Surprise Stove at U&KL Kitchen

Who doesn’t love a good food? Us in particularly, crave them. So, when Surprise Stove is happening (they always have some delicious foods plus a very exciting music around), it must be on our must-go list. No matter where and when. Like this last week Surprise Stove on UNKL Store for example. The warm and tasty foods and a nice ambience they provided attracts a crowd of people.

That day was fulfilling, for both the fun times and our happy tummy. All of the yummy goodness were cooked by Chef Arifin from U&KL Kitchen and the music ambience were from the DJ Booth featuring Egga, Melody, Faza and T.A.H. This was the first SS for Keuken #5: City Hall Fairground that is going to happen in a couple of weeks from now. To say that we’re excited would be an understatement.

Oh and there’s another Surprise Stove today (4/10) at Taman Musik, that start from 9AM. Come and spend your weekend time with us!

Bird House Project: Site Visit

“A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.”
-Chinese Proverb

 

Birds are fairly self-sufficient creatures really. Some kind of birds able to migrate across the country with little more than a few flaps of their wings, while some of the domestic ones prefer to hop along every trees and grass in our backyard for a bite. And just like us, our birdie buddies would appreciate a comfortable bed to crash in now and then.

Right at the middle of the year, when the sky is clear, the sun is shinning brightly and our feathered friends are chirping from the nearest trees, we got an invitation to participate in Bird House Project. This is an initiative project, launched by House The House and collaboration with U&KL. The event launching exhibition will be on July 6, 2013, at U&KL Eco Forestry Area, Jalan Gudang Selatan no 88 Bandung.

 

“A small celebration of the city’s design and creative scene by the means of its interaction to the city environment, with designed bird houses as a medium, inviting numbers of architects, designers, and artists from broad Indonesian creative base. Along with the notion of exceeding development within our urban surroundings, Bird House Project projected to remind these tomorrow’s people on the importance of constructing and planning such humble habitat placed not solely for humans’ use.”

 

Below are some of the photos of participant meeting and technical briefing, last Friday when we visited the site.

HOMESESSION001

HOMESESSION001 is an event hosted by NorrmU&KL (UNKL347′s furniture division), and House The House. It was held last Saturday at a formerly military ammunition storage transformed into UNKL347’s headquarter office, located on Jalan Gudang Selatan 88.

 

“The main reason of why we try to start Home Session is the feeling of ease, openness, classlessness, and deep-seated concerns to value our surrounding through simple things, like small gathering and music. Home Session is a space that allows us to view aspects from a rather intimate scale, or sometimes might just be a weekend visit to someone’s place, someone’s house, someone’s backyard, with cameras, and few records, that could be bringing us up to some nice conversations and pleasure.”

 

HOMESESSION001 hosted a furniture exhibition featuring design creations by some of Bandung’s designer. Including U&KL, Artes Indonesia, Goodwood & Carpenter Co, Zanun Nurangga, Metronome, Kandura, Meizan Nataadiningrat, etc it brought together a whole bunch of different approach in furniture designs with some good tunes from Dxxxt, Egga, Rekti from Bhang Records, and Bergas. On the other side, POP-UP KITCHEN by SURPRISE STOVE prepared by Keni Soeriaatmadja (Bin Ukon) and Arifin Windarman & Lukman Gunawan (Open Table). Free foodies for all the first getter! (Bin Ukon’s Smoked Chicken is heavenly, we fell in love at the first bite)

We dragged ourselves there and it was pretty brilliant that it actually cured our headache caused by traffic (weekend traffic that is!) HOMESESSION001 is a combination of three things that we, heck, everybody love; good designs, great foods, and best musics to spent your Saturday, getting inspired by.

If you by any chance missed the event, have a glance past their web for more info and details about Home Session. See you on the next visit! :)
