Heart of his city
> Lifestyle Advocates presenter Mike Lewis pays tribute to all that is fascinating about Jakarta and its people
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).
