No kids left: Teenagers participate in a flash mob at the iconic landmark Hotel Indonesia traffic circle in Central Jakarta on Sunday morning. (JP/Wendra Ajistyatama) Sixteen-year-old Tania awoke at 05:30 a.m. on Sunday, applied a little make up to her face and put on a white t-shirt, black hotpants and sunglasses. The second grade Ricci Catholic High School student was preparing to join about 150 other Ricci students who were about to march toward the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle on Jl. Thamrin, Central Jakarta.
There, the students were greeted with swarms of people donning various attire, mostly sporty outfits such as caps, bright colored shirts, and colorful sport shoes.
Around 8:15 a.m, the introduction of the super viral song “Gangnam Style”, made popular by South Korean rapper PSY, was blasting from a set of speakers in front of Plaza Indonesia shopping mall.
