What makes Malang special to me?

There are three things that makes Malang special to him. The first being the weather in Malang. Since it is cooler than other cities in Indonesia. Second is the food since there is always corn rice in Malang, which is his favourite food. Finally, being close with family and friends. Since Malang is his hometown.

Where to find his business?

He usually sells his Pentol at Brawijaya Unveristy from 5pm till he runs out of stock. He just loves the area since there are so many hungry uni students that will buy his food.
