It's about FOOD. One of the things that can make me happy, VERY happy :)
Why do you think I was so happy going back to Indonesia?? GOOD FOOD, of course!!!
I'm just kidding, Mom!! Of course I was happy because I got to meet you.. And amazing Indonesian food :)
I don't know how many kilos I've gained. All I know is I HAVE to go on diet NOW. Han keeps saying that I need to lose weight so that I can look good in those pretty wedding dresses. I keep on acting like I don't care and telling him to look at the mirror and see who else needs to lose some weight. But well, deep inside my heart I know I really need to lose some weight.
Anyways, before all the fuss about diet, I want to share with you all some of Indonesian delicacy :)
Rib Soup. Simply delicious. Can you see the chilies there?? They explain everything.
It's called Tahu Telor. Some beancurd omelette with savoury peanut sauce and crispy prawn crackers.
My new favourite dessert. Frozen Yoghurt. I love this far more than ice cream. My favourite is Plain or Original flavour with mango topping.
During my trip back home, I also went to Bali for holiday. And it was AMAZING. And the food, Balinese food is just HEAVEN.
This is called Babi Guling or suckling pig. I think this is the most famous Balinese dish. The whole pig is stuffed with i-don't-know-what-but-it's-so-good spices, then roasted into crisp. It comes with other side dishes such as spiced vegetables, fried pork, pork sausage(loveeeeee), some fried pig's intestine and lung (ya ya I know, you can skip this, but if you ask me, yes I do eat those things), pork soup, and their special super spicy chilli.
This is grilled pork rib. Not really authentic Balinese food and the owner is a German (if I'm not mistaken) who married a Balinese lady. He opened this small outdoor homey resto called Nuri's and it's really famous there. The rib itself is magical. Perfectly grilled, tender, and the sauce is just to die for. Really. I spent more than one hour waiting for table there.
This is another balinese food, owned by Chinese Balinese couple. These meatballs are really good and soup is just refreshing.
This is pork satay with plecing sauce, normally eaten with rice and the meatball soup (above). I always come to this place everytime I'm in bali. And yes it's spicy.
This one is a famous seaside seafood restaurant, called Jimbaran. You HAVE to try this if you're in Bali.
Grilled cuttlefish. Chewy and spicy.
Grilled prawn. Tender and juicy.
Grilled fish (I can't remember what fish is this). Tender and savoury.
And these are the sauce combo you cannot miss. They have this pickled cucumber, tomatoes, and red onion which are GREAT. The other four are sweet soya sauce with chopped chillies, special ground chillies with spices, deep fried garlic, and an amazing mixture of chopped red onion, chillies, lime juice, and garlic. The food will be nothing without these deadly combo.
OMG, even writing this post makes me hungry. I really need to stop here. Gotta run to get something to eat. Hope you all have a fun Monday guys :)
