As i promised u on my last entry, that big tiger+peacock mask is actually a mask named Dedak Merak used for Reog Ponorogo Dance which is very synonym with Java society around in Malaysia and Indonesia. Reog also sometimes being danced with Barongan (some sort of Kuda Kepang performance).

Oh, please dont try to say that Javanese people love to practice superstitious thing which is so contradict with islamic religion.
this is just a DANCE which TELLS a story behind it.
no bomoh2 or jin2 used for this dance okayh.

so, what about it?
lets chekidaut! ;p


The dance known as Reog is a very spectacular dance with several dancers wearing bright colorful costumes accompanied by merry gamelan music.

It is always played in the open terrain, such as in a square, street etc. This dance which always draws a lot of spectators is a traditional art dance combined with magical show or a trance dance.

The reog dates back during the Hindu period in East Java. The story is related with the legend in Ponorogo Kingdom (+/- 70 km South East of Solo). Nowadays reog dance groups can be found also in other regions of Solo, Yogya, Other Towns in East Java, Kalimantan, Jakarta, even in Suriname. One of the famous group is Reog Prambanan in the border of Yogyakarta – Solo.

The Story

The powerful King Kelono Sewandono of Ponorogo Kingdom was famous with his fighting skills and magical power, accompanied by his Patih (Prime Minister) Bujanganom & his strong soldiers were attacked by King Singabarong, The King of Lions of Kediri Jungle, supported by his army, consisted of Lions and Peacocks.

At that time the Ponorogo's group were on the way to The Kingdom of Kediri guarding King Sewandono to marry Dewi Ragil Kuning, a princess of Kediri Kingdom.

There was a big fight between mighty warriors having magical power. The peacocks flew up and down flapping their wings to support The Lions – Singa Barong.

Bujanganom with his magic whip, supported by some Waroks in black traditional dress defeated The King Lion with all his followers.

The King of Ponorogo and his soldiers merrily continued their way to Kediri on horse back. Singa Barong joint the procession The Peacocks kept close to Singa Barong opened their tail feathers which looked like beautiful fan. (Warok of Ponorogo is a man with strong magical power, always dresses in black costumes)

The Performance

The central figure of this dance is The Lion King Singa Barong represented by a dancer wearing a mask of a Lion carrying a large peacock feather fan on top of the mask (this mask is locally called : Topeng Dadak Merak). It weight around 50 kg. The dancer has to use his teeth to hold the mask from inside.

He must have a very strong set of teeth and neck to move around the mask Dadak Merak. (NOTICE THIS!: LIFT THE MASK USING TEETH! ANDA MAMPU? *tiru ayat cikgu hamdi =p) On top of this, he has also to carry a lady representing Princess Ragil Kuning. Or sometimes, he has to demonstrate his skill and strength by carrying another mask dancer on top of him, and still he could dance with vigorous and fantastic movements.

King Kelono Sewandono wearing a mask and a crown is a stylish dancer, Bujanganom also wearing a mask is an acrobatic dancer.

The Waroks in black costumes,

Jatilan - good looking young soldiers riding flat bamboo horses (Kuda Kepang).

Caplokan - Wears a dragon mask to lure Singa Barong to dance more livelly.

It is important to note that a reog dance group must have at least one "Wong Tuwo" (Old Man) or "Wong Pinter" (Clever Man) dealing with magical matters.

In a certain celebration several reog groups could perform together, sometimes until 100 groups.

Nowadays there is a reog groups with all dancers are woman, the only one is from Wonogiri regency, district of Slogohimo (50 km South of Solo).

Pelajar Seri Kota maut bunuh diri.

Fifth Former, in her Facebook wall, had warned of taking her own life

MALACCA: A 17-year-old student of SMK Seri Kota in Ayer Leleh here plunged to her death from the third floor of the school Tuesday, in front of horrified classmates.

Sally Lee Qian Chun, a Form 5A student, had abruptly walked out during a less

on in the Chemistry lab on the second floor of the three-storey block and gone up to her classroom.

Witnesses were shocked when they saw her sitting precariously on the corridor's ledge facing the empty classroom, before falling backwards at about 9.15am.

She died from fatal head injuries.

When met the Malacca Hospital mortuary, a close relative, who refused to be named, said Lee seemed fine and happy when he saw her a day earlier.

Her distraught parents, from Taman Bukit Katil, Bukit Katil, refused to speak to reporters.

Lee, the eldest of three siblings, was described by teachers as a bright and well-behaved student.

Meanwhile, it is learnt that Lee had posted several disturbing comments on her Facebook page since Jan 15, saying this would be her last Chinese New Year.

On Friday, the second day of the new year, she posted that she had planned to take her life last month.

On Sunday night, Lee wrote of a failed relationship and broken promises while reiterating her desire to take her life.

However, her shocking remarks only drew taunts and dares from friends telling her to go ahead with her plans to kill herself.

In her last post at 3.45pm Monday, Lee reminded her friends to keep their promises of buying her a teddy-bear and a coffin. She also told them not to miss her when she was gone and to take care of themselves.

When contacted, Melaka Tengah OCPD ACP Salehhudin Abd Rahman confirmed the incident, saying the case has been classified as sudden death.

Although foul play was ruled out following eye-witness statements to the police, he said a po

st mortem would be carried out on Lee's remains.

Ali Rostam visited the school yesterday.


tragic isn't?
this was my practical school last year. Seri Kota indeed a very nice and calm school. the teachers there are very friendly and welcoming. maybe i had seen seen her few times in my relief class... hmm.. cant remember.

well, i guess, she died because of having problem with stress management.... parents and friends should always aware with their children/friends status in facebook. should not dare your friend to kill her/himself okay.

i hope she rest in peace...

p/s: hope it wont be a haunted school~~ i miss that school.
