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.

Those are the counterfeits which I didn't expect to see.....but there they are!

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.

My favorite dish...Soto Ayam which my mother-in-law taught me how to make it already!!

Not so much of a exotic palate???!! 
Not a problem!! Simple fried rice for my Dad.

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!!!
