Our first drink we had at the Mega mall food court. This is Apulkat Jus (Avocada Juice). Avocada is very popular in Pontianak. You can find this juice being serve in almost every restaurant and coffee shops in Pontianak. And also they are famous with their "Bak So" or "Bak Ee" (meatballs). They have bak so in their soup and noodles.
This is the saloon "Johny Andrean" in Mega mall where we had our creme bath and reflexology. I reckoned our salons in Kuching should have this service too. The creme bath is really fantastic. It massages our scalps and neck and right to our shoulders. The price for pampering ourselves was incredible and you won't believe it, the whole package that took about 2hrs, pampering with massages only cost us less then RM15. But I guess if this were to be in Kuching, the price would be in 3 figures.
This is the Hotel Kini where we stayed.
This is our room. Very clean and comfortable. The price for a night is 145,000.00 rp (approx. equivalent to RM43).
This is Pasar Sudirman....situated not far from our hotel (walking distance). It's some sort like pasar malam/arcade. Where you can buy goods and bargain.
This is Santo Yoseph (St.Joseph Cathedral) a Roman Catholic Church in Pontianak. The church is a walking distance from the hotel where we stayed.
This is the souvenir market or what they call it as "toko sopernet".... you can find souvenirs and pets store and they even sell helmets.. The helmets are really nice with knockout designs but in reality the helmets have no 'sirim' labelled to it. Nice to look at but not safe to use.
This is the famous Pecal Leyley in Pontianak. Pecal is fried chicken and leyley is fried catfish. The sambal is made from cashew nuts, tomatoes, chilies and shallots. We had it take away for dinner.
This is the becha man that took us from our hotel to Mega mall and the ride took around half an hour to reach and it cost us around 20,000.00rp (RM6) for the both of us.
The becha is really small but the guy just won't let us take another becha. So both of us had to squeeze....the ride was fine and fun because we had sight seeing while on our way to our destination but not that comfortable for me though, I wish I had a smaller butt. And just imagined we are so heavy but the becha man did not stop even for a red light, I reckoned if he were to stop, I think he would have to struggle to start paddling, so might as well he didn't at all until we reach mega mall.
