I think I have some dust in my nose, big spoon! let it marinate the tongue it's beautiful if you put a little bit of everything onto the spoon it's absolutely amazing you also have these like roasted onions in there which gives it a lot of taste um beautiful coriander carrots glass noodles rice unidentified bean sprouts um all of that good stuff it goes beautiful together and of course you can always add a little bit of ketchup in there as well which I'm gonna do mmm yeah Ayam Geprek guys so smashed chicken smashed chicken smash I'm just gonna smash it all together smash it and I'm gonna put my what looks to be very volatile red chili and I have my smashed chicken here with this rice which seems to be like a like a sticky rice really cool it's not everywhere that you get sticky rice here in Indonesia and I'm just basically gonna place it like this on my spoon and then go for it there's quite a lot of chili on here wow wow okay that's absolutely delicious it's not as hot as it looks it looked at like in the beginning that it was going to blow my face off because there's a lot of Reds there's a lot of chili flake seeds in there so I really thought I was about to get my ass kicked but this is perfect perfect level of spice chicken is amazing and tender and the rice is nice and sticky and a little bit of a chew to it so this is amazing maybe she prepared the bule version for you maybe but I got the bule version but um this is delicious this is fantastic for the price that we paid there's horses going by like horse carriages sorry I got distracted every couple of minutes there's horses going by so to give you guys an idea of exactly where we are we're actually very close to Borobudur temp temple and we're also just outside of Magelang sort of nestled between Magelang and Jogjakarta somewhere in the middle and um there's beautiful nature all around here the roads are pretty fantastic they kind of zigzag between loads of greenery as always the nature here in Indonesia genuinely one of the best countries in the world and I think even more beautiful than places like for example Switzerland if that's something that you like there's no odd comparison there's no snow in Indonesia obviously it's a tropical climate but this is absolutely beautiful they're not the largest mountain maybe they have snow there maybe I don't know anyway what I wanted to say is um that the roads towards Borobudur from Jogjakarta are also very very good very accessible even if you just drive a scooter there's two different roads that you can take one of them is an interstate and one of them is a little bit more sort of naturey of the beaten path type of Road and we are on the off the beaten path road because we didn't want to take an interstate with the 110cc scooter that's true just so you know I think what we're gonna do is explore the nature today try and bring you guys around a little bit of greenery and we might go towards spicy? We might head towards Magelang which is around half an hour 19 kilometers 19 kilometers from here and check that out and uh yeah guys today is really there is no plan we're just gonna explore and uh yeah see what happens basically best type of day food was absolutely delicious came to just 25 000 IDR that's less than two Euro for breakfast and that's the advantage guys of stepping away from the crazy tourist places and going to the more local atmosphere the people here are so friendly so happy to see us and we are so happy to enjoy the Indonesian cuisine and next up we're gonna head in the direction of Magelang maybe do a day trip around Magelang and show you guys the beautiful nature I'm sure that is surrounding that place a lot of you guys have told us to check out Magelang especially over on our social medias if you're not already following us check out our Instagram check out our Facebook we are keeping you up to date with exactly where we are um on those social medias and um yeah guys I want to say let's go check out Magelang and check out some of the amazing nature that Indonesia has to offer so where are we? we're somewhere in Magelang we just drove through the city of Magelang and now we came to an area that it's a little bit more sort of outside I want to say and we're currently looking for a market but there's also a really nice view here I believe you can see it from here oh yeah how beautiful is this absolutely gorgeous around here this is definitely somewhere that we would not have been able to visit if we didn't have our scooters so if you are thinking about exploring places like this think about getting a scooter if you're in Indonesia because wow it's gorgeous got some like kind of local stores here and very small town vibes all around here to be honest it's very very picturesque you've got Warungs you've got like a little river here as well that runs runs through here it's beautiful currently looking for a place called Pasar Bandongan or Bendongan or, one of the dongans and it's apparently Bandongan it's apparently a Market somewhere close to here and it would be nice just to have like a little look inside of a typical local Indonesian Market somewhere in magelang so far first impressions of magelang it seems seems to be a very small quaint smaller version almost of Jogjakarta very very cool though and definitely a unique looking place so it's basically what it seems to be is like a small City of development built within loads of beautiful nature rice paddy fields we drove past many many farmers and stuff like that and it's a beautiful part of Indonesia for sure but yeah I think we're gonna try and find this Pasar and see what we can see the amount of times we lost our path as well I'm just trying to get from Borobudur basically up here we we I don't know I don't know I feel like we went to the wrong turn probably 10 15 times which is probably why we look a little bit confused it is because we are confused very confused when you when you go outside of major cities in Indonesia Google Maps is not really your friend anymore and uh I have like a an airpod that I keep in my ear in one ear just so I can hear the traffic and it's telling me where to go and wow it's a little bit confusing I'm going around in circles I think I circled magelang once already but yeah we'll see if we can find the Pasar I probably look ridiculous.. haha Safety first! all right we made it to Pasar Bandongan we only got lost two additional times but we made it and we're very very curious to see what actually they have to sell here and maybe I'm Gonna Fill Up Luke's backpack with a lot of pineapple we're gonna see what's gonna happen we'll see yeah Pasar Bandongan.. in literally the middle of nowhere in magelang hello your phone, my phone, camera? yeah hello it's so much more than anticipated turn the camera this way look at how much fruits vegetable everything hello [Laughter] I don't remember the name yeah is the name oh SALAK The local dialect is a little bit different than what we usually learn [Laughter] [Laughter] chaos we're like giants yeah thank you thank you [Laughter] my favorite yeah 3000 yes hello hello hello, hello!!! crazy she's a crazy woman she's doing a sale Jengkol?! yeah! magnus!!!
