MONTIGO RESORT'S BREAKFAST - All you can eat breakfast buffet style is my thing ;), I mean even if you're not really into eat anything, but I ended up taking anything on the display haha (but please, be responsible on this! I know it would be looking nice in the pictures, that your frame full of delicious attractive plates of food but seriously you need to finish every single plate). Montigo Resort Nongsa provides you range of (mostly) Indonesian traditional breakfast food, and of course basic western style breakfast, free coffee & tea, if you want to make it latte, just add those creamer sachet ;)
I made my own signature salad with the all fresh ingredients, I just love them especially for breakfast but after that is always followed by Full English Breakfast style haha. I love the weather of Nongsa, breakfast next to pool, so if you with your children, breakfast and morning swim will be no problem. But I told you that the weather was pretty hot, so if you deal with the exact weather do not forget the sunscreen.

BREAKFAST DAY 2 - Quite same experience, but Montigo Resort Nongsa always change their additional traditional dishes + OOTD #absolutely
SOUTH EAST ASIA TRAVEL WISHLIST 2015 - Make a travel plan for a whole year is pretty intriguing without make it less exciting. Although there would be some repeat or revisit particular places, travel and move your body to a new atmosphere and vibration is always different. Beach or tropical spot is essential, there are beach travel, mount & forest travel, history & cultural travel, spiritual travel and city travel. So this year I released my travel wishlist that scratched my mind since my last travel. Let's just write it down here and we will see it through the year.
Gili Islands, Lombok, Indonesia - Not a secret that Indonesia has so much to offer when we talking about beautiful islands and beaches. Everyone need to exposure to amount a big salt water at least once a year. Less than one hour from Denpasar, I think nothing's bad to hit this 3 Gili Islands; Gili Trawangan, Gili Air & Gili Meno once a time. Next summer?
Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta & Central Java, Indonesia - It's been 3 years since my last time visit Yogyakarta and I really want to comeback. There is 3 essentials things to do in Yogyakarta plus Central Java; Royal Palace, Temples & Culinary ;) ohhh take me here again
Yangon/Bagan/Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma) - I don't know, why I want to visit Myanmar but I think the whole country is still authentic and just beautiful when I see all the images. Old Bagan city that looks very magical when the sun's rising up.
Kota Kinabalu - Eastern Side of Malaysia (Borneo Island) - When I see this, I feel like in different side of Earth civilization. I am quite interested to hiking to this Mount Kinabalu, but I need to seeking more information about this, I am afraid that it's kinda require hiking permit... Well Kota Kinabalu has some beaches that worth visit too.
But there is always dream space for beyond SEA... likeeee the rest of the world ;)

STORY FROM PECHA KUCHA NIGHT - I can say that it was my longest public speaking so far, I was very nervous, so if you re-hearing my presentation, apparently you will realize that I was pretty nervous that night. It was a good experience to hear the story from the other side of fashion industry especially that happening here in Jakarta, Indonesia, met a new friends, sharing things that we have been doing for years, so people will get a better understanding about speakers experiences and of course my/our blogging activities that not only positive, but it's also earning, because we are all human being that also pay the
Because of the lack of focus too, I also mention the incorrect information about Pitti Uomo, it is should be held in Florence, not in Milan but it continued in Milan for Men's Fashion Week, so two business at a time, twice a year. But anyway, thank you for Pecha Kucha Jakarta, Maverick, Bank Mandiri and Liputan6.com

BBQ IN VILLA AT MONTIGO RESORT - It was a beautiful night with a moon and a far city light of Singapore and the city of Batam right there when we're enjoying our BBQ dinner delight. I always feel that BBQ is a romantic way to spend dinner with family and friends, we are need a lot of food during casual heart-to-heart conversation, everyone simply does know this.
With no Carbo, our BBQ came with 10 styles of sauces... From traditional "sambals" to tar tar to mint to soy with cayenne pepper (I have no idea the terminology ;p). I am quite believe that there will be always a distinctive technique in cooking, and I am not a chef so let it someone cooked it for us ;p. But the important thing how fresh these main ingredients; Vegetables, Seafood, Meat including chicken, beef and lamb, all grilled and I said, no need Carbo.
It started with reasonable and nice table setting in the afternoon, after all ready the BBQ chef started to cook at 7-ish, not so long until the first plate of appetite salad, then all the grilled things, fusion coconut water with syrup (some Westerner maybe prefer a
After a great more than 2 hours conversation, we end the night to thanked God for the food, friends, beautiful night and a great stay at Montigo Resort Nongsa... I still got some visual diary to share soon...

LUXURY MONTIGO RESORT NONGSA - I barely can't decide the cover but this is hidden gem for so many Indonesian, because it is only 40 minutes ferry ride from Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal in Singapore, that's why Montigo Resort Nongsa is more familiar for Singaporean market even Korean than (let's say) Jakarta. Why? beside it's need another trip to reach Batam, Jakartans still love the party than the calm and tranquil place like this, we can compared Kuta/Seminyak with Ubud when mostly Jakartans will be satisfy their desire of night life at of course Kuta or Seminyak. When it's hard to Imagine partying on the night under of Ubud sky, but it is something possible to do at Montigo, more to make your own group private party, 8 person or more at Tigo Bar while do a night swimming at main pool, now you can imagine that?
Batam Island, Kepulauan Riau province standing gorgeously 88 villas with 3-levels each and all heading to the South China Sea on 12-Hectare tropical land of West Indonesia. I can't help myself to called it a little Santorini, but no, Montigo Resort Nongsa has its own complexity and uniqueness. One resort that I know has 3-levels in each Villas.
1st Level is Living Room, kitchen, dinner table & private pool
2nd Level is Master Bedroom and Secondary Bedroom and Bathroom Bathtub
3rd Level is All white dreamy rooftop
My first impression of Montigo was the very open air reservation area, nice-friendly staff (absolutely, there is even a guest recognition staff, this is a good idea to make everyone feels welcome and special during the stay at Montigo) and salty air was welcoming us at the Villa.
Very spacious living room and bedroom that feels so modern yet so humble and homey. One of the best bathtub ever with surprisingly only 2-bottles of bubble bath by Argan to make it work and nice relaxing bath of the night :). More on Montigo Resort Nongsa Vol. 2...
We are talking about dinner, if you're lucky there is dinner at the beach, when mostly it happens at Pantai Restaurant with eastern menu or you can bring BBQ set to the villa. With very fresh meat and seafood to grilled at our Villa, this is the way you close the night with fully happy tummy and great conversation. More at BBQ in Villa at Montigo Resort...
Something that I love from Montigo Spa is whether the concept of the villa is modern minimalist but the Spa is still manifesting to the very tropical and traditional architectural with bamboo, dry leaf and nothing too much work to the Spa pools, I bet you can spend hours here.
I tried Montigo Massage, with very interesting composition on every essentials oil that used by Montigo Spa. More on Spa at Montigo Resort Nongsa...
THE BREAKFAST & POOL
Do not question me about Breakfast, it's buffet it's major buffet. Not only buffet but there is ready to eat stand such as Sayur Laksa, Lontong, Mie Goreng, Bakso etc mostly are traditional dishes. Breakfast by the pool, sea. fresh air and the birds. More on Breakfast at Montigo Resort...
BATAM CITY TOUR
I'm so happy that I had have opportunity to enjoy my ride through the best spot of Batam; Jembatan Barelang, Dragon fruits farm orchard, The great temple of Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya and Shopping mall (I suggest you to visit Batam Center Mall). More on Batam City Tour...
