This 3 days 2 nights short trip had been planned like a year ago. AirAsia went crazy selling mad cheap tickets and lead me to craziness too that I instantly bought tickets to Bandung. I told my colleague that I hate AirAsia because they charge for everything. They say their fare is cheapest but try adding baggage, meals etc, tadaaa still expensive T______T So I found the secret for real cheap one. Buy now for next year trip! LOLOL everybody already know that la you stupid Vujie.
From Miri, we took midnight flight and arrived at LCCT around 2 am. Stranded at LCCT waiting for our early flight to Bandung at 6.40 am. I was seriously tired by that time. Didn't have enough sleep because from work, went straight home to pack up things then went to airport only to find out that our flight was delayed wtf. Can't find nice spot to take a nap there some more T__T
One horrible experience at LCCT international departure. I went to one of the toilet only to find out that bowl was full of shits fml really spoiled my morning. I never knew Paleolithic still alive till that day wtf. It's so simple lah to flush after using it *sigh*
I would love to warn you that I might include all Bandung pictures in this entry. We didn't take many pictures there, we were focus on the shopping HAHA.
Beautiful scenery of clouds on morning flight to Bandung
Like pro or not?
Well, that's the only pictures from our day 1 HAHAHAHA. We dropped our luggage at the hotel (we stayed at Utari Hotel, Jalan Dago) then we went to Pasar Baru for textile shopping. They say the fabrics are mad cheap here. For me, it depends on the quality itself. But it's true that they are all up-to-date. And I think they're cheaper in Bandung compare to Malaysia. I'm not a fan of baju kurung, so I don't really know about the latest fabric and price comparison. I do know only a little bit hehehe. Two shops I would suggest here are Seroja Jaya and Vogue. Both in Lantai 2 if I'm not mistaken. Especially the Seroja Jaya. They were so kind they offered to send our stuff to the hotel because we bought in bulk and it was burdensome for us to take it ourselves.
I wanted to buy lots of fabrics for baju kurung and telekung actually, but I kinda dislike that place. Too crowded and plastic bags sellers following you nonstop *sigh* that was annoying. Even the boy at Seroja Jaya whispered to me, "Just ignore them." Smokers are everywhere even it is inside the mall, ugh I feel like dying. I can't hold it any longer and told my bf to go back hotel. Enough for Pasar Baru. We took random taxi outside and the driver charged us for F-ing Rp50,000 from Pasar Baru to Dago. I knew he took advantage of us, but I was too tired to argue T__T When I told my bf and compared the fare with the first driver who drove us to Pasar Baru, he said, "Ehh you are right..." pfffttt. I hope the driver who took advantage of us live happily :)
Redeemed our sleep for a while at hotel then went out again to factory outlets along Jalan Dago. We didn't buy anything because nothing caught our eyes (and our wallets wtf).
The next day went to Trans Studio Theme Park. My bf was not feeling well that also made this Bandung trip less fun T___T We chose to pay more for VIP tickets so we don't need to queue longer #likeaboss. It's useful if you have limited time to spend, like us HAHA.
I am as tall as fairies. Let me be fairy too!! Pink fairy if you say yes lol
HAHAHA it looks like I purposely take picture with the black shirt guy. This Dunia Lain is actually a ghost house. I knew already there will be human pretend to be ghost wearing ghost costume, come out from nowhere to make you afraid. That black shirt guy's girlfriend who sat in front of me, screamed because one of the ghost walked next to her while my bf and I laughing at the back HAHAHA.
Too bad I had ulcer on my lip that time *shit why must you come when I want to travel* and that's how I cover it lol
Cihampelas Walk. Because they say this is one of the best spot to shop. Walked along the street and felt meehh~~ what is this just like pasar. The only attractions are the figurines in front of shops. The Ciwalk mall is quiet okay lah. Only took lunch there and went to Rumah Mode at Jalan Setiabudhi. Oh wait. We also went to Toko Tiga, famous for jeans. Nothing caught our eyes too. Sigh what is this why we didn't find happiness here wtf.
This is one of the best outlets I would suggest! Clothes and bags are nice and lots of choices compare to others. Besides I would suggest The Secret, Terminal Tas, Oasis also. I didn't go to Heritage so I can't say more.
Excuse my super exhausted face -.-"
To conclude, I think Bandung is not really a place for me. I might coming back here only if I want to buy nice and cheap fabrics. The traffic is totally horror. Only Indonesians can drive well. If you give me car keys and ask me to drive there, I would die instantly wtf. I suggest to hire a driver in Bandung because it is more convenient and in my opinion, Bandung is not pedestrian friendly. Outlets are located far to each other. If you happen to go to Amanda, try their choc brownies. Very delicious I must say.
Bandung trip ends here. I would love to blog about my Bandung hauls if I had extra time after this XD
