    I'd go nuts for the saucisson whereas my wife would go nuts over foie gras.

      Hahaha... Don't worry, I always have a couple of saucisson & foie gras up front in my réserve if you pass by Manado. One has to be unlucky to show up at a time where I am low on stock concerning french food and beverages. To be even more tempting, I carry a bottle of La Grande Dame from Veuve Clicquot in one of my luggage. I've kept this one locked since it's pretty tempting to open it on the spot.
      On top of that I should be in and out of Indonesia quite often in 2013. This is not this year that I'll be missing french delicacies.

      OK. Thanks for the tip about how foolish my idea to go to PIM is. Any update about the situation, if it changes, would be appreciated.

        You should leave SCTV on in the background in your hotel room since you speak Indonesian fluently

                      Ok this is bad. Taken from The Jakarta Globe:

                      [COLOR=#000000]Central Jakarta’s business district flooded with water on Thursday after a 30-meter-long section of the West Flood Canal dike collapsed, the Jakarta Public Works Agency said.[/COLOR][COLOR=#000000]
                      Jakarta officials suspect the collapse was caused by surge of water sent into the canal after the Manggarai floodgate was opened hours earlier. The dike could not withstand the force of water, which flowed into the canal at 500 cubic meters per second, Jakarta Public Works Agency head Hendri said.

                      Homes and roads in the Menteng area were inundated with 1.5 meters of water late Thursday morning as floodwaters covered portions of Jalan Teluk Betung and Tosari. Jalan MH Thamrin and Jalan Sudirman were also underwater by Thursday afternoon.

                      Train service was cancelled in the greater Jakarta area after floods destroyed 40 meters of tracks near the Tanah Abang station, KAI spokesman Mateta Rizalulhaq said.

                      The train company is unable to fix the damaged tracks until the dike is repaired.

                      “We cannot fix the railway as long as the water is still there,” Mateta said. “It can only be done after it is dry.”

                      Jakarta Governor Joko Widodo visited the site at Thursday afternoon and urged the Ministry of Public Works to fix the dike while emergency funding is available.

                      “I will call on the Ministry of Public Works to fix this,” Joko said.

                      As long as the dike remains damaged, the flooding will continue along Jalan Thamrin and Jalan Sudirman, Hendri said.

                      “If it is not fixed, the floods… will keep on getting higher,” he said.

                      The agency plans to construct a temporary stone wall to try to stop some of the rushing water before crews begin making permanent repairs.

                      Jakarta will remain under emergency status until January 27.

                        Uh oh. Could it be that they realize that they need the money and are keeping the emergency status for ten days to get national funding for the repairs... or are we truly, deeply, f/<¥ed?

                              Flooding of Jakarta has been happening, like clockwork, every year for the last two decades, and yet nothing has been done, including during the long tenure of the so-called Father of Development. Now imagine what the most far-flung and peripheral parts of the country can expect in terms of government attention to identified problems.

                                here's a website with flood info - http://cybermap.cbn.net.id/index.php?map=jkt.
                                Click on banjir on the bottom of the right side and a small map comes up. A great deal of jakarta seems to be marked blue. I don't suppose it will change for a few days - where would the water go? It's been waist-high deep in floodwater in Pulo Mas since around lunch time and hasn't receded at all. At least it hasn't risen further ... yet
