BFF; …gathering at ROA by Jovian Mandagie

Assalamualaikum sahabat  & readers~!

 

11.11.2014; …throwback!!! 😀

Adoyai… sepinya blog kesayangan ni. Fuh…fuh…nyah ngko sawang-sawang! Iolls agak ke”busy”an kebelakangan ni. Apapon, aku tetap akan terus menulis di sini. Ini tempat aku mencoret cerita-cerita aku.

 

Ok…where to start?!!

#throwback story… it was on 14.10.2014. It was really hectic day. It was really exciting night. It was great time with BFF.

 

Nak dipendekkan cerita… hampir 1-2 bulan jgk tak lepak sama-sama. Last jumpa masa g outing raya last August. Perghh… betol2 busy bak menteri kitorg ni. So… lepas tambah-tolak-darab-bahagi, weolls sepakat g lepak-lepak utk celeb birthday Lin, Juju & me.

 

JOM..let’s photo talk.

Hah… guess what?? Cer teka???

Yeah… kitorg lepak makan-makan kat ROA by Jovian Mandagie in Shah Alam. Biasalah… Shah Alam is our main port utk lepak2.

Let me share about ROA.

ROA is the first FnB enterprise by popular fashion designer, bro Jovian, whose family’s roots stretch back to Manado. Malam kitorg lepak ni sebenarnya merupakan malam terakhir sebelum perasmian. Perghhh… kiranya kitorg ni antara ribuan pengunjung terawal gaks la. Kannnnn! 🙂

Look around the restaurant… it was simple and adorable. Apa yg menarik pandangan aku… papan hitam yg mencoret ttg cerita bandar Manado & Manadonese vocab. Cuba tengok betol2… MAKASE = terima kasih. Sedar tak sedar… kita pon slalu gunakan perkataan MAKASE bila bermesej secara on9 via sms, WhatAps etc. Hahaha…

 

Boleh dikatakan many of these are recipes that Mandagie’s grandmother once served at a shop in Jakarta. Bak kata Mimie (BFFwithLoVe) sumenya pedas-pedas belaka. Our favorites on that night were Udang goreng Saos, Ayam Rabe Rica & Nasi Goreng ROA. Banyakkan tak ktorg makan??? Ini makan utk 6 org. Hehehe…

.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESHah… inilah menu aku malam tuh. Disebabkan aku lambat, maka aku org terakhir yg kena makan sorang-sorang. Takpelah… perut pon mmg dah lapar.

From left: Perkedel jagung, ayam Tuturaga, Udang Woku (terpedas) & ROA Saos.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESLapar punya pasal… serious oii!

Walaupon sume BFF kata pedas giler dishes kat cni…tapi pd aku so-so je. Mungkin tahap kepedasan aku lebih tinggi. And guess what?? Bro Jovian told us that all the menu were just 1/3 spicy from the original recipe. Perghhh…

.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESSelfie… it’s compulsory!

Tengok pinggan masing-masing… pedas nak giler pon, licin jgk! Hahaha 😀

Hiasi Ramadan; …iftar with d’sengaL

Assalamualaikum sahabat & readers~!

3 aug 2013; …bonding time with d’sengaL!!!

Yeah…Ramadan telah pon masok hari ke 25. Baru hari ni aku dapat meluangkan masa iftar dgn kengkawan. Wah…susah nk percaya kan?! Hehehe…

 

Who are d’sengaL?

It’s called a beautiful friendship. KK, ENI, NS, LJ and me (opps…shortform sgt!). Kalo dah berjumpa… ada2 je ceritanya, gelaknya pon sama hebat dgn gossipnya. Wah… peel mcmtu la menjadikan kitorg nih sengal belaka.

 

d'sengal

Kali nih kitorg berempat (+plus 2) ajer. Karen, Ina, El (with Apis d’hubby & her lil sis) and me. Asalnya Liza & dilla pon nak join skali, tapi last minutes terpaksa cancel. Oklah… tahun lepas 2012 pon hanya liza, ina & aku jer sempat beriftar sesama. kira ON gaks…hihihi 😀

 

Kat mana kitorg lepak kali nih?! Puas gaks la berwassup itu ini… cari bajet murah etc. Finally…as requested by Karen, kitorg setuju la lepak kat Restaurant Wong Solo, Sek. 7 S.Alam. Menunya mestilah AYAM Penyet. Tapi aku…. ?!

Pilihan aku mestilah bukan ayam penyet. Aku pilih ikan keli goreng or paca lele! huhuhu 😉

 

Meriah?! Ehh…mestila rioh sakan. Maklumla lama tak jumpa. Gelak besar masing2… puas jugak aku menyakat sumenya. Ditambah lagi dgn karenah penglipur lara kitorg.. Muhammad Aisy Rayyan. Memang terbaek la.. tak senang duduk jadinye kitorg nih. Ummi Rayyan..confirm la sampai comot dibuatnya si kecik nih. Eiiii…geram gtu! *cubit..cubit*

Rindu oiiii…lepas rindu gaks aku nak jupe Karen, Ina, El dan si kecik Rayyan. El walaupon 1 bangunan ofis, tp amatlah jarang dpt gelak ketawa mcm hrni. Syiok abes la…

Apis (hubby El) pon join skali. Tp Awin (hubby Karen) tak dapat join kali nih. In sya Allah, Awin join our next time lepak2…!

 

Extra happy...good news?! Break news?! hehehe… just gentle reminder for Karen to take a very good care of herself. Cepat2 dpt baby… nnt bole la main-main dgn abang Rayyan, hokey 😀

 

It was really happening *muahhh*

Syukur… terima kasih Allah.
