Why Bandung? because it is away from the busy city of Jakarta, and is said to be really relaxing over there, and of course the main reason is,
We bought Malindo flights which was really cheap of about RM340 for a return flight, and headed over to KLIA 2 to depart. The sad part was that the flight was delayed for an hour, so we had to stone at the airport for quite some time, but after that, we boarded the plane and flew for 2 hours to reach our destination!
The airport at Bandung was pretty small, it feels like the one back in Terengganu 10 years back, but there wasn't any hassle getting through the customs, and getting our baggage from the delivery bay. Cantya arrived a little late, but it was fine with us since we had 4 days to chill over there.
First stop, Cantya's house!
Honestly we were amazed at her house as it was sooooo bigg, literally its about 3 bungalows combined together, with another bungalow across the street. The whole house felt like a resort as there were plenty of birds chirping around, and loads of trees and ferns surrounding the house. Lastly, the room we had? was so comfy!

So lets move on, on the first night, all we wanted was to get some good food and relax that night off. Cantya brought us to a food court kinda place, where we were able to try different types of indonesian cuisine. After that, she told us that Bandung is actually surrounded by hills, and all the drinking spots were up on the hills. We made a move and headed over to a nice chillax bar called Erginn. Beers were cheap and it had a great view of the city
The interior of the bar, love the art!

As the night got dark, we headed back to Cantya's house as she had to work the next day. To end day 1, The bed was fantastic which I slept in until noon!
On the 2nd day, I headed out with Chung to the city centre, where we walked around and started feasting on food and drinks again!

As Cantya finished work, we headed up to Lembang, where there is the floating market and also a very nice chapel up there. It was about a 45 minute drive up, but definitely it was worth it! Imma just show you pictures of how amazing it was
The church was closed, but the gardens was not!

The next spot we went to was the floating markets, which is a great place for tourist to tryout awesome food, and families to spend time with their kids as there's plenty of fun things to do over there
Its a great place for a photoshoot
great place for family fun

And to end the night, we headed up to another bar located at Stevie G Hotel. The hotel is pretty cool as each room has a different theme. *would be great if you wanna do something kinky =P and the bar has another splendid view of the city. We had a fine bottle of Bali Moscato, and chilled the night off
