Moving to South Jakarta
I am moving down to Kemang Area from Pusat. Should I see more traffic when i hit the road back from office? Office is at sudirman. Kemang is a good neighbourhood and am moving coz of my office expat community who decided to hang out at the same locality. What to expect and not to when I move down there?

Re: Moving to South Jakarta
You can expect to pay stupidly high prices for everything in that area, including your rent. That's likely to be astronomically daft.
You know it's stupid when you see the price listed in US$ or you pay more per month than my Rp25 million per year.
You can expect to be hanging around in bars, chatted up by ladies out to get as much cash out of you as possible.
You can't expect to find out anything about Indonesia or Indonesians.
Last place I'd go to live.
