Bandung -Jakarta (Part 2)

Assalamualaikum and Hi everyone! Found some mood to continue update my new entry. So here we go :) Ermm..what is the first thing that cross to your mind when you heard the word Bandung? Perhaps air bandung?mee bandung?or....... Shopping?ngee~

Well, other than Pasar Baru, tempat shopping yang banyak attract tourist was Factory Outlet (FO). If you want to find some branded cloths, jeans, shoes, bags, the FO will be the shopping paradise for you. But kena pandai pilih la..They were certain brands that most likely fake. They mixed in with the other brands to make them look like real rejects.huhu

There were many FO in the Bandung city but the most popular one were along Jalan Riau, Jalan Dago and Jalan Setiabudi. The Secret, Heritage, Cascade, Terminal Tas, Rumah Mode, Oasis were among the FO shops that I could remember..


The Secret

Well, to be honest, I didn't buy anything at all from the Factory Outlet. huhu. Why so? Hmm..Because I didn't find the price like what I imagined.Thought that it would be cheap but the price was only sama je kalau beli kat Malaysia..Shopaholics may be differ with my opinion but for me they were just..hmm ordinary. Plus, if you come with lots of money that's a different story lah kan :P

Then, we went to Bandung Indah Plaza. BIP was the oldest shopping mall in the Bandung.. We were just do window shopping inside there jalan-jalan..and infront of the BIP there was a Merdeka Arcade Factory Outlet, while along the road they were many street vendors and hawkers.

Bandung Indah Plaza. Can you see the traffic infront BIP building? Its frightening. >,<

Recently, Bandung had just opened new shopping mall known as Paris van Java..tapi tak sempat nak ke sana due to time constraint. :(

After spending much time for shopping, then its time to search for dinner. We chose to eat Bebek that night. Do you know what is bebek? While Malaysian people call it duck, Indonesian call it as bebek. Bebek was quite famous in Indonesia. They were many stalls tepi2 jalan that serve bebek garang, bebek penyek, bebek crispy..haha.funny :P 

Hm..when the food was served, I can see my friends' face was like saying " Can I eat this and not get sick?".haha.. However, we respect the food and ate the bebek slowly to enjoy the taste..:)
We enjoy the song too..well, not bad :)

Waah..perut suda kenyang..Ok.Our last destination that night was at Universitas Padjadjaran. Since our tourguide were students that came from that uni, thus we took this chance to visit there before we went home..:D

tadaa..! everyone with muka penat masing2..

On the next morning, unfortunately, few of my friends were having diarrhea and stomach flu. We guess due to food poisoning and of course we were blaming that bebek.huhu..:P Soon after out tourguide knew that some of us having uncomfortable flu, he immediately bought us isotonic drink and paracetamol to relief the pain..

Isotonic drink 'Pocari Sweat' instead of 100Plus

That morning, we were actually planning to have a horse riding activity. Yah! I admit that I was very excited because that was one of my childhood dream! (kesian kan bunyinya..?)But unfortunately, as we arrived in front of the horse riding park, we were told that the place was closed for that day..sobs.='(  (kesian lagi..) 

Therefore, we changed our tentative by visiting Strawberry Farm..Stroberi pun stroberi la kan.. hee. Well, This Strawberry Farm let us pluck our own strawberries and charge according to the weight and we can get the strawberry ourselves at Rp 60,000/kg..

Everyone was ready to pluck the strawberry! err..belakon je tu. Bakul yg berisi stroberi hanya satu shj..

Strawberry farm. Nothing special..just like Cameron Highlands

Basically, our focus were just on shooting photos.he

Strawberry juice..fresh from the farm! Yumm..:)

All the berries were available.Blueberry..Rasberry..except Blackberry.hihi..and the berries taste sweet and best to eat in the same day. I have bought two packets of the berries :) 

Enough with Strawberries, we were then continue our journey to Kampung Gajah. When I heard the name at first, I thought that it was a large place to maintain and train the elephant. But there was no elephant whatsoever here. Its just a name after all.

Many activities or outdoor games you can try here like ATV touring, Skyrider etc.There were also kids playground like Spongebob's House, Teletubbies House and the scenary was great! 
 We were sliding downwards!

Teletubbies House.The house was too small for three of us..

When visiting here, be sure to spend enough money because in Kampung Gajah, many things that you will spend a little inside but really very satisfying :)

Okay.I guess that's enough for now..stay tuned for Part 3..
Thank you for reading this entry!:)
