Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia; the busiest and 24hours active city in Indonesia. Thanks God, I’ve been live there, witness the hype city of Indonesia, bad-ass traffic jam, spend hours in car, fastest growth city in Indonesia, feeling in love, unlock the better me, and many things to describe; soon, very soon I’ll return there back.
I will try to randomly post Jakarta A~Z into five parts.
A; Abang. it usually to call a man in Jakarta (mister in English) but usually for blue collar, and mid old man. for older one, you should call ’em with Bapak.
B; Bajaj. This is a 3 wheels public transportation, that only took you outside protocol road-usually at traditional market area. with no legal road meter, you must be smart enough to bargain it.
C; Combro. Its a traditional food from Jakarta, it made from potato wedges with spicy melting herb inside, fried and crisp outside. You can find it in traditional market less than a buck for 5 pieces.
D; Djayakarta. This is the old town of Jakarta, you can find the ancient of Jakarta here, it located at the north of Jakarta. Most of Djayakarta dominate by netherland theme, not only the building, but also the road still using blocks.
E; Electronic. This new future feature will start from Jakarta e.g. eMoney, eCommerce, eBanking, etc. also, all of electronic stuff will first launch in Jakarta as the benchmark to other cities. When it success – it will bring positive vibe to other cities in Indonesia.
