VLOG | Brunch at Common Grounds

Hello, Loves! Back to another weekend of September and I am so glad that I just finished with the Model United Nations conference. It went great and I spent for almost 5 days working in the conference discussing about the most neglected humanitarian crisis in the world at Lake Chad Basin and human capital crisis in African States. I was representing Libya and it was stressful yet fun!

This time I will be showing you one of my favorite places to have brunch at. They are renowned by serving the best of the best Western brunch like Eggs Benedict. But this time, I will be showing another menu of them. One of the dishes I ordered was Salted Caramel Pancake.

Look at the perfect plating and the caramelized banana in there, perfectly made with love. Oh, stop drooling over there. Instead of writing and spending too many words, let me make you drooling over some other dishes by checking this vlog out. Enjoy!

What do you think? I really love the foods they have in there, the vibes of the cafe is amazing but it would be much more amazing if it ain’t located in the mall however the foods they have there are really worth to taste.

That’s all I have for this weekend, I hope you like it and thanks for watching! Have a great weekend x

Summerbird (Bed and Brasserie): Was I Impressed?

Hello, Guys! Who likes to stroll around the city and look for new places? If you do, I have this one coming up for you!

Basically, this is the first post of “Odysseia” where I will start reviewing hidden gems in the cities or even countries I visit. Can I say yay to that for the very first post?

I was introduced by my friend to have a visit to this Bed and Brasserie located in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia. I was welcomed with vintagely cute interior. From that perspective, I might say that this place is better for youth.

The staffs are really nice and understanding which made me feel comfortable to stay longer for small talk with friends and photos indeed.


I ordered two coffees, a lattè and a cappuccino. I was expecting for some artsy foam on top but nope, just a cup of coffee. I didn’t order much since I was quite stuffed, I only ordered one mixed platter which has sausage, calamary, wedges, and onion rings in it. It tasted fine but a bit tasteless to me. More spices would be great.


SummerBird also has hotel in the upstairs with various rates. I didn’t stay but I loved to see the corridor with the vines which gave the homey look because they don’t have 20 rooms or above like hotels you always notice in general.

The tables for its cafe are not only downstairs but they are also available in upstairs along with the rooms. The vintage look of its cafe made me feel want to stay longer for another sip of coffee but unfortunately, the foods I ordered was fine but not outstanding.

To sum it up, here’s what I think about Summer Bird for my first impression.

Ambience (9 out of 10)
Food and Beverage (8 out of 10)
Service (9.5 out of 10)

Impression (8.8 out of 10)

Have you ever been here or interested enough to visit? Share what you think through the comment below. I will also do another reviews for Odysseia. I can’t wait to do it further! Thanks for reading ❤

New Year’s Tropical Eve Party at Ocha & Bella

Happy New Year 2017!

I hope you guys had a great year in 2016 and I wish you tons of luck for the next 12 months. Cheers for bright future!!

It’s been a while I had not posted a blog-post since decades perhaps and I am truly sorry for that since college has been hitting me really hard lately. But it’s now 2017! Forget about the past because you now have a blank paper to write on with new things. Well, this time before welcoming 2017, I would like to share some little experience I had in the last two hours of 2016.

_________

I had a chance to attend the Tropical New Year BBQ Party at the restaurant of Morissey Hotel, Ocha & Bella, accompanied by my sister as usual. The ambience was very Hawaiian since all the staffs were wearing floral shirts and casual short pants. Whereas I decided to look more different than the others, black and white outfit as usual.

I wore knit dress from Mango, followed by black trouser by Suite Blanco. And for the headscarf and accessories from The Executive. Last but not least, sling bag and high heels are from Charles and Keith.

The party went really fun until my sister’s coupon number was called and happened to receive the lucky draw. She won a dine-in voucher worth for 500 IDR. Later after that, my coupon number was called too. I didn’t even notice what gift I was actually receiving but when I came up to the stage, they handed me a bottle of white wine as a gift. If only I could drink, I might decide to open table for all the attendants here.

We savored the tropical party until the clock pointed at 12. Everyone stood up, blew the trumpets loudly and kissed each other. Very romantic for those who brought their partner. Very romantic.

So, that’s how I spent the new year’s eve of 2017. Everyone was outside enjoying the fireworks, hoping for magnificent moments to happen in 2017. I hope everyone had so much fun in the new year’s eve. Once again, happy new year 2017! 🙂
