The #international #community in #Breiðholt #Reykjavík shared the day, try to reach people through bridging language gaps, get to know all of the beauty & #culture which exsists among us: #food #art #traditionalperformance #multiplelanguages.
One of benefits #livingabroad is we are very proud to introduce our incredible Indonesian culture, including our yummy tasty spicy #Indonesianfood to the #internationalcommunity 😁 It is more fun since the money from #sellingfood will be delivered to the orphanages and education centers in Indonesia 🇮🇩 Hopefully this small action will help to increase the education accessibility, especially for children living in poverty.
Behind our smiling faces during the awesome event is: (1) Long hours working in the kitchen to prepare & cook the food. For my case, cooking in the kitchen after sahoor, from 4 AM to 7 AM, before get prepare to go to work, for several days. Well, it was the only available time for me to prepare the food I will sell for the event. Well, during Ramadhan, there is big changes in my day-to-day life for sleeping, eating and doing household tasks at home. Folks who know how complicated to make #rissole and #springroll with your bare hands, one by one, you know how I feel 😉 (2) Realize sometimes shit happens in the kitchen. For my case, when some of my rissoles are overcooked & burned alias gosong so I have no choice but throw them away straight to trash bin 😂 (3) Can't taste thoroughly the food that I will sell to people because I cooked them during my #Ramadhan #fasting time made me scared & frustrated. How about if the food is not delicious? How about if people don't like them? (4) I am amazed this international community opens their mind to the new things, diversity. They are brave enough to try our Indonesian food which maybe somehow strange for some of them 😜 For example, they are curious to try banana chocolate spring rolls alias #piscok for #dessert 🍌 🍫 Maybe they just used to savory spring rolls, not the sweet ones 😁 The good news is they just bought & tried my chicken carrots no matter the taste & shape is not as perfect as the ones you can find in Indonesia 😝
