Motorcycle Taxi Online

Hi semuanyaaa... sebelum saya mulai bercuap-cuap sudah ada yang mengikuti lomba review berhadiah pulsa? Lumayan loh hadiahnya bagi pemenang pertama adalah pulsa Rp. 100.000,- Batas terakhir adalah tanggal 24 Maret jadi jangan sampai lupa yah. 

Okay, now I'm going to make my personal review about motorcyle taxis in Jakarta. What? There is a motorcycle taxi here? Yeap... In here they called Ojeg or ojek... The same thing. Since most of the time, Jakarta hit with traffic jam these kind of taxis really help us a lot. Both we, passenger and driver know this kind of transportation is illegal, but we use it anyway. Usually we have to know about the route and more or less about the decent fee to be paid to the driver. It will help if you have Indonesian friend who will give you inside and tips and guidance about this matter. Otherwise, if you are not really a bargaining person then most of motorcycle taxi drivers will rob you blind.

Train Station Palmerah

This is another renovated train station in Palmerah; Jakarta. I just hope it will stay like this for good... No trash around especially if there are so many people on board...

There are few regulations to use train in Jakarta... But sometimes, passengers pretend not to know by eating on the train and drinking...

Here is the map of train stations

You may check the photos on my album here.

Merit Mangrove Forest

A few weeks ago, my friend and I visited Mangrove Forest located at Pantai Indah Kapuk - North Jakarta. There is no easy way to get there unless you take a cab. But if you decided to have an adventure then get ready...
First go to the train station or busway station located at old city of Jakarta : Stasiun Kota
If you have exited the station then go across the street to Museum of Bank Indonesia
Then choose public transportation : KOPAMI JAYA 02 (blue kopami) going to Muara Karang. Ask to be dropped off at Muara Karang's bridge (said in Indonesian: Jembatan Muara Karang)

Arrived already? Nooo... Please continue with red KWK B01 going to Muara Angke. But ask to be dropped off at the gate of Pantai Indah Kapuk (In Indonesian: gerbang Pantai Indah Kapuk).
And finally, continue with red KWK U11 and ask to be dropped off at Txu Chi's school. After that, just follow the sign to Mangrove Forest.

Confuse? Better ask your Indonesian friend to take you there...

Rush Hour

A few days ago I saw a bunch of tourists from Thailand at busway stop Central Harmoni. I couldn't help but wonder, why their tour guide is crazy enough to bring all of them during rush hour. Yes. It was around 4 PM where many people already finish their job and all rushing try to get home as soon as possible. Traffic jam will hit the street around 5 PM until around 8 PM. Which is why the goverment urge our people to use public transportation. Unfortunately, this is what you get by using public transportation. Long queuing and you have to bear many impolite people (me including...well, sometimes).

I think is great when you travel to another country and want to try the experience first hand on how was it if I use this public transportation? Will it be difficult? Is there something that I need to buy, like in this case e-ticket. And how much further you will want in that experience. Would you like to try how crazy people can be when all they can think of is home. As Soon As Possible. One minute this person can be nice to you, showing direction. But when the bus come he or she (usually is ...she).will brutally push you aside so you won't be in the way.
