This morning, we ate breakfast at Alor Street. There’s chinese restaurant which serve breakfast. We ate poridge and noodle. And buy some Cahkwe / Fried Breadstick / 油条 (you tiao). I think there’s nothing special with the food, just usual breakfast.
Every Chinese Year, my big family always gathering together to celebrate it. Usually, we celebrate twice, Chinese New Year Eve and Chinese New Year. Just like New year 1st January.
In Chinese New Year Eve, my mom and aunty cook a lot of food. We gathering and eat reunion dinner before Chinese New Year. It is also traditional for every family to thoroughly cleanse the house, in order to sweep away any ill-fortune and to make way for good incoming luck. Windows and doors will be decorated with red colour paper-cuts and couplets with popular themes of “good fortune” or “happiness”, “wealth”, and “longevity.” Other activities include lighting firecrackers and giving money in red paper envelopes.
And when the Chinese New Year come, young people give New Year greetings for elder. We ussually wear red clothes.
Many restaurant in Semarang, which actually I’m not too familiar. Everytime I went to Semarang, mostly I ate at the Department Store’s food court. This time, I try the most crowded restaurant, Kedai Beringin.
Kedai Beringin located at Jalan Beringin I/9 Semarang 50132. (Phone 62-24-3554292).
I ordered Nasi Hainan Campur, which the waitress said, it’s the favourite dishes in there. But so far, the food is not bad. And the price also not too expensive. You can find Indonesian dishes or oriental dishes in here.
