Once Upon A Time Back in Town, Salatiga
I know i still have pending stories about Europe and U.K, but i can't help to upload some photos of home sweet town. (Some photos below taken not only in Salatiga).
The photos divided to 4 sections:
|Burung Puyuh (Quail birds) , i bought them from an old stranger woman in the bus to Salatiga from Semarang, Central Java.|
I bought 1 box full of 18 quail birds only for 15,000 IDR (around 1 USD)
|Don't be surprise the old stranger woman still have more boxes there, wow!|
Look how cute they are, i fallen in love in first sight.
|A very brave cat, sleeping on top of five star "Army General" 's car! (photo taken in Jakarta)|
After seeing cat above, better watch stand up brownie dog, somewhere in Salatiga
|How creative Indonesian are, old tires became decoration in the village with the model of yellow cat there.|
2. The section of Foodness begin:
Putu (Read: Poo-too) Cake, no no don't think its a poo just how you pronounce it. It is very yummy food favorite of typical human in Indonesia. The ingredients are rice flour, brown sugar as filling, coconut as topping and to make it smell good with Pandan leaves. It has the way to get your attention by the calling sound, "ngooongg... ngooong.." (watch the video below)
I asked the seller : "Please show us to make the sound up Sir.."
|Pandan leaves for the good smell of Putu cake.|
|Manggis (Read: Mang-geez), Manggosten fruits. Thick bitter skin and big seeds will not make you surrender to taste the sweetness of Manggis.|
|Chicken Noodles and Meat ball for lunch is normal.|
3. The section of People:
|The children waiting in the isle for getting bless from the priest in the church|
|Too many people sick and waiting for getting the ticket number, some of them were on waiting list since 5 a.m but the doctor start working at 10 a.m!|
|"MBOK JAMU" (Read: mm-bok Jamoo), Mbok is a call for a lady, Jamu is herb like tamarind, ginger and she processed it to you for a drink to get healthier. She would walk more than 5 kms from houses to houses for selling the herb drink.|
|Chickens seller in Salatiga market. Why i could imagine the outfit of him like serial killer in thriller movie|
|A smile from a little girl who just lost her beloved one.|
|Our solidarity are too strong in the town. Funeral session could make public road be idle.|
|Public road were full of people send sincere condolence to the family|
The video about being healthy also can be fun!
I love this video, because this little boy knows how to spend his day busy at.
4. The section of Others:
|Indonesian not familiar with olive oil or bluberry, the photo above none both of them, also it is not grape, it just "i don't know purple fruit" and you can't eat it.|
|Do you notice something? I'll make it clear in below photo|
|Wallah.. it's me the lizard.|
|Ignore me i am just hangin there..|
|A house in Salatiga|
|Nice spot of old motorbike|
|Do you see anything odd? not yet?|
|How about now? Yeap.. where is the toilet and where is the water, i think the one who use this toilet has 7 meters long of arm!|
|If you have a child but can't afford to buy car then be creative!|
|Another seat for another child, why not?|
