Experiencing Scottish Fest

I spent this sunday with my husband Jonah and his rugby team (Jakarta Banteng Rugby Club) at Jakarta Highland Gathering 2010. Based on their event invitation on Facebook, here is the explanation:

The Highland Gathering is a Scottish charity festival tradition that has been a highlight of the Jakarta international community’s social calendar for more than 30 years.

The Gathering will bring together thousands of locals and expatriate residents keen to socialise and enjoy unique attractions under the sun with the whole family, such as:

* Traditional Highland Games: tossing the caber, throwing the weight for height and distance
* All day sporting competitions (football, rugby and volley ball)
* Dedicated kids tents and teen arena
* Delicious food festival
* Pasar Skotlandia bazaar

Be sure not to miss the Grand Finale with spectacular fireworks and Burning of the Viking Boat at the end of the day.

It was my very first Scottish event and it was a darling! I enjoyed all the show and learned a lot about Scottish culture. I so love with people/countries that have strong tradition and historic culture. I got to see Scottish folk dance, men in kilts walking around and some are playing bagpipes, Scottish Highland games. I found out today that Scottish have this game called "Tug O War" and apparently, it's "Tarik Tambang". Indonesia and Scottland are thousands of miles away yet they have the same kind of game, how interesting is that! And I have a confession to make, I've fallen deep in love with Scottish ladies dress and promise myself I must have one. Needless to say, I'm in search of a handsome tartan fabric. I'll upload the photo as soon as I have one! *fingerscrossed*

Too bad we didn't stay long enough until the fireworks and burning of the Viking boat :( But hey, there's always next year! I'll definitely come.
