Well, a week has already passed since I started writing this post so before more time slips away, let me get back to it because…. Woooooooah…. this was just the perfect way to spend a Sunday… the way I have dreamed about for years… the way I never thought was possible in Jakarta!
The things I really miss the most while living here are clean open spaces, trees, being able to enjoy the outdoors… and grass… yes….GRASS!. Real grass you can stand on and feel between your toes, grass for kids to roll around in and play on… grass to have adventures on and feel the earth beneath. So often we are stuck indoors, in malls, at home.. wherever there is air conditioning to escape the heat.. and it quickly gives me the feeling of cabin fever and I need to escape and be outside. So this event was amazing all round. It was the first trial run and held in Como Park in Kemang which was absolutely gorgeous. There were beanbags, rugs on the ground, funky furniture to chill out in and gorgeous floral table arrangements everywhere. The music was perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon, sipping on wine, checking out the bazaar, surrounded by delicious healthy food and laughing.. and watching the kids play outdoors. It was pet friendly so there were dogs of all shapes and sizes also adding to the fun atmosphere.
Although we missed the morning session of Charity Yoga and Flower crown making, Samudra had fun making pizza to cook in the little brick community oven. There were lots of activities to keep the kids occupied, like painting bricks, decorating cupcakes and more. It was only due to the dark clouds that appeared late in the afternoon that we decided it would be best to leave with the kids. This meant that we missed Mikey Moran’s DJ set which I was really looking forward to… but I will beg if I have to for them to do this again as it was so much fun…. Of course those that created Gojek would be behind yet another brilliant idea that we can’t live in Jakarta without! Next time I’ll suggest some moonlight cinema on the grass also if we can find a way to keep the evening mozzies away.
Keep your eyes and ears open for any future events. WE.LOVED.IT!!!!!! @greenloveafair.jkt
