Going back tomorrow

I’ll be going back to Jakarta tomorrow. But will stop by at one of the cities we’re gonna pass by to overnight. My Dad’s not gonna do a long-haul drive from Solo to Jakarta in one day. It’s too far and kesian him le.

Photos update after I’ve reached home πŸ™‚

Anywayyy…

Happy Idul Fitri for my Moslem friends! πŸ™‚
mohon maaf lahir batin (you forgive me or not?)

SIngapore oh Singapore…I miss KL…

I’ve left KL yesterday afternoon and headed to the land of lion.

So now I’m stranded in Singapore. Lol.
Not really stranded lar. I’ll be here for approx 5-6/7 days.

So how the hell am I here in the land of lion? Well, to spend my holiday, and to look for a scoop of diamonds (if you get what I mean. lol)

But honestly, I’d prefer KL to Singapore although I’ve been here for lots of times before. Maybe cos I’ve spent 3 years in Malaysia before, so I kinda like it there.

What I like about Singapore?
1. The safety
2. The cleanliness
3. The way they arrange everything neatly in order
4. The convenient public transport.
5.

Can’t think of any. lol

Ohhhh I miss KL >.<

Anyway, gotta go. Gonna meet Hui2 and Doris Jie2 in Orchard to have lunch together πŸ™‚

Home sweet home =D

I am home!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

After a long haul flight, I’ve finally reached my home sweet home in Jakarta ^^

Luckily, there was no delay, and we were allowed to have excess baggages (our baggages were all overweight, anyway. LOL). 11 of us and all of us brought loads of stuffs back home. Just some who brought not that many.

From BJ-GZ we used China Southern. The plane isn’t really nice, but it’s ok la.

Otw from Guang Zhou – Jakarta, when we were supposed to have landed, we didn’t. So a friend and I were like “why this plane isn’t landed until now?”.

After awhile, we had an announcement from the captain that there was a problem with the motor, but now it’s solved. We was like o_O OMG, a problem with the MOTOR? It can’t be taken that simply right? Luckily there was nothing bad happened. Phewwwww….Sooo relieve.

BUTTTT…still, I’ve missed my flight to KL!!!! Dammit!!
Need to look for a new tix, but just now I’ve tried to search online, and all of the major airlines’ are expensive T______________T

Pray I can get a cheaper tix tmrw…

Stupido dumb dumb airline

Note: this was typed when I felt quiet angry with the stupido airline.

I’m supposed to go back to Jakarta TOMORROW, but suddenly earlier on the Garuda person called me to inform the our flight tomorrow is CANCELLED! wtf!
They said that the airplane broke down.

Ok la, still can understand that since I know Garuda is not a first class airlines like Cathay Pacific, SQ, or what. BUT, what pisses me off is…

WHY COULDN’T THEY MAKE A FLIGHT FOR US WITH ONE OF THEIR JOINT AIRLINES?? HOW IF THE PASSENGERS REALLY NEED TO GO BACK TO JAKARTA TOMORROW?!!

And I’m one of them. I am supposed to go to Malaysia this coming MONDAY, but because of the stupid dumb dumb airlines, I couldn’t manage to go there. Sumore, my tix to KL is the Super Saver one, and MAS said I can’t change the date. So there goes my (mum’s) USD 51!! (Yeah, it’s super cheap. the tix price itself is USD0 -YES, you read it correctly..ZERO! and so I just had to pay for the tax which is USD 51)

What’s more, they can’t even give me a refund for my loss of tix to KL!!

It is our sincere hope that through such efforts Garuda will remain a source of great national pride for Indonesia, and that we will continue to be one of Asia’s most respected airlines


That sentence was taken from Garuda Indonesia’s website.

Yeah, so much for the respected airlines. You won’t be respected! Even the service you offer is NOT worth the money. For our flight to Beijing, you use Boeing 737-800 which the aisle is NARROW, and the seats arrangement is 3 – 3. What’s more? the seats are small you can hardly be comfortable on them! And there’s no individual TV in front of your seat. Can you imagine a long-haul flight of approximately 8 hrs (including the transit time in Spore), without any TV? O-M-G! Do you think we just want to sleep in the plane? Get real la, you stupidos!

And you are already famous for OFTEN being delayed, I mean your flights. Can you, as the biggest airlines in Indonesia, make some changes and prove yourself as the SOURCE OF GREAT NATIONAL PRIDE FOR INDONESIA???!!!! YOU CERTAINLY ARE NOT A GREAT NATIONAL PRIDE!! Well, at least for me!

Cathay Pacific offers MUCH MUCH BETTER services.
~!@#$%&*

Edit: I’m going to fly home tomorrow at 9:15. No more transit in Singapore, but in Guang Zhou. Will reach Jakarta around 19:35

And for the BJ-GZ flight, I’ll be using either China Southern/Air China/…,whereas from GZ-JKT I’ll be using Garuda.

Bye-bye plastic bags

Starting from June 1st 2008, the China’s government has banned plastic bags in China, and prohibit the usage of thin plastic bags (forgotten how thick is the measurement), so we need to pay if we want to get plastic bags from the supermarkets, usually it range from RMB0.2-RMB0.4 (as far as I know), and the plastic bags are those recyclable ones.

So when I went to Carrefour last week (it’s been ages since the last time I shopped there), I brought my own tote to reduce the usage of plastic bags. Such a good girl, am I? Lol :p

But some places still use plastic bags, tho. Like in those bargain markets, for instance.
And the plastic bags they are using are those thin thin ones that has been banned, supposedly. Hahahaha…

And today, I went to the book store near my place and get myself two books πŸ™‚


No plastic bags. Instead, they wrapped them with a small paper and tied them with plastic rope. Talk about going back to the past πŸ˜‰

A belated wish


I know I’m so late for this, but…

“HAPPY DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL”

or as how I usually say it “Peh Cun” (Hokkien)

or “Duan Wu Jie (η«―εˆθŠ‚)”

We’re supposed to eat Bakcang on that day, BUT sooo sadly, I couldn’t get to eat Indonesian bakcang T_____________T

So I had to be satisfied with China’s bakcang, which is not nice =(

Well, maybe those I’ve tried are the not really nice ones, so yea…

I’ve tried 2 types, the sweet and savory ones. And the bakcang here is smalllll…so small compare to Indo’s ones..

Ohhh how I missed the bakcang from Medan…with mushroom, mince pork, and egg yolk stuffed inside…

Someone please send those yummy yummy bakcangs to me here T_______________________T

From 5 year to annual?

People said that Jakarta is having an every-5-year-flood which means there will be a big flood happens every 5 year in Jakarta. So last year was the starter. 02-02-2007.

I assume the next big flood will happen on 02-02-2012.

But what has happened??

Friday, February 1st 2008…

Yea, Jakarta was given another shot of “milk chocolate” -_-


See the overloaded “river” *pointing upward* (River? hmm..I don’t think that’s the proper word for it. Lol. I guess I’d just stick to “kali”- indonesian term for a small “river”)





Luckily my housing area didn’t kena. Just a small area at the front entrance kena a bit.

Anyway, this year’s flood was worst as well! The airport highway had to be closed down due to the high-level of water there. It was around 1-1.5 m!! I watched on TV news that a lot of people need to get off from their cars and walk across the chocolate sea water to reach the airport…

*and they call it an International Airport…*

Speaking of flood, a few months back (last year), there was a big flood in Solo as well. One of my cousin brother’s house was attacked by the “choco milk” and it reached 2-2.5 m in height!!! Too bad I forgotten to take pictures of the water mark when I went there last week so I can show you guys. It was really high. Luckily his house was quite high, and it’s a 2-storey house, so they could stay at the 2nd floor while the flood was still there. But, there are some houses around them which aren’t as high as his, so yea, they were drowned inside the water. So kesian lar…

Hmm..when will the government take action for this? This every-5-year-flood is now becoming an annual event…

Oh my country…
