Elegant Javanese Batik

Hello all, does anyone know about batik. I want to tell about the craft of batik, which has a very high artistic value, being part of Indonesia, especially Java. Javanese women in the past made their skills in batik for a living, so that in the past, batik work is exclusively women’s work until the invention of “Batik Cap” which allows the entry of men into the field. Coastal batik masculine lines as can be seen in shades of “Mega Mendung”, which in some coastal areas batik work is common for men.

Beat your Heart With Song

Listening to music while working for me very pleasant. When listening a song there are ideas that will arise. Music I listen for example when I had to look for ideas when I work like a classic song, instrumental music, much to soft music. The song could also provide a positive energy. And I think music can provide a solution of all the problems and make us feel better. One of the songs of my favorite singers

This song is my favorite song on the social activities to help children

Today some of the songs that I listen to. How do you guys?  like any song that you listen?
