SNF: 081017 [2 of 3]

While we were about to leave Taman Mini Indonesia Indah (TMII), one of the winners spotted a Komodo Park signage... and though it wasn't in our itinerary, everyone didn't mind paying the additional Rp5,000 to see a real Komodo Dragon...

This was the entrance... which looked more like a Godzilla than a Komodo...

We were told that we could take photo with the Komodo Dragon for free... all we had to do was walk slowly towards it's back... But since it looked kinda fierce, I only took photo from the entrance of it's cage... (in case of emergency, can dash out ma)...

This Komodo Dragon is only fed once a week but it can eat 7 live chickens under a minute... ONE MINUTE wei!!!

There was only 1 Komodo Dragon in the entire park... which was kinda disappointing cos' I was expecting at least a dozen or more moving around... Nevertheless, there were other animals in the park... pythons... One of the winners; Mark was really daring. Not only was he the only one who posed with the Komodo Dragon, he also took on the largest python in the park.

This python is kinda strong, see how it kept turning it's head towards Mark? Freaky!

The caretaker of the park also thought us how to differentiate the gender of snakes in general:

Where he's pointing, there's actually a hole... there's 2 holes in total... that represents the snake's testicles

Then we walked past a glass cage with several iguanas...

Check out the iguana's toes... Am sure it'll taste better than chicken legs... cos longer and fatter... more to suck on... hahaha...

But guess what? Within the same compound, there was also a cute white rabbit at the corner. Everyone wondered if the rabbit was to be fed to the iguanas... but apparently not... they just co-exist harmoniously.

The guys found it so fascinating that they had to put it on record...

After that, we were taken to ITC Cempak Putih (ITC stands for International Trade Centre). They've got a few levels here and each level comprises of small stalls... selling apparels, accessories, phones, computers and generally anything and everything under the sun.

Everytime you walk past a stall, the staff will greet you by saying... "Boleh???", "Boleh berbelanja?". Now imagine hearing that every few seconds... after awhile, I just felt like running away cos their eyes were following me wherever I go...

But what was fascinating bout this place was Level 4... It was an entire floor that sells only phones and accessories as well as telco products...

There must have been like hundreds of these little stalls all cramped on the same floor.

Surprisingly though there were many many of these counters / stalls... there wasn't any take 1 leaflets on any of the counters...

Each and every one of the stalls / counters also have the plastic chairs neatly arranged...


See, there are even advertising messages at the back of the plastic chairs...

On our way back to the bus, we past by the motorcycles parking... if there are 70 million cars on the roads in Jakarta, there has got to be a lot MORE of these bikes around town:

I was standing in the middle... so imagine this on both sides... damn a lot of motorcycles... and this is only outside 1 mall...
