Udah pada tau Rumah Guguk di Bandung belum? Rumah Guguk itu apa yah, hmm, petshop sih sebenarnya, tapi ada tamannya, kolam renangnya, tempat grooming, dll. Kamu juga bisa beli anjing disini. Petshop plus plus lah, istilahnya. Hehe.
Sebenarnya aku udah lama banget pingin ke Rumah Guguk, tapi baru kesampean bulan lalu. Karena sejak aku lulus kuliah tahun 2014 lalu kan aku ngak tinggal di Bandung lagi tuh. Nah, sejak itu aku jarang banget ke Bandung. Paling juga satu dua kali, waktu ada acara nikahan temen.
This was one the place I’ve been wanting to go for so long. Udah lama banget aku pingin kesini karena ngeliat foto-foto teman-teman dan adik aku di Instagram. Dari foto, keliatan cantik banget tempatnya. Settingannya seperti di Eropa! (Walau aku belum pernah ke Eropa sebelumnya sih, jadi ngak tau pasti juga hehe).
Ohya, sebelum aku cerita lebih lanjut tentang Farm House, aku mau ngasih tau nih kalo aku lagi nyobain nulis blog pake Bahasa Indonesia. Aku tau beberapa orang kurang setuju karena nanti aku jadi ga bisa latihan bahasa inggris, kan toh sehari2 aku ngomong pake Bahasa Indonesia. Ya, bener sih. Aku juga ngerasa nulis itu bantu banget untuk latihan. Tapi….ya, kita coba aja yah dulu 😉
It’s been 3 years since I had my first staycation at Hilton Bandung together with my #BandungFoodies friends. I remembered how excited I was when we all gathered in the lobby before the staycation begins LOL. This year, I had another staycation with Fred, who’s now my husband.
So here’s the story.
It was late at night, around 10 pm, when we arrived in Bandung. We were quite tired due to the crazy traffic in Jakarta and Bekasi area, and we haven’t had any dinner before. We went searching for some good food around Hilton area and thought fried rice would be just great.
Long before our wedding day, we’ve been planning for our short honeymoon trip to Australia before the real honeymoon (or should I say honey-year?) starts on 2018.
So the plan is, we’ll go to Darwin and do a road trip from there all the way to Sydney together with Adam & Susan. Then we’ll spend a couple of days in Sydney before we go back to Indonesia. Now we’re still waiting for our tourist visa application which hopefully will be issued next week.
It’s been two years since I left Bandung and I couldn’t be more than happy to be back! It was just a short 2 days vacation. And I had the pleasure to stay for 2 nights at Sheraton Bandung and experience all of their services including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even a spa.
After all of those months of baking and decorating cake, I found staying here was like a gift, more like a treat, really. I don’t have to do the dishes, I don’t have to deal with my customers. All I did was just relax and enjoy myself.
To be honest, I know nothing about coffee brewing except pouring hot water to my ground coffee. That’s what I do every morning because it is practically the easiest one. Besides, I have no fancy tools or even machine with me. Just a mug and a spoon to stir. But you know, there seem to be some new coffee brewing tools available in store lately. Most of them are very affordable, compared to espresso machine, and easy to use!
I never tried using one until I went to MG&Co weeks ago to attend their Manual Coffee Brewing Workshop.
It’s soooo good to finally have Korean food again! I feel like it’s been a long time since I had it at Bo Shin Myeong Ga, Jakarta several months ago. And I kinda missed it. This time, I decided to try another venue : Chung Gi Wa, in Bandung. I’ve heard so much about this place but haven’t got the chance to visit until last month. And you know what? They told me that they’re going to have open another branch probably next month (or next year?). I’m not sure.
If you’ve been living in Bandung for quite sometime, I’m sure you need no more introduction about this place. It’s Dapur Dahapati, everyone! You might already know, but in case you haven’t, this place is known to be the one serving the best oxtail soup in Bandung. I actually have no other places to compare with, so let’s just say it’s indeed the best, for now, though I found a lack of consistency in their cooking process.
