JUST ANOTHER LUNAR YEAR - PART 1

2/21/2011

Got some photos when walking at China Town, Padang City, Indonesia. The area of China town at Padang calls Pondok. Chinese community here is very unique, since if you visit Padang, you won't easily meet Chinese walking everywhere, even at the stores because usually Chinese is the boss of almost the store available at the town, right?. If in others places at Indonesia you can see Chinese is everywhere, but not in Padang City. And Chinese at Padang City are forbidden to speak in China language,there is such unwritten rule about it, so they speak Padang language. Heheh. Chinese is such minority here, that's why I heart to meet them at Pondok and feels their oriental culture there. Enjoy my photography, Peeps :

  3. As usual your series of photos is great. They are informative and beautiful at the same time.

    But all the same this post seems to be sad too. At least I regret the restrictions of the cultural-linguistic expression by the Chinese-Indonesians in Padang.
