3rd Enchanting in Singapore
09 Agustus 2009

Takashimaya Singapore, July 16 – 19, 2009

 It was unpredictable that 3rd Enchanting in Singapore was implemented well, smoothly, and cheerfully. It was because there were Enchanting participants from Solo Batik Carnival 2 who came together with the Mayor of Surakarta, Mr. Ir. H. Joko Widodo. Moreover by recalling the preparation done by KBRI Singapura (Indonesia ambassador in Singapore) Mrs. Wardhana (wife of Indonesian ambassador) was directly involved and ever came to Solo to visit Batik Semar, Batik Danar Hadi, and Batik Keris, as well as her visit to Loji Gandrung certainly to meet the Mayor and his wife and some batik UKM in Solo. One of the committees, whose name cannot be mentioned here, gave a statement to the team of Batik Semar coverage that the theme of 3rd Enchanting 2009 in Singapore was BATIK theme, and therefore Mrs. Wardhana was willing to visit batik vendors in Solo by herself.

He also added why it should be BATIK theme, that was because we know that neighbor country already did no right thing by claiming batik as their attainment, and therefore through this 3rd Enchanting 2009 their claim could be barred.

Batik Semar was one of the Enchanting participants who presented a Display and an exclusive stand for showing their products. Some media were also covering this event which hopefully can be read by public society.
