West Java Specialties

Many people visit Bandung, the capital of West Java province, to pamper their taste buds. You'll be amazed with what Bandung has to offer. From various food sold on street vendors to haute cuisine, every visitor will be able to find something to their liking here, in Bandung.

Sundanese (the people living in West Java are called Sundanese) has tempting refreshments. Sundanese food tends to be bland yet tasty unless you add sambal dadak (chili and other ingredients grinded together) to your food. If you're looking for more spicy taste, just add this sambal dadak with nasi timbel (steamed rice formed into a roll inside a banana leaf) and other specialties. This mouthwatering treat is too good to be missed! Usually sour vegetables soup (sayur asam) is accompanied by nasi timbel.

People with sweet tooth might fancy pisang molen (literally
Sundanese Food
means, molen banana), Indonesian traditional pastry filled with banana and cheese. For a variation, try brownies kukus (steamed brownies). Es cendol, made of blended/grinded rice, palm sugar, and coconut milk, is delightful on a hot day. While for a colder day, you might want to taste bandrek or bajigur.

Bandung also offers various milk products most notably, yoghurt. Basically there are two kinds of yoghurt in Bandung the thin one, and the thick one (French style).

Hot snacks ala Bandung are widely sold throughout the city. Among them are gehu-toge tahu- (beancurd with beansprouts and vegetables filling), pisang goreng (fried banana), cireng-aci goreng- (fried tapioca), and many more. You might be interested in trying other snacks such as, nangka goreng (fried jackfruit), peuyeum goreng (fermented cassava, fried), nanas goreng (fried pineapple), and so on. Ketan bakar (roasted sticky rice) and jagung bakar/rebus (roasted/boiled corns) are also recommended.

Nasi goreng (fried rice), although not originally from Bandung, is also a favorite. The ingredients vary, according to people's preference.

Cakue, a dish made of flour dough then fried, also worths a try.

Bandung also has other kinds of restaurants, like Padangese (food from West Sumatra, very spicy in taste), Javanese (sweeter in taste), Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Western,

KH. A.F. Ghazali, da’i kondang yang sangat dicintai oleh umat. Dalam ceramahnya, KH. A.F. Ghazali lebih banyak menggunakan bahasa Sunda. Beliau selalu menggunakan bahasa yang mudah dicerna oleh masyarakat, pandai dalam membuat analogi yang bisa dimengerti. Guyonannya segar dan cerdas. Tidak heran kalau kasetnya laku keras.

Menurut Ibu Hj. A.F. Ghazali, kalau mau ceramah di suatu daerah, terlebih dulu beliau selalu mengadakan observasi. Bagaimana gaya bicaranya di daerah tersebut? Apa mata pencaharian pada umumnya? Bahkan tanahnya pun tidak lepas dari pengamatan KH. A.F. Ghazali. Jika tanahnya gersang, karakteristik penduduknya akan berbeda dengan yang tinggal di tanah subur. Demikian kata Ibu Hj. A.F. Ghazali sambil memperlihatkan koleksi kaset-kaset ceramah KH. A.F. Ghazali.

Rehabilitasi Citarum Bebani Masyarakat

SOREANG, (PRLM).-Bank Pembangunan Asia (ADB) mengucurkan pinjaman baru untuk rehabilitasi Sungai Citarum dan anak-anak sungainya senilai 500 juta dolar AS (sekitar Rp 5 triliun). Namun, berkaca kepada pinjaman terdahulu, projek baru tersebut dinilai hanya menghamburkan dana dan membebani masyarakat.

"Pemerintah Indonesia meminjam dana ADB 500 Juta dolar AS untuk Integrated Citarum Water Resources Management Investment Program (ICWRMIP)," kata Sekretaris Komisi C DPRD Kab. Bandung, M. Ikhsan, di ruang kerjanya, Kamis (14/5).

Pinjaman tersebut, kata Ikhsan, untuk melakukan efisiensi penggunaan air irigasi sehingga bisa dialokasikan untuk penggunaan air bernilai ekonomi tinggi seperti untuk rumah tangga dan industri. "Projek itu juga untuk meningkatkan pasokan air bersih konsumsi Jakarta dan ajang uji coba penerapan konsep pengelolaan wilayah sungai terpadu, Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM)," ujarnya.

ICWRMIP memakai skema pendaan baru yakni Multitranche Financing Facility (MFF) sehingga dewan direksi ADB dapat menyetujui seluruh tahapan projek. "Projek ini juga memberikan pinjaman kepada pengelola air minum Jakarta PT PAM Lyonaise Jaya untuk perbaikan pelayanan dan memperluas jaringan," ucapnya menjelaskan.(A-71/A-50)***

Kenalkan Budaya Sunda dengan Payung Geulis

TANGAN-tangan mungil anak-anak dari 12 taman kanak-kanak di Kota Bandung tekun menyapukan kuas ke payung Tasik yang menjadi media kreasi bebas. Tiap anak mendapat satu payung Tasik berukuran mini yang masih polos untuk dihias dalam lomba menghias payung tasik yang diadakan TK Avicena di Jalan Cikutra III No 19, Bandung, Minggu (10/5).

Payung yang terbuat dari kertas dengan rangka dan batang dari kayu dan bambu ini biasa disebut payung geulis.

Dengan semangat tinggi, anak-anak ini melukis payung dengan gambar bunga menggunakan beraneka warna. Cat air yang mengotori tangan mereka tidak membuat bocah-bocah yang masih polos itu terganggu.

Lokasi lomba di tempat biasa siswa TK Avicena bermain membuat anak-anak merasa nyaman, bahkan mereka merasa sedang bermain, bukan berlomba. Dalam satu jam, para peserta menyelesaikan pekerjaan mereka menghias payung.

"Dengan mengikuti lomba ini, mereka diharapkan mengetahui ada juga payung tradisional dari kertas, yang dulu sering dipakai oleh eneng-eneng (gadis Sunda)," kata Ketua Pelaksana Lomba Menghias Payung Tasik sekaligus Kepala Sekolah TK Avicena Nia Komala Minggu (10/5).

Menurut Nia, tujuan dari lomba ini adalah untuk menggali potensi anak-anak TK di Kota Bandung sekaligus memperkenalkan kebudayaan Sunda lebih dini. Lomba tersebut diikuti oleh 20 siswa yang sudah diseleksi dari 150 siswa.

Andriani (37), orang tua peserta, mengatakan, anaknya senang sekali ikut lomba ini. ''Anak saya suka mewarnai, tapi sayang saya tidak boleh ikut melihat dia mewarnai payungnya," ujarnya.

Salah satu peserta, Yuti Syarah (6), siswa tingkat B dari TK Al-Irsad, memilih menggambar jeruk untuk menghias payungnya karena dia mengaku senang dengan buah jeruk. (yatni setianingsih)

Bandung, Tidak Cuma Punya FO dan Kuliner

BANDUNG — Kabupaten Bandung merupakan daerah yang terkenal dengan berbagai macam wisata, seperti wisata belanja di factory outlet (FO) dan kuliner di Provinsi Jawa Barat, juga memiliki banyak potensi wisata yang masih belum tergali, terutama wisata bumi.

"Kabupaten Bandung memiliki potensi wisata yang menawarkan keindahan alam dengan berbagai macam sejarah di dalamnya," kata T Bachtiar dan Budi Barahmantyo, penulis buku Wisata Bumi, Cekungan Bandung yang diluncurkan dalam pembukaan peringatan HUT Konferensi Asia-Afrika (KAA) ke-54 di Gedung Merdeka, Jalan Asia Afrika Bandung, akhir pekan kemarin.

Pada diskusi buku tersebut kedua penulis memperkenalkan potensi-potensi wisata bumi yang berada sangat dekat dengan orang-orang di Bandung, yakni sekitar Kabupaten Bandung yang pada masa prasejarah merupakan cekungan dan dalam perkembangannya banyak ditemukan peninggalan artefak dan bukti-bukti geologis peninggalan zaman prasejarah.

Menurut Bachtiar, dia mulai menjelajahi alam Kabupaten Bandung sejak meninggalkan kota kelahirannya di Pameungpeuk, Garut, tahun 1974. Saat itu ia kehilangan aroma desa, seperti aroma tanah, hujan, dan kabut.

Kemudian ia mulai menjelajahi alam dan mendapati banyak sekali kekayaan alam bandung di dalamnya. Ia masih ingat bagaimana rasanya memandangi alam dengan tetesan embun di ujung rumput dan sinar matahari yang terbias oleh embun.

Pada tahun 2000-an Bachtiar yang juga seorang dosen di Fakultas Ekonomi Univesitas Langlangbuana mengajak sejumlah guru untuk melihat keindahan Goa Pawon. Di sana pula ia menemukan banyak artefak zaman prasejarah dan bertemu dengan Budi. Ternyata Budi memiliki hobi yang sama dengan Bachtiar dan sedang meneliti bebatuan yang ada di Goa Pawon.

Dia sengaja mengajak guru karena guru dapat menceritakan kembali kepada murid-muridnya dan tiap tahun akan berganti sehingga tiap tahunnya semakin banyak siswa yang memahami keindahan dan sejarah cekungan Bandung.

Bahctiar dan Budi sama-sama intens menulis di media massa tentang bagaimana pentingnya konservasi alam di Kabupaten Bandung. Sampai akhirnya tulisan-tulisan mereka dibukukan oleh Lembaga Geologi dengan judul Geowisata, Sejarah Bumi Bandung pada tahun 2006 dan diterbitkan kembali dengan revisi menjadi Wisata Bumi, Cekungan Bandung.

Bachtiar dan Budi melalui bukunya mengajak semua masyarakat bandung untuk dapat menemukan kembali Bandung dengan segala keramahan masyarakat dan keindahan alamnya. Diceritakan dalam buku bagaimana catatan perjalanan dan pengalaman berwisata di alam Bandung. "Hal yang bisa dilakukan dengan perjalanan setengah hari mungkin Goa Pawon, lagi pula Goa Pawon adalah tempat yang paling menarik," kata Budi yang juga dosen geologi di ITB.

Budi mengajak para pemilik biro wisata mengembangkan potensi wisata bumi tersebut. Budi, Bachtiar beserta rekan-rekannya bersedia membantu dari segi interpretasi biologi. Masih banyak potensi lain yang bisa digali, contohnya retakan banjaran dan bukit kapur yang ada di Padalarang.
