Broke In Bandung

Learnt from my first time...the second time was much better...

Its an old city of Batavia in the midst of beautiful terrain of mountains...about 2 hours from Jakarta...have better atmosphere and seriously good for a weekend getaway...it was October 2009...along with good buddies going on for a great tour...surprise surprise...we managed to get RM70 ticket via AA...

This time around...the arrangement for the supir ride was booked in advance...it was split in between 7 of us...mostly this time around its all about shopping...i just tag along...spent three nites in Jalan Riau area...which is also famous for their factory outlets...but we went to the ones that has been stated as must go such as Grande...Rumah Mode...Toko 3...and of course Pasar Baru...i don't have to say much...but i do spent much...hahaha...


The whole day was filled with shopping...the girls lost themselves in the cheap prices...whereas i was more interested of getting good pics and good food...we had our lunch/ dinner in Pak Cik Met...ayam penyet ler...and also in Karamba...indulge in Bandung's famous brownies by Kartika Sari...and also pisang bolen...an exquisite cuisine that can only be found here...one thing i know for sure is...there's no mee bandung or air bandung in Bandung...hurmmm...

Second day was the day to go a bit out of the town...went to Tangkuban Parahu...learnt from past mistakes...i make sure i had my sunglasses on to avoid eye contact...hahaha...went to ciater...the hot springs...then went to Cihampelas...to had our dinner and walk around in CiWalk area...then thats just about it...


Packed our things and went back to Kuala Lumpur the next morning...when i flew in Bandung...my bag was only 6kg...when i flew out of Bandung...it tripled...as well as my credit card statement...now i learnt a new lesson...don't bring credit cards to Bandung...otherwise you'll be broke in bandung...hahaha...
