There’s a simple thing that always makes you happy. Example, I like being called by Christie, my nick name, honestly rather than Marsela although it’s okay too if there’s someone who calls my first name. But I’d be really happy if they call me my nick name because it feels like we are closer. Other example, call me crazy or not, I like if someone assumes where place I came from. Hahahah… I almost meet no one who can guess the exact place. Mostly, they said that I’m a chinese, betawinese (is it the right noun?), bataknese, manadonese, muka-anak-gaul-nese (?) Yes, the last one is the most absurd one. Hahahahah… I tell you I’m a pure javanese :) *my official statement*
Other thing makes me happy is coming to Pringgandana, a musical drama event presented by a community named Sanggar Budaya Nusantara at STAN last Sunday (I have told you my campus has so many events, haven’t I?) The crowd here was so busy because the audience was very excited to watch the show. They repeatedly gave applause for the stunning performance. My friends and I who sat together in the fourth line were stunned too with the show. The show opened our eyes widely cos we couldn’t take ours off from 7.30 till 9.30 pm.
Pringgandana is a musical drama and (I think) it is the same way as Broadway (in Indonesia verse) :p The show depicts an epic love story mixed with traditional dances in Indonesia. I barely don’t know Indonesia has these amazing traditional dances yet the dress is so cool, even I think,  perhaps I can mix them so they can be worn as a daily wear one.
Well, I made a short video about Pringgandana. You can see the video below. I made it with AVS cos my movie maker is broken. And why there’s a banner in the middle of the video screen… Grawwwhhh…. I don’t know how to repair it since I just installed it three days ago from my friend and he didn’t know how to solve it too. The most important thing, you can watch the video, rite? :D

Me and Mey takes a photo with one of the Pringgandana’s casts Dursawala (or the heck is it Dursawaka? I forget, prefer to call it Dursawala hihihi)

           When I wrote this post, rain had fallen so hard so I had to skip my mandarin course. Big windy rain, public transportation, traffic jam and Jakarta?? Nice disaster. I would get wet before I attend the class. It’s so sadden cos I really love the way I learn foreign language. Hahaha… Yeah, I will miss its lesson for today. Duibuqi laoshi Donald!
How I’m craving to get the invitations of Bazaar Bridal Week but the reality was I was too late to get them. I still can enjoy the collections of these amazing dresses created by Indonesia’s top designers. So, what are you waiting for? Check them out!
Quick photos posts!!

            Fesbudnus which is known by Festival Budaya Nusantara is an event presented by STAN’s (Sekolah Tinggi Akuntansi Negara) student that shows Indonesia’s culture mostly from Sabang until Merauke. I can say that Fesbudnus is a mini Indonesia which celebrates its culture richness. It’s like a diorama with huge meaning: proud to be Indonesian.
            Booths and stage with Indonesia’s element were prepared outdoor. The sun shone brightly at 1 p.m. when I came here but the curious visitors who came kept increasing and filled the area up. They saw the performances on the stage like Indonesia’s traditional dance or other traditional performances presented by STAN’s student. While the performance went on, the visitors could walk around the booths too. The booths visualized every student’s region’s culture. STAN’s student came from all over Indonesia and automatically brought their own culture, like mostly seen, regional language that is different one to another. But we don’t have to worry to communicate because bahasa Indonesia unites us.
            At these uniquely-designed-booths, we could just ask some question about their province/region culture or see some art work too to be sold cheaply like handicraft, traditional food and beverages, also different traditional fashion all over Indonesia which is so unique, very beautiful and magnificent. One of my dream is going over Indonesia, learning about Indonesia’s kain (fashion) and lifting them up so that the world can see Indonesia more and more again. Who’s with me? :))
