Since childhood I lived in the district of Poso, of course I know the culture. Especially now, most of my friends are those who at least have Pamonanese ancestry.
Although I am not a Pamonanese, I am very keen to wear their traditional dresses. In every cultural event, the women look beautiful with their dress. With something that looks like a crown on the head called Tali Bonto.
I used to wear it when I attended a couple of shows when I was junior high or high school but somehow I can’t clearly remember the moment I am feeling happy. And also I don’t have any photos. I finally got a chance to take photos specifically though not for a special occasion😆😆 I actually rented this dress to wear at the Women School – Graduation Day in Tentena but I had one day to take pictures.
That day, I was applying make-up for myself and styling my hair by myself. I tried to look pretty with that dress🙂🙂 Then I had a little look like Pamonanese Lady.
Last pic, a lil bit weird!
