Palembang is the capital of South Sumatra province and the second largest city on Sumatra Island. Palembang is famous for the existence of the kingdom of Srivijaya, the greatest Buddhist kingdom in Southeast Asia. One of the placesI visit here is Kemaro Island. Kemaro island located in the middle of the Musi River, about 6 KM from Ampera Bridge. On the island there is a monastery Kemaro much visited by Buddhists to pray. Here too there is a tomb of a princess Palembang. This princess has its own story, that she was married to the son of the king of China with dowry in the form of 9 golden urn, but in the end the couple threw himself into the river and drowned.
Island Kemaro there are some interesting things, such as 9-storey pagoda and tree of love. Local people believe that if loverscarved his name in the tree of love, then their love relationship will continue up to the wedding.
Palembang, South Sumatra is known as one of the cultural history of the development centers in Indonesia. Not Complet if not to see the Ampera bridge that spans over the River Musi. Musi River can not be separated from Ampera Bridge and South Sumatra. Musi River and the bridge shall be one of the pride of South Sumatra. Musi River is the longest river on the island of Sumatra, 750 km in length with a width of 500 meters. The river that divides the South Sumatra province from East to West branched. Musi river has several major tributaries including OGAN Rivers, LEKO River, RAWAS River, LAKITAN KELINGI Rivers, LEMATANG River and SEMANGUS OGAN River.
If you want to see the beauty of the Ampera Bridge is at night time because at that time the bridge was always decorated with colorful lights and very bright and radiating in all directions. Direction beam of light emanates not only laterally, but reaching to the sky. The beauty of this seemed more perfect with special lighting techniques laid out, so that the splendor of the bridge is getting looks perfect. On top of the Musi River, visitors can see firsthand the floating home. It would be interesting, if you come during the water festival in the river Musi. Usually the events held are boat races, boat decorating contest, and the race to cross the river.

Do you have to travel at work ?. I often have to travel while working. Here I will tell you about MEDAN City in Northern Sumatra. After the flight, I arrived at the international airport of Kuala Namu. The majority of the MEDAN is Batak tribe. And there are some tribes as Mandailings, Malay and Karo. BATAK and Mandailings language is the language that is often used.
In the city of Medan I see something that I have never seen before. If in the area of Java I saw BECAK driven by way of pedaling. People who drive BECAK behind. But in the city MEDAN , I saw BECAK driven with a motorcycle on the side.
Toured around the city of Medan, impressed me the beauty of this city.
Famous cultural of the Batak tribe is ULOS. Ulos generally has a shape like a scarf, but different materials and their use. Ulos specifically used in various ceremonies, be it a wedding celebration, a traditional feast and birth ceremonial. How to use also differs between men and women. Ulos usually still used by the Batak tribe’s traditional event even though they did not live in his hometown.
I do not know what is the meaning of this song because I do not understand the language but I love it. And you can listen to songs BUTET at this link.

Today I want to tell you about a place called “Kota Tua” because the place is like taking us to the past. You can see a classic old buildings and several museums. The place is located in the northern area of Jakarta. Here I saw some unique colored bikes. These bikes are rented out to visitors to tour around this place, looking at the old building.
One museum I visited was the puppet museum. There are several puppets from various regions. And some of the puppet becomes art culture of Indonesia who often performed until now in several regions in Indonesia.
There is a restaurant featuring shades of the past with classic layout. You can imagine were in the past.

Hello all …… today I want to tell a natural fashion instead of the design of a dress but the design of nature. Do you like nature. I really like forests, lakes, mountains, sea and rainwater. Why I love nature because I need time to myself. Looking for inspiration in my work. That’s why I have to get out of the routine of the big city and seek solace by going to see nature
Beautiful lake and a quiet atmosphere. Here, while listening to music I can write something or looking for inspiration to support my work. Without being distracted by anything.
In this place, I get quality time for myself. Looking at the beautiful nature. And I think nature is very special and beautiful. Birds, trees, water and wind is very beautiful in my opinion.
In this place so many tea gardens. Remember the gardens, of course I remember about my mama who has a hobby of gardening. Here also I bought some plants for my mama.
I feel freezing when arrived at this place, because the height of the mountain and the middle of this mountain there is a lake of sulfur. I can see the blue lake but I must be away from the lake due to the hot sulfur water.
On the way back to the hotel I saw a man carrying a musical instrument such as a guitar to play with the rhythm of the song Sundanese
Finally I had to go back to the hotel. I will tell more about the beauty of nature in other places I have ever visited. Do you like going to the nature or just want to relax. Use your time for it, tell me and share with me
