Just share my experience today, I took GOJEK to office due to flat tyres. It was my first time, I was about taking a cab, I couldn't even reach the operator, I thought because it was in business hours so the line was busy. Then my driver came up with idea of GOJEK. I was like what the heck it is???? He called up and the GOJEK arrived in 15 minutes, I was totally stunned. For you who don't know what GOJEK is, it's a professional Ojek (motorcycle taxi) booking service, which is recommended for Jakarta traffic condition. It took less than 30 minutes from Kemang to Sudirman. The driver was so nice, he could speak english a bit and comprehend what I said. Unfortunately I forgot to ask his name. It's so professional, the meter is based on distance from google map system, fair enough right?? This is a new alternative for us in facing Jakarta traffic I assume. Cheap, easy and speedy. I'm thinking to be a member of GOJEK. We'll see.. Good job GOJEK!!

Dear all, As you may know, on Monday 20 October, the governor of Jakarta, Mr. Joko Widodo, or Jokowi as he is more affectionately known as by the public will be sworn in as Indonesia's 7th President. One of the leading news magazines has featured him on their cover, with the headline "A New Hope" A simple and action-oriented person, he certainly brings about a lot of optimism in this country. We're posting this thread, and keeping it open, so that anybody who feels like it, can post their personal message and wishes to his new Administration. Whether you are an expatriate or an Indonesian, this is a good momentum to share your thoughts. What do you hope for? What do you want to see change? Can you give some inputs for his Administration? (he's known to be very transparent and make use of technology such as the internet to leverage on the advantages of real-time and direct methods of communicating like this).

Dear friends, We're proud to announce the latest, innovative section on our website: AngloINFO Property. Allow me to explain a little about it below: What is AngloINFO Property and why should I be excited about it? AngloINFO Property is the name of the new property section on AngloINFO. Here, you can search through hundreds of thousands of properties to buy and sell, to find the one that’s perfect for you. You can access the new AngloINFO Property section from anywhere on AngloINFO by clicking on “Property” in the top navigation bar. http://property.angloinfo.com/jakarta In the new section, we’ve been able to introduce some great new features like Google Street View, Google Maps showing local amenities and email alerts for properties matching your search criteria. We’ve also improved the overall experience with more (and bigger) images and the option for related documents (such as floorplans) to be uploaded to the property listing. In addition, we have lots of Information Pages about buying and renting property to help you base your decisions on reliable facts. We’re pretty excited about all of this – and we hope you are too! Does this apply to Holiday Property as well as Residential Property? Yes! In AngloINFO Property you can search for (and advertise) holiday rentals as well as properties for sale and rent. http://property.angloinfo.com/jakarta/account/properties What will happen to property ads in the Classifieds? They remain unchanged for now but over the next few weeks they will be phased out as the functionality of the new AngloINFO Property section allows you to do so much more. What’s the best way for me to find a property to buy or rent, or a holiday property to rent, on AngloINFO? The new AngloINFO Property section has hundreds of thousands of properties all over the world for you to choose from, so we’d recommend you start your search there. Until we move all of our existing property classifieds over, you’ll still find some great properties in our Classifieds section too, so be sure to look there as well so you don’t miss anything. http://property.angloinfo.com/jakarta http://jakarta.angloinfo.com/classifieds Why can’t I add a new Classified to the Residential Property or Holiday Property categories? The new AngloINFO Property section offers many more features to help market your property effectively. Over the next few weeks we’ll phase out properties from the Classifieds altogether, so we’ve switched off the option to add new ones. We hope that you’ll advertise your property via AngloINFO Property and see the benefits for yourself. http://property.angloinfo.com/jakarta/account/products I have a live Featured Classified on AngloINFO - what will happen to it? If you have a live Featured Classified, it will still show in whichever Classified category you paid for it to appear in. If your ad is still live when we switch off the property classifieds, we’ll migrate you over to the new AngloINFO Property section – but don’t worry, we’ll email you in advance to let you know what will happen. If you’d rather move your property ad to the new AngloINFO Property section now, just contact us and we’ll be happy to help. mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org What will happen to existing basic Classifieds? We hope that people with basic Classifieds will decide to advertise their properties in the new AngloINFO Property section! Eventually, existing basic ads will disappear when we switch off the property sections of the Classifieds but we’ll email everyone in advance so that they know what to expect. Please have a look!
