We call it jabotabek train.

The place to test our ability to survival.

Survive from thief,

survive from human pressure(when train is full),

survive from high speed (where you sit on top of train),

survive from delayed arrival, and

survive from ticket officer(we have to sneak, if we don’t buy a ticket)

well, I just can say, we have highly developed technique for survive of all of that

I really hope in the future everything is getting better.

this condition is really annoying

I hope government aware of that

RAMBUTAN(3)

There are many variety of rambutan. The most popular is ciplat. Ciplat is smaller than the others of rambutan. The hair is not much, and the hair is more big and solid. Inside fruit, there is not much liquid in there. Why ciplat is most popular is because the taste is very very very … sweet. There is little acidic taste, dominant taste is sweet taste. Because of that, ciplat is more expensive than other rambutan.

So ciplat is smaller stuff but has great taste.

So don’t ever underestimate small stuff

CLOSED ROAD

I can understand when there is a president pass road, so the road have to be close for the sake of security.

I can understand when there is a International event that need high security and then road around that has to be closed.

But,…

In Indonesia

I can’t understand why road has to closed just for event like wedding ceremony, dangdut concert, and layar tancap (a kind movie theater). Anyway, who has authority to close and unclose the road? Even my motorcycle can not get through it, and I had to turn back and find another road.

Normally, tree of rambutan is so big, very big, like tropical forrest tree. It can grow more than 10 meters height and the trunk diameter can grow more than 1 meter long. The opposite, the fruit of rambutan is so small compare than the tree. So big stuff produce small stuff and in order get those small stuff we have to make an effort or in other word we have to climb to get the fruit.

PAVEMENT/SIDEWALK(TROTOAR)

We all know that pavement is supposed to use by pedestrian. It is quiet surprising, because at some place in Indonesia there are some vendors who use pavement for place to sell. Really annoying, pedestrians don’t have place to walk anymore.

It is common situation in Indonesia. From my point of view, people are getting used to with condition like that. Actually the people don’t complain to the local government, instead they like the condition, because they don’t have to go far to buy something just go to nearest pavement.

rambutan dari wikipedia

Rambutan means hairy. But it is not animal or human. Rambutan is fruit; fruit that is commonly ate in Indonesia.

The fruit really has hair. The size of rambutan is as big as Ping-Pong ball. The anatomy of rambutan is, the outer layer is the skin. The skin is thick, and different like apple, we don’t eat the skin. The middle layer is the fruit it self, some variety has liquid in middle layer and some are not. The only we can eat is the middle layer. The inner layer is seed. Just throw seed in Indonesia’s land and it will grow to become new tree.

BUS STOP

Indonesia has the largest bus stop, if you ask where it is. It is everywhere. Ok, quiet confusing, isn’t? I mean it, it is really everywhere. Actually we have the real bus stop, but it doesn’t work properly. So everyone just ignore the existence of bus stop. In Indonesia, if we take regular bus, we can stop everywhere. Just say to “kondektur” (co-driver), you want to stop at this street, this place, or whatsoever. They will stop the bus exactly where you want to stop.
