Thought of the day-“My definition of a good hotel is a place I’d stay at.”-Robert De Niro

Lounging, even for a while @Skybar on the 33rd Floor of Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur, was indeed one great moment, having that breathtaking view of KLCC Twin Tower. We can do this every single day, we said to ourselves! Being frequent travelers and miles chaser(s), we have accumulated enough points in the Golden Circle Membership Program (Link), enabling us to redeem free nights at any Shangri-La’s, Jen and Traders Hotel worldwide. We’re curious about what’s inside Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur and so we came in as their guests, staying for 2 nights ; one room for each of us.

Previously, we wrote about our first time experience drinking Jamu. This time around, we will reveal what we both thought about Rawon, an Indonesian dish originated from Surabaya. Initially, we were not sure what to expect. We’ve read about it, seen it on TV, hearing people talked about it but we yet to taste it until we were at Jamoo, Shangri-La Hotel Surabaya.

“Jamu asal Indonesia tidak ada tandingannya di dunia, hanya saja rasa kepemilikan dan kebangsaan bangsa Indonesia sendiri masih sangat rendah terhadap jamu tradisional.”-Jaya Suprana

There were so many memorable experience when we visited Surabaya, Indonesia. One of those was when we were given the opportunity to sample some of the finest Jamu served at Jamoo, Shangri-La Hotel Surabaya. This particular hotel was our residence in Surabaya for 5 days and 4 nights. It was during lunch at Jamoo that we saw one lady wearing Indonesian Kebaya and carrying a basket (gendongan) with 4 bottles inside it. We were later told that she is the famous ‘Ibu Jamu Gendong‘. Her name is Ibu Lilik Mudjiati. Together with her colleague (Ibu Yayuk), they take turns in making and serving Jamu to patrons opting to have Buffet Lunch at Jamoo. While we do have another great coverage for Jamoo, we felt it is appropriate to highlight this particular experience, drinking that Jamu, for the first time ever! It’s indeed great herbal drink, healing and refreshing!
