Trip to Medan Day 2

Day 2 on the journey in Medan..BTW we went around by riding Angkota which the real name is Angkot Kota means picking up to the city..actually the same kind of tuk tuk but they called it differently in Indonesia..its a sort of a van with big stereo and fits lots of people, seriously packed!!..its one of the transports here other than taxi as taxi cost triple but its cozy and chilled...anyway if you want the adventurous i definitely recommend to ride Angkota, it just worth to try..who ever missed my Day 1 to Medan..

Second day, we went walking by foot to the shop from couples of block from our hotel...okay fine! not couples of block but so many blocks okay and so far away we been walking...we started walking in the morning as planned after breakfast at the hotel...as usual i had that conversation with Uncle Nik...about food silly! hahaha well its kinda funny and really knowledgeable information to talk to someone with experience while i only have the knowledge..it really does open my eyes on certain things..like we were talking about tea which the orange pekoe is the most expensive tea, shape like a ball and when you poured hot water its will eventually open like a flower bloom..that is priceless experience man!

We walked and walked while enjoying the view in the city...well to be honest..its not mainly the view of the city but the view of the shops that sold many clothes and also kain batik and stuff...hehehe and that time we walked passed through Dian Pelangi Boutique..and all of the sudden, out from nowhere Uncle Nik searched for baju batik to wear for formal occasion..and this idea pop up in my mind 'Let go to the next boutique' which the next in line was Dian Pelangi Boutique...hehehe and they all agree..we went in to the boutique and i was like i need to buy something here..and the owner of the boutique, Ibu Rina shown me the dresses and the outerwear and asked me to try it on...its kinda awkward though because she was like really wanted me to buy as if she knows that i really want to buy it...so lastly my money burn and fly to that cashier..she does gave good price since i bought unusual batik outerwear and Uncle Nik bought unusual pattern of baju batik..she gave us 15% discount or in Indonesian the called Diskon..so both of it cost 1 million rupees..

So that was the story i burn up my money in just few seconds..true story though..haha

That night, we went to Garuda House for Padang style dinner..the place was the cleanliness restaurant i ever seen and it was well maintained..the food there also quite nice..we went back to hotel room and rest all night..
