June 25, 2008
Jet lag + Soccer Euro 2008 = no sleep for me. I only slept for 2 – 3 hours and yeah, I know it’s not good but I didn’t want to miss the euro 2008 matches between Netherland and Rusia. Oh and guess what ? none of the local tv stations show the match. Awesome I said to myself and I was stucked with streaming sites; better than nothing I guess.
We (me and my family) went to Church in the morning and on our way back to our car, we bought ‘Es Lilin’ (direct translation would be Candle Ice and it’s also well known as pop sickles
). It’s similar to pop sickles but not really in term of textures. There are couple different flavours: strawberry,chocolate, mocha, vanilla etc and It’s only 25 cents each . Gotta love how cheap the food is here lol.
After our little snack session (pop sickles), we went to a nearby noodle store for breakfast. It’s a well known noodle place in Jakarta and it’s tasty because it uses pork oil (majority people in Indonesia is Muslims so most noodle restaurants do not use any kind of pork related food products).
I ordered a bowl of Spicy Pork Noodle and it came with a soup. Total is $2 per person lol. Cheap eh ?
After breakfast, we went to Pondok Indah Mall for window shopping….. or not >.>. I got an interesting loot here ^^. Wondering around in the Mall made us tired so it’s time for lunch so we went to the food court. Btw, don’t thinkthat food court food is like in Canada where they have mostly junk food or fast food like McDonalds , pizza and those stuff and quality is low >.>. What you guys have in a food court in your country ? Junk food or good food?
This time, I got my self some real Indonesian food so I ordered Lontong Cap Go Meh and Chicken Satay, meanwhile, my mom got Nasi Uduk which is also called Nasi Lemak if you go to your local Malaysian/Singaporean Restaurant.
Lontong Cap Go Meh ($2.50) and Chicken Satay ($3)
Nasi Lemak ($3)
Typical long line up at the cinema. It’s always like this on weekends which is different from what I have experienced while living in Canada. We had to buy our tickets for The Hulk early ^^:;.
I rarely see this kind of line up when I go to a movie theater in Canada but considering the price there, it makes sense. In Toronto, it ranges from $8 to $12 per movie while in Jakarta, it ranges $3-$8 per movie. If you pay with certain credit card, you can get one ticket for free so it will be like $3 for 2 tickets >.> . Is this a typical sight at a movie theater where you live ?
GM Special chicken noodles for dinner. It has chicken, mushroom, veggies and some kind of fried wonton. Bakmi GM is a well known noodle restaurant in Jakarta and other cities in Indonesia. There are a lot Bakmi GM chains across the cities.
A Hobby Store at Pondok Indah Mall. They don’t have a lot of selection and the weird thing is when I asked if they can show me the box for Rider figure, they said they didn’t have the box anymore O_O. I was like wtf. They just gonna sell me the figure without the box ?
My favorite bookstor, Kinokuniya. I wish they have Kinokinuya in Canada
Japanese mangas and artbooks section @ Kinokuniya
Unexpected loot from Kinokuniya: G’s Festival vol 2 ($35) and Air Artbook ($30) so I am uber happy because I got the dakimakura and it’s my first ever dakimura dakimakura.
