Beach Day Out & Seafood

Last week I went to a beach in my hometown. It's not the best beach out there but to me it's the best. I used to go there on holiday with my family and friends when I was little and sometimes I still do. When I went there last week, it was rather gloomy but that didn't hold me back. I haven't gone there for like a year or so and I was so surprised that It has changed a lot, but for me it's still beautiful. Here are some shots I took...


Also on last week, my family celebrated Father's day in a local restaurant. It's one of the famous seafood restaurant in town. I always like seafood but when I was in Jakarta, I didn't get to each much seafood as I always doubt the freshness. So everytime back in my hometown, one of the things I miss is the seafood as we live so near to the sea :D. Okay back to the seafood restaurant, the food porn!

Fried Shrimp with Butter

Kangkung (Water Spinach)

Fried Calamari

 I don't know if anyone know this but we called it 'Gong-Gong' here and it's really yummy if we dip it with spicy peanut sauce. I googled it and turn out the official name is Strombus canarium. Has anyone tried this?

Chili Crabs!!

Till next time! :)
