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.

kak sita lagi suka bgt ma aussie ya sampai semua gambar pasti indonesia dan australia
klo soal jdul aku kyknya krg stuju kak, cocoknya sih Bali, The Beautiful Island dibanding Zamrud Khatulistiwa

Soalnya istilah zamrud khatulistiwa sendiri lebih ke arti seluruh wilayah Indonesia/julukan negara indonesia, yg dimana kalau dilihat dari atas seperti warna zamrud karena pohon hijaunya. dari ujung sumatera dan papua dimana saat itu orang belanda sedang naik pesawat dan terpana sama keindahan warna hijau seperti zamrud yg dia lihat dari atas.

oke deh, hahaha soalnya walo blum pernah ke bali aku gak ada niat ke sana. bapak blg bali dah brubah total, jd bnyk bangunan n ramai abis. bapak lebih suka lombok yg masih bersih dan sepi n lebih bagus mnurutnya,

btw info baru nih! diantara turis asing orang jerman itu yg paling bnyk habisin uang slama mreka di bali n paling berkelas diantara smua turis asing. walo gt mreka baik n suka kasih tips banyak ke supir taksi *pengalaman supir taksi yg rata" pnumpangnya org asing* klo tempat favorit itu bali, sumatra, sulut n lombok.
sama mreka itu suka bgt ma rendang ma pisang kepok lampung --> rendang pas itu ada lomba makanan gt, wakil indonesia rendang n dlm beberapa menit rendangnya langsung habis.

di bukit tinggi, rumah bung hatta ada bunga putri salju di depan rumahnya yg dari belanda. klo turis belanda itu lebih suka ke bukit tinggi, surabaya, malang, maluku n ambon deh, soalnya sepi jg krn bali dah ramai abis. sama mreka itu liburan bisa habisin waktu dua minggu

turis perancis lebih suka ke raja ampat n wakatobi.

In among Pairi daiza gardens there's Indonesian garden by the name "The Kingdom of Ganesha". If you want to see Indonesian botanical gardens, architecture and culture, please visit them. The Indonesian Embassy in Belgium often held many cultural events there ^^

Bali, kalo tak salah, termasuk 3 besar tempat yg mau dikunjungi orang utk berseluncur. Kata orang turis, ombaknya pas utk surfing.

Komik strip ini indah sekali~ Waaah saya mau keliling Bali saat Nyepi~ Sayangnya pasti enggak boleh sama pecalang sekitarnya :iconpapcryplz: Pasti menarik banget lihat Bali sepi kayak kota mati #plak

Mbak Dino tahu enggak tradisi Omed-omedan (ciuman massal) after Nyepi Day? Kata tour guide (tahun lalu alhamdulillah ke Bali) turis asing kalau beruntung (?) entar ditarik acak sama orang situ terus digendong, ikut omed-omedan. Banyak yang kena katanya, sampai nangis-nangis.

lumayan tuh buat next chapter antara AussiexNesia :iconimsopervyplz: #shot
