Jakarta traffic has been TOO much, can’t handle it anymore. Some more, it’s been raining hard lately. You guess? Yes, craziest! Lil sis was just as hungry as a lion, then asked to dine in at Gyros Alley. I directly said YES!

Gyros is known as Greek style of marinating the lamb and chicken for 42 hours and roast it in horizontal charcoal spit.

Gyros Souvlaki (62k)
Charcoal roasted meat, Tzaziki sauce, tomato, and onion wrapped in homemade pita bread. We had the lamb. It was very tender and mouthwatering. Dip it into the chilli sauce ?? Fav!

Birthday Week

I am beyond grateful of whatever God has blessed me with. I have a wonderful husband, mom, dad, and sister.

As I turn 29 today (I don’t wanna kiss twenties goodbye), they are still and always be by my side. Wouldn’t ask for more!

Being older means that I have to be even more mature with a lot more responsibilities coming. Many more things to do and settle. Ya well, life must go on, right? Whatever it takes to become a better person, I’ll be on the boat! I’m just gonna enjoy all the rides.

Mr Manžel has always been there to surprise me on my birthday. The time has always been the same, yet the cake is always different. Tadaaa, egg tart (my favorite snack after donut) is my birthday cake for this year! Nothing fancy, trust me. I appreciate things that I love the most (got what I mean?).

Be grateful! 😉 Xo.

Sushi Tei

Who doesn’t love sushi?

My very first Japanese restaurant was Sushi Tei and I’ve been their biggest fan since then.

Just today (D-1 of my birthday), I went here with Mr Manžel and le sister. What I always look for on my birthday week in Sushi Tei is their birthday cake.

You can easily find me here my whole birthday week ’cause I always want to have their ‘sushi cake’. ;);) Love it that much!

Other than that, of course we were hungry and ordered whatever we felt ordering.

Cheese Cake Factory

It’s been a very long time not coming here. Le sister asked me this evening to have a dessert before dinner (yea I know)..

So, we granted her wish and came to Cheese Cake Factory. Each of us ordered 1 slice of cake of our choice.

This one is mine, I chose Nutty Nutella Cheesecake. I’m crazy over Peanut Butter and Nutella! A cheesecake with a strong peanut butter flavor and topped with Nutella chocolate.

Next one right here is Mr Manžel’s choice, Black Magic Truffle. For a chocolate lover like him, this cake is very chocolaty, moist, and delicious.

Last one is le sister’s! She will always choose Blueberry Cheesecake. Well, it’s their signature dessert! A vanilla sponge base surrounded by a velvety, toasted meringue and topped with blueberry topping.

Grand Serpong Kitchen

The gathering place: good food, good family, good company!

Whenever a relative comes from abroad, we always have that time to gather around. A big gathering always calls for Grand Serpong Kitchen, in the same room. We love the food, like a lot!

On 25 March 2016, my aunt and uncle came from Germany and another aunt wanted to treat them special. We as well celebrated my cousin’s birthday, on the same day. A lot of happiness to be thankful for, right 🙂

No gathering is complete without food. I know, yea. So these were the food we ordered:

image
Ayam Goreng Saus Asam Manis
image
Ayam Goreng Saus Mentega
image
Tahu Siram Daging Kepiting
image
Roasted Pork
image
Fried Chicken Skin
image
Dimsum: Lumpia
image
Dimsum: Siomay

One of my most favorites was Ayam Goreng Saus Asam Manis. They seasoned the chicken very well, very tasty! So loved the asam manis sauce. Tahu Siram Daging Kepiting was my second best meal. The one that was not to be missed! Though the place is extremely far from home, I’m still looking forward to eating here.

Hydroponic Veggies

Been eating a lot of junk food early this year and found that my body didn’t feel good toward the end.

A mother who knows me best then invested in Hydrofarm, you’ll find out more about it at http://hydrofarm.co.id/en/ or drop an email to lilygaspersz@gmail.com.

She had quite many plants already harvested and we have been eating them to replace the store-bought ones. It always feels great eating healthy food.

Here are some of veggies my mom plants:
