Mr and Ms White in pictures – ´Santa Sawo Mata´

There´s a true story about a supermarket Santa Claus in Jakarta, who suddenly disappeared. And when a little girl asked her mom, where is Santa?, her mother told her it is time to pray Ashar for Santa… This time the Santa was a muslim and it was his daily routine to pray at this time. That Santa had probably also a brownish, sawo mata skin. Santa is really everywhere and everything…


Xmas disana ada?  – Do you have Christmas over there?

Ada.. di mal-mal  – We do.. in malls

Dan Santa Claus juga ada?  – And Santa Claus as well?

Sawo mata  – brown eyes; a specific Indonesian skin tone

sawo – sapodilla [fruit] brown
