The Sakala Resort at Tanjung Benoa Bali

Welcome to The Sakala Resort at Tanjung Benoa, Bali. Tanjung Benoa is a well kept secret paradise at the south part of Bali, famous for the beautiful beach, the tranquility and definitely the beach front resort! Used to be Mantra Sakala, we were once had our lunch here back in 2015 at their Sakala Beach Club which is located just before the beach. And now they transformed themselves into the new Sakala Resort. We got the chance to stay at their Deluxe Suite Room at the 5th floor, a spacious 60 meter square suite with a huge living room and a comfy luxurious bath room both interconnected with their main bed room. Wanna know more about our experience here? Let's check it out!

Enjoy Floating on The Pool at Cabina Bali

Welcome to Cabina Bali - A new tropical theme cafe with turquoise pool at the center as their signature. We got the chance to visit this newly opened cafe in Canggu during our trip to Bali on last September 2017 and it was such a nice place to hang out! It was our last day in Bali (day 4) and we were about to leave the island at night. So, it was so unfortunate that we couldn't enjoy the pool like plunging or floating on the giant watermelon float! We tasted a few of their recommended menu and we are excited to share them with you right now. Let's take a look!

Afternoon at Karma Private Beach - Uluwatu

Karma Kandara, a dream resort that I believe everybody wants to experience at least once in a lifetime. But well, not everybody has that purchasing power to stay at the luxurious expensive resort. The only option you can experience is to visit Karma Beach! Yeay a private beach located separately from Karma Kandara resort. Experience going down the hill to the beach with their mini electric cart and watch the amazing view (especially the sun set) on your way down from the hill. Expect to spend at least 500K/person to reach the private beach in which you are given 300K credit to order any food and beverages (exc alcohol) on the bar. Beach was clean and peaceful while being enlivened with the resort's live music performance. Let's check out our beach moments here!

Momozen - Authentic Japanese Restaurant on the 46th

Another high end Japanese Restaurant in town, introducing MOMOZEN! Got the chance to try a few signature dishes here, its located at The Plaza Building at 46th Floor. We were actually invited by Nibble App to visit this restaurant and we tasted 5 different dishes from their Tapas to their main course. The first picture above is their best selling Black Truffle Somen with Caviar (80K), its a cold served somen or angle hair noodle neatly plated with an intense truffle flavor. I was totally sold with this one, it was really addicting! Size wise it was petite actually, so eat with care :p This gonna be a very short review, so let's go!

Wapa di Ume - Best Honeymoon Villa in Ubud

This image above might look like an abandoned house somewhere in the middle of the jungle. I managed to capture this image from a certain angle in the area. I really love the shot, because it somehow shows the natural side of a resort. Let me introduce you to Wapa Di Ume, a hidden exotic resort in Ubud. We were looking for a hotel 2 days prior to our arrival in Bali and it was like last minutes! I browsed through Agoda.com and got tons of choices. Ubud has been one of the best places in Bali to escape from a busy buzzling city. One thing about picking a nice stay is by sorting the hotel's rating. Wapa Di Ume came out as one of the best with a rating above 8 (forgot the exact). And were didn't make a wrong choice, this easily became the only two most memorable resort in Ubud after Padma Ubud. I have specially put a lot of effort in making this review just for you guys. So enjoy!

Very excited that A&W Restaurant is finally having some new exciting menus. And its not just one, two, or three, but its more than that!

The Harvest Atilier Making Blueberry Bloom with Mike Lewis

Sebuah kesempatan berharga diundang ke acara The Harvest Cake untuk membuat kue Blueberry Bloom langsung dengan Chef nya. Gambar cake berwarna ungu di atas adalah cake hasil ciptaan gw sendiri selama acara berlangsung. Nah bintang tamu nya adalah Mike Lewis nih guys! Jadi Mike juga ikutan membuat cake Blueberry Bloom tersebut, sekaligus sebagai juri juga karena di akhir acara dia yang memilih cake kreasi siapa sih yang paling bagus versi dia. Ternyata bikin cake gampang gampang susah sih guys. Soalnya proses nya lumayan panjang dari membuat bahan dasar nya (cake base dan blueberry creamnya), menata bahan tersebut ke dalam satu loyang bulat, mendinginkan cake tersebut ke freezer, hingga menghias cake dengan berbagai hiasan yang dapat dimakan. Proses nya hampir 3 jam nih guys. Nah di blog kali ini gw akan kasih liat proses membuat cake ini selama event berlangsung. Cek review lengkapnya yuk!

Le Diliel Asian Bistro & Bar - Pluit Village

There's finally a nice luxury bistro at Pluit, and I really mean very fine restaurant at Pluit Village. This shopping mall has been an underdog, yes people somehow blindly judge this place as a 'dead' and unpopular place. But lately I found out that there are actually nice cafes inside and its quite hidden on the balcony area or the outdoor area of the mall. I hardly found the location at first until I finally found out that there is an outdoor area. Its a surprised feeling when going inside the room. I was quite stunned by the beautiful decoration. It was Friday night when we came here and it was actually an invitation dinner by The HYPE group. There was no particular event whatsoever, we got invited here purely to enjoy our night in a special beautiful table decor and with a 5 star service! Bravo Le Diliel, you surprised us that night!

New HOURS COFFEE & MORE at Kelapa Gading

Another new coffee shop in town, specifically in Kelapa Gading. I am a very picky person when it comes to reviewing coffee shop. I don't know I just feel like pesimistic about current coffee shop trend where they only sell coffee (I mean standard coffee sorry). But this one HOURS is something fresh and tempting. The whole fresh concept that I saw from the social media really attracted me to come. I visited here for a quick lunch and they have only a few menus to try. I really hope they add some more main course menus, such as steak or pasta because I hardly picked a main course for that little options. But my first impression was pretty nice, foods were fine, coffee was decent, room was quite packed as it was still around a week or two of the opening. I don't have much to show, but hope you enjoy the review. Let's go!

Guys mau kenalin nih salah satu penantang baru di Elang Laut PIK (kaya pertunjukan tinju yaa penantang) namanya Bumbu Rempah, Yeayy!

Gelato Factory Bali - Best Gelato in Bali

There are quite a few Gelato brands in Bali but there is one that for me honestly to be the best one. I mean it kinda sounds very cliche like BEST is sort of a preference to every individual. But me and Lucy agree that Gelato Factory is by far our favorite. Gelato must be creamy like this and I believe they use the freshest ingredients especially the milk. You can tell how smooth their gelato and it melts very quick in just  a few seconds. We visited Gelato Factory at their Seminyak outlet at Jalan Kayu Aya 32 (Oberoi) and it is strategically located at a very buzzling street in Seminyak. If you know La Favela at seminyak, then it is just a few meters away! I can't wait to show you their outlet here!

KEDAI PAWON SAE by Bogana Milka

Rasanya sudah lama sekali tidak makan comfort food aka traditional Indonesian food seperti ini. Terus terang memang kita saking lebih seringnya mengejar kafe2 hits baru sampai lupa dengan makanan tradisional kita sendiri ya. Tapi ada rasa kangen tersendiri ketika melihat makanan Indonesia yang sederhana namun sangat lezat seperti yang satu ini Kedai Pawon Sae by Bogana Milka. Ya Bogana Milka ini sudah ada di industri makanan tradisional selama kurang lebih 20 tahunan. Bisnis nya ini dimulai oleh pendiri nya Ibu Milka dengan resep utamanya Nasi Bogana. Saat ini beliau banyak menciptakan kreasi makanan lainnya yang dapat ditemui di restoran dengan label Kedai Pawon Sae. Kemudian apa sih yang ditawarkan di Kedai ini? Yuk baca selengkapnya.

Buffet Lunch at Orient 8 - Hotel Mulia

Its my first time to this luxurious buffet restaurant at Hotel Mulia Senayan and I was quite excited when I first stepped into the restaurant. Its a weekday lunch time when I visited here and I escaped for a while from my work. I was quite stunned by how beautiful the room, the table, and all the decoration here. Food area wasn't quite that big actually, in fact the seating area is 3 time bigger than the food area. I believe its because a weekday lunch, its gonna be different if its dinner or weekend lunch. Oh btw, I was here because of Nibble App invitation. You might have heard the app a few times from my latest restaurant review, because I was invited for some food review here. I am not a typical buffet person, so what I'm gonna show you in the blog post is more to beautiful pictures than a close up of the food itself. Let's check it out!

The First BOAT NOODLE in Indonesia - Gandaria City

I'm about to introduce you guys to the most happening restaurant in Gandaria City at the moment, this is Boat Noodle. The idea of this restaurant is to serve you a small serve of Thai noodle which is actually inspired by the real noodle served in floating marketing in Thailand. There's a true reason behind the small serve noodle! While the boat on the floating market is shaking, they try to minimize the soup from spilling by serving a petite size of noodle in the bowl. That's pretty funny to think about because each bowl can only feed you around 2 spoons. So, during the early opening, they tried to make a hype by asking you to stack the bowls as much as you can. Each bowl only costs you IDR 8.500 with one choice of soup and meatball. So, 3-4 bowls still cost you reasonably right?

Reopening of Fountain Lounge at Grand Hyatt Jakarta

We were really glad to be invited by Nibble Apps for the reopening of Fountain Lounge at Grand Hyatt Jakarta. We frankly never heard the name before but Fountain Lounge is certainly a legendary. Its the perfect lounge located at the very center of Jakarta at one of the most prestigious hotels in Jakarta as well. Its actually an open space lounge with very high ceiling and located just besides the big window front facing the iconic Bundaran HI. Its certainly luxurious, relaxing and definitely calming. Its also a great place for some afternoon tea / coffee, snacks or some healthy bites. We had some of their signature meals and beverages, so why don't you take a look!

Nebula Kuningan at Mega Kuningan

A new kid on the block, introducing Nebula Kuningan. The fourth establishment of Nebula cafe/restaurant originally from Bali! Its probably new to Jakartans but for those who reside in Bali must have heard their name. We got the chance to taste some of their signature dishes here on Saturday 15 July 2016. And they are currently still in soft opening period and serving lunch & dinner from 11 AM to 10 PM everyday! Its a very bold move for them to create such unique South East Asian dishes in a brand that doesn't really sound like Asian. In fact, this Asian dishes are almost, if not all, different from what they offer in Bali. Let's check out our tasting event!

Grand Opening Promotion for Kokoro Mazesoba - Gandaria City

First of all, congratulation to Kokoro Mazesoba for their Grand Opening of the second outlet at Gandaria City, South Jakarta. Its a very fast move of this new soba franchise from Tokyo, Japan. I thought they were just opening like one month ago and now its another new outlet. There's a mixed review about their signature Zenbu Soba (above picture), some liked it and some hated it. We personally a super big fan, hands down. There's no similar competitor at the moment as they are very unique and authentique. You might compare them to Yamatoten Abura Soba right? Yes, they are similar but Kokoro doesn't have that vinegar sour flavor at all. So, you may pick which one is your favorite. They are also offering special opening promotion! Anyway, let's check out the Grand Opening even on 13 July 2017!

Well, we've covered our short review here!

Perth Travel Experience 2017


Hello Perth! Ini adalah trip pertama gw di Perth walaupun gw sebenarnya tidak asing lagi sama Australia. Sedikit flash black ke 2009-2010, gw bersekolah Pasca Sarjana di Sydney selama 1.5 tahun. Selama masa sekolah tersebut, gw hanya menjelajah kota Melbourne, Canberra dan Gold Coast saja. Kota-kota mainstream di Australia ya, namun entah kenapa tidak ada minat buat ke Perth karena Perth terkenal dengan kotanya yang sangat sepi. Selama periode 2010 - 2016, gw masih mengunjungi Australia 2x, tentunya ke Sydney dan Melbourne lagi. Nah, kebetulan trip terakhir itu tahun 2016 dan gw mendapatkan visa untuk 3 tahun multiple trip. Akhirnya bulan May 2017 gw dan Lucy membuat rencana trip ke Perth mengingat biaya flight nya cukup murah di bulan tersebut. Nah di blog ini gw mau share sedikit tentang kota Perth. Mari dibaca :)

Indonesian High Tea at Kila Kila by Akasya

We've experienced a lot of fine western style of high tea, from a simple restaurant's high tea, a medium class lounge's to a 5 star hotel's high tea. But we never quite experienced an afternoon high tea with local traditional Indonesian desserts. And Kila Kila by Akasya might be the pioneer at least in Jakarta. Milenial consumers tend to spend money on something modern, high tech, advanced and stuff, including on modern food. But what about our own Indonesian heritage? This is the main background of why Kila Kila introduces this unique high tea. Let's check out more!

Staycation at Shangri-La Hotel Surabaya

Back to a hotel review, I think its really been a while like the last time I had a nice stay was in Bali. I really like to experience something new to my trip, or lets say 'Staycation' where you pamper yourself around a nice resort with all of their facilities. I've been to exotic places around the country and I'm still exploring at this moment. Last week 29 April - 1 May 2017, we went to Surabaya for a 3 day trip with our friends, and the last time I visited Surabaya was like more than 10 years ago when I was elementary grade. I forgot everything about Surabaya and I had imagine going back one day with the new Surabaya. You know I admire Surabaya's mayor, Ibu Risma, with all her big transformation to the second biggest city in Indonesia. Our first stay in Surabaya was in Shangri-La Hotel Surabaya. Let's check out more!

Tempatnya Salmon Seger di Salmonhu.com

OMG this is just beautiful! I got this whole fresh (non-frozen) Salmon from Salmonhu.com, an online based Salmon & Fish distributor. I never really saw a whole Salmon fillet until I got mine at home. They sent it with a big styrofoam box filled with shaved ice to keep the Salmon fresh along the delivery. The Salmon itself was inserted into an air-tight plastic to keep it hygenic and fresh. I personally don't eat fish that much, but trust me when I cooked it my self, this was not fishy at all and totally super fresh. More picture inside!

TUGU KUNSTKRING PALEIS - Menteng

When the first time I heard about Tugu Kunstkring, my mind was thinking about old style Indonesian Dutch restaurant. And that was true when we first saw the old style building from the outside. That really reminded me of a dutch colonial building. By the time I stepped into the building, I was like jaw-dropping. It was super elegant, exotic and mystical, a combination of traditional Indonesian heritage with some touches of Dutch influence. The table arrangement was so beautiful with crystal wine glasses, and luxurious european-palace style table decorations. Take a peek on the room here!

PADANG MERDEKA - Kota Tua

Our very first Padang Food Review on the blog! Enak nya review pake bahasa indo non formal kali ya hehehe. Jadi Padang Merdeka ini baru banget buka sekitar 30 maret 2017, ketika kita berdua dateng masih 2 minggu dari opening yah. Excited banget karena udah 2 minggu ini sering liat temen2 foodies pada posting di instagram, bahkan sebagian uda review di blog juga. Kenapa bisa sampe heboh gini? Ya karena ini masakan Padang, siapa yang gak suka padang coba? Apalagi kesan yang ditampilkan dari makanan lokal ini cukup elegant ya, bukan sekedar warung makan sederhana. Nah mending cek deh keseruan kita di sini!

OKU 1st Anniversary - Kempinski Jakarta

So, we got a special invitation to celebrate OKU's 1st anniversary. As you've probably read some of my blog posts, I always put OKU as my number 1 favorite fine Japanest Restaurant in town, there's no doubt about it. And it was such an exciting day as for this celebration, we got to taste their special 7 course meal! Imagine having 7 different kinds of masterpiece, plus they also served us their signature dishes (out of the 7 course meal) such as Truffle Gyu Don, Abura Salmon Abura, etc. Well, as we are not expert in Japanese food, what we can do here is to share what we had that day. So, enjoy!
