    5 Top Places to eat in Semarang according to me!

    1. Nasi Goreng Babat Hengky / Sumarsono
     


    For me both tastes good. I know there’s difference between the two but still I love both of them. The thing is if you don’t like animal “innards”, then you won’t like it.
    Addresses: They are located nearby to each other.
    Hengky: Blok K, Jl. Puri Anjasmoro, Tawangsari, Semarang Bar., Kota Semarang, Jawa Tengah 50144
    Sumarsono: Jl. Anjasmoro Raya, Karangayu, Semarang Bar., Kota Semarang, Jawa Tengah 50149
     
    2. Ayam Goreng Remaja

    The last time I went to Semarang I was addicted to this chicken. I bring around 15 raw spiced chicken home to Jakarta. I like the sweet spice more rather than the salty one. They also sell sweet grilled / fry catfish. It’s my cousin’s favorite. It was also good but I like the chicken more.
    Address:
    I couldn’t find the exact address but if I do I will update it soon ^^~
    3. Regency Risoles & Kroket

    I never get addicted to risoles this much! It’s a snack but it is a large portion of risoles. There are three kinds of flavors, the original one, mushroom and sausage. I brought home 5 for each flavors. I think there’s also a branch in Jakarta but it is far away from my house 🙁
    Address:
    Ruko Ki Mangun Sarkoso 86b , Semarang Kota – Semarang
    4. Nasi Ayam

    Nasi ayam was my childhood favorite food in Semarang. When I was still in elementary school, if I went to Semarang for holiday, I would often eat this. You can find it everywhere in Semarang. As for me all of them tastes almost the same.
    5. Tahu Gimbal

    Can find this easily in Semarang. I’m not really the picky type for this food but the address below is the good rated Tahu Gimbal in Semarang.
    Address:
    Tahu Gimbal Lumayan Pak Man: Jalan Plampitan No. 54, Bangunharjo, Semarang Tengah, Bangunharjo, Semarang Tengah, Kota Semarang, Jawa Tengah 50139
    There are lots of good food in Semarang but these are the food that I would definitely looking forward to eat if I have plan to go there 😀

    Have you ever feel "Out of Place"?

    Have you ever experience the feeling when you are in a certain community and you feel that you don’t belong in there? But you forced to be there, forced to not be yourself just because you want to be cool.
    I am a geek. I stayed at home a lot since childhood. 1st because my mom don’t want me to waste money. 2nd, because she often worries me even until now. Since I’m an only child, I use my free time to play games (console and online). I have trouble in socializing, I can’t do a good presentation in front of the class, I did not have confidence on anything. I experienced getting bullied until I asked my mom to go abroad. LOL. It wasn’t a fun experience. I experienced love and rejection too.
    Until I move school in high school, I gained my confidence, I can socialize more and I experienced relationship. I had a relationship with someone who was very insecure. It is still normal if he doesn’t allow me to go with boy friends, but he doesn’t allow me to go with my girl friends also. So I choose love over friends. That was a bad decision. School days should be fun without any burden of restriction of having friends. I hope he’s a changed person now 🙂
    On my second year, me, him and a few of my friends used to play Initial D and Maximum Tune. After I broke up with my ex, I began knowing more friends on this game (mostly guys because it’s a racing game). I forgot how we know each other but I was asked to join their group. Turns out one of them likes me and we had a relationship. I broke up with him though eventually but I still stayed on their group and we stayed as friends too. When it’s time for me to decide for college, I decide to stay in my country because I was afraid I cannot have any friends abroad. Now this was my mistake. I thought I belong here. I thought I couldn’t have cool friends like they are. My group became mature; mature in form as most of us already have our own car. We turn game to a real car club. This was when it began more complicated. I thought car clubs are cool, because I love racing game, racing in reality is…pumping your adrenaline!! During that time I had the guts to speed up, I had fun when my friends are speeding (when I wasn’t driving). Now I just think it was stupid. Our life is much moar important. Now I drive like an old person with a less sight *JK*, I drive normally. I don’t speed anymore. Fact is I am scared of the road now. Too many people aren’t respecting the traffic rules. Another fact, here, too many people aren’t following most rules. LOL.
    Anyway continuing to my story. I finally became more uncomfortable being with them. I had nothing to talk about. What most of them did was just going into clubs and playing poker. Another thing that gets me disappointed was there’s this one person who collects money from us every month so that we could like make an event with that money. The money is gone. WTD, you think it’s easy making money? I was at rage then, and if I think about it now I am at rage now. LOL. I mean, c’mon some people struggle to get money and you just took it. Did you not learn manners at all? After a while they started playing poker, I quit. I quit hanging out with them. Pointless. Just pointless. I am not saying all of them are bad, I’m also saying that I see some of them seemed to change. I remembered some of them are bad mouthing me, trust me I KNOW. Without you telling me, I KNOW. I have a great intuition in all things. Now when I think about it, why the duck I was friends with them. Meheheh. Some of them are good people though. I mean real good.
    The point is. I spent my life trying to fit in with a group I did not fit. I also spent my life thinking about what others might think about me. Now I just don’t ducking care.

    What I did.

    First was of course asking God for help, getting close to Him makes my mind grow to be more positive. This is especially for people who have trait of a loner like me or doesn’t have a lot of friends.
    Second I would search for positive books (or quotes or articles on internet), that’s why I have quite many psychological related books. But you know when you read that kind of books you need to stay realistic 😉
    Third, I tried not to care what others think. It was hard at first because I am a type of person that hates to get bad mouthed.
    Fourth, try to see where I fit in. 
    It takes years to change mindset, but after I am through with it my life is lighter, I am now always too positive towards things. I always thinks everything will turn out good no matter what, if not, then it’s a lesson to learn!
    To be honest, it is easy for me to introduce myself to people now days. I am quite confident on engaging a conversation. BUT! There’s always this gap between me and them. I have a few best friends whom I trust, the others just friends where you say hello when you meet.

    FFXIV: Our Small Private Cottage

    Well, we wanted to buy a medium house but we did not get it because I wasn’t fast enough logging in last week! I actually prepared Rei’s ID and password already and I just needed to press enter, but when the time came I couldn’t press the login button. So I need to close it again ;_;  I was a few minutes late logging in 🙁 Got 900 queue. Luckily I got a small ward with a good house number.
    Shirogane Ward 3 #33 🙂 if you are in Tonberry, we had an open house! XD
    Here are the medias to our private cottage (Had a little bit of changes in the video).

    Disappointment Part II – Try to Change People

    To be honest. I have had too many disappointment in life. I didn’t say that I did not disappoint other people also though, but I am quite sure I have made people disappointed in me too. Me myself is not perfect too I know.
    The previous post about disappointment, I wrote about trying to change. The thing is does “changing” people a good thing? It is a good thing if you change them to a better person. According to my experience though, we cannot totally change people’s character. It’s to the point where you need to accept them for who they are. I know it is hard. It is definitely hard for me.
    My character, I got disappointed easily. During my relationships with someone, I often wanted to change them to be a better person. For me it is normal when you don’t want your boyfriend to get close with another woman, or vice versa because it leads to what you called temptation. Or other things like want them to not be lazy, have a job, 24/7 with you, etc etc, but perfect isn’t for human. One of my bad characteristic is I always feel I lack of attention (towards my partner).

    #1

    He got the looks but he wasn’t good at his economy. My mom probably doesn’t allow me to be with him. So I prayed to God for His guidance. I eventually said yes to him. We both are Christian. Every start of relationship is always great. Fresh. We went to Church every Sunday. It was great for a few months. Then we started to skipped Church, I became lazy to pray. I think it effects my relationships. I start lacking of his attention. I craved and I think it made him feels disturbed? I need to tell him or even begged him for attention. It’s going on and on until a few months. I feel there’s distant between us. I started to get insecure, I demanded him to come to my house more often and so on. I feel what I did made him uncomfortable and he started to mingle with other women. Made me more insecure and unhappy I should have break up, well I did, he begged me to get back with him. I thought, maybe he learned his lesson. But no, he did not, instead I found out that he was flirting with another woman. Why did he not just break up with me, was it because my mom has money or something? Why did he hurt me over and over again. Even on our engagement day he wasn’t looking happy. I don’t understand. I got disappointed every single day. I cannot change him to be better.

    #2

    He wasn’t my first choice, he is 3 years younger than me. What did I expect? He went to my house everyday like he was crazy about me. I actually had the feeling that we wont last long. I accepted him (because I felt he truly loved me). I know very well we did not really match for each other. Lasts for only 4 months. He was in my previous posts before. He was the very worst of my ex. While he was with me he’s still close with his ex. While he was with me he was flirting with another woman. Why do I always made the wrong choice? I think before accepting anyone I should think about it more. I should know his background.

    #3

    Kept doing the same mistake. I trust people so easily that I got disappointed all the time. I thought he was the one, but he wasn’t. With him it was like a fairy tale. He often said good things to me. Good visions for the future, but on the present time the future visions wouldn’t be accomplished if he has that kind of characteristics. We both weren’t ready for serious commitments. It was all about love, but love always isn’t enough.
    Lesson learned. We can’t change a person characteristics, a little maybe can. We can make them to be better but we can’t change them to have a different character. We need to accept them and if you can’t accept them don’t be with them or get married with them.

    A Letter to Jesus

    Before blogging this, I really wanted to complain about things going on today in my until I turn on YouTube to Church songs. I feel like I wanted to pour out about my feelings recently. I cannot claim myself as a Christian fanatic because I never force anyone to really move their religion to mine; even though I wanted them to believe in Jesus Christ. Just a heads up if I blog about Christianity it is because I wanted to share my experience and my struggles also on how God helped me through it.
    Dear Jesus,
    I have been a Christian for about 8 years now. I have been going in and out of Church. I have not been diligent going to Church. I have been forgetting to commit to go to Church, to pray, to not forget about You. All I know is that You are always waiting for me to come back. 
    I see now. All of these problems I am facing is for me to go back to You. For me to be saved again and again. I know when I am happy I tend to forget about You. I did not ask or depend on You; I depend on my own power. You weren’t my priority…until now I realized that all I need is You Jesus.

    Your Child,
    Alyssa Milano
    (yes this is my real name–not the actress though!)

    I was afraid to commit because I always on and off about religion, but recently I have committed to read the Daily Bread, I committed to pray every single day…I know it took a long time to really understands how to love and how to make Jesus priority because Earth things comes first (either it is family or lover or even money). Then today I watched a sermon (streaming) by Pdt. Josia Abdisaputera and it gives me an image of how to make Him priority. I will write it on my next blog under The Journey of a Disciple category (the name is taken by my Church topic).

    Christ is Enough – Hillsong


    VERSE
    Christ is my reward
    And all of my devotion
    Now there’s nothing in this world
    That could ever satisfy

    PRE-CHORUS
    Through every trial
    My soul will sing
    No turning back
    I’ve been set free

    CHORUS
    Christ is enough for me
    Christ is enough for me

    Everything I need is in You
    Everything I need

    VERSE
    Christ my all in all
    The joy of my salvation
    And this hope will never fail
    Heaven is our home
    PRE-CHORUS
    Through every storm
    My soul will sing
    Jesus is here
    To God be the glory

    BRIDGE
    I have decided to follow Jesus
    No turning back
    No turning back

    The cross before me
    The world behind me

    No turning back
    No turning back

    Da Perfectionist

    Has been a while and I am lacking updates for my blog website. The truth is I have been busy fixing my graphic design website (mylanodezain.com). I am quite a perfectionist for some things, for example if I am not satisfied with one thing it would bug me for life until it is solved. I haven’t finish renovating my website though. Would need some more time to finish it because I changed all of the design (third time already). So it is like I build a new website and finally I have come to satisfaction of the design (just need finishing now).
    I have some blog ideas in mind that I haven’t write and post yet but I will soon hopefully!

    Robin Schulz, David Guetta, Cheat Codes – Shed a Light

    I know it’s not a new song but I recently knew about it and it kinda gives me inspiration on writing about something o(≧∇≦o)

    Why are you keeping me at a distance?
    All that I’m asking for is forgiveness
    Are you even listening? Am I talking to myself again?
    I keep on staring up at the ceiling
    Waiting for you to give me some kind of reason
    Are you even listening? Am I talking to myself again?
    And I know you don’t owe me your love
    And I know that you don’t owe me nothing at all
    Ain’t no way I’m giving up on you
    Don’t leave me here in the dark when it’s hard to see
    Show me your heart, shed a light on me
    If you love me, say so, if you love me say so
    You know I can’t live without you, I’m on my knees
    Where are you now? Shed a light on me
    If you love me, say so, if you love me say so
    Why when I call, you never answer?
    I’ll try to talk, you keep on dancing
    I can feel you on my skin, but am I only dancing with the wind?
    And I know you don’t owe me your love
    And I know that you don’t owe me nothing at all
    Ain’t no way I’m giving up on you
    Don’t leave me here in the dark when it’s hard to see
    Show me your heart, shed a light on me
    If you love me, say so, if you love me say so
    If you love me, say something
    You know I can’t live without you, I’m on my knees
    Where are you now? Shed a light on me
    If you love me, say so, if you love me say so
    Shed a light, shed a light on me
    Shed a light, shed a light on me
    Don’t leave me here in the dark when it’s hard to see
    Show me your heart, shed a light on me
    If you love me, say so, if you love me say so

    Finally Deltascape 4.0 Savage

    It is so hard to not have a static. We cleared with 3 + 4 people helping us (Bouma Cage, Feyrbrand Leifthrasir and Mariel Crystallie + Kos-mos Y-data). Haha. Thank you guys really! I’m so grateful. And now we finally cleared without their help. I’m quite lucky of the loots except for the mounts so I think I’m done for O4s. WooHoo!~

    The Docks German Restaurant

    It’s known for it’s pork knuckles and sausages. To be honest I’m not a fan of sausages but I am sure if you are you will love this place. I am a fan of pork though! _へ__(‾◡◝ )>
    IMG_0721

    Fresh Deep Fried Mushrooms. I love mushroom. Ordered this for my appetizer and it’s really nice!

    IMG_0634

    My dad ordered Herb Bread for the side dish. I thought it wasn’t that great but I loved it!

    IMG_0636

    My mom and I ordered the famous Crispy Pork Knuckle. I think this portion is for 3-5 people. The crispy texture is real.

    Was this Sausage Platter? Tell me if I’m wrong. I did not pay attention what my dad ordered but it is definitely one of the sausages section.

    IMG_0725

    The second time I came here I ordered Tender Grilled Salmon Steak. It wasn’t on the star list on the menu and I was worried it might taste not that good. I did not want to order something heavy, but how they cook it and their spices are all perfect to me.

    IMG_0722
    The Docks Nasi Goreng Pork Belly. The amount of the Nasi Goreng can fit 2 persons like me I guess. My mom couldn’t finish this because it was to many for her and I told her to take away the remaining for me to eat tomorrow lol. It was delicious.
