So there were demonstrations along the roundabout all of yesterday and this morning. All the issues and speeches broadcast over loud hailers this weekend had to do with the betterment of workers' welfare. I checked out the photos and videos the colleagues' took and marvelled at how Jakarta took these peaceful demonstrations in its stride, notwithstanding the road closures and long traffic jams. How on earth does this city function?
I'm not curious enough to get out to explore the city. I'm a little tired. And it's damn hot. I'm done with shopping too. I'd rather rest before the full impact of work hits tomorrow. I didn't mind sitting by the window for a bit to watch the world go by. Surprisingly, I didn't bother with coffee. I just wanted a quiet lunch and a pot of hot tea.
It's sometimes ironic that I get the most rest during work trips. Sure, I'm on the internet alot because it's really fascinating. But I multi-task. I watch alot of programmes on Discovery Channel too. Quite a good deal, really. To top it off, I sleep earlier and I'm unfettered by the need to fulfill the usual commitments.
