Jakarta & Bandung - what to expect?

me & girlfriends will be leaving for Jakarta & Bandung next week (28/3 - 1/4), all about wedding stuffs hunting. except my married Shazana :P

we'll be spending 3 nights in BDO & arrangement nye pun sudah settle. Jakarta je belum, walk-in on weekend agak2 boleh dapat hotel room tak?

basically, we'll be hunting for below :

- hantaran stuffs (telekung)
- bridal lace
- kain for family
- doorgift
- invitation card

i'm not sure how much to expect from this trip as the places we could list out for now were tanah abang, mangga dua, pasar baru and repeating..my visit to weddingku.com (Indon wedding webbie), macam takde pulak vendor yg reside at those places... *blurrrrr*

last time i sempat pegi Tanah Abg je, but those lace yang i jumpe just netting & lace indon yg keras sikit tu..bkn french lace or anything softer. appreciate your opinion & recommendation, if any. especially from those yang dah pegi...

it can be anything...jkt or bdo better, where conveniently to stay, to eat, Indon bridal tailor, cheap & nice doorgift/card etc. and the what nots toooo...thanks!

hey :) just came back from there, bought all my kain wedding from there for myself and my family.

for the best lace and kain, head to Mayestik in Jakarta. banyak kedai. something like jalan TAR kat kl. they have everything from the most expensive french lace to the cheapest.. 8rm per meter pun ada!
that's the best place to go for lace i think.
in jkt.. head to mangga dua to find other stuff lah. but i dont really know the exact places because the place is huge. for kain telekung mangga dua banyak

for BDO, lace u can find kat pasar baru :) kat sana pun banyak telekung


good luck :D
you'll have an awesome time there!

I heard lotsa nice fabric at bukit tinggi, mangga dua..bandung of course pasar baru is not to be missed, spend at least half day browsing for kain there..

Food.. Try Kampung Daun, on the way back from Tangkuban Parahu.. Nice ambience, great food...you'll love it!

i prefer to shop at bandung.. less hassle dari gi jakarta.. u'll spend more hours on the road.. lagipun kat sana cepat gelap sikit.. so you dont want to waste your time

1 stop shopping center is Pasar Baru.. got my card, my french lace and my family nyer kain.. :), erm... for telekung ask them for sulam bukit tinggi.. takyah gi bukit tinggi... kat bandung ada

di Mangga dua jakarta.. favor yang cantik dan murah ada di tingkat bawah... satu seringgit lebih jer.. yang porselin and such

btw... how are you planning to bring 'em home?

went there 3 times.. baru cukup sume barang

makan... jgn lupa makan nasi timbel! then makan gurami.. ask them for restoran makan sunda...

di jakarta.. makan di restoran garuda.. di sarina.. :)

i have the chance to enjoy more... since my future brother in law.. is working there.. but if you like to eat seafood.. go to restoran jimbaran di mangga dua..

you do take care.. always bring along your pasport.. and please only naik BLUEBIRD.. (taxi).. its SAFE! and CLEAN! .. :)

kalau roaming mahal.. beli kad simpati.. hihihih jimat lagi dari roaming berkali kali ganda.. bleh ckp ngan org kampung time pilih2 barang : hihihihih

ok haf fun darling.. and please take care.

hye there!i just luv to read ur blog. very helpful!keep blogging k :)

i baru blk dr sana, I spend 3 hari berturut2 kat Pasar Baru. kat sana aje settle semua benda: telekung, kain nikah, kain for family, doorgift (lipstick case for rm0.90 satu) and kad jemputan. Kain yg dpt murah kat kedai nama Angel.Very helpful la owner & workers dia. dlm Rp6 juta dpt semua (termasuk shopping di FOS)!Di bandung I stay kat Hotel Corsiga. If u g ramai2 lagi senang u sewa MPV and Supir khas. so u nak g mane2 senang ada org bwk dgn brg2 yg byk.

Have fun wif ur trip! :)

Fifi Amkhaiz said...

my story sgt sadis. i beli my lace kat pasar baru bdo n terus buat skali kat sana last yr oct. then last month amik, tp really tak puas hati sgt. i hv to alter it here, both reception dress for mine & his side. my nikah dress totally wreck! i kena buat semua skali baru kat sini. what a waste! my advice, yes kain wise u really can buy there. but i think tempah biar lah kat sini je, puas hati altho mahal sket. i'll be going to jkt again early next month for souvenir hunting with my mom.
btw very informative entry, dear. i'll put in jatinegara in my itinerary ;-)

dialicious said...

i agree with Fifi..a few of my frens said their beadworks nampak murah n design baju x ikut mcm ape kita nak..senang cite..ramai yg retempah their wedd dress tau..rugi jugak

hidden.wing said...

my friend pun tempah her akad nikah & reception dress kat sane, unfortunately her reception dress teruk gile & finally Lynda Rahim alter kene smpi rm1k. but her nikah outfit gorgeous gile plak ehhe...

her tips, if we nak design ala2 pengantin Indon (like BCL, Cosry's etc) boleh tempah kat sane.

if nak custom2 to Malaysian dress mmg diorg tak pandai...last time mase i gi jkt pun, diorg taktau baju kurung tu ape hehe...
tak tahu mcm mane nk jahit kan...for ala2 our dress, better tempah in Malaysia je to avoid such risk ehhe..

again, thx everyone for sharing!
