I want show my gratitude to Mama Miyuki Easy Pantsy for nominating my blog to this award.
Mama Miyuki, “the woman behind the gun” of this exciting food blog wants to share Indonesian food recipes in the most easy breezy way. She also spread her knowledge and experience to recipes from all over the world. The one that I appreciate the most from her is how she makes each recipe so simple to comprehend even for a recipe phobia like me. The Ingredients Index credit for better understanding for the recipes. Check out her blogs and discover the simplest way to prepare you yummiest meal.
I want you to get to know me better, so here’s 7 random things about me:
1. I have soft spot for cheap street food, specially that reminds me to my childhood days of hawkering.
2. Currently I’m crazy with this concoction: my cold brewed Sidikalang mud coffee + a lot of sweetened condensed milk with + ice cubes.
3. I sweat profusely when following recipes while cooking in the kitchen, specially the one with multi steps.
4. I like taking pictures of food with my standard Canon EOS 550D or iPhone.
5. I hate when people didn’t turn off their flash light while taking picture of food in restaurants, so annoying.
