14th OCTOBER 2017 ~ I went to Losari Beach which was situated very close to the hotel very early in the morning on the second day. This was about 6:30 a.m, and Makassar uses the same time zone as Malaysia. However, geographically it is situated on the further east of longitude so 6:30 a.m. in Makassar is already like 7:30 a.m. in Malaysia.
There were already people at the waterfront but not many so I could really enjoy the pleasant weather and the scenic view of the sea and the sky.
These places were filled with stalls, chairs and tables when I was here the evening before. It was magically transformed into a clean and clear place early in the morning.
Too bad we could not have this kind of waterfront in the city of Johor Bahru. The development has robbed the Lido Beach and the Straits of Johor from the people. I am quite sure the locals would love to have a place where they could walk, run or just sit by the sea in the morning and evening.
