Bandung

Bandung was something else. Not that I'm saying it in a bad tone or anything, but I have imagined it to be so different. Well...I blaim the ability of my mind to fantasize too much I guess. I went there with another 8 cool peeps, 4 of which I'm very familiar with, and another refreshing 4, are colleagues of Nik's. Very easy to get along with. They stayed for 4 days and 3 nites. I, however, had the misfortune luck of a non-confirmed employee, who can only take 1 day off, so I stayed for a nite shorter than the rest (thank God for weekends). Nevertheless, still very happy with the 1 day extra of leisure, away from work. huhu.
Arrival at Bandung - Bandara Husein Sastranegara Bandung Airport. Don't you just love how artistic the Indonesians are? I love their airport's name.
Nurul posing at the lobby - Sukajadi Hotel. Easy access to good Sundar food, just 2 doors down. We had our first lunch there, then rolled up our sleeves and went down to business - shopping!!!
First day of total retail therapy. I bought 4 tops, a jacket and 2 shoes in 1 evening. This is Rumah Mode at night. Very beautiful, price of clothing not so bad, but I prefer Mode Plus for more branded items choice. But here, do check out its cafe for its yummy Avocado Blended. Nice...

At the Atmosphere; happening restaurant with the works

In front of the hotel entrance

On the way to Tangkuban Perahu...Took us a few hours gak...

Tangkuban Perahu and the mountains surrounding the area...Lawa kan?

Adorable couple...posing at the many many natural bongsais you may find at Tangkuban Perahu

Volcano...You can see the smoke coming out of the mountain..

Nasi Timbel - Sundar specialty recommended by a friend...cocok skali dengan tekak saya Pak..

Saza being all sad to leave Bandung..hehe...at the back you can see Bandung's largest mosque

The place to get your taste of Nasi Timbel...setap!

At Dago Valley, another very exclusive restaurant everyone must check out...Food-wise, we're not so sure, coz we went for the coffee and dessert only...yumm..but bit pricey

In conclusion...I am so going back there for more shopping...I don't think I'd shop for clothes anywhere else from now..
