When I was in Jogjakarta for my business trip, what impressed me the most was the simple lifestyle of everyone there. Comparing ourselves from the major city and them, they don’t pursue after wealthy and richest, but a simple life where they enjoy the most. I can see they really enjoy their daily life while we always rush from a place to another destination just to earn a living. Isn’t better if we just live a simple life, yet meaningful instead of everyday rush hours?
I manage to get a shot of the people lifestyle where they were playing carrom by the road side. Question is, will you/we play carrom by the roadside and tourist will actually looking at you when you’re playing? I even witnessed with my own eyes that they were sleeping by the roadside or corridor; is not one of them, but many of them… Will you do that?
This is what they call the “Undag” in Indonesia if I’m correct. In Malaysia, we call this “Kereta Kuda”. Well, I think they name it quite nice and advanced comparing Kereta Kuda in Malaysia
Of course, one of the main transportation is the trishaw or in Bahasa we call it “beca”. I had this trishaw on every nights with my colleagues, and we will be brought to many streets and places. It was during the fasting month that time, thus we can’t see any interesting stuff, and they closed their shops/doors very early. If you have the chance to be there, make sure you take it. I’m sure you’ll love it. I paid for a ride at RM10 only and I was up there for nearly 45min
