Hi colleagues and friends. Today post is to share a little bit on the culture of my country Brunei Darussalam. In this image you noticed that all of the men are wearing the same type of shape of clothes. We call it "baju cara melayu". Its one of our national dress that is widely worn during any festivities especially during religious ones. It is a symbol of Brunei ideology Malay, Monarchy and Islam.

The musical instrument is a traditional musical instrument famously made by people residing in the water village in the very old days of Brunei. The small circular shape are made from brass and supported by wood. The instruments are usually played accompanied by gongs and small drums in ceremonies, weddings and corporate functions.

I hope you like today post.

Bonjour Mohd,
a beautiful sight on local instruments, a discovery. Beautiful colors although you did not have the best conditions of lighting under the tent.
I make a workshop because I find that you could gain a little the size of your photography by making a simple operate with the freeware Photofilter.
When your photograph is in the format vertical as holds it, you make him make a time rotation so that it's found with horizontal then you make adapt format of TL and you give your photograph in vertical position by still making rotation in the other direction, you do not have more that to record it and respect the weight required by TL, the turn is played. I rather clearly hope to have been with my poor basic English

Amitiés Mohd, heartily
