Friday night was a disaster trying to get to see the Ogoh Ogoh parade in Monas for Nyepi, missing it due to traffic and ending up in the car for 6 hours driving at slower than a snails pace from the city to home again in the rain. The traffic wasn’t moving, the car fuel gauge was blinking on empty, Samudra was crying, and it was a completely stressful way to end the week.
Waking up on Saturday morning there was still slight rain but I decided I still wanted to take Samudra to Bintaro for our pre-arranged playdate with some lovely mums. Once we arrived at Playparq Bintaro, the sun was beaming down and it was pretty crazy hot which was perfect as I knew Samudra would never get out of the wet play area once he discovered it. This Playparq is so huge in comparison to the one in Kemang with so much more to keep the kids stimulated and to get them to burn some energy. Upon entering there is a huge climbing area with multiple slides, some coin operated rides for babies, a small trampoline and this leads down to the water play section.
There’s also a big indoor cafe so you can escape the heat, and also an inside play area for kids, but as per usual, Samudra was more interested in playing with the brooms that the cleaners had left leaning up against the wall.
This was a fun catch up with a couple of mum’s and the kids loved splashing in the water all afternoon, with Samudra passing out in the car 5 minutes after we left.
Thanks for a fun day ladies and after Friday’s nightmare, I DO LOVE YOU AGAIN JAKARTA!
