Woo hoo, we are pretty excited right now because we gonna have 3 weeks holiday on this month. We will be going back to Indonesia, mainly Jakarta (our beloved hometown) because we really missed it and want to catch up with some friends and family especially Diana since this is her first time going back home after almost 1 year living abroad in OZ. I know 3 weeks is pretty short to spend at Indo but you know, annual leave quota does not let me stay longer ­čśŽ What more, it really is not the best time to go for holiday since Aus Dollar is pretty low and this means more money to buy foreign currency.


Jakarta – here we come.

Anyway, we will leave Sydney on 6 Nov by Singapore Airlines, taking their last flight (they fly 4x a day Syd-Sin), so will arrive at Singapore around 12AM. Decided to spend the night at the Airport Hotel so we can spend the next day (7 Nov) sightseeing (probably bit of shopping) around Singapore. Then we gonna take last flight to Jakarta at 9.20PM using SQ as well so arrive at Jakarta at 10PM local time.

We will also going to Bali for 4 days 3 months since we can’t get enough of Bali during our honeymoon last year hehehe. Everything is taken care of, from the flights, hotel, transport even itinerary is scheduled so we can only hope everything will be work in place and no delays whatsoever. The only thing we worried is Air Asia (for flight to Bali), they are quite infamous with flight delays but when you travelling cheap, can’t really do anything more other than wait ­čÖé

We at Bali last December.

Of course, one of “must do” thing in Indo is to try local foods (let’s hope our tummy can stand the foods) so expect many many entries about this. We have listed which restaurants & places I should go at Jakarta, Bandung and Bali hahaha. We mainly want to eat Indo foods because we missed these the most, the reason is although there are some Indo restaurants in Sydney (mainly on Anzac Pde – Kensignton & Kingsford), the taste is not that original. In Jakarta, there are a lot of good foods you can get from hawker and small restaurants ­čśÇ
