Jakarta Trip

Just got back from my Jakarta trip on Monday and it was tiring because my flight was at 7.30am local time and I'm yet to fully unpack my luggage up till today. :P

Anyway, my trip was good as I get to fulfill what the company requires me to do there, and at the same time I get to watch my favourite badminton tournament live. I was holding the pass and hence I could sit at the commentary booth without having to sit at the crowded viewers area.


Nice view huh? :)

I also get a chance to see the Dinos Alive event which was held next to the stadium. This event was sold by my company and it was launched on last Saturday, what a right time I'm there to witness the event, it was real cool and I hope this event will be sold to Malaysia too!


The accommodation was very good too, The Sultan Hotel where I'm staying at has very good security and the service is always prompt & friendly, the room of course is very spacious and comfortable as well.


The food is not bad too, I had to order room service on the 1st night as the matches finished only around 8pm and I was too tired to dine out, and I ordered the Oxtail Soup (called "Sop Buntut" in Bahasa Indon, I was so reluctant to pronounce it when I made the order so I just say it in English, hehe :P)

Yummy Oxtail Soup with Rice

Of course I won't miss the chance to try out the famous JCO Donuts, which I have not tried in KL before due to the constant long queue. I've picked the Almond, Oreo & Tiramisu. It's so nice.... don't think my Jakarta trip is complete without eating the JCO Donuts..... :)


And how could I not try the local cup noodles (always the best food for traveller's! hehe :P)? It's simply yummy. hehe....

One for supper and the other for breakfast :P

Last but not least, aside from work I did manage to do some (ahem...ahem...) shopping in Jakarta, Plaza Senayan & Senayan City is more like Pavilion & KLCC type of shopping malls, whereas ITC Kuningan & Ambassador Mall are middle class shopping mall that I find more suitable to me. Kids clothing here are massive and affordable, what a heaven for the shopper mums! :)

Cloudsters said...

heh, interesting that your first positive point regarding the hotel was its good security (tells us something about Jakarta)!

Also, if there were money riding on it, would one be correct to guess that you placed your cup noodles on one of those round coffee-shop tables before taking your shot? [can see what looks like the rounded edge of such a table at the border of the photo]

Yes the children clothing are cheap and nice, good variety too.

The hotel room is lovely and the security is tight, before I was there I did worry about my own safety though....

Watching badminton Live from a strategic view is surely enjoyable.

Well I did enjoyed my leisure time while working in Jakarta. :)
