Seba & Sabi. What are you guys talking about?

When the first day of the workshop ends, Dinda and I went to Roti Gempol (on Jl. Gempol Wetan No.14, Citarum, Bandung) for early dinner, before we returned to the hotel.

23 March 2017. Around 8 am, we went to hotel restaurant for breakfast. Then, we left to the campus of ITB to attend the last day of the workshop. After lunch break, Dinda and I visited Taman Sejarah, a historic park which is newly available for public use. Such area is situated behind Balai Kota Bandung. On the park, you can find relief walls and several glasses in a row which portray the faces of the mayors of Bandung. Moreover, if you travel with children, they can play in shallow pool on this park. When I was there, there are a lot of elementary / kindergarten students participate in a study tour.

Then, we walked to Taman Balai Kota which lies in the complex of Balai Kota Bandung. It was pretty crowded when I visited the park. The majority of the visitors are teenagers, who do dance practice, take photos, or just sit in the park. There is a statue of white rhinoceros (Taman Badak) there. Below the statue, there is a fish pool with fountain. In addition to that, you can also find love locks area. Above the love locks, there is a red ‘LOVE’ sign.

My next destination was Yolan’s house, because Aunty Sabi missed Baby Adeeva so much :3 also, I miss Mommy Yolan’s home-made food ❤ After Maghrib, I returned to the hotel.

Adeeva :*

 

24 March 2017 was my last day in Bandung, it was a free time yaaay! In the morning, Dinda and I swam in hotel swimming pool, because I hadn’t worked out during the week.

Then, we returned to the room, took a shower, and had breakfast. We had breakfast along with Fika, who visited us at the time 😀 after had breakfast, we packed our belongings and Dinda went home, while Fika and I headed to Yellow Truck (on Jl. Linggawastu No.11, Tamansari, Bandung).

my favorite tea of all times : English Breakfast!

The last but not the least, Fika drove me to Bandung Station (thanks Fika!). I rode Argo Parahyangan train at around 11:30 to Jakarta, so I can join tennis practice in the afternoon 😀

I never get bored to visit Bandung ❤ despite the fact that there are some places make me feel nostalgic, but still I love Bandung so much!

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.
