Happy Birthday, Gifogo!

Robertus Gifogo Liwanuru a.k.a my silly baby brother a.k.a Berto
No candles, no cake, no such birthday thingy. Only us, yeah us, the happy-go-lucky Liwanurus, plus some good food & music. Those were more than enough, tho :) Thank God and especially Erwin Gutawa for this lovely day.
  'A Masterpiece of Erwin Gutawa' was brilliant. I was expecting to watch an Indonesian version of David Foster and it's fulfilled. Mr. Gutawa and Mr. Foster are so much similiar! However, Mr. Gutawa is beyond amazing (eventho I ADORE FOSTER LIKE HELL) because he's been raised Indonesian music by becoming a hardworking music composer & conductor since the 70's. He has produced so many nice music arrangements and collaborations. Another sweet thing is he also raised his own daughter to become a beautiful singer at her very young age, Gita Gutawa. A kind of man that simply needed by our country. Obviously. (Support local music, yeah!)
There were many fascinating Indonesian singers performed, like Iwan Fals, Once, Afgan, Sandhy Sandoro, Dira Sugandi (I ADORE HER, DEFINITELY NEXT BIG THING!), Vidi Aldiano, and so on and so forth. They sang various songs made by local writers which composed by Mr. Gutawa. Best moment for me was when Afgan & Vidi sang Chrisye's everlasting songs, like 'Badai Pasti Berlalu', 'Untukku', and 'Baju Pengantin',  in medley. Chrisye is a truly legend of Indonesian pop! Lovely.

At last.... happy 10th birthday babyboy!!
I believe you'll make us proud some day as you're our "Gift of God"  :)
