Am in Jakarta now and my Internet access will be limited as the hotels here don’t have broadband in the rooms..
I arrived last night to a typically disorderly immigration check-in, they have imposed a new regulation where you need to purchase a visa on arrival for 25USD.
Also Asia Air only allows 15kg check-in luggage, so I had to pay for 11KG excess, wasn’t too expensive though, only 12RM per kilo.
The flight was delayed slightly (normal for Air Asia), but not too bad.
At least the pilot managed to land correctly this time (I’ve been on Air Asia a couple of times where they have missed the runway and had to go around again).
The currency here is pretty confusing…I changed RM300 and ended up with 650,000 rupiah..for 400+ bucks you can be a millionaire.
I got mischarged in the airport when I had just arrived as I was sleepy and didn’t think to calculate the price, they charged me double I think…
Was pretty tired last night so just chilled in the hotel, I have to say the TV here is much, much better than Malaysia..
Woke up this morning way too early (miscalculated the time), I called my colleague at 9am (so I thought) to ask where he was, he duly informed me it was only 7am…I had been sitting in the foyer since 6am (which I thought was 8am..)
So I went and had some breakfast….lovely Chicken Noodles, haven’t had anything like that in Malaysia before.
Anyway have to start class now, will post pictures when I get back probably..
Enjoy your monday COS I BEEN AWAKE SINCE 5-FUCKING-AM!
