‘Boleh pak, bolehhh?’ is the phrase that we kept hearing when we were shopping there. Every single shop! Haha
So, last Friday, my husband and I went on a vacation to Bandung, Indonesia. This was actually a school trip organised by my husband’s school, so I just menyibukkan diri to join them. Bandung is a shopping paradise, especially for kain lace and kain pasang, rugi la kalau tak ikut kan? Hihi
The two-hour flight took place at 6.30 a.m. and we reached Bandara Husein Sastranegara Bandung Airport at 7.30 a.m. local time (Bandung is one hour behind us so we were blessed with that one extra hour to shop, yeay). On the first day itself, we went straight to Pasar Baru Trade Centre to do what women do best, SHOPPING! I had a mission here. I was given a responsibility, untuk carik 10 kain pasang untuk team SKPJ untuk Sambutan Hari Guru Peringkat Muar. 2014. They wanted a ‘uniform’, so that’s what I was here for, along with other reasons too (personal shopping hahah).
We still couldn’t checked ourselves in because it was too early, so we put our stuff in the lobby and went straight to Pasar Baru! Here comes the shopaholic, but before that, I needed some fuel, especially my husband a.k.a my banker. Haha
Now, to complete the mission! We went to this store recommended by Cikgu Nazim, husband’s boss. The workers there were very friendly and helpful. They had varieties of fabrics, patterns, colour combinations, beads, sulam and etc! Senang cite, memang rambang mata laaa…
So, long story short, after hours of choosing, I finally settled for these two.
Besides kain pasang, I also bought some tudung bawal and telekung. Memang berjuta2 rupiah habis, but owh well, it’s once in a while, there’s no harm. Hehhehe. We went back to the hotel, which was Fave Hotel in Braga to take a nap, before going out again at night. I was so exhausted and sleepy since I hadn’t had enough rest on the night before, so after checking in, I went under the quilt and boom! Zzzzz..
After a few hours of good nap, we had dinner at this restaurant called, Bebek Garang (Seriously, bebek garang?? Hahah). The food they offered in the menu seemed delicious, but sadly we didn’t have chance to try since most of them were sold out. So we tried these.
That’s it for the first day! Will continue again to tell you about out experience in Gunung Tangkuban Parahu, next time. Babai!
