Having grown up as a child who watched Harry Potter, I’ve always have this special little thing about Britain. You know, the accents (oh my God, they’re sexy), the Big Ben, the Queens guard, the typical British telephone booth. I know they all sounds silly. But, hey, all of them are just too lovely for me.
It surprised me that there’s actually a restaurant in Bandung with vintage British concept. Could it be the only one? Not sure.
You know that moment, when you feel terribly hungry but also too lazy to get out of bed at the same time? Of course you do.
Well, mine happens quite often lately. The last one was last Monday and I didn’t have a morning class to go. So… I don’t know why but somehow I managed not to take a bath until 11 am and this guy named Kiki from La Creamy came over my house and brought me this cute little sampler. Thank you!
It’s funny when I realize that I barely write things about the town I’ve been living like for 3 years. I mean, Bandung is amazing. It’s one of the most popular tourist site in West Java, Indonesia. And I’ve been to a lot of interesting places. How come I didn’t write anything about it?
Well, the thing is… when I live here, I don’t feel like I’m currently travelling. I mean, I feel like I just simply living my normal university life.
Last Friday, Fred came by for a short visit. The only reason he did was only because of the so called Braga Festival 2013, I guess. But then… since the festival itself is a bit disappointing, we decided to give our selves a nice dinner.
I’ve heard so many people mentioning Origin House and Kitchen as one of the must-visit bistro in Bandung. They all were like : “You should go! It has a great ambiance and good food too!” or “What? You never went to Origin before? You must be kidding. It’s one of my favorite.”
They somehow took the curiosity out of me, in so many ways. And so we went.
When it comes to chilies and peppers, some people like it a lot, like they could just swallow all those spicy ingredients, while some people like it a little and some avoid it. I was raised in a small town in Sumatra island where spicy foods are widely spread. My tongue is somehow used to taste any kind of spicy ingredients.
It’s funny that since I moved out to Bali in June 2013, I haven’t found any spicy foods that really fits my taste. I mean, there are chillies but it doesn’t ‘kick’ me. You know?
