I think it’s Mid-Autumn Festival now, I can see the restaurant also sell Moon Cake and lanterns. The Lanterns has various design, such as dragon, fish, phoenix and even they have Crayon Shinchan and Minion design, very colorful hanging up to the ceiling. Min brought Owen along to see the lanterns, Owen seem interested with the lanterns.

653 MID AUTUMN MERCHANDISE

Ben and Mom have some business to do, so just me, Wie, Min, Dewi and Owen together. We’re hanging out and shopping at the Sun Plaza, one of the biggest mall in Medan. We’re having lunch at Uncle K Kopi Tiam. Kopi Tiam is like our vocabulary to describe Coffee Shop but it more sound Asian! It has a big space for an Coffee Shop with nice design, very woody. It also sell foods like Roti Canai, Martabak, etc. Min said it always crowded in peak hours.

654 BABY IN THE MALL

We ordered Iced Coffee, Es Cendol, Ambula Juice, Half Boiled Eggs with Toast, and Martabak Rendang. All are DELICIOUS! The Martabak Rendang is like pancake crepes with traditional coconut milk and spiced beef as the filling plus Curry Sauce, it’s so BIG, THICK and DELICIOUS! and It’s CHEAP! Fantastic!! I will come back again for this menu!

“Very deilicious and afforable! Very recommended!”

656 UNCLE K YUMMY

This is the funny part, Owen was crying and made us panic to calm him down. Dewi tried to give him milk but He didn’t want to drink milk. Maybe he want something different. We tried the iced coffee, Dewi used her finger to take a drop of iced coffee and let her son taste it. He calmed down, eyes open, his mouth chewing fast his mother finger, we laugh! He likes it! Sometime using spoon. Owen loves COFFEE!! He cried and wanted more.

657 I WANT COFFEE

After Ben and Mom have come to Sun Plaza, we’re gathered. We had early dinner at ZingDo – Korean Restaurant. All day only eat and eat and eat again. But it’s fun, love to see my family are so happy in every pictures that I captures, especially my mom, happy grandma!

Family Trip 2013 – Jakarta & Bandung (Part I)

My sisters, Wie and Min will come to Jakarta for holiday. They planned to go to Bandung too. Min has organized for the Bandung tour for 2 days 1 night. A few day later, my mom said she wanna come along too. That would be great. They’re coming at 24th January 2013 to Jakarta and stay at 4th Aunt’s house. I had a tuition to attend so I can’t join with them. After finish the tuition I contacted them and asked them whether they’re going somewhere near my position. Then we decided to go to Grand Indonesia, that’s my intention. I wanna bring them to Magnum Cafe – usually have to queue for 1 – 2 hours to enter this cafe. They have to go to some unique places here. I’m queing and waiting for them to come. They will come along with 1st Aunt, 4th Aunt and cousin, Min-min. Finally they arrived and we entered the cafe. We ordered the spaghetti, Fish in the basket and Red Jewel Ice Cream by Magnum. The elders seem not really like the western foods. Ha..ha..

Home 2012 Part III

Good morning! I woke up and had my breakfast, Mom’s Homemade Ba Cang, Ahh this is my favorite food. Usually I bought it but now finally I can eat my own mother’s handmade after waiting for so long. So delicious !!

It’s a good cloudy weather. We have to go to the cemetery for Qingming Festival. There’s a lot of offerings, fruits and foods to bring there. We prayed our father and ancestors. Burning paper gifts for the departed. It’s an oppurtunity to remember and honour them.

After finish, we’re back home and go visiting our relatives. Then we’re going to the marketplace to buy the ingredients for dinner. My mother’s going to cook seafood for me. She knew I loved seafood. She bought some fishes and prawns. We saw ‘Udang Galah’ (Big headed prawn / King Prawn), It’s very delicious (especially the head). We seldom eat this king prawn. It costed IDR 150.000/kg. My mom asked me Did I want it ?, too expensive.. I said no, but they knew I want it because they notice whenever I called them I always mention King Prawn for dinner when I’m in Jakarta, so my sister kindly buy it for me. Wew.. I’m touched! For 1 kg, we got 5 Great Prawns.

Go back home and my mom’s starting to cook. We also invite Ben’s fiance, Dewi and our close friends. Hmmm, what do we have here ? Check it out!


And it’s also the perfect time to enjoy the delicious durian pancake that I bought from Medan… mmmm~

The best part is the family gathering, dinner at the same table, chattering and take a lot of silly photos. It makes us feel young and happy. A lot of laughter and joy. Delicious foods, Happy Family..

LOVE MY FAMILY
