What to eat in #Perth

Hello Everyone! I know i have shared this on my Instagram account weeks ago. But i guess it wouldn’t hurt if i share these as one of my blogpost too! haha.. So today, i’m gonna share with you on what to eat in Perth!

Apparently this quiet town have a lot good food to offer. My friend said the trend has been changing quite tremendously.  Ten years ago, most people will dine in their own house for dinner and most shops are already closed by 5pm. But today, you have vast varieties of food to choose from from breakfast to supper.

Too bad we only have 3,5 days to spent in this capital of Western Australia. So, here’s are my list to eat when you are in Perth! 


This Italian Restaurant has been famous since i dont know when. All my Perth Friends has this Ciao Italia at their top list when it comes to what to eat in Perth. Since they talked about it many times, so we made Ciao Italia as our first stop in Perth.

Ciao Italia has their flagship restaurant at South Perth area that does not accept reservations, but bookings could be made at the newer location in Nedlands. More over the one at South Perth is a little inconvenient if you’re bringing babies. Since my friend brought baby along with the stroller, they said it is more convenient to go to Ciao Italia in Nedlands instead. So we as tourist just follow the locals lead.

And it is indeed the best Italian i’ve had (outside the one in Italia itself of course). As i mentioned on my IG story, everything is literally nice over here.. and everything are meant to be shared, at least for us Asian. haha..

Take Ciao Italia Fettucine for example. It is super nice and  huge and so creamy. I myself cant finished this alone. I love the al dente texture, not soft yet not so hard. it is just perfect. Ciao Italia Fettucine has the combination of marinated tender chicken strips, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and spring onions, fresh diced tomatoes in a creamy white sauce.

Another two that we ordered as our main dish were wood fired Porcini Pizza and Calamari ala Griglia. Goshhh, im not sure if i were too hungry or everything is just nice here. Ciao Italia Porcini Pizza has generous ammount of prosciutto (Italian dry cured ham), porcini mushroom and a large ammount of mozarella and ricotta cheese.. Ahh, major love for this thin pizza.

The Calamari ala Griglia doesn’t smell fishy as well, which mean they are using fresh seafood. Well, i am quite sensitive towards seafood and had allergies before. But this one feels so fresh and tender. They only grilled it lightly and tossed some lemon juice on top with fresh salad at the side.. *kurang cabe botol aja sih kata aku. ahhaha.. so indo yahh..

And below, as stated! Hands down the best Tiramisu ever! I’ve tried many tiramisu, the one at Da Paolo Singapore that everyone is talking about as well. but this one is super good! Now i know why Ciao Italia is on everyone’s list! You really need to head to Ciao Italia when you’re in Perth! ❤

Who’s up for fish and chips by the bay?? Some review said Kaili’s is better, some said Cicerello’s is nicer. Since google review for Kaili’s is higher, we decided to go there. *anak review emang. haha.. It turns out to be a good meal experience for me. All the fried ones definitely a good one. More over when you dip it to their tar tar sauce.

Apparently their mussels are nice too! I’m surprised i can eat mussels. haha.. Cause i had bad experience with mussels and oysters and clams. so i’ve been very picky. But since it’s Freemantle, i guess i have to try, at least one..  and it turns out to be a good one, and i had more than 3 mussels. haha..

3. Viet Hoa

If you’re looking for something soupy in the middle of rainy Perth. I would like to recommend this humble Vietnamese restaurant. They served a good bowl of Phe (Vietnamese noodle) and tasty tender pork chop. Quite feels like a homemade meal with their homey taste.

I guess all food in Australia is served in a generous ammount. So, if you cant eat much like me. It is better to order one first, then decide whether or not to order another portion.

4. Good Fortune Roast Duck House

I am not a big fan of duck. But this one Chinese restaurant is quite popular amongst Asian in Perth. So we decided to give it a try.

We ordered a plate of roast duck, roast pork and BBQ pork along with stir fry long bean and spicy salt and pepper pork ribs.

All are good for me. The least tasty was the duck, since im not a duck person. But me and my friends love their roast pork. Crunchy and tender at the same time. And ohh the fats! Hahaha love the fats. Another homey meal when you are craving for Asian food. As for me, the best Asian food is still Angke Restaurant in Jakarta and Taste Paradise in Singapore.

5. Chocolateria San Churro

I’m always up for churro! Maybe because it’s hard to find a good churros, so im down to try any Churros anywhere.

And apparently this lovely Perth has a wonderful Churros place. It is a little pricy for this one plate of Churros and dips though. But yeah, i guess once in a while won’t hurt. Moreover most meal in Australia is considered pricy.

Their have four dips for us to choose. Golden dips, dark chocolate dips, milk chocolate dips and strawberry dips. Apparently the golden dips has a strong caramel taste. Some love it, but some still prefer the dark chocolate better. The milk chocolate dips is everyone’s favorite, and strawberry dips is the least favorite, eventho I thought it’s not bad. Haha

Well, it’s a must visit when you’re in Perth. It’s a chain dessert place, so you can find it in many place. But we went the one at … cause it’s just right in one lane with Good Fortune Roast Duck restaurant.

Chocolateria San Churro 



6. V Burger

If you love trying out gourmet burgers. V burger is a must try in Perth. They have a wide range of burgers, from the classic ones to unique ones.

We tried three burgers and a lot of side dishes. If you’re a chicken person, you have to try their Chicken Kamikaze. It’s like the gourmet version of McD McSpicy burger. They add soy mirin glaze, fried onion, lettuce, tomato, house aioli & wasabi mayo for the sauce

We love their Madame Truffle. Tender Beef Patty, Grilled Onion, tasty Truffle Aioli, Triple Cheeses and Grilled Mushrooms with extra Bacon! The truffle aioli is the bomb! If you love truffle, this is the perfect burger for you.

Tried out their Sir Bacon too. Which consist of Grilled beef patty, bacon, tomato, lettuce, pickles, onion, cheese, mustard & house burger sauce. For me, it’s a normal beef burger tho. The other 2 is more delicious for me.. hehe

Dont forget to try out their Halloumi bites! I love this fried cheese bites too. Haha. As for other side dishes. It’s normal good for me. But worth the try

New Zealand : Hobbiton Movie Set

Why holiday always flown by so quickly ?? *sadddd
Guess it is true that time flies fast when you’re having fun. haha

As some of you know, i went to Australia and New Zealand last month. and all i can say, Australia is great and New Zealand is awesome! And Ohh, i tell you, New Zealand air is just so perfect. Setiap tarikan nafas yang gw ambil tuh berasa super fresh. Langsung ngerasa semua oxygen tersalurkan dengan baik ke seluruh tubuh gw. Beneran perbaikan kualitas hidup deh kalo kata gw. Haha.. Oke, i might be too much on this. But  It’s so rejuvenating for someone who stays in Jakarta like me.

Do you know that Air Quality Index in Jakarta is one of the worst? Jakarta AQI is 149! Whereby the healthy AQI is between 0-50. So, Jakarta is already categorised as one unhealthy city. =(

And do you know what’s the AQI for Auckland?

It’s freaking 7 !! and 40-50 around city area. The gap is too much.. No wonder i feel much healthier when i was in Auckland. haha..

Anyway, i only got 6 days in Auckland. So, practically i only have 4-5 days to roam around the city. Will tell you the city part later on, cause i just cant wait to share to you about Hobbiton!! But before i show you the beauty and the cuteness of this Hobbiton movie set. I’ll share a bit about how we went there.

Me and my friend were thinking to get a local tour from Auckland City to Hobbiton Movie Set & Waitomo Caves to see the Glow worms. The cheapest tour we could get was USD 229 (NZD 356). We thought it would be easier for us and less tiring, because they provided us the transportation + entry tickets + lunch.

But since i stayed at the south, i was afraid i couldn’t catch the timing. as they only have 1 trip / day from Auckland city area. And to get to the city by bus from the south area is about 45-60 mins in the morning.

So, we tried to check if it is cheaper to drive ourselves to these 2 locations. We tried to check a few websites and found that this new Toyota Yaris Car for NZD 35 / day. After we calculate the tickets and gas, it turns out it is much cheaper to drive ourselves to Hobbiton Movie Set and Waitomo Caves to see the glow worms.

Rented Car  : NZD 35
Gas : NZD 63
Hobbiton Movie Set Tickets : NZD 168 for two ( NZD 84 / person )
Waitomo Caves Tickets : NZD 106 for two ( NZD 53 / person )

Total : NZD 186 / person   **We saved about NZD 170 !

So, we ordered the car from this website, and drove ourselves there!

WhatsApp Image 2019-08-10 at 5.41.37 AM

If you ask me, how’s driving in NZ like?

Hmmpp.. Actually i didnt drive at all, cause i dont have international driving license yet. so my friend, Ivanna drove us all the way there, which took about 5-6 hrs in total to and from Auckland city. Thank you so much once again Iv!

Well, i actually offer myself to drive if she got tired. But we decided to follow the rules. Because :
– if something happened while i’m driving (without Intl Driving License), all the insurance cant be claimed at all. It can only be claimed by the one who signed the contract.
– my friend will get fined, cause she knows i dont have any licensed but still letting me drive.

Anyway, i guess enough of the prologue. Let’s get to the main stuff!

Hobbiton Movie Set

Located at Mata – Mata, 2 hours drive from Auckland City. A place where Middle Earth is found!

I watched the trilogy of Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit, and i love love love this place. Not really a big fan of the movie itself, but i find it super cute and amazing to see a real movie set like this. The attention to details, the cute little houses, the scenery itself, is just perfect. It’s enough to make you feel like you’re entering another world!

Do you know that this movie set belongs to one family named Alexander ?

I was in total shock to know that this tremendously huge farm is belong to only one family. I mean, whatt?! you own a 500 hectare of farm?!
and now, you manage that Hobbiton movie set too??

I wonder how rich you are, sir! You are indeed one blessed man!

Anyway, enough me being jealous. haha.. Now, a little bit background why Peter Jackson chose this as the Middle Earth.

In 1998, a team of location scouts working for Sir Peter Jackson took an aerial tour of New Zealand by Helicopter. They were searching for a tall tree near a pond that would be similar to the Party Tree described in The Lord of the Rings books. and Voila, they found the whimsical trees, standing steady and tall in the middle of The Alexander Farm.and it is just matched the aesthetic they were looking for. More over the rolling hills are perfect hobbit holes too.

Apparently, you cannot roam around this Hobbiton Movie Set by yourself.

So, the ticket that you bought is for the tour. You’ll be given a choice on which timing you want and what language you speak. After that, you will hopped on to their bus to see the stunning aerial of the farm complete with the sheeps and cows, and you will get off at the Hobbiton movie set entrance and continue with the walking tour.

And before i talk more, enjoy the view first people ❤

*spoiler alert : That huge trees on top of Bilbo Baggin’s House is Fake! We have to give a big kudos for the props team for arranging such a beautiful props up there!

Everything is so cute and pretty in Middle earth! how i wish there’s a hotel like Hobbiton Movie Set, would love to stay there at least a day or two to enjoy the view. haha

The tour itself is about 2 hours. It is considered fast for me, since we cant take too much pictures. They timed everyone there, so everyone can get a chance, and you cannot go back yourself if you want more pictures.

The NZD 84 that we spent is inclusive of one free drinks at the Green Dragon (The Hobbit Bar). You can choose a range that is only available at Hobbiton. They have 3 alcohol drinks and one non-alcohol drink. I tried the non-alcohol drink which is Ginger Beer that taste sweet and gingery. haha. Well, we can only that as we still had a long drive after Hobbiton.

Be prepared to walk alot, so please use comfortable shoes, and it’s a little bit windy and cold down there during winter times. so, wear thicker. Also, be pretty all the time girls, since you dont have much time to take pictures. Haha.. but most of all, enjoy the pretty view as much as you can. you wouldnt have this back at your country, or at least my country. haha..

Apply Visa Australia Online – Lebih Murah 500,000 dari Agent

Hello Temands,

Dua minggu lalu aku baru apply visa Australia – via online gituh, dan ternyata apply online itu sangat mudah, walaupun agak banyak juga documents yang harus di attach (hampir sama kayak apply via agent). Plus applying online itu ternyata super cepet loh, Jadi aku baru submit application di jam 10 malem tgl 26 May 2019, terus langsung di approve 4 hari kemudian, dan langsung dapet visa buat 3 tahun! *yeayy. hehe

Jadi aku mau share nih gimana caranya apply online, mudah2an membantu yahh gais.. hehe

1. Create ImmiAccount 

Klik ‘Create an ImmiAccount’ dan isi semua yang di bintang-in yah! cuman ada 2 lembar kok. Kyknya create FB account aja lebih panjang process nya. haha.. Tapi di page ke 2 itu, kamu harus create username, password, dan security questions.

Nah, kalo kamu punya memory dory kayak aku. Mendingan di catet deh semuanya, karena kamu perlu log-in terus nanti kedepannya.

Screen Shot 2019-05-31 at 11.20.24 AM

Screen Shot 2019-05-31 at 11.22.06 AM

Nah, habis create ImmiAccount, nanti kamu di kirimin email confirmation. Jadi harus klik link-nya itu dulu, baru account kamu bisa active.

2. Log in to ImmiAccount 

Setelah account kamu active, kamu bisa langsung Log-in ke ImmiAccount. Nah, di page ini aku saranin kalian buat perhatiin maintanance nya deh. Takutnya udah cape-cape isi, ehh lagi maintenance, sayang, takut gak ke save. Ntah knp berkali-kali log in, selalu aja ada maintance berkala. haha

Screen Shot 2019-05-31 at 11.23.08 AM

3. Submit New Application – Visitor Visa

Nah, setelah logged in, kamu akan di hadapkan dngn banyak pilihan. Sama kyk jodoh, bnyk pilihan, tapi cuman satu yg kamu perlu. HAHA

Jadi langsung aja Pilih tab Visitor –> Visitor Visa (600) , terus centang deh agree to the terms and condition, habis itu kamu tinggal isi deh 18 halaman applikasi-nya.. Jangan lupa di save yahh kalo mau exit. Soalnya kemarin aku pikir mereka auto-save, ternyata tidakk! *nangis di pojokan.. huuu

Dan, jangan di diem-in kelamaan yah.. dia bakal auto logged out juga kalau kita gak lanjut isi applikasinya. *another faint moment.. Jadi total kemarin aku ngisi tuh lama bngt.. ada kali 1 minggu cuman buat isi applikasi doang.. karena pas lagi sibuk juga di kantor, dan malem udah males isi. haha

Screen Shot 2019-05-31 at 11.25.32 AMScreen Shot 2019-05-31 at 11.25.51 AM

 4. Attach File Supporting Document 

Setelah mengisi 18 pages, skrng kamu harus scan / foto semua particulars kamu untuk di upload. Nah, yg ini PR juga, karena lumayan bnyk yg harus di scan.. In my case sih, aku cuman foto aja, di flaylay gt terus aku crop yg lurus.. hehe.. abis gak ada scanner di rumah.. Paling passport yg aku minta temen aku scan-in, soalnya semua lembar yg ada cap dan visa harus masuk juga.. dan apparently susah buat foto passport, karena takut passportnya susah di tekuk2 gt.. hehe

  • Evidence of current employment or self-employed 
    Yang ini aku sih cuman attached surat cuti yang udah di approve guys.. dan ada tulisan kalo aku bakal balik lagi kerja setelah pulang liburan.. klo km self employed, harus attached SIUP.. jadi lebih bnyk lg yg harus di attach.. hehe
  • Evidence of planned tourism in Australia
    Nah, ini aku cuman attached rough itinerary aku, tapi lengkap tuh, pagi mau ngapain, siang ngapain, sampe resto yg kira2 aku mau kunjungin juga aku taruh.. hehe.. Dan aku gak attached flight ticket sama hotel, karena emang belum beli semua dan hotel booking bukan atas nama aku. sempet deg2an takutnya di tanyain.. untungnya cukup info-nyaa.. hehe..
  • Travel Document
    Ini di scan semuanya yg ada cap sama visa nya yah gais..
  • Evidence of financial status and funding for visit
    Disini attached 3 bulan bank statement yg aku minta dari bank aku + di legalisir yahh.. Dan disini aku sih gak minta reference dari bank.. jadi purely 3 bulan bank statement aja.
  • Family Register and composition form
    Attached Kartu Keluarga kamu disini. Bbrp bilang harus attached birth certificate juga. Tapi aku nggak sihh.. hehe
  • Photograph
    Aku attached pass foto yang baru aja disini dngn background nya putih. Bukan foto passport kamu. hehe.
  • National Identity Document : KTP Indonesia Raya kita terchintaa..

Screen Shot 2019-06-11 at 12.53.31 PM

5. Payment 

Setelah semua sudah di submit, waktunya pembayaran gengs.. Dia ada tawarin pembayaran via paypal atau VISA.. Nah, aku bayar nya pake kartu VISA aku. Dua-duanya sama, mereka akan charge kamu sebesar AUD 140, plus surcharge fee kalo gak salah.. hehe..

140 AUD = 1,379,000

Dan kalau lewat agent yg aku check, mereka akan charge kamu IDR 1,930,000.

Pokoknya setelah aku hitung kurs, kalo apply online, kamu akan hemat sekitar 500,000 – 550,000 rupiah daripada apply lewat agent.

Screen Shot 2019-05-31 at 11.30.15 AM

6. Acknowledgement and waiting time

Ketika pembayaran sudah selesai, kamu akan langsung terima acknowledgement letter bahwa Australian Embassy sudah menerima application kamu. Dan skrng kamu tinggal nunggu aja deh..

For my case sih, aku gak nunggu-nunggu amat. Karena mikir mungkinbakal 2 mingguan kali yah baru di appove. Soalnya sempet tanya travel agent, terus dia bilang visa approval biasanya 15-30 working days.

7. Approval

Dan ternyataaa, hari 4 aku di approve gengs! Dan puji Tuhan lngsung dapet 3 tahun! hehe.. Jadi lngsung mau ke Hillsong conference deh. HAHA.


Nah, Visa yang kita akan dapatkan adalah electronic visa, karena kita gak kirim passport kita kemana-pun kan.. Jadi nanti mereka akan email kita e-visa nya, dan kita tinggal print aja.. hehe.. Mereka pun udah ada data base kita di system, but just to be save, mendingan di print sebelum kita pergi, dan kirim ke bbrp email. takut hilang akutu.. HAHA. 3 tahun kadang2 takut misplaced kann. hehe..

Laluuu.. Ternyata Visitor pass nya bisa buat belajar apapun selama 3 bulan! Sumpah bngt, jadi mikir, apa ambil short course gt yah 3 bulan di Ausi.. hehe.. Kalo ada yg tau2 sekolah atau Institution yg suka buka short course gt, mau dong di sharee.. hehe..

Mudah2an postingan ini membantu kamu-kamu yang mau apply visa Ausi yah! ❤

Croatia Must Visit – Plitvice Lakes

Stunning, Stunning, Stunning.. Guess that’s all i can say for this beautiful Plitvice Lakes.

I never thought that i’ll be here someday. Well, i love to travel. But sometimes your mind limit you. Things like, ‘Croatia is too far away from my home country’, ‘Is Croatia Save’, ‘Who’s gonna go with me, since i don’t do solo-travel’, and other random thoughts. Well, maybe it’s true that you proximity place a huge part. Like, you will feel safer when you travel to place that is near / familiar to you, or at least speak the same language.

I knew Plitvice Lakes for quite sometime ago, it just keep showing up on our local TV when they cover like, ’10 Best waterfall in the world’ or sth similar like it. And as the world is getting closer (thanks to the internet) i kind see it more often. Things become, a little bit familiar, you somehow know some stuff about Croatia, it might be super random, like Game of Thrones shooting place that took place in Croatia for example. But hey, at least we know something about Croatia. Haha.. and i actually quite amazed as well to know that travel industry in Indonesia is getting wider. Sometime ago, many Indonesians may not know about Croatia at all. Like some westerners who does not know where Indonesia is. haha.. But now, Croatia turns into a popular destination for avid Indonesian travellers.

Okay, let’s move on to my stunning first destination in Croatia. Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of Croatia most unique destination. It has 16 interconnecting lakes that has stunning turquoise water that you can stare all day long, and to top that they have 90 waterfalls with different sizes, with stunning viewpoints for you take pictures. more over if you are a drone pilot, guess it will be even more jaw dropping.

Plitvice Lakes is so huge that you cannot finished it all in one day. This pretty place became protected national park back in 1949, and since 1979 the place is also listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Many people visit Plitvice Lakes National Park either from Zagreb or from Zadar and Split. As for us, we travelled by the tour bus all from Zagreb, which takes about 2-3 hrs to reach Plitvice.

We went there in March, where the weather is still pretty cold for us Indonesian, since we live in tropical country. So, we were still wearing long-john, long shirt and a coat. I know it may sounds ridiculous for some of you, but 9 degrees was quite cold. Haha. Luckily the sun shined brightly that day, and the 5KM walk made us feel quite warm. >.<

As i said before, this lake is so stunning. If i stay nearby, i might go to jog everyday (eventhough) i am not a sporty person. haha.. Well, come on, they have pretty lakes, nice trail, fresh air, serene atmosphere, i bet most of us would love to jog here, or bring a nice book to read by the lake.

Oh, if you love to jog or hike or simple want to explore the whole lakes section of the park, they have special 18,3KM trail for you to conquer. As for my trip, since i went with a tour group, we took the shortest route.

The shortest route is 5,2 KM long, and it takes you along the Upper Lakes, all the way to the Proscansko Jezero, and end the trip with short boat ride across the Kozjak Lake. and the shortest route takes about 2 to 3 hours. I think this route is Not that psychically demanding, since my dad easily gets tired and still can walk through it (of course with a lot of stops too)

Apparently Plitvice lakes entrance fee is always changing from season to season. Why so? Cause too many visitors come during summer time, and less visitors during winter time. Clearly people love to spend their summer here, so if want a less crowded timing, then you should avoid July-August.

All i can say is, this is worth the visit if you’re travelling to Croatia. Plitvice Lakes National Park might be one of your unforgettable place. Probably the only advise from me is to bring your own drink and pee before you go in, cause you’ll have a hard time to find a cafe / vending machine and a toilet. haha

I guess nuff said. Enjoy the beautiful pictures below, everyone! ❤

Perpanjang Paspor Online 2019

Hello gengs! Beberapa minggu lalu aku baru aja perpanjang passport online nih. Awalnya agak bingung, karena gak pernah perpanjang passport di Indonesia, dan system online-nya ternyata gak compatible sama product Apple. Tapi setelah download di android adik aku, ternyata prosesnya gampang banget! Jadi aku mau share disini nih, gimana sih kemarin aku perpanjang passport online, semoga membantu yahh.. hehe

Step 1 – Bikin Akun di Website Imigrasi Online

Screen Shot 2019-02-18 at 1.12.17 PM

Setelah masuk ke website http://www.imigrasi.go.id/, klik ke icon ‘Layanan Antrian Passport Online’ dan langsung aja ikutin step by step pendaftarannya. Disana nanti akan di suruh buat username, password, details nama lengkap, alamat tempat tinggal, email, nomor HP dan nomor KTP.

Setelah berhasil bikin akun lewat laptop. Waktu itu aku berusaha banget buat daftar antri lewat website antrian passport, yang ternyata gak compatible dengan produk apple.

Step 2 – Download ‘Antri Paspor’ di google play 

Akhirnya aku pun minjem android adik aku dan download deh. Disini tinggal isi username sama password kamu aja, terus nanti tinggal klik ke ‘Antri Paspor’ dan pilih deh imigrasi terdekat kamu. Setelah itu akan di tanya pilihan waktu, ‘Pagi atau Siang’, berapa pemohon dan yg lainnya. Setelah berhasil, kamu akan langsung di berikan QR code seperti di bawah ini. Jangan lupa screenshoot atau save as PDF untuk di bawa nanti ke kantor imigrasi pilihan kamu.

*biasa cek jadwal antri pagi2 yah, soalnya kalo sore-malem gt udah gak bisa biasanya..

Screen Shot 2019-02-18 at 1.39.06 PM

Screen Shot 2019-02-18 at 2.20.18 PM

Step 3 – Ke Kantor Imigrasi (Isi form applikasi)

Langsung datang aja ke kantor imigrasi di hari dan waktu yang sudah di tentukan. Lalu, langkah pertama yg kamu harus lakukan ketika sampai adalah, ke layanan informasi di sebelah kiri kamu. *Akan sedikit kyk pasar, karena semua orng mau berebut tanya, jadi kamu sabar2 aja yah..

Disana, bilang aja kalo km udah bikin appointment online di jam tersebut (misalnya jam 2-3pm), nanti dia liat dulu QR code kamu, terus bakal kasih form untuk kamu isi kembali. Jadi jangan lupa bawa pen hitam atau biru , terus harus inget nama panjang orang tua, alamat plus tanggal ulang tahun mereka yah!

Step 4 – Antri untuk dapat nomor antrian disana 

Setelah isi form, nanti kamu tanya lagi harus kemana.. haha.. soalnya yah gt dehh, emang agak bingung, tapi masih oke kokk.. hehe..

Nah, setelah isi form, kamu akan di antri-in disini, jadi kamu akan antri sambil duduk gt. Kamu akan di panggil satu2 dari sana. Misalnya satu orang di panggil maju, nanti duduknya geser satu juga. Begitu terus deh sampe kamu maju ke depan ketemu mba cantik / mas ganteng disana.. hehe..

Sesampainya di depan, kalau kamu perpanjang passport aja, hanya akan di tanyain QR code yang kita punya, karena si mba / mas ini yang akan nge-scan ternyataa, lalu butuh passport lama dan KTP aja (bawa asli dan photocopy) TAPI siapin juga Kartu Keluarga sama Akte Lahir (asli dan photocopy). Antri disini gak lama kok, karena mba/mas nya lumayan gercep.

Step 5  – Antri untuk di ambil sidik jari dan foto 

Setelah di antri disana, nanti kamu akan di kasih dokumen ini, yg sudah di rapihkan sama petugasnya.. Lalu kamu pindah deh antri kedalam, dan tinggal tunggu aja sampe nomor kamu di panggil. Step yg ini juga lumayan cepat, karena bnyk loket petugasnya. Tapi agak berasa aneh aja, karena dia cantumkan juga nama panjang kita di layar. haha.. Kalo yg mau modus kenalan, bisa lngsung tau nama lengkap deh.. HAHA.

Nah, setelah di panggil, kamu akan di tanyain KK sama Akte Lahir disini.. Ini tergantung petugasnya, ada yang tanyain ada yg nggak. Tapi kalo kamu mau buat passport baru / pertama kali buat passport, semua nya itu pasti butuh yah, bukan option lagi.. bahkan butuh dokumen lain, tapi aku gak hafal, jadi cek di website nya lagi yang guyss.. hehe..

Setelah itu, kamu akan di ambil sidik jari dari kesepuluh jari kamu. dan ambil foto. Step ini agak sedikit lama, karena alatnya agak sulit baca sidik jari kitaa.. haha..

Step 6 – Antri untuk dapat Slip Pembayaran 

Setelah di ambil biometrik, kita di suruh tunggu lagi. Karena dia lagi lagi rapihin dokumen kita, untuk di masukin ke slip pembayaran. Duduknya jngn jauh2 dr counter kamu, soalnya mrk akan panggil nama kita manual, gak pake machine lagi..

Kemarin aku dapet nya yg 48 lembar, passport yang biasa aja, karena e-passport nya lagi kosong dari November 2018. =( Mudah2an pas kamu apply, udah ada e-passport nya deh yah.

Untuk passport yg baru, aku bayar  :

300 ribu (untuk passport biasa) + 55 ribu (jasa biometrik – foto dan sidik jari)

= Rp 355.000

Dan berikut cara2 kamu membayar passport nya..

Jenis Paspor Keterangan Biaya

e-Paspor 24 halaman pengganti yang hilang/rusak yang masih berlaku disebabkan karena bencana alam. Rp350.000
Jasa penggunaan teknologi sistem penerbitan paspor berbasis biometrik Rp55.000

Step 7 – Pengambilan passport

Kamu harus bayar within 30 hari, kalo nggak pengajuan kamu otomatis akan di tolak. Kalo aku kemarin sih, langsung bayar di ATM BCA deket rumah, dan langsung jadi 4 hari kemudian. Aku apply hari Kamis (31 Jan), dan di SMS hari Rabu depan (6 Feb) kalau passport sudah bisa di ambil kapan saja.

Jadi Jumat (8 Feb) pagi nya aku langsung aja ambil. Berikut syarat pengambilannya.

Di booth pengambilan ada 2 loket gt. Loket pertama adalah dimana kamu langsung aja taruh slip pembayaran BCA dan bukti pembayaran kamu di tempat yg sudah di sediakan. Stelah itu, bisa duduk manis deh untuk antri. Nanti ada petugas yg ambil slip pembayaran kamu, terus nama kamu akan muncul di layar kecil, nah disana lah kamu bisa liat nomor antrian kamu.

Setelah di panggil, tinggal cek passport baru kamu, dan tanda tangan dehh! Gampang bngt! Layanan online passport ini bener2 mudah sih sbenernya, walaupun awalnya agak ngebingung-in.. haha..

Aku suggest, kalo udah sampe kantor imigrasi di sini sering2 tanya security nya deh, karena kalo sotoy, bisa2 kamu antri yang harusnya gak antri.. Soalnya bnyk kejadian di orang lain pas aku antri disana.. hehe.. Semoga membantu yah gengs =)

Singapore : EarlyBird Cafe

Two weeks ago, i made another impromptu trip to Singapore to settle some stuff. Apparently this running errands to Singapore thingy is getting more frequent. Which sometimes it made me tired, but super happy at the same time.

Well, i think i cant deny that i kinda miss living in this little red dot. =)

During this very short trip, me and my Singapore friends made time to go to this one little cafe to have a heart to heart session. A session that i missed the most. It appears that i am not that open to new people, even though i am quite an extrovert person. Haha

Anyway this cafe is called the ‘Early Bird’ cafe. A cafe that’s located one block away from Bugis MRT station and had a yellow popping colour that you will surely notice. This little nice cafe apparently is very comfortable for catching up, having a sip of afternoon coffee, even work remotely and gazing at the passersby one in a while. I personally love their simple decor, and not that noisy kinda area.

Other than the ambiance, i think they have fascinating menu for brunch / dinner, and heard that the taste is not bad either. But since we already had our lunch, and we just want to hang out a while. We only ordered drinks and their truffle fries. I personally think they have a nice Truffle fries (SGD10), even though i somehow feel the one at PS cafe is nicer, or maybe smell nicer (read : more generous in their truffles oil) hehe.

I ordered their mixed juice (SGD 7) since i wanted to drink healthier things now. The good thing is, all their juices are freshly made. My friend ordered their cold brewed sparkling tea (SGD 6.50) which come in a big bottle that taste weirdly nice for me. And my other friend ordered a glass of hot Mattcha Latte (SGD 5.50) that is really thick which i’m sure all green tea lovers will like it.

BALI : Taman Air Spa

I think it has been the fifth time that i visited Bali this year. Apparently Bali is very popular destination for every events, be it for international events to private ones, all the more for wedding celebrations. I know having a private party in Bali over the oceans or up on a cliff can be very beautiful, especially when the sun goes down and give pretty hues all over the skyline.

But apparently having a destination wedding or business trip (as for me) is pretty tiring.

The traffic that we have to go through, the waiting time at the airport, the flight itself, and the drive to our hotel can take a lot of energy. Even though what we do is only sitting quietly and probably just playing around with our gadget or reading some books.

Nowadays, i’ve been looking for a spa anytime anywhere. Gosh.. Not sure if it’s the age issue or having a spa is always a good idea when you’re kinda tired. Haha.. not those only massage place, but those with nice scents, good scrub and flower bath. *pampering day mode on.

Finally, after hosting a pretty wedding at Conrad, Nusa Dua, I decided to have my me time in this pretty space called Taman Air Spa. Was just googling around, and found this gem in Sunset area.

Taman Air spa has a lovely interior design for a spa place. A space that’s designed rightly for resting and relaxing. The nice smell all over the place, friendly staffs, beautiful view, proper therapists and one more important thing, they have a very clean space! All of the above made my spa experience whole in Taman Air Spa.

Not only that, after went to a few spa places jn Bali, i think Taman Air Spa has a good price too! I spent Rp 375.000 for 2 hours spa treatment that includes massage, body scrub, and flower bath. Oh, btw i think they have a different price between Indonesian / KITAS holder and foreigners. Don’t forget to check with them first.

And oh, this is not an endorsement. Purely good place that i just want to share.

Who loves ‘Babi Sambal Matah’ ?? Goshh! As for me, i love it so much! The deep fried pork with the sambal matah makes a good marriage of something that you called ‘Heaven’!

Well, i might be a little bit hyperbolic here, but i do love sambal matah with everything that is deep fried. haha. Anyway, i bet a lot of you already know that one famous warung that sells babi sambal matah in Bali. I always go there to satisfy my sambal matah craving whenever im in Bali. But lately, the pork is getting harder to chew, and getting longer to wait. But i am still willing to wait and eat the spicy sambal matah. guess i’m just a slave for nice sambal. haha.

When i was in Bali last month for my gig, one nice lady said that we have to try IBAB Bali. They have one decent place and nice babi sambal matah too! Since i’m a sucker for sambal matah, me and my hosts from Tehila House Canggu, straight forward went to IBAB Bali right after church service.

And Tadaaa!! Indeed IBAB Bali is one decent place to have your lunch / dinner, even-though it’s a little bit warm since no air-con inside. Oh well, guess a lot of eating place in Bali doesnt have any air-con. haha. Their colourful old windows decoration reminds me of potato head too. But i love their sort of open space concept, high ceiling and the industrial feeling.

Now, let’s go to their menu! We ordered Babi Sambal Matah and Roasted Pork with rice! We love their fried pork with its sambal matah. Love the pork that is very tender and not dried, no porky smell, and love their sambal matah, eventho it’s not that spicy for me.

The roasted pork is nice as well, very tender and has nice portion for one, accompanied with pork satay and pork crakers. But as for me, i’ll still opt for Babi Sambal Matah! >.<

Korean Food Guide : What to eat in Seoul

Hey guys! I just got back from Korea, and gain 2 kg from my 10 days of trip. Gosh! *i am still in denial! I thought all the stairs i took in Korea train stations and all the walk will shed the calories, apparently my intake was still much higher than the output. Haishh.. As i mentioned on my VLOG here, i did not expect much from Korea, since i’m not a K-Pop nor K-Drama fans, and not even a fan of bibimbap. Well, i can eat bibimbap, just not a fan of a bowl full of vegie. Haha.

Anyway, i love doenjang-jjigae (soyabean paste stew) a lot! it is something that i always order when i visit every korean restaurant in Jakarta / Singapore. But apparently most of doenjang-jjigae that ive tried in korea is rather bland. so sad =( Maybe i am that one ‘anak micin’ who loves salty or stronger taste. Haha.. I have tried a lot of korean food within my 4 days of trip in Seoul, But in this post, im just gonna share my favorite! ❤

1. Saemaeul Sikdang (Korean BBQ)

Even tough i don’t really like bibimbap, i like Korean BBQ! Well on additional note, i think i’m more to a BBQ person rather than a shabu-shabu person. We tried one fancy korean bbq named TWO-PLUS KBBQ in Gangnam area before we went for this one. And apparently the fancier one is less nicer than this Saemaeul Sikdang. HAHA. Well, TWO-PLUS BBQ has a very nice aged tenderloin, but the beef tounge is such a flop.

Saemaeul Sikdang can be called a house of pork, since they only served one kind of beef meat. And i have to say all the pork meat here are good! Or maybe i can say that they marinated all the meat nicely, so when you grill the meat, you can still taste the sweet tasty flavour out of that juicy meat. They give plenty for a portion as well, which can fulfil your hungry stomach that wont burn out your wallet. And of all doenjang-jjigae that i’ve tried, this place has the best soyabean paste stew so far. Haha.. It has salty and spicy flavour with tender tofu inside. It’s so my kind of soup.

I learn that they have many outlets around seoul, but we went to their outlet near Sinchon station exit 3. *When you’re out from exit 3, take the second right, and you’ll see many shops on your right side. Just go straight a little bit, and take the first right turn rightaway, you’ll see this restaurant on your right side.

2. Sim Seun Tang / Simpson Tang (Budae Jjiage) 

I remember i first tried an army stew or Budae Jjigae in a small korean stall in Dhoby Ghaut Cathay, Singapore. I still remember how it looks and taste like, a very nice korean hot pot with a lot of things inside, accompanied with nice soup and instant noodle.

After trying a few army stew in Singapore, i always thought that the soup in an army stew, wouldn’t be that much. But apparently the one that i’ve tried in Sim Seun Tang, is a little bit different. The soup is so plenty, like you’re eating a bowl of ramen. Or Maybe it’s the way they have it here in Korea? Anyone wants to share?

Anyway, this budae jjigae that i tried in Myeongdong area is so nice, love the spicy salty kinda tangy soup based. Guess all ingredients in army stew is the same everywhere else, whereby they put sausage, spam, kimchi, mushroom, ham, and instant noodles. So what makes the different is the soup based. and i think they have a nice soup to slurp during winter times. and if you like korean side-dishes, i have to say they have great side-dished too! love the salted fish and spicy fish-cakes. haha.

You can find this restaurant at the junction of Myeongdong area, just opposite Olive Young. Well, i know the direction dont help much. Haha.. Since myeongdong is full of labyrinth that i myself got confused, and they have a lot of Olive young as well. Anyway, if you see a rather big junction with Citibank and Olive young on the right, this Simpson Tang is on your left building, on the second floor. Sorry guys, but that’s all i can remember. Haha..

3. Yoogane Dak Galbi 

This is a super must try when you’re in Korea! I know they have the same Yoogane brand in Jakarta and Singapore, But you cant miss this one out. The spicy stir-fry chicken mixed with instant noodle is the best! and if you’re a cheese lover, order extra cheese on the side, and dip it with your spicy chicken! Trust me, it tastes like heaven! Haha.

Well, not everything in Yoogane is spicy. So for you who cant take spicy food, you can order half-half with your friends. so, half side of the pan is pure stir-fry chicken, and the other side of the pan is like the pan full of spicy-goodness!

You can choose your carbs, between rice, noodles, sticky noodles, or udon. Since all of us is instant noodle lover, we dont even think when we order the carbs. Instant noodle it is, where-ever we go. Haha.. Anyway, dont wear anything fancy if you’re planning to go to Yoogane Dak Galbi, cause you’ll be out smelly from head to toe.

4. BHC Chicken 

Was wondering around what to eat that night in Myeongdong area, and then my friend said that she wants chicken and beer. So we went to this area, where the whole stretch of the street is selling chicken and beer. We took a stroll, and looking around which one worth the try. Apparently they have Chir-Chir on that stretch too, but Super quite on that busy night compared to the other stalls.

So we decided to pick the one with the most people, assuming that place should be nice. and we cannot be more right, BHC is hands-down the best fried chicken after KFC. They have crispy skin outside with the tender juicy chicken inside. And the Sprinkle Chicken flavour is the best! More over if you like salty cheese sprinkle mixed with onion and garlic. Best topping ever!

We just found out that BHC Chicken is a fast food chain in Korea. Trust me, i dont google anything of these beforehand. haha.. I guess, this is the most unprepared trip yet very enjoyable one. Anyway, let’s continue, BHC also have a wide range of flavour to choose from, from just a normal fried chicken, salty, sweet, until the very hot one. You just have to choose which one that you feel like pairing with your full pint of beer!

Other than the sprinkle chicken, we also ordered the boneless spicy chicken. Apparently it was very spicy for the average ones. Well, it is nice too, but we cant take much of that. So, we are sticking to the sprinkle chicken. haha.  Anyway, BHC uses 30 natural ingredients and sunflower oil to flavor and cook the chicken. So, this might be your healthier choice of Fried Chicken. haha

5. Cheong Sujeong 

This is another random restaurant that we entered, right after we stroll around Bukchon Hanok Village with our Hanbok. And we are so grateful that we found a gem in the midst of all nice-looking cafes in that area.

My friend ordered mussels bibimbap, and i ordered spicy bbq pork. My friend said she likes the mussels bibimbap so much, and all the side-dishes. Since im not a seafood lover, i dont like this bibimbap at all. And apparently they are very famous for their mussels bibimbap and mussel rice. So if you are a mussel lover, guess you should try out this restaurant when you visit Hanok Village.

On the lighter note,  i love their spicy bbq pork so much! They serve in a very big portion that myself cant finished it at all. luckily my friend helped to eat as well, else i feel so bad to waste such a good food. Love the juiciness of the meat, and the sweet-spicy seasoning! Best spicy-pork bbq so far! Super recommended if you’re around.

Bali : Pork Star Restaurant

Bali always have something new to offer. Sometimes too many new stuffs coming out together that made you confuse on which one to try first. Luckily i have some friends who are staying in this lovely island now, that makes it easier to find good new places to eat and hangout.

When i reached Bali, it was almost 12 o clock in the afternoon. And since me and my friends haven’t had our breakfast yet, We were starving like crazy. So I contacted a good ‘cici’ of mine to recommend what’s good for lunch for 6 hungry people. And she told us to go for Pork Star Restaurant in Seminyak area.

Pork Star is relatively not new though, Since it’s been around there for about 2 years. To be honest, this place is Quite easy to miss out, cause they have a small entrance. So my advise is, drive slowly when you are close by.

We started our meal by their most favorite appetizers (that’s what they say), and that’s what my good friend’s recommended too. So, without any hesitation, we ordered 2 plates of this goodness. *droll

Pork Dynamite (Rp 38,000 / SGD 3,8)

Mozarella cheese wrapped in pork bacon! These 2 crazy goodness in one single bite be like.. ahhhh! Hahaha.. Moreover, they topped it with another melted cheese. For a cheese lover like, these taste like heaven. Haha. But, do enjoy it while it’s still warm.  Else, the cheese will be kinda chewy, and the bacon will be cold and hard. 😦



Pork Tongue Sambal Hijau. (Rp 42,000 / SGD 4,2 )

I know this sounds a little bit weird, since i’m sure many of us are more familiar with beef tongue. Well, it tastes like a beef tongue for me, only a bit more firm and thicker. They claimed that they boiled their pork tongue for 6 hours, so it’s kinda tender and easy to eat.  I love the sambal hijau or green chili, not that spicy (at least for me) and it goes right with the boiled pork. Maybe my suggestion will be, to just order a plain steamed rice, rather than the butter rice. The butter rice is not bad, but it is just overwhelming for me to mix strong flavor with another strong taste.

Pork Short Ribs with Hongkong Style Sauce (Rp 58,000 / SGD 5,8)

Juicy and Tender meat, something that is very safe to order if you don’t really like Indonesian spices. I felt the sauce is too sweet for a pork ribs, but for you who love sweet food, it can be your favorite meal over there! This meal is accompanied with french fries too, which i think it can help you to neutralize the sweet hongkong style sauce.

Nasi Campur Pork Star (Rp 48,000 / SGD 4,8)

This is not your typical Bali Nasi Campur, where you have suckling pig set and pork satay. This Nasi campur consist of 4 pork goodness, which is Babi Sambal Matah, Babi Sambal Hijau, Babi Rica-rica and Dendeng that comes with steamed rice. All are good, they cooked the pork well, but my favorite is the Dendeng and sambal hijau. The Dendeng or dried pork is very savoury and the sambal hijau is just so good. Guess i just love green chili. haha.

Truffle Mushroom Pasta (Rp 55,000 / SGD 5,5)

I have to say they have the most random menu. From local pork delicacies to pork ribs, and now pasta. haha. Since there’s a friend of ours who doesn’t eat pork, so she ordered this mushroom pasta with creamy truffle mushroom choice. I thought the pasta will be a bit off. But truth to be told, this pasta is so good! The pasta is al-dente, and the mushroom truffle sauce is so good! this one taste just right, where some of creamy sauce makes you sick if you eat too much.

Overall, we had a good eating experience here! Good food with friendly price.
