POcho Pocho

This Minahasa site quoting one Ibu Harimawan, a ballroom dance teacher said that poco-poco was made popular by the ABRI or the Indonesian army. Apart from poco-poco, two other community dances – tebe-tebe and sojojo have been popular since the 1990’s. Another Yogya’s dance teacher said the poco-poco originates from the Moluccas, specifically from Ambon. Relates to a kind of wild dance under the possession of what was believed to be, of ‘ancestral spirits’.

However, Irian Jaya danced the poco-poco style when they are harvesting the padi. The arm movement during dancing the poco-poco actually resembles hoeing, rowing or sowing. and guest what, i get to record the dance during my best friend wedding back in my hometown and i didnt even know that we had it.haha..i guess its spread wide and even my people get to dance to it. lucky they never claimed its theirs LOL

Glee Cast ~ Smile (Charlie Chaplin)


Smile tho' your heart is aching,
Smile Even though it's breaking,
When there are clouds in the sky- You'll get by,
If you Smile through your fear and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through- For you.

Light up your face with gladness,
Hide ev'ry trace of sadness,
Altho' a tear may be ever so near,
That's the time (thats the time) you must keep on trying,
Smile- What's the use of crying,
You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you just smile.

Ohhh Oooh Yeah

That's the time (thats the time) you must keep on trying,
Smile- What's the use of crying,
You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you just smile.

Trip to FRIM with Joe & Tyler

FRIM or Forest Research Institute of Malaysia is a must for all nature lovers who are in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur.It is located in the suburb city of Petaling Jaya, approximately 16km north west of the capital city. It was founded inthe year 1929 and is one of the leading institutions in tropical forestry research both locally and abroad. This 600 hectarestropical forest contains a wealth of flora and fauna with approximately 15,000 species of plants though for a layman in botanic, all of them look like greeneries.

As you enter FRIM, you will be amazed by the arboretums or living museum of trees. Walk through the many nature trails and discover the many species of flora and fauna here. Remember to go to the information counter for a briefing and purchase some brochures on the plants that you will encounter before you move out to explore the surrounding area.






















Scenery that you can see from the platform.This is planted forest after they closed the mining back in 1897. Look closely,you might find pokok Durian and petai over there. LOL


















Hehehe...Make sure you bring some cash before start the trekking otherwise you gonna miss the suspension bridge.I mean the canopy walkway ^.^






















































Engkabang seed..Do you know the wax from the seed is in your lipstick and cadbury choc???


















My favorite crown shyness that u can found along Engkabang Trail.its from Pokok Kapur (Dryobalanops Aromatica) People use the resin to make tiger balm and perfume. Love the scene at night.we used to do night jungle trek and the view is spectacular.Missed it.
