Ibis Style Surabaya Hotel Jemursari

Long time no see Surabaya! Last time, I visited this city in 2012 when I was joining a food competition held by one of the prestigious private university in Surabaya. Since then, I have never been here again until this February. The city has grown up into (more) metropolitan city and trip destination city. I had no time to visit around Surabaya due to my tight schedule. Too bad 😦


If you are looking for a budgeted hotel near the airport (around 25 to 30 minutes), then I suggest you to book your room in Ibis Style Hotel, Jemursari (near the Yello Hotel Jemursari).

Located between Jalan Jemursari and Jalan Kendangsari, ibis Styles Surabaya Jemursari provides easy access to Rungkut Industrial Estate, the nearby business hub of Surabaya. It is 25 minutes by car from Juanda International Airport and only walking distance to city’s main mall and Hypermart. The hotel features 132 modern, minimalist-designed rooms, 8 contemporary meeting rooms, a Main Hall, Lobby Bar, WOOt! Pool Bar and Streats Restaurant. Perfect for Business and Leisure travelers.

The room’s interior was well-designed, minimalist-modern with twin beds or a double bed. The standard room was quiet small (22m-square) with 32″ LCD TV, work desk and chair, in-room safe, hairdryer, and free WiFi Internet access. However, you will like this modern style room if you are a neat and simple person.


Standard Bedroom

The swimming pool has amazed me. At glance, I could see the water was clear and the chlorine level was low. Very hair-friendly :p I enjoyed my swimming time so much in WOOt! Pool Bar.


WOOt! Pool

The buffet breakfast was located at the same floor with the pool. The place was quiet spacious, with the touch of blue and orange dominated the resto. There was also some tables on the balcony (outdoor) for you who like to enjoy your meal with the city view.


sTREATs Resto

sTREATs resto offers you some (majorly) Indonesian menu like nasi pecel, nasi leukoh, soto madura, and even the kue pasar. I like the kue pasar more than the cakes. The chewy texture of the kue pasar makes me want to eat more and more ♥


Pecel and Kue Pasar

There was also Western food and Tom Yum Noodle Soup for another options. I like the Tom Yum Noodle, the spicy sour soup completes my morning day. I even drink Teh Tongji Jeruk Purut to balance my taste buds :))


Tom Yum Noodle


Healthy Breakfast


For the fruit and salad bar, you could choose and decorate your own salad style. The veggie was quiet fresh, as well as the fruit cuts. The dessert bar was pretty decorated, making  you want to eat all of the cakes :p


Dessert Bar


Blueberry Cake

Overall, I really enjoy my short trip to Surabaya. Especially for the pool, Ibis Style offers you a simple luxurious place to spend your day. The room was good and the food choices are plenty. It’s suitable for your destination during your business trip or even your holiday.


 Enjoy your trip!

Cafe Thirty Three by Mirasari

Cafe Thirty Three by Mirasari Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Hello Food Lovers! This time I was invited to dine in Cafe 33 by Mirasa, Kemang. It is a hidden gem in Kemang, near the Abunawas. I celebrated my Valentine in this modern-classic cafe. Cafe Thirty Three is the new generation of Mirasari, which was a very popular restaurant since 1978.



The Outdoor

The cafe was located inside a house with a touch of Indonesian culture. The interior was awesome, a nice wooden facade. Inside, the Turkish chandelier made the cafe even more romantic. This place was suitable for birthday celebration, bridal shower, romantic dinner, and even for wedding reception. The classic-elegant decoration will make you want to take some photos. The place was quiet instagrammable.  The indoor area was quiet dark even in the afternoon. The place was not crowded and calm. I think I’m gonna like this place ♥

The price of the food and drinks were quiet affordable as compared to any other cafes around Kemang. The portion was standard (quiet small for me :p) We ordered both  Asian and Western Menus.


My Lunch Menu

While waiting for the food, you will be served with 4 small pieces of bread with margarine. The bread was quiet good, but the margarine was not so good for me.


Complimentary bread

For the Asian menu, I tried the Dory Sambal Matah with Rice. Looking from its appearance, it was quiet tempting, although it was too oily for me.The aroma of sambal matah was so good and the taste was delicious! The dory was not fishy and tender.Not too soft, but still bite-able. I love this dish ♥


Dory Sambal Matah (87k)

For the Western menu, I tried the Prawn Aglio Olio Pasta. The aroma was so good, garlic and oregano combined into one. The prawn so good, as well as the spaghetti. A little bit too salty for the pasta, but it’s okay. For you who like aglio olio, I suggest you to try it. The hotness level can be chose between No Spicy / Spicy / Super Spicy.


Prawn Aglio Olio (85k)

For the drink and dessert, I chose Green Tea Panna Cotta and Choco Milk Shake. The milkshake was good, quiet thick, and not too sweet. A Perfect companion to celebrate Valentine ♥


Choco Milk Shake (42k)

Here comes the panna cotta. Judging from the look, the panna cotta was so small with a big scoop of vanilla ice-cream. I think I was wrong, since the panna cotta was very very thick and could fulfill your dessert-tummy. The texture was hard (for a pudding) and the taste was good. The sweet from the ice cream and the matcha was well-balanced. The green tea syrup tasted like the original green tea. Superb!


Green Tea Panna Cotta (45k)

I enjoyed my time in Cafe Thirty Three by Mirasa. The place was so cozy, not crowded, and calm. The food was quiet delicious and the price was quiet affordable for a fine dining concept. I recommend this place either for a casual lunch, dinner, or for a celebration. I think the place is good for dating ♥

Happy Valentine all!

My Travel Outfit

Hello Fashionista! I want to share my travel outfit during my travel trip to Hong Kong and Malaysia. Sometimes, we choose to wear simple outfit rather than stylish outfit. We think that bringing a few pieces of clothes would burden our luggage. Here, I share my fashion tips for travelers.


Choosing a right outfit with your destination

It’s important to check the weather of your destination. Since I like girly-feminine outfit, I choose floral skirt and sabrina top for going sightseeing around the town. Fitting the clothes with the destination theme has always been on my to-do list. When I went to Hello Kitty Cafe, I wore chinese-ethnic simple dress because it was a chinese restaurant.



Dress: Obliviu | Bag: Coach | Scarf: H&M

Jeans and Jegging

These 2 things are your saviour when you have no idea what to wear on. I prefer wearing jegging since I feel that jeans are to heavy to be brought and I don’t get used to wear them. Jegging is lighter and I like mix-matching my T-shirt, sweater, and even my pretty top with jegging. You can use black jeans or black jegging for formal occasion as well. I also like to wear boyish outfit  with a touch of elegant beauty when I had my lunch in a modern-style cafe in Malaysia.


Hat: Rusty | White top: Zara | Jacket: Zara |Bag: Longchamp | Jegging: Uniqlo

Playing with The Right Accessories

If you are a simple person, than just go with the T-shirt and short pants! I suggest to wear the right accessories to level-up your look. Sunglasses, hats, statement necklace, scarf, or even the statement shoes (but the comfy one) to complete your look. It’s easy to ruin your whole look by choosing the wrong accessories.


Sunglasses: Chanel | Loose Shirt: H&M | Skirt: Stradivarius | Bag: Coach | Sandals: Hong Kong Store

Sandals are your best friend

Walking around the city from one to another places will soak your feet. Wearing shoes is not wrong (better to wear socks or short stocking to protect your feet), but it’s important to let your feet ‘breathe’. Otherwise, you will hurt them.


Loose Shirt: H&M | Bag: Longchamp | Sandals: Hong Kong Store


Here’s my secret: when  in doubt, wear monochrome. Wearing black or white will never go wrong. Instead, you will look elegant, edgy, and cool.


Jacket: Burberry | Bag: Aldo

I hope all of you will get a super cool look during your holiday. Be yourself and be unique ♥

Pokemon Cafe at Kuala Lumpur

Pokemon Cafe Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato


Hello Food Lovers! I went to Malaysia for a short trip recently. Like usual, I always visit a place which is unique for me. Unintentionally, I went to Mid Valley Mall in Malaysia. I went shopping in Aeon Department Store where they sold Japanese stuffs. When I queued for paying my stuffs, I recognized that the cashier was in the Pokemon Cafe! The place was small behind the Stationary side. You could see the cafe from the entrance.



The cafe was just for 6 tables, each tables for 4 people. Quiet small corner. The good news is they sell both main course and dessert! The bad news is that they will close the cafe in the end of February 2017! So catch up before it ends =(

Here comes the foods!


The menu


My cute lunch

I ordered the Chicken Omelette Rice (namely Battle on Pikachu! Level-Up with Rare Candy) with Pikachu head as the Omurice. So cute and too good to be eaten ♥ I couldn’t help myself to not eating the Pikachu. The omeltte was like kue dadar (thin layer of egg to roll up the rice). Inside the Pikachu head was rice and chicken patty. The demi glace sauce was queit good with the smell of sweet BBQ sauce. The portion was quiet big for kids and enough for adults. The price was still affordable as comapred to any other kinds of similar character cafes in another country (see the Gudetama Cafe here ♥ ). The cute thing was they give candy besides the salad, related to the name of the dish.


Battle on Pikachu! Level-up with Rare Candy (RM 34.90)

For the Pikachu Smiling Rice Omelette, the head of Pikachu was yellow rice and the ears were made from omelette and seaweed. They gave volcano croquette inside the salad. The taste was so-so, but I think kids might like it since the Pikachu head was quiet big and they like the croquette with tomato sauce.


Pikachu Smiling Rice Omelette (RM 29.90)

For the drink, I ordered Pikachu Latte (Hot). Surprisingly, the latte was not as bitter as coffee, more creamy-like taste, and milky. Maybe it was made like that so that kids could like it. Can’t help with the smiling face of Pikachu on top of the latte!


Hot Pikachu Latte (RM 16.90)

They also sell Pikachu Cheese Tart and Pikachu Pudding. Both of them are so cute ♥


Pikachu Cheese Tart (RM 9.90) and Pikachu Pudding (RM 9.90)

They will give you Pokemon Angpao if you spend minimum RM 50!


I got free Angpao

Overall, I love this cafe since the cute dishes and drinks tasted good and the price was quiet affordable. The place was cozy and not crowded. Besides, you can enjoy your coffee break after going shopping. I wish I could come to this place again.


See you on my next trip ♥

Jia Dining At ShangRi-La – A Contemporary Chinese Dining Resto

Jia - Hotel Shangri-La Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato


Hello food lovers! Happy Chinese New Year for you who celebrate it ♥♥ May all of us are blessed with joy, prosperity, health, and luck through this Rooster-year. You can see my CNY outfit here.


On CNY, I went to Jia Dining resto, located inside Shangri-la Hotel. From the lobby, you could see a duck statue holding dim sum, written ‘Jia’ on the dim sum’s bamboo bowl. From that statue, just go to the elevator to the basement, turn left (the right side is Satoo restaurant), and here comes Jia.


Introducing JIA, the new signature Chinese restaurant in Shangri-la, formerly known as Shang Palace. In Chinese, JIA (Jiǎ) means first, strong bonding, family and home, a place to share great dining moments with friends and family. At that moment, I realize that this is a right place for me and my family to dine in for Chinese New Year 🙂

First step in and you will be awe with their lounge. The lounge interior was very elegant, a contemporary Chinese-inspired interior, but with modern touch. You can wait in the lounge while waiting your name called on their waiting list.


The lounge

For me, I love the interior and can’t help to stop my self from taking photos along the aisle =p Sorry for spamming the photos, but you can see how beautiful the interior is. Beautiful, classic, and elegant. There are many private rooms (spacious enough for 15 to 20 people).

Looking inside the resto was just too elegant and classic! You would say ‘Wow!’ and stand in awe. The guests could see the cooking process from a love open-oven station at the right side of the resto. The ingredient used must be fresh and for the premium dish, they serve the best ingredient, such as Abalone.




JIA serves tasty dim sums, luscious roasted menu and well-loved celebrated Chinese dishes. Their Executive Chinese Chef aims to serve the best of Chinese cuisine through his delicious dishes which are taken from traditional recipes with modern twist. Their signature dish is Peking-Style Roasted Duck and la mian noodles served in big bowls, as well as their fresh home-made dim sum.


We order the dim sum (Chinese New Year must eat buns!It’s my family tradition). Here we go for the dim sum, main course, and dessert.


Steamed Pork Siew Mai 32k


The siew mai tasted good. The pork meat was tender and chewy. The shrimp was quiet fresh and tender (garing). Not oily, clean, and tempting. One of the compulsory dim sum menus you had to order.

Steamed Shrimp Dumplings (Hakau) 38k


The dumpling’s skin was soft and the shrimp was tender. I like the taste, well-cooked with the seasonings. One of the compulsory dim sum menus you had to order.

Steamed BBQ Pork Buns 36k


Tasted like any other pork buns. Sweet, savoury, BBQ aroma, and soft. I like the buns better than the pork sincethe meat was not well-seasoned.

Steamed Soup Pork Dumpling (Xiao Long Bao) 32k 


I love the presentation! So unique. The xiao long bao was steamed on a small wooden crock. A slice of carrot was placed on the bottom of the dumplings. For the taste, it was good, but it’s better to add ginger. The skin of dumpling was too thick.

Steamed Custard Buns with Salted Egg Yolk 32k


This is my favorite dish. Cute and delicioussss. Squeezee it and the salted egg custard will come out from the ‘mouth’. The salted egg custard was so tasty! The bun was soft and fluffly. I suggest you to order it more than one. One is never enough!


Deep Fried Spring Rolls with Assorted Mushrooms (30k)


The spring rolls were crispy and good. One thing that I like : they were not oily. The mushrooms was tender and well-seasoned.


Signature Peking Duck (Whole: 398k / Half 218k)


Meet the Peking Duck, the signature dish of Jia. The cooker directly brought the duck in front of our table and started to slice the duck. The skin was very crispy (you can hear ‘crack’ sound when he sliced it) and the meat was so tender. No bloody-like aroma like any other ducks in other restaurants. The aroma was good, hoisin sauce combined with the roasted-burnt aroma from the meat. The Executive Chef told us that the duck was roasted in a special oven for 45 minutes (slow-cooking) to bring out the aroma and taste. So delicious!

Wok Fried Vermicelli with Shrimp and BBQ Pork “Singapore style” 75k


It is called “Singapore Fried bee Hoon” or “Xia Men Mee Fun” in other chinese restaurants. The taste was like fried vermicelli with the curry leaf aroma. The taste was good and the portion was big. Could be eaten for 4-5 persons for 1 portion. Quiet big enough, eh?

La Mian Noodle Soup with Shredded Pork  and Sichuan Preserved Vegetables 58k


So disappointed! The la mian was good, chewy, soft, and the texture was perfect. The pork was cooked well with the soy sauce and hoison sauce. However, the soup was very very salty! Trust me! I don’t know the soup was like this at the original or the chef was to busy (the resto was so crowded, though) and he put the salt twice. Better to improve the quality of the soup.

Braised Homemade Bean Curd with Brown Fungus and Ginko Nuts 98k


I love the tofu! So soft, but firm (not like any other tofu which was easy to be smashed into pieces). The mushrooms was well-cooked with the seasonings and the ginko nuts was tender. No meat at all, but tasted good!


Deep Fried Swan with Almond Sauce 32k


Too cute to be eaten ♥♥ I was eager to order this one since I saw it from the Instagram photos. The swan sweet dumplings were 3 pieces in a small plate. Surprisingly, the taste was not sweet, better to improve the taste to be sweeter. Indeed, the outer part was crispy enough. Inside was almond custard. What I like was the custard was not sweet. The sweetness was just fine and not too sweet. Although many people showed disappointment with them, I love these swan tarts so much and so do my family.

Mini Egg Tarts 32k


My mom’s favorite dessert. She loves egg tarts and so does she when she bite this one. The tart was crispy and the inside was so soft like pudding. Chinese egg tart is always simple and tasty. Not too sweet and I love it.

Overall, Jia serves the best peking duck and dim sum in Jakarta. Good news: Jia also serves vegetarian dishes as well! Besides, the place was very elegant, beautiful, luxurious, and spacious. The private rooms are available for private event and closed celebration. Better to reserve the table 2-3 days ahead since it’s full booked on weekends. The dim sum was good, although it was quiet overpriced as compared to other chinese restaurants at mall. However, the price was affordable as compared to any other hotels’ restaurants. Both me and my family love this place and will dine in Jia again.
