Water Fountain at Cihampelas Walk, Bandung

This long weekend (Monday was a national holiday), we decided to visit some of my mother's relatives in Bandung and take a little time out after the terrible loss of my aunt. The city is one of the most favorite travel destinations here in Indonesia, also known as Paris van Java or Flower City.

I used my mobile camera to shot the water fountain at Cihampelas Walk, a popular site full of shops and restaurants. It was really relaxing to stroll around and taking photos.

Since there are also some nice red decorations in this photo, I thought that I could join Ruby Tuesday #29 with Watery Wednesday #26. Have a great day, everyone!



Ehm, I couldn't resist to upload another photo for Ruby Tuesday. Meet the additional member of Power Ranger SPD posing in his new suit right after purchased in Cihampelas. After trying several costumes, like Batman, Spiderman and Superman... he finally made up his mind. I am preparing myself for the motorbike ride to his sister's school. People tend to stare, if you escort superheros. But, I think I'm getting used to it. So far I already went on a mission with Power Ranger Override and Iron Man. Does anyone know how to get a child out of his hero suit?

The arcade with that lovely fountain looks like a wonderful place to stroll around and enjoy the fresh air. I'm sorry about the loss of your beloved aunt. Thanks for visiting my RT post. Hi from sunny Cal...

LOL! I was thinking the combo shot was quite effective -- but I can SEE why you felt compelled to share that second Ruby! It's been a loooooong time since I've had a Power Ranger in my midst -- but this brings back FABULOUS memories!

I had no idea the Power Rangers were still around. They were popular when my kids were little -- 20 years in the cartoon superhero business is quite a feat. Look at the ones who've faded into obscurity in that same time period.

And no, I don't know how to get the kid out of the suit. You may just have to wait until it falls apart.

I love fountains, this one seems to be a lovely one. The power ranger guy is cute too...

The Power rangers, I remember them well. I remember when our daughter was in first grade (1994). At the Halloween parade of students, it had to be at least 30% Power Ranger costumes. It was amazing, but to see them so popular again defies description. Your son looks so fine as a Ranger!

Sherrie said...

Hi!
Love that fountain! As for the superhero suit, time, time, time, and be patient. It will come! My son had a pair of rain boots he wore constantly even to be. But it finely wore off after awhile. Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great evening!

Your first one is a great shot for a combo, but I'm sorry, the Superhero takes it as the winner this week ;-)

Please accept my condolences on the tragic loss of your beloved aunt. What a waste. Yes, all must take care on the road.

And on a much happier note, I totally love the red power ranger suit. It rocks! He will never take it off, get used to it. So cute!

ROSIDAH said...

I think you are right Sara, it is day 3 now and no signs for turning it into the laundry.

Thank you for your condolence.

napaboaniya said...

I remember my family members and I had to fight with my son to get the yellow PowerRanger suit off him!! He wore it for days!!
I hope your son will allow you to wash it hahahahah :)

Tess said...

He is really so proud there wearing that suit! he is like my son who loves to wear spider man suit.
My condolence. I hope and pray for peace and comfort to your family.
That fountain is really pretty.

ROSIDAH said...

I think it would be great fun to join forces of two power rangers and a spider man :)
