Bandung Oh Bandung !!! (2)

Alhamdulillah, we safely arrived at Bandung Sastranegara Airport at 1.20 pm local time after what we've gone through during touching down due to extreme windy condition. My second bad experience in a row after my trip to Singapore.

Queuing up for Indonesian immigration procedure is kind of new experience for us although I've gone through a very strict procedure in the US. We are required to put our right and left 4 fingers on the automatic scanner and on the spot digital photo. "Di sini, ibu menginap di mana", "Berapa hari ibu di sini" were among the information they wanted to know.

We finally made our way out and someone with my name printed on a paper waiting for us. We've got everything booked online and our supir introduced himself as Nanang.

On the way to hotel

We stayed at Unik Hotel, a budget hotel located approximately 10 minutes from the airport. I'll blog on the total cost of accommodation, transportation and contact person in another entry.

Bandung Oh Bandung !!! (1)

I'm sure Bandung is one of so much talk about among bloggers, be it as shopping paradise or food paradise and their must visit spa. My friends and I had been contemplating to visit Bandung ever since last year but to no avail until we finally made a very quick decision last month. However, at the very last minute, the plan almost cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. Fortunately, despite having lots of hiccup here and there, we finally managed to board flight MH868, 31 March 2011, 12 noon to Bandung. MAS was having its offer that you can't refuse. Return air ticket to Bandung cost us only RM369 inclusive of everything.

Although I was very tired after coming back from Singapore a day earlier and a very hectic shedule for the past 4 days when I was in Singapore, the thought of going to have fun with friends has somehow, given me strength and I did even forget my tiredness.

More stories coming soon !!!

Shopping - A good mental therapy

Do you agree with me that shopping/window shopping will make you feel happy, calm and good ?

According to researchers at the UK's Brunel University, shopping is associated with increased activity in the left prefrontal cortex, a part of the brain that has been linked to pleasure and positive thinking. In fact, levels of dopamine, a neurotransmitter released during pleasurable experiences including sex, can rise sharply even when you're merely window shopping.

However, being a Muslim, nothing compares to our solat, one of the 5 Pillars in Islam, our foundation being a Muslim . If we perform our prayer fully devoted to ALLAH, apart from increasing our faith in ALLAH, improving our mind and soul spiritually studies show that there are some implications on our physical health.

Therefore people, I remind myself and to all of you, let's improve our solat.
