Happy 68th Independence Day, Indonesia!
The sun was shining so brightly and the wind didn't seem to blow. Thus, the day became so hot that it felt burning inside. However, the schools' students as well as civil servants and other participants were standing still under the open sky. Attending the flag ceremony to celebrate the Independence day.
As for me, I was just a humble audience so I found my self a little shade. It was the roof side of a little hut lied in the edge of the field. My intention was to watch the marching band performance followed by the carnival afterwards (and to capture some interesting costumes!).
Enough with the intro. The point of this post is to share some photos from the (cosplay) carnival. Photos aren't as good as usual because I resize them up to 670 px when the usual ones were about 2000 something. The benefit I get is that uploading become so fast this time! lol. So here we go!

|The carnival starts, the band leads the way|
|Raising the flag is their responsibility|

|Hey, look at here!|
|Little grooms and their brides|
|Other brides with no groom|
|Make a way, we're going to pray|
|Even Upin and Ipin come!|
|Higher level groom and bride|
|We are the well behave high-schooler!|
Next were some competitions. But the most awaited one is this:
|Palm tree with the presents|
Climbing the palm tree? Yes! but it's not ordinary palm tree. The tree has been lubricated by some vehicle-lubricating liquid. So, climbing it to reach the present on the summit is not the easy thing.
Well, that's all. Thank you.
Wait, this is the bonus photo:
