2. Sit back and enjoy the melody
Whether you are relaxing or working at home, put on some music in the background to make your activities feel more enjoyable. And if you also have an urge to explore foreign wonders, we have some videos that offer the best of both worlds. Immerse yourself in the sound of dreamy electronic music delivered by Bottlesmoker and watch as they play their music behind various alluring landmarks, starting from the marvelous Situ Patenggang in Ciwidey, Bandung, West Java. The combination between the ethereal melody from Bottlesmoker and enchanting sceneries from the lake are perfect for starting your day. Next, they head out to the verdant mountainside of Ranca Upas, situated not too far from Situ Patenggang.
Once again, we are presented with another enchanting view of the lush greeneries around the area as Bottlesmoker showcases their magical beats. Departing from the majestic Ranca Upas, the journey took Bottlesmoker to perform inside the stunning crater lake of Kawah Putih, still in Ciwidey, Bandung, West Java.
Meaning White Crater in English, the place definitely lives up to its name. In this video, you can see the main reason why the lake was named so, particularly from the pale hue of waters inside as well as the sands that encompasses the lake. Finally, we are taken beyond Java island to the charming island of Bali. This time, Bottlesmoker serenades you from the exotic Capella Ubud. Surrounded by flourishing nature, the serene five-star resort is located in Gianyar regency. From the video, you can see that Capella Ubud offers more than just a window to the charming sceneries of Bali.
3. Make some comfort food from home
Staying at home wouldn’t be fun without trying out some comfort food from overseas, especially ones that originated from a country with diverse cuisines. If you feel thirsty in the afternoon, try making an ice-cold Es Teler at home! This Indonesian frozen dessert can definitely quench your thirst in the heat of noontime. The combination of the succulent taste of the mixed fruits, the sweetness from milk and syrup, and the refreshing ice will take you to cloud nine the moment you sip a spoon of it.
And If you’re craving for some savory meals, try cooking a warm plate of Indonesian fried rice! Also known widely as Nasi Goreng, which literally means fried rice in the Indonesian language, this tasty dish is very easy to make. All you need is just a few spices, sauces, as well as a bowl of rice. Moreover, you can also modify this tasty dish by adding a couple of finely chopped proteins of your choice such as egg, chicken, beef, shrimp, or tofu.
