01-08-2011 Mama & His Real Jakarta Post

after posting a 'misleading' post about where I visited
(Sorry Ah Qing~)
now here comes the real post about my last 2 weeks trip to
In order to make this post less boring and simpler,
I will just highlight 5 things about Jakarta that I would like to share..

(1) The Food
-Nasi Uduk-
-Nasi Padang-
-Bak Moi-

Means Chicken porridge in Hokkien
They do call it Bak Moi
and I realized they 'import' a lot of Hokkien words in their food names
-Mee Ayam aka Chicken noddle-

(2) My host in Jakarta
and he cooked for me Adobo (Filipino dish)
Thanks a lot Worley!

(3) Transportation
-Motorbike service (Just like Bangkok) aka Ojek-

Even though Jakarta is the biggest city in south east asia
but they do not have railway or LRT system.
What they have is a bus-way system

which is railway-like but using Bus as the medium of transport
People waiting at the platform

(4) People and Culture
-Its bazaar-

-I don't know what's going on too-
People could just take photos with them for free

-Jakarta crazy traffic-


I also tried out Karaoke in Jakarta

According to wikitravel, it is a must try activity in Jakarta
Thanks to Worley for bring me there~

(5) Place of interest that I have visited
-National Monument/Monumen Nasional(Monas)-

And finally I understand why I saw so many 'overly huge' penis statues
or toys..
or whatever when I visited Bali last year.
It actually symbolizes the power as men...
or something like that...
ha ha~
Couldn't really remember...

-Old Jakarta City (Kota Lama)-
Full of talented artists

-Pekan Baru-
When I was taking this picture,

An Indonesian lady suddenly approached me
and asked to take a photo with me
After seeing the first picture,
"Wow...handsome, nak satu lagi! ( I want one more)"

-Art Gallery-
-Plaze Senayan-
A shopping mall that we went purposely to see this
Last but not least,
not to forget also the Cathedral Church that I have visited
-Click here if you haven't seen it-

That's all this beautiful city~
I love you Jakarta
Its day look..
Its night look...
