Went Crazy With “Tujuh Belasan”!September 25, 2014 10:07 am
August was always a special month for us Indonesians when the festive aura of Independence Day celebration blasts through the whole month.
This year, starting from spontaneous chit-chat ideas, we managed to organize the traditional event of various races to celebrate our Independence Day. The race theme was “Rama-rame Tujuhbelasan” or “Went Crazy on the Seventeenth”. Although it was not exactly performed on the August 17th but we all know the spirit and anticipation was equally high.
