In The Midst of H5N1 & Terror Attacks
In the midst of it all, I did something. I visited the city of Jarkata. Despite US Alerts that the terror would strike after Hari Raya, specifically the Chinese. Despite the fact that the fact that the cases of bird flu seems not to be getting better. Before going, I recall watching the news about how badly hit the city has been. It was not positive and I had to say, demoralising, knowing that I was going to visit a place like that. I can't say which was worst. Was it better to be bombed to death? Or to die of bird flu?
So I went and returned. The news seems to show us the worst side of it. JKT seems pretty peaceful afterall. It doesn't show signs of being under terror or in the midst of an epidermic. I ate and ate for the 2 - 3 days I was there, fried chicken and pigeon soup in bamboo tubes inclusive. So indulgent was the eating that I felt I have sinned and in the process, put on 5 kg.
Oh, the trip? Check it out here
