I am supposed to be in Bali until the 10th but the unexpected and unfortunate earthquake occurred a few days ago in Lombok! I was in my car with some friends and we thought we were crossing the bridge or something hence the shaky car, but people started screaming and getting out of the car and that moment I knew earthquake was happening! I swear it was one of the worst earthquakes I've ever experienced: some buildings were destroyed, a lot of flights from & to Lombok were delayed/cancelled, 82 people died and the next morning I woke up to a text from my mom where she attached a screenshot of a plane ticket and I had to go back today, so I am now back safe and sound in Jakarta but my prayers are for everyone in Bali and Lombok right now.
After the Korean BBQ fiesta on my last entry, it's time to talk about my favorite Japanese shabu-shabu in town! I think it was last week after returning from Bali (and after not meeting my sister for quite some time) we went on a lunch date at the newly opened Momo Paradise Senopati! This is their second outlet following their first outlet in Pantai Indah Kapuk.

A little background about Momo Paradise: it's an all you can eat shabu-shabu restaurant originated from Shinjuku, Japan! First opened in Japan back in 1993 then followed by the expansion all over Asia at countries like Thailand, China, Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia! They're also in the USA and at the moment (and by the time this post is published), 69 is the amount of restaurants they have all over the world.
