DIGI's does not support SMS roaming

Here's my experience using DIGI's mobile phone roaming service in Indonesia.
Get this. DIGI prepaid does not support SMS roaming!!
I felt isolated as I can't even message my loved ones in Malaysia while
my friends using 012 in Indonesia enjoyed the facility to SMS back to Malaysia.

I've been happy with DIGI so far as I have used it's GPRS services to
blog from my mobile phone as well as post pictures direct to my blog (from phone too!).

Anyway, lesson learnt. Next time I'll get a 012 prepaid (temporary) when I go over again.

Oh should add that I can receive SMS in Jakarta from Malaysia but I cannot send any SMS from Jakarta.

Best Steak in Indonesia

Originally uploaded by andrewooi.

Went to this place called Grandy where they served the best steak (according to Indonesian locas) in Indonesia.

They even had a musical troupe to entertain patrons on Saturday.

How does it taste? Well, mine was a little too well done but then again I didn't specify what I wanted. Served on a hot plate - I'd rate it 8 out of 10.

The whole meal was about Rupiah 70,000.
(around RM 28).

Well now I can tell people I've tasted the best steak in Indonesia.

Nasi Padang

Another Indonesian dish.

Dish name: Nasi Padang
Price : 9,000 Rupiah (RM 3.90)
Taste : Deeeelicious.

Remark :
Doesn't look as good as it tastes. Sorry because I'm using a camera phone.

As with all Indonesian dishes the curry beef rendang was extra spicy. (just the way I like it)

I'm still in Indonesia for a couple more days so will get some chances

Chess in Indonesia

Chess is so popular in Indonesia, I saw a group of people playing chess at a small booth in a car park.
