Third year coming to the #Pindhapata event in #Jakarta old town area. A quick summary, it’s an activity where Buddhist #monk walks in the #street and collect alms. But this one, held before the Vesak celebration, is to gather donation to be distributed to other peoples in need, such as disaster reliefs.
With so many peoples coming, there are lots of staffs, and officers from the police and military (who help providing trucks to carry the donations).
Yes, a lot of the donation is Indonesian's second staple food after rice, instant noodle. But well, beggars can't be choosy. Besides, it's almost imperishable and cheaper than canned food.
