At 7 PM, I was in front of Ciputat Market’s TPS (Tempat Pembuangan Sampah – Landfill Site) with Iriel, Umam and Imam, my fellow members of Djuanda Community. I’d been bored with the atmosphere of Djuanda office, which was why I decided to join these three friends of mine. The plan was, they wanted to go photo hunting of the traffic jam that usually happened around Ciputat Market. Umam decided to take the angle of the traffic jam from the front of Ciputat Market’s TPS. When we arrived there we didn’t find the traffic jam at all. The traffic flow along the Ir. H. Djuanda Street was smooth. There was no significant accumulation of vehicles.
“You are late, maybe, Mam?” I said to Umam.
“No! Yesterday I saw that the traffic jam was around this time. Maybe it hasn’t started yet. Let’s wait,” answered Umam with confidence.
