This is a part of an ever-updating post, but the first part is alright so I upload it
As a person with an overall privileged condition: healthy body, no allergy (anymore), have my own saving so I can pay something upfront first then being reimbursed, as well having a laidback and nrima (Javanese, lit: accepting, which sometime’s not a good characteristic to have) personality, although I tried to give my suggestion in accessibility and accommodation whenever I can, especially in regards to other people or participants in an event I’m an organiser of, I’ve never really given a thought about this enough about when I’m the one being accommodated for.
After meeting a lot more people in a wider spectrum and having more knowledge and discussions about accessibility and being asked on what kind of accessibility access and accommodation I or people like “me” actually want, I did some hard contemplation and some more reading (read: tabs in high tens). I will give some of my thought and experiences below.
(Making a note for a friend who’s in charge of accessibility and accommodations, hence a few of my notes for her sprinkled around)
If someone mentions London, other than all the royalties, Sherlock Holmes, and Big Ben, The Tube will be one of the word coming to your mind immediately. Of course, if you say “underground train”, other than Tokyo and New York, London Tube is definitely a brand by itself.

(This is a part of Martian Series (Planet series?) I’m queueing in this moment)
Looking through this map which I have previously mentioned in this article, a crater’s name lit up my interest. Tomini Crater? Is that the same Tomini with the Tomini I know? After shifting through Martian Crater name list, I found 4 of craters with Indonesia-related names. Apparently this has been caught interest of other Indonesian article writers as proven by these articles. Are there other features in out solar system with names based on Indonesian culture and mythology? Apparently they are. Shifting through IAU Gazetteer of Planetary Nomenclature, there are few familiar an unfamiliar names with “Indonesian” in their description.
So I… have just realised after I travel abroad, although for me it’s easy to have food to eat in Indonesia, for people visiting… not really. The concept of allergy is not something widely spread in Indonesia. Though most food (esp. Java and Sumatra) are definitely halal, but I think it won’t be that easy for vegetarians, or people with peanut-free diet, for example. And… as an Indonesian, I know that some vegetable-based food in Indonesia have animal product or egg hidden inside. I believe reaaal pure vegetable dishes can be counted although there are a lot of vegetable-based dish. Though the number of vegetarian restaurant is growing, for example, you want to be eat in local food establishments. Going to fast food joints when you go abroad, I believe, should be the last choice. So! Without further ado, my short guide for easier eating in Indonesia with dietary restriction. (Note: no research, just based on my own knowledge. Food’s mostly Javanese, “typical Indonesian” and what I thought when I wrote this. Including the diet, so please correct them for mistakes. Doesn’t have every allergy there is)
