Trip to Medan Day 3

Day 2 was the hectic day of all since we all walked so much that i can feel my foot begging to Day 2 me and my parents and Uncle Nik and Guntur went out for dinner at Garuda House..we first planned to have dinner at Mendailing because of mis-communication with the driver Angkota lastly we end up at Garuda House..we went back to hotel room by riding Bentor which is Beca is the same trishaw that you guys found in Malacca but here it was upgraded using motorcycle instead of bicycle..i think Malaysia should have this to the trishaw otherwise i will pity the old man cycled the trishaw while im just finish eating and start to bloated and become heavier..i can imagine what does it looks like to watch that old skinny man cycle with their effort..damn! More journey of Day 2..

In Day 3, as usual after morning breakfast around 9 am we started our journey to all of the malls in Medan by riding Bentor..sort of i pretty sure they only have 3 malls in Medan or so was i thought..we went by 3 Bentor..first Bentor, my mum and dad and second Bentor, me and Uncle Nik and last Bentor,Guntur on his own..but nothing much to see anyway in the mall..just a bunch of clothes that making me want to scream! after that we went back to Pasar Ikan Lama and strolled back to the shops there and my mum bought more kain telekung and kain telekung for kids, one for aira and one for sophie..the kids telekung is the cutest..with dots of Strawberries..

For lunch, we went to Mendailing yess finally! we went there by Angkota and they served so many many dishes like almost 20 dishes on the table and its feels like i have to hold my plate to eat..that shows how many of the dishes..and eventually there are some rules to eat Padang cuisine..
"Only take what you want to eat"
Why? because if you eat the dishes, they charge the price depends on the dishes you ate...either it is finish or you just take little bit, it will charges as you ate the whole dishes in the plate..
So my tips are:

1- Decide what dishes you want to eat
2- The dishes that you dont want to eat, put it aside 
    or ask the waiter/waiters to pick them up.
3- Never touches the dishes that you dont want to eat
4- Finish up the dishes that you choose

That night, Uncle Nik and his assistant went back to Malaysia while me and my parents had our dinner at the restaurant in the hotel..

The traffic was like crazy man!
