friday five places

it's kinda late, but oh well, here it is anyway...

1. Where were you born? Jakarta, Indonesia

2. If you still live there, where would you rather move to? If you don't live there, do you want to move back? Why or why not?
I left Jakarta about 8 years ago. Now I'm in Boston, Massachussetts. I miss Indonesia, and I'd like to move back there in a few years, but not to Jakarta, if I can help it (even though most likely I'll end up there, anyway). Jakarta's becoming too congested even for me and I absolutely can't stand the traffic!!! I'll go insane if I have to be stuck in traffic 4 hours a day everyday (which is what will happen if live there)... I'd give anything to move to Bali, though...

3. Where in the world do you feel the safest?
This is gonna sound really lame, but I feel safest with my mom.

4. Do you feel you are well-traveled?
I guess so. I've been to several major cities in Southeast Asia and to most states in the US. I want to go to Tokyo again, cuz when I went there I was only 12 years old, and my only memory of it was about Disneyland. But I've never been to Europe... sniff... sniff... It'll be my goal for next year...

5. Where is the most interesting place you've been?
I would say Bali is the most interesting, cuz there are just so many different things you could see and experience... I went there last year, and I just loved talking to the people... it amazed me how open and honest they were in telling a complete stranger like me their life stories!
