Princess in Asia Pacific
Prince William and his wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, have visited Queensland, Australian last week. Spending two hours in Brisbane, a city we have being to for many times when we were in Sydney.
Queensland is such a nice place for holidays. Over the years, we have driven around many places in the Gold Coast, the Sunshine coast and Queensland in general. We can’t wait to go back and enjoy the stunning sea and the luscious hinterland. It is unlike anywhere else in the world. It is Paradise for us, and a really nice place to be.
Life down under is where life begins for us.
Back to our topic, according to media, Prince William and Princess Cat both wore Batiks on an evening reception in the Solomon Islands on this Asia Pacific tour.
Batik is an unique Indonesia cloth and is very popular in Indonesia and other parts of South East Asia.
Ever since we are in Jakarta, we have seen batiks everywhere. They are part of Indonesia’s daily life.
In Sydney, we have casual Fridays where everyone gets to dress in non business clothes. Here in Jakarta, it is Batik Friday. Many office workers wear Batik clothes to work that day.
The Lust Look
