Heaven on Earth: Kineruku, Bandung

An old house with an extraordinary collection
Baca-Dengar-Tonton, that's the tagline of Kineruku,  a cafe library at Jalan Hegarmanah No. 52 Bandung. Established in 2003 under name of Rumah Buku and changed its name into Kineruku in 2009, now it has 4000 of books collection, 1000 CDs collection, and 1000 movies collection, this place is a heaven on earth for book/music/movie freak. 

I once found this place via Kompas, my hubby and I still read  newspaper, yep, we're such an old-fashioned couple. When last week we visited Bandung due to a friend's wedding, out of the blue we just remembered this place and headed there with the help of Waze apps. 

Located in an old yet cozy house, this place is completed with merchandise shop, indie books/CD/VCD, and also good foods. We ordered Nasi Goreng Kencur, Mendoan, and Cucumber Ice, all were super tasty. So tasty even I didn't have any pics of them, the food arrived and suddenly they're gone, hahaha....

Kineruku sometimes organizes some programs relating to books launching, music concert or Nobar, watching movies together at its back yard or you can also borrow its movies collection and watch them there since it has special room for movie watching.

Btw in Bandung, we stayed at De Paviljoen Hotel at Jalan R. Martadinata (Riau),  if you just want to have a good sleep and enjoy cafes, restaurant and Factory Outlets, I guess this hotel is perfect since everything are within walking distance so you need not to worry about Bandung Weekend Traffic Jam.

Just a short weekend getaway but it turned out to be real good :)
