So I went to the Riverfest yesterday.
FIREWORKS ARE THE MOST AMAZING THING TO HAPPEN TO MANKIND.
I mean, we do have fireworks back home home, but not of that magnitude. And the jets with the fire shooting out of the end!!!!!!! It was an endless show of amazing fireworks for half an hour with appropriately themed music. And when the yellow fireworks were on, IT LOOKED LIKE GOLD AND GLITTER IN THE SKY. How amayyyyzing is that bitches???
Yes, I realize that all y’all have your Fourth of July and stuff, but I have never seen anything like this before. Forgive my over excitedness.
I think variations in culture are so interesting. How one person, when experiencing a different environment, can inspire so many to take a look around to see what’s already there, but never noticed. Also, nadhira, where do you live?
I’m originally from Jakarta, Indonesia, but I’m currently studying in Brisbane, Australia. Culture shock, anyone?
But seriously, it’s not really that bad. It’s just that Jakarta is so far away from things like picnics, parks, and fireworks. I mean, if we did have a park, it would be so littered with trash and beggars and such that no one would go there. Besides everyone (including myself) is just way too busy walking around inside airconditioned malls. I never even thought that a fireworks display could be such a big deal. I would never have experienced anything like that back home.
