This verse from a famous patriotic song sums it all in a very apt way.
Keranamu Negara Malaysia
Outlets around Jalan Riau
They sell those yummy Amanda Brownie Kukus from the boots of the cars
We hit the usual shopping places. Pasar Baru was the first stop. We got so, so many pieces of telekungs. Halfway through our shopping, we had to call our driver to carry our bags of telekung into the car and then we continued shopping.
Our 1st day damage...some guests of the hotel "tegur" us on our shopping.
Other shopping stops were Rumah Mode, Summit, Herritage (for clothes) and DIAZ (for handbags). Surprisingly this time I didn't go gu-gu-ga-ga in DIAZ as compared to the last time I was there. I only got a small FENDI toiletry bag. Jupe & Kak Ariza got a few pieces for themselves.
The bags in DIAZ...but I didn't get any...
What was interesting with our visit this time was our lunch trip in Kampung Daun. It's a beautiful place where locals & tourists frequent for good local food. The concept was small open "pondoks" in the well kept green area complete with river & waterfall running across the place. It was so peaceful and relaxing. We had to climb all the way up to our designated eating "pondok". It was worth the climb...coz the food was really, really good.

Our food for the day....
After two solid days of shopping and eating it was time to leave Bandung. Our flight was in the morning. It is always the challenge to keep our luggage at its minimum weight. Air Asia only allows 15kgs of free luggage. After weighing our bags (yang dah beranak tu...) we exceeded about 8kgs in total. We had to pay about RM120 for the extra. Well...getting better this time compared to the RM300 we paid the last time.
At the end of the trip, everyone was happy. All the stress went out the door...at least for a little while. On board the flight home...a similar thought was on everyone's mind....WHERE IS THE DESTINATION OF THE NEXT TRIP :-))
Picture taken at after midnite..on our 1st day of camp program...Me & Lartz...so poyo looking already.As for me and my team...we are DEAD exhausted. Just another day to go...We really have to give it a FULL GO!!!
