How's your Christmas guys? I bet each of you had your own personal Christmas celebration. As for me, I spent my Christmas with my family and I am so happy with that.

Truthfully and sadly, I have been living in Jakarta for almost 15 years and I never properly visited this historical place called Taman Fatahillah. I have visited the immigration office which is located near Taman Fatahillah back then, but I didn't even take a walk at this place due to my busy schedule. Even worse, I have been passing through this place everyday on my way to office!

Finally that day has come, it's my first time ever having a proper trip to Kota Tua, especially Taman Fatahillah. (yay!) The place was super crowded at that time and I could notice several tourists walking here and there. If only the place was cleaner, I'm sure this place will be loaded with tourists even more.

Once in a year, Jakarta will always experience the effects of Eid al-Fitr Holiday. (if you know what I mean) Sometimes, I think it is nice to spend holiday in Jakarta during Eid al-Fitr Holiday, because Jakarta is really quiet and free from traffic jam during this time. However (and sadly), those effects are not applicable to shopping malls, most shopping malls in Jakarta will be crowded and packed with people who search for food during this time. Because most traditional markets are closed during this time and most housemaids are going back to their hometown, so you could expect to see many people who decided to eat out at shopping malls during this time.

So, me and my family decided to eat out on that day, but most restaurants were fully packed with people and we decided to have snacks as our dinner at Hot Star, which coincidentally was not really crowded that day.

(What's to eat when you don't feel like eating?)

That's what I am thinking about that day, I don't know why, but I really don't feel like eating that day, I guess it's caused by the odd weather in Jakarta lately, it can be raining all day long today and it can be super humid on the next day. So, I found a restaurant called Jill in Marketbar and I looked at a segment called "A Little Bit Hungry" on their menu which consisted of various unique side dishes such as truffle fries and stuffed crispy potato skin which I will discuss later.

Pantai Indah Kapuk can be considered as one of the popular dining spots in North Jakarta, there are huge numbers of restaurant there, and I have to say the restaurant turnover is quite high here, because I often see new restaurants opening their outlet here while other restaurants closing theirs. If the restaurant doesn't have any competitive advantage(s), it might be hard to survive. (yes, businesses nowadays are like that, right?)
