It's been a while again. I've been so so so busy lately.
I feel it's been a long time since I am this busy, even my boyfriend admit that.
It's weird seeing me so busy T-T

Anyway, I've been trying to open my own business.. small one of course... online of course as I haven't got enough money to open a shop/cafe. Even though I wish someday I will be able to... Amin!
Well, it's a macaron shop. Why do I decide to make macarons not other sweet stuffs? Cos I think there is not much good macarons in Indo. It's not that I am that 100% confident that mine is perfect and taste heavenly but I am trying to offer the good one :)

I have made it for a week and it's getting better and better. Still not as perfect as the one in Melbourne but okayyy lahhhh..... Remember last time I was frustrated because my mom's oven is so small and unstable? Eh, did I post about it before or not yet? Oh well, anyway.. yes, my mom's even is a bit moody and made me suffered in the 1st week. I did a lot of trial and error and everything was just not right. But finally I get it, now I can do it perfectly with that small oven. hehehe...

Yes, I am planning to buy an oven. Gas oven. I know electric oven is more stable and the results is smoother. But in Indonesia, where electricity is so so expensive (considered by Indonesian) and where the electricity itself is unstable, it makes the temperature goes up and down whatever it likes (you actually need stabilizer for this), so my mom and I decided to use gas oven instead. The gas oven itself is cheaper. Wow! So gas it is!

Wish me luck and hope everything will run smoothly! Ciao!

how pretty it is!

Hi hi...
Can't believe it's September... it's been a while indeed since my last post.
Nothing much happened but I am here in Indonesia for good, my hometown to be exact.
A small but peaceful city called Solo. lol!

I am currently trying to adapt with the new life, new people and new environment.
Maybe it doesn't make sense to you why I need to adapt with my hometown as I was born and grew up here. But trust me, it matters!

For example, I get no more freedom by living with your parents. Second and third and fourth and etc, the citizen, the place, the weather, the goods in supermarket, oh no...!

Anw, enough with the complaints. I am trying to open something here based on my passion.
The big issue is I am a bit dilemma whether I should go to Jakarta and work in the big companies, living surrounded with my bf and best friends or opening my small business in this city. While I haven't got any job, I am trying to realize what I have in mind... which is baking. A lot of trying here, baking in a new country with this humid weather is torturing.

What I have mastered in Melbourne is all now gone. I need to start new from a scratch. I need to understand and get to know with Indonesia's ingredients (I can't even find an exact same egg and castor sugar here). The feeling when you baked something and it turns out to be disaster is torturing. Oh God, help me!

So, yes! This is what I've been struggling of. I tried to bake and make what I make turned out perfectly with the new ingredients. It's a disaster I must say. It's just exploring new things from the very beginning again. You play with the recipe, the ingredients, the weather and a lot lot lot of research again. Arghhh! So frustrating.

But, I know I won't give up until I really find and make the perfect one and finally succeed.
Wish me all the best so I can start my own dream very soon :)
