AS I was in Jakarta, I miss my friends there, and some of them arrange to meet at this new neighbourhood bar Hops & Malts as I Google it and some Indonesia bloggers do blog about this place as I quite worried that not many searchers will appear. Apparently this bar is also quite well known for their food as I did not try it out. Was here for a drink and chill with my friends here.

Located in the new development around the area in Ruko Garden House, North Jakarta, smack with alot of F&B units and this is one of my friends, Ryard favorite hang out place. I also do observe that there are many young Indonesians hang out around here also.

Love the ambiance of the bar which is simple with red brick wall design by playing R&B and house as background music at that time.

So try out their local beer Anker – A deep golden pilsner with creamy foaming head, strong flavor, delicious well balanced bitter taste and full body, something like Tiger crossover with Carlsberg. In my own opinion. Kekeke .. (forgot to tale the bottle)

They have another funny name for the beer is called Kuda Putih (White Horse) and my friend do not like it so did not order.

This is one hell of a great fries with bacon and bbq sauce top with some cheeze dressing on top and goes perfectly well with our beers.

I reach in Sunway kinda early while waiting for the rest and after meet up with the rest and saw the pricing of the ticket, my eyes widen with my jaw nearly dropping off by seeing the value of the ticket~

It’s a VVIP ticket worth RM1500. Wooohooo, this would be the very first time attending a concert under this category. With no idea of how it feels and look like, just cant wait to go down to the arena, Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach.

At that moment, the crowd area was pretty dead, sardine pack but the atmosphere is not there yet until this 2 Emmcee for the night from Fly.fm came out, to stir up a bit.

After the local performance, and the stage was darken abit and the crowd start to go crazy and the DJ on the stage teasing with some music abit and with the emcee bringing the crowd together, chanting the name of Ne-Yo… Ne-yooo.. Then all the band members filling up the stage and suddenly saw a dark shadow to the mic area and the crowd went crazy with his very first song of the night… ‘Because of You’ that is quite well known to most of us. The girls around my area started to get craze, standing up swaying, singing and dancing…

Even that they stop some people from sneaking camera in, but can you imagine how many camera’s are there?

Ne-Yo (25)
Sea of crowd and sardine pack with estimated 20,000 people electrify the area.

Ne-Yo (26)
Few songs after that, comes with the special appearance of Jadyn Maria, which I do not really know who she is, but her songs is not bad. After a few songs of solo singing then…

Ne-Yo (31)
Crowd singing, dancing all night long is what I am expecting for the night. Even some of the girls from the other VIP area pull their chairs to the middle area to sit and dance.

Ne-Yo (33)
Besides that, some talking and piece of advice of relationship to all the crowd which I make him to the love guru side. A great flow of the night of how he link it and sing with his songs.

The night did not just end like that as he paid tribute to Micheal Jackson by dancing his hit song, ‘Beat It’ and the crowd went crazy. He just bring the crowd to ecstasy just like that~

Ne-Yo (34)
He certainly said that, this would not be his first and last concert in Malaysia, he certainly is coming back for more. Thank you to all of you.
