Respect Our Flag

Friday, February 28th, 2014

A couple of weeks ago, we were visiting at the 29th annual Oregon Asian Celebration in Eugene, OR. We’ve been to nearly every one of them and really enjoy this festival. Of course they were celebrating the Year of the Horse, but we blogged about that last month. In any event, we were strolling around (as one is wont to do at such events) and stumbled upon an interesting booth with displays regarding Indonesia.

That handsome fellow pictured here is one Edwin Suchranudin – #suchacoolnametosay. Nice guy.

Suchranudin card

(Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, the website shown on his card is under construction, but his email – if you can’t read it from his card – is tbedwins@kjrisfo.net.) We asked him about the banner behind him and he was quite proud to tell us about its symbolism. We didn’t tell him that we had just blogged about that in January 2012. We also didn’t tell him that we follow @RespectOurFlag on our Twitter account. It’s also all about Indonesia, but hasn’t had a posting since December 2012 – also at the time of this writing. Was it something we said? Follow them. Follow us. Follow each other. Be happy. Go “Sang Saka Merah Putih”!
