I had a little piece of New York this past weekend staying at Hotel Monopoli. This is my first time staycationing somewhere in Jakarta. Because I love my home so much, there hasn’t been a need for me to stay elsewhere. However, NIKO and BYDJO are at Kemang Village this weekend so I figured why […]
Dear Dad, Perhaps you’ll never read this. I sure hope mami doesn’t show it to you. It’s 11.27pm in GZ right now and I’m awake bawling my eyes out. I’m lonely. At times like this I really hope there’s someone out there I can pick up the phone and call. It’s not that I don’t, […]

Because of last night’s good night’s sleep, we were both really energized when we got up. We took our own sweet time to get ready. One of the funnest part about traveling with a friend is when you are able to mix and match the itinerary to your liking. If you can’t wake up, sure, […]
For as long as I’ve lived, I’ve only been to very few cities outside of Jakarta. When people asked me about Indonesia, I could really only tell them about Bali. Even then, I have barely visited Bali growing up because my parents much prefer heading to other countries in Southeast Asia.
