Situ Patenggang from the distance

I had to take my father to Bandung to my sister's house. After dropping my father there, I took my daughters, my sister, my nieces, and relatives to Situ Patenggang and Kawah Putih.

First, we went to Situ Patenggang. It is a lake that surounded by tea plantation. The location is closed to Kawah Putih. It was cool there. The breeze blew smoothly... We took a boat to bring us to explore the lake. The lake is small and has an island in the middle of it. We didn't take a long time there, because we wanted to visit Kawah Putih.

It was extraordinary, finding a lake that surounded by plantation. It was quite quiet, because there were not many people came. The climate was comfortable and suitable for picnic actually, unfortunately, we didn't bring our picnic stuff.

Hahaha...In Malaysia its also ok to ask personal questions! If thats the case , may i ask which part of Java are you originally from? My grandfather's side is from Kebumen and grandmother's side from Banyumas..my cousin went there last year but unfortunately could not trace any relatives - too long ago..! Is there any interesting site to visit in that area? She said she rode a bicycle on the sawah padi..
I guess all nasi timbel will be halal right? I'm just looking forward to eating that everyday I'm in Bandng..:D
In Malaysia most restaurants are halal unless it obviously looks Chinese...

I am a Javanese. In Java, it is easy to find halal food. If you are in doubt, just ask ;D Even it is not common to ask, but it is important for us. So, take a chance.
In Indonesia, it is common to ask where you are from, where you are going, whether you are married or not, etc.

The Sunda language is very different from bahasa Jawa isn't it? Are you Sunda or Jawa if you don't mind me asking? Would a stranger be able to tell who comes from which race?
Also I see Indonesian Chinese have names that sound Javanese - how can we tell if they are Chinese and if the food served in their restaurant is halal?
Thanks for the info..
