Durian Cafè

leave a comment »

imageBorn and live in tropical paradise of Indonesia, I came to know lots of wonderful things that half of the world could never imagine seeing them. Of course I am referring to Durian. You might already knew it. It’s a tropical fruit found in SouthEast region of Asia. The famous hard-skin covered with spikes is the idea of Singapore Opera House, not that any durian every comes from Singapore. Sorry to say. Probably the most well breed durian is the Thailandnese, Monthong. But my friend will argue about this since she said her all time favourite is Penang durian (I forgot the name) which I have never tasted before. So, no point of arguing since I am not in the position to compare. I am easy to please person. So, I am good with small Indonesian under breed durian which taste absolutely amazing. And here, in Jakarta particularly, we dont just eat them fresh. We make them into dishes. How clever are we? 😋

Hong Tang

leave a comment »

Working at Pantai Indah Kapuk (PIK) for the past (almost) four years, I feel the urge to mind what people say about foodism at PIK. One of the names I often hear is Hong Tang.

imageAccording to some people, Hong Tang is a dessert shop from Taiwan. Other brands will be Black Ball, Honeymoon Dessert, Honey Bean and some more names that I cannot understand. And among them, Hong Tang is said to be the best.

So me and my friend went there last Tuesday. It took only 10min drive from our school to this shop. It was quiet but people kept coming in when we left around 12 am. I asked the waiter to point out their specialty. So, the best sellers are Grass Jelly 29, (something) 41 and Hong Tang 80.

We ordered Grass Jelly 29, just with different ice cream flavour. So here is mine with Matcha (green tea) ice cream. It was great. I love it. But maybe next time, I’ll try not to be health-freak and order different ice cream flavour.

Today was one of those sweet days of friendship. After a long long long paused, we finally got together, me and my other 3 besties. Ladies with stories and food and shopping and more stories and snacks and more shopping were just perfect. I was so happy that even though life sometimes sucks me to death. It indeed gave a little sweet after taste. That was one of the moments to remember. Thank you ladies for a good night out! Cheers!

It was another #gleeful friday when we planned to meet up at one of our fave malls, PIM. We had a light dinner at Sushigroove and a time of exchanging stories. It felt great to just be myself talking about anyone with my own verbal way. Ha! Go figure!!

We had girls shopping out at The Body Shop as well. And i got raisin strawberry cake and some bottles of ibu Rudi’s famous sambal. Booyah! 🙂

We missed our friend, Fany, though.
