wedding and all that shananigans..

I hate organizing an event, I hate putting up with meetings and the people and coordinating and planning the budget, but it looks like since college I’ve been cursed with the task of event-head. From faculty graduation event which, ironically, I always responsible about the budget (aka : found the money for a stage and lighting where a band played to be cheered by drunk college student).

I have fun, but I did not enjoy it much. Well the cursed continue..

As I graduated, lots of my friends are getting married, lucky for them, my parents have this huge flower fields of various chrysanthemum and I can get access for low price flower in other variant, such as rose, lily, carnation, etc.. so they ask me for help in their wedding decoration and I’m glad to help them, especially if they can tighten the budget with my flowers ( the price in flower market almost twice the price from the farmer).

So, I end up helping my Wedding Organizer friends in the flower area, which end up in the decorating area too. I still don’t enjoy it much (me plus my organization things is crap) but every time I see the bride and the venue and all that flowers I feel some short of happiness too, glad that I’m part of this. And it is really worth it.

After 3 weddings, 1 siraman (a procession where the bride is showered and blessed by the family member), 1 small wedding ceremony, I’m kinda used to it. But earlier this year, my friend who used to hire me for help moved to Aussie, I’m back to square one in wedding area : don’t want to do anything with it.

But two weeks ago, I’m asked by my college friends to decorate their wedding and I can’t help the temptation with all the flowers and the rush hours (oh yes, I’m kinda miss it). So here I am, with my new partner, Manik, going back to wedding business. I hope I enjoyed it still. 🙂

Because women can’t get enough of chocolate

as silly as the axe ad sound, it is true. Lately, chocolate shop is blooming everywhere in Bandung. Last afternoon, before visiting my sis on hospital (really, I’m so getting used to the hospital foodcourt, I make friend with the waitress there) me and Nuy visiting Toko Coklat (indonesian for ‘chocolate shop’).

my little sister are crazy about their ganache rum chocolate, while my favourite is choco rum ball. . But what more interesting from this little shop, is well, the building itself. They have this minimalist little building with framed glass wall on the facade, so you can see inside the store from the road.

this what the front store looks like. the warm light inside the store are so inviting. Building attract buyers. In this case, is so right.

the interior is simple and clean, with sets of table so you can enjoy their cakes while drinking hot chocolate. Look outside, the green scenery is really suited the building. perfect. we had a great time choosing our chocs, it have liquers, filled with rum, mint, cakes, truffles, cookies. so much fun.
