missbunny’s cooking time 1 : Gyūdon 牛丼

Hello! ♡

Back with me! Right now actually I’m enjoying my (super late) summer holiday here in Indonesia. I guess it’s autumn already actually in Japan, but anyway, this summer holiday is just full of food~

I guess I will write some new restaurant review as well later on.

However, today I will share a recipe in this blog! Well not only the recipe! Actually I am making my first…. COOKING VIDEO! Yay!



*so, yes, I like cooking and it’s actually really fun to share how to cook delicious food in a simple way*


My first time is a very easy and simple Japanese food called… Gyūdon (牛丼), beef over rice bowl. This is a very famous Japanese food, if you are living in Indonesia maybe you can easily find this food in Yoshinoya. But since this food is simple but very fulfilling and delicious, why don’t we try to make it by myself? *wink



SO LET’S GET STARTED!! (thanks Mom for lending the kitchen, lol)


This is the video…



  • Sliced beef
  • 1 small onion (chopped)
  • Dashi (fish broth) : you can make it by boiling 120 mL of water with dashi no moto powder
  • Japanese soy sauce (Kikkoman)
  • 2 tbsp of sugar
  • Green onion/leek (chopped)



  • Brings dashi mixture to boil over medium heat and add Kikkoman and sugar
  • Soften the onion by putting it inside the dashi soup mixture, cover the lid while waiting to prevent evaporation of the soup
  • Once it’s soften, put sliced beef one by one
  • Make sure everything is evenly cooked
  • Serve over warm rice with chopped leek and warm miso soup!


Simple isn’t it? Anyway, I hope that I can be consistent in making this cooking video!



With loads of love ♡

My Indonesia Spring Holiday : My Food Diary <3

Hello everyone! How are you?

I hope that you’re all having a good Saturday night! After a week full of sakura beauty, lately it has been a bit cold in Yokohama and its surroundings (and it even snowed one day!). But I believe, the real spring will come soon!

So i got a chance to go back to Bandung, Indonesia, my lovely hometown for 3 weeks! And in this post I will tell about my food diary during my spring holiday! So, if you go to Bandung someday, you’ll already have some food reference!

To be honest, I’m not good at cooking Indonesian food. So while I was in Indonesia, I had a feast!

#1 Indonesian Fried Rice (Nasi Goreng) and Oxtail Soup (Sup Buntut) from Le Meridien Jakarta

The characteristic of a Padang Restaurant is its variety of cuisine with its super rich taste! The most typical one would be Rendang (spicy meat dish), and Ayam Pop (Padang style juicy fried chicken). And the waiters in Padang Restaurant are capable of carrying so many plates on their hand!

#3 Chicken Porridge, Bubur Ayam Kepatihan

#4 Kedai Lingling : Ramen Bar and Dessert

Kedai Ling Ling Dishes!

Kedai Ling Ling Dishes!

Although I’m living in Japan, I still love Kedai Lingling so much! It was originally a small Takoyaki Bar but now becoming sort of like a big restaurant. I really love Kedai Lingling’s Ramen, because it was so spicy and milky as well! Also, please don’t forget to taste its dessert menu~ It’s a combination of Japanese and Taiwanese dessert.

#5 Sundanese Food : Rumah Makan Sambel Hejo, Jalan Natuna Bandung

Fried Chicken and everything yummy!

Fried Chicken and everything yummy!

This is one of my most favorite Sundanese cuisine. The typical menu consist of fried chicken, fried tofu and tempeh, steamed tofu, steamed prawn (pepes tahu and pepes udang), and Sambel Hejo. Sambel means Chilli Sauce, and Hejo means green, because the signature Chilli Sauce used in this restaurant is made from hot green chilli. Another signature dish of Sambel Hejo is Cimplung, deep fried steamed cassava. Taste heavenly!

#6 Tahu Goreng Seuhah, Hot Fried Tofu from Java Preanger Coffee House

Tahu Goreng Seuhah

Tahu Goreng Seuhah

Tahu Goreng means Fried Tofu, and Seuhah is a Indonesian (or mainly Sundanese) saying when  when you’re eating something too hot and spicy. The tofu was battered with flour and stir fried with red chilli and other ingredients. Unfortunately, you will not be able to find this dishes again because the cafe is closing down. But, Tahu Goreng Seuhah will always be my favorite snack ever! 😦

#7 Kopi Scooter, a touch of Singaporean / Malaysian Food in town

Kwetiaw Goreng Ayam and Milo Dinosaurus!

You can enjoy this special meatball with Es Selalu Dipesan which actually is a crushed ice with coconut milk, condensed milk, sliced of breads, and sliced coconut!

#13 Batagor : Bakso Tahu Goreng



Batagor stands for Bakso Tahu Goreng and it is a fried fish dumplings and fried tofu dumplings served with peanut sauce and sweet soy sauce.

Spring 2015 : Hanami

Hello everyone!

It has been so long since my last post! Now it’s already April and Sakura season has almost ended here in Tokyo, Yokohama and its surrounding. Since i came back to Japan from my spring holiday in the right timing, this year I could enjoy the beauty of Sakura in Tokyo! So, let me share you my story about this year Hanami (Japanese tradition of flower viewing experience!

26 March 2015 – Ueno Park

Access : JR Ueno Station, ~3 minutes walk

Entrance fee : Free

This spot is really popular because they have numerous sakura trees lined up where you can do hanami just underneath. Spaces are already provided and partitioned, according to the rules you can use it for about 1 hour. Not only you can do Hanami here, but you can also visit many museum, Ueno Zoo, and many temples. You can also enjoy local delicacies by buying snacks from food stalls (Takoyaki, Okonomiyaki, Grilled Corn, etc.)

I went there when the Sakura had not bloomed 100% yet but the place was already quite full. So please expect it to be really crowded during Sakura full bloom. P.S : try the Sakura Cake from Starbucks located nearby, it’s so delicious!

27 March 2015 – Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden

Access : Tokyo Metro Shinjuku Sanchome Station (Shinjuku Gate) ~5 mins walk, Tokyo Metro Shinjuku Gyoenmae Station (Okido Gate) ~ 5 mins walk

Entrance fee : 200 Yen for Adults, 150 Yen for Group Admission

One of the most popular hanami spot in Tokyo due to its vast lawn, selections of park, and selections of beautiful sakura trees. Beware! The park is very huge! Do take the map and take a look carefully on where the sakura trees are located. Generally sakura trees are clustered around English Landscape Garden (nearer to Okido Gate). There are also some individual trees located in French Formal Garden and Japanese Traditional Garden.

During the time i went there it was pretty early so only some sakura trees had bloomed. We had the chance to watch some early blooming Sakura : Yokohama Hizekura (bright pink one), Youkou Sakura (light pink), and Ooshima Koshioyama Zakura (white)

29 April 2015 – Tama Plaza

Access : just outside Tama Plaza Station of Den-en-Toshi-Line

Entrance fee : Free

There is a street lined with sakura trees just outside Tama Plaza Station and it’s quite beautiful.


Sakura trees lined beyond the busy neighbourhood

31 April 2015 – Tokyo Institute of Technology Suzukakedai Campus

Access : Den-en-Toshi Line Suzukakedai Station (5 mins walk)

Campus is (surprisingly) lined with beautiful sakura trees! The sakura trees are just everywhere! It lined up beautifully on the main intersection, it grew also in the canteen area (and there were dozens of it), and also it scattered in some other spot, like near J1 Building.

3 April 2015 – Naka Meguro River Side

Access : Tokyu Toyoko Line Naka Meguro Station, Main Exit (~3 mins walk)

Who said that sakura can only be viewed during daytime? Night time sakura viewing is called Yozakura (夜桜)and it is as popular as the regular hanami! The several meter line of sakura trees were lit up during Naka Meguro Festival! It created such a spectacular and beautiful view. You can also enjoy the atmosphere by eating some locally sold Yakitori, and Grilled Sausage. I went here with Kak Ay, my former band friend, and also met new friends there! 🙂

みんな!(my first night Hanami 夜桜)

4 April 2015 – Shinjuku Gyoen

I visited Shinjuku Gyoen once more and this time with PPI Tokodai (Tokyo Tech Indonesian Student Association). At this time, it was the first weekend after the full bloom, so the park was packed with people! But still the park was huge, it was still spacious! The sakura was sort of falling into the ground, creating a lush beautiful pink carpet on the grass and also on the lake! I did a little photoshoot with Hilda and explore the park more than my last time.


Sakura trees falling into the lake!

We didn’t only get beautiful sakura pictures but also our own picture ! (happy, thank you Hilda)

After that, we did the hanami! The activities were fun from Potluck, games and cooking competition. Today, i had breaded chicken cutlet and tamagoyaki with sesame-mayo dressing, i also had green salad with olive-sesame dressing I tried to join the cooking competition and got a takoyaki maker as a prize. Happy!

Tea Time Review : HARBS Coffee & Cake

Hello everyone!

It’s saturday and it’s time to enjoy weekend! So today because i got a bit too tired, i only go to Futakotamagawa alone. I really do love me-time and usually i just ended up in a cake shop, like today. At first I really wanted to go to TWG but i got too lazy to go to Jiyugaoka and suddenly I came across a TWG-looking shop with really mouth-watering large cakes in their display at the second floor of Dogwood Plaza just outside Futakotamagawa Station.

I would probably came across a new fancy cake shop or restaurant every week (it’s my stress coping mechanism) so I guess better than enjoying it alone, from now on i will write a review about each cake shop or restaurant that i’ve visited!



Location : 2F Dogwood Plaza, Futakotamagawa, just outside Futakotamagawa Station Denentoshi Line

Seatings : limited, around 15 tables

Price : 1500-2000 Yen for a set of cake and drink

HARBS Coffee & Cake

From the outside, the cafe looked nice and also there were many people queueing to eat there. It was Saturday afternoon and the place itself was also small, i had to wait around 20 minutes to be seated.

KARBS Cake Menu

So the price of each slice of cake is approximately 700 Yen-ish it all looked so yummy! From rare cheese cake, fresh fruit cake, chocolate cake, and so on. For the drinks (assorted kind of teas, herb teas, milk teas, coffees) where you will get one pot of drink is also around 700 Yen-ish. And please note that they don’t allow you to order only cake you have to also purchase one drink. So a set of cake and drink here for one person will cost approximately 1500 Yen-ish.

I also took some photos of the restaurant interior while waiting, as i have told you, it’s a bit like TWG.

IMG_0965 IMG_0963

Today, I tried Black and White Chocolate Cake and Hot Royal Milk Tea.


Royal Milk Tea? Really decent and the milk itself taste a bit sweet so i could omit adding granulated sugar to the tea. What else to say? The pot is really cute!




Black and White Chocolate Cake? What can i say! It’s really heavenly!

The size of cake is really big, it took me about 30 minutes to finish (please note that I’m such a sweet food lover). The cake is really fluffy, soft and creamy PLUS there are loads of carved white chocolate and dark chocolate on top of it. Really really delicious!

What else? The freshness! Yes the cake tasted really fresh and when i looked up at their website, they mentioned that they commit to make fresh cake each day, from 1981. So that’s the secret of this 33 years old cake shop! 🙂


So I rate this cafe as 5 stars!! You should try to visit it, it’s a bit expensive but it’s really delicious~ and i can’t wait for the spring to come, since they’re going to sell their Sakura Cake *drooling


Have a good weekend, everyone.


Loads of Love

Sugar, Cream, and Everything Sweet

Hello, all! Ready for something sugary? Creamy and nice?


Yes, I have opened my online cake shop, @cupcupmeal again! Since now I had practically nothing truly serious to do, so why not doing my passion?


We still open pre-order and we also supply cupcake regularly to @JavaPreanger, Java Preanger Coffee House, Jalan Cisangkuy no 68. It’s a relatively new café and it has excellent coffee and also excellent Tahu Seuhah as well 😀 But all I can say is that, the coffee matches really well with a cupcake! ❤

We’re providing only a small stock of cupcake, being renewed every 3 or 4 days to ensure the freshness.



For pre-order? We still have our signature menu 😀

We have assorted cupcakes, with a quite lengthy flavor list and all iced with our own homemade buttercream, 100% real buttercream. We have basic flavors like vanilla, vanilla chocolate chip, chocolate, chocolate choco chip, dark mocha, and coffee. In a need for something more fruity and fresh? We have our raspberry, strawberry, lemon, orange, and blueberry cupcake! 😀


We also have Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcake, Red Velvet Cupcake and Matcha cupcake, all with different pricing. If you’re curious about the price and more picture you can just go here.


Red velvet



In addition to that all, we also have round cake, a petite one, ranging from vanilla strawberry buttercream,  vanilla chocolate glazed, matcha, and red velvet 😀 We also have Rainbow Cake 😀 For the prices of cake you can also go here.
