[HOTEL] Holiday Inn Express Jakarta International Expo – Standard Double Room

October 14th, 2017 – October 15th, 2017

From one hotel to another. We stayed one night at Holiday Inn Express Jakarta International Expo. It’s my second Holiday Inn Express staycation, actually. I thought it will be a small hotel. That’s why I was stunned when I arrived at their lobby. It’s quite big. And what I liked about the hotel, they have such friendly people.

The bedroom wasn’t very spacious, but it was very comfortable. Actually, beyond my expectation. Well, the bed was smaller than we thought, but surprisingly very very cosy. We only got up the bed when we had to eat. LOL.

We loved the flavour of the food, but unfortunately the meat was too hard to chew.
The chef asked us about the food, and he said sorry for the hard meat.
But, we really appreciated the very nice gesture.
Maybe next time we will be back to try another dishes.

Thank you Holiday Inn Express JIExpo for the very very nice hospitality. We loved you!!

Humble Cake, Coffee and Boardgame at Sunter Jakarta

October 13th, 2017. I was very tired, but I still had time to visit one more coffee shop before I checked-in. I knew this Humble Cake, Coffee and Boardgame from IG. Interesting, right?

IMG_6625

A humble place in a hidden area. Friendly people with welcoming gesture. Good for cake, coffee and boardgames, the place will be a nice place to hang out with friends. Some can eat cake, some can drink coffee, and the others can have a good time with boardgames. I know I will enjoy those activities.

Kopi Susu Sederhana

It was really a humble kopi susu, like the name. Humble here means simple. I loved the coffee, not too milky, not too coffee. I think it’s one worth-to-try es kopi susu, when you’re in Sunter area.

Risolles Ragout, Risolles Smoked Beef, Croquette @ 6k

 I took away for our snacks at hotel. I shared them with hubby, and we had the same thoughts. Those were good. The texture of the skin and the filling were perfect. And the flavour? No need to ask. Tasty!

Humble is one hidden gem coffee shop that you should try. And I have one word for them. Fun!
