Carnis - Surabaya

Nostalgia Calvados?

Carnis Surabaya

Hari Jumat sore yang cerah, saya menghadiri undangan resto baru di daerah Panjang Jiwo Permai. Awalnya bagi saya lokasi tempat ini cukup membingungkan, tapi ternyata tidak terlalu jauh dari jembatan Nginden.

On a bright friday afternoon, I visited this new eatery on an invitation, Carnis. It's located in Panjang Jiwo Permai street. Being in an off beaten street, I was a bit confused when trying to find the place, turns out it's close to Nginden Bridge.

JW Marriott Pavilion (Engagement Banquet )

Tingjing Dengan Nuansa Berbeda

Engagement at JW Marriott

Biasanya, kalau dapat undangan acara tunangan (tinjing / tingfen) untuk kalangan peranakan Tionghoa, ekspektasi saya pasti diadakan di Restoran Cina. Acara tunangan ini, untuk kalangan Chinese memang relatif lebih kental nuansa tradisionalnya dibandingkan acara pernikahan. Untuk saya sendiri lebih nyaman dengan nuansa western sebetulnya, tapi biasanya jarang ada opsi tersebut. Kebetulan kali ini ada satu tempat alternatif dengan nuansa berbeda dan menyajikan western food, Pavilion di Hotel JW Marriott.

Engagements party for the Chinese diaspora in Indonesia are usually done in Chinese Restaurants, with plenty of traditional and ethnic flare. There hasn't been a lot of alternatives for this kind of banquet, luckily now there's a western restaurant that's suitable for the occasion. Pavilion Restaurant in JW Marriott

Pasar Jagir Wonokromo & Uji Lensa Manual

Surabaya Famous Wet Market - Captured With Vintage Leitz , Isco & Industar Manual Lens

Laughing Fish Seller - Pasar Jagir Wonokromo (Surabaya)


Akhir-akhir ini saya lagi demen mencoba berbagai lensa manual untuk dipasangkan di Sony A7. Karena kamera mirrorless tidak memakai cermin, jadi semua lensa-lensa manual / kuno bisa dipasangkan dengan mudahnya ke Sony A7, baik lensa rangefinder, Slr, hingga medium format.

Kemudahan memakai lensa vintage ini juga dinikmati pengguna kamera mirrorless lainnya seperti Panasonic, Olympus dan Fuji, tapi focal lengthnya menjadi lebih panjang 1.5 - 2x karena sensor yang digunakan lebih kecil dibandingkan seri A7 yang full frame.
Berikut beberapa hasil fotonya di Pasar Induk Surabaya ini.

My hobby of late has been about trying vintage manual lenses on my sony A7. Since mirrorless camera omits dslr mirrors, it's much easier to find suitable adapters for vintage lenses, be it rangefinder, SLR or even medium formats, all can be easily adapted to work on Sony A7.

This benefits are also felt on other mirrorless cameras, which popular brands include Panasonic, Olympus and Fuji. The focal length of the lenses are 1.5 - 2x longer on those brands since they uses smaller format sensors such as APSc and micro 4/3 in comparison to A7 series full frame sensor (35mm).
