Want to hold a piece of Jakarta's past? Come to Jalan Surabaya (Surabaya Street). Located in Menteng, the street offers various stuffs, such as artifacts, vinyl records, old cameras and bags. The street consists of several long rows of stalls, separated by a dirty canal.
I've been going to the street several times. But it was during last week's staycation that I got the chance to take photographs of the street. There are so many stuffs you can find on the street. Below are just some of my favorites...
Welcome to Jalan Surabaya. These are loro blonyo (inseparable couple), Javanese traditional statue symbolizing fertility and harmony

Have an energizing Monday!
