these days, we're more familiar with keyboards and monitor screen than typewriter and a piece of paper. typewriter is pretty much old school now and more like antiques compare to computers.
that's why i could not help but take pictures when i found the displays of typewriters being sold in the flea market near one of the traditional markets in south of jakarta. they look well maintained, right?

now that the rainy season has come, dark clouds are always hanging over jakarta. though the sun is covered by the clouds, the hot temp is still unbearable cuz just before it pours, the humidity caused a 'sticky' day =)
pardon me on the quality of the pic, i took it with my camera phone.

How to plant a Mangrove
continuing my previous post.. do you wonder how to plant a mangrove? well, considering that the plant lives in a swamp.
few weeks ago, i get to see it firsthand. the guy in the picture above was planting one, as part of community program. he just stick the plant inside the swamp and tied it to a stick of bamboo that was previously planted on the site. so that the plant will be able to grow despite of the high tides.
pretty interesting, eh?

in jakarta, coastal zone is located in the northern part. however, due to the rapid development within the city, it affects the natural balance causing a quite serious erosion along the coast. one of the effort to overcome this issue is to preserve habitats for mangrove trees.
mangrove lives in a swamp as pictured above. mangroves provide significant value in the coastal zone as a buffer against erosion, storm surge and tsunamis. more and more awareness on this significant contribution of mangrove is being implemented to help the erosion in the coastal zone of jakarta. hopefully, it helps.

The shop is called Bread 'n Breakfast, located in Kemang. I find those stripes interesting, especially with that tree on the foreground :)

Stopped by on the sidewalk and got myself a bottle of cold tea. Oh, look at those cars lined up!
