Rainy Christmas at Malang

Hello, lovelies~ You may be wondering why I haven't updated my blog recently. Well, let's just say that I have things to tend to in my life. I have been a little preoccupied with a few things, so I may look like I've deserted you, LOL. You know I won't desert for anything in the world, right?

So, a couple of days ago, I went to Malang with Mr. G for nyekar purposes. I'm not quite sure what nyekar is in English, but it is a tradition here where we go to the cemetery, pray for the deceased and place flowers on top of the grave. Hmm, kinda like paying our respects. It's been a year since we last went there, so this Christmas we planned on going there.

The weather was cloudy with a slight drizzle of rain when we arrived at Abdul Rachman Saleh airport. Luckily, it wasn't raining cats and dogs, else I'd be very afraid in the plane. We arrived at the accomodation safely and didn't immediately go to the cemetery since it was already dark and raining. Plus, it was already late in the evening, so we decided to go the first thing tomorrow morning.Unfortunately, we woke up late and skipped breakfast. We went straight to the cemetery for nyekar. The weather was blazing hot that day and I didn't bring an umbrella. Oh, well.

After nyekar, we went to Gang Jangkrik for lunch and I finally get to try Cwie Mie. I love noodles and their kind up to a ridiculous point that I can eat them everyday. Hell, Mr. G even created a song called 'Phanie Suka Makan Mie'. I'm not going to elaborate on that. >.<

I got Cwie Mie Special Gang Jangkrik, so I got slices of red pork, grilled pork and tongue. Mr. G got Mie Cap Cay along with a few other things like tongue, intestines, ears and grilled pork on the side. I warned him about increasing his uric acid level, but he just brushed it off. Well, we are on holiday, after all.

Meatball soup
Since it was Christmas, we decided to go out for dinner, which we rarely (almost, never) do. We were going to have dinner at Tiga Jaya, but since the weather is looking gloom and rain is imminent, we decided to eat at the Pojok Garden Cafe at the hotel. There was live music, which is always a plus for me when going to restaurants. We had a lovely Christmas dinner just the two of us, with good food and brilliant music (live music to be exact).

Before we depart from Malang, we went to Bakso President, which is known all throughout Malang to be one of the tastiest meatball soup there. The restaurant is located right next to a railway, but there wasn't any trains while I ate there.

It is located right behind Mitra 2 Dept. Store
I got the usual meatball soup and Mr. G got the same, but his is called urat. It doesn't have a smooth texture because his is mostly made of tendons. We also tried out the grilled meatballs. It wasn't as good as I thought it would be, but I guess, for the price, they're alright.

It was a very short trip, but I enjoyed every second of it. I didn't get to eat sate kelinci, but it was still lots of fun. Thanks for reading this post and I'll see you later~ ^_^
