Rice Crackers


Pawon Jawa

The fire from the kitchen is important,

As most of the time it is the center of the household,

Place where everyone is looking for comfort,

As food is there,

And coldness stays away.

Looking forward to see some more of you,

Traditional kitchen here I come.

Another Look At The Kitchen


Pawon Senerek

Traditional cooking brings us,

To the past,

Giving a chance to learn,

And to reflect on history,

On the traditions of our ancestors,

Of best practices learned the hard way.

Pawon, is the heart of it.

Senerek is the melting pot.

Street Hawker - Iksa Menajang

Street hawker

Making a living in the streets

Selling things people buy

As they pass by .

Small business

Very small business

Run by strong people

Strong minds of the survivor.

Creativity is a must

Since the street is tough

To earn you must

Be different

Than so many others

Sharing the same street.

Pindang Indramayu - Iksa Menajang

Preparing all the fishes

Not arguing for lack of sleep

Or for coldness of the weather

Even it is raining hard the whole week

Flood surrounding the area.

Still she has to survive

The fermented fish, Pindang we call it

Must be sold

So she can earn another day’s living

For her and her family.
