Australia x Indonesia short comic taking place in the modern day. As well as a promotion for Indonesia tourism industry. :iconheplz:

Happy Saka New Year to all Indonesian Hindus! (^^)/ And good luck for the Nyepi~

I heard many Indonesians in Belgium have Ogoh-Ogoh parade in Pairi Daiza, Indonesia themed Kingdom of Ganesha Park, Belgium. :iconhappynesiaplz:
And we won again in the Dutch Floriade Expo in 2012.
Indomie is still favorite fried noddles in many Africa nations, especially Nigeria. Love you so much Nigeria <3

Great work fellow Indonesians, keep promoting Indonesians cultures, botanical gardens, food and Indonesian brands :D
And we love you Australia for promoting Indonesian cultures and visiting Indonesia every year ^^
There's Indonesia Garden at Charles Darwin University, Australia and there has been many performances of Indonesian cultures there.
Love it most when we collaborate with the Yolngu's Yothu Yindi and the Eyes of Marege in Sydney Opera House. :D


=> Nyepi [link]

Nyepi is a Balinese "Day of Silence" that is commemorated every Isaawarsa (Saka new year) according to the Balinese calendar (in 2012, it fell on March 23rd). It is a Hindu celebration mainly celebrated in Bali, Indonesia. Nyepi, a Government holiday in Indonesia, is a day of silence, fasting and meditation for the Balinese. The day following Nyepi is also celebrated as New year.[1][2]

Observed from 6 a.m. until 6 a.m. the next morning, Nyepi is a day reserved for self-reflection and as such, anything that might interfere with that purpose is restricted. The main restrictions are: no lighting fires (and lights must be kept low); no working; no entertainment or pleasure; no traveling; and for some, no talking or eating at all. The effect of these prohibitions is that Bali’s usually bustling streets and roads are empty, there is little or no noise from TVs and radios, and few signs of activity are seen even inside homes. The only people to be seen outdoors are the Pecalang, traditional security men who patrol the streets to ensure the prohibitions are being followed.

Although Nyepi is primarily a Hindu holiday, non-Hindu residents of Bali observe the day of silence as well, out of respect for their fellow citizens. Even tourists are not exempt; although free to do as they wish inside their hotels, no one is allowed onto the beaches or streets, and the only airport in Bali remains closed for the entire day. The only exceptions granted are for emergency vehicles carrying those with life-threatening conditions and women about to give birth.

On the day after Nyepi, known as Ngembak Geni, social activity picks up again quickly, as families and friends gather to ask forgiveness from one another, and to perform certain religious rituals together.
