31 Days in Jakarta Day 12
Ok, this is a long title. But are you curious to know what Jakarta’s construction workers do while building a mansion like this:
Jakarta’s mansion can be huge. It is not our common 3 bedroom houses in Sydney. It sure takes forever to build, right?
The other day, Mrs D and Miss D took a morning walk. They walked inside a Golf Course Residence. The road there was leafy, wide and very quiet. A beautiful place. Many expats took morning walks there.
Then Miss D noticed a rooster, a happy, shiny, beautiful rooster.
Mrs D was curious, what was the rooster doing in a place like this? Was it someone’s pet?
Turned out the rooster was crossing the road.
The rooster crossed the road, then there, another rooster appeared.
There were actually many more roasters, hens, and chicks at this side of the road. They all started scurrying away because Miss D was now getting excited and started to follow them.
They arrived at this door, and one by one, the chicks went inside, the hens went inside…
Finally, the proud rooster went inside.
We had a look around, and found that this was a building site for a new mansion. It was all fenced up, so we cannot see much of the building itself. But obviously, someone was raising these chickens while building the mansion.
Not a bad idea, right?
We were really curious, and checked around and then we saw the place next to the building where the garden or pool supposed to be. We saw lots of corns, grew tall and proud. Aha, they were not only raise chickens, they were also planting plants. Maybe veggies, too? Self sustained with eggs, chicken meat, food and veggie. How green was that?! Who said Jakarta only got pollution, people here can be creative, too!
We stared at that empty door where the chickens went in. There were some good, hard working people living inside for sure. Next time, if we build our house in Sydney, we might raise some chickens as well? What do you think?
