Bandung Road Trip

Sunday, March 27, 2005

It was good friday day, and as planned, I went to Bandung.
So here I woke up at 5:30 as opposed to the planned 5:00, I was so freak out and I go to take my morning shower (GOD that was cold :P) as quickly as possible, took my well prepared backpack and literally ran to the train station to cue up for the 7:30 train (it took about 30 minutes from my place to the station).

When I arrived, at exatcly 6:15, there was this line on the yet open ticket booth, so I had to cue up till 7:00 (the time the booth open), during cueing, I met Shanti, well, people seems to know her as Moja, a RO player (maybe some of you know her) she went to Bandung as well, so we ended up cueing together.

at Exatcly 7:!5 and the tikecting booth open nad I'm at front, they're almost sold out, and I manage to get by with 3 tickets, for me, nita & annie, both of my friends from Surabaya who just came in the nick of time to go to Bandung together.

I wish I had a Camera with me at the time, as fate dictates, I forgot the damned Camera!!!! Luckily, I borrowed a smaller back up camera from my friends. but the Batteries ran out. Damn it!!!! When I got to Bandung, I spend the whole day without taking a single picture, not because I don't want to, but all the destination we go to don't sell the AAA batteries I needed! talk about bad luck.

We went to eat this Yamian noodle, it was quite good, although they have this weird menu that taste like they put too much soya sauce on it, far too sweet for my taste. After we all gather, we waited for Fenny to come and join us and then we went to Lembang, A place in Bandung famouse for its cafes and views (its located on the hills), we went to Kampung Daun first, it's a very nice place, a bit expensive, but nice place nonetheless, the guys were taking pictures except me, who can't.

Later that evening, I finally get some batteries for my camera, when I opened it, there was no sd card in it, (it turns out it have some internal memory in it), but when I checked, the internal memory was about full!! I immedietly contact my friends, who apprently forgot to backup all the pictures in it so I had to deal with only a couple of space left in it. Thankfully Nita have some space in its mmc card for her mobile. So I get to use them for the rest of the day.

The next day have nothing much to tell, we just spend our days driving around Bandung to buy some snacks, gifts, and food. Oh, and we get to visit this weird, not yet finished, mall, that have all landmark from around the world featured inside them.

The party was nice, simple, but nice, you'll see it in the photo album. Afterwards I get to catch a ride to Jakarta with a some of the gang to help Ping2 locate her destination for next week (She'll be visiting Jakarta along with her sister, and she never set foot in Jakarta before this, ever).
So enough for my rant now, I need to post the pictures :)
