24 November 2015


As winter is around the corner, I would like to share one of my sweater weather looks I wore couple of weeks ago. Despite the cold, I'd feel rather relieved for winter '15 merely because summer this year was too long besides the intense heat I wish to stay under that 24-hour-a-day-air-conditioner weather. (And oh! Not to mention those fancy monochromatic gears I can put on during the season)

Speaking of weather, there has been confusion about when winter will happen in Taiwan during the past two years. One day you might have found out that the weather forecast told you 30 C, so you chose to grab shorts and sleeveless tops because it was damn hot outside, and the next day you went out of the house, the first thing you were looking into was, jacket.

Apparently that happens in Taiwan, which has led me to bring jacket everywhere I go around October and November.
P.S: Don't be fooled by the weather!

However, as foreseen by weather report, it says that winter is coming to town from this day on! (At least the temperature stayed between 19-20 C the day I posted this blog). So, this time it is appropriate to wish everyone a great fall, I guess :D

As a student of Department of Horticulture (the study or practice of garden cultivation and management), science is one of the main field of studies that is fundamental approach to the certain experiment, hence, four chemistry classes, includes the fundamental and branch chemistry, are some of the required subjects playing critical role towards our graduation credit.

Unfortunately, during first and second year in the university, I never had fair connection with chemistry. Despite the failed exams (yeah I rarely went through the exams), I miraculously passed the subject merely because it would be a too burdensome decision for the teacher to fail three quarter of the class.

The interior itself is build up of white walls, and the owner incorporating monochromatic equipments into the room creates a spacious room while in fact the place is not as extensive as it looks. Oh! Look at those tables, they are built with ceramics :D

Try this cake and I would say, enjoy the rich dark chocolate melted sauce!

Fungus! I love mushroom! 

A lot of handmade accessories to look into. You might want to purchase it though :)

It will come as a little surprise when the coffee you order is served inside a baker glass just like liquid found in scientific lab. Until then, I realised volumetric flask, erlenmeyer flask, pipette could be fun. Anyway, toothpick anyone?

My shopping buddy and photo partner! :D

Hullo! I'm back in my hometown, Jakarta to spend my winter break and Chinese New Year. Despite the rapid weather changes between rainy and sunny day since I arrived here two weeks ago, I pretty much love the warm temperature which means a break from thick outfits ^^

Couple days ago, I managed to taste the luscious desserts at Union, Plaza Senayan branch, one of popular restaurants in Jakarta. Not only does it serve a wide range of delicate cuisine vary from starting to closing menus with Western or Asian taste, but it also presents a fine ambiance to its dining site. Oh! the waiter and waitress were extremely friendly towards the guests too. Do not hesitate to ask about any suggested menus or ask them to help you taking photos. 
It is no wonder that the place is crowded with groups of people holding either meeting or simply small gathering with friends almost its business hour. It was three in the afternoon ,which is outside lunch time, while the attendants write my name on the waiting lists. I could barely see empty seat thr time I arrived there. For this reason, I suggest that you book hours in advance to safe your time.

 Honey Bee Smoothies (IDR 55.000) -a mix of carrot, apple, pear and honey is a perfect companion during sunny day. The taste is good, refreshing and not too sweet. 

Red Velvet (IDR 55.000)

 Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake (IDR 55.000) 

The cakes come with rather large size but you can always share with your friends. If you fancy sweet desserts, I would highly recommend these flavors. In case the question about the red colored cake appears, it uses no artificial colorings, thus safe for eating. One more thing, all cakes are available for pre order but make sure you book minimum three days in advance for three or more cakes.
