Hey everyone! I'm starting a blog series called "The Weekender", this is my first blog series and I'm so excited to sharing it with all guys. So, last month I went to Asian African Carnival one of the event from Asian African Summit 2015. The event held in Bandung, West Java and I was in there for two days of endless parties to celebrated 60th anniversary of Bandung Conference (Asian-African Conference) which took place on 18-24 April 1955. Let me break it down for you. There are thousand of people from all island in Indonesia (Bali, Java, Borneo, Sumatran, and Papua) and Asian country (China, Japan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Jordan, South Korea, and Cambodia) participated in this carnival. Everyone was wearing their traditional clothes and introduced their culture. The carnival location was held at historical Asian-African Street where dozen of leaders from Asian and African nations performed a historical walk during the 1955 Bandung Conference. 

The carnival parade was really impressive, they were dancing their traditional dance and playing their traditional music instrument. They were also costumes parade, all of them are extremely amazing and unique with colorful of colors. At the end of the parade Bandung government introduced their new touring bus (with bold yellow colors) which we can use to explore every spot in Bandung. The audience were toddler until elderly from all city in Indonesia, It's so crowded and all I could saw only the sea of people.The atmosphere was great and festive and basically everyone has wonderful time. It's seriously the coolest and biggest event ever held in Bandung and also the most epic weekend ever!
