Praise for "Jakarta Good Food Guide Update 2009-2010":
What impresses most in the JGFG (pardon the Orba-esque acronym) is its all-round quality: the clean, elegant design by Le Bo Ye; the thoughtful separation of categories; the concise, catchy writing; and most of all the informative, critical, knowledgeable reviews ... the prose is consistently playful, insightful, polished and never clichĂ©d.

Laksmi's diligence in putting together this book deserves much praise ... the design of the book is also commendable.
