Warning... long post today. :) I'll post the card first. I have a quick card to share with you. Awhile back I won some stamp sets from Schlosser Designs and the one of the set is the Cupcake set. Love the sprinkle borders. Combined it with some delightful twine from The Twinery, you got a CAS but fun card.
I also want to thank everyone for their comments on the pictures I've been sharing. I am glad that you enjoy them. Since hubby couldn't go with me on this trip, he asked me to take lots of pictures. So, I try to look at everything from the tourist perspective. Which is not hard to do, because since I live in the States, I learned to appreciate Indonesia and what it has to offer. If you asked me these back when I was teenager, I probably wouldn't feel the way I am now.
I think, that's the benefit of scrapbooking as well. You look at everything from a new perspective. Things you want people to know, to remember, to help them understand you, where you coming from, etc. So, without further delay, here's some random pics. Enjoy... :)
The skating rink inside Pondok Indah Mall. Over there, mall tends to go up high. Could be anywhere from 3 floors to 10 floors or more. The ones that I visited I think the most is 10 floors. I do love shopping there. LOL, first it's easy to find my size and second their style is a bit different and every now & then I just love wearing stuff that make people ask where did you get it and I can proudly says it's from Indonesia.
Too bad they don't allow me to take picture inside the store, otherwise I'll show you some of the gorgeous design from Indonesian designers.
This snack place is also inside a mall. That's my brother on the left, spoiling me rotten by getting me all the snacks I want. It's hard not to go crazy and buy everything here, since many of the snack reminds me of my childhood snack. From different kind of peanuts, dried fruit, etc.
Indonesia is famous for many things, including their wood cardving artistry. This one was located at the lobby of The Four Seasons Hotel. Click on the picture to see larger image and hopefully you can see all the details on this carving. Granted, growing up, I do not appreciate Indonesia's art whatsoever. I do now.
One of the original public transportation, called "Bajaj". It's a 3 wheel fancy scooter. LOL, that's the best I can describe it. I used to ride this when I was in college there. The driver in front and the back has seat big enough for 2 people. It's loud and noisy. Usually you use this for a ride that's not too far, like around the neighborhood.
