The fish market is a part of the
seafood restaurant in the Ancol Park (Jakarta, Indonesia).I only took a few shots there. Most of offered
seafood is still alive. I saw a variety of fish, shrimps, shellfish, squids, and
crabs. Do you like seafood dishes?

special woman in your life.
Never Forget Your Existence
When people have
fights with their spouses or partners, it is usually a hard time to come up
with a viable solution, which does not harm anyone. You can easily share this
experience with your mom or your close friend, who will obviously give you the
best advice over this super sensitive issue.Although people usually suggest that these are personal preferences and
not to share this with others, but the case is different if you have been
fighting this issue with longs and want to share your feelings with someone you
trust! Do not forget that you exist as an individual and yes, your life has a
lot to do with how you feel and how well you tackle the issues prevailing!
Keep Some Power to Yourself As Well
grannies always suggest that “Never allow a man to hurt you or give him the
power to make you cry”. This is a mantra for a successful life for you as a
woman.Be responsible for all your deeds
and always try your best to maintain your self respect.
Be Happy & Make Everyone Happier
If you are happy,
everyone related to you will be happy. My grandmother has always quoted this
line, and the principle does wonders for the relationships!
The moms always
suggest being the most important person in your partner’s life. Being indispensable
is very important, and always tries to keep each aspect of your life in mind.
Seek Help from Those Who Are Close To You
At certain point of time, you need
someone who understands your situation and acts as a mirror to show you the
reality of the life without hurting you. Having clarity about the relationship
is very important, and someone who doesn’t know you absolutely well can never
bring this about. Expect this only from your childhood friend, your mother or
your grandmother. You will be amazed to see how well they understand your
feelings and your position, so it is high time you should dump a counselor, and
find solace in the company of your most loved woman! Trust me, it works!
