Update from Jakarta

Jakarta

So, I’m a bit more relaxed now after a nice shower so I thought I’d post a short update from Jakarta while watching the American Idol results show (although I already know the results – yay for the winner!) and waiting for dinner time with Joe, Nicole, Hanis, Thomas and Isabelle.

The trip’s been quite hectic – no thanks to the infamous Jakarta traffic – so I haven’t had a chance to update the blog much. I’ve spent about RM15-20 on phone charges, mostly for data. If you’re following me on Twitter, you would have seen some updates from me.

Most of our time have been spent shopping. In fact, we didn’t do any sightseeing at all (other than watching the traffic go by … I mean, stand still). We found a couple of shopping stores in Bandung which were really interesting and after some Tweeting, was recommended a place similar in Jakarta, Tebet, which is also known as Little Bandung.

I’m broke!

Today, we spent the whole day at the Garuda HQ and training centres, but that’s for another post. For now, I’ve got to head to dinner with the gang, and tomorrow, we’re gonna laze about in the hotel.

NO MORE JAKARTA TRAFFIC FOR ME (except to the airport I guess). I’m going mental!

Until then!

    erm, how do we tweet via handphones if we’re in Malaysia?? I mean, there’s no Malaysia in list of countries to choose if you wanna tweet via your mobile.

  7. I know how you felt back then. I was in Jakarta this year and its worse than ever. I really hope they improve the situation soon, since i travel there a few times per year for business reasons
