Gedung Merdeka di Bandung

Gedung bergaya art deco ini bernama Gedung Merdeka.Terletak di Jalan Asia Afrika Bandung, pada tahun 1895,awalnya hanya bangunan sederhana,namun mempunyai luas tanah 7.500 meter persegi. Orang-orang Belanda yang kala itu menjajah Nusantara dan orang-orang Eropa pernah menjadikan tempat ini sebagai tempat pertemuan mereka, disebut “Societeit Concordia”.

Pada 1921, bangunan yang diberi nama Concordia itu, dirombak menjadi gedung pertemuan “super club” yang paling keren dan eksklusif oleh perancang C.P. Wolff Schoemaker.

Pada masa penjajahan Jepang, bangunan utama gedung ini berganti nama menjadi Dai Toa Kaikan,digunakan sebagai pusat kebudayaan.

Setelah Proklamasi Kemerdekan Indonesia (17 Agustus 1945), gedung ini menjadi markas pemuda Indonesia menghadapi tentara Jepang. Lalu menjadi tempat kegiatan Pemerintah Kota Bandung. Ketika era pemerintahan pendudukan (1946 – 1950), fungsi gedung dikembalikan menjadi tempat rekreasi.

Menjelang Konferensi Asia Afrika, gedung itu diperbaikan dan diubah namanya oleh Presiden Indonesia yang pertama, Soekarno, menjadi Gedung Merdeka pada 7 April 1955.

Yummy Yoghurt Bandung

 Story: Susanna Sunarno

hhhmm healthy Yoghurt

Yoghurt. At first, I wasn’t so familiar about it. But, years ago I heard that Yoghurt made in Bandung was so popular for its delicious taste. So. I came all the way from Jakarta about 3 hour drive to Bandung to try the yoghurt. It turned out to be so yummy, healthy, refreshing.

March is a special month for me. So, drinking healthy drink that tastes so fun and energizing is a must for me. If you have difficulthy in the digestive system, well, you might try yoghurt. It really works.

Yoghurt is not a new type of drink. People have been making dan drinking yogurt for at least 5,400 years. Wow…   So, I might have just call it as the ancient drink?  hmmm…  ‘historical drink but not rare’ is probably the most suitable term for this drink, because you can find yoghurt throughout the world. It has a sour but nice taste. For those who drink it, please be prepared to receive protein, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12.

Wikipedia noted that : “Yoghurt or yogurt is a dairy product produced by bacterial fermentation of milk. Fermentation of lactose produces lactic acid, which acts on milk protein to give yoghurt its texture and its characteristic tang. Dairy yoghurt is produced using a culture of Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus and Streptococcus salivarius subsp. thermophilus bacteria. The milk is heated to about 180°F. to kill any undesirable bacteria and to change the milk proteins so that they set together rather than form curds. It is then cooled to about 110°F. The bacteria culture is added, and this temperature is maintained for 4 to 7 hours for fermentation.”
So, come on, try some yummy yoghurt from Bandung. They really fresh!
