Hei, for starter, my name is Merilda Kristalya. I am 19 years old, and just started my own blog to fill my “do nothing days” during New Year holidays.
I often felt like the name “Merilda” is not a common name, may people find it hard to spell, speak and memorize my name. My mom said that Merilda came from the word “emerald” (a kind of precious stone) and “Meryl” (a famous female actress that my mom loved: Meryl Streep). The meanings of my first name inspires me to title my blog EMERALADERYL, a combination of emerald and Meryl.
I live in two places, in Tangerang with my family, and in Bandung where my university located. My mother language is Indonesian, but I encourage myself to write in English to improve it while hoping that my blog may be visited by people internationally. Because of that, I apologize for some typos and grammar failures.
I love fashion, especially affordable fashion stuffs. In EMERALADERYL, I am sharing my shopping experiences searching for a-worth-to-spend stuffs.
I used to dream to be a model actually, but then I realized that I love engineering more. But, I can’t deny that I still really love to take shoots as a hobby. I am not gifted by Beauty-Barbie-Pretty type of face, just a regular Chinese oriental face, thanks to my one and only photographer (a.k.a my little sister Helena Agnes) who is willing to take some shoots, so that we could get one lucky-gorgeous pict.
I am grateful that I could get a chance to study in Bandung, a city filled with hundreds of outlets and stores. Then I got an idea to start a project on my own called “Bandung CROSS-OUTLET”. I’ll visit one outlet per week and I’ll share my thoughts and experiences about it. I believe that it will be super exciting and may be very useful for my readers’ hehehehe. Don’t you think so? If you agree with me, please follow my blog and have twisty experiences with me.
