Friday Shoot Out: The Letter M

Friday, June 12, 2009
Thanks to Sarah Lulu at Normal Is A Cycle On A Washing Machine for this week's assignment. This is what she said:

Well since I'm thinking constantly of my new granddaughter Matilda ....Next week's topic (thank you for choosing me!!) ... is... Anything beginning with M.

First of all congrats to Sarah Lulu and her family for the sweet new member in the family. May Matilda Margaret bring a lot of joy and blessings into your life.

Now, back to the assignment. I was amazed when I realized many important parts of a town start with the letter M. In this post, I have added several new shots to photos from my blog archive. Let's see! The letter M stands for:

Map of West Java

Local markets selling various items, like fruit and vegetables

Various Food Menu, for example:
Black Pepper Broccoli Rice & Pangsit


Unique Merchandise, for example:
Handmade Bag, Wayang Golek & Wooden Craft Clock



Memorial or Monument

Local Mall

Traditional Music

Congrats on your new granddaughter! I love her name! Matilda -- how pretty.

These merry glimpses of life in your part of the world are wonderful. Those boy musicians are intriguing. I would like a clip of their music, I think!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great "M" words, Rosidah... It's SO interesting hearing about your area and culture. SO educational for me!!!! Your broccoli/rice dish sounds good--but what is pangsit????

Hope you are having a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Thom said...

Good morning, good Sunday Hello, Michalis

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Good evening Rosidah. Lovely posting as always. Hmmmm, I love those turnips hanging in the local market. I can make yummy spring roll out of them....mouth watering! Yum!

Nice country you have over there. Hope your weekend is great!

ROSIDAH said...

@ All: Thank you for the wonderful comments.
@ Quilly: Those traditional music instruments are called Calung, similar to Angklung. I don't have any video documentation on them. But I think you can see some performances on YouTube :)
@ Betsy and Thom: Here's a link from Wiki about pangsit

All great M's, especially Matilda.

Chele said...

Very cool! I loved your selection of pics.

Thom said...

Ah thank you for sharing that my friend :)

Zaroga said...

Super photos, Rosidah. I enjoyed them very much.

Carleen said...

Very clever, Rosidah! I haven't been to Indonesia yet (I have been to Malaysia, your neighbor, though), but I know that one of these days I will convince the Amazing Egyptian Dude to take me there. All I have to do is tell him that he can eat plenty of fish, and it should be easy to convince him, LOL!

Patty said...

I almost missed your Friday shoot out. I thought I had caught up last week.

Well, I have two more days to play catch up.

I loved your "M" photos. The traditional music photo is wonderful and I love the silhouette. That rice dish looks so yummy. Does it have meat in it. I don't eat meat. I eat a lot of rice dishes, though.

You take care, my friend.
