My holiday in Bandung, Indonesia! Yes everyone! I had taken a good long 10 day holiday to the bustling, vibrant city of Bandung which is the home town of my boyfriend at the start of September! My blog ran as normal as I had prewritten enough posts to not be MIA! We both stayed for the most part at his grandparent's property which is about 2 hours drive away from the main city area.
They're property is a beautiful flower farm unlike most of their neighbors. Let's just say that the majority of the properties and homes outside of the main city area belong to the poorer class of people and most live off the land or small businesses. Staying on the farm meant being 1 hour drive away from restaurants, supermarkets and any kind of shopping center. So it was really a secluded and peaceful place to be!
Continue below for my holiday photos!
|Special: My Holiday in Bandung Indonesia! (Flower farm stay, local food, make up shopping)|
|Look at this gorgeous wooden and brick farm house! The temperature is temperate and ran between 15-20 in the daytime and goes down to 8-10 in the early morning and night!|
|Taken from the balcony of the house, on the far left is the kitchen, an open space and the roofs in the back is the main farm house! The property goes until the fir trees in the back, it's like a long rectangle!|
|Sitting on the bench on the balcony looking down onto the property and the mountainous scenery! We would sit at the balcony in the day time with our laptops out!|
|Selfie up on the balcony! Loved the lighting in the daytime!|
|A few shots of the farmhouse, the living area is really spacious with two small long couches, two single couches and a wooden central table with four seats. There is one bedroom downstairs, two bathrooms, a kitchen area and a large loft upstairs!|
|My boyfriend having a good time with all three tech devices out and being used! Yes, he's the kind who gets his work done and has his fun all with a laptop and a good internet connection!|
|A medium size vegetable patch! Lots of lettuce, beets, spring onions, coriander, celery and some papaya trees in the background! Let me say again that the cool and temperate weather in Bandung is perfect for farming!|
|The space in front of the main farm house! A beautiful open lawn with lots of flower patches and designs in progress!|
|The furthest building in the back is the farmhouse we were at! I was standing in front of the main house facing right!|
|Sooooo many baby cactus plants!|
|Rows of vegetable patches with chillis, chinese greens and other green vegetables!|
|Various flowers out in the garden! The photo on the top left is of two ladybugs....procreating! HEHEHE|
|More beautiful colorful flowers! I love how many colors there are on this property!|
|Eaten at a franchise restaurant at Cihampelas Walk shopping center! My boyfriend had a roast chicken and I had a ox tail soup, we also had this freaking delicious fish past fried wanton with a peanut sauce!|
|Having afternoon fraps with delicious donuts! We got a freshly fried and glazed donut with the coffees! Eaten at Paris Van Java shopping center!|
|A super super sized cling wrap! That roll weighed at least 3 kilos! I really love how you can get mini and giant sized products! I wish we were able to have such a large range of product sizes in singapore!|
|After a day out walking around the mall I put on a mini skirt and my hot pink lip cream for dinner at a restaurant at the Trans Luxury hotel, they had several restaurants at the first floor that are accessible to the public.|
|Our dinner! Chicken ceasar salad (very nice although the croutons with not crispy and there was a bit much sauce), sirloin steak (loved the grilled side veg and wedges) and my boyfriend's wagyu steak (his ordered medium rare but it came more rare!|
|Local sirloin steak! Cooked to medium-well, roasted garlic and pepper chicken leg (which took FOREVER in the small oven) and a double layer banana cake which was a pleasure to make! (with peanut butter and chocolate sprinkles!)|
|The FREAKING BEAUTIFUL POOL at Aston Primera Pasteur Hotel! The photos from agoda.com do it no justice!|
|Pool at Aston Primera Pasteur Hotel! From the opposite end! Check out the sun covered long seats! We cozy and look at the little waterfall in the back!|
|A long koi pond at one side of the pool! This is so creative and I love being able to hang over that side of the pool and watch the fish!|
|Pool at Aston Primera Pasteur Hotel! See! The koi pond is on this side of the pool and you can hang over the edge and look at the fish and on the further left off the photo is the outside seating for their restaurant!|
|We both quickly grabbed these seats but then again, it was nearly noon and there was no one else but a family with little kids at the pool!|
|The water was freezing cold because the weather is cold but yet the stones were so hot because of the sun!|
|Loved this photo my boyfriend took for me! I had splashed water onto the stone so it would be not too hot!|
|Posing below the small waterfalls!|
|It took soooo much convincing to get him into the pool! He only stayed for 10 minutes! He found it too cold! Yes, we both were #nomakeup!|
|And, he thought it would be funny to take this photo and some more embarrassing ones when I turned over to sun my back!|
|The make up I did the day I was going to leave! A smokish eye with the Sleek Oh so special palette!|
|My outfit! A top from H n M and a skirt I bought the day before from Berskha! Wearing sandals from Charles & Keith!|
|Breakfast on my last day in Bandung! I had bowl of porridge with pickles, dried beef floss, lots of spring onions! My boyfriend had lots of pastries, the mini croissants and pain au chocolat were fresh from the oven!|
|My sexy simple dress for our dinner in the hotel! I ordered it from boohoo.com size 12! My simple wedge heels are from New Look!|
|Three photo to capture my Bandung Indonesia holiday: A beautiful flower farm, cold weather, relaxing days out shopping, sunning at the poolside and lots of local food! I also did a lot of shopping but that's for another time!|
My trip was a great 10 days of relaxing and lots of spending (unfortunately). I went a bit overboard with certain purchases but they were all at a big price reduce or were exclusive to Indonesia or just unavailable in Singapore! I will be doing another separate post on my food/ beauty haul soon!
Have you ever visited any city in Indonesia?
