A visit to a large shopping mall in Jakarta is the perfect opportunity to do some people watching; and also see what fashions are in, and what are not.
But what was striking in Taman Anggrek was not what the chicks were wearing but what they were doing to their hair: there was no shortage of redheads, blondes and brunettes. And this in a country where everyone is born with black hair!
Quite bizarre really: cos when I first came to Indonesia nobody would dare dye their hair - and now everyone is doing it!
Also getting more popular at the moment are denim skirts. And even tattoos.
Winda Ayu: she has the dyed hair and denim skirt but where are the tattoos?
