Import ice cubes from Boston to Indonesia continued for 25 years until 1870. Afterwards, an ethnic Chinese named Kwa Wan Hong opened the first factory of ice cubes in Indonesia in Semarang, Central Java.

He eventually became a pioneer of opening similar efforts in various areas, such as Pekalongan, Surabaya, and Batavia.

Not to mention the expensive items, ice cubes now so something customarily consumed daily. The majority of people can even make their own ice cubes at home.
