the sausage also has a wide range of taste, so we can choose according to our taste

hotel or castle?

Bandung is a city about three hours drive from Jakarta, and the hills are a popular weekend retreat for Jakartans to escape the hustle and bustle, the pollution or the humidity that is Jakarta. Bandung is also known for shopping, thanks to its multitude of factory outlets offering (mostly) almost perfect pieces of (mostly) genuine designer labels.

So where to stay? Several international chains do have properties in Bandung but there are many independent hotels as well. Of course, lots of things are best when they are open...hearts, minds, arms (legs?)...and of course hotels. The G H Universal first opened its doors in May 2008 and is gradually slowly opening bit by bit, with the 'full, grand opening' scheduled for some time in 2009. When I stayed there much of the hotel was functional, but there were some gaps. Overall, though, it has promise.

The G.H. Universal is up a hill in central Bandung with a view over much of the city. G.H. stands for Green Hills, apparently, so it rather appropriate.

I arrived by road and, after the final battle against traffic, turned into the gate. To the left, on the wall, was a notice partly obscured by low hanging branches of a tree, announcing 'Soft Opening in May 2008'. To the right was the hotel, four stories high, with a design that was an eclectic mix of faux-colonial stlyes - Georgian windows, Victorian domes and almost Romanesque layout, finished in a rather odd shade of grey. The actual entrance was incongruously floor to ceiling window the length of the lobby.

Inside, the lobby lounge was again a mix of styles, with large, brown, stuffed armchairs reminiscent of Victorian libraries contrasting with modern, straight-lined sofas and the black marble steps and blackcurrant walls of the reception area. The windows opposite the entrance look out onto the pool, which is in a central courtyard with accommodation on all four sides.

great movie to starting this year

sherlock holmes movie, staring by Robert Downey Jr (sherlock holmes),Jude Law (Dr.Watson), and Rachel McAdams (Irene Adler). Based on novel 'Sherlock Holmes', 'Sherlock Holmes Last Bow' is a collection of short stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle which tells of the exploits of Sherlock Holmes football as a detective in London and surrounding areas. This series became the cover of a series of short stories of Sherlock Holmes. Published in English under the title His Last Bow in 1917, the contents of this book includes short stories about Holmes, who circulated between the years 1908 to 1913 plus one story written in 1917.

two thumbs up!!!!

the story:
The film begins with the arrest of Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong (Body of Lies, impressive) who uses his mysterious dark powers to rule London. Holmes and Watson get back to business and together track down the culprit and get him arrested. Just when Holmes feels that he has solved the case, news of Blackwood getting back from the dead surfaces leading the famous detective and his sidekick to yet another mind-bending journey of solving a supernatural puzzle this time around. Complicating matters is Irene Adler (Rachel McAdams), Holmes’s ex-flame, who returns to London with hidden motives that adds to Holmes’ list of suspicions.

Ritchie’s adaptation portrays Holmes’ eccentricities as a genius perfectly but somehow also makes him look more of a street fighter than a detective. The huge number of stunts induced in the film makes it more of an action packed James Bond flick and less of a suspense thriller which it should ideally be. The stunts are shot superbly (watch out for the scene where Holmes envisages his stunts before he actually does it. The stunts are shown in slow motion and are cleverly shot) but its abundance and thus lack of relevance is what puts you off. Holmes is also shown spending more time in fist-fights than solving his cases.

Coming to the story, seeing Holmes solve a puzzle with his great mind is what you expect but what you get is meaningless conversations between the characters instead and then stunts in between when the director feels the pace of the film has slowed down.

The supernatural plot is predictable and thus disinteresting. Addition of Rachel McAdams as femme fatale Irene is another drawback as she doesn’t exude the sensuality her character demands. Rachel and Robert have zero chemistry!

Set in 19th century London, the film lacks the Victorian finesse that the era demands.

In spite of the odds, what does make Sherlock Holmes worth a watch is the chemistry between its lead actors. Ritchie gets his casting bang on. Robert Downey Jr as Sherlock and Jude Law as Dr Watson are superb. They keep bickering like a married couple throughout. When Watson decides to move out of their shared apartment and live with his fiancĂ©e Mary instead, you sense jealousy in Holmes’ eyes. If Holmes is a genius yet an eccentric brat, Watson is a protective partner who helps Holmes balance his life by making him look sane to the outside world. Robert and Jude both exude unspoken emotions for each other thus creating a subtle homo-erotic tension between their characters. Ritchie’s typical dark humour and witty one-liners work too.
