Spending more than two weeks of my working days from mid-August to early September at Gelora Bung Karno area for covering the 18th Asian Games, I realized the Aquatic Stadium is currently my favorite spot in Jakarta. I can't count how many times I visited this Aquatic Stadium after I finished my work during the Games. . It was not about my pride to my country for being a good host of this second largest multi-sport event after the Olympic Games and not about how I amazed by this newly revamped venue. I simply loved to see the water at Aquatic Stadium and how the athletes can befriend with it-especially at the 10 m platform diving-and became the champions. . I remember one month before Asian Games began, Mother asked me to try swimming at this new stadium. We did not make it, as the stadium has been closed for public. After that, just one week before the Games ended, I bought her two tickets to see the artistic swimming, as I knew she would love to see the game. But again, I failed to accompany her to see it since I was assigned to another venue outside GBK. . Now, I am still planning to take Mother to swim at this Aquatic Stadium. To feel swimming like the champions because why not. . #IndohoyShraya @indohoy @shraya_kulture
Behind your favorite selfie spot, maybe some kids are also waiting for their favorite playground that occupied. And finally move to another spot. . . #belitung #trip #travel #explorebelitung #explorebabel #letsgosomewhere #passionpassport #wanderlust #wanderfolk #stayandwander #folkscenery #folkindonesia #livefolkindonesia #livefolk #liveauthentic #wonderfulindonesia #getaway #escape #createscenery #moodygrams #instatravel #travelgram #words #darlingescapes #exploremore #sonya6000 #sonyforher #beach #islandlife
