18 Sep

Hello Visitors! Long time no see! I’ve just had a great vacation with my family a week ago, and I’ll share it all for you my dear visitors! 😀

I spent my holiday in Malang, a unique town which is located on East Java, Indonesia. Malang is a popular spot in tourism and become to a tourist destination, because there are many interesting places to visit. Check it out! What I got there!

(My little sister loves this chocolate parfait ice-cream, yummy!)

First place, I’ll take you to the ‘classic restaurant’, Toko Oen. You can order some meals and ice cream which taste are so 40’s! Lol, Yea, If you enter this restaurant, it’ll bring you back to that time, because this restaurant still maintains its interior design since 1930. Waoooo, It’s so long looooong time ago, isn’t it? At that time, Indonesia was still colonized by the Dutch, that’s why you can see the ornament which is written in Dutch language.

The second place that I’ve visited is Jatim Park 2. There are 2 kinds of Parks. If you visit Jatim Park 1, you’ll have many kinds of games for fun, but I prefer to visit Jatim Park 2, because it not only has fun games, but it also has an interesting museum and also zoo. Make sure that you have a lot of time to visit Jatim Park 2, because you’ll need a whole day for walking around this area! 😀

Hmmm… Or maybe you want to be Tarzan? Don’t worry! There is also a ‘tree-house’ which located near to the zoo! Just open your window, and yell out “AUO…UO…UO…” then all of the animals can hear you! You can stay in this unique hotel for couple days and enjoy your ‘wild life’ like a Tarzan 😉

And for last, I’ll take you to my favorite restaurant, Lol, maybe you will surprise because this traditional meal is served on the banana leaf, not on the plate. But, trust me, it’s sooooooo delicious! Yummy! This traditional meal called ‘pecel madiun’. It’s similar to salad, but for sauce is made from peanuts and served along with rice. Enjoy it! :9

That’s all my dear visitors, I hope that you enjoy in reading this post! Have a nice day for you all!


Classic Ice Cream

21 Aug

One day, I entered an ice cream café and ordered a cup of coco-ice cream. When I tasted the coco-ice cream, there was a funny experience. Suddenly, this ice cream reminded me about my childhood. How come? Did you ever have the same experience? When you found ‘something’ that you didn’t see for a long time, it made you remembering about your activities in the past and you miss it so much. That’s what happened to me.

I remember when I was a child, my mom always fill out the refrigerator with my favorite ice cream, Manna Ice Cream, because she knew that I love this ice cream very much and so did my friends. After school time, my friends came to my house to eat ice cream together.

Manna Ice Cream is a local brand, and it was a famous brand. Every store used to sell this ice cream. It produces many kind of ice cream taste, such as chocolate, coconut, durian, strawberry, tutti-frutti, etc. Now, I can tell you that the taste of ice cream is so very ‘classic’ and so 90’s! Lol. Yea, when I tasted this ice cream, I remembered about that time. My little friends, my old neighborhood, my yard, and ‘pong-pong’, my cat…

Overall, I surprised to know that this ice cream still exist in this time, because for a long time, I didn’t see this product anymore. I know, there are many brands of ice cream products, and it might be tough in rivalry. The seller told me ‘Now, Manna Ice Cream only can be found at this place’.
