Hi friends ??? Any plan for weekend ???
If you are too lazy to spend your weekend traveling out of city, maybe this can be your option. Spending your weekend in city is not that boring. There are a lot of fun places to be visited. One of my favorite place for weekend is to visit museum. In Jakarta, we have so many museums that worth it to be visited. One of them is National Gallery, the museum is one of art museum in Jakarta that provide art exhibition.
The art that is exhibited in the museum such as ; painting, contemporary art, carving, mural etc. This museum is opened for public and free. It's located in front of Gambir Station in Central Jakarta. Sometimes it has different theme of art exhibition, but they have permanent collection that always be there whatever the season. When I visited the museum, they held Art Clay exhibition.

This colorful ceramics will start playing melody 
when you pushed the botton. It was so unique.

Absurd creatures with its skateboard.

This all buttons was made from clay.

The shelf and all bottles, remind me when I was in laboratory..haha
All bottles contained specimens from many type  of clay, some of it is edible.
I tried one that looks like a bread, actually they already cooked it as bread.
The taste was not bad, It was like I'm eating sand.
