> Hello Kitty Cafe <

Helloo guyys!! Good to be back to blogging again!

So recently I went to this themed cafe all the way in North Jakarta, just to see the hype of the other bloggers with this cafe. So this cafe opened to public on May 18, 2016 and ever since then, there has been a long queue. After a few months of waiting I finally got to sit and eat at this cafe.FullSizeRender

When you first go in this cafe, you will be bedazzled with all the pastel colour explosion of this cafe. From the floor up to the ceiling, its mostly covered with Hello Kitty! Fans of Hello Kitty would be very excited to be eating in this cafe.IMG_1185IMG_1184

Ikea Escapade

Im pretty sure that most of us has been to Ikea once. This is my second time I visited Ikea and i still had an overall fun experience.

Ikea originated in Sweden around 70 years ago, the so called “Ikea experience” to the customer in the store had to be interesting, family-friendly, enjoyable and fun.

The very first Ikea store in Indonesia was opened since late 2014, its located in Alam Sutera,Tangerang. Until today, Ikea is still a very popular place to go to in Jakarta.

Ikea’s system of self-service (DIY) has made their furniture much more affordable and also made us independent.

Covering 35,000 sqm, Ikea has over 50 room showcases and 3 complete homes to inspire us. It also has a restaurant which could fit 700 people on the first floor, a supply room with everything shown on the showcases and  approximately  1,000 car parks.You will find everything you need in just one location.062becc7-e4c6-4412-80cf-9109afdd056c

Walking around Ikea is tiring, so I stopped by at their restaurant to gain my energy back. There are not much choices to choose from but their food prices are relatively cheap!

The Ice cream tastes very rich and yummy. Not only does it sell ice-cream but the shop also sells hotdogs, chicken bread and more however it is a “must buy” to get the ice cream as it completes the Ikea experience.

Ikea is a huge place, I recommend you to go there when you have a full day to yourself as looking at the showcases and everything there would take a  while!

Impromptu visit to Hutan Mangrove

Just so you know, Im not that person who could stay home for the whole day.
I was having my term-break and remembered there was a day when i got really bored and had nothing to do.I  know i should have studied, but studying the whole day obviously stresses me out.
I decided to text my friends and ask them if we could meet up.
Turned out that they were free and we decided to go to PIK(pantai indah kapuk) to have our lunch.

Why PIK?

PIK has been one of my favourite place to eat as there are so many varieties of food there!
After we had our lunch,i told my friends that theres a forest nearby called “Hutan Mangrove” and that we should take a few shots there.

Long story short,We arrived at the entrance feeling unsure that it was the right place as it was so silent and there were not much people there.Not long,we met the ticketing guy and he welcomed us in a friendly way.The entrance fee was affordable which costed us Rp 25,000 per person.

We spent around 40 minutes at the forest taking pictures and canoeing.
On a scale from 0-10,im giving it a 7.

If you plan to visit the place,i suggest you to bring mosquito repellent/sprays to prevent yourself from the itchy bites.
