So… Finally, on November 2, 2014, last Sunday, the Jakarta Clean Project is execute successfully in Kota Tua Jakarta. The project coordinated by group of friends, that called themselves as Helping (for more info about this group, check: https://www.facebook.com/peduli.sosial).
At the beginning, they estimated that the volunteer is around 50 persons but turn out that the volunteer come up to around 120 peoples. And, i was very grateful that i am one of them. At least, we can contribute something to Jakarta. To make Jakarta cleaner and beautiful.
Ok. So we are told to gather in Kota Tua on 06:00 AM. But then…. due to lack of sleep, i woke up late. I woke around 5AM and then hurry go there (after showering of course). I arrived there, using Ojek, around 5:45 if i’m not mistaken. You know what i found there? I found that Kota Tua is a garbage place. Many garbage there. I know that on Saturday, there is an event there, but never expected to see so many. Don’t believe me? See these video i took using my iphone, i used the slo-mo.
Then after gathered all, we are divided into 5 groups, which in charge for individual area. I don’t have the mapping on the group area but i was in group A, charged for the area beside the Batavia Cafe, direct to the Busway stop behind Kota Tua, then circled back to the food area beside the Virgin’s record if i’m not mistaken. Quite large area.
The problem cleaning up this Kota Tua is that, around 8 AM, most of the visitors come and also the seller. They preparing themselves to sold the food, drink, smoke, etc. So we were asked to be able finish it before those seller open. And the result? Myself is quite happy with the result from all groups. As you can see in these video from the Helping.

And afterwards, we are relaxing with a refreshment from Starbucks, one of the sponsor. Free Coffee and Doughnut… hahaha. After, the photo session as always (in any event). For me? I’m still tired so not joining the photo session. Sitting at the back.
Around 10AM, we all dismissed. For me? I was still have a very long day coz i have to attend a wedding party in Citereup, Bogor (which is actually near my house in Cibubur) – 2,5 hours on Ojek to Citereup.
