26th January 2013, Saturday
Wake up early in the morning, eat breakfast and take a lot of pictures before leaving. It feels really good to have narcissm sisters. Fooling around, drama play.. Never get bored to take pictures. And I keep practising to pose like a model. cia you!!
For the next bandung signature landmark, It’s Kawah Putih (White Crater). We have to go there earlier because it’s far from the city. Almost spend 2 hours to go there. On the way to the location, my mom and auntie keep chattering (gossip) so it didn’t feel like we take a long trip. Arrived, there’s already a lot of people there. They said it’s a dangerous crater. It’s interesting, we went down the stair. Right in front of us is an amazing turquoise lake. Wonderful! The world is amazing, how can it created? It’s also an active crater, we can see the smoke come out at the other side of the mountain. We cannot stay at the crater for more than 15 minutes and do not touch the water, it contains high sulfur and poison. A lot of people took pictures here and so we are with a lot of poses. Never get bored to take pictures.
After finish here, we will go to Situ Patenggang Lake, on the way we passed the great tea field. It’s also the most beautiful view I ever see in my life, wide open space with green color in front of my eyes. Cool air, fresh air. Love the nature. We came down and capture this beautiful view.
Arrived at the lake. Hmm.. If compared to Lake Toba, it’s not really good. Oh well.. it’s vacation, so always exciting. There’s also a legend in this place about the Love stone. We have to visit there by boat. It costed IDR 150.000,- for one boat. I had fun on the boat. See the view of the lake and mountain. Arrived at the Love Stone location. hmm.. I don’t really get it here.. The love stone is just a block of stone, for me it’s not really special. After we took some picture, we’re going back.
We’re heading to Cibaduyut, Appe said this is the largest market for leather shoes, sandals, bags, jackets etc. All leather specialist. hmmm… If I’m on the trip, I don’t feel like shopping, more like to see the landmarks, culinary and take pictures. And also Cibaduyut location are so busy. We just passed by and heading to buy snack souvenirs at Kartika Sari.
Bandung is well know for its brownies, Kartika Sari is one of the best brand in Bandung. We’re having our late lunch here. My sisters order some local foods like batagor, nasi bambu etc. They are delicious. We bought some snacks like brownies, pisang sale, bagelen etc. After that, we’re back to Jakarta.
Tomorrow, Mom and sisters will be back to Medan. Before that we’re having lunch at Manhattan Fish market – Central Park. It’s a nice and fun Bandung trip with them.
