Trip to Bandung: Daiso and Yarn Haul

Posted by Ayni Tera at 5:49 AM

Hi there! still in holiday season, i wanna post about my recent haul^^ although it's not beauty related ~(>_<~). My family decide to stay on my father's office at Cikampek, West Java. You must be wandering why my father's office is far far away from my hometown in Jakarta.

Well, it's because my father works at Holticulture industry, and Jakarta's air aren't suitable for flower, because so many polution and hot. The company grew various tropical flower, like Anthurium, Orchid, Phalaenopsis, and four season flower like Gerbera and Lily. Their Orchid and Phalaenopsis are most popular product accross Indonesia and become the biggest holticulture company in Indonesia. The company also known in Holland, and Asian countries like Japan, Taiwan, Hongkong, & Singapore because the company export most of the product to them. BTW, if you live in Jakarta, you can get their Orchid and Phalaenopsis at Foodhall counter under label Ekakarya Graha Flora ( ´∀`)make sure you check them^^

My father himself works as marketing manager and spoke person for the company as well, and sometime being invited to many exhibition especially to Taiwan, which is TIOS (Taiwan International Orchid Show) the biggest orchid exhibition in the world. Last time my father invited as a judge on ikebana competition, because my father's name is quite famous on orchid industries. Because of that, my father only come home once a week.

Back to topic, because Cikampek is really close to Bandung since they connected through Padalarang freeway my mom decide to took me and my siblings to Bandung. It's quite boring on Cikampek because there are only Industries among places, like automotive, machinery, fertilizer etc. My mom took us to Veteran street to eat Batagor kingsley and Oyen ice, my most favourite dessert. Then go to Bandung Supermall (which already change name to Trans Studio Mall), accompany me to craft shop at ABC street and the last is our favourite mall, Paris Van Java.

On our trip to PVJ mall, i've met something interesting: Daiso!!

If you don't know about this shop, go google it!

It's been a while since i wanna visit Daiso, because i wanna find brush and sponge soap after i read reviews from many blogger. Unfortunately, the shop doesn't stock it, maybe because the shop is quite small so they don't stock many things as much as the bigger one in Jakarta.
Inside Daiso

My mom joined with me few minutes later, and get attracted on how cheap those things are, because there is no mirror when she trying a hat, she ask me to be her kameko and see if the hat fits her lol

My mom <3

Falsies ヾ(´□`* )ノ

But that's not my goal, although it's quite tempting (‘∀’●)

What is my Haul? here they are:

Daiso Haul
 Cleansing pad, Maki or sushi rolling mat, then table hook for bag. i bought the cleansing pad because i heard it helps exfoliate dead skin and make skin look cleaner, after using it for a few days, it help clean my skin, but can't decrease the existance of blackhead =____=". Table hook, actualy it's a redemption of my regret for not buying it at China. My mom bought table hook from china, and offering me to buy it, but i refused. Then i felt guilty after come back to Indonesia lol. I bought Maki since i'm prefer to make my own kimbap or sushi roll for my lunch after i've got to university, because i need something simple to eat. After getting used brought big, lousy lunch box, i decided that i'm want to simplifly my food because it's really embarrasing and troublesome have to brought separate big lunch box again like a kid lol, all in one bag now.

My haul from craft shop

 Recently, i've got myself into crochet to fill my vacant days before go to university. It's quite bothersome if you don't have any activity and stay at home. As a girl, if i don't have much things to do, i will wreak my boredom with window shopping and as you know, it ended with me emptied my bank account ( TДT). After i dive into the crochet world, the shopping urge had gone because i've been busy making things. Internet as usual become my guru to learn basic technique for making amigurumi (stuffed dolls), and i have requests from my friend to make doll and keychain. Just bought some cotton yarn and crochet hooks with different size.

Crochet hook sneak peak
When arrived at the shop, it's really huge! it tingling my fancies a little, and because we don't have much time, i'm brought myself a list and start to pick yarn color like a bolt. The shop owner quite surprised to see my enthusiasm and recommend tools to be paired with the yarn. Within five minutes, i got out with huge plastic bag on my hand ( ´∀`)

I got myself a milimeter block and paper clip to begun my ultimate operation: making scarf for my BF!! it's not your ordinary scarf, because i want to make it with a logo from his favorite series.

Diagram Pattern

I design the pattern to milimeter block so i knew the exact size to fit the scarf. If you know this logo, you are awesome :3. You must be wondering what is the purpose of the paper clip, well those paper clip are for stitch marker, so i don't forget how many row do i made. It's expensive to buy stitch marker, so i make my own after i saw the tutorial from internet.

You can try it as well, if you like maybe i can post my scarf progress (*・∀・)/\(・∀・*)

Thanks for reading, and see you on the next post^^
