United States has its Big Apple.

Indonesia has its Big Durian.

Since I can’t afford New York, I can only make do with Jakarta.

Despite Lion Air’s less than stellar safety record, the price of 107 SGD for the return air tickets was attractive enough to entice me (and four other brave/ignorant souls) to give it a chance.

While Barack Obama took almost four decades to return, only 15 years have elapsed since my last visit.

No high expectation at all except for JW Marriott’s buffet.

And hopefully the terrorists won’t be visiting it at the same time as me.
