Piring Dance from Minangkabau

This dance used to be the dance to praise the God for thanking the harvest times at the region named Minangkabau in the West Sumatra since about 800 years ago. It was very famous since the era of Sriwijaya kingdom. But, when Sriwijaya kingdom was beaten by the Majapahit, this dance spreaded to Malaysia. But as time goes by, the religion is came, today it’s only a ceremonial dance such as in marriage, etc. This dance is accompanied by the song that is played with Talempong and Saluang, that where the movement is done quickly while holding the plate in the palm of their hand.

You could see the dance here :

 

and here, if you want to see the dance when it perform in marriage event. You will see the west Sumatra traditional clothes and bride and bridegroom dress.

Some Place to Hideout with Some Cozzy Feeling

Located in Jl. Lembah Pakar Timur No. 32, Bandung, 3es view is one of some cafe with the most beautiful view of Bandung, especially in the night. This place is a little bit isolated because it’s located among some big restaurant. But, if you want some comfort, some atmospheres, some romantic place to have dinner or just to dating or maybe hanging out with your friends to spend some saturday night together, this may be becoming your first option ! I love it, the candle in your table. It’s so romantic with some city light view, it’s just perfect ! The food is good and the price is in middle class above. But, it’s worth for me. 🙂 [aci]

National TV Station’s Program in Religious day

Hi, i am sorry for not blogging recently. I was in a quite hectic days.

By the way, today is the first Ramadan. Every muslims in the world  will be fasting. You can feel the atmosphere of Ramadan too here, since Muslims are very large  number in this republic country.

This year, Ramadan is from 1 August to 29 August. Just like another Ramadan, the national tv stations (more than 10 stations) here has a Ramadan program for a month. Such as tv series with Islam theme (it can be comedy and drama), some tv advertisement will have Islam theme, and then a program about knowing Islam (such as the history, the teaching, etc) and some quizzes.

The national  tv stations here usually adjust their programs according to religious day. for example, in Ramadan month  and Idul Fitri, their tv programs will  have Islam theme, in christmas day or easter day they will have christmas or easter theme, in “Nyepi” day (last day of Balinese calendar, when no work is done) the tv programs will have Nyepi’s theme and so on for Vesak and Konghucu (Chinese new year). Those are official religion in this country. Or if they don’t have the religious theme on their tv programs, they usually have felicitation advertisement  for those who celebrate their religious day.[cel].
