A big group of mummies this morning met up for our weekly coffee. Carrying babies on our chest and tired from a sleepless night before. We were all desperate for breakfast and coffee! We all eagerly went to one of my local hang outs, Trafique coffee, this morning and was horrified to find out that we couldn’t be served because the register girl (taking orders) was running late for work!

As part of my weekly coffee meet up, Jk Mums and Bubs Coffee, I discovered a hidden gem in Kemang. ‘Mandiras Garden’ is a tiny cafe with its own vegetable garden. I can’t tell you how excited I was to visit this cafe! I love finding green spaces in this city! Continue reading
Miss Two Point Five, has been feeling unwell the last few days, so I decided to keep her out of school and observe her.

It’s a fairly new establishment that, much to my excitement, opened up in Gandaria last year, an area close to me. Gandaria, and surrounding areas, do not have many great, stand alone cafes that are not a part of a shopping center (I don’t like waiting until 10am for a coffee!) so I was probably one of their first customers when it opened.

I just created a Facebook group and posted it on the FB page ”Jakarta Moms Support Group.”
It’s one of the best things I’ve done since moving to Jakarta! I’ve made so many new friends from all different parts of the world, and have discovered so many great coffee venues!
