This morning I woke up earlier than usual and decided to go to Sudirman-SCBD area for a morning run. I arrived around 6ish and the weather was nice, it was cloudy with a light breeze.
I started my run from across FX mall. At that time, there were not that many people so I could still run comfortably. About half an hour later, I reached Sudirman station. That’s where I saw a swarm of people going towards Bundaran HI area. Uh-oh, what’s happening? I thought.
I stopped running and started to walk. It was a good decision, because I started to feel tired anyway. Then I heard a noise and stopped my playlist. It looked like there was a mini stage with 3 instructors and people dancing in front of it. Without hesitation, I decided to join the crowd and danced to the last 2 songs. It was a pop-up public zumba/aerobic/dance class. So much fun! People from all ages were seen dancing enthusiastically, yours truly included 🙂
Then I continued my walk. To be very honest with you, I was quite overwhelmed being in the crowd, the feeling was indescribable! I felt a positive energy, everybody was doing their own thing but at the same time was united. I guess that was being a true Jakartan is about. We’re all different but in the end united by our love/hate relationship with this city.
After awhile, I decided to head back to FX area. Overall, I had a good 5K run this morning, plus some people watching and impromptu zumba haha. To close off this post, I’m going to share some pictures I took during my walk.
Have a good week ahead! x
