Finally, after a long time, I come back writing something worth reading again. Yes I know, my recent entry is just about my selfish rants and anything not-important-to-read.
I got a lot reasons why I *ehm* stop *ehm* writing, it’s was just mainstream excuse. I got plenty much task in college,
which I was lazy to do of course XD
Okay, let’s cut the boring intro. This time I want to share you one of the biggest event on my region, Aceh. It’s PKA6! (Pekan Kebudayaan Aceh) – 6th Aceh Culture Week, the event that only held once in 4-5 years. The 6th PKA began since 20 Sept and will be close on 29 Sept 2013, located in Lamprit, Banda Aceh.
for you who haven’t got there, don’t miss the chance!
As I live not so far from the PKA area, I come there almost every day! Hehe. Well, I came there by invitation of different company, so it’s never boring :D
Okay, now I’d show you some picture I took on my 2nd time exploring PKA. Enjoy!

~* Regency *~
|Great Aceh Culture House|
The visitors allow to enter the house. We may go in to see interior and traditional properties. Each regency has its own thew. The main fair is about the district's bridal bed and wedding. But there's also some other goods that original from its district.
"Songket" is a kind of fabric which originally apply on custom clothing that usually wear to go on ceremony and wear as wedding dress nowadays.
|Some other crafts|
Nail polish (Acehnese henna)
In Aceh culture, henna applied on bride consecutively since three days before the wedding ceremony. The painter is volunteer from neighborhood who has good skill in drawing. It apply on both hands (palms, back of the hand), foots and nails. The drawing theme is flowers, which mostly is flower vine.
But of course, not only bride who has the right to apply henna, everybody may do. Acehnese girls love to apply henna on their skin.
|we decided to apply some since the cost was FREE XD|
|we must wait until it's dry and clean the henna. the time span long depends on weather an the room temperature. that day it was about one hour, since the sun was quite bright.|
This is the result...
