Visited 'Ranah Minang'( in Minangkabau Language, meaning ' Tanah Minang' in BM ) with my parents and my youngest brother, just a week after the most recent earthquake which struck off West Sumatera Province. Well, it was kinda 'going back to the root' kind of visit since my ancestors were Minangkabau, both from mama and ayah's sides. So, what can I say, breathtaking sceneries, delicious food, affordable goods...mama shopped like mad! But then, as I myself managed to buy 2 pairs of very cute shoes, I just couldn't say I wasn't satisfied at all even though I still have lots of Indonesian Rupiahs with me when I returned to Malaysia.
