November 18th 2012. Well, today is Shopping Day!! Hooray!!! Last night, BIL and SIL promised to bring us to Jakarta City. They would bring us to somewhere in which we shall shop till drop.
As BIL and SIL will be fetching us around 10-ish, we had our breakfast in the hotel. There were variety food to be chosen. Range from western to eastern.. that is.
After our meal, we went back to our room to watch some movie while waiting for BIL and SIL. When they came by, BIL presented us with some bags of gifts which he got from Dubai during his transit to Jakarta. Mr H got some shirts and me.. I’ve got the Parisienne – YSL Perfume.
Heading to Jakarta took us a very long hour due to heavy rain and the traffic jam. Surprised by Surprises!!! BIL gave us the wedding gifts.. he said.. all shopping is on him. Whooaa.. the place they took us.. trust me, you would not want to end the shopping. I’ve got my hijab, some clothing and the batik fashions, ofcoz. We shopped almost three and then we rushed to restaurant for dinner with the rest of the family.
We need to avoid the traffic jam. We were going for SEAFOOD.. yummy!!!
We reached Bandar Djakarta Indonesia Seafood Restaurant early somehow. So we spent time talking and joking while waiting for the rest. Wow.. there’s so much to talk about. We learn more about Indonesia from BIL and SIL.. and some business talk too.
By evening all of us gather finally. Ibu can’t make it due to her health. Poor Ibu. Back to menu, we order kepiting (crab/ketam) dish.. one chilli and the other Black Pepper.
Next was the Prawn.. two kinds: Chilli Prawn and Udang Telur Asin (this one really yummy.. thinking of getting the recipe once back home). For the fish.. two kinds too: Steamed Fish and Fried Chilli Fish..
There were Kangkung, Kailan, Tahu Sumbat, Otak2 (a bit different from Singapore), etc. Trust me.. I surrendered early.. coz if I continue.. I swear Mr H has to carry me back to hotel.. hehe.. When we reached our room, it was nice to see our laundry on our bed.. washed and ironed..
