Yesterday, me and some of my fellow VLSI lab residents went to visit our friend Fikri, who got married last month, at his new home. It’s located in a residential complex called Griya Cempaka Arum in southeastern Bandung. We headed out from Plaza Parahyangan, where my buddies had a futsal match earlier that morning, at about 10:30 am. With the help of two Google Map printouts and several phone calls, we arrived at about 12pm.
The place is quite far from the town, but it’s nice and peaceful. The air is cool and fresh, and it’s quiet save for the occasional distant train klaxon. In the distance, visible from the front door, a mountain stands proudly.
