Online Shopping on China’s biggest website Taobao

taobao dresses, red dress, black dress, online dress shoppin is such a hot online shopping mall for young people in China. Everywhere we went, we heard about how prices are cheaper on Taobao, and how everything can be found on

Sure enough, we tried our luck on and found a few items. Check out the black dress we bought here.

Curious as us, we did a bit research about and found:

Approximately 90% of online transactions in China are executed on Alibaba-owned Taobao, frequently described as the “eBay of China.”

According to a research did by Goldman Sache, Taobao will take over EBay to be the biggest online shopping website in the world by 2015.

2015 is fast approaching. Estimates and studies often get themselves wrong.The Mayas had their fair share about the end of the world in 2012. How will this 2015 prediction pan out? Let’s wait and see.

However, is sure very popular in China and growing strongly every year. How the game will be played out between Taobao and EBay? Very interesting.

The Most Popular Reality Dating TV show in China – What are your wearing today?

reality show, dating tv show, china no. 1 dating tv show, reality tv

We had a lot of fun watching the China Reality Dating Show ‘If you are the one’ during our China trip. We were more interested in watching what the young people are wearing in China, and this dating show gave us a glimpse of that.

Reality shows are very popular in China these days, many copied the popular reality shows from the US. In the US, we have so many reality shows, for many things.

Kim Kardashian even has a reality TV show while she is pregnant. Having a baby while working under the spotlight, that must put some stress on the baby in the tummy? Kim should get her nursery rhymes ready instead, don’t you think?

Anyways, that’s how Kim Kardashian gets famous. BTW, we love how Kim dressed up as Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt last Valentine’s Day. She looks stunning.

So back to the dating business: what are your wearing to a first date? What are people wearing to a date show in the USA?

Let’s see the differences between the China dating show and the USA dating show, shall we?

Are you travel ready this Christmas – Casual Christmas Outfits

long flight holiday

Long flights could be hard especially for the little ones. This winter, where are you going to spend your Christmas?

Lots of the expats in Jakarta are getting ready to fly!

To America.

To France.

To Sweden.

To Australia!

Are you travel ready this Christmas? What have you packed in your suit cases? Even if you are not traveling, what are you planning to wear this Christmas?

We love dresses, the fancier the dress the better. Little woman’s dream.

But it didn’t work sometime. You see, most of the time, we are invited to attend family gatherings where wearing casual outfits are the best.

We certainly don’t want to go to a picnic in the park with our fancy dress, let alone sitting on the grass with it. Or how about a beach-side barbecue dinner? Can you image wearing high heels and hot red lips standing among the smoke? Oh, no. We can’t do that. Not with the children in sight.

So we found a few items and through together a casual yet stylish outfit for this Christmas, just for you, and with affordable prices.

Actually, we haven’t got around to do that either (CHECKING THE AFFORDABLE PRICES, that is), because we have a dinner party to attend. A casual one, of course, in a cozy Jakarta home!

So see you tomorrow.

Meanwhile you can check a few of our fancy dresses here while planning a more practical travel outfit for the flight!

Love. D

Turtle Neck and Hoodies – What we bought this month

hoodies and tops for winter American Eagle

Hi, happy Friday, dear readers,

Can’t believe it is the last day of Nov, and we are only 25 days away from Christmas. Are you excited?

We have a big trip to make to the winter land (actually Miss D will have to make two trips as she will go with her Honours choir to China in early Feb next year). Since we live in sunny hot Jakarta, you wouldn’t expect us to have any winter clothing, would you?

Actually, we do have a few winter items that we can wear. Shows how good a planner Mrs. D is, she just knew that we would need them on a rainy winter’s day.

Well, our winter clothes are still not quite enough, and it is always fun to shop for more anyway. So here’s what we bought for our trip:

A pale white coloured hoodie by Junk Food. On sale for USD 40, down from USD 80.

A grey hoodie by Aerie for American Eagle. USD 49.99.

A grey turtle neck long sleeve top . On sale for USD 19,99, down from USD 39.99.

Pretty boring, right?

Ambitious as we are, we dress in a conventional way. Especially for winter clothes, we stick to our grey, beige, black, brown. You know, the safe colours.

But every story has its twist, a bit of a complication, a bait, that keeps the readers coming back…

Well, is this a writer’s 101 post? It sure sounds like one now. 😀

So our twist is like this:


Actually, it is Friday and we have a dinner party to attend tonight. Soz, no time to finish the writing. Can you come back tomorrow?

We will finish whatever is needed tomorrow, if we get over our hung over, that is. Promise. (seriously, this is NOT the twist, OK. The twist is due out tomorrow!)

Good night, and see you soon.

Christmas Dress – Golden Dress

holiday dress, christmas dress, gold dress, fashion online, woman boutique fashion online

Diamond is a girl’s best friend. How about gold? Not a bad friend either, we hope.

This holiday, why not add some glitter and glamor to your wardrobe. Gold is a must have colour in any girls wardrobe this Christmas. It will transform any ordinary day into a magical fairytale in no time. Gold will bring your luck. Maybe you will even meet Mr. Right in that shiny armor of gold? Gold can enchant and soften the most stubborn heart.

Nicole Kidman, Cleopatra, Merilyn Monroe have all dressed up in gold before our time. Gold is what legends are made of.

We love gold, not in a cheap way though. Gold can actually look cheap if not dressed properly. It needs a bit of personality and charm to match its grand status. Are you ready for gold this Christmas?

We have picked a few golden pieces right in time for the Christmas season. Hope you like them.

Christmas Dress – Animal Print Dress For Christmas

nicole kidman animal prints, animal prints dress, christmas dress

It is official: we love animal printed dresses in the D house. How about a Christmas dress in animal prints this Christmas? Again, we turned to our style icon Nicole Kidman for some inspiration.

Oh, no. Nicole, what have you done? This looks so bad. Faded animal printed coat? Makes you look a hundred years old. And the hair? What is going on?

Shows how hard it can be sometimes to dress up in animal printed items. Even our style icon, our beautiful Nicole Kidman can get it wrong. Dangerous territories, ladies. Hati – Hati ( Hati – Hati means be careful in Indonesia languages, and we say this all the time in the D house, especially when driving. :D)

Let’s see what we can do to the rescue of our darling Nicole Kidman. Actually, we find some really nice pictures of Nicole in fancy animal printed dresses. Phew, what a relief. Almost made us dying there just then.

christmas dress, green dress, woman's online fashion, shop online Christmas

Look at this beautiful piece of green animal printed dress. It is elegant, femanile, and stylish. OK, maybe not the shoes. The shoes are a bit over the top. But it is Christmas. We can indulge ourselves a bit, can’t we? Be bold, have a bit more fun, relax and enjoy the extra luxury of the holiday season. Where is that glass of Martini? Let the party begin.

Feel just a bit more in need of that star shine of glamorous? Try the white fur collared coat. It will tranform you into a super star in no time. Besides, it is winter out there. This warm, cosy white fun collared coat is indeed what we need.

And, yes, our Nicole Kidman is back to her normal self now that she is in the right dress. See how much she is enjoying that moment? Is it the green animal printed dress that is doing the magic? We think so.

How about a little black dress for this Christmas? Maybe you have an office party to attend, or maybe you have a formal meeting to head. Whatever the occasion, the little black dress won’t fail you this Christmas.

The little black dress is timeless and eternally stylish. Look at Nicole Kidman, how flattering that little black dress she is wearing on her body? This black dress hit her on all the right spots and make her one fashion icon we admire.

The little black dress is always clean, slim looking and elegant. We can dress it up with an expensive jacket this Christmas. How about this jacket in royal blue color? It adds glamor and charm to our little black dress.

Team these up with a nice, high quality handbag. Gold and pear necklaces. High heels. There, we can conquer the business world in no time with an outfit like this.

Enjoy your Christmas party. And remember, we love the little black dress.

Christmas Dress – Red Dress for Christmas

Christmas red dress, Nicole Kidman red dress, red christmas dress

We love Christmas. It is the best time of the year! Normally, we don’t wear red dresses. Red dresses are too bold, too strong, too stand out. But Santa wears red. Red is beautiful. This Christmas, we will start celebrating with a great piece of Red dress. A stylish, not over the top red dress, OK?

As you know, we love Nicole Kidman. She is Aussie. She is beautiful, tall, elegant, and marries to a hot, hot guy. Oh, we hate her. Just a tiny bit…

Nicole Kidman dresses in many styles. Look at this red dress she puts on, isn’t it gorgeous?

We have found a great red dress for Christmas this year.

It is a Herve Leger Contrast inserts strapless dress. It is a Rayon body con bandage dress featuring contrast color inserts on the front and back and a concealed side zip closure. Strapless. Very body hugging and sexy.

Compliment this great dress with gold and black accessories, bold makeup, and a stunning pair of red high heels.

We can feel that Christmas is coming. How about you?

What are you wearing today?

Nicole Kidman is our favorite Australian actress. We love her dress style. Now that the Christmas party season is upon us, there are so many parties to go to in Jakarta. The Nordic Club Crayfish Party, Gala Latina Blanca, Java St. Andrews Society Charity Ball, to name a few. These are all black tie parties and we need to dress up.

What to wear to go to these parties? Let’s check out some of our favorite party dresses Nicole Kidman wear.

This champion coloured party dress is perfect for the Christmas party. The colour is glamorous.  The necklace is classic, yet the red colour adds a Christmas feel to the whole outfit. Love the shoes, and bag, such a great compliment to the classic dress.

And smile, like Nicole Kidman. This is how we like our Christmas party. Cheerful and glamorous.

Things We Bought In October

We have gone crazy on Halloween this month. Of course, we have to buy a few things for Halloween.

Miss D got her new black witch toy (it makes a scary sound, and its evil eyes will shine once you touch her), her new devil’s mask and her new black witch hat. She is one little happy Halloween enthusiast at the moment.

Look at the black witch and the Babies at the back. How fascinating! Indonesia babies in full traditional costumes, and a black witch. East meets west?

halloween, toys halloween, witch, black witch halloween, craft halloween

Miss D will be the tour guide in her school’s haunted house tonight. For this job, she saved us an entry fee of USD 2. How great!

Mrs D has bought a new dress (OK, she has bought more than one new dress, but this is the one we are going to show you.) You know, the holiday and party season is officially upon us now that we are in November. Why not buy yourself a nice piece before all the other girls rush in? Have you got any ideas for this year’s Christmas gift yet? Hurry up. We are working on ours now.

This dress is by Ralph Lauren. On the official Ralph Lauren website, it is on sell for USD49.99 now. But Mrs D got it for a mere USD 15 from one of the factory outlets in Jakarta.

Factory outlets are a great place to hunt for bargains. Sometimes it can be a hit and miss. We can’t always win. But it is kind of addictive and every now and then, we can find some authentic pieces at bargain prices.

In our bathroom – We love Clearasil and we are using the Clearasil PerfectaWash – an automatic dispenser that provides the perfect amount of cleanser for our face.

In our study –  Miss D is still reading the perfect joke book ‘National Geographic Kids Just Joking: 300 Hilarious Jokes, Tricky Tongue Twisters, and Ridiculous Riddles’. Miss D cannot stop reading it as it is hilarious.

Miss D has also done a 3 minute video for her French Beginner’s class. We don’t know how authentic her French is. Or, does it sound more like English? Why not have a listen for yourself. It’s based on the Simpson’s characters and is a fun to watch. We all love The Simpsons, don’t we? The video will be uploaded soon. So stay tuned.

What are your favorite cartoon characters? Do drop us a line as we love to share a few laughs in the MidNightVisitor’s house.


We are working on our lust list at the moment. Do you have something you really, really want this Christmas? Do drop us a line. We love to hear your stories.

What We Bought This Month?

(Drawing by Miss D)

Miss D’s New Blinkpen

Miss D is in love with her new Blinkpen.

It is her favorite. She can’t stop using it.

She drew stars with it. She drew flowers with it. She drew cute little cats with it.

And, she had drawn a Catress with it (Yep, it is a brown tree trunk with a blue cat’s head. We wonder why.)

She said she is going to use this Blinkpen for her new Poster. It is going to look FANTASTIC. She promises.

‘Now I don’t need to search my pencil case for different colors.’ Miss D said. ‘It is so convenient!’

This blinkpen is fast to get out of her pencil case and can freely change Colors because it is 8 colors in 1. Colors of rainbows plus one, not bad for a little girl like Miss D.

She adores it. She really, really loves it.

The price is reasonable consider the Blinkpen has 8 colors, each color only costs RP 3,000 (About USD 35 cents, 1AUD = 9925 IDR).

Miss D spotted this blinkpen in the shop the other day and grabbed it immediately. Turns out one of her beasties had exactly the same Blinkpen about a year ago and Miss D was so envy and had being dying to have one ever since. Guess it was her lucky day that day when her wish became true.

Her friend actually bought this blinkpen back in Sydney. That’s why we kind of think we cannot find it here in Jakarta.

Well, we are wrong. We found it in Lotte Mart, a supermarket chain here.

It is a small world after all.

                     (Drawing by Miss D)

Do your little ones have any favorite things in their mind? Share with us your stories. We’d like to hear that.

Other Things We Bought

Apart from this Blinkpen, we also went pants shopping for Mr. D this month.

Mrs D has bought a cute IPad case. Her old one is a bit dated and she is in love with her new IPad case.

Mrs D is also setting her eyes on a new pair of cute animal prints sunny. If you have seen one, please send us an email. We’d love to find that pair of perfect sunny for Mrs D.

In our bathroom – At the moment we are using Clearasil PerfectaWash – an automatic dispenser that provides the perfect amount of cleanser for our face.

In our study –  Miss D is reading the perfect joke book ‘National Geographic Kids Just Joking: 300 Hilarious Jokes, Tricky Tongue Twisters, and Ridiculous Riddles’. Miss D cannot stop reading it as soon as she started.

Miss D is also doing a 1 minute video book review for Inkheart by Cornelia Funke, one of her favorite authors. It is one of her English school homework. You will see the video next week some time.

What is your favorite joke book or favorite joke? Do drop us a line as we love to share a few laughs in the MidNightVisitor‘s house.


Ray of sunshine – Mrs D is in love with this Tahitian Maxi in Oceania from frockaholics, It is already sold out. But she will look for something similar. The wedding and party season is upon us and new frocks are an absolute must. What do you think?

Princess in Asia Pacific

Prince William and his wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, have visited Queensland, Australian last week. Spending two hours in Brisbane, a city we have being to for many times when we were in Sydney.

Queensland is such a nice place for holidays. Over the years, we have driven around many places in the Gold Coast, the Sunshine coast and Queensland in general. We can’t wait to go back and enjoy the stunning sea and the luscious hinterland. It is unlike anywhere else in the world.  It is Paradise for us, and a really nice place to be.

Life down under is where life begins for us.

Back to our topic, according to media, Prince William and Princess Cat both wore Batiks on an evening reception in the Solomon Islands on this Asia Pacific tour.

Batik is an unique Indonesia cloth and is very popular in Indonesia and other parts of South East Asia.

Ever since we are in Jakarta, we have seen batiks everywhere. They are part of Indonesia’s daily life.

In Sydney, we have casual Fridays where everyone gets to dress in non business clothes. Here in Jakarta, it is Batik Friday. Many office workers wear Batik clothes to work that day.

The Lust Look

Princess Cat worn a floral, exuberant batik dress in this picture. She looks casual yet glamorous and really happy.

Prince William worn a blue cheery batik shirt. He looks radiant and delightful with a grin on his face.

A perfect ensemble for a tropical night in the Solomons.

Keeping It Real

Below are a few batik items that in our house.

Man and Fashion

Well, ‘Man and Fashion’, is there such a thing?

We went weekend shopping with Mr D.

We were looking for Mr D’s new pants.

You know, the normal kind he can wear to work. The one his got is old, so he needs some new pants.

Simple, right?

So off we went and landed in the Men’s department.

Look at them, the pants army staring at us.

Bays of blaaacks.

Bays of greeeeeys.

Bays of bluuuues.

Bays of beeeeeiges.

They were all the same, yet all different in some subtle way.

What to pick? Do you know?

Miss D got very, very bored and Mrs D finally realised why man didn’t  like shopping.

It’s soooooooo boring.


We had to go to Star Bucks to cheer ourselves up. Three coffees down (Miss D’s was an ice chocolate) and we were happy again.

No more shopping for Mr D, not in a long while, we HOPE.

What are you wearing today?

I feel  glamorous today

Hello, dear readers, how are you this morning?

It is a bright, sunny day here in Jakarta today. Hope you have a lovely day in your city, too.

Mr D was away on a business trip to New Delhi the other day, and this coincided with Miss D’s school field trip.

Lonely nights? No way, not for Mrs D.

She is actually quite excited about it! She could watch whatever she wanted on the TV, she could eat whatever she wanted for dinner, and she had the whole bed to herself which meant more room and no quilt tug-a-wars.

That morning Mrs D was thinking about how to use this newly found freedom, and totally indulge herself. You see, deep down inside that soft corner of Mrs D, in her wildest dream, the meaning of life is to be as glamorous as humanly possible, at least once in a while.

The Lust Look

The ultimate glamor girl has to be Marilyn Monroe. She was so beautiful. Not to mention absolutely sensational. No one will ever have the golden curly locks and voluptuous body like hers. Her impeccable style is every man’s dream. She is a style icon that has stood the test of time. She remains one of the biggest sex symbols of all-time.

Keep it real

Mrs D is no Monroe, not one bit. But that doesn’t mean she cannot surround herself with little luxuries and feel like a fancy lady once in a while.

Why not make our world a little bit more beautiful and fun when opportunities present themselves?

So on that day, Mrs D wore her favorite dress, experimented with her make ups, went out for a fancy lunch, and at night soaked up in the bathtub with her favorite music and candles.

It was a lovely day.

Let’s be glamorous today. Why not wear that bold lipstick you always dreamed of but never tried? Why not dress like a Goddess and walk around as if you are on the T way? Drink a martini, or even better have someone buy you that drink. Have manners, be classy. Be that woman you always want to be.

One day at a time.

What are you wearing today?

Animal Prints Outfit


Do you like animals as we do? They are such adorable creatures!

The D family went to Taman Safari two weeks ago with the in-laws. We fed the animals from our car windows with the carrots and bananas we bought. It’s so much fun.

If you are in Jakarta or planning a visit soon, Taman Safari is a must see. This open range zoo is where you can drive you car through to watch the animals wondering in wild and it is one of the best zoos we have seen!

Miss D can’t wait to go back again already!

More on that later. We promise to tell you ALL about Taman Safari in another post soon. Stay tuned.

Well, back to animals. Mrs D looooooves animal prints.  You can’t really beat the animal prints look and it never seems to go out of style. Well, we hope not anyway!!! Animal prints are such a versatile addition to anyone’s wardrobe … and will always be around and available.

Are you an animal lover? Do you have any animal prints outfit in your closet?

What are you wearing today?

Send us a comment and share with us what you are wearing every day. We love to hear that.

The Lust Look

To keep the spirit up, we have picked an animal print outfit for today. It is one of the lust pieces of Mrs D’s.

Fashion-animal print outfit

It is a navy blue stretch cotton dress from Stella McCartney featuring a round neck, long sleeves, a zip fastening at the back and lace panel inserts on the sides, sleeves and back.

To match this dress, we have also picked the Navy and black animal print faux suede shoulder bag,  from Stella McCartney as well. It features silver-tone chunky chain edging with tonal leather whipstitch trim, chunky chain shoulder strap with designer embossed disc and a concealed press stud for closure. Internally the bag has one zip fastening pocket and is lined in black designer stamped twill.
Finish the look with accessories, rings, bangles, and last but not least a pair of comfy sturdy high heels.

Hope you like it.

Keep It Real

Being a devoted animal lover and a savoy shopper, Mrs D has also got some pieces from her wardrobe to share, minus the hefty price tags of course.

The blue scarf. Love the colour and pattern. It cheers Mrs D up every time she wears it.

Black and white skirt. A classic look. Goes really well with a black singlet, plus the blue scarf above. Actually, any scarf that adds a bit colour and flair will do.

The beige printed dress. Image does not do justice to this dress at all. It is of pure cotton, very smooth, soft and femanile. Good summer dress for a lazy afternoon. Finish off with a ballet flat. Soooooooooo comfy!!!
