Bourton-on-the-Water

This year, I am blessed to go back to England to attend and capture the mother-in-law’s wedding. As usual, whenever we’re back, we always try to spend as much time as possible with the family. Nan and granddad took us out to York in my first visit in 2014, and we spent a day out…

Jelajah Sentul

Jadi akhir April kemarin, aku dan dua sahabatku, Vera dan Mycel, yang memang udah lama banget pengen jalan-jalan tapi selalu terbentur kesibukan masing-masing, akhirnya memutuskan tujuan untuk singgah ke Gunung Pancar, Sentul. Kita bertiga pergi pakai mobil kantor aku, berangkat jam 8 pagi dari apartemenku di bilangan Jakarta Barat, dan sampai daerah Sentul sekitar jam…

Cara Membuat Visa UK

Cambodia Honeymoon: Okay Boutique Hotel

Peter and I went to Cambodia last summer to celebrate our new chapter in life as husband and wife. Our mini honeymoon was a weekend away in Ubud, Bali. This time, I’d like to give you aΒ review of this place we stayed in Phnom Penh (PP), Okay Boutique Hotel. We always chuckled everytime we hear…

Romantic Stay at Bayad Ubud Villa

It’s almost the end of February, Pete and I are thinking about going somewhere for the possible future three-day weekends. We’re planning to either go to Bali (–again–I know! I love Ubud very much) or…any ideas, my fellow Indonesians? Before coming into a conclusion of where to go, I would like to give you a…

California Dreaming

Pertama kali aku dengar Mba Noni dan Jalan2liburan bikin giveaway rasanya β€˜whoa asik jalan-jalan’ (ngarep tiket gratis haha). Temanya pun cukup mudah, hanya menuliskan destinasi wisata impian… nah, temanya sih simpel ya, tapi bikin ruwet hati nih. Dulu waktu masih belia, destinasi impian aku itu ke London buat lihat Big Ben yang puji Tuhan udah…

Jakarta: The Bad and The Good

To celebrate The Guardian a.k.a my favorite newspaper reportingΒ about Jakarta this week, it seems obligatory and natural for me to write about Jakarta guide. Known as the Big Durian, this city is longing to be loved yet has a lot to detest about. As someone who’s been living in this city for 8 years (gosh!)…

Singapore Rush

Singapore. The cleanliness, the ignorant locals (Indonesians are very nosy by the way – it’s nice being ignored at times) and the convenience. I wish Indonesia has MRT to go everywhere, it’s so convenient.Β Singapore also has decent sidewalks, Peter and I sometimes just walk around the city without exact directions or just watching people.  …

Dining in the Dark in Phnom Penh

Hello, beautiful people. Before I go deep into reviewing Angkor or Phnom Penh’s Royal Palace, I would like to tell you an amazing experience I had in Phnom Penh, to which I think everyone should try. One of my favourite romantic movie, which I first watched with Pete on our first few weeks of dating:…

Cambodia: First Impression

Well, people make first impression on make up, let me make one for Cambodia whilst the memory is still fresh in my head.Β The country is a popular destination for people to see the Angkor temples, but interestingly for Indonesians (or at least half of my friend) do not really know or care of the country.…
