~ traffic jam ~

16 September 2003

maybe it’s just my imagination, but jakarta seems to be more crowded compare to the last time i was here. there are more cars on the road. the line of cars seems to be longer. the rush hour traffic seems to start earlier. waaaay earlier, like at 3PM.

it took me 1 1/2 hours to get home from work. that trip usually only takes me half an hour. gah.

aooohh.. traffic in jakarta!! i had such a bad experience the last time i went home.. it took me 3 hours to go back home to ciputat from kemang from the usual half an hour.. and it wasn’t even rush hour.. saking keselnya gue di mobil tereak▓ sendiri kayak orang gila..

the stress isn’t at work.. it’s on the way to and from work.. don’t u think? it’s even worst if ur the one who’s driving..

yeah, it’s definitely gone mad. trick pegi jam2 tertentu udah ngga jalan lagi. mana ngga ada supir lagi. kalo ada temen di mobil sih mungkin agak mendingan. ini, udah bosen, suntuk, yang ada gue marah-marah ama radio.

bener2 tua dijalan nih :(

Mi nombre es gloria soy colombiana, de Medellin, curso primer semestre de administraci˛n de negocios; admiro inmensamente a thalia, siempre me ha impactado por su talento y su personalidad en el mundo artistico, tambien porque los mexicanos me llaman mucho la atenci˛n, puedo decir que thalýa es esa hidola mexicana. Toco piano y canto m¨sica pop y baladas. Me gusta escribir y cuando estoy triste, muchas veces invento las canciones. Thalia, aparte de la carrera artýstica, me gustaria saber por que otro campo te inclinarýas. Me despido con un fuerte abrazo.

hmmm… :(
this is one of the main reasons why i’m so hesitant to go home for good… gue gak bisa ngebayangin stuck di mobil sendirian for hours in traffic… i think i’ll go crazy.

des.. kamu kan di serpong juga.. ntar aku supirin, jadi kamu nggak capek :)

scogin — i get car sick less lately. maybe because i’m mostly the driver. and i don’t take cabs that often anyway.
