Dago Pakar

I went here yesterday...

Another great place in Bandung, just (may be) 20 minutes from Factory outlets and 10 minutes from Sheraton Hotels... I was there with my kids, my sister, my mom and my grandma... we had a picnic together... :-) Clay and Cliff rode a horse together (only Rp.5000,- less than 1$Sin?) And we can visit Goa Jepang (Japanese Cave). This cave was built by Japanese when they ruled Indonesia, in the world war 2.


We only need 2 hours, went from home, enjoy the forest and went back home! Just nice!
Really dark, can't see anything. We can rent the torch (Rp. 3000,-) and be guided into the cave for some locals there... But we didn't get into the cave, the children are scared of darkness..:-)

Bandung Culinaire

Short Notice
After this post, I will write about mini series episode 5 and you can chup the post ok? Just be patient, I need some time to write. I also need your help, I want to post the audio file... how to do that? I have an audio file for you to hear... please help me, where can I upload the audio file and post it here?

Ok, let's talk about FOOD!
One fine day, 3 young women (me, my sis and my auntie) asked our grandma and her sister to have a lunch together... and here is our food... yum yum yum... Imagine 5 ladies have a Sundanese Party... waaaa so delicious! We, Bandung people, are Sundanese ethnic... we speak Sundanese as well, besides Indonesian. Just like I told Angeles and LB at the previous comment section, we said 'Mangga...' = please/help your self. 'Sit down please...=Mangga calik.'

Mangga in Indonesia means mango as well... and in Sundanese, mangga is called buah. Buah in Indonesia means fruits.. hehehe... Papaya in Indonesia is pepaya, while in Sundanese is gedang and gedang in Javanese is banana.. confuse already? Ok, let's see the food now!


Ah, we have fried gurame, grilled gurame, and fried chicken... you see the Liwet Rice? It's similar with nasi lemak as it was cooked in coconut gravy, but Liwet Rice has chillies, eggs, salty fish, bean sprouts, served in a jar (see the picture above and spy the Nasi Liwet). You have to try this food when you visit Bandung! The Mango Sambal is sluuuuuuuuuurp....!! It's sour, crunchy, a little bit salty and spicy of course.. perfect!


Do you know Sayur Asem? It's also freshy and yummy... red beans, green 'pumpkin', corn, long beans, added with palm sugar and asam (what is asam fruit in English?) it is not tangerine and I can't find the word! Gepuk is delicious as well.. a beef.. and karedok is like a raw gado gado... in peanut sauce.. see that belachan sambal? Sambal terasi!! Ya! Now I am really hungry!

My hubby protests that I should present the pictures in the same 'style' hahaha.. I said I am not that consistence... I made it spontaneously.. and now, I am too lazy to edit the pictures below.. hahaha... I am sorry!

Yesterday I had lunch with my mum and Cliff at The Valley. This is the restaurant I recommended to Farah before. The restaurant with great foods and beautiful views, night or day. The night view as seen on previous post, though it was taken from different restaurant, but it is similar view as the restaurants are near. The Valley is more expensive but the food is more delicious.... I took some pictures using my Sony Ericsson K800i, here is the menu... the price range is around Rp.35.000 - 120.000... average more than Rp.50.000,-


and the table...

and this is dori teriyaki set menu, we order this and 3 bowls of rice... *grin* for me, my mom and cliff... Rp. 64.500 plus 21% tax and service... So this set + 2 bowls of rice cost me about Rp.84.000,-

Look at the sushi... salmon I don't like raw meat too much so I gave them all to Clifford.. hehehe.. child need salmon for his brain, right?

Bandung oh Bandung...

This post is for my friend Farah, who will visit Bandung this May... Friends, you got to believe me that Bandung is a great city to visit and shop... read Farah's post about "I love to belanja in Bandung' to read how many clothes and bags and shoes she got when she visit Bandung last March! Hehehehe.... You got the direct flight from KL to Bandung as well! What are you waiting for? Here's my post about Bandung if you missed it.

Here Farah, the picture of 3 bedroom condominium at Aston Hotel... I've surveyed the hotel for you. Look... the dining living room with a large tv (though they didn't use plasma tv mount but it's nice enough), welcoming you... (Cliff was taking a picture of me who was taking a picture of him.. huehehe) We also got a clean kitchen, complete with utensils and a pan for you to cook, stove, fridge and microwave. A bathroom for 2 bedrooms, one single bed and one double bed... one more room is, the same double bed (I think it's queen bed) with a tv and bathroom inside the bedroom... bathroom with bathtub.

The hotel is located and connected with Braga City Walk, where you can find a food court with many choice of delicious food and the playground for your kids to kill the time... you got swimming pool as well in the hotel! So, are you happy with this one? *wink*

I still want to show you the restaurant, where Clay had a piano concert... here is the outdoor area while we can dine under the starry night... Clay was actually playing the piano inside the room...
And this is the Bandung at night, viewed from the restaurant... Isn't it great and beautiful? I always dream that someday I could have a house with this kind of view!! :-)


And next time, I think you will like this kind of Sundanese food, I got more more delicious food pictures but have to edit and resize them first! Waaa I am hungry now..

A Tale of One Bacang

Ladies and gentlemen,
I have a great time at my blogaversary party... (still not sure whether it is blog iversary or blog a versary hahaha...but since it's my blog, I do what I want to do.. kekekeke). So sampat! I think some of us really need to go to drug treatment center to get healed from sampativitis... hahaha...

Here is my answer for the lormaikai picture... yeah my Bandung's lormaikai is no. 4 and 8! Bravo to Mr. LB, the author of Lormaikai Encyclopedia, who managed to sniff sniff and smurf smurf square lormaikai from Bandung. The rest of lormaikai pictures were taken from Littlemissmay, GiddyTigress, and someone I don't know.. hehehe... none of them from LB's blog except you share the same pictures with your friends, LB... *grin*


And this picture, is Bacang Ketan (Glutinous Bacang) just like lormaikai but different filling, and it is triangle.. hehehe...
One day, there is a turtle who wants a lormaikai so much, but he only got one triangle fake lormaikai name Bacang....

He excitedly open the banana leaf to see what is inside...
aaah... looks so shiny yummy!

Look at his eye ball on the background!
All he wanted was open his mouth widely
and ate it all, all at once! HAP!


Ok, back to blogaversary, I met new friends yesterday, thanks to Husia, Chev, Doreen, Samantha, GiddyTigress, Andie Summerkiss and Sandy C, for coming here to wish my blogaversary... thanks for those who has let me steal your lormaikai... hahahaha... forgive me ok?

Big Thanks to JoN, Jemima, LB, Lisa, Angeles and LJ who has played the chup treasure hunt in my blog! What a CHUPALOOZA (borrow LB's word)! Thanks for wanting some more Chupalooza games again next year... I hope it didn't give you too much trouble, BUT FUN FUN FUN! The result will be up on the first of May!

For those who still blurred about the CHUP things, it's okay... you will get it sooner or later and enjoy the fun. It took me some weeks to make my mind 'click' and 'cling' about the CHUP game at the Chup Headquarter.

I want to say thank you to all The Honorable Top Ten Commentators:

Another side of Bandung

Last Thursday we went to Lembang - a highland on the north of Bandung. There were a wedding anniversary invitation from 3 couples over there. I was so excited to go there as it was my favorite place ever! The place's name is Girindah, (Beautiful Mountain) and I used to work in a cafe there before. I've seen so many beautiful phenomenon over there... from the thick white midst, many beautiful sunsets, a gorgeous rainbow in one lovely afternoon (I even can see the edge of the rainbow!), the stunning Bandung at night scenery and a really wonderful bright fullmoon over there!! Can you imagine, one place could be so beautiful? We have the motto : Expect the Unexpected when we run the cafe there... I really love this place sooo much!

Come one I'll show you the mountain panorama... do scroll to see all the picture..


I don't know the name of the mountain on the left, but on the right (scroll to the right), you can see Tangkuban Parahu (the upside down boat) Mountain, because the shape is just like an upside down boat... can you imagine, the afternoon yellow sunshine ray make a bright spot on one side of the hill with many beautiful houses on the estate there? I saw the edge of the rainbow over there! Really unforgetable... (too bad I didn't have a good camera at the time)

Let see Bandung from the top! Hm... it's rather hazy though... but you can imagine how beautiful it can be at nights! *can't wait to have a chance to take the night pictures*


The problem is... my children often gets sick after we went there... oh boy... Clay got fever as soon as we reached home from Girindah.. it was so windy over there... I remember I bought 3 months old Cliff to stay a night there, for old and new family gathering (new year 2006) and I had to carry him all night long because he got a cold, couldn't breath and sleep well.. I didn't dare to bring him and spend a night over there again! Not yet.. but I will...

Let's see the food now!! Tutug rice! If you remember my email address is tutug.rice, here's the rice!! LOL... the rice fried with oncom (type of fermented soybean cake having red color).. and the dishes were juuusssst puuuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrfect!! Green tomatoes sambal, salty small cuttlefish, tempe balado, dendeng (beef cut into slices and dried) balado (chilly and spicy), steam tofu (in a banana leaf)... that is a tutug.rice lady... ! HA HA HA HA


Below is nasi gudeg from Yogyakarta, Javanese food. These are sweet,tasty, and spicy too.. I can't explain them here but I will take you to try these kind of food if you visit me someday!
Oh, that was an icecream wedding anniversary cake... taste yummy as well as a dessert!

Not only having a delicious lunch together, we also watched tv together. We just sat on the floor and coaches there, no special home theater seating... :-)

We watched recorded tv program - 3 wishes. It was a really touching series! All of us were so touched and wiped seeing the 30 minutes clip! It's about a young man who was born stuttered,( a stammerer). His mother came to the 3 wishes program and asked them to buy an earing aid for her son so he can speak normally again. Their wish was fulfilled and the son could speak so fluently! He was sooo happy that he kept on reading everything to enjoy his fluent speech. He had nominated himself to be a school president and his family came to hear his speech. They were very surprise to hear he could deliver his speech so fluent! What a touching moment I can tell...

From the clip we learnt that we really have to be grateful because we can speak fluently, not stammer. How we have take it for granted! We also learn that family support is really important for someone. Anthony, the stammerer, has a good self confident even though he was a stammerer because of his family, his mom, his grandpa, and he said they never thought he was a handicap because of that. One person he really want to meet and show that he is healed now, is his grandpa, which was passed away two weeks before he was healed. He said, his grandpa accepted him as he is... and always support him in all things he did.

Question of the day:
Please share one little thing that you think you've taken it for granted, that you should have be thankful...

Plant Supermarket

Last Friday we brought my parents-in-laws to a plant supermarket at Lembang. Lembang is a highland, around 30 minutes from Bandung. The temperature is so cool and fresh, we love going there on Sunday to get fresh and clean air. Here's the pictures I took for you too see...

The place is so huge and we can get various plants and flowers to make our garden beautiful. My father in law loves gardening, I am glad that I know what he likes so it is easier for me to make him happy. Let's have a tour...

My favorite place is the flower area... instead of green leafs collection, I love flowers better!The pink flower on the right is the candidate to be planted on my canopy's carpot! Now we will see many orchids! My father in laws love orchids and really proud of his blooming ones!

There is cactus area as well... I bought some for my father in law, he is collecting cactus these days..

I bought a pot of cute little cactus on the right below... just like a pearl necklace. The bigger picture is on the left. I love that fresh green one as well! you see? The more I see its picture the more I like it.. oh I will buy one when I go there again!

Now let's take a look at my garden at home!

This is my flowers collection... not much and I can't name them one by one... the picture is supposed to be bigger than this... not sure why it becomes so little.. anyway.. I think it's enough lah..

Leaves collections

This is the whole garden when my canopy was still beautiful with white flowers...

Hm.. sorry for the inconsistency of the pictures presentation... hehehe.. I am not patient enough to stick to one style of design! Anyway, it's my blog and I can do whaeva I want here! hahahaha..

Oh btw, I call a gardener once a month to take care of those flowers... I don't take care of them by myself! So I have no credit for all the beauties you see here... *grin* I am the same with you, just enjoy the beauty of nature!
