- Jawa (Java)
- Kalimantan (Borneo)
- Sulawesi (Celebes)
Among those five islands, I had lived in Jakarta (in) Java for many years... A few years ago when I still worked for a mining contractor in Jakarta, I had traveled to Kalimantan-Sumatra-Sulawesi for work only.

|Sultan Hasanuddin International Airport, Makassar|
|Mandala Monument, Makassar|
|Fort Rotterdam, Makassar|
|Pantai Losari, Losari Beach, Makassar|
Unfortunately, my trip to Makassar a few years ago was for business reason. There was not enough time to explore the city, except a few hours driving around down town and back again to the airport.
It is a good reason to come back!

Once people talks about Manado, I recall my Manadonese friend, Gustaf. Biar eksis gue tulis lengkap nih. He speaks Manadonese local language, so it is always good to go to Beautika, the Manadonese restaurant in South Jakarta with him. Plus his knowledge about Manadonese food is excellent!

At that time, we were working on a tender for a mining company in North Sulawesi and therefore we had to visit Manado. There were not many things that I could explore within such a short period…
