Expat in Jakarta


I’ve just realized, I’m officially an expatriate! Wow. Two days in, I’ve only managed to explore the city for around two hours.

Nightlife is apparently a big thing here. So expect numerous people coming out at night. Malls go all out in terms of design and I understand the urge to keep on shopping. I was told that big sales happen on Mondays, so bring your credit cards. However, general feedback from other Filipinos is that shopping is cheaper in Manila so no shopping for me.


Offices are also quite luxurious!
First mall! You can see a bit the difference in “theme” of the upper floors.

View at Skye bar. It’s post bar at the highest building.
One of the rather famous monuments – or so my friend says.

View at the hotel. Hello city lights!
