Sempur field is a famous field in my city (Bogor, West Java, Indonesia). As a free public place, many people use it everyday, especially for playing football, basket, volley, running around the field and doing wall climbing.
But on Sunday morning, this field changes into a temporary market, it’s for about four hours. You can see lots of sellers there. If you’re interested to buy some stuff there, you can be confused as there are lots of things to sale: from toys, clothes, foods, accessories, underwear, fruits, animals, hand phone accessories, kitchen and home equipment, to motorbikes, television, other electronic equipment, and many more!
Last Sunday, I and my husband visited Sempur field to have chicken porridge for breakfast. It’s already 9.00 am in the morning, several sellers have packed their stuff; but many other sellers still display it. While we were eating our breakfast, suddenly we heard and saw some men were chasing someone and yelling,” Pickpocket…pickpocket!”
It turned out that a while before, a stupid man (a pickpocket) has taken a bag that belongs to one member of a basketball team. Poor man. It’s not hard to chase and seize the thief. It’s really a stupid decision to do a criminal thing in a place that full of people like that. I was afraid to see and take pictures, my husband said that the thief was being hit by several people and then brought to the police office nearby.
I also did a little shopping. I bought two legging pants, as the price is very cheap! Before going home, we saw for a while children that were doing taekwondo training.
