1434 H - Goes to Java!

Monday, August 19, 2013

Hi guys, where have you been on this long holiday? Well, because my dad comes from Java. So, on ied day I have to go back to my dad's hometown. Yeah you're right, it's definitely JAVA ISLAND! 


But the worst thing that I couldn't pray together with fams on ied because of menstrual period. Hope I can meet ied day next year amiin.


Rasanya belum afdol kalau ied ga pake acara halal bihalal ke orang yang ditua-tuakan di keluarga. Yups right, I'm going to my opa's home in Bintaro and met my mom's big family.

Then after finished met up with all of my fam, my family and I ready to start the adventure travel around Java Island zzz.


Tadaaa first destination: SEMARANG!

Just call it as a cullinary time travel. My family really love to try a new place to eat, but of course it must be traditional! My dad's kinda anti-modern-food.


This is pindang kudus, but thanks God in Semarang pindang made by beef not buffalo. I'm really scared to death to imagine how can I eat buffalo's meat yaaakz!

It's really weird but tasted good haha. Yeah well, much better if you eat it with "karak" at the same time. Yummy.

Well, we have to continue to the next destination: YOGYAKARTA!

Jogja gave me sweet memories. At the time I arrived, this man was there for me hahaha.


Yup, this is Jogja. Belum lengkap kalau belum icip mie godhog dan minum wedang ronde tengah malam. But the crazy thing in this month is Java Island was too cold at night. The temperture belows 18degrees celsius. But it's the right time to drink hot Wedang ronde, hmmm yummy.

Selama di Jogja, gue dan fam stays in Paku Mas Hotel as always. Such a strategic place to stay, it closed to Amplaz.

Goodbye boyfi, see you again next month.

And the last destination: SOLO!

Cukup bosan dengan Jogja karena dalam setahun ini aja gue bisa 5-6kali ke Jogja karena banyak urusan yang harus diselesaikan sepeninggalan eyang putri. Akhirnya kita sekeluarga decided to go to Solo and stay at Ibis Hotel.


Sampai Solo, badan udah remuk rasanya. And thanks God di hotel menyediakan spa sampler yang pretty cheap to try. Langsung icip, 1.5jam body massage and scrub bikin meleleh. Enaknya ga karuan! It's a must-try if you stay in Ibis hotel, just come to in balance and ask for massage.

After finish, you'll get a cup of hot ginger tea which is really good for your body.


Setelah semalaman tidur pulas, paginya nekat mau berenang. Ga nyangka, Solo sedingin puncaaaaak boook
Mengurungkan niat untuk berenang, malah jadinya selimutan pake hotel's towel hahaha. Narsis dulu deh sebelum makan.


Bukan Solo namanya, kalo breakfast ya ga pake nasi liwet. Sengaja ga ambil paket breakfast hotel, biar bisa makan puas di luar hotel. Dan ternyata across hotel ada yg jual nasi liwet. It tasted good! Two thumbs up, only Rp.7000! Woooow pake banget.

Setelah itu beranjaklah kita ke serabi notosuman by Lidya yang yang exist itu ahahhaha. Dan bener-bener mantab yang rasa chocolate hmmm hungry.


After that, tepat pukul 13:00 perut mulai berontak ask for lunch. Okay let's prepare to queue for tengkleng. Yeaaaay, I got it after 30minutes queueing hahaha


Nyempet-nyempetin main ke keraton Surakarta. Amazing, historical place. I love it.

Can't describe by words how excited  I am!

Yeah, it's the day to come back to Jakarta. But before check out from hotel, gue dan Raka iseng pengen icip bakso Alex yang katanya recommended banget to try kalo ke Solo. Okeeeh ayo kita icip semangkok bakso dan semangkok balungan!


Yeah I never get enough, Add one more bowl of balungan. Enaknya paraaah!


The best thing of what all woman always imagine are: I eat too much and I lost my weight about 1kg. Crazy right? Happy!!!!
