Sejak persiapan nikah sampe akhirnya aku dan Fred ngadain resepsi pernikahan bulan Maret lalu, aku merasa super unproductive. Mulai dari bad mood sampe akhirnya nggak bisa ngapa-ngapain karena emang nggak mood aja. I don’t know why, but wedding planning takes so much energy out of me. Ada yang merasakan hal yang sama? Hehe. Tapi yasudahlah, semuanya udah lewat. Sekarang hidup sudah kembali tenang.
Karena persiapan nikah itu lah, aku off beberapa bulan nggak terima pesanan di Bake More Cakes, karena aku merasa capek ngurusin pernikahan yang nggak kelar-kelar. Dan nggak bisa ditambah dengan capeknya bikin kue. It would have killed me, seriously. Dan setelah selesai resepsi pun, aku pingin bisa nyantai dulu honeymoon yang lama. Makanya aku belum terima orderan 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.

Finding a nice coffee shop that suits you is a struggle, especially if you’re new in town, like me. Early on my second day in Metro Manila, Philippines, I had to find somewhere to work from. Often times, we found those nice comfy coffee shops with great coffee and food but then later we found that it doesn’t provide WIFI (why?!?!). That’s sad. Then we have to find another one – and it’s a hard job, especially if you know nothing about the city and if transportation is your main problem, like here in Metro Manila.
For us, a place to work from doesn’t necessarily have to be a coffee shop, but still we prefer one. It just need to have a pretty fast and stable wifi, a comfortable seat, and a comfortable ambiance. That’s all really. Oh, plus good food.

There must be something really good about this place that I decided to blog about it. YES, it’s my favorite kwetiau ever (you know, that long thinly sliced rice cake). It’s one of those must-eat food when I’m back to my hometown, Jambi.
Finding the best kwetiau is a struggle. It’s like finding love. I’ve tried several places, both halal and non-halal. And obviously, the non-halal one has this thicker and more intense flavour. You just can’t beat the flavor of lard.

You know, recently I’ve been spending some time experimenting with moka pot to make espresso at home.
If you don’t know what that is, it’s a simple stove-top coffee maker which produces espresso with not-so-high pressure. So I guess you can’t really make latte art with this, if that’s what you’re looking for. Moka Pot is a usual coffee maker in Italian’s home, they said.

It was a hoooot hot day yesterday and I craved for something cool, something sweet and icy. I knew this place called Ice and Bean in Talang Banjar, Jambi. But never got a chance to visit it myself. I mean, I rarely crave for shaved ice, so… You won’t find me posting something dedicated to shaved ice that often.
Anyway, we later found that this place serve only food made from homemade ingredients, with no artificial flavours or colouring added. (Feeling relieved, huh?). You’ll find out more about it SOON! Keep reading 😉
