Join "Keretapi Sarong" this Saturday - Kuala Lumpur

Now this is something interesting. If you enjoy flashmobs, group activities and such, this activity should provide some entertainment or fun if you participate.

Come Saturday, Feb 25, expect hundreds of people dressed in colourful sarongs to flock to trains in the city, Kuala Lumpur. Observers can take pictures, smile or wave at participants.

The Keretapi Sarong poster that can be seen all around Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur.

Keretapi Sarong is an event inspired by No Pants Subway, a flashmob which, in 2009, organised 1,200 New Yorkers to ride the subway without wearing pants in a snow storm.

The event is organised by RandomAlphabets (RA) with the objective to bring people together and have fun. RA is a non-profit organisation that puts together event-based projects in and around Kuala Lumpur.

Participants are encouraged to write their “sarong stories” on a piece of A4 paper and hold it up during the event like them below..

At the end of it, these “sarong stories” will be posted on the Keretapi Sarong official website ( as well as on RA's Facebook page. Your chance at fame here.

Keretapi Sarong is scheduled for 4pm on Saturday. The venue will be announced on the website today.

Anyone game for it?
