Few important notes:
- We won the third place in the angklung competition.
- Travelling with flight wasn't as good as i dreamt.
- I love Nasi Timbel!
- Now I can recall the taste of rice. Haha..
- I want to travel more to anywhere in the world!
- Rupiah figures mentioned below must be divided by 2500 to get the price in Ringgit Malaysia.
It was my first time ever experiencing flight, flying in the air above the sky. Although it was kind of boring when it's too long in the plane where I couldn't do anything but sleep and look at people's behaviour, it was fun though! The Dutch's plane KLM brought us to and from Jakarta.
Nasi Padang. The system to count things up for payment was different from what we always do. The taste of the meals is not so much different from Malay's but it was my first time, again, eating belut. Delicious! Hey, I ate them with rice for your information. They cost Rp16,000 for belut, babat and rice.
The salesmen here are so enthusiatic to sell their products. There are tricks to play to deal with them to get the lowest price possible, or else they will play tricks to trap you to buy their products. The best way if you're not interested with their products is by ignoring them at all like they are absent around you. One more thing, don't look at their faces. They will try to look as much kesian as possible to attract your sympathy. Cet!
Stalls like this are numerous and I wonder how they actually gain profit with such small number of products sold and high competition between them? Another thing is that the halal-ness their food is questionable. So be careful.
I bought the jacket at Tangkuban Parahu with Rp110,000. Nice! Actually I can get lower price than that, but being typical Zaki, I don't really mind to pay more. Just take it like donation to the seller.
Another movable stalls. But I didn't try batagor. What is it?
Again, my first time seeing volcano just right in front of my eyes. I could the smoke originating from the ground. Subhanallah..
Picture at Tangkuban Parahu. Feel like want to go there again, but without those annoying salesmen. Is it possible?
It was so cold. Is it because I've lost insulators beneath my skin? huhu~
I love Nasi Timbel Komplit. It's like mixed rice but with certain specified lauk pauk in it. The chicken, the sambal, the veges, all are complete in one set for one mouth. *matila hari ni 1 Ramadhan aku menaip benda ni.
Picture before the actual competition. We were the only non-Indonesian group taking part in the competition while the rest are groups from Bandung and other parts of Indonesia. Unfortunately, audience are not allowed to take pictures or record videos in the hall of competition during competition going on.
This is Jahe Rempah, mixture of cengkih, various herbs, halia and of course as you can see, cinnamon. All together mixed up and there you go, a sip of drink made up herbs. To me, its taste was just nice. Not too strong. Its cost is just Rp7,500.
Nasi Bakar Merah. Not as nice as Nasi Timbel, but still I consider it as something new and cool meal. The best one is of coure its sambal. Yummy!
