The Chendela is a unique bed and breakfast located at the heart of Yogyakarta. The name ‘chendela’ is a Javanese word for ‘window’, and just like a window, we want to be a place in which you can take a peek of Yogyakarta in a nutshell.
Expect to experience a comfortable stay in a once private centuries-old home, that fuses traditional artisan craft with modern contemporary design. The house may be recently refurbished for the purpose of accommodation, but we still keep the existing traditional elements such as windows, doors, tiles and joglo.
The property is set only 200 meter from Sultan Palace or called Kraton, 300 meter from Malioboro city center and 400 meter Tamansari Watercastle. •

Handsome, highly decorative circular map of the Eastern Hemisphere by Guillaume de L'Isle.
Australia is shown without its eastern coastline while northern Japan is shown as a very large island designated "Terra Incognita," almost attached to mainland Asia.
Korea is drawn as a blunt rectangle, Madagascar is labeled with its old name (Menuthias Island), some features and national boundaries in Europe, Asia, and Africa are the same as recorded by Ptolemy fifteen hundred years earlier, and contemporary Russia is designated "Scythia". Hokkaido appears to be confused with Kamchatka, and inside the island a long text reads "Stagna habens paludosa, in qua calami nascuntur magni, et ita compacti, ut homines illi cum illis trans fretari Soleant Ptol: l,7, c, 4.", adopted from Ptolemy.
The image area is a circle with a diameter of 48.2 cm [19 inches], on a larger sheet. The title is printed in the upper margin: "Orbis Veteribus Noti Tabula Nova." Guillaume de L'Isle was a prominent French map maker during the early eighteenth century. He was appointed France's first Premier Géographe du Roi in recognition of his skills.
This map was engraved by Johannes Condet and published by Jean Covens & Cornelis Mortier, Amsterdam, circa 1730.
Condition: It is in excellent condition, bright and clean, with a bold, crisp impression on a heavy paper, reinforced on the verso, with no rips, tears, or creases.
You know those nosy relatives during Thanksgiving? It's even worse in China. Especially since having children & passing down the family name is one of the most important parts in Chinese culture.
Some desperate singles resort to hire a fake boyfriend or girlfriend to take home.
Showering isn’t allowed New Year’s Day. Sweeping & throwing out garbage isn’t allowed before the 5th. This is to make sure you don’t wash away the good luck!
On the other hand, there’s a day before the Spring Festival dedicated to cleaning. This day is to sweep the bad luck away & make room for the good.
What else is taboo during Chinese New Year?
- Hair cutting (before Feb 2)
- Using scissors, knives & other sharp things
- Arguing, swearing
- Saying unlucky words (such as “death” & “sickness”)
- Breaking things.
In other cultures, children receive gifts for holidays. Gifts are also exchanged during the Spring Festival. But Chinese children receive something else too—red envelopes.
Also called red packets or pockets, they include money. This money is supposed to help transfer fortune from the elders to the kids. They can also be given between bosses & employees, co-workers, & friends.
With the development of technology, digital red pockets are the trend now. People like to send one into group chats and watch the others fight for the money. This is called qiang hongbao (抢红包), or literally “snatching red pockets”.
You eat dumplings for every meal, every day.
Well, technically you’re supposed to. But not many people do that anymore because you can have too much of even the most delicious foods. So most people will eat dumplings during the New Year’s Eve dinner. Others will eat them for the first breakfast.
Contrary to popular belief though, dumplings aren't popular everywhere in China. It's more of a northern thing. In the South, people would rather eat spring rolls (egg rolls) & balls of glutinous rice in soup called tangyuan (汤圆).

O calendário gregoriano é um calendário de origem europeia, utilizado oficialmente pela maioria dos países. Foi promulgado pelo Papa Gregório XIII (1502–1585) em 1582 sendo este uma adaptação do calendário juliano implantado pelo líder romano Júlio César (100–44 a.C.) em 46 a.C. 🔍🗓️
De Janeiro a Junho os nomes dos meses eram homenagens a deuses greco-romanos ou comemorações romanas, Julho uma homenagem ao Ditador Romano e Conquistador da Gália, Júlio César, Agosto uma homenagem ao primeiro Imperador Augusto e os restantes meses o nome deriva da sua posição no calendário na altura (sétimo, oitavo, nono e décimo meses).
Acima ficam alguns mapas que mostram um pouco da influência do calendário gregoriano, não só pela Europa como por todos os restantes continentes.
Se queres saber mais acerca da origem de cada um dos meses do ano passa no blog da cuscolandium (link do blog no feed da página).

Beautifully hand-colored example of Waghenaer's map of the Galician Coastline, from Cape de Ortegal in the east, to Monte Louro and Cape Finisterre in the west, centered on Coruna, Malpica de Brigantinos and Ferrol.
Lucas Waghenaer was a Dutch pilot who produced the first set of effective navigational charts, under the title Spiegel der Zeevaerdt. These gorgeous charts, engraved by Baptist and Jan van Doetecum, embody the latest contemporary knowledge of navigation and position finding and set the standard which was followed for more than a century. Waghenaer's charts are magnificent works of art, which are highly sought after by collectors.
An essential map for collectors of the region and the earliest decorative sea chart of the region.

Tag your Bay Area | San Francisco friends as this one is for anyone who knows & loves the 🌉#🌁.
Dogs outnumber children in San Francisco. It makes sense that people living in a city named after St. Francis, the patron saint of animals, would love "man's best friend." SF has the lowest percentage of children of any major city, according to U.S. census data - check out the #DogsofSanFrancisco#DogsofSF .
The deck of the #GoldenGateBridge rises or falls by up to 16 feet on cold or hot days. The Exploratorium had an exhibit at Fort Mason that viewed the bridge through a scope, letting you see the temperature based on the deck level.
SF... your tap water is 85% pure snow-melt from Yosemite. The source of the city water is an aqueduct stretching clear up into the Hetch Hetchy reservoir, in Yosemite National Park. The mayor of SF first wanted the water in 1890, but the push for flooding the picturesque valley was the 1906 quake & resulting fire. By 1934, the dam was built, pipes were laid, & the city was drinking the Sierra's finest. 280 miles of pipelines feed water to 2.4 million people in San Francisco, Santa Clara, Alameda, & San Mateo county.
The tide is so fast in the Bay that some boats end up moving backwards during peak flows. Tidal currents can flow at a speed of up to 4 knots in some places, and during certain conditions, will hit 5 knots. That's about 6 miles per hour, and twice as fast as many small sailboats normally go.
Mt. Tam was a NORAD control center tracking Soviet bombers & controlling U.S. nuclear-tipped anti-aircraft missiles. During the Cold War, the military bulldozed nearly 100 acres of soil off the mountain's west peak so a radar installation & missile control center could be built. Soldiers stationed there 24/7 tracked incoming aircraft & could unleash short-range nuclear tipped missiles from 3 launch sites.. Marin, #SanFrancisco , and Angel Island.

Approximately 50,000 years ago, Indigenous Australians invented the Boomerang & since then the most imaginative minds in the country have developed Wi-Fi, medical penicillin & box wine. Here are some of the most ingenious & awesome things to come from Australia.
Wi-Fi : In an era of hyper-connectivity, it’s hard to fathom a world without wireless communication, but this recent invention actually stems from radio astronomy research conducted in the 1970s by John O’ Sullivan & the CSIRO. In 1992, the technology was patented and is now used by more than a billion people worldwide.
As mentioned in my last post (click back) >> the Black Box Flight Recorder.
Box Wine : In 1965, South Australian winemaker Tom Angove patented a bag-in-a-box which could hold a gallon of wine. Commonly referred to as Goon, the cheap wine cask changed Australian drinking culture & became a trend throughout the 1970s, 80s and 90s.
Ford Ute : Short for coupé utility, the ute was invented after a Gippsland farmer’s wife sent Ford a letter in 1932 requesting “a vehicle to go to church in on a Sunday and which can carry our pigs to market on Mondays.” Lewis Bandt, 22 year old engineer at Ford, was tasked with the design & in 1934 the first Ford ute was released.
Google Maps “You are here” are three words that billions of people recognise from Google Maps, a mapping service developed by Danish brothers Lars & Jens Rasmussen in Sydney the early 2000s. The tool was purchased by Google in 2004.
Feature Films : The Story of the Kelly Gang was filmed in Melbourne in 1906. The silent film has a reel length of about 1,200 metres & a running time of over an hour. First screened at Melbourne’s Athenaeum Hall on 26th December 1906 before premiering in the United Kingdom in January 1908.
Cochlear Implant (bionic ear) : Invented in Melbourne by Professor Graham Carrick in the 1970s. The surgically implanted device stimulates the auditory nerve, helping the patient to hear. Approximately 324,200 people have received and benefited from the technology.
