Well a bit philosophical, when I look at this picture I remember one of Paulo Coelho's quote, What's the world's greatest lie?... It's this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what's happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. I believe that there are a lot of path to choose in life, many ways we could choose to ride, and we have full control of what we could do and what we could achieve. Even though that in the end we probably have the same goal. To live our life to the fullest. The real story of this picture is this boy was watching the boats which were using by people to travel between Sunda Kelapa Harbor and their house. They were conducting Sholat Eid (Eid Mubarak prayers) in Sunda Kelapa Harbor together in early morning. And the interesting fact was in Eid Mubarak, people used their best dress or at least they dressed good. There were many women using good dresses and had a bit difficulty getting into the boat, because they had to lift up their long skirt, but it's not stopping them to attend the event. And that's what we called a spirit of Hari Raya (a religious festival). @Sunda Kelapa, Jakarta, Indonesia, Eid Mubarak festive

These men work from 7.00am to 5.00pm EVERY DAY, they have an hour break at midday. They work SEVEN DAYS a week for approx $260.00 SGD per month. ($200.00 USD) Sunda Kelapa is the city’s most historical port, renowned for phinisi schooners, the traditional vessels of the Bugis people of Sulawesi, still used to deliver goods around the archipelago. The phinisi ships at Sunda Kelapa are wooden vessels around 40 meters long and 15 meters wide, with two main masts with seven sails each. The boats have diesel engines they can use alternately with the sails. They can carry up to 950 tons of cargo, which varies from cement and timber, to electronic devices and appliances. The schooners transport goods across the archipelago, but mainly to Batam island or Pontianak in Kalimantan. The journey takes up to three full days. Some may return laden with timber from Kalimantan but most return empty to Sunda Kelapa to reload.

#6 An Old Survivor Before I go to Jakarta, too many story about dark side of Jakarta people. Seems all 'bastard' from all over Indonesia come and make action to this city. You can see nothing a day jakarta free from criminal action... I'm feeling so worry hear that Visited Sunda Kelapa helps me to cure the worries. I met this boat man after the Sholat Ied finished. Maybe because he has old, he looks so calm. Far from aggressive like Kintamani's seller in Bali :) Love to met this man and make some conversation (even his hearing ability is poor and his voice like a rocker!!). Hope more visit to place in Jakarta can make me bring another experience for me. One things is a sure things that I hate to visit Mall in this city.. that's why I love Bali very much and also 'real life' like what this man shows to me Taken on Sunda Kelapa, Jakarta - Indonesia Canon 40D + Canon 28mm F1.8

HDR with 3 exposures, handheld. Sunda Kelapa, better known as Pasar Ikan (meaning fish market) is located at the mouth of the Ciliwung River. The fish catch of the day was auctioned in the early morning at the old fish market. The street leading to it was lined with shops selling all sorts of shells, dehydrated turtles, lobsters and mostly everything the seafarer might need. This 500-year-old harbor area was a vital link to markets of the outside world for the 15th century kingdom of Pajajaran. It was formerly the harbor town of Sunda Kelapa where the Portuguese traded with the Hindu Kingdom of Pajajaran in the early 16th century. Since than this port has belonged to the portuguese and Dutch. www.indonesia-tourism.com/jakarta/sunda-kelapa.html

#4 Little is just for my size Even he just a little boy, what he did just give the older people inspiration. Because praying not just need the money to reach the place, time to let few hours go just to do this activity or equipment as the praying requirement 'tools'. It needs patience and clean heart to do it. Easy to find little boy or girl that will crying of make some 'noise' during this event.

Along Sunda Kelapa Harbor you could see Phinisi ships in a line, which have unique shape and the body painted in some different colors. Phinisi ships were coming from many regions of Indonesia, carrying logs, rattan, copra and other agricultural products to Jakarta. When Phinisi goes back from Jakarta, it carries construction materials like steel and cement. You could see the hectic of loading and unloading activities that is still conducted traditionally at Sunda Kelapa.
