Its not about Ben Stiller’s film… or a graveyard shift, its about spent my Friday night, by enjoyed the live music at House of Sampoerna on my last week end in Surabaya.
HOS (=House of Sampoerna) situated in old Surabaya, this is stately Dutch colonial-style compound was built in 1862 and is now a preserved historical site. Previously used as an orphanage managed by the Dutch, it was purchased in 1932 by Liem Seeng Tee, the founder of Sampoerna.
This museum offers a truly unique experience. From the story of the founding family to closely watching a real hand-roll production facility and ending up with an unforgettable experience of rolling kretek cigarette using traditional equipment. You can join the 3000 women in this plant, who can roll more than 325 sticks per hour.
