Day 4:

Our first day in Jakarta we went to the National Museum what a great way to see and learn about the history of Indonesia
and how Jakarta became the capital city and also was able to peruse some exquisite art!

While we were browsing the Museum we met a couple from Europe they informed us of some of best shopping stores and exotic dining experiences, they recommended a good Indonesia cuisine the Huize Trivelli Heritage Resto & Patisserie...!

Tonight we went to the Huize Trivelli Heritage Resto & Patisserie( just a few minutes from the National Museum) our food was very yummy (the cuisine itself is mixed between the Dutch Palate and the original Indische Food) since we were having this experience we all decided to try out the traditional beverage, called the Bier Pletok a la Betawi, a drink which is made from sweet-smelling pandan leaves, cinnamon and cloves, and spiced up with ginger…! The drink reminded us of Christmas.
