ktorg naik Air Asia early morning flight. nasib baik takde delay.
ni namanye AngKot or short for 'Angkutan Kota'. it's some sort of a minibus in Bandung. most of them commute all over town using this mode of transportation. angkot ni pintu die mmg tak penah bertutup. kalau kat tepi jalan, u tahan je angkot ni, terus hop in dgn pintu die yg terngaga tu. agak ngeri gak la. huhu.
ni our hotel - Grand Seriti Hotel. it's not too bad i think, highly recommended kalau anyone ade yg nak pegi Bandung :)
my sister teringin nak makan kat tempat ni - Ayam Goreng Suharti. tgk gmbr ibu Suharti tu pun i nak tergelak dah. heheee. but surprisingly food die sedap jugak la.
For the pastry:
1 cup wheat flour
2 tablespoons tapioca flour
1 tablespoon pork fat or oil
about 1 cup water
1 tablespoon tapioca flour for dusting
For the stuffing:
about 500 g / 18 oz pork or chicken, mixed with minced shrimp
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 bunch chives
oil for frying
Mix together the wheat flour and tapioca flour with the eggs, oil or fat and knead, adding water little by little, until a smooth dough that no longer sticks to the hands is formed.
Then dust the dough with tapioca flour and roll it out as thinly as possible. Cut into squares 10 x 10 cm/4 x 4in.
Wash the ingredients for the filling and the chives and chop up. Mix well. Place 1-2 tablespoons of this filling in the middle of each square of dough.
Fold the corners of the squares on top of each other so as to make a triangle. Make a dent lengthways in the middle of the triangle to create a kind of butterfly shape.
Deep-fry in plenty of oil. It takes about 5 minutes per run. These "pastry parcels" make ideal starters. They are delicious served with Sambal cuka or Sambal bawang putih.
lepas visit Tangkuban Prahu, kitorg mntak pakcik driver hantar ke Pasar Baru - the place yg byk kain2 kebaya, or textile mcm2 jenis. kat situ la i borong kebaya2 i hari tu. lepas dah shopping 4 jam kat situ, kakak i bwk i makan foodcourt kat situ jgk sbb die teringin nak makan soto makassar. maklumla dulu time die blaja kat Makassar slalu la kot mkn soto tu.
on our way back to the hotel we stopped by at a famous cake outlet in Bandung called 'Amanda'. ramai our friends yg pegi Bandung recommended this place so we decided to just buy a few brownies to bring home. byk brownies yg amanda ni buat, there's plain choc brownie, brownie tiramisu, brownie with cheese, pandan etc.
kat Amanda tu pun ade jual risoles - first time i tgk risoles yg dicucuk dgn cili padi. quite unique eh?
so that sums up our Bandung trip. byk gmbr yg i tak sempat nak amek actually, tp takpela. to me there's nothing much to see in Bandung, except if u plan to shop. if given another chance i would definitely go back - but just to revisit Pasar Baru n borong kain! ;P
