On 17th August, Indonesia celebrated their Independence Day (59 years independent from the Dutch) and there was lots going on to celebrate.
There was so much fire breathing, and the whole area around the National Monument stank of petrol but it was pretty impressive – definitely good entertainment 🙂
We had a multi-cultural lunch date at the weekend too – at a beautiful old Dutch restaurant in the city. It was filled with beautiful antiques and old photos, but more importantly they served mashed potato 🙂 🙂 🙂
After lunch I went to see ‘Grace of Monaco’ at the cinema. I love going to the cinema here, it’s so cheap! The film was a biographical story of Grace Kelly’s life – it was great, go watch it 🙂
