please noted that to get a free stay, you have to use your first credit and pay minimum USD 15 (IDR 186.450) the first time you book. After that you can experience free night.


Pada tab Hotels, ada banyak pilihan negara yang bisa dipilih sesuai tempat tujuanmu, tapi masih terbatas di Asia dan Australia saja. Tetap saja berguna banget buat aku. Aku pilih Bali (Kuta/Legian/Seminyak) dan sudah ada banyak hotel gratis menanti! Tolong dicatat untuk dapat menginap gratis, kamu harus memakai credit pertamamu dan membayar minimum USD 15 (IDR 186.450) waktu booking pertama kali. Setelah itu baru bisa menikmati gratisnya.



Bookings


On Bookings tab, you can see your previous bookings, either it is succeed or cancelled by the system. Sometimes it happened, all you need to do is try again. The one showed is my first booking with Hotel Quickly to stay at Artotel Surabaya. 

IDR 911.525 (IDR 455.762,5/night x 2 nights) - credit IDR 725.075 (maximum credit I can use even though I have IDR 1.000.000 credit) = minimum charge 15 USD (IDR 186.450)
SUPER CHEAP FOR 2 NIGHTS!
So the minimum charge was only applied at the first night, and the second night is totally FREE. Even though you have credit IDR 1.000.000, you still have to pay the minimum charge which only applied at your first booking. 


Pada tab Bookings, yang bisa dilihat adalah bookingan sebelumnya, entah itu berhasil atau gagal dari sistem. Kadang bisa terjadi, jadi silahkan coba lagi kalau gagal. Yang ditunjukkan di atas adalah bookingan pertamaku menggunakan Hotel Quickly di Artotel Surabaya.

IDR 911.525 (IDR 455.762,5/malam x 2 malam) - credit IDR 725.075 (kredit maksimum yang bisa dipakai walaupun punya kredit hingga IDR 1.000.000) = biaya minimum 15 USD (IDR 186.450)
MURAH BANGET BUAT 2 MALAM!
Jadi biaya minimum hanya dikenakan pada malam pertama saja, malam kedua terhitung GRATIS. Walaupun punya kredit IDR 1.000.000, tetap biaya minimum dikenakan karena merupakan bookingan pertama. 



Share & Credits


On Share tab, you can see your personal invite code (My code is JLIAN9 and you can use it). This is unique code that you can share to your friends so your friends can get IDR 170.000 credit (can only be used once per account), and as thank you, you get IDR 10.000 each time your friend redeems your code. Win win solution right! 
Beside that, you can get IDR 60.000 by sharing it with twitter and facebook (first time only). The others are making it easier to share to your friends via mail or sms beside facebook and twitter.

On Credits tab, you can see the sum of your credits and additional discount. Click ADD / REDEEM to redeem any code you have to get additional credit.


Pada tab Share, dapat dilihat kode undangan pribadi (Kodeku adalah JLIAN9 dan bisa kamu pakai loh). Ini adalah kode unik yang bisa kamu bagikan ke teman-teman supaya temanmu bisa mendapat credit sebesar IDR 170.000 (hanya bisa digunakan sekali saja pada setiap akun), dan sebagai rasa terima kasih, kamu juga mendapat IDR 10.000 setiap kali temanmu menukar kodemu. Win win solution right!
Selain itu, kamu bisa mendapat IDR 60.000 dari sharing ke twittern dan facebook (berlaku pertama kali saja ya). Yang lain berguna buat share ke teman via email atau sms selai facebook dan twitter.

Pada tab Credits, kamu bisa melihat jumlah kredit yang kamu punya beserta diskon tambahan. Bisa klik ADD / REDEEM untuk menukar kode yang kamu punya sebagai tambahan kredit.




If you click SEE DETAILS on Credits tab, you can see all the credits you have along with the expired date. Beware of this or you can loose your credits! Better use it for free night rather than it flies away..

Kalau kamu klik SEE DETAILS dari tab Credits, kamu bisa melihat semua kredit yang kamu punya beserta tanggal hangusnya. Hati-hati dengan ini atau nanti kreditmu hilang! Lebih baik dipakai untuk menginap gratis daripada terbang begitu saja.



How to Book 


You can choose the hotel you want from the choices they provide only because you can't pick your own hotel like Agoda which has unlimited choices. Again, because of the Quickly, so it helps you when you need a hotel in a quick time. From what I see it is limited to about 10 hotels choices per area. But you don't have to worry, they are already the best hotels (they claimed that their team already stayed at the hotels to experienced it before they put it in the app). Tips: If you are confused, just shake your phone and they will choose one for you.

After choosing a hotel, you can slide to the right and down to see the details of the hotel (photos, location, facilities, reviews, peta lokasi, etc).


Kamu bisa memilih hotel dari pilihan-piihan yang tersedia saja karena tidak bisa seperti Agoda yang pilihannya tidak terbatas. Sekali lagi, karena namanya Quickly, jadi diutamakan untuk membantu pada saat membutuhkan hotel dalam waktu cepat. Dari yang aku lihat ada sekitar maksimal 10 pilihan hotel per area. Tapi tidak usah khawatir, hotel-hotel yang tersedia sudah pilihan terbaik (mereka mengklaim kalau team mereka sudah tinggal dan mencoba hotel-hotel tersebut sebelum memasukkannya di aplikasi). Tips: Kalau kamu bingung, goyangkan saja smart phone-mu dan mereka akan memilihkan satu untuk kamu.

Setelah memilih hotel, kamu bisa geser ke kanan dan ke bawah untuk melihat detil hotel tersebut (foto, lokasi, fasilitas, review, peta lokasi, dll)




Don't forget to choose the day (limited to today or tomorrow only) and how many nights you want (maximum 5 nights). After clicking CONFIRM, there are only 4 steps away to finish your booking. First, you can choose credits you want to use (they automatically use all your credits here, so to save up you have to be very careful here), and you can see the price is changed because there is tax added.

After that click CONTINUE, complete your guest details, and payment (credit card or paypal only), and done. Just wait for email and sms confirmation from Hotel Quickly. Just show the email to the receptionist to check in to the hotel. You can also edit your profile and payment details at Settings tab to quicker booking.

DONE! HAPPY HOLIDAY AND HAPPY STAYING AT HOTELS!!!
DON'T FORGET TO REDEEM MY CODE JLIAN9
TO GET IDR 170.000 CREDIT FOR FREE!


Jangan lupa untuk menentukan hari (terbatas hanya hari ini dan besok saja) dan berapa malam kamu ingin menginap (maksimum 5 malam). Setelah klik CONFIRM, tinggal 4 langkah saja untuk menyelesaikan bookingan. Pertama, kamu bisa memilih kredit yang ingin digunakan (biasanya secara otomatis semua kredit akan dipilih, jadi untuk menghemat kamu harus berhati-hati disini), dan kamu bisa lihat kalau harga berubah adalah karena ada pajak yang ditambahkan.

Setelah itu klik CONTINUE, lengkapi data diri, dan pembayaran (pilihan credit card atau paypal saja). Tunggu email dan sms konfirmasi dari Hotel Quickly. Tunjukkan email ke resepsionis untuk check in ke hotel. Kamu juga bisa mengubah profil dan detil pembayaran di tab Settings untuk booking lebih cepat.

SELESAI! SELAMAT BERLIBUR DAN SELAMAT MENGINAP GRATIS!!!
JANGAN LUPA TUKARKAN KODE JLIAN9

Review: Revive Lash (Serum Pelentik Bulu Mata)


Hi, Are you ready to welcome New Year 2015? This will be my super last post in 2014. Anyway I'll review this product in Indonesian.

Beberapa waktu lalu, KBJ (Kawaii Beauty Japan) memberikan kesempatan untuk mencoba produk dari Jepang, yaitu Revive Lash. Penasaran banget sama produk semacam ini karena di Indonesia sendiri belum ada yang bikin seperti ini, serum untuk melentikkan bulu mata. Mungkin karena bulu mata orang Indonesia banyak yang sudah lentik-lentik. Tetapi sayangnya I'm not one of them, so... I really need this!


Rahasia bulu mata lebih lentik sekarang bisa didapatkan dengan mudah dan tidak berbahaya, dengan memakai serum maka hasil lebih sehat dan lebih alami dibanding dengan extension dan sebagainya.


Revive Lash adalah serum bulu mata dengan empat manfaat:
1. Memanjangkan Bulu Mata 
2. Menebalkan Helai Bulu Mata 
3. Memperkuat Bulu Mata agar Tidak Gampang Rontok 
4. Menghitamkan Bulu Mata 
Tidak perlu khawatir karena Revive Lash merupakan perawatan untuk bulu mata dan tidak ada efek samping.



Waktu Pemakaian:
Pagi hari sebelum menggunakan makeup dan malam hari sebelum tidur dalam keadaan mata bersih.

Berapa Lama Pemakaian Hingga Menghasilkan Efek?
10 hari pemakaian

Amankah Bagi Wanita Hamil dan Menyusui?
Aman, akan tetapi jika diperlukan sebaiknya dikonsultasikan ke dokter

Berapa Lama Produk Ini Dapat Dipakai?
3 bulan setelah kemasan dibuka

Apabila Bulu Mata Dipakaikan Eyelash Extension, Apakah Boleh Memakai Revive Lash?
Ya, tapi extension perlahan-lahan akan rontok (bukan bulu mata asli)

Jika Bulu Mata Dikeriting Permanen, Apakah Bisa Memakai Revive Lash?
Bisa dan tidak ada efek samping





Cara Pemakaian Revive Lash:

[Sponsored] Review: A-TRUE Starter Kit


Hi, how are you? It's been a very busy week for me. A bit late to publish this post. However, I want to share review about this cute starter kit I got from Jolse. If you haven't heard, Jolse is a website for Korean cosmetics and skincare which offer free worldwide shipping and free gifts for every purchase. Awesome right!

What unique about this is, I haven't heard about this brand before, A·TRUE. It's new to me and I really want to try it especially when I love tea scent. It's calming and refreshing for me. I'm really happy when I can try this A·TRUE starter kit.




A·TRUE is the True brand represented from “a cup of the finest black tea.” 
The ‘Compagnie Coloniale’ brand is the First and Oldest premium black tea brand in France - it delivers absolute value.

A·TRUE presents “True Personal Care,” with its unique textures and outstanding benefits, 
all of which are formulated with various prescribed blends, proven to be very valuable in France for the past 200 years.

Here at A·TRUE, we wish to revive the Premium Beauty of the 17th Century European Royal Courts. 
We aim to have our customers experience lavish lifestyles and exquisite teas and to have them transported back in time via a single sip.




It is really classy to look at this. Reminds me a lot with tea can which is usually filled with dried tea leaves. The color, font, and the design is elegant, very European style. I will definitely use it for something after emptying it, maybe for a brush holder?




First time opening it, and you can see the net bag with A·TRUE logo on it. I'm surprised by the amazing fragrance that came out from inside the can. It smells really great, strong tea scent. You will know where it came from, soon.





This is where the tea scent came from. Two Earl Grey Tea bags. I haven't drunk it, but I bet it is a good tea. Soon I'll post on my instagram when I make the tea.




Take a peek! At the bottom, there are 3 mini size bottles and a pack of samples (12 pcs for exact). 




What's inside!





MINI SIZE



3 pcs Mini Size:
-Sweet Song Black Tea One-step Cleansing Water (20ml)
-White Snow Tea Brilliant Essence (20ml)
-Black Tea All Day Long Sun Cream (10g)



-White Snow Tea Brilliant Essence (20ml) - left
It prevents over-production of melanin while illuminating the skin to reveal a radiant complexion.

Review:
This essence is stunning because it's unique, something I've never tried before. The illuminating particles, if looked closely, it is like very soft and small glitters. I've seen it in powder, highlighter, blush, BB cream, most of them are make up, but never find it in skincare. Koreans like this kind of thing because illuminating and glowing skin is adored. 
I like to use it for special occasion as base make up. It soften my skin and makes it look glowing. Fast absorbed and smells good.


-Black Tea All Day Long Sun Cream (10g) - right
The sun protection brilliantly defends your skin against both UVA/UVB, as well as environmental elements.

Review:
I'm happy that it is SPF 50. Always need high protection because I live near the beach. It is white and the texture is creamy but not too thick. It spreads and absorbed nicely but still a bit heavy for me, because it is a bit sticky and needs time to be absorbed. It smells good though, I prefer to use it on a 'not so hot days' or apply powder after. I prefer the sun gel because it is lighter.





-Sweet Song Black Tea One-step Cleansing Water (20ml)
Effectively removes daily makeup, impurities, and even eye and lip makeup without any burning or irritating feelings.

Review:
It is a small transparent bottle, compact enough for travelling. I always love minis for my travelling. The texture is watery because it is cleansing water, which is lighter and easier to use compared to cleansing oil (no need to wash off). The scent is a little bit of floral scent, it's mild, I like it. It can remove make up nicely without being too harsh to the skin, it works great, with only one swipe I can almost remove all of the makeup. Recommended for sensitive skin because it's mild and doesn't irritate the skin at all.



SAMPLES (@2ml)


-Rose Petal Black Tea Enriching Toner
The Essential Toner smoothly absorbs into the skin, delivering deep hydration to maintain a relaxed and moist skin.

-Rose Petal Black Tea Enriching Moisturizer

-Darjeeling Black Tea First Anti-wrinkle Essence
Smooth and soft textures help in quick absorption acting as a solution to the empty spots of the dermis and epidermis helping elevate the resilience of the skin.

-Darjeeling Black Tea First Anti-wrinkle Cream
Moisturizing Complex and Hydrating Factors help in maintaining natural skin moisture to balance and reduce the first signs of ageing.

The daily sun gel helps refresh your skin, giving it a more radiant look.

-Himalaya Black Tea Moist Deep Cream
The smooth whip cream texture quickly absorbs and delivers both moisture and nutrition into the skin.



Review (White Snow Tea Brilliant toner, essence, aurora cream):
I haven't tried all the samples, but I've tried the White snow series which is the most interesting for me. There is the bigger size of the essence and I've tried it so I'd like to try the set in samples. 

Toner: It is like clear water, smells really good, tea scent mixed with floral scent. It absorbed nicely and soften my skin.

Essence: (Reviewed it previously)

Cream: The cream is thick, way thicker than the essence. I just use it in small amount because it's enough for my whole face and I don't want to get too sticky and glittery. The cream has more illuminating particles than the essence, it is more visible (like purple pink illuminating particles). I like the essence more because it's lighter and enough for summer.



Overall,

It's worth to try the whole set because we can try many variants before buying and I love love the packaging and the idea, it's just so sweet. Especially for the tea bag.
For the skincare, most of them are concentrating to moist and anti wrinkle, none for troubled skin. Seeing the kit, I said it suits for people with normal dry skin and early aging skin.
Not only skincare, there is also cleansing water which I like so much, this is very useful.

Review: Anna Gaspi Placenta Skincare

Hellow! Long time no see. I've been so busy. Finally can take some time to write a post.

Few months ago I got these skincare set from Anna Gaspi. So lucky me!

Description
What is Vegetal Placenta?

Vegetal Placenta or Plant placenta is the natural substance found under the pistil of flowers. Plant placenta has an extraordinary regenerating of nourishing fruits when they are formed. The anti-aging skincare product as well as anti-aging nutritional supplements are made with the vegetal placentas which are non-genetically modified plants including legumes, soybean, beech buds and etc. We are using soybean which is rich in amino acids, protein, peptides, mineral salts and soluble sugars and etc. These amino acids share the rejuvenating effects on skin that animal placenta offers. They stimulate the skin’s natural turn-over of cells and the synthesizing of collagen. A good collagen matrix in the skin is what holds skin together and prevents wrinkles and sags from occurring. These are the natural base for skin youth.

Importantly, dermatology testing has been done on plant placenta that shows a lot of promise. In a study out of Croix Rousse Hospital in Lyons, France, researchers found that plant placenta significantly improved dry, flaky, wrinkled skin from illness or aging; stimulated hair follicles to grow new hair; and exhibited a high tolerance to its use.Their research also showed that skin cells uptake of oxygen increased 70% with the plant placenta.


What are Benefits of Vegetal Plant Placenta Skincare Products?

Following is the list of benefits that are considered to be provided by the anti-aging skin care products made with vegetal plant placenta.
- Skin regeneration
- Reduction of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks that already exist on skin.
- Prevention of blemishes, scars, stretch marks, etc.
- Long-lasting miniaturization of skin.
- Lightening of facial pigmentation.
- Glowing skin
- Finer skin texture with more evenly toned colour.
- Improvement of skin elasticity and thickness.

Our product provides efficient effects on treating major type of different skin problems as follow:
- Whitening, Freckles, Hyperpigmentation
- Wrinkles, Rejuvenate, Restoration
- Acne, Pore minimizing, Scar healing
- Blackhead scar, Burn skin
- Stretch mark, Cellulite



AG Placenta W Cleansing Foam



It has tube packaging. Quiet big because it has 210ml, I can use it for months. 

The texture is quiet dense but not so thick. With small amount, I can use it for all my face because it can turn into rich lather. The scent is soft, it has floral scent I think and I like it because it's not too strong. Softer than the toner and serum.

The result, it makes my skin soft and supple, not oily but not drying either. I love the result!




AG Placenta Intensive Toner



It's a doff plastic bottle but thicker than usual bottle, and it has a plastic cap for the pump. Not many toner using pump and I like it because it is more hygienic.

The texture is just like water, transparent and not thick at all. The scent is similar with the foam but stronger. A bit too strong for my liking if I use it too much.

It makes my skin soft and moist but I have to wait a few seconds before applying other skincare. I have normal dry skin and I can say this product suits well more for dry skin.



AG Placenta Intensive Ampoule



Ampoule always comes in a glass bottle with pipette. It is quiet small, only 20ml. But one or two drops is enough for my whole face, psstt..  I have small face, so lucky me.

The texture is like water but thicker and still runny. It absorbs fast into the skin. It smells good, lighter than the toner and serum.

It feels moisturizing even though not as moist as the serum because it sinks faster but still makes my skin soft and supple. The ampoule is for morning use only. After ampoule, we can add emulsion or cream, but sometimes I don't use any other cream if the weather is too hot or just add some sunblock. 



AG Placenta Intensive Serum





The bottle is really similar with the toner, made from thick plastic and has pump, too. The unique thing is, this is a transparent bottle but it looks white when it's still full, once you use it, the bottom part inside will going up and than you can see the transparent bottle.

The texture is denser than others but still runny and spread easily, takes longer time to absorbed. The color is milky white, a little bit transparent. It smells the same like the toner. 

Even though it's not thick but it's very moisturizing. This is for night use and without cream, by using this only, it can keep my skin moisturized for a whole night. Really good if you have dry skin.



Overall

I love the set, it suit my normal dry skin well because it is really moisturizing. 
The scent is nice even though for toner and serum is a bit too strong if I'm using it too much. They have similar scent one another.
It makes my skin soft, moist and supple. I don't have trouble skin, so I'm not sure about the effect because I heard this brand is really good for troubled skin. But for me, I think my skin condition is nicer with it feels soft on skin.
