Indonesian cuisines

I’d stayed in Singapore nearly seven months in 2005.

Given the length of this stay, it was surprising that I’d been charmed by local foods like Indonesian.

By chance, I watched a few typical Indonesian cuisines on a local TV program yesterday especially Padang origin where is the capital of West Sumatra province.

Padang original foods are ubiquitous not only all over Indonesia, but also in neighboring countries i.e., Malaysia and Singapore.

It’s famous for rich taste of succulent coconut milk and spicy chili.

 

From the standpoint of the existence of many radio stations, this country was one of intriguing regions for radio listeners.

In the 1970’s, I considered the Japanese service of Voice of Indonesia on SW was favorable and look forward to visiting someday.

I went to Jakarta last week for the first time however SW stations are already on the verge of extinction.

The past posts of 'travel_and_listening' category (except Japan) as of May 25

Why don't we savor 'simple listening' on the sidelines of travel?

 

The following list is all past posts of 'travel_and_listening' category, only local radios – no long distance MW nor SW services (In my opinion, they're too obsolete) , except heard in Japan, amounts to no less than 28 countries/regions and six continents.

FM in May 2018, (in Jakarta, Indonesia)

I was able to hear plenty of analog FM stations in Jakarta as listed on the Jakarta page in World radio map dot com.

 

(World Radio Map in Jakarta)

http://worldradiomap.com/id/jakarta

 

My first impression was…traffics in Jakarta are so heavy absolutely irksome situation.

I heard from a local staff that people in Jakarta spend a longer time in traffic compared to citizens of other major Asian cities.

 

97.90MHz `Ramale FM`, but I`m sure it`s `Female`

99.10MHz `Delta FM`

DAB+ in May 2018, (in Jakarta, Indonesia)

I`ve just returned from Jakarta, Indonesia.

It was my first trip to Jakarta (on business meeting) also tried to catch local DAB and FM stations by my XDR-P1DBP.

I`m really appreciate DAB radios, so excited to hear them for the first time in Indonesia.

 

The DAB+ trial service has been done on 229.072 MHz. (Block 12D)

I was able to receive RRI (Radio Republic Indonesia) Pro 1, Pro 2, Pro 3, Pro 4, Lima, Classic, Jazz, and Keroncong.

The `Abeno Harukas` in Osaka, Japan

My family went to Osaka, including `Abeno Harukas` two weeks ago.

I`ve been to Osaka many times even my family, however it was the very first time to visit the place.

It`s the Japan’s highest building, with its observatory, HARUKAS 300, at the very top in Osaka City.

`Abeno` is a place-name in South part of Osaka City, `Harukas` is an old Japanese expression meaning `to brighten, to clear up`.

As its namesake suggests, Abeno Harukas embodies the exhilration of clear, sweeping

views of Osaka from its top floor 300 meters in the air.

The complex’s wide array of facilities and amenities answer every need,

promising every visitor a relaxing time in a bright, comfortable environment.

It`s the future of multifunctional urban space in the sky.

Returned from Seoul last week

I’d stayed in Seoul, South Korea last week for pleasure with my wife, and didn't get around to post on this blog.

I`ve been to Korea a lot of times, so didn’t bring any receivers.

 

We were still able to see several shops, related to the Winter Olympics concluded in Pyeong-chang, took place last February.

Team Japan amassed 13 medals, its most ever in one Winter Games, surpassing the 10 it earned on home soil in Nagano (Japan) in 1998!

The team also racked up 43 top-eight finishes at the games, which was also an all-time high for the nation!

Pyeonchang2

 

For the first time, we went to the ‘Seoul Sky’ (Lotte World Tower), amazing views! 

It’s with 123 floors and 555M height is the world’s 5th tallest building, the future oriented vertical metropolis.

MW in June 2017, (in Malaysia) -2

Paul’s comments of the reception locations across his travel.

 

Singapore:

Radio listening was impossible due to noise-levels in the hotel, think every room had a plasma TV!

 

WRT in Singapore, Koji tried to chase MW in a park , it was good location.

http://listening-overseas.air-nifty.com/radio/2012/03/fm-band-on-15-f.html

 

Melaka City in Malaysia:

Bands were full of Thai stations with a few Indonesians.

Noted that there was a lot of common programming at times, other than news so difficult to work out who was who!

Tanah Rata (Cameron Highlands, Pahang, Malaysia):

Mix of Thai, China, Taiwanese, Indonesian and a few Filipinos.

Penang in Malaysia:

Thai stations were all over the show.

Only one Japanese (RKB radio in Fukuoka), lots of Chinese and Taiwanese and better signals from the Philippines.

Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysia:

Philippines all over the dial, a few from the subcontinent, strong Taiwanese and Chinese also.

Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei:

Their hotel was very noisy, a plonking great CRT in every room didn’t help and nothing new was heard.

MW in June 2017 (in Malaysia)

Why don't we savor 'simple listening' on the sidelines of travel?

Paul Ormandy, based in Oamaru – New Zealand, had stayed in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei in last June.

He kindly allowed me to introduce his MW reception result in Penang, Malaysia on this blog.

He and his wife traveled across Mayaisia from the city in the north to Kota Kinabalu in the east.

He said lots of the Filipinos used a mix of English and Tagalog.

They very commonly used English call-sign and a couple were heard giving their full license details at midnight local.

Have left out 99% of the Thai stations heard as, unless they use English IDs, they’re hard to identify for a non-Thai speaker!

 

Since I'd specialized in geography, travel with local radio listening (band-scan) is a very interesting hobby through a perspective of regional studies.

I'm the only person who can create such kinds of articles and columns both in English and in Japanese.

FM in July 2017 (in Maru-no-uchi, Tokyo, Japan)

In last July, I tried to do FM band-scan on the 35th floor of `Maru-no-uchi` building, in the central part of Tokyo.

Approximately 1 minute by foot from the Marunouchi South Exit of JR Tokyo Station.

Directly connected to Tokyo Station on the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line by underground passage.

(Marunouchi bldg. on GO TOKYO)

http://www.gotokyo.org/en/kanko/chiyoda/spot/40639.html

 

The receiver was my PL-380 with its telescopic antenna, the time was around 1pm.

The word ‘THP’ is a traditional high-powered regional FM station, including NHK,

‘NLP’ is a new style low-powered community FM station and ‘WFM’ is a new style complementary (supplementary) service by traditional MW broadcaster,

mainly aired between 90MHz and 94.9MHz, sometimes called ‘Wide-FM’.

(the complementary / supplementary FM - explanations on this blog)
