learning to make traditional food...

In the last week I have been "experiencing"a lot.  This has given me a chance to compile pictures of different things which we will later go back through with our language helper.  Today I learned to make opar ayam.  This is a traditional way of cooking chicken with natural herbs and coconut milk. 

 grinding the fresh herbs by hand
 everything is fried here....
 even the seasons get fried
 adding fresh jeruk "orange" leaves and bay leaves

And there ya have it...Hudson wasn't super keen on it. He would rather just eat rice and ketchup :(  But still asked for second helpings!!
