Jakarta -Day 2 and 3

There's only one word to describe the past few days...bliss. Sadly it's back to reality now for me but this is a happy post so let's not go there. Haven't felt this relaxed in a long time so i guess the fact that i forgot to bring work along was a blessing in disguise. Anyway the first meal i mentioned in my previous post was a one off because subsequently the food was AWESOME. This was what i had at the hotel buffet breakfast

I've been feeling like such a pig the whole time in Jakarta haha all i do is pretty much eat + sleep + chill. Been feeling kinda guilty because i spent such a ridiculous amount of time doing nothing but i guess time you enjoy wasting isn't wasted time. Or at least, that's what i'd like to think.

I LOVE WATERMELON SO SO SO MUCH. Favourite fruit ever haha i literally consumed like a whole plate of those! Had a lot of free time so i decided to play around with some make-up colours. This was supposed to be like a soft blue and pink fairy-ish look but somehow i just ended up looking like a china woman. Sometimes Asian features can be such a pain ):

Yup that was my ootd haha i'm sorry guys i really dress really casually on holidays so no fancy outfits! Anyway we decided to explore places near where we stayed and came to this amusement place thing that i thought was a little like our USS/Sentosa area! There were no roller coasters but there was a huge indoor amusement park carnival thing for kids(: And basically just A LOT of restaurants, although i have to admit one of the main reasons people go there is probably for pictures. It doesn't look like Indonesia at all! More of a London-ish feel to me

The entire place was just so lovely! There was this mall that was called MOI that i thought was like french but it turned out to be an acronym for Mall Of Indonesia haha oops. We decided to have lunch at the food court which by the way was so quaint

Okay singapore probably has food courts like that but just let me be fascinated haha. Decided on this fast food stall

I have no idea why the burger looks so tiny here but it was huge in real life. I couldn't even fit in my mouth so lunch was really messy. (note to self: never ever order huge burgers ) Ironically, food courts here are really expensive compared to restaurants...an average meal is like 39,000 indo which is just slightly more than $3.90sgd? Which is fine EXCEPT RESTAURANTS SELL AN A LA CARTE MEAL FOR LIKE 39,000 INDO TOO. Which is exceptionally inexpensive! The finest restaurant you find here won't even exceed $10sgd... i would say the  average price is probably like $5-7sgd per pax. Felt really cheated after the food court incident so for the rest of the trip we basically dined at restaurants haha. My mom wanted to get fruits so we visited one of their supermarts

Those were the sweet treats that i wasn't brave enough to try haha. No idea why but recently I can't take too much sweet stuff without feeling squeamish. Something must be wrong with me ): Anyway I'm gonna kinda skip the rest of day 2 and move on to day 3 which was shopping day! *dances around room prancing like a mad pony* (well, that's how my friends describe me sometimes). Look how my horrible roots are growing out sigh they look horrendous ):

But here are some pics i took from our shopping trip! Bought more things i.e. books/decor/etc. than clothes, partially because my wardrobe is already kind of exploding

This shop is called "Scoop" and it's so cool in this vintagey-hipster way. SPENT SO MUCH MONEY HERE friends you can look forward to cool christmas presents haha

So in love with the last pink room haha it was from a random accessory store! If i was a few years younger it would be my dream room but sadly i'm getting really old ): Can't believe i'm already 18 sometimes, i feel terribly unprepared for the maturity that the age seems to comprise. Somehow day three also turned out to be kind of like a family camwhore day so...let me introduce you to the most important people in my life. This is mama tee, the bravest, strongest and most beautiful woman i know<3

And papa who is crazy protective and chases all the bad boys away

Jo who was my first friend ever and the person i'm closest to even though we literally have squabbles like EVERYDAY but i love you haha

And lastly my little sunshine! Some people say i should stop calling her a baby since she's in secondary one now but she'll always be my baby sister #foreverandalways #overprotectivesister

After shopping till our legs nearly died we dad dinner at Ichiban Sushi. The menu there is slightly different and it's so much better than the one in singapore in my opinion. Of course it helps that you can order an a la carte main or a plate of 8 piece sushi each for just $3... almost too good to be true!

My tempura set! 

And this was the chicken set but it looks the same as the tempura to me LOL 


Didn't realize how much fun i had till i started blogging about my trip! Really grateful for this time off everything... really needed it. Miss Jakarta already, really wanna travel again soon haha. My life right now is basically back to study mode. Have so much more to update you guys on though, rmb to check back! xx
