Good Morning Jakarta - Part 1

Phatnfierce.com


The view from my hotel room (Sari Pan Pacific), facing the main road of Jalan M.H.Thamrin. The road has been totally clear that morning, since they closed two of its middle lanes to allow the Jakarta folks to jog,walk, and cycle on them every Sunday morning. I was simply impressed, as in a mere few hours later, the road was full of people, looking as if they were having a parade!

Talking about Sari Pan Pacific, I really like its location. It's what I would call "perfect"! However, I did feel as if I was stuck in a bygone era, due to its 1980s interior.

Sculpture in front of the hotel. Since the MoNas (the National Monument) was just a 10-minute walk from my hotel, I went there almost every moring before breakfast while I in Jakarta, to capture the activities in its surroundings. Here are some pictures of what can be seen in the morning around the MoNas.

I love the idea that the roads are closed so people can work out and do healthy activities!

And fishing in the fountain? Unheard of in Malaysia!

Hi Wahdi,

Off topic kejap.

I just found out that enarip has privatized his blog. Hmm, if his blog is not too personal or that he won't mind sharing with me, can I request the access?

Hope you can pass this message to enarip :)

Thanks! >:D<

I love Indonesia very much, due to its culture. And the Indonesians are still preserving their culture until today, unlike Malaysians :P
