Happy Independence Day, Indonesia!!!

On August 17th 2020, my home country just celebrated the 75th year of independence. It is always so exciting to see our red and white flags put up everywhere on the streets, houses, cars, even pets; The euphoria that I could only feel unless I am back at home. My only memories of independence day celebration are the 2x ceremony at school, food discounts, red white ribbon for my pigtail, and prawn cracker eating competition.

To me, when you are travelling, or eating out in another country, it is not just about the taste that makes the food great. Taste is number one criteria, then also we look at price, portion, freshness and the most important is the “localness” or “trueness” of that food or how that food should be presented in the way its place of origin would present it. You sure know if some places look touristy by looking at the crowd, the translated menu, the photos ; that can be an indicator of tourist trap but that doesn't mean it is not "Local".
