we arrived at soekarno-hatta international airport around midnight and immediately hailed a bluebird cab (97,000 rupiah) to ibis mangga dua hotel (400,000 rupiah per night). after checking in, we had supper and then went off to bed.

 

24 may 2009 – the next day, we walked over to pasar pagi behind our hotel to grab breakfast.

then, we took an angkut (similar version of our bas mini, 2,500 rupiah) to our next destination. while waiting for the angkut, i took a picture of a nicely decorated bajaj (auto rickshaw).

lim dared me to take the roller coaster ride with her, complete with a 360-degree turn and corkscrew. i did it… with my eyes shut. don’t judge me! other rides which we did were the pirate boat swing, bumper cars, puppet castle, including queueing up around 1-hour for the simulator theatre.
