“We want you to enjoy the best of Jakarta!”

there is no “Thank you” in Sumbanese! And Nelden, the Sumbanese princess, adds that neither is there an expression of “Sorry”!


The Korean restaurant, fantastic, probably the best I’ve ever had. 3 people end up with 300 thousand rupiah something.
Grand indonesia, the cinema is pretty fancy.
German restaurant, lots of bule (foreigners, especially “White”).
Effeks, with the longest dry slide in the world installed right in the middle of the mall. it looks pretty scary, starting from the 6th floor all the way down to the ground floor. The name: AtMostFear.
Metro + Sogo, meeting with the famous filmmaker Mas Garin. They say I already “buddies buddies” with him so quickly. Mas Garin keeps saying that I am lucu (funny), and asks me why not doing fieldwork in Sumba while he makes another film about Sumba there. But he also says that there is no “Thank you” in Sumbanese! And Nelden, the Sumbanese princess, adds that neither is there an expression of “Sorry”!
Tomorrow, Pacific Place.
