BEKABULUH is Labodalih Sembiring, a freelance features reporter for English-language publications (published feature articles listed here and here); a writer of fictions in English and Indonesian; an amateur photographer; a translator with Ganggang Biru Language Consulting; a Creative Writing teacher at Gadjah Mada University; and a gardener at his rooftop. Yes, he can’t stay still. Some elders believe it’s because mommy kept a pet monkey when she had him. He is also a man who loves the Indonesian archipelago: its peoples, cultures, and nature. Go to this page for ways to contact him.
Actually, this blog takes its name from a Batak Karonese woven cloth for male: uis beka buluh. You can see Labodalih wearing one in the photos above and below.
