"Don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out alive"
 

Jakarta's abuzzing.

So the Java Jazz Festival has come and gone. It was crazy! Just the amount of people there is enough to make you go nuts! At certain times, I had to just step out of the convention centre cause of all the people that were trying to move from one hall to the other to catch the next act.

One other thing that bugged me was they would smoke right in the hall itself. Well, they smoked everywhere and I mean EVERYWHERE.

Nuts, I tell you! But all in all a good trip I guess. Saw Marcus Miller, Richard Bona, Joshua Redman, Sadao Watanabe, Jeff Lorber, Dave Weckl, Ron Carter, David Benoit, Jamie Cullum, John Scofield, Airto Moreira, Larry Franco, Bubi Chen, and many others. Never in my life has my two feet hurt so much. All the walking, standing, and missing meals because of all the good music that was placed in front of me.

I think I might have just O.D.ed on jazz music. But guess what, I'm going down to Singapore this Saturday to catch Tower of Power at the Mosaic Music Festival. Maybe just one more before I do O.D. on jazz. ;)

As I was saying that I forgot about food, I didn't really take a lot of photos of food while I was in Jakarta as the only food I saw was in the hotel during breakfast and at the convention centre, which in that point I was too tired to take any photos. But on Monday while waiting for my flight in the evening... Julian and I went to a nearby shopping mall to do some last minute shopping.

Found this interesting little cafe with really funny menus and stuffs. This guy really loves his music! :D

Maybe it's getting a little bit too lame but it's funny, don't you think? :)

Baked sweet potatoes with mayonnaise. Interesting combo.

A standard, no-fancy-smancy fried rice with egg.

My one and only celebrity shot throughout the festival... the great Sadao Watanabe. He was just so nice and none of that air that most of the other musicians had.

Also, I met a young man that's running a jazz website in Jakarta with his own funding as well... just like alldatJazz.com called Horizon-Line.
