Amazing White Cliffs in Indonesia + Itinerary!


Only in Madura

We went to Bangkalan, Madura. I attempted to search a delicious food from Bangkalan called "Nasi Serpang" that I really want to show you guys, but instead we headed our motorcycle to a place, where fantastic view of cliffs in white.


YES. It is BUKIT JADDIH.
So, I list my itinerary departed from Surabaya through Suramadu bridge to Madura island.



ITINERARY

< BUKIT JADDIH MADURA >


10.00 AM   Surabaya - Suramadu Bridge



We prepare everything we had (talking about some cash😜). First, we drove to my vocational school to have our tummy full for the journey. We actually search for a "Nasi Campur Babi" or hmm, what should I translate it? Well a mix rice with pork, i believe... Anyway, we searched it around Peneleh where it well-known for their Netherland Graveyard. We didn't eat the Nasi Campur, and I thought that maybe we can searched for another option. My option fell to Gado-Gado right beside my vocational (I would love to inform you later if I have my chance to come back again to that place, but right now I didn't have any document for that).
Right when our tummy is full, we headed to Suramadu Bridge (it actually near my school), we drove with a motorcycle and as you can see in the video up there, we didn't have to pay for any toll fee for motorcycle only, I believe if you choose to use car, you will get a toll fee but unfortunately I don't know how much it will cost you. The journey didn't take us too long, it only took us for 20-30 minutes and the view to the Madura island is beautiful and about windy breeze we had at there.


11.00 AM   Rest Area - Bukit Jaddih



When we arrived in some convenient store for rest, we bought a bagelen for snack while driving. Shout out for their clean toilet by the way!!!
Once we had enough rest, we continue drove to our main destination. We searched in google maps for the easiest and effective road, so we take a shortcut instead the recommend road from google. But I really need to inform you this...

I feel that my journey is still safe though, so I have nothing to scared or worried about.

PLEASE BE AWARE WITH WHAT ROAD YOU CHOOSE.
Why so?
Well, the day after our trip to Bukit Jaddih, I spoke to some of women that sell snacks, they really shocked when I tell them how I went to Bukit Jaddih, with motorcycle and no harm story. I was pretty confused, I KNOW I didn't have any harm story while driving or visiting the area. They said that we all should be careful with any kind of criminality around that area, especially when you drive with motorcycle. It's call "Begal" (read : bey-ghal). Shortly Begal is basically an act of a person or a group of people try to steal the motorcycle by harming the driver and could be the passenger also.
Well, I'm telling you about this is NOT TO SCARY you. But YOU SHOULD AWARE of your safety WHERE EVER You're going. But I feel that my journey is still safe though, so I have nothing to scared or worried about.

Well, back again with the story..



13.00 PM   Arrive in Bukit Jaddih



Shortly, the road is really not as easy as I thought. The roads are not that really well (not a straight surface most of them) and I feel shaky when riding a motorcyle and not to mention about so many speed bumps.. But we finally made it to the complex of white cliffs.

I suppose there are 3 area (and be careful you might get parking fee or entrance fee for each area) :
1. Surround by Cliffs
2. Swimming Pool
3. Goa Pote
I chose Goa Pote instead because I want my motorcycle to be safe as I can watch it while enjoying the view.


I must tell you that I had high hopes that it would be really amazing, but I found out that the lake is super green. Not the best view though, but I really enjoy structures of the white cliffs surrounded us.


16.00 PM   Ate in Bebek Sinjay - Surabaya



We utterly forgot that we spent almost 4 hours in the destination and we can't help our starving tummy. So we back again to the main road that we used and we headed right to the City of Bangkalan. We arrived in Bebek Sinjay, the famous resto origin from Bangkalan and spread widely across East Java, Indonesia (I believe).

You have to order first at the cashier and then pay, then you have 2 option.
1. If you choose to take-away meal, you can take your order on right side of the cashier (give your bill to the employee and they will prepare your meal in front of you)
2. If you choose to eat in the place, you have to take steps towards downstair, it's in the left side of the cashier. Don't worry if it's too way crowded, just wait for your call (there is a number in your bill) and they will serve you when it's your time.

We finished our dinner at 17.00 PM and we get back to Surabaya immediately before the sunset went down. I was lucky to see the view of sunset right when I was on my motorcycle, crossed the Suramadu Bridge. We arrived back in Surabaya around 18.30 PM, phew! 😊

*NOTE : All of these photos are mine.
Edited with MADURA 01 and MADURA 02 in Indonesia Preset Collection. Edited in Adobe Lightroom CC (Mobile Version).

I really enjoy what nature of Madura offered us, I will continue to explore more especially I really want to try again eat "Apen Dhulit", a sweet snack like serabi with white sauce from brown sugar.
Well that's end my travel story to Bukit Jaddih,

See you soon in other post!

In COLLEGE LIFE

5 Peraturan O-WEEK Yang Harus Kamu Patuhi!


PRE-OWEEK 2018 akan dilaksanakan minggu depan. Sudah siap belom?

Berdasarkan yang telah aku lalui tahun lalu, O-WEEK itu asyik, yes! itu bener banget. Tapi bukan berarti kamu bisa semena-mena melakukan berbagai hal yang tidak diperbolehkan dalam peraturan.
Lebih baik jaga sikap dan perilaku selama O-WEEK berlangsung. Kamu ga mau kan kalau sampai lulus bersyarat? Hih!


Berikut adalah 5 Peraturan O-Week yang Harus Kamu Patuhi!

1. BODY CHECKING

Setiap pagi selama pre-oweek maupun o-week, kamu akan bertemu dengan kakak panitia yang berbusana serba hitam. Sebaiknya kamu taati segala peraturan o-week ya. Seperti contohnya bagi yang wanita harus dikuncir rambutnya.
"Bagaimana jika rambutku pendek?"
Well, selama rambutmu bisa di kuncir walaupun kuncir buntut kelinci juga tetap aja harus di kuncir. Ingat ya, kuncirnya menggunakan karet warna hitam. Pengecualian untuk rambut yang seperti laki. Bagi pria juga berlaku seperti itu, jangan gondrongin rambut, dan juga basmi semua bulu-bulu yang berada dimuka. Smartphone selalu dalam mode off ya! Jangan dinyalaiin sampai kamu sudah berada di area yang bukan area o-week.
Pastikan pula kamu tidak pernah telat selama pre-oweek maupun o-week berlangsung. Percayalah padaku, kamu tidak ingin tahu apa yang akan terjadi kalau kamu telat :(

Baca juga : "Orientasi Universitas Ciputra - OWEEK!"


2. ATRIBUT O-WEEK

Atribut o-week terdiri dari kartu tanda pengenal, coin dan lembar rally, dua botol minum yang sudah kamu desain, buku o-week, tas o-week, dan lain-lain yang mungkin aku lupa sebutkan. Atribut-atribut ini sebaiknya sudah kamu selesaikan pada masa liburan kamu, sebelum pre-oweek dilaksanakan.
TIPS : Agar o-week mu berjalan lancar, usahakan setiap pagi selalu cross check ulang atribut bawaan kamu, mencegah lupa barang bawaan.

3. JANGAN INJAK RUMPUT

Bukan berarti untuk selamanya sih.. tapi gunanya supaya kamu menghargai eksistensi rumput.
Coba baca lagi peraturan-peraturan yang ada dibuku panduan o-week. Pasti kamu akan menemukan peraturan dilarang menginjak rumput (pokoknya kalau ketemu rumput harus baik-baik dah). Bukan berarti untuk selamanya sih.. tapi gunanya supaya kamu menghargai eksistensi rumput.
Jaga sikap dan perilaku ya! Setelah lulus dari o-week kamu boleh kok sampai guling-guling diatas rumput. Tapi ya pengalamanku sih.. aku sudah tidak ingin mewujudkan hal tersebut, ga tega..

4. SENYUM SAPA SALAM

Wajib nih! Selalu senyum sapa dan salam pada setiap kakak panitia (jangan cuman yang berbusana hitam doang), dosen, dekan, rektor dan segenap karyawan Universitas Ciputra. Menurutku, gunanya ini untuk membiasakan kita sebagai mahasiswa baru untuk selalu ramah kepada setiap orang, kamu berada disini untuk mencari relasi kan? So, mulailah dari hal terkecil yaitu ucapan selamat pagi.
You never know you need them in the future.

5. PRO-AKTIF

Selama o-week ada baiknya kamu mulai mem-branding diri sendiri kamu orang yang seperti apa. Yang mengawasimu tidak hanya kakak panitia, tetapi terdapat dosen-dosen yang ternyata juga mantau kamu. Maka dari itu, jadilah maba (baca: mahasiswa baru) yang pro-aktif. Mungkin kamu adalah orang yang bertalenta menyanyi, maka bergabunglah dengan pentas yang akan dilaksanakan saat closing o-week. Mungkin kamu adalah orang yang tipenya hafal segala sesuatu, jangan malu untuk maju kedepan dan tunjukkan bakatmu! Pro-aktif juga berarti kamu dapat mengikuti segala kegiatan dengan lancar.

Demikian beberapa peraturan yang perlu kamu taati selama O-WEEK.
Don't forget to be happy!! It's fun!

Aku padamu,

Felicia xoxo

YouTube Treat Me So Well


Being a Creator through YouTube is a quite challenging, because I started it all from this blog, exactly 8 years ago. Being a Travel blogger that also makes videos on YouTube is pretty exhausting yet exciting to share more as visual rather than just a bunch of sentences in an article. So, right now. I want to share my experience as a "Creator" for this 2 last months and give you tips to begin on your own!


So, this is my "Experience as a YouTube Creator"


1. Monthly Review Straight into Your Inbox!

Although I recently joined at April this year (2018). I am amazed with how they treat me, even it's if they sent me an email of reviewing my milestone, even if they just sent me some broadcast message with my name on it, i don't care! They seriously managed everything good, include creators. I believe this is how a company of second biggest search engine on the internet treats their community. And not to mention the GIF of confetti they've sent is a seriously a top-notch! I feel so honored.


2. A Guide of Help Forum to Answer Your Questions

YouTube also provides me a help forum when I seems confuse with all of these things and it's perfect for you (and me) as a beginner to learn from people who have already been there. You can search your typical question and you might find something good, answering your questions and that's my friend. a benefit of being in a community.


Have we connect yet?!
Click this photo up here to see my YouTube channel (traveling and my daily life)


3. They Provide You with Tons of Lessons in YouTube Creator Academy (and It's Free)

When it comes to YouTube, even you had so much to watch some of other content creator videos about what it takes to be a YouTube Creator, you will gladly found out that YouTube itself have tons of lessons you need to learn, read, ask, answer in community. Well actually, you can learn anything from this website, even you can know what next events! Did I mention it's FREE? Well yes, only for you who want to make movement to teach people, share to people. You get a privilege of getting knowledge you need.

So, here I leave the link down below if you ever wanted to be one of this huge community of amazing, dynamic and creative people. Your welcome. 

https://www.youtube.com/yt/creators/


And that concludes all of those experience so far in last 2 months.
I hope through my experience, I can inspire you to also encourage making contents.
You can leave comment in down below, and I'll be so honored to answer it as soon as possible.


I'll see you in the next post,

Felicia xoxo

Gathering Couchsurfing Surabaya

Recently, like 2 days before I went to this gathering, I was reading an article about making good content for my blog then.. I remembered, 4 years ago I really wanted to join a huge international community called Couchsurfing.

For you who still don't know what is Couchsurfing,
Couchsurfing is actually established from website, we all used to know from couchsurfing(dot)org. Basically it was an organization of people in same vision who wanted to get new friends based on hosting peer-to-peer or group people. Usually these bunch of people or a person is /or are a backpacker, in a budget for travel especially accomodation that we all know it takes so much costs from our budget. So, their mission is pretty clear besides throw hosting and surfing, as a member we can get benefit of expand our network. Sound cool!

I want to be honest with you all,
This is my first time attend a gathering of community, Couchsurfing.


It hit me 4 years ago, while still in vocational school but unfortunately in that time,
I was maybe 15 years old and the rules is "legally" register as 18 years old (well bummer 😢). But yeah, I thought why they have this unfair rules and it lead me to an answer that i got recently.
So as I mention, you can host a person or group of people, depend on your own rules (because it's your house anyway), and you are actually going to meet "stranger", you may barely know them from their profile on Couchsurfing.com, so they set this "must be an 18 years old" because, you are mature enough to handle your own business.


Okay back to the gathering last night. I documented videos for you to see.

Here I present you "Gathering Couchsurfing Surabaya"


(video is above)

I want to be honest with you all, this is my first time attend a gathering of community, Couchsurfing. We had so much fun by doing some games, meeting new people, talked about travel list we had and so much more. The most important thing is, when you first walked in to the place, they greet you and ask what is your name and also they would say their name in return. So, for me who first start it from my very first community, I learn how to socialize, friendly with people and that really helps me a lot!


So, if you haven't join in a community yet (it doesn't have to be travel community) whatever suits you, please take a step to join and socialize with many different people!


Have you join community?
Write down your experience from a community!



Till next time guys,

Felicia xoxo

Kita adalah Bagian dari Asian Games 2018

sumber : https://www.antarafoto.com/foto-cerita/v1513695636/road-to-asian-games-2018

Kamu sadar tidak? Banyak banner dan baliho yang berisikan tentang Asian Games 2018 diseluruh nusantara! Memang Indonesia sedang mempersiapkan segala hal untuk menyambut ajang bergengsi internasional regional Asia, karena tahun ini Indonesia adalah tuan rumah!

Yuk jadi tuan rumah Asian Games 2018 yang baik! Lihat foto dibawah.
(sumber : https://www.instagram.com/p/BjzQpvhnoi5/?taken-by=bulutangkisri)
Jangan malu membiasakan hal baik ya kawan untuk dukung bersama Asian Games 2018 !


Saya ingin menceritakan dua orang yang ikut serta dalam acara ini. Teman saya yakni “S” yang berasal dari Jawa turut berpartisipasi sebagai Relawan dan Puja yang berasal dari Jawa Tengah berpartisipasi sebagai Atlet Asian Games 2018.
Apa sih antusiasme mereka, bagaimana dengan perjalanan mereka menjadi seperti sekarang?


RELAWAN

sumber : https://www.instagram.com/p/BjYlM-WBEA3/?taken-by=palembangvolunteer

“S” menyukai acara olahraga dan ia ingin terlibat dalam behind the scene nya. Ia mengetahui ada lowongan menjadi Relawan Asian Games 2018 saat ia iseng mencari di Google. Saat itu ia resmi mendaftar pada akhir Februari, walaupun sempat tertunda selama beberapa hari untuk melengkapi persyaratan. Pendaftaran dibuka untuk Jakarta dan Palembang, yang mana Jakarta membutuhkan 8000 relawan sedangkan Palembang membutuhkan 2100 relawan.
Ia memilih Palembang karena ia berpikir persaingan tidak seketat seperti yang di Jakarta dan benar! Ia lolos seleksi administrasi dan siap mengikuti arahan selanjutnya. Tes Psikotes dan FGD (Focus Group Discussion) diadakan dalam satu hari, dan hasilnya baru keluar seminggu kemudian. Wow, kebayangkan bagaimana proses yang telah ia lalui untuk menjadi salah satu relawan di Asian Games 2018.

“Karena ini adalah kesempatan langka. Sekali seumur hidup. Terakhir di Indonesia tahun 1962. Kalian ini bagian dari sejarah!

Saat itu saya bertanya, “Bagaimana cara pemerintah bekerjasama dengan para relawan dalam mensukseskan Asian Games 2018?”
Ia berkata bahwa terdapat lembaga yang mengurus persiapan sampai acara Asian Games 2018. Namanya adalah INASGOC, Indonesia Asian Games Organizing Committee. Lembaga tersebut bekerjasama dengan vendor untuk memberikan pelatihan kepada para relawan.

sumber : https://www.instagram.com/p/BjPYIvlBqD4/?taken-by=palembangvolunteer

Sampai Juni ini sudah terlaksana dua kali pelatihan, yaitu :
1. Pengenalan Nilai-Nilai Olahraga (NOR)
Pelatihan ini membahas tentang pengenalan nilai-nilai yang ada di dalam acara-acara olahraga seperti Olimpiade dan Asian Games, sejarah dari Olimpiade dan Asian Games, serta pengenalan cabang-cabang olahraga yang akan dipertandingkan di Asian Games nantinya.
2. Pelatihan Umum
Pelatihan kedua sudah mulai memasuki pengetahuan dasar yaitu interpersonal dan komunikasi, etika dan profesionalitas, serta dasar pariwisata. Adanya pemberian materi pariwisata khususnya didaerah Sumatra Selatan ini disebabkan karena relawan khususnya yang bertugas langsung dengan atlet, seringkali akan berhadapan dengan permintaan dari atlet dan ofisial untuk mengunjungi tempat-tempat wisata. Apabila permintaan tersebut muncul, maka relawan dituntut untuk mampu menjadi pemandu wisata, dan menunjukan objek wisata sesuai dengan keinginan klien (atlet dan ofisial).  
INASGOC juga menyediakan baju, celana, sepatu, jaket, tas dan topi untuk relawan. Wah komplet pokoknya deh!

sumber : https://www.instagram.com/p/BjPYIvlBqD4/?taken-by=palembangvolunteer

Saya pun bertanya, “Hal apa yang paling diingat saat menjadi relawan untuk Asian Games 2018?”
Ia bercerita mengenai proses perjuangannya, untuk mengikuti pelatihan ia harus rela berkorban melintasi pulau demi mendapatkan pelatihan yang ia perlukan sebagai bekal di acara, dan tentu mungkin bagi beberapa dari kita hal ini tidaklah mudah. “S” menunjukkan pada saya apa arti perjuangan seseorang untuk naik level, mendapatkan ilmu baru dan menambah jejaring. Menjadi relawan memberikan kesempatan kepada “S” untuk datang dan mengunjungi daerah baru. Ia dan teman-teman relawan gembira berpartisipasi dalam Asian Games 2018 karena ini adalah kesempatan langka. Sekali seumur hidup. Terakhir di Indonesia tahun 1962. Kalian ini bagian dari sejarah!


ATLET

sumber : koleksi pribadi milik Puja

Saat saya pertama bertemu dengan Puja melalui dunia maya, saya bertanya di bidang apakah ia untuk Asian Games, dan ia menceritakannya kepada saya bahwa ia bermain di bidang Wushu Sanda Kelas 70 kg. Apa itu olahraga Wushu? Wushu adalah olahraga yang menyerupai kick boxing namun tidak boleh menggunakan lutut. Hanya diperbolehkan memukul, menendang, dan membanting. Bidang ini pun tidak memperbolehkan menggunakan teknik kunci. Dalam satu permainan terdiri dari 2-3 ronde dengan 2 ronde kemenangan. Kalau 3 ronde hanya terjadi apabila ada 1 ronde yang seri. Bagi yang unggul 2 ronde diberikan durasi 2 menit tiap ronde.

Saya bertanya, “Latihan butuh waktu berapa lama?”. Tak disangka ia menjawab “Untuk mendalami ya sekitar 7 tahun”. Sungguh! Itu waktu yang tidak sebentar untuk menjadi seorang juara.

Kalah adalah pukulan yang menyakitkan agar berusaha lebih baik lagi dan Kemenangan adalah jerih payah dari latihan keras yang terbayar lunas.” -Puja

Bermula saat masih SMP, Puja ingin mengikuti pertandingan tingkat Jawa Tengah di Bandungan, namun ia tidak jadi bertanding karena sedang masa ujian dan ijin kepada sekolah tidak disetujui walaupun sudah latihan dengan giat. Enam bulan setelah itu, Puja mengikuti latihan di Klenteng, Ambarawa untuk tingkat Jawa Tengah dan ia mendapatkan Juara 1. Ia melanjutkan ke tingkat Nasional dan bertanding dengan Medan namun sayangnya ia kalah. Kembali ke tingkat Jawa Tengah yang mempertemukan Puja dengan Feri, saingannya dari Salatiga tetapi kekalahan lagi yang ia dapatkan. Bagi Puja, kalah adalah pukulan yang menyakitkan agar berusaha lebih baik lagi sehingga ia tetap latihan lari, berlatih tiap sore, tidak pernah bolos dan akhirnya latihan-latihan tersebut membuahkan hasil, Puja mendapatkan kembali Juara 1 tingkat Jawa Tengah.

sumber : koleksi pribadi milik Puja

Bergabunglah Puja dengan Tim PORPROV (Pekan Olahraga Provinsi), dan bertanding dengan Sragen di final, namun baginya saingan terberatnya adalah Cilacap. Ia kembali meraih Juara 1 dan masuk ke Tim Jawa Tengah menuju ke PON (Pekan Olahraga Nasional). Pada PRA-PON (Pra Pekan Olahraga Nasional) harus melalui penyaringan 8 besar agar bisa bermain di PON. ia menang melawan Papua. Saat bermain di PON, Puja menang melawan Oscar dari Jawa Timur, seorang angkatan laut.

Seluruh peristiwa yang telah ia lalui ini membuatnya ditarik untuk bergabung dengan PELATNAS (Pelatihan Nasional) dan mendapatkan kesempatan mewakili Indonesia di Asian Games 2018.

sumber : koleksi pribadi milik Puja

Setelah saya mendengarkan cerita perjalanannya menuju Asian Games 2018, saya ingin tahu antusiasme Puja sebagai atlet dan ia menjawab, “Ingin membanggakan Indonesia dengan meraih juara 1, doakan saja biar tidak ada sia-sianya latihan selama ini”. Saya semakin kagum mendengarnya berkata demikian.

Ada pesan nih dari Puja buat kamu, sang Anak Bangsa yang membaca tulisan ini.
“Mudah-mudahan selalu sukses dan semangat mengejar impian.


Mari kita dukung bersama Atlet-Atlet Indonesia di Asian Games 2018.

Here is my quick recap of their videos that I have edited.

(VIDEO IS AT UP ABOVE)

Jogja Trip is Cancelled!!


Ahh.. It's a very nice Sunday. I have done with prepare all of my stuff, the reservation of hotel are correct and no problem, It is time for me to take an enjoy Sunday, walking in the biggest mall in Surabaya.
I have prepare a new post that should be upload Sunday at 20.00 WIB (+7 Bangkok, Jakarta, etc). But...

Before I even upload my new post about "How I Pack Lite for Travel"

(watch it up above)



My Jogja Trip is CANCELLED 😡

ASDFGHJKL!!??!

It's not fair! I've been dreaming this for my whole life (well at least for 3-4 years of study at vocational school). But um.. there is a reason why it cancel. Somehow, my parents didn't allow me to travel alone, even only driving 320 km away across province. Somehow, they didn't allow me to travel and drive away while now it's the perfect time for everyone in this country to "mudik".

*Mudik is a tradition annually where people come home, their hometown or their village, to gather with big family, before Ramadhan.

And this tradition in my country become so popular each year, everyone are on the road. It always traffic everywhere except big town, like Jakarta or Surabaya (lol😂).
So that's all their reason.
It's kinda make sense actually.. I'm not chose right date to travel. Every destinations in Jogja will be crowd by so many people, and eventually my trip will be bummer because I need inspiration, content, to share you guys my experience.

Well.. I guess next time I will travel to Jogja. Instead, I will create a content about Explore Surabaya.

See you soon!!!

Love,

Felicia xoxo

Lightroom Editing Tutorial untuk Pemula


Hai Para Pelancong Glamour! 👋

Aku dapat banyak permintaan semenjak upload foto hasil before and after dari Adobe Lightroom CC di story Instagramku. Banyak yang tanya aku edit pakai apa, bagaimana caranya dan apakah aku bisa buatkan tutorial buat mereka (?) Ya bisa dong. Aku coba jelaskan supaya kamu ngerti ya..

Jadi ini caranya aku edit pakai Adobe Lightroom ala pemula! 😆
Kalau aku boleh jujur, sebenarnya aku juga pemula yang mencoba main dengan Lightroom karena aku cukup jenuh sama VSCO yang mana kita harus beli preset mereka (biar kekinian) atau edit sebisanya karena lihat dari google. Sampai sekarang aku tetap pakai VSCO dan menurutku itu adalah aplikasi sejuta umat anak hits dan fiturnya yang mudah untuk dipelajari. Berbeda dengan Adobe Lightroom yang sukses membuat aku download sampai ke 3 kalinya, karena aku hapus lantaran ga ngerti cara pakainya.. anyway, shall we begin?


1. Download Adobe Lightroom CC

Jika kamu menggunakan iPhone, download di App Store dan apabila kamu pengguna Android kamu bisa download di Play Store. Aplikasi ini gratis kok dan lebih praktis daripada Adobe Lightroom di laptop/komputer.

2. Sign in / Daftar ke Adobe Lightroom CC

Sama seperti media sosial, kita diharuskan mendaftar atau masuk sebagai pengguna.

3. Waktunya bermain dengan Adobe Lightroom CC!

Sekarang aku bahas the fun part. Kamu perlu tau kalau ini tentang selera, karena belum tentu apa yang kusuka sama dengan kamu, tetapi untuk mempermudah tutorial ini cobalah untuk mengikutinya dan ambil intisari yang bisa kamu praktekan untuk gaya kamu dan feed Instagram mu.


Coba cek video dibawah ini



Kamu hanya perlu bermain di :
1. LIGHT

Nasi Padang - Murah & Enak!

(photo source : limakaki.com)
"Rendang", siapa yang ga kenal sih? Bahkan banyak bule cinta banget sama nih makanan khas asal Padang, Sumatera Barat. Saking cintanya, sampai dibuatkan lagu dengan judul "Nasi Padang"

The best Rendang I have ever taste!

Tanpa basa basi lagi yah,
Didekat rumahku nih ada rumah makan padang yang baru buka awal tahun 2018.
Namanya HIDUP BARU.

Untuk mempermudah kamu melihat rumah makan ini, aku siapkan video khusus buat kamu loh! 👇


RUMAH MAKAN PADANG "HIDUP BARU"

Harga    Rp. 15.000 (satu porsi, semua jenis lauk) | Rp. 5.000 (es jeruk)
Jam buka : 09.00 - 20.30
Lokasi : Jl. Raya Trosobo - Beringin Indah, Sidoarjo, Indonesia (depan jalan raya)


Review :

  • Koreksi!! Yang di video itu DAUN SINGKONG! BUKAN PEPAYA. MAAP😂💨
  • Awalnya aku ga nyadar ada rumah makan padang dekat rumah. Terus juga aku kira mahal karena tempatnya lumayan luas untuk sekelas rumah makan yang ada didaerah dekat rumahku, suasananya itu mirip rumah makan Natrabu (sebuah rumah makan Padang yang terkenal di Jakarta).
  • Dari awal beli selalu Rendang (soalnya enak bangetss). Tapi kekurangannya, terkadang cita rasa pedasnya ga konsisten dan juga pernah (dahulu) daging rendangnya terlalu banyak serat jadi agak susah dikunyah. Tapi kesininya selalu empuk.
  • Aku pernah coba varian lain sih HEHE. Ayam gorengnya nya sungguhan enak, 
  • PALING SENANG KALAU SAYUR DISIRAM KUAH (TITIK)
  • Aku saranin sih sambil ditemani es jeruk (Rp. 5000) biar makin nikmat👌

Gimana? Ngiler belum? (aku sih yes)
Kalian punya rekomendasi rumah makan padang? atau rekomendasi makanan yang enak juga?
Tulis donk di komentar💗 Kalau ada kesempatan, aku bisa berkunjung ke daerah kamu dan kita bisa berbincang-bincang mengenai cita rasa nusantara☕🍝🍚🍜🍣

Aku padamu,

Felicia xoxo
