View this post on Instagram

Ni review saya tentang Rumah hantu @hauntumy . Mungkin ramai dah tahu yang di @thelinckl ada 1 rumah hantu iaitu Hauntu. Konsepnya berbeza dengan tipikal rumah hantu kat funfair atau themepark. Instead of jumpscare atau hantu yang melompat jerit-jerit kat korang tu, di hauntu mereka lebih pada psychology. Buat korang terasa seperti berada dalam movie seram. Menariknya sebab ada jalan cerita dan pelbagai ending yang berbeza bergamtung pada decision yang anda buat semasa dalam cerita tu. Siap ada plot twist lagi! 😅 . Paling salute ialah pelakon-pelakon di hauntu ni memang sangat talented and menjiwai watak buatkan kita rasa nak datang lagi tengok lakonan mereka. . Kepada anda yang nak rasai kelainan untuk aktiviti bersama kawan-kawan or family boleh datang. Cuma nasihat saya pada mereka yang jenis tak penakut tapi nak join juga masuk bersama kawan-kawan anda, you just play along je dengan whatever happen inside insyaAllah you will enjoy it! Eventho you tak takut, just think that you pay for it so you better enjoy rather than spoiling you own experience. Team kami sangat enjoy sebab masing-masing ada karakter yang menghiburkan 😂 . tag sesiapa yang korang nak ajak ke rumah hantu ni. 👍🏻 . #KualaLumpur4All #GayaTravel #VisitKL #AboutKL #VisitMalaysia2020 #vm2020

Keroncong band performance

It’s actually the name of a ukulele-like instrument & an Indonesian musical style which typically makes use of the keroncong (i.e. The sound chrong-chrong-chrong comes from this instrument). So, the band consists of a flute, a violin 🎻 , a melody guitar 🎸 , a cello, string bass in pizzicato style & with either a female / a male singer 👩🏽‍🎤👨🏽‍🎤

 

She 👩🏻 has learnt that 1️⃣ ukulele named “cak”, a steel-stringed. The instrumentalist strums chords with up to 8️⃣ strums per beat in 4/4 rhythm. The off-beat strums are often accentuated. The other ukulele named “cuk” is slightly larger & has nylon strings. As a set, both the “cak” & “cuk” form an interlocking pair that mostly gives Kroncong its characteristic kron & chong 😊

Tor Tor Dance & Gordang Sembilan

Tor Tor dance & 9️⃣ great drumbeats/ percussion (Gordang Sembilan in Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s national language) are the cultural heritage of Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s Mandailing community, which originally came from Mandailing, North Sumatera of Indonesia 🇮🇩

 

It’s a slow motion dance with the movement of the feet / toe to toe 👣 & hand 🤚🏻 movements with a music 🎵🎶 rhythm played with the traditional music instruments e.g. Gondang, Flute, Trumpet 🎺 etc. At present, Tor tor dance is to celebrating harvesting, welcoming guests, wedding 🤵🏾👰🏽 ceremonies. No ❌ longer associated with the religious / mystical ceremonies in the past years

Kuda Kepang

It was 1️⃣st introduced in the early 20th century when Javanese immigrants 🇮🇩👭👬👫, who brought this unique dance & 1️⃣st arrived in the southern tip of  West Malaysia 🇲🇾 It’s usually performed by 9 to 15 pax, usually all men dancers traditional Javanese clothes

In the past years, Kuda Kepang is believed to have a strong linkage to the spirit world, however at present it becomes a regular dance performance for the birthday 🎂 of the Sultan of Johor, state government celebrations & cultural shows in Malaysia 🇲🇾

It’s a traditional Javanese braided hobbyhorse dance & in the dance performance, all the dancers will ride the 2️⃣D mock horse which is traditionally made of bamboo 🎍🎋, then painted & decorated with colorful paints and cloth to resemble a horse 🐎 🐴 Some of the dance movements in the Kuda Kepang rituals are based on traditional Malay silat

Beats of Selangor 😃 ~ Temuan Indigenous Tribe
