Another PM-related crisis. I received the official invitation today and the dress code is FORMAL.
- We’re in Aceh. If anyone brought anything formal with them it won’t look formal after being washed by being beaten against the tiles by the laundry lady.
- It’s at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon! How can I do formal in 35 degree heat?
I have one very nice skirt that I’ve only worn maybe once or twice here (meaning that it’s too nice to wear anywhere in Aceh, which is probably what makes it suitably formal), but it only barely covers my knees.
Question 1: Do I reduce the Sharia compliance to be PM-Dress-Code-compliant?
Question 2: If I am meeting the PM that means I have to wear stockings right?
