Bandung : The Majesty Hotel, Teras Cihampelas, Warunk Upnormal, Ciwalk

Standard

21 March 2017. Dinda (a friend of mine in the office) and I went to Bandung, because we had to attend IIGW (International ITB Geothermal Conference) 2017 @ the campus of ITB on 22-24 March 2017. Je suis ravie, as it’s been a while since I last visited my campus in early 2014……

We rode Argo Parahyanagan Train which departed from Gambir Station at 8.45 am, and reached Bandung at 12 pm. In Bandung Station, I bought a box of Mayasari’s bolen pisang keju (cheese and banana wrapped in dough). Then, we went to Majesty Hotel (on Jl. Surya Sumantri No.91, Sukajadi, Bandung).

After check-in, Dinda and I headed to our room on the 12th floor. Our room is a 3-bedrooms-and-2-bathrooms-apartment of (around) 100 square meters. After we had took a rest for a while, we decided to go to the hotel restaurant (next to hotel lobby) and have the welcome drink.

Next, we intended to have lunch @ Roti Gempol Jl. Surya Sumantri, buuuut when we got the place, it evidently has already permanently closed now 😦 so that, we changed our destination to Cihampelas Walk (Ciwalk) and Teras Cihampelas / Cihampelas Skywalk not longer after.

Cihampelas Street currently resembles a tunnel, since a bridge (called Teras Cihampelas) of length 500 m was built above it. There are 3 staircases and 1 lift which is available for you to climb the bridge.

Then, we had early dinner @ Warunk Upnormal (padahal di Jakarta juga ada yaaa hehe), before we got into the cinema to watch Beauty and the Beast 😀

Warunk Upnormal’s most famous item is their selection of creative indomie dishes. Such restaurant consist of 2 stories (non smoking on the 1st floor and smoking area on 2nd floor). Their wifi is good enough, while the interior inside is cozy and instagram-able.

my nasi kulit sambel konslet (rice, chicken skin, hot sambal) and lychee juice

At the time, I picked lychee juice and nasi kulit sambel konslet (rice, chicken skin, hot sambal) with addition of sliced smoked beef. Both the dish and the beverage tasted good 😀 the waitress said that sambel konslet is a very hot sambal, buuut I think it’s not really hot hmmmm~ However, it is delicious, I like it!

 

PS : all photos in this post courtesy of Dinda, because a couple of days after I returned to Jakarta, I lost all photos in my phone’s Camera album hiks…… Bon, see you tomorrow.

Bandung : Farmhouse Susu Lembang, RM Padang Malah Dicubo

Standard

18 September 2016. The five of us (Sabi, Mba Hana, Ndai, Manda, and Rani) woke up early and took a shower, then we ordered Roti Gempol for delivery via GoFood. After that, we left hotel (Chara Hotel, Gatot Subroto) around 9 am and headed to Farmhouse Susu Lembang by Fika’s car. Thank you Fika for picking us up 😀

Since we left quite early, the traffic congestion didn’t occur yet Alhamdulillah. So that, we could arrive at Farmhouse 30 minutes later yaaay! AT the front entrance, we should pay IDR30,000/person. Please keep your ticket safe, as it can be exchanged for a glass of (chocolate / plain / strawberry) milk for welcome drink. After Fika had parked the car, we strolled around Farmhouse.

Farmhouse Susu Lembang is one of current most popular tourist attraction in Bandung. It is situated on Jalan Raya Lembang. Fyi, Lembang is renowned for its milk production. Buildings inside the Farmhouse were designed to resemble classic European houses. SUch place is totally crowded on weekends hiks. I thought that Farmhouse is quite similar to Colmar Tropicale – Malaysia, it is bigger than Malaysian’s tho, also the weather is friendly, cold enough compared to the Colmar Tropicale ❤

Our next destination was Bandung Station, because we would like to return to Jakarta afterwards. Before we boarded the train, we bought klapertart and brownies @ Den Haag Klapertart and Kartika Sari, across the station. Also, we bought the most delicious dendeng ijo (dendeng batokok) in the world @ RM Malah Dicubo for lunch :9
