The good thing about having many cultures as national identity is I can always dress-up, trying one costume to another. Heheee. And for today's post, I wear "Kebaya". Raden Adjeng Kartini (R.A Kartini), one of the well known Indonesia female hero, used to wear Kebaya all the time; and of course every women from the past used Kebaya as daily clothes (but of course, the simple one). And every year in Indonesia, people celebrate R.A Kartini's birthday as emancipation day, by wearing Kebaya to school, work, etc.

But no, today is not Kartini's day. I wear Kebaya as one of my project which I'm really excited about. Plus I never showed wearing them, so it will be fun to see me wearing no ordinary attire!

Ohh, and a little bit info about R.A Kartini from Wikipedia - 
Raden Adjeng Kartini (21 April 1879 – 17 September 1904), sometimes known as Raden Ayu Kartini, was a prominent Indonesian national heroine from Java. She was also a pioneer in the area of education for girls and women's rights for Indonesians.

Born into an aristocratic Javanese family in the Dutch East Indies, now Indonesia, she attended a Dutch language primary school. She aspired to further education but the option was unavailable to her and other girls in Javanese society. She came into contact with various officials and influential people including J.H. Abendanon, in charge of implementing the Dutch Ethical Policy.

Her birthday is now celebrated as Kartini Day in Indonesia. She took an interest in mysticism and opposed polygamy. Her advocacy for the education of girls was continued by her sisters. Kartini Schools were named for her and a fund established in her name to fund the education of girls.
