Euh, the title reminds of that film where alien attacks and we succeed to defeat it with bunch of military air forces, hacker, and Windows 95. Yes, totally amazing. Anyway, what I mean is Indonesia’s Independence Day which we yearly celebrate, 17th August, without barbeque, fireworks, and celebrity performances. No Beyonce (whaatttttttttt?!!!?)
Buuuuuuuttttttttt we had old traditional games and super-tropical weather to keep us entertained before formal flag ceremony tomorrow, including volleyball (all the players have to wear ‘daster’ -in fashion world means long-nightgown-women-use-to-bed-when-they-have-no-one-on-it), emoticon (players trying to drop cornflakes from their faces, which are attached with chocolate. Super hard!) And, of course, the infamous Tug of War.
I didn’t participate this year. But, hell, I still had a great time selling cold drinks and cheering from behind (and sneaking out to mall)(too hot, man. Too hot.)
Yeay for Indonesia!
