Eat in Guang Zhou: 金家园 (Jin Jia Yuan)

Friday, July 29, 2011

Guang Zhou was very hot yesterday. SO HOT. I got a terrible headache but I am okay now. A glass of vitamin c helps me to get better. Me and boyfriend had Korean dishes for our lunch yesterday. Basically, I don't really like Korean dishes, it tastes different with other Asian foods (is it only me or you think so too?) But no in this place. The restaurant located not far from my boyfriend's university. I think they cook in different way, I am not sure.

 Korean popular dishes Naengmyeo

I don't really understand why many of my friends love to eat cold noodles. It's good but it's hard to swallow. Feels like stuck on my throat. I felt bad I didn't finish it, so sorry ): Lesson today: never order what you aren't going to eat it.

Delicious Squid Rice, I supposed to order this!

Spicy Rice Cake, or in Korean is Tteokbokki 떡볶이 This is my favoriteeeeeeee!
The only dishes that I finished LOL

Anyway, GOOD NEWS. The last Harry Potter Deathly Hallows part 2 FINALLY will be shown in Guangzhou theater on 4th August! My royal piano exam is on 3rd, so I guess I will have a refreshing day after it. Please remind me to bring a box of tissue, because I know I will cry hard (': 

ps: hey there, I wanna to ask about my blog images, are they working on your browser? Because my friend said her browser couldn't load the images. I checked my Photobucket account already, and I found there's a little problem last night so I can't see the images too. What about you? Tell me so I can fix it. Thank you (:

Eat in Guang Zhou: "I am not very hungry."

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

I woke up earlier today without any reason... well, actually yeah I have a reason. I want to have McDonald's breakfast this morning, but I didn't set the alarm to wake me up last night. The breakfast packet only from 06:00-11:00 AM, so I just got up and rushed to McD immediately. Thanks God McDonald counter is near my school building, it's exactly near by the Hongkong restaurant I posted here. It was 08:30 and I got home with my yummy breakfast.

Because of the breakfast reason, I didn't eat much for my lunch. I will have meat on my plate casually, but for that afternoon I only had eggplant rice for my lunch. I felt so healthy when I ate this, hahaha! I don't really eat vegetables before and I hate eggplant the most, but since I live in Guangzhou, I eat any kind of vegetables, amazing huh am I? My mom will be so happy if she knows about this.

it doesn't really like an eggplant right? this is so delicious!

This is kinda a spicy pork thing, I tell you... very very SPICY!

And by night, I had chinese food too for dinner. I don't know why I was not too hungry all this day, I ate a portion of chicken rice with black pepper sauce, I could finish them all usually, but for today nope.

Did you see the chicken meat? Okay let's see the zoom one.

jipa 2
hello chicken! :D

Sorry for the blurry caps, one of the waiter stared at me while I'm taking out the camera from my bag. Why are you so serious, heh? I just take some pics for my blog property :P
By the way, I'm getting bored here. I couldn't find any part-time job, things I do everyday: wake up, watch movies/dramas, eat, watch again or internet surfing, then back to bed. FIUHHH....

Until The Very End

I haven't watched the last part of Harry Potter Deathly Hallows yet, but I cried already.
Harry Potter was a part my childhood memory, I still remember I was bought the second book "Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secret" which is my favorite book from Harry Potter when I was in elementary school.
Can I press the reset, and we go back to the very first one? ):

Eat in Guang Zhou - Simple Eat

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

We had a late lunch for today, I was so hungry and I almost forget to take my food picture until my boyfriend reminded me of that, hahaha. We went to my boyfriend campus area, I just love to have my lunch there, they have my favorite things to eat, especially these all that I will post below!

I had meatballs again for my lunch, hahaha! But this is different, this food comes from a place in China, "潮州" (read: Chao Zhou), it's Chao Zhou's specialty. I knew this place from my boyfriend, his loves to eat this every time he goes to campus. And FYI, his family are 潮州人 too, so maybe this is the another reason :P


You can pick any kind of meatballs and another addition you want when order, they also have different price, according to what you ordered. Oh, and... all of meatballs are homemade (:

this is the special thing that I love, Fish Skin Dumpling!
I always have this whenever I eat here, hahaha

After lunch at here, never forget to have some favorite drink too :D


58C (or we call 58度 "58 du") is a milk tea counter, same like Happy Lemon, Quickly and friends. But I don't buy their milk tea, introducing you the most delicious, freshen, tasty beverage... TARAA~


This is Honey Green Tea "蜂蜜绿茶", promise me if you come to here and visit 58C counter, don't forget to try this one. A very best friend in summer especially, hahaha. By the way, I only buy honey green tea in this counter (the campus area), I don't buy in somewhere else, they have different taste, here is the best one (:

And quick post for the dinner are:



The first picture is fried noodle with salty tiny fish and the second one is dumpling.
This kind of fried noodle reminds me to "mie tek-tek" in Jakarta, don't ask me to choose the best one, I love both, hahaha. And I'm not the representative for coca cola :P

Monday, July 25, 2011

Sorry before I missed the post for day 3, I was very tired on that day so I couldn't post up the pictures here. So here is, I will show you now.

I went to a place called "龙洞" (read: Long Dong - dragon hole in English, hahaha!) for lunch and bought some various snacks there. I used to love visit this place in the first semester for buy some cheap clothes, but now I love this place because they have many kind of food, especially for their 小吃 (xiao chi - means snacks or 'jajanan kecil' in Bahasa). I went to a food stand which sell Macau Noodle, well it likes fried noodle, but they have different flavor, it's very good! Too bad I forgot to take the picture of the noodle, I was so excited (and hungry) to eat it, so yeah no pictures of this QQ noodle |:

Not getting enough with the noodle, me also bought another snacks, this is the most favorite snacks too, me and my friends fall in love with this snacks. I don't know how to say in English, but they sell something like 'gorengan', there are fried-squids, fried-sweet potato, fried chicken and chicken pops (I LOVE CHICKEN POPS!). I bought the chicken pops of course.

Today, me with boyfriend, Sastika and Darius went to salon for hair cut. Sastika decided to cut her long-curly hair to short hair, and my boyfriend also wants to cut his hair. So yeah, they busy with the stylish, me and Darius waited for them. And the result, there's nothing big change with my boyfriend, I mean boys do a hair cut almost every month, but Sastika has a big change! She looks so cute in her new short hair! Well, she was sad because she lost her long hair, but what done is done, right? You still cute with your new hair, kkk (:

After done with the hair things, I asked them to go to IKEA for eat. I'm always thinking about the famous meatballs in IKEA, and fortunately, they have 50% for the meatballs!

Eat in Guangzhou: Another 'Hongkong'

Friday, July 22, 2011

Okay, it's a lame title, but what I will show you below something related to Hongkong (again).
Remember that I've mentioned before in this post about one of Hongkong restaurant near my school? I had my dinner today there. I'm not really hungry so I just ate this delicious mian (noodle ♨) . 
It tastes like Indomie, Indonesian instant noodle, hahaha. But this is different, there were couple sausages and eggs in the noodle, really YUM! Actually this is my favorite order when winter season, but it's okay too if you eat in summer.

Something Founded in HK (BONUS POST)

Thursday, July 21, 2011

I and my best friend just had 15 hours trip to Hongkong yesterday.

I was so excited about my first Hongkong visit! Sadly, I didn't have much time to enjoy every single place there. Probably next time!

I arrived at the guest house with my boyfriend to meet Sastika and we decided to have lunch first before we went to the church. We planned to have Burger King before I realized a small Chinese restaurant near the BK location. So we changed our plan from BK to this little place to eat lunch. And guess what, WE LOVE THIS PLACE! The food is amazing! We also happened to learn how to order our menu in Cantonese, the friendly lady taught us a quick lesson hahaha!

Don't mind our sweaty face... thank you hot summer!
Hainan Boneless Chicken, my boyfriend's favorite!

and this what Sastika ordered, Chicken with Garlic Sauce Rice

now turn me, I ordered Vietnamese Chicken Rice for myself.
Trust me, this is SOOOO GOOD.

We promise we will come back to this place and try another menu. We fall in love with this place. Hahahaha.

Quick food report from Hongkong yesterday. Please wait for another beautiful food post!

Eat in Guang Zhou: Pizza Mania

Tuesday, July 19, 2011


So we went to Saizeria for lunch. What is Saizeria? It's a place where you can enjoy pizza, any kinds of pasta and snacks like chicken wings, sausages, etc. This is my favorite place to eat pasta! I don't really like pizza but sometime I will order it too. So these are what I ordered for our lunch :D


chef's recommended! Margherita Pizza
something cheesy there, nyum!


Chicken Pops.
my favorite *love*


this is what my boyfriend ordered, Spaghetti with Spinach.
Taste not bad (:


and this is what I ordered, Seafood Doria!
nyum nyum! squid zooooom! :D

Oh, another reason why I love Saizeria. They have friendly prices, RMB20 *26,800 rupiahs* for one pan of pizza, and RMB10 *13,400 rupiahs* only for their pasta (spaghetti, doria, etc). Wohoo!


So this is for the first day of my challenges. I have to go leave Guangzhou tomorrow for two days so I made this post. I'll be back for another post, okay? (:
Anyway, thanks my bb Sastika for her camera! She lent me her camera for this project, haha! :*
