Close to the nature

At bus stop for busway located at Dukuh Atas, it getting us close to the nature. Give us realization that the sun shining on to us softly or viciously. And how cloudy sky help us to cool down plus able to make us totally wet when cloudy sky changing into rainy day. Prepare yourself, your heart, your boots, raincoat and umbrella to enjoy sightseeing at bus stop Dukuh Atas.

Living in Jakarta is tough

Few days to go before Lunar Year celebration, suddenly there was shocking news. Someone drove her car and hit 12 pedestrians. Took the life of 9 and if you count the unborn child then all total : 10 victims. Die for nothing. Horrible!

People said that living here in Jakarta was hard. Being pedestrian you could get hit by speeding cars, while you are crossing the street or just standing near the bus stop. If you use public transportation (take your pick starting from the cheapest to the expensive) then you might be mugged or worst. Sexual harassment escalate to rape. Or if you are out under the heavy rain, a falling (big heavy) tree could also kill you.

Empty hopes

Usually people hope for the best along with another year to come.

Apparently that kind of hope is not going to happen this year; related to public transportation. I am so fed up with everything that I saw it made me not really in the mood to update my blog last week.

And everything stay the same...

One day full of rain already made chaos on Jakarta's traffic. Now it has been three days...

Too many vehicles around Jakarta, perhaps? Or lack maintenance of utilities and facilities to support traffic? It is not like we are having rainy season for the first time.

Ages ago, the only problem that we have during the heavy rain was traffic jam. Since the stoplight were mostly dead during heavy rain, you can imagine how catastrophe that was. But then again, cars and motorcycle not as many as nowadays. And now all those cars and motorcycle have to deal with problems like flood and yes that is also happening on main street. Where there are a lot of offices located there and obviously people who will be affected by the flood. And as if that is not enough, branches from trees falling down hitting parked vehicles and of course hurt people. I heard that bus stop for busway was closed due to the damages by the fallen tree. Yikes.
