Python Language

Finally, I decided to create a (YouTube) video. This time, it is about the Python programming language. In this video I talked about why Python is the language of today. (Not sure 5 years down the line.) Enjoy the video.


Unfortunately the video is in Bahasa Indonesia. When I have the time, I'll make an English version of this. Come to think of it, there are already tons of videos on Python in English. I don't think you'll need another one. I guess, I'll make more videos in Bahasa Indonesia then.

Coffee

I love coffee. Correction, I LOOOVVVEEE  coffee. There. I made it bold to show how much I love coffee. If you read my other blog (the Indonesian one), you might already know this.

As it happens, Bandung - the city where I live - is the best place to get black coffee. You may not believe this, but if you are here, you can see that every 50 meters there is going to be a coffee shop. Most of these coffee shops are using local coffee, Jawa Barat. Although many of them have coffee from other parts of Indonesia (and even outside Indonesia).

To show you the variety of coffee that we have here, here is a list of photos of coffee that I've just got recently. (Less than 1 month.) These are just samples. I have more.






As you can see, those coffee are from places in Indonesia. I tend to like coffee that are bold. Thus, I like the East part of Indonesia. These days, I like Flores and Papua.

Most of these coffee are still beans. You get grounded ones, but most people prefer to have them in beans…

Will Blog Again

Hi folks,
It has been years (not really) since last time I blogged here. (Mind you, my other blog - the Indonesian version - has also been slowed.) The classical "I am busy" excuse is being used here. While this is true, I think I should not use it. ha ha ha.

Now, I am planning to write more. Create videos and stuff. Basically, I want to generate more creative content. We'll see how it goes.

Cheers.

1st in 2018

I know I made too many promises; more posts for this blog. My excuse is a classic one, too busy. (And I've got other blogs to maintain too.) What can I do? I'll keep on making promises. ha ha ha. This year, it should be better than last year (2017).

Another thing I am considering is to create video blog. If this is the case, then this blog will have a lesser time. ha ha ha. Anyway, the vlog thing is still in a consideration-state. It may take some time to actually becoming reality. We'll see.

Anyway, this is my 1st post in 2018.

Can't Make Good Coffee

I love coffee. Black coffee without sugar. The good thing is that Bandung is a heaven for coffee lovers. There are a lot of coffee shops with local coffee beans. These days, I love coffee from Flores.

But the thing is ... I cannot make good coffee myself. Ugh. Every time I make one, it's too dark (bitter) or too soft. I don't have a coffee machine, although I have aero press and V 60 kits. I love coffee made manually. If the coffee is made by machine, that it is actually made by somebody else (or something to be exact).

Back to the original topic, making good coffee. I was told that the important aspect of making coffee is the water (the exact temperature and stuff). Or, the way to make the coffee (brew, filter, etc.). But, I just cannot make good coffee. I think it has something to do with my hands ... ha ha ha. They are too cold. ha ha ha.

Anyway, let me enjoy this (bad) coffee. Made it myself. Good morning ...

Rejected by AdSense

While updating this blog, I got notification that I should try to use AdSense. Ok, I said. Let's give it a try. It, then, gave me a form to register. I filled the form and waited for the confirmation email.

Email came in and said that my request was rejected. Oh well. The thing that I don't understand is that it seems Google AdSense thought that this is a new blog. Need more content, it said. Whoa. Seriously?

I guess I have to try again next time (don't know when).

Coffee Shops in Bandung

Last night, I was in a brand new coffee shop. This is just one of the newest coffee shops in Bandung. I can safely say that every month there is a new one in Bandung. (I could stretch it to every week.) Bandung is a coffee shop city.

Last night was the second time I went to this coffee shop. The first one, I went there a few days ago. It was weekday and not many people were there. I ordered a local coffee, Flores.



It was great. In fact, it was perfect.

Last night was different. It was Saturday night and it was packed with young people. I guess they found out that this is the place to be for this particular time. So everybody and their friends were there. (This is incorrect though. Neighboring coffee shops were also packed!) Food was a little late. They ran out of the Flores coffee. Ugh. So, I ordered whatever they have at that time. It came late. Yes, this is the down side of being popular. Fortunately, the coffee was good! So, it canceled whatever un-coordination that happened there.
