TRUE ASIAN HERITAGE - CHINA


It all started from a simple question from a friend: "Cin, mau jalan-jalan ga?" to which I asked, where? "China." So I instantly took up the offer! So this friend of mine happens to work at Red and White China Indonesia. To be honest, I didn't get what he was up to even after the initial meeting. All I knew was they do journalism while I also post my activities on social media. No info regarding who will be there and who will pick me up either. It all started so mysterious and I was DEAD INSECURE! All alone in a country I can't even speak the language of! But anyway I just went with it and found out all the details when I got to China - TALK ABOUT BEING RECKLESS!

Anyway, the host of this trip was CRI Online China. They are a media company that you can google of, inviting representatives from many country which are Serbia, USA, Ukraine, Australia, France, Thailand, Indonesia (me! hehe), Egypt, Korea, Nepal, Bangladesh. Our itinerary was Chang Chun - Yanbian (Yanji) - Helong - Beijing.


So these are the first (and last) friends I made during the trip. It's kinda like fate because since I landed in Changchun until I went home I only hung with them. They're from Boise, Idaho, United States of America. Coincidentally, our landing schedule was only different by 20 minutes, hence the early introduction. The left one is called Chad Chase, the one on the right would be Jonathan Conti!

Alright let's start the storytelling time! This trip would be more like a sharing of personal experience rather than itinerary list, since it's a media trip that consists of mostly cultural content. I'm even sure that only around 1% of the readers would be truly interested, so are you one of them? Keep reading or just scroll through the pictures if you're up for it :)

BERKAH DATANG DARI YANG BERSIH


WOOT WOOT! Do you have any idea what we're going to have this time? If you, like most Indonesians, love spices, you must've tried one of these fine specimens:
AYAM GEPREK!

DINING WITH THE STAR - RASA RESTAURANT AND BLUE TERRACE AT AYANA JAKARTA


Dining with the Star series is coming to an end and it would be a sad parting for me as I have been pampered with such mind blowing culinary experience every time I come! Ayana Jakarta has proven themselves to deliver the best as they have 2 venues: Rasa Restaurant with True Aussie's beef and Blue Terrace for its lamb selection! Let's start with Rasa!

DINING WITH THE STAR - PA SO LA AT THE RITZ CARLTON HOTEL PACIFIC PLACE


It's time to dine with the star! A full course meal at Pa So La Ritz Carlton Pacific Place was a night to remember. This time, True Aussie Beef and Lamb presented its luscious Angus Beef Tenderloin in the masterful hands of 5-stars chefs in 4 different hotels! Our first itinerary was to experience Pa So La's interpretation of the dish by Chef Sean MacDougall. Chop chop!
