Orofi Cafe, a Touch of Santorini in Bandung

I assume you have at least witnessed this pretty cafe once in your Instagram feed or blog, or whatsoever, since this is one of the popular cafe in Bandung these days. I visited Orofi Cafe quite a long time ago, it was in December 2016 (hence the photo without guests. That time, not many people knew about the place. I was the only guest that day). But since people are still putting so much interest in this place (few people sent me DM asking about me about this too) so I decided to write about it.

Orofi Cafe is a cafe (restaurant) located in Dago Atas, Bandung. If you have visited The Valley Bandung, then it is located right in front of it. Use the Google Map (just like I did), I reached the place easily without getting lost or anything but that maybe because I used to live in Dago, Bandung for 4 years, I don’t know… haha. I hope you guys from outside of Bandung can find this place easily!

Next Level of Hammocking at Gunung Masigit, Bandung

Year 2016 was quite a memorable year to me since I had quite a lot of ups and downs. The downs happened mostly at the beginning of the year, but thankfully it got better to the end. No matter how hard life gets, I believe that it is our decision to make it a lesson or just do non-stop complaining then do nothing. Well I’m not a perfect person and I do also complain and cry when I got overwhelmed some times, but I can confidently say that at the end of the day I always try to take it as a lesson.

It was around the end of December 2016, and I just had to do something awesome to wrap the year. There was this one thing I have been eye-ing for so long, and it is hammocking on top of a stone mountain, Gunung Masigit, Bandung.

I’ve seen people posting it on Instagram couple of times, and it looked so awesome!!! I thought about “How did they climb to it? The mountain looked so high…” But I thought again, well I took picture in Yogyakarta’s Kalibiru, it looked so high but turned it it was all about the angle. This can’t be that hard laaah. *me being cocky*

Danau Biru, Hidden Gem Only 1-Hour Drive From Jakarta

It is quite difficult to engage with nature if you live in a metropolitan area like Jakarta. Most Jakartans will go to Puncak, Bogor, or Bandung when they long for natural surrounding, just to run away from the capital’s concrete jungle for a while. It took me by surprise when I bumped into a post in Instagram about this beautiful turquoise blue lake. At first I thought it was at Bukit Jaddih, Madura, or maybe at Danau Kaolin, Belitung (both are destinations I want to go to but I haven’t got the chance yet), but nope! I opened the Google Map and this lake was located just a little west from Jakarta, even closer from my home in Serpong. It is located in Cisoka area, Tangerang, Banten.

On a fine Sunday afternoon, I decided to visit this blue lake. Using the mighty Google Maps, it took me around an hour drive to get to this lake.
