Our flight brought us to Bandung early in the morning. We reached our hotel at 9am local time which is 1 hour later than the Malaysian time. Luckily, the hotel allows us to check in early and we have our room service, since the girls still have their inflight meals. The girls slept through the flight.
As we plan to GRAB for our journey, hubs and I have to search high and low for local prepaid phone card. Fortunately, our hotel WIFI is strong and we managed to get a GRAB to a Digital Mall to get our SIM card and relief to get back on time to get mom and girls ‘s dinner in the form of instant noodles, which the girls enjoyed much.
Proved to be more exciting and less tiring after charging of batteries. We had our breakfast early and the girls enjoyed the butter and white bread. They finished a half good loaf of bread. The hotel better prepare more breads as my girls are charging on the bread.
Before we finished our breakfast, our driver is waiting for us. Today we are exploring Lembang, about an hour drive from our hotel. First destination, Farmhouse Susu Lembang. We were given a cuppa of fresh milk - choice of chocolate, strawberry or original. All you have to do was to exchange the entrance ticket for the milk vouchers. The milk were fresh and it was chilled nicely. We spend about 1 1/2 hours here and the girls enjoyed feeding the calves, petting the rabbits and a good walk around the Hobbit built architecture under the breeze air.
Next destination - Lembang Floating Market. This is more adventurous with walking on the treetop for the girls as my angel is afraid of height. It was a challenging 5 minutes walk.
However, the girls loved the boat ride overlooking the floating market that sells variety of snacks and food. So, we decided to have our lunch here before heading to the next destination.
Dusun Banbu is situated on a hilltop with paddy plantation to greet us. We then took a jip to reach the top where there’s nest like restaurant and small amusement park for the kids.
Our last destination of the day is Rumah Mode. A place where varieities of food, fashion and accessories were on sale. After getting some souvenirs, we went to the foodcourt for our dinner. The girls had chicken rice while we try on the ayam penyet, tempe and nasi goreng set.
After sending mom and the girls back to the hotel, we went to Champelas to check out the stuff there. Supper was quite good in the reataurant so hubs was suggesting to get the family for dinner here since the next 2 days will be shopping days.
We were glad the girls were soundly asleep when we reached the hotel. Cooling weather makes walking around easier and resting in the hotel seems to be paradise after a day of walking.
Yippie was the words as we were on the way to Trans Studio Bandung, the indoor theme park the girls looking forward to. It took us quite awhile to GRAB in conjunction with the eve day of Raya. Besides limited transport, it was quite jam up in Bandung.
Nevertheless, we still reach the theme park and the girls were thrilled once we were inside. We started with Superhero 4G aand they girls loved it.
Next, hubs and I had to drive the girls in the racing and the girls can’t wait to try on the wheels. By 12 noon we have to stop the girls for lunch before checking for special effect show. At least the adults have something to do, with magic shows, acrobatic and dances.
We reached hotel after dinner at the food court in Trans Studio Mall. The girls were exhausted and did not object being sent back to bed while Daddy and Mummy go shopping at the nearby mall - Bandung Indah Plaza.
Selamat Hari Raya to all Muslims! It’s consider a Daddy and Gradma shopping day! We explored the city by foot and bought sone local oleh-oleh as souvenirs. As it was a Raya day, most of the store will only open after lunch, we let the girls to play at the nearby park for awhile and then off to lunch.
Later we GRAB to Champelas for shopping and finally got all our souvenirs and presents for the girls. We had our dinner and the food was closer to home. The girls eat heartily.
Last day in Bandung. Decided to bring the girls for a city tour before boarding home. This time round our trip was more relaxing as transport was easy. Hotel wise, Anggrek Gandasari being a 2 stars hotel proved to have better service and facilities. WIFI qas strong theoughout the day and walking distance to convinience stores. Bandung has been a place for both adults and kids.
