Christmas at Mandarin

The Mandarin Oriental Jakarta will always has a special place in my heart. For this Christmas, I got a chance to be invited on an intimate Christmas high tea. Finally, I get to meet Mia – which is one of the names of this blog – read more about it HERE again : ) Edited 7It was a total glam, and very dazzling Christmas place at the Mandarin. Upon your entry to the lobby, you can see a fuschia –themed Christmas tree (it was designed by the hotel’s General Manager himself, Mark Bradford). By the way, do take a picture with this tree as you can get a chance to win a two nights stay at the Mandarin Oriental Jakarta’s Presidential SUITE!

On this opportunity, Mia introduced us to the Christmas product from the hotel – and yes, that includes the special CRONUTS they made for Christmas! Wohoo. Mandarin Oriental JakartaWe started out with this 2 beautiful log cake. Log cake has been known as the Christmas’ must have cake to cast away bad energy. Mandarin Oriental JakartaThe first log cake was based with raspberry and the other one is based with chocolate. I personally find the raspberry log cake more delicious – perhaps I’m heavily stuffed with the chocolate feel (where you can find chunks of nuts within).Mandarin Oriental JakartaAfter the log cake, I finally get to see the special Christmas Cronuts. Everyone has been talking about cronuts since it’s first appearance in Jakarta by this hotel. However, I never had the chance to taste them until today. Mandarin Oriental JakartaThe Christmas cronuts edition is priced at IDR 50,000- where an early phone call must be made prior your pick up. Mia said, the hotel wants to maintain a fresh cronut feel for every guests. I love the texture of this cronuts – it’s crispy, not too big, nor too small, making it a perfect bite for everyone. Mandarin Oriental JakartaI want to thank you also to Mia, and the whole Mandarin Oriental Jakarta team for giving me 6 box of Crounts (IT’S A CHRISTMAS BLESSING!!!) I love you guys 😀 Well, be sure not to miss the many surprises you can find at this hotel. Don’t miss out on the next post as I’ll be revealing what you can find during this month at another best hotels in the city. Cheerios.
