Jakarta (last day)

We managed to go shopping today as our flight time to KL is 6:05 pm. Planned to go to Mangga 2 but the taxi driver recommended going to Cempaka Mas as he said the complex is more bigger under one roof. We arrived there at 9:45 am. The lights were not all switched on, shops are about to start operating and many shops still closed (awalnya datang!) But as we walk from one shop to one shop, the complex became brighter (all the lights was ON) and all the shops were opened.
Yes it's true, all things are here. And most surprising to us, the same things (mostly) at Pasar Baru Trade Centre Bandung could be found here with much much much much cheaper. Waduhh...menyesal? To cover the guiltiness, I also spent some (as usual). Don't miss the chance OK. And lesson for the day is, next time if you want to buy things like telekung, batik, tudung, kemeja, hbag, bought at Jakarta. Branded items get at Bandung.
We couldn't spent much time here as we have to go back to hotel room to pack & check out before heading to airport.

After having lunch, we departed to airport at 3:30 pm. By right it would only take 20 minutes from the hotel to airpot, but because jalan macet (jam), there's a construction at hiway (imagine 3 lanes became 1 lane), we almost missed the flight. That was the "panic period" for all of us, including taxi driver. The boarding time is 5:30 pm, but we still in the hectic traffic jam at 5:40 pm. Ammar & Aqil were praying . We reached airport at 5:50 sharp, took our luggages put on the trolley and all of us were running running running like Home Alone movie..really. All the mixover feelings were there - panic, irritate, shock. The rest was history.....

And since we travelled with the baby, we were given priority to board first. My "kecut perut" only cured when only I laid myself on the seat, in the flight. The experience that won't be forgotten. "Jalann macett"

And not so many pictures today as we are shocked by all those things I listed above

Not to forget, our special dedication to hubby a.k.a abah, thanks for this treats, BDG & JKT. Thanks from mummy, Ammar, Aqil, Hannah and mek(maid) Ana. Where next?
