Playing Gamelan (photo was taken from http://www.antaranews.com/berita/328768/gamelan-iringi-monolog-di-london)

Javanese Gamelan (in Portuguese: Gamelaõ) is a set of traditional music instruments from Java. Indonesia also has Balinese Gamelan. To understand more about what gamelan is, I put an excerpt taken from “Introduction to Javanese Gamelan” by Prof. Sumarsam, an Indonesian professor who…

… I Always Want to be an Architect

… I Always Want to be an Architect. I guess my childhood dream hasn’t vanished yet?

Marseille, France

Marseille, France

Few days ago, I randomly looked at my traveling albums on iPhoto then I realised… I unconsciously took tons of pictures of European buildings and especially, rooftops. Europe has been offering me with different types of architecture in each city. Some buildings were still being used and sadly, (more…)

Jadi Bule di Negeri Bule Part IV: When the Sun Comes to Town

Jadi Bule di Negeri Bule Part IV: When the Sun Comes to Town Sun comes like a magic! People are suddenly brighter, smile a lot, and talk loudly!!!

“Jadi Bule di Negeri Bule” means being a foreigner in the land of foreigners. Indonesians usually call a foreigner who comes to Indonesia as “bule”, it’s a slang word btw. You can read also “Jadi Bule di Negeri Bule Part I” here , Part II here, and Part III: Saturday in Oporto here

Yeeehaaa!!!! OMG! I’m eating the Hungarian Goulash soup again.

This is definitely on the top rank of my most fav European foods so far. The top 3s are:
1. Hungarian Goulash soup
2. Portuguese bacalhau com natas
3. Portuguese arroz de pato (duck rice)

Why? This soup tastes like Indonesian “sop buntut”. It is a bit spicy tho with European standard of spicy (read: not spicy for Indonesian :p). And in a local restaurant, it costs me only 2-3euros per portion!!!

Dear Telephone “Providence” (by rtp). It’s a Portuguese band, btw.

Let’s go out swimming tonight
It’s perfect now to run away
Let’s jump in your car
and not look back
I’ll come over and help you pack
Let’s just drive and make no plans
Get to the ocean and hold hands
Bury our feet deep in the sand
Lay back and wake up together
Let’s chose the cheesiest
motel room
With pink wallpaper
and red velvet chairs
We’ll drop our bags
and jump in the bathtub
You’ll lean against me
and I’ll wash your hair
Let’s get the floor wet
and not even care
Let’s walk till we find
a roadside cafe
Eat breakfast with our legs intertwined
Laugh so hard everyone will stare
Walk along unknown streets
Singing loud and drinking wine
Let’s go out swimming tonight
Then kiss our way back to bed
Oh lover, let’s have our own room
Let’s dance and howl at the moon
Let’s pretend there’s nothing else
But you and me and me and you.
