It’s that kind of afternoon: the clouds has smuggled all the sunbeam right after mid-noon, and once again it was heavy metal rain in most parts of Bandung, even before 2 in the afternoon. But then; it was THAT other kind of afternoon also, when too many people wished for another Sunday best, and miracles were just simply ought to happen.
The rain settled down only an hour after the sudden flooding, and the shy sun peeked behind—then, there on the newly rejuvenated Cibeunying Park, the party begun.
Some said the massive drizzle came from the jinxing number. Yes, it was our 13th Surprise Stove, but we couldn’t bother to buy such irrelevant story. Three hours before dusk, soft winds were singing their warm embraces and people began to collect in the park. We invited many of our dearest folks, from those exuberant young gals (how to make this remark sounds less pervy?) from LOOKATS Market, bringing their other gals and foods and face-painting fiesta instruments; Lemon Tree with their innovative (yet secretive… hmm) lemonade recipes; Eat On that kindly delivered us many free variants of their poutine and stuffs; up to Selaras Guest House and Resto, awarded best tenant from the last Keuken event, setting a grill for a free round of their infamous Sate Soemo.
Our lovely mobile kitchen also served as a showcase platform for modern-socialist cooks from Sharee and two girls from Tamara that somehow owned very familiar faces. Strange. Anyway, they nailed cooking their nice curly fingers-shaped churros!
And so, approaching the warm evening, there were already many isles of tablecloth for groups of people and their picnic tools, there were balloons around some good-looking guys playing pleasant music. We truly heart this very best Sunday. See you all then on our hopefully best of the best, top of the pop, king of the hill Sunday, Keuken #4 The Jolly Camaraderie next June!
