...Indonesia...Day 2...Jakarta/Bandung

bajaj...another form of public transport in Jakarta
Bandung later...this is one of d many factory outlets
this he/she entertaining machet(ed) Bandung motorists
After a 1 nite stay, we cheq out n headed for Bandung. Along d way, we stopped by somewhere in Rawang (yes...they have Rawang too) area to witness Koeswardi (a PhD product of KAED) project of tree replanting along d Jakarta-Bandung hiway. Once in Bandung, we 1st visited d DSE factory outlet in Dago...this place has a lot of choices of branded jeans.

Seems like we r here during rainy season as it was raining quite heavily intermittently. But that has not dampened d nyopping spirit of group members...on n on they raided one factory outlets after another...hihi. D nyopping adventure was put on hold only for meals...both lunch n dinner were a Padang affair but @ different restaurants. To call it a nite, we finally ceq in into Karang Setra hotel (but not as nice as Golden Boutique though...)

facade of Golden Boutique hotel...

found this across d hotel...dahsyat punye specialisation...klinik mata n lemah syahwat...fuyyoo

ceq out n Bandung here we come...

stopped @ this R&R about halfway to Bandung...d R&R is similar to PLUS's but with a bigger musolla. D cafe kiosk is just a small part of d R&R.

somewhere in Rawang...listening to Koeswardi explanation on three replanting along d hiway...n one of its intentions is to mitigate any landslide from occuring

here we r in Bandung, alhamdullillah. But d machet is not dissimilar to Jakarta's

...hhmm...don't really know if Madonna n Ms. Monroe r in d know that their images r being used...

lunch @ Simpang Raya...this is 'es teler'...very rich in taste

exiting d restaurant...n u'll be ambushed by d many traders...'murah aja Bu/Bapak' is d fav tagline...

a typical Dutch bungalow design completed many decades ago n now being used for many functions...offices, businesses, residentials, etc. ...but with minimum redesigning of d structure... N demolition is out of d question...unlike in M'sia.

among d retail outlets...this is Cascade...

...which is connected internally with Heritage...

...n with a nice waterfall deco inside...may be to lull d customers of all d money that they r spending...hihi

husband/boyfriend/supir can rest at d 'Balinese' seats while waiting for d significant others nyopping in Cascade/Heritage. I lepak for quite some time here while my Sayang was 'Cascading n Heritaging' around...

then, a break for dinner time @ Dapur Sang Kuriang...a nice restaurant with nice taman @ d back

some comments on d of them is from Amirul of M'sia

...cookies for sale...d patung, may be for sale as well

ready to go to hotel...n these traders kept trying their luck

d group arriving @ Karang Setra hotel...n waiting for d key. Tak tau la how many juta (rupiah laa) oredi spent collectively...good for local economy anyway...hihi
