Ok, because yesterday I said “Oh, today you have to have a hug, today is Hug Day” jokingly to my friend and being responded with puzzled expression, I have just realized that it’s not a world-wide celebrated event, ahaha. I feel inspired somehow to make a post about this.
These random, couple-y celebrations are something I noticed back when I was in SK. Basically, before that, I only knew Valentine’s Day, which is famous already, and White Day, because it’s celebrated a lot in Japan and appears every so often in manga. They’re basically a series of days, the 14th of every months, each month having different events. Two of those days are Valentine’s day and White Day. What’s the point of these days you ask, alienating singles from all couples being lovey dovey, of course (kidding) Anyway, let’s go to the days.
August seemed to be the month of festival. There are many festivals held all around Indonesia. Two of them will be discussed in this blog article.
It is fasting month in Indonesia and summer in northern hemisphere! It is a good idea to drink various ices to break your fast or to relieve your thirst under the hot, hot sun. For the ices, rather than your usual drink, how about trying a few ices and cold drinks usually sold in Indonesia? I think similar drinks also available in your country.
It’s a quest to satisfy your hunger in the middle of the night or under the scorching sun. It’s either it’s too hot, the restaurant has already been closed, or there is no mood left for cooking. In Indonesia, no worries, these unique food seller could provide yummy food to your crying stomach, anytime, anywhere. (You’ll seriously appreciating them after you go abroad and suddenly realise that there’s no mie dokdok sellers outside to holler by while you’re hungry in the middle of the night)
