Review: Staycation at Best Western Premier The Hive, East Jakarta

Last month, I got the bad news about one of my friends getting terribly ill in Bogor. He was one of my ex-colleagues from the first airlines where I worked professionally. For that reason, my former colleagues and I arranged a surprise visit to his place on the 12th of this month.

The universe conspired as I got the invitation from Best Western Premier The Hive in East Jakarta to have a staycation the day before I got scheduled to go to Bogor. It was actually a perfect time, since I’m personally more familiar to get to Bogor from Jakarta instead of going there directly from Bandung.

So in this post, I’m gonna share with you the review of my staycation there. If some of you are currently planning to stop by Jakarta for a visit, you might as well want to take Best Western Premier The Hive for consideration to stay.

Well, I gotta say… Things around Brunei are much more affordable compared to Singapore. And did you know that the gas only costs around 3 cents BND per liter?!

I know, it’s not surprising as they’re a country that is rich with oil anyway. But believe me, I was surprised by the fact that I could control my expense quite easily in Brunei. If anything, I suppose Brunei has a currency that is on par with SGD, but the living cost is slightly on par like in Malaysia. And for me, it’s a sweet spot! 😉

What I’ve Learned About Sex From Being Once a Serial Dater

Back when I was younger and naive, I thought I’d be the kind of person who’d stay pure until my wedding day. Fast forward to today, let’s all laugh together. I’ve seen some shit, I know some things, and clearly, I don’t give a fuck what anyone thinks of me. Especially when it comes to the history of me being promiscuous.

But do I regret it? To be honest with you, nope… In fact, I’m glad that I’ve seen stuff to the point I have my lessons learned. And of course, sex is one of them.
