The country is famous for the batik prints on their clothes. Everywhere you go you can find a batik shirt, blouse, shorts and even pyajamas.

Some Filipinos have brought the barong cloth and had batik prints put on them. Best of both worlds.

This shot was taken at the Pasar Ubud in Bali.

This hole in the wall joint is so succesful. It has an unassuming entrance but has a very big hall. They specialize in Achenese food and the fish head curry is perfect.

The joys of eating. I really have to start running more.

Happy Independence day to Indonesia. Indonesians are very nationalistic and they dispay their flags everywhere during national day. We were in Bali and even the boats had the Indonesian flag.

I usually take an early flight when i visit the branches. My favourite breakfast at the airport is the Bakso (Beef balls) soup with noodles. They are like fish balls but the use beef instead of fish. This has nothing to do with soup #5. Remember it’s beef balls… not balls of the bull.

Yummy but it is pepper hot. They sure love their spices in this country.

We are slowly settling into our new home. After a few day in heavy traffic we decided to stay close to office and also to look for schools in the vicinity. We were lucky. There was a new school opening up in Thamrin and they were taking kids up to Grade 2.

This is the view from our current unit.

Apa Kabar!

Seven days in Jakarta and I have gained close to three kilos. The variety of food is great but I have got to seriously start controlling my food intake.

We will miss this! May 4, 2010
