Today, visiting museum is not boring because we will a new design at the Museum. For example museum has many facilities which support our needs, such as mosque, canteen, garden, and interesting room design.

After we arrived in Kota Shelter, we walked to the main area at Kota Tua. This area is located in 1.3 square kilometers of North Jakarta and West Jakarta. This place is known as Old Jakarta or Old Batavia.

We found a large field that is surrounded by many old buildings and we saw many people in that area. They were doing many activities for example cycling, walking around, playing with their children, and many others. Before we enter the field, we decided to eat something in this place. We were looking for a canteen or food stall near the place. Finally, we found some food stalls which sold many varieties of food. There were Soto, fried rice, fried foods, and other Indonesian foods. I ate a bowl of Soto and a glass of ice tea, Faozan did either. After eating those foods, we took a stroll at the field. We saw some statue-like people. The statues are some people that wear traditional soldierly uniform and their bodies are painted with special paint. I don’t know about the special paint. They did not move as though they were real statues. They looked nice. If we want to donate some money to them, maybe we can take a photo with them. They provided a small container where we could put some money inside it. At the field, we also saw many types of merchandise; traditional toys, unique dolls, typical souvenirs of Jakarta, and others.

Sepedaan Bareng Sepeda Kampus

Bersepeda bersama teman memang menyenangkan terlebih dengan teman akrab. Awal bulan Juli lalu aku dan Nana, teman akrabku, bersepeda di seputaran kampus kami, Gadjah Mada. Sepeda yang kami gunakan pun sepeda milik kampus. Sepeda tersebut biasa disebut dengan ‘sepeda kampus’.

Keinginan untuk mencoba sepeda kampus sudah lama kami inginkan yaitu sejak diwacanakannya program tersebut. Namun belum bisa kami lakukan saat kami masih kuliah karena diluncurkannya sepeda kampus tersebut setelah kami lulus kuliah. Jadi, kami belum sempat mencoba sepeda tersebut sewaktu kami masih kuliah.
