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.

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.

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