The first thing in my mind about Rianti is BEAUTIFULL

No one doubt that She has different beauty that other actress. Rianti become famous because She become MTV VJ, model, advertising, Video Clip model, and movie star that make her more famous.

One of the famous movie starred by Her is ayat-ayat cinta. Sadly, I have to honest that ayat-ayat cinta is not good movie for me, but it become very great movie in my eyes just because Rianti played on that movie. Just enough Rianti to make it very good. Just Stand in front of camera is very great, moreover if she interact or do some acting…

Ok, I am the big fans of rianti

Rianti…oh….Rianti

When you will marry me?

17 AUGUST

17 August is independent day of Indonesia. Indonesia was born at 17 August 1945 when Mr Soekarno proclaims the independence of Indonesia. Since then, we always celebrate 17 august as independent day.

Usually there are parties of independent day. Those parties are such kind of traditional contest. Example of contest are sack race (balap karung), eat cracker (makan kerupuk), etc. We really enjoy this event. People or especially kid are very happy with the contest.

In other case, at school or at state office, we celebrate it by ceremony of raising bendera merah putih (national flag of Indonesia). This ceremony is meant to respect the heroic struggle of national war.

Happy Birthday for my beloved Country

BEDUG

Well, I think it is same as church bell unless bedug has sound like
dug, dug, dug….

Bedug is known as a tool in mosque used to call moslem to pray. It is made from big wood. Its center is hollow so that it make one big cylinder. The front of bedug is covered with animal skin as a membrane to produce sound. As I remember, commonly the membrane is come from goats skin

In order produce sound, we have to hit the membrane so hard. It will produce heavy and low tone sound, but the sound of bedug can be heard even if from far distance.

Well, bedug is one unique thing in Indonesia.

SERVANT(housekeeper)

I think it is common, if one family has a servant for housekeeping in Indonesia. The fact that we have high population and it could low our GDP. So, only few people have high quality of life, and the other have low quality of life. Peoples who have low quality of life will work anything that support him to survive, one of them is become servant.

2 SEASON

One of the nice thing in Indonesia is, there is only two season in a year. We call it “kemarau” season (dry season) and “dingin” season (rainy season). There are no fall, winter, spring, etc.

So, we don’t experience extreme condition, such as when winter temperature fall below 0­0 C and when summer it rise more than 35 0 C. In here, Indonesia, daily temperature range is between around 21-33 0 C whatever our season is.

BUREAUCRACY

Ketela umbi : Have you take your ID-card? It has been a mount since you go to local office

Ketela akar : well, it hasn’t finished yet

Ketela umbi : What take it so long?

Ketela akar : hmm, you know, bureaucracy!!

The actual meaning of bureaucracy has been distorted. Don’t be surprise, in Indonesia, commonly, the word bureaucracy has pejorative meaning.

Cheap and delicious

Delicious food doesn’t have to be expensive.!!

We called it “gado-gado”. Eating gado-gado means we change our human nature which is omnivore to become herbivore. That’s right, gado-gado only consist of vegetables. Such as spinach, cabbage, etc.

To prepare gado-gado, we have to put all vegetables in one plate then pour it with what we called “sambal kacang”. Sambal kacang is special sauce for gado-gado. Mainly, it consists of peanut, but to get spicier we mix it together with hot chili. Sambal kacang and vegetables are just the best delicious soul mate.

PREMAN

In indonesia, term preman refer to bad guy or criminal.

Many people tell me that term “preman” is come from word “freeman”. That’s mean preman is man that don’t want be bound by any kind of rule. They chose to live free, just do what they like.

Explanation above is theoretically correct. But in practical, preman is just bad person that collect money that doesn’t belong to them. They operate at many places, such as traditional market, terminal, even in our neighborhood. Well, the money that is given to preman is called “uang keamanan” (security money).

Durian

Durian

Durian is one of the fruit that I like it.

Durian is big fruit with hard spiky skin. It has yellow skin. And it is as big as melon, but durian has very hard skin.

To eat durian we need to open the hard skin. It is very difficult, because the skin is so tough. We cannot open it by hand but we need tool such as knife, etc. And actually, it need special skill to open it.

The great things about durian is taste of fruit. It is very very very sweet. It is not just ordinary sweet like sugar. It has unique specific distinctive particular special sweet that cannot be describe by single word, sentence or whatsoever.

PEACE, OFFICER!

In Indonesia sometimes peace doesn’t refer to positive thing. For example if we are stopped by police because of speeding or we break any kind of law in the road. Then if we say “damai di tempat” (peace at this place), it means we make deal with officer that he doesn’t have to fine us, but we must pay amount of money to the officer. Or in other word the “peace” stuff means we buy the law.
