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.
As another year winds up, I take a look back at the past 12 months I’ve passed. And looking back, there’s nothing more I could feel beside being grateful. I just can’t believe that I came across this time faster. It’s way faster than I thought, indeed. But in so many ways, 2014 has been one of my best year. It was so full of challenges, laughter, tears, stress, works, struggles, and surprises. It got its ups and downs. But it was a big sweet one.
Now here we are at the very end of 2014. So here’s a little look back at the amazing year!
Let’s be grateful, as we’ve just lived one year more.
I bet everyone knows what Paris Van Java is. Yes, it’s the hippest semi-outdoor mall in the city, the place people usually go out with a bunch of friends or family, either for dining out, watching a movie, or just walking around shopping.
Often times, I found it confusing to find a good place for dining in Paris Van Java. And lucky me, just a while ago, me and @makanpakereceh were invited by JAVANA BISTRO for a late lunch / early dinner. I never went to JAVANA BISTRO before since I thought it’s just some random expensive restaurant, but turned out, I was totally wrong. You’ll find out why later 😉Lanjutkan membaca “Javana Bistro, Bandung”
Every city has that one bakery people have been going since a loooong time ago. In this case, Bandung has Bawean Bakery.
It was first established in 1946 and was called “Sweet Heart”. What a name…. But then, as soon as they moved to Jalan Bawean 4, they changed the name to “Bawean Bakery”, in line with its location. Now that’s better! Lanjutkan membaca “Bonjour Paris! by Bawean Bakery”
It was an unusual Saturday morning for me. I woke up early at 6, took a quick shower, brewed my coffee, and off I went to Agritektur office at Jl. Mataram, Bandung. I’ve been waiting for that particular day for sooo long. Yes, it’s the ‘CAMP ON FARM’ day!
As you can guess from the name of the event, we were having a camp at Dago Dairy Farm that day. It’s a lovely local farm at the north side of Bandung, in Buniwangi Wetan area.
Bandung is one of the most stunning and unique city in Indonesia. I fell in love with the panoramic views of the mountains this city has to offer the moment I moved here. Not to mention the fresh air and the cool breeze! Many even said Bandung shares the similar atmosphere with European cities. You know, there are many luxurious hotels, restaurants, and cafe were opened. PLUS the old buildings here were designed by Dutch architects during the Dutch colonization. Hence, Bandung is known as Parijs van Java (the Paris of Java). One of my favorite activity here in Bandung is dining at a place which offers great ambiance and view, and the most important thing, GREAT FOOD! It’s a good thing that The Restaurant at Padma Hotel offers both.Lanjutkan membaca “Friday Night Seafood Buffet at Padma Hotel Bandung”
Quick question : “How much time does one usually need to make an ice cream?”
Two hour? Three hour? Perhaps more.
But this technique will only take you about 5 minutes until you can enjoy your lovey dovey ice cream. No ice, no electric ice cream maker, no fridge, no waiting time. All you need is a tiny amount liquid nitrogen (yes, you heard me) and some other ingredients, and you’re ready to go.
Living in a town with as many dining options as Bandung makes it impossible for me to keep up with what’s hip and happening. You know, Bandung’s culinary business is constantly growing as new restaurants come and go. Some make a huge success, some are not lucky enough.
This year, DUSUN BAMBU made it to the most talked about place in Bandung. It’s like, everyone is going to there. I saw my friends pictures on Instagram, Facebook, and even Path. Some of them even came from Jakarta. And then I was like : “Why is everyone going? What’s in there?”
