Jakarta from my camera : June 2012

It is June, and Jakarta -big city often referred as Big Durian- will be one year older. Apart from smoked,fumed cursed and tot-toted motorbikes and cars fighting for their tiny space on its roads and 'gangs', I found plenty interesting things in Jakarta.

My son sketch for his version of Jakarta Guidebook he created with his classmates few months ago, and his introduction about Jakarta were interesting, with his personal view about Big Durian -rough and smelly on the outside but really sweet and great on the inside- gave me the idea to capture many you would not -or not yet- see about Jakarta.

It's unfortunate that my first snapshots were taken from a deli inside big hotel, which of course putting a lot into this celebration month. Put it aside, 'Roti Semprong' -a thin,crispy and sweet traditional snack made from flour and shaped onto cigar-size was always a prominent feature you would see in June, alongside 'Roti Buaya' -a crocodile shaped sweet bun-.

That's all for now. Will be back with more pictures...
