Rainbow Salad: Featured on Food Network. A classic favorite for omnivores and carnivores alike. Tousled with 22 different ingredients and topped of with tamarind dressing – no wonder it tasted so rich. Here‘s Julie and Julia’s breakdown of its recipe for SF Examiner.
Mango Shrimp: Tropical flavors mixed into one plate. Umami taste of jumbo shrimps drenched in strong fragrances of basil, mangoes, red onions, red peppers and red chillis! Satisfies the tongue and the olfaction.
Fiery Vegetables with Tofu: If you come from any Southeast Asian countries, this dish will torture you with homesickness. The sauce tasted so authentic, you feel like going back to your home country to get a cheaper version of this. Tofu is firm and green beans are cooked well enough to give its crunchy texture. Plain perfect for vegetarian/vegan; full of spice!
Paluda: (I’m just copying and pasting as described on the dessert menu) Burmese bread pudding float with vanilla ice cream, rose water, sago, young coconut jellies, and topped with peanuts. The taste? Doesn’t sound as impressive as its description. Ice cream was too sweet for me, while rose water was served slightly warmer than expected, so the ice cream melted easily. Taste-wise, these ingredients combined well for the tongue’s taste. Maybe shaved ice can help to keep it cool, so then it becomes a more tropical version of Ais kacang.

This is what I’ve been working on for the past month. It’s supposed to be a surprise for my boyfriend, but I already told him about it and even showed him all the progresses I’ve made throughout the month.
Plus, I’m not good at keeping secrets.
Happy first anniversary, honey
Except for things like… Uhm, what all these things mean here… And that’s only for me and him to know
Well, I can share a bit. The singing T-Rex at the background was what brought us together. We first met at T-Rex Family Karaoke. All the foods in the drawing are our favorite foods. He also sent me 9 bouquets of flowers for each month we’ve been together, until I stopped him. One of those bouquets has “failure” daisies that grew to become the most beautiful kind of daisies I’ve ever seen – white petals and pink center.
And then we also share a baby Stitch plushie, who’s so cute I gotta hug it all night. It’s holding a BlackBerry because all Indonesians use BlackBerry.
One of my cars at home is a black Toyota Fortuner, which also happened to be identical with his car.
And there are waaay more stories in this picture than I can ever share.
Now I would like you to count the number of:
- Strawberry trees
- Species of animals
