Tulip Mania 2017 at Gardens By The Bay, Singapore

There is always something about me and the tulips, well at least that's what I think:D I remembered my one year in the Netherlands (during my student exchange program in high school), when I was riding bicycle and I saw tulips along the way. 

I haven't had the chance to see the tulips again in the Netherlands ever since. Actually the plan is on our bucketlist to go back to the Netherlands, we just have to wait few more years when the lebaran holiday is around April or May, the same period as the tulips. Perhaps another two or three years to go.

Gardens By The Bay, my happiest place in Singapore, held this what so called Tulip Mania Festival since 2013. Of course I went to see the festival back in 2013, all by myself. You can check out the link here. And now in 2017, I went all alone by myself to see the tulips once more.

It started when I realized that we had a holiday on Wednesday during the Jakarta's governor election. Mr.husband's office is located outside Jakarta, so unfortunately he doesn't have one day off from the office. But he let me to travel solo to Singapore. The problem was, I forget how it feels to travel solo anymore hahaha..

But I made it to Gardens by The Bay, and these tulips said hello to you all.

Ibis Styles Bogor: A Family Friendly Hotel in Bogor

Bogor is our second hometown after Bandung. We often go to Bogor everytime we miss Bandung. Many times we do a daytrip to Bogor, but sometimes we also stay over night.

When I was searching for a hotel in Bogor for our weekend getaway, I stumbled at Ibis Styles Bogor. I remember staying at Novotel Bogor before for our office meeting, but I have never heard that there is a newly opened Ibis Styles Bogor.

I checked the location of Ibis Styles bogor, and it was perfect. It is away from hustle and bustle of the city, and surrounded by greenery. The hotel is set in a quiet location, where you can have your morning walk or cycling time with your family.

But not only the surrounding that surprised me, the hotel is meant to be a very family friendly hotel, with so many facilities for the kids. 

All these trees in front of 
Ibis Styles Bogor welcomed us :)

Staycation at Holiday Inn Express Jakarta International Expo Kemayoran

When we don't have any long weekend to spend for a getaway but still feel like going somewhere, what we do is taking a family staycation. We book a room in a hotel located in Jakarta, and we spent one or two nights at the hotel.

Location wise, we prefer to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Jakarta. Kemayoran area is one of our fave area as it is minutes away from Ancol. We have stayed many times in Kemayoran area, and this time we were invited by Holiday Inn Express Jakarta International Expo.

What really surprising was the design of the hotel. Holiday Inn Express is famous for "We Keep It Simple and Smart" concept, but I still feel the luxurious touch at the lobby as well as the restaurant where we had our breakfast on the next day. 

We did not miss the opportunity to take picture on its most instagramable spot at the lobby:)
