Korean Love and Comedy Drama 2015 - She Was Pretty

Few days ago I just finished watch this drama, She Was Pretty, I fall in love since episode 1, usually I do love this typical drama, from ugly to be pretty woman by make over and in addition with character of main actor who cold hearted and arrogant, those character make my heart fluttering by watching it hehe. 

This drama was funny too and the things that made me surprise is the main actor is Park Seo Joon, the man that I rarely found as main actor and here he is mesmerized me with his character, cold hearted, smile, look, attitude woww I love his character in this drama. This couple previously acted together at Kill Me Heal Me which is another good drama that I watched also. And another thing that surprise me is Choi Si Won who acted like a fool in here, that is rarely to see him like this but his acting was so entertaining. He act like a fool, poor guy but actually he is...hmm.. I don't want to be spoiler but I could tell he has a surprise for you that I don't even think like that, I was guessing wrong. Hwang Jung Eum, she is really into acting, she is not my favorite but I like watch her acting and some of her drama is good too, Kill Me Heal Me, Secret, those drama are recommended to watch.



One Day Trip to Leuwi Hejo

I kinda need weekend getaway even the shortest one because it's been a while since my last trip and I feel like I need to go somewhere. And my friend asked me to join a trip to Leuwi Hejo, Sentul, Bogor, so of course I said YES. It was an Open Trip, for the whole package is Rp185.000/pax then on November 15, we are going to Leuwi Hejo :) there were 18 ppl and meeting point as usual at Plaza Semanggi 6 AM, what a Sunday morning, hahaha but since I need this, it doesn't matter. 

Due to morning trip on Sunday there is no traffic jam in that morning and we reach the place in about 2,5 hours with ELF that already rent by organizer which is already included on that package. Since I didn't browsing that much so I just knew that in some part we are going into water where I thought it's gonna be the same like Green Canyon, body rafting? oops..the night before D-day my back was really hurt that it will hurt if I sit or even standing in a long time so thinking that I might not join the trip was really sad but thankfully, I woke up in the morning and I feel my body is getting better after I got some treatment the day before.

Yong Pal - Best Korean Drama 2015

Well, I enjoying watching K-drama so I decided to add another tab to talk about it, I just feel that I just want to share it since sometimes I found myself don't really know what is the next drama to watch, or if I watch this drama, will I survive and watch until the end? so, I would like to share what kind of drama or movie that I watched and share my thoughts ;)

First K-drama is Yong Pal, perhaps you watched it already, there were 18 episodes. Since the first episode I really enjoy this drama, the plot was pretty fast, intense and I have no time to get bored with, instead I gotta be patient to wait every week and depend on those who make it engsub, thankfully the engsub always out so fast. Thanks so much to them ;)

Dear Agent, Find Your Mission at Spy Club

Bam Barambam..Bam..Bam Bam Barambam #nowplaying James Bond soundtrack was our opening song before heading to this restaurant (haha..sorry kidding), Spy Club. This restaurant located at Kemanggisan area and looks like a secret agent quarter ever since you entered, so we feel like a spy who going to have special mission. Or if in Running Man, we will feel like our PD called us earlier to have special mission and put Spy tag on our name tag, haha, if you watch that reality show you may know it *daydreaming* There are some guns, police line and even T.N.T woowww..O_o
They have big space on the back which decorated nicely but since its an open area, it would be really hot if you come in the afternoon. But the decoration at that backyard are awesome, they put cooking equipment in the wall, hanging T.N.T on the ceiling, some part looks like unfinished wall with some green from the leaves. There were also band equipment so you might like to come at night, enjoying good food and live music. I just loveee it. Especially the long bench with red pillow make such a great spot to take pictures, like we did :) The waitress wearing S.W.A.T vest for their uniform, so it's kinda unique and make the restaurant concept fit in, in addition most of their menu name are so unique, Let me share what did we order below with some explanations and pictures for sure.

Nice Neighborhood named Goodhood Coffee and Kitchen

At one night due the traffic was pretty bad I decided to walk from JDC to Pejompongan few meters to find a taxi. And I found this place, with nice light and totally will attracted your eyes to see it comparing others building around them. So, I found this cafe, Goodhood Cafe and Kitchen, the good thing is the place is not really far from my office. After fasting month, me and office mates planned to having lunch there and here we go :)

We feel so excited, I usually go with them for lunch most of the time. We love to explore new places like this one which located in our neighborhood. I already visited 2 times and when I came for the first time, half of their menu are not ready yet. Since the restaurant is still brand new and not yet to have Grand Opening so it was still trial when I went there first time. There are 2 level for this restaurant, you may find nice murals at stairs and they also have some chairs in the terrace. The front door was unique with brown wood & big window that perfect to having OOTD photoshoot like my friend did.

Happy Mingle at De Mingle

Starting with a contest called Real High Tea Challenge (RHTC) Cafe & Restaurant 2015 by Dilmah, there are some restaurants in Jakarta & Bandung who participated this event. This challenge is teach us to appreciate tea and enjoying afternoon High Tea which is might not (yet) really common in Indonesia.

RHTC is organized by Dilmah Tea Indonesia. For the cafe & restaurant, there are some items that will be judged such as Hot Tea Pairing Dish (Sweet or Savory), Mocktail or Cocktail Pairing Dish (Sweet or Savory) and Tea Inspire Cuisine (Food with Ingredients Tea). They need to promote their RHTC menu to customer. I found it interesting to see which one is the best pairing to enjoy tea and what kind of menu they are going to make.

Happy Mingle & Let's Giggle! probably the perfect quote for this cafe, De Mingle , located at Rukos in Kebun Jeruk area, you may spot it in the corner right in front of entrance. It looks so cute from the outside and feels like telling you to come in right away into the big wood door. The interior is so nice, the right side is wide-window with black list sticker which is totally so cute and the left side you may find another different chairs with black lamp hanging on the wall and not forget the floor which is I found it attracted since they make it little different and how they make seat arrangement. High ceiling make the space look bigger, and look at their stairs containing of nice words with doodles and they also put some nice quotes on the wall.

Due to curiosity about this place, like some friends of mine keep tagging this place or had a gathering or even meeting in here. So, one night when I'm to starving I decided to enter this place, Bebek Tepi Sawah, it was crowded and the visitors are mostly family. The place is decorated with some touch of traditional yet modern.

Food that I ordered was the recommended one and the waiter said it is their signature traditional food, Tepi Sawah Crispy Duck (Rp99.000) the duck was so big and juicy, the sambal was delicious, there are 3 kinds of sambal and it mixed perfectly in your mouth when you dip your duck into the sambal and eat it, and like usual I put soy sauce into the sambal because I can't eat spicy food. The food served with rice, Balinese vegetables and sambals. You can also choose your duck whether deep fried or grilled, I choose deep fried.

For dessert I ordered Ice Jembrana (Rp27.500) it was refreshing finale made from blended sweet coconut, milk, cassava tapai and special syrup, served with grass jelly and coconut on top. So refreshing and usually I like something that made from coconut ;) The service was great, the ambiance of place also calm & comfortable. If you want to have fancy dinner with great duck food, you should try this restaurant.

Good Food on Weekend at Pantrynette

I keep passing this Ruko area at Lebak Bulus since my grandmother living there and this place is so catchy comparing with others building and gaining my curiosity to walk in. Once you enter the place it feels like home, it's like a living room that changing into restaurant with different kind of chair, some rattan, furry or plastic. Decorated with some frames in the wall and cute things inside the cupboard that placed in the corner near by window.

Pantrynette serves Asian and Western cuisines and the price were so affordable and I already visited this place for few times since I love their food and the location is really close with my grandma's house. Sometimes me and my sister or brother will visit this place straight after visit my grandma's house in the weekend.

I got lots of Banchan and me totally love it too much, tteokpoki soup, salad, veggie pancake, kimchi etc. It was soooo delicious....my tummy was very happy ;) ;) ;) especially when you mixed your rice with fried octopus..vert delicious, its quite spicy but I still like it. Rice is ordered separately (Rp15.000) and I don't know why but the rice taste so delicious too.

Arrived around 8 AM in the morning, the road some part were quite bad so the car were bumpy. We went directly to Body Rafting place, but we had our breakfast first before the activity. We got our helmet and life vest. They also prepare the rubber shoes if you want to change it but since I used my trekking sandals so I didn't change it. Waiting for our turns to take a pick up trucks heading to the starting point. It took about 15 minutes on our way to starting point. Started from jumping in 4m height or if you don't want to jump you can just go down. But I choose to jump, that was first time jumping like that and surprisingly I did it :) The Body Rafting was definitely so much fun, the view was very great, I love so much. There were few places to jump started from 4m, 2m or 8m and I did all of it *clappinghands* *proud* The distance is around 3,5km and we were body rafting around 3 hours until finished.

Let's go to Filosofi Kopi

I already heard about this place for a while because many people talked about it and this place was kinda boom since there was a movie with the same title like this coffee shop and filming on this coffee shop. I wanna go there due to curiosity but I didn't have time. 

So at one night, left from my office, I barely wouldn't go home immediately so I went to Blok M area at that night, walking, walking and walking and I saw a place that seems bright and there were a lot of people there so I look closer and I saw it wrote Filosofi Kopi in there and aaa..apparently I found it unintentionally. 

Then, I enter the cafe and wow I love the design, the cafe decorated with unfinished white bricks and there are some variances of seats with different height level, there is also a small pots near the big window, and some words are filled in the window with white colors. There is also bookshelf as part of some decorations. There are pretty many chairs inside, and actually the place seems small cause the shape is just square.
Greeny pots to make homey :) 

Some of menu already sold out at that night. I ordered Hot Cappuccino. The staff looks friendly and I kinda enjoyed drink coffee there. The price was okay and I think I will go back there and try some green tea and other snacks ;) 


There was some accident during my visit, I ordered hot cappuccino and when I put it on my desk, it turned out the table was shaky and I spilled my cappuccino ;( I asked tissue from the staff and he saw it and he offered me to change my drink and when he tried to fix my table it ended up more and more are spilled out so I got a new one.
