from mama’s kitchen

I like Rempah Udang. It is a peranakan snack consisting of glutinous rice and shrimp filling  that you can find at Bengawan Solo. However, I like the one my grandmother makes better. For one, she is more generous with the filling.


The picture below is of a tool my ingenious Kong Kong crafted so they could make Rempah Udang more easily. I’m not sure if he learnt it from someone else but he sure did assemble it himself. To use it, you put in the rice, use the metal rod to create a depression so you can put the filling, and then cover it with rice again.

I was pulling my luggage from a high shelf and I got it down. But who knows, the shelf it was on also comes falling down…onto my toe.

It was painful at first, but when I saw it later, I noticed a heart shape and I am mighty pleased about it. The first reaction I get, though, is ‘What happened to your toe!?’

Only when I point it out do people see the heart shape. Enjoy 😀
