|#1 Welcome to Jakarta, Indonesia|
This was my maiden trip to Jakarta! Familiar language. But I kinda hoping to bumped into any signboard in Hangul. *puke*
Once I exited the entrance, I walked to the left side of the airport & took the Bluebird taxi. Masa tu memang ramai lah Pak2 Teksi yang offer tapi ku pandang sepi. Bluebird tetap pilihan utama, sekian.
|# 2 Macet a.k.a traffic jammed |
Something I couldn't run away from. This was my first time in Jakarta but already I heard tons of 'stories' about the horrible road congestion from family & friends who've been to Jakarta.
|# 3 Monumen Selamat Datang a.k.a Monumen Buderan HI|
"The statue depicts two bronze statues of a man and a woman, waving in a welcoming gesture symbolizes the openness of the Indonesian nation to welcome the visitors of the Asian Games IV" -wiki-
|#4 One of the famous coffee shop in Jakarta|
Ikut hati mau singgah lepak ngeteh kejap...
|#5 Mini naik Level 5|
|#6 Ms P|
Suddenly dinding bata Warung Tinggi jadi background kami malam tu.
|#7 Waiting for teksi|
Sebab plan mau ngeteh di Magnum Cafe punah, mall pun bakalan tutup so we decided to go somewhere else. Malam masih muda, rugi lah kalau balik hotel awal.
|#8 Warkop a.k.a Warung Kopi|
|#9 Ahli rombongan|
Was super hungry because I haven't feed the tummy since evening. Mari singgah makan.
|#11 Pasar malam at Merdeka Square|
This was our second destination. Woot! Wish list to visit Monas; ticked. Didn't get to visit the museum located beneath the monument though. Kali ni tiada ayat 'next time' sebab belum ada plan to repeat Jakarta in the near future. Ngeks.
|#12 Local snack|
Was about to buy this tauhu (sebab masih lapar) but Ms P stopped me. "Banyak giler kat bilik" she said. Borong gejrot kah minah ni semua.
|#13 Monumen Nasional a.k.a MONAS|
It was said President Sukarno ask to construct a national monument comparable to Eiffel Tower; in front of the Presidential Palace following the recognition of Dutch to Indonesian Independence. Iin commemoration of ndonesia government returned to Jakarta from Yogjakarta.
|#14 Cuci mata|
|#15 Mobile toilet|
I dare NOT to enter this regardless how desperate I might be.
|#16 My kesayangan Ms C|
Susah payah ambil angle ni, dalam pekat malam sebab langsung tiada lampu area belakang Monas ni. Walhal boleh jak suruh sorang Pakcik ni ambilkan, tapi kena bayar 50k Rupiah lah. Hence explained kegigihan kami ketik banyak kali just to get this pic. Stingy enough!
|#17 My first bajai ride|
Sebab ndak larat untuk jalan kaki from Merdeka Square to our hotel in Jalan Juanda, maka nego lah sama Pakcik Bajai. Ms L did the tawar-menawar part, aku bab ni memang failed total.
|#18 Istiqlal Mosque|
View from our hotel room. Senyum lebar nampak gambar Ms C ambil the day before. Insha Allah tercapai impian to set foot upon this largest mosque in Southeast Asia the day after.
Lepas mandi jak, terus lupa kejadian untuk supper tauhu gejrot. Malam tu tidur dengan super lena, kunun penat sangatlah kan.
