Selain Mie Pangsit, kuliner wajib aku di Jambi itu adalah kwetiau. Kwetiau di Jambi itu beda loh dengan kwetiau Medan atau kwetiau Jakarta. Karena kwetiau di Jambi terbuat dari tepung beras, dan bentuknya pun lebih tebal.
Belum banyak tempat makan kwetiau yang aku coba. Tapi diantara tempat-tempat itu (halal maupun non halal), yang paling aku suka itu so far Kwetiau Hance (non halal), atau biasa ada yang nyebut kwetiau Ace atau kwetiau Atek. I found that the non-halal version has this thicker and more intense flavor. The power of lard 😉 Lanjutkan membaca “Kuliner Jambi : Kwetiau Hance”
Do you believe in love at the first bite? I think you should, as it does exist.
We went here last December, just a couple of days before we left Chiang Mai. And we clearly understand what the fuss is all about.
Before we got to Chiang Mai, I did a little research about where to have nice desserts there (because, I just had to!). This place came up a couple of times and I read a lot of good reviews about it on TripAdvisor, Foursquare, Facebook, and even on some random site.
Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of taking a short trip to Singapore. I spent the first day alone and slept at a hostel with the other 3 guys sharing the same room. Trust me, my mom freaked out, like so much, when I told her about my roommate. I walked around the city, went to a Cat Cafe, ate a lot of local foods, meeting good old friend. It was more than I could ask for.
You know, most Indonesian come back to Singapore for shopping. Well, it’s a bit different with me, I come back to eat. I found that Singapore offers a great amount of varied foods I can hardly find in Indonesia. And I can’t explain what kind of food it is. It can be Chinese, Malay, Indian, Indonesian, Taiwan, or sometimes the food is even influenced by other culture and ingredients. So here you go…
Last month, I was fortunate enough to be invited by Ara Hotel Gading Serpong for a 2D1N stay together with the other bloggers (Yenny, Soya, Aline, and Icha). The event itself was called “Blogger Familiarization Trip at AraHotel Gading Serpong”.
It was my first time going to Gading Serpong and the pleasant stay made my first time in Gading Serpong memorable. It was a very nice escape from the busy over-populated Jakarta!
It’s been ages since the last time I post something on the blog! Gosh, I’ve been busy (and lazy) lately. I found it SO HARD to put everything (effort, mood, etc etc etc) into one place and I just kept procrastinating on pretty much every thing. I HAD THE WORST WEEK, ever. And you know, the traffic in Jakarta really pisses me off, especially on Monday morning AND Friday evening. It’s just crazy. I don’t understand why people could live with this. Perhaps it’s time for me to go back to Bandung, eh? Or Jambi. Anywhere but here. There’s got to be another way.
ANYWAY, enough with the grumbling. So, for the sake of relieving my stressful mind, I went to Marche at Plaza Senayan for lunch during office hour.
So, I went to Lotte Shopping Avenue last night after work. The static work at the office suddenly stressed me out so I thought I need some good food and maybe, a nice movie after dinner. We ended up having Bankara Ramen for dinner. Honestly, I never heard about this place before. I don’t know if it’s just me, but, I didn’t notice anyone mentioning it in social media. So I was a bit hesitate : should we eat here, or just go straight to Sushi Tei? It’s the safest choice, that night. We ended up picking Bankara Ramen.
You know, I’ve recently noticed that this kind of shot, the oh-my-table-is-so-white-it-looks-so-elegant-i-must-be-a-neat-person shot is kinda popular among Instagramers (or is it just among the people I follow?). There are even several popular tags for that. Let’s say, #whiteaddict. Or, #whitegram, #whyteworks, #whywhiteworks, and many many more. Ring the bell? I bet it does.
I know some people who find it boring, but I personally like this kind of shot. It gives this neat looking picture, with a clean effect without overdo it. So lately, I’ve been doing quite a few white shot and I must admit : IT IS NOT EASY (at the first time)! There are so much trouble like the lighting, your own shadows, your phone shadows, your camera shadows, and even the shadows from the object you’re trying to capture itself sometimes annoys me.
Now I want to share with you how I do my #whiteaddict shot and how I edit it. I use mainly Snapseed for editing my whitegram. I found it soooo easy to use and the most important thing is, it works like wonder! And I’m hoping I could get many many other tips from you! Please don’t be hesitate to hit the comment down below and share what you know about this stuff! 😉
So this was actually my cousin’s birthday lunch. She decided to celebrate her veery special day at Pizza e Birra, Central Park Jakarta. She was actually thinking about another options like Kitchenette but then we ended up having our lunch here. It was a nice pick, really. Good job, cuz!
I’ve been to Pizza e Birra in Bandung before, but didn’t manage to take a good picture. So here we go!
