Buildings in Palembang

Is it Wednesday already?? I wish time would slow down. My mother and grandmother are leaving in two days! The both of them, and Aaron, are now watching Hairspray on DVD so I finally get some time here.

I don't have much time for a wordy post so here are a few photos.

I definitely like colour but maybe not so much of it! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so, this must be what some people in Palembang like. Maybe they feel that if they have the money to paint a place they really need to make a statement with it.





On the other hand, many places in Palembang are old and poorly maintained.



I didn't bother taking any photos but there are also many newer buildings here that are painted in more neutral colours (like bland beige). While I may be more accustomed to looking at bland buildings, I'm glad Palembang is dotted with colourful as well as faded buildings. Without them, I'd have nothing to look at during traffic jams.

I have 'Hairspray' to see on DVD. I saw the show in London last November.
