Two Days Trip in Jakarta – Dinner at Suntiang in Grand Indonesia (Day 1)

Exploration of our room took quite a while before finally settling down on the sofa for a short rest. One of our objectives for this trip was to enjoy one good massage and we started flipping through the directory in the hotel room.

Two Days Trip in Jakarta – Checking in Kempinski Hotel (Day 1)

My client has invited me over for his daughter’s wedding dinner on a Sunday evening and I thought this could be a good opportunity to take a break away from work for a day or two and enjoy the weekend with my girl friend.
