Drinking Teh Botol, a popular drink in Indonesia and the first time I tried it I was surprised to find out its actually 香片 + sugar.
Morning breakfast @ hotel buffet.
Famous Indonesian Luwak Coffee or civet cat coffee that is expensive, imagine $35 for 5 sachets of coffee. They raise live civet cats here and almost took one out for us to pose with for pictures.
Visited the Pulosari Natural Hot Spring but we didn't make it far into the site. Our group stopped at an open fountain to get foot massages and ice-cream.
Just outside the Hot Springs is an open market. I think we bought some avocados and keropok. It's mostly winter wear, toys and grocery stores.
Our bus stopped by the side of the road to get more fruits. The fruits of choice here in Bandung seem to be bananas, avocados, pineapples and perfectly shaped pumpkins with the odd potato and sugarcane thrown in.
The highlight at lunch was that fried flying fish and soup, everywhere its soto ayam that is just amazing I can have it everyday. Added a coconut coz we've been seeing it around but haven't had a chance to eat it yet.
First factory outlet we stopped by was at a bean-curd making factory, so you can get a drink and bite to eat if you are not interested in shopping. $20 jeans are really attractive but I really do not need anymore clothes so I browsed the food stalls and bought this box of vanilla mochi for 32,000 IDR.
Second shopping stop of the day, Fashion World Indonesia RWI where they were advertising 50,000 IDR leggings and 99,000 IDR T-shirts. Not bad, until I found these designer perfumes at less than 100,000 IDR each. Great time to start a perfume collection.
Last stop at Rumah Mode Factory Outlet, as advertised throughout the airport. This place is beautifully done up like a resort, with several eateries and one huge shopping center. I didn't get anything inside Rumah Mode outlet, but I did stop by the food center to take a look and ended up buying a whole bunch of food items like my aunts. All this for sgd $25.
Our last dinner here, local Indonesian food and I am beginning to sense a trend. Deep fried tofu, coconut rice, super hot sambal, fluffy oily scrambled eggs, raw veges with rojak dip, crispy deep fried fish, satay. Well, tonight we had chicken or maybe its pigeon given the number of raw pigeon meat stalls we saw at the market. This time around, my mom bought some fresh raspberries off a street vendor and the restaurant kindly washed it and served it to us after our meal.
Last minute purchases from Alfa Mart 24 hours, before heading back to the hotel room to pack. The pharmacies and super-marts here are well stocked. Facial wash, body wash and these pain relief plasters are almost 1/3 the price compared to Singapore.
Last minute shopping at the airport duty free, original Ralph Lauren at 50% discounts and more, the T-shirts are 199,000 IDR.
Back at Changi Airport, I got a mini bottle of rose moscato $11.50. We're allowed 5 mini bottles or 1 big bottle of wine, tax free.
