How I Shut Him Up When He Said There’s Probably Nothing Much To See in Bandung

Just last week, my fuck buddy friend from Malaysia, Patrick came to Indonesia. Initially, he was here for Djakarta Warehouse Project (DWP) and he asked me whether it was possible for us to meet while he was in Jakarta.

Since I still had to attend my therapy session everyday in Bandung, I told him that it was unlikely unless if I suddenly got a briefing schedule for Asian Games in Jakarta while he was here. It didn’t happen.

At first, he was planning to stay in Jakarta for 5 days, while the DWP event would only last for 2 days. I kind of laughed at his plan because clearly, he hadn’t done any research on it. So I asked him whether he would be interested to visit my hometown in Bandung instead. That, until he responded, “Sure, but I think there’s nothing much to see in Bandung, right?”

And that was when I got offended.

KFC Cho Chicks, an Alternative For When You Can’t Afford To Buy Main Course and Dessert Separately

Is there anyone who always has to go to an American fast food restaurant whenever they travel? Like, wherever you go, you just have to go to either McDonald’s or KFC?

Well, back when I was flying, there were times where I got flying partners who would choose American fast food chain over anything because they think the only halal food they could find is through this fast food chain.

Frankly speaking, sometimes I got annoyed traveling with people like this. Especially when they travel to Indonesia.

Like, what excuse do they have to refuse the local food in Indonesia? We are the country with the highest number of Muslim in the world. People will go ballistic when they find something haram in some food’s ingredients.

Speaking of American fast food chain, although I refuse to eat fast food in every meal when I travel, I also like to explore the variety of fast food in each country that I visit. My motto is simple: “When in doubt, choose McDonald’s.”

Are you planning to go to Indonesia anytime soon? Are you on budget to the point you can’t afford to buy main course and dessert separately for your meals? Worry not, because now KFC Indonesia has introduced a new menu: Cho Chicks, your favorite fried chicken mixed with spicy chocolate sauce.
