[HOTEL] Swiss-Belinn Kemayoran – Superior Deluxe Room

October 13th, 2017 – October 14th, 2017

What a lovely day to have a staycation at Swiss-Belinn Kemayoran. It’s my first time there. Good thing, my online-car driver knew the place. Poor hubby, he got lost inside the parking lot. There’s no security guard to be asked or a big sign in the parking area. So, it’s been a tough nite for him LOL. But after some wrong ways, he finally made to the lobby to be picked up by me.

The bedroom was beautiful, but no more smoking floor next time I had staycation hahaha.. It was miserable. Good thing, the room was pretty and quite big. LOL.

DINNER

We chose to have our dinner by the room service.

Oxtail Soup

Not really my favourite. The oxtail meat was not as tender as I hoped. The broth wasn’t my hubby’s favourite too.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Served with salad and mashed potato, I really loved this chicken cordon bleu. I didn’t really like the mashed potato, but the chicken was tender and well-seasoned. Loved the texture and the flavour. I think it’s one of the best chicken cordon bleu I’ve ever tried. Super recommended!

We had lovely breakfast. They didn’t have too many variants, but the food were quite delicious. They have seats outdoor near the swimming pool, and also near the lobby.  I didn’t eat much, since I had to be at another event.

B.O.R. Coffee at Ruko Sunter Paradise Sunter Jakarta

October 13th, 2017. B.O.R. Coffee was born on February 2016. Yes, a long time ago. And I just had a chance to visit them this October LOL. Well, Sunter is quite far from my home. That’s why I always compiled list of coffee shops around Sunter, then visited them in a day.

IMG_6613

Located at a not-so-busy shophouse in Sunter area, B.O.R. looked small and quiet. They have outdoor tables for smoking area. When I came in, the ambiance was warm. A dimly lit atmosphere and friendly people made me feel welcome. They’re selling T-shirts too. Cute! Actually it should be a good time there, until a guy next to me started to drink his tea, and made a sound after drinking. Gross!! It’s not a good sound, trust me.

IMG_6612 IMG_6614 IMG_6616 IMG_6624 IMG_6617 IMG_6618 IMG_6619 IMG_6620

Es Kopi Darat 18k

When I saw the name for the first time, I laughed. It’s really funny. Kopi Darat is actually a phrase for people that knew each other from various media such as online, radio etc, then decided to meet up. LOL. It’s actually really good. It’s bitter and sweet. Just like my life #eh.

IMG_6621

Doughnut (Choco) 20k

I loved chocolate. That’s why I ordered this one, since it looked very delicious. Actually, I didn’t eat the doughnut directly, I took it away for later snack at my hotel. And it was delicious. The chocolate was sweet and tasty. Well, if you don’t like sweet doughnut, it will be better if you order another flavour, then.

October 6th, 2017 – October 8th, 2017.

Finally, we went back to Pontianak again. Woohoo! We always went to Singkawang first, then spent time in Pontianak. This time, I wanted to stay 2 nights. Well, I used to stay around Gajah Mada street, but this time I wanted to try another area. We chose to stay at Mercure Pontianak. And it was really good, since it’s very near Ayani Megamall.

Deluxe Room with 1 King-Size Bed

Larger than superior with minimalist style with pool city view, comfortable king-size bed, 32″ LCD TV, satelite TV with selected 40 international TV channel, free unlimited Internet access, laptop-size safety box and ensuite bathroom.

At first, they gave us connecting rooms, but it’s facing directly to the university next door that was holding a music event. We asked for another rooms then. We experienced a room like that, and couldn’t sleep at night. That’s why we asked them to move us to another one. Thank goodness, they still had rooms for us, with different angle. It’s comfortable room, but too bad, I didn’t have any electric plugs on my bed side. So I had to sit on the table while working on my macbook. *sobbing*

BREAKFAST

EBONY RESTAURANT

A modern and contemporary design with a stunning open kitchen serving a selection of Asian, Western, and authentic Indonesian cuisine where guests can experience a ‘live’ culinary act.

It was such a busy hotel. I couldn’t take photos of the food since it was almost gone. It was not interesting to be photographed. And the restaurant was too crowded. I couldn’t take photos of the place. Good thing I still could take the environment of the restaurant before checked-out.

Thank you Mercure Pontianak for the 2 great nights.

Osaze Bistro & Grill at Kemang Raya Jakarta

September 8th, 2017. I went to Osaze Bistro & Grill after attending an event *you can see my previous post*. Actually I met Feilica from Chope, and she asked me to join her to Osaze. Well, I didn’t have any plan at that time, so yeah, I joined her there.

IMG_4489

When we arrived at Osaze, I found out that it was previously Clea Tea. They still have the flowers shop. They didn’t renovate the place much. And, the ambiance still the same. Well, Feilica had the meeting there, and I took photos around the place. More simple than the previous one, but it’s still beautiful.

IMG_4490 IMG_4491 IMG_4492< IMG_4493 IMG_4494 IMG_4495 IMG_4496 IMG_4497 IMG_4498 IMG_4499 IMG_4500 IMG_4501 IMG_4502

Ice Latte 33k

Love the ice latte. At first, I asked them about the presentation. They told me, it would be on layers. Great! It was delicious and beautiful. Me happy!

IMG_4505 IMG_4503 IMG_4506

Iced Chocolate 50k

It’s Feilica’s order. I tried a sip, and it was really really good. I loved the presentation, and the flavour, absolutely.

IMG_4508 IMG_4509

Great job Osaze. Definitely will be back for the food.

Mendjangan at Kemang Jakarta

September 8th, 2017. I knew about Mendjangan from Billy’s IG. Apparently, they hired Billy to be their opening team. Great job, Bil! So, when they opened, I took the time to stop by. It was very easy for me to find the place. Just looked for flower boards all over the area.

IMG_4444

Located at Kemang Raya street, it’s previously a house, now a restaurant with gorgeous interior and lovely pool. When I came in, I was stunned. Their facade is totally beautiful. They also have a coffee bar. I believe that they’re very serious with their coffee. Then, after their dining area, you can go to outdoor area for smoking. And you also can go to another outdoor area to see their swimming pool. It must be fun, right? You can bring your kids and your family. Lunch with a pool view. Amazing.

IMG_4446 IMG_4445 IMG_4447 IMG_4449 IMG_4448 IMG_4456 IMG_4457 IMG_4458 IMG_4460 IMG_4443 IMG_4455 IMG_4440 IMG_4441 IMG_4442

So, the day was actually for “Tumpengan.” It’s a happy moment. They prepared their signature food for us. And they were all delicious. I forgot the name, so I just put the photos below. LOL.

Congratulations again Mendjangan. Wish you all the best.
