Photo Essay : JAPAN

In early March last year, when the winter has faded out but yet spring hasn’t show its face, I spent several weeks living in Japan. It was my first time stepping my own feet in the country and no doubt, I was beyond excited given the fact that I could experience a new culture in another part of the world.

I did observe things during my stay. I watched how people interact with each other, how they behave, how they do things.

This post is not going to be a travel guide or a food review. It’s more like a photo essay, when I put my photos from Japan here with a short description for each one. Just simply because…

I want you… to see what I saw.

Lunch Buffet at Sheraton Bandung

You know that moment when you live in a highland area and missing the view and the feel of summer at the exotic island? That’s exactly what I’ve been feeling recently! I can’t believe it’s been over a year since my stay in Bali last year and how I MISS IT SO MUCH until just last weekend, I went to Sheraton Hotel & Towers Bandung for a lunch.

I thought it’s just another luxurious 5-star hotel with a high building, clean neat comfy rooms and spacious lobby with sparkling lighting, because you know, from outside, the hotel look just like a normal building. I mean, it’s white building, with some fountains and green freshly cut grass around the path way. But turned out, I was wrong!  Baca lebih lanjut

Fluffy Says Cakery, Bandung Online Cake Shop

I can’t remember the first time I got hooked with dessert even though I try hard to. It might be at the second year of uni, I guess. I tried so many kinds of desserts I never had in my hometown back then.

One problem I usually find when buying myself some desserts home is the fact that desserts are so fucking hard to carry!
I mean, you’ve got to be VERY GENTLE to them or else they might not look pretty the moment you got home. Oh of course if you own a car, no problem will come to you. But for someone who rely on public transportation like me? uh uh. Not a good idea. Baca lebih lanjut

Signature Cruise at Ha Long Bay

I’ve never imagined myself to be on a cruise. The only place I knew people usually do cruising is in Caribbean – which I believe is quite far from here. I was kinda surprise they have it here in South East Asia! Yes, we did our first cruise at Ha Long Bay, Vietnam. It’s around 3 hours drive from Hanoi – the capital city of Vietnam.

We booked a 2D1N cruise at Signature Cruise. Well, Fred did it. He took care of all of our tickets, hotels, and many other things. He’s also the one who read the map while we’re walking exploring the city (Hanoi and Saigon). All I’ve got to do is wear my jacket and my shoes since it’s slightly cold there in January. Then I’m ready to go.

I am Truly Grateful

Everyone has a story. A story that makes them who they are today. This is mine…

I was raised in a small city, where everyone knows one another’s families. And if you do something disgraceful, we all will notice and talk about it. There’s definitely a lot of social pressure to keep your nose clean, as everybody knew your family and will talk about it. Once one person finds out, the rest of the town will know within minutes. But that’s part of the community. And this is too why, I guess, the bullied kids will forever be bullied until they get themselves out of the town, and change. A lot of my friends did changed after attending university in another town. They even have a lot of new good friends now – which is good for me.

Bandung Street Food : Sate Maulana Yusuf

You know what? Bandung is quite popular for its large variety of foods. I guess that’s the reason people keep coming back to Bandung on weekend – besides the perfect weather. It’s well known for its outdoor fine dining due to its pleasant climate in the noon. And also, for its street foods.

I’m soooo glad I got a chance to attend a university in Bandung. It’s like opening a chance for me to explore the city even more! So I guess moving out to Bandung has made me who I am today. A girl who loves traveling and taking pictures, well yeah, and eating. I wrote about Bandung in One Day days ago, and I’m thinking about writing another one.

Bandung in One Day

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.
