Sweet Gift From Sweet Friend

Few days ago, I met my campus friend and she said, "I have a gift for you." Then she took a small gift box and gave it to me. I put the box named 'The Fudge House' inside my bag. She told me that it was from Korea (only the fudge), her father was just came back from there.

Do you want to see inside the box?

❤ Hershey's KitKat
❤ Ghirardelli Chocolate
❤ 4 square Fudge by The Fudge House

This KitKat brand looks abit different with the usual KitKat. Suddenly, I remembered that global KitKat produced by Nestle except in United States, made by Hershey, which is the competitor of Nestle. KitKat is chocolate-covered biscuit wafer bar (?) which at first made by Rowntree's of York, England. With agreement with Rowntree's, The Hershey Company has license to produce KitKat. At 1988, RownTree's was bought by Nestle, but still Hershey produced KitKat but only in US.

The ingredients is abit different with Nestle's KitKat... But I tasted the same lah couldn't find the difference, hahaha... That was my first time tasting non-Nestle KitKat. And also first time tasting chocolate with Ghirardelli brand.

Ghirardelli is a chocolate brand produced by Ghirardelli Chocolate Company. It is United States Division of the famous Lindt chocolate. I don't know what is my friend gave to me, but I thought it was 'ordinary' milk chocolate. But yeah, Ghirardelli's milk chocolate was good kok.

Fudge is kind of sweets made by sugar, butter, and milk. A little bit chewy and creamy, sometimes when you bite it, stuck on your teeth. My friend gave me four square of fudge which has different flavor. White for white chocolate, green for mint, yellow for lemon, and pink for strawberry (or other berries?). Tastes a bit odd, but delicious and tasty.

Eaton's Sweet Moon

Yesterday, when I was in Plaza Senayan, my sister and I stopped by Eaton Bakery. It seemed my sister wanted to buy some cakes. I saw a signboard in front of the shop... written there, Eaton has new items called Sweet Moon. I thought it was like Chinese Moon Cake and I was not interested. Until the shopkeeper told me about the Sweet Moon and he said there was tester in the cashier. There were Banana, Milk, Durian, and Taro flavor. I tried the Banana one and... it reminded me with Tokyo Banana.

I also tried the Sweet Moon Durian... yeah it was good but I'm not fan of Durian flavor. No no, I didn't only tried the tester lah, I bought one Sweet Moon. It costs Rp 10.500. But then the cashier woman said there is promotion Buy 2 get 1 Milk Sweet Moon free. So I went home with three Sweet Moons: Taro, Banana, and Milk!

Basically, Sweet Moon is chiffon cake with fillings. You can choose either Taro, Durian, Banana, and Milk flavor. The cake is very soft... and when you take the first bite until you meet the filling. Oh gosh, it is really good. I love most is the Banana one. The least is Taro. 

I love these Sweet Moons. But my mom said the flavor is only so-so. Yeah different tongue...

Yes, surely. Also buy Cheese Steam Cake, I love it. And I want to try Eaton's Rainbow Cake and Cheese Cake.

Mika at Kota Kasablanka

One of my friends said that Kota Kasablanka is my second home. I often go to Kota Kasablanka since it is located very near from my home. Only 2kms, so sometimes I take a walk after hanging out there.

Mika, one of restaurants there, has caught my eyes since I saw it at the first time. Mika, Japanese Bistro, has elegant look, a bit vintage, and very attractive. I love the furniture and the ambience. I even got first love at the first sight with Mika. Finally got the chance eating there only 2 days ago. I went there with my mom. 

I ordered Demiglace Omurice, since it is Mika's specialty, and a glass of drink called Mango Saga. My mom ordered Potato Wedges, Lychee Breeze , and for the dessert: Chocomelt cake.

So here it is!

Demi-glace Omurice

Honestly, when I opened the menu, I expected Mika has curry rice. Didn't find what I wanted, I suddenly interested with omurice. In top of the page, written: House Specialties. OK, though it is ONLY rice with omelette. But what I got! Maximum delicious tomato friend rice with demiglace sauce plus creamy omelette at the top. Very good... I love Mika's omurice!

Mango Saga

What I hate with Mika is that Mika has many interesting drink menu. Made me a bit confused what I wanted to order! At first I want to try the cocktail, sake mixed with syrup or kind of it. But then I chose Mango Saga. It is mixture of milk, vanilla ice cream, and mango. I like it very much. I thought it would be very creamy, but no, it is only slight creamy and the taste of mango not so heavy, and not too sweet. I just like it.

Chocomelt Cake

The cake maybe not so different lah with chocomelt cake in other shops. But Mika serves the chocomelt in a smaller size of cake the usual. I think it makes Mika's chocomelt more delicious than others, hahaha. The vanilla ice cream very tasty. I can see the black dot, the TRUE vanilla. And oh my God, I just couldn't describe how does it taste sih. But yeaaah, I love itttt!!!

Besides the food, I really love the service. I mean we didn't have to call the waiters many times and they're very friendly. Plus, we didn't have to wait the food for a long time. One thing that made me  a bit annoyed, there was a boy playing with the properties, cooking pans, and very noisy. Fortunately and quickly, one of the waiters gave him paper and pen so the boy switched his toy from cooking pan to drawing.

Surely, I'll go to Mika again. Soon. ^^
