Enveloped in Glass Case

Kris, is a part of Indonesian culture.

It is a blade, with beautiful carving. People often use Kris for mythical purpose and traditional religious ceremonies. They are used mostly by Javanese people, although Kris are also found in many parts of Indonesian archipelago, and also in some of Southeast Asian countries.

The pictures below are displays of Kris, enveloped in glass case, in the Museum of Pusaka, Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, east Jakarta.


It takes an endless amount of history to make even a little tradition.

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Liquid

This is the first time I tried a black and white version of food photographs…


Cakwe with chilli sauce.

Cakwe is one of Indonesian snacks, it is fried breadsticks, eaten with spicy chilli sauce. One of my favorites.

This snack originated from China, brought to this country by Chinese travelers a long time ago.

Fruit punch on a hot day.

Wedang ronde, glutinous rice balls with sweet ginger broth.

And wedang ronde is also one of my favorite dish, this is one of Indonesian traditional drink that originated from Java.

It is made from glutinous rice balls filled with sweet peanuts, and hot sweet ginger broth.

Tastes so good for a cold rainy day… :)
