Moorish Aesthetic. Grand Mosque - Masjid Raya, Medan, Sumatra, Indonesia

Moorish Aesthetic. Grand Mosque - Masjid Raya, Medan, Sumatra, Indonesia
Made by Rana Pipiens
When I walk to the Groningen railway station by way of the Folkingestraat, slightly rising and then dipping towards the Zuiderdiep, I pass the Synagogue built in 1905-6. It's a handsome building in the Moorish Revival Style which was much in vogue in the second half of the nineteenth century and the first decade or so of the twentieth. Its design was by the well-known Dutch protestant architect of churches, Tjeerd Kuipers (1857-1942). He'd been much influenced by the school of Gottfried Semper (1803-1879), who'd planned the famous Semper Synagogue (1838-40) of Dresden, Germany. The Kingdom of the Netherlands in those days was a foremost colonial power far-reaching to both West and East. Under its jurisdiction still fell what is today Indonesia. The island of Sumatra in the second half of the nineteenth century knew unprecedented growth, mainly due to the development of tobacco cultivation and rubber culture. The northern town of Medan expanded explosively, and among the many new edifices was a modern mosque in the same Moorish Style as the Groningen Synagogue. Commissioned by the ninth Sultan of Deli, it was largely financed by the 'captain' of the Chinese faction, the fabulously wealthy Chong A Fie. As far as I know, it's uncertain who actually planned the building architecturally but usually its design is attributed to two Dutch architects: one Klingenberg and Adolf J. Dingemans, boh of Amsterdam. Ground was first broken in 1906, and just one hundred years ago - in the Autumn of 1909 - the building was ready to be inaugurated on September 9. It's a really handsome building, enhanced by the imported columns of Italian marble, a clock donated by Queen Wilhelmina, exquisite floral patterns. A wonderfully light and airy space, it's great for quietude and contemplation, and for prayer, of course. Invariably, on leaving this pleasant space, you're asked to join discussions over a glass of water or cup of coffee about the relative merits of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Seeking to divert from this higher theology and metaphysics, I one afternoon pointed to the aesthetic of the building. Upon which one of the interlocutors triumphantly exclaimed: Yes! and it's Allah who's given you an eye for that! What then to say...?!

Nita Aartsen Quatro @Medan Jazznation 28 May 2011-2 This was the first time i came to a Jazz concert in my own city and it was GREAT! The musicians, the songs, the atmosphere, the place and the people who watched them were GREAT! I love Jazz! Actually, there is one big jazz event in Indonesia every year, which is Java Jazz International Event, but it's always held in Jakarta. Hopefully, someday i can see the worlds greatest jazz musicians in Java Jazz. Medan Jazznation is like Sister of Java Jazz International, because there were only a few bands played in this event and it was held outside of Jakarta, as capital city of Indonesia. Medan also in other island, in Sumatera island. So, i was so lucky to watch them, though :) For the very first time of Medan Jazznation played 2 big bands, Nita Aartsen Quatro and Dwiki Dharmawan World Music Band. There were also performed a band from my campus State University of Medan, De'Tradisi. They've played in Java Jazz Festival with other worlds musicians. *i never know that they are from my campus! ??* A young band Trend Setter, that won in this event also performed with Dwiki Dharmawan Band. This one Nita Aartsen's song i really like. Just hear :) www.myspace.com/nitaaartsenquatro/music/songs/selamanya-7...

Donli

View large on black Donli, a child whose standing in front of the public telephone facility, initially appeared very enthusiastic though a little embarrassed when i took this photograph. Donli is one of the unfortunate children who had been lived with their parents in one of the abandoned building, Medan, that had built by the Dutch in the region of Kesawan Medan, North Sumatra. The building itself once was the biggest department store in the colonial era. Thankfully, along with dozens of other children that age and lived in the same building with him, Donli still tasting school even with the limited ability of parents. Continue to learn Donli and hopefully one day everything will be different and better for you in the future! Medan, North Sumatra August 29, 2010 Thank you very much for viewing, and for all your wonderfull comments, awards, and any critiques. I really appreciate it a lot !

Lake Toba, Indonesia

Lake Toba, Indonesia
Made by valenlim
Lake Toba (Indonesian: Danau Toba) is a lake and supervolcano, 100 kilometres long and 30 kilometres wide, and 505 metres (1,666 ft) at its deepest point. Located in the middle of the northern part of the Indonesian island of Sumatra with a surface elevation of about 900 metres (2,953 ft), the lake stretches from 2.88°N 98.52°E to 2.35°N 99.1°E. It is the largest volcanic lake in the world. In addition, it is the site of a supervolcanic eruption that occurred about 74,000 years ago, a massive climate-changing event. The eruption is believed to have had a VEI intensity of 8. This eruption is believed to have been the largest anywhere on Earth in the last 25 million years. According to the Toba catastrophe theory to which some anthropologists and archeologists subscribe, it had global consequences, killing most humans then alive and creating a population bottleneck in Central Eastern Africa and India that affected the genetic inheritance of all humans today.

Cukup lama saya melihat dan memahami foto ini untuk memberikan judulnya, dan akhirnya saya menyerah sendiri. Saya yakin mungkin teman-teman bisa memberikan masukan kira-kira judul yang bijak untuk foto ini. Foto ini saya ambil ketika waktu sore hari ketika langit masih cerah dan biru. Dua orang lansia yang pada waktu itu sedang berjalan santai menarik perhatin saya untuk saya jepret. Bangunan besar yang terlihat pada latar belakang adalah sebuah bangunan kuil yang belum selesai dibangun.

Made by loose_grip_99
For some reason I didn't take many photos of the former Deli Railway station at Medan even though we lived there for two years. Probably because steam had finished by the time I arrived in 1979. This one shows the engine shed behind a PNKA diesel (DHG 1000BB from Henschel) running light engine towards the station which is off to the right. The trackwork is definitely in need of some weedkiller!

A photo of my Nana's Jasmine in her flower garden. At first i didn't know what the name of this flower, but Nana said, most of the people call it Chinese Jasmine. It was big like normal rose and smells soooooooooo good ;) I was very grateful that day, i can captured it, because the white color of this jasmine didn't last for a long time. This jasmine lasted only about 24 hours after blooming.

Got a chance to meet up with a friend in Medan. We have not met up for around 5 to 6 years. He told me he got a simple recording studio which is just good enough standard for there local usage. And I found out his simple studio is like this! This is pretty much a professional recording studio already !!! Yet the rates are pretty affordable.

Finally, the weather's been clear enough to get a reasonable photo of Medan City (Kota). As you can see it's pretty large so it's tricky to see it all unless you fly very high. This photo was taken as we were coming into land on Polonia airport's runway 23, so were fairly low at this point.
