Another month, another destination! This time I took a trip to Jakarta, Indonesia for the installment of the Penang Trishaw Entourage
We paid about RM400 per pax, and it comes with a welcome drink, a meal and in flight entertainment! And funnier still? some budget airlines were even more expensive than Garuda Airlines
*I feel blessed*
Yinn and I
Our 3 hour flight arrived at Jakarta, and we too a cab straight to our hotel, Hotel Neo Melawai. Traffic is so bad hat it took us an hour plus just to reach the hotel
The crazy Traffic
So that building is to Untar...So where are we Tar-ing? LOL (Ok I know I'm that lame)
*It is actually a university
The hotel is pretty decent, rooms were clean and the hotel cafe/bar has a nice concept. It is near the B2 Shopping mall but the only part that I didn't like is that there were quite a lot of Japanese Bars/Karaokes nearby (sleazy joints)
The hotel cafe:
So what did I like about Jakarta? Definitely the food even though I got major food poisoning after that LOL. The food poisoning was pretty bad as i had fever, diarrhea and constant vomiting for the next 2 days wtf
Question of the day: Guess which food I ate which made me die over there
*sorry no prizes* or I can give you 100 rupiah? LOL
Bebek Goreng (Fried Duck) which was pretty weird as they didn't clean the duck properly and hair was still sticking out of it
Baso Malang, The name Malang (bad luck) already says everything
Beef Satay Rice Set
Coconut Oreos! Something hard to find in Malaysia
*The Answer will be at the end of the post*
The event was held at Gandaria City Mall, which is a pretty big mall at Jakarta. The setup and event went pretty well, and definitely the one thing that is most memorable is the Jakarta Crew
They're super friendly and professional which made working with them really pleasant!

Another surprise we had at Jakarta was the visit of our Ex Intern, Sherley. We managed to grab some awesome cotton candy ice cream desserts! check em out:

As the event came to an end, it definitely is time to party! Freddy brought us out on a clubbing experience at one of the local clubs. We got VIP treatment and evacuated a booth near the DJ console!
Drinks all night means we got pretty smashed up

So anyway, what is the answer for my crazy food poisoning in Jakarta?
JENG JENG JENG
ITS THE BEEF SATAYYYYYY
That is the only different food i had compared to the rest throughout the stay. so that's definitely the cause of it. Now who wants to claim their 100 rupiah? LOL
will definitely be coming back in December for Djakarta Warehouse Project!
