The Delutional Society

It's such a blessing to have an ability to see. We can enjoy the beauty through a pair of eyes.  It's a pleasure!

But the story becomes different when you measure some abstract things with eyes.

For example:

You meet a friend who wears an original Chanel bag, and you give her a respect.
You greet a folk who bring a little old dusty tote bag he sewn himself and laugh at him.

And they both are humanbeings.  So what's the matter?

We're drowning in the society who give each other's value by looking at the belongings. By separating the people who drink Starbucks and kopi tubruk to different social classes.  We really think that friends that pay your dinner more often is better than the other who may be honest about havin' a hard time collecting coins for some public transportation.

Okay.  It's beyond crazy.  We really forget how to be a human.  We were born naked.  We die without bringing a ten million handbag.  This industrial era has been so delutional for all of us.  But it's not just the system to blame, but our basic greed.

We literally spend the whole life to own everything in our sight? It's not even bearable! If we really want to have all the assets in the world, okay, we will be exhausted and it won't be enough to do that in a lifetime. You have to be reborned milliion times! :))

So. Let's. Stay. Human.

flowers. effortlessly pretty. more beautiful than all the clutters we collect just for the social status' sake.

Veggie Report #infinity

I miss that Sunday organic market at Flamboyant.  Mmh.  

That picture sums up my daily meal.  Leaves, fruits.  Add some carbohydrate folks like cassava, sweet potato, potato...some rice and veggie noodles or pasta.  
Yes, baby, vegetarians are not living with ONLY lettuce.  :)) 

It's strange that I survived my ovo-lacto vegetarian life anyway.  Strange but sure.  I wrote about a delicious chicken spinach just on 2013 and in the middle to end of 2014, I talked about going to a wedding and got nothing to eat but salad! Hahaha!

I choose mushroom over salmon all the time.  Even on my last visit to Braga Permai, I had this bulky Risotto Al-Funghi and almond corn soup...while I usually pick a salmon steak.  I no longer crave for some chicken broth and assume it's just a water.

And, yes, I have no difficulty in choosing my to-go-lunch. I'm good with sliced carrots, potato, any available greens, blanketed (?) in kebab wraps, hide some mashed beancurd inside, pretending it's a cheese.   When I need something creamy? Oh, I'll go with coconut milk with mung beans porridge or black glutinuos rice.  :))

Oh, and, by the way, I discovered a new vegan café in town. The name is Fortunate Coffee - Jalan Kebon Sirih, Bandung. Indonesia.

So happy!
Here's some snapshots of that lovely restaurant.

the 'duh, I can't eat any of this'-free menu ! 

soothing window with vegan bread offerings in those baskets

creamy vegan fettuccinne -- light and guilt-free

my pasta and mom's pasta--both are yummy!
too bad i forgot to mention to give me 'straw-free' drinks to the barista.
