Last week, me and my colleagues in MoFA celebrated Kartini Day. Kartini was an amazing woman who succeed to struggle and give good example for Indonesian women during colonization era. In order to honor her, we wore Indonesian traditional dress, kebaya.
anyway, I didn’t use my own kebaya. Actually i have one, but it’s not shiny enough 😀 fortunately one of my friend, Ima, brought her kebaya collection, and when i did fit and proper test, i found one pretty peach kebaya.
Wearing kebaya was so much fun. It made you beautiful instantly. But, behind the beauty of kebaya, we did need to struggle. We woke up at 5am and did the hair-do, put some make-up on. And since we wore long skirt, we could barely move our legs freely. Anyway, it’s all paid off. We all look really beautiful and stunning. Sooo, do you have any traditional costume? What’s the story behind it? Please let me know. XOXO
