Jalan-jalan ke Festival “Perut” di Perancis? | #LVenFrance

Weekend kemarin aku dan suami datang ke Festival “Perut” di Perancis! Hahaha, aneh ya namanya? Tapi memang nama asli acaranya dalam bahasa Perancis memang seperti itu kalau kita terjemahkan secara harfiah ke bahasa Indonesia. Jadi, nama asli acaranya adalah Fête du Ventre, which means fête = festival dan ventre = stomach.

Yup, apalagi kalau gak berhubungan dengan makanan.

Jadi, event selama dua hari di weekend kemarin sangat ramai pengunjung, karena ternyata hobi atau aktifitas utama yang digemari oleh orang-orang Perancis itu ya yang berhubungan dengan gourmand/gastronomy atau kalau kita bilang kulineran a.k.a tukang ganyem, hahaha! Jadi, banyaaaak banget jenis-jenis makanan yang dijual di festival tersebut. Kita bisa memilih mulai dari appetizer, main course sampai dessert, semuanya ada di festival tersebut, (kecuali; nasi goreng, somay, ketoprak, dll, pastinya! Huhuhu). Soalnya semua produk yang dijual adalah lokal produk dari Normandie dan Bretagne region.

Mau tau ada apa saja di festival tersebut? Sila ditonton sampai habis vlog terbarunya!

Sekalian juga, bagi yang belum subscribe, jangan lupa di-subscribe dulu ya.. terus bisa tulis di kolom komentar kira-kira mau kita buat video apalagi untuk kedepannya?

Terima kasiiiih!

Bisous.

Summer fireworks in Geneva!

Well, hello for those who’s the biggest fan of fireworks! I am gonna show you beautiful pictures of me during Fêtes de Genève or Geneva Festivals on last summer 2016! I was very lucky, yes, because I got fellowship during the best season in Geneva, Switzerland. Why? Because you can easily found many nice festivals in the Jet d’eau lake and for being honest, the warm weather during summer much look alike in Jakarta or even some cases, even hotter in Geneva.

And to see the feu d’artifice or fireworks, it commonly held by August each year. The fireworks long last between 45-55 minutes which located in the lake. You need to be sacrificed yourself first, if you want to watch this and get a very strategic place, like what I did last year. So I came to the lakeside, since the afternoon like around 4 pm to get a place right in front of the lake.

And the fireworks itself, just started, at 10 pm.

Yes, it was an amazing experience, to wait for the fireworks for 6 hours in the lake accompanied with crazy windy during the afternoon, hahaha. If you want to get the best place to see the fireworks, you must go to the lake at least 3 hours advance, before the fireworks begin.

And, for the better, you can bring folding chair/cushion/pillow/bean bag or anything so you can sit comfortably and also the blanket, as it will start to get cold during the evening. Not to forget to bring snacks and drinks as you will stay there for hours!

So, enjoy the fireworks, guys!
