Rest and Relax at Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim

Partnership Post 

We humans have lost the wisdom of genuinely resting and relaxing. We worry too much. We don’t allow our bodies to heal, and we don’t allow our minds and hearts to heal.   

Thich Nhat Hanh

I have to agree to the above saying that sometimes we just forget how to relax. We tend to do things fast, want it all, and tend to burden ourselves with some unimportant things that makes us forget to rest. Little that we know that with a proper rest, it can refreshes your mind and soul, and you might have done things better right after having a great laugh with your friends and a sound sleep. Who’s agree with me?

It just came right in time where i needed rest the most, and these great friends of mine asked me out for a staycation at Aloft Jakarta. A hotel with a nice space, with a sassy and savvy ambiance all in one. Located at the heart of Central Jakarta, makes this place accessible and easy to gather all of my busy friends from all over Jakarta.

The Unique Lobby

Aloft Jakarta entrance might look small from outside, but trust me it has a nice spacious place inside. They have an open space lobby that has industrial feeling and exposed ceiling. Loving their lobby to the bits, with no walls and has no limit feelings that allow guest to interact and explore. And not only that, Aloft Jakarta also provide their guests a billiard table, and other fun games too for us to chill in the hotel itself. Such a great space for me to play with my friends while waiting for the check-in time! And oh.. i actually love their front office people who is super friendly and helpful enough to me to retrieve my SPG account, as i lost my member numbers and all.. haha..




The WXYZ Bar 

Other than the unique design of the Lobby, Aloft Jakarta also has a day and night bar that is very enticing for us to hang out and sip a little mocktail to start the night. This fancy bar has indoor and outdoor space too for you to mingle around, and sometimes WXYZ also offers a life acoustic performance by emerging artist too. A corner where you can enjoy your favourite drinks and dance the night away!

Ohh, before i forgot, Aloft Jakarta is having..

The Aloft Room

I am very sure, a hotel room is the most important thing to consider when you’re booking a hotel for leisure or business. More over if you just landed from overseas and having a jetlag, a spacious room with a nice city view will help you to rest and relax. If you’re going to travel with your friend or colleague, you can put your mind at ease as well, cause they have a huge Twin Bed for you both to sleep in.

Other than a comfortable bed and lovely view, they have a nice thoughtful decorations of a hand-drawn local puppet, such as ondel-ondel. A good way for the tourist to learn a bit of Indonesia.

NOOK

You can try to request for breakfast in bed like me and my friends did, or you can go down to NOOK restaurant and enjoy the breakfast buffet for more fulfilling meal. and if you’re planning to enjoy your whole day in the hotel, NOOK also provides a lunch buffet for you to enjoy as well.

and they have quite a nice outdoor place, isn’t it? You can have your breakfast outside as well and get some morning fresh air.

Well, last but not least, i am just so happy to spent my staycation here. Great companion, friendly hotel crew, hearty food, and many instagramable spots. haha. At least i can re-charge my body and soul, and ready to seize the weekend! *since i normally work during weekend. HAHA.

Anyway, thank you once again Aloft Jakarta! ❤

TravelTalk : Good Shoes Take You to Good Places

~ Good Shoes Take You to Good Places ~

Well, i kinda agree with the above quotes. Since without good shoes, you cant hike mountains to see breathtaking sunrise, cant walk that far to explore the fancy city’s alleys, and cant take the long stairs to see the beautiful cityscape.

Talking about shoes, i have an interesting fact about myself. When most girls need more space to store their new pair of shoes, I am a girl who always find it difficult to have a nice pair of shoes. *Yeap, you read it right! Haha

Believe it or not, for now, i only have 1 pair of flip flop, 1 pair of  sneakers, 1 pair of long boots, 1 furry winter boots, 1 pair of  running shoes, 3 pairs of flat shoes, 2 pairs of kitten heels, 1 pair of wedges, and 3 pairs of heels (which i only use 1 pair frequently. Haha #truestory #dontjudgeme

Well, i dont know if it’s already a lot. But for me, it is not many at all, since all shoes are meant for specific event, and i frequently use 1 pair of my favorite flat shoes practically everywhere for my daily basis. Haha..

*trying to find other travelling pictures with my only shoes on it, but can only find these three.. Haha*

Anyway, I am size 5,5 (US) – which is 35-36 in asia. Who got the same size as me?? Haha

This size is considered small even though im an Asian who lives in Asia. When i shop around in some shoe shops in Jakarta or Singapore, i always find that they dont really stock up a lot for my size. When there’s any, sometimes size 35 is too tight on me and size 36 is kinda loose. Haha. So,  i need to buy additional sole since it’s a little bit loose or have to let it goo since it’s too small! *Haishhh*

And  i really hate it when Often times, i find it comfortable when i  tried it in the shop, but it hurts real bad when i try to walk for hours. ~.~”

So normally, i would just come back to the same brand and probably same design with slightly different colour for my shoe needs. Awh Goshh, does this only happen to me? Lucky you if your feet can just fit to any brand!

I dont know if it’s too much to customised your own shoes, since most of the time, customisation is only for those who’s having leg problem or getting married.

But, i found this website FSJshoes that can custom your own shoes. From lovely wedding shoes to your fashionable walking boots! This made me curious, since they can do partial and full customisation, and they do ship worldwide as well.

What do you think, girls? What’s your favorite comfortable shoes? Will you go to custom your shoes too?
