Jakarta… Oh Jakarta…

Wow! Here I am, at Burger King Rest Area Cibubur (at jagorawi toll road) in 00.03am…
Hujan yang dimulai tadi sore dan memang cukup lebat ternyata berdampak besar pada jalanan di jakarta, and i have no idea about it until i’ve got stuck in the traffic for about 4 hrs and still nowhere near my destination..

Jakarta.. Oh Jakarta..
Setelah lama nggak ngepost di blog, saya merasa cukup penting untuk menulis saat ini, jika tidak saya rasa kepala saya akan meledak dengan kekaguman atas kota Jakarta ini..

Hujan gede walau hanya 3 jam saja bisa = banjir hingga 20cm atau bahkan selutut orang dewasa dan tentu saja = macet!

Huh hah..
Tadi saya dari hotel Kaisar sekitar pukul 08.00 malam lewat jalan raya pasar minggu menuju UNAS karena harus menjemput calon adik ipar #eaaa, sampai di UNAS sekitar pukul 10 malam loh… Jadi saya terjebak macet sekitar 2jam, yang seharusnya bisa ditempuh hanya paling lama 30 menit saja.. *ngosngosan*

Dari UNAS jemput Mr.J dulu di Kalibata biar dia yg nyetir sampe depok dan saya bisa tertidur dengan cantiknya, berharap ketika bangun sudah sampe didepok.. Ternyata, ketika saya bangun sekitar pukul 23.30 masih di daerah poltangan *siyok* dan kondisi jalan menuju Tj. Barat tidak memberikan harapan yang indah, sehingga setelah kami buka situs lewatmana.com dan twitter @TMCPoldaMetro kami memutuskan untuk mutar lewat jalan tol saja, biar jauh asal gak macet! Hehehe akhirnya setelah bermacet-macet menuju pinto tol, kami bisa menikmati jalanan lancar dan akhirnya Mr.J bisa makan malam dengan tenang… 😀

….etapi perjalanan masih panjaaaaaangggggggggggg

Wedding + Traffic Jam + Nite Sale = Great Food


Yes! another weekend to spend with him, my lovely Mr.J …


nope, not my wedding, at least, not yet.

last Saturday, I went to a wedding in Cibubur and it was a tiring journey, due to the saturday afternoon traffic jam in Jakarta, worst!

It  was a wedding of Mr.J’s friend which was held in Wiladatika, Cibubur. The building name is Pandan Sari. It is quite beautiful, with high ceiling, white and has terrace for the guest reception. The size of the building is medium for around 500 guests or less.

.grabbed it from here, not exactly from the wedding we came.

How about the decoration? hm.. i couldn’t tell you whether there was good or bad decoration since we arrived there around 01.20 pm while the invitation wrote that the ceremony is only from 11.00 am to 01.00 pm, so at the time we finally arrived there, the decoration was a messed! *people were redecorating it for the next wedding ceremony*. argh.. that is why I don’t want to hold my wedding here in Jakarta, or at least, if I had to hold it here, I want it to be an evening ceremony.. *pray-pray-pray so hard* 🙂

The dishes? Although the room were under redecorating, they left some dishes for late-guests like us, but I totally had lost my appetite because of this messy things. I only try the salad and it was  a masterpiece! *oke, ini lebay* *but really, it was so delicious!* and after Mr. J finished chit-chat with his friends and took a pose with the newly wed couple, we were heading directly to the Mosque, Mr. J hadn’t pray yet.

Done the Shalat Dzuhur, I suddenly feel so hungry and i’ve been craving for Spaghetti Aglio e Olio since i’ve tried that dishes in Aston Rasuna when my father visited me last month. We finally choose to go to Pizza Marzano Kemang for the afternoon snack *yes, pizza and pasta is Snacks!* 😀 and thanks to The Traffic Jam + wrong route decision by Mr.J, we arrived at Kemang around 4 pm! i was really hungry at that time, I felt like I could eat Mr.J for taking the wrong way! grrhhh.. *but I still love you a’… hihihiii

at Pizza Marzano, I ordered Spaghetti and Dough ball as side dishes *because i am so HUNGRY*, Mr. J ordered Pizza . When the food finally came, we finished those delicious foods right away so that I forgot to take the pictures. I love the Spaghetti, it was flooded by the Olive oil and taste so delicious but the pizza was not thin enough for me that i don’t like it so much, the dishes of the day was the dough ball with the garlic sauce. The sauce was rocking my tummy! 🙂


.our empty plates.. yummiy!.

Driving through all the traffic made Mr.J wanted to relax a while and he wanted to go creambath and I was dying to buy some new books, so after finished all the dishes, we went to PIM (i don’t exactly remember why we chose to go to PIM :D). PIM turned out to be the wrong destination again because there was a nite sale at that night in PIM and you can imagine how bad the traffic was (we need about 30 minutes just to park the car!) and the mall was SO CROWDED that gave me dizzy… having lost our intention to done anything there, we decided to go back home and called it a day.

Do you think that our journey to my house was an easy adventure? nope, hm.. honestly, I don’t know, I could only remember that Mr.J complaining about Traffic jam around Ragunan or somewhere else which is usually not a crowded street, was packed with cars at that night. I was falling asleep all the way home… poor Mr.J who struggle alone through the streets. *i do really love you! :p

In Sunday, we actually had decided to just chilling out at home, relax and just take a rest. I’ve spent my morning eating mangos, oranges, and any fruits left that I could eat *due to my laziness to cook and in the name of diet*, watching Star World and working with my uphile. Around noon, Mr.J called me and reminded me that we have one disdus voucher for gold facial treatment in Wonder Skin Tebet, he asked whether i wanted to go there or not, since i have nothing to eat for lunch, i agreed to go there. He made the reservation and he told by the receptionist there that there were no need to make a reservation, we just need to go there and they are closed in 5 pm. Mr.J picked me at 2 pm and we arrived there around 3 and thank you for the miscommunication between Mr.J and the receptionist, we couldn’t done the treatment that day (They need 2 hrs for the treatment and they are not accepting customer after 3 because they afraid there will not enough time and they full, they thought that when Mr.J called them, we’ll go there straightaway).

Rescheduling and reserving the treatment for next Saturday morning, we hurried toward Radjaketjil for very late lunch.

Radjaketjil is a restaurant I knew from Twitter and so curious to taste the food, turns out to be a VERY DELICIOUS foods! we ordered Hainan Rice for two, Cameo putri baik hati, Seafood Soup, black pepper beef and Fried Cassava for side dishes. I LOVE IT! I just love it. I highly recommended this restaurant for you all, especially the “Singkong goreng”, so crunchy and hm.. i just so in love with cassava.. 😀 Mr. J has Red bean Ice as the drink and I drank Terong Belanda Juice.

.The Menu.

.my hungry face.
.stunning dishes.
.my favorite: Singkong Goreng.

Every food tasted so good and the drinks completed the wonderful dishes. Radjaketjil also comforted us by their cozy environment + the rain poured outside. It was the perfect closing for my weekend. Thanks to Mr.J, you completed my life again.. 🙂

.cozy place + gloomy afternoon.

prosa pekerja

dingin ini menusuk tulangku,,

hadirkan sekelebat lelah yang menggantung,,

terpaksa memaksakan mata membuka,,

demi sejengkal rezeki yang dapat dikais hari ini,,

telah lama aku merindukan pagi seperti dulu,,

dimana aku masih bisa menyapa matahari dengan senyum,,

melambai kepada embun,,

dan melangkah pelan menyusuri rerumputan,,

kini tak mungkin aku bisa kembali menelaah pagi,,

beban dipundak ini terlalu berat untuk diajak melangkah perlahan,,

liur serigala itu terlalu menakutkan untuk dibiarkan mengejar,,

semuanya kini sedang berpusar,,

pada langkah yang kini tergesa,,

pada nafas yang kini berpacu,,

di sela asap dan keringat yang membaur,,

dinaungan awan yang kehilangan cerahnya,,

kini aku disini,,

bersama para pemburu lainnya,,

memburu kesempatan untuk tetap hidup esok hari,,
