Kampoeng Tempo Doeloe 2013

Every year in Jakarta there is Jakarta Food and Fashion Festival. This is a part of the program Enjoy Jakarta which promotes Jakarta as a tourist attraction. The Jakarta Food and Fashion Festival is usually held at Mall Kelapa Gading for several weeks in May and June. I went to this festival on May 25th 2013. There were various traditional Indonesian food sold on the booths here. In order to be able to buy food in the festival area, the visitors had to exchange their money with the festival money from “De Javasche Bank”. The nominal of the money was also old-timey, there were several nominal ranging from 1 Roepiah to 20 Roepiah. One thousand current Rupiah is equal to their 1 Roepiah. The food were very tempting, especially those that could rarely be found in this big city in modern times. I guess I spent almost 100.000 Rupiahs only for the foods alone. On the same day there was also Wine and Cheese Expo.
