That is what the Pavilion Mall in KL was proclaiming.  We were looking for the Havaianas (Brazilian sandals) shop, so we didn’t go in to look at the art, but they wanted us to know it was ART TIME.

Okay.  We get it.

Commercialization of a volcano site


Tangkuban Perahu is an active volcano that is about a two hours’ drive from where I live.  It is about 30km north of Bandung, and it is a hub for local merchants.  The shot above is of all of the shops, both retail and food, that line the northernmost part of the trail.  There are at least five times as many shops on the total site, but this shot offered the best vantage point of the shops and trail.

Pondok Indah Mall


Yup, another mall.  After the interesting notes I got about the last one, I figured I might as well shoot some photos of the next big mall I went to.  This is Pondok Indah Mall.  I think I may have seen about half of the mall…maybe a third.  This place is huge.  Jakarta knows how to build big when they build malls.

To the Mall!

One thing I’m learning is that Jakarta really rocks at creating impressive malls.  We went to Pejaten Village Mall today to find shoes for the kids.  This is the view from the fourth floor, which is really the fifth or sixth floor, because there’s always a couple of floors below the ground level in every high-rise in Jakarta (at least the ones I’ve been in).

By the way, if you want to see the whole photo in one shot, click on the image and it’ll open in a window with the entire image in one view.
