Roads less traveled
The Bintaro toll was clogged so we wanted to head through the mebon jeruk toll through the backroads. But the backroads were also clogged up. One turn led to a detour which took us on a roundy round road to ciledug which was also clogged up. The auntie was giving off sour faces to my uncle for his choice of roads, i just kept to myself and focused on driving the damn car. But eventually we reached a small road which leads to taman anggrek and that means we only need about 5 minutes drive to central park from there...theorethically. But since the traffic was horrible it took us 15 minutes :p
Anyways we arrived in central park all starving, we had a "snack" in burger king and also to meet up with my dad who has managed to sneak off from his symposium in Cipto hospital. Central park looked a lot like vivo city singapore, or at least it tried to. The place was chock full of people and the toilets were dirty because the cleaners dont have a chance to clean because people kept using the potty. Parking connections were also a bit messed up, they had 2 LG levels which were below ground levels, they were seperated by half a level and the mall entrances were not strategically placed.
Overall todays small adventure to central park was not worth it in my opinion. Sure the place is nice with its wide collection of shops there, but the road getting there was too far if you live down south, and there were no luxury boutiques like LV and dior...not that i go to those minds of shops or anything. But todays jouney isnt all the buzzkill, after all getting to hour destination is already half the fun right?
But what do you think about central park mall? Is it a good place to hang in? Maybe for the people living near the mall...
