The final day

This is a bakso soup
The local cendol
The durian tong shui
Nice and yummy

And we went to a shop and makan

[Fabulous image removed by Author]

Love this fried banana with cheese and chocolate
yum yum
Saw these few youngster
with their high bicycle
so cool
And a horse car
i should have take a ride
miss it pula
This is the only kitten i saw
Heard that after the explosion of the volcano
All animals died
so u cant see any dogs and cats on the street
And this is the only one
End of the day
we tried their Nasi Padang
its actually like our economic rice
