(Saturday Post) : Diverse in Ways but One in Celebration


foto-imlek-2017For two days, I have already experienced two kinds of Chinese New Year celebrations during my journey inside Jakarta’s famous Chinatown, Petak Sembilan in Glodok area. Buddhism and Confucianism in the temples and Catholics in Santa Maria de Fatima Toasebio Church still in the same street.

Diverse but still one. May the rites are different, may they possess different religions, but while celebrating Lunar New Year, all are equal as belong to the same culture. More happiness and prosperity in this fire rooster year.
