Christmas High Tea Set

Last week, i went to Peacock Lounge with Ricky (like always) and Vanny. 
When we were seated, I already knew it's gonna be happy afternoon tea time. Sleek yet elegant ambiance welcomed us.

We already planned to try their famous High Tea Sets (Two options set available around IDR 325k++ and IDR 388k++)
Luckily, in December they created limited edition set. It's called Christmas High Tea Set. 
This set costs IDR 488.000++ which consists of a 3 level cupboard filled with cake, another square plates of pastries and 2 glasses of sparkling wine. But, we decided to change the wine with tea. Quite stupid choice, though...

I eat a lot and most of it. The cupboard arrangement is quite impressive. I love the Christmas ornaments on the top of it.

Overall, i definitely will come back here to try their regular sets. For me, High Tea set in Peacock Lounge is totally worth the price. For anyone who love to spend their afternoon by talking with their loved one and eat a lot - literally a lot, this place is beyond perfect.

3 Things to do in Volendam

When in Amsterdam, my friend in Prague texted me and strongly suggest that i should visit Volendam. Honestly, this cute little town is totally caught my eyes.

For everyone who are interested with this little town. I will share 3 things to do in Volendam for urban people who need getaway! 

1st Taking A LOT of pictures
It's seems so lame, but trust me... for someone who lived in big city. Volendam architecture throw us back to our childhood moments or maybe the houses seems jump off from our bedtime book stories.

Don't forget to try Foto De Boer too. We should pay at least 20 euros to be dress up like Dutch. It's quite pricey but come on... This is rated as the best typical photo in whole Netherlands. Let's try and burn the cash!

2nd Eat LIKE A BOSS!
Another spending cash thing is try and buy various cheese in here. They were the best cheese I ever taste. 

Next, make sure you try the most fresh herring fish in Netherlands. I just can't stop eating it. If you don't like something raw or something like sashimi. You can buy fried seafood in various stands.

3rd Enjoy the Harbor
This harbor town makes me felt like Popeye. I'm ready to sail! I was living in big city and i found peace by looking at the ships. Oh, Volendam... I miss you!

So, are you gonna pack your bags and go to Volendam? Tell me!
