The Playground

Almond rabbit top (from Thailand) | Colorbox skort | Furla bag | Dheyshu white shoes | Fossil watch

After such a long time, I finally made an outfit post! I thought I would never made any outfit post more because nobody has time to take photos of my outfit in a descent place. I managed to take outfit photos when I was going to a cafe with my friends, but I felt embarrased because there were lots people starring at me. 
Anyway, this outfit was inspired by a playground theme, rabbits, flare skirt, white clogs, I seriously didn't feel like I'm going to be 20 this year. Maybe this outfit isn't ladylike at all, but being childish for one time isn't a fault, is it? Paired my outfit with my favorite bag at the moment from Furla, it's leather-made but not heavy at all!

All photos were taken in one of the most mainstream place to take outfit post (I bet you know where this is....), I was so excited because the decoration for Chinese New Year is really amazing. A special thank you for my talented mom as my personal photographer

See you in another post! 

p.s: Notice my new blog template? And yes, it's also my own name for the blog title! :) No more Lisa and Her World thing because it's too selfish yet overrated, tbh.

Beatrice Quarters | Puri Indah Expansion

Friday the 13th so far might be one of the best moment in February, because I finally caught up with my high school buddies! That week was the most boring week in my holiday, because I managed to meet some of my high school friends on Tuesday, but flood in Jakarta made us hold our plan. That whole week I had nothing to do at home since there was flood in my neighborhood. But thank God it wasn't raining hard on Thursday and Friday and finally I could meet my friends!

At first we had no idea where we would eat, but finally we chose this mainstream restaurant called Beatrice Quarters. I've been to Beatrice Quarters PIK, so this was my second time to lunch. I bought my dslr to take some outfits but I couldn't resist to take pictures of those beautiful food. So here it is, some photos I managed to take :)

I am neither food photographer nor food lover so pardon me if the review isn't that good. If you have some questions feel free to ask beloooow!

Beatrice Quarters at Puri Indah Expansion is much bigger than PIK's, but I love PIK's decor more. It is a decent place for you who want instagramable photos with your friends, the lighting is perfect, the place is light at noon so you'll get perfect instagram photos. Although the room is big, I feel like it's too much table there so it looks like it's a little bit narrow. The wall is painted with pink color so it gives more excitement for me (fyi I am a pink lover lol)

P.s: I totally forgot to take the bill, so pardon me for not showing the price... As I remembered, the prices of food we ordered are around Rp 50.000- Rp 80.000. We ordered 'Burgundy' for beverage, but it's a bit pricey for me and a jar of burgundy (+ it's upsized) wasn't enough for 7 people.... It was cost around Rp 600.000 for 7 of us.

Here's what we ordered:
Chicken Aglio Olio (no chili)
I don't really into Italian dish, but this is absolutely good! I really like that it's not creamy. The seasoning is also good, really like it! Argh I'm not a foodies so I'm not that good in describing food taste but this is good. It's also not that pricey, though. The spaghetti was a bit overcooked, but overall it's good!

Meat Lovers Rice Pizza Large
As reviewed by my friends: It tasted good, but not that special for a 'Rice Pizza' (kurang greget, katanya). The dish cooked well and it's quite big for a large size. Love the idea, usually pizza is made from dough but this one is pretty unique, made from rice! 

Carbonara Bacon and Egg
As reviewed by my friend:
It tasted good and for this kind of food with price around Rp 58.000,00, very worth it. The fetucines cooked well and I really love the bacon. The only thing that made me give a minus point is that the cream was too much and it was too oily, so it made me queasy. But overall it's good. 

Les Japonais Mussels and Seafood
As reviewed by my friend: It is good but not that special, rated upper average. Overall it's a good meal but the presentation wasn't that good, there are a bit sauce in the side of the plate. The seafood portion didn't reach my expectation, it's too little :p

 Beef Aglio Olio
As reviewed by my friend:
It's not really good for me. I made a wrong choice. The fried onions are bitter. It would be better if they added tomato sauce or chili sauce. Besides, I like how the spaghetti cooked well, yet they added slices of chili for garnish.

Les Japonais Beef
As reviewed by my friend: 
It's good but I didn't get that 'western feel' in this dish. The fetucines were overcooked so it's not al den te. But I love the taste, and for the price, it's worth.

Banana Choco Honey Toast
I've tasted the Classic Honey Toast before, and for me it's just the same with this one except for the topping. The only thing that ruined this dessert is the cream that tasted like butter :( I didn't really like the butter taste, but overall, it's pretty good! Love the bread texture inside that gigantic bread :p

All reviews are all honest opinion by my friends.... So pardon me if those comments are a bit sarcastic somewhat, but I wrote as honest as I can based on their personal opinion.
