I am in sort of organising my year calander for 2007.
I was in Jakarta Bus Metro from Kedoya to Tanah Abang.I enjoy the bus ride in Jakarta.
Yes Tanah Abang has change tremendously,its the centre of the textiles industry.
You could find reasonable cheap and quality Batik here.
Tanah Abang is the centre of the Minang bisness net working.You find ample garment what ever you need here.Before Tanah Abang was a tough area only cowboys is brave enough to venture in that area after 4pm.
Me ever since my student days I love having a stroll and have a deep thought of what Indonesia is from Tanah Abang prespective.It give me the insight reality of life to fellow Indonesia.
The man on the street version.I was able to dwell well in Tanah Abang because chieflyly I do not pretend to be a tourist either do I shops in 'Kodi's' at Tanah Abang.
Its a place where I lingger and observe the very fabric of the society.I do it still up till today.Having my Ais Teler of MengoKopi di warong Si Anu sambil 'mingrong' my Sempurna Mild Hijo.
The reasons for my entry was question pose by someone I met during the bus ride to Tanah Abang.

Me: Ya Om.
Om : Kapan tamat nya persidangan itu?
(Obviously he is a guy whom do enjoy political conversation and well read)
Me: Ma'af Om saya enggak tahu kapan selesainya.(He continues asking me)
Om: Apa benar Bapak Menteri Abdullah TERTIDUR waktu berlangsungnya persidangan itu Pak?
Me : ???????@@@@@@+++++++$$$$$^^^^^^^(((((()))))))))
