In The Meantime, Let’s Honk To The Beat

So Jakarta aspires to become an international music city. It makes sense, given the amount of large-scale music events and festivals recently held in Jakarta. One thing: if Jakarta can manage to convert the howling din of daily honking from cars, buses, motorcycles and sate sellers into music, it certainly would earn that title.Maybe Plis Deh Jakarta can start a side business selling musical car horns?

The Eventful, Albeit Absurd, City

Jakarta is host to a multitude events all year round, but these events caught our attention:Air Condtioning Technology exhibition, Nov 19-21, 2009, at Jakarta International Trade Expo, Kemayoran. As if Jakartans ever needed convincing to buy aircons.World Town Planning Day, 8 Nov 2009. Really? In Jakarta? Maybe it’s supposed to show what not to do for town planning.
