The Minangkabau people live in the province of West Sumatra, Indonesia. They are gifted with a unique culture that sets them apart from any other people in the world. A traditional Minangkabau style roof
When you travel throughout the land of the Minangkabau, you see various traditional Minangkabau houses which have the shape of a buffalo’s horns. Similarly, Minangkabau-style hats also have this shape of the buffalo’s horns. There is a legend about the origin of the Minangkabau which explains this interesting traditional style.
According to legend, once there was a disagreement between the Minangkabau people and the Javanese. Rather than involve themselves in a war, however, which would cause much needless bloodshed, the two peoples agreed upon having a fight between their buffalos. The Javanese had a huge, strong buffalo, fierce, and powerful. On the other hand, the Minangkabau people had a small calf. The Javanese were confident that their huge, powerful buffalo would easily defeat this tiny calf. How could a tiny calf beat a huge, ferocious buffalo? What the Minangkabau did was they took the calf away from its mother, and did not feed it any milk for a several days before the big fight. Just before the fight, they attached sharp, iron knives to the tip of their calf’s horns. As the buffalo and the tiny calf were let into the ring, the calf, starving of milk, saw the buffalo, and thought it was its mother. Hurriedly, the calf went to the underside of the buffalo, looking for milk. As it did so, the sharp knives on the calf’s horns pierced the under-belly of the huge buffalo. The huge buffalo was killed, and the Minangkabau won the war. This is how the Minangkabau got their name, according to legend, for “minang” means “victory,” and “kabau” means “caribou” or “water buffalo” in the Minangkabau language. This is also the source of those buffalo’s horn-shaped rooves and hats of the Minangkabau people. Because of stories such as this, the Minangkabau people are known for their cleverness. The story also symbolizes the strength of the more nurturing system of the Minangkabau culture, represented by the calf looking for its mother’s milk, which is able to defeat a more brutish system which on the outside appears strong, represented by the buffalo.

Our country Indonesia gains US$ 4.6 billion income annually which is make tourism being an important component of the Indonesian economy. But if we compare with our tiny neighbor Singapore hit 10.3 millions visitor last year, we have to be more serious about tourism. Any ideas?

Build new toilets, Dalton Tanonaka said. He reminded the United Nations has designated 2008 as the International Year of Sanitation. China had been succeed regularly hold the World Toilet Summit, to show off that its country also aware about comfort innovation, sanitation, etc. My question is, have we ever attended the Summit? I doubt since regional surveys place Indonesia near the bottom in terms of hygiene infrastructure.

If you are IT minded and you read carefully all the stories contributed to this blog, you will find it rather annoying than amusing that even professional journalist has to kneel in front of technology. Academy study purpose, it as told the story that Jeff Ooi a self proclaimed professional journalist (which I love his stories about politics and twisted stuff) is humiliating his fella Malaysian in front of misunderstood judgement made by authority due to lack of technology knowledge and followed a twisted guideline with loopholes which lead to biased judgment.

Ask any tech makers, programmers or engineers, there is no such thing as 100% "zero technical glitches guarantee" in this planet. Ever since the made up cases (read here) did by AKN Mtech (aka M3 TECHNOLOGIES (ASIA) BERHAD) Uncle Lim to create urgency and demand for his software, the way the couple Lim + Jeff (read here) poisoning public by cooking the "repeated offenders" story is shame and disgusting. Their foolish act further damage Malaysian IT society image, proves that Malaysian are so low tech even what is "technical glitches & common human errors" vs "intentional crime & scam" also don't know how to differentiate!

IT was well below freezing on the Finnish coast, but there my children were, frolicking outdoors in a pool whose warmed waters were giving off enchanting tufts of steam. Soon it began to snow, and they flipped onto their backs and strained to catch the chubby flakes in their mouths like so much candy.I had been communing with the landscape around our Finnish spa a bit differently. Earlier indoors, a muscular woman named Sari had poured a bucket of hot mud scooped from a nearby lake over me and swaddled me in a plastic sheet for half an hour, making me resemble a piece of performance art.
Hard to say who enjoyed it more: me, luxuriating in all that ooze, which Sari promised would cause me “to go to the bathroom several times today and sleep very well tonight.
