Brightspot Market 10th

 Brightspot Market 10thCreative industries are the future of Indonesia. This statement is so optimistic but I think it is not impossible even we have a minister of creative industries which they are only 2 in the world, i.e. UK and Indonesia. Indonesian youth are very powerful and unsurprisingly, the majority of our population is youth. They are full of energy, idea and very consumptive🙂

One of the reasons that Indonesian economic situation is quite steady (the economic growth still positive, like China) during the 2008 global crisis is the power of domestic market, which is the middle income class, particularly Indonesian youth.  That is the reason behind the success of this market. Brightspot market is the best market displaying the Indonesian creative products (even though not 100% local product, but at least the most stuffs here are locals).

I think it is really reasonable that this kind of youth or generation is called the Brightspot Generation😉

Bakmi Abun

Bakmi Abun, Kelapa GadingBakmi means noodles, whereas Abun is a person’s name (Chinese nick name). So this restaurant offers Abun’s noodles. This is my mom’s favourite noodles when she was young (around 30 years ago). She really loves their wonton / dumpling (suikiaw) (see the pictures underneath). Their first branch is at Gang Kelinci, Pasar Baru street market, Jakarta Pusat. Every time I go with my mom to Pasar Baru, we always eat chicken noodles either here, bakmi Gang Kelinci, or Bakmi Sui Sen (https://goodmorningjakarta.wordpress.com/2012/08/29/bakmi-sui-sen-sui-sen-noodles/).

The tastes of all their food are great and I love the texture of their noodles. Don’t forget also to order their nasi goreng (fried rice). Bakmi and nasi goreng are the must ordered food in this restaurant and when you come to Jakarta😉
