It was nearing the end of July. Bel and I decided to go on a short vacation in Yogyakarta (or Jogja).
Yogyakarta is a well-known tourist spot in Indonesia. It is a small, simple town. Less traffic jam as compared to Jakarta. It gets a little cool in the morning or night. And, everyone we met was friendly! Still, I wish I could speak Bahasa…
On one of the days, we took a Becak, a common rickshaw transport in Yogyakarta to a Batik factory. Candra was one of the staff there so she brought us in after we paid our fees. I was afraid I would screw up the traditional art but it turned out to be fun. In fact, I enjoyed coming up with new designs. Elephant motif, hehe! We even learned about the whole process of Batik making. I heard they have a 5-day course too.
Those are lovely, you did great!
