Pokenbir is a humble restaurant located at the lobby of an office building around Kuningan. It's the kind of place where the owner doesn't really rely on social media to promote their restaurant. I happened to know them because this whole one week, one of my group chat has been dominated with their name. My friends rave about this place so high that I have to go check them out. Oh, fyi, my friend knows this place from her friend that works in the building, so I guess Pokenbir rely on good words of their customers, and that's what a good restaurant really should be right? Mouth to mouth good words from satisfied customers instead of only huge endorsements in social media to promote their place. 

Ivy's Travel: Christmas Festive in Singapore

It always fun to be in Singapore during Christmas since we hardly see any Christmas celebration in Jakarta. Though I'm not Christian, I do admit Christmas decorations are the best. One of my bucket list is to be able see Christmas in New York in person.
This post won't be long, since I only want to show you what Christmas look like in Singapore. Orchard Road, the heart of the city, was filled with lights, Christmas trees and ornaments. A sight to the eyes.

I gotta say, I am a proud fried chicken gal. Of all junk food, fried chicken is arguably one that I mostly find hard to resist, after pizza. And when it comes to fried chicken, I am leaning more to Korean one rather than the popular American like KFC or Mcdonalds, I mean, I like them too, but something about Korean fried chicken is just so irresistible, and by something, I mean their crunchiness.

When it comes to listing a good let alone consistent cafe in Jakarta, I am positive that anyone who had been to Union would agree that they are in the top list. Since its opening till date, I am impressed on how consistent they are on keeping the food quality and taste, many arguably find hard to achieve. The success of Union can't be separated from the genius behind, Chef Adhika Maxi and Chef Karen Carlotta.

Although I'm not a coffee person, it is still exciting to see more and more coffee shops opened around my neighborhood. Especially the one that non coffee person could also enjoy, something like this. 

Ottoman's Coffee Brewers comes with interesting breakfast menu or if you prefer the trending word at the moment, we can call it brunch instead of breakfast. But before I get into that, I want to talk about their facad/ interior which was the first thing got me intrigued to enter the place. I love the sky blue color, makes them different than others which normally comes with black to get that monochromatic feels. I never thought blue actually looks good pairing with natural wood color.
