...Indonesia...Day 1...Jakarta

d group @ Soekarno-Hatta airport anyone...
these boys were awed by Hermes @ d museum
LCCT was our destination in d wee hours of d morning for our flight to Jakarta. D group for this trip is led by Prof Mansor (d Dean) n consisted of d dep deans n HoDs, while I represented d URP dept...with my Sayang tagging along of course. We would be visiting 4 uni in Jakarta n see their programmes n d possibility of engaging in students/staff/research xchange n collaboration.

...d usual

somewhere over d water separating mainland Asia n Jawa island

alhamdullillah...selamat landing in Soekarno-Hatta int'l airport...this is their statutes not far from d airport. u may notice of d lingering haze in d air...probably d city is always covered with jerubu

houses...very likely squatters... lining along d river...which is being deepened by d kapal koreks... These people probably suffer d most during any major flooding in d city

Jakarta n machet (traffic jam) synonymous. N many 'traders' took this opportunity to sell macam2 stuff to d stuck motorists...such as that kakak (abang laa...) in black n white cap...captive market la kata kan...

...n one way of Jakarta overcoming this congestion woe is by providing busway (buslane)...n with a staff in charge of security in every Transjakarta bus. We were told that if any passenger lost something while on d bus...hfon, wallets, one would be allowed to disembark until d missing item is found

Our 1st stop was this area which was originally developed by d Dutch. This building is now d Museum Sejarah Jakarta

fotoing in front of d museum... n d ladies. At d back is d Pos Indonesia building...facing d museum n with a plaza separating them

n of course...there's a lot of hawkers around

d sign stated that d building was constructed in 1707 n completed in 1710 by d Dutch

we met a lot of students sketching within d plaza...may be a fav hangout for them. This particular dude looks quite garang...hihi was makan time...we hopped on d bus n shifted to Salero Jumbo...specialising in Padang food

fags must be cheap this sign is using d real thing

foto op at Salero was raining cats n dogs by that time

we headed to Mini Indonesia next...where all cultures within d country were showcased...but as it was raining, we just ronda d place on d bus. Snapped this Minangkabau house from d bus...

on d way to d hotel, d bus made a detour for gas in this village...

...while @ d gas station, I stepped out of d bus n checked things out. BTW, ban is's tampal tayar for u...

then we joined another infamous machet to get to our hotel... U may notice d signs over d street...Ancol is where they have various theme parks while Tj Priok is d city's port

after checking in @ Golden Boutique Hotel, this is d scene observed from our room...Jakartans coming back from work. U can see several monuments in d well as d jerubu

...after a breather...we r ready to go for dinner...this is at d hotel's lobby. We were seating on a Chesterfield which have been favored by some of our friends from Notts.

d group looking very satisfied after a hearty meal... this is another kind of meal...u can find this type of warung scattered all over Jakarta
