- continuation of previous post -
I'll start off with Day 4 first. We rented a van since there were 7 adults and 3 kids. Our first stop (and the only non-shopping part of the whole trip !!) was to Tangkuban Perahu, which is an active volcano about one hour away from Bandung town.
Volcano Crater (the smell of sulfer was pretty strong) -
(I wanted to let Elyssa sit with the cheh-chehs but she kept saying "no want sit horse")
Overall, I found Tangkuban Perahu quite overrated. Nothing much to see and there's also a RM20 admission charge per person. But ok lah for a one-time visit.
We had lunch at Paris Van Java and then it was back to what we did best - SHOPPING !!
Places that we shopped :
Day 4 (after the visit to Tangkuban Perahu) - Jln Setiabudi : Natural, Mode Plus, Rumah Mode
Day 3 - Jeans Street : SuperHero, Catwoman etc ;
Jalan Dago : Rich & Famous, Glamour, Blossom, Jet Set, Raffles City, Victoria, Seximo etc
I actually shopped more on Day 3&4 compared to Day 1&2. Two main reasons :
1) it's more fun to shop with more people (an example was when my SIL found a pair of gorgeous Christian Dior jeans. Ended up she bought one, I bought two, another SIL bought one and my MIL bought one. Yup, all the same design!)
2) I had my personal "helper" to take care of Elyssa. :)

Elyssa also had fun with both Chloe & Charmaine cheh-cheh while we were all busy shopping..
See how much we shopped??? Ha hahh.... luckily we brought Elyssa's stroller along.

The food that we had during Day 3&4 was pretty forgettable. Nothing awful but nothing great either. Though one of the "memorable" item was the size of our vege dish during dinner on Day 3. Eh, vege so expensive meh????
Pic of our vege dish + my SIL's hand, to show relative size ;)
Our flight on Day 5 was at 12pm so it was basically breakfast in the hotel, some last minute packing and then off to the airport.
All in all, Bandung is definitely a shopping haven. Hubby and I are thinking of going back there in maybe 2 or 3 years time to restock our wardrobe. ;) Where else can we get our lovely Versace and Christian Dior jeans for only about RM 80?? Or Zara tops for about RM35? Or Armani tshirts for about RM35? Or my Espirit 3/4 pants for RM40? Or hubby's Gucci work shirt for RM70?
He hehh..... we bought so much stuff that we have to clear our existing cupboard space to make way for the new clothes :)
Shy lah, to take photo of our loot, but here's a photo of Elyssa's new clothes -
