Bandung Part 2

Although I was told Bandung is a small town, with such short trip of 3 days 2 nights, it is not enough for me to tour around there. Main place such as Kawah Putih is a tourist attraction that could not be missed. Just in the middle of nowhere, there is an existence of a lake filled with fluoride water that eventually looks bluish. I tried to learn on the photography skill in order to take good pictures, so indeed some photos that I would love to share. Some of the photos were not taken by me, so credibility is indeed not just from me. 🙂

After visiting Kawah Putih, next pitstop is no doubt another exploration of cafes that I have done some homework via searching from the net. Hummingbird – What does it mean to you? This place that I went to is definitely one of the most nice place that I would love to visit again just to hang out with my friends. What I love about Bandung is that there are so many cafes that emphasizes on the design of their cafes and transform into another wonderland. Looking at the menus, I decided to order myself wagyu teriyaki rice that serve with healthy vegies. We also ordered entree that I actually have forgotten the name of it. >_< I realised in Indonesia has a trend of ordering flavoured tea such ice lychee tea, iced peach tea and etc. My “friend” ordered lamb shank and it tasted really good. Nevertheless, we ordered Coffee cake and Red Velvet Cake and really taste yummy…

Right after our lunch, we decided to visit Brussels Spring which located at Setiabudi of Bandung – another unique cafe to taste some of the menus that they offered in there. Look at the photos that I’ve shared ! Isn’t this look really cool? Dried flowers thrown into the jar of hot water and eventually open into what they have called it Blossom Tea. It doesn’t take really strong which in fact I think it is just perfect for a tea-time menu drink. On the othe hand, my friend ordered strawberry smoothies (which they name it Valentine) ~ Although just a normal smoothy, but the glass and spoon that re-presented has made it more exciting.

Recent Cravings for cupcakes

My recent cravings for cupcakes are getting serious. @___@

From where I worked, there is a nearby “Little cupcakes” shop nearby where  I can get easily get cupcakes for my tea time. Little cupcakes is the first original cupcake store (as fas as I know) where they have lots and lots of various cupcakes made everyday. I have made a collection of what they usually have in store.

Apparently, Red Velvet flavour is one of the most popular flavour that most regular customers would go for it. Secondly, belgian chocolate , cookies & cream are my favourites too. So don’t forget to try them out when you are there! Order different types and share with your best friends! 😀

They have in standard sizes or mini sizes. For me, I find mini cupcakes is just prefect for tea session. Of course, by all means if you are a fan of cupcakes, then just let go everything for a standard size. Nevertheless, do try their Mocha or Hot chocolate to go with the delicious desserts.

They accept for online ordering at Little cupcakes website

Windsor Hotel for Tea Time

Just a few months ago, 2 of my best friends and I went to Windsor Hotel to have our tea time session. Before we went, I did some researches on the review for their tea time. Most people who have been there have commented that they served one of the best tea time in Melbourne. With $59 per person for tea time, each of us are being served each set of assorted cakes, sandwiches, scones and  different types of tea to choose from and champagne we can enjoy.

The adventure is totally different as the place is full of old, antiques and it feels like I’m into the 17th centuries back to the past. I am totally so in love with the whole surrounding around me…

A very nice place to go and MUST try for once in a life-time. They only do certain limited quantities, so you need to make reservations in order not to waste your trip 😀 www.thehotelwindsor.com.au
