Place Where We Can always Learn and See People

MY FAVORITE place could be everywhere. It could be shopping center, bookstore, restaurant, train station, museum, street, zebra cross, or traditional market. I love  staying in place where I can see people. For me, seeing people is fun. People, even they don’t talk directly, they can tell us many stories about their life.

Traditional market is one of my favorite place. It doesn’t mean traditional market is the best place to spend money because the price is lower than supermarket (hihi), but traditional market is the best place where I can see (and learn) how people make money and connection.

In the traditional market, making money is about to wait. They can’t get the buyer suddenly. In the traditional market, seller should interact with people and so the buyers. It’s different when we shopping in the shopping center or supermarket. There’s no interaction between people to people as close as in traditional market.

These pictures was taken several months ago when I was in Yogyakarta. I was very excited walking through this people and moment. Traditional market in Yogyakarta of course different with the one in Jakarta. It has its own story, and I guess every different place will have its own story.

I believe as long as God create different people in this world, story among people must be diverse.  As long as I can stand among different people, I can heard and seen many stories. In the end, staying in a place with (different) people is profitable. It’s not only because they teach me about the real life, but also teach me how to love, care, and respect to others.

    Kebetulan nih, saya pernah tinggal dekat dengan pasar rakyat, nama nya pasar pagi di jl Raden Saleh – Padang. Dulu saya suka tongkorongin mak-mak yang jualan itu sewaktu nolong bawaain belanjaan mama. Akhirnya entah mengapa suasana pasar rakyat pun sudah ga asing lagi bagi saya. Sampai sekarang pun masih juga begitu. Kadang kalau hari minggu/ libur, saya yang pergi belanja dapur ke pasar tersebut, sementara istri yg beres-beresin di rumah. Lumayanlah mba, lebih irit, dan barang jualannya asli masih segar, terutama sayuran dan ikan.. kalah jauh supermarket yang menang di gaya dan sejuk doang hahaha.. 😀
