Jakarta- Bandung (ohikss...hikksss)

Posted by Fico , Wednesday, December 24, 2008 6:28 AM

Today i wake up rushing my sister just lend her husband back pack (thank God!).
I just can't travel with gracious look.. with those luggage with small wheels..uueeehhh... not my style at all !!
From Kebon Kacang i use bajaj for the very first time for this journey. I think this eccentric vehicle is reliable for certain situation when you want to go fast traveling through Jakarta small road. Short cut is always fun to avoid the "un-avoided" traffic jam !
Its cheap... beside the nosy.. (you could always use an ear plugs..hehe) its quite comfy.. hehe.. no sun heat, and full of wind (and smoke haha !).
Its always fun for adventure tho.
From Kebon Kacang (near Grand Indonesia mall) i went to Sarinah mall. And pay Rp 6000,- bajaj guy say nothing... Went to Mc D as Arnie my other friend told me. The side entrance still closed. But i saw few people have their breakfast there. So i ask the security where to wait small buses to Bandung, and he told me to just go inside the Mc D.. hmmm...
So i wait Arnie and order some food (french fries and coke). Shes coming bit late.. made me bit worry...
So she come and we jump on the small bus. Its cost me Rp 45.000.- from Jakarta to Bandung. If from the airport it will cost you around Rp 70.000,- thats what Arni said to me. Its worthy the bus quite comfy and the driver drive very good, not so fast and not too slow !
The bus stop once to fill up tank, and other than that just smooth driving. The trip between Jakarta-Bandung take 2 hours. Theres 5 passenger including me that time.. so we have so much space. Most of passenger fall a sleep. But me and Arnie were talking along the way !
We haven't meet for like 3 years ! so many story to tell especially about Arnie school, she take her master degree (uugghh.. jealous..jealous !). Beside that the view is quite good..
We arrive nearly 12.30 pm. So we went to Arnie house at Kawaluyaan area and have lunch and then went to BIP (Bandung Indah Plaza) with public transport or "angkot" a small mini van with blue and yellow color, it cost me Rp 4000,- its quite far tho.
Bandung street are smaller than Jambi or Jakarta street. But i like it because they keep the big trees along the road. Jambi usually like this, but then the made the road bigger and cut lots of tree.. some of the tree aged hundreds (like in front of Agung mosque near Jambi market).
But the traffic jam so horrible ! (which made me thank God Jambi had bigger street !).
Arnie friend already waiting for us when we arrive at the food court. I leave them for a while to talk, they do some DVD'S exchange. I went down to look up kiosk where i could top up my IM3 card and my XL card. I haven't refill it since i work. But oh God i walk far away and didn't see any kiost near BIP. I gave up and return to BIP again.
Oh one thing i notice.. its so hard to find BCA ATM machine any near BIP so.. it made me bit worry !
There's plenty young people here at BIP, its really a good place to hangout with friends just sit down at one of the cafe and have chat with friends... hmmm....
