I know I should wait for a few days for another post. But this simply can’t wait : ) – I’m very blessed to be invited to another Christmas event at Shangrila Jakarta. A personal thanks to Joris, for having me, and Ellyna for introducing us both : ) All 3 of us gathered at the Lobby Lounge of Shangri-La.Now, this lobby lounge always has a special place in my heart. For years I’ve been coming here to just relax and take a break from the city. From its grand décor, and high ceiling, everything just feels right here. And here we are at 15:00 on a cloudy Friday, we take a high tea buffet. For IRD 250,000 you can enjoy a scrumptious high tea buffet where you can also get tea/coffee with 2 times serving. What I love about the high tea buffet here is that it’s in a form of buffet – where you can snatch everything. However, the hotel plans to change the form of the high tea into a plating system. So be sure to enjoy it, while you can. I have a smoked salmon on my first plate, which is beautifully made. With thin marinated sauce, this salmon generates something very addictive! The salmon and sushi are also very fresh. Some assorted nuts, dried fruits, and cheese are also present. So if you’re a cheese lover, be sure not to miss out. You can also find a roast beef sandwich with mustard & Cornichons on Cumin Paguette, and many other finger sandwiches. As this is a Christmas theme high tea, the cakes and dessert sections have been tailored to in suit with this holiday season. In my favorite word of the month, all of these are magical. And last but not least, a big thank you for Shangri-La for giving me a huge Christmas hamper! I love it – be sure to get it on a special Santa house on the lobby! I think this will be my last post this year. For a marvelous 2013, I thank God, and you all for the continuous support towards Lyon+Mia. I’ll see you all in 2014! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
