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.

Christmas Getaway

On December 25th, my family and I decided to go for a vacation to the land of smile, Thailand. We went to two cities which are Pattaya and Bangkok for 5 days. Some people may say that Thailand is just pretty similar with Indonesia, but in my own opinion, Thailand is much more developed than Indonesia. For example, they can show their culture by showing some great shows for tourists, such as Siam Niramit and Alcazar Show. Moreover, they have provided tap water for people while Indonesia hasn't. There are lots of stuffs which made me change my first expectation to Thailand. 
In this post, I wanna show you some outfits I wore when I visited Thailand. More stories in the next post!

DAY 1 - WHITE CHRISTMAS
White Bee Nen top - Boyfriend jeans - Dheyshu shoes - Paris Hilton bag  - Michael Kors watch
First photo was taken in front of Holy Mary statue at a random hotel where we took lunch. Second photo was taken at Pattaya Floating Market. White Christmas; because it was Christmas day, but instead of wearing those christmas tree color, I chose white and pale blue as my Christmas outfit. Frozen inspired?

DAY 2 - SUMMER MONOKROM
Moscato Top - Jocel skorts -Fitflop slippers - Paris Hilton bag - MK watch - Oasap fedora
Photos were taken in Nong Nooch Village, which in my opinion is the best garden I've ever visited. It is winter in four-weather countries, but in Thai it is always summer. I really love black and white outfit, so I wore those color although it's summer. (Always summer, actually.)

DAY 3 - SAILORING SAILOR

Bee Nen top - Heart print pants - Dheyshu shoes - Paris Hilton bag - MK watch
Sailoring sailor; I managed to wear sailor-inspired outfit in order to match the hotel's theme. A-One Pattaya is a hotel whose buildings are in boat-shape. The hotel's employees are also dressed in sailor outfit. I am always excited for everything related to sailor!

DAY 4 - PINK FLOYD
Nyla top  - Boyfriend jeans - Dheyshu shoes - Paris Hilton bag - MK watch - Oasap fedora
Have no idea why I took 'Pink Floyd' as a nickname for this outfit, but as far as I know, Pink Floyd is a rock band from UK. The name is pretty dope so, yeah.

Notice if I use quirky nickname for every outfits I've posted? Yes, it is inspired from Jenn Im from Clothesencounters! She's one of my biggest fashion inspiration and I am always happy when I see every names she made for her outfits. Which outfit is your favorite? Tell me in the comments below! :)

Clean Edge

Joel top - No brand jegging - Nine West heels - Guess bag

Well, hello guys! How is it going? Firstly I want to thank you all because I finally achieved 100.000+ pageviews. I actually have neglected my blog since I become a college student. I only posted some drafts I've made before and I felt really really lazy to reply your comments. I apologize for my laziness, it's my guilty, I know. To be honest, I once thought that I'm going to stop blogging for a while, because I enjoy taking photos by myself via iphone (and self timer, of course) and post them to my instagram. It is more comfortable for me as I don't have to ask anyone to take photos of me. Fyi, I didn't go out with those high heels. I only use them for special occasion, for example weddings and parties. They were worn only to match my bag! Peace lol Xx
