Depot Mie Bandung

A place that i will remember till the end of my life (cieeeee….) unless i get amnesia… ( but i think it would appear in my dream hihihi)… Cos it’s part of me…
Actually had a shop @ carrefour with my friends yesterday, suddenly remind me about long time a go, while i still live there…
I do remember the street till now it was Jl Diponegoro 98, Kertha Wijaya B-20… See… (but now it’s been a clothes store)…

When i passed the meals part… i saw a sack (karung) of Powder, Bulled rice… then i remembered… I used to buy those kinda things for Depot… We made our own noodle.. (which is still the best noodle for me, Naripan will be the 2nd hehehe), there were also Siomay, Batagor (which is the real Baso Tahu Goreng, not like Batagor in Binus ^^ ), Otak2… Nyummy… Then the Fried Rice… Nothing can be compared with it ^^
Since High School (actually since i had a driving license for car) i was trusted to go alone… But I used to go with Mom or Bro… we went to Makro / Tiara grosir…to buy the material to make all the wonderful meals.. (even till now some of my friends said…Hey mar… i miss your dad’s batagor, noodle huehuehue…)

I remember how dad or bro or the helper made the noodle…. the ingredients were mixed into one big basin… Then a long bamboo will be used to make it thin…. After that the machine took its part…
I remember how mom made the base material for siomay, batagor, otak2… Though sometime it’s my part to clean up the tenggiri… yaiks at first impression… interesting at second impression… but boring at last…more over when i saw soooo many tenggiri waited to be cleaned up = =’ what a boring part…
Or the hard part to cut the onion… huuhuh..why those tears could not stop…
Or the hard part to separate the chili from its stick.. (cos we made the chili… all the chilies put into hot watered then it will be blendered…then boiled it up… Huaaa…what a hot air if it’s done)
Or the sleepy part to fold the tissue that will be put on the table…
Or the best but confusing also risky part to stand by at the cashier hihhi…just a sit… numbering all the order, count it..then wait for the customer’s request…

It just a small place… one building that can only served 7 tables with 4chairs for each…actually the seventh was for the family to stay or did everything else (like me…did my homework hihihi) it only used if really needed (which means the 6 tables were full)

So many special guests…there were a guest from the office in front of our depot, a special guest from canada that used to come once a year…talked with dad…ordered Bear with salt… the one who pushed me to have morning exercise (- -“), a guest that used to come once a year on holiday eve…. with their own special request… or a guest that order sooo many otak2 to be brought to German.. (boing..can i be the one who broung the otak2 to be there huahuahahuahua)

The most remember moment is when we opened the depot..just the 4 of us..cos all the helper were off.. (that was one day before Nyepi)…we ran it, just the four of us..hohooh..so tiring but interesting… i took care of all the dirty plates, glasses, bowls (cos i like to play with water hahaha) and drinks order… bro went up n down (the kitchen was a half at the second floor) mom stayed upstair…and dad took care the noodle order..and cashier.. and finally we closed earlier..around 5pm i guess cos we wanted to see the Ogoh2 hehehe..it was called Pengrupukan day (one day before Nyepi)… For those who want to see Balinese culture…better be to see this ^^..interesting one…

The unique one from our depot was…how’s the meal delivered for the non soup meals ^^… Since we had 2 kitchens..the 1st and the 2nd floor kitchen.. the 1st was for the soup meals…all the noodles and drinks order… The 2nd was for the non-soup…
Above the cashier..there was a hole that connect the first and the second floor… if the order was ready to be delivered..then, there’ll be sound (ex : Nasi goreeennggg…I like this part…shouting the meals that went down hahaha) then the basket with meals in it will be going down (manually…not like in Petojo ^^ ) the funny part if the rope was loose…. so.. one of us had to go down to bring up the basket hihihi…
Or when someone unintentionally pushed the basket in so it fell down…  poor the one who stand below it… * Bammmm… * Oopss..sorry then… ^ ^

I remember, there was a time when one of our employee (I used to call her : “mbok” heheh that’s the way we call older girl in Bali) got injured while she was using the mill for the tenggiri (for otak2)… so many bloods from her hands…my mom asked her to put her hands in wastafel… and asked me to take a look for her..made sure that she wasn’t collapse because loosed so much bloods…
Then i saw her hands….boing boing… spinning spinning… hey..it’s me who got dizzy..haiya… from there i knew… i can’t see lot of bloods when people get injured… (thank God she was fine)

What an unforgetable place, since i lived there since i was in kindergarden till high school… it’s a pity that finally we had to close it, because of dad’s health continued with mom’s health…It’s really hard to let it go.. but that’s the thing that had to be done on that day… all the memories, the machine, the pan, the big rice cooker… the big wok, a big freezer (sometimes when it was so hot..i wonder to be in there hihihi… but since soo many meats there…the smell errr… u know laaa ^^ )… everything…
Though cleaning up the tenggiri, cut of the piggy, chicken, onion, chili, slicing the cucumber, cleaning up the things…were sometimes boring, but now i realized…it made me learn a lot about everything… about running a small family business…
My friend said…your parents really great..they made a family business like that, where the kids were part of it… so we used to stay at home, it’s not hard for them to keep on eye on us ^^…also became a trustable helper for the business hihihi…

Thank God for giving me a chance to live there…to know lil bit about meals ^^
