Hello everyone am back again- this time, with my shopping guide. YAY

As you can see in my pictures above and below here- yes the title speaks itself too, its another Factory Outlet in my town ( locally known as FO ) called Paberik Badjoe that I like to recommend to you. You might want to list it to your shopping destination next time you shop till drop in Bandung-the shopping heaven to many tourist.

Located at Jl. Sukarno Hatta No.573 Bandung (exit toll Buah Batu/ Buah Batu highway), this FO is quite far from Dago, Riau, Setiabudhi or other areas that most Shopping spot and FOS seems to be in. Should I say Pabriek Badjoe is definitely not for the faint hearted or those without the shopping stamina even so, I think Paberik Badjoe is worth a visit and you might find what you want here.

Before I go further, I should thanks to my youngest brother for this post.  I know this store from him.  Ha. 
The story was like this: we were on our way to Carefour to shop grocery: we talked along the way then my brother suddenly come up with this FO called Pabriek Badjoe that he said located not far from the supermarket we were heading and he asked me if  I want to check it out and I said, " We can do the grocery shop after, lets go there now! " so in short we heading straight to Pabriek Badjoe instead and spent there for hours.  I couldn't find clothes that I like with my size tho- I am size 6 :P  so I ended up with didn't buy anything plus we sure have to canceled the grocery shop that day haha but I went there again after for several times with youngest brother and now I want to share what I know about this FOS with you all here.

I say this FO has interesting concept.

Starting from its name which I think quite catchy.
The words:  Paberik and Badjoe are an old script for Pabrik and Baju in Indonesian (Bahasa)- Pabrik Baju means Clothing Factory in English.

Old script or ejaan lama was use during the time Indonesia was a Dutch colony. At that period of time, the Latin alphabet was introduced and a number of Dutch spellings were used to write Indonesian but as part of the independence movement in 1930s, the Indonesian language was standardised and the term Bahasa Indonesia was adopted as the name of the language and  the spelling of oe was changed to u in 1947. The Indonesian spelling system were introduced officially in 1972  with all other major changing as explained here.  

On the other hand, I don't think the owner of this FOS use the words to name the store without reason coz this FO is literally has their own clothing factory located just behind the store.
The factory, for many many years have been well know for their famous export oriented brands but has local market too like WRANGLER (Jeans) WOOD, JOCKEY, COLOR BOX , LEE, TIRA , ET CETERA and of course THE EXECUTIVE  ( working wear ), which I fan!

My  impression when I first entered the store was that this store looks o...kay.  I consider myself as visual, I really care to what I see and the interior of the building is much like a warehouse to me but its clean and the changing room are big , there's pictures of old Bandung hanging on the wall and an antique car surrounded by mannequins. Inside the store, theres a small cafe also and if you brings kids, they can play at the kids zone they provided. I wish they have more plants around the store area, I like when the place is green with lots of trees and plants, its much cozy.

Anyway, find Blazer, Shirt, Skirts,  Blouse,Tank top, Tee shirt, Polo, Jeans, Shoes, Belt, Kids dress, Swimsuit, Jacket and more at this factory outlet - they sell them all at bargain prices!

Not only that,  sometimes you come across other good garments like Quicksilver, Armani, Esprit but don't expect it all seasons and oh you should also check the items carefully before you purchase them as besides Grade A (best quality overruns) some are rejected original branded item due to the not so neat stitches, logos, buttons etc

I am sorry I cant show you any pic for those items tho- I couldn't took any pics inside the store! sorry!!!

Well, that's all I can share about Pabriek Badjoe and again- before I go, they don't pay me for this and they don't even know am writing this, its just my personal review and  hope its informative enough. ^-*
Happy Shopping!

  8. Hello Adif, thank you for dropping by!^^
    To ur questions; end of Mei to first June, ok. Well. May-June are not wet season but it keeps raining tho,sometimes heavy rain Maybe it will stop on June. Is this your first visit?
    the best way to get around is by car rental. Try Mulia car rental- Many tourist like their service so I heard, they charge 300K for Avanza but of course there many car rental you can choose with variant prices. There's angkutan kota also, only cost 1000-3500 rupiah but I think it wont be effective if you want to explore Bandung with limited time coz each have different route. If u prefer taxi, make sure they use Argo- Blue bird taxi is the best, I always use it everywhere in Indo.

    For goodies, what goodies you look. There's many options. Maybe you can try this store: Souvenir Shop, in Jl. Cihampelas no.39
    Toko Sin Sin, in Jl. Braga 59 Sells various high quality handicraft and souvenirs, including wayang golek (wood puppet), wayang kulit (leather puppet), angklung, leather and crocodile skin handicraft (mostly bags, wallets, and belts), wood carvings, Indonesian traditional silverworks, paintings, and even Indonesian furniture. This is a shop with very long history, started even before Indonesia gained independence.

  10. Hello Adif,
    Just catching up here.

    You are so welcome. Hope you have wonderful time in during your stay in Bandung!

    Then you should try bakso. I like when its spicy!!! May I recommend bakso urat or bakso rudal. For mie/noodle, Mie ayam or mie kocok are yummy also. I like Mie Gang Monyet-they have a counter at BIP years ago but the move somewhere and I dont know where they are now. Anyway there's a small Warung Bakso,at Jalan Purnawarman which not so bad you might want to try. Its walk far from BEC (Bandung electronic center)or you can also try Bakso at Kartika Sari at Jalan Dago, well these many sell bakso actually hehe I am sure you can find it easily.
