DELUXSHIONIST AT JIMBARAN BAY ON BALI TRAVEL

JIMBARAN BAY VISUAL DIARY - Jimbaran is one of a kind area in Bali, not very happening but also not very quiet, you can say it's lively, you can change quiet to happening very quickly, it's just 10 minutes away. If you find Kuta beach too much crowded, Jimbaran is the best substitution for that kind similar beach. The other things about Jimbaran is this area definitely the heaven of seafood, well you will get seafood in Bali very easly, but when you in Jimbaran, you can pick the fresh alive fish or anything and you know what I mean, this is the place. 

Best time to visit Jimbaran : Afternoon - Evening
What to do : Waiting for sunset with the real coconut or a coffee, and for the next is to enjoy your seafood dinner. Experience another side of Bali, in very casual way.

Actually I have another visual diary when I in Ubud & Kuta *definitely*, but I can't wait to go back to Bali and want to explore more in Ubud and Canggu... we'll see yaaa :)

DELUXSHIONIST AT KARMA JIMBARAN BALI

DELUXSHIONIST AT KARMA JIMBARAN - Another paradise in the other side of Bali, well not really the other side, because Jimbaran actually so close with Kuta and the Airport but I was a bit confused when the driver take me here from Karma Kandara, I was like, I thought it would be miles away from the crowd in fact I was wrong, only 5 minutes walking to the public Jimbaran Bay and around 15 minutes walking through the line to local seafood heaven everything, and for you party goers, IDR 100K away from Seminyak (by a cab-but praise the lord-I believe you-will not going home-by yourself-if you know what I mean-lol)

They are much bigger than I got in Karma Kandara, I mean of course it's depend on the room you choose, this one now is 3 bedrooms luxury villa, with only 40 villas divided into 1-4 bedrooms all with private pool, Karma Jimbaran is a sanctuary among the crowds, where you get the serenity to enjoy your private morning sunshine with a cup of your favorite tea, you will fall for this.

In my 3 bedrooms luxury villa
- There is 1 main bedroom in second floor with bathroom and bathtub
- 1 bedroom underneath with queen size bed and outdoor shower
- 1 smaller bedroom with twin share bed next to it, also with their own bathroom.
- Separate room is family room with long table, kitchen, a living room and toilet (partyyy)
- 1 definitely cozy swimming pool

so much more in The Karma Jimbaran Facts (soon)

In love with the gate's villa and its surrounding and if you are into walking, you are in the perfect place, no need buggy a man, and you can use the public beach as much as you want to walking, I have done it, but not in the morning because the tide tend to be in higher level, more on my Jimbaran Bay Visual Diary (soon)

Afternoon walking is recommended, after sunset go back to villa and ready for dinner at Karma Lounge, very chic small restaurant to chill at night with a glass of wine, great food and a strains of a piano, very classic very romantic, warm as you to experiences this with family. I saw some old couple, younger couple (probably on their honeymoon) and some British family, I am so glad to see them happy and enjoy their Karma Jimbaran as I do. One thing I missed was, why I forgot to greet the chef when my Grilled White Snapper was so great with those delish local sambal matah, must go back and order some.

TRAVEL TO MACAU DELUXSHIONIST
Reruntuhan St. Paul's Cathedral 

WHY MACAU? - Why not? Ada banyak alasan untuk berwisata ke Macau, itu adalah jawaban langsung jika saya ditanya tentang keinginan untuk mengunjungi Macau, memang belum banyak yang saya tahu tentang Macau dibandingkan dengan region lain yang termasuk dalam wilayah kekuasaan Tiongkok, tapi itulah alasan mengapa Macau menjadi sangat spesial. Beberapa kali saya mendengar tentang Macau, baik dari film, internet maupun ketika teman berkunjung kesana, seperti layaknya beberapa wilayah Asia yang pernah dijajah negeri Eropa, Macau sampai saat ini mempertahankan sejarah itu melalui warisan budaya, termasuk diantaranya arsitektur dan kuliner.

Bagi yang belum pernah kesana termasuk saya, saya membayangkan bahwa Macau akan banyak menawarkan kekayaan berupa arsitektur bernuansa Eropa yang megah dan tersebar di penjuru kota, lalu saya mulai mencari informasi tentang Macau, benar saja dari beberapa foto yang saya temukan bahwa nuansa kolonial begitu terasa di bangunan-bangunan di Macau, well ini menarik sekali dan bahkan rasanya seperti tidak asing karena negara kita pun faktanya pernah dijajah, namun Macau berhasil merawat kelestarian bangunannya dengan apik sehingga menjadi destinasi wisata yang mengaggumkan, sudah seharusnya semua warisan bangunan Eropa di negeri ini juga dirawat seperti itu, layaknya bangunan-bangunan di Macau. Tapi hal ini tak lantas menutup Macau dari moderenisasi, jadi tidak salah jika Anda berkunjung ke Macau, nuansa klasik sekaligus modern bisa Anda rasakan sekali datang ke Macau.

Terus apa sih yang bisa kita dapat kalau berkunjung ke Macau? Tepatnya apa sih yang bakal saya lakukan kalau suatu saat berkunjung kesana, rule #1 take a lot of shoots (maksudnya foto ya bukan minum lol), begitu indahnya landskap Macau, sebagai orang yang mencintai fashion dan kegiatan traveling, sudut kota Macau jelas menjadi pemandangan yang wajib untuk diabadikan, tapi kira-kira mesti kemana aja ya? Okay, sebelum menyusun itinerary, ada baiknya untuk buat mapping tentang hal apa aja sih yang paling penting saat liburan, mari kita bikin mapping tentang Macau.

WHERE TO STAY?
Saya yakin akan banyak pilihan dan konsep yang disediakan oleh hotel-hotel di Macau, mulai yang mewah modern seperti Four Season Hotel Macau, bergaya khas Portugis seperti Pousada De Sao Tiago Hotel ataupun yang simple seperti Best Western Taipa Hotel.

Pousada De Sao Tiago Hotel Macau

WHERE TO GO?
Mulai dari Museum, pusat & taman kota, bangunan-bangunan bersejarah termasuk Kuil dan Gereja, bahkan Mall, yuk bahas satu per satu.

Bangunan bersejarah dengan ceritanya tersendiri menjadi wajib karena ini merupakan bagian dari kota Macau sendiri, UNESCO sendiri telah menyatakan ini sebagai warisan dunia, diantaranya reruntuhan gereja St. Paul’s Chatedral yang dibangun tahun 1580, Kuil abad ke-15 A-Ma Temple, landmark seperti Senado Square dan mengunjugi gereja yang masih aktif digunakan Church of St. Dominic, atau "warisan dunia" lainnya seperti  Holy House of Mercy, St. Joseph's Church, Moorish Barracks dan lainnya

Dengan kota penuh sejarah seperti Macau, pasti ada kota tuanya dong? Tentunya, kamu bisa menjelajah Old Taipa Village, area yang begitu indah untuk kita berwisata kuliner, ya karena disini banyak café-café berjejeran dengan nuansa bangunan berwarna pastel. Belum lagi Museu de Macau (Macau Museum), jangan sampai terlewatkan untuk tahu sejarah Macau lebih dalam, Macau Museum of Art, bagi kamu yang suka seni desain, atau Macau Science Center, ini namanya 3 in 1; klasik, kontemporer dan modern, walau masih banyak museum yang lain.

TRAVEL TO MACAU DELUXSHIONIST


Kalau ingin merasakan yang lebih modern bisa berkunjung ke Macau Tower, landmark modern kota Macau ini meliliki tinggi sekitar 338 meter, tentunya Anda bisa menikmati view kota Macau dari sini tepat dari lantai 58. Masih kurang, tantang adrenalin Anda dengan mencoba SkyWalk atau mungkin SkyJump, ya dari atas Macau Tower, seru kan sepertinya? Atau kalau kamu anak mall, Kota besar pasti identik dengan Mall kan? Mungkin terlalu bosan mall lagi mall lagi, karena kebanyakan isinya sama saja kan? Namun suasannya kan pasti berbeda, seperti Venetian Mall Macau, dari namanya mall ini memang menawarkan nuansa kota venesia, Italia, jadi tidak usah jauh-jauh dulu ke Venesia, kita pun bisa menikmati gondola indoor disini.

TRAVEL TO MACAU DELUXSHIONIST

WHAT TO RIDE?
Transportasi publik di Macau paling banyak berupa Bus dan taksi, tapi jika Anda pecinta jalan kaki seperti saya, Macau sepertinya kota yang ramah untuk pejalan kaki, atau jika ada pilihan untuk bersepeda, mengapa tidak? Kamu pun bisa mencoba cableway, stasion Cable Guia yang berada di Guia Hill, Macau Peninsula, menghubungkan Jardim da Flora dengan Pargue Municipal da Colina da Guia (susah ya namanya, inilah Macau) 80 detik pengalaman untuk melihat panorama kota yang memukau termasuk Guia Fortress , atau mencoba moda transportasi tradisional keliling semenit dua menit :)

TRAVEL TO MACAU DELUXSHIONIST

WHAT TO WATCH?
Kota hiburan seperti Macau menyuguhkan beberapa atraksi yang bisa kamu nikmati, diantaranya pertunjukkan House of Dancing Water dan Macau’s Giant Panda Pavillion, bahkan di malam hari pun Macau masih tetap menjadi kota yang semarak dengan lampu menyala warna-warni dimana-mana.

TRAVEL TO MACAU DELUXSHIONIST

WHAT TO EAT?
Tiada lengkap rasanya kalau berkunjung ke suatu tempat tanpa merasakan makanan lokalnya bukan? Tentunya bukan Chinese food yang sudah kita kenal sebelumnya, tapi lebih ke perpaduan antara masakan Eropa khususnya portugis yang berpadu dengan Chinese food, istilahnya kuliner peranakan mulai dari noodle, seafood, dan bakery khas Macau. Makanan seperti Galinha à Portuguesa, Galinha à Africana (African chicken), Pato de cabidela, Macanese chili shrimps, & Minchi yang kaya akan rempah dan rasa, atau makanan sekali-dua-kali-gigit seperti ginger milkpastéis de nata (Portuguese egg tarts), dan almond cake. #Yummers (Kalau ini lebih baik nanti dicoba sendiri yaaa)

Portuguese Egg Tart, Minchi & Ginger Milk Pudding

Dari semua daftar atau mapping sederhana diatas, Macau pastinya akan menjadi destinasi asik bagi saya dan kamu yang cinta akan keindahan desain, menulis dan fotografi, dengan apa yang ditawarkan oleh Macau sebagai tempat wisata yang bisa menawarkan berbagai hal sekaligus, tentu akan banyak cerita menarik yang bisa dibuat berdasarkan pengalaman nyata, bahkan mungkin tidak bisa habis dinikmati hanya dalam waktu yang singkat, tapi nikmatinya saja, siapa tahu bisa datang kembali. Sepertinya masih banyak yang bisa Macau berikan dan tentunya kamu harus mengalaminya sendiri, iya dong? Akankah saya berpetualang menyusuri kota Macau, #DeluxshionistGotoMacau? Wish me luck ;)

READY FOR FALL: THE JACKET 
- Even summer is not ended yet, but yes you must be ready for the fall season, it's September.  Some of you might have prepared some great coats and furs, but there is a particular trend among men in fashion about layering for fall even winter. Might be it wasn't something new but style evolving with new fashion create look that very interesting to be copied of course with your own touch, your individual of styling and dressing yourself up.

You can take some or even bunch of inspirations from all the men in Pitti Uomo during Milan Men's Fashion Week every year, every season, and it's going viral to Paris and New York, and now we are talking about all kind of outerwears all put together in one look, outer like and you can change your innerwear with kind of warm polo instead of usual shirt wear inside the suit . Back to the ancient well-dressed up gentlemen, when there was only one color for the whole look; black, grey, brown start from underwear, shirt, t-shirt, vest, jacket, then coat, do not get me wrong, people tend to dress like this but maybe now with more colors and modern sharp look. But people get bored, moreover, these days when we have always provoked about being yourself in term of style, we search for something new and groundbreaking, but the cool look is a cool look, everyone wants to be cool.

What a phenomenon of layering in Men's fashion lately, and more interesting fact, the jacket could be a summer pieces like leather biker jacket, or keep it warm with fine knitted cashmere inside, when men in slim fit suit wearing jacket over it, when the other of course wearing the longer jacket or coat even bomber jacket. So why you are not trying this look just for Fall season?

ACNE STUDIOS MONK STRAP MEN'S SHOES

ACNE STUDIOS MONK STRAPS - Is time to buy a new shoes? maybe yes maybe no, but Acne Studios recently iconic pointy toe are drives me crazy (it's very chic good), it's good in every way also if we are talking about monk strap shoes. Too much classic so that on my mind only Brioni and some other Italian brands who can pull it off with a fine result.

I have been thinking that monk strap would be forever classic, but it's reinterpreted by Alexander McQueen who applied it into triple monk straps in theirs boots and now Acne Studios served and styled it into modern classic twisted calf leather double monk strap in black with a pointy toe, not to mention their bold soles. It is very fashionably handsome isn't it? Acne Studios keeps producing some great and fine goods, I admired their simple casual and modern spirit, so with their Jam Slim Fit Washed Denim Jacket 

Price at USD 690, with no idea shipping fee, but this Acne Studios double monk straps shoes might will be your next shoes collection, or maybe another shop wishlist?
