We restricted ourselves to the apartment and the mall, except for an excursion to the excellent Seribu Rasa (1000 Flavors) restaurant with Connie and Mark on Saturday evening.
While Kem Chicks, Metro department store, and most restaurants are affordable, the majority of the stores in Pacific Place are not. I don't think I'll be frequenting Tiffany, Bulgari, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, etc. any time soon. Of course, I could decide to buy a car one idle afternoon:
Michael was looking for a batik shirt. Although those he liked at Metro were too expensive, we did buy three wisps of silk batik. The green and peach one shown in two pictures below was our extravagance, but the colours will look good in either the roof room in London or the converted garage in France.
In Batik Keris, a chain we remember well from our previous stays here, Michael found his shirt (to be worn for the first time tomorrow: Kodak moment) and we continued the batik motif in purchases of wrapping paper and wooden containers to hold kitchen utensils.
We finished up—of course—at Kem Chicks, where among bagfuls of other groceries were the mangosteens shown on the shelf in yesterday's post.True color
At 6:30 we met Connie and Mark in the lobby. Their driver, Purwanto, soon appeared to take us in air-conditioned comfort to Seribu Rasa. Remaining photos devoted to this memorable meal, all dishes shared.
