Bandung has switched over to festival mode last Sunday as the charming Keuken finally rolls back into the region. This annual one-day foodie fiesta took place at City Hall, hence the theme “City Hall Fairground“, and with the #GoodFestival campaign that contribute in creating a good town festival by building awareness of keeping the environment clean, for example to bring your own food container and using public transportation or bike, made that day positively spinning with aceness.
Flicking through the events is a wee bit overwhelming, so we just head along with an empty tum and going for a wander. We’re chuffed to try the scrumptious treats that many tenants has to offer, like AyamAyaman.com, Onigiri Futago, Batagor Hanimun, etc. We’re excited to check out the highlight booths, especially Loobie Lobster, where they served some finger-lickin grilled lobster. With bands like Vincent Vega, L’Alphalpha, Spring Summer, etc providing the weekend’s toe-tapping soundtrack from the music stage, but the one act we’re most looking forward to seeing is Bedchamber. The kitchen stage providing free yummy delights from Qisthas, Yayi x Tara (Ayshealthyascanbe), Chef Afit & Lucy Wiryono, etc along with DJ performances by Radit & Citra, Dimas Ario, Papermoon Records, etc.
The best part would be the playground area and its main attraction, the ferris wheel which glimmers at night. It was so lovely. Sweet tunes, lazy wandering, yummy foods and a bit of cute-part-of-the-town-exploring makes a perfect weekend time.

Shadows are pretty awesome things. It never ceased to amazed us, with the way it transforms into unique shapes by placing random things under any light (daylight is our favorite) and it follows us around all day every day too which is quite cool. When we on our free time, we love to play with afternoon lights and the shadow of our hands. It’s pretty addictive, we’re thinking to do this often enough when we have some spare time to spent in the afternoon.

The countdown to Keuken #5 is swiftly ticking by, and we’re waiting with giddy anticipation because we know it’s going to be merry. As we slowly approaching the D-day, the guys on Keuken made another pre-event for Kekeun #5 to spent your Sunday with. The second Surprise Stove with BDG Foodtruck at Taman Musik was held a couple of weeks ago and it was fun, multiple it by three. Everybody was lining up for free treats by Poyo and Dim Sum Soe and the crowds slowly filled the park as it is part of Pasar Seni’s live band audition. Good food and amazing music, what’s not to love?

Again? Oh, you’re so kind VSCO :)
It always excites us to go somewhere with a very scenic surrounding and having a let’s get lost moment there. This Kampung Naga for example. Gorgeous view and the warmth of the people, this one-of-a-kind culture is very eye and mind pleasing. Morrie went there last week and the presence there was so intoxicating for her it has a certain feeling that linger even when she’s back here already. In a lovely way that is. It’s already become one of her favorite place to go unwind from the busy body of the city.
Here are some of the shoots that she took there and yes, from those shoots and the stories she told me, I’m dying to go there sometimes with her.
Another beautiful views, after you “jump”!.
