Going to the mall is a typical weekend activity in Jakarta. I know a lot of people in this city are longing for an outdoor space to do some adventure time with their kids, or just having a little me-time with books and music. But on the other hand, it really is not an easy thing to find an outdoor space.
My daughter, Kira (2 y.o) is very active. She literally can not sit still for more than 5 seconds! She always has the urgency to walk, run, jump and climb. So, 3 months ago we decided to take her to Menteng Eco park, Bintaro Jaya. At first, I was hesitated because this park was definitely unlike any park I saw in..cities with big and beautiful parks. But the park was only 5 minutes drive from our house. So, I thought why not give it a try. And it turned out to be a nice park and quite spacious…and CLEAN too. So from then, an afternoon walk in the park has been Kira’s favorite activity (and mine).
Sometimes on weekend, I went to another park at Kebayoran cluster with my husband. This park was a bit far from the first one, but perfect for a morning walk.
Walking around, just breathing and enjoying the little things around you is surprisingly can really boost my mood. So, whenever I feel like I’m going to have what I called a moody phase. I go outside. I let my body move. :)
How about you? What’s your favorite outdoor activity? Do you have any plan to go the park this weekend? :)
Have a nice weekend, everybody. Xx.
