Obviously, we went to the wrong shopping mall last week. To do Jakarta justice, this week we will show you the real Christmas celebration in our beloved city Jakarta.
Not only will we show you all the Santa Claus in Jakarta, we will also show you some ‘heavenly beauty’, just to make up the misunderstanding of our part from last week’s Hello Kitty roadshow.
To start with, we will show you the grandest Santa Claus and sleigh we have ever seen in a shopping mall:
Have a look from the back. Santa is flying in the sky with silver reindeers. Mind you this shopping mall is 6 floors tall. Look at those tiny people on the ground floor.
This Santa Claus and silver reindeers sleigh is at least 5 meters long. It is huge, built with great efforts and is magnificent indeed. We have never seen anything like this in a shopping mall back in Sydney. Have you seen anything like this in your city? We would like to hear.
Jakarta not only has the grandest Santa Sleigh, we also have white Christmas snowy castles.
Plus Christmas gift shop. Snowman, Christmas trees, baubles, candy canes, ornaments. You name it, we have it right here. With a coconut tree standing by. 😀
Christmas in Sogo, a fancy department store.
Now that we have proven that we do have Santa Claus in Jakarta. We will start our real topic for today. How about some more Heavenly Beauty? And a blue one would be nice?
This is called Hijab. It is a everyday wear for Muslin women and is a fashion icon in its own right.
Back in Sydney, girls are interested in topics such as ‘How to wear scarves in a hundred ways’ in winter time. In Jakarta, we have ‘How to wear a Hijab in 100 ways’, all year round. As a matter of fact, we have a Hijaber community here just to do that.
Do you have a scarf community in your city? Maybe we should start our very own right now.
Want to see some real life hijaber in action? Jakarta has plenty.
A single lady entering the shopping mall. Love the beige colour she is wearing. Very on the trend, slim, modern and beautiful. Wait, did we just say ‘modern’? Actually, it does have a very modern feeling to it, if you have seen it yourself in person.
Another young lady. This time in grey outfit and matching hijab. The girls in Jakarta sure knows their colours.
A mum buying a toy for her little boy. And that’s the aunt in the far right corner wearing a white hijab. Young and pretty. The best age.
Obviously, older women wear hijab more often. This couple looks lovely. Great colour match. How long have they been married?
Here comes the true ladies of Jakarta. Middle aged, content with life’s offer and always, always dress in nice clothings. Hijab or not, our ladies in Jakarta always look presentable. BTW, they carry authentic branded bags, not fake / factory outlet stuff, alright?
How about pink? No pink in this one?
OK, to end today’s show, we will show you a true Arch wedding and our darling beauty girl – our very own pink Barbie. Side by side, these women can conquer the world.
