I am not the type who like to spend money on air ticket for a weekend trip. But this time, I was stuck with no choice ’cause I don’t think I will be able to move all my clothes in a trip (the reason to be disclosed soon! =P). So, here goes my tiring-but-fun weekend trip. XD
Spotted Kinetic Rain while queuing for Air Asia’s baggage drop at Changi Airport Terminal 1. The sculptures are designed as 1,216 raindrops and they can move, swirl, and dance around as if they are alive.
It’s raining raining….hehe. It’s quite fun watching them moving around.
This is how the city of Jakarta looks like from my aunt’s place. Crowded city with a lot of random buildings and definitely heavy traffic is expected. Everyday. Everywhere.
After my mum finished her business with my aunt, we were hungry and ready to stuff our tummy. We went to the nearest shopping centre from my aunt’s place called Central Park, which honestly look like a mall in Singapore. Especially because it has lots of similar stores like a normal mall at Orchard Road such as Topshop, Bershka, Stradivarius, and Pull and Bear.
Another thing similar to Singapore, there are long queues in front of nearly every restaurants in this mall. Oh man. Since we didn’t feel like waiting for so lunch, we went to Sushi Tei because the queue here was not “snaking” yet.
We ordered cheese salmon maki roll. Which taste oh-so-yummy. I don’t really eat raw stuff so most of the time, I order “cooked” sushi. Same with my mum. Guess, I got it from her.
Sushi Tei’s house salad. Taste very fresh even though I’ve drizzled lots of sauces on top of it.
My aunt couldn’t really eat sushi (raw or cooked) so she ordered Tendon instead (re: Tempura + rice). You can’t get wrong with tempura. Hehehe.
Assorted homey cakes and pastries. The puffs one taste like curry puff in Singapore but better. Especially when you put chili on it. The sponge cake look-alike is called “Bolu Kukus” which is literally translated to steamed sponge cake. Yellowish one at the bottom is called “Bika Ambon”, a cake made from tapioca + coconut milk. Not sure if it really comes from the city of Ambon though.
A few days in my hometown will turn me into a ball for sure. Cannot stop eating!
