  1. You sure know where this will lead. A new fresh start of me taking my love for food to the level. Of course, I’m gonna start recognizing the ingredients from their names, forms, and smell, then I’m gonna cook and experiencing the joy in it, the neverending experiments plus most of all, I’m gonna share the fun with everyone! My dreams are bigger than life, ayay. Just wait and see! ^^

  3. Dear Rian,

    I’m including your blog in the list I build on Indonesian Food Bloggers here:
    + http://epicurina.blogspot.com/2010/07/indonesian-food-bloggers.html

    As the list is just starting, and I’m reviewing each one of them, you can see for yourself that the list is still quite short. Therefore, should you have any recommendations kindly please inform me and I would include it in my list along with some comments. The criteria is simple; it generally contains writings on Indonesian food, and is done in English.

    Best regards,

    Bayu Amus

    • Hi Bayu,

      Thanks for the credit. It was a pleasure to be included in your good blog and I shall contribute to you whenever I found something good to be recommended.

      However I wish to inquire something and I will send an email for you soon.

      Thanks again! ^^

  4. You seem to have tons of dining experience and yet somehow manage to keep your almost slim figure. Could you give us some tips on that ? πŸ˜€

    • A very interesting remark and question! πŸ˜€

      Anyway, I’m not that ‘slim’ like you said but probably what I can say actually that I manage to keep my meals not more than the usual 3 times a day and not abusing it. Snacks? Not too often as well and I’m not really into sweets.

      Hope that would help but nonetheless always remember that we are all in shape actually. Round is a shape! πŸ˜€

  7. Hi Cousin,

    I felt the excitement by reading your blog, well done bro ! I hope someday we could make our own business together

  8. I just got back to Jakarta and happy to find your blog ! Was a bit lost where to go out here and your blog is an awesome guide πŸ™‚ Do you know any nice jazz place or 20’s swing place to hang out ?

    • Welcome home! Thanks for your kind words and enjoy your stay here. πŸ™‚

      I really like jazz but rarely go to the clubs, although I can direct you to two places notable for the jazz scene.
      The first one is Black Cat in Arcadia, Plaza Senayan – hopefully it’s still there. πŸ˜€
      The second one is Red White Lounge in Kemang, owned by Indra Lesmana if I’m not mistaken and he gigs frequently there.
      It might not be your regular 20s kind of jazz – which I really like also, but will surely satisfy your jazzy needs. πŸ™‚
