Oreo Pudding

August 10, 2020

Topday I make an Oreo Pudding.

First, I make the chocolate pudding using plain pudding powder mix with 28gr of chocolate powder and 120gr sugar (using 850ml water). Then put it inside the pudding mold (you can use square mold). Reserve a little chocolate pudding for oreo topping.

Wait for it to be hard 75%. Random spread 1 table spoon of the reserve chocolate pudding, so if we put the Oreo, it can stick into the bottom.

Why we use this reserve pudding? Because, if you put the Oreo in The main pudding that still hard 50%, it could destroy the pudding because the Oreo is heavier than the pudding surface. And if you put it on the pudding that have 75% hard, it won’t be sticky. So we use reserve pudding, to make it sticky but won’t destroy the main pudding.

After put all Oreo in the pudding surface, random spread the remain reserve pudding above the Oreo.

Second, we make milk pudding. I use 750ml full cream milk, and 110gr sugar, mix it with plain pudding powder.

After the reserve pudding above the oreo is hard enough, pour the milk pudding into it, and keep it on refrigerator so it could be hard.

There’s oreo inside the pudding

Enjoy…

Goat Tongseng and Satay Mirah, Muntilan # Central Java – Indonesia

July 28, 2020

Tongseng is an Indonesian goat meat, mutton or beef stew dish in curry-like soup with vegetables and kecap manis (sweet soy sauce). Tongseng is commonly found in Indonesian region of Central Java; from Surakarta to Yogyakarta. However, it is believed that dish was originated from Klego district in Boyolali, Central Java.

The term tongseng derived from Javanese term osengan which refer to “stir frying” to describes its cooking method. It also refer to the “seng” friction sounds of metal frying spoon against metal wok.

The soup is made of ground mixture of garlic, shallot, black pepper, ginger, coriander, galangal, daun salam (Indonesian bay leaves), and lemongrass sauteed with palm oil until it gets aromatic. The diced meat then poured into the sauteed mixture until cooked. Usually the uncooked goat meat from sate kambing (goat satay) are used. Add water until it boiled and add sweet soy sauce with tamarind juice. After the boiled mixture reduces, shredded cabbages and sliced tomato are add to add fresh and crisp texture. Some versions are prepared using coconut milk. Slices of bird’s eye chili might be added for those who prefers extra hot and spicy tongseng soup.

Tongseng is usually served with hot steamed rice. The soup of tongseng is similar to gulai soup, however gulai is cooked without sweet soy sauce while tongseng mostly appears in brownish gold colour because of the addition of sweet soy sauce. Gulai usually uses beef’s offal while tongseng usually only uses meat (goat, lamb, mutton or beef).

This Stan is one of my favourite Tongseng Restaurant, which located at Muntilan City in Central Java, near temple in Muntilan. They are open from 17:00 until sold out, and usually, around 22:00 it has already sold out.

Usually, I will arrive at 16:45 and waiting. Why I come so early? Because if you come late, then the seat will be full already and you have to queue. Usually, at 17:00 when they open, there will be some people already in there. At least, you have to wait 10 portion to be cook. This stan is quiet famous in here.

The meat is tender, and it taste very tasty. Especially when you added Sataw, yummy.. You will forget that you are in diet if you taste it.. Hehe..

VLog

I have a new hobby, actually, I wants to do this hobby quiet a long time ago. But each time I have plan, and the plan is always only a plan. Sometimes, I even forgot if I have plan of vlogging. hehe…

Actually, I want to really doing it when my trip to New Zealand this October, I even bought some action camera. But because the current situation, I have to postponed the trip.

And now, I decided to make it happened.

VLog / Blog Video,  is a form of blog for which the medium is video, and is a form of web television. Vlog entries often combine embedded video (or a video link) with supporting text, images, and other metadata. Entries can be recorded in one take or cut into multiple parts. Vlog category is popular on the video-sharing platform YouTube.

In recent years, “vlogging” has spawned a large community on social media, becoming one of the most popular forms of digital entertainment. It is popularly believed that, alongside being entertaining, vlogs can deliver deep context through imagery as opposed to written blogs.

Video logs (vlogs) also often take advantage of web syndication to allow for the distribution of video over the Internet using either the RSS or Atom syndication formats, for automatic aggregation and playback on mobile devices and personal computers.

Actually, it seems like we are making a serial drama / tv series / reality show, but the content is about reportng, just like news. And for me, that not good in history and reporting, it’s a hard things to do.

It’s really different with blogging, because in blogging, we are writing, and we check the article before publish.

But in vlogging, you need to know what to say, and the plot, and not make any mistake while reporting.

I know that each people has different skill, maybe for some people, they are born naturally for reporting something and speaking. But, I think this won’t make me not doing this new hobby. So I try to make some script for what’s the point that I want to say, and shooting some action that suitable with the vlog. And editing it, to make it looks like a story. Usually, I only make some VClip without me reporting. But this time, I really want to make video blog, and I’m doing it because I really want to do it, not because of I need traffic.

So far, I enjoy the process, and I think I will always continue this until I don’t know when. Is there anyone who maybe share something about how to vlogging? I would like to appreciate it. Here’s some of my vlog video, this is my first one and 2nd one (Indonesian language).

1st vlog
2nd vlog

And will be there more.. I know it’s not perfect, but I’m learning. And believe that practise makes perfect.. A dancer, will always practise his/her dance, so is a singer.

July 26, 2020

Today’s PJJP is going to Purworwjo Regency, Bruno Area. From Magelang, we go to Purworejo direction and when arrive at Maron, turn left to Wonosobo direction. The road is on renovation, you have to becareful.

Then about 19km, turn left to Kutoarjo Direction. After passed Bruno Market, you will passed a bridge and face the trisection, turn right. The road is good but very narrow. It will be hard if there is a car from the opposite.

After about 2.5 hours, we arrive at Curug Gunung Putri Car Parking. Then we eat breakfast first. After fill our stomach, we start to hiking.

Our first destination is Khayangan Peak Sigendol, located about 2km uphill from the car parking. Because it’s a peak, so we have to walk uphill and it’s quiet high.

The view upthere is breathtaking.. Very beautiful..

After take some selfie and enjoy the view, we go back to car parking. On the way downhill is very steep, becareful and beware of your knee because we have to hold our body, and for some senior ir’s quiet difficult.

Our 2nd destination:

Curug Gunung Putri, Curug is another name of waterfall in Indonesia. The waterfall is falling in 2 direction, and the water is very fresh.

After play in the water for a while, we go back to car park and prepare to go home.

This time, we didn’t use the road we depart, instead after arrive at Purworejo-Wonosobo Street, we turn left, and when arrive at Sapuran, turn right and follow the road and you will arrive at Salaman, then go back to Magelang. Why we use another route? Because we didn’t want to passed the renovation road again, it’s very narrow and you have to make turn with the opposite to passed.

Finally, I’m able to make Vlog for this morning walk with at least 50% reporting. I always wants to make vlog about where I go but never made it, because sometimes I forgot, and I didn’t have confidence to speak. Maybe next time, I will write a script so I know what to say haha..

Ice Kopyor

July 22, 2020

Macapunokopyor or coconut sport is a naturally occurring coconutcultivar which has an abnormal development of the endosperm. The result of this abnormal development is a soft translucent jelly-like flesh that fills almost the entire central cavity of coconut seeds, with little to no coconut water. Macapuno was first described scientifically from wild specimens in 1931 by Edwin Copeland. They were first cultivated commercially in the Philippines after the development of the “embryo rescue” in vitro culture technology in the 1960s by Emerita V. De Guzman. It has become an important crop in coconut-producing countries and is now widely used in the cuisines of Southeast AsiaSouth Asia, and the Pacific Islands.

In Indonesia, it is known as Kopyor. And recently, my mom buy Kopyor and give it to my uncle. So my uncle made Ice Kopyor. It’s very suitable this hot weather.

Added some Longan and Syrup to make it very tasty.

PJJP :: Mount Telomoyo Magelang Regency / Semarang Regency # Central Java – Indonesia

July 12, 2020

Today’s PJJP / morning walk is in Mount Telomoyo. Some of us didn’t hike until the peak, and some of us hike until the peak. And I’m here, I only hike about 5km, and because I have some senior with me, and fortunately there’s an empty jeep that going up so we ride the jeep.

Mount Telomoyo is a stratovolcano in Central JavaIndonesia. The volcano was constructed over the southern flank of the eroded Pleistoceneage Soropati volcano, which has a height of 1,300 metres (4,300 ft). The Soropati volcano collapsed during the Pleistocene, leaving a U-shaped depression. Mount Telomoyo grows on the southern side of the depression, reaching over 600 metres (2,000 ft) above the depression’s rim.

We start from Ngablak basecamp Cakrawala Point area. From here, you can go up using motorcycle or rent a jeep. It’s IDR 150.000/one way. You can climb from another route too.

This basecamp is the one bigger because there’s a car park and many people going up using motorcycle. Car park is IDR 5.000/car.

We started to hike and about 1.5 km, we found this stone hill. Very beautiful, and heard that it should has a artificial waterfall. But that time, they turn it off because they are building a dragon statue.

Then we arrive at 1st post. The view is amazing.

2nd Post

The road to the peak is very nice, and didn’t difficult at all.

After about 5km, the jeep is coming.

After a while, we arrive at the peak. The scene from the peak is very beautiful.

In the peak, there’s so many antenna.

You can see many mountain from the Mount Telomoyo’s Peak. I don’t know the precise because some of the sky were covered by cloud.

While waiting for the jeep pick us up, we enjoy the view.

Then after the jeep arrive, we go back to the basecamp because we are afraid if everyone is waiting for us already.

Actually, there are many people riding motorcycle to go up and it’s very crowded. Hopefully, they still pay attention to new normal condition: Physical Distancing and wearing mask.

Beef Teriyaki vs Beef Garlic (2)

July 10, 2020

Pomegranate Poridge

July 10, 2020

Maybe, for some people outside Indonesia haven’t seen this porridge (I don’t know, but I never heard about this outside). Sweet Porridge is Indonesian Snack and this Pomegranate Porridge is one of them. I often buy it in the traditional market.

This one is my favourite.

The pomegranate (Punica granatum) is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub in the family Lythraceae, subfamily Punicoideae, that grows between 5 and 10 m (16 and 33 ft) tall.

The pomegranate originated in the region extending from Iran to northern India, and has been cultivated since ancient times throughout the Mediterranean region. It was introduced into Spanish America in the late 16th century and into California by Spanish settlers in 1769.

The fruit is typically in season in the Northern Hemisphere from September to February, and in the Southern Hemisphere from March to May. As intact sarcotestas or juice, pomegranates are used in baking, cooking, juice blends, meal garnishes, smoothies, and alcoholic beverages, such as cocktails and wine.

Today, it is widely cultivated throughout the Middle East and Caucasus region, north and tropical Africa, the Indian subcontinentCentral Asia, the drier parts of Southeast Asia, and parts of the Mediterranean Basin. It is also cultivated in parts of Arizona and the San Joaquin Valley in California. In the 20th and 21st centuries, it has become more common in the shops and markets of Europe and the Western Hemisphere.

To make sweet porridge (source internet),

Soak the pomegranate in the water for about 1 hours. Then Boiled the pomegranate with sugar, pandan leaves, vanilla paste until soft and looks transparent and looks like porridge, very thick. Taste it, you can add a little salt if you want. Mix sago flour with 2 tablespoon of water, and pour it into the pomegranate sauce and boiled it.

For the white sauce, or coconut milk, boiled the coconut milk with salt and pandan leaves.

Put the pomegranate in the bowl, then pour some coconut milk (based on your suitable). Enjoy it while warm..
