Starlight: It took over two months for this starlight to reach my world.
Usually I provide the starlight distance at the end of a post, but I feel very embarrassed that it has taken me so long to find the JKT48 in Kimonos Calendar for 2016. These would be great images for your desktop. They were created by a contest last year, where JKT fans got to vote for their favorite “Calendar Girl” (Denny starts humming Neil Sedaka‘s tune already). The 13 women who received the most votes got a month (plus one leap day).
I suggest listening to the song linked here (it will open in a new window, I copied his lyrics in the photo cations). Then just click on the image for the full, WALLPAPER SIZE! Set it as your background each month! The holidays noted on each month are for recognized days in Indonesia. All major religions are noted. I (HEART) you Indonesia, and your religious tolerance*.
Denny singing: Yeah, yeah, my heart’s in a whirl — I love, I love, I love my Monday kimono girls —
January! You start the year off fine!
February! You’re my little valentine!
March! I’m gonna march you down the aisle!
April! You’re the Easter Bunny when you smile!
May! May-be if I ask your dad and mom!
June! They’ll let me take you to the JUNE-ior Prom!
July! … Like a firecracker — all aglow!
August! When you’re on the beach, you steal the show!
September! Light the candles at your Sweet Sixteen!
October! We’re Romeo and Juliet on Halloween!!!
November! I’ll give THANKS that you belong to me
December! You’re the present ‘neath my Christmas tree!!!
Wait! There is one more. 2016 has an extra LEAP day — so why not AN EXTRA KIMONO …
Oh, you need a wallpaper sized for your MOBILE? No problem. Click on any of the thumbnails and save one for your mobile device.
I love, I love, I love my calendar girls — Yeah, sweet Jakarta kimono girls
I love, I love, I love my Indonesian girls — Each and every day of the year!
(Not Neil Sedaka. )
*Check out marvelous Melody’s month of May. Indonesia recognizes Christianity, Islam and Buddhism. (….and if you consider Marxism to be a “religion”, then even that!).
The national motto of Indonesia is “Unity in Diversity”. Indonesia is predominantly Muslim of course, but other religions are also represented and tolerated. Protestant denominations are from the Dutch colonial period, Roman Catholics dominate near Timor, Bali is Hindu, Buddhism and Chinese religions are common in most urban places.
