A Touch of Spice


 
This is an old post from my personal blog. Lame attempt to fill in the gap of not blogging *sigh*.
 
“Pepper… is hot and scorches, just like the sun.
Salt… is used as needed to spice up one’s life.
Cinnamon… is bitter and sweet, just like a woman.”

 
Oh, what a wonderful movie!
 
I blessed the day I found this Greek movie. Not only for my sole purpose of paying the most respect to the profession of gastronome, but in this case, it goes a long way to respecting life, dedication, art, culture, passion, love, faith, fun, sadness, pain, happiness, enjoyment of all things human beings are blessed with. Spices are all we need. Just a touch of them.
 
Very very artistic pictures, beautiful music, witty screenwriting, tingling lines. Just the perfect blend.
 
“Don’t look back, Saime. At the platform we looked back, the image remains as a promise..”
Me, sobbing painfully. Absorbing all the experience to the point where the blow of tears was inevitably destined to be. Don’t look back. The image remains as a promise.

Funny that I happened to be a great fan of Greek cuisine. Oh, how I miss Kafe Acropolis I used to visit often at Mal Ambasador!
 
Take me to a Greek resto, I will forever be your slave.
 
By the by, if you chew nothing else other than English speaking movie, you’ll probably throw up on this. For me, it’s simply a refreshment from the Hollywood junk.

  3. Hi Riana, some time ago, I ate something in Manado and I’m soooo much longing to find out the name and recipe for it. It looked like a brown muffin cooked in a little banana leaf cup. But the texture was different than a muffin, I think it was more like a bread dough using yeast. Does it ring a bell? I wonder if it’s something traditional or just the creation of the hotel cook. I’d be grateful if you know what it is and share the recipe.
    Thanks for your help.

    I think you’re talking about Apang Coe. Do google the word Apang Coe, you’ll come up with plenty of recipes you can try. I never tried to make one, now you got me thinking🙂 Apang Coe is a Manado traditional snack. I figured making the takir (the pandan leaf cup) could be quite challenging, though exciting at the same time. ———-Riana
