Indonesia's people will celebrate their independence day on this thursday, august 17th 2017. along this week i can see the marching band keep practising,rehearsing for their performence on that day. and people start putting the flags up from a week before 17th.

it is going to be a great day when it comes..there will be a lot of games on that day. many people will take in part in the games from children,youth and the old people.

but, the matter is..there are plenty of people who ask for money along the street rightnow.

they're asking for money to the vehicles who run along the street ,,it is said that the money is used for celebrating the independence..

but..it happens annually...so...it's normal here to see it

i think most people here just want to have a fun during the 17th (independence day)

happy independence day to all indonesian's people

sorry i didn't mean to hurt or bother someone

i just give my opinion

Hi Didi,,

MERDEKA!!!! :D

My question is "Do you take part in the game? ":D

I just know that some people ask money to the riders. That's not cool at all. Hehehe...

Happy Independence Day! Keep writing!
You made mistakes in your writing, but with my English level, it's not easy for me to correct it. :D

So, keep writing and reading more, my compatriot. :)))
Yes "MERDEKA", happy Independence Day for our beloved country and all the Indonesian around this world. May God always bless our country and all the good leaders.

Nice to read it.
Hello Didi. MERDEKA!! You remind me of my childhood when celebrating indepence day. One of my fave game is eating "Kerupuk".Lol.
Actually, they collect the money funding for independence event. They buy gifts for the winners of the game. Or in my area there is musical night or gathering. Besides having fun you should interpret independence day with beneficial activities.

Ukraine         24th of August
