They never refused to give me 30 seconds of their private life. I'm talking about a lot of friendly people who posed for me. Now I visited Taman Sari in Yogyakarta. It's build in 1757 by Sultan Hamengku Buwono. The style of the building is a mixture of Javanese and Portuguese architecture. At the east gate of the park stands two dragon statues marked 1682 and this being the Year According To Calendar When the Javanese Taman Sari was built.
All visitors were impressed by the style of the building at that time. So, maybe that's why they smilingly posed for me.
Terima kasih Banyak

Kesenian Jathilan ( kuda lumping ) adalah sebuah kesenian asli Indonesia(Jawa).
Kesenian ini menggabungkan antara seni tari dengan beberapa unsur magis,
d imana penari dapat melakukan hal-hal yang di luar kesadarannya.
Dalam keadan tersebut sering penari memakan pecahan kaca, paku, m
engupas sabut kelapa dengan giginya, dan hal-hal lain yang tidak mungkin
dilakukan oleh manusia dalam keadaan sadar.

Huế is the capital city of Thua Thien – Hue province, Vietnam. Between 1802 and 1945, it was the imperial capital of the Nguyen dynasty. Its population stands at about 340,000. In Sino-Vietnamese script, used until 1945, the name of the city is written.
Huế originally rose to prominence as the capital of the Nguyễn Lords, a feudal dynasty which dominated much of southern Vietnam from the 17th to the 19th century. In 1775 when Trịnh Sâm captured it, it was known as Phú Xuân. In 1802, Nguyễn Phúc Ánh (later Emperor Gia Long) succeeded in establishing his control over the whole of Vietnam, thereby making Huế the national capital.

Kayan people Burma
List of ethnic groups in Burma
The Kayan are a subgroup of the Red Karen (Karenni) people, a Tibeto-Burman ethnic minority of Burma (Myanmar). The Kayan consists of the following groups: Kayan Lahwi (also called Padaung, ပဒေါင် [bədàʊɴ]), Kayan Ka Khaung (Gekho), Kayan Lahta, Kayan Ka Ngan. Kayan Gebar, Kayan Kakhi and, sometimes, Bwe people (Kayaw)
Padaung (Yan Pa Doung) is a Shan term for the Kayan Lahwi (the group whose women wear the brass neck coils). The Kayan resident in Mae Hong Son Province in Northern Thailand refer to themselves as Kayan and object to being called Padaung. In The Hardy Padaungs (1967) Khin Maung Nyunt, one of the first authors to use the term "Kayan", says that the Padaung prefer to be called Kayan. On the other hand, Pascal Khoo Thwe calls his people Padaung in his 2002 memoir, From the Land of Green Ghosts: A Burmese Odyssey. 
More about "Quan Ho"
Quan họ singing is a Vietnamese folk music style characterized both by its antiphonal nature, with alternating groups of female and male singers issuing musical challenges and responses, and by the fact that most of the songs in the repertoire deal with topics of love and sentimentality as experienced by young adults.
Quan ho is recognised as the Intangible Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO in 2009. The quan họ style originated in what is now Bắc Ninh Province and was first recorded in the 13th century, and has traditionally been associated with the spring festivals that follow the celebration of Tết (the Vietnamese New Year). Historically, the singing began on the evening before the festival, but today it is much more common for the singing to occur on the main day of the festival.
The "Huế songs" genre, ca Huế (歌化), or sometimes ca huế, is a form of classical Vietnamese music of Central Vietnam, particularly the Huế region. It contrasts with ca trù (歌籌) genre to the North, and the tài tử (才子) "gifted scholar" style to the South.
The singer sings solo, as in the ca trù genre, accompanying herself with small wooden clappers, sometimes similar to the phách sticks used in ca trù, sometimes shaped like small teacups.Before and between the solo songs a traditional ensemble will play instrumental sections to complement the singer. The ca huế ensemble should be of five excellent instruments, ngũ tuyệt.
On the full moon night of the twelfth lunar month, the tide in the rivers is highest and the moon at its brightest, creating a romantic setting ideal for lovers. The Thai people choose this day to hold the 'Loy Kratong' festival, or the 'festival of light.' Loy Kratong is one of the two most recognized festivals in the country.
Loy Kratong is probably the most picturesque and beautiful of all Thai celebrations. 'Loy' literally means 'to float,' while 'kratong' refers to the lotus-shaped receptacle which can float on the water. Originally, the kratong was made of banana leaves or the layers of the trunk of a banana tree or a spider lily plant. A kratong contains food, betel nuts, flowers, joss sticks, candle and coins. The making of a kratong is much more creative these days as many more materials are available. http://www.thailand.com/travel/festival/festivals_loykratong.htm
