Visiting a tofu factory in Indonesia

This is how tofu is produced in Indonesia. From importing the doy beans to forming a tofu block. We learned about the production process in a factory in Magelang Indonesia.

Do you like tofu?

You might ask yourself what is tofu made from? We have been curious too and decided to visit a local tofu factory. We initially traveled to the area of Magelang to visit the Borobodur temple but afterwards we decided to learn more about the local economy. This is how they produce the tofu in Indonesia. They showed us the whole process, from importing the soy beans to pressing the blocks and selling it to the market. Some machines are interestingly improvised and some processes are well thought out. It was a very interesting visit, to see how the soy beans goes through the different process until it becomes a well shaped tofu block.

soy beans

Soy beans imported from the US. They explained us that there is not enough production capacity to get enough soy beans from the local farmers.

tofu oven

the oven is about to be heated. The pan on top of the oven is to simultaneously heat up the water and cool down the escaping heat, to protect the roof from burning.

tofu sieve

The sieve is prepared. The wooden part of the sieve is hand made and serves its purpose perfectly.

soy bean squeezer

The soy beans have been in water for more than 4 hours. The soaked up soy beans are thrown in to this squeezer to get the liquid soy “milk” out of the beans.

Yoga with a view

A house on the hillls of Lombok with the most impressive Yoga studio! Woke up early and drove all the way up to the Ashtari Yoga studio. It is a platform with a view of Lombok’s coast line. The rising sun was shining on this beautiful landscape and illuminated the studio with warm bright morning light.

The Canggu Vlog

Canggu is the absolute hipster town of Bali. Custom bikes, tattoos, surf, yoga and of course hip cafes, restaurants and bars. This is what we experienced a week long and we loved it!

The Vlog

The Tanjung Aan Beach is the most beautiful beach on Lombok they say. It was our mission to check this spot out. Relaxing by the beach with coconut water and beach chair occupation. Afterwards we climbed up the Merese Hills right besides Tanjung Aan and operated the drone to get the birds eye view on this perfect spot! Check out this little adventure and write a comment down here =)

Hotel Roomtour at Amata Borobodur

Feeling like tony montana in this bathrobe.
Fun fact, i only worn this once... for the gram

check out the hotel here.

At the same day we left Lombok and flew right into Yogyakarta in Indonesia, also called Jogjakarta. Negotiated a fair taxi price and drove to the luxury Amata Borobodur Resort. Its a hotel close to the famous Borobodur buddhist temple. This temple was the main reason why we traveled to this place. But besides following our plans we had some time left to enjoy this beautiful resort. We knew it will be a nice stay but the interior of our room, the restaurant and pool area were really overwhelming. I can highly recommend to visit the Borobodur and stay in this resort.
