Travel

I had a great time with my family and friends in my homeland country Indonesia, It is such a short visit,but I spent some quality times with them in two weeks, I wish I have more times but they understand I have to go back to US and back to work :)



In my small town I still see traditional transportation for short distance called becak= pedicab/trishaw
or bridge= horse-drawn two-wheeled cart.

On the third day we go to the beach PANGANDARAN with all my family my mom,brother and sister and their family, I'm still jet lagged at the time but sure I do had a great times.





You will see this view in the beach no bikini or swim, they just play with water ;)


This is a traditional Sundanese restaurant in my home town,they serves Sundanese foods ( west java ) in  old traditional home style ,short table in the middle and we sit down on the floor to eat and enjoy the lunch with my high school friends.






I use to live in Bandung the third large city in Indonesia,which is about 19 miles from my parents home, I can be able to do a day trip to meet friends and shopping.

We like to walk around the city, this time we walk to south street seaport before dinner, This is what I love about the city, I can grab a food or drinks in the street and just keep walking about anywhere and if we get tired, take metro back :)


My friend Tom, cooked dinner for us comfort food for the night.

The next morning,ready for our road trip, drive from NYC to Cape cod, Massachusetts.




Arrived in Provincetown MA, this is our second time to stay in Snug cottage bed and breakfast, glad to be back after two years.


On the way to Ogunquit beach,Maine before check-in, we stop in the Stonewall kitchen and shopping in the stonewall store. So I probably will use some ingredients I bought in the next blog post sometime.









Arrived in Ogunquit Inn Maine, such a beautiful small beach towns, and charming bed and breakfast.


Walking in Perkins cove along the beaches is the best thing to do, such a beautiful beach view.


Lobster rolls's vendor is everywhere, this is one of them, to-go order only! just find the bench around the beach and enjoy the dinner  :)
