Imlek and Valentine 2010; Your fortune in Tiger Year
Photo and story by: Susanna Sunarno
2010 is the Chinese year of Tiger, which falls on 14th of February 2010. This is the same date as Valentine’s day. Perhaps this year we’ve got Tiger in love or a loving tiger? haha… Well, at least that’s my prediction. You may disagree, of course.
Indonesian also celebrate this Chinese year. Infact, it became a holiday for everyone, thanks to the late former 4th President of Republic Indonesia, Abdurrahman Wahid (1999 – 2001). He is also known as ‘Gus Dur’. Because of him, Indonesia now have a day more of its holiday. And, everywhere you can see the celebration. I took some photos of the “Cici junior (little miss)Competition” in Bandung, West Java.
