traVelog: Jakarta, Indonesia (Pt.1)

Wasssuppp Shaz: Have Tech, Will Travel! Actually not... technology to help you travel is just an added accessory. With or without it you will still reach your destination. Just like me... yes, i do have a GPS but only with the Malaysian Map. Not counting the one on my iPHONE. Well, i still do consider that i only have one! HAhaha...

Was in Jakarta for my holiday recently and i enjoyed it as much as i'd enjoy being in Singapore. Seriously, there's a few sides of Jakarta. It's not the slump that you'd always think it is - derived from movies shown in cinemas. No... it's far better than that.


In fact, its malls are HUGE! If you think we have awesome malls like Pavilion, The Gardens, MV, 1Utama, Curve, Ikano... think again - their malls well there are a few sides to it as well. The ones for the rich, average and normal people! Other than that... their malls are really HUGE! Filled with designer brands that you may not even find opened in Kuala Lumpur or Singapore.

Yea, we don't have such malls here in Malaysia. Even though we may have 1 or 2... the design to it is not as big and awesome looking like here.

Went to Jakarta via MAS - Awesome Get The DEAL Promotion which made it only RM249 for a return ticket + airport tax = RM 300. A good deal indeed. Stayed at The Swissbel Hotel in Jakarta, awesome hotel. Although i paid quite a hefty price for a 4 day stay - RM750 phew... it was still worth it la for an awesome holiday.

Malaysia Airlines

Met up with some local friends there, former collegemate Stepfanus and Wife Erlynda. Met up with my CS frens too Philip and his friend. And thanks to Ernie for being the body guard who protected me all the way through airport security and the city of Jakarta.

NO we did NOT visit any monuments or museums... didn't have time for this. Really... we didn't take much photos there! We took photos of ourselves more like as if we are locals... anyways spent 1 whole day in Bandung - thanks to Stepfanus!

Enjoy the photos...
