On Thursday, September 8th, 2011, I was invited to an event held in the Ancol amusement park of Jakarta city. The event was a fashion carnaval just like those in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, but in a smaller scale.
The total of the carnaval team was 80 persons. They were invited by the Ancol amusement park of Jakarta to perform from August 25th till September 10th. Everyday, they perform 6 times daily, starting from 12.30pm till 20.00pm.
I was very pleased to take their pictures for the whole day (a lot of pretty girls there for sure! LOL). Also, I met great new friends (the crews of the JFC).
My eyes were opened to witness the commitment and the professionalism of the whole team. It is quite seldom for me to meet and see such a solid team (of 80 persons!) In my whole life. Fyi, the total of their talents was more than 300 persons.
The Jember Fashion Carnaval in the city of Jember is held annually, usually on August, because Jember (a city in Indonesia) celebrates it’s birthday on that month. This event has become an international agenda for the last 10 years. Many tourists from all over the world came to see and participate. It is now crowned as one of the 7 best fashion carnaval in the world (according to the information from Dynand Fariz, the director of the JFC).
Many thanks to the crews of the JFC, for the warmth welcome to me, especially to Dynand Fariz and the whole team members.
