Holi Hai Festival

It was great to get back to JIExpo Kemayoran for another year to celebrate the beginning of Spring at Holi Hai, the Hindu ‘Festival of Colours’. The laughter and happiness was infectious as soon as we arrived and got bombarded by kids with handfuls of colour.. There was no way we could sit back and be spectators for the day as people ran around with water pistols and bags of colour to celebrate together, and we did our fare share of colour bombing too. Together with delicious Indian food, music, performances and sunshine, it was another magical day spent in Jakarta..

Mixing colours to throw at people!

Beautiful colours of Spring

Turning purple from too much colour!

Very sweet girls!

These sisters were so adorable and super friendly stocking us up on colours..

    That looks like an interesting (yet colorful) experience. We never made it to Jakarta yet but it looks like we’re missing out 🙂
