View of the Chinese market, Passar Snees at Batavia. Anno 2002 this neighbourhood is known as Pasar Senen, one of the most popular shopping centres in Jakarta. Rach's reference to 'Snees' in the title is a Dutch corruption of 'Chinese', while 'senen' stands for Monday, the day on which the market was held.
