Quick Dinner at Dimsum Bamboo

Here is a short post when I'm craving over about dimsum last week, and I'm begging to Apli and Marcel to accompany me to catching up that Chinese food. And they did, so happy! So on last Saturday nite we surfed to Dimsum Bamboo at Boulevard Kelapa Gading and got a very quick dinner. Cause at Dimsum Bamboo we only have an order until 9.00 pm meanwhile we're just arrived at 8.30 before they close the resto at 9.30. Why so quick to the last order? it's because their rule. Dimsum Bamboo has an "all you can eat" program just for 43k and the rule is you can't order the menu, the waiters will served the foods to you and you choose what you like to eat. You cannot take those all foods which the waiter serve you except you really want to eat that cause if you left one of a piece, you have to pay it in a different charge. But i recommend this to you to come earlier so you have a time to eat that much, cause for just an hour -just the three of us- can ate more than 25 plates! Haha, it's worth.

can you just accompany me, here..
we could share many things,
we could sing our favorite songs out loud together,
we could buy our favorite foods, remember that you like fine dining so much and dress up beautifully,
we could hurt each other (sounds so wrong, but ya know.. the 'jambak-tendang-tabok' things, i will miss em that much)
we could buy a drink and feel free to get drunk all night long,
we could do our great time together! :( :( :(
will you be the same like the old you when you got there?
will you remember me, missing me like i do to you?
will you stopping your busy thingy right there for a second just to say "Hi" to me on a chat-room?
will you keep posting your blog like i asked you on our last meeting?
will you send me your digital hug when i feel so damn tired and sad, when i need you?
ah, when you read it i can't hear your answer. :( :( :(
promise me you'll be okay over there,
promise me you'll hit your cousin's value!
promise me you'll be back soon with your new you,
and promise me that you'll never give up with this long distance relationship between us! (sound so weird..)
but well well..
i won't say goodbye to you..
here is my letter, hope you'll smiling next to your window at the plane and watch the sky and i down here..
just like Rangga smiling back to Cinta, you know..
and I'll be Cinta waiting you here..
waiting you come back to Jakarta again and bring me your best!
have a safe flight Omaaa..
I love you, my truly friend of mine. :)

February 20th, The Farewell

I never felt so strong like yesterday when i accompanied Oma to the airport and watching her saying goodbye to me. It’s the last warmest hug i feel to her, seeing and hearing her voice and in a real for the last time was the worst part of that day. She will be left to China for a year, but i thought it will be so long cause i still like to keep remembering so many great time i have ever spent with her, and it hurts so much to know that we’ll be separated in a long time and it’s distances. She’s a place i usually came by when i feel sad and i want to reach her just to asked a hug. But that day she left, i don’t want her to see me cry cause all i want is watch Oma has succeeded her study and coming back soon to Indonesia to give her best. But errr.. to be honest, I finally released my tears on my way back home and starting to miss her. I’m gonna miss you much, Oma.. so take care there. :')

The Beach Night Out

A couple days before Oma left to China for her study, we watched Barry Likumahua Project (BPL) on New Friday Jazz Nite at Ancol. The show was awesome! You know what really nice perform of these guys? They covering You Know Me So Well by Sm*sh into jazz! I love it not because i like Sm*sh but their music was really cool, wohoo.. so adorable and i want to see them again next time.

The show was ended at 10 pm, so after that we’re moving to Bandar Djakarta to get a dinner. And then at midnite coming, we’re going to the beach and walking barefoot in the white sands and play a swing near by the beach, having a nice conversation, enjoying the fresh air and laugh out loud like we were still a child. At that night we got plenty stories and humors to tell, and we shared it. You know, i’m gonna miss every single day we’ve been done through this year together, Oma, Apli... I love love love you two. :)

Full Day of Happiness

a sweet taste of Roejak Tjampoer at Sagoo

Went out to Kelapa Gading Mall with Apli to hunt and buy a sweater for Oma, to warm her in the winter before she's going to China on next Sunday. And then having lunch at Sagoo, a Chinese resto that serve Indonesian foods, as you can see a bit by these pictures above that they bringing us back to the 70-90’s memories! They sell some ‘jajanan’ and old stuffs that we really hard to find in this year lately, like at this picture, have you ever heard a drink called, ‘badak’? Haha, i’ve never! This is the second time i came here and i still want it more next time, it’s a nice place to chill.

On the next couple hours we met Oma and watching No Strings Attached. So romantic, here i come to put a quote on that film, “if you come any closer, i’ll never let you go.” That was Ashton Kutcher said to Natalie Portman when he try to convinced her to accept his love. That was sooo romantic! I want him!!! Yeaa, but well then, before we’re going back home, Oma and i decided to come in the Forbidden Dynasty Qin, a kind of Chinese haunted house at La Piazza. No need to ask... we obviously scared of that creepy thingy on that dark jungle setting in there. But i reference it to you who want to practice screaming with your mate. A perfect place to release your scream out loud. Enjoy! ;)

Nice Family Lunch Outing

nice back-light photos of my brother, Ristu :)

Before accompanying my mom to take a therapy to her breast cancer at Kalibata, we’re having a nice lunch at Dapur Sunda, Pancoran. They served a very good foods and drinks. We love it! And the place was cool enough for a sundanese resto, cause when i first came in it feels like I’m in japanese resto with the "lesehan" combine the windows that similar to a shoji door that i usually watch on the Japanese movie, in other way, the tables set on like a tatami room. Hmm.. am i the only one who have this vision? :D

A Short Trip To Bandung

Me, Apli, Oma, and Marcel got a short trip to Bandung on that weekend. We had a lunch at Sambara, a sundanese resto, near by the campus of ITB. And after took some rest there we moved out to Paris Van Java and spent almost an hour to walk around and enjoying the ambiance of the mall and then got a dinner at Black Canyon Coffee -not a really good serve of their meals but it's one of a cozy place to hang out with friends or family. We continued our trip to driving around the beautiful city of Bandung at night and dropped by to some, hmm.. what i supposed to call? Warung Surabi? Yeah, a kind like that. We try to taste some of different flavor of Surabi, and it’s really good. It’s a local food, a traditional one in Bandung, but tasted like some kind of junk food. Haha! Nice.

The NYE 2011!

Again, spent the New Year Eve with Oma and Apli, and the new members of Bajaj family, mas Adjuk! Yay! He is one of my mentor on Hellomotion and tarra.. he is Apli’s boyfie now. Haha! Anyway, we have a very nice dinner and took a free flow to taste some glasses of wine and cocktails in The Apartment at Gracia Tower, Kuningan. So delicious! And after celebrating the New Year Eve, we moved out to Kemang Food Festival to meet Marcel and his girlfriend. We’re playing card named “kartu babi”, it’s the best silly game of cards ever!!! I really miss to play it again these guys. :)

Coming Back To Beverly Hills 31

minus Jeff, woops! :D

December 18-19, me and my classmates of MC10-8B (Andre, Aa, Alita, Erren, Felio, Hendro, Ipud, and Jeff) went out to Beverly Hills 31, Hendro's villa at Bukit Danau, Puncak. We're having a lunch at Cimory, dinner at Sate Kiloan PSK and frozing like an ice there with the weather. Planning to go to Safari Night but in a half way to reach there, we had to cancel it because there’s a long traffic to turn around the Puncak Pass, so we’re decided to go back to villa and playing card, called “tepok nyamuk” and make it challenge for the losers to take a shot of some alcohol and get a little drunk. Sounds pretty bad but we’re having a good time, right? :p

There are over than 5 rooms in the villa, but that night we decided to sleep on a same room. So here we are 5 boys and 4 girls on the room and been so closed for trying to share some jokes, asking silly questions and singing out loud before we go to sleep together. Fun! Really fun.

And the next day we’re having lunch at Bumi AKI, a Sundanese resto. We got a nice view to looking the green mountain out there. And after that we’re back to villa again and got napping a while before we continued our last dinner at some hotel (I’ve got a lost memory to remember the place) but anyway, we got the foods and watching a live soccer of Indonesia-Philippines together. And then we go back home with a great time in mind. So happy! :)
