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:
1. Cuteness
2. Foodness
3. People

1. Let's start from something cute like: 

Burung Puyuh - Quail birds from Semarang bus to Salatiga
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)

boxes full of burung puyuh, quail birds. 1 box are 18 baby birds
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.

2. The section of Foodness begin:

Putu Cake, Kue Putu Salatiga
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.."

Daun Pandan, Pandan leaves
Pandan leaves for the good smell of Putu cake.

Manggosten, Manggis fruit
Manggis (Read: Mang-geez), Manggosten fruits. Thick bitter skin and big seeds will not make you surrender to taste the sweetness of Manggis.
Mie Ayam Bakso, Meat ball chicken noodle for lunch
Chicken Noodles and Meat ball for lunch is normal.

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! 
Jamu seller, Penjual Jamu, Herb seller
"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.

no more road for public for this moment because of funeral
Our solidarity are too strong in the town. Funeral session could make public road be idle.

I love this video, because this little boy knows how to spend his day busy at.
