Description

a bookmark for my lil sis... which goes together with [link]
she really loves the story jaka tarub...

the celestial maidens from the story jaka tarub, which holds the resemblance of the story ayashi no ceres or hagoromo or faeries' landing or whatever you want to call it...
usually the story is about a bunch of celestial maidens comes to earth to bath [maybe because there's no drainage in heaven], a boy/man [usually a simple man: woodcutter, hunter, farmer... choose whichever suitable... he is somehow hard working, very handsome, always helps the grannies crossing the streets, even perhaps helping densus 88 in finding the terrorists in my country while at the same time helping the pets around the world in his free time...] peeking from the bushes/trees...
he saw their clothes/scarves/robes lying helplessly on the ground and, hey, why not steal one? [you can sell it afterwards! wahoo!]
and then one of the celestial maidens cannot go back home without her clothes/scarves/robes and is left alone by her elder sisters...
and the man meets her... and she meets him... [and you can hear the sweet, romantic song being played...]
so he thought, a celestial maiden as a wife sounds cool...
so off they go to the wedding... and they have a daughter or son or whatever...
then the wife finds out that her husband has been hiding her clothes/scarves/robes in ... [put whatever word you find appropriate: under the pillow, behind the cupboard, at the toilet, whatever... in jaka tarub, he hid it in the rice storage...]
so off she goes to where she belongs, leaving her husband and children... abandoning them without even bother to send some divorce papers to make it legal...

so yeah...

here's the celestial maidens of jaka tarub...
they come down to earth via the rainbow, thus their colours...
their youngest sister, nawang wulan - the soon-to-be bride of jaka tarub, is not in the pic...
