I tell a little bit story of what is "TUMPENG". Tumpeng is yellow rice formed in shape of cone. There are many shapes of tumpeng now day but the cone shape is an old fashion way and popular. Most Indonesian specially people who come from Java island like to celebrate life with tumpeng. It could be a celebration of happiness such as birthday, anniversary and wedding.

Generally tumpeng is served along with some of Indonesian food and add some of food craving as a decoration. Side dishes come along with this tumpeng is;
1. curly fried eggs
2. spicy taste of anchovy, peanut and shredded potatoes
3. perkedel (Indonesian) is like mash potatoes mix with ground beef and some spices. Formed them around shape and fry
4. fried chicken
5. urap is like salad with coconut flakes
6. serundeng is mix of coconut flakes with Tempe and some spices
7. stir fry green beans and shrimp
8. fried tofu
9. kerupuk is indonesian crackers

This is a FRIENDSHIP CELEBRATION. Our friend Sinar and her son Christopher came from Washington and stay for a couples of day. So I though this will be a good day to celebrate our friendship that has been tied in for over some years.
Only few of Indonesian people live in this township. They are all came and bring some comfort food then we decorate those food on the side of tumpeng.

Not forget to give thank to Roossy, Sinar, Mia, Eri and Fonny.
Thank you very much for participating to make this tumpeng.

Tumpeng-nya cakep banget...halus. Punya cetakannya ya?! Kita di sini kalo bikin tumpeng pake cetakan darurat (karton yang dilapisi plastik), jadi hasilnya ga smooth kayak bikinan mbak Dwiana.

Btw, ntar resep cake-nya menyusul ya.... :D

Wah..tumpengnya cantik banget, kebayang deh bikinnya luamma, soalnya pelengkapnya itu banyak..keliatan enak lagi. Jadi laperrr. Aku punya juga tuh cetakannya dikasih temen, tapi belum pernah dipake karena akhirnya aku masukin rice cooker yg ada magic jarnya biar tetep anget..he..he, padahal klo dibentuk tumpeng jadi bagus banget ya.

hi! thanks for dropping by my site.

you know i have been stumbling upon a lot of food blogs. everytime i visit a site with pictures of food, it really makes my mouth water and get hungry.

i will definitely visit you again or better yet, if it's ok to link you up, i will add you into my links. please let me know.

your photo blog is also cool. wish i can get into photography too. but i don't have that much patience and not technologically good at all.

regards & see you around.
