"This is a must visit if you are in Jakarta. It is amazingly beautiful and I wish we had more time to take in the ambience and to try the food. A visit to the toilets is a must - pretty nice. Staff were lovely and drinks were not all that cheap but it was well worth experiencing this beautiful oasis."
I was getting fed up with the hassle of setting up bloated WordPress themes. Luckily I've now found Pivot with Variant. Building pages in real-time without a CMS gives me all the power and flexibility I could want.
The plethora of content blocks available in Pivot has made it my go-to template of choice. I've already used it for a number of clients - all of which have been thrilled with the outcome. Well done Medium Rare!
