The gamelan or Malay gamelan which exists today in Malaysia is basically from the courts of Riau-Lingga, Pahang and Terengganu. Although originated from the land of Java, Indonesia, the Malay gamelan has developed a distinct identity compared to the Javanese, Balinese and Sundanese gamelan from Indonesia.
Although the popularity of gamelan has declined since the introduction of pop music, gamelan is still commonly played on formal occasions and in many traditional Malaysian ceremonies, i.e Malay weddings, Royal functions, etc. For most Malaysian, gamelan is an integral part of Malaysian culture.

The elephant clock was a medieval invention by al-Jazari (1136–1206), consisting of a weight powered water clock in the form of an Asian elephant., derived from earlier Indian clocks. The various elements of the clock are in the housing (howdah) on top of the elephant. They were designed to move and make a sound each half-hour.
A modern full-size working reproduction can be found as a centrepiece in the Ibn Battuta Mall, a shopping mall in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Another working reproduction can be seen outside the Musée d'Horlogerie du Locle, Château des Monts, in Le Locle, Switzerland.
In addition to its mechanical innovations, the clock itself is seen as an early example of multiculturalism represented in technology. The elephant represents the Indian culture, and the turban represents Islamic culture.

What to Message Girls
Because SMS messaging is a fairly new concept, many of us have never been shown the secrets to texting a girl. So naturally, most guys surely blow it comes time to craft the perfect message.
Most guys misjudge the reason that a woman seems to quickly lose interest in them. One of the biggest reasons a man will lose a woman’s interest is over during the “phone game.”
Texting girls is something that any guy can learn. But it takes practice, knowledge, and the ability to recognize what kind of messaging women respond to.
Yeah, the feeling of getting dumped sucks. There’s no question about that. Sometimes, you can go crazy thinking about all the things that went wrong in your relationship.
But the bottom of the line is, the reason why your relationship ended is because your boyfriend has lost attraction for you. No, it wasn’t because you left your dirty laundry around the house or that it’s “him, not you…”, it’s because the foundation of his attraction for you faded – and it’s your fault. There are ways you can “re-attract” your boyfriend (and I’ll get to that in a second), but you have to first understand why he dumped you. Only then will you know how you can get him back.
This is what I like to call The Six Deadly Relationship Sins. Now, I’m not saying that you committed all of these mistakes, but chances are you probably exhibited at least one of these characteristics that pretty much forced your boyfriend to leave you (even if he’s claimed that he left you for another reason).
The first Deadly Sin is a common problem that over half of women have in their relationships – and that’s being way too controlling. Men are repelled by women that put unrealistic restraints on their lives. Though asserting your dominance in a relationship is important, you have to know exactly when “enough is enough”. If you don’t, then don’t be surprised that your boyfriend or husband left you.
The second Deadly Sin is a bit of a weird one, but always seeking external validity from your boyfriend is a huge attraction-breaker. What does that mean? It means that you constantly seek out your boyfriend’s approval. Asking questions like, “Do you love me? Do I look fat in this dress? Did you have a good time?” repel women. It’s like saying to him that you aren’t confident enough or good enough… and this reeks of insecurity.
I can guess by reading that headline you have visions of the female anatomy dancing through your imagination. What I’m talking about here has nothing to do with places below the waistline…it’s about tickling the space between her ears.
I like to say sex happens in the body but eroticism happens in the mind. And with women, unlocking her sexual imagination is the most powerful component to physical intimacy. Frankly, it is what will make her think of you as the best she’s ever had.
Knowing how to turn her on with words is how you go from being so-so to Sexual Superhero.
There are two core emotional triggers that women have…
1. She wants to feel sexually irresistible2. She wants to feel adored
