Bonsai is a different genre of novel. Written down by Pralampita Lembahmata and published by Gramedia on March 2011. It's not only a novel but it has more. It explores a complete history of Chinese people in Indonesia since long time a go. How they faced Dutch colonization, suffered during Japanese occupation, continued with some racial tragedy and still many more.

Although the novel is based on history but the author is good in telling the story. It is started from a Chinese family in current time and it will bring us back to the old time. Interesting. Despite feeling bored, you'll be curious to find out more about the book.

One thing to note is about bonsai, the mini plant. I just found out that bonsai is a special plant. It has high philosophy. It can live for hundred of years and can be inherited to your family. I remember there is a bonsai gallery nearby my home perhaps it's time for me to drop by very soon:)

Salute to the author and his (or her?) hard work of detail research. I just finished the book and felt full of new knowledge.
