You will always had a certain first impressions every time you’re going somewhere for the first time. You could fall deeply to that place or worst, you don’t even want to visit it ever again. Well, we’re just the same. We’re the first-impressions-do-matter kind of people, and when we visit the City Square for the first time after the renovation, it was waaaay better than the previous one when there’s always negative rumors regarding the square at night even though there’s a huge mosque there. It was sad, really.
But these days, the City Square is crowded with people picnicking or simply just having their quality time there with their loved ones, especially in the weekend. To put it short, the new City Square is lively. We heart those artificial grass mat and the best thing about our visit is that finally we get the chance to go up top to the mosque tower where we can saw Bandung from high above. It was exciting and a fun alternative spot to spent our weekend around the city, enjoying the new family-friendly public space, just like other tourists does nowadays. Another reason to love our hometown :)

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.

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?

Our kind of ideal weekend is when you can stroll the streets in the morning, having a picnic in the park with wicker baskets filled with homemade sandwiches, while enjoying each other company at all times. While real life may not always be exactly like this, but we always love the idea to spent our days-off dedicated entirely to enjoy the simplest things in life.
If you’re a bit of a picnic-craze like us, then maybe we passed by each other in this event last Saturday. It’s called A Day In A Park. Hence the name, it’s a day-long picnic-themed event taking place in NuArt Sculpture Park in collaboration with House The House, Agritekture, Open Table and Bengkel Tari Ayu Bulan. We’re lucky enough to be invited for this event. It was a day filled with exciting workshop for the little ones, tasty treats by your favorite stands, followed by a delicious afternoon in a pop-up picnic area that’s been meticulously adorn with lovely settings in the same hue as the dress-code for the event, white. We were pampered by delicious sets of food specially made by team of super-talented chefs from Open Table. Packed with sweet tunes and the traditional dancing performances from local talents as well as international to finish it up. It was a feast for the eyes as well as our happy belly.
More whity-white goodness after the jump!
