To Jakarta

indonesia, 63 tahun, merdeka

Come Aug 17, Indonesia celebrates its independence day! And guess what, I'm right here in the country with many islands.

After 16 years, I'm visiting Jakarta again - the last when they had their Visit Indonesia Year.

The red-white (merah putih) can be seen in parts of the city. And I've also seen words Dirgahayu - my first time hearing these words.

This is my first time being in a nation when it celebrates its birthday and it does feel good. At least to soak in the atmosphere, though I'm actually here for a friend's wedding.

And talking about Indonesia, I managed to watch the superb performance in the Olympics semi finals for the men's doubles - Indonesia's Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan. I guess the mood is high now that they are in the finals... imagine what a 'gift' to the nation it will be if they strike gold!

More on Indonesia to come :)
