Re: Shopping - What & Where to buy in Indonesia

hate to say this but... sanitary pads are very cheap in indonesia. for some brands, it is 1/4 of the price in SG. but must go to the supermarkets that cater to locals, not expats/tourists.

bandung factory outlets have quite nice and affordable clothes too.

Re: Tourism course in Poly

If your maths is strong, you can consider majoring in econs.
Some people would also say that econs is one of the majors in arts which has better prospects.
