Modern Mexican Kitchen @ Keraton at The Plaza

Tacos
Choco Flan
Due to popular demand, the Modern Mexican Kitchen Express Menu is now extended to dinner. Bengawan at Keraton at The Plaza proudly presents the authentic 3-course Mexican Express Menu with a selection of appetizer, entrée & dessert for IDR150,000 net per person, available on Monday to Friday from 12pm to 3pm and 6pm to 10.30pm.

Chef Lamberto Valdez Lara, the culinary director of Keraton at The Plaza, is the mastermind behind the modern Mexican food experience at the hotel. He comments, “I am extremely excited to launch a modern interpretation of the finest and most popular dishes from my country, which I am confident that guests at Keraton at the Plaza and local residents here in Jakarta will share my passion when they come and experience the new menu.”

Using premium ingredients, Chef Lamberto creates a menu that is different yet familiar to the Indonesian palette. Popular menu items such as tacos, enchiladas, burritos and fajitas are paired with unique ingredients such as grilled nopal (grilled cactus), lengua (slow cooked beef tongue) and huitlacoche (corn fungus). Chef Lamberto also uses custom made cookery, such as the tortillera (tortilla press) to make his own tortilla from fresh masa (corn dough) and flour dough.

Churros
As a true believer of the farm-to-table approach, Chef Lamberto is determined to use local produce where possible, personally selecting the freshest and finest produce that Indonesia has to offer, including working with local farmers to harvest  the epazote, cactus and numerous types of chili.

Sotheby’s Hong Kong Presents Fine Jewels and Jadeite

Highlighting the Cartier Tiger Clip-Brooch
(Est. HK$1.2 – 1.6 million / US$150,000 – 200,000)

Exhibition: 21 - 26 November | Auction: 2:30pm, 27 November
Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery

Following last December’s success, Sotheby’s Hong Kong Fine Jewels and Jadeite sale this year will take place on 27 November 2014 at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Gallery, featuring an array of coloured and colourless diamonds, gemstones, and beautiful signed jewels highlighted by the iconic Cartier “Tiger” brooch. The sale will also include a charity session featuring 11 lots of whimsical jewels and watches to benefit Operation Smile China Medical Mission#, a charity that provides free surgery to underprivileged children and young adults with cleft lips or palates in China. Including the charity session, the entire sale will offer a total of 180 lots with a total estimate in excess of HK$58 million / US$7.5 million.

QUEK Chin Yeow, Deputy Chairman, Asia and Chairman, International Jewellery, Asia, says, “Following the success of the inaugural Fine Jewels and Jadeite sale last year, this November Sotheby’s is delighted to present another fun and exciting sale comprising a fine collection of coloured gemstones, diamonds and signature examples of signed jewels from the major jewellery houses. In honour of the charitable spirit of the festive season to come, Sotheby’s is once again pleased to feature a charity session to benefit Operation Smile China Medical Mission, which has changed over 26,000 smiles and lives by providing free surgery to underprivileged children with cleft lips or palate in China. By offering an excellent opportunity to acquire jewellery for the festive season we also invite our clients to join us in contributing to the transformation of these children’s lives and be their reason to smile.”

Highlights of the sale:
A Yellow Diamond, Diamond, Onyx and Emerald “Tiger” Clip-Brooch, Cartier
Est. HK$1.2 – 1.6 million/US$150,000 – 200,000

Inspired by the brand’s director of haute joaillerie Jeanne Toussaint, Cartier’s portrayal of the tiger is a timeless classic, highly sought after by style icons and jewellery collectors, in particular Barbara Hutton - Woolworth heiress, renowned jewellery collector and original owner of the Hutton-Mdivani Jadeite Necklace which sold for a record-setting US$27.44 million at Sotheby’s Hong Kong in April 2014. One of the jeweller’s most loyal patrons, Hutton favoured the tiger over the iconic panther, and in 1957 commissioned Cartier to create a three-dimensional “Tiger” clip brooch set in yellow diamonds, striped with onyx, and a pair of earrings to match, which has become a celebrated motif from Cartier’s exquisite “Great Cat Jewels”.

The craftsmanship of this “Tiger” clip brooch, a later version similar to the famous example commissioned by Barbara Hutton, is likewise close to perfection, with piercing emerald eyes and legs and tail articulated to move with the body resting in a composed curl.

Sotheby’s Beijing Presents Modern and Contemporary Chinese Art Auction

Liu Kuo-sung - Winter Landscape 1967
Sotheby’s Beijing announces a series of sales and events to take place from 27 to 30 November during the Autumn Sale season at the China World Summit Wing Beijing. 

The four-day series will include an auction of Modern and Contemporary Chinese Art and a preview of three selling exhibitions: Sotheby’s Diamonds; S. J. Phillips Ltd. – Fine Antique and Period Jewellery with Royal and Aristocratic Provenance; and Koopman Rare Art – Fine Antique Silver with Royal and Noble Provenance, providing a rare opportunity for collectors and connoisseurs alike to acquire high-end jewellery and top-quality Western silverware. 

Panel discussions and lectures will be held as part of the Educational Programme, featuring Sotheby’s international team of specialists, leading art scholars and commentarists to create an interactive platform for artistic exchange.

Kevin Ching, Chief Executive Officer of Sotheby’s Asia, said: “This Autumn in Beijing, Sotheby’s will continue our commitment to promoting cultural exchange between East and West. Modern and Contemporary Chinese Art remains the theme of the auction with a focus on Contemporary Ink paintings, which have achieved impressive results in recent years.

Zao Wou-Ki, 27.1.86, 1986
“Once again, we will offer Western collectibles through selling exhibitions – ranging from European royal antique jewellery to high-end contemporary diamond jewellery and more. By organising a public lecture by distinguished jewellery expert as well as exclusive appreciation workshop for our preferred clients, we hope to deepen Chinese collector’s understanding in jewellery collecting. We have also seen growing interest in European decorative art and Western silverware by Asian and Chinese collectors. Building on our success with the three instalments of the selling exhibition in Asia titled Age of Elegance: European Paintings, Furniture and Works of Art from the 19th Century, this season we are pleased to present in Beijing rare Western royal silver by Koopman Rare Art. With these offerings Sotheby’s is honoured to yet again rise to the occasion of our Chinese clients’ increasingly diversified collecting taste both within and beyond traditional categories of Asian art.”


Zhou Chunya, Peach Blossom, 2010
Wen Guihua, President of Sotheby’s Beijing Auction Co. Ltd., said: “The solid results achieved in our June auction are a testament to Chinese collectors’ trust in Sotheby’s reputation for excellence. This season we will build on the meticulous sourcing approach and offer 56 quality works of Modern and Contemporary Chinese art catering to the taste of our Chinese clients. Headlining the sale is Zao Wou-ki’s 27.01.86 (1986), a classic piece which displays the artist’s brushstroke, use of colour and spirit that are characteristic of his creativity and vision at that time, as well as Zeng Fanzhi’s Portrait (2003), a highly representative piece of his ‘post-mask’ period. We are also delighted to step up our offering of Contemporary Ink paintings in the upcoming sale. With its deep roots in Chinese art history, Contemporary Ink has received increasing market attention in recent years. Since introducing sales of Contemporary Ink art three seasons ago, we have achieved outstanding results and have now established a dedicated department focusing on the development of this category. The works to be offered demonstrate the evolution in aesthetics from traditional through modern perspectives. We look forward to welcoming collectors and art lovers at the series of events this Autumn.”

Leisure

A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you’re been taking. – Earl Wilson


Kala senggang apa yang Anda lakukan? Traveling? Pilihan yang sangat masuk akal. Hampir semua orang punya keinginan melanglang buana. Tentu tidak salah dong kalau saya masih menganggap traveling sebagai hobi, bahkan cita-cita abadi. Adiktif mungkin, tapi yang jelas saya menganggap jalan-jalan adalah the ultimate fun activity. Mengunjungi berbagai negara masih menjadi obsesi yang terpendam.

Siapa yang tidak ingin berkunjung ke perkebunan anggur di Tuscany, berjemur di pantai-pantai Mediterania, kalau kita sudah terbiasa kepanasan di pantai tropis – tidak ada salahnya memimpikan pemandangan gunung Alpen bersalju di Prancis Selatan. Ikut pesta di Rio de Janeiro. Atau, kalau Anda tergolong orang yang romantis, pilihannya mungkin berbulan madu ke Venesia. Wow!

Cita-cita seorang traveler sejati adalah keliling dunia suatu hari nanti. Selama mimpi masih gratis, kenapa nggak? Mimpi, keinginan, obsesi, harapan, dan sejenisnya, kata orang, adalah semacam mantra (dan juga doa) yang jika diulang-ulang tidak mustahil akan menjadi kenyataan.

MALE kali ini memberikan ide untuk Anda, aktivitas di luar kesibukan sehari-hari, yang terangkum dalam sisipan, yang kami sebut Leisure. Sisipan ini akan hadir dalam tiga nomer berturut-turut (edisi 108, 109, 110. Donwload http://male.detik.com).

Pada edisi perdana kami mengetengahkan destinasi serta segala hal yang berhubungan dengan pantai dan air. Tidak ayal lagi, pantai selalu menjadi tempat favorit liburan setiap orang. Debur ombak, angin semilir, dan sinar matahari selalu dikejar orang. Meski memang tidak setiap negara memilikinya, tak berarti orang tidak dapat mengejar pantai kala musim panas menjelang. 

Ada lima pantai favorit pilihan MALE yang menjadi tujuan sebagian besar pelancong pemburu matahari, yakni Ibiza, Palawan, Ayia Napa, Phuket, dan Bora Bora. Setiap pantai memiliki kelebihan yang membuat pelancong betah berlama-lama menikmati pesona panoramanya.



Ibiza
Meskipun sudah sering dijadikan tujuan ketika musim panas, Ibiza selalu memberi kesan berbeda dalam tiap kunjungan. Buktinya, banyak selebritas Hollywood, pemain sepak bola profesional, dan keturunan ningrat yang menjadikan pulau ini destinasi wisata mereka.

Pantai Ses Figueretes dan Playa d’en Bossa merupakan pantai pasir putih yang menarik dikunjungi dan menggoda pengunjung untuk berjemur. Belum lagi Ibiza Town dan San Antonio, dua kota yang menawarkan pesta tergila dengan pengalaman yang mungkin belum pernah Anda rasakan sebelumnya. Jadi, jika ingin menghabiskan waktu untuk menikmati pemandangan pantai yang indah dan pesta yang meriah, Ibiza menjadi jawaban yang sangat tepat untuk tujuan wisata berikutnya.


Ayia Napa
Salah satu daerah di wilayah Siprus ini wajib disambangi. Bagaimana tidak, wilayah ini dipenuhi pantai yang memiliki penghargaan Blue Flag. Jika Anda berencana menghabiskan waktu untuk memanjakan mata dengan air biru kristal, Ayia Napa merupakan jawaban yang tepat.

Nissi adalah pantai yang sangat populer bagi kaum muda. Pada musim panas, pantai yang satu ini sangat padat dengan pengunjung. Apalagi wilayah ini dikenal dengan keriaannya, terutama dengan foam party-nya. Selain itu, masih ada Pantahou, yang merupakan pantai terpanjang di Siprus. Pantai ini lebih cocok bagi yang sedang bepergian bersama keluarga.

Adapun pantai Landa tidak terlalu ramai pengunjung, tapi memiliki view yang kurang-lebih sama dengan pantai lainnya. Keindahan pantai di Ayia Napa tidak lepas dari ketatnya pengawasan Organisasi Pariwisata Siprus dalam menjaga kebersihan dan keasriannya.


Palawan
Siapa sangka negara tetangga ini memiliki daerah wisata yang menarik? Puerto Princesa merupakan salah satu langganan peraih penghargaan kota tebersih. Kota ini semakin menarik dengan adanya sungai bawah tanah. Bahkan, saking indahnya, sungai ini masuk daftar tujuh keajaiban dunia pada November 2011.
Jika berbicara tentang pantai, tenang saja, Teluk Coron akan menyediakannya. Pemandangan yang disajikan di teluk ini akan membuat Anda menghela napas panjang, bahkan berdecak kagum karena keindahannya. Air laut sebening kristal terhampar di depan mata, yang dikombinasikan dengan indahnya pantai pasir putih di tepinya.

Well, tidak mengherankan jika wilayah ini dikatakan sebagai potongan surga di dunia. Dengan semua sisi yang layak dikunjungi, terlebih dengan breathtaking view di semua sudut, Palawan bisa menjadi alasan yang tepat berkunjung ke Filipina.


Phuket
Pernah menonton The Beach, yang dibintangi oleh Leonardo DiCaprio? Pengambilan gambar film itu dilakukan di pulau di sekitar Phuket. Wilayah di Thailand tersebut terkenal populer di dunia karena keindahan pantai-pantainya. Di bagian pesisir baratnya, pantai berpasir putih, yang berpadu dengan air laut berwarna biru kristal, terhampar luas.

Berbagai kegiatan yang berhubungan dengan air sangat menyenangkan dilakukan di sana, mulai sekadar berenang, snorkeling, diving, berlayar dengan yacht, bermain jet ski, hingga parasailing. Ko Hae, Ko Racha Yai, Ko Khai, dan Ko Phi Phi merupakan wilayah favorit yang kerap dikunjungi.

Selain itu, Phuket menjadi salah satu destinasi favorit bagi yang ingin melangsungkan pernikahan. Dengan view yang mengagumkan, tentunya wilayah ini akan menjadi tempat yang tepat untuk digelarnya upacara pernikahan. Yang juga menarik, Phuket bisa dicapai dengan bujet terjangkau. Apalagi bila masa promo tiket dari beberapa airline sedang berlaku.


Bora Bora
Jika berencana menghabiskan musim panas dengan pasangan atau keluarga, Bora Bora merupakan tempat yang pantas dikunjungi. Pulau ini penuh dengan romantisisme, yang dibalut dengan pemandangan indah. Penginapan di atas laut dengan pemandangan air laut yang bersih dan bening sangat memikat. Pengalaman melihat air berwarna biru kristal di laut yang dangkal dengan arus yang tenang merupakan sesuatu yang menyenangkan dinikmati.

Pantai Matira di bagian selatan termasuk cukup populer. Kendati tidak seluas pantai pada umumnya, pemandangan yang ditawarkan di atas rata-rata. Hanya Bora Bora terkenal karena kemahalannya. Semua yang ada di sana memiliki standar mahal hingga mahal sekali.
