The sharp trap of hell in Indonesia

There are many markets or business opportunities that are still unseen or hidden from most people’s eyes.
Indonesian people, however, are very keen on seeing them.
Like an artisan coffee seller with bicycle, not long after that, there comes an herbal drink seller with bicycle.
Or the growing-to-be-famous online shop with unique stuffs.

But, there are some people who create the opportunity in the wrong way, like these people mentioned in this post.
Flat tire issues do not always happen, so these people are actually experiencing a great deficit.
So, what do they do? They scatter nails on the road or the street not far from their patch-up places.

Try to drive in a 30 km/hours, and pay careful attention to the street.

If your vehicle got the nail, don’t panic and try to pull over after you are sure it’s safe, and take the nail. If you insist on driving, the tire can tear and become worse.

When you get your tire patched up, watch carefully because often they will sabotage your tire and make it worse. Thus, you have to pay more to change to a new tire with the price ranging from IDR 30.000 to IDR 45.000 ( $US 3 to 4,5).

The officers from a community once collected 300 kg worth of nails just in the area of Central Jakarta.
Some streets that are usually scattered in nail are the Daan Mogot, Hasyim Ashari, Medan Merdeka Utara, Senen market area, Pulogadung area, and Cawang area.

Sure, it is great to be able to create the business opportunity which means more income or benefits. But doing it with this kind of act is really unacceptable, isn’t it?

Kuala Namu International Airport, the new tourist spot?

It really is not weird to have an airport where it turns out to be a tourist spot. Take a loot at the endless attraction in Caribbean Island’s airport.
Many people are enjoying the beach, but not particularly the sand and the sea. Instead, they are enjoying the jet power from the landing plane near the seashore.
Well, no wonder that it attracts so many locals and tourists. It really is an amazing and incomparable experience.

Meanwhile in Indonesia, there was a new international airport opening last month, July 2013. It is called Kuala Namu International Airport, and it is located in Deli Serdang, North Sumatra.
The airport deserves the word ‘international’ because it does look to be very classy if compared to the ordinary airport like Soekarno-Hatta airport.

However, it has nothing like the low-flying planes, yet it is still packed with many people. So, what’s so exciting about it? Of course, the planes.
Locals are coming to take pictures, posting it to social media, spreading mat, sitting all day, talking to each other, then see the planes taking off and landing.

I wonder, where’s the fun in that? But then again, Indonesian are known for their togetherness. They don’t need a premium quality of tea or coffee, and instead all they need is the moment of drinking the tea or coffee with family or friends.
