|Untuk teman-teman Indonesia saya, halo! Saya harap Anda menikmati mengunjungi JSVB.|
When it works, if it works, the Google™ Followers tool on the right hand side of the JSVB page shows all of my current "followers": people who are signed on to get automatic updates of my blog. I like to call them my Cultural Elite. The other day, I noticed my first addition to my Cultural Elite from overseas. Welcome Anak Muda 3007!
From what I can tell, Anak Muda 3007 doesn't speak English, and has a link to an Indonesian news website. I guess Anak Muda 3007 visits for the pictures, which is cool.
Well, I don't know any Indonesian, and I am very ignorant about Indonesia in general. I do have a copy of Rogers and Hammerstien's "South Pacific" (1958), which explains the garish colour scheme for today's illustration.
This is my version of a lagong dancer. Lagong is a traditional girls' dance that tells the story of a young princess held captive long ago by a warlike king. The costumes are opulent and the dance moves are convoluted and precise.
