Ten hours later (!!) my Sunday started. Decided to splurge on the breakfast buffet and treat it as my "Sunday brunch". Once again, the food was nothing to write home about but...there were people! The hotel wasn't deserted after all.

During the drive I witnessed a few of what I call classic Jakarta moments for example driving past a ...
