My guilty pleasure has always been instant noodles. Yes I know it's BAD with no nutritional benefits whatsoever hence the word guilty before pleasure =P And my favorite is the Lucky Me Instant Pancit . . .
My fab friend Ted, the food editor, introduced me to this restaurant. He said it's where he brings visitors or friends who are new to Jakarta. I can understand why. The food is delicious, ambiance and . . .
There is nothing cuter than a well-made (and yummy) cupcake! I can't wait to learn how to make them with my new silicone cupcake moulds and cupcake recipe book from Ak-sa-ra! Super cute! . . .
Before we came to Jakarta we were warned by my mother-in-law not to brush with the tap water because when she was in Jakarta in the 90's she brushed her teeth with tap and got amoeba! To think that . . .
It is exactly because of the World Cup that there are so many people who want to eat great sausages/crispy pork knuckles and have great Rp 98,000++ 1L glasses of beer at the Paulaner Brauhause . . .
And my favorite place to eat it in Jakarta is at Social House. We always get the same thing: Eggs Benedict & Old Time Favorites. Servings are massive so get ready to be REALLY FULL afterwards. . . .
We attended an event last night at the Ambiente Restaurant at the Aryaduta Hotel. I loved the ambiance of the Italian resto & the art that was everywhere - on the walls, nooks & even hanging . . .
We got our flat unfurnished so we could invest in good old teakwood furniture (which is something Indonesia is known for). Another word for "old" is "recycled." Basically meaning, they salvage pieces . . .
For me, that is. Erdinger Weissbier is quite simple (in their own words) "the wheat beer par excellence." And I agree! Ever since I discovered Erdinger Weissbier at Mickey's Delicatessen about 3 . . .
I asked my husband, how come we've never taken Garuda Airlines for local trips in Indonesia and I loved his answer: "Because Air Asia uses terminal 3, which is nicer and newer." And it totally is. . . .
