About a week ago, T - our Fashion Stylist / Director - paid a visit to a Batik Exhibition and Workshop in Indonesia. She went to the exhibition to earn more knowledge about Indonesian batik (which is apparently very broad). From her: "It was a pleasure meeting Mr. Rusydi a Madurese batik artisan and Mrs. Indra who was my lecturer back in uni who is now aside of teaching she is also an encourager at Mbatikyuuk - an Indonesian independent organisation which purpose is to spread the words about Indonesian batik."
T also went to a batik workshop which was held by Mbatikyuuk. She tried to draw her own batik pattern and wanted to make an actual batik material ready to use to create a garment. But unfortunately, she was not able to finish the process because of her tight schedules... Oh well! From her: "My magic touch didn't work! It was very difficult to put the wax on the fabric. And I would need to draw on both sides of the fabric. It surely is very intricate and time-consuming. Guess for now I better off designing the ready materials."
It was a long flight, but I'm finally here now at the best spot in town called "MY HOME". Image: Kemang Pratama Residence, Bekasi.
So, here I am, and missing Australia already. Why? Well, I wouldn't say I was that disappointed because I knew it was coming; my internet connection has been very slow and breaking down which is why I have not been able to do my work properly. This is my first blogpost since I had reached here 5 days ago.
That being said, I have had everything figured out and my schedules are in place, hopefully everything goes smoothly until when I will have to go back! SO EXCITED! *fingers crossed* xx
Travelling much? You'd know what I mean by "2 hours of boredom". Oh well that's alright I guess, I'm still hanging on comfortably in my heels and that's what's important right? And the boredom kinda pumping my blogger-blood up. Posting from my mobile; find a few snapshots from the bore-ding room (also a couple shots from when I was about to step out of the house - and when I was on my way)
See you in Jakarta now!
Got 3 heavy hand-carry! It's my lucky day that they let me through!
My nail comes in the way? It's ok I like it, it's plum-ish. x
