The 2nd month of the year 2012 we start our trip again to Jakarta n Bandung for 3rd times 2 by AA. After landing at the airport, straight to the Gambir Railway Station to proceed our journey to Bandung by Argo Gede Express cost Rp7500 p/person for almost 3 hrs.
By the time we reached Bandung, it almost dark n raining. Managed to book at Kenchana Hotel just 15 min. from railway station for 2 nights at RM78 p/night + b/fast, cheap n convenient.
2nd.day in Bandung - Walked to Pasar Baru for my shopping...Kain Sulam Bandung. So many shops selling the same items with variety of choices n offcourse must know how to get the cheapest price with a good quality. For the 1st timer to Bandung, I think a little bit of confusion what to buy, choose and bargain coz so many many outlets with beautiful materials, it make me crazy as well. At last able to grab few pieces n by the time already lunch hr so must full the tank first before back to the hotel n solat. The foodcourt is just on the 6th.floor of Pasar Baru with lots of menu to choose.
3rd.day in Bandung - my luggage still look empty to load somemore so again walked to Pasar Baru
try to snip other thing reasonable. Floor by floor, then grab muslimah pink maxi for my daughter, maroon blouse for me n goodies. This time, I really spent my precious time in Bandung just for shoppingg....... enough for the day.
4th.day - left Bandung for Jakarta by executive train, I love to travel by train coz we can see the panaromic view of kampung along the journey, huge padi fields n pokok pucuk ubi, many Minang restaurants in Indonesia serve pucuk ubi as one of their side menu with sambal hijau.
Reaching Jakarta by noon n book a hotel RM80 p/night. Had dinner n rest...tired.
5th.day - Jakarta after morning b/fast, walked to Tanah Abang about 20 min. from our hotel.
This is my first visit to Tanah Abang...wow its display so many things under one roof, even though I came several times to Jakarta but still not enough time to come over here but now I did it. I spent few hrs n by noon we have to check out n packed for our journey back home. Safely arrived in KL by evening with almost 40 kgs of stuffs in luggage.
