14th July 06, Friday
This weekend, my parents r free to go 4 a holiday, so off we go, all except Angah, who's unable to come due to work. Flight 9am, 1.45 hours to jakarta. breakfast in da golden lounge n plane. i sat with adik,and papa,mama with uncle isa.
Sampai kat Soekarno Hatta Intern. Airport. Tempat Dian kejar Rangga dlm Ada apa dgn cinta. fuh.. terus terimbau kembali scene itu.. haha.
then we were taken to Shangri-la Jakarta.. I noticed (and also were told) of strong presence of police on all 5-star hotels due to recent bombings. Every car was checked, n us had to go through a electronic detector to go into the hotel lobby, my 1st experience of this kind.
Then we have lunch at a great Padang restaurant. wow, splendid food.
Later Papa n Uncle Isa went to play golf (or Golof in Bahasa Indonesia) at Imperial Golf club, and Pak Supir (indonesian for driver) called pak Mosli brought mama, adik n me at a big supermall called Supermal Karawaci. spent about 3 hours there, in which 2 Siti nurhaliza's videos came out on their large screens. Wow, siti's big over here.
Of course, our accent (tried to speak indonesian as best as i can) n clothings (especially mama's tudung) gave away our origins.. but all in all indonesians are friendly n look up to us malaysians.
Then we went pickup papa n uncle isa, had dinner at another delicious indonesian restaurant, n went back to the hotel. Adik n my rooms r a few doors from mama's.. Adik slept with me.

Morning came, papa went golfing as early as 6am, another course. mama, me n adik turun breakfast, n Pak Mosli drives us to Ancol, (like a big disneyland).. its huge! with seaworld n dream world, Adik chose Dreamworld (dunia fantasi).. n we spent the whole day there.. rides, rollercoaster .. the lot.
We also went to some prominent places like National monument, President palace, etc..
To make the story short, on Sunday, after the morning swim n breakfast, we went shopping in Mangga Dua, a big complex of bagains, so many designer bags, shoes n clothes.. murah!
About 6.30pm we took a flight back to KLIA.. all in all, Jakarta's a gigantic metropolis, with zillions of people, a lot live in squaters, under flyovers, off the roads, and the traffic are crazy! traffic jam is so bad, at one time, took us about an hour to move 500m. it's a lot of huge trees n alot cooler than KL. indonesians a very friendly n hospitable.

The next day, Jakarta n some other places were rocked by a quake 6.8reichter scale, with a small tsunami hit, thank god we leave a day b4. Jakarta werent badly hurt, but tall hotels/building swayed... huhu scary tots. we were on the top floor.. 31st floor.
