In-flight GA0885 NRT-CGK, Garuda Indonesia

I returned to Indonesia on March 31st by Garuda Indonesia, and it was the same flight number and date (well, not including the year) to the flight I used 2 years ago. And here is a short story about this meal. 2 years ago, I didn’t order Moslem meal, but when I checked in at the airport, the staff asked me whether I would like to have Moslem meal or not, and I said yes. Maybe she asked that because I wore jilbab. Then on this flight, I thought I could ask for the Moslem meal later when I checked in. However, when I asked about the Moslem meal, the staff told me that special meal must be requested a minimum of 24 hours prior to departure. They asked other staff, and there were no more Moslem meal. They said they would try to find the vegetarian meal, and I added that Kosher meal was also fine. Finally they informed me that they couldn’t provide special meal. Well, no other choice, and I decided to eat any food they served (as long as it didn’t contain pork or alcohol) because I was really hungry. They provided two menus, and I chose meal consisted of roasted beef and tomato salad, chicken rendang, steamed rice and sauteed green beans with onion, bread and butter, panna cotta, and drinks. Some sources said that all of the served food in Garuda Indonesia are halal. But in my opinion, isn’t it strange that they still have Moslem meal whereas all foods are halal? Hmm.



Our trip ended at Enoshima and we decided to have dinner at 夢庵 (=Yumean) at Enoshima. That was my second time eating there and I ordered this menu. It contained tempura, tuna mayo salad, miso soup, and rice. I always like Japanese tempura and this tempura batter was really crispy. The tuna mayo salad was also delicious. With 1,046 yen price, of course this menu was much better than my previous tempura udon at Kamakura.

4th Day Lunch on Hokkaido Trip

Ini bisa dibilang makan-makan terakhir dari rangkaian trip bersama 母と学生の会. Makan siangnya di restoran di daerah Motomachi. Model donburi gitu, semua yang ada di atas nasi mentah, lalala. Dan ternyata saya ga suka ikura a.k.a telor salmon itu, pas lumer di mulut asin-asin aneh gimana gitu rasanya :-& Dressing saladnya juga entah apa, aneh juga. Favorit saya tetap sesame dressing kalo buat salad, fufufu.
