Queuing for a Bit of Vacation

Last 8th of July was the presidential election day in Indonesia, and acknowledged as public holiday in Indonesia. After taking my right to elect one of the candidate I immediately went to Ragunan Zoo, one of my favorite place in Jakarta to taking pictures. Apparently I was not the only one person who decided to take a little bit of vacation and taking pictures at the zoo. There was a very long line of motorcycles queuing to enter the zoo.

Working Happily

Many times in my life I feel so dissatisfied with what I have achieved. I want a better job, I want a better reward, I want a better life. I'm grumbling about the burden I have to carry every day. When I take times on the weekend and walk around Sunda Kelapa Port, Jakarta, I see how the workers worked there. Unloading the trucks and carrying material from trucks into the ships that were going to bring them to another islands. Working so hard under the attack of sunshine that was burning their skin. But look at them, even under that hard situation they were still smiling, and even laughing. They work so happily. It made me remember what a friend ever told me, love your job and work happily, successful comes afterward.

Grand Indonesia - The New Shopping Center

I feel so fortune that even in this crisis age Indonesia still can survive. This is proved by development of shopping center that's not halted, even maybe become slower. Last year a new exclusive shopping center open in the center of Jakarta, named Grand Indonesia. It's located not far from Bundaran HI, Jakarta. That high building in this picture is one of the tower.

This is how it looks from another angle. All the things offered at Grand Indonesia are branded items. And surprisingly when I visit it's quite crowded. Jakarta people not only survive but still spending money for expensive items.

Don't Ignore Me Please

While walking around a small island in Jakarta, Pramuka Island, I found this spot. This is a location where mangrove forests being set to be a conservation mangrove forest later on. There an old boat that has been ignored floating between the seeds of mangroves. Right beside it floating new beautiful boat which I believed being used to replace it. Would we be like the old bng old, ugly boat too? Getting finally ignored and replaced by the young and beautiful one?
