Jogjakarta : POP! Hotel Timoho, Bakpia Kurniasari, Lippo Plaza, Waroeng SS, Krisna’s wedding

Standard

8 July 2017. I flew from CGK to JOG at around 1 pm. When I arrived at JOG, I headed directly toward POP! Hotel Timoho (on Jl. Ipda Tut Harsono No.11, Muja Muju, Umbulharjo, Jogjakarta) to check in.

My room is on the 6th floor. I occupied the room along with my friend, Kiki. But we flew on different flights (Kiki arrived before me). When I reached JOG, Kiki was in Prambanan. I didn’t catch her up, because Jogja was utterly hot at the time, so that I decided to move directly to the hotel.

colorful bedroom :3

In jogjakarta, congestion is everywhere, almost similar to Jakarta, I think…. Kiki spent a lot of time to get to the hotel, therefore I decided to go to Bakpia Kurniasari (on Jalan Glagahsari No.91C, Warungboto, Umbulharjo, Jogjakarta) while waited for Kiki to arrive. I also intended to buy Wahyu Austin’s cheese roll, but 3 boxes of Bakpia Kurniasari were heavy enough for me to carry 😦

Finally, Kiki got to the hotel yay! After we had cleaned ourselves up, taken a rest for a while, and prayed, we headed to Lippo Plaza (on Jl. Laksda Adisucipto No. 32-34, Demangan, Gondokusuman, Jogjakarta), because Kiki had to buy some things that she realized she forgot to bring hehe.

Next, we went to Waroeng SS (on Jl Veteran No 122, Umbulharjo, Jogjakarta) for dinner. I intended to have Sate Klathak Pak Bari afterwards, but unfortunately Kiki don’t eat goat meat aaaa :”””’) thus, I canceled such plan…….

Waroeng SS

they costed us < IDR100K :9

We were delightfully full afterwards Alhamdulillah, hence we returned to the hotel, took a shower, prayed, watched tv, and had chit-chat, before we slept~

 

9 July 2017. We slept again after prayed Subuh, and eventually woke up at around 8 am. Then, we continued the chit-chat and watched tv until around 9.30. After we had taken a bath, we put makeup on, got dressed, packed our belongings, and check out. But, we still left the luggage at the reception desk.

Next, we headed to Jl. Siliran Lor, Panembahan, Kraton, Yogyakarta, to attend Krisna’s wedding. When we reached the venue, Krisna and his wife were doing sungkeman (an emotional moment where the bride and the groom ask blessing by kneel down in front of their parents).

No longer after, the reception was commenced, we queued to give handshake to Krisna and his wife, had lunch, took some photos, then we returned to the hotel to remove the makeup and change into casual look, because we will heading to Jakarta afterwards.

Bandung : Gambir Station, Bandung Station, Chara Hotel

Standard

16 October 2016. Since 17 October would be the wedding of Eta, Princess Jombs gang went to Bandung yippieeee, we made our weekend getaway at the same time 😀 I was the first person who departed from Gambir Station (Jakarta) at 12:45pm to Hall Station (Bandung), I rode Argo Parahyangan train. Next, Dea departed from Jakarta at 6pm by DayTrans shuttle. And the last, Ndai, Mba Hana, Rani, and Manda who departed from Gambir Station at 8pm.

I reached Bandung at 4pm and requested for an Uber ride directly afterwards. But in fact, there was a massive traffic jam in front of the station, my Uber arrived 30 minutes later…… Then, we headed to the place we stayed, Chara Hotel on Gatot Subroto Street (near Simpang Lima). I thought the hotel only around 3 km away from station, but I spent almost 1.5 hours to reach it heftz.

Such hotel is situated near Trans Studio Mall, as well as alun-alun, where you can find mainstream places to take an instagram-able picture hihi. Chara Hotel is in the same building as Amaia Spa. This building has an eye catching exterior. Unfortunately, the parking lot is small, and their tiny lobby is laid in the back corner, behind the parking space.

I got the hotel, and checked-in in a rush, because it was already 5:30pm, but I hadn’t salat asr hiks. My superior deluxe room is on 5th floor, very close to the colorful hotel restaurant. This room is (around) 30 sqm large room, which features 2 double beds, cable TV, and a bit slow wifi connection.

After I had prayed, I organized my belongings, prepared all the things to attend the wedding, then I felt hungry……… But it was raining outside huhu, I couldn’t go to Bakso Enggal / Batagor Burangrang / Martabak San Fransisco (jadi laper hehe), even thought it’s just around a 15 minutes walk from the hotel, it’s a pity for me! Therefore, I ordered crisp salt and chili tofu (tahu goreng cabe garam) from hotel restaurant, and it tasted delicious ❤

a half size portion of my crisp salt and chili tofu (tahu goreng cabe garam). I thought that I was so starving, so that I forgot to take photos before ate them just right after the waitress delivered the dish to my room hihi

Alhamdulillah I felt delightfully full afterwards. Then, I took a bath, salat, watched tv, and slept. Around 10pm, Dea arrived at the hotel, I woke up and had a nice chit-chat with her until the last group got the hotel at around 12am. Bon, let’s go to sleep everybody, bonne nuit!
