Senandung Melagu

We always had a thing for Indonesian songs, especially those from the 60′s to 70′s. The harmonious melody adorned with effortless yet poetic lyrics. Every so often the lyrics is about love but many is about daily mundane things that you could never think people could actually make a song about it. It’s so amusing and made us laugh sometimes.

When we listened to those songs, we always imagined how it is to live in those years and how the people doing their routines back then. A certain thing we noticed about them is how cheerful is the tone of the songs with the way the singer sang, and how it evoked some kind of happiness to the people who hear the songs for the first time. They really made our day.

So, we gather some of our favourite ones in hope that you can feel the uplifting vibe even in the rainy and cloudy days (just like in Kanazawa & Bandung these days *sigh*). Here is our Senandung Melagu mixtape. You can listen on 8Tracks or just download it here.

Have a pleasant day, everyone!

The Field Dining

Nothing brings people together like warm ambience on the weekend. Even when the weather is getting chillier than a polar bear’s nose, we’re always on the look out for ways to spend our day-off outside, all soak up with the nature and probably with some delicious foods on the plates.

Last Sunday, we took a trip to the upper side of Bandung for The Field Dining. It was a preliminary event to Braga Culinary Night that is going to happen early next year. We spent our Sunday morning amongst the greenest of the fields and peaceful rural scenery for a full course dining experience under the sun.

more photos after the jump!
