Panties Pizza

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Dear reader and my blogger friends,

This time i want to share the new food at Kedirilagi, i wanna laugh at the name when i found out, where the name came from, i bought it home, from the look of its packing, that’s the name, but from the pizza itself just like the other pizzas like pizza hutt but in the cheap prize! actually the place has some branches, in Surabaya, Solo, Sidoarjo.

the place is cozy although only small space for me. hanging a mount of writing on the wall like motivation, about pizza, just kind of proper design. the design is quite nice, and like i said before the price is still in cheap mode for the pizza (you can find out the menu and the prizes below), it makes the place is always crowded from the visitors. the taste is good. like other cafes this place will give you taxes for 10% so you can use charger, wifi spot.

the service is good! i only wait in a short time to get my order.

overall i’m satisfied with the taste, service, and the place. it’s recommended!

Tongji – Nice Tea Cafe

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Dear reader and my blogger friends,

it’s been a long i didn’t write here over a week, because i have a lot of books to read.

anyway besides i like visiting nature spot, i like hanging out and trying a new place to eat. i love culinary actually! you must have known currently so a lot of a new eating spots with the nice buildings, architecture to interest the visitors.

I found out this place when i enjoyed the noon with my parents, from outside i liked the concept of the building, like Parisian cafe, so i tried the uniqueness, as always i spot the empty window-seat  at first to enjoy more view outside.

This is Tongji Cafe – absolutely the main course is tea with different taste and mix like bubble, strawberry, vanilla, choco, and and others. for the meals there are fried rice with kind of mixing like seafood, sausage. or you only wan to taste the desert like what i ordered at that time fried banana with powdered sugar. kind of small breads and so on.

for the price, it’s standard like most of cafe, not too much or less. around 10 – 40 thousand rupiah. the place is cozy, moreover my favorite seat, it’s window-seat! but the service i think it’s not too good in here, but i don’t know it’s just me or the others are feeling the same, it was only me to order, before more visitors to come. and i only ordered that fried banana and bubble tea, but it took a long time until i had to make a call in facetime with my friend to distract my mood. but that was my experience.

so far so good, if you wanna come here

The Hill

Dear reader and my blogger friends,

i was so excited when mentioning about hiking. besides, it was kind of exercise which was good for the body, it also something i got about the beauty of the nature. i like went to something like this! i could take pictures while increasing my photography skill.

I visited these hills, the place became one, called turtle and Ongakan hill, it was one of the new tourism place near my hometown. but i got the bad experience in here, because this was the new, the object to visit still less, a wooden house and usual playground. the road access to get here was hard with bumpy road and rocky, still a lot of the movers here and there preparing the new stuffs. so i suggest if you wanna visit this place in these days, probably don’t ! hold your desire earlier. but the views absolutely lovely!

a lot of farms planted different kind of vegetables and fruits. mainly the people around here depended on those farms, the weather still fresh and you would find out some kind of woods around like pines and teak.

Dear Reader and My Blogger friend,

Anyway happy weekend! right on yesterday i visited one of this reservoir, where was still near around my hometown, actually i didn’t intend to visit this one and my friend took me there, so why not.. this was my first time to go there after all.

The place was nice, i was in awe, i only sit before it daydreaming something while capturing the pictures, surprisingly i got a lot of awesome pictures there. this place was so far from the crowded town i bet you would get the peacefulness around here.

I got the lesson then that it’s not so hard to find out the peacefulness, just look for the quiet place with a good view included, away from the crowd and to enjoying the weekend doesn’t have to go far and expensive one, the nearby and cheap are enough, if you are lucky enough to find it out.

I love visiting tourism place with the nature as the main offering than i have to go to the mall and spend money there, absolutely more interesting!

Processed with VSCO with a3 preset

Dear Reader and My Blogger Friends,

This time i will talk about Indonesian food, because a lot of my friends in here traveler from different countries, different continents, so i decide to make this post, for helping little bit when you are all visiting my country 🙂

in this post, all of this foods are using peanut flavor as the main condiment. but different tastes, just so you know Indonesian Foods are identically with spicy and using rice as the main course 🙂

and these foods commonly have been in all around Indonesia,

  1. Sate

img_4859

I still remember when President Obama was asked about what foods he liked when he was visiting my country, this is one of it! in here sate are using chicken, goat, cow, or rabbit meats. it is made with grilled process on coal in the usual process then get lubricated all over it.

2. Siomay

img_5063

Mainly Siomay comes from west java, but now this kind of food has spread all around Indonesia. mostly it is contained with a little roll of cauliflower, potato, tofu, kind of pentols (i will post it in another time about this kind).

3. Pecel

img_4861

this food comes from my locality, but each places in Indonesia have it although the taste is not special like in my own place, it is contained with vegetable, rice, that peanut flavor, and kind of extra side dishes like peyek, tempe, tofu and another fried foods.

4. Gado – Gado

Processed with VSCO with c3 preset

for me this kind of healthy food! because it contains many of vegetables like salad, you can look at the picture above, it’s before the food mixed by its flavor.

5. Rujak

There are two kind of Rujaks, in vegetbale or fruit

Processed with VSCO with c3 preset

probably when you look at rujak in vegetables, it seems the contain is like gado – gado, but there’s some of it is different and its taste. the condiment of this rujak, peanut flavor is mixed with the special flavor from Indonesia, called “petis” so that the look is like the picture above.

Processed with VSCO with se3 preset

from all of the foods above, only this doesn’t use peanut flavor. but this uses lump sugar and it’s made jelled then mixed all over the fruits. so the taste is sweet with spicy.

but all of these foods can be offered with how many chilies do you want to as favorite spicy level of the taste on your tongue.

thankyou for reading, i hope you are able to enjoy this post and doesn’t get confused if you are on the trip in my country, i will post the other in another time.

Dear reader and blogger friends,

Meet Batik! right on this day we are Indonesian, celebrating Batik’s day! second of October on 2009 UNESCO gave this (Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity) for Batik.

we used to think that Batik only could be worn on a formal events or in Indonesian important days, and looked strange if we wore it in daily, moreover just to hang out. but now we can wear it whatever the events come up.

If you are my friends, it’s getting here, don’t forget to get it for souvenir 🙂

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Batik was only in these colors between black, brown and it looked monotone in its patterns.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Just Get Through This!

Dear Reader and Blogger Friends, I’m visiting my aunt, she has just taken surgery from a breast cancer, you know that’s one of disease that makes us (female) freaking out or afraid of our life would be short. Remembering I ever had it when i was still in the collage or probably I didn’t realise it when i was still in high school, i was still in luck because i got tumor in tame, I didn’t want to take a medication in modern, especially for surgery because for me that was just an instant and changing one of precious part for my body. Slowly but sure I was just searching the plants which have the benefits for reducing the cancer and looked for the other alternatives and didn’t forget to pray while remained making an effort, stay having spirit of life.

what i said it was true! and it happened to me a few years ago. So grateful a lot of efforts i have been through was paid off! i’am healthy then, so from the moment on i cared about what i wanted to consume, selective to pick out the ingredients of the food, living a life happily, did you remember, what i said to you in my post A Little Things Called Happiness For Me that being happy is easy, don’t look at the others’ happiness, just find it out for yourself ! when you have those the reasons to be happy, so why do you have to be sad? 🙂

it is same like whatever the diseases are, although it worst ever you still have the reason to recover. don’t be afraid of it, because it just a trial from God, you could past the test or not, everyone must have their own problem and we only could deal with it 🙂

i’am here only giving a motivation to you all who have the problem with the lack of spirit in living a life, don’t be a pessimistic, stay spirit!

i like photography! probably among of you my blogger friends have known it. when i was on the way and stopped at the moment i found out something i wanted to take the pictures, i only like it and wanted to place it on this post 🙂
