Oh well.. What can I say? 2013 has been so exciting yet challenging for me. It is The Year of Travel, if I can give an award to it. But of course I have my dark hours too.
After all, life is not always full of sunshine and smile, isn’t it? But I’ve also learned, that even if you have the most bitter cake in the world, you can always sprinkle an amount of sugar and cinnamon on it. Well at least, to make it tasted better.
I rarely go to Sukajadi or Setiabudi area since it’s pretty far from where I live. I mean, not that kind of far that will takes more than an hour to drive, but, it’s far for me since I have no private car here (and even if I do, I can’t drive) and I have to take a public transportation instead. So when Fred came by last weekend, I took advantage of him. I mean, of his car. I ask him to take me to Setiabudi Supermarket so I could FINALLY get my sea salt, yay! Going to make some more pretzels later.
Sukajadi and Setiabudi areas are quite popular among Jakartans. There are malls and dozen of restaurants, which later I found to be the main thing that attracts people to keep going there.
Jubilare Wine and Dine is one of them. We found in Tripadvisor that Jubilare is the #1 Restaurant in Bandung. That is exactly what makes Fred don’t feel like he want to miss it this time. After spending our afternoon at Lembang, we went hungry like crazy and decided to check Jubilare out. Well, it was all Fred’s idea. He even planned it before he reached Bandung.

November used to be my favorite month of the year. Since it’s always raining here in Bandung and the weather is just perfect. But it didn’t rain as much as last year. Instead, I found that this year, the rain never stops pouring on December.
So I guess December is my new favorite month. It’s even better when there are Christmas tree, the carols, the cake, the warm greetings, the weather, the idea of Santa and his gifts. I love it. I somehow thinks that they are magical.
Just exactly last weekend, Fred came by for a short visit. It’s been more than a month (or two?) since we last met. And the fact that he made a plan to visit me last weekend really excites me! There are actually so many places I’m planning to go – mostly are restaurants I never had a chance to visit. But turned out, we visited none of them. We picked random places which is not on my list and all of them turns out to be surprising.
