On the 4th day, we went to Pasar Baru, which is just behind our hostel. about 10 minutes walk? It is quite convenient actually. First thing in the morning, bangun pagi terus menapak dekat sana. Sampai Pasar Baru je, Ana and Daya terus beli kain for their relatives back home. Especially Ana yang gonna have big celebration for Eid Adha. Hehe

I duduk dekat tepi je sambil bagi my unprofessional advice on the design and corak for all the kain lol I was actually aiming the 100000IDR (about RM30 on that day) kain untuk Mak and Kaknyah. Dapat la kain pasang for both of them and a batik shirt for abah. hewhew
We lasted at the shopping mall at about two hours sebelum kaki dah lembik mintak katil bahahahaha the mall is soooo big that I think sehari pun tak cukup #notashoppingperson ._. Then we went back to our hostel, letak barang semua before pergi tapau dinner. Bandung punya waktu matahari tenggelam is quite fast. So about 6pm, Bandung dah gelap. The air got colder and we just walk to our favourite (and only) restaurant to tapau dinner :)
Upon walking back to our hostel, we just found out that the area we're staying at is actually known as the Red Light District of Bandung LOOOOOOOOL no wonder our supir asked us to stay indoor at night -___________- tapi taknak bagitau kenapa pfft alhamdulillah, nothing bad happened to us tho. So we spent the night just chilling and repacking our bags with our stuffs. Kakek (stands for grandpa in the district of Bandung) has been really helpful throughout our stay and he made a mean roti telur bakar okay teehee
The next morning, we left for the airport at around 10 am as our flight is at 2pm. Needed to be there by 12pm. After checking out, we waited for Dadan to fetch us. Paid him 100000IDR (RM30.05) Before heading to the airport, we went to a perfume shop. Did I tell you Bandung's perfumes are mad cheap? Obviously it is not the original ones, but then it ranges from RM25 to lesser (!!!!!) I actually bought one for myself, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue hehe :) Ana wanted to buy one for her *ahem* friend, so we just went along since it is still early to be at the airport.
After buying the perfumes, we went to the airport to check in. Alhamdulillah, check in process went well. We were informed by our friends and relatives that we need to prepare RM30 upon checking in our luggage for our flight back from Bandung (in case bag exceeds weight given) tapi takdek pun! weehuu! hahahaha :D
We chilled at the lounge (super small and crowded btw :/ ) and departed safely at 2pm.
We arrived at KLIA 2 safely as well, collected our luggage and then parted our ways after that :) I took the speed train KLIA Express back home (RM35 one way) to KL Sentral and took the train back to Klang via KTM Klang :)
In a nutshell, the trip to Bandung is definitely an eye opener for yours truly. Dapat experience budaya negara lain and learning about them is so much fun! :)
Oh yes, before I forgot here's Dadan's contact number:
Dadan Setiawan - +62 878 2113 3344
Definitely looking forward for another trip with these girls x
