Our guest listening to the presentation of Rumah Gadang, which will be built in not so distance future.   

In the matrilineal Minangkabau society, the Rumah Gadang is owned by the women of the family who live there; ownership is passed from mother to daughter.

Rumah Gadang serves as a residence, a hall for family meetings, and for ceremonial activities.

The houses have dramatic curved roof structure with multi-tiered, upswept gables. Shuttered windows are built into walls incised with profuse painted floral carvings. The term Rumah Gadang usually refers to the larger communal homes, however, smaller single residences share many of its architectural elements.

Enjoying the NASI KUNING, Indonesian Traditional Cuisine.  In Indonesian culture, nasi kuning has favorable symbolic meanings. The yellow-colored rice is perceived to look like a pile of gold, so it is often served in festive occasions, including parties, housewarmings, welcoming guests, and opening ceremonies – as a symbol of good fortune, prosperity, wealth, and dignity.

Nasi kuning is quite widespread and commonly found in Indonesian culture. It can be found from Java to Sumatra, Bali, and Sulawesi.
However, it is most strongly associated with Javanese and
Minahasa traditions, where our Rumah Gadang is comes from.
