Java Jamboree: A Drinking Spree

Walking from Kraton to Kraton under the hot Indonesian sun was not an easy feat even when we had umbrellas to protect our heads from the scorching sun. Upon leaving Kraton Puro Mangkunegaran, we were glad then to come across an eating shop called Malioboro. The name, Malioboro, seemed to have been stripped from Malsboro, the brand of cigarettes famed for billboard advertisements and the Malsboro Man but nay, we were at Malioboro not for a smoke but for a drink. The shop offers a variety of fruit juices and we ordered every type available, from star fruit juices, water melon juices, carrot juices to even durian juices, the last was a surprise and a novelty as it is not available in Malaysia. We shared the drinks and each of us had had the opportunity to try out each of the juices. They were all thick, creamy and indeed heavenly! My friends and I did have a lot of fun out of all those juices! That was a hell of a drinking spree!


Can you spot the fun drinks and identify which one is a durian juice?

Wonder how the durian one taste like, especially when you burp!!! I have always been enthralled by the islands of Indonesia but cowed by the security there. Is it safe to travel in Indonesia?

Taste like durian la but thank goodness, no burping. I suppose it is always a risk traveling there or anywhere. Our visit there is before their 'sweeping out Malaysian' antics but at the bird market, we did have a nasty experience. But then again, back home, for no apparent reason, a friend got slashed at his doorstep even as he was coming home from work.

footiam, cannot agree more with you. We also had a nasty racist experience at Gold Coast Australia. Evidently, the Aussie mistook us for migrants. LOL. Well, the age of innocence in travelling is over since 911. We cannot be fully protected but have to be wise.Just brave ourselves and face it.

All of us will have to go somehow; it's just a matter of how; why worry?
