Travel Log at Lembang and Bandung in West Java!! (Day 1)

24/6/2010


We are heading to Bandung in West Java w/ hubby's whole family for a family vacation, including both our parents, big brother, second brother, third brother and their own family!

Yes, it is kinda of a tradition of hubby's family that they welcome their family w/ their whole heart.

I went for a swim before heading off. 
Now I can't imagine how much weight I have gained for eating all the tasty food after this trip. ^^
Luckily, we are heading back USA on 6/30 and the first thing is to work on the ideal 6 pack of abs back on me!!! ^O^

The air pollution and traffic is horrible in Jakarta .....which means the traffic in LA. is not so bad after all!! lol
Do you see "the bed" underneath the big truck?......That's NEW for me!! ^O^


Photobucket
I am sure the grayish sky is not fog above Jakarta but @#$%$#*&^.... and we are over the mountain for some fresh air. 


After unpacking, we go to our first stop and the first activities....SHOPPING!

A Shopping center at Seanyan city.





You can find some international brand names which made locally in this shopping mall at Seanyan city,but rejected by the carriers and thus sold locally. (kinda illegal) It is not a very big shopping center but you are covered if you are hungry during/after shopping!

I bought couple cute earrings.....for souvenirs.  I will let my gal friends pick whatever I bought in this trip since I can't seem to make my mind what to bring back to USA. 


Photobucket
Those are all Marc by Marc Jacobs t-shirts.

Geez...... it is cute but fake. (I don't own nor buy any counterfeit. :))


After done shopping, it is time to please our taste buds and stomach. We reserved the restaurant in "the Valley" where you can also reserve houses while staying at Bandung.

You look so happy and relaxed! Those MBMJ shirts are cute! Love the way you make those Chanel flip-flops work with different outfits!
Yes, I'm the same when it comes to fakes!! I'd rather not own any Chanel than get a fake.

Love your photos, it looks liek such a happy trip!! xo

Yes, Ballet reporter, I wish I can travel every week too!! ^^

Hey, Mona: how are you? I am glad I only have to wear t-shirts most of the time cause' Jakarta is really polluted and don't like the fuss of doing mix and match at all...:P

Ah, Julia, you know, some 3rd countries do make some "living" by producing "fake" stuff but well, I just don't like some people even make "huge" profit out of fake stuff.
Thanks, I am heading home..yeah!!!

Still proper, Fendi leather skirt!

I worn my Fendi skirt to the city for dinner last night. San Francisco's weather is perfect for wearing leather anything.... It is almost windy all the time around the bay and I find leather is the best shield for blocking out brutal wind in the city. I even like it better than wearing a trench coat.  

Over the years I acquired enough leather jackets, leather mini skirt and leather pants but I'm lacking long leather skirt in my wardrobe. Not only is the fact that a good looking long leather skirt is hard to come by but also a thought that it might be cumbersome to move around in it. Hum..... but you know what, all these uncertainty is redundant the moment I see Fendi 2015 fall/winter runway leather long skirt with pony hair. Ha~ the right moment comes with the right item, I am grabbing it. If you know which one I am talking about, you know I got myself a double-shield wind-proof skirt. lol.... As you can see I'm very into Fendi especially Monster collection at this moment. …

This season, there is one more thing in my never-ending clothing wish list: A Cape!!!

I never really want ONE since it never occurs to me that it is a stylish staple in one's wardrobe. :P However, I know I am always enamored by its sophisticated look!! :) Maybe one day I will indulge myself w/ a classic piece like those on the mag.


Aren't those 3 capes classic n' gorgeous!!!!

I want to share a store coupon w/ you girls. This deal is better than its offered 15% off for joining in their email list. You just have to go to "store location" page and print out the coupon and use it in different stores if you have more than ONE item that you like!!! (Please don't tell SAs that …

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…
