Hotel Review: Turtle Beach Hotel, Ujung Genteng

29 01 2017


This is the hotel where we stayed at the Turtle Beach (Ujung Genteng). The name is Turtle Beach Hotel. The place is nice & clean. The unit has 2 identical bedrooms with a big living room & balcony. There’s no water heater in the bathroom (well, who needs a hot bath in a hot beach, right?). You are not allowed to cook in the hotel, but they provide you a gallon of water on a hot water dispenser & a fridge in your living room for your refreshment needs.

There are 3 rounded-swimming pools, and those are clean, don’t worry! The beach is totally safe for children, because it’s a coral beach. 

The only objection I have for this place is only the food, especially their free-breakfast-buffet menu. But hey, there are lots of small restaurants & warungs (street vendors) by the beach nearby with bargain price that can meet your needs! Make sure you try the famous fresh grilled fish on your trip in Ujung Genteng. Have fun!

Pregnancy 101
The Normal Pulse Rate During Pregnancy
By Lisa Weber Aug 16, 2013

Pregnancy brings about many changes in a woman’s body. Included in those changes may be your pulse rate, which increases during pregnancy. According to Baby Fit, a resting pulse rate is different for every woman, and is based on your level of fitness before pregnancy and your age. Your doctor will monitor your pulse rate throughout your pregnancy, and may make recommendations in your care accordingly.

What to Expect
Your normal resting heart rate will be higher during pregnancy. According to KidsHealth, a pregnant woman’s heart rate increases during pregnancy to pump more blood. As more of her blood supply goes to the uterus, her heart works harder to send enough blood to the rest of the body.

Normal Rate
A pregnant woman’s normal pulse rate depends on several factors, according to Baby Fit. These include her age, fitness level, and health before getting pregnant. However, a typical resting heart rate for an adult woman is 75 beats per minute; when pregnant, that same woman can expect her resting rate to be approximately 80 beats per minute. (Ahh.. so my 78bpm RHR is considered normal, thank God – E)

Exercise
It used to be that pregnant women were advised not to allow their heart rate to go above 140 beats per min during pregnancy. However, in 1994, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology changed its recommendation because there was no evidence that a heart rate greater than 140 beats per min was harmful for the mother or baby. Instead, pregnant women should use their perceived rate of exertion to measure intensity, and aim to exercise at a level that allows them to carry on a conversation while exercising. (Ha! guess I’m ready for a Z2-Z3 course! – E)

Howdy, expecting mommies!
Start your day with this breakfast set:
• 1 spoonful of Extra Virgin Olive Oil -> best omega 3 & omega 6 source for the baby’s brain development

• honeylemon shot -> preggy mommies are more vulnerable, so we need extra protection from the diseases

• overnight oats topped with your favorite seasonal fruits -> no words for this one! 😋😋😋 (check out my previous posts for the recipe of this healthy delicious meal)

• okra infused water -> contains high folic acid, best for the baby development and increases breastmilk production 
Happy tummy, happy mommy, happy baby! 👶

—————————————

Alkisah setelah berkenalan di path seorang teman,  Didi dan Kiki kemudian berniat melanjutkan perkenalan mereka di suatu tempat di bilangan Jakarta Pusat agar bisa lebih saling mengenal satu sama lainnya. Istilahnya sih kopdar alias kopi darat. Didi yang bekerja sebagai manajer pemasaran di salah satu perusahaan telco terkemuka inipun berinisiatif mengajak Kiki untuk bertemu di sebuah Deli yang lagi ngehits di Grand Indonesia. Kiki pun tak menampik usulan tersebut. Akhirnya merekapun sepakat untuk bertemu pada hari Jumat sore, seusai waktu kerja.

Hari yang ditunggu-tunggu pun tiba. Didi sangat senang akhirnya bisa bertemu dengan Kiki yang cantik jelita, dan Kiki juga tak kalah kagum melihat penampilan Didi yang ganteng dan necis bak eksekutif muda masa kini. 

Tak terasa, hari semakin malam, dan tibalah waktu untuk berpisah. 

“Thanks for the dinner ya mas,” kata Kiki. “Aku pulang dulu”, sambungnya.

“Oh, kamu rumahnya di mana?” tanya Didi.

“Menteng”, sahut Kiki enteng.

“Oh, biarlah kuantar, kasihan sudah malam”, kata Didi. “Lumayan lah, deket rumahnya, plus berarti dia tajiirr! Yeaayy!” pikir Didi dalam hatinya.

Kemudian merekapun keluar dari mall itu bersama-sama. Ketika akan berbelok ke Menteng, Kiki berkata, “lewat sudirman aja Di, jangan belok situ..” Didi pun menurut, walau dalam hatinya dia heran, kenapa harus memutar jauh. Setiap kali Didi hendak berbelok ke arah Menteng, Kiki selalu mencegahnya, dan menyuruhnya tetap di jalan raya Sudirman, hingga mereka masuk jalan tol dalam kota. Didi pun semakin deg-degan.

Hingga akhirnya setelah dia tidak tahan lagi, dia pun bertanya, “Tadi rumah kamu katanya di Menteng? Kok lewat sini?”

Kiki pun menjawab, “iya mas, Ujung Menteng, BEKASI!”

Didi langsung pucat pasi!

Lalu ia berkata lagi, “oalah dik, kukira Menteng Jakarta! Eh by the way, aku lupa nama panjangmu tadi dik Kiki..”

Kiki menjawab, “Mukiyem, mas.. Kalo mas Didi?”

Didi menjawab singkat, “MUKIDI!”
