As I move to Jakarta a few years back, I started to stroll around to the nearest place I can find. It’s easy, it’s malls. For me, it’s such an efficient place to get myself to start to understand this city. Lots of options to stop by, like restaurants to taste food in the city, as well as looking at some good clothes or just groceries shopping. And I still haven’t changed, I looked for a bookstore with an expectation that I can find something to help me killing time.
I can’t really remember how, but since I live in Kemang when I move to Jakarta, I just walking around Kemang Raya and Bangka X. There are lots of cafes, obviously. But since it’s just a walking distance, I can really take a look at places. And that’s when I stopped by Aksara in Kemang.
