Day 3: KC and Hong Choong’s Jackfruit Tree
The Choong’s are the parents of the bride of the very first wedding we organized in Bali in 2007. They became dear friends over our shared love of Balinese culture, a giving philosophy in life and of course, all things delicious!
They gave us a 5-year loan that helped with the purchase of the land. When we repaid the loan in 3 and a half years, K.C. said that had never happened with his other loans before. He was genuinely surprised that we paid him back at all!
K.C. is obsessed with “Adi’s Es Campur”, a refreshing mix of tapioca pearls, jackfruit, mango, young coconut and homemade coconut cream. Usually, this colourful snack is sold on the streets with questionable hygiene. Whereas Adi’s version has only the ripest fruit from our trees and freshly extracted coconut cream.
So yes, The Choong’s tree is one of our gorgeous mature Jackfruit Trees that was here when we found the land in 2009.
Do you know that inside this spiky fruit is the most fragrant orange coloured flesh?
Our cooking school was built on love which is why we named it “Tresna” meaning “Love” in Balinese.
Our closest family and friends contributed to our school from the moment we found the land in 2009. Whether it was giving us a loan to buy the land in 2009, funding kitchen equipment by booking classes in 2015 or coming to stay with us in The Little Wooden Cottage when we finally opened in 2017!
For the next 25 days, we’ll feature different trees in our garden. Santi painted each sign on wood that Adi gathered. When we walk around our garden or even glance out during breakfast, we are constantly reminded of how much love surrounds us. Thank you my dear family and friends.
