Jakarta: Six Degrees

Indonesia’s capital is transforming itself into a more creative megapolis. Six locals tell us who’s making a difference.” (Aulia R. Sungkar)

Burhan Abe

Occupation: Editor-in-Chief Business: MALE Digital Interactive Magazine  

“Jakarta is a growing metrosexual city”  

Burhan Abe helms a new digital magazine, MALE. From the name, people can be assured that the magazine is designed for male readership. “Yes, it’s true, but I know quite number of women who enjoy reading it, as we also design the magazine for partygoers looking to find the city’s happening hangouts,” he says.  

The magazine’s sensual appeal has led to mixed reviews from the public, but Abe doesn’t see this as an obstacle. Jakarta has turned into a metrosexual city, and the people are becoming more tolerant and open-minded, says the guy who enjoys chilling out at a coffee shop with his gadgets around.    

Dianah Ng

Occupation: General manager, marketing & sales Business: Pazia  

“People are building a destination for their IT lifestyle”  

Dianah Ng has played an important role in running dozens of Pazia Shop IT retail chain outlets, operating under Indonesia’s giant IT company Pazia Pillar Mercycom. There are dozens of Pazia Shops across the country, each selling various gadgets from several top brands. It’s the only IT store in Indonesia featuring a café to hang out inside, and the one in Plaza Indonesia, Jakarta, is indeed one huge venue.  

“It’s an IT lifestyle destination as we want to provide customers with a comprehensive IT shopping experience,” says Ng, who is always on the go, and sampling various international authentic dishes is what she often enjoys in her leisure time.      

Dave Graciano

Occupation: F&B consultant

Business: Wolthers-Graciano (F&B consultant – hotel management)

“Wine is becoming lifestyle in this city”  

Guests are greeted by a European atmosphere infused with Asian hospitality as they enter Vintage Wine & Grill on the outskirts of Jakarta. It’s a great concept created by Dave Graciano, an F&B consultant who is also known as a wine expert.  Graciano designs various concepts of wine and dine establishments in Jakarta. According to him, the city is always thirsty for new creative concepts.
