WHAT YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT JAKARTA

JJK e-magazine - - COVER STORY -

I GREW UP IN SMALL TOWN, SO WHEN I MOVED TO JAKARTA 10 YEARS AGO, EV­ERY­THING IN THE CITY FAS­CI­NATED ME. THE BUILD­INGS, THE PEO­PLE. BUT THE THING I LOVE VERY MUCH ABOUT JAKARTA IS THAT YOU NEVER FEEL ALONE IN THIS CITY. IT'S OKAY TO EAT BY YOUR­SELF, TO DRINK ON YOUR OWN. EV­ERY­ONE SEEMS SO BUSY WITH WHAT THEY’RE DO­ING, BUT AT THE SAME TIME THEY'RE WITH YOU, FIGURATIVELY. JAKARTA WITH ALL ITS CHAOTIC PROB­LEMS TAUGHT ME TO BE TOUGH.
