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.

Review: Eyebrow Threading & Brazilian Waxing at Waxhaus 23 Paskal Bandung

Do you shave or wax?

Well, I used to shave everything from my eyebrows to my pubic hair. That, until I decided to start waxing around 3 years ago in Jakarta. Ever since, knowing that it totally stings to wax after having your hair previously shaved, I never really look back to the shaving option ever again.

That, until after Asian Games 2018 finished last year when I moved back to Bandung for good. Despite the fact I’m originally from Bandung, I had never waxed anywhere in the city. But since the chance would be rare for me to occasionally go to Jakarta, I decided to find a new wax parlor where I could have my eyebrows and hair down there done.

During my time in Jakarta, I usually went to N’s Sugar Waxing since it’s located close to my place in South Jakarta. After googling some information about waxing place in Bandung, I found out about Waxhaus.

I went to Waxhaus for eyebrow threading and Brazilian waxing earlier this year before going to Singapore. And recently, I came back for the same procedure.

First Time Staying at an Airbnb in Brunei: EZ Lodgings, Bandar Seri Begawan

So, in case you haven’t read my previous post on my last Borneo trip, my main destination for the trip is actually Brunei Darussalam. Not only that I wanted to go to Brunei as I have to tick off this country from my bucket list, but also because I’ve got an old friend there to visit. 😉

My first time in Brunei became the first thing for me to do something else: staying at an Airbnb.

I know, some of you might wonder where I have been all the time that I never used the platform before as I’ve traveled. However, despite creating my account in the platform a long time ago, my first experience staying at Airbnb was on the trip to Brunei.

In Brunei, I stayed at EZ Lodgings, located around 15 minutes drive from the city center in Bandar Seri Begawan. For this, I got recommended by Suzie ever since we started talking about my plan to visit her in Brunei.
