Last week I attended the exclusive launch of Greenfields' first yogurt line: Greenfields Yogurt at Almond Zucchini Jakarta. Being wildly used for tons of coffee shops in town, Greenfields has got to be everyone's favorite milk brand (at least me), there must a reason for that and only one word to describe that: QUALITY.
Last night I came to the opening of this highly anticipated restaurant (for me) in Plaza Indonesia: Mother Monster, which is the brainchild of two big players in the Jakarta F&B industry: The Common Grounds and Biko group! Common Grounds is very popular for their brunch cafes and gorgeous coffees and Biko for its chic nightlife scene (and good drinks too!). When I know that my dear friend, Gloria Susindra is the head chef (aka mother/monster of the kitchen) I kinda had this good feeling (or should I say expectation) because I've always loved her food ever since the St. Ali days and I know she's very talented, but of course even though they're my friends that doesn't mean that I am not going to be an honest review.

2017 has been the year of ups and downs, mostly for my inner peace. It will take me to write a long ass post to tell you guys about what I've been dealing with this year, but anyway I am doing much much better now compared to me in March/April, just constantly having a quarter life crisis and searching for what happiness really is for me, and seriously my wish for 2018 is for my soul to be happier (and of course to travel more and to be able to bless others too), my tacky wishes are genuinely what I want.
The pioneer of the legit one-priced sushi in town, Sushi Go, just recently opened their latest outlet in Grand Indonesia and guess who's freaking excited? ME (and I'm sure a lot of you too!), this is officially their second outlet after the well-accepted first outlet at Dotonburi PIK Avenue!
If you visit Bali regularly and happens to be a fan of ribs, I believe this should be no stranger to you, and I am glad that they decided to take a leap of faith and open in (I really wanna say Jakarta) somewhere near Jakarta, yes, the famous Hog Wild with Chef Bruno is now opening in Gading Serpong! Of course I believe you guys probably wonder whether it will be as good as their Bali outlet? Keep scrolling to read the review, I am going to keep it simple yet straight to the point.
I went to Nutrive Benecol's event a while ago at The Hall - Senayan City, and as you guys probably know, Nutrive Benecol is one of the leading products by Kalbe that's targeted to people who has cholesterol and to those who want to maintain the level of cholesterol in their system! The older I am now the more I realize how cholestrol is not something to underestimate, it's the prime trigger of the heart disease and cancer, which last year alone caused the death of 2,6 million people! 29% of the 2,6 million comes from southeast Asia, with Europe being the largest victims.
Even tho Indonesia is the country with the largest Muslim citizens in the world, but I just love how festive we are with Christmas celebration (even though not as extra as Singapore) and lately I've seen how malls are now almost 'competing' to decorate their venue with sparkling Christmas ornaments and such, and of course restaurants are making special dining sets for Christmas, and you know me, I love giving you guys recommendations on where to go to celebrate Christmas dinner with your couple, your family, your bitch, your sugar-daddy I really don't care, it's the food and the good love-making that counts really.
Life has been keeping me busy and I am grateful yet exhausted from it, to the point where I didn't realize that we are already in December. I was having my dinner, then looked at the phone's lock screen and it was December 1st 2017 I was like WTF I thought it was November 31st (when there isn't even any). I know right, I know.
For the last two years, I have seen a rapid growth for healthy indulgence and I am pretty sure that all-things-healthy are going to have more recognition as the years roll, I just feel like people nowadays tend to understand more how important it is to consume healthier food and the idea of you-are-what-you-eat! At the moment I might not be the master of it as my job requires me to sample various feast, but align with what I am saying, in this entry I'll briefly review the newly opened healthy dessert cafe in Pantai Indah Kapuk: IGNASIA'S (or Cake Me Away by Ignasia).
I know it's been a while since I hosted this lunch event but I am still super duper excited to share the story to you, well simply because it's too good to keep it for myself, first of all, special thanks for my blogger and social media influencer friends who made the effort to come and spent some time to have lunch here.
Confirming the floating news, after the 4-year contract with Luke Mangan ends, what was Salt Grill is now replaced with a new concept from the group: ALTITUDE GRILL, a classic Western steakhouse that's ready to grill and you some high quality proteins! Was invited to the pre-opening lunch and here I am briefly sharing my thoughts of this restaurant for you.
Not long after KFC shook us with their KFC Chochicks, Texas Fried Chicken just recently launched their newest product and one that I'm highly excited about but don't make me compare this to KFC's because both are totally different in terms of concept and flavor, but since I am a classic savory guy who loves to pair my chicken with rice, so this might be the one that fits my preference better.
Following the existing success of their Pamulang, Ciputat and Cibubur outlets, recently Kedai Keibar (aka one of the surviving Indomie cafes in Jakarta) opened its latest venture in Depok. I love Indomie but I don't really go to Indomie cafes to have them because I can't stand the long queue, and I don't think it's worth it to wait hours just to have Indomie, but their creations are quite addicting, kinda like an exception.

I just returned from Jogja and if you've been following me on Instagram and watched my Instagram Stories I was very sick hours before I departed from Jogja, my head felt very lightweighted (I've never been drunk before maybe that's what it feels like), sight was a bit blurry and body temperature was rising, short to say I wasn't in the best state but thankfully as I am writing this blog post I've recovered very well in two days.

Yesterday I paid a short visit to Museum MACAN (not MAnis dan CANtik) but Museum of Modern And Contemporary Art in Nusantara that's just recently opened and have been operating for several days as this post is written, and the museum aims to be showcasing art collections from local and international artists. Many of you ask me where Museum MACAN is, well to actually click on the location will actually help but I guess most of you are really to lazy to do that, so the museum's located on the 5th floor of Wisma KBR, Kebon Jeruk, not too far from RCTI.

With entrance fee of IDR 50k/person (IDR 40k - elders, IDR 30k - children), visitors can enjoy around 90 artworks that's beautifully placed in a 4000 meter square venue, and I notice there are four big categories here: Bumi (earth), Manusia (human), Kampung Halaman (hometown), then Kemerdekaan (independence), followed by Bentuk & Isi (shape and content) and Racikan Global (global recipe). To be completely honest, I am not an art expert so I guess this post will be more like a picture blog post where I show you snapshots from my visit to the museum.

Yayoi Kusama!!!
The one that's been flooding my timeline is of course, the Infinity Room by Yayoi Kusama where she always comes with various ideas no matter where she runs her piece! Each visitor will be given 40 seconds to enter the room (but honestly it felt way less than that like 20/30 seconds). When I checked my inbox earlier today I guess around 10 people sent me pictures of how long the queue for the Infinity Room is and lucky for me there was no queue that time LOL!

NOTE: Because of the super high interest towards the infinity room, do come around 3 because at certain days the queue closes at 4 PM and other days at 5 PM! Do check them or contact them personally for details, otherwise your trip here (especially if this is your main interest) would not be pleasant.
Tour de Museum!
This is shady but I love it! 
Andy Warhol!
21st century human!
Right after the exit you'll find a small merchandise store where you can shop and help them. They are a non-profit organization so I guess they rely on sponsor funds and these items to help.
I may not be someone with the biggest knowledge of art nor can I say I have the biggest interest towards it, but going here was kinda fun and I really did explore and see what they have in store and I AM SUPER GLAD for the arrival of Museum MACAN because as a visitor myself and based on my visits to museum around the world I found that, reality is, the location and the venue became one of the main reasons why people like me don't go to museums, there are museums with no air-conditioner, there are museums where I feel like the artworks not well care taken, there are museums which vibe just doesn't really give me the impression to go back. Not everyone may agree but that's my opinion solely as a visitor (not as someone who's an art expert) and Museum MACAN came with comfort and I like it. The artworks showcased here are beautiful and I guess regardless the different style, the different approach, the different narrative on each, there will always people who understand and appreciate them (or short to say, a fan).

The current exhibition will last until March 2018, still plenty of time!

One thing that's funny to me is the fact that the more digital the life that we live in, the more I realize that the photos that popped on my Instagram feed are getting more and more analog with film-like feel and even more amazing, the fact that analog photography is kinda re-living and getting more fans, you don't know just happy I am!
I first heard about Bake-a-Boo when my dear friends: Andrew Yaputra, and Cindy Lulaby from Lulabyspoon often posted about their Iced Chocolate on their Instagram Stories so I got a bit curious and just last week I finally had my first encounter with this highly raved and talked about bakery, FYI they have two small outlets in Muara Karang and Menteng (soon in Serpong) but I won't be sharing about my experience visiting their outlets and will focus more on their products (and in no way this blog post is an ad).
