Advantages and Disadvantages Living in Jakarta
Generally, living in a big metropolis city is a dream for most of people around the world. Jakarta, as one of the cosmopolitan cities in the world, has many thing that can offer both of advantages and disadvantages.

In Jakarta, we can find more public facilities than a smaller cities in Indonesia. Education opportuniy and other kinds of specific course are easy to find in here, for example University of Indonesia, as one of biggest university in Indonesia, is located in Jakarta. Other course such as IALF is available for student who want to improve their capability in English. Also more factories and center offices that establish in Jakarta need a big workforce and become a chance for us.

Moreover, at the weekend, there are many choice to spend our time on entertainment. We can go to the movie in many places here, and go to the sport centers even in complete facilities like a gym and people who have shopping in hobby, they can visit some of big shopping malls such as Mall Ambassador, Mall Taman Anggrek and so on. Besides these, we can enjoy some musical concert in Taman Ismail Marzuki and visit exhibitions in Senayan occasionally.

However, a bad side living in Jakarta always make a city dwellers get in headache. Living cost in Jakarta are expensive, for instance; renting a house, food and transportation . Traffic jam is also happen in rush hour in the morning when a commuter enter and leave to the city. In addition, a large amount of vehicles produce a high air pollution from their combustion and make a hot atmosphere. Furthermore in rainy season, flooding in one of a big problem in Jakarta because of bad drainage in a canals.

In social aspect, individualistic and hedonist lifestyle are dominant. People always in a high suspicious when they are in the public area even so cruel and less attention to the other.
Indeed, based on my experiences, it is better not for living in Jakarta except if Jakarta wish has a more fresh air and become friendly someday.

Pembelajar sejati adalah pembelajar sepanjang kehidupan berdetak dalam ribuan warna musim dengan senyuman ingin tahu Ibrahim menanyakan siapa diri, menanyakan siapa Tuhannya . A lifelong learner is a learner for as long as his/her heartbeat still in a thousand of color of seasons with a smile of Abraham asks who he is, asking who his lord is.
