our flight departs at 4.30 and arrive at 5.45 (local time). indonesia is 1 hour late than our time. subuh pukul 5.. aiyoo. we boarded KLM and ticket costs about rm450. air asia is much cheaper, rm200+ provided you guys book the ticket earlier.
we arrived at jakarta and my supervisor's husband picked us up at bandara (airport) and the trip from the airport to her house took about 1 1/2 hours. macet bangatt... jakarta adalah bandar yang senantiasa macet. we had our dinner at restoran dadu. 6 adults = Rp100 000 (rm35-40).
we went to Taman Mini "Indonesia Indah". the price per person is Rp9000 (~rm3). here, you can go to each part of indonesia. hehe. macam taman mini malaysia lah kot. here, they build replicas of buildings from each part of indonesia. sumatra, bali etc. we didnt went to each taman mini because the park was soo huge. here, everthing is extensive. tanah besar la katakan. we manage to visit 'bali'. we also had our lunch there which cost about Rp112 000.
then we went to the airport (again) to fetch 2 more trip members. on the way we passed by monas (monumen nasional) the tip of the structure is made of gold. 50kg of it. cuba la panjat dan curi. hehe
after lunch, we went to pasar tanah abang, again. and this time the real shopping craziness begins. banyak woo kami beli. then we went to serina mall, lebih kurang macam sogo lah. i bought a 'gendang' and a musical instrument called 'hujan hujan'. it is beautifully decorated with colourful painting. both of it costs about Rp500 000 (~rm240).
we reached back jakarta about 1 am local time. pheuww.. penat. but, it was worth it.
then, at about 6.30 local time, i flew back to malaysia. and here i am. there is no place like home.
