5 Best Things to Do in Jakarta

Taman Mini Indonesia Park
This unique theme park is a great way to spend a day in Jakarta, where you and family can learn about the cultural diversity of the Indonesian archipelago. Multiple pavilions represent the unique architecture, traditional costumes and performing arts of the different islands. Its centrepiece manmade lake depicts the archipelago in miniature scale, which you can view from above on a cable car ride. Also onsite are museums, a flower garden, a bird park, a water park, library, theatre shows and an IMAX cinema.
Indonesia National Gallery
Art lovers will love spending some time at The National Gallery, a museum and art centre in Central Jakarta that is full of well over a thousand pieces by national and foreign artists. Permanent exhibits include sculptures and paintings by famous Indonesian artists, names like Raden Saleh and Bali’s Nyoman Lempad, while temporary exhibits are regularly held in its three expansive art halls. Also onsite are a library and a special lab for restoration of significant artworks.

Jakarta Chinatown (Glodok)
Jakarta’s Chinatown is both an historical and culturally significant site, often referred to as Glodok. Chinatown is located adjacent Kota Tua, Jakarta’s old town, sharing the nostalgic ambiance of the whole area, with far eastern architecture dominating the streetscapes. You can find numerous 17th century-old temples forming part of the townscape, among the dominant rows of family-run shops and restaurants.

Jakarta Old Town (Kota Tua)
Jakarta Old Town is often referred to as Kota Tua Jakarta or Old Batavia, which is rich in history as the former downtown area of the capital and headquarters of the Dutch East India Company. Throughout town you can admire buildings with architectural features of a bygone era, and most of Jakarta’s museums can be found here. Restoration efforts of deteriorating structures are underway, pushing the old town to be included in UNESCO’s world heritage list.
Sunda Kelapa and Maritime Museum
A unique historical attraction in North Jakarta, the Sunda Kelapa old sea port offers an open-air experience with majestic traditional schooner ships called pinisi parked in a row. Within walking distance is Indonesia’s main Maritime Museum, referred to locally as Museum Bahari, a great spot to learn about Indonesia’s maritime history and the tumultuous past of the world’s largest archipelago. Inside are exhibits of seafaring vessels from every island in Indonesia, together with naval maps and oceanographic information.

Pablo Zabaleta Feels Liverpool’s Title Tension Could Help Man City

Pablo Zabaleta feels title tension at Liverpool can help his former club Manchester City retain the Premier League trophy.
Zabaleta was part of two title-winning squads during his nine years at City.
Now at West Ham, the 34-year-old thinks there is anxiety among Liverpool supporters as they look to end a 29-year wait to finish top of the league.
“When the team is not playing well, it seems the fans are a little bit tense," he said.
“That can make it difficult for the players to concentrate and play well.
“Some of the Liverpool fans have been waiting for that Premier League medal."
Liverpool had drawn three of their previous four Premier League matches before defeating Watford 5-0 on Wednesday, after which manager Jurgen Klopp suggested that his team had proved some of their doubters wrong.
Zabaleta was spotted having a long chat with former boss Pep Guardiola after West Ham were beaten 1-0 at City on the same night.
In a dramatic finish to the 2011-12 season, the defender was part of the City team who scored twice in stoppage time to beat QPR 3-2 and win the English title for the first time since 1968.

Zabaleta, who scored the opening goal in that game, understands the importance having experience of winning competitions can have in the latter stages of the season.
“There is a long way to go and it’s important to have won the Premier League previously because City have been in this situation before," he said.
“Both times we won the league, we were behind the leaders at this point. Some players in the dressing room now have experience of that and that is going to be key.
“They can talk to the others, keep everyone focused and tell them their experiences."
City begin a run of four games in two weeks across three competitions when they go to Bournemouth on Saturday.
They are still on course to become the first English club to win all four competitions in one season, although they trail Liverpool by a point with 10 Premier League games remaining.

A. Lange & Söhne Releases the Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase “25th Anniversary” Limited Edition

During SIHH, A. Lange & Söhne announced that in honor of the 25th anniversary of the original Lange 1 timepiece, the German brand would be introducing a new limited edition take on the watch every month of 2019 up until October 24, 2019 (10 total watches). January saw the release of the Lange 1 “25th Anniversary” Edition, and today we’re happy to introduce you to the second commemorative model: the Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase “25th Anniversary”.

The Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase is a timepiece that has existed within the greater A. Lange & Söhne collection since 2014. It was released as an extension to the Lange 1 Moon Phase with a larger diameter at 41 mm (2.5 mm larger than its older sibling) and a slightly reorganized dial layout. The moon-phase display is larger than that of the original Lange 1 Moon Phase thanks to its placement in the hour/minute subdial compared to its former placement in the small seconds dial. For proportion’s sake, the big date was increased in size as well by 4 percent.

Just as with the Lange 1 “25th Anniversary” Edition, the new Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase features an argenté-colored dial made of solid silver with blue numerals, indexes, and hands, appropriate for the watch’s “silver jubilee.” The moon-phase disc on the new model is what separates it from any previous release as this is the first time that A. Lange & Söhne has created a moon-phase display with a disc made of solid white gold. Six stars and a number of additional dots are hand-engraved to create the starry night sky surrounding the inlaid golden moon. This construction offers a three-dimensional effect that enhances the poetic complication.

Caliber L095.3 is visible through the sapphire crystal exhibition caseback. As is typical of A. Lange & Söhne, the movement is superlatively finished and twice assembled by hand. The three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver is decorated with Glashütte ribbing and allows a view of the in-house built balance spring. Holding the hairspring in place is a balance cock that has been hand-engraved with the number 25 in the style of Lange’s traditional big date window. The special engraving is surrounded by a floral motif and all engraved recesses are accentuated with a blue coating to tremendous effect.

McLaren F1 designer pens reworked Dendrobium D-1 XP-2

British start-up Dendrobium has announced that former Lotus chief designer Peter Stevens has made design tweaks to the firm’s D-1 electric supercar.

Stevens, known for designing a number of British sports cars including the McLaren F1 and Jaguar XJR-15, has made “small but beneficial changes” to the D-1, resulting in the new XP-2 concept.

With a target weight of 1750kg, Dendrobium says the fully carbonfibre XP-2 will “rewrite the rules for the hypercar ownership experience”.

Stevens said: “My small changes to the D-1 to create the new XP-2 were inspired by improving airflow of the car, as well as visually enhancing the drama of this exceptional electric hypercar.”

The XP-2 retains the striking styling of the D-1 on which it is based, with wide air channels between the two-seater cabin and wings to improve aerodynamic efficiency, and a prominent rear diffuser aimed at maximising downforce.

Revealed in 2018, the D-1 is aiming for a top speed of 200mph and a 0-60mph time of 2.7sec. The model is expected to use a four-wheel-drive system and three electric motors to produce 1475lb ft, nearly 300lb ft more than the all-electric Rimac Concept One. 

Despite the uncertainty posed by Brexit for manufacturers, Dendrobium remains committed to manufacturing the D-1 in the UK. 

Ahead of the concept’s Salon Privé reveal last year, company boss Nigel Gordon-Stewart said: “We are developing unique cabling and connector systems, as well as our own complete vehicle integration and ADAS hardware and software. From a technical perspective, the D-1 will be a British engineering tour de force.”

HSEL Spring Major Receives $174K In Prizes From MSI

High School Esports League (HSEL) has announced that its Spring Major will award over $174,000 (£130,897.59) worth of peripherals from MSI.

The top eight teams across all nine of the approved titles will receive a mouse, keyboard, and headset as rewards. According to HSEL, this is the “largest prizing in high school esports history.”

Mason Mullineaux, Co-founder and CEO of High School Esports League commented in a statement: “We started HSEL because when we were in high school, we dreamed about having school-approved competitions for our favorite games with trophies, varsity letters, college scholarships, and prizing.

“Now we have over 1,500 partnered high schools across North America delivering on that dream for today’s students—and MSI’s massive contribution to our Spring Major prize pool is just more proof that the foundation for tomorrow’s esports superstars is in today’s high school gamers.”

The nine games that comprise the Spring Major – which will span from March 18th to May 10th – are Overwatch, Dragon Ball FighterZ, League of Legends, Rainbow Six Siege, Rocket League, Super Smash Bros., Hearthstone, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Fortnite.

Those teams will also qualify for the Summer Invitational, with the winners in each game claiming an ‘MSI Esports Arena’ with twelve gaming PCs.

Esports Insider says: We’re glad to see this level of support for high school esports, considering it could well help to produce the next wave of talent that enters esports in the near future. The peripheral prizes are cool, but the real impressive part of the deal, to us, is the ‘MSI Esports Arena’ prize for the Summer Invitational.

American Singer – Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande-Butera (born June 26, 1993) is an American singer, songwriter and actress. She began her career in 2008 in the Broadway musical 13, before playing the role of Cat Valentine in the Nickelodeon television series Victorious from 2010 to 2013, and in the spinoff Sam & Cat from 2013 to 2014. Grande made her first musical appearance on the soundtrack for Victorious and was signed to Republic Records in 2011 after music executive Monte Lipman came across one of her YouTube videos covering songs.

Grande released her debut album, Yours Truly in 2013, which was influenced by 1990s R&B and 1950s doo-wop, and peaked atop the US Billboard 200. Grande ventured into EDM on her second album, My Everything (2014), which also topped the US charts and featured four top ten singles on the Billboard Hot 100, the most by any artist in 2014: “Problem", “Break Free", “Bang Bang", and “Love Me Harder". Her third album, Dangerous Woman (2016), explored pop and dance, and became her first number-one album in the United Kingdom. She experimented with trap on her next two releases, Sweetener (2018) and Thank U, Next (2019), with the former winning a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album while the latter had largest streaming week ever for a pop album. With the singles “Thank U, Next" , “7 Rings", and “Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored", Grande became the first solo artist to hold the top three spots on the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously, and the second musical act overall after The Beatles in 1964. Grande is also the first artist to have the lead singles from each of their first five studio albums debut within the top-ten on the US charts.

Critics have compared Grande’s wide vocal range to that of Mariah Carey. Her accolades include one Grammy Award, one BRIT Award, three American Music Awards, three MTV Europe Music Awards and two MTV Video Music Awards. She has supported a range of charities and has a large following on social media, becoming the most followed woman on Instagram in February 2019. In 2016, Time named Grande as one of the 100 most influential people in the world on their annual list, and in 2018, Billboard named her Woman of the Year.

Kedah sedar ancaman JDT, Pahang dan PKNS

ALOR SETAR: Bekas pemain Kedah dan bekas Jurulatih skuad bawah 17 tahun (B-17) Perlis, Akmal Rizal Ahmad Rakhli menjangkakan skuad Kedah yang kini berada pada kedudukan tertinggi carta liga bakal mendapat tentangan yang hebat dari tiga lagi pasukan iaitu Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT), Pahang dan PKNS FC pada saingan Liga Super musim ini.

Beliau yang juga pengulas sukan untuk Liga Malaysia berkata, terdapat beberapa faktor yang mendorong skuad Lang Merah mampu muncul pencabar terkuat musim ini seperti dipamerkan dalam empat perlawanan pertama.

“Kita lihat Kedah yang kini menghuni tangga teratas Liga Super, jelas memilliki corak serangan yang pantas serta memiliki barisan pertahanan yang berkualiti hasil dari percaturan Ketua Jurulatihnya Aidil Sharin Sahak.

“Kelebihan Kedah juga adalah kerana memiliki lima import yang berada pada tahap yang terbaik kerana dalam saingan liga, pasukan yang memiliki pemain import terbaik maka pasukan mampu berin saingan kelompok teratas liga..itu yg kita lihat tiap-tiap tahun berlaku."

“Setakat ini kita sudah melihat lapan pemain Kedah termasuk semua importnya iaitu Fernando Rodriquez dan Jonatan Bauman, Shakir Hamzah, Anmar Al Mubaraki dan Renan Alves berjaya menghasilkan gol dan itu satu lagi faktor kerana untuk menjadikan satu pasukan yang baik, kita memerlukan ramai pemain yang mampu menjaringkan gol dan itulah yang berlaku dalam pasukan Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) sebelum ini dan kini berlaku dalam skuad Kedah."

Selain Kedah, Akmal turut menjangkakan saingan sengit yang akan ditampilkan oleh juara liga super lima kali berturut-turut JDT yang dibarisi jentera serangan import yang hebat musim ini seperti penyerang licik Diogo Luis Santo yang terlebih dahulu mencetak nama di kelab Buriram United Thailand, selain pemain tengah berpengalaman Leandro Velazquez dan Gonzalo Cabrera.

Ini diikuti skuad Pahang dengan barisan pemain yang hebat seperti Dickson Nwakaeme yang dikenali sebagai ‘orang besi’ dan Ze Love yang merupakan seorang penyerang yang pernah beraksi bersama bintang Brazil, Neymar Jr selama dua musim pada 2010 dan 2011 ketika bermain untuk pasukan Santos.

PKNS FC pula yang kini berada di kedudukan keempat juga suatu ancaman besar dengan kehebatan penyerang berbisanya dari Liberia iaitu Kpah Sherman yang telah membuktikan ketajamannya dengan jaringan gol seawal minit kedua perlawanan sewaktu menewaskan PKNP FC minggu lalu.

“Inilah empat pasukan yang saya jangkakan boleh bersaing dengan lebih jauh dalam saingan Liga Super musim ini sekiranya pasukan-pasukan itu dapat mengekalkan momentum serta prestasi semasa masing-masing secara berterusan,’ katanya.

Banyak Orang RI Beli Nissan GT-R Gara-gara Nonton Film Kartun

Jakarta – Populasi sportcar di Indonesia memang bisa dihitung jari. Sebab hanya orang-orang tertentu yang bisa membeli mobil berharga miliaran rupiah itu. Salah satu sportcar yang cukup memiliki banyak pengguna di Indonesia adalah Nissan GT-R.

“Data di komunitas kami menunjukkan jumlah pemilik Nissan GT-R di Indonesia antara 45-50 orang. Tapi bisa aja jumlahnya lebih banyak dari itu," sebut President GT-R Owner Club Indonesia (GOCI), kepada detikOto, minggu lalu.

Ada beberapa alasan mengapa orang Indonesia lebih memilih sportcar buatan Jepang ketimbang buatan Eropa. Salah satunya karena faktor harga Nissan GT-R yang terjangkau dibandingkan sportcar lainnya.

“Nissan GT-R itu menurut kami sportcar yang dengan harga murah, tapi power dan performance-nya itu dapat. Entry level buat supercar sih ini ya," lanjut Budi. Dan tidak karena harganya saja yang terjangkau, banyak juga orang Indonesia yang membeli Nissan GT-R berdasarkan ikatan emosional.

“Mereka (pengguna Nissan GT-R) bisa dibilang kayak kolektor juga. Karena dari kecil sering lihat film animasi Initial D. Itu kan lawannya (Toyota AE86) GT-R kan? Jadi akhirnya banyak yang antusias dan berniat membeli mobil ini," kata Budi sambil menyebut pengguna Nissan GT-R di Indonesia di dominasi kaum pria.

Sedikit info, Nissan GT-R memang jadi salah satu pemeran utama di serial animasi Initial D. Mobil ini diceritakan bersaing dengan Toyota AE86 Trueno dalam balap drift yang berlangsung di Bukit Akina.

Tokoh utama dalam film animasi ini adalah Takumi Fujiwara yang mengendarai Toyota AE86 Trueno. Sedangkan tokoh antagonisnya adalah Takeshi Nakazato yang mengendarai Nissan Skyline GT-R dengan kode BNR32.
