Funny Graffiti

This graffiti was spotted at Bandung train station, East sector wall. As a frequent user of this train station, this is the first time I saw this graffiti. No wonder, this sector are rarely to roamed by public, because most in this sector are repairing and maintenance facility. only the train station employee and few people are used to be in this sector. 
I'm not really sure about what this graffiti tried to tell but I like the cute little train playing the remote control. It's quite strange tough, seeing this "kids play" graffiti, as the people around this spot are mostly adult and some "oil and grease  macho"  type mechanics. But it really fill the blank wall with some fun indeed..

Roemah Kopi - "The coffee House"

Roemah Kopi (Coffee House) at Dago Atas North Bandung. One of my favorite place to find any kind of black coffee. I regularly visit this place on weekend.
This time I'm going to try "Luwak" coffee, one of very strong black coffee in the coffee family. And have a very unusual story on its making process (more on this later)..

Kerjabakti - Social works and togetherness

We Indonesian people are attached each other socially in a way of harmony like a big family. Of course, I believe everybody in the world would do the same with their unique way, it just the different way of how Bandung country side people interact each other in a social basis. As a part of big family, we help each other, works together and gain the prosperity from cooperation.

This is what we called "Kerjabakti" a cooperative social works by the people of the country side usually to show, when there are something to build or to fixed in their village. Build a water channel for the paddy field, build a mosque or just fixing the land slide blocking the road. They do it together with no demands of payment or return. It involves a lot of people, men doing their "manly" things and the women, provide a lunch or just a fresh lemon tea.
Usually it held on sunday, when everybody are likely being at home. No need to be a professional to do this, just strong hands with the right tools and the social soul of course. Some times it just like a festival as the people from the neighbor village are drop by to help.
We do it socially, we do it for free, for the prosperity, and of course, we do it with fun..
