    Siapa Mau Ke PRJ? Jakarta Fair 2016… 

    Big day here, in that my tukang gado2 has returned from his long Ramadhan break, so I can easily obtain my fave spicy salad again.

    Big decision time, too, whether to go all the way up to Kemayoran in North Jakarta, at least a two hour journey, even in this quiet week when many if not most citizens have left town for the Idul Fitri holidays…




    …or not.

    I have faithfully made my way up there for the last sixteen years, but it has got progressively less alluring, with most of the music I like best, i.e dangdut…




    …diminished in number or relegated to the small Gambir stage with the main ‘name’ bands – generally pop/teen – hogging the larger entertainment area.

    I don’t know…

    • All those pretty SPGs are nice to look at, but heck, there are plenty of gorgeous gals everywhere in Jakarta – there’s a new one just started work in my local mini-mart – just as attractive as the PRJ’s sales promotion girls.

    Serious thought required…

    But to help you think for yourselves, I append the schedule of events below…

    On careful inspection, the only dangdut concert I can discern falls on 14th July, with the lovely Fitri Karlina…

    …though I see there’s an extra treat in store for those who attend that evening, little cute Lesti…



    …whom I praised – and voted for –

    Ayo, Lesti! Maksud Hatiku, Kamu Harus Menang! 

     – when she was triumphing on tv’s Dangdut D’Academy.  

    And I see next Thursday I should be free to go walkabout.

    So let me contemplate that interesting prospect.

    Reggae, PRJ, Sunday, 5th July! 

    It may be the Fourth of July, but since Obama’s Ambassador here isn’t celebrating  After Obama’s 4th July Kow-Tow, Now France Shifts Bastille Day! and I have no particular plans either, I’m just waiting for my welcome weekend visitor.

    But do you like reggae?

    If that’s your idea of fun, best to get over to the Jakarta Fair tomorrow. According to their calendar of events  http://www.jakartafair.co.id/2015/page/calendar … there’s a Reggae Day on the Gambir Stage – that’s the smaller one at the back of the exhibition complex.

    The fair opens earlier on weekends, so maybe it will start at noon, but you need to ring up and make sure!

    PRJ, SPG, Plus Indiana Whiskey – Jakarta ‘Stoner’ Gems! 



    I’ve liked the Stones for years and years, took my offspring to see them in London about a quarter of a century ago, so would be truly happy if they included Indonesia in their next World Tour.

    However, that is a possible event, not at all guaranteed.




    So yesterday, as always, every year, I undertook the long trek to the Jakarta Fair – to see the ‘Tribut Rolling Stones!’ 

    As it says in the Good Book, ‘blessed are they that expecteth nothing, for they shall not be disappointed.’

    Actually, it doesn’t say that, but there is more than a grain of truth there, especially in Jakarta!

    Not knowing how good or bad the tribute might be, I settled down at the Panggung Gambir, in the oldest part of the PRJ complex, and at 8pm the show began.  


    SAM_9135 SPGs!.


    I should mention I was footsore by that time, having wandered round and round, admiring the Sales Promotion Girls, of whom the above are splendid examples.

    But to the music.

    It wasn’t bad at all. And all the other fans in the audience agreed. Apparently there are many here who appreciate the Stones – these afficionados call themselves ‘Stoners.’ 

    There were four bands, of varying qualities, so I will only name the best.

    Indiana Whiskey, whose singer, pictured on-stage further up the page, has perfected his imitation of Sir Mick Jagger’s stance, gestures and gyrations.

    His colleagues complement his performance ably.

    And that band did more of my fave Stones’ hits than any of the others. ‘Brown Sugar,’ ‘Satisfaction…’



    ….and the song I love best, ‘Ruby Tuesday. ‘

    I doubt any of them read my writings, but I will make one modest suggestion for improvement. 

    Get the words right!

    Instead of finishing RT with its third verse, said singer simply repeated the second.

    But that’s okay.

    PRJ – Miss Jakarta Fair 2015 – Monday 15th June! 


    Just got back, having gone forth to help somebody out for ‘half an hour,’ so I was led to believe, but two hours later I was still helping!

    No worries, always better to be out and about than in and lassitudinous.

    I was just going to post on the above, the hours during which you can enjoy the Jakarta Fair – and the price of tickets.

    Monday is the cheapest day!

    Then I noticed that on Monday, 15th June, the grand final of the Miss Jakarta Fair contest is due to be held. 



    And here they are!

    Alas, I can’t be there.

    Give the gals my best wishes if you can!

    Here’s the link to the events calendar again, if you need it.  http://www.jakartafair.co.id/2015/page/calendar

    PRJ OK – Rolling Stones, Country Music, JKT48, Dangdut! 

    Well, hurray! A sunny day!


    The Jakarta Fair musical line-up has at last been announced –  and some of it is not bad at all!


    rolling-stones-10 The Rolling Stones


    The real Stones won’t be there, but there’s a Stones Tribute, and some of the bands in Jakarta who do those grand old numbers are pretty impressive. So that’s one possible date for my diary.

    Then there’s JKT48, a bunch of wee beauties whom everybody likes.





    Nor should we ignore the temptations of a big dangdut night, with gorgeous chanteuses galore!






    I haven’t researched all the stars scheduled to perform, but there are stunners like Fitri Carlina, Cita Citata and Silvia Ardila!

    And I see there’s also a Country Music show!

    You can check out the entire calendar here –  http://www.jakartafair.co.id/2015/page/calendar– although I recommend you re-check nearer whenever you plan to go, because of course agendas can change, for all kinds of reasons.

    PRJ – Jakarta Fair, 29th May-5th July, 2015 

    Well, it’s that time of year again, but when you try to use the http://www.jakartafair.co.id link to see who’s singing and when, all I got is ‘coming soon.’

    Maybe you’ll have better luck!

    But there’s only a few more days!

    It would be nice to have access to a schedule of musical events.
