We went to Yogyakarta, Indonesia, last December, mainly to see Biennale Jogja X. And while we were there, we thought it'd be great to let the kids see other cultural tourism spots as well, like the Borobudur and Keraton Yogyakarta.
Keraton Yogyakarta, built in 1755 by Sultan Hamengku Buwono I, is currently the palace of Sultan Hamengku Buwono X, the Sultan of Yogyakarta and the Governor of Yogyakarta Special Region (Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta). Above are some pics I took of Keraton Yogyakarta. I was in awe to see a ceiling with layers of intricately carved moldings like that. Love it. Click here to see more pictures. Enjoy!
An impressive(!) 22-minute Behind the Scenes of AVATAR, a revolutionary in fimmaking. Covering its CGI, casting, sound design, cameras, editing, scoring and more, AVATAR is truly an out-of-this-world production. Seen at Yahoo! Movies: "Creating the World of Pandora".

Have you seen Carrie Underwood's Cowboy Casanova music video? I looooove everything(!) about it. The rustic glamorous setting, the dresses and corsets, the fabulous shoes, jewelry and headpieces, the make-up, the song, the dance, the glitzy-dark-and-subdued color mood, and of course, the cinematography. It's one. perfect. party.
