I walked down a street in Jakarta that wasn't very crowded. On the left side of the street was a waterway and on the right side was a row of shops. It's not a store, but a town factory. However, it was not open that day. The shutters were down on all of them, so there was no sign of local people. This street, which seems to be crowded on weekdays, was deserted on Sunday.
When I walked along the road alone, some lovely blue cars were parked there. They were three-wheeled taxis. It was a deserted street, so they probably weren't waiting for customers. They must be taking a break there.
Three-wheeled taxis are common in Southeast Asia and South Asia. I see them running in many countries, but it's interesting that they are called differently in different countries. It is called an auto rickshaw in India, a CNG in Bangladesh, a three-wheeler in Sri Lanka, a tuk-tuk in Thailand, and here in Indonesia it is called a bajaj.
By the way, Bajaj is an Indian car manufacturer. Its brand name has become a generic noun for three-wheeled taxis in this country. It's probably similar to how we used to call all portable audio players the Walkman.
