Dapuraya

It was started when my husband (fiance at that time) and I were buying peci (a moslem hat) for our wedding. One of famous places in Jakarta to look for moslem clothes is Al Madina in Pasaraya Blok M shopping center. After browsing around, we decided to think and search in other places first.

We then had lunch in Dapuraya, Pasaraya Food Court in basement. It was the best Indonesian Authentic food court ever! There were MANY stalls selling unique Indonesian foods, from heavy meals to traditional snacks and deserts. Now they are expanding with Dapuraya 2. I became more excited when I saw Ayam Penyet Ria stall, my favorite Indonesian restaurant when I was living in Singapore. Everytime I had a hard time, Ayam Penyet Ria always could heal me. I immediately ordered the original smash chicken from Ayam Penyet Ria, and Tempe Mendoan from other stall for snack. Authentic, delicious, but not too expensive.

When I paid for the foods in the cashier, the girl offered me to create Pasaraya card for free, only by filling up a form. I like collecting cards, so yeah I took it :p Maybe this card, or they called it Pasaraya Passport, would give me benefits in the future.

Not only the foods, the decoration was also nice. All the stalls had ethnic design. And the best part was the backsound: Indonesian traditional songs. I believe foreigners would love to eat here. This mall, with tagline "The Pride of Indonesia", also selling Indonesian batik clothes in the 4th floor and traditional handicrafts in the 5th floor. It's a little bit pricey but convenient and not too crowded to shop. So, after shopping some souvenirs on the 4th and 5th floor, try the local foods in Dapuraya.

In my second visit to Dapuraya, I ordered Ayam Penyet Ria, Tempe Mendoan (these 2 foods become my must-eats here), Pempek, Es Pisang Ijo (green banana ice), and Bung-eo-ppang (붕어빵)! Bungeoppang is a Korean snack formed as fish filled up with red bean, usually sold during winter. This is a little bit out of concept of Dapuraya. Their tagline is "Authentic Indonesian Kitchen", but they also sell Korean, Japanese, Philippines, Italian and German foods. One disappointed thing during my second visit was they played Adele's songs instead of Indonesian traditional songs :(

Dapuraya is surely gonna be my favorite place to eat!

Jeju Island in 3 Days

Jeju Island, the Hawaii of Korea, where couples usually go for honeymoon, and the place of many UNESCO Nature Heritage sites, is really beautiful and romantic. Some people say we need to spend at least 1 week to explore and experience the most of this island, but in my opinion 3 days are enough. Trust me, many places in Jeju only look good in advertisement, they're good at selling it. There are no interesting places in the North and West part of Jeju Island, so you can focus on East and South. East and South parts are amazingly naturally beautiful! Here's the itinerary I recommend.

Day-1: East of Jeju Island

Manjanggul / Manjang Cave
Spending time: 30-45 minutes
Hallasan, located in the middle of Jeju Island is the only volcanic mountain in Korea. It created several small volcanic mountains throughout Jeju Island, called Oreum in Korean. One of the biggest Oreum is Geomun Oreum, famous with its large lava tube system and designated as a UNESCO Natural Heritage site. It has few l…

Review: Homestay Cahaya Sikunir Dieng

Mencari penginapan di Dieng itu susah-susah gampang. Disana tidak ada hotel, adanya penginapan rumahan atau homestay. Beberapa turis kadang menginap di kota Wonosobo, sekitar sejam dari Dieng, demi mendapat penginapan yang bagus. Pilihan di travel apps hanya sedikit dan kurang cocok. Setelah browsing sana-sini, terutama baca review blog orang, saya hubungi beberapa homestay di Dieng baik lewat telpon maupun Whatsapp. Saat kami sudah mulai road trip Jawa Tengah tanggal 12 Desember, kami masih belum tau mau menginap dimana di Dieng tanggal 17 Desember nya. Karena waktu itu kami belum fix juga sih mau berapa malam di Dieng, 1 atau 2 malam? Kalau 2 malam, keduanya di homestay yang sama atau ganti homestay?

Akhirnya tanggal 16 Desember, sehari sebelum ke Dieng (saat itu kami di Solo), kami memutuskan untuk menginap 2 malam di Dieng. Malam pertama di Homestay Cahaya Sikunir, karena keesokan subuh nya mau sok-sokan melihat sunrise di Bukit Sikunir, dan malam kedua di Homestay Serayu. Untuk

Transportation in Jeju Island

These are some remarks regarding public transportation in Jeju.
Buses in Jeju Island accept Seoul's t-money card. You can buy and top-up it in convenience store, like GS25 and Family Mart.City buses normally charge 1000won for cash, or 950won for t-money card. If you pay by card, tap it to the machine when you aboard and when you alight. If you transit between 2 buses during a certain times, fee for the next bus can be 0won, or free.Intercity buses vary depends on the distance, usually between 1000-3000won. There's no different fee paying with cash or card. When you aboard the bus, tell the driver about your destination, he will tell you how much it is, and you have to pay there directly. If you pay by card, no need to tap it again when you get off.There are 2 bus terminals in Seogwipo city. The main bus terminal is in the south-east of downtown, near the Jeongbang Waterfall, which is also the old one. The second one is to the right of the E-mart in front of the World Cup Stad…
