Sloth?!!!! Gluttony, you can imagine...the city is full of deliciousness. Greed? Of course! It is a culinary hub of Indonesian treats, for freak's sake. But sloth??!!
Nasi Goreng Tek Tek (Indonesian fried rice from a street cart vendor)
Bihun Kuah Tek Tek (Wet Rice Noodles from a street cart vendor)
Martabak Asin (Fried Pancake filled with mutton and spring onion)
In Hong Kong, which is already the city of convenience, I don't consider myself as a lazy creature. Fine. I might take short cuts all the time, but I do put in some effort to get some tasty treats. In Jakarta, it's a whole different ball game. In Jakarta, namely my sister's place, you can get almost ANYTHING (including those you can't think of) delivered to your doorstep. The above and below tasty treats were all ordered, either via phone or even SMS (That's how we ordered the nasi goreng tek tek!!! How sophisticated is that?!!!) and we enjoyed them while hardly moving our azz from the couch, watching various drama series from reality TV, chick flick, to horror....while bitching about the characters in the shows and shouting unhelpful advice. LOL!
Mie Ayam Pangsit & Pangsit Goreng Aries (Indonesian Chewy Chicken Noodle with wontons and fried wontons)
Mie Ayam LCK (Indonesian Chicken Noodles). This one is super tasty, with a hint of sweet and sour
Stir Fried Kale with Sliced Beef with Brown Rice
Asem-Asem Daging with Krupuk & Perkedel Kentang (Sour Meat Soup with Cracker and Fried Potato Cake)
Nasi Padang with Gulai Otak, Sayur Nangka, Perkedel & Sambal Ijo (Padang Mixed Rice with Cow's Brain Stew, Jackfruit stew, Potato Cake & Spicy Green Chilli)
Ayam Goreng Mentega (Indonesian Chinese Fried Chicken in Salty & Sweet Butter Sauce)
and to honor the month of Ramadhan. We ordered this rich, sweet and fragrant Kolak Pisang (Banana stewed in Palm Sugar & Coconut Milk)
Yummy treats aren't the only things you can order. 24 hr junk food fix? Mineral water? Groceries? Laundry? 24 hr Massage? They are all just a phone call (or an SMS) away! You can literally live as a couch potato.
The solution to fit into your skinny jeans after such a sinful trip isn't dieting or exercising, but simply buying yourself another (bigger) pair. Just like I did ^_*
