9393 Dancing Post: JumpStyle Dance

This week dancing post & in line with the next 3 weeks I gonna blog a popular dance in Europe call 'JUMP':-


Please read my previous on Bulgaria Folk Dance post here than continue read today post.

The Genre of Jumpstyle Dance from wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumpstyle
Also known as Chicago Hard House, is subgenre of hard dance, its is characterised by a distorted 909 kick drum used in a 4 to the floor beat. Jumpstyle can be seen as slowed on down version of old style Gabber, but it has since solidified its position as a genre of its own, jump style is often criticized by the fans of gabber. It often uses light-hearted rave-like sounds, and tracks are likely to be quite minimal. The style is no longer at its peak, with its characteristic sounds can been seen as quite dated these days. However, bands like Captain Ahab are attempting to re-popularize the genre.

The following video from youtube on Dutch Jumpstyle icon Patrick Jumpen on his debut video Jumpstyle Dance. This guy is amazing and had upload numbers of video on Youtube. He now have his own website known as Patrick Jump style :- http://www.patrickjumpstyle.com/

Have a Good weekend , please come back next Friday for my final series on Jumpstyle dance

What is Yong Tau Foo ?

From Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yong_tau_foo

Yong tau foo ( also spelled yong tao foo, yong tau fu, or yong tau hu ) is a Chinese soup dish with Hakka origins commonly found in Singapore and Malaysia.

In Malaysia, the Ampang region of Kuala Lumpur is particularly famous for this dish. It is ubiquitous in Singapore food courts, too. Essentially the dish originated in the early 1960s in a restaurant called "Chew Kuan" as tofu stuffed with a meat paste of fish and pork, thereby earning the dish its name "Yong Tau Foo," which means "stuffed bean curd." Since then all variety of vegetables and even fried fritters have been similarly stuffed, and the name Yong Tau Foo has thus been used liberally to apply to foods prepared in this manner.

Yong tau foo is essentially a clear consomme soup containing a varied selection of food items including fish balls, crab sticks, bittergourds, cuttlefish, lettuce, ladies fingers, as well as chilis, and various forms of fresh produce, seafood and meats common in Chinese cuisine. Some of these items, such as bittergourd and chili, are usually filled with fish paste (surimi). The foods are then sliced into bite-size pieces, cooked briefly in boiling broth and then served either in the broth as soup or with the broth in a separate bowl. The dish is eaten with chopsticks and a soup spoon and can be eaten by itself or with any choice of egg or rice noodles, or bee hoon (rice vermicelli). Another variation of this dish is to serve it with laksa. Essential accompaniments are spicy, vinegary chili sauce, similar to Indonesian sambal oelek, and a distinctive brown sweet noodle sauce or hoisin sauce for dipping.

The dish is popular among health-conscious people, who favor vegetable items and avoid meat and oily food.

9393: Seems Yong Tau Foo is a Hakka dialect food, and in the past in Ampang mostly people stay there are Hakka

Yong Tau Foo is actually fish paste stuffed into items like smooth taufoo, ladies fingers, fried taufoo, chillies or sliced brinjals. You can also find them wrapped in thin soya skin (dumpling) which are then served in a soup or fried. The secret of the Ampang Yong Tau Foo is in the smooth white taufoo and the use good ikan parang (for the fish paste).

9393 Dancing Post : Bulgarian Folk Dances

This week dancing post & in line with the next 3 weeks I gonna blog a popular dance in Europe call 'JUMP':-


Since this movie 'JUMPER' release early this year, a new trend of dance call 'JUMP' popular in Europe and some part in Oceania. The next 3 week I am gonna post some good video about this dance.

The Jump dance very similar with the Bulgarian Folk Dances.

Is not an easy dances as I have seen this dances when I was in eastern Europe back 1990's . Need a lot of coordination if dances in a group

Wikipedia on Bulgarian Folk Dances :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulgarian_dances

A distinctive feature of Balkan folk music is the asymmetrical meters, built up around various combinations of 'quick' and 'slow' beats; as for the music, in Western music notation, this is often described using compound meter notation, where the notational meter accents, i.e., the heard beats, can be of different lengths, usually 1, 2, 3, or 4. One should, however, be aware that this is just the use of an incomplete musical notation, as frequently in actual play, the proportions of these beats do not follow any exact rational proportions. For example, the well known tune, Eleno Mome (Елено Моме), exists written in 7=2+2+1+2, 13=4+4+2+3, and 12=3+4+2+3 times. Here, the forms 4+4+2+3 and 3+4+2+3 exist both as a musicologist's way to attempt to indicate the tendency of speeding up the last and first beats, as well in formal version, where the musician plays 3 or 4 about equal length notes on the beat. In music band playing, the meter 7=2+2+1+2 seems favored, thus skipping some of the time-bending subtleties. Given this fact, though, some meters are more common or popular; but there is a wide variation of less frequent combinations, as well. There is also disagreement about whether one should use 1/8 or 1/16 as meter denominator, but this is just a notational convenience. In the list below, the denominator follows in part notational practice of the region, and in part the speed of the type of tune, giving the 1/4 note a reasonable number of beats per minute (as on a metronome).
