Cake of the month: Bali's Bakery

having a pretty tight schedule of mid term exams, I definitely have no time for social networking which includes blogging. Hence, I have finished my exams right now and actually, time flies, it's the end of the month already. November has really been quite an interesting month for me. Many things have happened in this month, many encounters with new people, and I am enjoying pretty much knowing the world.

For most of you who have been following my previous posts, you know that I went to Bali for a short vacation. Yes, I have a quick getaway with my fellow friends and I pretty much enjoyed the trip with them. So, I went to this bakery in bali, which is so called the Bali's Bakery. As I am going to review about the cake-of-the-month post, I couldn't talk much about the bakery itself. However, I am gonna make a special review about it, and the place is very hype in Bali. For me, this bakery is actually one of the BEST bakery that sells the BEST of the BEST bread, cakes, etc among all of the bakeries that I have ever tried before.


this one is my favorite ! Shocking filling inside, which is chewy marshmallow topped with milk chocolate in crunchy texture. You may never know how complicated the taste it but surprisingly, it tastes good, like very very very delicious!

In personal, I am not really the sweet-tooth type of woman. yes i do love chocolates, sweets, candies, marshmallow, but I am not that big fan of the sweetest thing on earth. I can eat them, but not as much as normal people would do. I prefer savoury and spice food over the sweet ones. 

Bali's Bakery is indeed a nice place to hang out with your friends. The place is cozy, comfortable, and also very childhood-flashback like. 
I am going to review about this place soon, so stay tune with food couture

foodcouture goes to Bali (part 2)

Have you ever heard about the childhood movies called The Ugly Duckling? perhaps, most of us have heard it before. it is a story about an ugly duckling turning into a beautiful swan. During its 'youth' time, it was mocked by others because it was different than other ducks. However, physical appearance and personality should not be judged similarly, as they are different in one another.

Bali is famous for its Bebek Bengil (the dirty duck diner) restaurant. From the name, we should have realized that its main menu is the duck, but it is not dirty. It was said that the location was actually used to be full of ducks, around the field area. Inspired by the supporting situation (of so many ducks around), so the owner created this traditional restaurant that serves duck as its own specialty.

 Fried Dirty Duck.
 Bebek Bengil Sambal ijo. I love the chili spice.

 The fact is, I dislike eating duck. So, I ordered this BBQ Chicken Breast with fried fries instead. Everytime I go here, this is what i always order. I like the spice and the chicken breast was fully marinated deeply till absorbed into the meat. Perfect cook of the fries, crispy, and just the exact amount of one person portion. The execution of the plate was pretty "inviting" as it is colorful, filled with steam vegetables and 2 slices of watermelon.

Pink Lotus flower. How is my photography level? Well, still an amateur, but I am trying to improve it :)
Live your life to the fullest. i was with my friend, the woman in black, playing and enjoying the shiny field inside the restaurant. It was very hot at that time and my sun block didn't really give full protection, so I was kinda sunburnt after that, with the red face like a boiling crab.

Indonesia is rich in culture and traditional food that attract tourists to go here. Being a proud Indonesian woman, I hope that the beauty of bali could give a change to our economics level to better.
Bali, a paradise, a heaven, and a home to all of us, the Indonesians, and I hope that the government could maintain its beauty and uniqueness. :)

For more than a year, I have been writing about food and fashion posts on this blog.
I feel glad that many people have recognized myself and of course my blog, and they are very happy of reading it. 

Once, i have received a mail that they asked me about some new places to celebrate birthdays, or anniversaries and stuffs. i am glad that they listened to my recommendations and they were pretty satisfied. I never thought that my blog could be this well-known to certain people this far.

At first, I didn't really know what to write, what to do, or what to talk about. I kept on trying and trying to blabber all the words that suddenly came up in my mind and voila until now, I am getting used to this. 

So, this post are just a gratitude to the readers of food-couture and I hope that you will stick to my new posts abut food and fashion.

so these are some of the supports that I received from my formspring account and I realize that there are people out there who always support me for what I wrote.

I may not be that efficient to blog daily as I need time for my works, university life, assignments, and studies. But I will try my best to at least update it once a week.

Thank you *big hugs*

foodcouture goes to bali (part 1)

Having a short trip to Bali was really like going to heaven in a blink of eye. Yes, it was short, very short period. The intention of going there was not to enjoy playing the water sports nor swimming, but to try new places that are not available in jakarta.

I was really surprised (or amazed is the right word, perhaps?) with the enlarging numbers of many new hype places in Bali, let's name some such as Rock Bar, Karma Kandara, El Kabron, etc. Those places are really very beautiful and yet the beaches are very clean and you really feel like in paradise.

For our first stop, it is Nasi Pedes Ibu Andika. For any spicy-food lovers, this a must stop-by place to go!!! Don't ask me about the spicy level, it can drive u mad haha

 Food selection  ... Very eye-catchy AND mouth-watering right?

 my food. consists of fried noodles, balinese spiced chicken, chicken floss, and quail eggs.

this was me on my way to turtle island.
PLEASE NOTE that: yes, I was still very fair at that moment, yet the next few hours I was burned as the weather was really pretty hot. My choice of bringing my yellow cambridge satchel was really a good decision, to bright up my outfit-of-the day for that looks. :)

Next stop: Karma Kandara --> sophisticated, glamorous and exotic place that should be put on the A-list. The beach is really unordinary! Clean, with blue-greenish water surface and you can see it from the restaurant.

 my drink! passion fruit with mango syrup and something haha. very refreshing, soothing, and quench your thirst. Accompanied by my sunglasses by Christian Dior.

I was wearing:

Giordano black top
Balenciaga Bracelet
Toywatch watch
Cotton on pants
Havaianas sandal
Cambridge satchel in yellow batchel
Christian Dior sunglasses
Tea labels for ClotchInc pearl necklaces.
