Living in Jakarta

I've finally arrived in Jakarta, Indonesia about two weeks ago. Life has been full of activities here and being around my family is such great joy. Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to bake very much here. The kitchen seemed very foreign and I have no ideas where things are located. :p

Oh well... I'll take my time to learn my way around my mom's kitchen.

I did make some pie crust this morning for an apple pie and I made some pastry cream for my cream puffs. :) Soo... look out for them soon!

Much love,


  1. Thank you for the update, Yoss-ta. Luv u!

  2. Hi! I am obsessed with cooking pies. I can never get the crust good... any hints?

  3. Ci Kiki,

    Love you too!!! Miss Maxie :)


    I'm still learning about the secret of getting a flaky pie crust. So far the two pointers that I've gathered from my research are:
    1. Use very cold butter
    2. Don't overwork the dough

    Hope this helps :)
