Jakarta costume stores

(Jason Moran) Hi! Having a hard time finding costume stores in Jakarta (for Halloween). I hear there are rental locations? And how about actually costume sales? geez, if there are only a few stores, i assume its the same costumes being worn every year!?!!
BTW, i saw your recent post on your blog. my wife currently supports ICAC as a US-certified marriage and family therapist. she is the only native indonesian therapist there, and speaks fluent bahasa and english, so she is the go-to therapist for mixed couples.

(Miree) Hi Jason, Kemchicks in Kemang Raya still have a few costumes & accessories for sale, was in there yesterday. Also you can find in Kemang Utara B30 "The Custome Closet" They pretty reasonable price. Thank you for the information regarding your wife, really appreciate it and good information for our readers. Good luck in finding non re-cycled Halloween Costumes and have a good Hallows Eve!

Learning Support, please help

(Ruth)Hi,We are moving from Singapore in 2 weeks to Jakarta. We are using Santa Fe to pack and move us, so I dare say I may meet you along the line. My elder son has very slight dsylexia. Is there any place for extra learning support in Jakarta. He presently goes to a brilliant place here in Singapore. They told me I would have to fly back to singapore for help. I don’t believe this to be true. The school that he and his brother will go too: does have learning support, which I hope will help. My husband and I have driven past a place called Jolly Phonic s in Kemang. However when I google it I could find nothing!
