What did I get for Myself to Celebrate the Oct 25th

You are used to get tons of birthday presents from your friends. But when was the last time you gave yourself a birthday present?

I am indeed very lucky. I have my families and friends around on my special day —Well, actually I don’t want to call it a special day since it reminds me if I am getting a year older. Their presence are more than enough and sometimes, having them tricked or surprised me adds a fireworks into my day.

For the-N times Oct 25th this year, I wanted to give myself a present. A memorable one. Therefore, I started saving some bucks for that present.

Photo Essay: A Warm Afternoon at a Local Market in Toraja

Heaven. At least for a woman who loves to cook like me. I had been eating meat the whole days and I was craving for my veggies!

If you asked me where was my favourite place to interact with locals every time I travelled? I would have answer: local market.

Pak Hendrik brought us to eat Toraja’s Chicken Lawak at a Halal restaurant in front of a market. I was fascinated by how calm the angkot (public car) station was when he told me, “You’ll find the best coffee inside that market — Pasar Rebo.” He pointed to a market next to that station.

You Could Never Escape from Anything-with-Beef Cuisines in Makassar

My flight was at 6AM from Bandung to Makassar. I brought two slices of wheat bread because I knew I would starve during my 2h flight. I fell asleep immediately after I was seated. I didn’t realise if my plane had taken off nor I heard the attendants coming. I woke up in the middle of my flight to take a few bites of my breads, then got back to sleep.

Pimo, a friend of mine who worked in Makassar and the reason why my friends & I came here, picked me up at the airport. She found me grumbling on how starving I was. “OK, we pick Rina and Rara up, then we’ll have Sop Saudara. You have no objection of eating beef in the morning, right?” said Pimo calmly. I nodded immediately and said loudly, “I WANT ALL THOSE MAKASSAR AUTHENTIC CUISINES. YEAY!” I barely had heavy breakfast, but this time I wouldn’t say NO. Little I knew, I shouldn’t had said that because I could barely escape from beef here in Makassar. You’ll know why.

My Huge Admiration for Saung Angklung Udjo, Bandung, Indonesia

At the end of the show

“You have got one angklung each, now look at the number written at the bottom of your angklung, and pay attention to my right hand,” a warm voice of an average 50-ish man was heard throughout the mini auditorium. We were on our seventh session during the Angklung performance .
