Local Musicians to be Considered

Personally i always go for westerns musicians when i need to hear songs, most of the time, but sometimes they sound kinda overrated to me. So i go to these musicians for a change. For me they have very different lyrics, they can find rather unusual words or idioms, or phrases for their songs, and it really means something, something so thoughtful, deep, and beautiful. They are not new in the industry, and probably have loads of groupies or fans already, but i want to just write it down for you and i've always been their admirer.

Monty Tiwa


Well he's not really a musician actually, he's a film-maker, but he sings a song called "Kosong", which is very gloomy and has that hopelessness feeling. The lyrics can relate to everyone, i think everyone has ever felt that empty feeling in this happy yet mad rollercoaster called life even just a little bit. The simple melodies and harmonies complete the emotional feelings of the song.

Payung Teduh

This is my all time favourite! They can creatively write songs and one thing that i admire the most from them is their music arrangements. It's absolutely beautiful. They got some serious instrument skills as well. And their musics sound so Indonesian, which is amazing! Not all general musicians choose this kind of genre willingly. I'm so glad for them for making their musics sounds the way they are so they can give a different 'color' when things feel just the same these days...
I could simply write and make a list of my favourite local musicians but i think these two are my most favourite so far, so.

current karaoke

"Take me to church
I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your life
I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me the deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life"

Hozier is one cool dude...

The Cereal Paradise


It's like I was struck by lightning. I read an article on Broadsheet Australia about cereal and not just about regular cereal but POP-UP CEREAL CAFE! This is so unusual, I mean you can find or buy cereal very easily but knowing the fact that someone has a plan to open a cafe/restaurant that specifically serves cereal....? BRILLIANT. So you get to experience and taste different cereals that you rarely buy or find in just one place! I'm talking about Cereals Anytime, a cereal cafe that will open on February 12th at Swan Street Chamber of Commerce, 214 Swan Street, Richmond, Australia. Not only serving a cereal experience but it will also educate people about nutritious meals. How cool. All you Australians must be very excited about this...


You know that most people like cereal, even the hardest rockstar like Craig Nichols from The Vines would kill for cereals. Bryan Robertson, the creator of this cafe, has a very out-of-the-box idea to make a place for people to enjoy cereals and get appropriate informations about healthy meals. It's important because I think restaurants have responsibilities to give foods & beverages in a good quality, and it's better to inform people about their food's nutrition facts and stuff. 

So let's go to Australia, one of the best melting pots in the world!!!
