..of being a woman

I hadnt update here regularly as i updated my wedding blog..but anyways…

I had a lot of thinking…

I’ve been lazy..i’ve sinned..i’ve break down promises..i meant another while i said another thing, my head do much thinking than my hands..(i mean i cant express it on paper)

I think that marriage will make me a better person..insyaAllah.

Its a huge advantage and bless being a woman in Islam..really

I mean…the sin that a daughter did is on her fathers and after marrige..its on her husband so is that mean woman never responsible for their own sin?

But another way around, woman does have a big responsibilities that not many woman can keep it well, including me..for instance to jaga aurat

excerpt from cari forum:

Seorang wanita boleh memasuki pintu Syurga melalui mana-mana pintu Syurga yg disukainya cukup dengan 4

syarat sahaja:

– sembahyang 5 waktu,

-puasa di bulan Ramadhan,

– taat suaminya

– menjaga kehormatannya.

Seorang lelaki perlu pergi berjihad fisabilillah tetapi wanita jika taat akan suaminya serta menunaikan
tanggungjawabnya kepada ALLAH akan turut menerima pahala seperti pahala orang pergi berperang fisabilillah tanpa perlu mengangkat senjata.

MasyaALLAH…sayangnya ALLAH pada wanita ….


Bandung Day Two

We had room service breakfast sent at 8am. They offers either fried noodles or sandwich with tea. Ok lah just to alas perot..Then we straight to Pasar Baru by angkut route Cicadas-Elang. Pay only Rp2,000 per person.

inside angkut

with tante that helps us find Pasar baru from where angkut drop us

Pasar baru directory

Toko laris lantai 1 recommended most by forumers, near the elevator

Total damage for telekung..Rp434,000 for 6 pieces of telekung..try to bargain like crazy but this bapak really tough maa..I bought the weird, unique looking telekung that is hardly to find in Malaysia as such awning telekung, 1 piece telekung sarung, travelling telekung, and hantaran telekung that includes sejadah n bags. hee love it

the telekungs..or in indonesia they called mukena

Citra textiles Lantai 2 we borong the most kain. My sister did some shopping at D'fashion also

Makan time!!

pa Chi met ikan gurame bakar and the stall in front of pa Chi Met

lantai 6 is the Pasar Baru Food Court..hefty kind of Indonesia food but i choose Pa Chi Met recommend by most forumers also.. We order Ikan Gurame bakar set komplit ( they do not sell individual orders, must be with rice and mineral water price RP32,000). Meanwhile we also order kinda Ayam penyet style but different name in front of PCM, for 3 person only Rp40,000 with drinking water summore…

bought bandung T shirt at Pasar baru only cost Rp15-25,000. At airport around Rp100,000!

Wedding favours at Dasar 2

The wedding favour is more cheaper outside of Pasar Baru, near the shop row, but I am tired already, decided to just buy it here..A bit pricey but still reasonable.

Went out from Pasar baru around 5pm…Dah macam kerja kat Pasar baru ni, from 9-5..hehe..We took Gemah Ripah cab(metered) to went back to hotel.. barang sangat banyak, xsanggup naik angkut. Cost around Rp25,000.

Solat, mandi and stuff then went out again to Chiwalk. Since it rains heavily, some of the plans does not went out well. We do not dine at D’Cost because of the electric circuit breakdown along Jalan Setiabudi, paris Van java road also banjir a bit..only Chi Walk are accessible and still got electricity.

did some shopping at Yogja supermarket, Chi Walk

we bought J.Co and pulsa ( topup card )My sister’s maid ordered Kicap bangao?? and Indomee??..Since its different from what is sold in malaysia, she borong 1 carton box..

Aya inside the supermarket.i love the parasol deco up on the wall

Ok tidaklah sanggup saya bergambar begini kalau di KL..hehehehe dgn benda xhalal pulak tu

we had our dinner here

Mula-mula nak makan di ES teller 77 but nearly close and some of the menu not available..So here we go, the food…so-so..Total damage Rp90,000 for 3 person. The deco is very nice.

Aya bought simpack XL, it is under axiata, many recommend this pack loh. Went to Sports FO near Chi Walk to see some of the stuff…then went back to hotel by Gemah Ripah cab..cost Rp20,000.

At hotel…packing all the stuff, sucking inside our bag because tomorrow we’ll be checkin in another hotell!!

Bandung Day One

i hate that Aya always had this tourist shot!

Me, My sister and my friend, Aya. 3 woman trying to make it big in Bandung..cea poyos kan..trying to be light-adventure travellers.

Flight 0945 from LCCT

Arrive 1200 at Hussein Sastranegara Airport

Took an airport cab to the hotel(cost Rp40,000 quite expensive).. From my itinerary, i thought i would had a chance to go to Gazebo but since it closed at 1pm and people would be jammed pack, we head to hotel first.. I brought a big empty luggage ( Takkan nak berjalan bawak luggage pula kan). the taxi driver were confused about the road to the hotel (its quite downtown, not in a city center). It took 10-15minutes to get to the hotel. I choose Hotel Ardellia because of the price, easy transportation and recommendation by forumers from CARI. The rate? Rp220,000 for standard room B with air-cond, hot shower, breakfast. Very warm welcome from the receptionist and the staff.

view from the top..the little koi pond

After solat and such, we headed to Jalan Riau (actually  i totally lost my itinerary and the two peep just follow me..hehe). We use angkutan kota which is the main public transport for Indonesian. The charge? Rp1000-Rp3000 per head.

angkut gots lots of colour

For angkut route, you can refer here angkutan

Even if you do not print the route…still.. its not hard to cope with this transportation… A lot of angkut available on the road and the driver would be more pleasure to help you with the route and places you were not familiar with. Plus, the passenger itself were very helpful.. Sundanese are nice group of people<— I kept on hearing this before..so its true.

me n my sister inside angkut

We had our lunch at Riau Junction Shopping mall food court and had Nasi Lengkong, Mee Koclok and Nasi…( i dont remember)

Mee koclok

This i dont remember but really nice

Nasi Lengkong

the drinks about Rp6000

The best find is the Belgian Waffle Durian.. Its soooo delicious..I never like durian like i love it like this.. The waffle mix is durian and topped with durian ice cream….To die forr….(no pics sadly)

So after the tummy happily comfort we went to FO Riau & FO Dago

Heritage

another durian-modified food

melts in your mouth durian ice cream

I didnt do much shopping at the FO. To me it was quite pricey, the brand is so-so…the best find is the MNG Basic blouse price Rp75,000 at Renaritti, Jln Riau. Renaritti got nice selection plus this Indonesian designer’s Yasmin if im not mistaken..it was one of a kind design..

The rain restrict us so much on the walking and time..since we do not hired supir. While waiting for the rain to stop i did buy these..from the paparazii chasing you ALL the time..they will ask and do muka kesian for you to buy every damn thing they sell…seriously its annoying to think about but from another side, at least they’re not doing bad things, for the sake of cari makan…

flip foldover parachute cute bag..pfft Rp100,000 for 10pcs free 5 summore

About 8pm we went to FO DSE  near Jl Dago and buy the kartu telepon to calls/sms malaysia

telco shop..near DSE

FO DSE has lower price tag than any other FO..But its more like a Reject Shop to me..I bought a white long sleeves shirt price only Rp35,000.

The its rain again…We went to Restoran Simpang Raya Nasi Padang Jalan Dago..

yamsengg

these all what we had......

Just after you put ur butt on the seat, they will be more than 15 dishes serve to you right away, together with nasi panas and chinese tea..Well for those yang kebulur memang menantikan service like this..You will be charge by the plate you took.. Each plate cost around 7,000-15,000 depaends on the lauk. Total tummy pleasure Rp110,000 for 3 person. Oh plus Jus Alpukat= Avocado Juice and Corn Juice..ewww..hehehehe. The juice here beyond expectation u know….Very pure

We went back to hotel by angkot near 10pm

angkutaholics..hehehe

Finish day 1…This is the most tiring day..i dunno why..

Design rumah ni lawa sangattttt..Ok dah berenti day-dreaming

Itinerary changed..

Gelak dulu..Hahahahahaha

Because of this bridal excessive hormones, I think its better if i change the visit to Pasar baru to Monday….soo that if i havent puas to buy wed stuff….hari Selasa boleh pergi lagi….after going back from Tangkuban Perahu. Ikotkan nak skip je TP tapi fikirkan what i had plan before2..kena pergi jugak..And maybe kena hired supir la..harap2 ada la bwh IDR400k for 1 sedan car..

Chanel bags

Out of nowhere I suddenly fall in love with chanel…The quilted stitching pattern handbags. last time i always tot that this is ugly..

timeless

I read sumwhere that Mischa Barton is the chanel queen..its like she’s so into the bags..she almost have all the collection

Bandung got eh this kind…..:))))

Yesterday I went to Tesco..found this Chanel alike replica but no 2 C’s whatsoever..its plain black but quilted, gold with black leather  shoulder strap…veryyyy nice…I need a small shoulder bag..Sick of carrying large tote/hobo.

Chanel is timeless and suits all.its a good investment( that came out wrong but girls u know what i mean). Investment because chanel price could go up to 3k.

ps: hantaran bagi Chanel mmg laaaa terbaikk

pps: i dun understand why Ed Hardy shirt is soo sickerly pricey…For rock chic ok la but now its become phenomena alredy. So annoying looking at those prints…….
