    In Full Flight ....... aka Flight Attendant Style

    Err, dunno yet ....... most likely for me is to attend semifinal and possibly final only.

    But since you said the magic word, it is now time for me to show, err, the Djarum Girls' major competition, courtesy of BliBli online retailer ...... Unique styling indeed - based on flight attendant attire of the 60s.

    Nice pose .... while checking her email for orders

    Stew1.jpg
    Stew2.jpg
    Always looking aloof and, err, unapproachable, they looked

    Stew3.jpg
    Stew4.jpg
    Until you start talking to them, and find the girls quite chirpy

    Stew5.jpg
    Gossipping about their, err, passenggers, no doubt

    The Effects of a Premier League Event .......

    ..... are starting to show at the Djarum Indonesia Open. Mainly on ticket prices.

    So much so that the touts this year had no joy because people are not so willing to pay the original ticket price, let alone additional "interests" on top of it. Serves the touts right .... but still, a pity for the masses.

    But Djarum worked hard to set so many huge TV screens within the compound. So technically, you can see the event live free of charge for featured matches ..... just don't expect to hear any commentary.

    For those die hard fans short on cash, there is always the rolling ATM brought in by BCA.

    This is the media centre. Very strict enforcement of ID cards, that the Korean Team Doctor failed to gain entrance despite Sung Ji Hyun's lady coach argument with the guards.

    Starbucks.jpg
    Was under the weather since Saturday morning - so a cup of hot Mocha was always welcome ......

    Crowd Final0.jpg
    The crowd on finals day during Simon Santoso's match - within the Arena .....

    Crowd Final1.jpg
    ..... inside the Istora building .......

    Crowd Final2.jpg
    ..... and within the compounds.

    The 2012 Djarum Girls .......

    ...... have yet to appear on this forum, wakakakaka.

    Instead, let us indulge in some performances brought in by the band, as well as some very hot dancing queens, doing their dance on a very hot, hot day ......

    Dance4.jpg Dance3.jpg
    The band makes its presence felt .......

    Dance1.jpg
    An energetic performance from hyper hot girls .....

    ..... but this being a very hot day, they almost collapsed after the gig

    Now .....

    ..... what of the Djarum Girls?

    Well, with huge distance-eating Canon lens, deceptive Djarum Girls picture taking is pretty much child's play. Yup, suffice to say that I could shoot 'em in the back, sideways, together in a group, or just sitting by oneself, without any suspecting eye lid.

    Yup, I could shoot 'em eating, putting on makeup, doing their hair, getting their lovely faces painted, sitting sideways with blank expressions, pretty much everything really.

    Watch this space for results.

    Here's a sample .....

    DIO.jpg
    of someone who's clearly not a Djarum girl, wakakakakaka.

    Some eye candy from long distance. Needless to say, I bought some souvenir T-Shirts from these girls.

    This Really Premier Event ........

    ........ wasn't in the badminton. Not even in the prize money. But it was in the meticulous organization and planning of the event that is repeated and improved year after year.

    Those who have not even tried coming over to Jakarta at least once during the Djarum Indonesia Open would have missed a lot.

    Of course, having a squadron of Djarum Girls always helps ......

    Here are some poses of the Djarum Girls, viewed from the back:

    This lady here takes care of the scoreboard at the Istora Main Entrance to the Building

    And this one sits idly by, waiting for the crowd and the matches to start .......

    These legendary Djarum Girls do get employed in a variety of multitasks.

    Here are pictures of those manning the souvenir booths:

    Sell1.jpg
    Such nice ..... long hair

    Sell2.jpg
    Yup, they sell DIO dolls too - at a discount during the last 2 days

    Sell3.jpg
    These girls managed to force me to part company with some hard earned Rupiahs ......

    Of course, when it is the "low season" and business has yet to pick up, the Djarum Girls would congregate as groups to do their thing ...... as in what girls normally do as a group.

    These are the typical jobs assigned to the Djarum Girls:

    These Djarum Girls are assigned to manage the virtual badminton booth .......

    Scoreboard1.jpg Scoreboard2.jpg Scoreboard3.jpg
    while these go and manage the scoreboard screens .......

    Ribbon1.jpg Ribbon2.jpg Ribbon3.jpg
    and finally, these are the ones managing the fixing of support ribbons to the crowd

    Just Like In Any Company .....

    ...... there are some, err, deadweight Djarum Girls. Beautiful, no doubt, but beautiful deadweights nonetheless. They tend to do nothing but:

    Eating1.jpg
    ...... eat ......

    Hairdo1.jpg Hairdo2.jpg
    ..... fixing their hairdos .....

    Sit1.jpg Sit2.jpg Sit3.jpg
    .....sitting down idly .........

    Stand1.jpg Stand2.jpg Stand3.jpg
    ....or just standing up blankly

    And Finally ......

    ..... there is the warrior type Djarum Girl. Yup, the ones that are strong willed enough to, ahem, tarnish their beauty by applying face paint. Given the right lighting conditions, they can look fierce, beautifully fierce, that is.

    Paint3.jpg Paint1.jpg
    The application of some war paint .......

    Paint2.jpg
    ..... creates a pretty fierce image. Yup, pretty and fierce.

    Unfortunately Benny, they would not think so ....... 'cos they don't even notice me - due to many years of experience in "stalking victims" + the superb zoom ability of my pocket-sized "Cannon".
