My Masterpiece

This is a shot taken during my recent working visit to Bandung, West Java, Indonesia recently. It's a very entertaining Javanese puppet show, ‘wayang golek’. The title ‘my masterpiece’ in no way refer to the photo I captured but to the show by the master puppeteer.

Should you visit Bandung, don't miss the opportunity to drop by for an entertaining evening at ‘Saung Udjo’, a mini theatre where this wayang golek is on show.

More amazing is the ‘angklung’ (bamboo musical instrument) performance by a group of highly talented youngsters. They even play the Beethoven very beautifully! I will post pix of angklung later.
