Walking on History

Today, I've just discovered my other soul mate which is called: Museum. At about approximately 11 in the morning, one of my lovely chums; Annisa picked me up with his brother. Then, we arrived at Museum Asia Afrika.

Actually, we have came there yesterday with the other friends to do our civics assignment from school. My civics's teacher participated the new learning medias exhibition. One of them is to make our civics workbook like a scrapbook. And my book was shown there! I felt 3/4 teaspoon ashamed and 1/4 teaspoon proud at the same time. Annisa and I tended to come back here on the day after to take some pictures. We asked some friends but no one could, so it was just the two of us.

And today we went there again! It was a such sunny day outside but, it's cool inside the museum. Not just the temperature, But the things inside there also. MAA is one of the highest historical places in Indonesia. Because, the Asian-African Conference on 18th until 24th April 1955 was held there, and 29 countries participated. This conference stated aims were to promote Afro - Asian economic and cultural cooperation and to oppose colonialism and neocolonialism by either the United States or the Soviet Union in the cold war, or any other imperialistic nation. This conference was an important step toward crystallization of the non-aligned movement. If you are interested with this, take a look further more here.

There are so many good old stuff which are taken care well. I took a lot of pictures until I didn't realize that I have passed three hours in a 'not-so-big' museum. I felt quite amazed with learning history this way... It's a lot more fun! But, my history teacher is fascinating as well. She's one of the best teachers in my school. And maybe also it's just the way history has mostly fascinated me (though I didn't always get good score in history class lol).

I also took some pictures with this old analog camera which belongs to my Dad! I adore the results of analog cameras for sure. So, I want to try it, and hopefully I'll get good photos.
Here are some of my favourite shots:

Both pictures by me
The shot on the left reminds me of the early days of the well-dressed gentlemen like on The Sartorialist. And the picture on the right is showing the tripod and the camera stood on the historical conference as the mute witness. I also like the vintage photo below it!

The first picture is Leica that was used on the confrence. And the second one is the picture outside that was taken inside. I love how it has the analog effect without edited.

with my friend, Neng
We left the museum after our "hunger" was brutally felt (we both didn't have any breakfast lol). After that, we had lunch and salat zuhur at Waroeng Steak. In WS, we met Melinda, and planned to do her project to make birthday surprise for her boyfriend. Then we headed to our school to meet up with some friends, It was raining on the background and thankfully to Allah, I feel like I'm hardly to feel annoyed by the rain. I've always enjoyed the rain and the after rain, Alhamdulillah. Maybe that's why I really like Bandung! So afterall, today went so fine :D

  1. Very few people I know appreciate museums. My favorites are history and art museums. I like reading the captions in each exhibit, though I haven't visited a museum since high school. Nice pictures!

    Assalamu'alaikum Sahira,
    thanks for stopping by at my blog :D
    Really? Aren't museums fascinating?! I wish I could go to art museums someday. In the near future I might go to a famous sculpture museum in my town, hopefully. I also wish to go to Tate Modern, MoMA, Louvre, and many more!

    And thank you :)
