Jalan Jaksa Festival to be held this weekend

JAKARTA (Antara): The annual “Jalan Jaksa Festival” is going to be held this weekend, with Governor Sutiyoso is scheduled to officially open the event on Saturday, official said.

The event actually starts Friday, but the Governor will officially open it on Saturday,” said Oyong Hana Abidin, spokesperson of the Central Jakarta administration on Thursday.

Oyong said that this year’s festival would be organized by the Kebon Sirih Karang Taruna youth organization..

As many as 80 stands will take part in the two-day event, offering various tourism products and services, Oyong said, adding that the event which is also held to commemorate the country’s Independence Day, was expected to attract some 500 visitors, including foreign tourists.

Jalan Jaksa in Central Jakarta is known as the city’s main tourist site, especially among back packers, as it offers affordable accommodation. (**)

indeed. and is jaksa really a "backpacker centre"? it may once have been, 10 years ago. it sure ain't now. JP journalists really need to get out once in a while and not just regurgitating tired old "facts" from the archives.

hard to know what it's about really, apart from giving a few of the local lads an income for a few months. it's a locals scene to some extent, though i'm sure some foreign tourists would find the music on offer interesting. there are also the usual "handcraft" stalls and clothing from china ... outside my office at night they show indonesian action movies on a big screen strung up over the street. seems very popular. and loud.

All I know is that I was at the "so called" Jaksa festival last night and saw a bule up on stage with Fuzzy Bozo (sic) and he was kinda funny, and did the bule name some good, for once.

I have most of his tv shows on DVD. Quite frankly he's about as funny as a truckload of dead rats in a tampon factory. However, he is very handsome and probably rather hirsute. And he was an amenable landlord during the dire straits when I delved into the squattocracy. Nothing quite like a lingering dip into the Dickensian dosshouse for orphaned shoe-shine boys.

There's a little green-eyed idol to south of Kathmandu, eh? Unless I'm wrong, and I am never wrong, young White-Hat the adonis made a fleeting cameo in one episode of Trans TV's Fenomena, completely upstaging a long boring interview with a more bilious Jaksa bule.

i've never actually seen the program actually, so i'll have to take your word for it. wink

it's apparently been repeated quite a number of times, but always way past my bed time.

That particular episode of Fenomena was a gleaming example of tawdry smut posing as current affairs. The best (and most cringe-worthy) part was an interview with a particularly tawdry PSK, who claimed her bule clients paid handsomely for her to take it up the gary glitter. I'd never seen her on Jaksa, so can only assume she was rounded up for the show and coached to spout such venomous slander. Either that or she hangs out in Memories when not in Tiga Kuda.

i still have the interviewer's name card. do you want to apply for job with them? you'd fit in really well.

I've often thought about working under Emma Waroka Hawkins. But unfortunately, Fenomena has been axed. Perhaps Dorce Show needs a sleepy halfwit co-host. Don't really fancy working under Dorce though.
