coffee break w/ bea.

Yuhu, hello!

Good friends of mine would know how lazy I can be when it comes to exploring or finding new places to hang around at. The only way to get me going is to really drag me out of bed and keep me off of it 'till the day ends.

Well, today marks the end of my second week in Jakarta, and Bea happened to be in town. We were in the Cipete area in the Southern part of the town, and somehow got lost. While searching for the shop that we wanted to visit, we stumbled upon a nice coffee place called Tuku. So we went in, bought iced coffee, exchanged a few coffee shop banters with Citra the barista, and sat around for awhile.

After that we continued our way to Älska, a concept store selling things that the owner has curated during her trips to places like Turkey, China, etc. The store consisted of a small café entrance, then tables and shelves filled with things, and a plant nursery on the back. It was quite amazing to see this kind of space that is filled with cultural thingamabobs, and on top of that, in Jakarta, and not exactly mass-produced --unlike other concept stores I've seen in the states.

So yeah, I had a nice afternoon, observing things.
