JKT-BDG TRIP PART 2

AFTER PART 1

Bandung, well..what can i say..a haven for shoppers. 

Friday 1st March 2013:

we arrived in the evening, just enough time for us to have dinner. after hours on the bus from Jakarta, i couldn't care less if they served me fried biawak (lizard); i'd still eat it and claim that it's delicious. one of my mistakes when i went on this trip was not stocking up on food/snacks because i completely forgot that we'd be on the bus most of the time. so during the bus ride, i was hungry and all i could do to shut off the hunger was to sleep. 

when we got to the hotel, my roomate and i saw a pamphlet advertising massage services. we decided to call two masseuses to our room; and they told us the normal charges are 60,000 rupiah per person which was 20 ringgit. but after much coaxing from the two ibuks/masseuses; we settled for a special package that cost us 80,000 rupiah per person, equivalent to 27 ringgit. BUT IT WAS THE MOST HORRIFYING THING I'VE EVER HAD I DON'T KNOW WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO GO FOR A MASSAGE. suffice to say, i swore to myself never to put my body through the agonising experience again. i woke up with red marks all over my body especially on my back, so did my my roomate. that was when i found out they used coins to scrape our backs to "buang angin".. oh the horror. 

Saturday 2nd March 2013:

woke up with a headache even after the buang angin massage; and got ready like a zombie. our first stop was to a volcano crater named Tangkuban Perahu. it was named as such because of the shape like a capsized boat. well.. that's a freaking big boat if you ask me. but unfortunately on the day we arrived in Indonesia we learned that the volcano was showing some Sprite; thus we couldn't go up due to the sulfuric content in the air. but we did get to take pictures at the foot of the volcano for about 10 minutes before we were ordered to go down -.-
the beautiful scenery on the way up. macam kat forks siotttt

saw a pakcik riding his horse up to the mountains (eh..volcano).. gagah perkasa!

Right after the 10 minutes visit to a volcanic crater which took 2 hours of a bus ride, we went to our next destination which was the famous SARI ATER HOT SPRING. coupled with the hot sunny weather, i am still bearing the brunt of it with a sun burn. 

it was pretty relaxing if you minus the extremely sunny weather. here these ice cream dudes will offer you a foot massage if you buy their ice cream.but...nothing comes free. and sadly that was what happened to a couple of my Korean colleagues because they didn't know, and proceeded to buy EVERYONE ice cream. they got ripped off and ended up having to pay 8 ringgit per ice cream, and there was about 30 of us! that made it RM 240! so guys, be careful with your purchases/services, make sure you double check/confirm whatever that has transpired from your transaction.

SEE..MANA TAK KENA SUNBURN :\

fact: the source of the hotspring was from Tangkuban Perahu Volcano. 

should have sat here instead -.-"

after the stop at the hot spring, it was SHOPPING TIME!!!

first stop..PASAR BARU! there were so many textile shops i almost pengsan right there and then. but i came out victorious! managed to get a beaded lace and silk chiffon for my solemnization dress, plus some border lace for the shawl, and all was below 300 ringgit! oh my god. aside from that i managed to buy telekungs for myself, my mum and my future MI; two sejadahs for hantaran and some gorgeous indonesian batik for my mum and i. 

taken from my roomate, nurul's camera. see that white shopping bag? that was only HALF of what i purchased. 

the environment was crowded, hectic, noisy and vibrant. since i was so pumped up over shopping i didnt really mind. :B

after Pasar Baru, the tour took us to other shopping destinations in Bandung, but by then i was already losing my interest; since i managed to get what i came here for. HAHA. some places named Grutty, at the Cihampelas walk, and TOKO TIGA. ok, i bought 3 pairs of skinny jeans there, and two polo shirts for ayah and Faliq. but that was it. wouldn't say it was worth it though. Some items at Toko Tiga looked fake, and the Grutty place looked quite dodgy (just my two cents).

Dinner was awesome though, it was at this really nice old bungalow converted to a restaurant. 

Praoe Sea Food. 
ok fine. the picture didn't do justice to the food. BUT IT WAS REALLY GOOD!
i like the patterned tiles :)
ok. galok sangat tu. nampak sangat tourist. 

came back to the hotel with a full and happy stomach. TIME TO SLEEP AND PACK!!

END OF DAY 2!
