KING MANGO THAI at Neo SOHO Mall Letjen S Parman Jakarta

June 25th, 2017. I knew about this place when it opened for the first time at Neo SOHO Mall. KING MANGO THAI is happening, guys! LOL. It’s brand from Thailand, and it’s the new hype I think. I came today since it’s holiday and my hubby could keep me company. Yaaaaay. Are you ready to queue??? Whoozaaaaah!

KING MANGO THAI is an exquisite fast drink served that specialized in mango as the main ingredient. It is a franchise product from Thailand and it has become a very popular product in Thailand and we believe that the concept we bring will receive positive response and a great prospect from Indonesia market.

Today they opened 12pm, so we waited at nearby coffee shop. When it’s 12pm, I drove to Neo SOHO Mall and prepared to queuing. And it’s already a long queue. LOL. “We were late!!!” I shouted to my hubby hahahahhaa.. I was amazed to see how they preparing the mango smoothies, whipped cream, mango slush and mango cubes in one big plastic cup. I heard that when they opened it’s buy 1 get 1, and the queue was very long. Then, it’s 40k per cup. And today it’s normal price. But it’s still long queue.. Wooooow!

Big Mango 50k

At first I only wanted to buy 1 big cup. Then, Hans texted me and asked me where I was. I said, “I am queuing at King Mango. Do you want some?” And he said, “YES!” So, I said to hubby, “We’ll buy 3 cups lah. I’m tired. So it’s 1 for you, 1 for me, and 1 for Hans.” After 1 hour and 40 minutes, finally we arrived at the front line. Then, “Ciyen, can you buy 2 for me?” OMG! @edmarvinz poked me. LOL. Ok, so I bought 5 cups. Hahaha.. And it was worth it. I loved the sweet mango and the texture of the smoothies. But I think 1 cup is enough for 2 persons.

Hawker Chan Indonesia at PIK Pantai Indah Kapuk Jakarta

June 24th, 2017. Famous for their motto: The Cheapest Michelin-Starred Meal in The World, Hawker Chan finally opened in Jakarta. Yaaaaaay. I heard about their famous restaurant in Singapore. When it came to Jakarta, I was very happy. I was invited to their pre-opening last Monday but could’t come. So today I asked hubby to keep me company visiting the place.

IMG_9619

Located above Tim Ho Wan, we can go upstair with elevator or stairs. Lucky us, we came around 11am, so we didn’t have to queue. Not very spacious place, just a typical clean and simple chinese restaurant. We met Eve and Ika *nice to meet you ladies* and they helped us choosing the menu. Anyway, I was curious about the Liao Fan. What’s the meaning of it? I forgot to ask them. Well, if I had a chance to ask them, I will update here.

Chan Hon Meng, the founder of Hawker Chan: As my first post on Instagram, I want to encourage all Hawkers in Singapore to continue learning, experimenting and improving the taste and quality of their food. I never thought that hawker food would be recognised by the Michelin guide. It was a surprise, a good one in fact. In short, I wish that all my fellow Hawkers would be motivated and strive to achieve the Michelin award in the years to come. Thank you everyone, my family, friends and customers for your continuous support!

Northsider Coffee Shop and Roastery at PIK Pantai Indah Kapuk Jakarta

June 24th, 2017. A nice friend told me about this new coffee shop. I was planning to go last week but I had another event, so I asked my hubby to take me there this morning. Love the ambiance of Northsider. It’s coffee shop and roastery. And very friendly people there.

IMG_0373

They have 2 levels. The first level wasn’t spacious, but the second level was bigger, with smoking area outside. We stayed at first level, easier for us to chit chat with the barista. Actually, they asked me to find someone there, but he or she still on the way. So we ordered first, until it’s time to go. Psst, they have this airplane hanging on the ceiling at some corner. Gorgeous!

WINC Collaborative Space & Café at Gading Serpong Tangerang

May 21st, 2017. I saw this place scattered around on Instagram account. But, it’s very far away from my place. And since everybody had already went there, I must wait for hubby to drive me there. LOL. WINC Collaborative Space & Cafe looks very lovely. And when I finally there, I was very happy. The place was very beautiful.

IMG_8288

WINC is a Coworking space that provides a new working style where you work with other people to maximize your work performance. The space is being used for other things as well depending on the demand such as business meetings, events and simply a place to hang out and chill, meet new people and make new friends.

I came to WINC with my hubby and my nephew. We loved the place. They rent the 2nd floor for coworking space. So, we sat on 1st floor. We only went there to try their coffee and food. Maybe next time we will use their 2nd floor.

Kasiko Padang Restaurant at Setiabudi One Jakarta

May 20th, 2017. I knew Kasiko Padang Restaurant since the first time they opened at Setiabudi One. But, I’ve never heard about it before, so I hesitated to try it by myself. I waited for the right moment to go there with hubby. Lucky me, Rinku invited me to come to their event trying Kasiko. Yaaaaay.

IMG_8260

I was there with fellow foodies. As usual, I only took some photos and sat patiently waiting for others to take photos. After waited for some time *patient tummy.. please be patient* finally we could try those delicious food. By the way, the place wasn’t very spacious but quite nice and comfortable.
