An event inspired by No Pants Subway, but you had instead to wear everything and a sarong to ride the LRT. Everyone was also encouraged to display “My first sarong story…” on a piece of paper to make it more interesting, get the buzz going and to relay to those around them the story of their first sarong. Now into its second year, Keretapi Sarong saw people from all walks of life participate, but what made it even larger in scale was that we had participation of folks from other cities such as Boston, Washington, Philadephia and Mansourah, Egypt.
The day started with Keretapi Sarong goers gathering at two designated stations: Hentian Pudu LRT and Titiwangsa LRT at 3pm. We then got onto the trains alighting at Pasar Seni LRT, Dang Wangi LRT as well as Kg. Baru LRT to create a spectacle with buskers and music groups keeping energy levels high. The crowd then headed towards Ampang Park, the last station enroute before making their way to KLCC park. We saw familiar faces too but many were first time Keretapi Sarong goers and even first time sarong wearers. A few Spiderman’s arrived in sarongs and we also noticed sarongs helming from different parts of the world such as Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Thailand. The highlight of the day definitely was getting onboard the trains and then walking along the streets towards KLCC. Just picture us in groups, in our sarongs all having fun, really good fun.
We ended the memorable occasion with a huge group photo of all the people participating in this year’s Keretapi Sarong. A big shout out to Boston, Washington, Philadephia and the Mansourah crew for making this year’s Keretapi Sarong a global event, a BIG BIG THANK YOU to Prasarana for allowing us to get onboard the trains in our sarongs and of course to Wago for the continued support.
