Keretapi Sarong 2022 will be physically held on this Malaysia Day, 16 September after two years being virtual during the pandemic! Malaysians, get your sarong ready!
Keretapi Sarong 2022
Keretapi Sarong 2022 will be conducted this 16 September 2022 by LOCCO Malaysia as the organiser. The routes are as stated above, including one secret location that’ll only be exposed on the event day later. People can gather at the chosen MRT or LRT stations; MRT Kajang, LRT Gombak, LRT Ampang, LRT Subang Jaya, and MRT Bandar Utama. The organiser will later guide them to the “Secret Location” to further enjoy themselves there.
The theme chosen for this time Keretapi Sarong is Retro Kuala Lumpur, focusing on the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s eras. However, not forgetting the sarong ya! That’s basically the point of this movement by the way.
These are the outfit inspirations provided by the organisers so that Malaysians who plan to come later, can follow and wear outfits according to the theme.
Past Keretapi Sarong
