36 Hours in Bandung - Day 1

Jeeb sent me to Cheras around 12 midnight. Memang tido2 ayam jer tunggu pukul 3am nak pergi Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) Then me, sis and Jan took Jetbus at 4.30am. The ticket cost us RM8 each. Smp airport trus check-in luggage (web check-in dah buat earlier to get boarding pass) and Zect pon sampai about same time. My sis takde luggage nak check in but little that we know we still have to go through a document check-in just to get a chop on the boarding pass. Queue panjang pulak tuh, but luckily it was quite fast. Our flight ticket cost us RM258 each except sis who bought at later time cost her RM596.

We reached Bandara Husein Sastranegara Bandung airport at 8.30am. I forgot how small it was. The nap during the 2hrs flight was much needed because dapat recharged balik energy to keep me awake for the next few hours. Our chauffeur, Amin dah ready tunggu kat airport. Sweet!! Can't wait to start the shopping race.

First stop was Pasar Baru. Banyak kedai baru start bukak.

Amin arranged his assistant, Jajang to show us around and help us to carry the shopping bags. He's very pleasant and cute too! We bought lots of telekong...japanese cotton material is a must, telekong color2 wpon before nie tgk orang pakai tak minat tapik kat sini terberkenan pulak, and telekong untuk travel with material yang not too light and thin.

Then start carik kain2 ela. This kedai siap offered teh botol and snacks. One of my initial plan was to get some border lace. But biler pikiaq balik tak jadik sbb i don't really pakai baju kurung kain plain and even if i do i always end up beli siap because i don't have a favorite tailor yang boleh buat macam2 pesen baju.

We were there till 2.40pm, had a quick lunch in between. Nasi timbel kot nama set nie...sambal pedas berdesing but layan jugak hehe. Sambil nak jalan gi ke car park pon sempat lagik singgah macam2 kedai and grabbed mana yang berkenan. Basically our catch kat Pasar Baru were tunic tops, crocs, tudung, baju batik, kain pelikat etc. I leaved all the bargaining to my sis and the girls. Mostly aper yang dorang beli, i also beli cuma tukar2 color or design je.

We rushed to Holiday Inn to check in. Takot lambat sangat kang dorang release booking pulak. Zect booked a joint room and it was super comfy! So sempat lah freshen up and ready for our next race.

Amin dropped us off at factory outlet (FO) Jalan Dago. He recommended to pegi Ralph Lauren first sebab ada sale. Quite murah but kids section takde sale though.

Then masuk some of FOs nearby but tak banyak sangat barang tangkapan for me, most prolly due to some of the FO tak cukup aircond blast so i feel a bit stuffy inside. Apparently Seximo next to Glow has some interesting clothing line according to SIL but tak pi checkidout pon. Next time lah...

I love the decor frame kat Blossom nie, smallest size was around RM5. But the alphabets dah tak cukup pulak.

Then we went to Bali Heaven. It's like a one stop centre of everything Bali...food, massage, shops etc.

I opted for a full body massage...so badly need one because of my stiff neck. While my sis, Zect and Jan opted for reflexology. Then sempat browse kejap the 2-tingkat shop but we had to go because dah nak closing time. Found out ada kimono robe macam2 color i've been looking for ada jual kat sini! Since i just bought one (boring color), jadik hesitate nak tambah another one. Takpelahhh next time i guess...next time lagik *roll eyes*. Bahaya wehhh asik beli jer...Rumah Mode blom masuk lagik confirm tak cukup cash.

We had a nice dinner at Pak Chi Met. Walaupon kitchen dah tak amik order pukul 9 onwards, but thanks to Amin yg tolong arranged kan ngan orang kedai, we still can order whatever we want and in fact we had the restaurant to ourselves. Dine like a king hehehe. Set ulam gurame for Jan and Zect which cost around RM20 each. Me and sis shared dua lauk, chicken blackpepper and salted prawn. The dishes were finger licking good especially the salted prawn! Total dinner cost was about RM80. Kitowang kluar kedai jer trus dorang buat closing hahaha sian dorang kene tunggu. One thing i like about them was they never showed a hint "please laaa makan cepat2 kitowang nak balik!".

Lega biler sampai hotel ada wifi dapat ler facetime with the boys. Calculated how much damage for that day and aper yang terlebey aper yang tak cukup lagik because that was when we decided to go to Pasar Baru again the next day, lol! We started packing and make some space for tomorrow's loot. Hit the sack around midnight because these pillows were so inviting.
