Feeling good in sarongs #KeretapiSarong

Inspired by the “No Pants Subway” event in New York, Random Alphabets (RA), a non-profit organization has organized an event called Keretapi Sarong yesterday. Keretapi Sarong means “Sarong Train” if translated in english. It’s a flash-mob like occasion where sarong-clad youths armed with a paper written their sarong stories, board the train and move around KL City. For those who don’t know, sarong is actually a large tube of fabric which is traditionally worn by people in South East Asia. The objective was to promote the traditional sarongs and also to gather people together and have fun.

It was my 2nd time joining the event organized by RA as previously I had attended the Merdeka Train Party in 2009. The event started at KL Sentral and the group boards the train to get to KLCC with stops at few stations in between. Although it’s unusual to wear a sarong and board a train nowadays, it was indeed fascinating and fun doing it in Keretapi Sarong. In certain trains and stations, there were groups with

Attracting coverage from media’s such as Astro Awani, NTV7, The Star and New Straits times, the event was indeed a successful occurrence. Good job Random Alphabets for organizing such a fantastic event. Here are some photos that I took on the day.

One Response so far.
