Jakarta -Day 1


Hi guys hello from Indo! Sorry i kinda disappeared a little, just needed a short break. Just came back from my church retreat yesterday night and immediately had a 6a.m. flight this morning i'm kind of dying now 

Getting old and angsty HAHA. Please give me some credits for actually doing this post cause today is day one of my trip and i'm doing this post on the same day...been snapping pictures like cray the entire day gosh. I'm so sad because i originally planned to bring my SAT ten year series to study while my parents shop and stuff but i totally forgot to pack it in the luggage so i can't study here. Which also means i'll have only a week plus to study when i get back on sat midnight sob): Guess i'll have to take it a second time which is such a nuisance but sulking isn't gonna help either i suppose. Anyway...this is where i'm staying at!

THE POOL IS TO DIE FORRR. Also I really love that this place is surrounded by plants and flowers it's so pretty!

This hotel is a little different...it's more of an apartment i guess! More of a home-ish feel than the typical hotel setting

This is the bedroom in our apartment! My parents have one too but theirs is the king sized version

Mini chilling area

I have no idea why but the dining chairs really makes me crave matcha ice-cream haha need to satisfy my craving asap! Didn't see any japanese shops around though):

My ootd is not exciting at all haha hate dressing up when i'm flying cause i find it really inconvenient especially since i'll be lugging my bags and stuff around for the most part. Had brunch/lunch at the quaint little place but the food kinda sucked. Okay, REALLY SUCKED.

I know i look really skinny but come onnnn that's barely enough for a proper meal! The only thing that was good was probably the ice lemon tea #fruitteafanforever

Was crazy tired and hungry after lunch so we went back to the hotel to chill for a bit before going for a swim! Well, to be more exact my sisters swam while i lazed at the tanning chair. (Please don't judge me ): I usually love swimming my 40 laps but my thighs were aching crazing from squats and running around i was forced to do on sunday haha). Beach ootd?

I guess so for Jakarta has been really nice...I've never been to indo before except Bali so i wasn't really sure what to expect but it's great so far. Amazing place, lovely apartment, lots of chilling. But i'd also like you guys to see another part of indo, and this is the part that i don't think we are exposed to very often...poverty.

The above two pictures were taken from the regular streets of indo. And it's really sad because little kids barely ten would tend the night stalls. It's really dangerous but i suppose they don't really have a choice because they need that money for survival. When i was ten i was probably complaining about how i didn't get to watch the latest Disney movie. It's such a stark contrast and coming to less progressive countries always makes me feel weird. How is it fair for one child to be born in such pristine luxury and the other in such wretched poverty?

But i guess that's life. It's unfair. And the least we can to is to be thankful for what we have (: Hope you guys had fun reading and have a lovely week ahead! xx
