Yesterday as a celebration on upcoming Indonesian Independece Day we had themed costumes and used for whole work time. My area got fishermen costumes, and since there’re mostly women we were stuck with old grandma’s kebaya and sarung. I used beach pareo because I thought it’d fit for my Balinese trait. Some commented it right away when they saw my costume, throwing jokes here and there. Still it was a fun day you wouldn’t see everyday. Especially when Ladies formal area and men’s wear appeared with their Dutch ladies-themed costumes, it felt like we’re having a parade here while working. lol.
Honestly it would look real enough if we used some properties like fish pole or net, but all of us were so lazy to search anything since the costume itself was difficult to find. Mine was borrowed from one of workmates who luckily still had some spares to use. No button in the kebaya made me use pins as subtitute. And We’re not that enthusiasted in the morning until people from second shift who got Dutch-ladies theme came with their extravagant costumes. Very beautiful and classy but I didn’t have the luck of taking pictures since we’re not allowed to bring any cellphone inside our workplace. Whoever came to all Chandra Dept. Store Lampung that day must have seen our costume parade, right? Lol.
If we’re having this again next year I’d make sure to make it hillarious as possible, if I could still be there of course. :p
