    Using Javanese lingo

    I and old man goes to plantation (c) Ikhwanuddin

    Wonosoban lingo just like other Javanese [central] lingo. The differences just about several words and not as soft as truely Jogjakartan or Solo style. A bit ngoko and madya [not high Javanese lingo type]. For me, it's easy. Just need to 'accelerate' several words into Wonosoban and added with local accent. For example, sometimes they add the word 'kiye' than 'kae' [this, or this is], de'e than kowe [you for people at the same age]. And ngapunten [I dunno] for the normal Javanese 'mboten mangertos'.

    Tari Jaran Kepang Wonosobo (c) ukirsari

    Harvest and national holidays on Wonosobo and several small town around like Parakan, Temanggung, Paponan, Diwek, Mergowati and Sukorejo means a festival. They will arrange an occasion in the heart of the city, so called alun-alun [city square] or in one of the villages and nanggap [Javanese lingo for special request] several traditional dances, like Lengger Dance and Jaran Kepang Dance.
    Whenever you are there in occasion, smile and pay respect, say greetings and try to offer your ciggy :) Bow a bit whenever you say "hello". If one of the dancers moving around the spectators with a hat or baseball cap open, you can give several bucks into it.
