Original Samba Dancer

Children is the center of life,
Where the heart of every parent lies,
All the effort and hardwork,
Are dedicated to the children.

Samba Mask Dance Of Cirebon

Children are so dynamic,
They roam the world without fear,
Nothing can stop them,
From going after what they want.

Samba Mask Dance, Childhood
They don’t pretend to be someone,
As they are what they are,

Samba Mask Dance

The presence of laughter, joy and happiness.
A gift from God for us.

Upik The Panji Mask Dancer

Everybody must go through this stage,
Being born to the world,
Still pure without sin,
Everything is limited.

Panji Mask Dance

So do this mask character’s dance,
White resemblances a baby,
Movement is minimal,
Spirituality is the key.

Ambarawa Tourist Boats

Some things are specialized,

Some are for general uses,

All have a goal to achieve.

In tourist areas they have tourist boats,

To cater for people that want to enjoy,

The beauty offered by the place.

Rent and contribute to local people.

Cat And Chicken

Living together peacefully,

Sharing the same space,

Is not something strange,

Is not something difficult.

Still, some cannot share.

Survival is the ultimate thing,

People come and go,

Time passing by,

Societies develop,

Cultures are formed.

Still there are many out there,

Stray like the white cat in the alley.

Surviving, looking for a chance,

To break the cycle,

Be a champion someday.

Black & White Cat

A cat represents one of the oldest friend,

Recorded for humans,

Sometimes she is recorded as the guardian,

And the pathway to eternity.

Black and white represents truthfulness,

Where everything is just simple,

Black, White or in between.

That is what we are.

Big black round eyes,
Confident and strong,
As if asking,
“Who are you stranger?”

Me. A stranger passing by.
Strolling leisurely along the Isle O’ Beaut.
Looking for new things to bond.
