Independence Day

Years ago, Indonesians finally unite themselves to declare their independence from three and a half century (that means 350 years) plus 3 years of slavery from the Dutch and Japanese. Whoah, that's a really long time, isn't it? Today, We, Indonesian celebrate our independence after 66 years. But in my honest opinion, the way that Indonesians united right now is not the same as the way Indonesians 66 years ago, when they're fighting to their last drop of blood for freedom and justice. Nowadays, there are so many things going on here where justice is not justice anymore. People who are strong, getting stronger with their money, and people who are week, getting weaker each day. So many disappointing things happened in this holy month too. I don't know what  things are going to come in the next years, but I hope Indonesia can be free from corruptors, bad people, terrorists, and etc.

To celebrate this day, I'm gonna share a picture of me in traditional Bali dance costume. I wore this costume on Sunday to celebrate Indonesia's Independence Day by dancing at my church :D There were 5 of us who wore 5 different traditional costume, I chose Bali because Bali's traditional costume is my favorite. I love all the headpieces, flowers, the color combinations between gold, orange, white, pink, and red. I think it would look better without the pink t-shirt to cover most of my skin, but it would be inappropriate to wear something too "open" at church, won't it? So how do I look? Kekeke.. Enjoy the rest of the week people :)

  7. Very pretty ! Balinese dancing is hard, the emotion and our gesture is the point of the dancing. You must be great at it :)
