Makan-Makan in Bandung

Assalamualaikum,

Seperti tajuk yang telah dipilih makan-makan di Bandung so of course I wanna share bout some of my eating experiences in Bandung which I must say very interesting and never disappointing...As a food lovers exploring the foreign taste (chait, foreign le sangat makan nasi gak!!!hihihi) is a must and in order to adapt and get used to the new environment tatsing and trying the food is a very crucial and necessary experiment...therefore, I have few pics that I wanna share bout few places that I have went to indulge my passion for food...

1. Warung PatiLele - Warung Kedai Ikan Keli
But, they offer lots of other menus (x le bnyk sngt, but there are varieties)...
The price is reasonable and I think it's quite cheap..
The taste is good!!!
The place is clean though it is not very big, it is comfortable..


                           ada ayam, lele (ikan keli) & bebek (itik) as the menu..to choose from

this is what I ate...here in Indonesia they really love tauhu and tempe with sambal..the nasi that I ate is nasi uduk kinda like nasi lemak..


 this is my friend, emma's dish..pecel lele with spcial sauce..can't remember the name but it's good..there's sweetness and a bit of spiciness in it..


2. Java Break in Bandung Indah Plaza
This is what I had after a trip into Rumah Hantu Bandung (I'll write on another page)..since I had order bubur ayam for my dinner ( didn't pan to go to the Rumah Hantu) so I just had this Sweet and Rich Strawberry Choco yoghurt..while accompanying my friends to eat..

 Sweet and Rich Strawberry Choco yoghurt with whip cream on top just made my day and put a smile on my face..coz I'm a sweet tooth so I enjoy it so very much..

 Java Break is the brand name...I found it in BIP (Bandung Indah Plaza)..they offer lots of other types of drinks but most of it coffee..


3. Roemah enak-enak
Roemah enak-enak is highly recommended by me coz I really appreciate the decorations and the atmosphere of the restaurant..it is inviting and the taste of the food is not bad, it is actually taste nice and the most important point is it suits my taste bud...At first, we thought that it would be pricy...judging from the apperance of the restaurant but it is not..The price is acceptable and can be considered cheap for a classy place like this..Imagining if we were to eat at a restaurant like this in Kuala Lumpur, it would cost us more and it would be very pricy...

 Roemah enak-enak...This place is superb for me..it is cozy n romantic..it is suitable if you wanna have a date here...huhuhu..I also had a date with my GF Syikin Rosli here for our dinner..and it is absolutely not disappointing

ada candle lagi..ala-ala candle light dinner gitu, beratapkan langit malam dan angin sepoi-sepoi bahasa ( x ke sikit punya romantik tu) and this is my GF for the night, thanks to Syikin Rosli we gotta find a wonderful place for our dinner..style buku menu pon special


bunga pon ada dengan pasu lg...(plus point for a romantic atmosphere..huhuhu)..so we were sitted at table no 28..

these are some of the decorations on the wall..

the decoration inside of the restaurant

lemon punch..frizzy and refreshing..wohooo!!! taste Good..

 These are our food for the night...simple dishes but awesome taste for 2 hungry bellies..huhuhu..terasa mcm di Malaysia plak









Cool huh...this is the sign to show ladies toilet

this is the toilet's door from inside..hahaha..the funny feeling snapping a picture in a bathroom still  stuck in my head..but I gotta admit..the door is unique and that's the only reason for me to took out my camera and documented this.The toilet's door!!!

this is the sign to show gents toilet

AKU

Aku,
Ditakdirkan menjadi Khalifah di bumi Allah,
Malangnya sering khilaf dan berdosa,
Ingin berubah,
Menjadi yang lebih baik,
Mencari barakah di bumi Allah,
Mencari ketenangan hidup,
Mencuba untuk berjaya di dunia juga akhirat,

Tetapi,
Perubahan itu tidak gampang,
Tidak pernah semudah ABC,
Tidak mungkin sesenang 123,
Kita tetap perlu berusaha,
Kerna sesungguhnya Allah memandang usahsa dan bukannya hasil semata-mata,

Tanpa usaha kita tak ke mana,
Tanpa doa kita tak mungkin berjaya,
Tanpa tawakkal yang jitu kita bakal pincang,
Tanpa izin dari-Nya, redha dari-Nya dan rahmat dai-Nya,
 Kita hanyalah manusia yang rugi.

p/s: Ingin menulis tentang 11th hour, when someone decide to change during the 11th hour but died at 10th hour, what happen? Ingin mengarang tentang cerita itu, tetapi ayat-ayat puitis tidak mampu digarap, bahasa-bahasa indah tidak terluahkan. Maka, aku mengarang kata-kata tidak berseni di atas lembaran ini, mencantum ayat-ayat pasar buat bacaan dan peringatan buat diriku yang khilaf ini.

Dear Little Bother

Assalamualaikum,

Dear little brother,

I've been thinking and there are lots of things that I wanna share with you. I wish I was in Malaysia so that I can talk to you face-to-face and give you all the encouragement that you needed during this moment of time ( Oh Gosh!!!tooo lenghty). But what-to-do I need to survive also, therefore, I'm here in Tanah Jawa to complete my responsibility a a final year student. 

I understand your disappointment and your sadness but you gotta be strong. Life don't stop or ended just because of you didn't get straight A's for your SPM. This is just a beginning for something better. Congratulate your friends for getting straight A's or no matter how many A's they received, don't feel jealous of what they received yet feel grateful with whatever results Allah has granted you. You see Awad, Allah knows better why He gave you those results. So, don't blame the fate yet find courage to correct whatever that's wrong and improve yourself. One door is closed, another door is open. That's how life works. Your school life may ended but your journey as a caliph does not end yet. So, don't despair and never loose hopes coz Allah is always by your side - seems familiar, it is Maher Zain's In Shaa Allah's lyric. Put your every belief  and trust in Allah. Of Course you need to plan, if you fail to plan you plan to fail but know this Awad, Allah is THE BEST PLANNER of all. He knows better than every single person in this whole wide world including myself. Don't feel burdened with my past achievements, never ever in a million years feel that you need to prove something to me or you need to pass me in any ways coz we're 2 very DIFFERENT persons with 2 very DIFFERENT destinies. You chose to be in boarding school while I'm not. Plus, ever since we were born we've carved different destinies as we chose to follow different path... If you're feeling afraid of people's expectation and what people would think and the judgement of everyone around you..please don't be..people will judge and they will have their own expectation, no matter what, that's how the society functions so accept the judgement and expectations with open heart. As long as you know that you work hard and put every single trust and belief in Allah, then there's nothing you should be worried coz only Allah knows who you really are and only Him can judge you well. Don't try to satisfy others if you're gonna suffer by doing so. Do something that will delight you as long as it is the path that Allah blessed than I see no problem in putting yourself first. If you're afraid that you've made our parents disappointed, please don't be coz they're not. They have always and will always be supporting and love you and be proud of you no matter what. This is simply because you're their precious son. Remember that always in your heart, dear little brother.

Dear little brother,
Sometimes Allah doesn't grant your wish just yet, not because He doesn't love you but He wanna test you. He wanna test your patience, your iman. Sometimes, He doesn't grant your wish, probably coz He thinks that you're not ready for it yet. You see, Awad you gotta understand that everything happens for a reason. If you're patient enough, one day you'll understand the hikmah, the benefits of all things that happen. But until that time comes, don't ever run from Allah, always remember Him, pray for the best, seek His forgiveness as we know that we're His servants that always done wrong. We're not a perfect being my little brother. There will always be flaws but don't ever forget that Allah is always by our side. Therefore Ajwad, if you need to cry, then cry your heart out. It's ok to do so, you'll always be my macho little brother even if you cry. But after all the tears, wake up and put everything that has happen as your past and learned from it. You gotta remember the past so that you won't repeat the same mistakes so you'll learn to be better. There is a saying that goes by - "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"- George Santayana. Ajwad, the journey doesn't end here, you can't give up coz Allah will never give up on you until you give up on Him. so, Don't ever give up on Him and on yourself. You're the only person who can change yourself, can make yourself successful and determine your future. Nobody else can done it for you. So, don't let go of your future just because of a challenge from the past. If there is wall in your life you gotta climb over it, if you just wait you'll achieve nothing.

A155

Demi sesungguhnya! Kami akan menguji kamu dengan sedikit perasaan takut (kepada musuh) dan (dengan merasai) kelaparan, dan (dengan berlakunya) kekurangan dari harta benda dan jiwa serta hasil tanaman. Dan berilah khabar gembira kepada orang-orang yang sabar:

(Al-Baqarah 2:155) | 
 

Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere, 


A214

Adakah patut kamu menyangka bahawa kamu akan masuk syurga, padahal belum sampai kepada kamu (ujian dan cubaan) seperti yang telah berlaku kepada orang-orang yang terdahulu daripada kamu? Mereka telah ditimpa kepapaan (kemusnahan hartabenda) dan serangan penyakit, serta digoncangkan (oleh ancaman bahaya musuh), sehingga berkatalah Rasul dan orang-orang yang beriman yang ada bersamanya: Bilakah (datangnya) pertolongan Allah?" Ketahuilah sesungguhnya pertolongan Allah itu dekat (asalkan kamu bersabar dan berpegang teguh kepada agama Allah).
  (Al-Baqarah 2:214) | 
 Or do ye think that ye shall enter the Garden (of bliss) without such (trials) as came to those who passed away before you? they encountered suffering and adversity, and were so shaken in spirit that even the Messenger and those of faith who were with him cried: "When (will come) the help of Allah." Ah! Verily, the help of Allah is (always) near!
 


A002
Patutkah manusia menyangka bahawa mereka akan dibiarkan dengan hanya berkata: "Kami beriman", sedang mereka tidak diuji (dengan sesuatu cubaan)?
(Al-'Ankabuut 29:2) | 
Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, "We believe", and that they will not be tested?
 



p/s: I write in english so that I won't sound very melodramatic. kalau tulis dalam BM nanti mesti puitis mcm pujangga tak berilmu di malam hari...so, adik kalo nak ngadu ape2 I'm all ears..just online n skype k..x keno byr..hehehe..credit Ayat al-quran dan tafsir , thanks to www.surah.my.

assalamualaikum

choose wisely...
have you ever heard that?
but I think the bigger question now is How to Choose Wisely?
I wanna build my own persona..
I just wanna be Me..

as the years pass, I've been making lots of decisions...lots of roads were left not taken..
I'll never know the outcome of the road not taken..
I'm very grateful with everything that life has to offer, as I learned a lot through every path that I've taken..
but now, I'm scared, as you grow older, and you loss the insanity of being teen (i'm entering adulthood reluctantly), I need to think for a better future..but what is a better future for me?
I'll never learn bout the future till the future becomes present and you can only learn from the past...
I have to make a decision whether to go with the norm or be the outcast..
I have to choose...

so,
after graduating what should I do?
should I do my master?
should I find a job?
should I travel?
should I get married?

if money is never a problem..then lots of people can do what they like vs what they have to do..

p/s: i really wish to do what I love in life..but sometimes you gotta choose to survive..I just don't wanna end up hating the routine of my life like some people do...so I gotta think and choose wisely..allizwell..coz I also know that the best planner of all is Allah..and He knows what best for me..dan sesungguhnya ketenangan itu hadir dlm mengingati Dia Yang Maha Kuasa...

P.E.S.A.N.A.N

tetiba je teringat pesan ayahanda terchenta yang berada di Tanah Melayu sedangkan aku kini berada di Tanah Jawa..kuikuikui..klaka plak tulis cmni..

Ayah kata "Allah akan melapangkan & memudahkan urusan kita, andai kita sudi untuk melapangkan & memudahkan urusan orang lain"

Ayah pesan lagi "Seandainya kita ingin memberi, berilah dengan hati yang ikhlas, jangan sekali-kali merungut. Seandainya kita x mampu untuk ikhlaskan hati maka janganlah diberi kelak takut kita hanya akan berdosa kerana mengungkit pemberian yang tidak seberapa itu"

Ayah pesan jugak "Jangan lupa kumur2 dgn Listerine..nnt takut mulut tu berbau plak"..hihihihi..

Macam-macam pesanan Ayahanda aku ni..pesanan Bonda lagi le berbakul-bakul rotan dibekalkan..Nenda dan auntie terchenta pon begitu jugak..

Antara pesanan yang paling feymes (tringin nak eja gini):
"kat tempat orang jaga diri baik-baik"
"Jangan tinggal solat. Ingat Allah selalu"
"Kalau duit da abes bagitau"

p/s: sengaja mahu mengingatkan diri ini semula janji Allah kepada hambaNya...sesungguhnya Mati itu pasti, dan hidup itu andai diizinkan Allah..dan tidak ada sesiapa mahupun apa-apa yang dapat melengahkan mahupun mempercepatkan saat tibanya ajal walau sesaat..
