Love is all around...

Indonesia Tatler - - Contents -

f there’s one thing that makes us hu­man, it is the ca­pac­ity for love. In­deed, all ma­jor re­li­gions, faiths and creeds re­volve around ideas of love, com­pas­sion, and care for oth­ers. Af­ter all, when love con­quers all and when love is in your heart, it truly is the spark of the di­vine mak­ing it­self felt. As such, it would be derelict of us not to ded­i­cate this Valen­tine’s Day is­sue of In­done­sia Tatler to all the lovers out there. So we’ve rounded up five pairs of de­light­ful new­ly­weds who share with us the sto­ries of how they met, how they man­age their re­la­tion­ships, and what makes them tick as a cou­ple. Read and be in­spired!

Our cover story also re­volves around a well-known cou­ple, Agus Yud­hoy­ono and his wife An­nisa Po­han, as they pre­pare for the gu­ber­na­to­rial elec­tion. And rather than be­ing a dis­trac­tion, these two love­birds have found that cam­paign­ing to­gether has brought them even closer to­gether—as long as they al­ways make time for fam­ily, of course. Speak­ing of fam­ily, do take time to read the ar­ti­cle by Elaine Mar­lene about early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion—let’s hope these bright minds turn out to be lovely peo­ple too!

But this is­sue of In­done­sia Tatler isn’t just about ro­mance and com­pas­sion. We also dine at the fab­u­lous new Chi­nese restau­rant Eight Trea­sures, which will trans­port you to the Ori­ent with au­then­tic and tasty Tai­wanese “steam­boat” dishes. Re­mem­ber: you read it here first! And just to prove how eclec­tic we are (be­cause we know you, our read­ers, also have eclec­tic tastes!), we chat to Am­rit Har­jani, the master­mind be­hind the suc­cess of Jakarta’s most elite bar­ber, Marco’s Chop­shop. Va­ri­ety is the spice of life!

As ever, the is­sue also brims with so­ci­ety events, hap­pen­ings, beauty tips and tricks, well­ness ar­ti­cles and much more be­sides. So it re­mains for me to re­mind you that “all you need is love” and that to love and be loved should be your ul­ti­mate goal in life.

Happy read­ing!
