Jogtug Celebrated 64th Anniversary of Indonesia's Independence

Few days ago, I joined @jogtug (Jogjakarta Twitter User Group) to celebrate 64th anniversary of Indonesia’s independence day. The community gathered in an event called #pitulasanTU (the word ‘pitulas‘ means “seventeen” in English). Why seventeen? Because Indonesia celebrates its independence day on Agustus 17.
#pitulasanTU took place at Gedung Agung, Malioboro, Yogyakarta. The idea was simple. We wanted to share something about Indonesia to tourists. And, we chose “gasing“, a traditional toy as the medium. We also handed some gifts to them. When we found tourists there, we talked to them, gave them the some souvenirs (pin and stickers), and asked them whether they wanted to play gasing with us.

It was a wonderful moment! Dear @jogtug, we did it! Here are some photos from the event.
