No time yet to post pics of Barcelona... After more than a year's break, finally, finally, decided to work for a few weeks. This time it's an assignment in Jakarta. I have never been to Jakarta nor Indonesia before - so it's interesting to find out for myself what the city is like.

The food is great! No wonder all my Indonesian friends are always talking/searching for nice food when they are away from home. There's lots of variety and everything tastes so good. In the past 3 weeks, we've ate local delights, Tony Romas, japanese, thai & dim sum and this week I've promised myself - no more stuffing myself for lunch and dinner.

The shopping malls are very nice, cinemas are nicer than what we have at home, and I find many interesting sculptures and statues in the city - I don't know what they all symbolise but it's beautiful. There's the really poor areas in the city as well and polution is bad and many smokers around.

I don't think I will have time to go around to see more of Indonesia, but certainly it is a place I'd like to visit again...
