We are now right in the middle of Ramadan, and in a few more days lebaran comes along. Savor this moment for it will end as soon as it starts. In the meantime, check out the new up and coming trends in the city of Jakarta.
Kalimantan, Indonesia’s New Capital City
Indonesia’s new capital city has been a hot topic for the past few weeks. After deliberating between Central Kalimantan, East Kalimantan and South Kalimantan, the choice has fallen to Gunung Mas which is an area in Central Kalimantan.
Historically, this area has been an area where locals have traditionally taken valuable natural resources such as gold, copper, silver and more. Currently there are still some remnants of gold in their rivers although it’s not as much as it was before. Rather, it’s an empty vast piece of land that has not been widely occupied. Makes a perfect place, wouldn’t it?
This area was deemed much more suitable to be a capital city due to a number of reasons. First, the area is vast and mostly unoccupied. This would mean that it’s a safe area in which the new capital city can reside in. Second would be the unlikelihood of natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods. Third and most important of all, “I am here just to look for one thing-the feeling. Without the feeling and vision of the city, all the calculation will be easier”, Jokowi was reported to say.
Gunung Mas it is!
The Latest Fitness Trend of ‘Plogging’
Sustainability has been the buzzword for the past few years. Now, exercise has been combined with being environmentally friendly. The word ‘plogging’ comes from the word ‘jogging’ and ‘plocka upp’ which means ‘to take’ in Swedish. Combine your love of exercise while taking care of the environment at the same time.
Jakarta’s litter problem has long been a long standing problem which has caused pollution and floods. Luckily plogging can tackle this epidemic – not only will be you be able to help Jakarta’s environment but you will also be able to burn more calories in the process. Compared to normal jogging, plogging burns about 15-30 per cent more because it involves more movements such as bending and turning the body.
