Passer Baroe is one of the oldest shopping districts in Jakarta. Although its given name means "The New Market", Pasar Baru was established in 1820. I have been going to this place since I was a little. And what can I say, both as a little girl and a fashion enthusiast, this place always gives me some kind of excitement every time I came visit. My eyes are very pleased with all kinds of fabrics at the shops. Then, there are always antics sold by some old men on the table along the streets. I love buying postcards with pictures of Jakarta and I never leave before I set foot and have a bowl of Bakmi Gang Kelinci. This place holds my childhood memory.
And there I was, last week, at the busiest street in Central Jakarta. I wasn't looking for anything in particular. It's just been a while since I wander around alone with my camera. Not that I'm a professional, but I find taking pictures, of streets and strangers, is very self-soothing.
