fash­ion­able.

Then there is Lal De Silva whom Lewis once worked with be­fore. De Silva was a pas­try chef at a renowned ho­tel be­fore quit­ting and start­ing his own lit­tle cake shop.

Eight years later, he has 20 out­lets, his own fac­tory and is pres­i­dent of the Lam­borgh­ini club. The in­ter­view was done in De Silva’s Lam­borgh­ini!

Lewis took great pride in not mak­ing a stan­dard travel show, liven­ing things up with in­ter­est­ing in­ter­views.

He also kept the au­di­ence en­ter­tained by do­ing things such as get­ting ‘elec­tro­cuted’ while get­ting a spe­cial spa treat­ment.

Lewis hopes there is a sea­son three, and that he is in­vited back.

“I am hop­ing to work more with LI be­cause it re­ally is my pas­sion to go places and ex­pose what is fun and funky.”

Lewis has his own restau­rant called Mid­town in Jakarta, which was fea­tured heav­ily in the show. Why?

“Be­cause I can,” he said.

Where does he find the time to do so many things? “To be hon­est, I don’t con­sider [it] work at all. These are things I wake up to, and love do­ing. I am just glad I have the en­ergy to keep do­ing them.” Catch Lewis on Life­style Ad­vo­cates: In­done­sia this Sun­day at 7.30pm on LI (Astro chan­nel 728).
