…dari Jakarta! That’s what the people at C*****P******* Jakarta call me. 😛

Today is the first day I decided to have some me time. Started off with a cream bath where my hair is washed, and my back & shoulders are given a really good massage. I’ve fallen in love with creambaths since the first time I came here. I had pedicures done too, just pedicure because they are closing, and I didn’t have time for a manicure. Maybe tomorrow.

Then I had an aromatherapy massage in the comfort of my room, followed with dinner of seafood fettucini and buffalo wings. After this, I think I should soak myself in the tub with epsom salts brought from home. Bliss!

I made this trip sound like a much sought-after vacation! I haven’t started on waking up at 5am and heading to the client’s office at 7am you know…

Since the hotel I’m staying is around Pondok Indah, the nearest shopping mall is the Pondok Indah Mall. I love, love, love shopping malls in Jakarta because they are hardly crowded, and their customer service (not only at malls, but almost everywhere) is always superb. A simple greeting and a sincere smile is so much better than being greeted with a few pairs of eyes checking out what you are wearing, and whether you can afford paying, really!

And my attempt to hunt for a decent black leather bag failed, yet again! I kept being drawn to other colours, as always! and I am so in love with a grey and beige leather longchamp handbags I saw yesterday. But since it just won’t solve my problem of not having a proper black handbag to lug around… maybe I won’t. Maybe I would. Urgh. The usual problem when it comes to treating myself. 😛

Pardon me now, I need to go take my bath & retire for tonight. Can’t wait to be back! 🙂
