I hope I wasn't late to wish my dearest readers and friends "Happy Chinese New Year 2013"! ;)
In fact I was away from Malaysia for the past few days and at the same time for a short escape to Jakarta, Puncak Highlands and Bandung to celebrate our CNY this year.
So, anyone miss me here?? :D I think not much right? Lol
Well, We had a great time and tiring but enjoyable trip at Indonesia. I never expect that their country is such a develop one and tourism industry is such well organised as well and somehow, in my personal opinion, Msia should learn from them in terms of the well organised metropolitan city! Truly, both of the city namely Bandung and Jakarta open my eyes and just not to make more of you wondering, we also experienced the poor scenes and hardworking lifestyle of the Indonesian while passed by some of the outskirt areas and even in the city itself. At the first sight, I was shocked of what they did but when I thought further, they were acting so it's because of the environment and to strive to raise themselves and their family. :')

Talk about food! The style of cooking are similar to the Malays and most of the time we were having Chinese Indonesian cuisine, believe me or not, the food served at most of the restaurant are good and the elderies that I met during our tours keep praising about the various local food such as Bebek (duck) noodles (not street food) and even the Hong Kong porridge nearby our hotel taste scrumptious. In fact, the pork sate and fried carrot cake prepared by the food court at Mall Kelapa Gading, Jakarta taste amazing and couldn't agree more that the baked sweet potatoes outside the resting area taste yummy too! *Gosh*

How about shopping? I couldn't agree more that the shopping were great there, affordable priced good quality goods (depends where) and I actually bought varieties of items from blouses, dresses, accessories, souvenirs and etc that covers the whole bed of mine, my friend even teased me that those I bought are for Spring and Summer 2013. (lol) Somehow I do miss the mall that our tourist guide introduced "Mall Kelapa Gading" at Jakarta, which the only mall we have visited together with our cute tour mates. Imagine our craziness that started since 10.00 am to 7.00pm (if only we have more time), such a good place to shop at. Believe me, they say there are other recommended malls in,town that we could shop till we drop. Mangga Dua at Jakarta was not in my favourite list, the place is crowded and I found the accessories below over there and two pieces of batik blouse and dress.

The factory outlet at Bandung was okay for us, we found quality and fashioned tops there, at one time I bought five or six pieces from the same outlet - Lily & Roses.
I felt such an achievement that my luggage was full of new things. :D
The various tourist spot such as Safari Park, Valcano, Hot Spring and Ancol Ocean Park are such a success, I'm glad I was there and opps! I think I talked so much here and I think I better stop here! I'm still sick since two days before heading back KK and now even worst with additional with the ear pressure I had from my flight and still.
