Mr.B took this fabulous photos(as always) weeks ago and for the first time he was kind enough to pimp my super plain blog and voila!!! look at my lovely header and links above(yup he's the sweetest man in my life) !!!

BTW

i fell in love with that batik outerwear as soon as my grandma pulled that colorful baby out of her shopping bag,,,i screamed "oma lemme borrow that thingy for a week or maybe two! please please", i never ask anything from my grandma, excepts her delicious Indonesian foods . FYI My grandma is a former model/ballerina/designer . Super cool right? she's the most fabulous grandma of all time.     

last but not least here are some info about batik for those who never heard about it before:

Batik is a cloth that traditionally uses a manual wax-resist dyeing technique.
javanese traditional batik, especially from Yogyakarta and Surakarta, has notable meanings rooted to the Javanese conceptualization of the universe. Certain patterns can only be worn by nobility; traditionally, wider stripes or wavy lines of greater width indicated higher rank. Consequently, during Javanese ceremonies, one could determine the royal lineage of a person by the cloth he or she was wearing.
Other regions of Indonesia have their own unique patterns that normally take themes from everyday lives, incorporating patterns such as flowers, nature, animals, folklore or people. The colours of pesisir batik, from the coastal cities of northern Java, is especially vibrant, and it absorbs influence from the Javanese, Arab, Chinese and Dutch cultures. In the colonial times pesisir batik was a favourite of the Chinese, Dutch and eurasians.
UNESCO designated Indonesian batik as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity on October 2, 2009. As part of the acknowledgment, UNESCO insisted that Indonesia preserve their heritage
