Bahasa l English
It doesn't feel like it's been almost 4 months I stopped write the articles since at this time I never visited any restaurant and we know it is also not a good time to invite people to go and hang out in cafes or restaurants. Much sad news where the impact of Covid-19 is very affected on businesses including food & beverages. I also heard the sad news that my friends who worked in this industry also had to experience a reduction in income or even a dismissal.
But on the other hand, there are also positive things where a lot of people got a chance to start a new business since got more time during work from home and get ideas to do something, especially food business.

It's just that in my opinion, some sides look old-style, classic touches and kind of '90's especially the colors of the carpet, but the marble pattern on some si…
