October 27th, 2013. I just found out that it was The 6th National Bloggers Day. I was invited by Omar Niode Foundation (ONF) to an event called Bloggers Super Sunday Brunch at The Dharmawangsa. It was an event to gather 10 bloggers to get to know each other, share knowledge, and discuss about culinary. I was so thrilled because it was so exclusive hahaha..
The Bloggers Super Sunday Brunch was opened by speech from Mrs Amanda Katili and Terzi Niode from ONF. Then we introduced our blogs. So excited to see other bloggers. I always love to meet new people. 😀
The Omar Niode Foundation, based in Jakarta, Indonesia, was officially formed in 2009 in memory of Omar Taraki Niode (1984-2009), and is dedicated to social and educational purposes.
Legalized by The Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, Indonesia under Decree No. AHU-850.AH.01.04, this non profit organization began its work with an endowment fund from Omar’s hard earned savings and aimed at generating and providing resources for programs and activities in agriculture, food, and culinary arts.
Initial investment came from Omar’s hard earned savings and all donations from colleagues, friends and families. Inspired by the assistance that Omar received while he was a student in Davis, we have programs in Omar’s name that will go on and on. Each year, his name and short biography will be distributed amongst faculty, staff, students, and individuals who are the recipients of scholarships, awards, and donations from Omar Niode Foundation.
We sat at long table in Majapahit Lounge area. Executive Chef The Dharmawangsa, Chef Vindex Tengker, joined us and gave us a little tips how to try all 40 foodstalls in this Super Sunday Brunch without getting too full hihihi. He said, eat just a little in every stalls, not too much. Just the right portion to know the taste. Eat the unusual food, not everything. Chef Vindex told us that Super Sunday Brunch only 3 times in a year. On Easter Day, after Eid al-Fitr (1 month or 2 months later), and on Christmas Day. Hmm.. cannot wait this Christmas. 😀
Then, we walked around to see so many food and desserts and everything. I was drooling all over the place hahahaha.. Trust me. You don’t wanna see me in the drooling version. I was like a child in candyland. Couldn’t describe everything. It’s just like Willy Wonka in his chocolate factory. Like Hansel and Gretel in the candy house. Like Alice in Wonderland. Btw, the champagne was free flow. Ohmaigaaaahtttt..
