Bendungan Hilir Culinary- South Jakarta

It is just right after my team presentation about the breathtaking Jakarta, I went to the Ramadhan's street food market in Bendungan Hilir . This wednesday is really like miraculous coincidence time for all happening, its more than marvelous, to skip a routine a bit.

My team was given a task by Pak Garry Rattray (our super great mentor) to make a presentation about the good and the challenges in Jakarta. So that foreigner, expatriat, tourist, travel writer, will interest to enjoy Jakarta even more and write a good thing about it. With uncountable practise, trial and improved material, we made it today!

And it was hilarious, Pak Garry invite many interesting (High level) manager and expatriat to saw our presentation. The presentation end up with applause and appreciation, I'm so glad.

My part is about Shopping and Culinary. Indeed, it was a heavy but pleasant job to searching all kind of mouth watering picture of dishes from internet while I'm fasting. And finally the one who temptated to try all those dish I was really, really, really wish to have some, and then there my friend, being a reminder of our promise to go to the famous Ramadhan's street market In Bendungan Hilir area.

Felt like someone throwing a deer into a hungry Lion.

That was the atmosphere of "Pasar Kaget Ramadhan" (Sudden-temporary market in Ramadhan).

All the gourmet food from throughout the archipelago probably exist here. I became a hungry eyes one, buying almost everything looks good; Kue Lupis, Risoles Mayo, Pempek, Pecel with Bakwan and Bihun kecap. Nah, now I can barely move because of too full.

I miss that food so badly,those are the real Indonesian cuisine, and rich with local herbs.

"Food is a mirror of city tradition. Its highly affected by natural resources, climate and tradition, thats why travelling and culinary become best friends and completing each other"~ One of my words at today presentation, lol.

Anyway for you who stay in Jakarta, its recommended to visit this place, but its not a really hygiene place as it is a street food stall. But so far I'm still good, means the food is clean enough actually, I even read news that Pak Jokowi visit and bought many food from here last week.

Itazura Na Kiss, Love in Tokyo

I am fevering this dorama right now!

Who believe I was mocking and doing poker face to all my sister babble when she promote me this movie.
Okay well..that time, I finally did a short glance to finish her fussy mouth, I saw Kotoko and Irie scene, and I tought..its a lame act. I just too oriented that Kotoko should be more powerful and energic like in Itakiss 1996, and Irie should be more cold, not baby face like that. Somehow my first impression was not that good.
But then, I keep watching because my sister just keep laughing at every scene and it made me curious.
When I'm back in my boarding house, someday I really get bored, and remember this movie, so I checked the streaming line on (advertising am i? hha).
And I found it interesting

Now I fevering, favoring, and still on going seeing this dorama. :3

The Main pair is;

1. Honoka Miki

She is cute and talented in her young age. My sister said she is not exaggerating her act and Kotoko in the manga should be like that. For me she is unique in her own way. I overdose with her cuteness in some scene, its really cute. But she should improve her act tomorrow if her dreams is to become BIG actress like Audrey Hepburn, believe she can.

I found the most dork scene, and damn, thats exactly what I felt in the XXX software training session yesterday (All session was in bloody english with native speaker). I praised a person behind me, she is from X oil company who often ask in every explanation break. I compliment how smart she is to keep asking question to the trainer, then she laugh and seems confuse, she said to me, "I ask because I dont understand". That time, in my mind I completely feels like this...

LOL, this pict depict me well.

2. Furukawa Yuki

"He is not one of the more obviously good-looking Japanese men like Satoh Takeru, but he is definitely attractive. It’s simpler, it’s nerdier but it works."~ sleepless

Couldn't agree more.

The first time I saw him, I was like...oh, Takashi Kashiwabara is definitely far better than him to play Irie Naoki, but then I found his unique way of deliver Irie character.
He was really suit Miki in Itakiss LIT, yes, both are awesome together, I can feel the chemistry.

And what makes me more admire him is, this interview on Dramafever. Yes I do agree with all the comment beside, that state his intelligence in answering the interview, he got the point in answering every question, he made it sharp, refreshing, and also thoughtful, no wonder he is science-engineering student before (ad again, haha).

Then...what makes me mooore amazed is, he is multitalented!
He loves street dance, and I like that. I like how he like and doing many big things, big dreams in his life.

It turns out that he has 10 years age gap with Hono Miki, more interesting then.
Not that I like far age gap, its just....ah, never mind,hhe.

I like how he said that Miki is the most often person who chat with him during the movie, and he enjoyed it. Some sources even said that Furu seems like interest in her. Well...I worship them definitely, they just so cute together.

Overall, my sister said, this is Itakiss version that so much alike with the manga (I haven't read it yet)

Enjoy the movie =D

Nothing But Dreams

You can take everything from me God
Because it’s even not my right to insist it
Everything in this world is yours
But please, spare me one thing…

This, which can make Aithipatt TOP who lose everything rise from this state;

This, which can make Hazuki Rensuke who also lose everything wake from this state;

This is dreams

I’ll keep struggle
Even if there left nothing but dreams
