BANDUNG, August '11: Day 2

Buffet breakfast, and the shopping were my motivations to wake up early! I'mma such a chiongster when it comes to travelling esp at shopping countries. Yes, I mean like I don't have much time spent there so I should treasure every single moment! Unless I've got like a month to spare there, then of course, that's a total diff story!

Cheers to Breakkie!

PINK Bunnyears!

First shopping place of the day: Rumah Mode (Pronounced as Ru-Ma Mo-Deh)
A little further up not really in the vicinity of our hotel area... so we took a cab!

Asked the cab to stop for an hour while we do some quick shopping, before heading further up...

Did a quick run thru the shops there but didn't managed to cover everything. We thought it was quite a good place, so decided to come back later on ~ `

Anyways, we continued on... Headed down to another famous factory outlet, Paris Van Java!
This place houses most international brands, brands that we'r familiar with in Singapore... *grins*

308748_10150367750668665_706803664_9669001_1481679_n

We were really excited when we saw these familiar brands, BUT, sadly to our dismay, we were quite disappointed with the prices because they were not any cheaper than SG, infact some more expensive :< double double sighs!

The only thing that light up my face! SAW THIS CUTE HELLOKITTY PUSHCART STALL (: Bought a couple of stuffs from them, like 2 shirts and a handphone pouch...

297089_10150367752753665_706803664_9669024_2608156_n

But, I must say... the place is quite big! So we could just walk around...
Went to buy random stuffs at those girly shops. Those were quite cheap compared to SG. esp, my Hello Kitty loots!

298073_10150367751808665_706803664_9669014_2417646_n

Oh yes, and I saw quite cute interesting novelty items, like these:

297593_10150367759678665_706803664_9669139_7892034_n
Mini colourful diff flavours icecream cone on such a cute tray. New & Cute Concept!

And these...
308691_10150367754383665_706803664_9669057_8188186_n
Buns, shaped like animals & fruits! Spot the pig and the strawberry figures!

Ohyes, while shopping, I lost the girls :(
Thankfully, I happened to meet them inside a departmental stall. Can u imagine my face when I saw them... I was like OMGZZZ!

They brought me to eat J.CO yogurt. Not too bad I must say!
Very refreshing!

Check out their cool openspace concept toilets, quite interesting! Below the basins, there are huge fishes swimming in the pond right below your feet!

Took a mini van back to Rumah Mode area...

The van had no aircon & its windows were open, so technically while on the roads, the fumes from other vehicles came into our van and I was literally suffocating underneath these poisonous gases:( Thankfully, I bought my Hello Kitty mask and I could wear them like a happykid!

Dropped by other nearby factory outlets, since the van dropped us there ^^

After shopping there, we walked on and went to Rumah Mode for Round 2 of shopping there. Then an hour later, shag! We took a break due to sudden random hunger pangs!

Sat by Java Bean Cafe~

After shopping, we got the same morning's taxi and went to Chihampalas Walk to check that place out... since it's well-known for Jeans and their famous street filled with cartoon characters like spiderman, batman, etc.

310479_10150367765723665_706803664_9669202_1719254_n
