Summer 2016. Road Trip in Norway.2

with 2 comments

Previous days here.

Day 4: Odda-Tyssedal-Trolltunga
We woke up really early. I had to take my multivitamins and mineral every night to get my body on shape for this trip. We arrived around around 9am, paid the parking fee for 200 NOK and started hiking in Trolltunga at 10am. The return hike trip was predicted to be around 10-12 h. And we had 12h or maybe 12.5h. We got back down around 9pm. It was CRAZY!

Bakwan Jagung

leave a comment »

This post is a contender of Tastemade Indonesia‘s post that I saw few days ago. When I saw it, I was like… “wth. they made a video tutorial of how to make bakwan jagung!” I felt that I should also disperse my own version of bakwan jagung. Sadly not in form of video, but yeah… I hope it’s good enough.

In my own definition and free translation, bakwan jagung is a savory corn fritter. Indonesians usually eat it for snacks (in between meal time) or as a side dish in meal. It also has other variant such as vegetable fritter and shrimp fritter. Basically, if you could make one type, you could also make the others.

Today is not like any ordinary day. It’s because I am acted as an ordinary person.

That is not a joke. I have to say living in Copenhagen as a student is something difficult to do. There I said it flat ground. Everything is so expensive that you will feel like you will die of starvation if you eat out just for once. In fact, most probably, you will die of starvation if you eat out. And I ain’t kidding you.

@Dini’s, in Horsens

with 2 comments

The rain washed Copenhagen crystal clear all day today. And it also brought a mist of grayness to all inhabitans. I could only helplessly enjoyed my homecookes meal to soothe growing melancholiness that arise along with the cold as well as flipping (or strolling to be precise) memory lanes of photos.

And I found these.



Both were taken in Horsens, at a small cozy restaurant Dini’s,  2.5h drive from Copenhagen, when I specially introduced Indonesian cuisine to him.

Tex-Mex Christmas

leave a comment »

Having tried a lot of spanish and portuguese cuisine in the past days, I decided to go for some mexican. One of the places we visited is The ‘La Venganza de Malinche.’

 

IMG_0638This place was the first (note: first), mexican restaurant that we visited in Madrid. Its name literally translate as The Revenge of Malince. It had a huge skeleton drawing in front of the door. I don’t know whether it was a welcoming thing or not, but since the internet recommended it, we tried it anyway. When we entered the place, we liked it instantly. It was very vibrant with colors, wooden furniture, black-shirt waiters and nice ambience. All menus are in spanish of course, and my knowledge of mexican food suddenly down to zero.

FYI, my iphone is dying. Sadly, even electronic has an age. So, before I deleted all the photos there, I am going to spam my blog with those photos. 😉

These ones were taken when I went to Surabaya for my friend’s wedding in 2012. Surabaya is the scond biggest city in Indonesia. It is in the eastern part of Java Island. The most famous cuisine among others is their duck dish. This one, Indonesian all time favourite, is fried duck with jasmine rice and chilli codiment.
