Last week, the Indonesian embassy held its annual tourism promotion exhibition for the third consecutive year in Singapore. This year event was held at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza in Orchard Road. It was held from 18 – 19 July 2009.
I decided to take a look what they’ve got to offer. There were arts performances from Sumatra and Java. I did not manage to visit the exhibition in the morning, rumour said that there were Papuans wearing ‘koteka’ or penis gourd, traditional Sulawesi and Kalimantan clothes. Part of Indonesia that I’ve been looking forward to visit is Eastern Indonesia. There was also a couple wearing Bali traditional clothes.
Well, you can visit Kaskuser’s report on Enchanting Indonesia here.
This is my own report.
A replica of Borobudur temple, the largest Buddhist temple in the world. I went to Borobudur about seven years ago and I was quite shock at that time to know that in 1962 (if I’m not mistaken), a mad man bombed the temple.
A Garuda Indonesia’s Boeing 737-800NG plane diecast. Registered as PK-GEE, the real plane you can find the photos on Airliners.net.
All the girls come together, I know this may be useless or rrelevant information but two of the models are smokers. There were two male models, they have a ‘bule’-looking. ‘Bule’ is the Indonesian term for Caucasian.
This is the Javanese culture in miniature. Almost half of Indonesians are Javanese, I am one of them. But believe me, I almost know nothing about my cultures. I know Balinese culture better, probably because I was born in Bali.
That’s the end of Part 1. Part 2 is coming up as soon as possible.
