This is it! Ninotchka Coffee Parlour & Diner. A perfect hideaway for those looking to escape from the routine in the crowded city, Jakarta.
I’ve never heard about this place before, until my cousin tell me so. She was like : “Oh my God. Seriously? How could you not know about Ninotchka? It has been mentioned a lot in Twitter!” And I was like : “Oh really? … Too bad I didn’t know anything about it. ”
Well, yeah, she’s right. I then searched the internet about Ninotchka. I found that this cafe is run by one of the famous Indonesian fashion blogger, Sonia Eryka. Okay, I should make another confession. I didn’t know anything about her either since I’m not into fashion blog.Lanjutkan membaca “Ninotchka Coffee Parlour & Diner”

During my visit to Pattaya, Thailand, about 1 year ago, I had an early dinner in Breezeo Resto with my friends.

It’s one of the few places in Pattaya where you can enjoy the cuisine along with the fresh and clean breeze in a peaceful place.Lanjutkan membaca “Breezeo Resto, Pattaya, Thailand”
At the end of August 2012, my friend and I went to 北京 (Beijing), China for the first time. I was so excited since I’ve never actually been there before. I couldn’t imagine living in a city where most of the people can’t understand English. Even the receptionist in the hotel we stayed can only speak Chinese Mandarin. Here, language is such a trouble for me. I was like : “Hmm. I should take a Mandarin course as soon as I go back to Indonesia”Lanjutkan membaca “Walking the Great Wall of China!”
In October 2012, my friend and I went to a local ranch located in Lembang, Indonesia. It was approximately 1 hour car-driving from Bandung.
What makes me so excited is that this is actually my first time going to a ranch! And what do you think of when you heard the term ‘ranch’? A horse, of course! I was like : “Yaaay I’m going to ride a horse! A real horse!”. To tell the truth, I’ve never ridden a horse before. I rode an elephant before in Pattaya, Thailand, but, you know, elephant walks so damn slowly and I knew it from the beginning that riding a horse might be completely different. Well, may be not when you’re accompanied by the ‘horse man’. They will make sure we ride our horse safely.Lanjutkan membaca “De Ranch, Lembang, Indonesia”
