well, the title said it all..haha..not quite actually..it was part of it atleast..hehe
anyway, me and my 2 friends went for a so called "day trip" to Jakarta Fair in Jakarta, by train..fyi, a first for me..nearly 5 years in Bandung, i never set foot in a train station before..haha..truthfully, it was quite a delightful journey..the seats were surprisingly comfortable and spacious..but the most surprising, was it left ON TIME! (salute!)..
when i woke up, the kids in front of me was still playing! and now they were actually on 'overdrive!'..haha..i think their parents managed to overdose the kids with glucose! or caffeine! hehe..upon reaching Jakarta, left and right, i could only see concrete jungles..no more greenery..when the door opened, a sudden breeze of hot air can be felt..Jakarta was hot and humid! very different to Bandungs' cool and breezy weather..hehe..
on arrival, all i could think of was "where was the ATM? need money!" hehe.."kecing $$$!!, kecing $$$!!"..money checked! now off to shop for some stuffs..i already had some things to buy in mind (futsal shoes, football boots, and jerseys and maybe some other sports stuffs)..i went straight to the sporting goods department..i was utterly disappointed with what was on offer..3 kinds of jerseys, few football boots, NO futsal shoes, and loads of "LEAGUE" rubbish..by the way "LEAGUE" is a brand..hehe..we went to find for other sporting outlets, and it was the same, filled with "LEAGUE" rubbish..haha..i tried on a few boots, and i managed to find one that i liked..it was a Nike Air Legend II FG, and it was on discount..original price (Rp1.5 juta = rm600) - 80% discount = rp300k! (rm120)..cheap!! huhu..it was the highlight of the my trip.........until.........tadaa! i met RONALDINHO! haha..at first i thought so, but it turned out to be his long lost brother from Indonesia, RONALDIKIN! hehe..
Trip Back to Bandung
after a long day at Jakarta Fair, a day filled with first's, laughter, disappointments, and "capek-ness" (tiredness), we went back by train to Bandung..the journey back was totally the opposite from the journey to Jakarta..it was dark outside, no kids playing, and we were all too tired to worry about our surroundings that we dozed off as soon as the train started to move..
toot, tooot, toooooot~ (the horns for the train)
we arrived in Bandung around 12 at night, took a cab (very very nice seasoned taxi driver, may God bless him) reached home, bathe, tried to watch the World Cup match between Ghana and the US, but i was in dreamland, halfway through the game..hehe..
all in all, i had one of the best 'day trip' as long as i could remember, despite the ups and downs..special thanks to my 2 friends..thanx guys!
