there is a "Car Free Day" event held at Jalan Sudirman and Jalan MH Thamrin (Jakarta's main CBD) during the 4th Sunday every month. all private transport are prohibited to enter from 6 am to 2 pm. this is an effort to reduce the pollution in Jakarta and grow awareness to the residents of Jakarta to be more environmentally friendly... there are many social activities held during the occasion, which would be impossible in any other days considering the heavy traffic this road receives...

*a bazaar held to help the orphans in Jakarta...

badly... we're in the process of building one though from Lebak Bulus to Kota Train Station passing through the financial district of Jalan Sudirman and Jalan MH Thamrin...

but for now we'll have to do with the 7 corridors of Transjakarta Busway... hopefully to be 10 by the end of this year...

yup... so far it has function well for serving Jakarta considering the finances that we have, although there are still some issues that needs to be resolved so that Transjakarta Busway functions properly...

this is where it all begin for Jakarta as a city... in the past what existed in Jakarta was just this Sunda Kelapa Port, serving as a port for the Hindu Pajajaran Kingdom... however, in 1527 the port fell to the control of the Muslim Demak Kingdom and thus 22 June 1527 became the birthday of Jakarta...

today the port still functions, transporting many types of goods from all around Indonesia in traditional phinisi boats (the traditional Bugis ship - from South Sulawesi)... it is a tourist attraction by itself for people wishing to see these traditional boats, which the design remains unchanged from the past...

Sunda Kelapa Harbour
