SUMBA IS CALLING !!!

Hello from Tambolaka!! What's that you might ask? Well, it's a city in the Southwest of Sumba, which is also the name of the airport here. Sumba is a pretty small island but they have 2 airports here. 1 is the Tambolaka here and another in East Sumba. The biggest is the East Sumba, which city is called Waingapu, also the name of the airport! 

This time, I only went on a 4 days 3 nights trip but I've explored almost all of west to east Sumba! Both are a definite opposite of the other. East Sumba, Waingapu is definitely a way more modern city-like than Tambolaka, which is a more country-side with more nature. Can't wait to explore the beauty of this East Nusa Tenggara? Let's go!

DAY 1 (WEEKURI LAKE - RATENGGARO VILLAGE - BAWANA BEACH)
I chose to go to Tambolaka from Bali and went back from Waingapu to Bali. The ticket costed me about IDR 2 mio and that's excluding my ticket from Jakarta to Bali. I guess in total it costed me IDR 3,5 mio or so, as expected since the east side of Indonesia is known to be expensive. :')


If you want to stay updated, be sure to use Telkomsel, as it's the only operator with a signal. When it comes to islands, Telkomsel has always been the best, though when you get into the deep Sumba, nothing will get you connected!

LA JOYA BIU BIU BALI

Welcome to paradise! Bali is definitely a paradise island that people will keep visiting! It's not only a tourist spot but also a place to just sit back and relax, from nature to cuisines, they have it best! Personally, though Bali is a quite small island in map, it definitely won't be enough to explore all with just a month because it is just so rich of everything! Probably the reason why so many decided to live in this paradise island!

Though we often went to Bali, we never reviewed anything about Bali in Lulabyspoon, so this time we decided to share something, this is called La Joya, Biu Biu! Why? Cause this place is super amazing! This is gonna be picture-y post cause we just want you to see how beautiful this place and picture speaks louder than words, so enjoy the view!


It's located a bit far from the city, in Balangan area and it'll take an hour to get here from Kuta. The road is very deserted with no signal what-so-ever. I went here using an online driver (but it's actually not allowed, so keep quite, kay?) and got a local as my driver, so we didn't get lost at all. Some of my friends came here using Waze and they totally got lost, so be sure to always ask around whenever you can if you're going here by yourself!

BABI GULING O'AN SERPONG


This babi guling is said to be superb, so we just can't not try it after hearing that, right? Even if it is so far, which is at Serpong! It's not that hard to find by the way. Just find the Paramount's roundabout, turn left and there'll be these shops on your left, this is one of those shops! For exact spot just look it up on your gps. Anyways, after coming this far just for this Babi Guling O'an, I saw some posts from fellow foodies that they've opened a branch at PIK!! Darn! But good news to PIK-ers!

SUSHI GO PIK AVENUE MALL

Yes, this is the most talked about newly opened sushi shop as of now! Everything at IDR 15K, not a promo price! That price definitely drew in a lot of attention cause it seems very affordable, though I personally can't say it's cheap. It's reasonable..but not cheap. I got a few tips if you're thinking of dining here, be sure to keep on reading for it! Here's Sushi Go! at PIK Avenue!


Sushi Go! one price sushi here is actually located inside the Dotonburi food court of PIK Avenue, which is on the 2nd floor and I heard that this is actually a sister branch of Sushi Hiro? Can anyone tell me if it's the truth or just a rumor?

THE WESTIN HOTEL JAKARTA


Hello from the 67th floor! Did you know that The Westin Hotel here is currently the tallest building in Indonesia?! Yeap, not Jakarta only but the whole Indonesia! Cool, huh? Ranging to 69th floor, the restaurant we're going to talk about today is on the 67th. What's unique about this hotel is that the lobby is actually on the 52nd floor..why? Cause the 1st - 51st floor is an office tower named Gama Tower and if we count the hotel only, it actually has only 18 floors, so technically it's the tallest building with the help of the Gama Tower..lol!
