~ Driver’s License + seaport ~

23 January 2003

Chilli came over around 7:30 this morning. we both are going to get our photo taken and get our driver’s license. the city police headquarter (sorta like DMV in the States) were a bit far from my house, so we had to go early to avoid traffic. a guy from my dad’s office also came along. supposedly, he’ll take care of the process so that it goes smoother and quicker *wink wink*. i have no idea what he did, but we skipped all the lines, went straight to the photo room, signed and get our fingerprints taken, and received our lisence all within 10 minutes. no tests, no nothing. yay!

unlike my other IDs, my license picture looks decent too!

after that, Chilli and i kidnapped my dad from his office and went for lunch buffet at Park Lane, a new-ish hotel near the apartment. Chilli had this one-time voucher where we can get 50% discount. man, the food was awesome! i was all stuffed up once we’re done.

while we’re eating, i got a call from the Jakarta seaport. they said that they need to stamp my real passport in order to get my container out of the port. yikes! that’s like… far north! but then again, i’d love to get my stuff home as soon as possible. so, again, i now took my dad and Chilli to go all the way to the port.

ari had called me last night, that he would not want me to go to the port alone, since the port area is known to be dangerous. as we walked into the port office, Chilli noticed that among those 60-ish people in there trying to get their containers out of the port plus the workers there, we both are the only females in there… thank god my dad went along. if not, it would be quite an intimidating experience.

everything went smoothly. i’m hoping to get all my stuff back at home early next week.
