There was an event called Indonesian Cultural Night on campus last Saturday night. This event was held by PERMIAS at Oregon State University! :) It is obvious that the event was about Indonesian cultures, and this year they chose Sumatra Island as the theme. Even though I am a very passive one, I was zuper excited (hey, I am specifically from Sumatra)! In spite of being passive, I was actually volunteering to be a part of the documentation team, which ended up with me getting blisters and in desperate need of foot massage (silly me wearing heels for the first time in the last 6 months). Ok moving on to the event: there were a lot of creative and outstanding performances (see: pictures above). I personally admire Saman Dance (dance of thousand hands, from Aceh) the most. Nevertheless, everyone was doing awesome jobs!
Clearly, I miss everything about my hometown in Indonesia. I miss my family, my friends, and of course the food! :<
