Just a flash back on my trips that I went during the last few weeks, first was Bandung which only lasts for 3 days 2 nights. So my next trip has to be longer and it happens to be around 1 week! Exciting and totally fun 😀
For 1 week planning, my destinations are to Semarang, Yogyakarta and Batu Karas… I guess many of you might not know where is Batu Karas, which I will cover in the next few blogs in order to keep you all (my readers) waiting..
My trip starts really early at around 3am, due to avoid any traffic jam during the long holiday (Reason : Lebarang in Indonesia), and it takes us about 16 hours to drive all the way from Jakarta to Semarang, although it can be more faster. Just a bit inside story, sitting in a car enjoying the view is always something that I enjoyed… Enjoying the sounds of music going in through my ears, being with someone who makes you comfortable and enjoyable makes the whole trip even more interesting. Suffering much through enduring urinate on the way (manage to stop by at pit stop, and queue for like 30 minutes to use the toilet ) -__-” , finally we arrived at Semarang at night around 8ish… Without hesitation, we tried this place where I was recommended by my friend who stays in Semarang , Geisha! A combination of mixture Japanese, Italian and (could not remember the 3rd one, sorry peeps).. hahahah We just sit right in the middle of the place and quickly ordered through the menu.
The place where you were surrounded with cutting edge designs, romantic candle-light served dishes, feel the breeze windy weather, overall you just feel very comfortable hanging in that place. It will be fun too for group hangout/gathering.

Just after dinner, we decided to go to a place where they are famous for the desserts and night scenery. The place is located at the top of the hill and we are able to view really nice night view. At the restaurant, they mainly served ice cream and pancakes. We hang out there for a while just to taste the specialty that they offer. What do you think? Looks yummyy, isn’t it ?! They tend to closed at midnight, so do not miss out the place.

Since we only get to stay at Semarang for just a night, we have to make use of our time wisely 🙂 Thus, we tried to try as much food as possible before we moved on to the net destination. Next morning we woke up at 6am to get things ready. Some of you might be wondering what we have for the breakfast… Answer : Famous Semarang Lumpia !! We managed to try 2 different version of lumpia where I was told that it is quite famous in Semarang. But stay tuned for the Day 2 at Semarang , and where I will post all the great food !
