    by the way…. how many baby bushes were clubbed to death to make that ukelele?

  2. Achmad Sudarsono says:

    Seksi Ibu Janma Yth,

    I use a special bodyshop hempwood Ukuele. The bushes had a good life and died in the service of art. It could’ve been for welfare-scamming Philosophy students in Sydney’s Newtown, so they should be grateful.

    Did you like my song ?

    Pakde Achmad,
    What your ukelele’s string made from? Cat’s muscles?

  4. fullmoonflower says:

    Heard that the strings of good Harps are made from cat’s colons.
    God ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    How many cats were killed? ๐Ÿ™

  5. Achmad Sudarsono says:

    Ibu Fullmoonflower Yth,

    Strings were made from a kucing garong, so it’s ok.

    We should all join the Green and save the planet and ourselves.

  6. fullmoonflower says:

    But we still need kucing garong to catch tikus got…. ๐Ÿ˜›
    and tikus got‘s urine will causes “Leptospirosis”.
    It’s dangerous…!!!

    But plastic strings is also not good for our planet…
    Any suggestion??? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Mr. Batak – please donโ€™t eat the dog !

    In fact… there is not only Mr. Batak ate the dog.. but also Mr. Minahasa/Manado, and Mr. Yogya…

    have you ever heard about : Tinoor Rangsak (dog meat cooked with their blood) in Manado, and Sengsu (Tongseng Asu / dog meat cooked with coconut milk) in Yogya?
    Tinoor Rangsak is same as Saksang…

    what a cruel life for animals….. ๐Ÿ™„

    Seksi Ibu Fullmoonflower Yth,

    Given the hobbies of Kucing Garong, I don’t think there’ll be a shortage in the future. ; p

    Va Va Voom !

  9. fullmoonflower says:

    hihihi….. ๐Ÿ˜†

    Pakde Achmad,
    hmmm…. do you mean a black head seksi kucing garong like you? ๐Ÿ˜›
    well, there are so many here….
    and I think you are the one of them…. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    Ibu Fullmoonflower,

    (Pretty name, btw),

    Achmad is a lover and a fighter. Like Soekarno, he loves all the women of Indonesia, (even the Babu, in fact especially the Babu!). But like Soekarno, there is no reason to be selfish, Achmad must share – himself – with as many daughters of Indonesia as possible.

    But to save the Green and Tree, he will use protection, be it just serenading them, or the traditional kind — Catholic Roullete !

    But back to saving the Green and Tree.

    (Pretty name, btw)

    Thank you Pakde Achmad,
    Not only the name….. I know I am pretty ๐Ÿ˜‰

    back to saving the Green and Tree

    hmmmm….. we are not LSM member, we are not govt senior officer… we only are wong cilik
    but we can start from a simple thing…. plant a jengkol or petai or pace/mengkudu/noni tree in our garden…. but if it’s impossible, we can plant a lot of spinach tree ๐Ÿ™„

    are you agree with me, Pakde Achmad? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    hmmm.. but mango or rambutan tree are also interested to plant… ๐Ÿ™„

    mas achmad,
    wongkampong found pre-owned ukulele in my neighbour’s dust-bin, it is not glossy since it was dump by the owner. I applied some guitar polish & bought 1 set of new uku strings (La Bella), but I hv no idea how to tune this little guitarlele ?
    Do u mind to teach in this forum :
    1. The uku pitch tuning (4 strings)
    2. The chords in uku for singing our national heroic ‘maju tak gentar’ song ?
    I want to play with it in my kelurahan old & new year eve party.
    Tengkyu … pareng

    And when Bataks, Manadonese or Javanese people dine at McDonalds, Nannini, Sushi Tei, Hoka Hoka Bento or alike, what would *some* judge of them? Yet another evil schemers of capitalism?
    A number of Indonesian traditional dishes are ancient history however, or found only in each of originating ethnic regions; in the city, at certain spots. On daily basis, Indonesians generally eat makanan rumah. Mainly Javanese, Sundanese and Padangese-influenced, perhaps European or American-influenced also, such as chicken soup (could use coconut milk, more spice) or fried chicken.
    Just in case you haven’t noticed, as Indonesians that you both are, we have a variety of ‘less than edible’ dishes as part of the vast ethnic heritage, made from rats, snakes, lizards, insects, worms, birds, bats, cats, dogs, to god knows what else. Another example, kopi luwak is made of you know what.

    Halo Seksi Friends !

    Pak Wongkampung Yth,

    To play the Ukulele – hold it to your heart, visualize the Garuda Pancasila, and then use “feeling” (piling), to play.

    Pasti, the lagu u want will come out.

    Merdeka and Horasbah !

    Whelhadalah, mengko gek-gek mung dadi kencrang kencrung ora karuan?

    Pakde Achmad,
    Was that you, the person who play a lagu ora karu-karuan outside of my window in malam bulan purnama? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
    It was like “lagu kucing kawin”…… ๐Ÿ˜•

    *lari sipat kucing, sebelum ditimpuk pakde Achmad pakai sandal theklek (bakiak).. ๐Ÿ˜†
