Ojek

A days ago, I've chatted with my friend in Netherland. She said she was very happy to live there even if sometimes she rele missed every unique things in Indonesia.

Then I asked her about what things she couldn't find in there but can find everydays in Indonesia. She said that she couldn't find 'ojek'! and thats make us laugh and I said 'Of course there's no ojek'

Then I don't know I just think What about write some story of ojek on this blog. I thougt that will be cool, right? :)

and
What excatly 'ojek' mean??

Well, Ojek is a kind of transport like taxi but not used a car, its used a motorcycle. Yea... motorcycle. It's sounds weird, right? But, it's true. ;)

So, if you wanna use ojek to go somewhere you have to go to their station or in Indonesian it called 'pangkalan'. Ojek station wasn't like train or bus station! Its like umm.. I can't explain it but you can see this pic.


So badly I think. :-? O yeaa.. you see those persons behind motorcycles? They are people whose jockey those motorcycles or in here the called 'tukang ojek' but I think you can call them ojekers. :p

In ojek station, choose an ojeker and tell him the place you wanna go. If he know that place, you just need use helmet (he'll give you) and he ready to take you wherever you wanna. But if he doesn't know, you can ask another ojeker.

When you arrive in the place you want to go, don't forget to pay the ojeker and also return his helmet. hehehehe....

Its simple, right?? But not everybody wanna use this transport, neither do I. And I don't know why, maybe its because they had their own ride, just like me. :)

So, wanna enjoy you quick trip with ojek?? ;)

    Again an interesting thing that I didn't know.

    I'm not sure if I would trust that way of transportation, unless I knew the person.
