Indonesian counting

The picture above is showing a typical control panel of a skyscraper elevator.

What is missing? 13 and many fours, as 4 in Chinese is a homonym for 死 (death).

What do we learn? First, avoid bad luck and second, that the Chinese seem to run the ups and downs of most skyscrapers here in Jakarta.

Save ride!

Jakarta, May 2009.
