Head north to The Playroom + Milkbar

 

So there’s a fairly-upscale, billiard-equipped, trending new space opened 3 weeks ago in Pantai Indah Kapuk (Yeap, another one).

FotorCreated

The space covers 2 separate business joints, with one offering your meals and another a bar for enjoying ice creams. It’s located right beside Optik Melawai, so you’ll find it on the street parallel to Tekko, Leko, and Sate Khas Senayan.

Stuff I recommend other than galettes at Kitchenette, Jakarta

 

By now I’m sure you’re no stranger to Kitchenette, one of the few hot spots in town that are still hot. Part of the reason is because it’s owned by local F&B giant Ismaya Group. They’ve been tested through time and budding groups of competitors in recent years, but the group only continues to grow because they’ve done a great job at keeping up with quality standards.

November 2014: Monthly Roundup

 

November’s been a really fast one. I didn’t get to update as frequently as I did for the last couple of months here, but I’m so excited about preparing my boutique :) Don’t worry – I’m not going anywhere, but you can expect to see more of “the real me” here (a.k.a. the silly, not-so-serious, pig-loving girl).

november2014-01

I know I’ve been writing in a very formal tone for most of my posts, but I want to change that. In real life I’m a really private person, and I’m never the one who takes things at face value, so I love digging information way before I put my trust on something and/or buy an idea/product/service. In case you haven’t noticed, I keep myself afloat of the scientific literature – PsychologyToday and ScienceDaily are basically my daily cups of tea. While the things I talk about here aren’t necessarily my areas of expertise, I’m still a woman who’s interested in what many women are interested in – wellness, beauty, eats, the general buzz, and cute stuff, and basically all facts-backed, evidence-based stuff stripped away from all the marketing fluff. I figure I can use my inquisitions to serve you and help you make better decisions in life, just as I do with mine.

I’m confident Stillwater ladies are smart ones who take my content with a grain of salt too, and that’s why I can only change my tone, but never the facts. Aside from my family, this year I’m most thankful for you gals. Help me learn how to be more “personal” as I break down my own walls. As William Lyon Phelps once said, “I divide readers into two classes: Those who read to remember and those who read to forget,” and the blog is the result of the useful, sometimes novel, other times entertaining, yet always important things I feel we all need to remember as women. Hope le Stillwater November 2014 issue helps:

 

♥ health + wellness

 

♥ beauty + style

 


♥ eats + trips

 

♥ buzz + culture

 

etc

You’ve probably seen the bag charm and Murakami’s latest hit before around here.

But you’ve only met Ocha the pig recently through my Instagram, and he’s 100% made of love.

Be the first to hear about him, because our online boutique is coming soon. We bring you select lifestyle products (like the T-shirt above) featuring Ocha, his friends, and a whole lotta cuteness.

Stay tuned for updates ;)

Stuff from the Mediterranean sea at Plan B

 

This place has been on my wish list for months, as I’ve been craving a lot of Spanish food these days.

FotorCreated

Since Plan B is closed on Sundays, it’s gotten itself higher on my priority list. Besides, it’s one of those rare Spanish restaurants in town that are authentic – all the more reason I hesitate no more.

October 2014: Monthly roundup

 

As always, here’s your binge-read serving. Even though I’m pretty structured with my content, I still find it amazing how at the end of the day (in this case, the month), your blog truly reflects you. I caught a fever this month and the amount of wellness posts just don’t sum up to other arenas of the blog. It’s crazy – Stillwater’s getting more like a mirror that reflects everything in life that I feel is great and lovely and beautiful. At the same time, in real life I’m slowly accepting who I am regardless of everything. Surely blogging has become a way I can be proactive about my evolution as a woman – it gets you out of the victim mentality. I love it whenever I find out it’s helping someone and/or is useful to someone. One day I’m going to write about a behind-the-scenes post here (and how really time-sucking it can get), but for now, I’ll stop blabbering. Here’s October for ya. Happy reading :)

Mega Italian feast at Mamma Rosy #ZomatoFoodieMeetup

 

I’ve recommended this restaurant to practically everyone who asked me where they should go to get some Italian fix in Jakarta.

Sooo it’s not that hard to picture how excited I was when I found out my second meetup with the Foodies is going to be at Mamma Rosy :p
