What's Halloween without a real Jack-O-Lantern that you hand-carved yourself? It's difficult to source a large pumpkin in Jakarta, but smaller ones are readily available at supermarkets like Grand Lucky or at online marketplaces like Tokopedia. Be sure to check the sizes properly when you order online so you know what you are buying. Smaller pumpkins are easier to carve and is easier to clean, and you still get to carve simple shapes so it's almost just as good as the large ones! Moreover, when you deal with small ones, you can do several pumpkins with ease.
