From Kebaya to Kilt

Yes, the day had finally come… The graduation day, the final wrap of our high school life. We are glad that none of  us needed to be neglected, we are all have been graduated by now. One of the great things we got to do was wearing our traditional clothing and it was kebaya. Even though the ‘bustie’ (the thing that looks like a tight tube we wear to prevent our stomachs from peeping out) crushed my ribs and gave a hard time for half of the day, I still proud to wear it and for our own comfort, we don’t always have to wear ‘bustie’ when we wear kebaya, but ‘bustie’ is also a good stuff, because it helps us to always sit up straight, it is actually good for our backbone. Kebaya have more then one type, but the one we were wearing in the picture is called ‘brokat’, there’s one too called ‘encim’… So the day went by and I had to leave as fast as I could, because me and my dad had planned to go to the Jakarta Highland Gathering 2011 afterwards, so I went home, cleaned up myself, putted on my own costume for the occasion and rushed to Karawaci.

As I got there, most of the great shows had through, so i just got a glimpse of it, but it was still fun though. To be honest, I really love kilts, it’s so cool and Scottish, I have planned to buy it for next year, so I can be more absorb in the atmosphere.  I went to the event the year before, I went for it this year and absolutely will come next year…. What a day, what a day, it was so tiring and exciting, my day was filled with great cultures indeed.
