Bandung Trip for 2012 Part 1

SO!!! First trip of the year 2012 ever since I came back from overseas is to BANDUNG…

Bandung is well-known of its nice weather and cafes around the city. To some people, it is like 2nd Bali of Indonesia..To me personally? It’s like Melbourne where I can go and relax in cafes , having a cup of coffee in the morning , viewing the scenery, enjoy brunch with friends, loved ones, family, anyone you can name it!

My trip was then 3 days 2 nights! Although, I still think is not enough, but at least I go get to enjoy it, all that matters, don’t we?

We set out on Friday night from Jakarta to Bandung, and it was only about merely less than 2 hours of driving down to Bandung.

Next morning is our real journey to tour around Bandung , basically no plans of where to visit but all we are going to do is to search for good food… The first place that we went is called kafeteria 170 which located on its famous Pasir kaliki no 170. A unique name but unable to be tracked in our GPS.. Reason? GPS not yet being updated or Kafeteria 170 is just a mistery cafe of curiousity… *giggling*

When we enter the cafe, we were the first customer of the day! How awesome.. no one and its only US!  The atmosphere of the cafe is like an old antique coffee shop with kiosk of various food that you can look for in that place.

As we look through the menu, I decided to go with the most original club sandwich and nasi campur for breakfast. Nevertheless, I have ordered myself hazelnut latte and mini dim-sum donuts as you can see from the pictures.

When you visit Kafetaria 170, do not forget to buy some snacks from there. We bought local bakpia which have chocolate, butterscotch, green beans and cheese flavoured. Freshly baked everyday and here is the yummy bakpia!!! 😀 Stay tuned for more food adventure as this is just the beginning of the excitement!

Mocha Jo’s @ Glen Waverley

Just a few weeks ago, my girlfriends and i were gathering at Glen Waverley for brunch and decided to choose Mocha Jo’s (one of the famous places in that area).

We arrived at 11.30am and we just missed out the breakfast menu… 😦 So , we have to end up browsing through the lunch menu instead. I prepared my stomach for “#4 THE CHICKEN” – which consists Roasted chicken breast mixed with fresh herbs, fresh tomato, spinach leaves and chunky chips served with mayonnaise (which I reckon they made their own mayo…)For drinks, I ordered white mocha (Different from the usual mocha that we all know, but this tastes really really NICE~)

My other 2 friends has individually ordered “SAGANAKI” – which is Grilled traditional Greek cheese, fresh lemon wedge, warm pita bread and “SHELLFISH LINGUINI” – Fresh black mussels, baby clams, tomato, garlic, parsley, chilli, extra virgin olive oil.

Overall verdict, presentations are well organised, prices are reasonable and good atmosphere to hang around with your friends for couple of drinks. Each of us spent roughly about $20.00 for the meal and we all walking out happily ever after….~ 😀

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 😀
