kampun Cina, 18082013

Eid Fitri Holiday is almost over, before we all back to work and other routine daily activities, my husband and I want to go somewhere with our baby and nieces spending time together. I asked him to go to kampoeng China Cibubur, the place that located just near our home and also the right destination with low budget, fun, and excited. So then we decide to go there, its only need 30 minutes to reach the place from Jababeka. No need ticket to enter the place or everyone can visit the place for free.

Kampoeng China is located inside Kota Wisata Cibubur, after exit tol Cibubur, just trying to catch out Kota Wisata gate in the left way, turn left and follow the sign to Kampoeng China until we find gate with title “Gerbang Kemakmuran”, we’ve just arrived. However we need extra time to find the right parking area due to full parking lot.

Kampung China

We could see many shops inside kampung China which are selling Chinese stuff; clothes, umbrella, bags, ornaments, face masks,etc. with affordable prices there. I only spend Rp 20,000 for my baby chinese dress and Rp 30,000 for mu hubby’s shirt. The bags also worth it started from Rp 50,000. I also could find sandals with price starting from Rp 10,000… Woow!

Kampung China barang2Going there is really feasting my eyes. The ornaments are so cute and beautiful. We also can take photos by wearing chinese traditional clothes (Han/Hanfu Clothing) but we haven’t tried it yet. Next time we go there again, we will take studio photos.

Riding Horse Like a “Coboy” in De Ranch, Lembang, Bandung, Indonesia

Actually I haven’t made any plan yet to go to Bandung at the weekend. However one of my husband’s friends invited us to come to their wedding reception in Bandung. Suddenly, I became so excited to go there although it took almost 3 hours from Jakarta, the place I lived. I asked my husband to visit De Ranch in Lembang after we’ve came to the wedding and he agreed with my proposal. Horrayyy… πŸ˜€

I will ride a horse like a “coboy”, what will be a wonderful experience I have!

After arrived at De Ranch, I definitely amazed with the place. It is surrounded by mountains and everywhere looks green, I felt so fresh and relax…. Looks like awesome place πŸ˜€

I thought not really much people have known about De Ranch, that’s why only few visitors come here with their families. Maybe because the place is still new in Lembang and not so many television channel broadcast about it. However, this is became my fortune because I could feel riding a horse in a big yard like I’m the owner. First time I have to wear the waistcoat and the hat so I will be looked like a “Coboy” πŸ˜€

She said that there was a beautiful garden park of approximately 35 hectares of land planted with many diverse flowers, such as roses, orchids and many other unique flowers around the world could be found here.
