JAKARTA PHOTODIARY

I had a really nice week-long Ramadhan break last week. I didn't go on a vacation but I did enjoy every inch of Jakarta's empty roads I drove through. For non-Jakartans out there, the traffic here is REALLY bad. How bad if you ask me, well if can take up to 3 hours to cover a 25km track. If anyone in a different city can top that of, I would love to know! With this city being peaceful, I couldn't help but go on random culinary trips all over Jakarta (which resulted unnecessary fatty acids to grow). Here's a little bit of recap of my holiday-in-town..

peter pan separate collar from Fevelle .. not only is the collar adorable, but the ribbon that came with it was sweeettttttttt !

I love pasta. All sorts of noodles to be exact. Many Indonesians can't live without rice but for me, I can't resist a good plate of long stringy carbs. Spaghetti, lo mie, indomie, vercimillies, fettucini, ramen, Pho noodles, etcetera.

im addicted to Chatime's bubble teas.. my favorite? the black tea latte with grass jelly and pearls with less ice and normal sugar. this explains my weightgain over the holidays

picked up a Canon S95 ! I've only used this for a couple days yet I'm already in love. now I have one camera I can take everywhere I go. some of the pictures in this post were actually shot using the S95 too..

I've always wanted an SLR but sometimes you definitely need a small, compact camera to take everywhere with you- your new one is lovely!

Looks like you had a great holiday!

I need about 30 min for a 25km track. I can hardly imaginee how bad the traffic must be.

You look very beautiful on the first picture! Do you take the photos on your own? They all look so professional.

Noodles? You bet! Even in the US, Indonesian students were still looking for Indomie! And friends in London and Toronto mentioned the same. *giggle*
Seems like you had a blast during the quiet week. It's the only time of the year when driving in Jakarta becomes "manusiawi", isn't it.

I like pasta too. I don't like eating rice, but I can't resist pasta. I actually just ate spaghetti for dinner lol.
