A reminder on how hectic my days were, how fast time flies, how seldom I've blogged (you can even still see last year's christmas greeting on this front page), and how incredible this year has been. Merry Christmas.
"Rumah Batu" (the Stone House) is how people in the neighborhood call it. Passing in front of the house years ago, my high school self and friends was stunned by its stoney, unusual appearance and speculated on who owns and lives in such house. I've never imagined that someday I would meet the owner of Rumah Batu, became one (out of thousands) of his students, and eventually visited the house years after I graduated from college.
The house was built in 1996 by its owner/architect, Prof. Gunawan Tjahjono. For more info about the house, visit archnet.org/library/sites/one-site.jsp?site_id=9876
"The Four Seasons" is a masterpiece composed by Antonio Vivaldi. Perhaps originally written for violin concertos, it scores four different sets of stories that represent all four seasons, beautifully arranged by the textures of tunes.
On Saturday, January 21st 2012, The Butterfly Symphony Orchestra played the score at Erasmus Huis. My favorite part was the "Autumn".
